Rahtea

Once upon a time, Rahtea's stepmother was very cruel to him. She forced him to do the toughest chores in the house and gave him the smallest amount of food possible. He was also dressed in rags. In addition to this the woman gave him no time for leisure. In spite of that she planned to kill him.

One day she was crying as if she had a great pain in her stomach. Her husband offered fowls and pigs to the angry spirits to appease them, but she continued howling with pain of her own imagination.
She said : 'Animal sacrifice won't do.' 'Then what shall I do?' 'Human sacrifice! Cut Rahtea's throat and let his blood flow on the altar.'

Rahtea heard what his father and stepmother were talking. He fled into the forest. His stepmother set his brother to bring him back with a promise to celebrate the most enjoyable festival of Khuangchawi in honour of his coming back. His brother found him sitting under a Thingsiri tree which has flowers with full sweet juice.
He said in verse :
Come back with me, Rahtea,
The Khuangchawi shall be celebrated in your honour
Rahtea replied in verse too :
Go back without me, brother dear, I now have as food the good Thingsiri flower.
Only now can I eat all I want,
And be happy with a full stomach.

The stepmother sent his aunt to bring him back home. She failed too.

At las the stepmother herself came and persuaded him to comeback. He replied that there was no love lost between the two of them and suddenly the boy turned into a dragon fly and flew away.
