Feng Tian hears the rumbling of the hooves and realizes by the sound it must be a Beast Herd. Is that girl back from the stream yet? It could be dangerous if she is anywhere near that Beast Herd, they would crush her frail body before she could escape from them. She has no martial arts and doesn’t look like she could run or climb a gree with those thin arms of hers. He hurriedly throws on his clothes and leaps across the trees towards the stream.
When he gets there he sees the clothes still neatly placed on a rock. He feels his heart is about to explode realizing she might have been caught in the exodus.
He flies to the top of a tall Vredrum tree and surveys the area. Nothing. She couldn’t last a day here?
He sits on the branch trying to process this crazy day when he hears a slight whimpering sound coming from down by the waterfall. Feng Tian rushs down there and what he sees he doesn’t know if he should laugh or cry.
Directly before the drop a tiny figure is clinging to a piece of wood that is wedged between two rocks.
Her hair is plastered to her face with bits of debris hanging from it. She appears to be wearing only strips of colored cloth with strange designs on her body.
Relieved he found her he jumps down and grabs her into his arms and flys to the shore. She is half dazed as she looks up at him and softly says ” You can fly?” then she closes her eyes. He shakes his head and removes his shirt.
Feng Tian wraps her petite body up in it then leaves to retrieve her clothes upstream.
Feng Tian hesitates for a moment but decides if she doesn’t get warm clothes on quickly she might becomedeathly ill. Her body is shking from the cold and her lips are tinged with blue from the cold. You are a gentleman…you are a gentleman..
he blushes never having seen a half naked girl before,What are these garments she is wearing?
He realizes his only choice now is to take her to the bamboo house and get her warm .The makeshift campsite she and her father have would never work she would freeze to death. This situation is getting more complicated by the minute. Does this girl just attract trouble?
The bamboo house has several rooms so he places her in one with a brazier so she can get warm. He then realizes he will need to bring her father here too. How am I going to explain all this! What a headache.
Zhang Yu is wondering where his daughter and Feng Tian are the sky is beginning to get dark. He stokes the fire and looks up to see Feng Tian. “Did You see XiXi ? I’m starting to worry”
Feng Tian narrows his Phoenix eyes glaring at Zhang Yu. He isn’t in the mood to explain Now you are worried! Maybe you shouldn’t have let her wander off earlier old man! Not wanting to explain the situation he simply hits Zhang Yu’s acupuncture point rendering him unconscious.
He put out the fire and then tosses the old man on his shoulder and heads to the bamboo house. “I wish I could just send him there with a good swift kick instead.” He mutters to himself.
How do you explain your parenting skills?
He places Zhang Yu into another room and thinks he won’t awaken until morning, I will think of some explanation. Feng Tian walks in to the heated room where XiXi is sleeping. He smiles looking at her small body curled up under the white covers as though she is in a cocoon.
Only her little head is peeking out, her cheeks are flushed and her pink lips are parted as she breathes.
Feng Tian wants to kiss her lips all of a sudden. He feels a wave of desire he hasn’t experienced before looking at her delicate face resting on the pillow.
No what am I thinking, she is way too fragile to be mine, she would never survive at myside. One day in this world and she barely survived. He tenderly brushes her hair from her face, I will help them with their quest so she can return to the world where she belongs.
