    A Lake the Size of a Papaya Fruit

































































    From Stella Gaitano's Short Story:
    A Lake the Size of a Papaya Fruit
    Translated into English by:
    Asha Musa

    Everything about her, reminded me of the erect Papaya tree in a very spacious house courtyard. She was tall, stout, and firm in spite of the creeping senility.
    My grandmother didn’t carry any signs of beauty. I saw her as ugly as a Gorilla with her thick lips and big head that could do as a comfortable stool if needed! She decorated her lower lip with a big hole filled with a piece of wood coined for the purpose. When she removed the lip ornament, saliva leaked through the hole. The most significant ugly detail on her face was her pug nose. When she heard people commenting on her pug nose she used to say indifferently,
    ‘’it is enough that I can breathe through it.’’
    I used to see the sky through the hole in her earlobe and there was a third hole in her pug nose too. A large part of her gum in the lower jaw showed through the space left by four extracted teeth. Her eyes were red and crouched over by swollen eyelids.
    What I admired about my grandmother was her great resilience to pain! She once went to defecate in the open and came back scratching her heel which was beginning to swell. She didn’t show any signs of pain. When I asked innocently what the matter was she calmly answered: “seems I’m bit by a snake!” She took a knife and cut through her skin to the vein where the sting was. It was like she was doing it to someone else and the knife was cutting grooves on another person’s body. I felt dizzy when I saw black blood oozing from the wounds, making a pool the colour of blood and venom. She took a black antitoxic stone and crushed it before stuffing the incision she made on her skin with the small pebbles cruelly. She didn’t even wince as the stones were known to have a burning effect on wounds. She suddenly looked at me and I shrunk more in my fear. I started frantically looking for excuses to move further and further away from her as I knew her way of thinking. Whenever she took any medicine she would make me take it with her for fear of infection. But I couldn’t escape from her iron fist that clamped me down by the wrist. She made two cuts with her knife at the back of my hands and feet so quickly that I didn’t even have a chance to cry! I felt the pain crawling into me as the blood started dropping from the eight cuts she made. She then took the antidote and robbed it as harshly as if she meant the fragmented stones to get right into my veins. She said as she was continuing her cruel act on me with her voice that is unlike other women’s voices, ‘’this way those moving ropes will never sting you. If they see you they will not dare move until go away.’’
    That was her traditional metaphysical belief used as prevention against snakes and other types of venom. Sure enough, since that day neither of us got stung by a snake even though they moved everywhere in our large courtyard which was full of trees and vegetables and in the centre stood the Papaya tree with its several large breasts.
