The old man named Jarlkirjarlki Jakamarra who was watching them from his country Munyuparnti-parhti, near Mt Dennison. So he went up to them and took them towards the east.

Jakamarra took them to a place called Yalankirri that is in Alawarri Country.

The Jakamarra was singing love songs for them and so he left them at Yalankirri, while he was singing he made the ladies put their hands behind their backs. The ladies stopped at this place called Yalankirri forever and Jajamarra Jarlkijarlki came back to Munyuparnti-parnti.

Before Jakamarra man took the women east the women made a big wee at Munyuparnti partni and they made a big hole in the ground and this hole is called Munypartni, partni and in this story also the Jakamarra man was rubbing his hand on his private parts so he could have all the women to himself
