Sample text

I to General Santos once before, but having gone by air, was not familiar with the approaches to town. Places in Mindanao have a way of simply popping up from under the wheels of the plane, with the airports looking dismally similar, but the invitation this time was to go by land. Friends had arranged for us to be picked up in Davao City in a Scout and to be driven 150 miles all the way to General Santos, or Dadiangas, if you wish. Old-timers switch one name for the other, with neither explanation nor apology: Dadiangas is presumably the older name, of course, but General Santos is more vivid history.

When you are nine, dreams come easy. The night before the Scout came, I watched her make her own bed, watched her lay out her familiar plastic sheet and spread the old blankets over it, her lower lip caught worriedly between her teeth. She was trying not to look at me. We had had a full day, our diminished family of three children and two parents, a dip in the hotel pool, lunch at Toril, supper on the highway, a brief ride in the mayor's limousine, a venture into some stores, a rediscovery of one another in what was a sudden, happy seizure of familial togetherness.

They surface when there's a fiesta anywhere within a radius of 50 miles. They belong to the same guild that solicits contributions for an anonymous deceased, to be mourned at a wake for the umpteenth time. They also service policemen too shy to do their own tong collection. One afternoon, one of them came to the door and rapped smartly, and when I looked from a second floor window, all I could see was a leather jacket and something difficult to make out which was big, heavy, and wrapped in a newspaper, cradled in the crook of his elbow.
