CHAPTER XX - Marriage by Quetzalcoatl

Ramon looked them both in the face, and knew. Kate, in her new elusiveness, laughed softly.
`There is another flower opened in the garden of Quetzalcoatl,' said Cipriano in Spanish.
`Under the red cannas of Huitzilopochtli,' said Ramon.
`Yes, there, Senor,' said Cipriano. 'Pero una florecita tan zarca! Y abrio en mi sombra, amigo.'
`Seishombre de la alta fortuna.'
'Verdad!'
It was about five in the afternoon. The wind hissed in the leaves, and suddenly the rain was streaming down in a white smoke of power. The ground was a solid white smoke of water, the lake was gone.
`You will have to stay here to-night,' said Cipriano to Kate in Spanish, in the soft, lapping Indian voice.
`But the rain will leave off,' she said.
`You will have to stay here,' he repeated, in the same Spanish phrase, in a curious voice like a breath of wind.
Kate looked at Ramon, blushing. He looked back at her, she thought, very remote, as if looking at her from far, far away. 'The bride of Huitzilopochtli,' he said, with a faint smile. 'Thou, Quetzalcoatl, thou wilt have to marry us,' said Cipriano.
`Do you wish it?' said Ramon.
`Yes!' she said. `I want you to marry us, only you.' `When the sun goes down,' said Ramon.

The cool water continued to come down, rushing with a smoke of speed down from heaven.
As the twilight came through the unceasing rain, a woman servant brought Kate a sleeveless dress or chemise of white linen, scalloped at the bottom and embroidered with stiff blue flowers upside-down on the black stalks, with two stiff green leaves. In the centre of the flowers was the tiny Bird of Quetzalcoati.
`The Patr6n asks that you put this on!' said the woman, bringing also a lamp and a little note.
The note was from Ramon, saying in Spanish: `Take the dress of the bride of Huitzilopochtli, and put it on, and take off
