Description:English translation (by Rita Seng Mai) Long long ago, there was a boy called Brang Li who lived in a village. He was very poor. He had a cousin sister. His sister got married and the couple lived together with Brang Li in the same house. His sister sold vegetables in the market and they made some money. But he was still very poor. And he went to the forest to gather some firewood everyday. One day, he saw a big pit on the way. There was a big rock on that big pit and he was so wondering. Then, he went to move that big rock because he was curious about that. He was surprised that there was lots of gold under the rock. He put those pieces of gold into the cane basket and took them to his home. He dug some holes and buried some gold under the ground when he got home. And he also kept some with him. And then, he usually borrowed a pair of scales from his sister. His sister doubted him why he borrowed that pair of scales all the time. Then, his sister applied some butter on the edge of the scales' plates. When Brang Li gave them back after he had done weighing, she saw some small pieces of gold on them. She went to ask him where and how he got those pieces of gold. Then, her brother answered. He answered that I got them from that pit in the forest. His sister got jealous and she wanted to be rich too. Then, she said to her husband. "My brother said he got lots of gold from that pit in the forest. You go get some too", she said to her husband. Then, her husband went there alone. He looked at the gold with greedy eyes when he saw those. At that time, a group of robbers and thieves came there and they saw that the cover of the gold was opening. Then, they caught the person who was stealing their gold and their leader ordered them to kill him. Brang Li's brother-in-law was killed by the robbers. But his sister didn't know that her husband was dead and she kept waiting for him. One day, she went to the river to carry some drinking water, then she saw her husband's corpse floating in the river. She saw lots of stabbed wounds on her husband's body. Then, she held a funeral for her husband. And the robbers heard that there was a funeral in the village and they thought it would be the funeral of the one they killed. They also thought there might be one more person who stole their gold and they went around the village to get more information about that. While the robbers were going around the village to know more, they learnt that it was a house that belonged to Brang Li. They deduced that he would be the other one who stole their gold. Then, they left a mark in front of Brang Li's house. The robbers went back after they had marked. They planned to kill Brang Li at night. At that moment, a woman who worked as a cleaner at Brang Li's house saw that mark while she was doing the cleaning. She thought that there were no marks on the other houses but only on this house, so it wouldn't be usual. That's why she left marks on each and every houses in the village. The robbers told to their leader that they made a mark in front of that house. Then, their leader told them if that is not true, he would kill both of them. At night, they came to find the house where they left a mark and planned to kill Brang Li. But they were shocked that there were signs on every houses. Then their leader killed both of the robbers and they kept finding the house of Brang Li. After some time, they got to know where Brang Li lived. Then, the leader of the robbers went to Brang Li's house as a guest at night. When their leader entered the house, one of his fellows went to the kitchen to hide inside the big glazed jar. While he was hiding, the woman servant entered the kitchen. She was going to prepare a meal to treat the guest. Then, one of the robbers inside the big glazed jar asked "Is it the right time to kill him?" Then, the servant knew it was a robber and answered, "No, it's not the right time yet. Just wait there." Then she went to buy some gasoline to light some fire. She simmered and boiled some water and poured them into that big glazed jar. The robber inside the jar died because of the heat. In the morning, their leader came into the kitchen and saw that his pal was dead. So he was scared and ran away from there. "There was a robber who came to kill you last night. But I killed them," said the servant to her master, Brang Li. "You're wiser and cleverer than me. I'll give you half of my properties. Take them," said Brang Li. He also gave half of his land to her for saving his life. Later, they two lived together happily.
