I want to go back to the hotel, said Clyde.
The hacendado leaned against a wine cask in the dim cellar and regarded Clyde. You will be returned soon, he said. First there is the matter of the girl.
I didn’t do anything.
In your mind perhaps this is true. But you have broken a sacred law of this land. A very old law. And now you are here in this place. He gestured vaguely around the cellar. To be. How to say. Reviewed.
Look I’d like to call the embassy.
First I will review you. It is required.
Clyde struggled to reach his wallet but the hemp ropes held him fast. I can pay, he said.
The hacendado whistled through his teeth and shook his head. You Americans, he said. Always the judge. This hotel is very good. That country is very bad. But when it is time for you to be reviewed you are begging please no. Please I can pay money. I will review you now. The hacendado snapped his fingers and a vaquero entered carrying a branding iron in the shape of a star, the whitehot tip sputtering and sparking like some wroughtiron incubus.
