Once there was a boy called Hatupatu.
One day Hatupatu went for a walk in the forest.
Hatupatu found a cave so he went in it.
When he got in it he relised it was the Bird Woman's cave.
So he tried to get out but he was caught in a trap.
When the Bird Women came home she went to the trap to see if anything got caught in it.
When she got there she saw Hatupatu and asked him ,” Well well well !What brings you here Hatupatu ?”
“ I was walking in the forest and I found this cave I decided to have a look in it then I realished it was your cave so I tried to get out but I couldn't. “
“That’s because you got stuck in my trap, I know.” she answered.
“Then why didn’t you mention it?”he muttered.
“Because you butted in.” she replied.
“Ok lets just settle down. You’re going to be my dinner.” she snarled
“Can you just let me out ? “ he cried.
“No ….. because you’re my dinner.”
So Hatupatu thought and thought until he came up with a plan.
His plan was to spilt one of the bars with this tool he had found.
So he picked up the tool and split one of the bars and escaped.
