Once more, the family is united. María is happy that Miss Maestas praises Antonio and that, once  more, she can cook for the "lost sons" even though Gabriel talks continually of his dream to move the  family to California. Winter comes soon, and happiness fades in the Márez household. Antonio's  brothers sleep during the day and, at night, drink, play billiards, and spend many hours at Rosie's  whorehouse, incurring many debts. One of the brothers, León, has terrifying nightmares, and Ultima  tends to him. Moody and restless, the brothers soon realize that they weren't meant to put down  roots in this village. Their father's dream is unrealistic, while their mother's dream seems very  realistic: Tony will become a priest, or a farmer, like the Lunas. They jostle and toss little Tony and  teasingly ask him for his blessing before they strike out to seek their destinies elsewhere. Tony
