"A Coconut tree stands tall. 

It was once struck by lightning during the typhoon, setting its crown of leaves on fire.
We can imagine a flow of electrical energy going through its trunk, down to the roots
- but there was none of that.

There probably was, but the tree stands there lifeless.

It is believed that one can find an anting-anting at the very point on which the lightning strikes,

it is called "Pangil ng Kidlat". 

Mythology says that it can only be discovered by its chosen bearer. 

The "Pangil ng Kidlat", a phantom creeping at night, presenting itself in the dream. 

These could all be true.

But then again, it's just a story."
