One heart

The stones of one wall collapse into dust, leaving a naked Clay Man sprawled in a heap. The Clay Man looks at his hands, horrified. 'I AM ONE,' he rumbles, 'I AM NOT WE NOW. I HAVE BUT ONE HEART.'


Well, if you insist

The stones shake and grind […] After minutes of heaving, the masonry is still […] attention falls upon you, although nothing visible changes. Something will happen here, but not while you're watching. Good manners force you to tip your hat and depart.

Description summary:
The masonry moves but does not do anything else. You feel something interesting will happen but not with you there.
