CUAUHTLIPOCA, EL ÁGUILA HUMEANTE
‘¡Aguanta un poco, todo va a salir bien!’ El hombre apenas si me miró pero pude notar claramente en su
silencio que no creyó en mis palabras de aliento. No sabía qué hacer, así que únicamente intentaba darle un poco de ánimo a aquel personaje que se encontraba tirado en el escritorio de mi oficina. Las heridas en su cuerpo eran notorias, una en la pierna y dos en el tronco justo del lado izquierdo, mostrando la carne quemada y la sangre que no dejaba de salir a borbotones; signo inequívoco de que se había enfrentado a los infantes de marina.
