Description:Translation (Mike Tu Awng) The title of the story I am going to tell you is the history of an eagle. Long ago in a village, there were two men who were traders. When they were on a journey for trading, they got to a village. It was believed that there were lots of ghosts. When they were in the middle of a forest, it was getting dark before they got the village they planned to go. As it was getting dark, the younger man had a small dagger with him. When it was already dark, they made a fire with big logs as firewood as they were about to sleep. And, they were alseep. But in the middle of the night, there was a voice from the jungle. "E brother, are you asleep?" Every time, the dagger replied, "Not yet.". Then, the voice came another time, "Brother, are you asleep?" Again, the dagger said, "Not yet." When that happened, the young man lying beside became terrified. The whole night the voice kept coming and the young man was too frightened. The man sleeping beside him was a bit older than him. The older man was sound asleep due to their tiredness. He was even snoring. But the young man was unable to sleep because he was terrified, so he woke the older man up. He said, "E brother, wake up and listen. Someone is calling and the dagger we kept beside our pillow always replies to the voice." When the older man listened, the voice came again, "Brother, are you asleep?" Then, the dagger they kept beside them replied, "Not yet". The older man got angry and said, "Who are you? Why do you keep calling?" Then, he took the dagger and rubbed it with the firewood and said to his friend, "Now, you can go to sleep. Nothing will happen. If it comes again, I will kill it with this dagger." So, the older man went to sleep again. But the young man couldn't sleep as he was still terrified. And the voice came again, "E brother, are you asleep?" But this time there was silence. It was believed that even in the dagger, there was nat spirit. Not long after they went to sleep, there came a huge hairy ghost. It came close to the fire and said, "Let's toast some corn to eat." And it threw something in the fire. As it ate, the young man beside was so frightened that he couldn't sleep the whole night. After eating for some time, the ghost was full and it went back and disappeared. The next morning after the ghost had gone, the older man did not wake up till 9 or 10 o'clock. Then, the young man got up and said, "Brother, wake up, wake up, let's go home. Last night I couldn't sleep at all because there were so many noises." As he was talking, he took away the blanket that his older friend was using. Then, he saw that only skeleton remained. When he saw that skeleton, he ran away immediately. He said, "This older man is dead" as he ran. But the skeleton said, "Please wait for me, I am going to the village too. Don't leave me here." The young man replied, "No, you are dead. I am afraid of you. You stay behind." He ran as he was saying this. And, the skeleton behind him was also running after him closely. When the young man was getting near to the village, he thought of getting help from the village. So, he climbed up to the top of a tree. When he got to the top of tree, he could see the village but couldn't hear the sound because it was too far. He shouted, "Dear villagers, save me." The skeleton said, "I will come with you," and starting climbing the tree. The young man kicked it and it fell down with a sound "Gruk grik gruk grik". The young man continued, "Dear villagers, save me." He kept shouting but the villagers could not hear him because it was too far. The skeleton also followed him closely even though he kicked it down again and again. The saying of this is that when an eagle makes sound like 'moh', then there is a sound below like 'buk buk'. The sound 'buk buk' is the skeleton falling. That is the sound when the young man kicked the skeleton down to the ground. The young man who was asking help to the villagers became the eagle. This is the story. Transcription (Lu Awng) Ya ngai gaw galang manya na labau hkai dan na hku re nga le i gabaw gaw. Moi mare langai mi kaw la 2 shan 2 gaw hpaga ga hkawm ai da.
