Que desalinho que vai nesta casa! Esqueci-me de vos vir levantar e entretiveram-se a jogar o soco com as almofadas. Olhem para isto! Isto era um quadro encaixilhado, representando uma fonte com dois pombos a beber na bica cristalina, que pendia da parede, de cabeça para baixo. Os pequenos, encostados um ao outro, com as mãos comprometidamente escondidas atrás das costas, olhavam de revés para o gesticular de Benedita, que diligenciava repor o quadro no seu lugar justo e equilibrado. A rapariga, com o lábio inferior tremente do choro prestes a rebentar, encostava-se ao irmão, que franzia as sobrancelhas finas e castanhas.

A rapariga, com o lábio inferior tremente do choro prestes a rebentar, encostava-se ao irmão, que franzia as sobrancelhas finas e castanhas. Benedita voltou-se para ele e disse, tentando manter o tom zangado da voz: - Que a menina, que é tão pequenina, goste de brincar, vá, mas que o menino Dionísio, um homenzinho, faça este arraial, é que não é bonito. O que diria a mãezinha se os visse assim? Enquanto falava, ia pensando que a patroa não se zangaria tanto quanto ela dizia, se visse a brincadeira dos filhos.

O dia afundava-se por detrás da linha das serras do poente, que se erguiam como a guarda dum poço imenso. Maria Leonor subira ao quarto a fim de preparar-se para a consoada. Não acendeu a luz. A última claridade diurna entrava ainda numa penumbra fugidia, que ia desaparecendo aos poucos. Depois de se vestir, abriu a janela e encostou-se ao parapeito. De baixo vinha o rumor alegre da criadagem na cozinha. Ouvia os pratos tilintarem, o bater compassado das facas nos tabuleiros cortando as largas fatias de carne de porco, que iam para o lume em frigideiras imensas.
