Junior and his family move from Los Rafas, the country, to town, the city. Even though junior's uncle is not happy with their choice of moving to town, they move anyways.
They move onto fruit avenue, which was not far from Immaculate Heart Parochial School where junior will begin first grade.
On his first day of school, junior joins a group of boys that are in 3rd grade called Los Indios. The group was a good group meaning they never did any gang- related things like the Anglo kids.
Mama came outside as well and started talking to the other boy's mother. junior then fins out that he is forced to bring Denver the kid he beat up with him to the rat house and hang out with Los Indios. Even though junior didn't want to take him he had no choice.
Junior knew he had a big problem in his hands and didn't know what he would say to Chango and the rest of Los Indios. the whole time, junior and Denver walked in silence and junior knew Denver was really nervous and scared.
When they both arrived at the Rat House, Chango was not happy to see Denver and immediately ask junior what he was doing walking with him. Junior told them a lie and made them believe that Denver was just an Indian from Oklahoma. Chango was a little skeptical about it but ended up accepting Denver in Los indios.
