In the past girls were married away to distant places. One day, a man decides to pay his sister a visit, who lived in a place far away. Upon arriving at her house, he sees that his sister has a corner of her ear missing. Strange things do not stop there. When he opens a box, he sees that it is full of human heads and legs. Frightened, he says to the hosts that he urgently needs to go home. Hence a saying: ‘It is better to spend the night out on the steppe than in the house of a Keryad person’.
