The story starts as a flashback of the life of Jaafar as an orphan and a young servant of the Datu's daughter. He narrates the bittersweet memories he shared with Dayang-Dayang
As they get older and become teens, Jaafar always thinks about her and his emotions and feelings towards Dayang-Dayang grow stronger but he always reminds himself that he should be in love with her because he has no blue blood. Months later, a young Datu from Bonbon asked for Dayang-Dayang's hand in marriage, leaving Jaafar brokenhearted.
7 years later, when they lived their separate lives, the royal family encountered many problems. Muramuraan raised hand against Christian goverment and was sent to jail,his servants died fighting for the wrong cause, Appah and Amboh died and all their lands and possessions were confiscated
Jaafar went to Bonbon on business and saw Dayang with her children. He saw that she was working and stressed and saw that she was not used to the hard labor. Jaafar wants to go back to Dayang, help her and take care of her because he misses her and still loves her.
Even though Jaafar really wanted to go back to Dayang-Dayang, he stopped himself from running to her because he still has no blue blood and "Not even the fingers of Allah could weave our fabrics to equality."
Jaafar has feelings for Dayang-Dayang but even thought he likes her, he stops himself because he knows that they are not from the same class.
