GG Royale’s The Bean-Nighe is a foreboding short story of Irishman Samuel Kavanagh, a wealthy southern plantation owner who becomes captivated by the mystery and beauty of a washer-woman, a house slave, one he does not recognize as having seen before. After his wife’s death, he takes the bean-nighe as a replacement wife, yet she behaves in a peculiar manner, and there’s always blood that seems to appears out of nowhere. He tries to remember a story that his grandmother had once told him, one about a banshee foretelling death.
“The Banshee is a feminine spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld.” – Wikipedia
The Bean-Nighe by GG Royale is based on the legend of a type of banshee called the washerwoman. If one saw her washing his or her clothes, one knew death was just around the corner.
