But Jose had no idea that there were people in townwho were sensitive to people with special powers!
These people were convinced that Jose was from theDevil. And they were determined to do whateverthey could to send Jose packing.
Jose saw it coming! One day, as he walked out of school, a group of people was in frontprotesting Jose!
They had posters that said things like "When God separates the wheat from the chaff, Jose willburn!" and "We can tell the sheep from the goats, Jose is a goat!"
It made Jose's heart sad! He knew that they would succeed. The town would soon send himaway!
And no one would see him off, not even his parents! The fanatics would see to it that they werealso convinced that he was evil!
But Jose was not going to leave easily. He lifted his arms, concentrated, and sent all of theposters up in smoke! Everyone gasped!
"Sell out!" "Devil boy!" "Spawn from Hell!" People started yelling.
And then they sent in the police to apprehend Jose. Seeing that he could not win, Jose gave upand accepted his fate!
He would not even seek out a lawyer to try to defend this travesty of justice! Let the peoplesend him out! He thought.
Let them separate themselves from the help he could give! He didn't care anymore! He justcared about his parents!
And they suffered. Once he was gone they tried to sell off some of his belongings.
But even the Salvation Army sent back their donations when they were told that they were theformer belongings of the Devil boy! And Jose just disappeared!
