On the other side, labelled east using you know what knowledge, the sky was fiery with dark clouds.

Maybe I’m not supposed to be surprised at this, but I’ve never paid attention till today. And oh, I’ve never really been able to accurately repeat what my primary school teacher said about where the sun rises and sets. Did I pass this time?
