CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

`He is outside.'
`How is he?'
` He is dead.'
The dark eyes under the black lashes were perfectly steady and changeless. Then came the voice:
`Pity we did not kill them all. Pity we did not kill them all. We have got to kill them all. - Where is the Senora Inglesa?'
`Here she is.'
His black eyes looked up at Kate. Then more of his consciousness came back.
`Thank you for my life,' he said, closing his eyes. Then: `Put the lamp aside.'
Soldiers were tapping at the glass pane, for the lieutenant. A black little fellow entered, wiping the rain from his black face and pushing his thick black hair back.
`There are two more dead on the atiotea,' he announced to his officer.
The lieutenant rose, and followed him out. Kate too went on to the terrace. In the early darkness the rain was threshing down. A lantern was coming down from the roof: it came along the terrace to the stairs, and after it two soldiers in the pouring rain, carrying a dead body, then behind, two more, with the other body. The huarache.r of the soldiers clicked and shuffled on the wet terrace. The dismal cortege went downstairs.
Kate stood on the terrace facing the darkness, while the rain threshed down. She felt uneasy here, in this house of men and of soldiers. She found her way down to the kitchen, where the boy was fanning a charcoal fire, and the woman was crushing tomatoes on the metate, for a sauce.
`Ay, Senora!' cried the woman. `Five men dead, and the Patron wounded to death! Ay ! Ay !'
`Seven men dead !' said the boy. `Two on the AZOTEA!'
'Seven men! Seven men!'
Kate sat on her chair, stunned, unable to hear anything but the threshing rain, unable to feel anything more. Two or three peons came in, and two more women, the men wrapped to their noses in their blankets. The women brought masa, and began a great clapping of tortillas. The people conversed in low, rapid tones, in the dialect, and Kate could not listen.
