This is a pretty love story about Chang and Mei. Mei is one of the seven sisters that makes the night sky. Chang is a farmer that works and lives all alone. They are both sad and lonely. The magpies come up with a way for the two to unite and be happy with one another. Without Mei the sisters cannot finish the night sky in time, so she must return. She misses Chang alot, and her tears create the milky way. The magpies find a way for them to reunite once a year. This explains the two bright stars seen on the seventh day of the seventh month.
