Naita Aka Oni - The Red Ogre That Cried

Once, there were two ogres. One was red in color 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
  • you are all welcome
  • Tasty tea and cakes available

However, no one came, and the red ogre was puzzled, sad and angry. "I'm 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, told him: "Look, I have a plan".

The blue ogre's plan was for him to pretend to terrorize the children. However, while he was terrorizing the children, the ogre would appear. And he would rescue the children by pretending to chase away and chase the blue ogre.

And so it was done, and the whole plan went off without a hitch. Making the red ogre the most popular creature among the children, and everyone came to play with him.

After enjoying the company of children for some time, the red ogre found a letter from the blue ogre. The letter read: “My dear Red Ogre, if people find out that you are friends with 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 at not knowing what to do, the red ogre yelled, “The blue ogre is gone! A dear friend of mine! He's gone!” And he cried. However, her tears could no longer undo what happened.

The red ogre and the blue ogre would never meet again. Because of his negligence, he ended up losing his dear friend.
