It was a surprise visit, and as such there were few preparations for it. Things usually done in preparation for the arrival of visitors were not done, and using words such as “messy” wouldn’t be out of place. In fact, it would be very much in place, much to the anxiety of the recently awoken resident. Surprise visit or no, the visitor was still a friend, and as such let in through the door, into the undisturbed natural state of things.
Upon noticing, the visitor friend only nodded, spoke the words “here too the gods reside”, and then moved on to more interesting topics.
