WATI JARRA KURLU - A STORY ABOUT TWO MEN Audio book recorded and edited by Esau Japanangka Marshall Translation: There were two men who went to get some free-wood to make a fire to cook their tea, vegetables and meat. They cooked their food and then ate it. Night fell and the two men unrolled their swags and stoked the fire to keep the mosquitos away during the night. While they were sleeping, a bull came and saw them. Suddenly the bull got angry and charged at the two sleeping men. They woke up with a start and leapt to their feet in fright. They managed to frighten the bull with a stick and chased it away out of sight. The men then returned to their camp and went back to sleep. The next morning after breakfast, the men went looking for the bull. They saw him from where they were hiding in the scrub. The two men kept out of sight of the bull because they were still afraid of him even though he was sound asleep in a clearing. The men were hiding in the bushes. They finally decided to let the bull sleep and they crept away back to their camp where they stayed.
