The Triangle Man and the Flightless Diwata
By Kate Osias
Artworks by Dex Fernandez

The day the Triangle Man came was the day that Amparo finally found reprieve. It hadn't been easy as the only diwata unable to fly; it had been worse looking so different from the fairies that darted and whizzed (and fluttered and buzzed) in an explosion of color, along with the soft wisps, sparkling fireflies and shimmering dust flakes.
