Texto  español  English text
 

Era una lástima que la fiesta terminase mal; pero entre hombres, ya se sabe, hay que estar a todo. Dejar sitio y que se las arreglen los hombres como puedan. Los amigos de Pepet, que estaban en sus glorias y se mostraban fieros por la superioridad del número, colocáronse ante los Bandullos mayores, cortándoles el paso con los cuchillos y sus palabras. En ocasiones como aquélla había que demostrar la entraña de valiente. Nada importaba que fuese su hermano. Había insultado y debía probar sin ayuda ajena que tenía tanto de aquello como de lengua.

It had insulted and to try without foreign help that it had so much of that one as of language.
