Jim: Culture Clash

The ground began shaking last year. Soon after that, the scientists arrived with their equipment.

They kept themselves apart from the village, preferring to live in their own tents rather than enjoy the hospitality we offered. We weren’t really offended, though. It’s not as if we understood much of what they said, with their phrases such as “magma incursion” and “harmonic vibrations” in almost every sentence.

It would have been nice to know what all those words meant but we never had time to find out. After all, we needed to sacrifice them to the Holy Summit of Burning Rock.
