Madam Zeroni tells Elya about her son in america and that it is an amazing place were he can follow his dreams. She tries to convince him but Elya doesnt wont to leave.
Madam Zeroni gives up and takes him around to her pig pen. She tells Elya to take her smallest pig and that he shall carry him up the mountain to a stream and while the pig drinks he has to sing it a special song. When the day comes of Myra's 15th birthday he shall carry the pig up the mountain once more. She also warned him after he carries the pig up the mountain he should carry her up let her drink from the stream and sing her the special song if not, he and his ancestors will be cursed for eternity.
Elya carried the pig up the hill everyday and as the pig grow bigger and bigger Elya grew stronger and stronger.
