Marinette's mother has decided to enter a competition - but this competition isn't in Paris, it's in China. Marinette has never been out of her city of birth, and Sabine decides to take her along. This is possibly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for Marinette, and she's excited for it.
At the same time, Adrien Agreste also has to go to China, for two reasons - to improve his Chinese, and to model different outfits. Little do they know that fate has bound them together ...
Maybe the competition isn't the most important thing. Maybe it's what they learn from it, and how they progress afterwards.

For the story's purpose, Adrien's father is Hawkmoth.
Disclaimer: I do not own the characters in this story, only the plot. It is just a fanfiction.
