Kino and Juana are the ones who are truly happy with the pearl. It is true that the news of the pearl has spread throughout the town. It is also true that everyone in the town including Juan Tomas, one of Kino's friends, is interested in the pearl and want to share in his moment of glory even if the pearl does not belong to any one of them. The pearl buyers are happy only because they hope that they can cheat Kino and Juana and they do their best to give him low offers which are still more money than Kino and Juana have. In the end, no one is truly happy except that Kino does stand up to the pearl buyers and says he will go to the capital to sell the pearl.
