CHAPTER XX - Marriage by Quetzalcoatl

`I feel they'll let you down,' said Kate to Ramon.
`Maybe! But I shan't let myself down. I do what I believe in. Possibly I am only the first step round the corner of change. But: ce n'est que le premier pas qui coute - Why will you not go round the corner with us? At least it is better than sitting still.'
Kate did not answer his question. She sat looking at the mango-trees and the lake, and the thought of that afternoon came over her again.
`How did those two men get in; those two bandits on the roof?' she asked wonderingly.
`It was a woman this time; a girl whom Carlota brought here from the Cuna in Mexico City, to be a sewing girl and to teach the peon's wives to sew and do little things. She had a little room at the end of the terrace there -' Ramon pointed to the terrace projecting towards the lake, opposite the one where his own room was, and the covered balcony. `She got entangled with one of the peons; a sort of second overseer, called Guillermo.

But she had had a smattering of education, and thought she was equal to anything. She got messages through to Guillermo, and he ran away and joined her in Mexico, leaving wife and four children here.

`One day appeared Guillermo, and said: could he come back? I said not with Maruca. He said he didn't want Maruca, he wanted to come back. His wife was willing to go back to him again with the children. The blacksmith was willing to let her go. I said very well; but he had forfeited his job as suboverseer, and must be a peon again.
`And he seemed all right - satisfied. But then Maruca came and stayed in Sayula, pretending to make her living as a dressmaker. She was in with the priest; and she got Guillermo again.
`It seems the Knights of Cortes had promised a big reward for the man who would bring in my scalp; secretly, of course. The girl got Guillermo: Guillermo got those two peons, one
