Hobiang and K'lang’s houses were in hill feet. They dropped across when they picked up fruits in the forest. Hobiang was in danger and K'lang was courageous to save her escape from ferocious wolves. It was the first time they met but they crushed and then they fell in love with each other. However, due to curse between two people, Hobiang could not get married with K'lang. Against strict feudal rites, they were determined to live together. They got married and moved to a place in mountain top to live. When Hobiang was sick, K'lang tried to treat but Hobiang was not better. He had to return his people to be helped.
