Joe wanted rest badly, but he was also curious about the drawings. As it always did, his curiosity took precedence over sleep, so Joe sat down at the table and began leafing through the sheets of vellum.
There were a few things that struck him as he went over the sketches. The first was the quality of them: Joe wasn’t sure that they could be called “sketches” at all. They were very precise, very detailed, and in many ways had the look of final plans. The second was the materials list: this castle was to be built in two weeks, yet it was exclusively made of stone, glass, and wood. There was no steel or concrete in it anywhere, not even in the framework or as reinforcement. The third and strangest thing he noticed about it—and Joe laughed when he saw it—was its size. Though the project included a complete and rather large foundation for a castle, the structure itself was not a castle at all, but rather a small tower in the corner of the plot.
