Kino and Juana heard the slightest noise and froze. On the support rope of Coyotito's baby box, there was a scorpion. Coyotito laughed and they scorpion fell and stung him before Kino was able to catch him.
Kino dove into the water hoping to find the Pearl of the World. As he went down, he saw one pearl by itself and he went to go get it. It wouldn't budge, but he finally able to get it.
After the doctor started to help Coyotito, Kino started to think of all the things he could do with the pearl money. He wanted to get married, get a rifle, send Coyotito to school and new clothes. The problem was that everybody wanted the pearl and someone was gonna get it.
