The main conflict is that the narrator is being tortured by the Spanish Inquisition.  His inquisitors are playing a cat-and-mouse game wtih him in which he is near the brink of some horrible fate, but then he gets a sudden reprieve, only to find himself in the middle of an even more horrible torture.
