How My Brother Leon Brought Home A Wife
Transcript of How My Brother Leon Brought Home A Wife
by: Manuel E. Arguilla
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Maria was the lovely and beautiful wife of Leon from the city. She was fragrant like a morning when papayas are in bloom. Leon brought Maria to Nagrebcan to introduce her to his father. Baldo is quiet and observes his older brother's spouse while on their way riding a cart that is hitched to Labang, the bull. While on their way home, Baldo sent Labang down the deep cut that would take them to the dry bed of the Waig as a substitute of passing the Camino Real as what Baldo was told by their father. Maria told Leon that she was afraid that her father-in-law might not like her. Leon explained to Maria that their father is the mildest-tempered, gentlest man he knew. When they got home, their father did not welcome them. He was said to be in his room because his leg is bothering him again. Baldo was asked by his father if Maria is afraid of Labang and he told him how the trip on their way home went. Afterwards, the door opened and Leon and Maria came in. Baldo looked at Maria once more and went out to water Labang as what his father had told him.
