Once upon a time, not far from a jungle, lived husband and a wife. They were farmers. They were diligent farmers and always worked hard on the paddy fields. They had been married for many years and still not have a child yet. Every day they prayed and prayed for a chil

One night, while they were praying, Buto Ijo a giant with supranatural powers passed their house. He heard they pray. “Don’t worry farmers. I can give you a child. But you have to give me that child when she is 17 years old,” said Buto Ijo. The farmers were so happy. They did not think about the risk of losing their child letter and agree to take the offer. Later, Buto Ijo gave them a bunch of cucumber seeds. The farmers planted them carefully. Then the seeds changed into plants. No longer after that, a big golden cucumber grew from plants. After it had ripe, the farmers picked and cut it. They were very surprised to see beautiful girl inside the cucumber. They named her Timun Emas or Golden Cucumber. Years passed by and Timun Emas has changed into a beautiful girl. On her 17th birthday, Timun Emas was very happy.

However, the parents were very sad. They knew they had to keep their promise to Buto Ijo the giant but they also did not want to lose their beloved daughter. “My daughter, take this bag. It can save you from the giant,” said father. “What do you mean, Father? I don’t understand,” said Timun Emas.

Right after that, Buto Ijo came into their house. “Run Timun Emas. Save your life!” said the mother. Buto ijo was angry. He knew the farmers wanted to break their promise. He chased Timun Emas away. Buto Ijo was getting closer and closer. Timun Emas then opened the bag and threw a handful of salt. It became sea. Buto Ijo had to swim to cross the sea. Later, Timun Emas hrew some chilly. It became a jungle with trees. The trees had sharp thorns so they hurt Buto Ijo. However, he was still able to chase Timun Emas. Timun Emas took her third magic stuff. It was cucumber seeds. She threw them and became cucumber field. But Buto Ijo still could escape from the field. Then it was the last magic stuff she had in the bag. It was a shrimp paste or terasi. She threw it and became a big swamp. Buto Ijo was st’ill trying to swim the swamp but he was very tired. Then he was drowning and died.

Timun Emas then immediately went home. The farmers were so happy that they finally together again.
