Demetrio and his men find a large home that had also belonged to the cacique of Moyahua.  They choose to stay there.  It had been deserted and showed signs of struggle from those who left.  Luis entered the drawing room as he went to turn in for the night.  Demetrio was there alone, lying on the floor.  Luis showed him the large sack of gold coins and attempted to turn them over to him along with a box full of jewelry and jewels.

Demetrio does not want such things.  He is not as much interested in the booty they collect.  He only desires to have his needs of plenty to drink and willing women within his grasp.  Luis explains that now would be a good time to leave.  The revolution will continue on for quite some time.  The money and jewels they have could easily support them if they were to live abroad.

Demetrio says no.  He needs to stay and continue in the fight.  If they were to leave, "it wouldn't show much guts." He even still longs for Camilla.  Luis promises him he would go get her.  Demetrio shows his satisfaction with offering to give Luis the watch and chain that he'd been longing for in payment.  With that, the two of them smile and Luis takes the box full of jewels and heads to bed for the night.
