Should not allow her to go into the middle of the island because the life of the woman may be in danger. A stranger whose life would be in danger. She has hearkened to the voice of the spirits that have spoken to her and have been waiting outside her house for the stranger


That the gods are talking about. When even she sees anyone passing by and she goes near, the person would either be a native of the land, and a native of the island is not a stranger, thence she knows that is not the person the gods talk to her about. However, she has


Seen two strangers pass by and as she was about going to them the gods have told her that those were not the strangers they were talking about. When she appeared from a distance, she says the gods told her here comes the one I have talked to you about. However, on seeing that

Years after they have been living together, they notice someone entered the island, and the man looks like a stranger, the young man has gone to the house to ask of her mother, he told the woman that he is asking for the priestess of the island for he has been told by those
