CS cuenta el cuento de una mujer pobre y sus siete hijos. Es el mismo cuento que "bueno y malo" de DC-N121215S-3.
CS tells a story about a poor woman and her seven sons. When an old, poor man passes by, she invites him to come to have lunch later. However, he never shows up and the woman gives his portion of the food to a stray dog. Later that day, the man comes back and tells the woman to clean her house, build a henhouse and go to another place to spend the night. The next day, she finds her house filled with gifts. Her jealous rich sister wants to do the same, but she does not feed the stray dog when he comes by and she does not go to another place to spend the night. Instead of getting loaded with gifts, snakes come to suck her blood and she dies.
CS cuenta el cuento de una mujer pobre y sus siete hijos. Cuando un hombre, viejo y pobre, pasa por su casa, le invita a comer, pero el hombre no vuelve para el almuerzo. La comida que apart� para el viejo le da a un perro, feo y sucio por tenerlo l�stima. M�s tarde, el viejo vuelve y le manda a barrer su casa, construir un gallinero y ir a dormir en otro lado. Al d�a siguiente, el gallinero est� lleno de gallinas y su casa est� lleno de regalos. Su hermana, que es rica y envidiosa, quiere obtener lo mismo, pero no le da de comer al perro ni va a dormir en otro lado. En la noche vienen las viboras que la chupan la sangre y la hermana rica se muere.
