Rubilota, before and after fame
The sun has not set on the horizon when the evidence of a great storm were noted. Even the dogs sought shelter in a safe place. The streets were deserted in an instant. The kids that messed fronts of commercial houses or local homes that denounced a good point for some change scattered like smoke in the wind. Apparently Rubilota was the only creature who seemed indifferent to fear that had taken hold of the population of that prototype city. It was a city almost unknown to the rest of the country. The rain began. While everyone tried to hide, seeking shelter as children fearing the dark, Rubilota took to the streets jumping like a monkey busy and grimacing like a lunatic. In fact, he had always been treated by the population as a lunatic. Was even hospitalized several times in the city's mental hospital, but, as was generally docile and playful, it was not enough to receive shock treatment, which was common, according to one of the employees of that establishment. For children, he served as a living toy. Whenever he passed where there was group of them, Rubilota had to dance the dance of the rope: two children, holding each one end of the rope, chasing him for a good path, with the rest of the gang behind shouting and laughing, and poor jumped lanky until the kids got tired. That happened a first casually, then turned usual. Whenever gathered more than three children, one of them soon sought somewhere a rope, hoping to make the party with the poor, if they find him. Children shyer were afraid of him. In these, the parents could instill fear of the creature through the threat of bad behavior, "Look, boy (or girl) if you disobey Daddy or Mommy, Rubilota come get you."
