It was also the day that nobody went to the River Dome.
After their parents left for the market, they also set off to the forest.
Nyamekyɛ answered, "I have read that when rivers overflow their banks you can cross by making a sacrifice."
Ntiamoa said, "Nana Dome if you will allow me to cross over, I will offer you three times three kola nuts." Nyamekyɛ made the same promise.
River Dome responded, "My grandchildren, cross over, and remember to fulfil your promises."
On their way home they got to the river again. This time the water was even higher.
When it was Adeɛpɛna's turn, she did not have the two eggs that she promised. The river would not allow her to cross.
Papa Koo Nimo went out to help his daughter.
As she was crossing the river, she started to drown.
"Flying Bird! Go and tell my mother. Go and tell my father. Bring two eggs. River Dome is taking me away!"
Unfortunately, only her hair stayed in the palms of his hands. Her body slipped away under the water.
Adeepena's hair stuck to her father's chest.
And that is why men have chest hairs.
