The huntsman consented and led her away, but when he drew his lance to pierce Snow-White's innocent heart, she began to weep, and to say,  »Oh, dear huntsman, do not take my life;  I will go away into the wild wood, and never come home again.«  And as she was so lovely the huntsman had pity on her, and said,  »Away with you then, poor child.« 

Just at that moment a young stag came running by, so he caught and killed it, and taking out its lungs and liver, he brought it to the queen for a token.  And it was salted and cooked, and the wicked woman ate it up, thinking that there was an end of Snow-White.
