Chapter 8 – Letters from home – Part 7

“We have to find her so I take the south of the town while you take the north but look out as it is near the palace and after what I have gotten messages, it sounds like Gang Chen is living there this moment so be careful” Jun Chen said and Jun Chen replied “I will” and then they split up once more. Jun Chen stood for a moment, thinking “Please be safe, Ling Chang” and a female voice was heard but Jun Chen was too focused on his thought that he only heard the voice and not what it said. “Nice to see you again, Jun Chen” Mei Chen said again as she did not get any response and this time Jun Chen reacted “Ohh, It is you… I thought for a moment it was my sister who called for me” making Mei Chen both happy and annoyed but she managed to keep her smiling. “Who was the old man, you left me fore? Your lover” Mei Chen teased Jun Chen to get him to focus on her instead of Ling Chang. “My father, and please stop being so annoying, my sister is very important to me and my family so just leave if you won’t help” Jun Chen replied a bit angry and started to walk north and keeping his eyes anywhere else that at Mei Chen. Mei Chen could feel the annoyance turning into rage but she stopped it as she knew she had found two out of three so if she helped with finding the last one she could return to her brother at the palace. “Sorry I just tried to cheer you up, so will do my best help you” Mei Chen managed to say while walking after him to make sure she was not left behind. Jun Chen did not react at first but finally agree that she were following him and said “She has long black hair and brown eyes, I do not know what clothes she are wearing as neither me or my father watched her leave but her hight is about yours, if you see anything like that please point her out as I am not sure how she will react to strangers” Mei Chen just nodded quickly and started to look serious while she looked at the group of people walk past them.

”I am looking for my sister” He managed to say without looking too stupid. “Can I help?” It flew out of Mei Chen mouth and Jun Chen just nodded and they started to search the market while continuing the talk. “So what are you doing for a living?” Mei Chen asked gentle while they walked past the shops. “I am a mason, or rather I help my master by picking up stones for him, when not looking for my sister like today” Jun Chen replied laughing. “What about yourself?” He continued and Mei Chen looked at him and replied “Nothing much, just in town visiting my brother” and a silence followed as she were not used to have a small talk. They finished searching the market and Jun Chen had no choice to start looking on each of the streets for Ling Chang. “Sorry, I guess I have to do this alone” Ling Chang said and Mei Chen looked confused at first before she smiled and replied “Sure, we can meet again another day when you have found your sister” They left each other and Mei Chen looked as Jun Chen started to search the street for Ling Chang. Suddenly an old man appeared and she watched them speak before she smiling started to walk the other way. “Have you found her?” Hui Wen asked Jun Chen who just shocked his head gentle as he was in no mood in answering. “have you gotten any ideas of where she could have gone, I have search at the road to the mason, his gardens and at the blacksmith even at Fen’s home if she for some reason had found it and nowhere to be found” Hui Wen said tried to sound calm but his voice jumped up and down. Jun Chen looked at him and replied “No, but I have searched the entire market for her”

”My name is Jun Chen, what is your name?” Jun Chen asked without thinking on what Hui Wen had said as he was almost lost in the eyes of the stranger. The woman looked at him and smiled “My name is Mei Chen, how awesome we have the same last name” Mei Chen said quickly before pointing at in the sky. “Did you see the beautiful bird?” Mei Chen said, giving Jun Chen no chance to think about their names and instead he tried to catch a sight of the bird. “Where?” He said and followed the finger of Mei Chen. “There” Mei Chen said and pointed at it and Jun Chen finally caught it and tried to sound like it were amazing “Yes, what a beautiful bird” He said before turning his face against Mei Chen again without saying anything. Mei Chen turned her head against his and for a moment the whole world was silence as it waited for something to happen and without any warning kissed Mei Chen, Jun Chen who at first was so brainwashed that he just kissed back before a small voice in his head told him otherwise. He pulled his lips away from Mei Chen and said low while still surprised “Sorry, I don’t know you” trying to hide his feelings for Ling Chang but Mei Chen was no normal woman and she knew was going on so she started to teach him a bit. “Another girl in your life?” Mei Chen said teasing while Jun Chen got red in his face before replying “No, never” but his voice revealed it all and Mei Chen knew he were lying but still she changed subject as he had already told her all she needed to know about his life. “So what are you looking for a the market?” Mei Chen asked and Jun Chen tried to figure out something but he was still confused from the crash and kiss.

He continued his search but there were no sight of Ling Chang and he wanted to yell her name but he remembered that Hui Wen told him to keep a low profile. He continued to search between the shops and were not focused on where he went only that Ling Chang was not there. Bump, suddenly he was seeing stars doing the day and when he finally got back to normal he was also on the ground. “Look were you are going” he snapped but his voice broken when he noticed the beautiful woman he had ran into. “Sorry” he managed to say while handing out a hand to help the woman up. “Sorry I was focused on something else so did not see you” Jun Chen continued. “It is alright” The woman said and her raised her hand which made it seem like she was still a bit dizzy. “Up” Jun Chen said and pulled the woman up from the ground. “Too fast” The woman yelled a bit as she did not managed to stop and they both landed on the ground again with the woman on top of Jun Chen. Jun Chen could not stop himself from laughing and soon the woman was laughting too before they tried standing up once more and this time they both were able to stay standing.The woman looked at Jun Chen with her beautiful eyes, making Jun Chen almost forget what he was doing in the market.

“Do you know any reason why she have left us or where she has gone?” Hui Wen asked Jun Chen who was about to ask the same question to Hui Wen so he just shock his head and replied “No, but lets start in the market and at the mason as those are the only place she had been when not here” Hui Wen nodded in agreement. “Maybe we should spilt up so we can cover more ground faster” Hui Wen suggested and Jun Chen liked the idea even he was not used to walk in the town so soon they left the house alone and started searching in difference places of the town. “We meet here at evening if no matter if we have found her or not and keep a low profile” Hui Wen said as a last thing before they spilt up completely and Jun Chen was all alone between people in the town which already had become full and noisy. He started walking against the market as he knew that she had been there before and maybes was just out getting food like last time. His belly rumbled as in the argument about the letters from home, he and HUi Wen had forgotten all about eating breakfast and he got a bit annoyed by the thought that Hui Wen had hidden the letters from him, of course He and Ling Chang had become lovers and been training behinds Hui Wen’s back but it was not the same. His belly rumbled again as he walked past a stand selling seafood. “Can I, please have some octopus?” Jun Chen with a calm voice to clear out the annoyance in his mind. “Certainly, you man” The owner said and packed some for Jun Chen who quickly paid and continued searching for Ling Chang. The food helped him calm and focus on finding Ling Chang instead of arguing about the letters in his head.
