The House on Mango Street Chapter 25 - Geraldo No Last Name

Esperanza recalls Marin's night out on the town when she met and danced with a man named Geraldo. She never got his last name or knew a thing about him. When he was killed that night, she visited the hospital and was questioned by the police; but unfortunately could give them no information. He was nothing to her except a boy she just met. However, he was something to other people. A boy from Mexico who spoke no English:

"They never saw the kitchenettes. They never knew about the two-room flats and sleeping rooms he rented, the weekly money orders sent home, the currency exchange. How could they? His name was Geraldo. And his home is in another country. The ones he left behind are far away, will wonder, shrug, remember. Geraldo - he went north...we never heard from him again." Chapter 25, pg. 66
