Kale yaliho Shimba na Ng’hungulume. Bhalibhazenganilwe aliyo kwibhona yaya, kwike bhiyigwaga shilaka bhuli ng’wene.

Lushiku lumo muna shimba akigwa lilaka lya ng’hungulume bhujiku bho hingikana kwela (saa 9) akamuja muna Mbiti, “Shilaka sha ng’wa nani isho nashigwaga?” imbiti yuyomba, “Ishilaka shenisho sha Ng’hungulume ilihilila ng’wigunguli.” Shimba yumuja hangi umuna Mbiti, “Umuna Ng’hungulume ng’wenuyu ashikile kinahe, ubhutale ali ntale kiti nene?”

Imbiti yuyomba, “Litale kulebha ubhebhe. Umu yang’wililaga cheniki imbiti bhali bhaditogagwa nu muna shimba. Alinguno opejiwagwa aha nyama, kushisha alye mpaga wigute umuna Shimba.

Ishimba ikadubula bhoya bhoyo wamunhingo, winhwa umuna mbiti anchalile muna ng’hungulume akalibhone ilibhoya lyenilo. Imbiti ikalichala ng’hana ukolimuna ng’hungulume ukalibhona.

Nayo ing’hungulume ikadubula loya loha la ha ngongo winhwa umuna mbiti anchalile muna shimba. Shimba aho yalubhona uloya lwenulo ikakumya no.

Nang’hwe udubula hangi lulezu logwegela hihi na nomo gwakwe, ung’winha muna mbiti na kung’wila anchalile mna ng’hungulume. Ng’hungulume aho yulubhona ululezu lo mnashimba lidakumije.

Nayo ing’hungulume ikalwinja loya loyo lohankimbili ululihu gete (lutenga) winhwa umuna mbiti alutwale ukoli muna shimba. Ishimba aha yalibhona yogoha no yung’wila umuna mbiti, dingage henaha dupelage ng’wipolu wangu wangu.

Hangi imbiti yung’wila mna Shimba ilikungulume lyayombaga likwiza likubhone mulwe nalyo. Ishimba aha yigwa chene niyo hangi ogohaga yugang’wila mna mbiti, dingage wangu wangu henaha niyo dusamile ng’wipolu hagati, hangi ibhize kule gete. Kushisha lelo ishimba yasamila ng’wipolu idahayile kwegela muchalo hangi.
