Long ago, the Aztecs lived in harmony with nature and the gods. Their main food was corn, which they considered a sacred gift from Ometeotl, the supreme god. Corn was so important to them, they called it "the sustenance of life." But one day, some white men arrived from the other side of the sea, bringing with them firearms, horses and crosses. These men were greedy and violent, and wanted to conquer the lands and wealth of the Aztecs. They also wanted to impose their religion and culture, and destroy everything that the Aztecs revered. The Aztecs resisted bravely, but were unable to stop the advance of the invaders. Many died in battle, others were captured and enslaved, and others fled to the mountains and forests. The invaders burned the temples, looted the cities and desecrated the corn fields. The gods, seeing the suffering of their people, became very angry and decided to punish the invaders and the traitors who had allied themselves with them. The gods sent earthquakes, droughts, plagues and diseases, which wreaked havoc on the white men and their allies. But the gods also had compassion on the Aztecs who had remained faithful to their faith and tradition. The gods revealed a prophecy to them, which said: "When the sun sets for the last time, and the moon is stained with blood, the end of the world will come. He who walks behind the line, the lord of the corn, will rise from the earth and destroy the enemies of his people The corn will turn red like blood, and the children of the corn will be the chosen ones to survive the cataclysm. They must take refuge in the sacred fields, and wait for the sign of the gods. Then, a new sun will be born, and a new world will begin. The children of the corn will be in charge of repopulating the earth, and restoring order and harmony. They will be the children of Ometeotl, and the corn will be their sustenance of life." The Aztecs who heard the prophecy were filled with hope and fear. They did not know when the end of the world would occur, but they knew that they had to prepare for that day. So they dedicated themselves to growing corn with more devotion than ever, and to teaching their children the secrets of the sacred plant. They also told them the prophecy, and told them that they were the children of the corn, those chosen by the gods. Many years passed, and the invaders continued to dominate the lands of the Aztecs. But one day, the sun set for the last time, and the moon was stained with blood. The end of the world had arrived. The one who walks behind the line, the lord of the corn, rose from the earth and destroyed the enemies of his people. The corn turned blood red, and the children of the corn were the only ones who survived the cataclysm. They took refuge in the sacred fields, and waited for the sign of the gods. Then, a new sun was born, and a new world began. The children of the corn were responsible for repopulating the earth, and restoring order and harmony. They were the children of Ometeotl, and corn was the sustenance of his life.
