Description:Translation (by Rita Seng Mai) The title of this story is "The one who doesn't keep promise". This is about one girl who didn't keep promises, said goodbyes to her parents. A long time ago, there were one girl and one boy who loved each other so much in a village. They were neighbours. They usually played on the natural large flagstone in the forest. There was a stream under that large flagstone. It had already been 3 or 4 years that they had been playing there. They played there first no matter how many times their parents called them to come back home. After they had played, they went back home. Then, their parents told them, "It isn't good that you didn't do any works and you played there all the time! There is an evil spirit in that place. If you two want to talk and play, just play inside the house." They said Ok but they kept going there. One day, they saw that there was a door on that large flagstone where they usually played. When they saw that door, they told to each other to go in first. The boy said the girl to go in first and vice versa. At last, the girl said she would go in first. Then, the door was close automatically after she came in. When that stone door was close, that boy cried every day. He usually played flute, played brass gong and sang sad songs there. He did many other things because he missed the girl. He was sorrowful and he didn't eat meal regularly. Finally, he died because he pined away. The water in the stream under that large flagstone where they usually played kept rising and it was knee-deep. The girl's mother thought why they didn't come back home and it had already been a long time. So she went there to find them without knowing the boy had already died. When she arrived there, her daughter standing in the middle of the stream said to her, "Mom, don't come here. It's not good for you to come here. By the way, was the jasmine flowers from our compound blooming yet?" Her mother replied to her, "It's about to bloom. There are some buds. I will take them when they are blooming." Whenever her mom came, she said that the water was knee-deep or thigh-deep or waist-deep and so on. She kept saying different things whenever her mom came. She said to her mom, "Mom, the water is now chest-deep" or "Mom, it's now neck-deep!" Then, her mother thought that her daughter had had pain and suffering. And when her mother came, the water became very hot. Her mother brought cooked rice and curry to her daughter every day. But she didn't eat those. Then, one day, the jasmine flowers were blooming so her mother brought them to her. She asked, "Mom, can you wear that flower on my head please?" Her mother wore it on her daughter's hairknot. At that time, that girl immediately became a female dragon with big horns and went to downstream. So, her mother said that it was her daughter who didn't keep promises.
