Lushiku lumo muna Lung’wando ubhawila bhiye giki, “Nishindikilagi kubhukwingwa, aliyo tuje na sunge, bhuli ng’wene bhubhucha. Muna Mbiti atabhukije. Aho bhashika mu mapolu muna Mbiti ubhawila bhatongele nang’hwe ushoka kaya ya ng’wa Lung’wando na kaya ya ng’wa Jidivi na ya ng’wa Sala, ukasola bhana bhabili bhabhili bhuli kaya. Utunga ifulushi sunge wiza ubhawila ku bhucha isunge yeniyo bhumanhya na bhanhu ugishiwa muna Mbiti. “Ng’wadila muna juchu, madilo ng’wana juchu, madilo miza bhanga na bhagubhuchaga nigo na kumana yaya.

Muna Lung’wando wiganika gete, ung’wila muna mbiti atongele bhifule iki atina nigo uwei. Utongela muna Mbiti, aho bhasula umu nigo bhubhabhona bhana bhabho. Ubhashosha ukabhenha bhana bha mbiti.

Lung’wando utunga ifulushi muna jidivi wimila ha jifulu, unola muna mbiti ulu washika bhuja bhukampandika. Bhumanhya na bhanhu, ugisha muna Mbiti, madilo juchu, madilo na bhimila bhakubhuchaga unigo na kumana yaya. Ugishiwa lung’wando, madilo muna juchu madilo nakatunga nu shashanija umo watungile uwe.

Ugishiwa muna Sala, madilo muna juchu madilo nakimanikila nushisha bhane ugishi

wa muna Jidivi madilo muna juchu, madilo nakima na jigulu nilolekeja iki nali nyagokolo ubhuja muna mbiti, nigwa ng’wana juchu, yaya masemba duhu. Bhushika ng`hana gubhukwiye ya Lung`wando bhusung’anhwa na bhakwelaye bhandya kulya, muna mbiti ugwa ng’hana ng’wana juchu yaya masemba duhu.

Bhulagwa kuja kaya muna mbiti usanga bhana bhakwe bhalinduhu, bhatandatu. Umana giki bhabhalile uko bhugeni ukamuja muna Lung’wando bhana bhane wabhachalile ku bhukwiyo, ukagema sunge, lelo nakukulya nu bhebhe yaya muna juchu.

Nakulipa nyama tukwisangila kwibambasi dilu. Aha wela ubhasanga bhana mhuli bhagulyaga masindi ili tula mbula, wingila munda ya mhuli, muna Sayayi alina silimbi ufula bhiwila bhana Mhuli tulekanagi tumane uyo akufulaga silimbi.

Ufula hangi Sayayi bii! Bhana Mhuli bhumulaga ng’wichabho ufuma akupelaga muna Lung`wando, kujung’wila muna mbiti tujagi ku nyama na bhulagaga. Wandya kulya muna mbiti gushila na mhayo.
