Iyash spent that night
in the bush by himself and reflected on his travels and the people
that he met. The next morning he followed the road towards a hill
with patches of popular trees all around. Once on top of the hill
he looked down and saw smoke coming from a mudookwan. Slowly he
went down and came close to the lake where the mudookwan was standing.
There were rocks all around. There outside he saw several human
arms all hanging in a row. These were the arms of people who had
been killed by the person who lived in the mudookwan. The arms were
hanging right in the middle of the road. It was impossible to go
through the road without touching them. Iyash was trying to go through
by crawling underneath when he accidently touched and moved one
of the arms. This triggered all the other arms hanging to start
moving back and forth and create weird noises. Suddenly, Iyash saw
a big ferocious dog coming running out of the house. The dog was
heading straight for Iyash. Knowing that the dog will surely tear
him to pieces Iyash jumped into one of the foxholes under the rocks.
The dog followed Iyash barking ferociously. As he barked continuously
the dog began to talk.
"It is Iyash and he jumped
into one of the foxholes under that rock", the dog yelled barking
at the same time. The master of the dog came running to see what
was going on. He looked around but did not see anyone.
"Are you sure you saw
someone?" the master asked his dog.
"Yes, he is under there,"
the dog yelled.
The master went to the
foxhole under the rock to take a closer look. All of a sudden a
mink popped its head out and started making mink noises. The master
and the dog did not realize it but it was Iyash. The foxwoman had
given him the mink fur. He was using it as a puppet to make it look
like it was real mink. Thinking that his dog was chasing mink the
"Ah, it is only mink.
That's not Iyash."
The dog continued to
bark, "It is true. I saw Iyash. It is him".
The master gave up on
his dog and returned to his mudookwan. In the meantime, Iyash had
quickly slipped out of the foxhole and crawled out to the other
side of the hanging arms. As he slowly walked away, he could still
hear the dog barking until he was at the distance that the barking
could not be heard.
