“Goodness! I have cooked a few yams for lunch,” Anansi said reluctantly.
“Goodness, would i be able to please remain for lunch? I am eager and tired of all the voyaging,” the turtle said.

However, when he achieved the table, Anansi had effectively completed all the sustenance with the exception of a piece that was saved for the turtle. The turtle was irate and embarrassed. “Much thanks to you for the beautiful lunch. I might want to welcome you over to my place for a feast sometime in the not so distant future,” the turtle said and left.

One day, he went at the bank of the waterway under which the turtle had his home and remained there at supper time.
The turtle saw him and stated, “Hi Anansi, thank you for coming. If it’s not too much trouble eat with me.” The turtle welcomed Anansi inside his home, which was submerged.
Anansi couldn’t hold up any more and immediately jumped into the water. However, oh, he was too light and couldn’t swim profound into the water. In the interim, the turtle was prepared with the heavenly spread.
Anansi attempted each conceivable measure to go under the stream; he attempted a running bounce, an awkward dive and a high plunge, yet couldn’t go underneath the surface of the water. Anansi began considering every option lastly chose to get a few shakes and place them in the pockets of his coat. His arrangement was effective and this time Anansi achieved straight to the turtle’s home subsequent to plunging submerged.
Anansi was awed to see the delectable spread and was going to dive into the main chomp when the turtle halted him. “Dear Anansi, generously evacuate your coat before you touch the nourishment. In our custom we don’t eat with our coats on,” the turtle said. Anansi saw that even the turtle was not wearing his coat. Anansi evacuated his coat which was brimming with rocks and stones and inside no time he went surging up to the surface of the water.
Anansi could see the turtle gradually devouring the stunning feast. Anansi felt tragic and gradually moved out of the water.
