to walk faster - then they realised that the bells they could hear were
in fact wedding bells.
bridal procession slowly appeared round the corner - a coach drawn by
six horses, with footmen and a coachman. As the coach passed, the couple
looked inside at the bride, dressed in her magnificent white wedding dress.
the bride had no face - under her wedding veil there was just a skull.
Scared out of their wits, the couple ran the rest of the way home.
At first, they worried that people would laugh at them, but when they
told others about their encounter, they were told about an old legend.
long time ago, the same bride went to St. Lawrence Church to be married,
but her bridegroom never arrived. She was so sad that she killed herself,
and now, once a year, her ghost drives down the valley, trying to find
her disloyal fiance.
