Translated by Bruce Humes

Short story in Chinese (斯迪克金子关机) by bilingual Uyghur author Alat Asem (阿拉提·阿斯木). Like much of this author's writing, this tale immerses us in a Uyghur world where Han just don’t figure; his hallmarks are womanizers, insulting monikers and a hybrid Chinese with an odd but appealing Turkic flavor.
