Rui Is Happy

LiMei squints her eyes in pleasure. “Rui…yummy!…the fish is delicious.”

He wipes the flakes of fish at the corner of her mouth then licks his finger, “Hmm. Very.”

Comfortably sitting in his lap she takes another bite, “Do you think the medicine will work? Maybe we should make something to take him in down the mountain to Master Wong.”

  Rui has a faint smile, then that bastard really will die. “If he wanted the Master to treat him, do you think he would go up the back mountain and hide in a cave?”

  Thinking about the way Old Hermit seemed to be wary of being discovered LiMei wrinkled her nose, “I guess not.” 

     He holds a bottle of water to her mouth, “Drink.”

   Noticing the last fish on the fire needs to be turned he sets her down on the blanket. LiMei watches him flip the fish wrapped in the banana leaf and smiles, Rui is so handsome and he can do anything. 

   She impulsively stands up and hugs his waist from behind. She presses her body onto him, “My husband is so handsome.”

   He turns around and wraps his arms around LiMei then lifts her into the air. Teasing LiMei he spins her around, “Wife, if you seduce me right now the fish will burn.”

   LiMei giggles, “No..No! Not seducing!!”

   He laughs at her adorable expression and puts her down. He lifts her chin and kisses her half parted lips. “How can my wife be so cute?” Rui loves when LiMei laughs, her eyes sparkle like the stars and her face lights up. He has a devilish grin as he pokes her dimple with his finger, “Little goblin.”

   LiMei encircles his neck with her arms and stands on her tiptoes to kiss him. After she presses her soft lips on his, she coquettishly puffs out her cheeks and pouts, “I am the cutest! So don’t look at any other woman.”

   Rui bursts out laughing and cups her small face in his hands. His eyes are bent and his face reveals a hint of satisfaction, “Is my Baby still jealous?” He lowers his head and captures her lips with a possessive deep kiss. When LiMei is breathless he releases her lips. His heart is pounding and his deep voice sounds hoarse , “I told you I only love you… my beautiful sweet wife.”

   Smoke rises into the air and LiMei’s eyes widen as she pushes him towards the fire, “My fish!”

   Rui helplessly sighs and shakes his head, “The fish is more important than your husband kissing you?”

    LiMei blushes, “Ahh..of course not…but.”

   Rui chuckles as he takes the fish off the fire. Haha.. she looks just like a greedy little cat..

    While he moves the fish to the side of the burning wood LiMei sits on the blanket. She leans back on her hands and faces the cloudless blue sky, soaking up the sun, she remarks, “It is hard to believe last night was storming and freezing cold.” She rolls to the side and picks a blade of grass by the edge of the blanket. ”It is so hot now even the ground has dried.”

   He lazily walks over and sits next to her. When he opens the banana leaf a fragrant aroma and steam rises from the perfectly cooked fish. LiMei drools while hungrily staring at the herb-covered fish. “I think the fish you cook is better than any I have ever had in a restaurant.”

   Rui happily smiles listening to her flatter him. “I think you are just hungry.”

  LiMei shakes her head in denial, “I’m serious.” Sitting with her arms wrapped around her knees she compliments his skill. “The fish is flaky…flavorful with the wild mushrooms and the bamboo shoots are really tender.” She gazes at the flowing stream then sighs, “It is so beautiful up here I wish we could stay longer.”

   He plays with a few loose strands of her hair, “We could stay here one more night if you want. The brat’s cave isn’t too bad.” I hope that bastard Wong Kai is well enough to leave after drinking the antidote.

   “ Yeah.” She picks up a piece of fish and mushroom and feeds Rui, “I was surprised when I saw the inside. I guess Old Hermit helped Baobei make the bed and the furniture .The night pearls are cool.”

    “En.” Rui lifts his lips into a sneer, If Master knew the kid stole the priceless night pearls from the treasure room he would be furious. He spent a small fortune for those artifacts.

    Beads of sweat are forming on LiMei’s forehead, “After we eat, I want to bathe in the stream.”

   “There is a hot spring beyond the forest. Do you want to go there?”

    LiMei’s eyes light up, “Sure!”

     Rui’s ink black eyes are full of pampering as he feeds her the rest of the fish and the wild vegetables. He loves the way she savors every morsel and hums in satisfaction. After she swallows the last bite LiMei lays down on the blanket and the short crop top exposes her flat stomach. Patting her belly she exclaims, “Ahh..Hubby, that was sooo goooood.”

   He lays next to her and kisses her stomach, “I am still hungry.”

   LiMei giggles, “ That tickles…ahh..Ruiii!”

   His kisses move up her stomach and his Adam’s apple rolls. LiMei’s face turns crimson red, “We are outside!”

   His lips curl up in a playful arc, “Don’t be shy. No one is here.”

   “Old Hermit.”

   “The medicine will make him sleep for a few hours.” He lifts her top and unhooks her bra as his other hand slides into her shorts and rubs her mound.

      The beast inside of him can’t be restrained when he sees LiMei’s alluring appearance as he teases her. Her cheeks are rosy and her beautiful green eyes are covered in a seductive layer of mist as she purrs, “Stop…”

   Rui sucks on her neck and LiMei gasps in pleasure as his thumb grazes her nub back and forth then inserts a finger into her tight flower cave. Rui sucks then bites her earlobe, he whispers in her ear, “My little wifey is so wet.” He takes out his finger and it is coated with her glistening honey. “I don’t think you want me to stop.” Rui sucks on his finger then kisses her tempting red lips.

   Luz is watching them from the edge of the forest. She smirks, It doesn’t look like Qin Daiyu  and Qiao Rui are in a hurry to return to the Compound. I need to kill Wong Hao while he is weakened. I know I’m not a match if he is at full strength. I can capture her later.

    Rui entangles LiMei in several different positions until she begs for mercy, unable to withstand any more of his plundering. When she is thoroughly spent from climaxing several times and enduring his rampant thrusting, she passes out from being overly stimulated and exhaustion.

Thinking about her wantonly sitting on top of him and moving up and down on his c*ck he grinned. Rui kisses her forehead then licks the salty tears on her face. I’m sorry Baby, but I need you…you can never leave me.

The demon inside of him wanted LiMei to experience ultimate pleasure so she would addicted…never again threaten to leave. So in the last moments of their lovemaking Rui used a forbidden sexual technique. Rapture engulfed LiMei’s body and she burst into tears as she convulsed from the euphoric feeling.

   He has a gratified expression on his handsome face seeing his essence combined with an excessive amount of honey dripping down her slender thighs. After indulging in her sweet body, Rui feels an indescribable feeling of happiness. His dark eyes are filled with obsession without a trace of guilt for using the demonic sexual technique.

In the past he had held back many times knowing the dark yang was too powerful. But, after the despair he felt when LiMei said she would leave him last night he was unable to suppress his evil desires. My little wife, I never felt such pure bliss until I met you. You are breathtakingly beautiful and my most precious treasure. I can’t risk losing you

Smiling, he embraces LiMei’s limp naked body into his arms and kisses her puffy lips, red and swollen from his kisses. After grabbing their clothes he carries LiMei to the hot spring. The medicinal effect of the water will heal your body.

Mystery Woman

   Bending down LiMei checks Wong Kai’s breath then opens the cloth bag. When she smells the herbs for some reason she feels the scent is familiar. He must be poisoned . She hurries back to where Rui is standing by the stream. Grabbing his arm she says, ”  Come with me, Baobei’s friend is lying on the ground by the bushes.” 

   “What friend?”

  “Baobei called him Old Hermit.”

  Rui puts down the sharpened branch and follows LiMei, expecting to see an old man. When he sees Wong Kai a flash of anger crosses his face. His voice sounds cold, “I can’t help him.”

  LiMei’s eyes are wide, “Rui! You have to help him! He could die!”

   “When did you meet him?”

  “Last night in the cave.”

  Rui grabs her arm and his cold eyes are filled with killing intent, “He spent the night in the cave?”

  “ was storming.”

  He drags her away, “Let’s go.”

  “NO! Rui! He is a good person, he gave me clothes and a medicinal fruit to fight the cold. He is Baobei’s friend!”

 “Naive! That man doesn’t do anything without a purpose!” Rui pictures the small cave and LiMei changing clothes in front of Wang Kai.  His dark eyes have rolling flames thinking about when she mumbled ‘Old Hermit’ when he was touching her earlier. Did they sleep in the same bed? He lowers his head and pinches her chin, his icy voice sends chills down her spine “Did he touch you?”

   She quivers, “Of course not! Rui…don’t be like this. You are a doctor, you can’t leave him like this he will die!” She wraps her arms around his neck and stands on her tiptoes then kisses him. Afterwards she gazes into his eyes trying to coax him, “Husband, you are the most handsome when you save someone.”

  He can see his reflection in her clear eyes full of admiration and love. Rui softens his tone, “Baby, if I help him Master will be very angry.”


  “It is complicated.”

“He said he was leaving the island, Master Wong doesn’t need to know. If he didn’t give me the medicinal fruit…well…I would have been cold and miserable. It is repaying my debt to him.”

 Rui knows if the old man finds out he helped him he might not cure LiMei. He sees LiMei’s worried expression and nods unable to refuse her plea, “You can’t mention this when we return to the Compound.” 

 “I won’t.”

Rui lifts Wong Kai onto his back and LiMei picks up the cloth bag. When they enter the cave Rui throws Wang Kai on the small bed. He orders LiMei, “Wait for me by the stream.”

 “I could help. Do you want me to grind the herbs?”

 “No. I need to give him acupuncture first.” I need to take off his shirt and I don’t want you looking at another man!

“Okay. I saw some wild mushrooms I will go pick them.”

“Don’t go far.”

LiMei hugs him, “Rui…thank you.”

He brushes the loose strands of her hair behind her ear then caresses her cheek, “I don’t like you thanking me for another man.”

She smiles exposing her cute dimples, “You are the only man in my eyes. No one is more handsome than my husband.”

 Rui tightens his embrace and kisses LiMei until they are both breathless. When he finally lets her go his voice is hoarse, “Baby, you can’t ever forget you are my wife. You are mine.” 

 Her eyes bend into a crescent shape, “Husband…say that again.”

His lips curl up into a satisfied smile, “Wife…You are mine” He gently licks and sucks on her lips and LiMei softly moans, “Husband…”

 Rui reluctantly loosens his arms around her thin waist and reminds her, “Don’t wander too far away, don’t go into the forest.”

 “I won’t.

Rui watches her leave then takes the silver needles from the black backpack by the table. He sneers, “Wong Kai you are lucky my wife is soft hearted or I would leave you to die.”

  He walks over to the bed and lifts Wong Kai’s shirt. His chest is covered in scars and Rui recalls the scene when Wong Hu punished him then banished him from his sight. You certainly have balls to come to the Island. Even though you are his son he didn’t hold back when he whipped you within an inch of your life.

  Rui sticks two needles into Wong Kai’s chest close to his heart to stop the poison. Then he inserts several more needles, when he finishes he walks over to the cloth bag. Removing the medicinal herbs he breaks open a pod and several small red seeds fall onto the table. He wonders who would poison Wong Kai with such an insidious poison that requires fire seeds as part of the antidote.

  Beyond the cave LiMei picks wild mushrooms while happily humming a song. I should have trusted Rui instead of immediately jumping to conclusions. Suddenly a voice sounds behind her, “Qin Daiyu, what a surprise.” This is an unexpected windfall I came looking for that prick Wong Kai and stumbled across this treasure. I should rake in the cash, killing him then deivering Qin Daiyu to Kuang Fu.

 LiMei turns around, “Huh?”

  The woman notices her bewildered appearance, “It hasn’t been that long…you have forgotten me?”

LiMei has a confused expression, “You must have me mistaken for someone else. My name is Feng LiMei.”

Luz laughs, I would never forget you. If it weren’t for you Kuang Bo would be mine. Luz bends down and kneels in front of LiMei studying her expression then has an idea. She has a malicious gleam in her brown eyes, “Oh…sorry you aren’t my friend.”

 LiMei smiles, “Are you one of Master Wong’s disciples?”


 “Do you know my husband, Qiao Rui? He is in…” LiMei remembers Rui said not to let anyone know about Wong Kai.

 “…” Qin Daiyu got married? Who is this Qiao Rui? Does Kuang Bo know?

 LiMei quickly stands up, “I should get back to the Compound.” She walks the opposite direction of the cave and Luz doesn’t follow.

 Luz watches her leave, I will kill Wong Kai first then grab the bitch. He should be around here somewhere if my information is correct. 

 After she walks into the forest LiMei nervously glances back to see if the woman is following. She breathes a sigh of relief, good… She wrinkles her forehead,Qin Daiyu..why does that name sound familiar? 

Rui finishes feeding Wong Kai the decoction then leaves the cave to find LiMei. Looking around the stream he doesn’t see her and has a worried expression. I told her not to go into the forest!

 LiMei is digging bamboo shoots out of the ground when a tall shadow appears in front of her. She looks up and meets Rui’s eyes that are as pitch black as a bottomless abyss. He lifts her up into his embrace, “Don’t you know how to listen? I said don’t go into the forest!” 

 “I..I saw these bamboo trees and thought bamboo shoots sounded good.” I forgot because I wanted to get away from that female disciple.

 He hugs her tighter, “You could have waited for me. There are beasts in this forest.’ He kisses her forehead, “Well let’s go back You must be hungry.”

 LiMei is scooped up into his arms and he briskly strides back to the stream. He sets LiMei down on the large rock, “Don’t move.”

 She giggles, “I want to wash the mushrooms and bamboo shoots.”

  He takes the basket, “I will.”

 LiMei’s green eyes are sparkling as she watches him takee the sharpened branch and easily spear a large fish. She claps her hands, “That was so fast!”

  He smiles as he tosses the fat rainbow colored fish into a bucket. Continuing to fish he catches three more then washes the vegetables. 

   LiMei quietly gazes at Rui as he grills the fish and place the vegetables wrapped in banana leaves on the fire.  She walks over and hugs him from behind, “Husband, you are so amazing!”

   Feeling her warm body pressed on his back he hopes Wong Kai wakes up soon and leaves. The medicine should take effect by the time we finish eating lunch then I can be alone with LiMei


By The Stream

    Rui covers LiMei and gently kisses her forehead then pulls on his pants. After slipping on his shoes he grabs the bucket to go to the stream to fetch water. He notices on a shelf there are several containers of medicinal herbs. The brat collected all of these?   Out of curiosity he opens a small trunk next to the shelf and raises an eyebrow staring at the men’s clothes inside. He was too agitated yesterday to think about the oversized men’s clothes LiMei was wearing. Whose clothes are these? He searches through the trunk for a clue but can’t find one.

 When he exits the cave he squints in the bright sunlight and puts on his sunglasses.  It is already extremely hot,  hard to believe last night there was a raging thunderstorm. The weather on this island is very strange.

  Rui splashes water on his face in the stream then sits on a rock. He runs his fingers through his wet hair then puts his head in his hands. Deep in thought regretting being unable to control his chaotic emotions and beastly behavior he slams his hand on the rock. Dammit! 

  To vent his frustration he picks up a flat stone at his feet then angrily hurls it across the stream. After he composes himself he fills up the bucket and walks back to the cave. Once inside he takes a jar off the shelf and grinds the herbs slowly adding water. After blended together the medicinal herbs have a milky color and creamy texture, he adds some crushed mint he found by the stream. 

  Sitting on the edge of the bed, Rui gently lifts the blanket covering LiMei. His heart tightens into a knot staring at her delicate body covered in glaring red marks and purplish bruises. Riddled with guilt he leans down and kisses the red finger length imprints on her delicate clavicle. Using his internal energy he heats the water then lightly runs the wet cloth over her slender body. After finishing washing her slender body he carefully applies the medicine. 

  LiMei can feel a cool sensation on her skin and inhales a light mint fragrance. She slowly opens her eyes and softly murmurs, “Rui…”

   He embraces her thin body and tenderly places a feathery kiss on her forehead, “Baby, I’m sorry I was too rough.” His warm breath sprays on her neck as he leans into her ear, “Forgive me, please.”

   “I thought I was dreaming. Wait…” She blushes and pulls up the blanket, “Where is Baobei?”

  “Yang Chenxi took him back to the Compound.”

   She breathes a sigh of relief, “Oh..that’s good.”

  His voice tinged with a hint of desperation he pleads,“LiMei, don’t ever say you are leaving me okay?”

  LiMei feels conflicted although Rui said it was a misunderstanding she still has a feeling there is something going on between him and Su Wanqing. After the way he tossed her on the bed LiMei thinks he wants her body not her…  a voice inside her mind torments her, “How could he be so fierce if he truly loves you? Really… you stupid girl…what do you have to offer a man like Rui…you are a very bad person. Hiding your true self …deceiving him. You know he wants a baby and you are well aware you can’t get pregnant…  that despicable man surnamed Fu made sure of that.’

LiMei holds her head and her eyes are teary. Rui lifts her chin, “Baby, are you in pain?”

She shakes her head trying to silence the voice inside her head. “I..I am just hungry.”

He gets up and takes an apple from his backpack. “Eat this. I will catch some fish to grill before we go back.”

Rui turns to leave and LiMei holds onto his shirt. “I will go with you. Hand me my clothes, they should be dry.”

He helps LiMei put on the red top and blue jean shorts. After he ties her shoe laces she stands up, her legs are weak and her knees buckle.  As she collapses Rui quickly lifts her into his arms.

She takes a bite of the apple and after she swallows she questions him, “Rui, how did you find Baobei’s cave? He said no one knows about it.”

 Rui doesn’t want to mention Su Wanqing so he lies, “Yang Chenxi.”


  He carries her to the stream and sets her on a large rock under a Banyan tree. “I am going to find a branch to use to spear the fish. Don’t move.”

  “Okay.” LiMei chews the juicy apple and watches Rui as he walks towards a wooded area. Baobei was worried about Jack and said he wished Yang Chenxi knew where to find them. Why would Rui lie? 

   Rui comes back with a branch and takes a knife from his pocket to sharpen the end. He glances over at LiMei, she is lazily leaning back looking up at the billowy white clouds. The sunlight is filtering through the leaves of the tree onto her upturned face and the slight breeze blows wisps of her raven black hair. Her eyes are bent into a crescent shape and her red lips are glistening with juice. His eyes are filled with fascination, LiMei looks like a delicate little fairy. .. so incredibly beautiful and fragile.

    As he stares at LiMei’s flawless face and innocent expression the guilty feeling resurfaces. He thinks about how he mercilessly tossed her in bed ignoring her pleas and grips the knife…The thought she might leave me made me go crazy. I wanted to lock her up where no one else can see her but me.  

 LiMei smiles at him and his heart skips a beat as she walks towards him. She holds the half eaten apple to his lips, “So sweet…taste.”

  He stares into her clear and sparkling eyes then bites the apple licking her fingertips. “Very sweet.”

Wrapping her arms around his waist she nestles in his broad chest listening to his rapid heartbeat. Inhaling his distinctive masculine scent she sighs and gazes up at his peerlessly handsome face. I don’t care if I’m not worthy of him…I don’t care if Rui only wants my body. When I am next to him I am so happy.

  Rui drops the knife and branch in his hands and puts his arms around her. His voice is hoarse, “LiMei…” 

     He lowers his head to kiss her and she closes her eyes. Rui gently kisses Li Mei then nibbles and licks her ear. “ Baby, you are my wife…now and always.”

 His low and intoxicating voice makes her dizzy and she melts into his warm embrace. Suddenly her stomach rumbles and Rui chuckles, “I will catch some fish.”

 “Okay, I will get some banana leaves to wrap the fish and I saw some berries.”

  “Don’t go far.’

    Not faraway Wong Kai is picking the green and blue buds off a Brinyus plant. His body is covered in a layer of cold sweat as he hurries collecting the herbs. Bent down hidden behind dense vegetation he tries to focus, his vision blurry from the effects of the poison.

   When he  hears movement by the stream he crouches lower and peers through the bush. He inwardly curses, if I wasn’t weakened from the poison I would enjoy appearing in front of that arrogant bastard. I would love to see the shock on his face if I told him his wife wanted to leave the Island with me. Unfortunately, I am too weak. 

   His hands are trembling as he strips the last bud from the plant and shoves it into a cloth bag with the other herbs he gathered. Suddenly his body convulses and he falls to the ground.

   LiMei is pulling banana leaves off a tree when she hears rustling then a thud not far away. She walks over and sees a hand clutching a cloth bag at the edge of a thick bush with white flowers.

   Staring at the familiar man sprawled on the ground her eyes widen, “Old Hermit…”

Let’s Divorce

Readers 18+ please enjoy!

    Rui opens his eyes and smiles gazing at LiMei’s beautiful face. I guess I can’t let you out of my sight or you will cause mischief. He takes her leg off his thigh then quietly gets out of bed thinking Yang Chenxi and Baobei are also in the cave.

When he sees the note on the table he has a devilish grin on his face and walks back to the bed. Very good.

Rui lifts the covers and lays on the bed. He caresses LiMei’s cheek then runs his finger across her half parted lips.  I should punish the little girl for making me worry. Kissing her soft lips he sucks and nibbles on them savoring the sweetness. Not satisfied he greedily enters her tempting mouth with his tongue and eagerly sweeps it across her teeth. While entangling his hot tongue with hers he lifts the oversized sweater and rubs her breast with his large palm. LiMei softly moans as her body heats up from his kisses. 

 Suddenly she wakes up and her eyes are blurry as she pushes Rui away. In an almost inaudible voice she mutters, “Old Hermit, are you crazy!”


 LiMei sees Rui’s handsome face and gulps down her saliva, “Rui? Whe..when..why..”

Listening to her garbled speech and seeing her adorable confused expression he chuckles, “What were you dreaming about?”

 She flutters her long black eyelashes and pulls down the sweater that has been pushed up to her neck. “Ah..I don’t know. Wait, where is Baobei?”

 He runs his fingers through her tangled hair and wraps a strand around his finger. He inhales the refreshing fragrance and his body reacts. “Yang Chenxi took him back to the Compound.” He nibbles on her ear and in a breathless voice whispers, “It is only the two of us.” He kisses her neck and his hand under the sweater roams up her flat stomach to her soft round breasts.

 LiMei remembers about him and Su Wanqing and turns her head. “Stop.”

 Rui’s pitch black eyes are hazy with lust, “Baby, I said we are alone.”

She puffs out her cheeks and in an aggrieved tone responds, “Well…you…you go back too. I don’t want to see you.”

  Roughly pinching her chin he forces her to look at him. There are rolling flames in his pitch black eyes as his pupils shrink dangerously. Unable to control his temper his deep voice reflects his inner rage , “Say that again.”

Covered with a thin layer of mist, LiMei’s deep green eyes flicker, “Go back. Go to your lover and leave me alone.” Tears start trickling down her cheeks and she bites her lower lip trying to control her emotions.

Rui’s expression changes and he strokes her damp cheek,” Baby, don’t cry “What are you talking about?” He touches her forehead with the back of his hand, “Do you have a fever?”

“I don’t want to come between you two now that you are back together.”

“LiMei you aren’t making any sense.”

 She clutches the blanket in her small hands, “You don’t have to pretend you don’t know what I mean. I will get a divorce as soon as we return to China.”

  Rui feels like he is losing his mind. His eyes are as dark as a bottomless abyss and filled with obsession. The thought of LiMei leaving him brings out his inner beast, he pulls LiMei into his arms and tightens his embrace, “No divorce! Never! I will never let you go! You are mine!

  LiMei starts crying uncontrollably and her body quivers. “It’s not fair…we shouldn’t have come here. I don’t want to share you.”

   He rubs her back to calm her down and softens his voice, “Baby, you aren’t making any sense. Share with who? You are the only one…I love you…only you. I will always only love you.”

   Her lips are trembling,“Don’t lie…Baobei saw you.”

   “Saw what? What did that brat say?” I will wring his fat little neck!

  “He saw you kissing Su Wanqing behind the bushes.”

   Rui blurts out, “I wasn’t kissing that woman! I was strangl…I was… warning her not to scare you with her damn snakes! There is nothing between us…I am only polite to her because she is Master Wong’s adopted daughter.”


   “LiMei, he is a kid with a big imagination. How could you believe his nonsense?” He licks the tears on her face then gently kisses her watery eyes. Gazing at her tear stained face in a low and magnetic voice he continues, “Baby, you are my everything. You know how worried I was when I heard you came to the mountain and a storm was coming. If anything happened to you…”I would fucking lose my mind. 

  LiMei wraps her arms around him and nestles into his chest. She sniffles, “I was so hurt…it felt like my heart was shattering. I saw the way Su Wanqing looked at you and she is very beautiful…”

   He buries his head in her neck and his eyes are overflowing with tenderness, “No one is more beautiful than you LiMei.”

   Crystal teardrops are glistening on her eyelashes and her cheeks are tinged pink. Rui’s heart races gazing at her alluringly delicate appearance. He tightens his embrace, pressing his lips on hers his heart is restless. Escape from me? Not is this lifetime or the next! Filled with paranoid possessiveness he deepens the kiss making LiMei feel dizzy. When he finally ends the domineering kiss LiMei is breathless and her messy suspicions are swept away.

  Rui caresses her cheek, “Promise me you won’t do anything so foolish again. You need to trust me…I would never do anything to hurt you.” He gently kisses her forehead then his soft kisses trail down her face .

   Unable to suppress his rising desire he presses LiMei underneath him and pulls the large black sweater over her head then deftly unhooks her bra. Tossing it to the side his lustful eyes flash red as her snow white breasts are exposed. He licks and sucks on her soft skin as LiMei arches her back. She moans in pleasure as his tongue twirls around her erect bud and his hand moves down her body. His touch is making her skin feel like it is on fire.

Rui spreads her thin legs and runs his hand up her thigh then squeezes her mound. He spreads her pink petals and as he inserts his slender finger into her tight tunnel he teases, “My Baby is so wet already.”

    His c*ck is throbbing as he enters LiMei and begins slowly moving inside of her. His gentleness doesn’t last long and his actions becomes more fierce as his turbulent mind keeps repeating the phrase ‘I want a divorce’. Consumed by possessive and dark desire there isn’t a bit of sanity left as he speeds up his thrusts ravaging LiMei’s body.

 Ignoring LiMei’s pleas for mercy he pounds into her tunnel like a madman. Grasping tightly on her slender hips he plunges into her depths, continuously hitting her sensitive spot. Honey flows down his thick shaft as LiMei’s petite body writhes uncontrollably on the bed. Overwhelmed by the intense heat burning in her body she begs, “Ahhh…too deep….slow down…Ummm…Ahhh..”

  Rui’s ink black hair hangs down messily and sweat drips down his forehead as he growls in a hoarse voice, “Call me Husband.”

    Her body convulses as she whimpers, “Husband…Pleeeaasssee… Mnnnn…” He repeatedly hits her wall where she is most sensitive and LiMei quivers as honey gushes out down onto the bed.

LiMei’s breathless soft voice is fuel on the fire and Rui turns LiMei over and lifts her hips. He continues his siege plunging his huge c*ck deeper and deeper. Dare to say you will leave me… I will fuck you to death!  His eyes are filled with turbulent emotions as he slaps her round bottom leaving red handprints.

The pain and pleasure of his huge c*ck poking her sensitive spot while his stinging slaps land on her tender skin sends an indescribable wave of pleasure through her body. Moaning and twisting her hips she softly complains ,“Husband…Rui…Ahhh…Ennn…Hurts..”

 Out of control Rui couldn’t stop if he wanted to because her wet pussy clamping around his throbbing c*ck is too stimulating. The sound of her bewitching voice combined with her honey flowing down his rock hard erection makes him want to drown in this ecstasy. “Baby…Ummm…your greedy little pussy won’t let me go.”

He leans down and kisses her back while continuing his fierce thrusts. He would pull out then slam back inside like an insatiable beast. She fills the void inside of him and is the only light in his dark world. Rui wants to crush LiMei into his bones so she can never run away from him. He manipulates the slender body under him while she delirious calls his name over and over, “Rui.. Rui..Ahhh…too deep…Mmmmm…soooo big. Ruiiii…Don’t…Ahhhh.

 Rui’s breathing is ragged and his heartbeat erratic as he gazes at the delicate woman under him calling his name. He reaches around kneading her breasts and LiMei’s body sways from his rapid thrusting. He has a slight smile as she tilts her head and he can see drool slipping down her chin. “Little slut…you know you don’t want me to stop. I’m going to fuck you harder to feed your hungry little pussy.”

 Feeling he is about to explode he wraps his large hands around her willow thin waist and wildly thrusts again and again. He leans back and groans in ecstasy while releasing his essence deep inside of LiMei. “Urghh..Hmmm….Sooo good…” Baby, your sweet little pussy is mine…mine alone. I will never let you go.

  LiMei has lost consciousness and Rui turns her to the side embracing her body limp tightly in his arms. “Baby, I love you so much.” Don’t ever say the word divorce again or I don’t know what I would do.


I Will Get Revenge

Su Wanqing and Liu Mo reluctantly lead Rui up the mountain as the storm rages. Yang Chenxi is next to Rui and warns, “”If it keeps storming there is danger of a landslide.”

“That is why we need to hurry.”

He grabs Su Wanqing’s arm with an iron grip, “How much further to the cave?”

 She winces from the pain and her eyes water, “Qiao Rui! This is insane! If they are in the cave they are safe! We should have waited until the morning.”

 “Answer my question!”

 “Should be around the next bend but that is the most treacherous part of the climb. I can barely see two steps ahead.”

  “Keep moving.”

  As they hike further up the mountain Su Wanqing slips and Liu Mo pulls her into his arms. “Qiao Rui, you are going too far. It isn’t WanWan’s fault your wife foolishly followed the little brat!”

 Rui grits his teeth, “I said keep moving.”

 In the cave LiMei can’t keep her eyes open and drifts off to sleep while hugging Baobei. Wang Kai covers them with another blanket then stokes the fire.

Sitting cross legged next to the fire he rubs his hands together gathering his internal energy. The soft little girl is Qiao Rui’s woman?…Hard to believe… but knowing that lunatic, the thunderstorm won’t stop him from looking for her if she is his wife. There is no way he is involved with Su Wanqing as she thinks…he hates her.

  I can’t afford to be discovered by him but in my condition I won’t make it back to the boat. I need to find the herbs to combat the poison that is flaring up. He puts on his coat and knit cap then heads out of the cave.

   Meanwhile, Rui and the others are digging through a small landslide blocking the last section of the path to where the cave is located. Covered in mud Su Wanqing glares at Rui but remains silent. Besides Master Wong he is the only man that she fears in this world.

Her pitiful appearances pulls on Liu Mo’s heartstrings. He places his large hands on her quivering shoulders and tenderly says. “WanWan sit on the boulder there, you don’t need to dig.”

  Rui sneers as he tosses a large rock and it lands by Su Wanqing’s feet splashing more mud on her, splattering across her face. Liu Mo angrily stretches out his arm to push him but Rui moves so Liu Mo falls forward. Yang Chenxi intervenes, “Liu Mo, don’t be played by that woman. She is not the innocent victim she appears to be.”

  “Yang Chenxi, WanWan is innocent. We came to get the medicinal plant Master Wong wanted. We never saw those two. There is no reason for Qiao Rui to bully her because he can’t control his own wife!”

  Rui’s eyes are filled with a murderous glint as he grabs him by the neck, “You are a brainless fool if you think that poisonous bitch didn’t have her hand in this.” He lets him go, “Both of you keep digging if you don’t want me to kill you right now.”

  Liu Mo and Su Wanqing can tell by Rui’s terrifying aura it is not an idle threat and they unwillingly resume clearing the path. When they finish they drudge up the final stretch to where Baobei’s cave is located. Once it is in sight Rui rushes up to the cave entrance.

 His heart is pounding when he sees the fire and anxiously scans the interior. When his eyes land on the makeshift bed he quickly strides over. Relieved LiMei appears unharmed he reaches to touch her cheek then retracts his dirty hand. He wants to take LiMei into his arms but he is muddy and she is comfortably sleeping. 

   Not far away Yang Chenxi notices Jack laying in the basket with his wing bandaged. He exclaims, “What the hell!”

  Su Wanqing apprehensively clutches her jacket, I can’t believe that damn bird didn’t die… she moves over to the side of the cave pulling Liu Mo along. Once they are shrouded in darkness she softly whispers, “Brother Mo, I didn’t lie to you that hawk tormented my snakes and killed my favorite. I was so mad when I saw the hateful bird I wanted it dead…I didn’t consider the fact it belonged to Yang Chenxi.”

  He smoothes her hair and his voice is full of tenderness, “I know. Don’t worry WanWan, you are my woman now, I will protect you. No one knows how the bird was injured.” 

 Liu Mo takes a handkerchief from his pocket then wipes her mud stained face, “And I will make Qiao Rui pay for the way he treated you.”

Su Wanqing wraps her arms around his waist and rests her head on his sturdy chest. He can’t see the malicious smile on her face as she coquettishly responds, “Brother Mo…I’m so happy I met you.”

  His face is beaming as he kisses the top of her head. I will make that bastard pay for hurting my sweet WanWan. 

  Rui walks over to them, “Leave.”

  Liu Mo is about to protest when Su Wanqing smiles, “Fine.” She looks up at Liu Mo, “Let’s go.”

  When they leave she holds his hand and says, “Brother Mo, there is another cave past the stream. I don’t want to stay with them anyway.” I can plan my revenge on that bitch Feng LiMei. Now that I have you for a scapegoat. It is all her fault! I will ruin her face and cripple her! Then Qiao Rui will come back to me!

  Rui puts some wood on the fire then he sees a bucket of water on a small table and a towel. He removes the filthy coat he is wearing then washes his face and hands. Afterwards he walks over to Yang Chenxi, “What happened to Jack?”

  “He has a broken wing and is unconscious.”

  Rui sits by the fire with Yang Chenxi,  “Well, it looks like LiMei did a good job bandaging him. He might have sustained a concussion when he fell.”

  “It seems suspicious, did you see the look on that kid Liu Mo’s face when I mentioned Jack at the cabin?”

  “Unfortunately for him he is under the snake woman’s spell. She drugged him and once a man has sex with her if his yang isn’t strong enough becomes bewitched. Su Wanqing is using him and he has no clue how vicious she can be. “

  When his clothes are dry he walks over to the bed where LiMei and Baobei are asleep. He lifts up Baobei and carries him to the other bed. Afterwards, he slides under the covers and lays next to LiMei. He wraps his arm around her thin waist and pulls her close to him. Inhaling her naturally sweet fragrance his anxiety dissipates. Baby, why do you make me worry? 

   Rui lifts her chin and tenderly kisses LiMei, licking and sucking her lips. He wants to possess her body but restrains himself because Yang Chenxi is not far away. He buries his head in her neck and tightens his embrace.  Slowly the exhaustion from the arduous climb and debilitating anxiety he experienced drains him completely and he falls asleep.

 Worried about the bird, Yang Chenxi is unable to sleep so at sunrise he decides to take Jake to the Compound. 

    As he is washing his face Baobei wakes up and  stretches his short chubby arms. He rubs his eyes, “Uncle Chenxi! When did you get here.”

  “Last night. Baobei, what happened to Jack?”

  “I don’t know. We were hiking up the mountain when Jack fell from the sky.”

  Baobei hops out of the bed, “Is Jack awake?”

  “No. I am going to take him to your grandfather. You be good. Don’t wake up Qiao Rui and Feng LiMei. You can go back with them.”

  Baobei shakes his head, “No…no..the mean guy will be mad because I brought Sister LiMei to my cave. I will go with you.”

Yang Chenxi glances at Rui and LiMei, the brat might be right. “Okay. Is there a pen and paper.”

“Yeah. Well..I have pencils.” He scurries over to a shelf and takes down a wooden box. He picks out a blue pencil then rips a sheet of paper from his drawing pad.

   Baobei anxiously puts on his shoes and jacket. Blinking his round eyes he stammers,  “Hurry..hurry…make it short.. he might wake up.”


He leaves a note then picks up the basket with Jack inside and puts it on his back. He lifts Baobei into his arms then teases, “You know you still have to answer to your grandfather.”

 Baobei wiggles in his arms and pushes his chest, “Let me down I will go back with them.”

  Yang Chenxi laughs and flicks his forehead, “Too late.”

Take Me With You Part 1

    Liu Mo is on top of Sun Wanqing groaning in ecstasy, completely out of his mind from the effect of the aphrodisiac. He is wildly thrusting into her when Rui kicks open the door of the cabin. Rui’s eyes are filled with rolling flames as he storms over to the bed.

Su Wanqing pushes Liu Mo off of her naked body as Rui growls, “Bitch! Where is LiMei?”  He grabs her by the hair and yanks her off the bed. Liu Mo snaps out of his daze and attempts to intervene by stepping between them and gripping Rui’s arm.. “Let her go!”  

   Rui turns the palm of his other hand and Liu Mo flies across the room from the force of the strike. Liu Mo slumps to the floor with blood coming from his mouth, unable to breath, he can only helplessly watch as Rui puts his hand on Su Wanqing’s throat.

 With his handsome face contorted in anger Rui repeats, “If you don’t want to die tell me where my wife is!”

   Su Wanqing has a faint smile, “I don’t know where Feng LiMei is but if you kill me you will have no clue as to where to look.”

  “Tell me.”

 Su Wanqing meets his eyes, “Take your hand off my neck first.”

  Rui removes his hand, “Speak.”

  “Can I put my dress on first?”

  “No. You are wasting time.”

  “There is a cave. I’m not quite sure where, further up the mountain.”

   Lui Mo staggers over holding her dress, “Qiao Rui! Leave WanWan alone! She has nothing to do with your wife, we came to get herbs for Master. We haven’t seen her.”

  Rui smirks as he gazes at the boy’s hazy eyes. “She drugged you and you still defend the slut? Fool.”

  Liu Mo has a puzzled expression and gazes at Su Wanqing. She doesn’t deny and he stammers, “WanWan?”

   Rui continues, “Get dressed. You are going to lead the way.”

  Yang Chenxi says, “Did you see Jack? He didn’t return to the compound. The bird knew I was setting off today. It isn’t like him to disappear.”

  Su Wanqing nervously glances at Liu Mo, “No.”

 Rui notices her eyes flash with fear and twists her arm, “You must have seen the black hawk. What aren’t you telling us?”

 She winces in pain, “Brother Rui I didn’t see Jack!”

  Liu Mo anxiously gulps down his saliva, the black hawk I killed… He quickly sobers up and pulls on his pants, “Let her go.I will help you find them.”

  “You don’t know this mountain like she does.” He loosens his hand on her arm. “Bitch, hurry up and put on shoes so we can leave.”

  “In this storm the path will be treacherous. It is better to wait until morning.”

  “I’m not waiting. There is no guarantee they made it to the brat’s cave.” 

   In the cave Baobei is fast asleep laying in LiMei’s arms. Wong Kai puts more wood on the fire then walks over to them. He wants to know more about LiMei so he can judge what he should do. The poison has weakened him considerably and he needs to recuperate.“Who did you come to the Island with?” He wants to know who will come looking for her. “ Who is your husband?” 

  LiMei is half asleep, “I doubt you would know him.”

 “I might.”

 “Qiao Rui.”

 Wong Kai stops in his tracks, “Repeat that.”

 “My husband is Qiao Rui, do you know him?”

  “…”  I not only know him, I want to kill the bastard!

Wong Kai responds, “Familiar.”

 LiMei lays Baobei on the bed and covers him with a blanket, “You don’t look well. When the rain stops you should come with us down the mountain.”

“I will be leaving soon.” I am not in any shape to deal with Qiao Rui.

“You can’t go out in this rain.”

 “Why did you and Qiao Rui come to the Island?”

  “Rui wanted to see Master Wong.”  LiMei suddenly thinks about Rui and Su Wanqing and her face pales. Maybe I should leave the Island if Rui wants to be with that woman I can’t bear to watch. 

  Wong Kai notices LiMei’s change in expression, “Is something wrong?”

 “ No. Well, do you know Su Wanqing?”

 His eyes narrow suspiciously, “Why?”

 LiMei hesitates then wrinkles her brows together, “Did Rui and she..well..did they have a relationship?”

 He has a mischievous smile looking at her worried expression. I should at least sow some seeds of discord. That is the least I could do for my old enemy.

 “I don’t think it is my place to say.”

 LiMei takes that answer as a yes they did. She impulsively asks, “Can you take me with you when you leave?”


 “I will be honest with you. I don’t want to be an obstacle for Rui to be with Su Wanqing. I think by your evasive answer you know they did.” Tears form in her eyes and silently begin to fall.  “And…well Baobei saw them kissing. I can’t face him. It hurts too much to think of Rui with another woman.”

 Seeing her upset Wong Kai regrets teasing LiMei, “I think you should talk to your husband. It might be a misunderstanding. Get some sleep.”

 LiMei is exhausted and lays down next to Baobei. “I am serious, I want to leave.”

  He shakes his head as he walks to the entrance of the cave and looks out at the rain still falling. How in the world did that cold bastard marry such an innocent and naive girl ? Listening to Baobei’s nonsense… I doubt he was kissing Su Wanqing, he hates that woman to his very core. But it would be sweet revenge to steal his wife. 

There Is A Cabin

  When Rui reaches the bottom of the mountain he quickly dismounts. The lack of visibility and heavy rain doesn’t deter him, he slaps Diablo on his hindquarters, “Go back”, and starts to climb.

   Yang Chenxi arrives a few minutes later to see Diablo but no Rui. Dammit! There is no way in this weather he will be able to find those two idiots!

  Diablo nervously neighs and stomps his front hoof as though he is chastising his Master for being a lovestruck fool. 

Yang Chenxi hops off the red chestnut horse, “Both of you return.”

   The horses stand still and Yang Chenxi shakes his head, “Go. There is nothing you can do.” He swats Blaze then starts up the mountain. 

   Rui pulls down his cap and tightens the coat around him. LiMei, I pray to Buddha you found a place to get out of this rain. Why wouldn’t you come and tell me you were going to the mountain? I would have forbidden you to go. During this season the weather can change quickly. 

  Yang Chenxi is breathing heavily when he catches up with Rui. “Brother, the kid knows this mountain and Jack is with them. He will protect the little chick and the brat.” 

   Rui grits his teeth and ignores him as he continues his ascent up the slippery mountain trail. The path is muddy, littered with broken branches and hard to navigate in the darkness. Rui’s heart is racing thinking about LiMei. He finally breaks the silence, “Does that poisonous bitch have a place on the mountain? If she frequently harvests the herbs and collects snakes she must have, Su Wanqing isn’t stupid, these thunderstorms can’t be predicted. The Island’s torrential rain comes out of nowhere.”

   Yang Chenxi scratches his beard, “Come to think of it a few years ago she had the other disciples help her build a small cabin, but I don’t know where it is located.”

   Rui’s voice reveals a glimmer of hope “Would the kid know? He accompanied her often, right?”

   “He would.” Yang Chenxi’s eyes light up, “The kid is smart. If it started to rain as they were climbing he would go there.”

   In the small cabin Su Wanqing is undressing behind a screen while Liu Mo starts a fire. As he puts water on to boil he glances over and his throat rolls at the tempting sight. Su Wanqing’s naked silhouette can be seen through the flimsy material.

   She can feel his scorching hot gaze and  seductively touches her breasts and arches her back while drying her wet body. Today is a good day, I got rid of that pesky bird Jack and the little nuisance, as a bonus Brother Rui’s little wife. I should reward the little puppy with a taste.

   Su Wanqing spreads her legs apart and rubs her sensitive spot with the towel as she faintly moans. Lui Mo can barely control the urge to run over and grab her into his arms. He stokes the fire as his mind is filled with lustful thoughts.

  Su Wanqing calls to him in a soft voice as she pulls on her dress. “Brother Mo, could you help me?” She walks out from behind the screen with a lavender floral dress hanging off her shoulders and her cleavage exposed. “My zipper is stuck.”

   Lui Mo hesitates by the fireplace and she teases, “It is very uncomfortable like this. Please.”

   He slowly walks over and she turns her back to him then lifts her long damp hair. He lowers his head inhaling the intoxicating scent of gardenias floating from her body. Gulping down his saliva, his trembling hands quickly pull up the zipper. 

   Disappointed Liu Mo didn’t take the bait, she turns and faces him. She wrinkles her forehead as she coquettishly pouts her lips “Brother Mo, you scratched me with the zipper.”

   “Sister WanWan, I’m sorry…” He blushes, “I was too rough… I..I have never zipped a woman’s dress before.”

   She looks at him with watery eyes and flutters her eyelashes, “I know you didn’t mean to but I will need to bother you to apply ointment.” 

   He watches her sway her hips over to a small cupboard and he clenches his fists at his side admonishing himself, You stupid idiot! You wanted to kiss her neck and didn’t paying attention! Now you hurt WanWan!

  Su Wanqing takes a small porcelain bottle from a shelf and then palms a few leaves she picked last time on the mountain. “I will make tea first. I’m very cold and thirsty.”

 Concerned about injuring her with his negligence he worriedly asks, “Shouldn’t I apply the ointment first?”

  “The water is ready for the tea.It will be fine.’

   She takes the hot water from the small cooking space in the fireplace and says, “Bring two cups from the shelf over there.”

   While he is getting the cups she puts the crushed leaves into the tea .Her lips turn up into a wicked smile. The shy puppy will be fun to train.

  Liu Mo brings the cups to a small wooden table and she leans over as she pours the tea. He uses all his internal energy to suppress his growing desire as her ample breasts are slightly displayed.

  She smiles, “Sit. This tea is very delicious.” She wraps her hands around the steaming cup, “ I pick the leaves in the Spring and this is the first time I have made it.”

   He lifts the cup to his lips and a sweet aroma fills his nose. He doesn’t particularly like sweet tea but since she poured him a cup he tastes it. He feels a warmth flow through his blood and replies, “ Very good.”

   She takes a small sip of the tea and her body begins to heat up, she doesn’t want to lose control only heighten her pleasure. Su Wanqing gazes over the teacup to see his reaction. When she meets his eyes she can tell the aphrodisiac is beginning to work. His pupils are dilated and small flames can be seen in their depths.

   “Can you apply the ointment now? The pain is worsening.”


   “You will need to unzip me.” She girlishly giggles. “You are too strong…Slowly…okay?”

   Liu Mo has an intense uncontrollable desire building inside as he stares into her bewitching eyes. WanWan thinks I am strong?

His face is beet red as he unzips her dress. She hands him the porcelain bottle. After putting the creamy white ointment on his fingertip he gently runs his finger across a small scratch. Touching her jadelike soft skin he can’t resist lingering. Tracing his finger along her skin over and over as though in a trance his tense body stiffens. WanWan’s skin is as soft and tender as I imagined. Fuck! This is bad!

He suddenly jumps back, “I am going to..going to..go outside for a minute.”

   Su Wanqing grabs his hand with both of hers and her voice is tinged with worry, “It’s storming. You can’t go out. Brother Mo, what’s wrong?” She touches his forehead,  Do you have a fever?”

  Looking into her beautiful brown eyes tinged with worry, Liu Mo hates himself for his evil thoughts. She treats me like a good brother and all I want to do is kiss every part of her luscious body and fuck her to death! “WanWan..I’m not feeling well. I need to cool off.”

  “Come lay on the bed. Let me examine you.”

  He shakes his head, “”

  She pulls Liu Mo by the hand to a small bed, “Don’t be silly. You are talking nonsense. Your face is flushed red and you are burning up.”

  He reluctantly lays on the bed and closes his eyes trying to dispel the heat within him. Maybe I do have a fever. Why else would I be burning up and my mind completely consumed with these lewd thoughts about Sister WanWan. Even when I watched her bathe I never considered what I am thinking now.

  Su Wanqing licks her lips staring at the boyishly good looking man laying on the bed with his eyes closed. You are too cute Liu Mo…you are the first man I actually wanted since Brother Rui. Until I can get him in my bed you will do. The huge bulge in your pants says you will do quite nicely.

  She leans down and her hot breath sprays on his face, his eyes layered in lust open. Her breasts are pressing on his chest and her lips are dangerously close to him. He innocently stutters, “WanWan, please don’t be so close. I…I”

  Su Wanqing puts her finger on his lips, “Brother Mo, kiss me.”

  He widens his eyes in disbelief thinking the fever made him delirious, this must be a dream..a sweet dream. Staring at the beautiful woman’s red full lips he gives into desire. He frantically flips her over and begins awkwardly kissing. She inwardly sighs, I at least thought he had kissed a woman before. Su Wanqing wraps her arms around his neck and takes control, sucking and biting his lips.

   Wantonly teasing, she stimulates the virgin boy, making him go crazy with desire. Having lost all sense of rationality, he rips off her dress and begins sucking on her large breasts. Never having experienced the taste of a woman and under the influence of the drug his body is on fire Burying his head between the soft mounds he thinks this is the best dream he has ever had.  Su Wanqing, though is not satisfied and takes his large hand placing it between her legs.Guiding his long slender finger inside of her she moans, “Ah..Brother Mo…deeper.” 

   While they are in the throes of passion Rui and Yang Chenxi are getting closer to the cabin. Yang Chenxi recalled that one of the disciples said Su Wanqing wanted the cabin built close to a stream. 

    Yang Chenxi wipes his face with a handkerchief then opens a bottle of water.  “Rui, I think if we go to the left there is a stream about half a kilometer away. The only other stream I know of  is by the top of the mountain.” He lazily drinks the water, “ I doubt any of the disciples would agree to that location. It had to be hard enough carrying all the supplies this far.”

  “You are wasting time, let’s go.”

  “…”  I haven’t had a sip of water in three hours, I’m thirsty. 


Baobei’s Cave

    While Rui anxiously pushes Diablo to go faster LiMei and Baobei are eating the cold chicken.

After Baobei devours the last piece of meat on the plump drumstick in his fleshy hand he moves closer to Jack. Staring at the unconscious black hawk with a worried expression he asks, “Sister LiMei, when will Jack wake up?”

    LiMei wants to comfort Baobei but doesn’t know what will happen.  When Jack fell he hit branches on his way down so the impact on the ground was lessened but he sustained other injuries.  “It is hard to say.  I checked Jack, his breathing was more stable and his heartbeat was steady. When he does wakes up we can feed him the Dragon Eye fruit to help him recover.” 

      As the thunderstorm storm rages, bursts of thunder and the crackle of lightning echo in the cave. Torrential rain pounds the ground outside and water begins to pool at the entrance. The cold wind swirls at the entrance threatening to extinguish the fire she painstakingly lit.

   LiMei pushes up the sleeve of the oversized black sweater and stokes the fire with a thin branch. She takes another piece of the firewood and puts it on the fire. If the fire goes out we will be in trouble, the temperature in the cave has been steadily dropping.

   Baobei watches LiMei , “Do you go camping with that man? I didn’t think you would be able to start a fire.”

  LiMei thinks for a minute, it seemed to come naturally when she found a knife in the wooden chest. First, she made a v shaped hole in a piece of wood then rolled a spindle to create an ember that fell on a piece of bark she placed there. “Maybe.”


  She rubs his head and laughs when she notices his puzzled expression, “Well, I must have. Come sit on my lap, you are shivering.”

  Suddenly there is a rustling at the front of the cave that sounds like an animal might be seeking refuge from the storm. LiMei nervously puts her finger to her mouth, “Shh.” Lowering her head she whispers in his ear, “Go to the back of the cave and hide under a blanket.” He doesn’t budge and she says, “Go.”

   He moves his chubby legs as fast as he can into the darkness. As he passes by the bed he grabs a blanket then drags it behind him. When Baobei reaches the rear of the cave he picks up a few stones then curls into a ball under the cover.

He peeks out a corner of the blanket to see what is going on in the front of the cave. He grips one of the stones in his hand , if Sister needs me I can make a sneak attack from here. I wish I had brought my sword!

    LiMei picks up the knife by the fire and steps into the shadows thinking possibly a wolf is approaching. She takes a deep breath trying to stabilize her turbulent emotions. She is very afraid, her hand clutching the knife is trembling. I need to be strong to protect the little guy. She steadies her hand, you can do it LiMei!

    Wong Kai sees the fire inside the cave and has a dagger ready to confront the intruder. He cautiously enters and can hear breathing in the shadows. Swiftly locating LiMei’s position in a flash has his hand on her neck pressing her delicate body against the cold stone. He growls in a low and threatening tone that sends shivers down LiMei’s spine. “Who sent you? Speak!”

   LiMei bumped her back on a protruding rock from his forceful push. She winces in pain and can’t catch her breath let alone speak.

Baobei recognizes Wong Kai’s voice and crawls out from his hiding place. He runs towards the sound of the familiar man, pulling on his muddy wet pant leg he pleads, “ Old Hermit! Don’t hurt Sister LiMei! She is my friend!”

   Wong Kai lets go of LiMei’s throat.

LiMei coughs, “Keke..Keke..Old Hermit?”

   He apologizes, “Ahh…sorry…the kid is never here at night and…” I thought you were sent to eliminate me. Of course if I hadn’t been up for three days straight I wouldn’t have jumped to conclusions. No assassin would light up the cave and have a roaring fire going.

  They step into the light and LiMei stutters looking at the incredibly handsome man that can’t be older than thirty. She points her slender finger at him and has an incredulous expression, ‘YOU..YOU..are Old Hermit?”

  The tall  handsome man has a deep and melodious laugh, “Haha..well when I first met the kid I had been burning some papers. The wind suddenly shifted so I was covered in ash and the little guy said, “Old man, what are you doing by my cave?”

   “So… I don’t know why..haha..” He rubs his chin, “ I told him my name is Old Hermit.” I didn’t want to kill the runt and I thought if he mentioned me they would think I was just some harmless old guy.

  Baobei gazes up at Wong Kai with a quizzical look, “It isn’t?”


  LiMei shivers, “Let’s go by the fire. It is too cold right here.”

  Wong Kai follows them, wary of LiMei he asks, “Why are you here?” 

  Baobei holds LiMei’s hand, “I wanted to show Sister LiMei my cave but I didn’t think it would thunderstorm.”

  Wong Kai stares at LiMei wearing his clothes and she notices he doesn’t look happy.

  LiMei blushes, “I’m sorry I had to borrow your clothes. My clothes were soaking wet.”

  Baobei puts his hands on his hips, “Old Hermit, don’t be stingy. I will bring you a new set next time I come.”

  “Okay, don’t call me Old Hermit. You can call me..hmm…” I am too fucking tired to make up a name. “Just keep it, Old Hermit.” He changes the subject. “Does your grandfather know you are here?” I don’t need the old fart sending someone to look for you. I planned on finding some Myrahia to get rid of the poison then sleeping here for a few days. Once I recover I have a job in Shanghai. 

  Baobei’s big round eyes widen, he blinks a few times, “Ummm…maybe now.”

    “I’m leaving.”

  LiMei sees Wong Kai is soaking wet, his clothes completely drenched from the rain and covered in mud., “It is too miserable out there and it doesn’t appear the thunderstorm will be ending anytime soon. You will catch your death of cold if you leave.”

  He stares at LiMei holding Baobei on her lap debating if he should stay. It took all of his internal energy to make it up the back of the mountain. He inwardly sighs, I will face death if my father finds me here. He made it clear when he disowned me not to show my face in front of him ever again if I wanted to live. But this Island is too full of rare medicinal plants and I like spending time with my little nephew. The incident wasn’t even my fault at the time but the stubborn old goat was too angry to listen to my explanation.

  “Well, I will stay until the storm lets up.”

  “Old Hermit, why were you gone for so long?”

  “I was working.”

  “Did you assassinate anyone?”


  Wong Kai laughs as he waves his hand, “Miss, don’t listen to the kid. I told those fantastic stories cause Baobei likes to hear them.”

  LiMei chuckles, “Baobei said he missed you because you told the best stories. You should change out of your wet clothes. I will put another piece of wood on the fire.”

  He hurriedly grabs the piece of wood, “I can do it.” Looking at LiMei’s tender looking small hands he is curious,The little girl looks rather delicate, how did she start the fire? Who is she? A new disciple? 

  LiMei takes the piece of wood, “Seriously, go change!”

  “I will sit by the fire the clothes will dry.”

  “We already have an injured bird and frankly, you don’t look well.” She teases, “I’m a married woman.”  LiMei’s face pales thinking about Rui but then she smiles brightly, “I promise I won’t look.”

  Baobei nods his head, “Sister LiMei won’t peek…I changed earlier and she didn’t look.”


  Wong Kai walks to the wooden chest and takes out a towel, jeans and a black sweater. He lazily stretches his long legs towards the back of the cave. While he is changing he is curious about LiMei’s identity. She is married? Who is her husband? Not one of the disciples, they are all single dogs. A visitor to the Island…the man must be someone important.  Well that might work out …If there is a problem I can take the little woman with me to escape.

    Baobei comfortably snuggles in LiMei’s embrace while sitting by the flickering fire. After the treacherous climb up the mountain, the exhausted little boy’s eyelashes are fluttering as he tries to stay awake. 

LiMei is also having trouble keeping her eyes open but is wary of Wong Kai. Old Hermit..what a ridiculous name ..he is obviously not old… or a hermit. .. he said he made up the stories he told  Baobei but he exudes an extremely dangerous aura. The man easily took the knife from my hand and didn’t hesitate to ruthlessly press me against the stone wall. The black dagger at my throat was invisible in the dark, very much like an assassin’s weapon. I felt a bone chilling coldness as he demanded to know my identity. If Baobei hadn’t called out in time I seriously think would have killed me without blinking.

     She contemplates the situation. No..I don’t trust the man at all..When Old Hermit smiled at Baobei his eyes were gentle but when he was talking to me the smile didn’t reach his cold dark eyes.  He stared at me as though he was calculating if I was worth keeping alive.

    LiMei viligantly watches Wong Kai walk over to a black backpack. He can feel her eyes boring a hole in his back and chuckles, the little woman is afraid of me…He has the urge to tease LiMei. Turning around he steps toward LiMei and extends his fist. She stiffens and wraps her thin arms around the sleeping little boy in her lap in a protective gesture. Wong Kai opens his hand and in his palm are bright red berries, “These are good to ward off the cold.”

   When she doesn’t take the berries he has a devilish grin, “The berries aren’t poisonous.” He pops a few into his mouth. Little Missy…If I wanted to kill you…you would already be dead.

  She hesitantly takes a few of the bright red berries. “Old Hermit…or whatever your name is…I don’t care. When Baobei and I go back tomorrow I won’t mention I saw you. Let’s get along until then.” 

    LiMei puts the small red berries in her mouth, as she chews her face scrunches up from the assault on her taste bitter..bitter..bitter.  LiMei looks at Wong Kai with watery eyes, after she swallows she purses her lips. “Ahhh.. the taste terrible!” 

    He hands her a small purple leaf, “Chew this. It will get the bitter taste out of your mouth.”

   She looks up at him with an aggrieved expression, “I don’t want.” The amused expression on his face is annoying…he could have warned me!

   He eats a piece of leaf and smirks, “Suit yourself, but I will warn you the bitter taste won’t go away by itself. Your tongue might swell up too.”

  “I’m fine.”

  “Really? You don’t look fine.”

  When she feels her tongue beginning to swell, she grabs a leaf and stuffs it into her mouth. The cooling sweet sensation makes her  beautiful green eyes bend in a crescent shape. She takes another leaf from him, “So sweet…like a piece of toffee.

   Baobei hears the word sweet and drowsily opens his eyes, “Old Hermit, you brought me toffee?”


Race To The Mountain

   Su Wanqing has a slight smile satsified she will finally be rid of the irksome bird. She watches Jack plummeting through the trees down to the ground then hugs Liu Mo. “You are so strong! Now that nasty black hawk won’t feed on my precious snakes anymore!” He won’t fly back to alert Master that the little nuisance and the slut are stuck in the mountains. There is no way they can return during this thunderstorm. I can only hope they meet a calamity or freeze to death. The temperature drops drastically at night. I saw the little brat earlier and he was wearing shorts and a cotton short sleeved shirt. I doubt the stupid girl was prepared either. 

   Liu Mo only came to train on the island recently while Jack was with Yang Chenxi on a mission. He has no idea the black hawk he hit with the stones has been meticulously cultivated and raised by Wong Hu.

Looking down at the rain soaked woman he gently pats her back. “We need to find shelter.” While tightening his coat around Su Wanqing he inadvertently touches her large firm breasts with the palm of his hand and his Adam’s apple rolls. 

   Su Wanqing snuggles into his embrace and rubs her body on his lower abdomen. He can feel  Little Mo stiffen from her seductive body pressing onto him. She pouts her full red lips and her eyes are watery stirring his protective instinct. “I’m cold Brother Mo.”

   He hugs her tighter, “Sister QingQing I can make a fire when we find a dry place. We should hurry.” He suddenly picks her up into his embrace and runs up the mountain. She buries her head in his coat with her cheek resting on his chest. She can hear his erratic heartbeat and thinks she will have fun later giving this handsome boy his first taste of a woman.

Su Wanqing puts her hand on his sturdy chest and his body trembles from her soft touch. Liu Mo is very strong…this terrain is treacherous and he is flying up the mountain with ease. The puppy is so sensitive…just touching him like this I can feel his huge erection poking my butt. She squirms a little in his arms rubbing him with her round bottom.

Liu Mo’s voice sounds raspy, “QingQing, be good. Don’t move around.” I don’t know if I can restrain myself if she keeps rubbing my c*ck with her ass. He continues his ascent up the mountain as Su QingQing nestles in his arms.

    Halfway up the mountain Baobei is having trouble navigating the narrow path. The rain makes it difficult to see two steps ahead and he is nervous leading the way along the steep cliff. The thunderstorm is getting worse and the sky is darkening from the large clusters of storm clouds. The path is muddy and very slippery. He trips on a rock and loses his balance then quickly bounces up, steadying himself. He pats his chest with his small hand, Oh wow! That was a close call!

  Baobei adjusts his breathing and points up ahead not realizing his finger is shaking. I wish I had checked the weather this morning and not brought Sister LiMei to the Mountain. He tries to sound calm, “As soon as we turn there the land is flat. My cave is not far from there.”

  “Okay.”  She knows the little fat man is afraid but is doing his best to act like an adult, so she doesn’t tease him.

  Baobei’s chubby cheeks are red from the chilly wind so he thinks LiMei doesn’t notice him blushing in embarrassment. He is relieved, maybe Sister LiMei didn’t see me…I really almost fell! I have never been here in the dark and it’s storming so bad. I can’t act afraid though. It will be fine when we reach my cave.

    LiMei is worried about Jack; he is still unconscious and from what she could see his wing is very badly broken.

    They continue around the narrow path and Baobei perks up when they reach the plateau. “Not much farther.”

    When they reach the cave he excitedly opens his backpack. He takes out a Night Pearl  illuminating the interior of the cave. LiMei’s eyes widen in shock, “Baobei…how did you?”

     “I bring stuff every time I come and Old Hermit that stays here sometimes made the table. He and I made the sleeping area using some logs.”

   “A hermit?”

   “Well.. Old Hermit is a retired assassin. He used to work for the government. I haven’t seen him in a couple months. I hope Grandfather didn’t find him and have him killed. He doesn’t like strange people on the Island. “


   Baobei takes out several Night Pearls from under the makeshift bed. He puts them around the cave.” I hide these so if Miss Su ever finds the cave she doesn’t steal them. Old Hermit said they are very valuable artifacts. I took them from Grandfather’s storage room.”

  LiMei is awestruck by the simple but comfortable cave. “Baobei, do you have a change of clothes here? You should get out of your wet clothes.” 

  “I do.” He scrunches up his cute face and wrinkles his eyebrows together looking a LiMei, she is drenched. “But what about you?”

  “I see you have firewood. I will make a fire and dry off.”

  Baobei frowns, “Ahh..I have firewood but no matches. Old Hermit would start the fire. Oh! Maybe he left some clothes.”

   He rummages in a wooden box and pulls out a pair of worn out men’s jeans and a black sweater. He smells the clothes, “They are clean. Old Hermit had me bring laundry soap and would wash his clothes in the stream. I really miss him, he told good stories and well…I had fun hanging out with him.” I really hope Grandfather didn’t have the old guy eliminated.

  LiMei carefully puts the basket down. “Baobei, is there an extra blanket we can put down for Jack?  The basket is too wet.”

  “Well, there are only two blankets, can we use this other sweater?”

  “Sure. It should work.”

  LiMei carefully lifts Jack from the basket and lays him on the large woolen dark blue sweater. “I think I can make a splint for Jack’s wing with a couple pieces of kindling. Is there a t- shirt or something I can rip up to use to wrap his wing? I can catch rain water to clean his injuries.”

   Baobei looks on a shelf, “I have some herbs for cuts. I will crush them and make a paste.”

   LiMei’s eyes sparkle, “You said your cave is amazing and it really is!”

   “I wanted to run away and live here with Old Hermit but I knew Grandfather would miss me and send people to find me. I didn’t want him to discover my secret spot or Old Hermit.”

   LiMei laughs, “Why do you always call him Old Hermit, what is his name?”

   “Huh? He said my name is Old Hermit.”


   “I am going to catch rainwater. You change your clothes.”LiMei picks up a bowl from the table and stretches her hand outside the cave.

   Baobei blinks his eyes, staring at LiMei’s back. What if she turns around? He lays on the bed under the blanket and changes his clothes.

   LiMei catches the water then walks over to Jack. She sneezes, I will change after I take care of Jack.

   Baobei takes the herbs off the shelf and crushes them in a bowl with a pestle. He adds some water to make a paste. He waits while LiMei cleans the dried blood off Jack. “Why hasn’t Jack opened his eyes yet?”

  “Well Jack suffered trauma and is in a coma. He is breathing so don’t worry he will wake up. Is that the medicine?”

   Baobei nods his head and LiMei praises him, “I smell Xianghu . How did you know that would disinfect and help heal cuts?”

   “I drew a picture when I found the plant and Grandfather told me.  I get scrapes when I come up the mountain so I picked some. First time I tried putting the leaves on the cut but they would fall off so I made the paste. Sister LiMei, how did you know the plant’s name? Do you study Chinese medicine?”

  LiMei has a slight headache, she doesn’t know why that plant’s name came to mind. I must have heard Rui mention it? “You know Qiao Rui is a doctor. He is familiar with many types of plants and makes medicines and creams. She rubs her legs together, I wish I had some of his healing cream now I am so sore from his plundering last night. I can’t think about him or what he might be doing with that woman.

   Rui is deep in thought, as to who will win the game of Go at the moment he isn’t sure. Both of them are clever strategists and have been unable to outwit the other. He desperately wants to win so Wong Hu will cure LiMei, then he can impregnate her and start a family.

  Yang Chenxi hesitates then knocks on the door of the study.

  Wong Hu flicks his sleeves irritated by the distraction. He commands in a low and threatening tone, “Leave!” He stares at the Go board in disbelief, the brat might win. My next move is crucial.

  Yang Chenxi has a bad feeling. Jack knows they were to set sail and he hasn’t returned from looking for Baobei. He can’t find the little boy and Feng LiMei isn’t in the Plum Blossom Courtyard. It is very possible they went to the mountain…but Jack definitely would fly back and report. The weather on the Island can be unpredictable. Earlier they might have decided to go hiking because it was sunny, not expecting the clouds to move in from the ocean. Now it is lightly raining here but there is a thunderstorm in the distance. I have to inform Master and Qiao Rui.

   He knocks again and Wong Hu says, “Knock again and suffer the consequences!”

   Yang Chenxi swallows his saliva and says, “Master, ahh..its about Baobei and Feng LiMei.”

   Rui hears LiMei’s name and in a flash rushes to the door. When he opens the heavy wooden door he growls, “What about my wife?”

   Yang Chenxi  has no choice but to say, “I think she went to the mountain with Baobei. I sent Jack to look for them earlier but he hasn’t returned.”

  Rui could hear the thunderstorm while they were playing Go but his only concern was that Su Wanqing would come back without the Pycarius Berries. He narrows his eyes and his face darkens, “What did you say?”

  “Well… I knocked on the door of The Plum Blossom House and no one answered. I can’t say for sure but I looked everywhere in the Compound and neither one can be found.”

   “Why do you think they went to the Mountain? Did you check by the Lake?”

   “Well Auntie said Baobei ran into the kitchen in the morning and grabbed some scallion pancakes. The chicken she made was gone from the refrigerator.”

   Rui knocks past him and runs to the Plum Blossom Courtyard. He rushes into the house hoping LiMei is sleeping and didn’t hear the door. When he sees she isn’t in bed his heart is twisted in a knot. He looks for a note she might have left for him but nothing. 

   He quickly changes into a pair of jeans and puts on a baseball cap. Grabbing a razor sharp dagger from the drawer, Rui is extremely upset.  Dammit! What was she thinking following a little kid to the Mountain? Even if it was a clear day the mountain can be the midst of a thunderstorm it can be deadly! Why didn’t she come tell me? I definitely would have forbidden the little girl to go!

Rui picks up the backpack and places the dagger and his medicine bag inside. Taking long strides to the kitchen he grabs a few waters from the refrigerator. He is worried sick about LiMei as he heads towards the door. He fumbles as he ties the laces of the hiking boots because his hands are trembling. Rui stuffs a black windbreaker and LiMei’s pink jacket into the backpack. The little fool didn’t wear hiking boots or take a jacket!

    Yang Chenxi is standing by the gate and when Rui flies out of the Courtyard he says, “I will come too.”

   Grabbing Yang Chenxi by the collar, Rui’s face contorts in anger as he spits out,“Who the hell was supposed to be watching the kid anyway? No one fucking noticed the little fat man disappeared until now?”

  Rui unhands him. He mutters, “Useless.” then runs through the courtyard to the stable. I can ride Diablo to the base of the Mountain. 

   Yang Chenxi saddles Blaze, a red chestnut Arabian horse, as Rui puts a saddle on Diablo. 

    Rui puts on the black windbreaker then flings the backpack over his shoulder. He jumps up onto Diablo then races out of the stable towards the forest through the drizzling rain.

    Yang Chenxi kicks the horse he is riding to catch up with Rui, who is leaning forward in the saddle as Diablo gallops at an unreal pace. I can only hope for everyone on the island’s sake that nothing happened to the crazy bastard’s little wife.

Affectionate Puppy

   It has been awhile since Su Wanqing has spoken to him and Liu Mo keeps sneaking peeks at her face.

   She has calmed down knowing it wasn’t Rui who drew LiMei’s picture. She notices the little wide eyed puppy keeps furtively gazing at her face. Knowing he is apprehensive she decides to tease him. She doesn’t want to destroy the image of a soft and vulnerable woman she skillfully crafted while sitting under the fig tree. Suddenly stopping she coquettishly curls her lips into a pout , “Brother, do I have something on my face?”

   He blushes and stutters “,..”

  Su Wanqing looks at his cute puppy dog appearance, “Then why do you keep staring at me?”

  “Ummm…I wondered if you a bad mood.”

  She takes his hand in both of her small soft hands, making his cheeks turn bright red, “Brother, no one has ever cared if I was in a good mood or a bad mood. To be honest I have never told this to anyone but the only comfort I ever receive isn’t from humans is from my beautiful snakes. I know the other disciples call me Snake Woman but they are my pets and I am not ashamed to say that I love them.”

She decides to feel him out and see if he knows about her strange physique. If his gentleness is only a pretense. “The only reason any of those men approach me is because of the ridiculous rumors about me and Brother Rui. They actually believe I helped him ascend..using..” She blushes making her look like a wronged celestial goddess in his eyes. “I can’t are new here and might not have heard. Let’s say the rumors are very unfair to me.”

   He suddenly takes her into his arms and hugs her tightly. Those hurtful bastards! Conveniently forgetting he also wanted to ascend by having sex and absorbing her yin. “QingQing. Sister, you have been wronged! I will fight any one of those men if they approach you again or spread nasty rumors saying you are a wh…he stops. “ Beasts! They are all selfish beasts!” He smooths her hair affectionately. ”You have me now QingQing, your brother will always comfort you when you are sad or lonely.”

   She unexpectedly feels her heart beating fast from his declaration. It is true no one has ever comforted her or cared about her moods, but she is a naturally cold and indifferent person so it never actually affected her in the least.

Su Wanqing didn’t expect the little cute little puppy she decided to pick up would be so affectionate and caring. She thought he was just like the other men coveting her beauty and hoping she would fuck them. After all, he was always peeping at her through the window.

  Su Wanqing looks at the sky and says, “We need to hurry.”

  Baobei and Li Mei are halfway up the mountain and Baobei looks at the sky, “We heed to hurry.”

  LiMei was tossed all night and into the morning by Rui and is exhausted. Now her legs feel like they are on fire from the strenuous hike. She is surprised Baobei’s stamina is so strong. “Baobei…I know the storm is coming but could we rest for a minute? She chuckles, “I am not in as good of shape as you.”

   He wrinkles his nose wishing he was a man so he could carry LiMei. “Sister, we need to keep moving.” He feels a couple drops of rain, “The section of the mountain up ahead is the most dangerous when it rains. The path is narrow and winding; the edge of the cliff can be very slippery. Once we pass that stretch it will be muddy but not as treacherous because we will be on the inner side of the mountain. We can rest there then continue to my cave.”

  LiMei rubs her scratched and bloody legs, “I understand.”

  Baobei regrets not looking at the weather forecast. “I’m sorry Sister LiMei, I should have been more diligent and checked the weather.” He isn’t allowed access to the internet unless he asks his grandfather for permission. This morning because he wanted to sneak away he didn’t want to alert him.

  She puts her hand lightly on his shoulder, “It is my fault for being so slow. I told you earlier that since it was bright and sunny it looked like the perfect day for a hike.”

   He furrows his brow as the rain starts to fall, “Follow closely behind me.”

  LiMei can’t help but rub his head gazing at his serious expression. “Listen to you.”

  Jack is worried about the two. He thought LiMei would tell the Young Master to turn back a while ago when the sky darkened.He decides he should go and alert Master and Yang Chenxi.

Jack is about to fly down the mountain when a small round stone hits his right wing with a great deal of force, then another stone comes out of nowhere accurately disabling him before he can dodge.

Jack tries unsuccessfully to flap the injured wing suppressing the pain while scanning the area to see what bastard threw the stones. The wing is broken, unable to fly Jack falls through the trees. The pain increases as he hits tree branches because he can’t control his large body to avoid them on his descent. Jack lands on his side behind them with a loud thud.

   LiMei jumps, frightened by the sound. Startled, she swings her body around. “What was..” 

   Both LiMei and Baobei are stunned, Baobei has tears in his eyes when he sees Jack on the ground. Normally they have a love-hate relationship but Baobei truly cares for this annoying bird. “Jack! Jack! You stupid bird what happened?”

  Jack can only blink twice then he closes his beady red eyes slipping into unconsciousness.

   Baobei starts crying, “Jack don’t die! I will give you all of Auntie’s spicy chicken wings! I will share all my cakes with you I promise.”  When he doesn’t move after hearing the tempting offer Baobei shrieks, “Sister..Sister Jack is dead..Wuuhuuuu… Jack is dead!”

    The distraught little boy wants to hug the bird but LiMei stops him.  She can see the big black bird is alive but his breathing is shallow. “Don’t touch him. Jack isn’t dead but he is severely injured. We need to be focused so we can save him.” She hugs Baobei and wipes the tears that are mixed with the rain on his face.

She speaks softly to him in a very soothing voice to calm him down. Since he is so precocious LiMei sometimes forgets he is just a five year old boy. “You can do that, can’t you Baobei. You are so smart we can find a way to save Jack. It looks like his wing is broken and he has injuries from the fall. First, we need to put him in the basket and get him to your cave. Once we are there, you have more Dragon Eye fruit right?

He sniffles and nods.

“Well…we can mash the fruit up and feed it to him and we can find a way to treat his injuries.”

   She takes a tissue from his backpack and the blue and white blanket. LiMei hands Baobei the tissue, ” Sweetie, blow your nose and I will wrap Jack.”

   LiMei doesn’t think it will be easy to lift the big bird but has no choice. She finds a somewhat dry spot under a large tree not far away from where Jack is laying on the ground. She spreads the blanket and sets down the basket. LiMei takes a deep breath and gently lifts Jack.

LiMei has a confused expression, she thought it would be difficult to lift his massive body. She carefully steps over a few branches and places Jack on the blanket. LiMei wraps Jack tightly so if he wakes up he doesn’t try to flap his injured wing. Once she has him securely in the basket she puts it on her back, why is Jack so light? Maybe he is all feathers?

     She doesn’t realize that she is much stronger than an average man because of her constitution that was altered by Xinghe. “Ready Baobei let’s go.”

   Baobei has a gloomy expression looking at the large basket with Jack’s ruffled head with blood stuck on his feathers propped to the side. “Is Jack..heavy?”

   “Not too bad, Jack acts so tough but I think he is all feathers haha.”

   They are walking and Baobei says in a serious tone, “Sister, Jack is very strong. One time he stole a prized black snake of Miss Su’s that must have weighed twenty pounds. She was so mad when she saw him by the stables eating Black Jade. Jack was so full that his belly swollen, he could hardly take off from the ground.

She looked like a witch as she chased Jack with a broom. Miss Su was able to swat him once before he flew to a low hanging branch. Even though she couldn’t reach him she was still swinging the broom and cursing. She didn’t see me because I was behind a bush eating an apple waiting for Ghost to be saddled.”

     LiMei decides to distract Baobei,“Does Miss Su name all her snakes after gems?” She recalls the snake’s name was Diamond that Su Wanqing had around her wristwhen she met her by the Lake.

   “Yeah. Miss Su loves snakes and jewelry…” He furrows his delicate eyebrows while thinking, “..yup.. that is all. I have only seen her happy smile..a real smile not the fake one she always has on her face… when she is playing with her snakes or  sparkly jewelry.”

   LiMei thinks both sound so cold…snakes and gemstones. But.. the knot is her heart tightens, I did see Su Wanqing’s dazzling smile when she was looking at Rui… definitely a genuine smile.
