The Three Charms and Mountain Witch (Sanmai no Ofuda) Part 1


When he reached the mountain the boy found many ripe chestnuts, just as he had thought. He became so absorbed in gathering them that he completely forgot about the time. He didn't notice the sun going down, and before he knew it, it had become pitch dark.

"It feels a bit spooky when it's this dark. What will I do if the mountain witch really came out?" Just as he was thinking this, he suddenly heard a voice behind him.

"Well, well. Hello there, young boy."

Still thinking about the witch, the apprentice jumped with fright, but when he turned round he saw a gentle-looking old woman.

"Have you come to pick chestnuts? Why don't you come to my house? I'll cook them for you to eat."

The boy was very hungry and happily followed the old woman home. He ate chestnuts until he was so full that he grew sleepy and dozed off. He woke up in the middle of the night, not knowing how long he'd been asleep, and found that the old woman was not there. He heard a strange noise coming from the next room. Puzzled, he peeped into the room and saw the frightful-looking mountain witch sharpening a knife.

"Aaaaah!" he screamed, horrified. The witch looked up and glared at him.

Bahasa Indonesia:
Setibanya diatas gunung, anak laki-laki itu menemukan banyak kastanya matang, seperti yang diduganya. Dia terlalu asyik mengumpulkan buah-buah itu sampai lupa waktu. Dia tidak menyadari sinar matahari telah tenggelam, dan keadaan telah gelap gulita.

"Rasanya agak seram saat gelap disni. Apa yang akan aku lakukan jika penyihir gunung benar-benar keluar?" Baru saja ia memikirkannya, tiba-tiba terdengar suara di belakangnya.

"Apa kabar, anak muda."

Menduga bahwa itu adalah penyihir, pemuda pelajar itu melompat ketakutan, tapi ketika dia berbalik dia melihat seorang wanita tua yang tampak lembut.

"Apakah kamu datang untuk mengambil kacang kastanya? Mengapa kamu tidak ke rumahku saja? Aku akan memasaknya untukmu."

Karena anak itu sangat lapar maka dengan senang hati ia mengikuti wanita tua itu ke rumah. Dia makan  kastanya sampai kenyang kemudian mengantuk dan tertidur. Dia terbangun di tengah malam, tidak tahu sudah berapa lama dia tertidur, dan mendapati wanita tua itu tidak ada di sana. Dia mendengar suara aneh yang datang dari kamar sebelah. Bingung, dia mengintip ke dalam ruangan dan melihat penyihir gunung yang mengerikan itu menajamkan pisau.

"Aaaaah!" teriaknya, ngeri. Penyihir itu mendongak dan melotot padanya.
