Suasana Kerajaan Bunga sedang sedih. Beberapa hari ini, Ratu Bunga mengurung diri dalam kamarnya. Tak ada yang tahu penyebabnya. Tiap malam, rakyat Kerajaan Bunga selalu mendengar tangisan sang ratu. (The Flower Kingdom is feeling blue. This past few days, the Flower Queen locks herself in her room. No one knows why. Every night, the people of Flower Kingdom would hear the Queen’s cry.)

“Perdana menteri Magnolia, ada apa dengan sang ratu?” tanya Putri Krisan, adik sang ratu. Sepuluh purnama yang lalu, ketika Putri Krisan meninggalkan istana bunga untuk menimba ilmu, kakaknya tersebut baik-baik saja. (“Prime Minister Magnolia, what has happened to the queen?” asks Princess Krisan, the queen’s sister. Ten full moons ago, when Princess Krisan left the flower palace to pursue knowledge, her sister was doing alright.)

“Hamba tidak tahu, karena beliau tidak mau berbicara sepatah kata pun pada kami,” jawab perdana menteri. Putri Krisan bergegas menuju kamar sang ratu. “Ratu… ratu… ratu… bukalah pintu kamarnya. Aku adikmu, Krisan,” seru Putri Krisan. (“I do not know, because her majesty would not speak of a single word to us,” replies the prime minister. Princess Krisan rushes to the queen’s room. “Queen… queen… queen… please open the door. I am your sister, Krisan,” says Princess Krisan.)

Lama sekali tidak terdengar jawaban dari dalam kamar, Putri Krisan pun mulai khawatir dengan kondisi kakaknya. Ketika tangannya akan kembali mengetuk pintu kamar, tiba-tiba pintu terbuka. Keluarlah sang ratu dengan raut wajah penuh kesakitan. (Many moments pass without any reply from the room, Princess Krisan is starting to worry about her sister’s condition. When her hands are about to knock the door, suddenly the door opens. Out comes the queen with a face full of agony.)

“Ratu sakit? Aku akan panggilkan tabib istana,” ujar Putri Krisan  terkejut. Belum juga melangkah, Putri Krisan sudah ditarik ke dalam kamar oleh sang ratu. “Kau tidak boleh memberitahu pada siapa pun kalau aku sedang sakit!” ucap sang ratu sedikit memekik di telinga adiknya. (“Are you ill? I will get the palace healer,” says Princess Krisan in shock. As she is about to step away, Princess Krisan is pulled inside the room by the queen. “You will not tell anyone that I am ill!” says the queen with a high pitch tone on her sister’s ear.)

“Gigiku bolong karena aku jarang sekali sikat gigi. Tidak ada yang mengingatkanku sikat gigi seusai makan, setelah kau pergi,” tutur sang ratu kepada Putri Krisan. “Aku tak mau rakyatku tahu dan mengikuti kebiasaan burukku,” lanjut ratu. Sang adik mengangguk. (“I have a tooth cavity because I seldom brush my teeth. After you went away, no one reminded me to brush after meals,” the queen tells Princess Krisan. “I do not want my people to know and follow by bad habits,” the queen adds. The sister nods.)

“Baiklah, aku akan segera membuatkan ramuan,” ujar Putri Krisan tersenyum. Sang ratu pun lantas memeluknya. Sehari setelah meminum ramuan dari sang adik, gigi sang ratu tak lagi sakit. Ia pun kembali ceria. Sang ratu keluar dari kamarnya mengenakan baju berwarna-warni. Ratu tersenyum kepada seluruh penghuni istana. Ia juga menyapa rakyatnya dari balkon istana.  (“Alright, I will make you a potion,” says Princess Krisan. The queen then hugs her. A day after she drank the potion from her sister, the queen’s tooth is no longer aching. She is happy again. The queen steps out of her room in colorful clothes. The queen smiles to everyone in the palace. She also greets her people from the palace balcony.)

“Maafkan aku, selama beberapa minggu ini membuat kalian semua sedih dan bingung. Semua ini karena aku sedang sakit. Adikku yang cantik, Krisan telah membuatkan obat untukku. Sekarang aku sudah sehat kembali,” ujar Ratu Bunga gembira. (“I am sorry, this past few weeks I have made everyone sad and confused. This is because I was ill. My beautiful sister, Krisan has made a remedy for me. Now I have regained my health,” says the happy Flower Queen.)

Rakyat Kerajaan Bunga bersorak-sorai melihat ratu mereka ceria kembali. Mereka juga gembira menyambut kedatangan Putri Krisan usai sekolah di kerajaan lain. (The people of Flower Kingdom cheer to the sight of their happy queen. They are also happy to welcome Princess Krisan who finished her studies at another kingdom.)
