Soon enough, the entire town had heard the news that Kino had found the Pearl of the World. It spread to kinos neighbors, the priest, and even the doctor who were all talking about it. Everyone was becoming very jealous of kino and his new wealth.
The Pearl of the World!
The doctor comes over to Kino's hut and has now agreed to examine Coyotito. He finds that the poison has spread and it will strike again soon, then gives him medicine in hopes to help it. After the doctor leaves, Kino digs a hole and buries the pearl.
Give me the pearl!
In the middle of the night, Kino and Juana hear something strange outside of their hut. Kino decides to go outside with his knife and find out what was there. Juana finds Kino with a large cut on his forehead and insists the pearl is evil, however Kino says this is nonsense.
