تِينْغِي يَعِيشُ مَعَ جَدَّتِهِ.

Tingi lived with his grandmother.

Tingi vivía con su abuela.


هُوَ اِعْتَادَ أَنْ يَهْتَمَّ بِالبَقَرَ مَعَهَا.

He used to look after the cows with her.

Cuidaba a las vacas con ella.


فِي أَحَدِ الأَيَّامِ جَاءَ اَلجُنودُ.

One day the soldiers came.

Un día llegaron los soldados.


وَأَخَذُوا اَلبَقَرَ بَعِيداً.

They took the cows away.

Se llevaron las vacas.


هَرَبَ تِينْغِي وَجَدَّتُهُ بَعِيداً وَاختَبَؤُا.

Tingi and his grandmother ran away and hid.

Tingi y su abuela huyeron para esconderse.


وَاخْتَبَؤُا بيْنَ اَلشُّجَيْرَاتِ حَتَّى اللَّيْلِ.

They hid in the bush until night.

ثُمَّ عَادَ اَلجُنودُ.

Then the soldiers came back.

Pero los soldados regresaron.


خَبَّأَتْ اَلجَدَّةُ تِينْغِي تَحْتَ الأَوْرَاقِ.

Grandmother hid Tingi under the leaves.

La abuela tomó a Tingi y lo escondió debajo de las hojas.


وَضَعَ أَحَدُ اَلجُنُودِ قَدَمَهُ عَلَى يَمِينِهِ، لَكِنَّهُ بَقِيَ هَادِئاً.

One of the soldiers put his foot right on him, but he kept quiet.

Uno de los soldados puso su pie directamente sobre él, pero Tingi se quedó en silencio.


عِندَمَا صَارَ اَلمَكَانُ آمِناً، خَرَجَ تِينْغِي وجَدَّتَهُ.

When it was safe, Tingi and his grandmother came out.

Cuando estuvieron a salvo, Tingi y su abuela salieron.


وَتَسَلَّلَا إِلَى بَيْتِهِمَا بِبُطْئٍ.

They crept home very quietly.
