Simphor and Marinette – Simphor has known Marinette since his childhood. Their marriage was born from a sincere and durable relationship, but Simphor’s family is against it because Marinette belongs to a different tribe. One day, Marinette starts growing until she reaches two metres high. Simphor begins to worry but doesn’t want to believe in superstitions and so asks an expert in love problems for his opinion. The expert explains that it’s a normal problem: both believe they’re not up to the situation. Simphor and Marinette speak all night and, thanks to their talk, she returns to normal dimensions and the couple can be happy again.
