CHAPTER XXVII - Here!

`Never!' she said. `I'm absolutely sure about myself.,
They had been sitting in the garden of the Villa Aragon, under the poinsettia tree with the huge scarlet petal-leaves, like soft red quill feathers. The morning was becoming hot. The lake had gone still, with the fallen wind. Everything was still. Save the long scarlet of the poinsettia.
Christmas was coming! The poinsettia reminded Kate of it.
Christmas! Holly-berries! England! Presents! Food! - If she hurried, she could be in England for Christmas. It felt so safe, so familiar, so normal, the thought of Christmas at home, in England, with her mother. And all the exciting things she could tell to the people at home ! And all the exciting gossip she could hear 1 In the distance, it looked very attractive. - She still had a qualm as to what the actual return would be like.
`One can have too much of a good thing,' she said to Ramon.

`I don't know. - Ramon has gone to Sayula, to see the Jefe. He wouldn't wait for us, to come with us in the boat.'
`I suppose he was in a hurry,' said Kate.
`How fine these Noche Buenas are!' said Teresa, looking at the brilliant spread of the red poinsettias.

`How awful, Christmas with hibiscus and poinsettia! It
