Karitoki told his friends about his beautiful wife, but since no one had seen, did not believe him. Then the wise village elder, who knew of the existence of the sirens, advised Karitoki feed pany simple earthly food, then the siren no longer be allowed pany into the ocean. At night, when sleep pany, Karitoki put it in his mouth a piece of food, but saw it from the top of the tree owl screamed and woke pany. The girl managed to spit out the food and horrified by what Karitoki subjected her to such danger and deceived, dived into the water and swam in the ocean. More Karitoki never seen her.
