ONE CURSE FOR TWO PERSONS

 

 

A hundred years ago, there was a woman called Anna with a terrible curse. She was young and pregnant, and a demon had cursed her because she had left her first baby to die in the cold. So, when she gave birth to another baby, called Rosa, she left it in front of a big house, and then she killed herself with a knife, next to the baby. Her last sendence was 'Rosa, I love you but I have to go forever'. Before the knife touched Anna's chest, a tear fell into Rosa's palm. A half hour later, it was 12:00 o'clock and there was a full moon. Violeta, the little girl who lived in the big house, went out to see the snow falling because it was winter. She saw Anna's corpse on the ground and she screamed very loudly and her mother woke up to check what had happened. She immediately took the baby inside and then she left it to sleep in her warm blanket.      

In the morning, the baby wasn't there. Violeta and her mother looked all around the house and in the garden. Suddenly, Violeta heard a baby crying near the cemetery. Her mother found the baby over Anna's grave, sleeping calmly. She went crazy! How did the baby get there? That night, she had a strange dream and she woke up to drink some hot milk to calm herself down. The lights went off and the window opened, and as she was running to close it, she saw a shadow coming in, and she heard a deep voice saying, "MAKE A SACRIFICE, IF YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR PRECIOUS VIOLETA. KILL ROSA THE BABY OVER HER MOTHER'S GRAVE IN THE MOONLIGHT." Violeta's mother said "NO I WON'T !" and the demon said, "Then, Violeta is dead ….". The mother finally said, "OK, I'll do it but don't hurt my daughter". The demon had gone but Violeta's mother didn't sleep until the moonlight came.

The sacrifice day came and she called a babysitter to stay with Violeta that night. Violeta's mother took the baby and went to the cemetery. She put the baby over Anna's grave and she was holding the knife but she couldn't kill Rosa. She left the baby there with a warm blanket and she went home. Violeta asked her where the baby was and her mother answered, "I left her in the orphanage". Then Violeta said, "I miss her". The babysitter went with Violeta to her bedroom and her mother went again to the cemetery to take the baby back but it was too late. The baby had died from the cold, like her sister. She buried the baby. She went home quickly to see Violeta, but when she opened the door, she heard a baby crying and she saw the baby that she had buried in Violeta's arms, and sleeping together. Immediately, she went back again to the cemetery and dug up the baby. She went home but the baby wasn't with Violeta.

Next morning, she went to a psychologist to talk about what happened the previous days. The psychologist told her to take some tranquilizers to sleep at night. A month later, Violeta got sick and died. Her mother had depression without her baby forever. After the funeral, she went to sleep but she had a nightmare about Violeta, with her daughter saying, "Why did you kill me?", with tears of blood running out of her eyes. The next morning, she went to the cemetery to light a candle and she saw Violeta with the baby, alive! She ran away but everywhere she went, the children were there. It was 5:00 in the morning when Violeta saw the sunrise and went back to the grave with the baby. But before she disappeared, she said, "At night, I'll be in your nightmares forever"……
