Their mother told them that they would not leave her , and they listened to her because they were obedient children .
It was almost noon when they are faced with a tall man .
He stood in a clearing , dressed all in black , as a nobleman . He was surrounded by a large shadow, he had a lot of hands, they were long, as serpents and as sharp as swords. They writhed like worms , impaled on the hook. He did not say anything , but somehow made it clear that he wants.
Girls' mother tried not to listen, but could no longer resist the tall man , she could not disobey him because almost stopped breathing . She went into the clearing , her daughter followed her .
