LOS TERRORES DE LYDIA

Mientras le miraba creí ver cómo se transformaba: pareció aumentar de tamaño, su rostro se volvió repentinamente negro y sus rasgos parecieron transfigurarse y alterarse. Al momento siguiente me levanté de un salto y retrocedí contra la pared, con el brazo alzado para escudarme de aquel prodigio y la mente sumergida en el terror.

As I looked at him I thought I saw how he was transforming: he seemed to grow larger, his face suddenly turned black and his features seemed to transfigure and alter. The next moment I jumped up and back against the wall, with my arm raised to shield myself from that prodigy and my mind submerged in terror.
