Tales of Old 42 – The Return of the Princess
Summary: By Ivan Sun Read by P.D.R. Lindsay After the Emperor learned of my refuge at the Diamond Silence Cloister, he dispatched a different son each year to seek my hand in marriage. Three Manchurian princes and their cavalry had come and gone. They would arrive not long after the full moon on the tenth month, bearing lavish provisions to bribe the Abbess into giving me up, but they would be gone before the first flurries of snow settled on our cloister's rooftop.
