Hey there! I'm Yunus Djulung. My mother is the girl from The Bones of Djulung.
My mother was the youngest of seven sisters, and she had to chop firewood for her sisters. One day, she caught a fish named Djulung-djulung. She fed the fish and kept him as a pet, but one day her sisters caught him and cooked him. She then took his bones and planted them. Out grew a tree with an iron trunk, silk leaves, gold flowers, and diamond fruits. One day, a leaf blew across the sea to the king. The king went over to the sisters' island and asked the sisters about the tree. The oldest six didn't know about it, but Mom did. The king then married her.
I'm doing pretty good here - in a nice home with my family. I've got two older brothers and an older sister. I go to Ever After High, which is far from my home. My home country is near the equator, so it's very hot there. It's not as warm here, and I get homesick sometimes, but it's a great place.
One thing I'm good at is chopping firewood, which I do during the colder months to keep warm. i also plant trees to replace the ones I cut down. I am also friendly with fish and keep a few fish in a tank. I talk to them when I'm bored, and I bring them rice. I try to be careful, since I don't want to eat fish I know personally. I enjoy food as well, though I do exercise to keep from getting too heavy. My aunts always complain that I'm too thin. I love exercising - it's really fun and it keeps me going. You can often find me doing pilates outside.
I'm pretty down-to-earth as well and don't mind living in the woods, though of course over here I stay in a dorm. I decorate my room with a lot of nature-themed stuff.
I would definitely love to continue my mother's story, so I am a Royal.
