>Long ago, beyond the woods, through the forests and the pass, in the deep mountains of Japan, there lived 'Aka-Oni'; a red Ogre, and 'Ao-Oni', a blue Ogre. The red Ogre liked human children very much and he was always thinking about how he could make friends with them everyday.
>The Red Ogre wanted to become friends with children in a village nearby. So, the Red Ogre invited the children to come to his house to play.
>But no one showed up, and the red ogre grew puzzled, sad, and angry. "I'm such a kind ogre - why would nobody visit me?"
>Moved by his friend's feelings, the Blue Ogre said, "Look, I have a plan."
>The Blue Ogre's plan was for him to pretend to terrorize children and then have the red ogre chase him off, "rescuing" them from him. The plan went without a hitch, and the red ogre became the most popular creature among the children, and all came to play with him.
>After a happy day of enjoying the children's company, the Red Ogre found a letter from the Blue Ogre. The letter said, "My Dear Red Ogre, if people find out that you are a friend of the Bad Blue Ogre's, they will not let the children come to you any more. So, I'm leaving. Please live happily with the children. Goodbye. Blue Ogre."
>The Red Ogre cried out, "Blue Ogre is gone! A dear friend of mine! He is gone!" And he wept.
>The Red Ogre and the Blue Ogre were never to see each other again.
Maybe Hiro not being the Blue Oni isn't so bad after all.
