|Bagat (Shape-Shifting Demon)|
Mom was walking home from school with her younger sister Imee and their older cousin Patricia. Imee and Patricia had fetched mom from school. It was about 6 p.m. and they decided to take a shortcut by walking through the tall stalks of sugarcane or tubuhan (sugarcane fields)
"Imee, narinig mo ba ang tunog na iyon?" [Imee, did you hear that sound?] mom asked.
