Ahead of him, he sees the lights of town, the familiar juniper-spotted hills, and the lights within his  home. Pedro's truck pulls up to the house just as Antonio notices that Tenorio is near the juniper  tree. Antonio cries out, and Ultima calls to her owl, which swirls above Tenorio. A shot is fired, and  Tenorio picks up the body of the dead owl, dancing and howling that he has won. Another shot rings  out, and Tenorio jerks his head and clutches his stomach; over by the trucks, Uncle Pedro is holding  a pistol. Antonio wraps the owl in a blanket and rushes to Ultima, who is lying in bed. Ultima tells him that her  owl is not dead; it is simply flying to a new place, just like she herself is getting ready to do. The owl  was given to her by an old man to be her spiritual bond to the harmony of the universe. She was to  do good by healing the sick and showing people the path to goodness. Harmony will return with the
