Grim

Vuelvo a postear sobre seres folklóricos. He de decir que la mayoría de las criaturas sobre las que hablaré, pertenecen al folklore inglés e irlandés, por los cuales tengo un profundo interés, aunque comentaré mitos de todo el mundo.

En esta ocasión, el post está dedicado a los Grim, espíritus disfrazados de perro amenazador que habitan en los camposantos, que desde hace mucho se considera en las islas británicas un presagio de muerte.

Tanto en el folklore británico como en el escandinavo, "grim" puede ser un término general para referirse a un espíritu casero, pero su acepción más común es la de "grim de iglesia", un guardián de las ánimas de los difuntos que, en Inglaterra, adopta la forma de un perro negro, grande y greñudo, de mirada feróz. En Escandinavia, el grim de iglesia puede aparecer también como un caballo, un cordero o un cerdo.



Según la tradición inglesa, el grim de iglesia carga con la inmensa responsabilidad de proteger el cementerio del Diablo y sus brujas. A comienzos de la era cristiana mucha gente pensaba que, cuando se consagraba un nuevo cementerio, la primera persona que recibiera sepultura allí tendría que proteger el lugar contra la influencia satánica. Pero también se creía que si un perro negro y bueno era enterrado en el lado norte del cementerio, el animal podía asumir el puesto de guardián en lugar del alma humana, que quedaría así liberada y podría viajar hacia el más allá.

Los grims suelen ser invisibles, pero durante una tormenta se los puede ver paseándose por el cementerio. También puede aparecerse a medianoche en la víspera de una muerte, o de pie en la torre del cementerio durante un entierro. Se dice que el clérigo que oficia en el funeral es capaz de decir, por la apariencia del grim, si el alma del difunto irá al cielo o al infierno.

La chica corrió asustada hasta tropezar con una pequeña lápida, que la hizo caer de bruces. El suelo estaba embarrado a causa de la lluvia, que caía incesante desde hacía varias horas. La tremenda tormenta hacía la noche muy oscura, salvo los pequeños espasmos de luz con los que de pronto algo mostraba. La chica había llegado hasta allí huyendo, estaba llorando y desconsolada, y ahora, encima, en el suelo. Sintió, ahí tirada sobre la lápida, como la lluvia caía sobre su vestido, a su espalda, fría e incesante. Y escuchó a su alrededor, al silencio de la tormenta, ese ruido sordo de las gotas al llegar al suelo, al frío barro del cementerio. La chica levantó la cabeza, sus lágrimas caían mezclándose con el barro, y lo que vio la estremeció por completo. Más allá de unos arbustos, donde ya no había lápidas y el cementerio terminaba, había un tremendo perro negro. Su silueta bajo la lluvia casi no se apreciaba, pero se le veía merodeando. Avanzaba rodeando el cementerio, casi sorteando lápidas y tumbas, pero sin acercarse.

Ella pensó en quedarse muy quieta. Tal vez así no la vería. Lo observó allá, lejos, a través de la cortina de lluvia gris, y ella hubiera jurado ahí mismo que la estaba mirando. Pero no parecía tener intenciones de acercarse. Eso la tranquilizaba mucho, pero aun así...

A su espalda, de pronto, se oyó un ruido. Ella no miró atrás, quedó observando al animal, que levantó la cabeza, como alarmado, y salió huyendo. Perdiéndose de vista... Al momento, apareció un chico, corriendo, que la estaba buscando. Al llegar, se agachó junto a ella, y le acarició sus largos cabellos empapados. Ella sonrió, más tranquila, y trató de levantarse. Él la ayudó y pronto regresaron. Salieron del cementerio, tratando de darse prisa por la lluvia. Y en el último momento, ella se giró y miró de vuelta, pero ya no vio al perro negro a través de la cortina de lluvia gris. Ya no estaba...

Cuando ambos hubieron regresado a resguardo, aunque en la intimidad, ella trató de excusarse por su huída, pero él la calló de improviso. Ya no importaba, tenía una noticia que darle. Una mala noticia. Alguien cercano, muy cercano e importante para ella, acababa de morir. Había resultado un grave accidente. Un estúpido y casual accidente que se lo había llevado...

Al día siguiente, la chica regresaría al cementerio...

Darka.

Hola de nuevo.
Quería agradecerte el comentario y decirte que me ha gustado mucho el relato. Has descrito a la perfección todos los ambientes sobre los que había hablado: el cementerio, la noche de tormenta, el grim que más que un perro parece una sombra que se desliza entre las lápidas... Me ha gustado mucho de verdad, me alegro de nuevo de que los "personajes" sobre los que hablo te sean útiles para tus relatos y como ya te he dicho en el comment que he puesto en tu blog, no me importa que me pongas tus historias en el apartado de comentarios ;)

Estoy casi segura de que pocos lugares hay más tranquilos que un cementerio...
Corrijo, ¿sabes que en inglaterra los cementeris están al lado de las iglesias como plazas de pueblo? eso yo no considero muy tranquilo... pero me encanta como queda.
(olvida todo lo que escriba, creo que estoy transtornada)
