"I do not want to leave you, but I have to. I must go back to where I belong. Please, sometimes think of me", she said to the old man and woman. She also wrote a good-bye letter to the Emperor. After that, the nymphs put a cloak from the Moon on her shoulders and suddenly the Bamboo Princess forgot everything about her life on earth. Then she returned to the moon with the nymphs.
