1. The Narts had a sister. Gunda was her name. She was a very beautifull girl. She was engaged with the lord of atsans Yarchkhyaw. The one called Khwazhwarpys was equal to Narts. He threw his arash (magic horse) with its saddle on over a house twice and thrice then catching it from beneath he sat on him. He didn't yield to the Narts in dancing, entertaining, in courage and in build.

2. He decided to win Narts' sister. He informed Narts of his intention. He was told that the sister of the Narts was engaged with Yarchkhyaw, but without worries he said to them: If you agree to my marriage with her, I will fight Yarchkhyaw, and if I loose let he have her, and If I win, I will take her - he told them.

The Narts agreed. Yarjkhyaw and Khwazhwarpys scuffled. As they were scuffling and scuffling, an arrow hit one of Yarchkhyaw's heads,and injured it. Yarchkhyaw had seven heads. After he was wounded, Yarchkhyaw bid Khwazhwarpys to let him go to Aynar-blacksmith repair his head and give him time till he returns. Kwazhwarpys agreed, and gave him a delay.

4. Нарҭаа ран Гәашьаныса ажәлар лыҧҳа лҙы иаидынҵәалуашәа анылба, дрықәшәыит: «Нан, сыҧҳа, бара бымшала ажәлар иаидынҵәалт.

"Nan, my daughter, because of you people are killing each other. Begining from this day may no one shed blood and sweat because of you, and you turn into stone! Khwazhwarpys, your glory was great, you were strong, you were famous throughout the world, may your name not vanish, and as rhododendron (akhwazhw) spread through the globe! Yarchkhyaw may you not survive the arrow that touched you!" - she said, and everything happened as she said. Everything she was saing happened in that time. That's why rhododendron is in every forest."
