Inside, the guerrillas made Tim and Bunny open all of their belongings and asked them lots and lots of questions.
If the guerrillas saw anything that they liked, such as the tape recorder, radio, food, or money, they just stuffed it in their pockets or put it aside to take with them later. They emptied every tin, every shelf, and every box in the house. What a mess!
Finally one of the guerrillas walked over to Tim and said, "Get on the radio and call for the mission plane. Say exactly what we tell you to say. If you change one word, you're dead! Tell them that you are very sick and need to get out."
As Tim sat there, thinking about all this, the guard spoke again, roughly this time: "Make that call now -- or we will feed you to the buzzards!"
Tim looked at the gun pointing at him. He got on the radio and called, asking the mission plane to come out the next day.
