Bhaliho bhanhu bhabhili, uungi mboku uungi Jishegena bhalibhazengile jijiji jimo. Lushiku lumo bhumanyiwa guwinga nkilo ya mongo. Ubhuka gwandya ujishegena aho ogashika ha mongo usanga mongo ng’wingi gete uduma ugubhita alu winga bhononaga bhanhu bhalimba, bhaliyunja na jose jamalagagubhejiwa ijawiza.

Nyango guligulolelile guko ali jose jilinung’hila okalalagwa no. Ikanza ido ushiga nang’hwe umboku nu nang’ha gokwe. Jishegena umuja, “Ginehe nkoyi ujile he?” Mboku uhaya, “Namanyiwe guwinga niyo naliohagati gete unene, aliyo lulu mongo gokalaga gete nadum agukila nkilo, udiyigwaga iyombo nubhunung’hu bho shiliwa.

Mboku ushosha, “Naligwa noyi niyo.” Hanuma lulu dite ginehe dubhone gubhita duje uko jiza jili? Umboku ung’wila ujishegena giki, “Ubhebhe nkoyi ulina miso, lelo amagulu nduhu. Unene nane nalina magulu amiso nadinago.”

Nalulu nzugu nagusesele iki ubhebhe ulina miso, ugumanubhona aho hiza. Bhose bhizunilija, ujishegena useselwa nu mboku.
Ujishegena wandya ung’wila umboku bhitaga gumoso, imaga lyashiga isanzu, kajaga lizile igogo, uja nkono gonila. Bhanhu bhenabho bhukila mongo nabhuja kuwinga bhukalya malya chiza.
