"Chap chirp" is the first of many chirps we hear in this chapter, and it's a warning that something is wrong with the village. It's been a while since we've heard from Will, but he's heard that more than a dozen people have already taken their wills from the neighboring cities. He's worried that three people from the second rank will show up at once, and he worries that the village will be ruined. The villagers have been protecting Will, and they need to be protected at all costs, he says. The only thing that worries him is that the three wills will come at the exact same time, which would mean that they'd all be killed at once. He says that the villagers are taking care of him, and that's why they're keeping him locked up. He doesn't want to give up on him, though, because he needs to get some energy to get back to his normal self. He tells us that he'll feed him today, but that he won't let go of the handcuffs on his body. He thinks that the world is cruel, and this is why they locked him up in the first place. He wonders why they didn't just let him go when he first arrived, instead of locking him up when the village said that he was a human being. He feels like he spent years training to be a human, and now he'd be the one to seal his powers. He wants to know why they haven't released the seal on him yet, or if they've decided not to let him leave. He hears that a group of test-takers have come to the village recently, one rank one and two rank two. He hopes that they aren't coming to take his will.
