Story: ≠nerru and her husband
≠nerru and her husband
A young man of the Early Race marries ≠nerru (also a person of the Early Race). They are out collecting 'Bushman rice' and fill their bag, so the husband asks |nerru to use her kaross. She does not want to and he snatches it away from her. ≠nerru's bowels come pouring down. She replaces her bowels and returns to her mother's house. Her husband comes along looking for his wife, but ≠nerru's mother is angry with him for his lack of understanding.
