The Ou-Ou Village is always in the dark, all year round. The only lights at night are the moon and the fireflies that dance about in the shrubs. The villagers are the happiest on the nights with a full moon.
When the moon hides itself, the villagers have to carry lanterns Sith fireflies inside them to light their path when visiting their friends
Gu Lu-Lu, a small owl, thought someone must have stolen the fireflies away and ha wanted to catch the thief. Everyone gathered gloomily, deeply worried that Ou-Ou Village would remain in the dark forever.
Holding a lantern carefully in his hand, Choke arrived at Ou-Ou Village, in search of the Meerkats and the lost feather.
When the villagers saw the warm and bright light from the lantern in Chokko’s hand, they gathered around him. Some thought that Chokko was their hero, while others wondered if Chokko was the thief who had stolen their light!
Choke told the owls what had happened to him and Latti. When Chokko finished his story, the owls realized that he had nothing to do with their missing fireflies.
“Don’t worry! I can help!”, Choke said to the owls, as he took something out of his backpack. He showed them that he had the materials to make candle lanterns and could teach the grown-up owls how to make them. The young owls knew better than to ever touch matches and candles!
On order to thank Chokko for returning light to the village, Gu Lu-Lu plucked a beautiful feather from his body and gave it to Choke as a souvenir. Chokko received it happily and continued his journey.
