The Overland Monthly, Vol. 10 : July-December, 1887 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Overland Monthly, Vol. 10: July-December, 1887 Dona Isabel's face clouded. Upon the next day she had hoped to part company with her unwelcome guest forever; and now part of her purpose in leaving the haci enda was already frustrated. Ruiz was scarcely less disquieted; a glance at Chinita's triumphant countenance confirmed his apr prehensions. Pepe, at least, had not returned to the hacienda. He had had it in his mind to have the servant strictly watched. It had not occurred to him that upon the first day he would attempt to evade him, and fulfill Chinita's wild project of summoning Ramirez. He inwardly cursed his own folly, and the duplicity of Ashley, whom he had not for a moment supposed in sympathy with the plot. They had even laughed at it together as the foolish dream of an imaginative girl. Now to his apprehensions was added a burning jealousy. For Chinita's sake the American had doubtless made her cause his own; with such an ally it was not impossible that he might see himself confronted by the man, who, he knew well, never forgave a slight, never left unrevenged an injury.
