The old woman walked along the dry riverbank while the old man waded through the river. He held a bundle of lighted coconut leaves firmly in his left hand, lighting his way as he went, and a spear in his right hand. Soon he saw a large eel swimming toward him. The man tried to catch the eel but the eel escaped from him and swam away very fast. The man ran after the eel, chasing it as it was trying to swim away from him. The chase went on for a while, but the man was catching up fast on the eel with every step he took. Just as he was about to spear the eel, the eel ran into a hole to hide.
