CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

At length the rain began to abate. She knew it would leave off suddenly. There was a great sound of water running, gushing, splashing, pouring into the cistern. And she thought to herself: The rain will wash the blood off the roof and down the spouts into the cistern. There will be blood in the water.
She looked at her own blood-smeared white frock. She felt chilly. She rose to go upstairs again, into the dark, empty, masterless house.
`Ah, Seiiora! You are going upstairs? Go, Daniel, carry the lantern for the Senora!'
The boy lit a candle in a lantern, and Kate returned to the upper terrace. The light shone out of the room where Ramon was. She went into the salon and got her hat and her brown shawl. The lieutenant heard her, and came to her quickly, very kindly and respectful.
`Won't you come in, Senora?' he said, holding the door to the room where Ramon lay; the guest-room.
Kate went in. Ramon lay on his side, his black, rather thin moustache pushed against the pillow. He was himself.
,It is very unpleasant for you here, Senora Caterina,' he said. `Would you like to go to your house? The lieutenant will send you in the motor-car.'
`Is there nothing I can do here?' she said.
'Ah no l Don't stay here! It is too unpleasant for you. - shall soon get up, and I shall come to thank you for my life.'
He looked at her, into her eyes. And she saw that his soul had come back to him, and with his soul he saw her and acknowledged her; though always from the peculiar remoteness that was inevitable in him.
She went downstairs with the young lieutenant.
'Ah, what a horrible affair! They were not bandits, Senora!' said the young man, with passion. `They didn't come to rob. They came to murder Don Ramon, you know, Senora! simply to murder Don Ramon. And but for your being here, they would have done it !- Ah, think of it, Senora! Don Ramon is the most precious man in Mexico. It is possible that in the world there is not a man like him. And personally, he hasn't got enemies. As a man among men, he hasn't got enemies. No, Senora. Not one! But do you know who it will be? the priests, and the Knights of Cortes.'
