    Summary

    “Tell you what,” said Yushi Huang. “I’ll make you a deal, Ling Wen Zhen Jun.”

    Almost no one used her title at all, even fewer with respect. She couldn’t quite read Yushi Huang’s tone.

    “If you can tell me exactly what this is,” she nodded to the creature curled in the corner, "and what it does, I will turn it in the moment we get back for tagging and proper categorization."

    Ling Wen raised an eyebrow. So the enigmatic Rain Master already knew the creature's properties. "And if I don't?"
     
    Yushi Huang smiled, infuriatingly gentle. "Admitting defeat so soon? How unlike you."

    Ling Wen drew herself up and inclined her head, knowing herself to be rising to bait but seeing no real reason to resist. "I accept your terms."

    Summary

    She gestured, and the grandchild appeared. Grandma Harken took the time to finally look at the child—a girl, delicate as a quail, probably older than she looked. […] “She’s got desert in her, not steel.” Grandma nodded. She was something of an authority on the subject. “I’ll send her to you,” said Anna. “Like hell you will!” Grandma scowled over her tea. “I don’t need a girl and I’m hard to live with. And I’ll probably die running after mockingbirds.” “Then you’ll want somebody to point to where the body fell,” said Anna. She waved a hand. “Not now. Later. Soon, I think, but not yet. After you’ve dealt with this foolishness, perhaps.” “I said—” “You get your answer and she gets a teacher,” said Anna. “Fair trade.” Grandma Harken glowered, but she knew that Anna had her in a hard place. And the girl like a quail needed…something. “She broke her arm when she was small,” said Anna quietly. “She’s got cholla ribs for bones. We didn’t let the doctor see. I set it myself.” Grandma sucked the air in between her teeth. That was immense power and vulnerability, all at once. That was a child that should never be taken out of the desert. That was someone a little more like Grandma Harken than either of them were like fully human folk.

    Summary

    “I’d like to offer you a deal.”

    Daniel snorts. “And what? All it’ll cost is my immortal soul?”

    Le Bail raises an eyebrow in amusement. “I thought you didn’t have one of those.”

     

    Daniel gets one chance to do the night over and save his little brother but the task proves much more difficult than he thought.
