  11. 11. SUMMARY OF THE STORY The story is about an old man named Serapio who’s being accused of having a child by the Federation that consists of poor people living on the streets by the care of others. This Federation were opposing to Mang Serapio’s child because the donations that are for him will be spent on the needs of the child in their place.
  12. 12. The two investigators are too determined to prove Serapio’s ownership of the child. They have uncovered his past and learned that his wife and daughter were already gone but it certainly doesn’t conclude his present child. But, three witnesses came and said that they indeed, saw Mang Serapio taking care of the child. They were desperate to find Mang Serapio to be guilty because all of his possessions would be passed onto them. Serapio fought his rite that the witnesses’ proof is not enough but they insisted on looking over the his chest because they thought there’s something inside of it that’s very much related with the situation. As they opened the chest, they found nothing except a dirty plastic doll. It was actually the toy of his daughter in which he takes care of it as remembrance. The remainder of his daughter’s absence in his life and gives him happiness and hope.
  13. 13. Because of this matter, all the accusations weren’t enough to bring him down but, he was still found guilty since he violated the law of federation. It said that he shouldn’t have spent the money for such unnecessary interests. Another reason is because they don’t want this event to let other members be encouraged for only their personal happiness. The federation only wants them to live a miserable life and be dependent on the federation alone. Mang Serapio’s eyeballs were removed in such a dirty way because of the reason that they want others to pity him and give him more money for the federation.
