Semi asked the King what she should do. The King said, "Go inside the woods. You will find a cherry plant. In that, choose the ripest cherry and bring it to me". Saying this he disappeared.

She followed the instructions and brought the ripest cherry. When the cherry king saw the cherry, he asked Semi to eat it. When she ate it she began to shrink. She was turning into the cherry Princess. She wanted to find out who was throwing the stomes.

At daytime, she was out of the bush and was sitting in the sand so that she could see who was throwing the stomes. After sometime a boy was standing near the bush. It was Semi's younger brother, Martin, He was the one who was throwing the stones while playing.

She went to the cherry King and said what she saw. She asked him to turn her inti her normal size so that she could help. So King changed her into a girl. Then she asked her brother not to throw stones.

The kingdom was saved. The King thanked Semi and said that she could visit anytime she wanted to. As a gift, he gave her a bowl and said , "When you say "Start", cherries will start coming and when you say "stop" it will stop. Semi thanked the King and went home happily.

Now I am going to capture you and soon I will kill her and rule over the world. Ha! Ha! Ha!Ha! She took hold of them and disappeared.

Everyone in the castle disappeared except a servant who had gone to collect berries. When Princess Elena came back, she was surprised to see that none were there except the servant. The servant told Elena what had happened. Elena did not say a word and started to search for Rexona hastily.

She started running towards the dark Forest. While going she saw a small cottage. She was very tired and decided to rest for a while in the cottage.
