So, that night, the Mole burrowed his way underground to where the girl was in bed asleep and took her heart. He came back by the same way and gave the heart to the man, who could not see it even when it was put in his hand. "There," said the Mole, "Swallow it, and she will be drawn to come to you and cannot keep away."
The man swallowed the heart, and when the girl woke up she somehow thought at once of him, and felt a strange desire to be with him, as though she must go to him at once. She wondered and could not understand it, because she had always disliked him before. The feeling grew so strong that she was compelled to go herself to the man and tell him she loved him and wanted to be his wife.
And so they were married, but all the conjurers, who had known them both before, were surprised and wondered how it had come about. When they found it was the work of the Mole, whom they had always before thought too insignificant for their notice, they were very jealous and threatened to kill him, so that he hid himself under the ground and never dared to come up to the surface.
