weird true story

This was the third day of rain, and they had killed so many crabs inside the house that Pelayo had to cross his drenched courtyard and throw them into the sea. The light was so weak at noon that it was hard for him to see what it was moving and groaning in the rear of the courtyard. He saw an old man, lying face down into and half-plucked he mud, Who could not get up, impeded by his enormous wings. Frightened by that nightmare, he ran to get his wife, Elisenda, who was putting compresses on the sick child. They both looked at the fallen body with a mute stupor. There were only a few faded hairs left on his bald skull and few teeth in his mouth His huge buzzard wings, dirty and half-plucked, were forever entangled in the mud. They concluded that he was a lonely castaway from some foreign ship wrecked by the storm. They called a woman who knew everything about life and death to see him, and all she needed was one look to show them their mistake .’He is an angel’-she told them .”He must have been coming for the child, but the poor fellow is so old that the rain knocked down and everyone knew that a flesh and blood angel was held captive in his house. Pelayo watched over him, armed with his bailiff’s club, and before going to bed, he dragged him out of the mud and locked him up with the hens in the wire chicken coop. When they went out into the courtyard, they found the whole neighborhood in front of the coop having fun with the angel as if he weren’t a supernatural creature but a circus animal. What will be the captive’s future? Father Gonzaga, opened the door and had a close look at that pitiful man Alien to the impertinences of the world, he only lifted his old eyes and murmured something in his dialect He was much too human, the back side of his wings was strewn with parasites and an unbearable smell of the outdoors. Seeing the crowd, he got the idea of fencing in the yard and charging five cents admission to see the angel. The angel was the only one who took no part in his act. Sometimes he awoke with a start, ranting in his hermetic language and with tears in his eyes, and flapped his wings a couple of times The doctor could not resist the temptation to listen to the angel’s heart ,and he found so much whistling in the centre that it seemed impossible for him to be alive .what surprised him most, however the logic of his wings but to utter surprise, he not only survived but seemed improved with the first sunny days . He remained motionless for several days and at the beginning of December, stiff feathers began to grow on his wings Elisenda caught the angel in his first attempts at flight, but could not get a grip on the air, but he did manage to gain altitude. She let out a sigh of relief, for herself and for him ., when she watched him pass over the last houses, holding himself up in some way with the risky flapping of a senile vulture. He was no longer an annoyance in her life but an imaginary dot on the horizon of the sea.
