THE WOMAN WHO LOVED ONE CHILD AND NOT THE OTHER.

There once was a woman who liked one child and not the other. Anytime she bought food, she gave the food to the child she liked, but did not give food to the other child she disliked. The one she liked was called Lapelga and the one she disliked was called Aladi. Aladi always hid in her corner.

Whenever the woman went to buy food, she sang a song for her daughter to unlock her door, come out, and eat.

Lapelga come out and get some food to eat

Kakabaka (words of praise) come out and get some food to eat

Lapelga come out and get some food to eat

This song was a sign to Lapelga that her mum was calling her, and after she sang this song, Lapelga came out to eat. But Aladi always stayed quietly in the room.One day, a wolf came and tried to lure Lapelga out to eat. He sang the same song that Lapelga’s mum usually sang, but his voice sounded very hoarse.

Lapelga did not come out to eat the food because she knew that this hoarse voice was not her mother. Thus, the cunning wolf, unhappy because he was not able to deceive Lapelga in coming out, decided to polish his voice. After he polished his voice, he returned and sang the same song again. This time it sounded sweet like Lapelga’s mum’s voice. Thus, Lapelga was deceived by the wolf and came out eagerly, thinking it was her mum with her daily food.
