Chapter 2 — Maqing Mountain, Specter of the Lantern

Excerpt from The Second Sun

“Ziqi, I know it’s been hard for you. But I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me,” sighed Leihong, “Ah, 往事不堪回首月明中[1], it’s hard to explain in a few words…. But please do not worry. No matter what people think of me, whether they slander or extoll me, I will always live by my five rules: love my country and my people, observe the law, remain steadfast, fight for the future, and finally, forever love Ziqi!”
