As she left, she threw an apple to Connla, and instantly she disappeared,
and the king and his company no longer heard her voice.
The king and his son went home, and Connla did not eat any food nor dring
anything except the apple for an entire month. And although he ate from the
apple every day, it did not become less, but it was as whole at the end of the
month as it was at the beginning. Moreover, when they offered him anything
at all to eat or drink, he refused it; for as long as he had the apple, he

will no longer have power to work their deceitful magic spells."
Now the king noticed that his son didn't ever speak a word to anyone when
the woman was present, even if they spoke to him again and again. And when
the woman had stopped talking, the king said:
"Connla, my son, do the woman's words move your heart?"
Then Connla said, "Father, I am very unhappy, for although I love my
people above anything else, nevertheless, I am full of sorrow because of this
