"On second thought, perhaps it wouldn't be correct." She tore a piece of rind from it with her teeth, spat it out with an emphasis that spat him out with it, and then flatly, as though the whole incident were closed, said, "After all, I don't know who you are." Don Jose bowed a little, awkwardly shy, and hastened to make up for this breach of etiquette. "I am Don Jose, just arrived in Seville, senorita." \ She laughed with hearty amusement. "Senorita! Me?" She threw her head back and laughed with a strident shout. Then she looked at him, her eyes brimming with amusement. "You have just arrived in Seville. Where did you come frqm?" "From Navarre." As though this explained everything, she said, "(5ho! A Navarre." She leaned over as though imparting a mocking secret.
