He walked behind Caridad toward the car, from which Luis emerged with Churro in his arms. ” Luis obeyed her and again hugged his brother. “We’ll see each other soon in Barcelona. I’ll take you to sign up for the Youth Brigades. ” Luis smiled. “And will you sign me up for the army? ” Ramón smiled and hugged him tight.

Although Pau, Ramón’s father, was several years older than Caridad, in the boy’s eyes they ­were an enviable couple who shared a passion for ­horses, like good aristocrats, and just to see them take their h ­ orses out to trot, one knew they ­were excellent riders, she the more talented one.
