You're eleven, and you and Rui and Ji Ji are at Ji Fang's estate, far off in the wooded area away from the servants and the teachers. This is your free day, you're supposed to be practicing for a celebration, some fancy dance that you're supposed to do. It's odd how few adults are around now. So many are off fighting in the war against the Avatar and the Earth Kingdom. But the forms are still followed by those who are left, mothers, elders, the infirm, house guard.
But it has gotten so much easier to sneak away now. Which all three of you have done.
What is the contest Rui challenged you over? Who suggested that the loser has to kiss Ji Ji?
