Esperanza isn't too impressed with the fortune teller. She seems like other women in the neighbourhood except with more money. Esperanza doesn't really see anything in the glass of water. She really wants to know if there is a house in her future but Elenita mutters some vague image about a hose of hearts. Esperanza is pretty disappointed in the whole experience.
