Odio verte sufrir. Será una vida difícil para mí, pero nada más por ayudarte tomaré tu lugar. —¿De veras? —dijo Cuy—. Eres muy amable. Entonces el zorro desamarró a Cuy. Y Cuy amarró a Tío Antonio al árbol y se escapó al campo de alfalfa para un último festín. A la mañana siguiente, el granjero vino a desamarrar su comida. Para su sorpresa, encontró un zorro. —¿Y ahora qué? ¿Otro disfraz? —dijo el granjero levantó un palo. —¡Oh no, papay, no me pegues! —dijo Tío Antonio—. ¡Prometo comerme uno de tus pollos todos los días del año!

También aprendí muchos cuentos, incluyendo unos de enredos y engaños que me hicieron recordar algunos que conozco de África. Un cuento de enredos y engaños habla de un pequeño animal (o una persona) que utiliza su cerebro en lugar de la fuerza para competir contra personajes más grandes y más feroces. En los Andes, en muchas ocasiones el personaje de enredos y engaños es un pequeño zorro gris, pero en uno de los cuentos el héroe es un conejillo de Indias. He oído y leído este cuento muchas veces en español: en un bello y antiguo libro boliviano, de la boca de un guía peruano en un pueblo en la montaña, en una revista boliviana para niños y de nuestro amigo Edwin Sulca, un tejedor peruano.

Dijo el granjero y se rió tanto que las lágrimas rodaron por sus cachetes—. ¡Qué ridículo! Mientras el granjero se reía, el zorro mordió la cuerda y se escapó sobre la cerca del campo. —¡CUY! —aulló al correr—. ¡Nunca me engañarás de nuevo! Y para asegurarse de eso se mantuvo alejado de Cuy por mucho, mucho tiempo.
