The Ice Maiden
Ok so maybe i should of told you the story of ‘The Ice Maiden’ so here you go you can read it for yourselves…
It tells the story of Rudy, who we first meet as a little boy selling toy houses his grandfather makes. We learn that both his parents are dead, his mother killed when she fell into a glacial crevice. She had been holding the infant Rudy at the time but he was saved. This was the first “kiss” by the ice maiden who is determined to possess him.
Rudy eventually goes to live with uncle and becomes an exceptional hunter and marksman. He falls in love with the miller’s daughter, a girl who is definitely above him in society, but he eventually wins her hand through his courage and skill. Remember though, that the Ice Maiden has been watching him all this time, trying on several occasions to make him hers. Eventually she succeeds and Rudy drowns on the night before his wedding.
