In the evening, Pheelamilo would go to the stream to swim. He noticed that the monkeys always returned to the forest after destroying the farms. Meanwhile, the king was getting more worried.
On the third day, Pheelamilo woke up very early and went to the stream. He observed the monkeys.
He discovered that they drank water before crossing to destroy the maize. They drank again before retiring to the forest.
The chief monkey arrived first. He drank water, ate maize and then climbed up a tree.
The other monkeys went to the farms. The chief alerted the others if someone approached. They would all flee. He would leave last.
People were becoming more worried.
“I will give a herd of cattle also, to whoever will drive away these monkeys,” the king promised.
