Buy-anon, the daughter, invites him to sit on her lap, but the boy refuses, saying he is merely a boy. He is well received and is offered the young daughter of the datu, named Paniguan. Then he fights the invaders by the seashore; the deaths are innumerable.

She appears, offers him chew, and asks him to be her husband, saying he will be their savior. The leader of the invaders invites Tanagyaw to his country.

Manuel’s sengedurug focuses on Agyu’s son, Tanagyaw. Agyu’s men fight on the seashore of the bay of Linayangon.

Kuyasu retaliates immediately by spearing the Moro datu in the chest. Then, he leaves for Sandawa mountain (Mount Apo) to hunt.

In battle scenes, for instance, the rhythm quickens and the singer is said to be abmannahansang, that is, chanting his lines in a staccato manner.

The Agyu is divided into two parts: the pemahra/ pamara or an invocation and the ulahingon or narrative proper.

Banlak hurries to Ayuman to inform Agyu and others that Kuyasu has slain the Moro datu. Inasmuch as the Moro datu has been killed, there is no other choice for the brothers but to leave their homeland. After this victory, Agyu decides to move to another place. His brother Lono/Lena tries to cut a path on the side of the mountain, while two women, Yambungan and Ikwangan, are left behind, swinging on a vine from bank to bank over a stream. The animal is cut into pieces as are the honeycombs.

They depart at once to llian, upon whose mountains Agyu decides to build a fort. Agyu orders his followers to gather big stones and logs that can be rolled down the slopes should the Moros pursue them. The Moro warriors come up the Pulangi River and espy the fort built by the Ilianon. As the Moro invaders are mounting the height, Agyu orders his followers to let loose the logs and boulders. Something stings their feet, and they shout for Lono to come. He locates the bee’s hive in the hollows of palm trees. As the meat and honey are distributed among the people, Agyu remembers Banlak’s wife Mungan in Ayuman, whom they have left behind because of her affliction. Lono volunteers to deliver Mungan her share of the slaughter. He is surprised to find the meat running and the honey flying like bees ahead of him. Lono tells her that he has come to give her a share of the meat and honey.
