Summary: A girl learns about a new region.
Ana: Nothing has been harvested today. Do I have to sell my land to the employer?
Ana: Hey you! Where have you been? You must have stolen a fish from the store! If that woman came and asked me to pay it, I will not let you eat for 3 days.
Ana: Huft.. Come here!
Ana: God, I thought you’d always be there for me. At a time like this, you leave me.
Ana: What? You do not agree with me? I’m the one who feeds you. He just sees us being miserable. Well, I’ll bet you. Tomorrow, if all my plants grow, I’ll give you a big fish! I promise. Well let’s go to sleep!
The sun rises.
Karmen: Ana! Ana!
Ana: Ah… It must be Karmen, she wants to collect the fish that you’ve stolen!
Ana: Um… Karmen, I was in the shower.
Karmen: You think I’m stupid? Your bathroom is located right outside your house.
Ana: Um… I was bathing my cat.
Karmen: That cat! Just get him out!
Ana: ….Good morning, Karmen!
Karmen: You definitely know why I’m here. Your cat stole 6 fish, that’ll be 200.000 rupiahs.
Ana: Well… as you can see, there’s nothing to harvest. So… If you’re willing to be more patient..
Karmen: What are you talking about! I came here because I saw that your plants have completely grown!
Ana: What? It’s impossible…
She steps outside the house and looks at her garden.
Ana: … This is unbelievable.
Karmen: Hurry up! Sell all your crops. I’ll see you at the shop! Bye
Ana: Y…yea I know but… am I dreaming?
Ana: Today is truly staggering. But also fun. No, no, it was creepy! You really came through. But… thank God.
Karmen: Ana! Ana! Open the door! Help me..
Ana: What else does she want now? WHAT?
Ana opens the door.
Karmen: Gill, He hasn’t come home, I’ve been looking to his friend’s house, but they told me that he had gone earlier!
Ana: What? I’ll help you find him. You do not have to panic.
Karmen: Help me…
While Karmen was looking for the boy, Ana went to the woods.
Ana: GILL! GILL! Where are you! That boy. GILL!!! It’s been an hour…
Gill: Ana! Ana! I’m here!
Ana: Gill? Where are you? Heyyy where have you been? People are looking for you! Mom is looking for you!
Gill: Come here…
Ana: Hey… What’s wrong?
Gill: Please help him.
Ana: Oh God. What is this?
Gill: Can you help him?
Ana: Maybe… But I didn’t bring a scissor. This trap is made of very strong rope. Why is this so hard?
Gill: I’ve tried opening it but failed.
Ana: Why don’t you just ask someone for help?
Gill: I’m afraid this dog would be taken by hunters. God, why are they so nasty?
Ana: That hunters from the village of Tutakhamun? They are unfriendly. Wait, it’s their trap. Moreover, if they come, how are you going to deal with them? You’re a coward. Right?
Gill: Shut up, now help me remove this.
Ana: You are trouble, kid.
Suddenly a group of people came.
Tutakhamun 1: Woi kai!
Ana: Oh no..
Tutakhamun 2: Wo keu wa wa ta mei mei ta kaw kaw maw maw
Ana: Do you understand him?
Ana: It looks like this will be a big problem! Um… can you speak English?
The Tutakhamun were silent. After that, one of them spoke to his friend
Tutakhamun 3: Nak mak nak kay mei Gogo.
Tutakhamun 1 and 4: Yey
Ana: Hey two people left.
Gill: Should we run away?
Ana: Then what about the dog?
Gill: Maybe they want to keep him.
Tutakhamun 3: WAAAI
Ana: Okay… stay cool!
Not long after came another Tutakhamun
Gogo: Ni cai ma?
Tutakhamun 3: Nei tai nao juk Yukai key.
Ana: Hello you must be Gogo?
Gogo: You must be from the cross village?
Gogo: What are you doing here?
Ana: I was looking for this kid.
Ana: …He hasn’t come home and his mother was worried. She asked me to look for him. Then I met him here, and see this. What is this? Did you do this?
Ana: Why did you do it? This animal should be protected.
Gogo: Because this animal is the one who will save our citizens.
Ana: What do you mean?
Gogo: I do not need to explain it to you. You better go.
Gill: Okay… Let’s go. Thank you, Sir!
At Gill’s home
Karmen: You little punk! You made me worry! Where have you been?
Karmen: Thank you very much, Ana. Are you thirsty? I’ll make you some tea.
Ana: Yes… Thank you
Karmen: Why do you look so sad?
Ana: I met them, The Tutakhamun.
Karmen: What? When looking for Gill?
Karmen: Well I’d love to see them. They rarely leave the house.
Ana: Why are you so eager to meet them? They are ruthless killers!
Karmen: You must see the dog trap.
Ana: How do you know it?
Karmen: Do not get it wrong. They will not eat the dog.
Ana: What do you mean?
Karmen: They will make the dog as their God. Funny, isn’t it?
Ana: What? Their God is a Dog?
Karmen: I do not understand, but it is so unique.
Ana: Unique? They are crazy. We should report this problem.
Karmen: Problems? What problem? I think we should not report it. We do not need to interfere with their activities. It is clear that the dog would be fine. They will protect him. The most important thing is that they believe that God exists. We have to respect them.
Karmen: Instead of taking care of someone else, it’s better if you take care of your garden! Now go home!
