CHAPTER XX - Marriage by Quetzalcoatl

twilight of the Pan world. Her self had abandoned her, and all her day was gone. Only she said to herself:
`My demon lover!'
Her world could end in many ways, and this was one of them. Back to the twilight of the ancient Pan world, where the soul of woman was dumb, to be forever unspoken.
The car had stopped, they had come to Jamiltepec. He looked at her again, as reluctantly he opened the door. And as he stepped out, she realized again his uniform, his small figure in uniform. She had lost it entirely. She had only known his face, the face of the supreme god-demon; with the arching brows and slightly slanting eyes, and the loose, light tuft of a goatbeard. The Master. The everlasting Pan.
He was looking back at her again, using all his power to prevent her seeing in him the little General in uniform, in the worldly vision. And she avoided his eyes, and saw nothing.
They found Ramon sitting in his white clothes in a long chair on the terrace. He was creamy-brown in his pallor.
He saw at once the change in Kate. She had the face of one waking from the dead, curiously dipped in death, with a tenderness far more new and vulnerable than a child's. He glanced at Cipriano. Cipriano's face seemed darker than usual, with that secret hauteur and aloofness of the savage. He knew it well.
`Are you better?' Kate asked.
`Very nearly!' he said, looking up at her gently. `And you?'
`Yes, I am all right.'
`You are?'
`Yes, I think so. - I have felt myself all lost, since that day. Spiritually, I mean. Otherwise I am all right. Are you healing well?'
`Oh, yes! I always heal quickly.'
`Knives and bullets are horrible things.'
`Yes - in the wrong place.'
Kate felt rather as if she were coming to, from a swoon, as Ramon spoke to her and looked at her. His eyes, his voice seemed kind. Kind? The word suddenly was strange to her, she had to try to get its meaning.
There was no kindness in Cipriano. The god-demon Pan preceded kindness. She wondered if she wanted kindness. She did not know. Everything felt numb.
