How My Brother Leon Brought Home A Wife
Scenes 4, 5, and 6
" Yes, but in a different way. I am glad they are not here"
•"But it is so very wide here," the light of the stars broke and scattered the darkness so that one could see far on every side, though indistinctly.
"You miss the houses, and the cars, and the people, and the noise, don't you?"
"He is in his room upstairs," his leg is bothering him again.
"Father...where is he?
" Did you meet anybody on the way?" " Was she afraid of Labang?" " What did he sang?"
"No Father, nobody passes through the Waig at night" "She is very beautiful Father." " No Father, she was not afraid." " She looked at the stars, Father. And Manong Leon sang."
With difficulty I turned Labang to the left, for he wanted to go straight on. He was breathing hard, but I knew he was more thirsty than tired. In a little while we drope up the grassy side onto the camino real.
I stopped Labang on the road before our house and would have gotten down but my brother Leon took the rope and told me to stay on the cart. There was light downstairs in the kitchen, and Mother stood in the doorway, and I could see her smiling shyly.
He was silent again. I could hear the low voices of Mother and my sister Aurelia downstairs. The door opened and my brother Leon and Maria went in. Ilooked at Maria and she was lovely. She was tall. Beside my brother Leon, she was tall and very still. Then I went out, and in the darkened hall the fragrance of her was like a morning when papayas are in bloom.
