Maggy calls her closer and tells her to taste her blood. Melara gets scared, but Cersei cuts herself and her in the thumb with a crooked old knife. Greedily takes Maggy Cerei's thumb and presses it to her gums. She then grants Cersei three questions, but warns that she would not like her answers. First, Cersei asks the old woman when she will marry the "prince" and receives the answer that she will never marry him, but that she will marry a "king". Then the young Cersei asks if she would become queen, and the old woman explained to her that she would be queen, but that one day a younger and more beautiful queen would come and take away everything that is dear to her, and also prostrate them. Finally, Cersei asks if she and the king would have children, and Maggy explains that the king will have twenty and Cersei will have three children.

Cersei, the witch's words haunted her entire life.

Melara, on the other hand, prophesies the witch that she will die that same day and indicates that it will be at Cersei's hand. Dissatisfied, Cersei threw a vessel in Maggy's face and fled with Melara, while the one left behind cursed both of them.
