chapter00Preface: Awaken in The Big One

Earth was still again. The awful shaking was over.

Somewhere in the darkness a dog was howling. Then it stopped.

Dr.sun, shin (zhi-sheng)

Dr. Shin Sun stood high above the city contemplating the skyline from the terrace of his high-rise. He could see for miles. He seemed almost serene as he looked out upon the wreckage. An enormous vein of gold had been exposed by the temblor.

"It can't be what it looks like" he said to himself.

Tài-Y? crystal!

Shin was losing himself in his thoughts when a voice startled him.

iron-fan princess

"Sun?Zhi-Sheng."

(His Chinese name was called correctly with the family name 'Sun' being the first.)

"Shin Sun,"

"the earthquake has revealed to you the hiding place of the great golden lode."

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"Who are you?"

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"I am Princess Iron Fan,"

"I knew your great grandfather. It was he who found the crystal in the days he worked for the railroad. Shin Sun, I know your desire," she

"I will help you to obtain more crystals, but you must deliver my baby to his father for me."

West Journey was the epic of Xúan-Zhùang who went in search of wisdom during the Táng Dynasty around 600 A.D. To further his quest he enlisted the help of a hero known as the Monkey King and formed a fellowship. Shin recalled that the fellowship included other characters called White Dragon, Pigsy, and Friar Sand.

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"This is nuts," (he thought.) "That was a story, a fiction written over 1300 years ago!" (Shin stared at his airborne messenger and thought) "Impossible. She's got to be some kind of hallucination or psychic glitch induced by the trauma of natural disaster."

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"Monk Xúan-Zhùang and his fellows traveled to the Mountain of Flame. In order to pass through it, they fought with me. They wrested my palm-leaf fan and used it to quench the mountain's fire."

"Now, with a mother's sorrow, I must tell you that I can no longer keep my child."

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"I can't believe this," (Shin thought.) "She's running on about a 'Mountain of Flame' and the birth of a baby that was supposed to have taken place in the year one thousand something like it was yesterday and this is twenty......"

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"This is the year two thousand twelve,"

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"My God, she's finishing my thoughts for me. Is she actually reading my mind? " (Shin formed the questions mentally.) "Where are Xúan-Zhùang and the fellowship now? Weren't they supposed to have finished their journey to the west one thousand years ago?"

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"After they left the Mountain of Flame, they came forward in time to this place, America, through the crystal mirror of the future. Xúan-Zhùang is now in Chicago, Monkey King is in New York. Friar Sand is on his way to the White House. Pigsy has gone to Las Vegas, and White Dragon is in Hollywood."

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"This is starting to get more than a little creepy," (He is having a wordless conversation with a thousand year-old fantasy woman floating in mid-air.) "I must be dreaming."

He glanced up at the Princess to see her nodding in agreement. Shin broke out in a cold sweat. The princess hesitated. She hadn't the heart to tell him the thing he would want to know next. His tone softened:

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"Who is the father? Which one of the fellowship was he?" (Shin wondered silently.) "Is he The White Dragon?" "No, it couldn't be White Dragon,"

Shin concluded. Princess Iron-Fan was still following his thoughts, but said nothing.

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"What about Pigsy? "

"What about Friar Sand?" "No, Friar Sand cannot be the father," (though Shin.) "But then if not him, who? And why am I- "

Shin aimed his thought directly at Princess Iron Fan.

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"Why am I the one to deliver your baby to its father?"

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"My son will not wake until he is delivered into his father's hands, when his eyes open again, everyone will know who his father is."

Bewildered, Shin spoke aloud,

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"Princess, you are immortal. You have extraordinary powers. Why can't you deliver the baby yourself?"

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"If I could do that, I would keep him and rear him," (she replied with a trace of bitterness.)

The palm-leaf blew Shin off the railing into the air and drew him back into its wake. Effortlessly it caught the doctor, but Shin's landing was surprisingly hard.

DR.SUN, SHIN (ZHI-SHENG)

"That really hurt, even if I am dreaming. This is no soft magic carpet," he complained.

The Princess laughed a little at Shin's clumsiness.

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"The Iron-Fan will accompany you until you understand why it is that you were chosen."

Shin reached out and embraced the baby, still in deep sleep.

The princess kept her eyes on the fan until it vanished into the horizon.

Time was running out. It was almost dawn.

Princess Iron-Fan sighed and began her long, slow descent to the ground.

When her feet touched the bottom of the circle she spotted the thing she was looking for. It was the Tài-Y? crystal glowing faintly in the dark.

The princess stopped to retrieve the crystal. Then turning to Dr.Sun, she knelt gently beside him, took his hand, and wrapped his dead fingers around the stone. A moment later the body began to regenerate. Broken bones straightened and healed. Wounds closed and abrasions faded.

The princess took the crystal out of his hand and inserted it under Shin's tongue. Color returned to Shin's face:

IRON-FAN PRINCESS

"Shin, you thought this small piece was just a left-over? You were wrong, this is the crystal root, it come out by itself when you tried to cut it."

Unexpectedly, a cellular phone began to ring. The princess hesitated and kept listening, a baby crying in her back, she raised her fingers and twirling to aim to her back, a crying baby girl dressed in pink appeared from her back and fallen into her arms, she was waken by the cell phone ring.

Holding and hushing the baby girl wrapped in pink, guided by the sound of a cell phone preset musical tone; the princess found it tucked into Shin's breast pocket.

She took it out and looked at it curiously. It continued to ring. Perplexed, she held it away from herself and circled her finger around the case.

She frowned and knitted her brows, the electromagnetism waves are so harmful and all fill full of the air! No where to escape!

She listened carefully to find among millions of voices in simultaneous conversations the right one:

debra

"Hello, Shin? Are you there? We heard the news about the quake early this morning. Did it hit your building? Are you all right? Shin, this is Debra. Robert and I are a couple of nervous wrecks wondering if you're o.k."

sun, hermit (IRON-FAN PRINCESS)

"Debra" (answered the princess, hoarsely mimicking Shin Sun's baritone.) "Wait, please."

Princess Iron-Fan then sprayed herself over Dr.Sun's lifeless body, first touching her forehead to his, and then merging her entire body into his. Shin's eyes opened, immediately holds up the baby girl into his arms. He sat up reaching for the cell phone. It flew immediately to his palm. Now he understood its operation.

SUN, HERMIT (IRON-FAN PRINCESS)

"Debra," (She said, this time in Shin's authentic voice,) "this is Hermit."

debra

"Who?" (The voices in the air switched into cell phone, became more clear.)

Sun looked at cell phone in highly praise:

SUN, HERMIT (IRON-FAN PRINCESS)

"It is Hermit Sun. Shin's twin brother. He must have told you about me. Listen, can you put Robert on the phone? I got a message from Shin."

The doctor waited briefly. Then a voice came on the line.

robert

"This is Robert."

SUN, HERMIT (IRON-FAN PRINCESS)

"Hi, I'm Shin's brother, Hermit. There's a hell of a lot that's happened around here, but promised Shin I'd get his message to you. He's out on urgent delivery right now."

ROBERT

"What is it?"

SUN, HERMIT (IRON-FAN PRINCESS)

"He wanted me to tell you to struck gold!

"The Deep Wide gold mine and the Titanium-Yttrium Crystal were unearthed by the quake..."

ROBERT

"Thanks."

They hung up.

The baby girl stopped crying and started gouging, watching Sun's face to smell him.

The princess holding her baby girl looked into the far, far place of the Los Angeles.

The sunlight seems to start gathering and coming back for the new day?

Earth was still again. The awful shaking was over.

The terror of thick, thundering darkness was evaporating into the clear night air.

Somewhere in the darkness a dog was howling.

Somewhere in the darkness a dog was howling. Then it stopped.
Dr. Shin Sun stood high above the city contemplating the skyline from the terrace of his high-rise. He could see for miles. He seemed almost serene as he looked out upon the wreckage.

An enormous vein of gold had been exposed by the temblor. "It can't be what it looks like" he said to himself.

Tài-Yǐ crystal!

Shin was losing himself in his thoughts when a voice startled him.

"Sun-Zhi-Sheng." His Chinese name was called correctly with the family name 'Sun' being the first.

 

"Shin Sun," she said, "the earthquake has revealed to you the hiding place of the great golden lode."

"Who are you?" he questioned.

Because 'Smart Computer' was top secret of the country, besides him and his collages designer, over the last twenty years, supposedly only all previous sessions of the Presidents and vice-Presidents knew.

 

"I am Princess Iron Fan," she answered. "I knew your great grandfather. It was he who found the crystal in the days he worked for the railroad. Shin Sun, I know your desire," she added unexpectedly. "I will help you to obtain more crystals, but you must deliver my baby to his father for me."

Shin's overworked brain was spinning out now. Princess Iron Fan? She is a character from ancient myth. The situation was growing more fantastic by the moment. Shin tried to recollect the details of a book he had read in his youth.

 

West Journey was the epic of Monk Táng who went in search of wisdom during the Táng Dynasty around 600 A.D. To further his quest he enlisted the help of a hero known as the Monkey King and formed a fellowship. Shin recalled that the fellowship included other characters called White Dragon, Pigsy, and Friar Sand.

"This is nuts," he thought. "That was a story, a fiction written over a thousand years ago!" Shin stared at his airborne messenger and thought: "Impossible. She's got to be some kind of hallucination or psychic glitch induced by the trauma of natural disaster."

Princess Iron-Fan went on with her tale: "Monk Xúan-Zhùang and his fellows traveled to the Mountain of Flame. In order to pass through it, they fought with me. They wrested my palm-leaf fan and used it to quench the mountain's fire." The princess paused brieflew for effect. "One of them overcame me and fathered this child. Now, with a mother's sorrow, I must tell you that I can no longer keep my child."

"I can't believe this," Shin thought. "She's running on about a ‘Mountain of Flame’ and the birth of a baby that was supposed to have taken place in the year one thousand something like it was yesterday and this is twenty......"

"This is the year two thousand twelve," Princess Iron-Fan interrupted.

"My God, she's finishing my thoughts for me. Is she actually reading my mind? " Shin formed the questions mentally. "Where are Monk Táng and the fellowship now? Weren't they supposed to have finished their journey to the west one thousand years ago?"

The princess didn't miss a beat.

"After they left the Mountain of Flame, they came forward in time to this place, America, through the crystal mirror of the future. Xúan-Zhùang is now in Chicago, Monkey King is in New York. Friar Sand is on his way to the White House. Pigsy has gone to Las Vegas, and White Dragon is in Hollywood."

"This is starting to get more than a little creepy," He is having a wordless conversation with a thousand year-old fantasy woman floating in mid-air. "I must be dreaming." He glanced up at the Princess to see her nodding in agreement. Shin broke out in a cold sweat.

 "What about Friar Sand?"

"No, Friar Sand cannot be the father," thought Shin.

"But then if not him, who? And why am I- " Shin aimed his thought directly at Princess Iron Fan.

 

"Why am I the one to deliver your baby to its father?" The Princessí answer was more a riddle than an answer: "My son will not wake until he is delivered into his father's hands, when his eyes open again, everyone will know who his father is."

Bewildered, Shin spoke aloud, "Princess, you are immortal. You have extraordinary powers. Why can't you deliver the baby yourself?"

"If I could do that, I would keep him and rear him," she replied with a trace of bitterness.

"Thanks." They hung up.

 

The baby girl stopped crying and started gouging, watching Sun's face to smell him. The princess holding her baby girl looked into the far, far place of the Los Angeles. The sunlight seems to start gathering and coming back for the new day

"Shin Sun", the princess was speaking to the sky, the direction of the flying Iron-Fan , she wanted to talk very carefully, because she only want Shin's sky soul to be hearing, not his person soul:" In case of you can not make yourself return in time for your seventh day, Don't be regret, I'll go to Miami for your 7th day's appointment."

Preface: Awaken in The Big One (chapter00' 04' 08' 10' 15):  L.A. earthquake, Princess Iron-Fan asked Shin Sun (who didn't realized that he died in Earthquake) to deliver her baby to the father by riding on the flying Iron-Fan.

And who was the father?! He could be White Dragon (chapter01'03'09)? Pigsy(chapter02'11' 14)? Friar Sand(chapter05' 07' 12)? Xúan-Zhùang(chapter06' 13)or Monkey King(chapter08'10)? (The West Journey team of 5, they all had contacts with Iron-Fan Princess while they were in Flame Mountain. To put out the flames and pass through the Flame Mountain, they were fighting Princess to force her to  lend the magic Iron-Fan.)

Invented new generation computer based on Tài-YÓ Crystal his great grandpa left him, disappeared in the night of Los Angeles BIG earthquake because Iron-Fan Princess asked him to deliver a baby to the father. Actually, His name Zhe-Sheng, meaning "Knowing Life".

Monkey King is an ancient super hero in the most famous novel  [West Journey], much like Superman is in the American culture. Monkey King's legacy has been around for over a thousand years, (1,300 years, to be exact.) yet, Superman has only been around for 80 years.

Shin Sun is the human version of Monkey King trapped in a human body.  Monkey King is the superhero version of Shin Sun with monkey face. But Monkey King can never figure it out, Why is this Dr.Sun looks so familiarly? Iron-Fan Princess has twin with who?! All like dreams resemble imaginary?

He has not yet vigilant to the fatal crisis, after leaving Flame Mountain, they already encountered a most weird spirit, its charm has excel in possible to manipulate other people's dreamland.

Green Fish realized that the dream attacks may not necessarily be successful, therefore he must let Monkey King dream to extricate himself with difficulty, watching' manipulating and waiting for the moment of the fatal strike!

The whole story is actually a superhero's dream.

Nothing really happened, the whole story took place in Monkey King's dream, and Green Fish ( the Mackerel Spirit) was manipulating it, to kill the monkey when he was most diabolized and paralyzed by the dream.

Monkey King remembered how he was jumping in Iron-Fan Princess's stomach, so he is dying to see who is the father? What will happen to his West Journey teammates? Yet, he doesn't know that he is dreaming, he is dying! Because Green Fish is manipulating and waiting aside!

 Musa Ox, Iron-Fan Princess, Wife of Ox King, drank tea of Monkey King changed into a insect in her tea cup to force her to give Iron-Fan so he can put down the flame of Mountain Flame, had twins  after West Journey team left Flame Mountain.

She reincarnation in the corpse. manages to call Dr.Sun's friends to go to Deep Wide Gold Mine to find more Tài-Yǐ crystal. She tells the friends that HE is Dr. Sun's twin brother, Hermit Sun. His name, Džng4-SÓ3 meaning "destined died".

Released since year 700, [West Journey] become most famous fiction in world, that Monk Xúan-Zhùang devoted his life to recede West region to collect scriptures, and Monkey King' Pigsy' Friar Sand and White Dragon HORSE had to escort him for the mission.  ĎFlame Mountainí is the most popular chapter in fiction, that West Journey had to fight Iron-Fan Princess and Ox-King to go pass the Flame Mountain.
Ox King, his madly turn over and hoof beat made earthquake, he was mad because his wife Iron-Fan Princess had twins with Monkey King. Our fiction {American West Journey} movie 1 starting and movie 3 ending at earthquakes, but we never see Ox King appearing in our fiction. (We shall keep Ox King in mind, use this character whenever we need him to develop the story. In old time story of [West Journey] over 1,500 years, Ox King and Monkey King used to be good friends hooked up in buddy brotherhood.)
So, everything happens in Monkey King's dream! And he doesn't know that he is dreaming from the beginning, neither he knows that a fish is waiting to kill him aside.

To enjoy the story, U need to learn how to dream like a superhero. To edit and change the story, U need to manipulate a superhero's dream like a super-spirit.

So to be dreaming together with Monkey King, U are going to see that White Dragon flying in Hollywood' Pigsy dancing in Las Vegas, Friar Sand paint the White House black, Monk Xķan-Zhýang got 2 wives and fireworks in his wedding night, U can edit more fancy and adventurous American dreams to each West Journey teammate (Their exciting and dangerous situations will make Monkey King fail to see that he is actually the only one about to get killed any instant), as long as they will get together in the final chapter to rescue the Monkey Prince.
