The narrator tells the story of a seller of clay pots who discovers that his wife is a spook (she transformed into an animal at night). She offers to sacrifice her husband so that her companion spooks could eat him. But in the end, the spooks kill and eat the woman instead of her husband. This story is similar to other stories (#97, #106, and #147) in this collection.
