CHAPTER XXV- Teresa

'Yes, I am very well.'
Teresa had a new, soft bloom on her dark skin, something Frail and tender, which she did not want to have to defend against another woman.
`I think I will go home now Ramon has come,' said Kate. `Oh, why? Do you wish to?' `I think I'd better.'
`Then I will go with you to Sayula. In the boat, no?'
Kate put her few things together. She had slept badly. The night had been black, black, with something of horror in it. As when the bandits had attacked Ramon. She could see the scar in his back, in the night. And the drumming crash of falling water, menacing and horrible, seemed to keep up for hours.
In her soul, Kate felt Teresa's contempt for her way of wifehood.
`I have been married too,' Kate had said. `To a very exceptional man, whom I loved.'
'Ah, yes!' said Teresa. `And he died.'
`He wanted to die.'
'Ah, yes ! He wanted to die.'
`I did my level best to prevent him from wearing himself out.'
'Ah, yes, to prevent him.'
`What else could I have done?' flashed Kate in anger.
`If you could have given him your life, he would not even have wanted to die.'
`I did give him my life. I loved him - oh, you will never know. - But he didn't want my soul. He believed I should keep a soul of my own.'
'Ah, yes, men are like that, when they are merely men. When a man is warm and brave - then he wants the woman to give him her soul, and he keeps it in his womb, so he is more than a mere man, a single man. I know it. I know where my soul is. It is in Ramon's womb, the womb of a man, just as his seed is in mywomb, the womb of a woman. He is a man, and a column of blood. I am a woman, and a valley of blood. I shall not contradict him. How can I? My soul is inside him, and I am far from contradicting him when he is trying with all his might to do somethinz that he knows about. He won't die, and they
