Ang Erehe at Filibustero
I know it's getting late, it's around nine in the evening, I should be at home but no, I am here in JCo sipping my white choco frappe with double shot and my two alcapone donuts and glazed donuts untouched. It's not I don't like tHem, in fact they are my favorite, it's just I can't get my eyes off my book. It's about to end anyway.
Then a loud explosion from the outside of the cafe was heard, everyone panics, it was chaos, everyone's heading to one direction. In the midst of them I saw a man sporting blue-tinted glasses with weird clothes holding a lamp. At least in my opinion it is a lamP an old style lamp.
Then my eyes travel down on my book again, it was opened on the page where the once lovely man, Crisostomo Ibarra became Simoun, a wealthy bearded jewelry tycoon sporting blue-tinted glasses who came back to avenge.
Tha man outside the store, it was him, it was Simoun.
The lamp he's carrying is actually a bomb!
I ran to him to calm him, "Don Ibarra, mag hunos dili ka" (Don Ibarra, calm down).
"Sino ka, nasaan ako? Kailangan kong ipag higanti ang nakaraan" ("Who are you, where am I? I need to avenge the past")
I was just about to answer when he disappeared into thin air again.
1.To my readers,
Okay first of all, this novel I am talking about is actually a novel written by the national hero of the Philippines, Dr. Jose Rizal. It is called El Filibusterismo/ Ang Pilibustero it means enemy of the government or "The Reign of Greed" in English. It was the sequel to Noli Me Tangere which means Touch me Not.
2. I have already forgotten the plot of the story, my niece just asked me what haooened to Ibarra (Simoun) in the first book because she's reading it so I've decided to use ElFili here.
3. Erehe means enemy of the church
Filibuster means enemy of the government/state.
So the title means The Enemy of church and state.
Correct me if I am wrong my fellow Filipinos
