Angelina said.Manuel, Raul called.When Manuel appeared, Raul pointed to the bat and said, Drive it out.Manuel brought his wide-brimmed hat, waved it, and chased the bat outdoors.

He said nothing, but the way he moved expressed acceptance and pleasure. He had the grace of an old cat.After Manuel went out, Raul said: Ive been thinking about Manuel, how he and I used to fly kites. He would take the kite on top of the house, where the roofs flat. Wed let out balls of string. He must have been thirty years old then. I remember his face—so full of smiles. He was patient with me. He knew the things a boy wanted to do. Horses. Hunting.

Who had made the first mistake? Gradually, like a candlelit picture, Luciennes face appeared, hazel eyes serious.
