“The River Runs Red.....”

  

Description from Elaine aka Belly Chick: This is a story about two young lovers in Mexico that hoping to be together forever. Their parents were afraid that this couple were getting ready to run away and get married, so the father of the girl decided on a scheme to keep that from happening. The night was dark with just a few stars in the sky and on this night, he went out and tampered with the red car that he thought would be used for their escape. Sure enough, the girl sneaked out when her fella showed up. They jumped into the red car and, much to the dismay of her father, it started like nothing was wrong! He stood on the porch in despair watching the tail lights disappear into the darkness.
It was not until the following morning that the families learned of the fate of the young couple. The car had sailed over the edge of the river bank and was swept away. They found the car down river a few days later but there was no sign of the young lovers.
Legend has it that every year on that same date, the river churns over violently and turns a deep, dark red.
