Happy birthday to my shijie! I am sorry I am away for now but I am sure it is only a matter of time before we are home. Jiang Cheng, you must spoil her extra for me, please. Yanli, there is a gift
for you in the jingshi, a little white and purple box under the bed. I love you!
Lan Zhan, if you can read this, do not worry about me too much! It's not too bad! The people here don't like us very much, and there are traps everywhere, and we do not have much freedom but we are slowly winning them over with our charming behavior and baking skills. I made some paints and I'm going to share them, we will see if that will curry favor!
Now if only I didn't have to deal with having a new golden core that's uncultivated and untrained, and no flute
Is anyone taking care of the bunnies and Apple back home?
