CHARACTERS
Kulas, an out-and-out sabungero, or cockfighting addict
Celing, wife of Kulas
Sioning, friend of Celing
Castor, a middleman in the cockpit
Teban, an old manservant of Kulas and Celing Kulas: Ahem! Er. . . nice morning, isn't it, Celing? How are you?
Celing (dryly): Oh, fine. I feel very fine. Thanks for thinking of me.
Kulas: Oh, come, Celing, that's not a nice way to say it.
Celing: Well, you certainly take a lot of interest in me these days. Usually our first thought is for your fighting cocks and your last one is for your wife.
Kulas: Come, come, Celing. You have first place in my heart. I know to appreciate a wife like you.
Celing: Really? But when I see you fondle your cocks, I feel envious, I am jealous.
Kulas: But Celing, you know that I only cherish my fighting cocks for our own good.
Celing: What good are you talking about? If it's stewed chicken you're after. I can get good, fat hens in the market any time. We don't have to get a roster killed in the cockpit and lose money in the process. I can do the killing myself right here for nothing.
Kulas: Come now, Celing, I don't expect to lose all the time. Look at this cock for example… why it is a sure winner — its scales are perfect.
Celing: That's the same thing you said about that unbeatable cock you bet ten pesos on last week. Did you like the way I cooked it?
Kulas: Oh, but that was an accident. Everybody was betting two
