Description:Summary: This is a story that comes from the Longgu people working at a local plantation after the war. The plantation was no longer there in 1989 and in 2012 the family of Lulua didn't remember this story. The story tells of a boy that goes to work for a white woman and gets paid with different things that are new to him. Each time he brings the thing home he spoils it because he doesn't know how to carry it home. For example he brings home a cat in a bucket of water and it drowns, he drags a bag of rice home and it splits because it is dragged along the ground, he brings home butter by carrying it in his hand and it melts. In the end he carries a horse home on his shoulder. The white woman is so impressed that she wants to marry him. His parents agree to his marriage. Lulua is the mother of Agnes Para. (She was not still alive in 2012.)
