Bayani – Tale Weaver Prompt: Substance

As they were gathering to pay respect to his remains, Bayani looked peaceful. He would be remembered as a strong, centred man of substance, a self-made man. His father died when Bayani was young and his mother brought him up from being a seamstress. Young Bayani was very intelligent and won some scholarship for his studies. He also started working at 16, first as a busboy, then as a waiter. He was so grateful to this restaurant that he never left it even though he was already working as an administrative manager in another company during the day. He still carried on working as a waiter in the evening.

Bayani thought he would live forever and that he would have all the energy needed for his lifestyle. He worked hard, he played hard, too. He had a lot of friends. He was so popular that if he had wanted to be a politician, he would easily win. He had a lot of love. He married his first love at 20 and had 4 lovely children. There were also other women and probably other children, too. He was a very attractive person and one of his weaknesses was he never said no to anyone. He loved his food and alcohol. Lots of them. With this lifestyle, no one was surprised when he passed away before he was 50.
