CHAPTER XXIV - Malintzi

`Yes!' she replied, `I say it.'
Convulsive flames of joy and triumph seemed to go over his face. He lit two candles in front of Huitzilopochtli.
`Come!' he said. `Put on the green dress.'
He took her to the vestry, where were many folded serapes, and the silver bowl and other implements of the church, and left her while she put on the dress of Malintzi she had worn when Ramon married them.
When she stepped out she found Cipriano naked and in his paint, before the statue of Huitzilopochtli, on a rug of jaguar skins.
`I am the living Huitzilopochtli,' he murmured to her in a sort of ecstasy.
`You are Malintzi,' he said. `The bride of Huitzilopochtli.'
The convulsion of exultance went over his face. He took her hand in his left hand, and they stood facing the bluish light.
`Cover your face!' he said to her.
They covered their faces in the salute.
`Now salute Quetzalcoatl.' And he flung up his arm. She held out her left hand, in the woman's salute.
Then they turned to the statue of Huitzilopochtli.
`Salute Huitzilopochtli!' he said, bringing his right fist down with a smash in the palm of his left hand. But this was the male salute. He taught her to press her hands together in front of her breast, then shoot them out towards the idol.
Then he put a little lamp of earthenware between the feet of Huitzilopochtli. From the right knee of the idol he took a little black vessel of oil, making her take a little white vessel from the god's left knee.
`Now,' he said, `together we fill the lamp.'
And together they poured the oil from their little pitchers, into the saucer-shaped lamp.
`Now together we light it,' he said.
He took one of the two candles burning before the black idol, she took the other, and with the flames dripping and leaping together, they kindled the floating wick of the lamp. It burned in a round blue bud, then rose higher.
`Blow out your candle,' he said. `It is our Morning Star.'
They blew out the two candles. It was almost dark now, with the slow light, like a snow-drop, of their united lives floating
