Once upon a time there was a miller who had a beautiful daughter
"If a respectable suitor comes and asks for her hand in marriage, I will give her to him."
Not long afterward a suitor came who appeared to be very rich, and because the miller could find no fault with him, he promised his daughter to him. The girl, however, did not like him as much as a bride should like her bridegroom. She did not trust him, and whenever she saw him or thought about him, she felt within her heart a sense of horror.
take her, you can have her
I don't know where your house is
My house is out in the dark woods. Next Sunday you must come out to me. I have already invited guests. I will make a trail of ashes, so that you can find your way through the woods.
You are engaged to marry me, but you have never once paid me a visit.
When Sunday came, and it was time for the girl to start on her way, she became frightened, although she herself did not know exactly why. In order to mark the path, she filled both her pockets full of peas and lentils. At the entrance of the forest there was a trail of ashes, which she followed, but at every step she threw a couple of peas to the ground,
She walked almost the whole day until she came to the middle of the woods, where it was the darkest, and there stood a solitary house. She did not like it, because it looked so dark and sinister.
