Once upon a time in West Sumatra, a widow took her two children to a party. Her children, a boy and a girl, were very happy. They wore beautiful clothes to the party. They ate delicious foods and saw many guests at the party. The children were having a great time.

There was also a traditional music show. The show was crowded with people. The children asked their mother if they could see the music show which was located a few meters away.

 "Yes, you both may go there but don't go too far," said the mother. The children ran to the stage where the music show was. They enjoyed the music, but soon they were bored just watching the show. So they took a walk around the stage. They forgot their mother's message not to go too far.

 After a while, they saw a pond. The water was very clear and fresh. Because the sun was very hot, they were tempted to play in the water. They took off their clothes and jumped into the water. They swam together happily. It felt so fresh.

 Meanwhile, the party was almost over. The mother remembered her two children. She felt so desperate because she could not find them. Day turned into night. The children were still missing. The mother only cried and she went home without her children.

 After a long hour of crying, she fell asleep and had a dream about her children. In her dream, she met an old woman. The old woman told her, "Your children are in the pond near the party house. If you want to see them, throw a handful of rice into the pond. Your children will appear."

 As soon as she woke up, she quickly ran to the pond. She also had a handful of rice in her hand. When she reached the pond, she threw the rice into the pond and called out her children's names. The dream came true. Two big fish with beautiful colors appeared in the pond. The mother cried when she saw them. Her children had turned into two big beautiful fish because they disobeyed their mother's message. The mother cried again. All the people of the village tried to cheer her up, but she was still very sad.

The village where the pond was located is now called Desa Sungai Jernih. It is called so because the water in the pond is very clear. Desa Sungai Jernih is located in the northern part of Nagari Baso, in Agam Regency, West Sumatra. The name of the village also reminds people today in West Sumatra that it is important to obey our parents.[]
