Marie was scared when she saw Drosselmeyer sitting on the watch next to the owl. And from everywhere there was a giggling, running and tramping, and from under the floor from all the cracks came out mice with luminous eyes. They were countless hordes that lined up in strict order. And at the feet of Marie, piercing the floor, a huge mouse with seven heads, on which were the golden crowns, came out.

In honor of the birth of the princess, a banquet was organized, to which Queen Mysilda appeared without invitation and ate all the fat intended for making sausages.
