When the gods and men saw what Quetzalcoatl had done, they were filled with amazement and sadness. They recognized his greatness and his goodness, and thanked him for his gifts. They paid tribute to him and sang his praises. They promised him that they would always remember and honor him. But there were also some who felt jealous and envious of Quetzalcoatl. Among them was Tezcatlipoca, his brother and rival, who could not stand that Quetzalcóatl was more loved and respected than him. Tezcatlipoca swore revenge on Quetzalcoatl, and planned a way to destroy his work and his legacy. Tezcatlipoca disguised himself as an old man and approached Uxmal, the first man. He told her that he had come to give her advice, and to listen to him carefully. He told her that Quetzalcoatl was not as good as he seemed, and that in reality he had a hidden plan. He told him that Quetzalcoatl wanted men to be his slaves, and that was why he had given them corn and the sun. He told him that Quetzalcoatl would one day return to claim his power, and that he would punish them for his sins. Uxmal did not believe Tezcatlipoca‘s words, and told him to leave. But Tezcatlipoca insisted, and showed him proof. He showed her a mirror, where Quetzalcoatl‘s face was reflected. But his face was full of anger and hatred, and he had a terrible expression. Tezcatlipoca told him that this was the true face of Quetzalcoatl, and that this was how he looked at them from the sun. Uxmal was scared when he saw the mirror, and felt a doubt in his heart. He wondered if Tezcatlipoca was telling the truth, and if Quetzalcoatl was his friend or his enemy. Tezcatlipoca took advantage of his confusion and told him there was a way to find out. He told him that if Quetzalcoatl was good, he would forgive him any offense. He told him that if Quetzalcoatl was bad, he would get angry and take revenge. He told him to test him, and to do something to him that would offend him. Uxmal did not know what to do, but Tezcatlipoca convinced him. He told him to take some corn, and burn it on a fire. He told him that this way he would show Quetzalcoatl that he was not afraid of him, and that he did not owe him anything. He told him that this way he would know if Quetzalcoatl was his friend or his enemy. Uxmal did as Tezcatlipoca told him, and took some corn. He threw it into a bonfire, and waited to see what would happen. But what happened was something terrible. The corn burned, and the smoke rose to the sky. The smoke reached the sun, and covered it completely. The sun was darkened, and the world was left in darkness. It was an eclipse. Uxmal regretted what he had done, and realized that he had been deceived by Tezcatlipoca. He wanted to ask Quetzalcoatl for forgiveness, but it was too late. Quetzalcoatl felt betrayed and hurt by Uxmal, and he distanced himself from the men. He stopped lighting them and warming them, and left them in darkness and cold. Thus began a new era of suffering and pain for men, who lost the grace and protection of Quetzalcoatl. Tezcatlipoca mocked them, and sent them plagues and calamities. The men repented of his mistake, and wept for Quetzalcoatl. They asked him to come back and forgive them. They promised him that they would wait for him, and that they would receive him with love. But Quetzalcoatl did not return, and he stayed in the sun. He could only be seen on some occasions, when the sun set or rose. Then you could see his silhouette like a feathered serpent, sliding across the horizon. It was a memory and a hope, that one day Quetzalcoatl would return, and he would bring light and peace to the worlds again.
