The Three Charms and Mountain Witch (Sanmai no Ofuda) Part 4


The priest saw how arrogant the witch was and said, "Can you make yourself as tall as the ceiling?" No sooner had he said this than the witch grew to the height of the ceiling with no trouble at all. "Mmm. But I bet you can't make yourself as tall as that mountain over there," continued the priest.

"Piece of cake," replied the witch and made herself as big as the mountain.

The priest appeared to be impressed. "That's really something. You can make yourself bigger, but you can't make yourself as small as a bean, can you?" he said.

The witch became piqued. "That's easy. Just watch." Now she shrank to a size no bigger than the end of the priest's finger.

"Very impressive! So now it's my turn," said the priest. He then suddenly picked up the bean-sized witch and stuffed her in the rice cake he had been toasting and gulped it down in one mouthful.

From then on, the witch was never seen again in the mountains, and the mischievous young apprentice became a very good boy, listening attentively to everything the priest said.

Bahasa Indonesia:
Pendeta itu melihat betapa sombongnya penyihir itu dan berkata, "Dapatkah kamu membuatmu setinggi langit-langit?"

Tidak lama setelah dia mengatakan itu, penyihir itu berubah menjadi setinggi langit-langit tanpa masalah sama sekali.

"Mmm, tapi aku yakin kamu tidak bisa membuat dirimu setinggi gunung itu di sana," lanjut pendeta tersebut.

"Terlalu mudah buatku," jawab sang penyihir dan membuat dirinya sebesar gunung itu.

Pendeta itu tampak terkesan. "Benar-benar mengesankan, kamu bisa membuat dirimu lebih besar, tapi kamu tidak bisa membuat dirimu sekecil kacang, bukan?" dia berkata.

Penyihir itu menjadi gusar. "Itu mudah, lihatlah." Sekarang dia menyusut ke ukuran yang tidak lebih besar dari ujung jari Pendeta itu.

"Sangat mengesankan! Jadi sekarang giliranku," kata pendeta. Dia kemudian tiba-tiba memindahkan penyihir berukuran kacang itu dan memasukkannya ke dalam kue beras yang telah dipanggangnya dan memakannya dalam sekali kunyah.

Sejak saat itu, penyihir itu tidak pernah terlihat lagi di pegunungan, dan murid muda nakal itu menjadi anak yang sangat baik, mendengarkan dengan penuh perhatian pada semua yang dikatakan Pendeta tersebut.
