Every piece of a water has a fairy to protect it. In Wales, they are known as Gwragedd Annwn. They are breathtakingly beautiful woman and sometime venture on land to take a husband. One such tale is Llan Y Fan Fach (Lady of the Lake), who when chosen to be a wife,warned her husband that if he struck her three times then she would return to the lake. Laughing at a funeral, crying at a wedding and just taking too long caused her to be struck and therefore she return to the lake. However, her husband begged that she did not take their three sons, as she’d be teaching them herbology, she did leave them behind and they went on to be the physician of Myddafi.
