History Of The Butterfly Dragon

1981 June - The Field, The Bee And The Flower

The first story of the Butterfly Dragon which is narrated by Weltherwithsp in the field where young Ai Yuanlin Ying first meets the ancient Asian dragon. The story takes place long before Ai's arrival to the field and the events of Heroes Of Our Own. It follows the meandering path of a bee seeking to pollinate a flower. Instead the bee happens upon an empty pop can whose odor draws the bee. The story unfolds as the bee attempts to pollinate the pop can while a real flower sits right beside the pop can and watches seemingly frustrated. Written when I was 13 years old.

What Different Eyes See

A short story and sequel to A Piano, A Full Glass And The Disappearance Of Time. This time Alicia, Norler and Valerie put together a plan to create an equal access fund that will encompass the globe to cover the costs for any patient receiving treatments of the newly developed SY389 and its successor the SY390. They put together a delegation to repair the ties regarding medicine, tradition and culture between the West and East. Ai Yuanlin Ying (Heylyn Yates) joins them as an envoy for the Chinese using her status as an internationally recognized icon to assist the plan. As in A Piano, A Full Glass And The Disappearance Of Time, the delegation turns into a venue for overcoming some age old hurdles and cultural ignorance between West and East giving both a voice and ears. The delegation travels the Far East making five major stops along its path to encourage the Alliance to approve the creation of the fund.
