The mouse couple lived just east of Pavi’ovi and were fearful that there would be no one to care for them in their old age. They prayed earnestly every day and night for a daughter and one cold winter day, their prayers were answered. As their daughter grew and reached marriagable age, the father knew that it was time to seek a husband for her.
