________________
_______
AHA---Matt finds out what El Patrón was keeping him for...His heart.(It's ironic since Rl Patrón has no "heart", he is for loss of better term; evil
AHA---Matt finds out what El Patróns ultimate purpose was for him,to take his heart for himself
(which is ironic, since El Patrón, for a loss of better words is evil)

help of his friends. (No one helps him... very seldom.)

of the little house,before he
knows he is a clone.
He believes he
is strong,
normal.
AHA---Matts a clone!!!
A+A---Matts treate like an animal. In Rosa's cruel and inhumane prison for Matt he is forced to act like one
AHA-C+C---Celia admited to poisonning Matt, so he was no use to El Patron. Also, she stood up to him, very brave and motherly.
C+C---Maria loves Matt, more than a pet and friend. Usually she is only capable of treating him and pittying him like her animal.
AHA---All the Alacrán's are dead...
C+C---The keepers punish others for Matt being a clone. Treat him equal when it comes to his punishments.
C+C-TQ--- Matt forces maria to kiss him, he acted like El Patrón than himself. When he was young, he made a choice, like a tree does when it decides to grow one way or the other. He grew large and green until he shadowed over the whole forest, but most of his branches are twisted." Will Matt turn out to be twisted?
MM--- Matt remembers the poppy field.White seems inviting but Opium is anything but terrible. The white flowers represent what immagrents and foreigners see from afar, but just like a real flower you dont feel the sting until you step on the bee in that flower.
AHA---Tam Lin tells Matt the dead eejit they found in the field died of thirst.
AHA---Tam Lin tells Matt the eejit horse will not drink unless instructed to do so.
I thimk the water, or lack of water represents how helpless and powerless the people are.
