Xan (Alexand) Medani is a farmer, who escaped the torture camps of Egypt as a boy. He grows flowers and rice and has been hired by Hong Kong Opera House to present their star opera singer, Edith MehXian, with a fine bouquet after her performance. Xan can’t afford to go to the opera, but heard Edith singing, whilst waiting backstage. He is rather nervous, as he thought her voice quite beautiful. CLICK Here for next chronological story.
