Lushiku lumo Nzoka yeniyo yufumila hanze kudima, aliyo ulu ilihaya kudima, mpaga iliswe tame iliwe lyenilo. Ulu shiku lwenulo aho yalifa, gashi akanoni kali hihi haho, kulisola, kulala nalyo mpaga kuli nwani wago umunhu.

Hambunu aho kashika ho kung’wila giki, “Nwani wane nakutogilwe no, jiji ginhu nagwenhela jagukulang`hana mu bhupanga bhoko., Nulu mubhulamu bhoko. Aliyo nalikuwila giki bhiya ukujileka, ulu shiku lwene wajilekaga jigujimila, utalajibhona hangi mpaga gucha gwako.” Sha lushiku lumo, wayelaga ubhunwa kwibala, uhaya giki, “Kinu jane jeniji jisoga no natuganyaga najo.” Ujisweng’ha hakasaga. Aha alijisweng’ha kang`wilolelaga akanwani kiye akanoni.

Lili nalisolaga, aliyo utulipandika.” Kulala na kulala akanoni kuja. Wandya gukapelela atakapandikile. Munhu ng’Wenuyo akabiza na makoye no mpaga gucha gwakwe.
