At dawn, Aotrom makes his rounds again, this time to extinguish the lamps. He uses his small hook to snuff out the flames, ensuring the lamps were ready for the next evening. His work is meticulous, and he takes great pride in ensuring every lamp was in perfect working order. After his work is finishd, Aotrom crawls into his bed.  He draws the curtain and places small earplugs to keep the bustle outside of his doors quiet.

His cheerful disposition and meticulous work ensures the village is always well-lit and welcoming, making him a beloved figure among the villagers. And so, every evening, as the sun set and the lamps began to glow, the villagers think of Aotrom, the impish-looking lamplighter elf, and smile.
