Hi, I am Little Siawan, the son of Ayong and Ingan. I am called Little Siawan because my late grandfather’s name is Siawan, and I am named after him.
My mother is the daughter of Apo Madallay, and the sister of Tio Agawe. My mother has Encantor power and I have power, too.
I know that I have Encantor power because sometimes it shows when I am playing. When I run so fast, my feet get off the ground like I am flying and when I try to lift heavy objects, I can lift them without much effort.
I have other powers that are usual for those who have Encantor blood but my mother tells me not to show off, and not to use them for fun and games.
You will meet me in Book 3. Tara is my cousin and one day, I hope my cousin and I can use our power to help mankind.
Apo – grandmother or grandfather; also refers to a grandchild; can also be used to address a very old person not related to you as a sign of respect. Tio – uncle
Hi, I am Gayon. I am one of the two best friends of Agawe but we did not start out well.
My life was dramatic by itself. I was stolen when I was born and raised by parents who had given me everything. The father that I grew up with was a warrior and a datu with a huge landholding. I thought I was born with the proverbial “silver spoon” in my mouth and it gave me a little bit of arrogance. Who would want to go back to his own parents? But my real parents were also landlords with vast estate. Talk about luck.
I tried to kill Agawe in the first book but we ended up being good friends, and together with Ayong, we made a pact of brotherhood. The second book found us in a supernatural world of fantasy. In it, I tried to kill Agawe again, but this time I was in an evil spell. I wonder how Agawe could trust me after that but he did! In fact, he saved my life at the end of the second book.
Looking forward to another adventure with the guy.
Oh, by the way, did I tell you that we are heroes in the spirit world?
I started out to be his only best friend until Gayon came into the picture. Well, Gayon was at first villainy but we later on found him to be a good guy. Gayon is actually my blood relative but I did not know that until the end of the first book.
Both Gayon and I are grandsons of Apo Abet. I am actually the grandnephew because my grandmother was Apo Abet’s sister but when both my grandmother and mother died, Apo Abet raised me like a real grandson.
At the end of Book 1, I married Agawe’s sister Ingan and Agawe became my brother-in-law. Don’t tell Gayon but I really believe I deserved to be called Agawe’s best friend because there could only be one best friend, right?
Anyway, the three of us got the adventure of our lives in Book 2. We were transported into another world, the spirit world. We met the enchanted men of the Encantor Kingdom, the birdmen, and the little people called the Dilikans. Looking forward to another adventure with Agawe who could not seem to stay put. With him, there is always an adventure lurking in the shadows.
Apo – grandmother or grandfather; also refers to a grandchild; can also be used to address a very old person not related to you as a sign of respect.
I grew up as a slave with slave parents and a slave grandmother. When I witnessed a tribal ritual, my life took a vicious turn. I was thrown into an adventure that had put my life in danger so many times.
I learned that I was not who I was made to believe. I took off to seek the truth about my roots but the truth was more devastating. I was doomed to die at birth because of a tribal belief that I could bring bad luck to my own family but destiny had a different plan for me.
At the end of Book 1, I and my real father had to battle it out to death. I became a datu when my father died and I was left to inherit his vast estate.
Just as I settled into my new life, adventure came calling and this time I and my friends, Ayong and Gayon entered a supernatural world to risk our lives battling with evil. There we met friends who helped us succeed in our fight against evil. The best thing is that I met a warrior named Atina who would become so much a part of my life.
Also in Book 2, I am introduced to more surprises about my real heritage. It seems that my mother is no ordinary human which makes me no ordinary human. It’s too much for me because I am a simple man, all I want is a simple life in a world where humans live simple lives with their families. With the help of my friends, the truth has become easier to accept, especially when my friends and I are hailed as a heroes.
Truth be told, there are advantages to being an extraordinary human, but it does not make you happier. Happiness still lies in love within your family, and friends, of course.
Please join me in another adventure when Book 3 comes out.
Egul’s head hang when he was tied to the post. He was still unconscious. Agawe could see Egul clearly from where he was. He could also see the dead man lying on a mat in the floor. The body was surrounded with flowers and dressed in the most beautiful clothes he had ever seen. Continue reading “Agawe: The Adventures of the Slave Prince”
