Group 1 Asia: Leon and Maria arrived at Nagrebcan at is currently waiting for Baldo to pick them up… Ervin: Hello? Hey Baldo where are you? Me and my wife has just arrived here in the bayan. Cedric: Don’t worry I’m almost there and I brought someone who missed you so much. Ervin: really? Who is it? Anyways we’ll just talk when you get here. Asia: not long after the phone call Baldo arrived riding in a bull. Nicole: Oh! You must be baldo. I’ve heard so much great things about you. And I presume that this is Labang of whom I have heard so much. Cedric: you’re right! It’s nice to finally meet the lady my brother has been talking about. Ervin: So baldo where are we going to ride? Why didn’t you bring the Kalesa? Cedric: father said to bring labang instead. I hope you don’t mind Maria? Nicole: oh of course, I don’t mind t all. Asia: what baldo and leon didn’t know was that, Even though Maria came and touched Labang's forehead with her long fingers she was a little hesitant in riding the big animal with long curving horns. Ervin: Maria! Nicole: Yes Noel? Asia: for a second there Baldo got confused on who Maria was referring to as Noel and pondered silently amongst himself thinking Father might not like it. But it was only the name of my brother Leon said backward and it sounded much better that way. Ervin: "There is Nagrebcan, Maria," Asia: She moved close to him and slipped her arm through his. And after a while she said quietly. Nicole: "You love Nagrebcan, don't you, Noel?" Asia: at that moment Ca Celin drove away hi-yi-ing to his horse loudly. At the bend of the camino real where the big duhat tree grew, he rattled the handle of his braided rattan whip against the spokes of the wheel. And Labang made an unusual sound. And Baldo found it funny. Ervin: "Hitch him to the cart, Baldo," Nicole: "Why does he make that sound? I have never heard the like of it." Ervin: "There is not another like it, I have yet to hear another bull call like Labang. In all the world there is no other bull like him." Nicole: "If you continue to talk about him like that, either I shall fall in love with him or become greatly jealous." Asia: leon and maria looked at each other and it seemed to me there was a world of laughter between them and in them. Baldo climbed into the cart over the wheel and Labang would have bolted, for he was always like that, but kept a firm hold on his rope. Leon started stacking the trunks at the back of the cart placing the smaller on top. Ervin: "Give me the rope, Baldo, Maria, sit down on the hay and hold on to anything." Cedric: okay. I will help you in securing the trunks Asia: as leon and baldo were working with the trunks, Maria sat up straight on the bottom of the cart, legs bent togther to one side, her skirts spread over them so that only the toes and heels of her shoes were visible. her eyes were on Leon's back. When Labang slowed down, Leon handed baldo the rope. Baldo knelt on the straw inside the cart and pulled on the rope until Labang was merely shuffling along, then made him turn around. Ervin: "What is it you have forgotten now, Baldo?" Asia: Leon didn’t get any answer from baldo. he sun had sunk and down from the wooded sides of the Katayaghan hills shadows were stealing into the fields. High up overhead the sky burned with many slow fires. When baldo sent Labang down the deep cut that would take them to the dry bed of the Waig which could be used as a path to our place during the dry season, Leon laid a hand on baldo’s shoulder and said sternly: Ervin: "Who told you to drive through the fields tonight?" Asia: and again he received no response from baldo. Ervin: "Baldo, you fool, answer me before I lay the rope of Labang on you. Why do you follow the Wait instead of the camino real?" Cedric: "Father, he told me to follow the Waig tonight, Manong."
Ervin: "And I suppose Father also told you to hitch Labang to the cart and meet us with him instead of with Castano and the calesa." Asia: Now the shadows took fright and did not crowd so near. His first words when he met his mother was …." Cedric: "Soon we will get out of the Wait and pass into the fields." Asia: Baldo came straight up to his father’s room to report of the day’s happenings Pat: "Did you meet anybody on the way?" Cedric: "No. but he was not saying anything." Nicole: "I am asking you. Nicole: "Have we far to go yet. Father. Asia: as leon and maria entered the house. free of dust and smoke. Cedric: Hoy urong! Hoy Celin! Cams: hey baldo are you with leon and his wife? Ervin: Hey there sis! Where is mother? Camille: Mother is there inside waiting for your arrival. but in a different way. for the lantern rocked jerkily with the cart." Nicole: "So it is. and light the lantern that hung from the cart between the wheels. Ahead. yonder is our star!" Ervin: "I have been looking at it." Cedric: I’ll just climb down. he might be an ogre. I am glad they are not here. Clumps of andadasi and arrais flashed into view and quickly disappeared as we passed by. Ervin: Yes. She sang with him. Baldo. Father Nobody passes through the Waig at night." Asia: All the laughter seemed to have gone out of her. Suddenly leon broke out into song and the song was 'Sky Sown with Stars'---the same that he and Father used to sing. Baldo.. and the cars. "You miss the houses. Do you remember how I would tell you that when you want to see stars you must come to Nagrebcan?" Nicole: "Yes. Father is the mildest-tempered. Cedric: I see you’ve taught her the song. for all the world. the elongated shadow of Labang bobbled up and down and swayed drunkenly from side to side. We drove through the fields because---but I'll be asking Father as soon as we get home. Noel. After the fields is home--Manong. Maria From the way you talk. Father. Noel.." Pat: "Was she afraid of Labang? Cedric: "No. Father. Noel." Ervin: "Does that worry you still. Noel?" Ervin: "Ask Baldo.." Ervin: "The air here is clean. Ervin: why yes indeed baldo. Ervin: "Good boy. She is very beautiful. and the people and the noise." . Ervin: "Maria. don't you Maria?" Nicole: "Yes.. where is he?" Mother: "He is in his room upstairs His leg is bothering him again. On the way She looked at the stars. he turned to maria and said. It is so many times bigger and brighter than it was at Ermita beach. Look at it.." Nicole: "So near already. He may not like me. Ervin: "Father." Pat: "What did he sing?" Cedric: "---Sky Sown with Stars." Asia: Soon enough they have arrived at their home and met the twins. gentlest man I know. baldo waited for Leon to say something. And Manong Leon sang. Maria? Nicole: "I am afraid." Asia: Without waiting for baldo to answer. she was not afraid. now? Have you ever seen so many stars before?" Nicole: "Look." Nicole: Noel." Ervin: "---you seethe camino real curves around the foot of the Katayaghan hills and passes by our house. why do you think Father should do that. we have been neglecting him. Except when his leg that was wounded in the Revolution is troubling him. She knows all the words to it.
