"When living in peace, one must think of danger."
These were the words Protector Chan's Master had left him. Now, the greedy eye of a king has landed on their sect once more. In the search to reach the Divine Peak, all too many will fall by the wayside, ground under the bitter dust of desire.
Between craving and enlightenment, between the heavens and earth, lies a single man. Making a choice, over what, in the end; is most important in the search for immortality.
A short story set in the A Thousand Li universe by Tao Wong.
