She Xiang - Open Orifices
HT, SP, LV ( .06 - 0.1g )


"She's young" - The stillborn baby
When Sally found out she was carrying a stillborn child that had not descended she feinted so her doctor gave her some smelling salts to intensely open orifices and revive the spirit. When she awoke she began to sing in b flat and run in bloody circles until she developed pain. When clumps began to emerge from her vagina she had eyes tired from crying.

Afterward Sally had many sleepless nights (cc: yin deficiency with heat) worrying about her (cc: pregnancy) and having flashbacks would sometime feint just thinking about it (cc: unconscious due to collapse). She swore never to have sex again, although she did simulate sex from time to time (note: synthetic form often used)
