 Her mother one night sat up to watch, and saw them, and struck at them, - and they all turned into plumstones! So the naughtiness of that little girl was found out. After that she became a very good girl indeed.


There is also a story told about a lazy little girl, who used to eat plums, and afterward hide the plum-stones between the flor-mats. For a long time she was able to do this without being found out. But at last the fairies got angry and punished her.

For every night, tiny, tiny women - all wearing bright red robes with very long sleves, - rose up from the floor at the same hour, and danced, and made faces at her and prevented her from sleeping.
