One fateful day their curiosity led them to follow the north star.
But on their way there was a terrible accident – and Arie was mortally wounded.
The drummer boy could not contain his pain.
Desperate, he carried her through the streets in search of help, hoping for a miracle.
He encountered three wise men, who were also following the north star to bring gifts to a new born king.
The boy pleaded for their help.
But the magi told him to seek out the new born king, “He is the one to help you.”
“But I have no gift to give, I am poor and I can’t come empty handed,” he replied.
The wise men insisted.
Hesitant, the boy approached the crib.
He gazed upon the infant king and like a flash he started to play his tambourine like he had never played it before.
The boy turned, and to his great joy Ariel’s eyes slowly opened – a miracle!
They embraced and returned to the woods.
