The old woman, seeing the holes of the sesame leaves eaten by slugs, complains.
“These bugs make me so angry. They call them spirits of communist guerrillas. I think they are more cruel than the communists.”
You cannot see any slugs. Did they hide to avoid the harsh sun?
“They can’t come out while it’s hot; they come out only at night. They don’t even die with pesticide. That’s why they call them spirits of guerrillas.”
