Ching was very disappointed when she was not chosen to play one of the queens of the Santacruzan. Instead, she was only given the role of an angel. Ching decided that she would pretend she was sick on the Santacruzan day so that she would not have to join the procession. This is a cautionary tale about a girl who loses sight of the true meaning behind religious rituals.
