Waliho Ntemi walazenganilwe na kahabhi. Huna lulu kahabhi kenako kali katolile nkima wawiza nginu. Huna lulu Ntemi wigonga kuntaja nkima uyo. Aling’wila giki, “Tukabhanage nakwinhe unke wane, nang’ho uninhe nke wako.”

Bhizunilija bhose, aho wiza kuntola nkima ng’wenuyo ugakonda no, nu nkima uyo kantolaga akahabhi ugina no. Huna lulu Ntemi umuja ng’habhi, “Kunguno ki nkima hali nene wali wabhubhi aliyo hali bhebhe wabhela?”

Ng’habi ung’wila Ntemi, “Nishage nyama ya lulimi.” Huna lulu Ntemi wandya kuyusinza mang’ombe, wanzugila nke malulimi aliyo nahene ongeja gukonda.

Nose Ntemi ung’wila ng’habhi, “Litwalage like lyako, nshoshage nke wane.” Aha wiza kunshosha shiku ikumi atajimalile wandya hangi gukonda.

Uyo wanshosha kuli ng’habhi wandya hangi kugina. Nose Ntemi usaya ukang’wila giki, “Ulu utaniwilile ishikaginyaga bhakima ndi kubhulaga.”

Kahabhi kung’wila, “Unene nakakuwilaga ulang’winhage nyama ya lulimi, kwene kuhaya giki, lekaga kunduka nke wako, unomela mihayo ya nyafulafula.” Aho oya kudukwa na wandya kuhoyelwa chiza wandya na kugina.
