Additional Note: I recognize that there's not enough research/planning in some part of this. (Specifically the heist scene ...) It will get fixed on the next edit, hopefully.

Please note that in Chinese, the term for Patriarch and Matriarch is the same, i.e. Liang Family Matriarch and Liang Family Patriarch are both "梁家族长".

Chapter 2:

See Chapter 1 for Summary, Notes, more information, etc. I start using more and more Chinese -- I believe the only untranslated characters I have this chapter are names, however.

...someone from Avi’s hometown who she hadn’t laid eyes on in five years... )

In November, I wrote over 50,000 words of a complete novella that is, to be honest, a bit of a self-insert and of very poor quality. Nevertheless, I shed sweat and tears (though thankfully no blood) over it for 30 days, so I'm posting it. I'm going through and editing my NaNo and posting chapters as I finish editing them. This should not take much time, unless I decide to add or expand on subplots (which is a possibility).

Title: (un)Talent
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, No Warnings
Author's Note/Disclaimer: I don't know who is going to take the time to read this, but I should probably make this clear from the beginning. Although characters may bear resemblances to people in real life (i.e. my main character and myself), all characters are entirely fictional and should not be seen in any way as revealing anybody's true nature. (In other words, just because parts of my main character's experiences are drawn from my own, other parts are not.)
Summary:

Avi Lau is taking a year off before she starts med school -- and she's spending that year in Beijing, teaching English during the day and partying it up at Vic's and Mix at night. She's having the time of her life here -- no tests, no responsibilities, no daily reminders that she's the first unTalented child in three generations. Too bad the very things she's trying to forget are about to reintroduce themselves to her life ...

In retrospect, the first sign of impending doom was when Avi woke up of her own accord early in the morning, alert despite a night spent out partying )
