After the princess had passed by, and entered the bath, Aladdin quitted his hiding-place, and went home.

But it was not an axe they heard - only a branch which still hung on a withered tree, and was moved up and down by the wind. At last, when they had been sitting there a long time, the children’s eyes became heavy with fatigue, and they fell fast asleep.
