When we're alone, we'll catch three trouts, we'll leave one to eat tomorrow, we'll catch two, and we'll eat them all. And this is how children eat half. The father took his two daughters to pick berries. He put his hat and jacket on the stump and left. The sisters came to the broken house, a small child was sleeping in the cradle, they rocked it, and stayed overnight. Fresh fish at the doorstep in the morning. We decided to watch secretly. The child got up, went to the doorstep and began to take the fish out of the anus. The girls ran away, and the child turned into a healthy old man, chased them. On the other side of the river, grandmother and girls ask to stretch their legs. They ran over her legs like a bridge. Old lady: "You go faster, my little sister lives there. You'll go into the house." On the shore where the grandmother was sitting, the old child also asks to stretch his legs. She pulled it out, he began to cross, and when he came to the middle, the birds flew in and began to peck at the old woman's knees. The man fell into the water and said: Old lady, you can make a boat out of my back, an oar out of my hands, a pot from my head, a stern paddle out of my legs, and a kettle out of my testicles. I swam downstream. The girls came over. Old woman: "When the sun goes down, you will sit quietly, you will not talk or cough. I'll cover for you. My brothers are coming." Brothers enter the smoke hole: one eye in the middle of the forehead, arms in the middle of the chest, and a large mouth. They say it smells human. The old woman had a hard time convincing her that no one was there. In the morning, he gives the girls wings and tells them to fly high. The younger sister is flying higher and the older sister goes down. Someone grabbed her, pulls her, and the youngest is pulling her towards her. She tore off her top to her lower back, put it on her back and flew to good ground. I left it on a tree broken by thunder. She looked around and her sister was crying, she took her again. Found a tree broken by a bear. I looked around - half of my sister was smiling happy. The youngest flew to the house, the man shot, the wings fell off, the girl fell off. She agreed to marry, the house is rich. My husband went to see what happened to his older sister. There are two bears playing there. One has a front part from a person (like a person), and the back is from a bear. "Whoever has a human head must be his wife's sister." I went into the house and saw a girl at the door without a lower part, one back torn off. And a man sits in the middle of the place of honor. The house is full of wild deer meat and dried fat. "Take dried meat for your little sister," the girl suggests. The youngest's husband refuses gifts to the brothers, but agrees to tell his wife how her sister lives. Younger: I'm the one who tore half off and the devils ate half. Husband: Apparently, the bear connected the back of his sister to hers and she became like a bear. Their backs were bearish and the front parts were human. They saw me and ran to their house. When we entered our house, they became real people. I went to their house, she sat half by the door, and her husband was a young man, a real man. The youngest is afraid to visit the eldest. A few years later, the husband went back to his wife's younger sister. There is no one in the house, the fire is a little burning. The owners have returned - just human beings. My husband went hunting and never came back. His wife remembered him once saying that he would go overseas to look for people who killed his parents. He sailed to the island, put his spear into the seal, which left with his spear. It goes on top of the water, does not fall under water. He sees lots and lots of houses. A bald man came out of one: "What kind of person? Mergen manga or what?" {From this episode, the man's name is Manga}. A person carries a bunch of firewood. The manga lay in the middle of a tree split by thunderstorms. When the man started stepping over it, Manga squeezed him (killed) him. He put on his clothes and pretended to be a lumberjack worker. People: There'll be a wedding tomorrow. Many people came to marry the girl, all dressed in silk clothes. Healthy, tall. They try to move a stone the size of a deer, they try, they suffer, they can't. Manga's relative recognized him. The manga picked up a rock, threw it to a relative, who caught it and threw it back. He says that since they were little, the rock has grown. Whoever will pick it up is a good person. When the party was over, a relative married a neighbor's daughter and took him away, and Manga sailed in a boat to those who ate his parents and killed everyone. These people scooped water out of the bay, Manga home in shallow water, as if skiing, the proposed girl did not take the proposed girl. But when he got home, there were already two wives there, and he started living with them]: Sam et al. 2012:134-143.
