THE MYSTERIOUS CRY
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Legends abound all over the world;
however, this one takes place in the Mexican state of Zacatecas.
The story began in the middle of the 1800ís when a
young manís mother, that lived quite a far away from any city or town, took ill.
Night was beginning to fall and he would have to travel a very long way in order
to find a doctor to bring back to his home. A friend of his asked him to wait
until sunrise, but he was afraid that his mother would not make it until
morning; therefore, he decided to travel in the dark.
He got on his horse and began at full gallop toward
the city. About half way to the city, there stood an old abandoned Hacienda. As
he was passing by, he heard a sound that he thought he recognized. He slowed
down and listened a bit. Then he thought he should check out the sound. As he
got closer to the abandoned Hacienda, he realized the sound was that of a crying
baby. Thoughts began to race in his head, did someone leave the baby in this old
building, were there bandits in there causing this noise to get him to stop so
they could rob in, and so on and so forth.
He stopped again for a few short minutes to listen.
The crying stayed the same and he was convinced it was the cries of a baby, so
he headed on into the house.
When he went in, he found nothing, no food, no
light, and no people around anywhere. He could still hear the baby crying, so he
began his search. He found the baby within a few minutes and thought he should
wait to see if any family members would arrive. After awhile, he decided he had
to get to the city to get the doctor to his ailing mother and since the family
had not arrived, he would take the baby with him on to the city. There maybe he
could find some help for the infant.
As he walked up to his horse, the horse along with
the baby seemed to be very restless. He finally calmed down his horse, climbed
up, and headed to the city.
He could tell the baby was still very restless and believing it could be hungry
or that something else could be wrong he began to ride faster. As he came closer
to the city limits, he tried to calm the baby by telling him that he would find
someone to give him some milk in the city. Instead of the baby crying he heard
the baby in a deep harsh voice "Donít worry. I already have teeth for meat." The
baby then launched an evil laugh that caused the man to freeze. The baby jumped
from the horse and ran off laughing.
At that moment, the man realized it had been
carrying the Devil along with him. The man began to age rapidly. As soon as he
approached the city, he headed for the cathedral, explained his story to the
Priest and then passed away from old age.
From this day forward, everyone stays clear of the
old abandoned hacienda and never travel alone at night afraid they may be the
next one to pick up the Devil as a traveling companion. Many say you can still
hear the baby crying in the old building.
