3. Actions

3.1. Raphael's unlucky-lucky day

3.1.1. Raphael found a bag of trash that was not opened. the trash bags that are not opened mean that they are the good ones -- when Raphael opened the bag, it had purse and inside the purse there was a fat wallet, an ID card, and a key. In the wallet there was 11 thousand pesos so he shared it with Gardo (Raphael took 600, and Gardo took 500).

3.2. The police came to find the purse that Raphael and Gardo had found, but Raphael and Gardo did not give it to the police because they thought that the police would not give the price that they said they will.

3.3. Raphael, Gardo, and Rat went to the station to open the locker and see what's inside. They took the train and went to the station. At first when they got there, they met some trash boys. Rat knew who they were so he talked to them as he walked. They were very scared and nervous that they always looked around if the police was there but fortunately, there were no police around. They could easily take the envelope and got out of the station. They hid behind the bushes and checked what it was inside. It was something related with prisoners.

3.4. Raphael was arrested to the police station, when the police men had came. Raphael was very scared, and he kept crying. He was forced to get into the car, and when they arrived to the police station, Raphael was questioned by the people. The police kept asking if he had found the purse but Raphael kept lying to them that he did not find it.

3.5. Gardo lied to Olivia that he had to go to the prison to meet his grandfather.

3.6. Raphael and Rat went to Zapanta's house, which was gigantic, and heard about Jose Angelico by a gardener who worked for a long time in that house.

3.7. Jose Angelico's story

3.7.1. Jose Angelico was adopted by Dante Jerome, Gabriel Olondirz's son. (Many other kids were adopted with him, too). Dante Jerome and Gabriel Olondirz liked him more than the other kids, because he was very smart, so they thought that he would get lots of money from him when he grows up. But Jose Angelico did not become a lawyer or something like that, that would bring Dante and Gabriel a load of money -- he became a houseboy who worked in Zapanta's house. One day, for some reason, he stole thousands of money from Zapanta by putting them in a fridge. He told Zapanta to change the fridge into a new one, and said that he would give the old one to the guy who delivered the new fridge. He got on the truck with the fridge (who is containing money), out of the gates. After this he got arrested and killed during a conference(?) with the police.

3.8. Gardo, Raphael, and Rat escaped from the dumpsite after they heard the police car coming. They were sure that the police was searching for them, so they got their money, and ran away.

3.8.1. They went to the prison that Gardo went before to meet Gabriel Olondriz. They were scared to be caught, but they waited there sitting, searching for the guard from there, thinking that he could help them find the bible that Gabriel said he had before he died (this will be a great clue to find where the fridge that Jose hided it). But when they finally met each other, the guard asked for 20 thousand pesos.

3.8.1.1. To get those 20 thousand pesos, Rat went to the Mission school, by riding a garbage truck going to the dumpsite. He sneaked inside the school through the window, and opened the secret cabinet that contained a bit more than 20 thousand pesos. Because Rat felt bad for stealing Father Julliard's money, he wrote -- or drew -- a note that showed some clues that it was Rat himself, the one who did it.

3.8.1.1.1. After they got the money, Gardo went to meet the guard at a restaurant, and he had a hook in his pocket, just in case the guard calls the police, then he can attack the people and run away with the bible. He, Raphael, and Rat also planned a route to toss the bible to each other and run away separately, then meet again at one place. When Gardo went to the restaurant, both him and the guard checked what each other have got, and traded them. But as the kids had predicted, the guard called the cops who were waiting in another tables from that restaurant. The guard grabbed his arm tight, but he could run away by hitting the guard's face (he was not so sure about where exactly on the face) and ran away. As soon as he got out of the restaurant, he threw the bible to Rat, and all three of them, including Raphael, ran away form the police.

3.9. After they got the bible, they took hard time to see what the code meant, and when they finally found it out, they realized that the code was telling them to go to the graves. On the day of dead (a big celebration in Mexico), they went to the graves and searched for Jose Angelico's wife's grave. They also took hard time in here, to find the right coffin, but then realized that they were searching in the part that rich people are buried -- on Earth. The other side of the grave was for the poor people, who are not even buried, but just inside a concrete box.

3.9.1. When they found the stack of 3 boxes (obviously, it was from Jose Angelico's family), they saw that the bottom one was his wife's, the middle one was his son's, and the top one was his daughter's. They were about to give up on opening the concrete box with money, feeling very guilty of trying to steal it from a poor person that had lost everything including his own family. But then, they heard a voice asking them if they are searching for anything. They answered no, and asked the question, "What's your name?", and her answer was "Pia Dante". She was Jose Angelico's daughter.

3.9.1.1. Now that they know that the daughter of Jose Angelico is alive, they were sure that the top coffin that has the name 'Pia Dante' written is the one with money. They brought materials to break open the concrete box and some bags to put the money in. They asked Pia Dante to wait, and they got the money as soon as possible. They put all of them inside the bag and went out of the grave with two sacks full of money, and a girl.

3.10. That same night they found the money, they went to the dumpsite, to where they lived before. They climbed up the big mountains of garbage and started throwing money to the air. When Gardo and Raphael was doing all these throwings, Rat went to the mission school and placed the money on Father Julliard's desk.

3.11. After all this. they sneaked back out of the dumpsite, and went to a beach. As Rat has always wished, they bought a boat and fished happily for their rest of the life, with Pia Dante.
