In the park downtown is a little lake with an island in it. You can feed the ducks and geese that pass through seasonally or skip pebbles across the weedy waters. But people don't like to go there at night. Not since the green lady has been sighted there. Back in the war era a lady and her beaux would go walking around the lake and across the narrow bridge to the island (long since removed from its dis-repaired condition) where 2 benches sat (the iron sides of these are still there, among rotting boards) to spoon. Her man went off to war and she waited patiently, taking the stroll around the park to ease her mind. Still hopeful that his promise of marriage when he came home would happen soon. One day she received word that he would be home later that evening and she happily prepared the house and herself for an evening out in celebration. The hour he was due passed and she grew frantic, pacing the hall. Her friends tried to console her with jokes and drinks but finally, a knock came at the door. A soldier with a grave face relayed that the car bringing her love, and the other soldiers back into town, had careened off a steep cliff on a gravelly road, just out of town and only 2 men had survived it. Neither of them her man. She paled at the news and sat unresponsive for half an hour. Then, she beamed a smile and brushed herself off as she stood up, saying she was going to take a walk to cool her head, and headed for the park. No one saw her after that until 6 months later. Her body floated up on the shores of the lake-island still in it's beautiful, though now terribly tattered, green silk dress. Since that day, if you go to the lake-park at night, you may meet a lone lady in a green dress that will ask to walk with you, and talk about all manner of things, and lead you over a rickety narrow bridge, to the island where she will begin to glow, fade away into a green mist, along with the bridge you are on, and drop you straight into the lake. Unless you are very quick, and make it to either shore. Several people who have encountered her say she smells faintly of white flowers and duckweed.
