Every summer, my best friend and their family would go to Bicol to visit her grandmother. She told me a lot of scary creatures she or her relatives encounter, one of these are the Nuno (elf or dwarf).
My best friend always go to the back garden of her grandma to enjoy the beautiful sight, when she was about to sleep; she noticed a small scary person sitting beside her. she was so scared that she was about to faint, the “Person” was not human nor was a spirit. it was wearing a tattered blue hat, it also had sharp teeth and scary brown foundation (skin). She saw the “thing” leave and disappear in front of an old mango tree. as soon as it left, she hurried back inside the house and told her cousins about it. her cousins told her it was a “Nuno sa Puno”.
Everyday, my best friend sits on the bench and waits for the nuno to come. and every day, the Nuno’s hat changes, some times it was pink, red, green and all the colors of the rainbow. Even though her cousins warned her not to visit the elves, she really wanted to know about them. lastly, her cousins told her that a man once visited the Nuno; Her eldest cousin claimed to see the man disappear into thin air. that made my friend scared so she never went back again near the bench.
On the last day of summer, her family was about to leave Bicol, she wanted to see the nuno one last time, so she went back to the bench and pretended to be asleep, the Nuno came, but it’s hat was different, it was colored black. after it left, she went back to her cousins and asked them what the black color means. “It’s a bad omen! be careful, we told you not to visit them!”
When she left the province, nothing bad happened… I guess her cousins were just scaring her. but she knew that the NUNO she was real.
