Visiting an old neighbourhood unearths memories of the past.

Yongshan is taking her son back to Licheng to visit relatives, and to see the town where she grew up. But when they get there, all she could find were desolate houses. Even the people on the street seemed not to recognise her. But then, in the rubble of her old neighbourhood, Yongshan finds something to grab hold of - a memento of the past.

Part of the Storycuts series, this short story was previously published in the collection Madwoman on the Bridge.
