They played and splashed and swam in the water.
They hurried back to the village.
"Please come back with me!" she begged her friends. But her friends said it was too late.
But, she got lost in the dark.
She walked quickly towards it and knocked at the door.
"I'm lost and I need a place to sleep," said Nozibele.
"Come in, or I'll bite you!" said the dog. Nozibele went in.
"Cook, or I'll bite you!" said the dog. Nozibele cooked some food for the dog.
"Make the bed, or I'll bite you!" the dog said. Nozibele made the bed.
Then one day the dog said, "Nozibele, today I have to visit some friends. Sweep the house, cook the food and wash my things before I come back."
She put one hair under the bed, one behind the door, and one in the kraal.
Then she ran home as fast as she could.
"I'm here, under the bed," said the first hair. "I'm here, behind the door," said the second hair. "I'm here, in the kraal," said the third hair.
The dog turned and ran away and has never been seen since.
