CHAPTER XXI - The Opening of the Church

`They are singing the song of Welcome to Quetzalcoatl,' said he.
'Is that it?' said Kate. `What are the words?'
`I will find you a song-sheet,' he said.
He stood beside her, putting the spell of his presence over her. And she still struggled a little, as if she were drowning. When she wasn't drowning, she wanted to drown. But when it actually came, she fought for her old footing.
There was a crying noise from Carlota. Kate hurried to the bed.
`Where am I?' said the white-faced, awful, deathly-looking woman.
`You are resting in bed,' said Kate. `Don't trouble.'
`Where was I?' came Carlota's voice.
`Perhaps the sun gave you a touch of sunstroke,' said Kate.
Carlota closed her eyes.
Then suddenly outside the noise of drums rolled again, a powerful sound. And outside in the sunshine life seemed to be rolling in powerful waves.
Carlota started, and opened her eyes.
`What is that noise?'
`It is a fiesta,' said Kate.
`Ramon, he's murdered me, and lost his own soul,' said CarIota. `He has murdered me, and lost his own soul. He is a murderer, and one of the damned. The man I married! The man I married! A murderer among the damned!'
It was evident she no longer heard the sounds outside.
Cipriano could not bear the sound of her voice. He came quickly to the side of the bed.
`Dona Carlota!' he said, looking down at her dulled hazel eyes, that were fixed and unseeing: `Do not die with wrong words on your lips. If you are murdered, you have murdered yourself. You were never married to Ramon. You were married to your own way.'
He spoke fiercely, avengingly.
'Ah!' said the dying woman. 'Ah! I never married Ramon. No! I never married him! How could I? He was not what I would have him be. How could I marry him? Ah! I thought I married him. Ah! I am so glad I didn't - so glad.'
`You are glad! You are glad!' said Cipriano in anger, angry
