Let's catch kappa

There was a man who was very poor.

One day, he went to a rich house and said:

"I found a good place to catch kappa.

But I need meat for bait.

It'll be so great if I can catch a kappa, so could you give me some meat? "

The rich man said that Kappa would bring big profit from selling

and gave lots of meat to the poor man.

"Show me where to catch kappa.",

Then the poor man said:

"Please hide behind the tree.

and don't say anything even a word.

Kappa will run away when it hears human voices. "

When arriving at the river, not being noticed by the rich man, the poor man secretly

hid the meat in his clothes.

And instead of meat, he put a stone on the fishing line and threw it into the river.

The rich man were silently waiting and watching from the back of the tree, but after an hour, he was really impatient

and said to the poor man:

"... can't catch anything yet?"

Then the poor man said:

"Oh no, Kappa has just eaten the bait

but because of your voice, it took the meat and ran away.

it's all over now."

When saying those words,

he also quickly cleaned up the fishing rod, left the meat in his clothes

and went back home.
