Miguel joins her and they sit together, admiring the rose bushes Papa planted for each of them years before. Miguel tells Esperanza that his family is planning to move to the United States as soon as they are no longer needed by Esperanza’s family. Esperanza shifts away in surprise and Miguel repeats Esperanza’s past words to her: in Mexico, they come from different worlds. Back in her own room, Esperanza promises to never leave the farm. While thinking about Papa, Esperanza smells the pungent odor of the ripening papayas that Señor Rodríguez delivered. She wishes that things could go back to the way they were and tries to find Papa in her dreams again.
