Description:The speaker tells a story about Vampire Bat, which she wrote and is reading aloud from. The plot enters around two Caquintes who have a set of beautiful daughters who they serially marry off to Vampire Bat (in his human form), despite the fact that secretly murders each one. He blames each murder on a mysterious, swampy lake named Tsonkamonki, which his wives should have heeded is advice to avoid, and which, he says, consumes them. Later his brother-in-law accompanies one of his wives to live with him and together they discover the truth, returning Vampire Bat to their father, who kills him. However, when the brother-in-law attempts to put Vampire Bat's dead body in a clay pot, he transforms into a bat and flies away.
