The day I was born, my family was relocating our ancestral grave. My father killed a gigantic snake on the verge of metamorphosis inside the coffin and nearly died from its bite. During my birth, a surge of snakes hissed ominously, and everyone said I was a harbinger of ill fortune. An old woman in the village sacrificed her life to save my father, leaving me a snake-shaped black jade, only to be fatally bitten by a snake. Just after my eighteenth birthday, the carcass of that very snake reappeared in our ancestor's coffin... Only the black serpent within the jade fights fiercely to protect me, revealing to me the secret of the serpent's coffin.
