Storyboard Text

  • I entered Ultima's room softly. Only a candle burned in the room, and by its light I saw Ultima lying on the bed. I placed the owl by her side and knelt at the side of the bed.  (Anaya 260)
  • "You cannot die," I cried.  "My work was to good", she continued, "I was to heal the sick and show them the path of goodness. (Anaya 260)
  • "Ultima-"I wanted to cry out, don't die, Ultima. I wanted to rip death away from her and the owl. "Shhh," she whispered, and her touch calmed me. "Now, take the owl, go west into the hills until you find a forked juniper tree, there bury the owl. Her last words were "I bless you in the name of all good and strong and beautiful, Antonio." (Anaya 260)
  • WhenI found a forked juniper tree I dropped to my knees and with my hands I carved out a whole big enough to hold the owl. I placed the owl in the grave and I put a large stone over it so the coyotes would not dig it out, then covered the hole with the earth of the llano. When I stood up I felt warm tears on my cheeks. (Anaya 261)
  • I heard the sound of a siren somewhere near the bridge and I knew my father and my uncle were returning with the sheriff. The dead Tenorio who had meddled with the fate of Narciso and Ultima would be carted away from our hills. Ultima said to take life's experiences and build strength from them not weakness. (Anaya 261)
  • Tomorrow the women who came to mourn Ultima's death would help my mother dress her in black, and my father would make her a fine pine coffin. In two days we would celebrate the mass of the dead, and after mass we would take her body to the cemetary in Las Pasturas for burial. Ultima was really buried here. Tonight. (Anaya 262)
