One day, Constantina Tirol, also called as Tinang, visits her former master, Señora,whom she was working for before she got married. While carrying her baby boy, she walksthrough the entrance of the house of her former Señora and meet his former young master,Tito,and the Señora. Upon getting inside the house, Señora asks her some questions how her marriedlife is together with his Bagobo husband and also how is it to be a mother of a baby boy. Theirconversation continues and they reach to the point of talking about the tractor drivers of Señora,especially the one who was good, Amado.After that, Tinang finally tells her former Señora about her intention of being there. Thebaptism of her baby is about to come and she wants Señora to be a Madrina or a Ninang to herchild. The relationship between Tinang and her former Señora with her family remains good.And so, Señora hastily agreed to be so and yet wants to provide baptismal clothes for the babyand the fee for the Priest. Before she left from Señora
‟s house, she was told by her that there is a
letter for her in the drugstore, which also serves as the post office of the barrio. By that moment,she thought that someone might be dead or maybe that letter comes from her sister. So shehurriedly takes her way home and passes by that drugstore to get the letter.As she continues walking in a muddy road to her way home, she tries to look for a placewhere she could lay down her baby, hoping that she could read the letter before she arriveshome. Finally, she finds a good place where she can stop for a while. There is a Kamansi treeand under of it are scattered cornhusks. So, she prepares a heap of it using her foot and laid herbaby upon it. Then, she starts reading the letter. After doing so, she finds out that the letter is alove letter, her first love letter, which comes from Amado, her boyfriend, saying that he does not
 
want to break up with her when he left from the field of Señora without telling the reason why hedid so.Time cannot be back anymore. It is already too late that she discovers that Amado stillloves her. However, she w
as not informed that his mother‟s worst
illness made him gone forsome time. Instead, Tinang marry a Bagobo man, whom owns 2 hectares of land. After all, whatshe does is only to remember her past with Amado until the time comes when she has to leaveupon noticing that a snake is sneaking towards her baby boy.
