Once, one of the snakelets hid in their gloomy house and when the old couple wished they had kept the snakelets, she called them and said she was their daughter. They named her The Pomegranate Girl; Pomo, and she was their sweetheart. When the prince returned from India, Pomo decided to visit him. On her way, she solved what the fairy princess had been weeping for. In return, she turned Pomo into a beautiful girl and gave her three strands of her hair so that she burn it and make a wish when in trouble.

How do you think Pomo will tackle the situation? Is there a limit to her playfulness?
