the little one
The little one is a demon appearing in childlike form. It is also called The little one with a red hat. People say that he usually hangs in the fields near bushes, and if he comes out to the path, he is often riding a horse. He is about the height of a five to seven-year-old, but with a face of a forty-year-old man without beard or mustache. He is dressed in pants and a coat of earthly tone and wears a belt, with a pointy, red hat on his head. The little one is never in a hurry but walks across the field slowly. If he comes across a river or a stream he never gets wet when passing over it. He is the protector of an old tradition, helps married couples and tries to make peace between people fighting. He is also a protector of milk women and all women who make products out of milk. A milk woman must not pray for more milk unless she is written in the little one's book, if she does it without him knowing, then her cow will give less milk, and she will not be able to sell her products on the market. The little one is helpful to people who are kind to him. He loves to eat, especially greasy oatmeal, and often asks people to feed him, and he gives them wheat in return.
