In Chapter 2, gifts are selected for Yuan-Ming. Six gifts are eventually decided on--six that seem odd at first: a sword, a saddle, a flute, a bowl, a box, and a kite. They are wrapped, and Prince Jen starts on the trip. At the chapter's end, Jen tries to help someone in the river, and is pulled in.
