"Wen-er-gongxi is here!"
Wen Chao descends from the top of the ziggurat, flanked by two guards. He reaches a level within earshot of the unwillingly visiting disciples, but still high up enough that he can lord it over them without any kind of actual achievement to back it up. The herald announces him again.
"Look at you. Like a pack of mangy dogs," Wen Chao sneers.
Better to look like one than to be one, Wei Ying thinks, rolling her eyes.
Wen Chao studies them all for a moment, as though he had the wit to actually glean any information from the fact that literally nobody is looking at him like they respect him, then calls, "Bring her over!"
Wei Ying turns to look.
