INT.BLACK'S BARN

The sun broke through the clouds and melted the dew clinging to the freshly cut blades of grass. FRIAR SAND awakened wiping the dust from his eyes. Spitting hay from this mouth he took notice of his surroundings. Large bushes of hay laid stacked against the barn wall. Old farming machinery were scattered through the area.

On the ground next to him, laid a large piece of glass which mirrored a reflection in it. As FRIAR SAND moved closer to the glass he noticed a brown skinned reflection of a man with large white teeth. He quickly turned around to notice that he was the only person in the barn. Therefore, the reflection could be none other than his own. His hair was short and his face was freshly shaved. His skin was brown and smooth. He resembled a well-maintained young adult.

As he marvels at this image, he was started by a high-pitched voice coming through the barn door entrance.

Katrina

"Uncle Eugene, Uncle Eugene, you are back"( screams the little voice excitedly. With her arms in full extension she approached FRIAR SAND and gave him a hug.)

Having no time to respond, FRIAR SAND stood motionless.

Katrina (cont'd)

"Uncle Eugene how is Africa? Have you found what you were looking for?"

TYRA BLACK

"Katrina baby, who are you talking to??"

A beautiful black woman stood at the door with a huge smile. The woman hugs both him and the little girl together.

TYRA BLACK (cont'd)

"My baby brother is back from his trip, how was it?"

FRIAR SAND

"How is everything."

katrina

"Uncle Eugene, you came home right in time for church"

said Katrina competing with her mom for talk time.

FRIAR SAND was quite bewildered and didn't know how to react. He was tugged on the arm by Katrina.

katrina (cont'd)

"Yea!" (pulling FRIAR SAND towards the house) " Come on we don't want to be late for the sermon!"

Katrina leaded him to the driveway. Sight of the car surprised him because he had never seen anything like me before. His attention was diverted when he saw a crowd of kids running after an ice cream truck.

Tyra continuously talks never realizing that it was the very first time FRIAR SAND has ever seen a car. She opened the door and didn't notice that FRIAR SAND stumbled upon stepping into the front seat.

TYRA BLACK

"The church will be excited to see you back",

TYRA BLACK (cont'd)

"How was Africa? Did you get to see the African queen? ...Oh, I missed you so much"

FRIAR SAND has never been in a car before so naturally he looked around like a curious baby. He plays with the windows by making them go up and down and sticks his head out of sunroof.

Tyra was so concerned with getting to church on time that she stopped the questions and let him and Katrina enjoy the ride and the city's pleasant morning scenery.

As they pull into a long driveway, Eugene curiously looked as they draw nearer to the sanctuary grounds.

The church was made of solid brick with the title Mount Messiah in gold letters suspended above the doors. Before the three could get out of the car; the melodious harmony of the organ pipes could be heard.

As FRIAR SAND approached the stairwell he over heard the conversation of two women.

WOMAN 1

"It's been four days. The police have searched everywhere.

 

 u      
  g7      

WOMAN 2

"I hope nobody hurts my baby"

WOMAN 1

"Everything will be alright sister, just have faith in God"

FRIAR SAND proceeds up the stairwell, and at once a vision entered his mind. He was shaking, all of sudden, he knew the kid's whereabouts! He closed his eyes; he even knew the kid's whole name. As the images become clearer he heard very loud music, as if the kid and the music were linked together. Yet, this all happening so quickly that FRIAR SAND has no time to think about what he just envisioned.

Katrina hurriedly walked up the stairs waving Tyra and FRIAR SAND to quicken their pace.

KATRINA

"We don't want to be late now", warns Katrina.

As the triumvirate entered the great walls of the church the pastor's deep voice echoed over the music. The organ pipes bellowed a sweet melodious tone, as the powerful microphone speakers; amplify the pastor's powerful words.

REVEREND JOHNSON

'Praise God, Praise God, Good morning church'

'Good morning', the congregation replied in unison.

REVEREND JOHNSON

'This morning church we are going to give honor to God by taking up an offering for the church's children's ministry.'

REVEREND JOHNSON (CONT'D)

'Our children are planning to take a trip to the Martin Luther King Museum of Black History so we need to support their educational growth.'

'Amen', replied various members of the congregation.

REVEREND JOHNSON

"We now are all God's children, and we shouldn't forget that God has a plan for each of us, we shall remember God's unconditional love toward us, we shall take a moment to thank God every day,"

Reverend Johnson

" Let's praise God, Amen."

"Amen", replied various members of the congregation.

As Katrina, FRIAR SAND and Tyra sat down in the pew, they were greeted with a head nod by MRS. MOSLEY.

MRS. MOSLEY was well known at the church for her elaborate and bright clothing. Every Sunday was like a fashion show to her as she struts in the church. Today she was draped in her mink shawl with a diamond studded necklace.

REVERENF JOHNSON

"Does the church have any guests today or anyone just in the neighborhood visiting this morning"

Before anyone could speak, Reverend Johnson spots a familiar face in the crowd. He wiped his face which was dripping with perspiration from the intense heat.

Reverend Johnson

"Let the church say Amen."

The Church responded, "Amen."

Reverend Johnson (CONT'D)

"Our Brother Eugene has just arrived back from his pilgrimage to Africa. He was a very wise, fearless man who decided to venture out into the world and find the truth for our people. Brother Eugene! Will you please stand up and tell your brothers and sisters here today about the future and the truth of our hometown."

FRIAR SAND felt very overwhelmed seeing that he didn't know exactly where or who he was but everyone else seemed to know.

Reverend Johnson motions FRIAR SAND to stand up and address the church.

As FRIAR SAND began to stand, MRS. MOSLEY quickly moved her feet so that it wouldn't be possible for FRIAR SAND to even accidentally step on her alligator shoes. People failed to applaud as FRIAR SAND approached the podium.

Reverend Johnson

"Tell us about your travels Brother Eugene."

All of a sudden as FRIAR SAND stood in front of congregation, he felt compelled to speak about everything else except his trip. It was as if FRIAR SAND had an epiphany as soon as he opened his mouth.

FRIAR SAND

"MR. WATKINS you don't have to worry about your stationary store. Your problem is going to be over very soon."

MR. WATKINS

"How do you know that my business is doing terrible, my business was doing well you when you were last here Eugene?"

FRIAR SAND

"It's all in your eyes,"

MR. WATKINS

"Nobody is buying enough pens and paper to save the store. Tomorrow I will speak to a lawyer and I'll have to file for bankruptcy."

FRIAR SAND

"You don't need to go tomorrow; somebody is coming to see you today."

MR. WATKINS remains silent not sure of how to respond.

FRIAR SAND scanned the congregation and found the two women who were speaking outside in front of the church.

FRIAR SAND

"Tyson Taylor is still alive. Send the police to capital Town Street and you will see a large man carrying a huge stereo on his shoulder. A few people were break dancing like this."

FRIAR SAND mocks the rhythm of a break-dancer.

FRIAR SAND

"Capital Town mailed pre-approved credit card to all people without credit. Tyson applied and got his first credit card even he is only 11 years old. Without anyone knowing, he exceeded his credit limit buying toys and candy. He has ran away from home to sell all this toys so he can pay for the bill. "Although Mrs. Taylor is not present with us this morning, someone should call her and tell her that one of the dancers on Capital Town Street knew where Tyson is."

The enter room was silent, when an old gentleman stood up.

Mr. Coley

, "Who do you think you are,... ...You can't predict the future. "

Mrs. Rogers

"Yeah, get out of here. You are not a prophet"

At that very moment, Officer Clark entered the church. He was sweating heavily as if he was running in a marathon.

OFFICER CLARK

"Excuse me church. I don't mean to interrupt this service but MR. WATKINS your help is needed. A bus has broken down in front of your store. The bus belongs to June Summers and her Presidential Campaign. Since their bus has broken down, they will be late for their next rally. To make up for lost time they will need to buy a lot of materials from your store to make their promotional signs and banners. But MR. WATKINS they need you to hurry back to your store and help them. They will pay you very handsomely for this inconvenience."

MR. WATKINS stood and looked at FRIAR SAND with an expression of great disbelief. He was in such shock that he couldn't utter a word to FRIAR SAND.

Before MR. WATKINS exited the church, MR. WATKINS stood and turned to Officer Clark,

MR. WATKINS

"Please send the police to the capital town street and you will find Tyson Taylor's whereabouts."

OFFICER CLARK

"How do you know that'

MR. WATKINS

"Because Eugene said so, now let's hurry up and get to my store." " I'll tell you the details later."

The two men rush out of the church. FRIAR SAND recants to the two as they leave.

FRIAR SAND

"Could you remind the Fire Department, tomorrow Ms.Bernice Bellemy's cat will get stuck in a tree. Tell them not to get distracted when she thanks them for saving the cat."


Officer Clark leaves the church with his mouth wide open in amazement.

MRS. MOSLEY stood up and took off her gold trimmed glasses and said to FRIAR SAND.

MRS. MOSLEY

"what can you see in my eyes?"

FRIAR SAND

"Crystal. I see crystal"

MRS. MOSLEY

"Crystal?... Oh! My new diamond necklace I bought yesterday. Yes. It's so gorgeous. I just adore it."

FRIAR SAND

"It's fake. You have been scammed"

MRS. MOSLEY

"What do you mean it's a fake? I paid a lot of money for it"

FRIAR SAND

"It's worthless. You should have bought the other diamond necklace at the first shop instead of shopping around for the bargain"

MRS. MOSLEY

" I will stop by tomorrow and return the necklace and get my money back."

FRIAR SAND

"Too late", retorts FRIAR SAND.

MRS. MOSLEY.

"Why?"

FRIAR SAND

"They have moved their store. You may not get your money back, but you may find a crystal which will help Marshal Pigsy to save his face in Indian casino."

MRS. MOSLEY

"Oh God, Oh God. ... ... My tears are staining my silk shawl. "Oh God!!"

At that moment, one by one every member of the congregation stood up and all asked FRIAR SAND to look into their eyes. FRIAR SAND was very surprised that he could speak to the masses about a lot of things without thinking.

FRIAR SAND

"Mrs. Hawkins, how many times are you going to keep calling the psychic friends hotline?"

MRS. HAWKINS

"How did you know that I do that?"

FRIAR SAND

"Mrs. Hawkins, just follow your intuition. When your husband comes home late everyday, you don't need to call any stranger to learn that he is cheating on you. Don't pay money to a service that is giving you false advice"

 

TYRA BLACK

" Eugene, you told me that when you came back from Africa you would be a new man. You definitely predicted that one right!"

All the people nodded with her together.

FRIAR SAND

"I'm not Eugene!"

Tyra looked at him, confused.

FRIAR SAND signed. He walked out of the church as the congregation applauded.

It's something FISHY?

 

INT. EUGENE'S BEDROOM NEXT MORNING.

 

The morning sunshine broke in the window, FRIAR SAND looked at the reflection of his face on the window's glass. He was also studying Eugene's photos on the wall.

What's the fate waiting for him over here?

KATRINA

"Uncle Uncle!" "You have guests!"

FRIAR SAND

"Ok tell them I'll be right there", ( Slowly raising out of bed.)

FRIAR SAND stared into the wall mirror. He admired his well-proportioned physique, before he exited the room.

FRIAR SAND

"So this is what I look like,"

 

As FRIAR SAND walked down the stairs he saw his three visitors seated. They were sipping coffee that Tyra has so kindly prepared for them.

Reverend Johnson stood and shook FRIAR SAND's hand.

reverend johnson

"Good morning Brother Eugene, we are sorry to wake you this morning but you have this entire town calling you a prophet."

Officer Clarke

"Brother Eugene, Tyson Taylor was found and brought to the hospital and I sent the fire department over to Mrs. Bellamy's house and sure enough, the cat was stuck up there in that tree. Unfortunately however, after getting the cat down from the tree, the fire truck mistakenly ran over the cat, when leaving the scene. But anyway, Eugene, you are amazing. After hearing the stories that both Reverend Johnson and MR. WATKINS have told me as we were arriving here, I think you have some sort of gift."

FRIAR SAND

" I know you therefore owe Mrs.Bellamy a favor, she insisted that you shall come here and ask me how to find her neighbor's kid back, even the kid has not disappeared over 24 hours yet, since you got her cat killed, you had to take the case and come to ask me. What's the kid's name?"

officer clark

"Tabatha."

Officer Clarke was in shack, he took out a little girl's photo, FRIAR SAND handed it to Katrina:

FRIAR SAND

" Katrina, could you go with Officer Clarke and help them to find your classmate, she was chasing some ducks and stuck into some fishnets along the river side. She is fine, a donkey is taking care of her, I think his name is 'Big Foot'?"

KATRINA

"Big Foot?! How do I find them?"

FRIAR SAND

"Ask your FRIEND," (FRIAR SAND gave her a wink:) " What's his name? Demos?"

TYRA BLACK

"Demos?" ( looked at her daughter: )" But it's her toy pony's name, she always spent lots of time with her imaginary pony friend!"

FRIAR SAND

"Demos is a very famous donkey, not pony, it's your mind and imagination render the images, so, only those kids able to see them," FRIAR SAND patted Katrina's head:" So, you know how to find Demos, and Demos will lead you to Big Foot, you don't need to try to make Officer Clarke seeing your imaginary FRIEND, probably they can't see it anyway."

( gave Katrina a eye-patch:)" When you find Tabetha, let her wear this patch because her eye is hurt, tell her to wear this to go to the next ballgame with her daddy, make sure she will wear this patch to the ball game, because this eye-patch will save a ball game."

MR. WATKINS

"When I arrived to my store yesterday, I was honored to meet June Summers. Her campaign party has decided to use my materials for the rest of her Presidential Campaign. I may never have to work again. But more importantly Brother Eugene, I told June Summers all about you and she was very adamant on meeting with you soon.'" Reverend Johnson raised his hands in the sky and looked at FRIAR SAND.

Three men drove down to MR. WATKINS store to meet June Summers and her political party.

As they exited the car, a middle-aged man wearing a tan suit eagerly approached the group.

RICHARD BRAGG

"My name is RICHARD BRAGG, Eugene; I'm June's running mate."

FRIAR SAND

"you have to go to the printing factory tonight to pick up the ballots for your foundation dinner, right?"

RICHARD BRAGG

"Well how did you know that?"

MR. WATKINS

"This is Eugene, the man I was talking to you and June about."

FRIAR SAND

"It is dangerous. There is going to be a gang shootout in the parking lot near that building. If you go there tonight you will be hit in the crossfire."

 

Everyone remained quite. FRIAR SAND continued by saying:

FRIAR SAND

"You need to very careful and duck your heads if you want to come out of there alive."

RICHARD BRAGG

"Hey why don't you tell me something I want to hear, like I'm going to win this election? I mean this business about some gang shooting is just an analogy about me winning the election right?"

FRIAR SAND

"I don't see that. You will be safe. A fire truck will pick you up. Everything connects to MR. WATKINS's Great Father's Warehouse. Only MR. WATKINS can save the entire town from the damage of the fire. So, MR. WATKINS will be too busy to pick you up."

RICHARD BRAGG looked at FRIAR SAND strangely. All that Eugene was speaking was nothing more then psychobabble to Richard. He sarcastically thanked FRIAR SAND for his advice and stormed away from the group.

MR. WATKINS and RICHARD BRAGG stepped out of the factory with three boxes of printed material.

MR. WATKINS nervously looked around in all different directions as they approached their car. RICHARD BRAGG notices MR. WATKINS apprehension but didn't follow.

MR. WATKINS

"Well I don't see any gangs around here. No shootouts going on."

RICHARD BRAGG

"Eugene wouldn't know a bullet if it smacked him upside the head"

 

As they approached the car they cautiously watched in every direction. Taking a deep breath, they placed the boxes in the car truck. The evening was still.

As MR. WATKINS started his car they were startled by a loud bang.

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).

That Monk Táng (Xúan-Zhùang) actually had a fiancee' was actually a known fact to people in his hometown, Stories go that as a young boy,

Hui Chéng (Xúan-Zhùang was his monk name) had married 徐 香 真 Xiang-Zhen (meaning fragrance-truth) , daughter of his mother's bosom friend Xú. 

(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. 

L.A. earthquake, Princess Iron-Fan asked Shin Sun to deliver her baby to the father.

And who was the father?! He could be White Dragon? Pigsy? Friar Sand? Xúan-Zhùang﹖or Monkey King? (The West Journey team of 5, they all had contacts with Iron-Fan Princess while they were inFlame Mountain.)

Watching time zone whirling in the front, he reached to see the left end of his own Global, he did not see his own conception from a fairy stone. Neither of his acquisition of super powers, neither of how he havoc in Heaven and punished to be in the West Journey mission.

All he sees was himself asleep and dreaming under a plum tree, with a Green Fish waiting aside, and staring at him.
