Just a follow-up Author's Note:

Some readers put "New Dai Li" on Story Alert, presumably hoping for more drabbles, and a few people responded (if months past the cutoff) with their votes for which drabble they'd like to see expanded into a story. This note is to inform any interested parties that the latest chapter of my ongoing story "Sacrifices" focuses on the New Dai Li, among other Ba Sing Se people and institutions. Chapter 8, "Looking Back", includes details on the Boulder's role in the New Dai Li, their battle with the oni that had been trapped in a storage chamber, and even what happened to the bawdy-song-playing flute!

Happy Reading,

Kimberly T.
