She grew up there into a very beautiful maiden. When she was 15, the baron came about their place with his friends seeking some water. Drawing her fortune, the baron realized this is the same girl who he had tried to kill. He gave a closed letter and asked the girl to take it to his brother far away. The message was to kill the bearer. On the way, the inn she was staying in was raided by some thieves who found out about the letter. The chief of the thieves replaced the letter and asked the bearer to be married to the baron's son. And so it was done. But was this enough to change fate? Will the baron give up?

Written by: Flora Annie Steel Once upon a time, there was a farmer and his wife, who had only one child. A young boy who had returned home from his travels pursued her. Every evening, he'd stop at the farmhouse for supper, and the daughter would go down into the basement to get the apple juice for supper. One day, when she looked up at the ceiling, she noticed a large wooden hammer stuck in one of the beams. Then she imagined what would happen if her future son came down one day and the hammer fell on his head, killing him. With that thought, she began to cry. One by one, the mother and father came down to see what she was doing. Even they couldn't hold back their tears when they learned about all this. Now that the young boy upstairs had had enough, he went down into the basement to see what they were all after. They all told him about the horrifying possibilities of his future son dying because of a hammer. The young boy burst out laughing at this. He then reached up and took the old hammer from the shelf, placing it safely on the floor. He went on to say that he traveled a lot but had never met anyone as silly as the three of them.

Written by: Flora Annie Steel Once upon a time, a boy named Jack lived with his mother who got her living by spinning. But Jack was very lazy and did nothing, so people called him Lazy Jack.  Finally, Jack got some work for a day on a farm but he lost his earnings of a penny on the way. His mother suggested he keep his earnings in his pocket for next time. The next day Jack hired himself to a cow keeper, who gave him a jar of milk for his day's work. Jack put the jar in his pocket, spilling it all before he got home. The mother then suggested carrying it on his head. Jack continued to hire himself, squandering all of his earnings until one day he received a donkey and was carrying it back home on his shoulders. He walked past a mansion where a wealthy man lived with his deaf and dumb daughter. She had never laughed before, and the doctors predicted that she would not speak until she was made to laugh. As a result, her father had declared that any man who could make her laugh would be given her hand in marriage. When the lady looked out the window, she noticed Jack with the donkey on his shoulders, and the sight was so amusing that she burst out laughing, regaining her speech and hearing almost immediately. Her father was overjoyed and fulfilled his promise by marrying her to Lazy Jack, who was thus made a rich gentleman. They lived in a large house, and Jack's mother lived with them in great happiness.
