Leyendas de Quito que han trascendido en el tiempo

Cuenta la historia, hace mucho tiempo en época de la colonia existía una niña llamada Bella Aurora que vivía en la casa 1028, en la antigua calle Chile con su adinerada familia.

Bella Aurora se destacaba por ser una de las niñas más bellas y dulces de la ciudad de Quito, meses después en la Plaza Grande donde no había monumentos sino una pileta se realizaban corridas de toros por las festividades de San Pedro.

Las familias más adineradas de la ciudad donaron banderillas adornadas con monedas de oro que fueron clavados en los lomos de los toros y los toreros debían quitárselos como recompensa a su buen trabajo correteando a los toros furiosos y heridos.

Se tocaron los clarines y comenzó la fiesta, salió el primer toro de color castaño y los participantes hicieron de las suyas, lo corretearon y le quitaron los banderines, el toro cayó y le retiraron de la plaza.

Lo terrorífico

Salió el segundo toro, uno de color negro, grande que resoplaba por las narices, salió rompiendo las barreras, todos estaban asustados y este miraba furioso a todos lados, se acercó al graderío donde estaba Bella Aurora, ella se asustó tanto que se desmayó.

Sus padres la socorrieron inmediatamente, salieron de allí con la joven en brazos hasta su casa, la casa 1028, donde intentaron curarla del espanto.

Mientras tanto, el toro que permanecía en la Plaza al no encontrar a la joven, salió corriendo enfurecido, saltando la barrera protectora, dirigiéndose hacia la casa 1028, y al llegar al lugar derribó la puerta de la entrada asustando a los criados, subió hasta la habitación donde estaba Bella Aurora, que yacía en su cama.

Al verlo ella intentó huir pero no tuvo fuerzas. El toro la embistió y la mató con dureza.  Al oír que alguien se acercaba el toro se esfumó.

Nada se pudo hacer por Bella Aurora, falleció esa misma tarde. Los padres devastados enterraron a su hija y poco después se marcharon de la ciudad

Nunca se supo de dónde surgió este toro, ni  porqué de la ofensiva contra la joven. Jamás lo encontraron.

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said «You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.» She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone! cheap flights http://1704milesapart.tumblr.com/ cheap flights

  5. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means
    discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s lovely value sufficient for me.
    In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web will be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  6. Definitely believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
    consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed
    to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing
    without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
