Once Minli got to the city, she had a very nice conversation with a boy that she had just met. They went into his very small hut and talked about his buffalo and the palace for awhile.
Once Minli wakes up again in the morning, she finds the dragon and they continue their journey to find the man of the moon. They go to the palace and find the king to ask him where to find the man of the moon.
Minli and the dragon get the information needed from the king and then they find the old man of the moon which they've wanted.
Minli asked the old man of the moon how to bring fortune into her house but he said that sometimes you don't have to please everyone, you just have to make them try and understand yourself.
So Minli went home and tried to make her parents understand. She took the dragon as well and they accepted her.
The dragon made the village happy and they loved watching over him. Minli's parents were so proud of her.
