Description:The men of Kiviri, a village at the edge of Numanuma, go fishing at night. A sea spirit joins them and offers help to a man who does not have a partner. When the man caught a lobster and put it into the canoe, the spirit who sits at the back crunches the lobster. Later, the man realises that he has taken a demon on board and he tries to escape. The men stand up a bamboo pole and try to fool the demon by making him paddle further away. When the demon realises that he has been fooled, he chases the man. In the end the spirit changes into a small white insect that lives underground. Today, when you stand at this place at Numanuma, you cannot see the edge of the Teoboo-reef, because it extends up to the place where the demon disappeared underground.
