After Quetzalcóatl fell from the sky and caused a great hurricane that devastated everything, Tláloc became the third sun, and was placed in the center of the sky. He illuminated the world with his blue light, and ruled it with his fear. The humans of the third sun worshiped and feared him, and offered human sacrifices to calm him. Tláloc made humans from the third sun, and called them Nahui Quiahuitl, the four rains. They were happy and pious, and they worshiped Tláloc with fervor. Tláloc gave them the gift of fertility, and told them that they could have many children and crops. Tláloc was satisfied with his work, and he dedicated himself to watering and destroying. He sent rain, hail, snow and lightning. He gave life and death to the humans of the third sun, according to his whim. He was jealous and vindictive, and did not tolerate disobedience. But Tláloc fell in love with Chalchiuhtlicue, his sister and wife, who was the lady of the lakes and rivers, water and the south. She was the youngest daughter of Ometeotl, and the most beautiful of the four suns. She was sweet and compassionate, and she liked to take care of the humans of the third sun. Chalchiuhtlicue was kind to the humans of the third sun, and she protected them from the wrath of Tláloc. She gave them fresh water, and healed their wounds. She taught them love, and comforted them in pain. She was loved and respected by the humans of the third sun, and they offered her flowers and jewelry to thank her. Tláloc became angry with Chalchiuhtlicue, and reproached him for her kindness. He told her that she was foolish and weak, and that he didn‘t know how to govern. He told her that the humans of the third sun were ungrateful and rebellious, and that they did not deserve her compassion. He told her that she should be tougher and crueler, and that she should obey him. Chalchiuhtlicue was saddened by Tláloc, and responded firmly. She told him that he was a tyrant and a despot, and that she didn‘t know how to love. She told him that the humans of the third sun were his children and his brothers, and that they deserved her respect. She told him that he should be fairer and nobler, and that he should listen to her. Tláloc was filled with rage, and swore revenge on Chalchiuhtlicue. He rose from the sky, and became a storm. He cried so much that he flooded the world with his tears. He left nothing dry, and only water and tears remained. Thus the third sun ended, and the fourth began.
