The Script Goes Terribly Wrong…

  Feng Tian couldn’t find a fan on his way into the courtyard with XiXi. Yun Tai’s sister must have taken it with her, well at least she left behind some beautiful clothes. Of course Yun Tai didn’t have one in his room.

     Feng Tian is imagining that imposing figure of Yun Tai’s in battle armour surrounded by Demonesses fanning him and starts to laugh.

     “What’s so funny? XiXi asks him when she hears him laughing into the air.He isn’t laughing at me is he?

     “Nothing, nothing I can’t find a fan so just stand slightly behind me as though you are shy.”

     He really needs to work on his improvisation skills. But, I said I would follow his lead so whatever. I wonder if this brother is anything like Feng Tian.

     Feng Tian had a plan all right but he was hoping Feng Che didn’t see through his lies. Lately, he feels he has perfected his ability to twist the truth and think on his feet. But, Feng Che really isn’t as gullible as this little beauty beside him.

     Feng Che has worn a hole in the stone table tapping his fingers waiting for Feng Tian and his patience has begun to wear thin. Right as he was about to use his powers to just fling Feng Tian back to the palace, two people chattering to each other nervously entered the courtyard.

     They saw him rise and quickly got into their roles.

     As though a curtain had just risen on a school play XiXi was in character and gracefully seemed to float into the courtyard beside Feng Tian.

     Feng Che who was known as the Ice Lord was almost caught off guard by her smile which seemed to light up the surroundings. It appears very natural and she has two cute little dimples. Her hair is unlike the women that he knowsthat have elaborate hairstyles filled with many precious ornaments.

     Her beautiful black  looks soft and is held up by a single jade pin, as though if you removed the pin it would cascade down her back. {if he only knew the real XiXi he would choke on his thoughts of a ‘delicate beauty’}

     XiXi remembered  what Feng Tian had said and takes a deep bow and says the words in the script exactly as planned. “Greetings to the esteemed Lord of the Heavenly Kingdom”

     feng Che watches her movements,  whenshe bows the dress reveals a glimpse of her jadelike breast which looks so pure and white next to the azure blue of the dress.

     Both brothers are immersed in their own momentary desire and stand there motionless.

     Feng Tian  is the first to come to his senses and grabs XiXi’s arm and places her behind him. She wasn’t ready for this sudden movement and trips on her hem. From behind him she curses him softly, ”What was that Feng Tian I did just what you said”

     Feng Che laughs to himself because even though she was whispering he could clearly hear it. So they rehearsed a play, let’s see them act it out.

    Feng Tian suddenly feels XiXi is incapable of not revealing her true self and instantly changes the script.

     With a flick of his wrist he puts a barrier around XiXi so she can’t move her feet from behind him or hear the brother’s conversation. When he did she felt a strange feeling come over her, she could no longer hear the birds or any sound at all. XiXi looks at Feng Tian and Feng Che and sees their lips moving but can’tmake out their words.

     She shakes her head and strains to listen. “Feng Tian what did you just do to meeee…?”

     “Brother you have seen her, she needs my help and I couldn’t refuse. She begged me for an entire day { if she heard this she would try to strangle me in my sleep he thinks} to accompany them as a guard and scout she believes me to be a simple mortal.

     “They are not simple mortals, the father is a powerful Sorcerer{third grade haha} and she is also one{is she? who knows} They have been sent here on a quest to stop an evil society from procuring the Beast Core of The Zehran Water Dragon.

     This society is transporting a female Dragon to enable them to remove it while they mate. We as Immortals must fulfill our duty to protect mortals.

     Feng Che is thinking when did this become our duty and when did you become so willing to protect mortals? He looks over at XiXi and wonders what kind of powers could that frail looking mortal possess. Although she looks interesting and the look on her face right now is very entertaining… Feng Tian’s barrier must be making her upset. He reasons though shouldn’t a capable sorceress be able to remove it..

     “Continue” says Feng Che

     … isn’t that enough? Feng Tian is thinking.

     “ They are going to stay here and prepare for ten days and then set out to the Dragon’s waterfall.” Feng Tian is thinking Yun Tai should be in seclusion so he won’t even know we are here.

     “ So they should only be on the island approximately sixty days at the most. Then they will return to their world and not come back to the island again.”

     “ Since you have so eloquently pointed out it’s our duty to help…” Feng Che considers his own agenda.

     “Is that a yes,you will talk to father and put off the discussion of marriage!”

     “You know you can’t use your powers as an Immortal while helping a Sorcerer on this magical island right? We have a treaty with the Lord of the Beasts here. You can’t upset the balance the High Council has maintained among the Mythological Beasts and the Heavenly Sects.

     “What?” Feng Tian

     “Did you ever listen in Tutor Jing’s class on Immortal Ethics!”

     “…” Feng Tian

     “I’ve decided I need some entertainment myself. I haven’t been on an adventure since the five brothers had their trials. I’m accompanying you” Feng Che says in a decisive tone.

     “What about all your meetings? The High Council can’t properly function without you! You are far too busy to come along!” Feng Tian is crying in his heart.

     Nooooo, why does my stiff brother want to come to spoil my fun? Could he possibly be interested in my little bunny? His mind can’t fathom how the script went so terribly wrong.

     “I will be back in seven days” ,Feng Che  uses his qingong and  disappears into the air.
