One day Pontshibobo and Hippo were walking down the street together. Hippo had an idea, "Let's go and smoke a zol," he said.
He told the tree about Hippo. "I have lost a friend," he said.
Then he replied, "I want a house. I am grown up now and I want a home. I want to marry and have children."
Pontshibobo did as the tree told him and he built a small, beautiful house. He married and had children. He was happy.
Just at that moment Pontshibobo came into the yard. He heard what the tree said, and he saw that the tree was very sick.
They told stories and laughed and were happy. Pontshibobo and the tree were friends forever.
