A bride imitating a cat

Once upon a time, there was an obdient girl living in a village on the mountain.

One day, people from the next village came

and wanted to find a girl who deserved to be a bride.

Then, the mother said to that girl:

"There is no second chance like this, my dear." and the girl listened carefully every words.

"OK let's see. When being a bride, just be good and obey like the cat that I've just adopted."

"I will, mommy. If just being like a cat, it's easy."

When the girl looked at the kitchen and saw a three-haired cat that had just been adopted

was dozing on the lid of the cookstove.

After that, the girl soon got married and came to live with her husband.

In the morning of the next day as a wife,

The bride quickly lighted fire on the cookstove

and started cooking.

Suddenly,

"Oh, I have to behave like a cat."

said the bride, then she stood on the lid of the cookstove and sat down.

And the grandmother came,

"I wish I could sleep more.."

said the grandmother with her eyes heavy with sleep.

Then, she saw the bride sitting on the lid of the cookstove.

"Oh! What are you doing in such place?"

When the grandmother was still so surprised, the girl rubbed her face with her hands and said:

"Meow, meow, meow"

although it was a lovely reply, because of that weird behaviour, she had to go back home.
