Yuan Meng Chi’en 袁孟迁 has not slept well in a long time. Recurrent nightmares torment him. Every time he wakes, he can recall very little of his dream. It comes to him faintly, as if through a fog. The only image his mind can grasp is that of an enticing, lusty young maiden who stares sullenly at him before falling into slumber. She reminds him of his beautiful wife who died too young. But it is not her. He is sure of it. This woman must be 狐狸精, the “Fox Devil”, invading his dreams to tempt him. He tosses and turns, muttering a charm he learned from an old lady. The Fox Devil has been sucking his yang 陽 energy slowly but surely from his body, and he doesn’t know how much longer he can endure. If this goes on… sooner or later, his helpless soul will succumb to his unholy lust. [Exir Kamalabadi]
