A few days passed. One day, Bins and Megs said to Deep, “Brother, shall we go on a journey? Shall we go and see other countries of the world.” Deep said, “Are you not happy with me?.” They replied, “Yes, we are but we can explore and get lot of money. Deep finally agreed as they coaxed a lot.
The three brothers set off and travelled many lands. They came nearby a sea. Deep saw a beautiful girl sitting by a rock looking at the sea. Her eyes were blue and her lips were red like a setting sun. He said, “Oh, what a beautiful girl!” He fell in love with her and married her. She was very kind. Deep loved her very much.
They all set off in their ship. Megs and Bins did not like their brother’s wife. She will get all the money, they thought. So, one night in the middle of the sea, they tied Deep and his wife and threw them into the sea. However, Deep and his wife did not die. They were safe because Deep’s wife was a fairy! She whispered magic words and freed themselves. ‘Float on the water’, the fairy said to the magic carpet she had with her. It flew over cities and mountains, over castles and clouds. They reached a beautiful Palace.
Two Dogs were standing as guards at the gate of the castle. Deep’s wife said, “They are Bins and Megs. They are your Brothers. As they are wicked, I turned them to Dogs. Deep felt pity and begged his wife to turn them back to humans and also allow them to stay with him. Bins and Megs felt ashamed and were forgiven for their misdeeds. All of them lived in the Castle happily forever.
