Hunter: It´s just that….
Snow White: What´s wrong? You look worried.
Hunter: It´s nothing. It´s just that I promised…. I promised…. Oh, you´re a nice person… please forgive me for what I’m going to do.
Snow White: What are you going to do? … Oh, don’t tell me! Did you promise to hurt me? To whom?
Hunter: Yes! I promised that I would get rid of you forever.
Snow White: Why? I haven´t done anything wrong to you.
Hunter: Not to me, but you did to the Queen… to your own stepmother!
Snow White: Oh No! I knew it! She doesn´t like me! But.. tell me more.
(They stop walking)
Hunter: I can´t do it! I just can´t!… Stay here and don´t go back, maybe someone will help you.
Snow White: Are you sure? Am I free?
Hunter: Yes! I will tell the Queen that you died.

Snow White: Oh, thank you… thank you! Now go back, before the Queen sends someone looking for you.
Hunter: Good-bye… and don´t be afraid.
Snow White: I told you it was getting dark, and I am afraid of wolves!
