While Mbok Srintil was daydreaming a smell and dirty giant was in front of her.Mbok Srintil couldn’t stand up.She was too afraid and nervous. She thought her soul would go on. “I’m really hungry now.Where’s your children?

Then the giant gave a small bag of cucumber seeds.”Grow them,they will grow to cucumbers.One of the cucumbers will have a gold cucumber.If the gold cucumber is ripe,the plant will appear a baby.Bring her up and give enough food! So the baby will become a healthy child.After she is 6 years old.I will come and take her to become my food and so she’ll be a delicious food,won’t she? UNDERSTAND! Hahaha….” The giant said. Mbok Srintil kept the seeds.”NOW GO!”The giant shouted. “O..okay I..I will go” Mbok Srintil said..
