Naita Aka Oni - The Red Ogre Who Cried
Once, there were two ogres. One was red and the other was blue. The red ogre wanted to befriend the children who lived in a nearby village. With that, the red ogre placed a sign in front of his house:
- House of a Gentle Ogre
- Are all welcome
- Tasty tea and cakes available
However, no one came, and the red ogre was puzzled, sad and angry. "I am such a kind ogre, why wouldn't anyone visit me?" In despair and torment, the red ogre dropped the sign: "This is useless".
His friend, the blue ogre, moved by his friend's feelings, said to him: "Look, I have a plan".
The blue ogre's plan was for him to pretend to terrorize the children. However, as long as he was terrorizing the children, the ogre would appear. And he would rescue the children by pretending to chase and chase the blue ogre.
And so it was done, and the whole plan went smoothly. Making the red ogre the most popular creature among children, and everyone came to play with him.
After enjoying the company of the children for a while, the red ogre found a letter from the blue ogre. The letter said: “My dear Red Ogre, if people discover that you are a friend of the Bad Blue Ogre, they will no longer let the children come to you. So, I'm leaving. Please live happily with the children Goodbye, Blue Ogre. “
Desperate for not knowing what to do, the red ogre shouted: “The blue ogre is gone! A dear friend of mine! He's gone! ” And he cried. However, her tears could no longer undo what had happened.
The red ogre and the blue ogre would never meet again. Because of his negligence, he ended up losing his dear friend.
