Mikko got a little mouse as his sweetheart. Their father instructed them to tell their sweethearts to make them each a fine cloth. Mikko`s brother`s sweetheart made him nice and pretty piece of cloth. The mouse (Mikko`s sweetheart) made him a beautiful piece of cloth also. Their father judged both the cloth`s and the mouse made the finer cloth. The day of the wedding came, when his brother saw Mikko`s sweetheart in her small nutshell carriage he kicked her and the other mice into the river. Mikko screamed at his brother "What did you do I loved her!" To Mikko and his brothers`s surprise, a carriage and four black horses came out of the river. Out of the carriage stepped a beautiful princess. She told Mikko, "A witch enchanted me, and the spell could be broken only by one brother who wanted to marry me and another who wanted to kill me."
