PrologueMany a moon ago there lived a maiden whose skin was fair as snow and hair white as moonbeams. So beautiful was she that her beauty could never be recreated, even by the hand of Michelangelo himself. She was not of noble birth, but such was her beauty that young men of all rank sought her hand, but she had eyes only for one; a plain yet handsome lad her parents did not approve of. Though he showered her with the truest of love, he was poor and vastly inadequate in comparison with the gains she may have in pursuing other suitors. But, as all stories of love go, true hearts are not bound by rules, and they were determined that they were to share this life together. At night he would steal to her window and stay by her side until the dawn, even as she slept he watched over her. As time passed their secret became harder to keep, and as she drew past marrying age, showing no interest in even the finest of men that came to her door.
A choice had to be made, so they arranged to meet on the bank of the river, on the outskirts of town, under the light of the full moon. The night came. In a simple white dress the maiden escaped to the spot they were to meet, but the light of the moon did not draw caution to the slippery ground and did not illuminate the rocks just below the surface of the still water, and the beautiful maiden slipped into the water, and never again would she see the sun in her beloveds eyes as the water claimed her life. It was for this tragedy, they would say hundreds of years later, that her spirit remains. As long as the full moon shone she would wait, bound there, eternally in mourning for all she had lost. Such were the legends passed down through generations until not but flights of fantasy...
