Lady of the Black Bull

When the Black Bull came and carried me away, I was terrified. He did me no harm, though. At the end of the day, he landed me in a bonny big castle. The next morning, the good people of the castle gave me an apple. They told me not to break into it unless I found myself in the worst situation that any mortal could ever be in.

I hope the apple will never have to be cut open or eaten. Let it remain perfect forever!
