Once upon a time, in a village nestled in the heart of nature, lived a blond-haired girl, an embroiderer named Colbrune, who felt like marrying Bjorn, the tailor living across her house. The young man accepted her proposal but on one condition : Colbrune was to make an embroidered belt identical to the one his mother once gave him. Unfortunately the task was awfully difficult and Colbrune did not feel up to it. One day, she happened to help a stranger who had lost his way. To thank her, the passing lord gave her a belt that was the exact replica of Bjorn's mother's belt. But he too laid down a condition: Colbrune had to remember his name, Heidebic de Hel. If in a year's time she had forgotten it, she would belong to him forever.... Written by
