    Summary

    Leaving when Captain Li Shang told her to was the perfect solution to hiding her gender. In hindsight, it might only have been the perfect excuse. Not that it matters when the Huns overtake China.

    Bookmark Notes:

    Mulan heard her grandmother’s voice in her head. An apple for serenity, a pendant for balance, beads of jade for beauty, and a cricket for luck. Myung would have insisted on piling Mulan with trinkets and heirlooms for her wedding, and Mulan missed the feel of the ones she’d worn to the matchmakers. She had insisted on an apple at breakfast, she still had her lucky cricket, but her jade necklace had been traded for a living dragon and nothing could help her gain her balance and strength in this position.

    Be brave, Fa Li’s voice said.

    This wasn’t a simple woman’s fear, worry over the temperament of a husband and whether he could provide for her. And it wasn’t just a man’s fear, worry over charging into battle and not limping out. Mulan was willingly walking into a dangerous marriage. Shan Yu would eventually find a way around Mushu. This was knowing the future was bad and putting herself at personal risk to fight in the only way she could, a warrior woman.

    She’d do it. She didn’t know how, but she’d do it. For her, for her family, for China.

    “I’m fine,” she told Shang, told Xialin and Huan. “I’m ready.”

    Shang might have frowned; Mulan was too busy staring at the doors in front of her to notice.

    Slowly, the doors opened. Mulan touched one hand to Mushu on her throat, who arched into her fingers, and the other to Cri-Kee hidden in her belt, who jumped into her palm. Together, they’d already come this far, survived so much. Shan Yu was simply the next challenge, and she’d conquer it.

    Tall as any imperial general, Mulan walked down the stairs in her dragon gown and into full view of the people of China.

    Be brave, she told them all, for I will save us all.
