By and by the Malaki felt sleepy while his hair was being combed; and he said to the Bia, "Do not wake me up." He fell asleep, and did not waken until the next day. Then he married the Bia Tuangun Katakia. After they had been married for three months, the Bia said to the Malaki, "The best man I know is the Manigthum. He was my first husband."

Tellamantez waited and wept and combed her hair. When he was completely wrung out and burned up, all but destroyed, her Juan always came back to her to be taken care of, once with an ugly knife wound in the neck, once with a finger missing from his right hand, but he played just as well with three fingers as he had with four.
