Then events start to occur which makes her believe that Xolotl is telling the truth.

She may never see him again since Alphaeus is leaving town to be closer to his family after he loses his job at a Burger King restaurant. Now Dionysia has to deal with the fact that robots have taken her job too. An opportunity to get revenge arrives while she takes it in order to feel better about her situation.
