Chapter 6 How do Enrique and Lourdes adjust to their new lives together?
Answers 1Add Yours
They live together in a trailer shared with several other people. At first, they eat and watch television together. Enrique gets to know Diana, his nine year old half-sister, and buys her gifts with money he earns as a painter and sander. Soon enough, though, he and Lourdes begin to clash. She wants him to study English; he wants to do as he pleases. One day, Lourdes’s roommates reject a collect call from Marìa Isabel. Enrique is enraged, and packs to leave. Lourdes spanks him. Enrique locks himself in the bathroom, and later spends the night in a cemetery. They soon reconcile, but the difficulties persist. They have been away from one another for too long.
