A long time ago and far, far away, in a land of ice and snow called Scandinavia, which is at the top of the world, a poor, poor Widow, who had an only Son battled to bring him up. After he had been confirmed, she said she couldn’t feed him any longer and that he must go out and earn his own bread. So the lad wandered out into the world, and when he had walked a day or so, a strange man met him.
The man asked what he was about. The boy told him and the man offered him a position where he would be cared for. “You’ll only have to keep me company, and do nothing at all else beside.” So the boy agreed and went to live in the man’s house. There they lived on the fat of the land, both in meat and drink, and had little or nothing to do.
One day the man said: “I’m going off for eight days, and that time you’ll have to spend here all alone; but you must not go into any one of these four rooms here. If you do, your life will be forfeit.” To this the boy agreed. Even so, once the man went away, he went into the first room. What did he see? Also, what happened when the man returned you ask…? Well many things happened, some silly and some serious.
