I Need Help Finding a Certain Story

Posted on October 12, 2010

I need to know what I’m searching for

Please I need your help! I have been trying on my own for years, but I can’t seem to find what I’m looking for. I am looking for a true story probably an old legend ranging from (most likely) the feudal era to the early 1900′s. I know it is a large range, but I just don’t know when the story takes place or in what country/region.

The story involves a young girl running from a deadly attacker into a forest on a rainy night. The rain in the story is described as so thick you can hardly see through it. The girl ends up in a small clearing of trees where she is almost killed by her attacker. Before the final blow is received a young man dressed in white with silver hair saves her by cutting down her attacker with a sword.

The man, even though it is not in his nature (not something he would normally do) rescues the girl by scooping her up and carrying her to safety. I’m not sure if this part is in the story, I don’t remember, but the girl should have deep wounds and would most likely be covered in blood. The man is known for being ruthless, but yet he still saves the girl. I know the girl does survive in the story and all her wounds heal, but I don’t know if the man knew the girl before the incident or not.

I know this is not easy, but I was hoping someone would recognize something in this story. I have been searching for years now, but I just don’t remember enough to pull up any information on the internet or when searching books at a book store. I have asked people at the library, etc., but it never rings any bells. Please! I hope you can help me! I would appreciate it more than you would know. Thank you for your time.

    • amaya says:

      no its definately not an anime. I was told this story when I was very young. From what I was told when I heard this story is that it is a historical legend/folktale. I don’t remember much about the story just that one particular occurence in the story. I have been searching for it for years, but i guess because of the fact that the hero has silver hair all I ever find are animes. There may be an anime based on this story (i’m assuming very roughly) as I have come across many animes based on historical legend such as saiyuki, which is based on the stone monkey or simply monkey which the story of sun wukong(chinese) or son goku (japanese). Overall, I’m looking for the original story, not an anime lol. tyvm for your comment

    • amaya says:

      Do you know if this anime is possibly based on the original legend/folktale I am thinking of? If so I may be able to find what i’m looking for via a search of the origins of that anime. Thank you very much for helping!!

      • ghost in the machine says:

        Hmmm I will try to find out more about this Amaya. Can you give me more details. How told you this story, what was the back ground (nationality) of this person. or anything that might help.
        wish I could give you my email but they do not let us post them.
        It sounds to me like an old book I once read called “the Sword of Winter” but I can be sure.
        lets see if we can find a way to contact each other, know I can find this, lol. It drives me nuts when I am trying to find something and now I want to know what this story is as well.

        • amaya says:

          I think the man was white, but it was in a forest setting, not sure what country though. I think the man was a wanderer or nomad. The story was told to me by my great grandpa. who i think was french…
