His foot pedaled straw sandal, clothes stacked in his waist's small package, his left hand took the scriptures, the right hand was holding whisks, he wiped the scripture then put it into the book box he carried on his back.

There was a dome-shaped umbrella above the book box, a small oil lamp hanging before the umbrella.

He was toting baskets and Gerry each, were packed in rolls packed with scripture.

The basket Gerry was higher than the heads of Xúan-Zhùang a foot or so, overlying a bamboo coolie hat, there was an oil lamp at one end of the bamboo hat , oil lamp hanging straight in front of Xúan-Zhùang.

By this oil lamp, Xúan-Zhùang passed around the hundreds of countries, but this moment, the luminous lights around four corners made the oil lamp appear weak humble. he blow off the lamps.

Pedestrians came to the corner and stopped down to gather around. Xúan-Zhùang went through the crowd, rear foot followed a forefoot to across the street. 

Xúan-Zhùang caught sight of his reflection in a glass building as he walked along the street.  He never see such a high building with all over glass. He turn around to stop, the whole street, in fact, the whole sky are all of high glass building. He noticed that he was lost in the jungle of mansions and streets.

And the very last moment he was still walking backwards with his fellowship leading and walking forwards ahead. Surrounding by Monkey King' Pigsy and Friar Sand, he always wanted to take a good look when they were leaving a great scenery. He enjoyed moving backwards, riding on White Dragon Horse or walking by foot, while his fellowship surrounding and moving forwards.

 

They were leaving Flame Mountain and immediately after that, passing through a thick crystal mirror?!

 

 Xúan-Zhùang appeared confused and eventually amazed as he contemplated the city before him in all its grandeur. Buildings seemed to be spinning. Decorative lights were everywhere; in the trees and overhead. Flowers lined the boulevard. There were statues that rotated. There were fountains of water flowing from giant stone blocks and walls. Xúan-Zhùang saw pictures of people appearing so real they might be living, except they didn't move.

 

 He had never seen the building so tall and huge. All kinds of people were within the city: Men with short hair and men with long hair, women with long hair and women with short hair. And everybody's pants fit so well. There were people playing musical instruments. Children flew by him gliding along on pieces of wood, or shell, or bone, he couldn't tell what these platforms were made out of that each had wheels mounted underneath.

 

There were lots of written words, such as the spelling of "Chicago" on the walls and signs, but this was not in the language he had learned and prepared for.  Xúan-Zhùang believed that he was close to Sukhavati, the Western Paradise. He couldn't even see the tops of the taller buildings from where he stood. Bright electrical signs changed colors before his eyes. He saw strange looking beasts with glowing eyes, all heading in the same direction on one side of the street and in the opposite direction on the other. They made loud noises and belched smoke.  Xúan-Zhùang saw a crowd gathering on the sidewalk. He stopped to stare at what they were staring at, a strange-looking panel. Light, music, and odd sounds were coming from it. There appeared to be people and other things trapped inside, yet the panel had no depth.

 

So this was the Sukhavati, the Western Paradise, thought Xúan-Zhùang.  It was truly full of amazements. He was overcome by the excitement of being there. He started to greet people in Sanskrit: "Namaskar," he said graciously and bowed with his hands over his heart. Nobody stopped to acknowledge his salutation.

 

Xúan-Zhùang kept on greeting. His elbow bumped a passerby.

The guy stopped. Smiling broadly, Xúan-Zhùang said "Main maafi chahti hoon."

 

The guy started to walk away "Sorry, don't speak Lamaism," he said.

A lady stopped to address him: "Good afternoon, Shaman."

 

"Namaskar." Xúan-Zhùang pointed to himself. "Mera nam kya hai," he said. The lady smiled back, gave him a dollar and left.

Xúan-Zhùang was not discouraged. He persisted until people began to push him away.

 

"Get lost, Shanboo" said one.

 

"Outta my face," said another.

 

Xúan-Zhùang was trying to communicate in Hindi's Sanskrit, the language he had learned for the mission, he volunteered himself to come here to learn and collect the scriptures, and he would learn it and take them home to translate it to his country. Unfortunately nobody on the street could understand him. Wrong place, also, wrong time.

 

Having no success, Xúan-Zhùang decided to move to a different location. He started across the street, but he never noticed that there were light signals on each street, there were red' yellow' and green color lights kept changing and flashing all the time.

 

A car almost hit him. It started honking.

Emily Greens , the blond teenager girl, rescues him out.
 

Totally foreigner terribly lost. Emily took Xúan-Zhùang to McDonald, she found out Xúan-Zhùang is vegetarian. She taught Xúan-Zhùang to say 'I do' when they are ordering the burger and salad.

Xúan-Zhùang tried to explain to Emily about his West Journey Mission. He asked Emily to take him to the tallest building to collect the scripture, which happens to be Zsolt Zone Bank's mansion. Emily misunderstood and took him as a foreign exchange student, lost way to his university.

Emily took Xúan-Zhùang to Avalon's tree birthday party.

Tree birthday party Avalon is in a protest and lives with the tree, not to let Vampires business Zsolt Zone Bank who bought the land and want to cut the big old green tree. Basket ball team and his classmates have his birthday party around the tree.

Police come. To keep Avalon's protest going, Emily announce that she will get married under the tree.

Next day, Xúan-Zhùang says 'I do" after Emily said so. He doesn't know it's his wedding.

(goto Friar Sand's chapter06: After Flowing Sands River)

Lilly and Peaches sneaked in as a naughty acts, had all their fun to  the newly wedded.

Emily Greens got problems with her father who got Veronica , her high school sweetheart's sister pregnant, then her mom got pregnant with Cliff , Emily 's sweetheart. They are all in Basket  ball team, her father own sport store and sponsor the team.

She promised herself that she will marry to a perfect husband who totally listen to her in her 18 years birthday.
Escape to Chinatown Leggy Centipede appears to catch Xúan-Zhùang, Green Knight came to rescue.

Xúan-Zhùang found out that Green Knight had exactly Avalon's face, Xúan-Zhùang was horrified, he tried to ask if Avalon was died.

Surprisingly, Green Knight could understand him: "Vampire sucked my blood and snatch my body, tried to make me one of them, but the tree saved my soul, I'm one of Green Knight now."

"What was that humongous Leggy Centipede about? She was all over me and screaming like a mad woman! that me and my wife shall die, and my cock ate her family?"

"She want to kill you, also your wife. Your cock ate her family."

"I have no wife, I'm a monk."

"You have two now."

"What?"

"When you were married, your wife's trousseau, a big cock found her family and ate them all, Vampire Zsolt saved her with Ti-Y crystal, she learn and become immortals."

Now Xúan-Zhùang remembered his marriage.

"But I was only 12, that's long time ago."

"1,400 years ago."

"What?!"

"Never mind, you will figure it out later."

"It's a big cock, I have no control of it."

"Sure, blame it to your cock, all men do."

"What?"

Green Knight took Xúan-Zhùang to escape from Leggy Centipede。

“Leggy Centipede will always come to kill you when u r with family, so watch out when u find your family."

"What?"

"Don't have sex" Green Knight disappeared when  Xúan-Zhùang finally saw a couple of Asian face, he finally hear somebody speaking Chinese, he followed them to subway and followed them to Chinatown.

The first time riding subway, Xúan-Zhùang remember that how he and   Xiang-Zhen went to watch the Emperor Suí's Flower Boat cruise down south.

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, Chéng-Hui  (Xúan-Zhùang was his monk name) had married 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.)

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 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. 

Jian-Liú and Xiang-Zhen Xúan-Zhùang heard a most familiar voice calling his child pet name:" Jian-Liú" (meaning river flowing).

Only one woman knows this name.

Fatal exit

In Chinatown, there have Temple, there have church. There was sign of "I'm the True, I'm the Way. " Under the sign, Xúan-Zhùang met Xiang-Zhen. His fiancée before the West Journey Mission.

Monkey King' White Dragon' Friar Sand are saving Monkey baby from hell.

Monkey King saw Xúang-Zhùang had 2 wives grabbing him in Future gear Whirl, got very confused about the situation.

Monkey King was very confusing, he saw the signs on church become Dr.Sun yelling back: "the only way out is to learn the TRUE. It will get you killed only when you learn the truth."
