Quandary Resolution 4610
potpourri, fan death, flehmen, tranche
As I broke through the door of that basement apartment in the seediest tranche of Little Korea I feared the worst but still was unprepared for what greeted me -- the whir of wooden blades rotating overhead, the concentrated stench of a potpourri of wilted chrysanthemums,  roses and peonies strewn about the floor, and then the corpse itself, neck arched,  lips curled back in a hideous flehmen that exposed yellow teeth and a black tongue --  the city's fifth ritual fan death in as many weeks.
