All of the soldiers sat together in groups at the tables of a restaurant in town.  They looked dirty and completely disheveled.  They were drinking champagne to celebrate, although Demetrio would prefer something stronger like tequila.  During this scene the men go back and forth about who they killed, why they were so easy to kill and named the ranks of the ones they killed.  Most told embellished stories with many details to make the story seem realistic. 

As the men boasted of their killings, women made their way through the thick of men.  They were all dressed with large Mexican hats with revolvers at their hips and cartridge belts slung across their chests.  One woman in particular made her way over to Demetrio and leaped on the bar next to him..

Anastasio and three of Demetrio's other men made their way into the restaurant, too.  Anastasio recognized an old friend Blondie, who was one of the men boasting earlier about his kills.  He introduced the Blondie to Demetrio.  Meanwhile, the woman sitting on the bar was given the nickname "War Paint."  She continued to pursue Demetrio with her small talk and her stares. The men around them continued their talk of kills. 

Not too long before daybreak, the men continue to celebrate in the streets as they head away from the restaurant.  Some even shot off their pistols.  Demetrio headed to a hotel with War Paint.
