Description:This story is about two orphans raised by their uncle. The uncle loved them dearly, but their aunt--the wife of the uncle--hated them very much. Raising the orphans in the family made the life of the uncle miserable as he had to quarrel with his wife almost everyday. The uncle decided to take the children to the forest and left them there. The children were taken care of by an old man, and were given a (magic) potion. They grew up to be a handsome man and beautiful woman, who then married each other. When they returned to the village, their marriage was regared as a sin, and were punished by death because of it. Because of the potion, they could not be killed and this led to the realisation by the people that one could/should not take somebody's life. Instead of the death penalty, they were asked to perform a ritual.
Cerita ini mengisahkan dua anak yatim-piatu yang diasuh oleh pamannya. Pamannya sangat menyayangi mereka, tetapi bibinya, istri dari pamannya, sangat membenci mereka. Kebidupan pamannya menjadi tidak tentram sejak mengajak keponankannya itu, karena pamannya itu dan istrinya bertengkar hampir setiap hari.

Tetapi karena kekeuatan majik yang dibawa, mereka tidak bisa dibunuh walaun sudah dipakai berbagai cara oleh orang di kampung. AKhirnya orang menyadari bahwa hidup mati orang tidak boleh ditentukan manusia. Mereka selanjutnya dihukum dengan kewajiban mengadakan upacara.
