This is when Dusty meets Paul. Paul and Dusty will later date, but this is one out of many important scenes in the book. It is important because when you read this part you can tell that Paul is very suspicious and mysterious. There was a lot of foreshadowing in this scene.
In Eli's dream, Dusty and Eli saw a Minotaur's head being ripped off by a black Phoenix. This shows a lot of foreshadowing because something bad will happen to one of the characters.
This is hen Mr. Ankil is found burnt to a crisp by Dusty and Eli. Paul left to go get something to drink, so that is when Dusty went to the bathroom and followed her mom. When Dusty and Eli found Mr. Ankil, Paul mysteriously showed up right after Mr. Ankil was found. Suddenly Dusty remembered the dream of the minotaur and it's head being ripped off. She realized that the minotaur was Mr. Ankil and she could've stopped the killer. There is too much irony for Paul not be suspicious.
