CHAPTER XX - Marriage by Quetzalcoatl

`Yes! Some! Not many, no? Perhaps a hundred. We can never tell, no? Maybe two hundred.'
He waved his hand vaguely.
`But you had the worst rebellion at Jamiltepec, no?' he said suddenly, with heavy Indian gravity, gloom suddenly settling down.
`It didn't last long, but it was rather awful while it did.'
`Rather awful, no? - If I had known! I said to Ramon, won't you keep the soldiers? - the guard, no? He said they were not necessary. But here - you never know, no?'
`Nina!' cried Juana, from the terrace. `Nina! Don Antonio says he is coming to see you.'
`Tell him to come to-morrow.'
`Already he is on the way!' cried Juana, in helplessness. Don Antonio was Kate's fat landlord; and, of course, Juana's permanent master, more important in her eyes, then, even than hate.
`Here he is!' she cried, and fled.
Kate leaned forward in her chair, to see the stout figure of her landlord on the walk outside the window, taking off his cloth cap and bowing low to her. A cloth cap! - She knew he was a great Fascista, the reactionary Knights of Cortes held him in great esteem.
Kate bowed coldly.
He bowed low again, with the cloth cap. Kate said not a word.
He stood on one foot, then on the other, and then marched forward up the gravel walk, towards the kitchen quarters, as if he had not seen either Kate or General Viedma. In a few moments he marched back, as if he could not see either Kate or the General, through the open door.
Cipriano looked at the passing stout figure of Don Antonio in a cloth cap as if it were the wind blowing.
`It is my landlord!' said Kate. `I expect he wants to know if I am taking on the house for another three months.'
`Ramdn wanted me to come and see you - to see how you are, no? - and to ask you to come to Jamiltepec. Will you come with me now? The car is here.'
`Must I?' said Kate, uneasily.
`No. Not unless you wish. Ramon said, not unless you wished.
