HEAVENLY CRANE SCHOOL
LEADER LUK’S CHAMBER

Leader Luk Dai Yung removed a painting hanging from the far wall of his room to reveal a hidden compartment built into the wall.  He moved a series of small stone levers in a specific order, and the compartment door slid open smoothly.  From inside, he carefully withdrew a small velvet pouch.  He untied the pouch and took out a pair of silk silver-colored gloves.

“Teacher,” Ling Dong asked worriedly.  “Are you really going to give Sit Chung Nam these gloves?  He’s already tyrannical enough right now.  With these gloves, we will only make him more invincible and more terrifying to the pugilist world.”

Leader Luk sighed, as he glanced sadly at the gloves in his hands.  “Dong, these gloves are fake.”

EVENING
LAM MANOR
KITCHEN

Yi San rushed to the kitchen after returning from the marketplace, her bottle of love potion nestled safely in her pocket.  She causally sauntered over to the shelves holding several jugs of wine.  She watched one of the kitchen servants remove one of the jugs and place it on a tray.

Yi San quickly intercepted the kitchen servant and asked nonchalantly, “Are you bringing that jug of wine to Second Young Master?”

The kitchen servant nodded. “Yes, Second Young Master requested that I bring some wine to his chamber.”

Smiling, Yi San helpfully took the tray from the servant, eagerness building up inside her.  “Oh!  Let me help you.  I can bring that to him.  You are busy enough here with your kitchen duties.”

The servant beamed at Yi San and sighed gratefully.  “Thank you, Yi San!  I am especially busy tonight, preparing for Master and Mistress’ return.”

Yi San nearly hopped around in glee.  “I am glad that I am able to help out!”

The moment she walked out with the tray, she quickly took out her bottle of love potion and sprinkled a few drops into the jug of wine.

With a satisfied smile on her lips, Yi San exclaimed softly to herself, “There! That should do the job!”  She brought the jug of wine to Yik Wah’s room and knocked on his door.

THE FOLLOWING MORNING
LAM MANOR
LAM YIK LUN’S CHAMBER

Lam Yik Lun sat crossed-legged on his bed with fifteen assorted hairpins spread out on the bed in front of him. He picked one up, held it up toward the ceiling, and examined it with one eye squeezed shut.  He then repeated the procedure with the other fourteen pins. Finally, he put the last hairpin down and sighed.  Getting off the bed, he started to pace around the room as a hundred thoughts raced through his mind.

OUTSKIRTS OF NORTH STAR TOWN
CLIFF

“I hope Miss is not considering jumping.  Whatever obstacles Miss may be facing, I am sure there is a solution.  Perhaps I can be of assistance?”

A deep, cultured voice suddenly echoed from somewhere below the cliff, startling Yan.

Initially, Yan had only noticed the roaring sound of waves from the river below.  But now as she listened more attentively, she discovered the very subtle and melodious qin notes blending in perfectly with the clashing of waves, cleverly using the fury of nature as background music.

“Who’s there?”  Yan asked warily, staring down the cliff into the darkness.

A low chuckle resonated from the bottom of the cliff.  “It is interesting how fate works.  I have been looking for Miss for a long time, but I could not find you.  Yet, tonight, when I have stopped searching, Miss appears before me.”
