After Mumboro was captured, Anansi took him to Nyami.Nyami: “My eyes have seen Mumboro. You have done well, Anansi! Now return!”And so, Anansi went back to Earth, where he set the second part of his plan into action. Anansi: “What a coincidence you should happen by, Onini! Why, just this morning, I was having an argument with my wife. I said you were longer than this stick, and she said you were not. Would you help me prove that I am right?”Onini: “Why of course, friend Anansi!”Anansi: “If you could stretch out next to the stick and let me tie you to it, I would be able to prove that I am right!”Onini: “Oh, I can see that I am much longer than that stick! Yesss, of course, youmay tie me to it!”
Once Anansi had tightly spun a web around Onini and the stick, he took the snake to Nyami, far up in the sky.Nyami: “My eyes have seen Onini. You have done well Anansi! Now, return!”And so, Anansi went back to Earth, where he set the final part of his plan in action. Leopard: “Ah, friend Anansi, as you can see, I’ve fallen into this hole. Can you think of a way to get me out?”Anansi: “Hmmmm… Yes! I have an idea! There’s a springy tree over here. I’ll bend it down to you so you can tie your tail to it. Then, I’ll let you up very slowly.”Leopard: “Thank you, friend Anansi! I will forever be in your debt!”Well, Anansi watched carefully as Osebo [the leopard] tied his tail to the end of the tree. But then, instead of letting the tree up slowly, he let go all at once and hopped on the leopard’s tail.
