The Special Something

Chapter 11

Just as Raoul is accusing the children of holding out for more money, the voice of Ma Yatta, standing behind them,  like a lovely statue with her market basket balanced on her head, interrupts him.  Yatta explains to Raoul's father that to his son, Beauty is just another monkey; to her children, however, she is something much much more:

     "We are only poor farmers..." Ma Yatta continued, "...and are impressed by your wealth..." she waved her hand at the store, then pointed to the wad of money in Raoul's hand, "...but though we have little, there are some things that are not for sale at any price..." she looked at him very carefully and spoke very slowly, " children's Beauty is one of those things."
