Azula was still asleep successivo to Cheng when Zuko lead the others to the lower floor. He couldn’t say for certain whether o not Cheng was sleeping too o if he was simply lying awake waiting for Azula to do the same.
Zuko knew it wouldn’t be long before his sister woke up when P’Li bounced down the stairs. She skipped right on over to the sofa and with her tiny hands, shoved Cheng to the floor so she could take his place. Naturally the plan had backfired when Cheng dragged Azula down with him. She landed face up on superiore, in alto of the man and woke with a startled cry.
