    Summary

    Ten years ago, a gruesome string of murders ravaged Huajing City. The city's Behavioural Analysis Unit -- consisting of behavioural analyst Wu Xie, statistics genius Zhang Qiling, and homicide detective Wang Pangzi -- was tasked with the job of profiling and catching the serial killer. Instead of the truth, they found a quagmire of lies and intrigue. Suspicion fell on the least likely culprit, and a wrong was committed that sent far-reaching consequences through the lives of everyone involved.

    Now, there's been another murder. It could be a chance to right a decade-old injustice, or it could be a way to invite further catastrophe and solidify the triumph that evil celebrated in the past.

    Summary

    Thousands of years ago a choice was made that changed the fate of the Zhang Family forever.

    Now, the current Zhang Qiling has returned from the bronze door to find the world he knew has been destroyed. But, with far more questions than answers surrounding him, how will he find the truth?

    What happened to the Zhangs of Changbai Mountain and how did they go missing?
    Why did the Wu pull from the Jiumen Association after the Zhangs' disappearance?
    What are the Wangs seeking to achieve by placing so many spies among the nine families?
    Why has the Wu family been hiding their heir within Wushanju all these years?

    Can Zhang Qiling discover the truth behind decades of secrets, or is he truly the last of his kind and destined to the same fate?

    Or, is the future still undecided...


    This story is loosely based on 'The Last Unicorn', with my own plots and twists.

    Summary

    The forest sits bare and silent under the blanket of crisp snow. Bird wings shuffle briefly in the barren trees, sprinkling snowfall to the ground from wispy branches. The muted silence is broken by quick, panting breaths, faint and sharp. Light steps race through the pristine white, sharp claws digging into the frozen dirt buried beneath and shoving off with quick leaps. Torches wave with shouting in the distance, chasing it through the winding path through the trees.

     

    “Don’t let it escape!”

     

    “Shoot it!”

     

    An arrow whistles past his ear and Wu Xie pushes himself harder, tongue lolling out to the side of his narrow muzzle as his heart beats too loud and fast in his ears, angled back sharply as he sprints through the forest, three tails barely lifted to prevent beating more pain and bloody tracks into the snow for them to follow. Bird wings flutter and snow falls as they take off out of the trees, his amber eyes darting to them briefly. If he could fly-

    Another arrow whistles close and he stumbles and rolls with a sharp yelp as pain shoots up his hind leg.

    Summary

    They’re a half hour out from the cave where they’ve left the others to head for Thunder City when the rain stops. The poison fog won’t reach them immediately, there’s time to keep walking, to stop and take a break. Not a long one, but enough of one to relieve themselves and double check their supplies.

    Summary

    “... Elders called it, the curse of the earth. Some believed because the child of earth abandoned his mother and detached himself in order to guard the Bronze gate… As punishment, the earth didn't embrace the child when he returned... denying him the warmth, until his last breath…”

    It was August 17th.
    The day Wu Xie could finally fulfill his promise.
    His eyes were trained on the bronze gate in front of him, but among all the scenarios he imagined, none of them could have prepared him for what came next.
