Kino had just finished eating breakfast when he and Juana had seen movement near Coyotito's hanging box. It was a scorpion hanging on the rope of the box. Kino slowly walked over to the box to remove the scorpion, but Coyotito had moved the rope and the scorpion fell and stung the little baby.
Juana and Kino went out pearl hunting. Kino caught a glimpse of something shiny in a oyster. Kino brought it up to the surface and sure enough when he opened it there was an enormous pearl inside.
Kino hid the Pearl in the corner of his hut and he woke up to the noise of some one digging in the corner. So Kino got up grabbed a knife and stabbed the intruder. The intruder then ran away.
