    There lived an old man with an old woman, an old man with an old woman. Both of them were old, as old as each other, they had nobody. The old man thought: “If I were to go out to a place a bit higher, where fire-wood is found, (Behind their house there was a clearing) to the clearing. I’ll check what kind of animals go there, the traces of which animals are there.” He put on his skis and went out of the house up to the clearing. Along the edge of the clearing, along the edge of the forest he skied, his skis went this way and that. What was he up to? He went along the ski path, rushed on further. Sooner or later he reached a sort of a wooden house. It was apparently the house of a hunter. He went into the house, nobody was there, an empty house. Inside the house everything was hung over with skins: sables, animals. Whatever kinds of animal skins there are, it was full of them.

    Fine. He waited, he sat there, he went out and came back in. All of a sudden he heard something. From outside one could hear a man coming on skis. A young man entered the house. His belt was hung with animals, he had killed so many. “Oh, grandfather,” he said. “You’ve come, greetings!” “Greetings.” They greeted each other, had something to eat and the hunter skinned his animals and hung up their skins. They ate and drank. He lay down. The old man pretended to sleep. He thought: “He killed animals all day long, he was hunting, he has fallen asleep and is snoring.” The old man thought: “If I were to kill this young hunter, these animal skins would remain for me. I would take them home to my wife. I will bring so many skins, my wife will have good words for me.”

    Fine. He got up, stretched, got up and cut the sleeping man’s throat through. The young hunter died. He said: “I killed him, but who will come? I’ll lie down to sleep. Tomorrow morning I’ll go home.” Then he lay down, slept for a long or a short time, in the morning he heard someone waking him: “Grandfather, get up, get up! We’ll have some tea.” He lifted himself a bit, put out his face, opened his eyes and the slain man had come to life again. His grandson woke him up to drink tea. Oh, how horrible, what should one do? He was mocking him back and forth. They drank the tea. “You then, grandfather, cut fire-wood, melt water, so that all is ready when I come.” What? So it was. The hunter wen the tea. “You then, grandfather, cut fire-wood, melt water, so that all is ready when I come.” What? So it was. The hunter went off hunting. He went for a long or a short time, he went all day long. He went all day long, towards evening one could hear him coming. The other had cut fire-wood and melted water from snow.

    The young man arrived, entered the house. He had killed even more than the day before, whatever animals there are, sable, squirrel. They ate and drank. He skinned the animals and hung them up to dry. So, what happened? Night fell, once again it was time to sleep. The old man did not fall asleep, he kept on thinking: “My hunter has fallen asleep, he’s weary, all day long he hunted. He’s asleep and snoring.” The old man thought: “Yesterday I cut his throat. If I chop him off at the shoulder, where the heart is, from the heart, he won’t ever come back to life.” Then he got his axe ready and from the side where the heart is he cut the sleeping youth, the young hunter in two. Afterwards he thought: “If I bring home so many skins, my wife will kiss me.” That is what the old man thought.

    Fine. He lay down. The old man fell asleep. Then in the morning the young hunter woke him: “Grandfather, get up, we’ll have tea.” Oh, how shameful, he put out his face and the other was alive again, he had no scar at all. He was completely whole again. They drank tea. “You then, grandfather, prepare fire-wood and water. I, in turn,” he said, “will go hunting again.” So he set off, let him go, he went the whole day. He left in the morning and returned in the evening when it was getting dark. The other had prepared firewood and melted water. Everything was ready by the time the grandson came back. Towards evening he came back for the third time. He was carrying even more than the day before. He had killed animals, was carrying so much. They were hanging from his belt, it was all full. He carried them on his shoulders, however many animals there were–sable, squirrel. Once again they ate, drank, and the young man skinned the animals and hung them up to dry. Once again they went to bed.

    They lay down, but the old man could not go to sleep. He stood next to the sleeping young man, sharpened his axe really well, stood, took the sleeping youth, the young hunter and cut him up to tiny bits, only little pieces remained. He took him and into the fire, the fire was lit, he kicked his flesh into the fire. “Yesterday you came alive, come alive again now. I have killed you. Now you,” he said, “will not rise from the fire.” Well, fine. The old man lay down. He lay for a long time, for a short time, he fell asleep again. All of a sudden, his grandson was waking him: “Grandfather, get up, get up. We’ll drink tea.” The grandson was waking him, he had come back to life again. He was completely whole, nothing showed that he had been kicked into the fire, his work was for nothing.

    Well, fine. That means they got dressed and the grandson said: “I won’t be going to hunt any more. I’m going home. Help me to drag the skins outside.” Oh, he helped. They loaded the sled with the skins. They loaded it up to the top, he had gathered so many skins. “So, grandfather, sit on top of my skins. I’ll give you a ride.” He sat down. He sat on the top of the sled with the skins and the young man put the straps of the small sled on his shoulders, put on his skis, started pulling, the runners of the small sled with the skins knocked along on the uneven ground. They went up along the ground at a place without tussocks. That is how he led. The old man could hear only the whistling of the wind on both sides. That is how he led. The old man could hear only the whistling of the wind on both sides of his cheeks from the face and hair down. That is how hard the grandson was pulling. Suddenly they arrived at a clearing. Some sort of a house stood on one leg, it was rotating, it was humming. It was humming like a spinning top. They came up to it, the house stood still and a door appeared.

    Then the young hunter-grandson entered the house. He went in, too, and stood in the doorway. In the house some sort of woman was sitting, an old woman. She was sitting between nests of sable, nests of skins. “Husband,” she said, “have you come?” “Yes, I have come,” he said. He listened, the old man was standing in the doorway. “Husband,” asked the woman, “husband, I can see a wound on your neck. It must be the work of the grandfather.” Again she asked: “Husband, I see that your shoulder on the heart side is cut and sliced right through and there is a wound. This must also be the work of the grandfather. Husband, I see you were all in pieces, your flesh was all in little pieces, your flesh was burnt by fire.” “That, too,” he said, “was the work of the grandfather.” The woman threw a glance in the direction of the old man. The old man collapsed on the spot where he stood. Whether he went below earth, whether he went below water, up to now nothing has been heard of him, for so long.
