Ngun Cer cu a thutnak in a vun dir, a dang nu pahnih zong an dir ve. Pa pakhat mic i put pah in a ra i Ngun Cer cu amahte in theihternak tuah a van fial. Ningzak nawn khin mic cu aa tlaih i, a min le a ratnak khua a chim cuahmah lioah a mitthli a tla thluahmah than i zeihmanh a peh kho ti lo.

“Kha ni kha, Macau ah keimah ka miphun hawile ka hmuh tik hna ah kaa lawm tuk i ka lung a hno. Cucaah, zei bia hmanh chim kho ti lo in ka lunglawmhnak mitthli nih a ka ciah.”

Thla khat ah voikhat hmanh a chuak bal lomi, voi khat, voi hnih, a chuakmi tiin kan um hna tikah, zeitik kan i ton than te ding kan chim kho hna lo. Kan chuah duh caan ah kan umnak inn ngeitu nih an kan sianh lo caan zong a um theo tawn.”

Ngun Cer cu biakinn a kal dih cun zanlei muilai hrawng ah inn lei ah a kir. Thla li chung hlawh lo tein a um hnu, atu thla li hnu i a riantuan mi hlawh innlei a kuat khawh cang ding kong a ruah ah aa lawm tuk cang. Tuzan cu ka chungle ka chimh hna lai ti lawng a thinlung ah a khat.
