The Cruel Father
Narrated by Achan Okogn
Once there was a man who had a daughter. He said to her, "Please don't get married. Live me with me and look after me all your life."
Then she met a man from far away and secretly she fell in love with him. Everyone in the village knew she wasn't supposed to marry a local man, and that was why she found a man from far away. At last, she became pregnant.
When her father noticed, he said, "What happened? Didn't I tell you not to marry anyone? Now you are pregnant. Why did you do this?"
She said, "How did it happen that I was born? Do you want me to live and die without any descendants? I want to marry and have children of my own. Now I am pregnant and I have a husband. You can do what you like with me."
