Oh, the fragrance of her. He swallowed and brought up to his mouth more cud and the sound of his insides was like a drum. This short story won first prize in the Commonwealth Literary Contest in He did not say Maring.
At the bend of the camino real where the big duhat tree grew, he rattled the handle of his braided rattan whip against the spokes of the wheel. Now the shadows took fright and did not crowd so near. She looked down once at her high-heeled shoes, then she gave her left hand to my brother Leon, placed a foot on the hub of the wheel, and in one breath she had swung up into the cart.
I am glad they are not here. We met the twins, Urong and Celin, and I said "Hoy! When Labang slowed down, my brother Leon handed to me the rope. Except when his leg that was wounded in the Revolution is troubling him, Father is the mildest-tempered, gentlest man I know.

The sun was in our eyes, for it was dipping into the bright sea. He had laid the roll of tobacco on the windowsill once more. He narrates their journey to their home in Nagrebcan. As I passed through the kitchen, there were Mother and my sister Aurelia and Maria and it seemed to me they were crying, all of them.
The door opened and my brother Leon and Maria came in. And they shouted back and asked if my brother Leon and his wife were with me. All the laughter seemed to have gone out of her. I climbed into the cart over the wheel and Labang would have bolted, for he was always like that, but I kept a firm hold on his rope.
My brother Leon put down the two trunks on the grassy side of the road. Ahead, the elongated shadow of Labang bobbled up and down and swayed drunkenly from side to side, for the lantern rocked jerkily with the cart.

And again I saw her eyes on the long curving horns and the arm of my brother Leon around her shoulders. The light of the stars broke and scattered the darkness so that one could see far on every side, though indistinctly.
He was breathing hard, but I knew he was more thirsty than tired.
Then he was standing beside us, and she turned to him eagerly. And each time the wheels encountered a big rock, her voice would catch in her throat, but my brother Leon would sing on, until, laughing softly, she would join him again.ANALYSIS OF THE STORY HOW MY BROTHER LEON BROUGHT HOME A WIFE This might be my second read of How My Brother Leon Brought Home A Wife but this is definitely the first I’ve tried to digest the beauty of the prose as an experience in itself.
