Once upon a time In a small village nestled in a lush valley There was a family that lived happily together. There are 4 siblings in this family: the oldest, the middle, the youngest, and the youngest.

Sam was the oldest, always calm and wise. Lou was the middle one, full of surprises. Pip was the youngest, who was full of cheer, and then came Nib, the littlest dear.

Their parents had a small durian orchard that they wanted to take care of. But when the parents had to travel to visit four relatives in different villages for several weeks, the siblings had to take on the responsibility of taking care of the durian orchard instead.

One day, the wind whispered secrets to the trees, and the trees rustled and rumbled, 'Come play, come see!' Off the siblings went, running with glee.

Big Brother is the oldest sister who is responsible and knowledgeable about gardening. She plans and divides duties among her siblings. P'Klang is a smart older brother who has the ability to invent. He created a device that helps with watering and caring for durian trees. The maknae is a kind and gentle younger sister. She keeps a close eye on the durian trees. Water and fertilize the durian tree every day. The youngest is an imaginative and curious younger brother. He helps his older siblings by picking ripe durian fruit and selling them at the market.

With a hop, a skip, and a jump so high, they reached a meadow, under a brilliant blue sky. There they met a rabbit who sang a tune, hopping on the grass, under the golden noon.

One day, the four brothers were working in the durian orchard. They encountered a problem. Some of the durian trees began to have yellow leaves and small durian fruits began to fall off. Big Brother called a family meeting to find a solution to the problem. P'Klang suggested that “We should try out the new fertilizer formula I invented. This may help the durian trees come back strong.” The youngest agreed and said, "Yes. We should pay more attention to watering and taking better care of the durian trees."

'Follow us!', said Sam with a knowing grin, 'There's magic to find that's hidden deep within.' Over hills and stones, through the river they went, laughing and singing, on a grand adventure bent.

The youngest suggested an idea. “We should investigate and find out the reasons why durian trees have problems. Maybe we can find the answer in the nature around the garden.” The eldest concluded, “OK, we will divide up the duties as the middle eldest, the youngest, and the youngest proposed. We will work together and solve problems together.” The four brothers set to work as planned. They experimented with a new fertilizer formula. Water and take close care of the durian tree. and surveyed the environment in the garden. Eventually, the durian tree came back strong and produced many fruits.

Lou found a key hanging from a tree, 'A key to a castle? What could it be?' Pip clapped and cheered, 'Let's go, let's see!' Even little Nib nodded, full of glee.

Parents come home So the father said to his son, Dad is proud of his four children.

They opened a door that was hidden so tight; inside was a castle, glimmering with light! With rooms full of treasures and halls so grand, they explored every corner, hand in hand.

After that, the four siblings worked together to take good care of the durian orchard until it was successful and they lived happily.

There were giggles and gasps at the sight of things, like crowns, jewels, and even a dragon with wings! But this dragon was kind; he offered them tea, with cookies that tasted like honey from a bee.

As the sun set low and the sky turned red, Sam said, 'It’s time to go, we must head to bed.' With hearts full of wonder and minds full of dreams, they walked back home under moonbeam gleams.

The siblings walking back home through a serene, moonlit landscape with a setting sun in the background.

Back in the village, they settled down, with stories to tell and adventures renowned. And as they fell asleep, their dreams took flight, knowing that magic could happen any night.

The siblings back in their cozy home, asleep with dreamy expressions, while magical dreams swirl above their heads.
