The Spanish Student - ACT II - SCENE VII

ACT II: SCENE VII

SCENE: A lane in the suburbs. Night. Enter CRUZADO and
BARTOLOME.

CRUZADO. And so, Bartolome, the expedition failed. But where
wast thou for the most part?

BARTOLOME. In the Guadarrama mountains, near San Ildefonso.

CRUZADO. And thou bringest nothing back with thee? Didst thou
rob no one?

BARTOLOME. There was no one to rob, save a party of students from
Segovia, who looked as if they would rob us; and a jolly little
friar, who had nothing in his pockets but a missal and a loaf of
bread.

CRUZADO. Pray, then, what brings thee back to Madrid?

BARTOLOME. First tell me what keeps thee here?

CRUZADO. PRECIOSAiosa.

BARTOLOME. And she brings me back. Hast thou forgotten thy
promise?

CRUZADO. The two years are not passed yet. Wait patiently. The
girl shall be thine.

BARTOLOME. I hear she has a Busne lover.

CRUZADO. That is nothing.

BARTOLOME. I do not like it. I hate him,--the son of a Busne
harlot. He goes in and out, and speaks with her alone, and I
must stand aside, and wait his pleasure.

CRUZADO. Be patient, I say. Thou shalt have thy revenge. When
the time comes, thou shalt waylay him.

BARTOLOME. Meanwhile, show me her house.

CRUZADO. Come this way. But thou wilt not find her. She dances
at the play to-night.

BARTOLOME. No matter. Show me the house.


(Exeunt.)

Why do I walk abroadBy daylight, when the very sunshine mocks me,And voices, and familiar sights and soundsCry, "Hide thyself!" O what a thin partitionDoth shut out from the curious world the knowledgeOf evil deeds that have been done in darkness!Disgrace has many tongues. My fears are windows,Through which all eyes seem gazing. Every faceExpresses some suspicion of my shame,And in derision seems to smile at me! HYPOLITO. Did I not caution
