The Palm Oil Daughter is an African story about a rich lady who sells palm oil who had no children . She came home one day after working , and saw that all her housework was done ,but could not figure out exactly who did it . She was determined to find out , so she hid behind her house one morning , and saw a girl named Manuba singing . The girl was made of palm oil ! She begged her to stay , and the little girl agreed as long ad she could grant her safety from fire . They lived happily for a short while , but one day , when the woman was going to the market to sell her oil , she left Manuba at home with the servant . The servant refused to do all the work while Manuba was there , so she dragged her to the fire and told her to blow on it , just so the supper could cook in time . She began instantly melting , but the servant tried to save her .it was too late . She was already a puddle of oil. A bird told her mother everything , and the woman came rushing home , but all she met was a puddle of oil on the ground. This is where I continue the story.
