Q!â'nêqi?laxu meets Ô'?mâl2

Q!â'nêqi?laxu started and saw Ô'?mâl. Then Ô'?mâl pointed at Q!â'nêqi?laxu. Then he pointed at the forehead of Q!â'nêqi?laxu, and there was a hole in the forehead of Q!â'nêqi?laxu. Then he took revenge, and pointed from a long ways off. Truly, they were supernatural beings. Q!â'nêqi?laxu and Ô'?mâl were equal.
