All who poke in the ashes (the daughter, the woman, the preacher, etc.) must keep saying “Fiddevav”, until they are released from the magic. An old woman gives the hero a magic stone and advises him to, go to the peasant's house at night, to say nothing, but ”Thanks” and to lay the stone in the ashes. The stone prevents fire from being made and all who try to make it stick to the poker. The hero gets the peasant's daughter in return for release.
