“We got him! Cover me, Luijo! Éte é un penco pájaro!” What a horrific beast!
¨Aquí toy, Mazaso!¨ Luijo is quick as always.
“Fafifo, close that gap, make him come to me! If he moves that way, tú lo ataja and slice ei maidito como un perro!” Lugarú? Zángano? What was the name Doña Miguela said for this type of galipote? Mazaso can´t remember now, this reburujú going on in earnest.
¨Guay mi mai, Guaaaaay mi mai!” The little girl screams again, the galipote’s iron grip hurting her arm. Fafifo gets ready to strike a supportive machete blow.
Mazaso is very tired, limbs still shaking with exertion from fighting the other monster not even one hour ago.
Someone brought a torch! Davisote, Fafifo´s friend, appeared out of the nothing again, and solve a huge problem no one foresaw, again.
A chair? Why did Luijo bring a chair? Jaimote brought Doña Miguela´s portrait of her favorite saint. The other monster lost a precious half second staring at it, and that was all Mazaso needed to make its head roll free on the ground…
“Show that maidito the cross, Dani!” Joss shouts. Doña Miguela insisted that his boy should take the cross made of palo de cruz. Why is this bloody bag so heavy?
“Jaimote, read the ensalmo! Carajo, open the book!” Joss points an urgent finger to Dani´s brother. He suspects Doña Miguela is a witch, but a kind one. How can she know so much?
Sensing the end, the galipote fixes his glassy eyes on Mazaso and crunches lower. What a horrendous set of teeth! The galipote´s shrieks crowl up their spines and turn their blood to ice, but they will never admit that to one another!
¨Mazaso, did you hear? I will be carrying the salt and holy water. Mazaso!¨ Fafifo poses his fingers for a roqui-toqui right between Mazaso´s eyes. It is 6:00 p.m. Mazaso saw it all in his head, how their plans will go. A terrified village near San Juan de La Maguana called for their help. Reckless, always eager to rescue friends in distress, they were famous already. They had never hunted galipotes before, but that was unimportant. Mazaso had his brothers, cousin and closest friends by his side.
