She stepped down from the carretela of Ca Celin with a quick, delicate grace. She was lovely.
And this is Labang of whom I have heard so much.
She was smiling at him, and I stopped in the act of tying the sinta across Labang's neck to the opposite end of the yoke, because her teeth were very white, her eyes were so full of laughter, and there was the small dimple high up on her right cheek.
If you continue to talk about him like that, either I shall fall in love with him or become greatly jealous. :D
When I sent Labang down the deep cut that would take us to the dry bed of the waig which could be used as a path to our place during the dry season, my brother Leon laid a hand on my shoulder and said sternly:
Who told you to drive to the fields tonight?
Have you ever seen so many stars before?
Have we far to go yet?
Soon we will get out from the waig and pass into the fields. After the field is home.
The door opened and my brotherLeon and Maria came in.
I looked at Maria and she was tall. Beside my brotjher 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.
