“Nacha knew what the senora was saying was true…”
How does the interaction between Nacha and Laura create a dynamic with is realistic yet still magical?
Nacha and Laura throughout the story interact with one another through dialogue as well as body language because Nacha chooses to respond to what Laura says by, at times, crossing her arms or agreeing with what Laura speaks of. In the passage above, Nacha believes what Laura says is true, even though it is not certain whether or not Laura is even living, but the physical presence and words of Laura allow Nacha to believe what she hears and sees, which is a magical aspect. Nacha chooses to believe and trust in something which might not have existed in the ‘real world’, however, the conversations the women had and the choice of believing the conversation empowered the story to have realistic aspects as well.
