I have recently finished reading Legend of condor heroes and felt that while it is a good story, there is not much closure. The story end with Guo Jing and Huang Rong heading back to Mongolia after the death of Genghis Khan. I felt that after Guo Jing and Huang Rong have waited so long and went through so much to be with each other, there should be more closure where the lovers are concerned. When Return to Condor Heroes starts, 10 years have passed and the focus is no longer on them.
As such I have wrote a couple of fan fiction after the ending. There are a total of 7 chapters which will end with the birth of Guo Fu.
Chapter 1 - A New Life at Peach Blossom Island
Guo Jing and Huang Rong left Mongolia after the death of Genghis Khan. 2 weeks later, in a boat back to the Peach Blossom Island, Huang Rong lies in Guo Jing’s arms, her head nestled in the crook of his neck, contented in the knowledge that she would be married to her “Jing Ke Ke” in a few days. In fact her father had already sent news via their white condors that her Sifu, Hung Chit Kung had arrived on the Island for their wedding. Huang Rong has been kept busy this past 2 days with the thoughts of what to cook for her Sifu on her wedding day. Not that she will be doing the cooking but rather the cooking will the done by the deft mutes on the island, she will supervise, but there also must be the meat “mantou” that Jing Ke Ke likes on the menu…. She thought with an impish smile. She turned her head from the crook of Guo Jing’s neck and was just about to tease him on his favourite dull food, when she noticed the kink on his brow, a sure indication that he is distressed about something.
Guo Jing’s heart ached when he remembered the last few hours, which he spent with Temujin, the man who played the role of “father” throughout his childhood years.
Huang Rong is aware of Guo Jing’s tendency to brood whenever there is something that he is unhappy about and decided to push him out from the doldrums. “Jing ke ke, what are you thinking?” “Hua Zhen?” She teases with a twinkle in her eyes. At one time, she had been jealous of the Princess, but not anymore as Guo Jing had proved to her once and again that she, Huang Rong has always been, and always will be the keeper of his heart.
“Rong Er…., you know you are the only girl in my heart” Guo Jing said tenderly when he realised that Huang Rong is not angry. “I was just thinking of my last conversation with Ta Han…. Although he is Mongol and I am Sung, he was still one the man I most respected in my heart. I have never known my father and he is the closest I have to a father……”. Guo Jing explained sadly to Huang Rong. “Rong Er, do you think Ta Sung will be safe now that Ta Han is dead?” Guo Jing further asked.
Huang Rong settled back into her favourite position in Guo Jing arms and ponders the question before answering. Guo Jing reflectively hugs her closer to him, as the wind blowing from the sea is getting cold. “Em…. I think we would have at least a few years of peace…” Huang Rong replied thoughtfully. “Why a few years” Guo Jing asked with a confused look. “I saw the looks that Gengkhis Khan’s eldest and second sons were giving each other at the funeral and I would safely say that Mongols will have their hand tied with civil wars soon to bother with Sung.” Huang Rong said thoughtfully.
Guo Jing’s response to Huang Rong’s statement is just to hug her tighter. Guo Jing believes his Rong Er, for this total trust is the basis of their relationship. However, although he is sad knowing that Genghis Khan’s sons will be fighting over the throne but he secretly hopes that it will be a prolong one so that the Sung people will have more time of peace. The two lovers just hugs and stare out to the sea for a long time.
After a while, Huang Rong asked blushingly “Jing Ke Ke, are you excited?” “Uh… Huh…, Rong Er, we are finally able to be together” Guo Jing smiles, kiss the top of her head and replied as he knows that she is referring to their impending wedding.
“Although, how I wish my mother and my five Sifu could lived to attend our wedding” Guo Jing further said, a shadow of sorrow passed over his face. “Jing Ke Ke, don’t be sad, our loved ones never really leaves us, they are always with us in memories, my dad speak to my mum all the time.” Huang Rong tried to console Guo Jing.
Guo Jing looks deep into Huang Rong’s eyes. He thought of all the things that had happened to him and Huang Rong in the short space of two and a half years. Some like the death of his mother and Sifus are painful but some he has got to be grateful for…. God has been kind, he has given Rong Er back to him. He can still remember and pain and panic he felt at Hua Shan when Rong Er wanted to pretend she had never known him at all, to pretend that their love never existed. Luckily, she forgave him in the end and now they will be married in a few days. Guo Jing looked down at the young woman in his arms, his soulmate…. and whispers “Rong Er, as long as I have you by my side, I am contented.”
The two lovers snuggled up together and sailed back to Peach Blossom Island to start their new life together.
