And when they came to the third brook the sister heard how it said as it ran, "Who drinks of me will be a roebuck; who drinks of me will be a roebuck." The sister said, "Oh, I pray you, dear brother, do not drink, or you will become a roebuck, and run away from me." But the brother had knelt down at once by the brook, and had bent down and drunk some of the water, and as soon as the first drops touched his lips he lay there a young roebuck.

当他们来到第三条小溪时,姐姐听到小溪说:“谁喝我就会变成一头雄獐(小鹿,注:獐属于鹿科动物,这里是否能叫小鹿呢?),谁喝我就会变成一头雄獐(小鹿)。”姐姐说:“哦!我求你,亲爱的弟弟,别喝,不然你会变成一头雄獐(小鹿),会从我身边跑走的。”但是小弟弟一看到小溪就跪在小溪边,弯下腰去喝水了,嘴唇刚碰到几滴水,趴在那里的他就变成了一头幼獐(小鹿)。

And now the sister wept over her poor bewitched brother, and the little roe wept also, and sat sorrowfully near to her. But at last the girl said, "Be quiet, dear little roe, I will never, never leave you."

现在看到可怜的弟弟中了魔法,小姐姐哭了起来,小獐(鹿)也坐在她的身边伤心地哭着。最后,小姑娘说道:“亲爱的小獐(鹿),安静下来,我永远,永远不会离开你的。”

Then she untied her golden garter and put it round the roebuck's neck, and she plucked rushes and wove them into a soft cord. With this she tied the little beast and led it on, and she walked deeper and deeper into the forest.

她解下她的金色吊袜带,系在雄獐(小鹿)的脖子上,接着她拔了一些茅草编织一根软绳。她给小獐拴上这根绳子,牵着它向森林的深处走去。

And when they had gone a very long way they came at last to a little house, and the girl looked in; and as it was empty, she thought, "We can stay here and live." Then she sought for leaves and moss to make a soft bed for the roe; and every morning she went out and gathered roots and berries and nuts for herself, and brought tender grass for the roe, who ate out of her hand, and was content and played round about her. In the evening, when the sister was tired, and had said her prayer, she laid her head upon the roebuck's back: that was her pillow, and she slept softly on it. And if only the brother had had his human form it would have been a delightful life.

他们走了很远的路,最后来到一个小房子前,小女孩看见房里很空,她想“我们可以留在这,住在这里。”她找来许多树叶和苔癣,给小獐(鹿)铺了一张柔软的床。每天早晨她出去,为自己采集草根、浆果和坚果,还给小獐(鹿)带回来一些嫩草。小獐(鹿)吃着她手里的草,总是高兴地围着她跳来跳去。晚上,累了一天的小姐姐做完祈祷后,便把头靠在小鹿的背上,像靠着枕头一样安静地睡觉。要是她的弟弟还保持着人的形状,这种生活倒也挺美!
