Pezel awoke to the sound of shouting. With a yawn he sat up and enjoyed a big stretch. Blinking, he looked toward the tower site. All around it, men were shouting at each other. Some gesticulated angrily. Others simply shook their heads in disbelief. Something was up.
Pezel saw Almohaz was still sleeping. He gently shook his friend. “Hey, wake up.”
Almohaz slowly opened one eye, then both. “Demo, mada nemui desuyo.”
“Uh… what?” replied Pezel.
Almohaz looked at him quizzically and said, “Eh? Nani? Kotoba ga totemo okashi desu. Wakaranai.”
Pezel looked at Almohaz dumbfounded, then back at the people fighting around the tower. Something was definitely up.
