Year Eleven of Hongzhi.
This is a particularly beautiful morning day.
At this time, Zhu Houzhao has just reached adulthood.
At this time, Wang Shouren and Tang Baihu are sharpening their blades, readying for the imperial examination.
At this time, the cold winds have descended and a long winter ravages the land.
At this time, within Count Nanhe’s mansion, the master’s intellectually disabled son, Fang Jifan, his heir…. begins his shameless, recalcitrant journey to prodigality.
