"I have it," said Kino. "And I will keep it. I might have given it as a gift, but now it is my misfortune and my life and I will keep it."

What Kino had believed would change his life (the pearl) had in fact changed it. The pearl had destroyed life as he knew it; it wasn't a gift..... it was misfortune.
