…A fatty woman from a neighboring village… Don’t you remember her? She has got a daughter named Houry.
I have got a daughter, a modest, charming girl. She is working all day long. She cooks and bakes and sews. In short, she is as good as gold.
Keep on praising, don’t we know who she is? Just eats and sleeps all day long. How will you marry her off?
The one marries her, will not be sorry.
Poor man, who marries her. She is a total disaster.
So she marries a young man, who believes she is good at house work. But she has no wish to do anything.
One day her husband goes to work and gives cotton to comb and spin.
Now, my sweet Houry, I am off to work.
Now Houry has cotton in front of her, but doesn’t know what to do.
-What can I do? I will throw it under the black rock.
She throws the cotton into the water and says to the frogs:
Now, comb and spin. I will come in few days, we will sell it and get rich.
In few days she goes for the cotton. She can’t find the cotton anywhere. Suddenly she finds gold in the water. She takes the gold and goes home. Her husband gathers everybody to show how happy he is. Houry’s mother knows what’s the matter and starts to talk to a fly:
Welcome, welcome my dear aunt! My son-in-low will not judge me for your poor look.
Are you ok? Why are you calling this fly an aunt?
Oh, my son, this is my aunt. She used to work all day long. Now she is a fly.
She begins to cry.
Oh, don’t cry, I will not let my Houry work. As long as I live, she will not do anything. She will live like a queen.
