Story told by Tzvetan Genov
In the beginning of the 70-ties, I went to visit Baba Vanga because of a problem with my son. While she was touching the sugar cube, she said loudly: – You didn’t wait at all. Only my closest people have gotten you in – I know them very well…I also know why you came here but first I’ll tell you something else. Your sick mother – Petranka will live long. Unfortunately your healthy father – Kolio won’t have that luck of your mother. He is a very gifted shoemaker. I have a need of low, light shoes that have buttons, as my legs hurt. Once you get back home, tell Kolio to make one pair for me – there are very few master shoemakers like him left.
Unexpectedly Baba Vanga disconnected from our conversation, and said with an angry voice: – Outside I see two young girls – tell them to go away from my gate and to go back home. I don’t accept adulteresses at my home.
Then she turned my face towards me again, and kept our conversation. – Your father lost your brother, and that is why he named you after him – Tzvetan. Your brother is here with us now. He is constantly asking why haven’t you visited his grave in the last two years.
It was impossible to stay indifferent when you were hearing all those words. I felt cold in this hot day of July. My lips got dry, and for a moment I forgot about my existence when hearing how Baba Vanga was seeing my life from birth to death. While I was trying to say a word Baba Vanga said in a loud voice again to the people outside: – Tell this young man from Razhdak (village near Petrich) to go home! His horse has died near the small gully at the orchard. Tell him to look for it there.
Then she turned to me again: – Your child that is named after your father is fine. He is very scared from a dog, snake, and fire but this will pass away. You need so little these days to get worried about your children…when you go home, find some dry hay that was mowed in August. Take one iron bucket, fill it with water, and boil it. Then take a handful of the dry hay and put it in the boiling water and keep it for 10 minutes. After bath, pour some lukewarm water from the bucket onto your child. Repeat the procedure for 7 times. Little Kolio will stop crying shortly after.
Then Baba Vanga spoke about my job, and everything said was the pure truth. I didn’t notice how the time passed by, so when I saw that Baba Vanga got tired and wanted to be alone, I just managed to say Thank You and left her house.
When I got back home, I followed her advises to the very last detail. Just after the first procedure, my son started to sleep peacefully at night and at day, and he never cried again while sleeping.
Unfortunately I couldn’t fulfill Baba Vanga’s request to give her the shoes that my father was going to custom-make for her. In the upcoming Fall he passed away.
