Legends

_____________________________[Once upon a time] there were _____________________________[two men] out hunting for _____________________________[food]. They couldn't kill anything _____________________________[right away] and they became _____________________________[very hungry]. Then _____________________________[one of them] happened to see a _____________________________[chicken] and shot it with his _____________________________[bow] and _____________________________[arrow].

They built a _____________________________[fire] and _____________________________[cooked] the chicken on a _____________________________[stick]. The _____________________________[man] who had _____________________________[killed] the chicken didn't want to share it with his _____________________________[partner], so they decided to have a _____________________________[contest] to see _____________________________[who] would get the _____________________________[chicken]. They agreed that whoever had the most unusual _____________________________[dream] would get the _____________________________[chicken] all to himself.

When they were ready for _____________________________[bed], _____________________________[one of them] decided to _____________________________[wait] for the _____________________________[other] to _____________________________[sleep]. When he heard him _____________________________[snoring], he got up _____________________________[slowly] so as to not _____________________________[make a noise] and _____________________________[ate] all the chicken.

_____________________________[In the morning] when they got up, the _____________________________[man] who had _____________________________[slept] told his _____________________________[partner] what he had _____________________________[dreamt]. He had dreamt that he was on a _____________________________[stairway] to _____________________________[heaven] and had seen his _____________________________[grandfather] coming to _____________________________[meet] him. When he asked his partner what he had dreamt, his _____________________________[partner] said, "I _____________________________[believe] you because _____________________________[I saw you] on your way up so I thought to _____________________________[myself] - since he won't be down here for _____________________________[awhile], I might as well eat the chicken by myself."
