Jorge proceeds to beat up Fidelito, but Matt and Chacho tackle down Jorge before he gets the chance. The other boys chant on Chacho as he beats up the keeper. Then in the next moment tons of keepers come with guns to stop the boys.
The boys try to tell the other keepers about what Jorge has done but then he reveals to the other boys and the keepers the secret of the tattoo on Matt's foot. He tells them about how the tattoo ties him to the alarans in opium, and how he must have been a property of the old vampire.
Matt and Chacho are thrown into to the boneyard, a vast desert full of whales bones, by the keepers in a effort to punish them. It begins to rain, and the bats there scare chacho. They struggle with dehydration.
