Hisho's Birds (2)

I've posted chapter 2 of "Hisho's Birds."

The nashi (梨) or Japanese pear looks like a small yellow apple. The texture and taste of the fruit is rather like a European pear crossed with a fresh cucumber.
As a form of address, Shishou (師匠) is used similarly to Sensei (or "Master" in the wuxia context) though it is a rank higher. An instructor in a doujou is a "Sensei." The Master who runs the doujou is the "Shishou."

Thank you very much for the new chapter!
I did not expect any so soon.

It is very interesting to see some background on what Hisho's job entails
and why he is so conflicted and unmotivated for the coronation this time.

Thanks for the great work, if you don't mind, I spotted a few typos:

Page 31: Last line, Hisho says: "Find with me", that should be "Fine".

Page 37, 5th paragraph, 2nd line: "But on no occasional would Emperor Li", shouldn't it be "on no occasion"?

Page 41, 6th paragraph: "the will to make a porcelain birds waning further." Non-concordance.

Page 42, 4th paragraph, 3rd line: "The enthronement ceremony will being giving the Rite a pass this time around", will be giving"?
