    Post Round Robin #2: Secret of the Sword

    It was late at night. The wind gust ferociously. In the street of Luo Yang city, not a soul can be found. Everyone has fallen asleep, snoozing in their comfortable bed. Even the night-watchers seem to forget their duty today.

    Suddenly the wind blow harder, propeling the cloud away from the moon. Under the pale moonlight, two persons are standing near the city gate.

    “WuTang, you actually show up…” the figure in black robe whispered silently.

    “Floo, of course I show up. There’s nothing that can stop me from taking back what was belong to me,” WuTang grits his teeth. His eyes reddened from anger.

    “Not even if you have to fight the great WhiteKrane?”

    “Hmph, that devil! I don’t care how good his martial art is, and how bad mine is. As long as I have breath in my chest, I’ll fight to get my family’s heirloom back!”


    ===
    No pun intended to anyone. It’s just… It is night here, and I’m so tired after working a whole day. I visited our old forums and find a thread called Fanfic ala SPC. Then I thought, why not making one like that? Especially since Kilin is already very long and hinders some newcomers to participate.

    Sorry if I didn’t put ‘pretty words’ on the 1e posting, but… I’m really TIRED!!!

    OK, it is a round robin. So please feel free to post here. Just remember to use our own names here, so we can imagine we’re transferring to wuxia era.

    Cool

    how about naming myself 'Yellow Rose'? (not from texas by all means!)? Goofy seems not fit for someone in pugilistic world. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

    On the same night, at a large mansion in the same city, a scream pieced through the silent night. Shuffles of feet rushed to the noise, and all gasped with horror.

    On the floor in the middle of the room lay a lifeless body of the owner of the mansion. Sweet scent of a yellow rose on his chest invaded the room, but no one seemed to enjoy the aroma in full.

    "Yellow Rose struck again!" Someone exclaimed, and the widow wife fainted.

    High up on the rooftop, a female figure sat leisurely, bathing in the cool glow of moonlight. She touched a small flower in her hand delicately and smiled devilishly.

    "The hunt is just about to begin." As if having wings, she skipped among roofs and disappeared into the dark.

    "Yellow Rose!" said a voice of a young scholar. He wore a white robe, folding fan on his hand, and red leather boots.His name was Andrea. He was known as the 'White Robe Swordsman'. He's known as somewhat 'grey' since he's not a bad man but not a good man also.

    "You return again to Wulin world!" said the young man smiled. "How have you been Yellow Rose?"

    Back into the Floo's scene :

    "So, Floo, are you going to stop me ?" said WuTang "I thought we were friends"
    Floo answered "I know we were friends since childhood, but then again, how can I fight my own se fu the Great WhiteKrane ? She ordered me to kill you, you know..."

    Slowly Floo raises her sword.......

    (to be continued.....is she going to kill me after all ? )

    I never thought it could be THAT funny!!!!

    Back to the hard task... Should I kill WuTang?
    ======

    Slowly Floo lifted her sword. WuTang closed his eyes in deep surrender. Although he hates to think that, once he dies, his family heirloom will belongs to WhiteKrane forever, his heart hurts everytime he thinks about what will happen to Floo, a girl that he loves since his childhood, if WhiteKrane found out that she has set him free.

    Suddenly...
    "Floo, what are you doing?" As quick as a bat, a blue shadow approaches.

    "Goofy, you're still alive?" Floo cried.

    The blue shadow who turned out to be Floo and WuTang's childhood friend, Goofy, nodds.

    "It's good to see me again, heh?" Goofy smirked. "Or maybe that's not the case for you, Floo. You know how much I hate you!"

    =======
    Hmmm.... so where's Andrea? Come on, Andrea... Continue, stp...

    We can make Yellow and Goofy twins :P :P

    Cool

    <IMG SRC="smilies/sigh.gif" border="0"> if you insist on calling me goofy, I will let you do it (only you though, Floo...)

    it just didn't suit my elegant beautiful sexy stature <IMG SRC="smilies/blush.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> (cough cough)

    Yellow Rose twisted her shoulder a little to show her graceful stature before answering the handsome man in front.

    "Hmm, I am back to join in the game." She paused then smiled coyly at him. "But, I have no time to talk today." With silver-bell laughs, she cast her flower-shaped hairpin at him and somersaulted away.

    The White Robe Swordsman dodged the sharp point of the hairpin in time and reached out to grabbed it. He inspected the end of it minutely and found a trace of poison.

    He shook his head, but his eyes looked lingeringly after the slim figure.

    "Yellow Rose, you are still the same, venomous but beautiful..."

    "You return again to Wulin world!" said the young man smiled. "How have you been Yellow Rose?"

    "Huh none of your business, sissy scholar!" said Yellow Rose with angry voice. She hated Andrea so much since that man was a playboy. Two years ago Andrea gave her a necklace and said that the only girl he loved was Goofy, the Yellow Rose. But just soon as he met another girl, his heart turn easily. After that, Yellow Rose never trusted the 'White Robe Swordman' again.

    "Dear, you still can't forgive me don't you?" asked Andrea bitterly. "You see that my relationship with her was just a casual friendship. Look at me now...still single and waiting for you!"

    "Just tell me what you want!" said Yellow Rose grinned. She hated White Robe Swordsman, but didn't know how to hate him also.

    "I want you to help me to stop Floo kill Wutang tonight!" said Andrea with convincing voice.

    "What did you say just now?" asked Yellow Rose with suprised voice.

    Cool

    Yellow Rose came to stop on the tree and observed silently the scene between WuTang and Floo. Then she alit softly on the ground.

    "Floo, I have lots of things to talk out with you, but well..." She shrugged.

    "It is not so easy to find a female comrade nowadays. I have proposal for you. I need a partner to help me hunt for the secret, and I don't trust any man. They are shifty lot." She waited for the other's answer.

    your turn, floo... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

    Continued from Goofy's Story :

    "Hold up a minute !!" WuTang shouts.
    "Floo, look carefully ! Is it the true Yellow Rose ? Or is it her vicious twin ?"
    Be careful Floo, look out !!"
    WuTang fell down as he tries to save Floo when the false Yellow Rose stab him in the back..
    "WuTang !!!" Floo cried as WuTang fell in her arms.
    WuTang said slowly "Floo, even though you and I are friends for a long time..I just want to say something to you... "
    Just when WuTang tried to say his words, a shadow-like figure showed up and carried WuTang away from Floo's arms.The figure was so fast that even Floo and Goofy's lookalike couldn't see clearly.All they can see was the man was wearing a strange mask.

    Should Wutang's life ended here ?? Who is the man with the strange mask ?

    Cool

    Or was it a man? They could not clearly see the figure of the mysterious figure, only making out a black blur. Floo and the Yellow Rose look alike sped as fast as they could after them, but soon, the image of the two became smaller and smaller, and then soon, disappereared into the misty night air, leaving them with the cry of Wu Tang, "Floooooooooo..."

    The mists and clouds veiling the sky soon dispersed by a gush of cool breeze and revealed the soft, comfotable moonlight. The moonlight reflected upon a mirror set up outside a small ship, which then reflected onto a series of mirrors leadign to inside of the cabin, lighting the room up even brighter than it would have been with candles.

    "Floo!" sighed Wu Tang with despair as his final chance to speak out his final words, the words that had been lying in the depths of his heart for so long, to the woman he loved, Floo.

    He could feel his back becoming wetter each moment, and the wound becoming more numb as time went by. His captor threw his curelly onto the hard wooden bed, not even caring abotu his wound. His vison was slowly weakening, and hsi heart heaved with sadness. Not only the case with Floo, but also the eternal loss of his family heirloom. How could he face his ancestors when he arrived in the Yellow Springs?

    His captor did not say a word, but just stood still staring at him, still, with the strange mask on.

    Wu Tang looked wearily at the figure, and asked weakily, "Who are you? And what do you want?"

    "Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! The No Shadow In The Wind, Charbydis, greets you! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!" <IMG SRC="smilies/evillaugh.gif" border="0">

    No Shadow lifted a sabre ready to attack WuTang when a figure yelled,

    "Stop!"

    The voice came from a young lady who was known as Little Crystal Moon for she only fights on full moon and her Lightness kung-fu is known throughout WuLin. Crystal Moon went over to No Shadow and grabs the sabre out of him.

    "Si hing, what do you think you're doing? We can use him to lure in his friends," Crystal Moon said, "Sifu wants to see you about something."

    No Shadow thought for a moment when he nodded.

    "Hold on, today's the Moon festival, let's go out and see the parade. They say the Lions are performing their extreme Lion Dance today. Who knows, maybe I can also find someone to fight out there. My hands gets so itchy at this time of the month," Crystal Moon said as she pulls No Shadow in her direction. Together, they headed down the mountain.

    Shirley is not a good wuxia name, so I changed it to Crystal Moon.

    I am a bit confused on who I am myself, but it is rather fun. <IMG SRC="smilies/twirl.gif" border="0">

    Floo and the girl who called herself Yellow Rose were quarelling about the missing WuTang.

    Floo was yelling at the girl in yellow dress. "You intentionally distracted me and have your collegue kidnap him."

    The girl in yellow dress turned up her nose and retorted. "Hmm, he would have died in your hands anyway."

    Her words bled Floo's heart. While Floo was thinking of her lover's eyes and his last word, her name, the other walked away.

    There was no time to lose. She had to find WuTang before others. He was the only one who knew the secret of the sword.

    But before that, there was a personal matter that she needed to attend to. She stop at an isolated shack and went inside. There, a girl in rag crouching in one corner in pitiful state, but even then, her beauty shone through. Her face was exactly like the girl in yellow dress.

    Yellow Rose took a look at her twin sister and smiled cynically. "How are you today, Goofy. Just to let you know, I'm letting you go today for a bait. Nobody knows that I have twin, and you will do well to lure my enemies away while I am working."

    She fed Goofy a poisoned pill. "Be good, otherwise, I won't give you an antidote. Don't say too much, just let your angelic eyes do all the work. Men always fall for them. Ha-ha. Then, I move in and disillusion them all about you." She eyed at her twin sister jealously.

    "I don't understand why men always go for you instead of me. We are exactly alike, after all." She shrugged. "Anyway, you have no one left now. They are all disappointed that a demure girl with no kungfu like you can turn out a notorious thief like Yellow Rose."

    She laughed shrilly and released Goofy from the chains and pushed her roughly into the dark street.

    Then she sprinted to the forest, keeping an eye for WuTang.

    Cool

    Yellow Rose's twin ran fearfully in the dark alleys. She was cold and lost. Afraid of being caught again by her twin sister, she staggered on and bumped into No Shadow and Little Crystal Moon who were taking a walk leisurely on the street.

    They both exclaimed, "Yellow Rose". Then they took out their swords, ready to attack.

    The ragged girl shook her head feebly. "No, I'm not..." She wanted to tell the truth but recalled her sister's last words. 'Anyhow, she is still my twin although she hates me.'

    She turned around and ran away from the troubles, but Little Crystal Moon (Shirley) sped after her with the excellent light kungfu.

    How could a weak girl get away from this tigress on the hunt?

    In no time, her way was blocked. Without ado, Little Crystal Moon attacked the opponent. To her surprise, the other didn't even dodge. In truth, Yellow Rose's twin had thought that this was her last moment when someone interrupted them.

    Hey... who turned me into a soft-hearted man ?? <IMG SRC="smilies/angrystick.gif" border="0">
    Well.....there it goes ...

    WuTang woke up in the middle of the night.His wounds still hurts, but charbydis and Crystal Moon surely has put some potion on his wounds, so that it doesn't hurts that much again.

    Wutang wondered "Why are they all chasing me ? Are they after for my family heirloom ?"
    WuTang remember when he was a child, his father showed him a sword.. a strange sword, made of black and shiny stone.
    WuTang's father was a number one swordsman in his time, and no one can defeat him. But many fighter came and challenged him, so he has to hide so that they all can live peacefully. But their hideout was tracked by their enemies, and time was running out.
    WuTang father said to his son "WuTang... remember this. This is a powerful sword. One should be careful using this, this sword can bring peace but also can bring terror. The secret of the sword is told only in our family. I'll tell you the secret (.... the secret should be kept until the end of the story..)" When he finished saying that, suddenly a horde of fighters from all over the wulin world came from all over the place.
    There was a great fight, but WuTang Senior couldn't fight them all. Wutang senior said to his son "WuTang, I'll cover you. You run away as fast as you can. Don't forget to get the sword and learn the secret of the sword."
    "Fatherrr" WuTang cried and run as fast as he can (hey how can i be so sentimental.. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">)
    He never heard of his father again, but the last thing he knows is that the sword has been taken by the Great WhiteKrane.

    "Wutang...." suddenly a voice woke him up from his dream.
    Who could that be ?

    (to be continued)
