In this small section, the relationship of the old man and Manolin reverses twice. In the first instance, Manolin discovers Santiago lying face down on his bed, and the sight of the old man's hands makes him cry. Manolin then goes on to take care of the old man like a father would care for his child.

For the second part of the question, the old man resumes his place as Manolin's teacher and role model. Unwilling to leave his mentor again, Manolin pledges himself to Santiago and goes against his father's wishes. They have a relationship built on complete loyalty, trust and love.
