Below is the second part of "The Daughter of the Sun and the Moon."

Frog returned to Earth the same way he had left. He immediately went to tell Kia the good news.

"If you delivered it, then where is the reply?" Kia asked.

"I don't know," said Frog. "But I do know that Lord Sun read it. If you write another letter asking for an answer, I will again deliver it."

So Kia did. And Frog went back to heaven in the same way and left the letter on the table.

Lord Sun read Kia's letter and wrote back. Lord Sun said he would approve the marriage only if Kia came in person and brought a gift.

Kia was overjoyed when Frog returned with this reply. But the problem was again, how would Kia get to heaven?

Kia gave Frog a gift of gold coins to bring to Lord Sun, and Frog went to deliver the gift in his usual way. After Frog arrived, he waited until everyone was asleep, then tiptoed into the daughter's room.

Frog brought with him a magic needle and thread. He gently sewed the daughter's eyes shut. It was magical, so the daughter felt no pain.

When the daughter awoke and could not open her eyes, her worried parents sent messengers down to Earth to ask Doctor Ngombo for advice. Frog got back to Earth first by way of the helpers' bucket, and he raced over to the doctor's hut as fast as he could.

Luckily, the doctor had stepped away. So when Lord Sun and Lady Moon's messengers arrived, Frog hid behind the door and pretended to be the doctor.

Frog told the messengers to send the daughter to Earth for treatment at once. The messengers did as they were told.

Kia and the daughter fell in love instantly.

When the daughter arrived, Frog snipped the magical thread away, and she could see perfectly! He then took her to Kia's hut. When they met, Kia and the daughter fell in love instantly. Frog, who did not like to be thanked, quickly hopped away. The lovers got married, and everyone was happy!
