ఒక తోటలో మూడు సీతాకోక చిలుకలు ఉండేవి. అవి ఎంతో మంచి స్నేహితులు. అందులో ఒకటి ఎరుపుగా, మరొకటి పసుపుగా, వేరొకటి తెల్లగా ఉండేవి. ప్రతిరోజూ కలిసి ఆడుకుంటూ ఉండేవి. ఒకనాడు అవి ఆడుకుంటుండగా మబ్బులు పట్టి, బాగా గాలి వీచింది. కాసేపటికి పెద్దగా వర్షం కురవడం మొదలైంది. సీతాకోక చిలుకలు తడిచిపోతున్నాయి. ఇదంతా అక్కడ ప్రొద్దు తిరుగుడు పువ్వు గమనిస్తుంది. సీతాకోక చిలుకలు దానిని సహాయం కోరాయి. కానీ అది మాత్రం దానికి ఇష్టమైన ఎరుపు, పసుపు సీతాకోక చిలుకలకు మాత్రమే నివాసం ఇస్తానన్నది. తమలో ఒకరిని విడిచివేయుట ఇష్టం లేక అక్కడ నుండి వచ్చేశాయి. తర్వాత తెలుపు లిల్లీ కనిపించింది. లిల్లీని ఆశ్రయం కోసం అర్థించగా, లిల్లీ తనకు ఇష్టమైన తెలుపు రంగు సీతాకోక చిలుకకు మాత్రమే సహాయం చేస్తాను అంటుంది. తన స్నేహితులను అలా వదిలేయడం ఇష్టం లేక లిల్లీ సహాయాన్ని నిరాకరిస్తాయి. ఇదంతా సూర్యుడు గమనించాడు. వాటి మధ్య ప్రేమ, ఆప్యాయతలు చూసి మేఘాలను తరిమేస్తాడు. దీనితో ఆ మూడు సీతాకోక చిలుకలు తమ రెక్కలను ఆరబెట్టుకొని మళ్ళీ సంతోషంగా జీవించసాగాయి.
