Contoh Narrative Text : Danau Malawen

Malawen Lake

ONCE upon a time there was a husband and wife who lived near the jungle. They were very poor. They did not have any children yet. Every day they prayed to god to give them a child. One night the wife had a dream. An old man came to her and told her that she and her husband had to meditate for 100 days in the jungle. The wife told her husband about her dream. They hoped it was a sign from god to give them a child.

Later they went to the jungle. After spending for 100 days, they went home. And it was true! Not long after that the wife was pregnant. And nine months later the baby boy was born. The named him Kumbang Banaung.

Kumbang grew as a handsome and strong young man. However he was not obedient. He never listened to his parents’ advice. And it happened again when he wanted to hunt in the jungle. It was already dark and his parents asked him to wait until morning. But Kumbang ignored it. He insisted to go to the jungle to hunt.

His parents could not do anything. His father gave Kumbang a magic plate. The plate could help him in a difficult situation. After he received the plate, Kumbang went to the jungle.

It was dark and Kumbang could not see clearly. And he had to face the worst risk. He was lost! He kept on walking and finally he crossed the jungle. He arrived in a village. There was a party. Kumbang saw a very beautiful girl. He came to her and introduced himself.

The girl’s name was Intan. Her father was the head of the village. The party was her birthday party. Kumbang fell in love with her. And after the party was over, everybody went home. Kumbang also wanted to go home. He tried to memorized the way to go home. He was lucky. He could go back home. He arrived in the morning. His parents were so worried. Kumbang did not tell them about his experience. He planned to visit Intan again. And after his parents slept, he left the house.

Kumbang met Intan again. She was happy to see Kumbang. She also loved him. They continued to see each other in the following nights. And it made the villagers restless.

They did not like to see what Kumbang and Intan were doing every night. The villagers told the head of the village to do something. Intan’s father had an idea. He came to a rich merchant and asked him to marry his son with Intan. The merchant agreed.

The head of the village told Intan that she would get married soon. Intan was so sad. She told Kumbang to propose her soon. Kumbang immediately told his parents. However they did not agree. They were poor and they thought it was not appropriate for him to propose a rich girl. Kumbang was so angry. He left the house. And he also brought the magic plate.

When he met Intan, Kumbang asked her to run away. And while they were leaving the village, some villagers saw them. They tried to stop the couple. Kumbang and Intan were running. They kept on running and finally they were at the side of a river. They had to cross the river but there was no boat. Kumbang then remembered about his magic plate. He threw the magic plate to the river.

Amazingly, the plate grew bigger. He asked Intan to get on the plate. They used it as a boat. While they were crossing the river, suddenly rain fell down heavily. There was a big storm. Heavy wind blew them upside down and finally they were drowning.

Slowly the river changed into a lake. People named the lake as Malawen Lake. People also believed that Kumbang and Intan changed as white crocodiles. They stayed in the lake. Up to now people still believe that the white crocodiles still live in the lake. ***

Terjemahan

Danau Malawen

Dahulu kala ada seorang suami dan istri yang tinggal di dekat hutan. Mereka sangat miskin. Mereka belum punya anak. Setiap hari mereka berdoa kepada tuhan untuk memberi mereka anak kecil. Suatu malam sang istri bermimpi. Seorang pria tua mendatanginya dan mengatakan kepadanya bahwa dia dan suaminya harus bermeditasi selama 100 hari di hutan. Sang istri memberi tahu suaminya tentang mimpinya. Mereka berharap itu pertanda dari tuhan untuk memberi mereka anak kecil.

Kemudian mereka pergi ke hutan. Setelah menghabiskan waktu selama 100 hari, mereka pulang ke rumah. Dan itu benar! Tidak lama kemudian istri tersebut hamil. Dan sembilan bulan kemudian bayi laki-laki itu lahir. Yang diberi nama Kumbang Banaung.

Kumbang tumbuh sebagai pemuda tampan dan tangguh. Namun dia tidak patuh. Dia tidak pernah mendengarkan saran orang tuanya. Dan hal itu terjadi lagi saat ia ingin berburu di hutan. Hari sudah gelap dan orang tuanya memintanya untuk menunggu sampai pagi. Tapi Kumbang mengabaikannya. Dia bersikeras untuk pergi ke hutan untuk berburu.

Orang tuanya tidak bisa berbuat apa-apa. Ayahnya memberi Kumbang piring ajaib. Piring itu bisa membantunya dalam situasi sulit. Setelah dia menerima piring itu, Kumbang pergi ke hutan.

Hari sudah gelap dan Kumbang tidak bisa melihat dengan jelas. Dan dia harus menghadapi risiko terburuk. Dia tersesat! Dia terus berjalan dan akhirnya dia menyeberangi hutan. Dia tiba di sebuah desa. Ada sebuah pesta. Kumbang melihat seorang gadis yang sangat cantik. Dia mendatanginya dan memperkenalkan dirinya.

Nama gadis itu adalah Intan. Ayahnya adalah kepala desa. Pesta itu adalah pesta ulang tahunnya. Kumbang jatuh cinta padanya. Dan setelah pesta usai, semua orang pulang ke rumah. Kumbang juga ingin pulang. Ia mencoba menghafal cara pulang ke rumah. Dia beruntung. Dia bisa pulang ke rumah. Dia tiba di pagi hari. Orang tuanya sangat khawatir. Kumbang tidak menceritakan pengalamannya kepada mereka. Dia berencana untuk mengunjungi Intan lagi. Dan setelah orang tuanya tidur, dia meninggalkan rumah.

Kumbang bertemu Intan lagi. Dia senang melihat Kumbang. Dia juga mencintainya. Mereka terus saling bertemu di malam selanjutnya. Dan itu membuat penduduk desa gelisah.

Mereka tidak suka melihat apa yang dilakukan Kumbang dan Intan setiap malam. Penduduk desa mengatakan kepada kepala desa untuk melakukan sesuatu. Ayah Intan punya ide. Dia mendatangi seorang pedagang kaya dan memintanya untuk menikahkan anaknya dengan Intan. Pedagang itu setuju.

Kepala desa mengatakan kepada Intan bahwa dia akan segera menikah. Intan sangat sedih. Dia mengatakan kepada Kumbang untuk segera melamarnya. Kumbang langsung memberitahu orang tuanya. Namun mereka tidak setuju. Mereka miskin dan mereka pikir tidak pantas baginya untuk melamar seorang gadis kaya. Kumbang sangat marah. Dia meninggalkan rumah. Dan dia juga membawa piring ajaib itu.

Saat bertemu Intan, Kumbang memintanya untuk melarikan diri. Dan saat mereka meninggalkan desa, beberapa penduduk desa melihat mereka. Mereka mencoba menghentikan pasangan tersebut. Kumbang dan Intan berlari. Mereka terus berlari dan akhirnya mereka berada di sisi sungai. Mereka harus menyeberangi sungai tapi tidak ada sampan. Kumbang kemudian teringat akan piring sihirnya. Dia melempar piring sihir ke sungai.

Hebatnya, piringnya semakin besar. Dia meminta Intan untuk naik ke piring. Mereka menggunakannya sebagai sampan. Saat mereka menyeberangi sungai, tiba-tiba hujan turun deras. Ada badai besar. Angin kencang meniup mereka terbalik dan akhirnya mereka tenggelam.

Perlahan sungai berubah menjadi danau. Orang-orang menamai danau tersebut sebagai Danau Malawen. Orang juga percaya bahwa Kumbang dan Intan berubah menjadi buaya putih. Mereka tinggal di danau. Sampai sekarang orang masih percaya bahwa buaya putih masih tinggal di danau itu. ***
