Grandmother's request

Once upon a time there was a big graveyard.

There were many dead people's souls sleeping here, and all the souls wanted to relive again.

One day, one grandmother died and was taken to this graveyard.

However, she didn't want to go into the forever sleep like that.

"Ah, I want to live, I want to live."

Granmother said that, and she tried remove the soil and took her upper body out of the ground.

However, because it was very cold outside, grandmother, with the upper body out,

shivered. "Oh, cold, cold."

Then there was a boy passing by.

Grandmother said to the boy.

"Little boy. You're a good boy, can you please bring me fire here

to warm my cold body, if my body gets warm

I can get out of here,

and if I get out of here I can come alive."

But the boy shook his head.

"Little boy, please bring me fire, please."

No matter how many times she asked, the boy just shook his head frightenedly.

"Oh, it is so cold, it will be better for me to stay in the ground." She thought.

Grandmother, who couldn't help the cold anymore, had no way but went into the grave again.

And from that, she never came out again.
