Before there was light in the world, the gods of Teotihuacan, talked amongst themselves on how to get light. All of the gods were in the center of a large temple. One god asked, "Who of us will give light to the world?" But they all knew the task would not be easy. It was going to cost the lives of those who decided to do so, because they had to enter a big bonfire.
None of the gods volunteered right away. Soon one of the youngest gods, Tecuciztecatl, said in a big voice, "I am willing to enter the fire!" In one voice all the gods said, "Tecuciztactl is a great god, we congratulate him!" But there needed to be two gods, and there was no other god that was sufficiently valiant to accompany Tecuciztacatl. One god said, "s there no other god who is as valient that will offer themselves? Noone will offer?"
No one said anything, all the gods were silent for minutes.
