The Dancing Man
In Vaikusemaa on the northern shore of lake Mustavega lies the Forest of Pimedusamets, which, even in the endless days of summer, is in constant darkness. There exist mystic beings, known to the sparse community as Tantsivad Mehed, or Dancing Men.
On the Eve of Summer Solstice, as midnight approaches folk close their doors and shutters. Soon a Dancing Man will emerge from the forest blackness and anyone casting an eye on the creature will be forever blinded.
The light fades, he whirls and jigs. As midnight strikes, he screams and, like summer ice, he melts away into the soil.
