Cico says it is human nature for people to want to hurt each other and be cruel to each other. Tony and Cico had been eating carrots out of Narciso's garden and talking about why people treat each other the way they do. When Tony's friends accuse him of living with a bruja, he gets so upset he throws up the carrots. When the other boys see the orange vomit, they think he's done something magical.
