And the princess's heart grew light again, and she sat down gaily to milk them, as if she had done it every morning of her life. Without saying a word, the princess swung her into Sunlight's saddle, and leaping up behind her, they were off like a flash. Nothing now remained to be done but to drive the whole stud to the emperor's court. Even though, apparently, fairytales are for girls. At length, when she had come to the end of everything she could think of, she said to him one day: 'Grant me, Sire, just one request more, and then I will really marry you; for you have waited patiently this long time. But he flung his arms round her and pressed her to his heart saying, 'Now I see that you are as brave as the bravest, and as wise as the wisest. Then he gave her his blessing, and she touched her horse with the spur. The emperor received Iliane with all the respect that was due to her, and fell in love at first sight besides. As he came on, with his sabre lifted high in the air, Sunlight bounded right over his head, so that the sword fell harmless. The brave girl's heart almost stopped beating from joy, as she set about her preparations. Still trembling from the long struggle, she turned away, and went to the meadow where the stud were feeding. Checking her horse, she asked whether it would be better to take it or let it lie. Then she turned him round, and urging him to his fullest speed, never drew rein till she saw the gates of the palace rising before her. His strange death, which no one could explain, made a great sensation throughout the country, and the funeral his people gave him was the most splendid ever known. But fear nothing, for the hour of the emperor has struck.

By this time the emperor, on hearing where she was, joined her in the yard, and at her request ordered the mares to be milked, so that both he and she might bathe in the milk and keep young for ever.

The genius, half crazy with love, thinks of nothing night and day but how this can be done, and meanwhile she is quite safe in the island swamps of the sea. The appearance of the wolf was so sudden and so unexpected, that the girl was almost paralysed, and never even dreamt of flight, till the horse leaped violently to one side.

The girl's eyes filled with tears, and she stood gazing at him. Still trembling from the long struggle, she turned away, and went to the meadow where the stud were feeding.

And now the deer can roam the forest, my arrows will never pierce his heart; strange soldiers will set fire to my houses and water their horses at my wells, and my arm cannot hinder them. They only consisted of some boy's clothes, a small quantity of linen and food, and a little money in case of necessity. Never have you given me one moment's pain. So the princess came down from the tree and mounted Sunlight, while the stud followed meekly after, the wounded horse bringing up the rear. I have but just returned from doing your bidding, and, behold, you send me on another mission, and stake my head on its fulfilment, when your court is full of valiant young men, pining to win their spurs. She was soon out of sight, and if after a few miles she had not pulled up to allow her escort to join her, the rest of the journey would have been performed alone. There she met two Genii who had been fighting fiercely for two years, without one having got the least advantage over the other. When this happens, only one of the nuns remains on guard at a time, and if we are lucky enough to hit upon this moment, we may get hold of the vase at once; if not, we shall have to wait the arrival of the hermit, however long it may be; for there is no other means of obtaining the holy water. But the old woman seized hold of the branches and flung herself like a monkey from one to the others, and always she drew nearer—always, always—till their hair was singed by the flames of her mouth. You know what? And as for the vase of holy water, she thought that, in common politeness, her suitor ought to have fetched it himself, which he could have done without any risk at all. She longed to get down and bathe her face in the clear pools, and pick the brilliant flowers, but the horse said 'No,' and quickened his pace, neither turning to the right or the left. Which of all the white-headed boyards shall I choose as counsellor? It was very clever of her, but unluckily the horse had warned the princess what to expect, and when the house was silent, she stole very softly to the genius's room, and exchanged his faded flowers for those she held. By the time she reached the emperor's court, Fet-Fruners looked a young man all over in the eyes of everyone; and even the mother of the genius would now have had her doubts set at rest.

But the years have chilled my blood and drunk my strength. But this did not seem to please Iliane, whose face was sad as she walked about the palace or gardens, wondering how it was that, while other girls did as they liked, she was always in the power of someone whom she hated.
