A Night In The Hills :)

  3. 3. CHARACTERS: • Gerardo Luna • His wife • Ambo • Ate Tere or Sotera • Perigrina 3
  4. 4. A NIGHT IN THE HILLS 8/20/2014 4 Gerardo always think about forest. He wanted to go to the forest because he taught that forest is beautiful
  5. 5. 8/20/2014 5 Straight –growing trees, mountains and clean streams are things that he always picture out about forest
  6. 6. . 8/20/2014 . 6 Ambo came to their places to buy some cheap earrings for his wife’s store. Ambo proudly told Gerardo about the orchid season in their place and also about the trees and living in the forest for weeks.
  7. 7. 8/20/2014 . 7 Gerardo told his wife about the conversation he had with Ambo.
  8. 8. 8 One of these days when he least expected it, the dream would come true. How he did not know. It seemed so unlikely that he would deliberately contrive things so as to make the dream a fact. Then his wife died.
  9. 9. 9 Gerardo and Ambo had the conversation about how life is when living in the forest.
  10. 10. 8/20/2014 10 Before actually going to the planned trip, Gerardo’s Ate Tere is not so keen on the idea. She wants him to marry Peregrina who will surely take him the minute he proposes.
  11. 11. 11 Ambo and Gerardo go to the hills, and it is among the foothills where they spend noontime. Gerardo is tired and sweaty, and he asks for water, which, according to Ambo is ten minutes away. They walk and walk, and along the way Gerardo experiences nature in a manner that is not that wonderful for him.
  12. 12. 8/20/2014 12 Finally they enter the dim forest.
  13. 13. 8/20/2014 13 Gerardo is uncomfortable on his bed of small branches and twigs. He cannot sleep that night
  14. 14. 8/20/2014 14 He thinks of his wife, not fondly, though. He also thinks of God. He is oppressed by nostalgia.
  15. 15. 8/20/2014 15 There is an eerie light in the forest, and Gerardo hears strange sounds that are caused by tree worms. Then he hears water from afar. All in all, he feels that he will never understand the forest.
  16. 16. 8/20/2014 16 Gerardo goes home, first getting his house’s key from his Ate Tere. There he meets Peregrina whom he tells “Pereg, as soon as I get these clothes off I shall come to ask you a question that is very—very important to me.”
  17. 17. 8/20/2014 17 As she smiled eagerly but uncertainly into his face, he heard a jangling in his hand. He felt, queerly, that something was closing above his hand, and that whoever was closing it, was rattling the keys.
