Only a few days after the Spring Festival, I was finishing up all the preparations for our voyage through the kingdom when I felt an unusually cold wind blow towards me. It seemed to whisper a message to me. We're coming. That was it. The next day, reports of outbreaks of fighting and random violence as well as major and minor crimes have been pouring in. I fear that this evil, whatever it is, is already creeping in on us. And until I know it's safe, I will have to postpone my family's voyage.
