They played together. They ate together. They did everything together.
Crocodile went to the nyabezi. "If you want to get better, you have to eat baboon meat," said the nyabenzi.
If he wanted to get better, he had no choice than to eat his friend the baboon.
Crocodile took Baboon out to the deepest part of the river.
Crocodile said, "The nyabezi told me that if I want to get better I must eat you, my friend."
Wait a minute and I'll call my grandfather. He's bigger than me. Eat him and you'll be full."
Baboon replied, "He's in the tree on that island."
Crocodile said, "Go and get him so that I may eat him."
Crocodile waited and waited. But Baboon did not return.
And that was the end of their friendship.
