M: Um shym la sngew thuh janai ïa ka jingpynwan dur shaphang kane, “ka dur jong u Mynsiem”. “Hynrei babu”, u la ong ha u Kynrad, “u briew u dei ban batai ha uta uba mane ïa ka dur dewbyrtha ka bymdei ka dur u Blei, bad ba, katba ki duwai puson ïa ka, ki dei ban don ka dur u Blei ba lah ban iohi ym ïa ka dur dewbyrtha. U briew um dei ban mane ïa ka dur dewbyrtha.”
Kynrad(u ktah mationg): “Kata ka long kawei na ki rukom jonglong jongphi ki nong-Kolkata–kiba ai jingkren bad kiba ai jingshai ïa kiwei pat: Ym don uwei ruh uba sngewthuh ba da kumno ban ioh jingshai. Phi dei uei ban hikai ïa kiwei pat?”.
Uta uba long u Kynrad jong ka pyrthei salonsar un hikai ïa kiwei. Tang ma U hi U hikai iangi, uta uba la pynlong ïa kane ka pyrthei-mariang, uba la pynlong ïa ka sngi bad u bnai, ïa ki briew bad ki mrad bad ïa baroh kiwei ki jingthaw, uba la pynioh ki lad ki lynti ba kin nehkin long, uba la kyrkhu ïa ki khun ki kti, ki kmie ki kpa bad ba lateh lakam ïa ki da ka jingieid ban pynheh-pynsan ïa ki. U Trai Kynrad u la leh bunbah kiwei kiwei pat-Un ym pyn-i ha ki briew ïa ka rukom ban mane ïa U? Lada ki donkam jinghikai, te, Un dei u Nonghikai. U long u Nongialam mynsiem jongngi.
“Tharai, lehse ka don kano kano ka jingbakla ha ka jingduwai ïa ka dur dewbyrtha, te u Blei um tip ba lyngba kata, U hi u pynpaw ialade? Un da sngewbha eh ïa kata ka jingmane blei ruh. Balei phin pynktha khlieh ialade shaphang kata? Kan jin da la bha eh ba phin pyrshang ban wad jingshai bad pynleit jingmut da lade hi.”
Ha kane ka kynti u M u la sngew ba ïa ka jingsngewkhyllew jong u la pynduh-pyndam syndon. Mynta te u la ong halade. Hooid, u la kren ïa ka jingshisha. Ka donkam aiu ïa nga ban hikai ïa kiwei pat? La nga la sngewthuh shaphang u Blei? La nga ieid shisha ïa U? “Ngam pat don kamra kaba biang ban thiah ialade, bad nga khot sngewbha ïa ki paralok ban ïa don bynta lang bad nga! Ngam pat tip ei ei shaphang u Blei, la katta ruh nga pyrshang ban hikai ïa kiwei. Katno ka long kaba lehrain! Haduh katno nga long uba bieit shisha. Kane kam dei ka kot hikai jingkhein ne ka kot jingiathuh khana pateng ne ka jingpule ïa ka jinghikai ktien bapher bapher, ïa kum kata lah ban hikai ïa kiwei. Em, ïa kane ka jinglong maia jong u Blei. Kaei kaba u nga ka wanpaw ha nga.”

U Kynrad: “Phi la kren ïa ka jingmane-blei ïa ka dur dewbyrtha. Lada dei ba ïa ka dur la shna na u dewbyrtha, ka donkam ïa kum kata ban mane-duwai ruh. U Blei da lade hi u la pyndonkam da bun ki rukom jingmane-duwai blei. U Uba long u Kynrad jong ka pyrthei salonsar u la pynbit-pynbiang ïa kine baroh ki rukom ban pyniadei kat kum ka jingkot bor ka pyrkhat briew ha la ka kyrdan-kyrdan jingsngewthuh bad jingshemphang.
“Ka Kmie ka st ki jyntah ba har rukom ban pyniahap kat kum ka jingdawa ka kpoh jong ki khun jong ka. Shu ong noh, ka don san ngut ki khun. Lada ka don dohkha ban shet kan shet bun rukom – kan shet dohkha pulaw, ka shet sdieh bad sdieh tyrkhong bad kumta ter ter ban pynbang bad pyniadei kat kum ka bor met jong ki.”
“Phi sngewthuh ïa kaei ba nga ong?”
M:(da kaba sngewrit): “Hooid babu, Da kumno, babu, ngi lah ban pynneh ïa la ki jingmut-jingpyrkhat ha u Blei?”
Kynrad: “Iai khot ïa ka kyrteng u Blei bad rwai iaroh ïa ka burom jong U bad ïa syllok bad ki kynja riewkhuid, bad teng teng leit jngoh ïa ki jaka kyntang bad ki riewkhuid. Ka jingmut kam lah ban neh ha u Blei lada ka ngam sngi bad miet ha ki kam pyrthei, ha ki kam bad jingkitkhlieh bakynja pyrthei, ka long kaba donkam eh mynta ban pynleit jingmut ha la marwei bad nangta ban pyrkhat tang shaphang u Blei. Ban pynneh la ka jingmut-jingpyrkhat ha u Blei ka lng kaba eh, ha kaba nyngkng, lymda u briew u iai pyshang ban puson-blei ha la marwei. Haba u dieng u dang lung, dei ban da ker sawdong jong u, lymda kumta, un shah bam ha ki blang ki masi”.
“Ban puson-blei, phi dei ban pynkyrpang ialade ne shong ha ka jaka kyndong ne ha khlaw. Bad phi dei ban pyniapher barabor ïa kaei kaba shisha bad ka bym shisha. Tang u Blei u long uba shisha, U jingpynlong ba neh pateng-la-pateng, baroh kiwei pat ki bymshisha, kaba mut ki bym iaineh. Da kaba pyniapher kumta, u briew u lah ban kynther pynkhuid lut ïa kiei kiei ki bym shisha na la ka jingmut-jingpyrkhat.”
M(da kaba sngewrit): “Kumno ngi dei ban im ha kane ka pyrta”
Kynrad: “Pyndep la ki kamram jongphi baroh, hynrei pynneh la ka jingmut-jingpyrkhat ha u Blei. Im, lang bad baroh-ka tnga bad ki khun, u kpa bad ka kmie- bad shakri ïa ki. To khein bad to niew ïa ki ba ki long kiba kordor haphi, hynrei to tip da la mynsiem baroh ba ki im namar jongphi.”
“Ka nongtreikam iing haiing uba riewspah ka pyndep la ki kam iing baroh, hynrei ka jingmut-jingpyrkhat jong ka ka leit jingmut thik tang ha la ka jong ka shnong ba ka shong ka sah. Ka ri ka sumar, ka pynheh-pynsan ïa ki khun u kynrad jong ka kumba dei la ki jong hi. Ka ju khot ïa ki wat kum, u Rama jongnga ne u Hari jongnga; Hynrei hapoh ka dohnud jong ka ka sngewthuh shai kdar ba kim long da lei lei ki jong ka.”
“Ka dkar ka jngi kylleng kylleng ha um. Hynrei phi lah ban mutdur hangno ka jingmut-jingpyrkhat jong ka ka don? Hangtei kin harud jong ka wah, haba don ki pylleng ba ka la kha. Pyndep la ki kamram ha pyrthei, hynrei bat triang la ka jingmut-jingpyrkhat ha u Blei.”
“Lada phi rung ha ka pyrthei nyngkong khlem da ioh jinghikai-ïa ka jingieid shaphang u Blei, phin ïa kynduh jingeh man la ka teng. Phin shah tyllep ha ki jingjynjar jong ka, ki jingpynkhuslai jong ka, ki jingpynsngewsih jong ka. Bad katba phi nang ngam shuh shuh ha kiei kiei kiba kynja pyrthei, katta phin nang shah teh bad kyrsum bad ki.”
“Nyngkong, kyllan da ka umphniang ïa la ki kti nangta sa ot ïa u sohphan, lym kumta ka thit kan dambit iaphi. Nyngkong pynioh ïa ka umphniang jingieid bakyntang bad nangta sa kner la ki kti ha ki kam jong ka pyrthei.”
“Hynrei u briew u dei ban pynkyrpang ialade khnang ban ioh ïa kane ka jingieid bakyntang. Ban ioh ïa ka makhon na ka dud phi dei ban pynlong doi ïa ka ha u khiew bakyrpang.
