The Plan


On the night when Pocky Cheng's plan was implemented by the Jiao-Gao Regiment, they ran

off with over a hundred dogskins my father and granddad had nailed to the crumbling village

walls, and stole the rifles Granddad had hidden in the dry well. Having carried out this phase 

of their plan, they went out to hunt dogs for some needed nutrition, as well as the warmth 

of the skins.


My grandfather was fuming mad.
