Section 1

An undelivered letter, the writing is smudged.

Dear Beloved Pillar, and sweet Nuno,

I miss you both very much, and I want to go back and start again. I wish we could find some goatbear together - I still have the Hombre in my holster.

Things are going badly here, for all of us. It's true what they say, Chabuti's gone too. If you feel a tremor in Huacanado, get out, go somewhere else away from people.

No-one knows why we fight, but we do. Tomorrow we'll line up in again, and so will they. Hold your knees for me, wish me luck.

When I lost my leg, I was as low as can be. I don't feel like a man anymore. I know what it must be like now - I've taken a lot for granted, like I took you for granted. I thought of how I treated you both, and I feel terrible, but I know there was nothing I could've done to be better. I just wasn't up to it. I am so sorry, and I wish I could tell you in person so that I don't seem like a coward.

I hold my knees for all of us, that we might see each other again, somewhere.

Your Mateo.
