    What if I cast Wallace Chung as Lau Gan?

    OMG! PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T DO THAT! I don't want my Wallace to be casted as some eunuch! If you make him a eunuch, I'll be so horrified that I might not be able to continue reading the story, no matter how superb the story is. But casting Wallace Chung as a character in your story will guarantee that I will read it, though. Just don't make him a eunuch. He can evil or good, but just not a eunuch. I love Wallace so much that if you give him a good, interesting character, you'll win yourself a guaranteed loyal reader. In fact, I won't even wait until I'm free in the winter to start reading again.

    Unless you write Wallace Chung in as an interesting, hot, attractive, manly character (but not eunuch and not transvestite!), I will not resume reading until winter!

    Very funny. I meant winter in California. It's either add Wallace Chung into your story as a fabulous, hot, manly character or no comments on the story until winter in California!

    Default Book One: The Fist Of Domination (權傾天下)

    Chapter Sixteen:

    Cast of Appearing Characters

    Yeung Ming Hung Kenneth Ma Kwok Ming
    Yiu So Sum Tavia Yeung Yi
    Cheung Wan Sheung Nancy Wu Ding Yan



    Yeung Ming Hung leapt swiftly off the tree branch and landed before Cheung Wan Sheung who punched him in the shoulder and scolded, You want to scare me to death by popping out like this in the middle of the night! To her surprise, he crouched down with pain and her knuckles were covered in red blood. It was the exact place where the arrow had pierced him.

    You all right? she cried out in concern, bending down to him, I didnt know you were injured!

    Yeung Ming Hung quickly got up, It is just a minor injury. I will be alright! Quickly take me to So Sum! I have a very mission on hand that I must brief you about! Let us go before anyone sees us! And Cheung Wan Sheung quickly led him back to the maid quarters.

    Yiu So Sum was mending clothes when the doors suddenly burst open. Big Brother! she exclaimed, and her trained eye quickly noticed his bleeding wound. What happened to your shoulder? Sit down and let me take a look at it!

    Yeung Ming Hung sat down and answered cheekily, Some crazy woman punched me!

    Cheung Wan Sheung scowled at him from behind as she secured the doors. He grimaced to hold in the pain as Yiu So Sum peeled off the soaked bandages.

    Yiu So Sum frowned at him as she saw the wound. How many times do I have to tell you that a deep wound like this arrow injury will not stop bleeding by itself? You must apply some clotting ointment to seal the wound before bandaging or you will slowly bleed to death! And she quickly ran to her bed to get some ointment.

    Cheung Wan Sheung poured him some hot tea, Well, you know how thick in the head he is! You are lucky that he can remember his own name!

    Ha! Ha! Very funny! teased Yeung Ming Hung, At least I dont sleepwalk and end up waking up the whole army barracks by snoring on the roof! They had not met for a whole year and these childhood friends missed teasing each other.

    Quiet both of you! scolded Yiu So Sum, returning with the ointment, Its not like we are kids anymore! And if anyone hears that we brought a man into the Enclosed Palace, all our efforts will have gone to waste!

    Maybe we should dress him up a maid! taunted Cheung Wan Sheung, Or dress him up as a little eunuch! And suddenly, slamming her hand on the table so hard that the other two jumped up in fright, she continued, And then we can castrate him for real!

    Cheung Wan Sheung stuck her tongue out as Yeung Ming Hung but quickly retracted it back into her mouth when she met You So Sums disapproving glare, and sat down beside them. As she was applying the thick brown ointment, Yiu So Sum asked, So what brings you to the Imperial Palace? Is Godfather fine? Has he further instructions for us?

    Yeung Ming Hung sighed, Uncle is fine! But I am here on my own accord to accomplish a terrible mission!, and he briefed the girls about the whole story. But I was one step too late and the roster has already entered the Forbidden City! I am here to destroy it before Lau Gan can present it to the Emperor! The survival of our empire depends on it! Do you know where these official documents are kept?

    Yiu So Sum bit her lower lip to suppress her hatred as she wrapped the bandages around his shoulder. That dreaded eunuch! He has long been looking for an excuse to get rid of the Yeung Family Army! He is currently away from the Imperial Palace and I have not heard anything about his return. He keeps all his pending documents in his private study which is always heavily guarded. I tried going there a few nights ago but was deterred by the guards.

    Yeung Ming Hung stood up immediately and said, Then I must go there immediately! Since that old eunuch is not there, it would be much easier to act now than when he comes back!

    Sit back down, you bird-brain! cried Cheung Wan Sheung jabbing him it the back with the tip of a thin brush, Are you familiar with the Imperial Palace and the patrol routes? Dont get yourself caught then lead them back to us! Besides, our Physician Yiu hasnt permitted her patient to leave yet!

    Wan Sheung is right! agreed Yiu So Sum, You only just arrived and will easily get caught by the guards while escaping! If it were easy getting into the study, I would have gone in a long time ago and found the evidence I need to redress my fathers so-called crimes.

    Yeung Ming Hung looked at Yiu So Sum with concern. After so many months in the Forbidden City, have you found any evidence concerning your father yet?

    No. said Yiu So Sum quietly, But the evidence that I am after can only be in two places - either in Lau Gans private study or the Royal Medicinal Department. Wan Sheung and I stole into the department to study all the medical history concerning Emperor Shing Fa but to no avail his symptoms seem inconsistent and the documents regarding the herbs used seem to be forged. I am hoping that Lau Gans private study can give me the answers I am seeking.

    Yeung Ming Hung seemed deep in thought. Then in a low voice, he said, Sorry to tell you this, So Sum, but if I were Lau Gan and hatched such an intricate and wicked scheme to poison the previous emperor, then I would not leave traces of paperwork behind. Have you thought about the low probability that you can actually find anything to prove the conspiracy?

    Yiu So Sum gazed at her knees as reality hit her. I know my efforts may be futile. But I still have to try. I cant let my father die with the stain of misdiagnosis upon his grave. Even if there is only one thousandth of a chance, I will still take it! Cheung Wan Sheung and Yeung Ming Hung stayed silent. Both knew of how the big the impact the death of her father had on her. She was very close to her father. In fact, she also nearly lost the will to live when he passed away. But she survived but she never forgot the injustice of his sentence.

    You So Sum packed up her medicinal kit. Then she said calmly, Godfather gave me my second life. No matter how much I want vengeance for my father, I will always remember Godfathers mission for me to come here and keep an eye on Lau Gan and gather evidence of his crimes. Dont worry about me. I know what I have to do!

    Yeung Ming Hung quickly changed the topic. So... er you have any information about Lau Gans crimes yet? What have you found out about him?

    Nothing so far! stated Cheung Wan Sheung as she dawdled on a piece of paper with her brush. Weve been confined to the Enclosed Palace so far and only see loads and loads of beautiful women. Weve seen the Emperor heaps of times but havent caught a glimpse of that traitor, Lau Gan yet! Only know that he is an old eunuch and likes to either go to Imperial Court or hide in his study under heavy guard. Dont even know if he is fat or ugly!

    Yeung Ming Hung joked, Are we talking about you now? and Cheung Wan Sheung threw her brush at him.

    Yiu So Sum interrupted them with a stern stare. Stop it! Let us rest for tonight and we will plan to infiltrate that study another time! With all three of us in action, there will definitely be a higher chance of succeeding! No more talking! Get to bed now! She had always been the authoritative one in the pack of four since childhood.

    Well, he can sleep in your side of the room! Cheung Wan Sheung yawned loudly and stretched her arms out, Im going to bed now.

    Yeung Ming Hung raised an eyebrow. Do you still like to kick people when you sleepwalk? Maybe I should have brought my armour with me! Dont want to wake up battered and bruised in the morning! Yiu So Sum ignored them and set up a soft surface on the floor for him to sleep on.

    Just your luck that our dear So Sum is the daughter of the famous Head Royal Physician Yiu and has inherited her fathers healing gift! I can kick you all I want but you wont die when she is around! And saying so, she chucked at him a piece of paper still wet with ink. Memorize that by tomorrow night or no rice for you!

    Yeung Ming Hung held it up against the candlelight; it was a brief map of the Imperial Palace and the way to Lau Gans private study. It was dotted with the paths that the guards would take and shortcuts back to the maids quarters. He called out quietly, Hey! Wan Sheung! I never knew you could write!

    Go to sleep! cried Cheung Wan Sheung, and she threw a cup over the candle and the room went dark.

    A light-hearted chapter just before the drama begins. I have always appreciated platonic relaionships between males and females. All until next time.

    That's a lie . I read Legendary Book years ago when Mel first started writing the story. Mel I can't believe you would shamelessly lie at my expense just to entice charbydis to add your favorite man into her story. Tsk tsk, naughty girl. But I have to say, a conduct that SCN would highly approve of

    Yea...I lied... But I only lied because I wanted to read a good fanfic with Wallace Chung in it, penned by a good author. Is that so wrong of me? I mean, I can't find any Wallace Chung fanfics out there, at least not in English!


    charbydis - There's nothing wrong with Kenneth Ma. I like the guy very much. But when I think of Kenneth, I think of a nice, sunny day at the beach with a bunch of kids building sand castles in the background. When I think of Wallace Chung, I think of a dark balmy night on a beach in some exotic locale with lots of smoldering kisses and skinny dipping. You see the difference? I bet tweety would agree. Wouldn't you, tweety?

    Tweety's right. The weather in CA right now is absolutely gorgeous. It's beach time and bikini time! Plus, I have vacation time coming up in winter, so I would have more free time to read. Right now, the truth is I'm simply too busy.

    OK. Since lack of Kenneth fans here ( ), more scenes for him as it is.

    I'm telling you charbydis... If you add Wallace Chung in as a hot and sexy villain, you'll earn yourself two very loyal readers (tweety and me).

    Kenneth's cool. You can give him more scenes, if you wish. However, I'm still sitting around waiting for Wallace Chung to pop up in your story...
