The Black Cat

I don’t expect you to believe the story I am about to write. But in order to die peacefully, I must tell my story.
      My wife and I loved pets. One of my wife’s favorite pets was Pluto, the cat. Pluto was a very clever black cat.
      One day I came home very drunk. I was in a very bad temper. For some reasons, Pluto made me angry. In a rage I seized the cat, took a small knife out of my pocket and cut its throat and took one of its eyes out ! Then I hanged the poor creature until it was dead 
    The next morning, I wake up and remembered what I had done and I felt sorry very much. I buried my memory in the drink.
      One night my house was burning. There was nothing left, but a strange thing happened. I found out in my bedroom wall the shape of a huge cat with one eye and a rope around its neck. I was terrified and could not forget such a horrible sight.
    I regretted and felt sorry for Pluto so I bought another cat to take Pluto’s place. This cat had a white patch on its chest.
      I soon began to dislike the cat because it often stared at me with a strange and hatred look. It terrified me very much.
      One day my wife and I went to the cellar. I was getting drunk at that time. The cat followed us. It got between my feet and nearly made me trip down the stairs. I was carrying an axe in my hand. I was so angry that I raised my axe wanting to kill the poor animal when my wife prevented me from doing so. My rage soon directed the axe at her. She fell dead at my feet.
Then I dug a grave to hide her body inside the cellar wall. I looked for the cat because I decided to kill it too, but I couldn’t find it anywhere.
The fourth day after the death of my wife, the police came to my house because of my neighbors’ suspicions; the police searched the house and found nothing. I was so glad that I said, “Gentlemen, this is a well-built house. Look at this wall.” I lifted  a stick and beat the wall in which I had buried my wife.

The Legend of Kesodo Feast

Hundreds years ago, the last king of Majapahit had a young princess from one of his wives. The princess was named Roro Anteng. Later, Roro Anteng married Joko Seger, who came from Brahman caste.
Because of unfortunate situation the couple was forced to leave the kingdom. They settled in the mountain area. They ruled the area and named it Tengger, which was derived from their names, Roro Anteng and Joko Seger.
After several years of reign, the region flourished in prosperity, but Roro Anteng and Joko Seger were sad because they did not have a child. They climbed the top of mountain and prayed there night and day hoping that the God would listen. The prayer was heard and Betoro Bromo promised them many children. However, they had to promise that they would sacrifice their youngest child in return.
Roro Anteng gave birth to a child, then another and another. In the end, Roro Anteng and Joko Seger had 25 children. Soon it was time to sacrifice the youngest child, Kusuma, but the parents could not do it. They tried to hide him, but an eruption happened and Kusuma fell into the crater. There was silence before they heard a voice. “I have to be sacrificed so that you will all stay alive. From now on, you should arrange an annual offering ceremony on the 14th of Kesodo (the twelfth month of Tengerese calendar)”. It was Kusuma’s voice. Kusuma’s brothers and sisters held the offering ceremony every year. Instead of human being, they collected fruits, vegetables, rice, and meat to be offered to the Gods. And this has been done generation after generation until today.
