Estaba ya en la subida de la Morera, cuando sonó un disparo y el valentón sintió el golpe en la espalda, al mismo tiempo que se nublaba su vista y le zumbaban los oídos.
¡Cristo! Eran ellos que acababan de herirle. Y llevándose la mano al cinto tiró de su pistola del quince; pero antes que volviera la cara sonó otro disparo y Pepet cayó redondo.

Corría la gente, cerrábanse las puertas con estrépito, sonaban pitos y más pitos al extremo de la calle, sin que por esto se viese un quepis por parte alguna, y aprovechándose del pánico abandonaron los Bandullos la protectora esquina, avanzando cuchillo en mano hacia el inerte cuerpo, al que removieron de una patada como si fuese un talego de ropa. Ben mort está.* Y para convencerse más, se inclinó uno de ellos sobre la cabeza del muerto, guardándose algo en el bolsillo.
