Signs of Storm
(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)
Crisostomo Ibarra and a servant arrive at the San Diego cemetery to look for the grave of his father, Don Rafael Ibarra. After failing to locate the grave, his servant asks the gravedigger for help. The gravedigger replies that he had dug up the body of the don and planned to bury it in the Chinese cemetery, as instructed by Padre Damaso. Since it was raining, however, he says, he threw the body into the river. Angered upon hearing the account, Crisostomo leaves. At the cemetery gate, he meets Padre Salvi and attacks the Curate, whom he mistakes for Father Damaso.
