CHAPTER XXV- Teresa

Teresa must have divined something of her thought, for she said, looking at Ramon:
`Senora! But for you Ramon would have been killed. Always I think of it.'
`Don't think of it,' said Kate. `Something else would have happened. Anyhow it wasn't I, it was destiny.'
'Ah, but you were the destiny !' said Teresa.
`Now there is a hostess, won't you come and stay some time at Jamiltepec?' said Ramon.
`Oh, do! Do come!' cried Teresa.
`But do you really want me?' said Kate, incredulous. `Yes! Yes !' cried Teresa.
`She needs a woman-friend,' said Ramon gently.
`Yes, I do!' she cried. `I have never had a true, true woman friend: only when I was at school, and we were girls.'
Kate doubted very much her own capacity for being a true, true woman-friend to Teresa. She wondered what the two of them saw in her. As what did they see her?
`Yes, I should like to come for a few days,' she replied.
`Oh, yes !' cried Teresa. `When will you come?'
The day was agreed.
`And we will write the Song of Malintzi,' said Ramon.
`Don't do that!' cried Kate quickly.
He looked at her, in his slow, wondering way. He could make her feel, at moments, as if she were a sort of child and as if he were a ghost.
Kate went to Jamiltepec, and before the two women knew it, almost, they were making dresses for Teresa, cutting up the pineapple-coloured muslin. Poor Teresa, for a bride she had a scanty wardrobe: nothing but her rather pathetic black dresses that somehow made her look poor, and a few old white dresses. She had lived for her father - who had a good library of Mexicana and was all his life writing a history of the State of Jalisco - and for the hacienda. And it was her proud boast that Las Yemas was the only hacienda, within a hundred miles range, which had not been smashed at all during the revolutions that followed the flight of Porfirio Diaz.
Teresa had a good deal of the nun in her. But that was because she was deeply passionate, and deep passion tends to hide within itself, rather than expose itself to vulgar contact.
