Lushiku lumo ng’wana Nkuba bhali na Padri bhakwihalalijaga giki, ‘Ubhebhe ng’wana Nkuba iki ugenhaga mbula gemaga ulu igunipandika mu nzila.”

Ng’wana Nkuba uhaya igugupandika ni Ngudu utali ugushiga. Padri uhaya, “Nagugwinha shilingi jihumbi jimo, ulu mbula yunipandika mu nzila.

Ng’wana Nkuba uhaya nang’hwe, “Ugusola ng’ombe ulu idugupandika.” Padri ubacha gali yakwe ulaga na guja. Ng’wana Nkuba ugasoseja ijibhiga jakwe nang’hwe, ikanza idololo mbula yandya kutula nu padri adinashiga ni Ngudu.

Igali yukwama mutembe. Ulomba bhanhu bhakungwambilija ifunyiwe. Aho yafuma padri ushoga kuli Ng`wana Nkuba gung’winha ishilingi jihumbi jimo. Padri na kumala kuzunya, ng`hana idulile.
