Transcript of BREAD OF SALT
When Aida caught him packing some of the food in the party.
BREAD OF SALT
BY NVM GONZALES
When the fourteen year-old throw away the food that he packed.
The boy realized that like a pan de sal he is still not yet ready to face reality.
When the fourteen year old boy started to learn and master playing violin.
When his aunt doesn't support him to perform in public or parties because the musicians are the last to eat during parties.
Fourteen year-old boy
Don Esteban's House
The story is all about a teenage boy who buys pan de sal or ‘bread of salt’ because of its wonderful flavor. Every day, he walks by the house of the old Spaniard’s niece, Aida, whom the boy liked.
He would follow her everyday to school. He would also think about how he would confess his feelings for her during classes. He joins Pete Saez’s private band, Minviluz Orchestra. One of the reasons he joined was to save money to buy a brooch for Aida. Also, it was his dream to be a violinist, though his aunt did not want him to pursue his passion.
One night, when the band was performing, the boy did something embarrassing that Aida saw. Embarrassed, he walked out in shame. He was probably thinking that because of what he had done, there is no chance for Aida to like him back. Pete led him home and passed by baker’s on the way. They ordered pan de sal, but the bread was still not ready.
