“Deed Yazhi silently led her younger sister closer to

water lapping against the river bank could be heard. The
two sisters held their breath and held one another as they
walked and listened. “Ge’” Listen Deed Yazhi said when
she heard the song faintly coming across the water. In
unison, the two sisters began to softly sing in answer to
their father’s song. Deed Yazhi wished she could see as she
peered through the black night.
