The daughter goes to the castle and is told that if she doesn't turn the hay into gold she will be killed. Then a little man comes in and asks her what she will give him if he turns the hay into gold and she says her necklace.

The little man returned again and said what will you give me if I turn the hay to gold and she replied my ring then he took it. The next day the king took her to an even larger room and told her that if she turned all the hay to gold he would marry her. After that the little man came a third time and asked what will you give me and the girl said I have nothing left.

A little while later she had her first child which was a boy. Then the little man came by and said give me what is mine but the girl said if I don't figure out your name in three day you can have my son.
11: The little man agreed and left. On the first day the little man said no to every name, and he said no to every name the second day. Then the last day the girl guessed the right name and Rumpelstiltskin was never seen again.
