|Language of Indigenous Description
|Gaspar will tell us about a man who thought a lot about a woman. He felt very sad because of her. It was already noon and he saw the woman arrive at the place where he worked. The man was happy; he ran to her. She sat near the stalk of a pine tree. The man was already going to talk to her and he saw that the woman was no longer there, she disappeared alone, and soon after, the man began to tremble from the nothingness and he was heartsick for a long time just from seeing that woman.
