No doubt you’ve heard of me by now. My name is Meilin, daughter of Zhong’s preeminent General Teng, and summoner of Jhi the Panda. All my life I’ve received the very best training Zhong had to offer. Tutors taught me to read and write and paint and sing. I even studied combat under its finest masters.
I don’t say any of this to brag, but rather to plead for your help—because none of my training has prepared me for the infuriating riddle Abeke asked me this morning!
Those who have me want to share me, but those who share me have me no longer. What am I?
Normally I wouldn’t let such a childish thing as a riddle preoccupy my thoughts. My father—my home—are in danger, and all anyone seems to want to do is joke and play.
. . . But I can’t figure it out. Jhi is no help, of course. I tried asking her about the riddle earlier and she just yawned at me.
Help me answer this so I can move on to more important work?
