Leelinau’s parents lowered their heads with sadness. They were sorry they wished for their daughter to grow up so soon. Now, their only wish was to have her back for one more day. Just then, a lone fisherman walked into the village. He said that late the night before, he saw a beautiful princess dancing along the shore with fairies at her side, and it was the happiest sight he had ever seen. And there, as the fisherman was speaking, the sound of silver bells filled the air, surrounding everyone with music and a young girl’s voice, “I want to dance on forest paths and sing among the trees, I want to hear my laughter float like bells upon the breeze.
When her parents told her she would be happy with her new husband, she did not believe them. Leelinau smiled softly, but the smile was only pretend. On her wedding day, the women of the village prepared Leelinau for the ceremony. Her dress was white with tender pink beads, and she wore a crown of twigs and flowers in her hair. She held tassels of pine in her hands and was the most beautiful bride anyone had ever seen. ” Leelinau’s father did not think this was a good idea, but Leelinau drew her chin downward and looked sweet, and he could not resist his lovely daughter.
