Girl: If the magician gives errands, let him turn to her; turn into a pigeon, fly away. S. comes to the magician, who sits in a chair. "Lackey servants! Lift my eyelids out of my eyes with an iron pitchfork: I need to see who's here." The servants raise their eyelids, the thorn opens. The magician recognizes S., tells him to bring rum, S. refuses.

The bridge is ready in the morning The magician tells us to ride around his horse, he is fierce and ferocious.

He is worried and goes hunting to forget himself. One day she sees a house with a middle-aged woman in it. When asked by the emperor, she says that her children have gone all over the world. The emperor replies that he has no children and that he cannot live without them. The woman says she knows a healer who has every potion, but she needs a lot of money. The emperor gives a handful of gold and promises more when a child is born. The woman tells me to come in a year and goes to the healer. She replies that there is an apple tree in the imperial garden, and it has six apples, three low and three taller. They must be ripped off and let the emperor's wife eat them. A woman goes to that garden, picks apples, puts them in her bosom, but decides she'll eat them herself. He eats three and throws three to the mare. Less than a year later, she gives birth to a boy with golden hair, and a mare gives birth to a skate with a golden mane and tail. The emperor arrives, looks at the handsome boy, asks whose he is. The woman says it's hers. He asks where his son is. The woman explains that, according to the healer, the emperor's wife is important and needs a potion from three years ago. The emperor tells him to send him a boy when he grows up and has golden hair to live in the palace. My son is already big three years later. His mother sends him to the capital with his skate. The young man lives in the imperial chambers, walks in the garden, and everyone loves him. The emperor does not want another son, tells the young man to call him father, since he does not have his own father, promises to hand over the throne after his death. When the emperor and his army go to war, the wife finds a lover. The guy sees it all and walks sad. The lover persuades the Empress to get him out of the light. He promises that when a gold-haired man sits on his bed, he'll turn to dust. The guy goes to the stable to his skate. He asks why he's not happy. He replies that the emperor's wife is lying to him with a crappy man. The horse tells about the danger waiting for the owner, tells him not to sit on the bed. The young man throws his clothes on the bed, they turn to ashes. The next time, the skate tells you to take an armful of firewood when the door is opened, throw it at the door, not open the door yourself. The wood turns into a pile of ash. The Empress and lover can't figure out how to kill a guy. Meanwhile, the emperor, having defeated the king, returns. The lover invites the Empress to scratch her face, go to bed and moan, and when the emperor comes in and asks what's wrong with her, say that the guy beat her. That's what she does. The emperor promises to hang the boy tomorrow and tells three torturers to prepare a gallows. When a gold-haired man is brought under a noose, he asks the emperor for permission to say goodbye to his skate. The emperor wants him to be brought in. Ten soldiers go to the stall but die from horse hooves. A hundred soldiers go, then a thousand - the same. The gold-haired man asks permission to go by himself. He sits on a horse, jumps to the gallows. She announces that she never hit the Empress, she scratched herself because she has a lover, and he, the young man, knew about it. The horse takes off and carries the young man through the air for three days, and on the fourth he says that there is another state under them. There, the horse says he must leave the owner, but let him whistle three times and he will fly in. The guy makes a pipe, comes to the capital, walks the streets and plays. The king of that state has three beautiful daughters. They hear a pipe, the older one comes out and asks why he plays so sad, he doesn't answer, the middle one doesn't answer either, the youngest asks why he's so handsome and his pipe plays so sadly. He replies that she can play more fun if she gives him her own ring. The girl gives him a ring, takes his hand and leads him to the palace.
