His longing for them was kept inside that eventually burst into silent and tears for there were some questions he could not afford to deliver to his mother, Halimah and his grandfather. But in the end, Halimah answered all his questions at the time Vito had his thirteenth birthday.

Halimah told him that his father was used to be a Tolotalang who had different belief from him. She also narrated the moment when his father betrayed his belief and took Vino, his twin brother away.

After getting the news that the father still alive and stayed in town, Vito was willful to see him and his twins. Vito covertly escaped to find out his father.
