In one morning, the grandmother would go to the market. Before she left, she asked her granddaughter to cook.
“Please cook some rice for lunch. But just cook one grain of rice. It’s enough for both of us.”
“Why, Grandma? asked the girl
“Just do what I said.”
The grandmother then left for the market. Later, the girl started to cook. However, she felt a grain of rice would not be enough for them.
“I think it’s not enough for me and my grandmother.” Then she took handfuls of rice. Suddenly, something bad happened to the rice pot. “Oh no! the rice flowed out of the pot!” shouted the girl. “What should I do?” The rice became rice porridge. It flowed and flowed until it covered the kitchen. Suddenly, the grandmother came home. The girl explained what happened.
“You are naughty girl! Why didn’t you listen to me? The grandmother was so angry. She hit the girl with a wooden stick.
“Please forgive me, Grandma! The little cried an cried. But the grandmother kept hitting her.
Then, a incredible thing happened! The girl turned into a monkey. The monkey then ran away an climbed a tree. The grandmother chased it. From the tree, the monkey said “ Grandmother, I’m a monkey now. I cannot live with you anymore, You are all alone.”
The monkey climbed up and disappeared. The grandmother was very sad. She regretted what she had done to her beloved granddaughter. “Please come back to me. Please forgive me, my granddaughter!” but it was too late.
