Description:Translation (by Maran Seng Pan) The story is about two ladies who lied to each other. Two ladies were close friends. They were farmers of shifting cultivation. It was time for them to mow grass and a friend said, "Mate, we seriously need to mow the grass. Let's sleep here tonight!" They two agreed to sleep in their small house in shifting farm that night. When it was getting dark, one mate lighted a campfire and was waiting for another. Since it had been a long time waiting for her friend, she shouted, "Mate! It's getting dark. You should hurry. I am waiting for you." Even though that friend was being called, she went back home alone. But a Lep (a cruel kind of mythical ogresses inhabiting the wilderness, much feared in some localities) heard it and replied her, "All right! I am about to come. Is there anything I need to bring?" She thought it was her friend. So, she answered, "Yes. Please fetch a pail of water!" The Lep responded nicely. While she was waiting for her friend, the Lep which maked itself like a woman was coming to her by carrying a Bamboo water bottle with her hair. As that Lep got closer to her, she realized it was not her friend. She was shocked and afraid of it. At the same time, she fearfully considered how to save her life from that Lep. Suddenly, she remembered that she was wearing so many small rumble bells on her belt. And she took off them and put them into the campfire. Even though the woman was afraid, she prepared dinner and had together with the Lep. After having dinner, there was a lot of food left. So, the woman told the Lep, "Mate, we've still left so much food. Go downstair and open your mouth there. I will plunk down all the food from here." As the Lep opened her mouth in downstair, she threw the heated rumble bells and water into her mouth. The Lep cried out loudly in pain and ran away to the stream. Since her mouth was burnt, she drunk all water from the stream. So, the woman decided to go back home because she would be surely killed if the Lep caught her that night. On the way back home, she requested everything she had been passing by like trees, stumps, stones, etc., not to tell the Lep that they had seen her. The Lep chased her instantly, just after drinking water and getting relief from the pain and it asked all the things if the woman had passed by. Except for the rice stone grinder, all the other things said they had not seen her. Since the woman forgot to tell the rice stone grinder which was near the entrance of her house, the rice grinder told the Lep that the woman just passed by. Therefore, the Lep entered the house and it saw so many people were sleeping together on the floor. It said, "I know cold and hot. The feet of the one who was outside should be cold. The feet of those who have been sleeping in blankets should be warm." The Lep went to touch the feet of the sleeping people to make sure who was the woman. "The woman who threw heated small bells into my mouth should be the one who is sleeping in the middle." Then, it took and ate her. Since a friend betrayed another, the one who was betrayed was eaten by the Lep.
