Waliho ngosha umo walatolile, ubyala bhana bhagosha bhike ikumi na bhabhili. Huna lulu nkima kubhazugila bhana bhingi cheniki wapandikaga makoye.

Makoye kizilaga hikubhi, lyanguhaga kushila. Bhandya lulu bhana kuiimba (kutaya) nduhu ukwiguta. Likubhi lya shilaga mayu. Twamalaga ikubhi. Ngikulu ubhashogeja, “Twite ki lulu?”

Huna lushiku lumo kizaho kageni. Ngeni umuja, “Bhanhu bhako bhakumanaga bhulomba (bhutaya) ikubhi bhuli?” Uhaya, Nite kinehe?” Mhuli itabhunagwa nkondo gwayo nakwiyumilija duhu.

Natigelile kuleka kubhazugila.” Ngeni ung’wila giki, ulu ulitogwa bhana bhako bhoye kumana bhulomba makubhi, nakulange isala. Ulu wazuga ikubhi, watula fugo, walileka ikubhi lingi hishiga likale lilipogoma, kushiga kubisha bhugali moto kwikale gulibhaka ho. Gemaga nzila yeniyo hamo ikukwambilija.”

Aho wabhatwalila bhugali, ikubhi lyali isebu. Aho bhandya kulya lulu, ulu wagema kulija ikubhi lingi wapya waduma kulija ikubhi lingi. Bhose bhita chene, nabhuduma kwinja ikubhi lingi. Bhuyinenela (kwinja kakubhi kado kado. Nose bhugali bhushila ikubhi litali lilimo mu nungu.

Ngeni ung’wila, wabhona isala lyenilo tumamilaga giko shiku jose. Iki mhuli itabhunagwa nkondo gwayo. Utudula kubhapeja bhana iki kugayiwa ikubhi iyumilijage duhu.
