First words
Author's Note: This story is based on the legend of the Mayan god Kukulcan, who mysteriously appeared out of the north some time around the sixth century.
By the cock that crew for our holy apostle St. Peter, by the bronze horse of Toledo and the six bishops of Valladolid, I swear that all I put down here is the truth.
