CHAPTER XXV- Teresa

Yes, Kate was accustomed to looking on other women as inferiors. But the tables were suddenly turned. Even as, in her soul, she knew Ramon to be a greater man than Cipriano, suddenly she had to question herself, whether Teresa was not a greater Teresal A greater woman than Kate? What a blow! Surely it was impossible!
Yet there it was. Ramon had wanted to marry Teresa, not Kate. And the flame of his marriage with Teresa she saw both in his eyes and in Teresa's. A flame that was not in Kate's eyes.
Kate's marriage with Cipriano was curious and momentary. When Cipriano was away, Kate was her old individual self. Only when Cipriano was present, and then only sometimes, did the connection overwhelm her.
When Teresa turned and looked at her with this certain flame, touched with indignation, Kate quailed. Perhaps for the first time in her life she quailed and felt abashed: repentant.
Kate even knew that Teresa felt a little repugnance for her: for the foreign white woman who talked as cleverly as a man and who never gave her soul: who did not believe in giving her soul. All these well-dressed, beautiful women fromAmerica or England, Europe, they all kept their souls for themselves, in a sort of purse, as it were.
Teresa was determined that Kate should leave off treating her, very, very indefinably, as an inferior. It was how all the foreign women treated the Mexican women. Because the foreign women were their own mistresses! They even tried to be condescending to Ramdn.
But Ramon! He could look at them and make them feel small, feel really nothing, in spite of all their money and their experience and their air of belonging to the ruling races. The ruling races ! Wait ! Ramon was a challenge to all that. Let those rule who can.
`You did not sleep?' Teresa said to Kate.
`Not very well,' said Kate.
`No, you look as if you had not slept very well. - Under your eyes.'
Kate smoothed the skin under her eyes, querulously.
`One gets that look in Mexico,' she said. `It's not an easy
