She did so, and when it was night the others came from hunting, and their dinner was ready. And as they were sitting at table, and eating, they asked, "What news is there?" Said Benjamin, "Don't you know anything?" "No," they answered. He continued, "You have been in the forest and I have stayed at home, and yet I know more than you do." "Tell us then," they cried. He answered, "But promise me that the first maiden who meets us shall not be killed." "Yes," they all cried, "she shall have mercy, only do tell us."

她照着做了,到了晚上,其他人打猎回来了,他们的晚餐已经准备好。当他们坐在桌子前一边吃一边问道,“有什么新闻吗?”本杰明说,“你们都不知道点儿什么吗?”“不知道。”他们回答。他接着说,“你们去了森林里,而我留在家里,但是我还是知道的比你们多呢。”“那就告诉我们吧。”他们叫起来。他答道,“但是,你们得答应我,第一个遇到我们的少女不会被杀掉。”“好吧,”他们全都叫道,“她会得到宽恕,只要你告诉我们。”


Then said he, "Our sister is here," and he lifted up the tub, and the King's daughter came forth in her royal garments with the golden star on her forehead, and she was beautiful, delicate and fair. Then they were all rejoiced, and fell on her neck, and kissed and loved her with all their hearts.

然后他说,“我们的妹妹在这里。”接着他掀起那个桶,那国王的女儿走上前,穿着王室衣服,前额上有个金星,而且她很漂亮、很精致、很白皙。他们全都兴高采烈,又是搂着她脖子,又是亲吻她,他们都用自己的全部心意爱着她。


Now she stayed at home with Benjamin and helped him with the work. The eleven went into the forest and caught game, and deer, and birds, and wood-pigeons that they might have food, and the little sister and Benjamin took care to make it ready for them. She sought for the wood for cooking and herbs for vegetables, and put the pans on the fire so that the dinner was always ready when the eleven came. She likewise kept order in the little house, and put beautifully white clean coverings on the little beds, and the brothers were always contented and lived in great harmony with her.

于是,她和本杰明留在家里,帮他做家务。其他11个去森林里捕捉猎物、鹿、鸟类、鸽子等他们可以吃的东西,而小妹妹和本杰明就负责为大家做饭。她去找木柴来煮饭,采摘植物做蔬菜,把锅温在火上,以便那11人回来时总是有备好的晚餐。同时,她还保持房间的整洁,给所有小床铺上干净漂亮的白色床罩,哥哥们一直都很满意,他们和她非常和谐地生活在一起。


Once on a time the two at home had prepared a beautiful entertainment, and when they were all together, they sat down and ate and drank and were full of gladness. There was, however, a little garden belonging to the bewitched house wherein stood twelve lily flowers, which are likewise called students. She wished to give her brothers pleasure, and plucked the twelve flowers, and thought she would present each brother with one while at dinner. But at the self-same moment that she plucked the flowers the twelve brothers were changed into twelve ravens, and flew away over the forest, and the house and garden vanished likewise. And now the poor maiden was alone in the wild forest, and when she looked around, an old woman was standing near her who said, "My child, what hast thou done? Why didst thou not leave the twelve white flowers growing? They were thy brothers, who are now for evermore changed into ravens." The maiden said, weeping, "Is there no way of delivering them?"

有一次,留在家里的两个人准备了一个很好的娱乐游戏,当他们全部在一起的时候,他们围坐着边吃边喝充满欢乐。这座施有巫术的房子有一个小花园,花园里长着12株百合花,同样也叫做学生(不通,求指点)。她想要让哥哥们高兴,就摘下了这12朵花,希望在晚餐的时候可以送给每个哥哥一朵。但是,就在她采下这些花的同时,12个哥哥都变成了大乌鸦,从森林的上空飞走了,与此同时,房子和花园也消失了。这时候,这个可怜的少女独自站在野外森林里,当她环顾四周的时候,一位老妇人站在她近旁说道,“我的孩子,你都干了些什么啊?为什么不让那12枝白色花朵好好生长呢?他们是你的哥哥啊,可从今后他们变成乌鸦了。”这姑娘哭着说,“没有能解救他们的办法了吗?”
