Another new short

Yeah, I’m on a roll … of two. I was hoping to write a novella, which is described as “not as long as a novel, but too long to be a short story,” so being in some vague area between 10,000 and 75,000 words. One thing I didn’t want to do is reach that goal by waffling on, so I was happy whether or not I did (I did, by the way, but only just. Very just.)

So, this novella is a semi-spinoff from the last short, tian. It’s not completely necessary, but it wouldn’t hurt to read that one first.

After that or otherwise, I present xian yi: a tale of the house of liu.

P.S.: I was going to rewrite portions into a more … PG rated story, because I cannot in good conscience show my mother a story that has the word “breasts” in it (unless they’re chicken I guess?) If you are a sensitive person, or happen to be my mother, I’d prefer to point you to: xian yi: a tale of the house of liu (censored).

Let me know what you think! Unless, of course, it’s something I don’t want to hear.
