Hooler suddenly wanted to sing aloud while eating sugarcane. Grunty told him, "Don't do so, or the farmers of this field would come and beat me because I have not finished eating yet!" 

But Hooler didn't stop shouting. The farmer heard him and came. He began beating Grunty, just as he had thought. 

When Grunty ran to the bank of the river, Hooler pretended that he was feeling sorry for him. 

Grunty decided to teach him a lesson. When they were going back, he said, I want to lie down in the water!" Hooler got scared, but Grunty lay down in the river, and Hooler drowned.
