  Marco, the owner of the cow, appeared an hour later and began a heated discussion with Jevy and Milton about the value of the cow.

  "I'll pay for the creature," Nate said to Jevy.

  Jevy asked the man how much, then said, "A hundred dollars."

  "Does he take American Express?" Nate asked, but the humor missed its mark. "I'll pay it." He'd pay as much as that to stop Marco complaining.

  The deal was settled and the man became their host. When he realized Nate was from the States, he sent for his wife and kids. They ate rice and black beans around a small table. The children sat on the floor beside the table, eating bread and rice, watching every move Nate made.

  Marco had a small boat with a motor. TheParaguay Riverwas five hours away. Maybe he had enough gasoline, maybe he didn't. But it would be impossible to get there with all three men in the boat.

  奶牛的主人马尔科一个小时后现身,情绪激动地跟杰维和米尔顿理论这头牛的价值。

  “我会赔偿的,”尼特对杰维说。

  杰维问了那个人价格之后告诉尼特:“一百刀。”

  “他收不收美国运通卡?”尼特问,但是幽默被他讲成了冷笑话,“我会付钱的。”他照价付款买个清静。

  成交之后那个人成了招待他们的主人,当他知道了尼特是从美国来的之后就叫来了自己的老婆孩子,他们围坐在一张小桌子旁吃米饭和黑豆。孩子们坐在桌旁的地板上,吃着面包和米饭,观察着尼特的每一个动作。

  马尔科有一艘带马达的小船,这里距离巴拉圭河有五小时的路程,先不说有没有足够的汽油,光是让这艘船承载下这三个大男人就是不可能的。
