II. Nagrebcan, Bauang,
Baldo was the one who narrated the story. He was the younger brother of Leon. He was an obedient, innocent and naive young boy. Leon was the one who brought home a wife. He was a responsible, gentle and a loving husband. Maria had been born and grew up in a big city. She was the pretty wife of Leon. She was a supportive, creative and a loving wife. Father was the one who instructed Baldo on what he will do while he is on the road together with Leon and Maria. He made an ingenious way to find out if Maria is really worthy to live in a rural place. Labang - the bull whom Baldo considers as his “pet”
In the story, Leon arrived with his wife, Maria in the rural meeting Leon's brother, Baldo for the first time. They took a surprising route home for Leon, but it was meant as a test for the wife to see if she could endure the sacrifices she made and meet her new family.
The entire story serves as a test for the wife. Each test was to show whether the woman could indeed live with strangers all for love in which the main characters learn that though there are sacrifices it is worth it in the end. He even begins to think about getting himself a wife eventually. This helps to show the story and how it developed. He notices through all the tests the woman though afraid will preserve through the trials in order to be happy with Leon at his home.
The fact that the rural is different from the city can be somewhat discouraging the closer they get to the home, but Maria still manages to overcome any trials. The wife admits to having some fear, but also shows clearly it did not stop her. VI LESSONS
