The Ibarra Legacy: Waiting to Fall
Labag man sa kalooban niya, sinunod ni Miguel ang utos ng kanyang lolo. Nag-assume siya ng ibang identity at nag-apply na driver kay Amerie Benavides. Handa na rin siyang ligawan ito kahit hindi pa niya ito nakikilala at siya mismo ay dudang magkakagusto ito sa isang gaya niyang ‘driver’—all that in the name of his inheritance.
Pero may nalimutan silang i-consider. At na-realize niya lang iyon nang makaharap niya ang dalaga. Paano niya gagawin ang lahat ng nasa plano nila ng abuelo kung ganitong engaged na pala si Amerie sa iba?
Napailing si Miguel at napabuntong-hininga. But definitely, hindi ang mamanahin niyang department store ang pinanghihinayangan niya…
- Hacienda Ibarra was supposed to be in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, but I made a mistake when I submitted the first manuscript in the series and put it in Ilocos Norte instead. The hacienda being in Laoag worked better than it would have if it was in Vigan.
- Amerie’s friends, Allan and Christine are real people, and so are Amerie’s parents, Irene and Hector. Allan, Christine and Irene are three of my close friends, and Hector is my “manager’s” boyfriend.
- The real Christine really is a talented Internet researcher.
- The idea of the burnayan came from my brother who went on vacation in Ilocos. Amerie was supposed to be a businesswoman who owned a restaurant.
