Meili and The Immortal Fox

May 29, 2021 at 10:27 pm (Folklore, Mythology, Short Story) (, , )

Meili’s mother had vanished when she was young.

One day they were walking through the woods when a fierce storm came up.

Meili’s mother Niang had called out to the heavens for protection for her daughter.

The storm ceased but Meili’s mother had gone.

Although Meili did see a small fox disappear in the direction of a shrine in the woods.

Today was the day Meili was to be presented at the Imperial court.

How Meili wished her mother was here to help prepare her for her presentation at court.

As Meili sat in her bedroom wishing that, a small fox entered the room.

The fox went and stood by Meili.

A mist rose and became Meili’s mother Niang.

Niang helped Meili dress and then the crowning touch was when Niang put her blue sapphire broach in Meili’s hair.

It was then Meili realized that her mother Niang was truly a goddess.

Huxian Niangniang.

Fox Immortal Lady.
