  3. Onetime some men came into a house at night and the people were in bed. They went looking for spring water but there was none in it.They asked whether it was the fault of the woman or her two daughter. Some of them said it was the two girls. They said that they would have to get enough of blood when they could not get any water. They liked the two girls and the man was listening to all that was going on. The woman was angry in the morning when the girls was not up and the man told her to head there alone.
