42. The messenger caught up to us two hours into the march, we learned that the enemy were fifty strong, warriors of the Eagle, the much-feared personal bodyguard to the Teoti, we were very disappointed, we had fielded three thousand soldiers against a measly fifty, it looked as though our revolt was not being taken serious, they were heading in the direction of Tulancingo proceeding at a slow pace, they had no scouts out, the whole operation seemed to be very sloppy and undisciplined, the Teoti were not taking us serious at all, this captain of the Eagles certainly thought he was dealing with a rabble of misfits, a mistake he would not live to regret, with this information we sent the bulk of our forces back to Bo-elon, keeping only a hundred Toxon to engage the Eagle squad, we then hurried ahead to lay our trap in the small valley Coatl had chosen, we arrived there with plenty of time to spare, we took our places on either side of the valley, as we had planned time after time, six archers spread themselves every hundred yards to the road, Coatl and I had a vantage point on the highest ledge of the narrow valley, we watched as the column came down the road, the captain must have belonged to a Teoti noble family, he was being carried on a chair by eight slaves, the chair had a canopy to keep the sun off the aristocrat, as they came close to the valley, the first archer revealed himself, fired two shafts and scored two hits, the column halted and he released another arrow and another warrior collapsed, he then began to race away along the valley floor, the Teotihuacan army in hot pursuit, fifty feet further on and two Toxon arrows passed him and brought down the two leading Eagle warriors, he was joined by his two grinning companions as they ran ahead of the pursuit, the other four concealed bowmen remained hidden not being needed yet as the Eagle warriors showed no signs of giving up the chase, on reaching the fallen tree both archers turned about and stood waiting, bows at the ready, as the Eagle warriors came to within twenty paces of them, a whooshing noise filled the air, the Toxon warriors were exacting their vengeance, swift and bloody, each archer had been assigned a target and it became a matter of pride to see how many shafts you could put into the target before it dropped to the ground, it was over almost before it began, an almost comical ending came when the captain came around the bend, escorted by the remaining four Toxon bowmen from further down the valley, all of his arrogance and pride gone as the Toxon took it in turns to move him along by kicking his backside.
