"She is surprised - why do people, tress, water and everything else run away from her? When she was in the water unseen, she saw people jumping around happily, young women dancing, everyone in a happy mood. But when she came out of the water to try to share their happiness and laughter, they started running away; trees fell, some were uprooted, there were cries all over, and some people even died. And when she looked up, she saw some of the people's houses and roofs flying; they were coming to her as if they were appealing to her or saying: save us!"
"That is why she has a smiling face, because she was saying "why do all people run away from me, I only mean good and I don't want to harm anybody".
