In Chapter Thirteen, Maria finds Bruno in the kitchen taking bread and cheese to bring to Shmuel. Bruno asks her about Pavel, who had told him that he wasn't really a waiter but was actually a doctor. Maria confirms that Pavel had been a doctor "in another life" (137). Maria agrees to tell Bruno what she knows about Pavel's life before he came to Out-With, but makes him promise not to speak of it to anyone else. The reader doesn't learn what she tells Bruno.
