She verbally barrages him with abuse, calling him a “filthy bastard”, telling him she should have taken him to the orphanage and warns him to never do this again.

She would always go over to Abuelitas house and help her with different things such as, planting wild lilies or different types of spices like cilantro (Viramontes 1176). The part that got me to where I knew that the young girl cared for Abuelita as much as Abuelita cared for her was when, at the end when she already knew that Abuelita had died she still cared for her by giving her a wash and just taking the time to be by her side.
