  • "You have not yet paid me a visit"
  • As the day came to go to the man's house, she filled her pockets with peas and lentils to find her way back, she followed the path until she came to the darkest part of the forest and heard...
  • "Turn back, turn back, young fair maiden"
  • As the young lady entered the last room in the house she saw and very old women, whom told her to hide behind the large cask, she said "Tonight, when the robbers are all asleep, we will flee together. I have long been waiting for an opportunity to escape."
  • "As soon as they have you in their power they will kill you without mercy, and cook and eat you, for they are eaters of men."
  • The crew returned, dragging another young girl along with them. They gave her some wine to drink, and with that she died, they cut her body up and sprinkled salt upon it.
  • The young maiden and old lady were very careful as to not wake the sleeping crew. They made it safely across the sleeping men and set out and followed the path of peas she left on the way here.
  • She returned to her father and told him about the horrible things she endured, but all he said was...
  • "Its only a dream, its only a dream"
