Antonio considers the possibility that his mother has been praying to the wrong god; perhaps she  should pray to the golden carp. He asks Samuel where he can see the golden carp and is told that  Cico will show him the fabulous carp. From that moment on, Antonio is obsessed with the concept of  the holy, golden carp. That summer, Antonio hears rumors that his Uncle Lucas is bewitched; he has been ill all winter and  now it is summer, and he is still very ill, apparently because he watched some witches (the three  Trementina sisters) dancing and performing "black rites." Ultima agrees to treat him but warns  Gabriel and Mar í a that they will be held responsible for perhaps unleashing an uncontrollable chain  of events if she tampers with Lucas' fate. She says that Antonio will be her assistant, and Uncle  Pedro stresses Antonio's strong Luna blood.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
