His tongue was like the sound of a stream, like the sound of birds, forest deep… There is a fairy in the sky called beautiful flowers, snow-white, lips like spring peaches, two cheeks blushed pink like a peach. One day she heard the sound of Hmong flute then followed the wind to escape to heaven to find someone blowing the lips. After that fell in love with Hmong man, Then she decided to stay in this land with her husband. Years later they have a pretty boy.

One day the Jade Emperor discovered that she had escaped to the world. That makes the emperor ridiculously angry. Then he orders his servant descend to the land and bring the princess back to heaven. But her child still very small. She begged for her to stay in the nursery but no one relented. Felling husband alone to feed her child, her son’s milk lacking milk. After that, she decided to left her pair of breasts under the sub-world breastfeeding.
