A/N: Previously this was a Twitter-sized story, and each chapter consisted of 140 characters; afterwards, I revamped it into a 50-words-chapter story. I believed that I would do this story more justice by allowing myself this freedom, but the readers felt that the chapters were still too short; their complaint has been heard, and I have chosen to rewrite this story for the second time. With the exception of the Prologue, which maintains its 50-words-long poetry format, the story will now be written in 100-words chapters.

1: Prologue

He enters The Gate of the Middle Kingdom,
learns the taste of unknown flavors;
yet, back he'll come,
to beg for the next course.

For he must seek where each taste came from,
Must conquer each of the one-hundred aromas he savors,
in order to become,
to open new doors.
