Now it’s time for people to present their special gift. They gave the box of gifts to the daughter Gilang Rukmini. King Suwartalaya opened the box and pulled out a colorful necklace is very beautiful and give it to Gilang daughter Rukmini. Gilang daughter Rukmini looked at the necklace with a frown. King Suwartalaya looked at his daughter, “Come on kid, wearing the necklace! That is a sign of love to you people. Do not disappoint them boy! ”
“Yes my daughter. It was a beautiful necklace instead. Let’s wear! Let the people happy, “said the Queen Purbamanah.
“Good for what? This necklace is ugly. The color is tacky, tacky! I do not want to wear it! “Shouted Gilang daughter Rukmini.
He slammed the necklace to the floor until destroyed. Suwartalaya King, Queen Purbamanah and Kutatanggeuhan can only stunned the people witnessed the incident.
