Jaka eye Tarub see piles of clothes angel on top of a large rock at the edge of the lake. All the clothes are different colors. "If I take one of these angel outfit, which has certainly would not be able to return to heaven", muttered Jake Tarub. His face was decorated with a smile when imagining the angel that he stole her clothes would be willing to become his wife.
With careful Jake Tarub walked over piles of clothes. He walked very slowly. If angels were aware of his presence, of course all planned to be dispersed. Jaka Tarub chose a red shirt. After work, Jake Tarub rush rush slipped behind the bush.
Suddenly a man from the angel said, "Let's go home now. It was late afternoon ". "Yes, right. Should we go home now before sunset, "added another. The angel came out of the lake and put on their clothes, respectively.

Same with your clothes .. ", Nawangwulan replied tearfully. He looked very panicked. Without his shirt, where perhaps he could return to Heaven. Moreover, the scarf she wore to fly participate disappeared, too.
Because Nawangwulan not find his clothes, he immediately went back to Lake Toyawening. Her other friends to help find clothes Nawangwulan. Their efforts are in vain because the clothes are taken home Nawangwulan Jaka Tarub to his home.
Finally, an angel said: "Nawangwulan, forgive us. We must immediately return to heaven and leave you here. It was already late in the afternoon ". Nawangwulan can not do anything. He just nodded and waved to six friends who fly slowly leaves Lake Toyawening. "Maybe it's my destiny to be the inhabitants of the earth", thought Nawangwulan while tears.
Nawangwulan look desperate. Suddenly unconsciously he said "Those who can give me the clothes I'll make sister when she was a woman, but when he was a boy I'll make my husband". Jaka Tarub who had been watching the gestures Nawangwulan happy smiling from behind a tree. "Finally my dream come true", he thought.
Jaka Tarub out of hiding and walks towards the lake. He brought suit his late mother had taken when coming home earlier.

Without a doubt Jaka Tarub Nawangwulan willing to accept as her husband.
Since I married Nawang Wulan, Jaka Tarub feel very happy. But there was one thing that bothered her during this time. Jaka Tarub wonder why they seem rice granary is not reduced even if cooked every day. Old old pile of rice was increasing. Harvests regularly make their barns barely fit anymore to contain it.One morning, Nawangwulan want to wash into the river. He entrusts Nawangsih on Jake Tarub.
Nawangwulan also reminded that her husband not to open the lid to cook steamed rice being.
When was playing with Nawangsih, who was only one year, Jaka Tarub remembered the rice being cooked his wife. Because it was already a long time, Jake Tarub wanted to see if the rice is cooked. Unconsciously Jaka Tarub open the rice steamer. He forgot the message Nawangwulan.
To the astonishment of Jaka Tarub just to see the contents of the steamer. Nawangwulan just cook a sprig of paddy. He immediately thought of their grain stocks are gradually becoming more common. The question is fulfilled during this time.
Nawangwulan who apparently had arrived home to her husband glared at the kitchen door. "Why did you break my message Mas?" She asked angrily. Jaka Tarub could not answer. He was silent. "Gone was kesaktianku to change a sprig of paddy into rice basket", continued Nawangwulan. "From now on I have to pound rice to cook. Therefore Mas should provide a mortar for me ".
Jaka Tarub regretted his actions. But what can I say, it was too late. From that day Nawangwulan always pounding rice to be cooked. Start seen their rice inventories increasingly depleted. Even now it has been remaining rice in the bottom of the barn.
As usual that morning Nawangwulan to a barn located in the backyard to pick up the rice. When it was pulling the stem of rice stalks were left a bit of it, Nawangwulan felt hands holding something soft. Out of curiosity, Nawangwulan continue to attract it. Nawangwulan instantly pale face stared who had just successfully achieved. Angel dress and red shawl ..
Various feelings raged in her heart. Nawangwulan find himself deceived by Jaka Tarub which has now become her husband. He did not expect it turns out the person who stole his heart was Jaka Tarub. Soon the desire that never goes out of his heart will be so strong. Nawangwulan wants to return to his home, heaven.Tarub afternoon when Jake returned to his home, he did not find Nawangsih Nawangwulan and their children. Jaka Tarub seek shouting calling Nawangwulan, who sought nevertheless did not reply. The sun had begun to sink. Suddenly Jake Tarub standing on the home page to see something floating toward him. He watched for a moment.
Jaka Tarub stunned. Moments later he recognized it turns out she saw was Nawangwulan carrying Nawangsih. Nawangwulan looks very pretty with fairy outfit complete with shawl. Jaka Tarub felt herself shaking. He did not expect that Nawangwulan managed to reinvent bidadarinya shirt. This means that the secret was uncovered.
"How could you do this to me Jake Tarub?" Asked Nawangwulan in a sad tone. "I'm sorry Nawangwulan", only the words that could be spoken Jake Tarub. He looked very sorry. Nawangwulan can feel how Jake Tarub helpless in front of him.
"Now you have to bear the consequences of your actions Tarub Jaka", said Nawangwulan. "I'll go back to heaven because actually I am an angel. I do not belong here ", he added. Jaka Tarub not answer. He was resigned to the decision Nawangwulan.
"You have to take care of themselves Nawangsih. From this moment we are not married anymore, "he said firmly Nawangwulan. He was handed over to hug Jake Tarub Nawangsih. The boy was still asleep. He did not realize that soon her mother would leave her.
"Whatever your fault Jake Tarub me, Nawangsih still my son. If he wants to see me someday, burn rice straw, then I will go down to see him, "said Nawangwulan staring Nawangsih face. "Only one condition, you should not be together Nawangsih when I saw her. Let him alone near the rice stalks were burned, "continued Nawangwulan.
Jaka Tarub restrain her grief very. She wants to look tough. After Jaka Tarub expressed his readiness not to meet again with Nawangwulan, the bidadaripun flew himself and Nawangsih. Jaka Tarub could only stare at the departure Nawangwulan clasping Nawangsih. It was unforgivable mistake. There is no other thing to do today besides taking care Nawangsih well as messages Nawangwulan
