In Thai provinces can hear the ancient legend of this beautiful flower.
According to legend it is living soul beauties – devushki by name Qui-May (so called on Thai Orchid)
Back in the village there lived a rich man and he had a daughter, the most beautiful woman in the county. The fame of her beauty scattered not only in their village, but also far beyond its borders.
A lot of guys like her – many would consider the happiness of married, but only rejected all beauty, for each found her insulting word… And once there was a guy in the village of distant and unknown edges. And heart trembled proud beauty. Yes, just a guy who did not succumb to her charms. Try as she draw attention to themselves – Yes, all to no avail.
And then went to the beautiful witch, who lived in a hut on the edge of the village and began to ask her to help her , get handsome from distant lands. And told her witch, that she did not bring happiness, because this guy - the son of the sorcerer and the sorcerer strong , and no man or witch, who could surpass him in strength. But beauty continued to cry and beg for help witch, and she gave, only said :"When you umresh- you give me your body.
Beautiful thought and decided : "I die not soon, and after the death of the body I do not need. Still burn it in the fire "and agreed…
And after seven days found her dead in the banana grove near the house of her father.
Began to prepare for burial, Woman dressed in beautiful clothes, removed the body colors…. And no one noticed - what has become of the body of the deceased… when the time came to carry her to the funeral Kosterlitz missed, but was found to.
And since then, the villagers began to see – dread spirit – Casa in the district. What has not made the villagers… And the offerings were in place – where they found a dead girl, and monks called, that would help to carry out the spirit of the world of the dead… Yes, but to no avail.
And cause one guy from the village - to go at night in the jungle, face to face with the spirit of the Casa and learn - what he needs, how much more it will catch up with fear in villagers.
He tied the knot in a handful of rice and dried meat and went.
And dusk and nightfall. And I heard a strange whistling guy, and saw red lights floating above the banana trees. Closer they… closer…. And he sees it - a terrible creature… Only the face – from that of a beautiful girl, she was so proud of her beauty and rejected all suitors…. And instead of a slender body and small graceful legs - floats through the air lump viscera .
Frightened guy, but the form he showed and spoke with a monster. And he said to the spirit of the Casa, I promised during the life of your body witch. And there is no place in her world of the living, and the world of the dead no shelter. And requested it to help her - go to the witch and ask - how can she be and how to rest in the realm of the dead.
The guy went to the witch on the outskirts of the village, and there instead of the old woman - beautiful girl. And let's meet him and she does not abandon every way. Do not succumb to the guy does not persuasion and her beauty was not buying. After all, he was a lifelong love the, that has now become a disembodied spirit terrible.
And he said the witch - you are beautiful, Yes I just love the other, and let it not in the world of living, but only my heart – it belongs.
"For thy righteousness, thank you" - said the Witch.
– I'll help you and be. Go to the mountains. There you will see the mountains old tree. That the tree naydesh- and take the village Carry. Plant and uhazhyvay. What goes in the germ does not share with all zhaley-, that would be in every home was.
Thanked the man and went to the witch… Wandered far… there, where no water is not running, no grass grows. And I saw an old tree lightning broken. And it beautiful delicate flower. He took the flower and set off on the return journey.
Returned to his home, planted flower and began to look, and went sprouts. Man dressed all villagers. In every house now has a wonderful flower sprout. And as flowers bloom - the villagers gathered and wove a garland of them, and carried to the place where she died. Since then, more have not seen in the village of dread spirit Kasy. In each house – still blooming orchids.
