A difficult decision

“You have balanced the pros and cons, now you have to decide what is best for everyone when you know that there are very few who have to understand it; Then look for the key points and move on, no matter how difficult it may seem, but I repeat, it is not easy ”

The Messenger

The moment will come when I can explain what were the ants for Hora, but now it is necessary to return to the Aztec empire, where Evaristo is presenting to Erandi’s disciples the formulas that he knows to prepare ointments, the most effective way to preserve them and they, in turn, have shown him the benefits of mullein and its different uses when mixed with aromatic herbs. 

Most of the apprentices admired Evaristo’s skill in preparing some concoctions and at the same time, Evaristo recognizes the talent of all of them to share their knowledge with him.

He discovers that some mushrooms are not friends of lucidity and admits that many ailments do not give in to what is known to encourage a cure and can be a danger when the patient is told that this will solve his ailments and remain healthy for life.

After the class, only him, Quizari Taiyari and Erandi remained, the last two considered it appropriate to speak in private about dreaded smallpox since warning the apprentices was to alert them to an evil that for them and according to Dayami’s visions, no everything related to that plague ended at all well.

Quizari with a worried face pointed out:

-Yes we are going to warn them, they will know that death is inevitable, even for magic all this would become a mystery without happy solutions; shadows in human hands are difficult tools to hold.

Erandi took Evaristo by the shoulder as he asked,

«Is there anything we can do?»

Evaristo bewildered looked, the question was difficult to answer however structured his answer as best he could with full knowledge that it would not be easy for all.

-Avoid local population with some exposed wound is close to the invaders, I know from experience that they usually come to the villages to rape maidens if this happens and one of them has been exposed to the disease, it will not be easy to help the person who gets the illness; isolating her would be one way, I don’t know how possible this is.

Unlike them, we were in isolation in the caves of Cacahuamilpa, there we were detoxified body and soul, even when no one was sick, many of us suffered from this plague in childhood.

Erandi warned: 

-We have agreed that weeks before their arrival, we will be warned by Dayami to be able to leave this place, but not all of us will do it and not forever; we must know the ways how to prepare a support group.

Quizari Taiyari hugged Erandi as he pointed out:

-One of you will be Quetzalcóatl’s spokesperson, Erandi has put premonitory dreams in Wuey Tlatoani, we must find a way to destabilize him. 

Because of what will happen later, we cannot know and act accordingly, although death is not an end for us, reaching the light requires constant treatment and Yao still needs us in this territory that we tread, it will be her turn, she will live difficult experiences and she needs skilful and tenacious training.

There was a reflective silence, faced with the overwhelming vision of an uncertain future where each one of them would be a factor of change and they were not willing to allow themselves to be defeated.

Sometimes your role in life is transformed and you can be different characters in a scenario where it is necessary to put the intelligence and intuition of an entire group to work, that way you will recognize that you do not have absolute control and that despite them you must look for it.
