end of chapter 4
Finished Chapter 4 of The Maharlika Legacy, writing 1, 435 words to give me a running total of 22, 736. Still behind schedule, but what the heck, I'm going to reach that finish line.
Here's an excerpt:
In the days following the events of that night, people would have their own stories of what really happened and who was telling the truth about the second Battle of Quiapo.
As darkness fell upon the land, the rallyists decided to proceed to Quiapo Church and attempt to hold a vigil at Plaza Miranda, which they said presaged the proclamation of Martial Law once in this company’s history, but would now be witness to the people’s struggle to prevent its second coming.
With torches and electric lamps they came, chanting, singing, shouting, calling upon the people of Quiapo to join them and stand fast in protecting the country from those who would trample upon their rights.
