It all starts when the boy asks to be part of a farm entourage, in the role of cook.eiro. Initially, the boss will not give authorization, for fear that he will not be able to withstand the intensity of the days on the road.

Zaquieu, however, will not change his mind. Then, one night, the farmer will call you into his office for a chat:

– A guy to be a cook for an entourage, Zaquieu, has to have a lot of competence. IT IS. You have to know how to ride like people and get to know the ways everything!

Zaquieu will reply that he is aware of everything. The farmer will go on to list the difficulties:

– Do you think you’d have the guts to cross a river on horseback?

– I believe so. But I could only say that after I try – the boy will say.

José Leôncio will end the conversation and send him back to the kitchen. Zaquieu will start to leave with his head down, but at this moment, the farmer will order him to return with Tiberius (Guito) to settle the details of the trip. Euphoric, the boy will react:

– You won’t regret it, Mr Rei do Gado! You will never regret it!

– If you come back to me alive, Zaquieu, for me already OK good size!

– I will come back. You will see! More alive than ever!
