They will have horses at the inn.

And if they don't have any?

If they don't have any, we will

wait for ours to rest, then we

will head for the mountains at

noon or whenever they are rested.

That is... if we manage to do it.

I'm leaving. I will find

El Lero and join him.

You won't go anywhere, Jimnez.

And be very careful with what you do!

It may sound strange, but it is

the first time I come this way.

We've noticed. I mean no

offence, but in the Royal

Court they have no clue of

what's going on in this area.

It seems the Liberals have

rebelled. They don't like

the King, and the King

does not like them, either.

And is your Mistress

involved in those politics?

This roast makes one

forget all the worries.

My Mistress is not

involved in those politics.

She is loyal to the King.

She is traveling to visit

her estate. She inherited

it many years ago, but she

has never been here before.

Her land is about one day from here.

That's great, not even

knowing what you own.

You have been lucky, for the last

execution has cleaned the roads.

Until a few weeks ago,

no carriage would pass...

without being robbed

and someone being killed.

They caught seven, and all seven

were garroted. That's what happened.

C'mon, I knew one of

them when he was a kid.

His father was Villarasa's verger,

and the boy was a great kid.

He was so good, he almost

became a priest. Take my word.

Gentlemen, don't you eat the whole

roast. Leave something for the Authority.

It was quite a colorful event.

It was well arranged and very exciting.

Obviously, you haven't been in Madrid.

Your Mistress is very beautiful, very

white. I never saw a woman like her before.

In Madrid, if you have money,

they will make you beautiful.

And she is white because she

is not exposed to the sun.
