Di negeri Peri, gelang mutiara sedang disukai. Para Peri berlomba-lomba memiliki gelang terbagus. Suatu hari, Peri Novi pulang dari toko perhiasan dengan lesu. “Kakak, gelang yang aku inginkan sudah terjual,” kata Peri Novi sedih. “Pasti kau akan mendapatkan gantinya nanti,” hibur Peri Dinda. Peri Dinda membuatkan makanan kesukaan Peri Novi untuk membuat adiknya bersemangat lagi. “Terima kasih, Kakak!” seru Peri Novi memeluk Peri Dinda, dia tidak lagi sedih. (In Fairy Land, fairies are currently crazy about pearl bracelets. They compete with each other in owning the most beautiful bracelet. One day, Novi the Fairy goes home from the jewelry store looking sad. “Sister, the bracelet that I want is sold,” she said. “You’ll get another one later,” consoles Dinda the Fairy. Dinda makes Novi’s favorite food to cheer her up. “Thanks, Sis!” says Novi hugging Dinda. She’s not sad anymore.)

Keesokan harinya, Peri Novi terkejut ketika membuka pintu rumah. “Kakak, aku menemukan sebuah gelang mutiara! Apakah ada yang menjatuhkan gelang miliknya di dekat pintu rumah kita?” tanya Peri Novi bingung. Peri Dinda mengayunkan tongkat ajaibnya ke gelang itu. “Sia-sia, aku tidak bisa mengetahui asal gelang ini,” katanya. (The next day, Novi is surprised when opening the door. “Sis, I found a pearl bracelet! Did someone drop a bracelet near our house?” she asks confusedly. Dinda swings her magic wand to the bracelet. “It’s useless, I can’t find out where it came from,” she said.)

Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi pergi ke rumah Peri yang memiliki koleksi 100 gelang mutiara. “Ini bukan punyaku. Ini mutiara yang sangat berharga, dan hanya didapatkan langsung dari kerang mutiara,” jelas si Peri. Peri Dinda dan Peri Novi memutuskan untuk pergi menemui si kerang mutiara. (Dinda and Novi goes to the fairy who has 100 pearl bracelets. “This is not mine. This is a very priceless pearl and can only be found from a pearl clam,” explains the fairy. Dinda and Novi decide to look for the pearl clam.)

“Ini dipesan oleh temanku Gaka si burung gagak, khusus untukmu, Peri Novi,” jawab si kerang mutiara ketika Peri Novi bertanya siapa pemilik gelang. “Oh, aku ingat pernah menolong Gaka sewaktu sayapnya terluka!” seru Peri Novi. “Benar, ini hadiah dariku,” kata seekor burung gagak sambil terbang mendekat.  “Terima kasih, Gaka, aku senang sekali! Padahal aku tidak mau kau membalas kebaikanku. Aku tak mau membuatmu merasa berhutang budi padaku!” seru Peri Novi. “Jadi karena itulah Gaka menyembunyikan jejak gelang ini,” kata Peri Dinda sambil tersenyum penuh pengertian. ( “This is ordered by my friend Gaka, the crow, only for you, Novi,” answers the pearl clam when Novi asks who the owner of the bracelet is. “Oh, I remember helping Gaka when his wings were injured!” remembers Novi. “Right, it’s a present from me,” says a crow flying closer. “Thank you Gaka, I’m so happy! I didn’t want you to pay me back. I didn’t want you to feel that you owe me!” says Novi. “So that’s why Gaka hides the bracelet’s origin,” Dinda smiles understandingly.)
