Terdengar suara seruling merdu dari rumah Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi. Mereka sedang berlatih untuk tampil di konser musik peri. Tapi, latihan Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi mengalami kesulitan. “Novi, coba mainkan partitur musik dengan benar,” tegur Peri Dinda, kakak Peri Novi. “Aku lebih suka dipercepat!” seru Peri Novi. “Tidak boleh.  Patuhi tanda birama yang ada. Kita lanjutkan latihan besok,” kata Peri Dinda.

(The beautiful sound of the flute is heard from the house of Dinda the fairy and Novi the fairy. They are rehearsing before performing in the fairies music concert. But, their rehearsal stumbles into a problem. “Novi, why don’t you play the tunes correctly,” says Dinda, Novi’s big sister. “I want to make it faster!” says Novi. “No you may not. Stick to the tempo guides. We’ll continue our rehearsal tomorrow,” says Dinda.)

Peri Novi pergi berjalan-jalan agar hatinya tenang. “Musik yang kita latih lebih bagus berirama cepat. Mengapa Kakak tak mengerti?” gerutu Peri Novi. Peri Novi sampai di sebuah sungai yang tenang. Di kanan kiri sungai  tumbuh pohon dedalu yang mengayun pelan terkena angin sepoi-sepoi. “Menyenangkan sekali suasana di sini!” kata Peri Novi. Kenyamanan tempat itu membuat kemarahan Peri Novi hilang. Dia jadi merasa bersalah pada Peri Dinda.

(Novi goes for a stroll to ease up her mind. “The music we’re playing would sound better had the tempo is faster. Why can’t she understand?” Novi grudges. Novi comes across a quaint river. Beside the river are shrubs that wave along with the gentle breeze. “It’s really pleasant here!” says Novi. The place’s tranquility eases Novi’s temper. She then felt sorry for what she did to Dinda.)

Keesokan harinya, Peri Novi mengajak Peri Dinda latihan musik di tempat nyaman yang ditemukannya kemarin. Peri Novi dan Peri Dinda memulai latihan mereka. Peri Novi memainkan seruling dengan tenang dan penuh penghayatan. “Bagus sekali!” ucap Peri Dinda senang dengan permainan seruling Peri Novi. “Kakak, berada di sini aku sadar. Sungai, pohon dedalu, dan angin saling mendukung untuk membentuk keindahan, seperti sebuah konser musik. Tidak boleh ada permainan semaunya seperti permainan serulingku kemarin!” kata Peri Novi.

(The next day, Novi takes Dinda to rehearse their music at the quaint place she found the day before. Novi and Dinda begin their rehearsal. Novi plays the flute slowly, expressing her emotions. “That’s very good!” says Dinda, entertained by Novi’s performance. “Sister, being here I realized. The river, trees, and the breeze together form a harmony, just like a concert. There shouldn’t be any erratic tunes like what I did with the flute yesterday!” says Novi.)

Akhirnya, konser musik peri tiba. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi bersiap memainkan seruling. Tapi tiba-tiba langit jadi gelap, membuat penonton ketakutan. “Ayo, usir awan gelap itu dengan kekuatan ajaib dari musik yang kita mainkan!” kata Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi, memberi semangat teman-teman peri mereka yang siap dengan alat musik masing-masing. Para peri memainkan musik dengan kompak dan harmonis. Ajaib! Awan gelap hilang. Penonton pun tersenyum gembira.

(Finally, the fairies’ music concert begins. Dinda and Novi plays the flute.  But suddenly, the sky turns dark and the audiences are getting afraid. “Come on, let’s shoo the dark clouds with the magical music we’re playing!” ask Dinda and Novi to the other fairies joining the ensemble.  The fairies play a harmonious music, and miraculously, the dark clouds fade away! The audiences are back with their happy smiles.)
