Manto was referring to something else, that word you should not mention this time of the day (shh), dont call him, that one that's short and walks at night, they use bricks under the feet of the bed for protection, then it cannot reach! If he takes you? Boy o' Boy. The tokeloshi! Garlic keeps it away they say, protect you against the evil. She just got a bit confused with the speech!
