Rhys and Meinhir

A myth submitted to the site by Mia Jones

Nant, Wales

This is a story about a boy called Rhys and a girl called Meinhir. They where best friends.
They lived on farms in Nant. Meinhir had brown dark hair that flew in the wind and Rhys had dark black hair that was dark as the night. Meinhir, Rhys and his sheep dog would look at the waves at Carreg Y llam or shelter under the hollow oak tree.

Meinir lived with her father Ifan and he loved Rhys. Ifan teased Rhys and Meinhir and thought they would get married. Rhys and Meinhir fell in love with each other. They once went for a walk and Rhys ran towards the oak tree that had been split in half by lightning centuries ago. Rhys carved a heart with RH xx M inside. Meinhir had to close her eyes but when she saw it she thought it would bring bad luck.

Years passed and Rhys and Meinhir decided to get married. The day arrived and eveything was ready. Rhys asked his friends to make sure Meinhir would arrive on time. The bride would allways hide on the morning of the wedding day. Meinhir hid in the hollow oak tree that Rhys had carved. Everyone looked for Meinhir but they didn't find her!

Years later Rhys went mad and always went to Carreg Y llam on his own. One day Rhys was laying by the hollow oak tree and there was a thunder storm and lightning. The lightning struck the tree and Rhys saw a skeleton of Meinir wearing her wedding dress. Rhys touched his bride and Rhys was struck by the lighting but died happy because he had found his true love Meinhir. RH XX M
