The man asked her did she see any hare coming in. She said that she did not and that he could not come in without she seeing him. Then he asked her what happened her that she was covered with blood. She did not answer for a long time Then she said, "forgive me I will never do anything to you or to any body else again/ The man asked her then was she the hare and she said "yes".
