Having accepted the job offer by the troubled priest overseeing the construction of the Black Pyramid, Tenma and Zadi were given a more specific task. Namely, to defeat some rowdier-than-normal scorpions. Noticing what the priest said about "normally peaceful" creatures, Zadi couldn't help but feel a little guilty. It was becoming more obvious that the destruction of the Black Pyramid is linked with the hostility that these creatures suddenly possess. However, maybe there was an outside source involved that was controlling the creatures and using the Black Pyramid's destruction as an excuse or cover-up. Zadi was going through an endless number of scenarios in his head that couldn't be proven, none of them. This frustrated Zadi a little because an unsolvable case is somewhat annoying at the beginning. Zadi decided to outright ask the priest before leaving with Tenma to go defeat the scorpions;
"Before Tenma and I head out, you don't happen to be able to tell us what caused these creatures to become hostile now of all times? Seems odd that the only cause would be the destruction of this pyramid."
The priest seemed a little perplexed with Zadi's query. The priest thought it most likely to be the pyramid's destruction that caused the creatures to become hostile, yet Zadi stating such a connection to be odd confused the poor priest, "What do you mean by 'odd'? Seems reasonable to make such a connection, no?"
Being asked a question peaked Zadi's interest in explaining what he meant. After all, sounding smart felt good, "Well you see, if the only cause of the hostile creatures was the destruction of the Black Pyramid, then the creatures should have become hostile sooner rather than this late. According to when the news was released on the destruction of the Black Pyramid, the hostility should have started around five to six months ago-" Zadi realized that the priest became ever perplexed, most likely because of the nonsensical complexity of Zadi's assumption, and therefore ended his talking before it became rambling nonsense, "Ah, I'm just rambling now. Better get rid of those pesky scorpions, right Tenma?"
P.S. - Zadi and Proxy are neck and neck in a race to become Omega-tier! Who will come out on top!? (Proxy and I have around the same exp...finally)
