The following is a reblog of Welsh Legends: The Bride From the Red Lake by Zteve T Evans on 27/04/2017. This is taken from one of my favorite websites about myths, legends, and folklore. This is a poignant tale about a Welsh farmer falling in love with a woman from the spiritual Otherworld. Though the couple marry and are very happy together, the mortal man could not keep his side of the bargain that he made with his wife's father. As a result, he loses her when he inadvertently breaks the agreement. It is often the case in Welsh folklore that when humans do fall in love with maidens from the Otherworld, or have dealings with its people, a sad ending is the result.
