As the men put the last touches on the roof, one scrambled down with a cry, "They are coming!" A group of horsemen could be seen coming up the road. In a matter of minutes, the caballeros descended on the villagers like a whirlwind.
Mamani recognized Señor Gonzalez. He saw Gonzalez say something to one of his overseers. The man jumped from his horse and went to one of the small fireplaces where he caught up a burning piece of wood.
Mamani's heart hammered in his chest. "No, no!" he cried in desperation, and ran toward him. But the man pushed Mamani away and threw the firey wood onto the newly thatched roof. Then he turned and aimed a terrible blow at Mamani's face. Laughing, he mounted his horse again. Mamani stumbled back to his house, his face bleeding.
The spot where the burning stick had landed smoked for a few minutes, but the lively evening wind soon fanned it to flame. The new roof was burning! Little did Mamani know that things were about to become even worse.
