Chapter 08: Got milk? Libby

 

The crystal mirror wall was a sudden surprised entry way ! Riding on his tumbler cloud, Monkey King was flying around. He had to hold up the cudgel firmly in his hand and turn the golden cudgel like a protection umbrella.

He found out that he comes to a sky-crafting forest of huge mansions; he had to flew lower to find the people on the street that are smaller than the marching ants. The city was lit with lights. When Monkey King rushed to the top of the statue of liberty, then he was thrown from the glass head of the statue of liberty.

 "Look Mom there's a flying monkey!" exclaimed a little boy being led away by his mother.

Monkey king, who was conceived by a fairy stone, was as a stone monkey living underneath the sea. Then he was crowned to be the king because he discovered the best kingdom under the waterfall for the monkeys. All of his kind praised him for his discovery. 

To Monkey King, all the wonders of New York were a city grand and magical to behold. All of the people within this city spoke with devices which were actually small cell phones and digital cameras. Flashes of lights and beams of light, He could see the boats along the water front, he saw people flying the airplane, he saw people driving the cars, and he saw that there were children playing with remote control cars and flashing lights everywhere.

The monkey had traveled distances before, though this Western world so far had been a sight to behold.  Indeed, all of the spectacles, all of the things that he was witnessing came as such a surprise to him. In order to compete with the lifespan of heaven and earth and to achieve immortality, Monkey King left his kingdom and was apprenticed to the Bodhi, thus named Sun-W-Kong meaning "Pondering on emptiness."

After he obtained the powerful golden cudgel, a gift from Dragon King of the East Sea, he immediately claimed himself a saint that now could enjoy equal power with heave. What you do to a stone monkey gained the superpower? The Jade Emperor appointed Monkey King as Stable Assister.

 

 

He used to have too much fun on that only job he had ever got. He stole a date most of panacea pills from the Heaven Pharmacy and ruined Jake Empress's Fairy Peach Party. Lord Pharmaceutist cooked him in the Crucible of the Eight Trigrams, tried to consume him and recover the elixir back.  

 He escaped the torture of the cooking that he endured. His eyes became like fire then, with the golden pupils. The flames of the pharmacy stove dropped onto earth and created the Mountain Flame.

Soon he was invincible until Buda got hold of him. He had to be pressed under the W-Hng Mountain for five hundred years for stirring up trouble in the heavenly palace. Until the Monk Xan-Zhang came to release him from his capture. Budha punished him so he had to serve Xan-Zhang's West Journey to collect the scriptures from the west.

The view that he took upon earth was very different from up there, and now that he had crashed into the city all of his senses seemed threatened. Everything that he once knew seemed bogged down with a new trickery. Perhaps the resolve of the paradox that life was for mortals, perhaps with the truth of human suffering.

Flashing lights everywhere now, Monkey King then saw the Lady Liberty. Such a sky-crafting status. A starry headband, huge robe, holding a huge book under arm, his eyes keen in on the woman. He decided that this was the Buddha of the west. The Book that she was carrying must be the scriptures that Xan-Zhang and the four fellowships that are on their way, must have been looking for all along. His eyes light up.

Monkey King flew to take a close up look, all of the tourist scream in shock then when they see him flying through the air. A child then spotted him.  "Look Mom, I told you I see flying monkeys!" Monkey King flew up to the book, he tried to unbind it with his own hands. So, the Monkey flew higher, he tried to open the cover, but it didn't budge.

There was nothing Monkey King can't do! He flew higher and calculated the distance and staring at the book cover, then he landed to drag the book cover again. Something from the status's torch hit him?! Then he dropped down from the sky, he fell frustrated. He then managed to sly around and he scared the tourists. When he fully landed he saw a woman that came up to him a grin upon her face: "Stop to monkey around!"

This was a human lady looked so resemble, exactly same as the status up high in the sky? SUN-WÙ-KONG compared two faces of the huge status and this lady: "Who are you, are you the BOOK-KEEPER?"  

She was holding the book in her hand and a flash light in her hand. It's a street for the tourists to form some lines to see the Lady Liberty's status. "My name is Libby." She told him.  "I am the library keeper." She said. "Book keeper?!"

Monkey King struggled to get up on the ground, and a little dog came to bite him.  

"Toto stop that!" yelled a lady. The monkey then pointed out his finger and he pushed his negative power, the dog then pauses. Then he pushed the positive power out of his finger and the dog started to come to life again barking.

The dog came back after him. He run, but then he took out his left hand finger. He started to push negative and then positive making the dog stop and go, stop and start to bark again.

The tourists enjoyed the show, they laughed in Wooo, WO! Waa. They said as they watch.  

An old lady was dragging her husband away in a very annoying tone: "Let's get out of here, it's a danger ape!" and her husband shouted from the sidelines: "Hey, you crazy monkey, do my wife!"

The old lady was actually very curvy, only showing aging wrinkles in her face, shining jewelry, slender legs and voluptuous breast, very long eyelashes. SUN-WÙ-KONG pointed to the old lady, then she paused. SUN-WÙ-KONG pointed again, then old lady came back to yelling and annoying again:"Let's go! Let's get out of h..." then SUN-WÙ-KONG paused her and activated her again. "H...ere." she got silent now. The children found this entertaining and they cheered him on. They want him to do it again.

"Do him! Do him!" the kids pointed to each other. Then an old woman rushed   up behind him. "Stop that you!" she said and she hits him with her purse. The Monkey stopped  his antics. She was disguised, although she still was the Leggy Centipede. She had beautiful green eyes and long eye lashes like daggers. Though she had many legs she's managed to conceal them. But he could see through her disguise. He knew it by the way that she acted and moved. Her sharp movements, turned into an easy rhythm.

Then the old lady run after Monkey King. The old man tried to do the same magic to his wife, but it didn't work. She frowned at him. The woman got mad and she rushed up to Monkey King.

she took out the veal and sprayed Monkey king with it.

The water came with a scent to it, like sandalwood and gill fungus. Watched from afar, Libby felt fishy about the fragrance. The old man laughed, and revealed his fang a little bit.

"Monkey King!" all of sudden there was one voice knowing his name and calling him?! SUN-WÙ-KONG rose up his ears; it seemed actually a voice into his ears? And nobody heard except him?!

 "SUN-WÙ-KONG, I have a delivery for you, come to take you son!" The voice went on. SUN-WÙ-KONG did not see Libby's face behind him, Libby seemed to hear the calling too.

Monkey King went off to the dungeons to the left. There in darkness he saw that flying down the magic Iron-Fan , holding a baby in the arm, Dr, Sun was delivering the baby. SUN-WÙ-KONG watched over as this was happening. The baby started to cry. And SUN-WÙ-KONG didn't know what to do.

"Who are you?" Asked Libby.

Monkey King was insulted. "You don't know who I am?! I am Monkey King. Eight hundred years ago I have fought the Jade Emperor. I almost became the emperor of the south heavens." He told her.  "I am SUN-WÙ-KONG. Monkey King."

"Alright, whoever you say you are, but you don't even know why your baby is crying." She said. She was right, Monkey King realized, that with his power he could shook up the heavens and make the weather change but he could not figure out why his baby was crying so.

"Babies cry because they cannot talk." Libby told him. "All you need to do is to figure out what kind of cry is that." "What kind of cry is this?!" SUN-WÙ-KONG repeated in a helpless tone, he had no clue at all, and the crying baby was too soft to hold. "It's a happy cry because your son has found you." Dr.Sun helped and told him.

"Hey, hey, here, here, what's your name...?" SUN-WÙ-KONG pats the baby then the baby opens his eyes, it's exactly the same eyes with Monkey King. Shinning and most bright, the fire eyeballs and the golden pupils!

No Earthling was supposed to have such eyes. Only SUN-WÙ-KONG got this kind of eyes because he stole and ate most of the panacea pills form the Heaven Pharmacy. "Monkey Prince!!" SUN-WÙ-KONG raised up his baby son proudly, at this moment he realized everything come to sense now, what's the meaning of his life? He didn't have to be a Heaven Emperor, he didn't even need to accomplish his West Journey mission anymore, he was proud and satisfied, he got a son!

But the baby started to cry again, and this time his crying had a different tone to it. When he hears his baby crying SUN-WÙ-KONG became helpless again with emotion for his baby. Libby signed, and sighs again. Monkey King raised up his son so high and listen and study his son in his sky high arms, the baby still crying, Monkey King still lift baby up high, listen and observing...

"It's a RELEASE CRY." Libby finally said. "Yes how do you mean?" "From his diaper, he needs to get changed." said Libby.

Monkey King put down the baby and unpacks the diapers, then a water pole springs up to his face. Monkey King shook out the water pisses in his eyes, stared and screaming in a proud voice. "Boy!! It's a boy!" Monkey King showing off his baby son to Libby: "Look! It's a boy!" "Dry him, and feed him!" Libby yelled back.

Monkey King stopped and became helpless again: "Got milk?" he took a glance at Libby's chest and look away.

"No! Find your own milk!"

Monkey King felt disappointed: "What a waste! No milk over such enormous knockers."

"Watch out! Monkey King!" Dr. Sun yelled suddenly.

 Out from nowhere, two Iron-Shoe Soldiers appeared, one attacked Monkey, and another one grabbed Monkey King's baby. The soldiers wore uniforms that were copper colored, they were wearing iron shoes and iron masks, so that no one could identify their faces. They wear helmets. They carried guns that shoot out streams of raw lightning. To intimidate Monkey King, they shoot these guns around.

 The amber colors from the gun laser beams add together, The lights change monkey king's color, and destroyed the tissues of the skin' body' clothes, from surface into deeper parts. Some smoke arise around the wound. It didn't bother Monkey King, Monkey King looked at the arm reach to the baby; he gave one of them a dreadful beating, the soldier stroked back with his arm almost broken.

 Four more soldiers appeared and one solider jumped in to hit with the gun butt, other three shoot and aimed together with their laser beam gun.

This time Dr.Sun find where are those soldiers come from, they climbed up the wall from the bottom of the mansion, like ants.

More soldiers jumped on other's shoulders, like spiders.

More soldiers jumped into the roof, like grasshoppers.

 The attack directly hit to Monkey King's head.  Monkey King looked at the soldier and raised his hand to his right ear. 

There was the powerful Golden Cudgel, six million kilos in weight.  It used to be the ocean anchor in the East Sea, now it had shrunken into a hair sized piece and it links behind his ear. It is activated and glows to his power. Now the Monkey used this to attack the soldiers, sending them flying back and up onto the five steps of the nearby building. Monkey King held his baby with one arm and with his other he swings the cudgel.

Two soldiers then get up from the ground and aim their steams of lightning at Monkey King.

Preparing to fire their weapons, though Monkey King could see this coming and he jumped at the same time avoiding the lightning strikes. There was no time for full victory at this moment, six more iron shoes soldiers, jumped to Monkey King at the same time.

Dr.Sun struck with his Iron-Fan, the fan grabbed and threw away the soldiers like a magic palm.

Five soldiers flew into the same direction, but one soldier run away with Monkey Kings baby in his arm.

Monkey King screamed in anger at the sight, but all of the soldiers came together and jumped in front of him to block his way.  Because of this, Monkey King could not get to his baby. Then Dr. Sun and the Iran-Fan swirl to the front running after the soldiers and they managed to grab the baby back!

Now everybody went after Dr. Sun and the baby. Monkey King looked up to the sky, his tumbler cloud was always handy, and he drops to this new position. Now with the tumbler cloud carrying him, he turned a somersault to catch Dr. Sun and it carried him with the baby, they flew away and left Iron-Shoe Soldiers far behind.

Then Monkey King returned to the earth. He stood on the ground, smiling with the baby in his arms and the magic fan stays wrapped around him, hanging loosely from his back. He reached and he pulled the baby high into his arms. He raised the child back up to the sky. Then when the soldiers return he was not afraid. He simply extends the iron fan, and the soldiers back away as the baby was suddenly protected within the fan's waves.

One of the soldiers jumped away with the baby, and the rest of the soldiers jump in over Monkey King and Dr. Sun stepped in between the two of them. Monkey King bursts into a mad scream and spring out to catch the soldier that had his baby tight within his arms.  

The two of them jumped and kicked into the city's sewer. Monkey King tried to wrap his baby into a good package.

The old man from the tourist street came up. Monkey King smiled to him, thinking that it was good to see a human finally. Then to the King's big horror when the old man smiled, he revealed his sharp vampire teeth. He was Vampire Zsolt .

The vampire grabbed the baby back from his arms.

Monkey King didn't have time to scream, this time there were hundreds of Iron-Shoe Soldiers that jump him. He stroked with whirling his golden cudgel whirling like a running wheel, all the soldiers jump him pop off. But immediately ten more soldiers, twenty more, a hundred more soldiers come into fight. Then there was a mansion and tall huge trees. The Green Tree knight appeared from behind the trees in his shinning mask. He wears his helmet and armor, the shaking branches and the leaves become his horse with a green champion and panoply.

The green knight attacked Iron-Shoe Soldiers. When all of this commotion was going on, Monkey King then sprinted forth to attack the vampire, though he missed  because the vampire hoped up and down, then he swiftly turned  his head back and gave a grin to Monkey King.

The vampire threw the baby back to the monkey, and the baby was dead.

Then the baby's eyes lit up and they were fire eyeballs with golden pupils.  The monkey tried to open his sons’ eyelids, and he wants to see his son's fire eyes. The golden pupil again, then he found out its only eyes balls with no colors. He was too sad to think, and Iron-Shoe Soldiers kept coming, palpitating all over him, as quick as his heartbeat.

"Get up and fight Monkey!" Libby yelled at the monkey. A soldier leaps in to grab the baby's body; he grabbed the bundle easily because Monkey King didn't care to fight anymore. Dr. Sun flew in and Monkey King hided away from everyone. Amongst the endless attacks, Libby and the Green Tree knight and the Dr. Sun fought back and they dragged SUN-WÙ-KONG loosing its soul to run away from those keeping the coming soldiers off.

Libby started to smell Monkey King.  She found out that the soldiers could not come in this direction because of the scent that the monkey was giving off. Whenever the monkey rushed   away, they always located him again because of his scent and even though they could not see him.

Libby threw Monkey King into the water when Dr. Sun's Iron-Fan carried them off into the sewer. Monkey King jumped out of the water, appearing to everyone, they all thought that they had lost him for a moment there. Now Monkey King was awake with his angry soul. He pulled out his head and he asked Libby. "What are you doing?!"

Libby smelled him, and dipped his head back. All of his body turned to water all over. "What the hell are you going?" Monkey King screams very loudly, under the water. He was very powerful, but Libby had no problem to push and hold steady to keep him under water.

Under water, Monkey King saw mirrors. Also, he sensed the smell of fish?! And the smell of fish made his hairs risen up.

He sees a glazed pagoda walled by precious mirrors, about ten thousand of them. The mirrors differed in sizes and shapes. Among them were the Heavenly King Animal Button Mirror, White Jade Heart Mirror, Self-Doubt Mirror, Flower Mirror, Wind Mirror, Male, Female Mirror and the Purple Silk Lotus Mirror.

Now he remembers something, there were two mirrors, if he saw these mirrors, he may remember something? Something very important?

Water Mirror, Ice Plat-Form Mirror, Iron-Faced Lotus Mirror, Self Mirror, People Mirror, Moon Mirror, South Sea Mirror, Queen's Mirror, Green Lock Mirror, Serenity Mirror, Black Mirror, Bronze Mirror, Parrot Mirror, Silence Mirror, Image Mirror, First Queen's Mirror, One Smile Mirror, Pillow Mirror, Scenery Gone Mirror, Flight Mirror...

He saw thousands of reflections in the mirrors. The terrible smell of the fish seemed flowing all over his hairs, deep to his very bones. The fish was the water, the sea, the ocean... Mackerel in the sea, Lust Demon that rule the ocean.

At the beginning of life, light substances rose to the sky, heavy substances formed the earth. The in-betweens, humans, settled on the earth. The near-light substances and the least heavy substances gathered in the Flower-Fruit Mountain, which created Monkey King. The near heavy substances and the least light substances congregated in the Little Moon Cave, which created the fish Mackerel.

Monkey King and the Mackerel Spirit were born at exactly the same moment, same day, same month and same year. However, Monkey King represented righteousness and Mackerel Spirit symbolized evilness. The Mackerel Spirit's capacity overwhelmed Monkey King's by ten times. He had a huge body with its head and feet stretching from Mountain Kun-Lun to the star of Mystery... The Monkey was sleeping under a tree, and the fish was watching and waiting under the ocean.

There was a par excellence mirror, with a stele carved with the words "Ancient World", when Monkey King sticks his head, he saw ancient people, ancient world, he even saw his past, how he conceived by a fairy stone, he was as a stone monkey living underneath the sea. Then he was crowned to be the king because he discovered the best kingdom under the waterfall for the monkeys. How he left his kingdom to learn and gained the superpower, how he got punished because he decided that he should be the Heaven Emperor...

The Future Mirror! An amazing thinking crystal mirror, and the mirror became sky high when Monkey struck his head in! Monkey yelled under the water:" The future mirror!"

Now he remembers! He came to this water, came to all of these through the future mirror!!

Libby still held him under the water. The soldiers came in bundle and they all prepared to fight, but they found nothing to stop for, all of the soldiers jumping and they passed Libby and water pool all over, one bundle after another bundle...

Then all of the soldiers were gone. Libby kept pushing Monkey King's head back into the water hiding him away from the soldiers. So that they could not see him or smell him. Then the monkey king became tired and he was over drinking.

When he jumped out of his head, this time he chose the shortest question: "Why?" Libby didn't have time to answer his questions because one more soldier was coming. She pushed monkey in the water again and the soldiers jump away, pass them they do not see that he was hiding underneath the water. When monkey King stayed within the water, for a long time, he then started to learn how to deal properly with this strong lady. Whenever they sensed the soldiers passing by, he simply went back into the water to hide.

"Iron-Fan Princess. Wants me to have you to protect my son because she can not protect the baby." Dr. Sun, said. Monkey King looked sincerely to him. Behind them the walls of the sewers were an ever lasting rank color and scent. "I know." Monkey King answered. "I recognized the Iron-Fan . The instant I saw you where riding."

Very very sadly, Monkey King drowned himself in the water again, and this time he spoke within the water. "But now my son is dead! I don't even get the chance to feed him!" he was crying underneath the water as he spoke.

The green knight said. "Vampire Zsolt collects the best human being's body for the DNA to reproduce the human robot. Your son is supposed to be the best DNA sample. I think I know where is the Capital Town, in Chicago!" He said. "A Bank has just bought all the lands close to the old town park; they try to cut down all the big trees in their lands. My cousin had found some urban scientists live on the trees, hunger protest to against they come to cut the trees."

"Those robots can only see with regular human seeing, so the lady maced you with the smell of some strong fragrance so those robots can always smell to find you, the only way to fight these robots shall be to find the source of fragrance and destroy it." "What for?!" Monkey King answered:" He is gone, I only get to hold him once, not even over a minute!!" "It's actually a phantasm," Green Knight said: "I think I saw the vampire leave with something hiding in his arm,"

Monkey King flew out the pool, shakes and dried himself in the middle of sky, when he landed his foot on the earth, he laughed:" Nobody beats Monkey King! I'm going to hell and rescue my son back. Did anybody know where the entry of hell in this zone is?"

"Only the ghosts know" Libby said. Monkey King looked at Dr. Sun.

Dr. Sun said:" I will go with you, I will help! You see, I still have the Fan, it will carry us everywhere. "Monkey King glanced him in surprised, Dr. Sun seemed to say that he didn't even know he is a ghost?!

"Only the old ghost knows!" Libby seemed to answer Monkey King's question:" New ghost eventually shall be there, but it's a one way trip, the hell emperor always get his hell angels to lock the ghost out of earth." 

Dr. Sun said: "Los Angels earthquake unearth and explore a huge Deep Wide Mine , hundred miners died a hundred years ago, lots of old ghost stayed in the mine until the earthquake unearthed them.  We can go there to see if any ghosts can lead the way."

"They don't know they died, and never get into the 4th dimension where they were supposed to be." Monkey King answer. Dr. Sun said:" Then I think I know where is an entry to hell now! The Bermuda Triangle! Most of scientist had decided that there must be an entry of three and half dimension over those sea, all the ships disappeared in that Triangle then re-appear as a ghost ship."

Monkey King kept staring at Dr. Sun, then he finally decided to tell him the true: "Don't you know that you are not supposed to get yourself to be into these entries? It's no way back for you when they see you there, do you know the true..."

"Look!" Dr. Sun stopped Monkey King immediately with his palm:" Please don't tell me any truth whatever you want to tell me, I do not want to know!"

"Why not?!" Libby asked.

"The Iron-Fan Princess promised me that I can have this magic with this Iron-Fan , and the Magic Fan will stay with me UNTIL I LEARN THE TRUE." Dr. Sun said. Then he paused, because he remembered Friar Sand told him 'when you see Monkey King, to tell him that HE WILL GET KILLED WHEN HE LEARNS THE TRUE?!" He stopped in big confused, he was thinking about Friar Sand's saying so loud in his mind, he could not even sure if he had said it at all?!

SUN-WÙ-KONG looked at Dr. Sun's face, yes, he heard him! The truth will kill me? How?

How do I rescue my son from the hell? I'm Monkey King, nothing beats me! Shall I go to Deep Wide Mine for those old ghosts? Or shall I go to The Bermuda Triangle for the entry way to the three and half dimensions?

Monkey King lost himself in the darkness of the falling sunset in the sky.
