Guaraní leyend that happened back in the early years after the Discovery of the Indies…
⚔️🛡️ Back in the day, a Spanish knight and his young daughter Pilar, who had beautiful violet-blue eyes, arrived along with other families and Jesuit monks to an area near the city, known as The Seven Currents, to populate it.
💕 One day, during one of Pilar and her maiden evening walks, a young landworker named Mbaraté called her attention. Just an exchange of glances ignited the spark of love between them.
🕵️Since then, Mbaraté figured out how to know where the lovely spanish lady lived. He thought it would be a good idea to be sent by the Jesuit monk to work closer to the village and convinced the monk to teach him spanish too.
😍Later on, the young landworker found Pilar teaching the children to write and read, and he awaited hidden watching her teaching. Once the class was over, he approached her to declarare his love. Pilar blushed, and Mbaraté interpreted that as a sign of interest for him.
👩❤️💋👨The young lovers keep on meeting secretly and decided to run together to continue their beautiful love story.
😤 But Pilar’s father figured it all out and searched for the couple until he discovered them living in a humble hut by the river.
💥💥 The villagers could hear two gunshots that reassured the fatal destiny. Pilar got shot on the chest trying to save the life of her lover when she saw his father running towards Mbaraté. Thereafter, Mbaraté got shot too trying to figured out why Pilar’s father did that.
😢 When the Spanish knight came to his senses and saw the two bodies laying down death, he ran back to the village terrified about what he did.
🌸 At down, he went back all ashamed to the lovers hut to arrange the respectful burial to the bodies, but just where the bodies lied together, grow instead a lovely thick trunk tree full of violet-blue flowers.
🥺 Suddenly the father understood that God had mercy of the young lovers, transforming the landworker in a strong tree and the eyes of his daughter looked at him from the georgeous violet-blue flowers of the Jacarandá tree.
