ONCE THERE WERE three orphans who lived in a small house that had a garden, because they had no rice fields and no one to hunt for them, each night they would lay sharp shells and sticks across their garden path. In this way, they would catch an occasional wild boar for food.

But though they would manage to trap a wily animal in their front yard from time to time, it would always be eaten by the vultures or other wild animals because they had no fire on which to roast themeat. Only the giantess, Bekat, had fire.

The children were thin and hungry. One day they could stand it no longer. They had just caught a large boar in their garden, and now they decided to ask Bekat for fire.

―Bekat, Bekat,” the children called in giantess’ garden.

The giantess came out of her house. She was larger than a house, and the children trembled but tried not to show it. ―What do you want?” asked the giantess. When she spoke, the children could see her sharp teeth.

―We have come to ask for fire,‖ replied the children.

―That is easy to have,” said the giantess wickedly. ―But you must give me a hog in exchange for it.”

The children looked at each other in dismay. One whispered, ―How is

that? If we get the fire and give her the boar, we will be as hungry we

were before!”

―I have a plan,” whispered his sister.” Let us pretend to leave.”

―Yes,” said the third child, ―then let us follow her into her house and

steal fire when she is not looking.

So the children pretended to look sad. ―We have no hog,‖ they told the


―Then you cannot have fire!‖ bellowed Bekat.

The giantess stomped back into her house. The children crept along its walls and peered into the house of Bekat. There she was in the corner, taking the tangles out of her matted hair. In the middle of the room was a small fire. The children tiptoed in, walking in the shadows. Then they grabbed a burning twig and ran home as fast as they could, taking care not to put out the fire.

The children joyfully cut up the wild boar’s meat and roasted it over

their fire. However, Bekat smelled their cooking and followed the

smoke to the children’s house.

―Ah ha!” she exclaimed. ―You took fire from me! You must give me part of what you have to eat, or I shall roast you on my fire!”

The children let her sit with them. Bekat took their food baskets and took charge of dividing the meat. The bones and tough parts she

dropped into the children’s baskets, and the fat and slices she kept

for herself.

The children looked at each other. Then, one of them said, ―Let us

swim in the river before we eat. Can you dive well?” he asked Bekat.―We can dive very well,” he continued boastfully.

Bekat followed them to the river. The children dived into the water

first; then they surfaced and said, ―Your turn, Bekat. Do you know how?”

Bekat dived; she had a difficult time coming up because she was so heavy. While she was still in the water, the children raced back to the

house. They emptied Bekat’s food basket and put the meat into theirs. They poured large stones into Bekat’s basket and then they h

id on a branch of a tree growing near the river.

Bekat came out of the water and called the children. There was no answer, so she resumed to their house. She did not see them there either, so she picked up her food basket and went home. When she opened it to eat the boar meat, she set up aa great howl. The children had tricked her! She stomped through the forest, breaking young trees and kicking up bushes in her fury.

Coming to the river, she saw the children’s reflections in the water;

they had not moved from their hiding place on the tree. Bekat thought the children were hiding in the water. She dived but could not find them there. when she came out, she looked up and saw where they

were. The children screamed. ―Oh, Kabunian,” they prayed, ―Save usnow!”

The giantess laughed an evil laugh. She took an axe out of her pocket

and began to hick at the tree. ―Oh, Kabunian,” prayed the children again, ―Let her not hit the tree; Let her hit her knee instead.” The

giantess suddenly gave a great yelp. She had cut off her leg at the knee so she fell over backward and died. That was the end of the giantess Bekat.
