Unable to take any more of seeing her books being treated like this, Luh Ayu Manik transformed herself into Luh Ayu Manik Mas and prepared to fight the demons herself. The wild pig then said, “Hey, Luh Ayu Manik Mas. How come you don't pay us any attention? We are being eaten by moths and termites! So my friends and I have now decided to come out from these books. We are very unhappy being in this place. Not only are we not read, we're not even picked up and cleaned! What's the point of people just having books without any intention of reading or looking after them?”
