Chapter 16:

Sisa

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

Sisa waits for her two sons, Crispin and Basilio.  Knowing that they are hungry, she prepares a meal consisting of duck leg, wild boar’s meat, tomatoes and five pieces of fish.  Her husband arrives, and eats all the food, leaving only three pieces of fish.  She patiently waits for Crispin and Basilio and is surprised when, during the night, only Basilio arrives.
