Lushiku lumo ikatula mbula nduma gete, usayayi nunke, bhali bhadini pandi lya gwigasha. Ulu idigiki kupelela ng’wipilinga ling’ong’ho ili lilibihi.

Bhakalibhona lyochi lilifumila ung`wipilinga bhakabhona giki ahenaho nahi pande lya bhupanga wabho. Bhakaja bhalipela. Aha bhashika mo bhisanga ndamhala ya mbiti na nkima wayo na bhana bhabho bhalota moto. Abhoyi bhali bhadibhonaga imbeho.

Yubhakaribhusha indamhala ya mbiti. Duliho Lung’wando. Yuyomba, “Hii, ilelo tapandika na shiliwa ja nyama.” Ulung`wando nang`hwe ushosha, “Muzidubhiza na mayange ilikubi ilya nyama ng`walipandikaga. Tulindagi tume tamu nang’wite umo mulitogelwa.

Ikanza litakulile, Lung`wando nu nke bhuma. Ulung’wando wimila, uyomba, “Lolagi ilipilinga lise lyina makoye, lilihaya gugwa. Tujagi pye abhose tukalihande iliwe lizidutugwila.” Ahenaho unamhala wa Mbiti na bhiye kihamo nu Lung’wando nu nke bhuja kujulihanda iliwe wa nguzu lizutubhagwila.

Aha ikanza lyabhita idoo ulung’wando ung’wila unke, “ Nke wane unimo, gwenuyu ndamu dugumala inguzu na gulumila kushisha nose tugucha. Nalibhona hambo hambo upele wangu wangu ukenhe ng`hingi ya ndumbulila.”

Nke wa Lung’wando upela na atigelile hangi. Lyubhita ikanza ulung’wando uhaya, “Ni bhuli unkima wane wadila ukushoka, nalibhona hambo hambo nankubhije na kiyenhe ing’hingi ya ndumbulila. Aliyo muzidulilekela iliwe likumumala.” Unamhala wa Mbiti uzunya, “Nahene jaga.” Haho na haho Lung´wando upela nhambo gete, atashokile. Ukunu numa umuna Mbiti nabhiye bhulihandatila iliwe lizitugwa. Bhunoga abhangi bhuyucha bhalidimilile iliwe.

Nosage indamhala ya Mbiti yuyomba, “iii! Gong’hana ulung`wndo ali nsala gete, watuwilaga uweyi nu Nke bhaje bhakenhe ng`hingi ya ndumbulila. Gashinaga bhalumbulilaga gete.
