I felt it was my duty to defend his character and I told them that in my judgment don Juan was then, as he had been in the past, a great sorcerer, perhaps even the greatest of all. I said I felt there was something about him, something truly extraordinary. I urged them to remember that he was over seventy years old and yet he was more energetic and stronger than all of us put together. I challenged the young men to prove it to themselves by trying to sneak up on don Juan. "You just can't sneak up on my grandpa," Lucio said proudly.
Lucio asked. "You could probably get one for a hundred dollars," I said. "That isn't very much there, is it? " Benigno asked. "Well, let me ask your grandpa first," I said to Lucio. "No, no," he protested. "Don't mention it to him. He'll spoil everything. He's a weirdo. " "He was a real sorcerer once," Benigno added. "I mean a real one. My folks say he was the best. But he took to peyote and became a nobody. " "And he goes over and over the same crappy stories about peyote," Lucio said. "That peyote is pure crap," Benigno said.

Two young men were in charge of keeping the fire burning all night, and one teenager and I kept the water that was going to be given to the seven participants after their all-night ritual.
