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. Theyll 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 weve got a plane to catch. We're going to Miami. Just think about the sunshine, the beaches.Remember where you put those tickets, baby? Well 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! Well 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.

She noticed Shin and Olivia. They were not her concern. Leggy Centipede 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.

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, Leggy Centipede 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 Leggy Centipede. 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! o ng."

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 Leggy Centipede 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 Leggy Centipede 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 Leggy Centipede was too giant and furious, they were not afraid at all.

But the Leggy Centipede 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 Leggy Centipede. 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 Leggy Centipede's throat.

Leggy Centipede 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 Leggy Centipede 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 05: To paint the White House brown

   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   

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.)

Dr Shin Sun: Great Grandson of Sam Sun railroad constructor. Invented new generation computer based on Tài-Y 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.

Hermit Sun, Iron-Fan Princess find Dr.Sun's body, find the Tài-Yǐ crystal, put the crystal in his palm to rebuild his crushed body. 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, Dng4-S3 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.  Flame Mountain 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 Xan-Zhang 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.

CampaignPrivateers of the Sea of Sorrows (Ravenloft)

Personality:  Olivia is an outspoken and opinionated girl, especially considering her size.  Small and petite physically, she is quick and rather strong for her size.  Incredibly strong willed, Olivia isn't afraid to speak her mind.  She's generally friendly and level-headed.

Significant Other:  Engaged to Ambrose Maurlias before she married to Shin Sun

Distinguishing Marks:  Olivia has pointed fey ears, like an elf.

Build Description:  Olivia is fit and small.  Skinny, but due to her small frame; she's not bony or anything.  She doesn't have a large chest (she's still growing!), but not "flat" chested, either.

Clothing Style:  She wears a mix of deer-leather and white cloth.  Since she believed she is pregnant, her shirt is empire-waisted and her leather skirt has tie-rings so it can be expanded.  Her skirt is actually more of a skort, having shorts underneath so she can still ride horses.  Her skirt is a leather halter-top with a white cloth bottom and white bell-sleeves.  She wears thigh-high boots.     

Previously as a Swanmay:  As they way of the Swanmay, her sect of Druids, she clothes herself completely in white if possible.  White leather pants and top is what she typically wears, and dons a magical cloak made of swan feathers.  Her weapon of choice is a white oak quaterstaff which bears a carving of a swimming swan on the top.    

Magical Abilities:  Being a Druid , Olivia has learned through mediation and respect for the natural world she can summon forth its powers.  She's especially apt at calling lightning and summoning elementals.  Like most druids, she can also heal wounds, though if possible she takes a more offensive position in combat. She can change her body at will, taking on forms of elements, though she's quite new at this and hasn't mastered it well yet.

Mermaid Form:  Upon entering Ravenloft, Olivia gained the ability to shape into a mermaid.  When she becomes submerged in water, or drenching wet through any other means, she becomes a mermaid: long, green-blue tail, spiney ear fins behind her ears, fins on her arms and at her waist.  Also grows scales over her back and on her cheeks.  Her marine scales are reptilian, not fishy (no slimy nastiness)

Swan Form:  Being a Swanmay, Olivia can turn into the shape of a swan at will.  However, the long she stays in Ravenloft the harder it becomes for her to do so.  NOTE:  Olivia is NO LONGER a swanmay, and can no longer shift to his form.

History:  Olivia was born to a woman known as only as Christina in the brothel La Chait Noir in Guillaume. Being that her mother mostly slept during the day, and was "working" at night, Angie was practically taking care of herself at a very young age. She helped around the brothel doing odd jobs for most of her younger years - doing laundry and cleaning mostly - in order to earn her keep under her mother's care. However, when Angie was 13, her mother became sick with syphilis. Christina held on as long as she good, but soon could no longer work. Angie begged not be kicked out of her residence at La Chait Noir and took on even more odd jobs to make the ends meet. The sickness quickly overtook her mother, and passed away about a year later. The brothel's matron, upon her mother's death, demanded that Olivia either take a job as a prostitute at her establishment, or leave.

Angie is appalled by the notion of selling her own body for food and roof. Having grown up in a brothel, and having seen her mother waste away from a horrible and disgusting disease, she vowed to never do that to herself. Of course, a girl with not so much as a dime to her name, no home, and not even a last name proved very difficult for Angie to maintain a steady job. Occasionally finding an odd job or two, she couldn't keep a job as waitress or housekeeper due to her homelessness and haggard, poor appearance.

 

Olivia scraped by by taking on any job she could find, and stealing whatever else she needed for food or a place to sleep. While the life a street-rat didn't really bother her from a morale standpoint (stealing a few coins from a wealthy fop who wouldn't even realize they were missing in order to eat didn't really striike Angie as "wrong"), it wasn't what she wanted to do for her life. She would spend hours of the day sitting on a rooftop in her port town and watch the ocean. She began to yearn for a life outside of Port-a-Mirielle. She couldn't afford a ticket on a boat... and even if she scrounged enough coin for one, what would she do once she was in a new city? Would there really be any more opportunities for a penniless girl in any city as there was here?

One day, while cutting through the dock area on her way to the inn she was squatting at, she overheard a dock worker explaining to his coworkers about being hired as a sailor. As she listened, an idea began to form in her head....

As she continued her way to the inn, she stopped in front of La Chait Noir and watched in disgust as the dirty, drunken men entered and exited. With even more determination, Angie ran straight to her room.
The next day, she took all the money she could scrounge and bought herself a nice dagger and a set of men's work clothes. That night, she took the knife to her hair, and cut up the bed sheets to bind her breasts. It was time to say goodbye to Port-a-Moreille forever.

Assuming the name "Chase," Angie filed for a job as sailor and dockworker with the Port Master. "Chase" worked in the dock's fish market for almost eight months when he finally was put up for a position on a merchant ship as a sailor.

However, her first voyage at sea landed Chase and a handful of her companions in an alternate dimension known (unbeknownst to them) as Ravenloft. 

 

Since Ravenloft:  Olivia has been struggling to retain her sense of self.  So much has happened to her, her self-identity has been swept away.  Relatively shortly after arriving on Ravenloft, she was asked to take up the oath of a dying sorority of Druids called the Swanmay.  She accepted, which forced herself to reveal her female identity to those she had been hiding it from.  However, as the months drag on Olivia has a harder and harder time shouldering the responsibility of the entire Swanmay clan on her back. 

 

Unlike Ambrose's driven desire to go back home, at first Olivia thought the adventure and power she gained in Ravenloft was better than the mundane life of the real world.  After all, she didn't have anything to go home to.  But she quickly took a liking to, and fell in love with, Ambrose.  Her drive to go home mostly rests on the hope that Ambrose will marry and settle down with her.  Though she's kept it secret so far, Olivia believes she might be carrying Ambrose's child...

Most recently in Ravenloft, the party has been trapped in the Shadow Rift, the home of the shadow fey.  Unbeknownst to Olivia, the Swanmay originated from fey, and circumstances beyond her control have began to change her into a shadow fey herself.  She now is sensitive to sunlight, cannot sleep, and her eyes will change colors fluidly.

Needless to say, Olivia's original optimism about the Realm has completely vanished.  She has seen how evil and corrupt the land is, and fears the land may be corrupting herself and her possible unborn baby.  She's very determined to leave this place, and try to rediscover her own self-indentity.

Betrayal of the Swan (Olivia loses her Swanmay abilities)

Starting shortly after she came to the Shadow Rift, Olivia began to have nightmares. They started out vague… all she could remember were shadows, a voice speaking to her.

After her transformation into a Shadow Fey, the visions became more real, more demanding. The party was currently on a quest from Queen Mauve to retrieve regalia of magical armor scattered about the land that, if brought together, acted as a key to unlock an evil creature known as Gwideon. Queen Mauve was in a race to find the regalia and hide it away for eternity. Her brother, Lot, was trying to collect it all because he felt he had an army strong enough to defeat Gwideon forever.

However, Olivia's dreams began to talk to her and manipulate her. Gwideon, who was the creator of all the Shadow Fey, including the Swanmay, was able to take Olivia under his complete control. He stole away her heart and replaced it with Shadow-stuff. He convinced her that if she brought the completed regalia to him at the Obsidian Gate, it would send Amrbose and her directly home.

Olivia's personally became severely affected. She became driven to find the entire amour. She became hostile, possessive, and antagonistic. She fought several times with Zita, and wouldn't have stopped if the rest of the party hadn't stopped her. The party spent months gathering the regalia until only the sword, dagger, and boots were left. Unfortunately, they were in the possession of Lot himself. Lot, King of the Unselee Fey, was heavily guarded and just as determined to get all the armor as his sister Mauve.

Completely obsessed about getting the armor and completing the set, Olivia hatched the plan to seduce Lot and have a new friend, Deadrick, steal the armor while Olivia distracted him with sins of the flesh. Ambrose was understandably NOT okay with this plan, but no other plan of attack seemed feasible.

Guised as a Nymph, Olivia tempted Lot with information about the mysterious thieves who were ravaging his land stealing the armor. Once alone, Olivia finally got Lot to disrobe his dagger and boots, but, even during lovemaking, refused to remove the sword from his side. Forced to steal it away in the climax of Lots…distraction, Deadrick used Armon's staff to teleport Olivia and himself back to safety.

Naked and smelling of Lot and sex, Ambrose had a hard time looking Olivia in the eye for the rest of the night. That night, they quarreled, Olivia angry at Ambrose for not understanding that she only did it for him.

"Aren't you upset at becoming what you tried so hard no to become?"

The words resounded in Olivia's head. Ambrose just called her a common whore. Angry, she stormed out, waiting until late in the evening to fulfill her plan.

Once everyone was asleep, Olivia managed to sneak into Queen's vault and don the regalia, sneak out of the castle, and head to the Obsidian Gate.

It wasn't long before the rest of the party was notified. Determined to get to Olivia before Queen Mauve's guards did, Ambrose led Zita, Armon, and Deadrick in a hot pursuit after her.

But by the time they found here, they were a hair too late. Olivia has opened the gate, and summoned forth Gwideon. Gwideon was a huge, black, shadowy tentacle monster. He placed the crown on Olivia's head, completing the regalia and allowing him to come forth. He also restored Olivia's heart (and alignment).

Ambrose rushed forth, knocking the crown from her head. No sooner had he done this, three black tentacles reached out and took hold of him, rending the werewolf into three distinct pieces right in front of Olivia's eyes. Horrified, Olivia rushed for the crown and threw if back into the gate. Knowing Gwideon couldn't fully emerge from the gate without the full regalia, she tried to run away. Gwideon took hold of her magical feather cloak, and it ripped away as the feathered blackened. As the cloak ripped away, Olivia felt her Swanmay powers melt away. Turning to air and retreating farther than Gwideon could reach, Olivia forced Gwideon back into the gate.

Olivia's heart of restored, but only in time to realize she had almost single-handedly brought destruction to the entire race of Shadow Fey. And Ambrose… Ambrose was dead because of her. As she sat there sobbing, she pulled the dagger from the regalia and stared at it considering. She was about to take her own life, but stopped as she placed a shaking hand over her belly. If she was carrying Ambrose's child, it would be all that was left of him…
