Apiyo started to sing with a clear voice, “It was not me, it was not me who took the teeth. The one who took is still behind.” Then Atieno sang the song. She also sang well.

Lastly, it was Ajoh’s turn. She was scared. She started singing. It sounded terrible and the words were wrong. Unyalego shouted, “Can’t you sing properly like the others?” Unyalego knew that Ajoh took his golden teeth.

Unyalego opened his huge jaws and swallowed Ajoh. Her sisters ran back to the village. They told everyone the story of what happened. “I warned her, if only she had listened,” the girls’ grandmother said sadly.
