The Ragamuffin—Lu tignusu

And so he married her, because he really had loved her very much, and all the members of the household loved her more dearly than the pupils of their eyes. Yes, she had played a nasty trick on him, causing his three wives to die, and yet he married her, because she was as beautiful as the sun, with a braid of hair as bright as gold. And it was because she was a fairy that she had done all those remarkable things. So they were married, and lived happy and content, and we are left here without a cent. Collected from Ninfa Lobaido by Salvatore Salomone-Marino at Borgetto.
