The fairytale The Six Swans could be considered a male version of the swan maiden, where the swan skin isn't stolen but a curse, similar to The Swan Princess. Even in the distance the Herd Boy could see the nine maidens in the water. She told Qi Xianv that she could cross the bridge of birds and stay with Lai for that day. She agreed to marry him.

After his parents passed away, he stayed with his brother and sister-in-law, who treated him very badly. Or was it just the birds. Ages 14—up. In a moment clouds began to stream out of her hoofs, and she rose into the air.

Someone singing? Lai realised that the fairies must have come for his wife. As well as being kind and gentle, fairies can see right through people, and she could see that this boy was so shy because he was falling in love with her. The grass was of jasper and the flowers of coral. They are also called swan mays or swanmays in fantasy fiction and Dungeons and Dragons.
