Birds in cages, Jade, earthen ware tea pots and fine bone china mixed with bric-a-brac. Mr Lee was pleased with what he saw, but he wanted more.

In time Miss Chuang would become his bride and he would add bicycles to his items for sale. One generations later Mr Ling’s son would open a factory manufacturing bikes. Then Mr Ling’s grandson moved the family firm into car manufacturing. A dynasty was being formed, and behind it all was grandma Ling-Chuang, who smiled and remembered well the day she steered her bike into her personal choice for a husband.

Zorran turned to James and indicated that he was to enter a empty cell. As James lifted his gun Zorran smiled and James gun disappeared.

Lights dimmed and a door opened, James thought that he saw pulsating tubes and lights then smelt fetid air. He heard Spock tell the craft to return James to the Shakespeare’s Theatre. Unfortunately James found himself standing on Shakespeares stage in the year 1606, Macbeths lady lay dead at his feet.
