Marcelo in the Real World Chapter 21 Summary
The next day, as he's on the way to the mailroom, Marcelo runs into Arturo, whom he's been avoiding.
Arturo invites him to have lunch, but Marcelo blows him off for Jasmine. Arturo senses Marcelo's mad, but has no idea why.
Jasmine's found the 36th box. She tells Marcelo that if what's in the box is made public, Vidromek will probably lose the case. Yep, we're playing with live ammo now.
Here's the thing: if Vidromek loses the case, Arturo will no longer have the money to send Marcelo to Paterson.
Marcelo feels confused and realizes feeling confused is uncomfortable. We'll say. Still, he decides to look in the box.
There it is: a letter from Vidromek quality control to the president of the company, telling him the windshields are defective.
Over lunch, Marcelo tells Jasmine that if anyone asks him where he got the file, he'll have to lie so she won't lose her job.
Jasmine, seeing that Marcelo's a bit of an emotional wreck, invites him to come to her family home in Vermont for the weekend.
The plot thickens.
