North Africa. Tunisia [The woman became pregnant and the old woman predicted that she would give birth to a daughter who would suffer a lot at the beginning of her life, but then be happy for the rest of her life. That's what happened. The woman gave birth to a daughter who was very beautiful and named her Sharakat Vuduat. Her son, Sultan Qamar Az-Zaman, saw her and decided to marry her. Sharakat Vooduat had a cousin, whom she loved very much. She told her that she was getting married and her mother found out. She replaced her fiancée with her own daughter. When the prince found out about the change, he became very angry, killed his cousin Sharakat, broke the wall and ran away from the palace. Sharakat was upset about the death of her cousin, then packed up and went in search of the prince. She walked for a long time, then sat on marble. The woman on the other side told Sharakat to shake the rock and see what was under it. Gulya's daughter was there. She asked her father about the prince. Gul got angry and gouged out her eye, then Sharakat went to her middle sister, whose father cut off her arm, and told the youngest that she needed to cross seven seas and seven lands, go through the land of ghouls and horrors and get to a forgotten grave from scratch, then fill 40 jugs and 40 vats with tears. All this can only be done with a staff, clothes, and a piece of ghoul. The youngest daughter gave it all to Sharakat. She did everything, but when she was left with only one jug, she was very tired and asked a black girl to look after the jugs while she slept. The girl dug up the prince, he married her because he promised to marry the one who would be the first to get him out of the grave. Sharakat smeared tar on her face and began working as a maid in homes until she found the prince's house. She broke the first nut that her daughter Gulya gave her, and it turned out to be a beautiful necklace. She exchanged it with the prince's black wife for a night she spent with him. His wife added sleeping pills to his coffee. He didn't wake up, and it was the same on the second night. On the third, he did not drink coffee because the servant asked him why his room was crying at night. The prince just pretended to be asleep, heard everything, recognized Sharakat, they lived happily ever after]: Al-Aribi 2009, No. 85 in Korovkina MS

In the morning he wakes up, opens the window, sees that a woman is walking down the street, bringing her son to eat in a pot. The count's son, to test his accuracy, shoots at the pot and breaks it. Baba sees him laughing and says that she barely begged her son for food. She curses him to only marry Seipentel Ilona. The guy runs after his grandmother and asks where she is. She replies that where ninety-nine human heads are on the stakes, and leaves. The count's son does not find a place for himself, he is going to look for his betrothed. He sees how a bear crashes ants, feels sorry for ants, drives a bear into the thicket. Ants give him a pipe that he can use to summon them to help. The guy goes on, sees that the boys have caught a fox and hit it. He asks to keep it and pays them a crown. The fox gives him a pipe to play on, and she will come to his aid. The count's son comes to the water and sees the fish fighting. He throws bread to the fish. The fish calms down, thanks him and gives him a pipe to call for help. More often, he bumps into a hut, around 99 human heads on poles. He comes in and sees the woman he smashed the pot with on the stove. She serves him by telling him to look after her three mares. If he doesn't pull him back, his head will be on a pole. The guy falls asleep, and when he wakes up, he does not find mares. It causes ants with the help of a flute, who explain that the mares have become ants. Real ants will start biting them, then they'll start running away. When the first one runs and then the second one, you don't have to do anything, and when the third one runs, you have to whip it and say, "Be what you used to be!" That's what the guy does. In the evening, a woman checks, sees mares, gets angry and hits them with an iron club (these are her daughters). In the morning, she orders her daughters to go to the water and become fish. When the guy wakes up, he calls fish with the help of a flute. She reports that mares have become goldfish. Real fish will bite them. When the third one jumps out of the water, you should whip it and say, "Be what you were!" That's what the guy does. The woman gets angry in the evening, whips the mares with a fiery whip, accusing them of being in a romantic relationship with the guy. They deny it and tell their mother that she is wise and he is wiser. On the third day, the mares disappear again. The fox summoned by the flute explains that the woman turned them into eggs, put them in a basket on the stove, and sat on them herself. But the woman in the attic has a rooster. The fox will call the ferret, which will start chasing the rooster. The woman will get up from her eggs and climb to save the rooster. Then you have to run into the hut, whip the balls and say, "Be what you used to be!" The ferret starts chasing the rooster, the woman, when she hears a scream, climbs into the attic. The guy hits the balls, the mares are back in the barn, the guy sits on a chair. Baba is convinced that he is wiser than her. He says he served her faithfully and asks what he asks for his service. He wants to stay in service for three more years. Baba agrees, takes him to a big lake in the morning, gives him a wooden shovel, a wooden hoe, a wooden coinage, and tells this lake to fall asleep and walled up so that she can ride it on horseback, if not will do - be his head on the stake. His tools break immediately, he sits and grieves. Babina, Seipentel's daughter Ilona, brings him food and finds out the cause of his burning. After feeding him, she puts him into a deep sleep, whistling to the devils. They fall asleep and walled up the lake. When the guy wakes up, he notifies the woman, she checks, but the lake does not break through under the horse. She sends him into the thicket the next day. There, the wind scattered beech and oak seeds. They must be harvested, each seed separately. At noon, the girl brings food and finds out about the task. The guy eats up and falls asleep because Ilona sleeps on him, and she whistles, devils run, and in an hour all the seeds are collected as the woman wanted.

When he has lunch, she falls into a deep sleep, and she cries the devils like sea sand. Everything is ready by evening.

She replies that she is a mother and that she will turn herself into a mill and him into an old miller. The old woman will ask if he saw two pigeons, and he must answer what he saw a long time ago. Baba decides it's not them and comes home. SI turns them into pigeons again and they fly to its land. She asks again, and he sees a fiery cloud again. Then SI turns itself into grass and it into a braid. He tells Baba he saw two pigeons when he was clearing this field for a meadow. Baba is coming home. Two pigeons hit the road again. After a while, SI asks again who he sees. He says the woman is on a fiery horse.

But the guy wants to hear what they're talking about, sticks his head out of the water, the woman steals his eyes and comes home. The girl cries, goes like a dove behind his eyes. At home, she gives her mother and sisters a deep sleep, climbs into her mother's bosom, reaches out her eyes, and instead puts pigeon eggs so that her mother thinks when she wakes up, that her eyes are in her bosom. She flies to the riverbank and returns the guy's eyes. They fly to his village. The guy is happy, he leads the girl by the hand. She asks where he's taking her. He replies to their homestead.
