My name is Tafeth Keloi-anadi. This is the story of my change in fortune--a change I had no idea I wanted--and it began with frustration, with my fingers tangled in the laces of my bodice. When the beaded wooden curtain clacked, I glanced over my shoulder, unwilling to turn from the fire and display my clumsiness. Besides, the ability to enjoy warmth without fear was a sweetly valued aspect of becoming neuter.
When I saw my visitor, I did turn, though, tangled fingers and all. "Ke Shuli? I was not expecting you."
