The book slammed its spine into the table and cracked open the fiftieth page. Light shone from the page as it began to reveal more words. It would crave the attention of Claude, but it seemed that it did not want the attention of the indignant ninja that stood before a table. A calm voice of a man spoke and read the words as they appeared, but Kiang Li Zhao would not be one to hear any of the words. At all. But everyone else in the Archives would. Those that would hear the words would soon realise that the events that happened in the book had already happened, and one was about to happen again. But Kiang Li would not have an idea about this.
Li Zhao viciously punched the table as Mort tried and failed to give him reassuring words. A strong force shook and nearly shattered the table like glass as his fist met its aged material. An inhuman force. All of this power came from the source that was the mutilated puppeteer that the group has fought earlier, ultimately defeated by the Ionian.
The longing Shinobi would soon find what he looked for -a fragment of the map- which lay beneath his feet. He picked it up.
The group would soon realise that the event was indeed about to happen:
Kiang Li Zhao
I look down the table, contemplating why I have punched the table right when my friend was trying to give me reassuring words. But what was a larger mystery was how this solid aged timber nearly crushed itself beneath my fist. I look down, unknown to me where the map is. It does not come together here at all, especially knowing that this portion of the map is none other than a large rectangle piece that portrayed the library and a corridor behind it. I slide my foot, and I hear a rough, scratching noise. It is faint, but I see it right there under my tabi. A part of the map? This is a surprise, I do not recall seeing any maps when I last looked down. I connect it with the piece on the table. It connects with the library. It is not the mess hall, just as we last saw it, but rather it looks like an armoury. I look out to the door, wondering if it would be worth the risk to get to the armoury, just to be more prepared of any more encounters with these ninjas and constructs. Would it be worth the risk? I do not think so, but a part of me says otherwise.
Come back and see if the mess hall is indeed an armoury
