When Grandpa was out, Ochon ate grapes made by her grandmother, so the grandmother was furious and cut a little tongue with scissors. The grandfather who came home and heard about it went to the forest to find the goby who ran away.

A grandpa came and welcomed me when my grandfather looked for a sparrow. Two girls came out as souvenirs on the way home, and the old man told me to take one I like, picked the smaller one and went back home.
