I discovered that the castle belonged to
a giant but he wasn’t at home. However,
the giant’s wife was there and she invited
me in to have some breakfast. I hadn't eaten since lunchtime the
day before, so I was starving.
I thanked her and started eating.
I smell the blood
of an Englishman.
Be he alive,
or be he dead,
I’ll grind his bones
to make my bread!”,
and I saw the giant
coming into the castle. The giant’s wife had pity
on me and hid me.
“There's no one here,"
I heard her saying.
