“My real name is Hector.” “Hector,” Stanley repeated. “Hector Zeroni.” Madame Zeroni was the old gypsy that put a curse on Stanley's family, and now her great great great grandson has found Elya's great great grandson, making this evidence for the theme "Everything happens for a Reason".
"The Shoe Thief" Ch.39
I took the Shoes...
"Stanley took hold of Zero’s forearms and pulled him upright. Then he stooped down and let Zero fall over his right shoulder. He stood up, lifting Zero’s worn-out body off the ground. He left the shovel and sack of jars behind as he continued up the mountain. Zero’s legs dangled in front of him." He fufilled the destiny Madame Zeroni wanted Elya to fufill, by carrying a Zeroni up the mountain. "Everything happens for a reason."
"The Chest" Ch.47
"He pulled it out. It was a gold tube, about as long and as wide as the second finger on his right hand. The tube was open at one end and closed at the other. - He looked again at the design engraved into the flat bottom of the tube. He could see an outline of a heart, with the letters K B etched inside it." He found Kate Barlow's lipstick tube, the one that robbed his great grandfather. "Everything happens for a reason."
"Zero closed his eyes. But then again he said, “I didn’t know about the shoes.” “What shoes?" “From the shelter.” It took a moment for Stanley to comprehend. “Clyde Livingston’s shoes?” “I’m sorry,” said Zero." Zero took the shoes that Stanley was accused of stealing. Those odds are super unlikely! "Everything happens for a reason."
"Stanley looked, too. There, in big black letters, was STANLEY YELNATS." Stanley found his great grandfathers money at Camp Green Lake. "Everything happens for a Reason"
“Sploosh,” said a voice. “A treat for your feet. Made from all natural ingredients, it neutralizes odor-causing fungi and bacteria. Plus, you’ll like the tingle.” The sploosh was peaches, and the sploosh that Stanley's father made smelled like peaches, plus it was named after Zero's original sploosh. "Everything happens for a reason."
