Beast Herd Interrupts Her Swim…

 XiXi kicks a few rocks on her way to the stream trying to vent some of her anger. It’s true  it wasn’t very nice of me to use him as a test subject. But I don’t like to be teased particularly by a stranger! I didn’t think ahead what if they really were poisonous. I need to be less impulsive and not let him bother me. Dad and I have a lot more to worry about than that shameless man.

     After calming herself down she comes to the stream’s edge. I need to enjoy the water and let my worries dissipate for a bit. I wonder if it is deep enough for a swim?

     I could probably just wear my bra and panties and have a swim no one is around. Really that might make me feel much better. It’s still light out and the current seems slow. Okay I will she decides after thirty seconds of deliberation.

     Feng Tian tells Zhang Yu he is going to check the surroundings while it is still light out. Zhang Yu feels this man might be a godsend for him and his daughter. XiXi needs to look at the big picture. Feng Tian seems capable and could be a big help to us if we could persuade him. Feng Tian leaves, and as soon as he is out of eyesight he leaps in the air towards his friend Yun Tai’s bamboo house.

     Once inside he quickly removes his bery soaked clothes and the mask revealing his peerless beauty. “She had quite a good aim..haha.. What am I going to do with her? The little beauty is just too funny, she has no sense of propriety at all. What kind of place did they come from that let’s girls be so unruly?

     He goes into the hot spring behind the bamboo garden and soaks thinking about XiXi. No other girl has ever occupied his mind the way that little beauty does.  I actually think she doesn’t like me at all..no that is absolutely impossible! Seriously, if she only knew how popular I am. Handsome..check..Strongest of his seven brothers..Rich beyond her dreams..check..I am Immortal Cloud Sects’s most eligible bachelor.

     While Feng Tian is flattering himself in the hot spring a certain beauty is comparing him to her annoying desk mate at school.

     XiXi is splashing in the stream letting her cares fly away when she hears a thundering sound approaching from across the stream. She looks up to see a spectacular Beast Herd .

     Dust is flying but she can make out horns and beasts with huge torsos. Trees are swaying when they are hit by the onslaught. It’s like a movie some of the massive beasts are purple, there are a few orange colored, there must be a hundred of them.

     Are they going to cross this stream , I would be right in their path.

     She quickly swims over to a large rock protruding out of the water. If I can stay close behind this maybe I wont be crushed as they cross the stream. She clings on the rock as the stampeeding herd enters upstream.

     This must be the time of day they come here to drink and eat whatever poor creature they find. I need to remember to come earlier next time. Wait if there is a next time!

     The Beast Herd charges across the stream up about 1 km from XiXi. Thinking about the distance between them she feels a bit safe and breathes out a sigh of relief until she notices the water is churning all around her,  the beasts have caused the current to increase. The raging water sweeps XiXi downstream and her small head is bobbing up and down trying to get air to her lungs.

     The only thing on XiXi’s mind is I need to survive, I can’t leave dad alone here. She grabs a piece of wood that is racing past her and attempts to float on it. She is choking on the water but at least she isn’t getting swept under by the treacherous current.

      Clutching the piece of wood her knuckles turning white, she tries to comfort herself,Yes, this is better I can keep my head above the water.
