How can I be parted with such beauty? " The Grey Wolf answered: "I won't part you with such beauty, we will hide her somewhere, I will turn myself into Elena Prekrasnaya, and you will bring me to the Tsar.
They hid Elena Prekrasnaya in a forest. The Grey Wolf turned his head and became exactly like Elena Prekrasnaya. Ivan Tsarevich took him to Tsar Kusman.
The Tsar rejoiced and began thanking him: Thankyou, Ivan Tsarevich, for you have brought to me a bride. Take the horse with the golden mane and bridle. Ivan Tsarevich sat on the horse and went for Elena Prekracnaya.He picked her up and sat her on the horse and they set out on their way. Tsar Kusman had the wedding, and feasted all day until evening. Then he needed to lie down to sleep.
But when he and his young wife went up the stairs, he looked, and in place of Elena Prekrasnaya was a wolf! The tsar turned angrily toward him, but the wolf ran off.
The Grey Wolf caught up with Ivan Tsarevich and asked: Why are you so sad, Ivan Tsarevich? " "How can I not be sad? It would be a pity to part with such a bridle, and to trade the horse with the golden mane for the Firebird.
" "Don't grieve, I will help you. And they traveled to Tsar Afron. The wolf said: Hide the horse and Elena Prekrasnaya.I will turn myself into the horse with the golden mane, and you will bring me to Tsar Afron. They hid Elena Prekrasnaya and the horse with the golden mane in the forest. The Grey Wolf looked over his back and turned himself into the horse with the golden mane. Ivan Tsarevich took him to Tsar Afron. The tsar was overjoyed and gave him the Firebird with the golden cage. Tsar Afron commanded his servants to bring his horse to him. He wanted to sit on him, but the horse turned into the Grey Wolf. The tsar was so surprised that he fell down right where he was standing, and the Grey Wolf took flight, quickly catching up with Ivan Tsarevich.
Ivan Tsarevich got down from his horse, and three times bowed down to the ground, with respect he thanked the Grey Wolf. Then he said: You won't be parted with me forever, I again will call you into service. " Ivan Tsarevich thought: "Aren't you already in my service, all of my wishes you have fufilled.
