he ground. “The Maria and all such things are apart,” he said. ghd hair styler “That you and the Maria should make use of what time there is as two human beings. If I can aid thee I am at thy orders. But for the thing of tomorrow I will obey thee blindly. If it is necessary that one should die for the thing of tomorrow one goes gladly and with the heart light.” “Thus do I feel,” Robert Jordan said. “But to hear it from thee brings pleasure.” “And more,” Agustin said. “That one above,” he pointed toward Primitivo, “is a dependable value. The Pilar is much, much air max 90 more than thou canst imagine. The old man Anselmo, also. Andres also. Eladio also. Very quiet, but a dependable element. And Fernando. I do not know how thou hast appreciated him. It is true he is heavier than mercury. He is fuller of boredom than a steer drawing a cart on the highroad. But to fight and to do as he is told. _Es muy hombre!_ Thou wilt see.” “We are lucky.” “No. We have two weak elements. The gypsy and Pablo. But the band of Sordo are as much better than we are as we are better than goat manure.” “All is well then.” “Yes,” Agustin said. “But I wish it was for today.” “Me, too. To finish with it. But it is not.” “Do you think it will be bad?” “It can be.” “But thou are very cheerful now, _Ingles_.” ghd mk4 “Yes.” “Me also. In spite of this of the Maria and all.” “Do you know why?” “No.” “Me neither. Perhaps it is the day. The day is good.” ghd products “Who knows? Perhaps it is that we will have action.” “I think it is that,” Robert Jordan said. “But not today. Of all things; of all importance we must avoid it today.” As he spoke he heard something. It was a noise far off that came above the sound of the warm wind in the trees. He could not be sure and he held his mouth open and listened, glancing up at Primitivo as he did so. He thought he heard it but then it was gone. The wind was blowing in the pines and now Robert Jordan strained all of himself to listen. Then he heard it faintly coming down the wind. “It is nothing tragic with me,” he heard Agustin say. “That I should never have the Maria is nothing. I will go with the air max whores as always.” “Shut up,” he said, not listening, and lying beside him, his head having been turned away. Agustin looked over at him suddenly. “_Que pasa?_” he asked. Robert Jordan put his hand over his own mouth and went on listening. There it came again. It came faint, muted, dry and far away. But there was no mistaking it now. It was the precise, crackling, curling roll of automatic rifle fire. It sounded as though pack after pack of miniature firecrackers were going off at a distance that was almost out of hearing. Robert Jordan looked up at Primitivo who had his head up now, his face looking toward them, his hand cupped to his ear. As he looked Primitivo pointed up the mountain toward the highest country. “They are fighting at El Sordo’s,” Robert Jordan said. “Then let us go to aid them,” Agustin said. “Collect the people. _Vamonos_.” “No,” Robert Jordan said. “We stay here.” 25 Robert Jordan looked up at where Primitivo stood now in his lookout post, holding his rifle and pointing. He nodded his head but the man kept pointing, putting his hand to his ear and then pointing insistently and as though he could not possibly have been understood. “Do you stay with this gun and unless it is sure, sure, sure that they are coming in do not fire. And then not until they reach that shrub,” Robert Jordan pointed. “Do you understand?” “Yes. But–” “No but. I will explain to thee later. I go to Primitivo.” Anselmo was by him and he said to the old man: “_Viejo_, stay there with Agustin with the gun.” He spoke slowly and unhurriedly. “He ghd hair straightener price must not fire unless cavalry is actually entering. If they merely present themselves he must let them alone as we did before. If he must fire, hold the legs of the tripod firm for him and hand him the pans when they are empty.” “Good,” the old man said. “And La Granja?” “Later.” Robert Jordan climbed up, over and around the gray boulders that were wet now under his hands as he pulled himself up. The sun was melting the snow on them fast. The tops of the boulders were drying and as he climbed he looked across the country and saw the pine woods and the long open glade and the dip of the country before the high mountains beyond. Then he stood beside Primitivo in a hollow behind two boulders and the short, brownfaced man said to him, “They are attacking Sordo. What is it that we do?” “Nothing,” Robert Jordan said. He heard the firing clearly here and as he looked across the country, he saw, far off, across the distant valley where the country rose steeply again, a troop of cavalry ride out of the timber and cross the snowy slope riding uphill in the direction of the firing. He saw the oblong double line of men and horses dark against the snow as they forced at an angle up the hill. He watched the double line top the ridge and go into the farther timber. “We have to aid them,” Primitivo said. His voice was dry and flat. “It is impossible,” Robert Jordan told him. “I have expected this all morning.” “How?” “They went to steal horses last night. The snow stopped and they tracked them up there.” “But we have to aid them,” Primitivo said. “We cannot leave them alone to this. Those are our comrades.” Robert Jordan put his hand on the other man’s shoulder. “We can do nothing,” he said. “If we could I would do it.” “There is a way to reach there from above. We can take that way with the horses and the two guns. This one below and thine. We can aid them thus.” “Listen–” Robert Jordan said. “_That_ is what I listen to,” Primitivo said. The firing was rolling in overlapping waves. Then they heard the noise of hand grenades heavy and sodden in the dry rolling of the automatic rifle fire. “They are lost,” Robert Jordan said. “They were lost when the snow stopped. If we go there we are lost, too. It is impossible to divide what force we have.” There was a gray stubble of beard stippled over Primitivo’s jaws, his lip and his neck. The rest of his face was flat brown with a broken, flattened nose and deep-set gray eyes, and watching him Robert Jordan saw the stubble twitching at the corners of his mouth and over the cord of his throat. “Listen to it,” he said. “It is a massacre.” “If they have surrounded the hollow it is that,” Robert Jordan said. “Some may have gotten out.” “Coming on them now we could take them from behind,” Primitivo said. “Let four of us go with the horses.” “And then what? What happens after you take them from behind?” “We join with Sordo.” “To die there? Look at the sun. The day is long.” The sky was high and cloudless and the sun was hot on their backs. There were big bare patches now on the southern slope of the open glade below them and the snow was all dropped from the pine trees. The boulders below them that had been buy ghd straighteners wet as the snow melted were steaming faintly now in the hot sun. “You have to stand it,” Robert Jordan said. “_Hay que aguantarse_. There are things like this in a war.” “But there is nothing we can do? Truly?” Primitivo looked at him and Robert Jordan knew he trusted him. “Thou couldst not send me and another with the small machine gun?” “It would be useless,” Robert Jordan said. He thought he saw something that he was looking for but it was a hawk that slid down into the wind and then rose above the line of the farthest pine woods. “It would be useless if we all went,” he said. Just then the firing doubled in intensity and in it was the heavy bumping of the hand grenades ghd flat iron . “Oh, obscenity them,” Primitivo said with an absolute devoutness of blasphemy, tears in ghd pure his eyes and his cheeks twitching. “Oh, God and the Virgin, obscenity them in the milk of their filth.” “Calm thyself,” Robert Jordan said. “You will be fighting them soon enough. Here comes the woman.” Pilar was climbing up to them, making heavy going of it in the boulders. Primitivo kept saying. “Obscenity them. Oh, God and the Virgin, befoul them,” each time for firing rolled down the wind, and Robert Jordan climbed down to help Pilar up. “_Que tal_, woman,” he said, taking hold of both her wrists and hoisting as she climbed heavily over the last boulder. “Thy binoculars,” she said and lifted their strap over her head. “So it has come to Sordo?” “Yes.” “_Pobre_,” she said in commiseration. “Poor Sordo.” She was breathing heavily from the climb and she took hold of Robert Jordan’s hand and gripped it tight in hers as she looked out over the country. “How does the combat seem?” “Bad. Very bad.” “He’s _jodido?_” “I believe so.” “_Pobre_,” she said. “Doubtless because of the horses?” “Probably.” ” ghd straighteners uk _Pobre_,” Pilar said. Then, “Rafael recounted me all of an entire novel of dung about cavalry. What came?” “A patrol and part of a squadron.” “Up to what point?” Robert Jordan pointed out where the patrol had stopped and showed her where the gun was hidden. From where they stood they nike air max could just see one of Agustin’s boots protruding from the rear of the blind. “The gypsy said they rode to where the gun muzzle pressed against the chest of the horse of the leader,” Pilar said. “What a race! Thy glasses were in the cave.” “Have you packed?” “All that can be taken. Is there news of Pablo?” “He was forty minutes ahead of the cavalry. They took his trail.” Pilar grinned at him. She still held his hand. Now she dropped it. “They’ll never see him,” she said. “Now for Sordo. Can we do anything?” “Nothing.” “_Pobre_, pink ghd ” she said. “I was fond of Sordo. Thou art sure, _sure_ that he is _jodido?_” “Yes. I have seen much cavalry.” “More than were here?” “Another full troop on their way up there.” “Listen to it,” Pilar said. “_Pobre, pobre Sordo_.” They listened to the firing. “Primitivo wanted to go up there,” Robert Jordan said. “Art thou crazy?” Pilar said to the flat-faced man. “What kind of _locos_ are we producing here?” “I wish to aid them.” “_Que va_,” Pilar said. “Another romantic. Dost thou not believe thou wilt die quick enough here without useless ghd iv voyages?”
