An ambulance siren penetrated the endless darkness, faintly at first, but growing stronger as it approached. Moments later, an emergency vehicle halted in front of the house.
She must have been lying there several days and nights, but help had come at last. Olivia murmured quietly "Thank God" as she thought of being rescued.

Suddenly she realized that she and her husband were naked. She remembered that when "big one" had struck they were in the act of making love. They had been pinned beneath the falling roof and walls of their apartment as they embraced in their bed.

Shin, her new husband, lay on top of her in the pile, covering her protectively. She realized she could hardly breathe.

Shin tried to comfort her: "It's OK, baby, the rescuers will be here. They’ll get us out as soon as they can." He talked to her about the honeymoon, about how much he loved her, and how lucky he was that she decided to marry him.

       

 

Shin's sweet talk made Olivia remember that earlier in their ordeal, when she felt like giving up, he had whispered in her ear, "Baby, don't you die and leave me. They're coming for us, and we’ve got a plane to catch. We're going to Miami. Just think about the sunshine, the beaches….Remember where you put those tickets, baby? We’ll need them as soon as they dig us out of here. "

Olivia's thoughts were interrupted by someone banging on a pipe. A voice called out: "Hello, anybody there?"

       

 

"Yes, yes, over here," she answered. Her voice was so weak that she realized her injuries were more than minor. The earthquake must have hit them really hard.

"Hello, anybody there?" the voice called out again.

Olivia began to worry that she might not be able to make herself heard at all. She summoned everything she had left to let loose the biggest, loudest, most raucous cry of which she was capable.

The sound that came out of her was scarcely more than before, but it was enough. "We hear you! We’ll find you. Keep making noise if you can."

Olivia's voice was gone, but with her free hand she groped for a piece of plaster or cement.. She found what felt like a small chunk of rock and used it to tap on the shaft of a large wooden beam that was pinning the two of them to their bed. She was so intent upon signaling the rescuers she did notice that her husband had fallen silent.

While the rescuers toiled on top of the wreckage to find a way down to the trapped pair, far below, the dark glossy form of a creature came slinking through the chaos, observed by no-one. Effortlessly, she navigated the gloomy, unmanageable spaces on a hundred undulating legs. Over and under everything she crawled looking for something.

  hc      

She noticed Shin and Olivia. They were not her concern. Dragon Millipede was so intent on finding Shin's crystal that she failed to notice another creature, hiding in the shadows, that had come after her as soon as she began crawling towards Shin's location.

Jump in from very far away, White Dragon, was about to pounce on her and force her to surrender the vial when the rescuers broke through to where Olivia and Shin lay trapped.

Deep down in his mind, he was still furious and confused as a young teenage dragon prince, he got punished for burning down his father's Dragon Palace because of the precious Night-Bright Peal, he was sentenced to avoid to be excused only if he join the West Journey mission, but what's happened now?! All of his teammates were gone, and now he didn't even know where he was.

eq      

 

 

Above the landline, there was a huge crack in a barren mountain slope, the landslide covered all of the trees, and a winding road. Aftershocks continually beat down the disrupted earth..

The rescuers avoided looking at the dismal scene of the collapsed mountain with its continual flow of water, mud and rock snaking down into the oceanside. Instead they concentrated on rescuing those trapped and buried alive beneath the collapsed building.

In an instant, Dragon Millipede was gone, and Dragon lost her trace. He now focused his attention on the rescuers and the people they were trying to help. He watched them struggle to free the couple, but it became apparent that the rescuers would need to bring in special equipment before they could lift the large beam pinning Shin and Olivia.

Dragon wanted to help. He studied the situation and realized that he could apply a little leverage on the beam in a place where the emergency crew would not see him. Having already called for the heavy equipment, the men were on the verge of giving up, but one, more impatient than the rest, urged the others to try again.

Dragon saw his chance and was on it before anyone realized what was happening. As the men wedged themselves under the beam struggling to lift it, Dragon gently forced the concealed end of it down on top of some debris, which acted as a fulcrum. It was just enough to budge the beam a foot or so. The rescuers were surprised but wasted no time, scrambling to prop it up with anything they could find. With the situation temporarily secured, they began to extract Shin and Olivia from their predicament.

Dragon was now free to resume his pursuit of Dragon Millipede. He knew what she was after, and he had been observing long enough to know that she did not get it. She would be back soon. The best thing, thought Dragon, was to hang around and be ready for her. In the meantime, he could hear a small group of people in in the street below. It was the usual crowd of reporters, cameramen, curious spectators, and police gathering around the ambulance, waiting for the bodies.

A female reporter waved and yelled to him: "Hey! Áo Áng."

It was Phenice Devine. She seemed to be the only observer who saw what White Dragon did from far away. She was walking towards him and her camerman began rushing forward to follow her.

Phenice wasn't very surprised to see how Dragon jumped, herself always got excited whenever she felt the strong wind or anything speedy, she got long and vivid eyes, with the fancy colorful jumpsuit, she always acted like a phoenix ready to be flying up. and she was happy to discover that how Dragon can jump.

"There is a mystery to this quake, I knew that as soon as I saw you!" She exclaimed as she caught Dragon's eye.

White Dragon was deciding on whether or not to avoid her, when he heard Ant Queen's voice cry out from far side of the dark ground: "Go after Dragon Millipede now! She left already because she didn't find the crystal!"

White Dragon jumped and disappeared quickly.

Phenice motioned to David, her cameraman, to shoot White Dragon, but David's camera could only capture freezing wind over the mountain road far away.

With the camera on her, Phenice said into the microphone: "As we reported after day 2 of the 'Big One', there is a mystery going on in this earthquake. Up till now the quake has killed mostly females in this area. We have another survivor and are about to find out if it is a female this time."

It was not long before the workers had Olivia loaded onto a stretcher, passing her up to waiting hands on top of the wreckage. She was carried down to the ground crew, which had been advised of her condition. All throughout the rescue operation the crew had been talking to her. She seemed remarkably lucid for someone who had gone days without food or water. She did not appear to be injured apart from a few cuts and scrapes, and, of course the dust covering most of her body.

The crowed cheered when they saw that Olivia was alive and talking. She startled everyone when she called out, "Wait, wait! The ticket!"

"What is she saying about a ‘ticket’?" Phenice Devine, asked one of the paramedics

"No idea, ma’am."

When they brought out Shin on the stretcher, his body was entirely covered by a blue sheet. They wheeled him out of Olivia's sight. Phenice turned off her microphone and went over to talk to the men about the young husband.

"It's too bad about him. The victim is male, right? How were you able to get them out without special equipment?" Phenice inquired.

"Funny, that's just what I was asking myself. We couldn't budge what was on top of them. We were just gonna wait it out 'til Ray here said we oughta try one more time while we're waiting. And then this damn beam with a pile of stuff on top of it that was so solid suddenly moves when we lift it

"An adrenaline rush, possibly?"

"Not like any I’ve ever had," replied the man.

"Were they together?"

"He was on top of her, if that's what you mean. He took the force of the impact. Probably saved her life."

"A female survivor" she whispered to herself.

Phenice's line of questioning was cut short by the noises of the ambulance preparing to rush Olivia to the hospital. She hurried back to the ambulance to get a statement on Olivia's condition from the paramedics, but they weren't talking anymore. She had enough information already to realize that she was onto something strange with this story. Given the utterly unreal, earth-shattering stories of the past few days that were her job to monitor, this was saying something.

"Phenice Devine, American West News" Phenice came to look her eyes to eyes.

Olivia was pale and weak, the fresh air got her noses and chest floating up, and the sunlight seemed hurting her eyes, her eyes were still closed in pain. Like a beautiful swan wounded from Swan Lake.

Phenice told Olivia: "This earthquake has mostly claimed the lives of females, very strange, I need to figure out this mystery."

"Can I help you?" Phenice asked Olivia. "You seem to be trying to say something important."

"Please give this ticket to my husband, we need to catch the airplane to Miami, for our honeymoon..." said Olivia.

"But, "Phenice Devine told her in a very sad' shaking voice "Your husband died, his head was broken, earthquake hit him in the first attack, he saved your life."

"No, he was holding me and talking in my ear those days"

"I saw they wrapped him into the bag, he died over days ago..." Phenice looked at the ticket Olivia gave her.

It wasn't a ticket, it was a picture of a monkey riding a white Dragon, and Shin is holding Olivia, trying to show the dragon the gate to some entry.

Olivia didn't listen at all, she kept insisting, Phenice finally promised Olivia that she will find Shin and give him the ticket (even she saw that it's not a ticket already) .

The cameraman started to film the crushed Los Angeles aftermath of the quake. Phenice found the camera was continually avoiding somebody.

The cameraman told her that there were naughty people making faces, but when they played the video, all the footage was damaged, and nothing was recorded.

Over the radio, New mayor announced:"... ... that Earthquake decreased lots of people, merged with San Francisco's , Los Angeles's male to female sex ration is 25 to 10, meaning there will always 150/250 single man have to live without woman over .

For the next 10 years or until Los Angeles and San Francisco have re-construct into new order, the mayor proclaimed that NEW ORDER law allow and encourage each female to live with 4 men in one shelter's family camp. The new marriage shall be a seven years contract between two persons, and they get to decide if they want to renew it after 7 years... ..."

Phenice studied the picture from Olivia, over and over again, she could not understand the monkey' the flying fan, but when she stared at the dragon in the picture, she got the feeling that White Dragon would be back for this TICKET.

Phenice found out that Sun's funeral was set up to be a special case.

Most of rescue team left to excavate other sites. Another team of strangers came to take over where the first team left off. But they weren't concerned with finding more victims. They were there to excavate Shin Sun's house, sifting through the wreckage as if in search of something. Phenice kept very close to Olivia. Olivia remained in a semi-disorientated state, telling everyone her husband had not died.

Phenice started to believe Olivia. Phenice watched as they put Shin into his coffin. In that instant, she saw that Shin's broken body turned into a fake copy in front of everybody's eye, the eyes and the nose lost the detail lines. But the two staff people lowered their eyes and busied themselves with Shin's clothes and attire, and were hoping that Phenice didn't see Shin's body transform. Phenice turned away and pretended that she didn't see it either.

They didn't care? or they knew it already?

Most of the cadavers were sent to the public cemetery. Most of the funerals and burials took place in mass, but Shin Sun had his own place, and there were lots of service agents still cleaning around the wreckage where his apartment once stood. They sorted all the broken pieces into several organized piles and sifted carefully through everything.

Observing silently from the sidelines, Phenice had a very good idea about what they were looking for. It seemed they couldn't find it, and they were expecting that something may come out in the funeral.

Olivia was still murmuring, never listening. Phenice kept very close company with her, and took care of almost every trivial thing for her.

An elderly man dressed in suit came to meet with Olivia: "Ms.Sun, I'm General Kay from Washington." He looked over at Phenice and smiled, Phenice returned his smile and retreated some, but not quite out of earshot.

"Do you know where Dr. Sun kept his crystal?" she heard General Kay ask Olivia. "He had one unfinished project with the White House, and now we need to see the crystal and see what has been done."

Olivia made no response, so General Kay repeated his question. Olivia began murmuring: "We are going to Miami tomorrow, we have tickets."

General Kay tried again, Olivia still murmuring, Phenice stepped forward and said it to General Kay: "Excuse me, but she is still disorientated, her heart rate is higher now, still not over 44, she is repeating the last thing in her mind, but she really can't hear other people. Her spirit is still out, her mind function weak, you are seeing a half empty soul."

General Kay raised his eyebrows.

They paused because they saw the banker Zsolt and Hollywood star Leggy Migliaia in attendance at the funeral, followed by several bodyguards. Leggy Migliaia's sexy, attractive appearance was always the focal point of any room.

Shin's sister Amy Sun came to see Olivia: "I added one more ticket for myself, Olivia."

"We are going to Miami tomorrow. We have tickets." Olivia answered immediately.

Amy nodded: "The web site was supposed to be dead after the earthquake. But it is the only order that went through, I found out when ordering on my credit card. He ordered air tickets to Miami for himself you and James Maurlias. The tickets to Miami were dated on the seventh day after the quake. Is James here now? "

"I'm here!" exclaimed James Maurlias. The handsome Irishman came forward and showed them his ticket, "I decided to stop by to see what's going to happen tomorrow". He was shocked to see his ex-girl friend's husband's funeral here, also confused that Olivia didn't care why he came and what he'd said.

Olivia started repeating that Shin had never died, and he would return at the end of 7 days and take her on their honeymoon.

Amy Sun told Olivia and James that she bought one more ticket for herself, so she would be on the same plane to Miami.

Amy Sun did not tell them what she'd learned about the 7th day. In that all dead souls always come home for their last visit on the 7th day. That would probably explain why Shin had ordered tickets for that 7th day.

Amy guessed that Shin's soul would be present and active on the flight to Miami, but she could not fathom what Shin's plan would be for the 7th day. Watching Olivia and James, Amy wanted to believe that Shin was trying to say goodbye to them and put them together. But deep down inside, Amy felt that Shin might want to take over James's body and start over with Olivia.

She did not even know, whatever Shin plan to do on 7th day, Iron-Fan Princess had came and interrupted the plan by sending Shin flying out delivering her son.

Amy asked Olivia if Shin had left any crystal, which he talked to very often.

Olivia was growing tired of everyone asking her about the crystal. "No," she responded, " I don't have the crystal, Shin will come to the honeymoon."

Amy patted Olivia and comforted her: "I really don't care about the crystal, I care about who is in the crystal, and what he taught Shin about how and where the souls go after death, I need to know what's Shin's plan is so I can best help him."

Olivia offered no response. Phenice overheard just about all the conversation, but was undecided on how to react, should she tell Amy about Olivia's disorientated state or just pretend she hadn't heard the exchange?

Finally, she approached Amy. "Amy, I've taken care of Olivia since her rescue. The ticket for Shin was replaced by this picture when Olivia handed it to me, how could the printer print such a thing? It's nothing like a ticket at all."

Amy was studying the picture printed on the "ticket". "Somebody changed Shin's plan, replaced his ticket with this picture as a message to Shin that when he boards the plane, he has monkey and dragon's business to do.

"Who could do this?" Phenice wasn't surprised that Amy didn't ask how a printer could start printing from data received from a quake damaged and downed.

"Only Iron-Fan is able to flew like a magic carpet," Amy said: "but it's so confusing."

Phenice was studying everybody's eyes. She lowered her own and wondered why only Amy's eyes were not lost in focus. Shin got the crystal to talk to so he could do lots of weird things, why was Amy not surprised by any of these things?

So Amy got another crystal from their father too?

There were more strangers at the funeral, they filed by the coffin to pay their final respects.

Phenice said to both Amy and Olivia: "Somebody already knows that it's not Shin Sun's body and are not letting you know that they are here for the other thing."

Olivia never wanted to see Shin in the coffin, Phenice and Amy accompanied her stepped forward.

Murmuring in front of coffin, Olivia finally said something different :" Give me his ticket."

Phenice handed her the ticket with the dragon and monkey's pictures.

Olivia put the ticket into the coffin, in slow and gentle motion, she put it into Shin's pocket, she said:" Don't be late."

As soon as they stepped away, Olivia went back to took out the ticket and put it into Shin's hand.

Amy and Phenice stepped back too, they put the flowers into coffin.

The funeral attendant began to lower the lid of the coffin.

Suddenly a giant Dragon Millipede appeared and attempted to grab the coffin. It's thousand legs extended and made layers of waves shaking the full space, everybody stepped back then forward to pull the coffin, they were all well trained and prepared for the situation, even the Dragon Millipede was too giant and furious, they were not afraid at all.

But the Dragon Millipede was too strong, she immediately shook off every human's hand on the coffin.

White Dragon jumped in to stop her leaving with the coffin.

The wall crashed down, many of Iron-shoes soldiers broke in to help Dragon Millipede. White Dragon was hitten and lost the coffin. Then there were lots of ant legs grabbed on the coffin, from the broken ground,

Lots of Ant army came up to help White Dragon. Each ant was big as a wolf dog, swing their arms and legs like the farmers swing their sickles holding in fists.

Out from the ant ranks, Ant Queen jumped up to choke on Dragon Millipede's throat.

Dragon Millipede gave up immediately, bounced into a whirling whirl and bounced out of the door. Dragon jumped to catch her, Ant Queen grabbed Dragon and to jump out of the door together.

Suddenly everyone quitted and disappeared, the Iron-Shoe soldiers, the Ant army, leaving the coffin, broken, in the room.

General Kay and a scientist couple approached to review the opened coffin. The riot left a mess, every item was gone except Shin's body.

Phenice was studying General Kay's expression, he seemed didn't care about losing everything, in fact, he seemed secretly proud about that Dragon Millipede and Iron-Shoe soldiers' took away something from him.

With her News reporter's sense, Phenice could almost guess what's hidden in General's eyebrows.

She looked at the broken ceiling and crushed wall, that needle-hole sensor was still working and videotaping, immediately she figured out that General Kay had been watching and recording whatever everybody put in the coffin all the time.

Robert and Debra, the scientist couple turned to greet Amy Sun:" I'm Debra, he is my husband Robert, Shin once told us that you would be always the best contact in case of his urgent, I believe you know what Shin did with us already."

Amy nodded.

Robert asked:" Let's face the music," he gave Phenice a hesitate glance, Amy nodded:" It's ok, Phenice know everything, and she is the only one give me the correct answer."

"What answer?!" Robert asked:" I'm asking you about what happened to the next project Shin was doing."

"I know nothing about the project. The answer Phenice told me is that we all going to the wrong way and wrong target, we all try to solve the problem with the tradition method. but it's the tradition ruined the earth. We shall not try to get back, or to improve the tradition way, human ruined the earth in last 50 centuries, it's the earth struck back in this new century."

35 per cent or more of the United States' population of the Western honey bee, billions of individual bees, simply flew from their hive homes and disappeared.

Where have all the flowers and fruits gone since our bees are disappearing?

The scientist couple went to other room.

Debra Niles took out a compass and asked Robert:" Turn on the round sextant, let's trace where did they take our crystal to."

Robert Niles stared at the sextant and raised his eyebrows:" We will need a aircraft to get them."

The light spot was flying in the sextant monitor.

"Do we need to be there early to sign in for the ticket?" Phenice whispered to Amy, looking around to make sure there was no-one within earshot to hear about the plane which Shin was planning to board.

Amy said: "Please keep close to Olivia until we meet Shin." she sighed:" It is so confusing, I hope Shin has figured out everything so he knows what to do. What's he going to do? back to the beginning to help people to find the right crystal, not to waste time for the gold rush? stop people to use powder and bomb to bust the mountain so there won't be so many earthquakes afterward?"

"Shin has no chance over there, all the foreign labors were imported as nameless slaves at that times, Whatever Shin aimed to do must be the wrong target," Phenice whispered to her:" If it's only for me to figure out, so don't worry, I will keep it a secret: being the Sun's ancestor daughter , of course you should own a very important Crystal too. The question is who is in that Crystal and talking to you all the time?"

"What if our enemy can hear or even your thoughts?" Amy was pleased to have met a person who understood her so well. "Great, even my dead mother never knew that I had the Crystal, please keep the secret. "Why," she continued, "Why do you say that Shin will flew to the wrong target?"

"I have already figure out that the myth is true. The earth strikes back! Humans mess up the earth, they turn the gender ratio from the impossible 100 male to 101 female into the Hopeless 101 male to 100 female, this kind of gender ratio messes up the earth, so the earth strikes back.

"What about this impossible 100 male to 101 female?"

Some males prefer 3 or 4 wives, they become sexually unsatisfied and greedy and fight for more than they can handle. Peace becomes impossible and hopeless.

Why is the ratio of 101 male to 100 female hopeless?

Some countries have a greater imbalance, like 3 males to 1 female, but they still make 4 wives legal, they are fighting for breaking apart pieces, they are living in overpriced homes they could never buy with a whole lifetime's earnings, the glaciers are melting because of global warming... ...

A boarding announcement suddenly crackles through the air: "Now boarding all passengers on flight number 2183 service to Miami at gate number 91."

Followed by another announcement: "This is a final boarding call for passengers Charles Taylor, Christopher Columbus, E.V.W. Jones, George Sand and Vincent Gaddis* on flight number D51945 to San Juan... .... ...

It's their first time get together, James Maurlias was so anxious and almost scream, where is it?!

Olivia was shy and she didn't know what to do...

It's all Xmas when they were together. They want the best from the most for each other. They felt comfortable to try everything on each other, their first kisses, made outs, they could fight for who didn't answer the phone.

They all learn that if they behaved themselves, Santa Claus would give them presents. Now they wanted each other to behave themselves, so they would have a lifetime marriage of Prince and princess live happily ever after... ...

"This flight has boarded and is waiting on you in order to depart. Passengers Charles Taylor, Christopher Columbus, E.V.W. Jones, George Sand and Vincent Gaddis, please make your way to Gate 34 to San Juan, your aircraft is ready to depart... ..."

Then it's Shin Sun made it on her now, she felt relax and open up.

After James got a new job and moved long distance, Olivia met Shin in computer company.

Shin didn't talk like a Santa Claus's good kid at all, he didn't believe life-term marriage, he always want to compare the divorce rate and which country have 3 times ratio of male than females.

He wanted to monitor the world in clear data record reports, but he made the world to be very impossible to clear up, he told Olivia there was bisexual between male and female, to be most annoying, he said there were male' bisexual and female , three types of male and female.

He talked about breast cancer more than breast implant.

He believed in Santa Claus, he said Santa died, but his spirit still go around, he talked to him once, through a friend in a crystal... ...

We don't looking for life term happy marriage, that's what mortals do. We won't buy a house that will cost us to work over 90 years without eating and any other spend...

Then it's the whole world quaking and shaking!...

It's Phenice's voices arise from the airport waiting room:" I know where we are going now! Miami, San Juan, ... ... and Bermuda Island!"

Chapter 1 to 7 focuses on the origin of Monkey King 孫猴王 conceived by a fairy stone in the Flower-Fruit Mountain 花果山, he was a stone monkey living under the sea of Aó Lai2 State 敖來州, part of the divine land Dong Sheng4. In order to compete with the lifespan of heaven and earth and achieve immortality, Monkey King left home and was apprenticed to Bodhi' 菩提 thus named Sun-Wù-Kong 孫悟空 meaning "Pondering on emptiness". After he obtained the powerful golden cudgel, a gift from Dragon King Aó Guang3 敖廣 of the East Sea, he immediately claimed himself a saint that enjoyed equal power with heaven. Later, Monkey King had to be pressed under Wu3-Hang2 Mountain 五行山 for 500 years for stirring up trouble in the heavenly palace..

Flame Mountain : Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan.

From chapter 59 to 61, Monk Tάng and his team stopped at Mountain Flame, where they saw no trace of living things. The whole mountain was covered by fire. To pass through, they had to borrow the palm-leaf fan belonging to Princess Iron Fan, wife of Ox King.

Unfortunately, Monkey King had earlier captured their son, the Red Child, whom Budhisattva had taken in as a finance boy. The Princess remembered that incident and therefore refused to lend them the fan. Monkey King changed himself into an insect and hid among tea leaves. Once he got into the Princess's stomach, he started to move around violently until she could no longer bear the pain. Finally, she agreed to lend her fan. However, she gave him a phony one. Monkey King was almost burned half dead by trying to quell the flames by the phony
fan.

On the second try, Monkey King stole Ox King's Golden-Eyed Beast under water while the King was having a party at the Blue-Waved Pond. Monkey King changed into the form of Ox King and came to the residence of the Princess. There he fooled her and got hold of the real fan. However, he only obtained the incantation on how to enlarge the size of the fan, but forgot to get the codes for reducing the size. Consequently, Monkey King had to carry the fan on his back. On his way home, unfortunately, he met Ox King, who appeared as Pigsy and tricked him into returning the fan.

Finally, Monkey King and Ox King had a big battle. Following the order of the Jade Emperor, Buddhist and Heaven troops came onto the earth and intervened. During the battle, Heavenly King Tuota and his 3rd son Nazha captured Ox King. To save their own lives, Princess Iron-Fan and Ox King had to surrender their fan. Monkey King took the fan and waved 49 times on Flame Mountain. The fire was gone immediately. Rain replaced fire, moisture replaced dryness. Walking on the smooth paths, Monk Tάng and his team easily passed through the mountain and continued their journey westward.

Future Mirror : After they left Flame Mountain, Green Fish sneaks in and manipulates Monkey King's dream while he is napping.

Chapter 10 is titled [Returning To The Thousand-Mirror Labyrinth 萬鏡臺行者重歸; Monkey King Rescued Himself At Ge-Jing Palace 葛藟宮悟空自救.] Monkey King put Qin Gui into a calabash and turned him into thick liquid. He then offered the liquid to General Yuè Fei for the redress of frame-up. Yuè rebuffed the invitation and said scornfully that even half a bite of the trator's flesh would make his body stink for half a year.

Monkey King took off his robe and left the Gate of Hell for the Mystery World. There he met a self-claimed "New Ancient 新古人" who could not go back into Ancient World, had to stay and open a restaurant business.
Monkey King then asked him how could he return to Blue Green World so that he could continue accompanying Monk Tάng to the Western Journey. The New Ancient answered: "Trace your way back. The way you came is the way you leave." He pushed Monkey King as his last word fell.

The push of The New Ancient pushed Monkey King into another Future Mirror, which opened the beginning of my novel [American West Journey 美國西遊記].

In chapter 15, White-Dragon Horse 白龍馬 was caught in the Eagle-Scared Ravine, Originally the son of Dragon King Aó Jin4 in the State of Guang in the West Sea, he committed arson and burned the bright pearls. For this crime he was sentenced to death but later rescued by Buddha, who turned him into a horse to serve Monk Táng.

http://www.americanwestjourney.com/westJourney1570.html

In chapter 19, Pigsy 豬八戒 was
captured on Mountain Fú-Lái 福來山. Named "Searching for Abilities 豬悟能", Pigsy was originally a general of Water God in the Milky Way. After assailing and harassed the Moon Goddess at the Fairy Peach Party while he was drunk, the general was demoted onto the earth and turned into the form of a pig.

[West Journey 1570] : In chapter 22, Friar Sand 沙僧 disappeared in Flowing Sands River.

Like Pigsy, Monk Sand also used to be a general. He was demoted onto the earth and fell into Flowing Sands River for breaking the crystal glass roof at the Fairy Peach Party.

He knew that he could not foresee the future. He could not even learn the capability after he was promoted to be Convolution General in Tài-Yǐ Temple.

Long time ago in the underworld, Yama's promoted him to be the hell angel among his Rakshasa group. Without the earth body, the faces were never important among the ghosts and Rakshasa, All souls of ghost were fading and exhausting in hell's forever nights, the recycle of metempsychosis once was whirligig so fast that he and his co-angels had almost clean out ghost population in their duty zone, he was promoted to the heaven's Convolution General in Tài-Yǐ Temple.

Then he broke the Tài-Yǐ crystal lantern in the temple. It was an accident, Monkey King agitated the battle in south heaven, General Convolution was supposed to together his troop, and to join the battalion just to capture the stone monkey who happened to decide that he should be the Emperor of the Heaven.

The Tài-Yǐ lantern dropped out of his palm and the crystal pieces drop out of the Tài-Yǐ Palace, down to the earth, planted to be the Tài-Yǐ mine under earth.


He was demoted down to be the Friar Sand in the Flowing Sands River; he was sentenced to wait there until he got called to serve the West Journey mission. He was waiting for the monk in those forever nights of sands of streams.

After hundred of years, he saw the first guy who try to cross the Flowing Sands River.

Friar Sand decided that the guy was not the monk to get him out to the journey; he stayed very far to observe the human drown into the sand.

When he saw the guy came in with the same face again, he started to count the earth years and figure out there was a palingenesis going on the guy. He had decided that the guy was never the calling for his West Journey Mission, so he still stay very far and watching him drowned.

The guy came again, same face, dressed and prayed like a friar this time. Friar Sand did not answer his pray to appear to save him.

The fourth time, the fifth time, the guy with the same face kept coming in and each time would start to dress as a monk.

Friar Sand decided it's a comeuppance for the guy, but nevertheless he dived to the bottom of the river to collect the guy's skulls, and he started to form the guy's face on his earthling body.

When Xúan-Zhùang came to the river accompany with fellowship of Monkey King SUN-WÙ-KONG (meaning "Pondering on emptiness")' White Dragon and Pigsy Wù-Néng (meaning "Searching for Abilities"), Friar Sand had nine shrunken skulls hanging on his necklace. the skulls were so small that nobody would think it's only walnut nuts.

Xúan-Zhùang gave him a disciple name as Sand Wù-Jìng悟淨 (meaning "Trying to Comprehend Purity "). He used to be the oldest angel from hell angel to Heaven General, now he becomes the youngest disciple in the fellowship for the West Journey mission.

Now he still got Wugene's face, and Wugene was in Africa? Isn't he supposed to come to Flowing Sands River again, to cross that river of all sinking and no return? And why am I able to see the future? In Wugene's face? And in Wugene's home town on Wugene's 10th life?

Xúan-Zhùang, became a monk when he was 13. 

Chéng, Hui 陳 褘 was his name before he became a monk (Hui means 'ceremonial robe of empress worn in time of sacrifice'). Jiang-Liú 江流 was his child pet name (Jiang meaning river, Liú means flowing).

(Qín Emperor had chained most of young men to build the Great Wall, then Súi Emperor had slaved whole country's men to dig the tunnel rivers flowing countrywide, to avoid these kind of labor, kids got married very young in those ages.)

A cock that was part of Xúan-Zhùang's wife's trousseau, was scratching in Xúan-Zhùang's garden in his wedding. It found Leggy Centipede's nest and ate all her offspring. The cock was about to eat Centipede herself, but instead of hiding beneath a stone, Centipede saved herself with merge into a fallen Ti-Yi crystal. Afterward, she took it, learned the secret of its magic, and used it to make herself immortal.

Xúan-Zhùang's wedding firecrackers killed Centipede's whole family.

Centipede put a curse on Xúan-Zhùang's wedding. She always wait to perform  the fireworks in Xúan-Zhùang's wedding night.

At age 13, the couple went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south. Xiang-Zhen was kidnapped on the spot. (So Xiang-Zhen should always call Xúan-Zhùang by his child pet name Jian-Liú, u pronunciation in 2nd tone).

Tormented by this loss, Xúan-Zhùang wandered into the Temple Of Pure Earth where he became a monk. 

17 years later on his way to the West, Xiang-Zhen suddenly emerged. Failing to persuade Xúan-Zhùang to resume a secular life, Xiang-Zhen swore to wait for him forever.
