Storyboard Text

  • "I have no need for a house,"
  • This house is yours. I built it for you. Make it your own, live in it as long as you wish. I will build another house for Madulimay."
  • I'll go to my own house. My parents are old. They will need help in the planting of the beans, in the pounding of the rice."
  • "I will give you the field that I dug out of the mountains during the first year of our marriage," "You know I did it for you. You helped me to make it for the two of us."
  • "Go back to the dance, "It is not right for you to be here. They will wonder where you are, and Madulimay will not feel good. Go back to the dance." --You know that I cannot.
  • "I would feel better if you could come, and dance---for the last time. The gangsas are playing."
  • She bit her lips now, then shook her head wildly, and sobbed. She thought of the seven harvests that had passed, the high hopes they had in the beginning of their new life, the day he took her away from her parents across the roaring river, on the other side of the mountain, the trip up the trail which they had to climb, the steep canyon which they had to cross. The waters boiled in her mind in forms of white and jade and roaring silver; the waters tolled and growled,
  • "Lumnay,""Lumnay, if I did this it is because of my need for a child. You know that life is not worth living without a child. The man have mocked me behind my back. You know that."
  • "I know it," he said. "I will pray that Kabunyan will bless you and Madulimay."
  • They both drank of the water then rested on the other bank before they made the final climb to the other side of the mountain. She looked at his face with the fire playing upon his features---hard and strong, and kind. He had a sense of lightness in his way of saying things which often made her and the village people laugh. How proud she had been of his humor. The muscles where taut and firm, bronze and compact in their hold upon his skull---how frank his bright eyes were. She looked at his body the carved out of the mountains five fields for her; his wide and supple torso heaved as if a slab of shining lumber were heaving; his arms and legs flowed down in fluent muscles--he was strong and for that she had lost him.
  • "Awiyao, Awiyao, my husband," "I did everything to have a child,""Look at me," "Look at my body. Then it was full of promise. It could dance; it could work fast in the fields; it could climb the mountains fast. Even now it is firm, full. But, Awiyao, I am useless. I must die."
  • I don't care about the fields," . "I don't care about the house. I don't care for anything but you. I'll have no other man."
  • "I'll go back to my father, I'll die."
  • "It will not be right to die,"
  • "Then you hate me," "If you die it means you hate me. You do not want me to have a child. You do not want my name to live on in our tribe."
  • "Then you'll always be fruitless."
  • "If you fail--if you fail this second time--" "No--no, I don't want you to fail."
  • "I'll keep my beads," "Awiyao, let me keep my beads," "I'll keep them because they stand for the love you have for me," "I love you. I love you and have nothing to give."
  • "You will keep the beads. They come from far-off times. My grandmother said they come from up North, from the slant-eyed people across the sea. You keep them, Lumnay. They are worth twenty fields."
  • "If I do not try a second time," "it means I'll die. Nobody will get the fields I have carved out of the mountains; nobody will come after me."
  • "If I fail," "I'll come back to you. Then both of us will die together. Both of us will vanish from the life of our tribe."
