An Idyl on an Azotea
(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)
Crisostomo Ibarra visits Maria Clara at Calle Anloague. They speak privately at the azotea, about the years that they have not seen each other. Ibarra strives to prove his love for Maria Clara by showing her the old leaves that had been given by the girl seven years earlier, while they had gone swimming with his mother. Maria Clara, in return, reads an old letter written by Ibarra before leaving for abroad.
