Our feet carry us southwest deeper into the middle kingdom. First an unimpressive cabbage farmer meets us on the road. Then Dui the escalator caused some challenges. We accosted a man riding a giant bird called a Suzuki. He is unconscious in the cart. His bird is dinner. Old iron stick rides on the ox. We don’t know why he is here.
Toda the yaksha is looking for us. He is a commander in the yellow army. We are in trouble for killing some soldier. It was an accident. They follow the book – the precepts of heaven. Daiyu realizes her name rhymes with the oxen. We tie the man – Gong to a tree. Sun why and Daiyu keep arguing politics.
