Chapter 8 – Letters from home Old

Ling Chang opened her eyes with a set and before she had been awake long enough to think a single thought, she were already at her door with the sword pulled and ready to strike because of the yelling and noise coming outside. She slowly opened the door and as she finally managed to peak out, she noticed that it was just Jun Chen and Hui Wen who was yelling at each other near their rooms and the yelling was so high it was just noise in Ling Chang’s ears so she went back to her bed and place the sword before getting dressed while watching the sun raising. “I wonder what they are yelling about this early in the morning” She asked her parents when it were time to pray before it hit her, she had been naked in plain sight of Jun Chen so whatever they were yelling about at this hour it sure was important. She returning to her own silence which made the world feel like two and it scared her a bit that they were able to be so angry. As she decide to walk outside her room to get some breakfast the yelling had moved to her door and she had suddenly arrived in the middle of the fight between Jun Chen and Hui Wen who were already very angry at each other. “WHY DID YOU HIDE IT FROM ME” Jun Chen yells loudly, not noticing that Ling Chang has awaken and is right in the middle of it. “I HAVE MY REASONS” Hui Wen yells back leaving Ling Chang almost deaf for a moment.

“Why are you yelling?” Ling Chang tried to say after getting her hearing back but the two men was not focused at her at all like they were blinded by rage and continued yelling at each other making Ling Chang leave the screen and try to block the sounds instead. “WHAT REASONS COULD BE BETTER THAN TELLING ME THE TRUTH” Jun Chen yelled while Hui Wen just look at him trying to control his anger, but yelled back “YOU WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND”. Ling Chang started to eat her breakfast while her mind started to get full of ideas of what the reason behind their argument and slowly she got more and more worried that she had done something. Suddenly she thought of her training that she and Jun Chen had been doing every night, maybe that was the reason for their yelling. The thought left her hand hanging for a moment and stopped her from eating more. Instead runs over to them again. “Please stop fighting” Ling Chang says with a calm voice while trying to get Jun Chen to focus on her instead of Hui Wen but he is lost in anger. “Please, Please, Please stop” Ling Chang tries again this time at Hui Wen but even he is tried to control his anger, he is still too far in it for her to get him back. Ling Chang is about to give up and with tears in her eyes she suddenly notice a white pidgin standing on a piece of paper not far from the fight, not caring much about it. Ling Chang dries her eyes and walk slowly against the pidgin so it won’t fly away but the pidgin does not care about her either so when she finally reach the bird it is still seating calmly. She takes the pidgin up and starts petting it to reach the paper underneath and it goes smoothly. Ling Chang looks at the paper and reads it “Emperor, travel, execution, Funanai” it says. At first Ling Chang does not understand the meaning of the words but as she close her eyes the words comes alive and starts traveling her somewhere, leaving the fighting behind and blocks all sounds of Jun Chen and Hui Wen yelling.

The whole world trueing dark and she wanted to scream but before she got the chance the light returned and she were back at the palace at the destroyed where she could see that emperor Jiang Chen was alive and that he was getting sent away by some younger man but before she could help she were transported to a horse and it was surrounded by soldiers and she screamed loudly as they all suddenly turned around and watched directly against her and she closed her eyes fearing what would happen next and soon she felt the wind and as she opened her eyes the moon was up and many stars danced in front of her and she was able to see the town Funanai below her as she noticed the mason’s garden and the market and before she was able to enjoy it, all went dark again and soon she heard the yelling return like they had never been gone in the first place. She knew why they were arguing now, the emperor was still alive and they have left him all alone in the palace. The knowledge made tears run down her check as she fell her body feeling up with mixed feelings as she were happy that they was not arguing about her but about Jun Chen’s father, the emperor· She tries to hold it in but the feelings of joy and sorrow make her scream loudly scaring the bird, making it fly away into the grey which slowly turns darker and darker. As her voice dies out, she turns around and her feelings becomes to rage and disappointment  when she notices that neither Jun Chen or Hui Wen have stopped their argument because of her screaming and she raise herself before turning her back against them and starts walking away from them and the house. At first she reach the place of her first night training and she tries to calm and focus herself on some training but the yelling is still inside her hearing range so she gives up and decide to walk further away and soon she is gone.

“I THOUGHT YOU WAS A GRAND MASTER, AND NOT A CHICKEN” Jun Chen yelled at Hui Wen who quickly replied without much thought. “I AM ONLY ONE HUMAN AND I CARE ABOUT YOU AND LING CHANG” He yelled back without thinking much about the words as they flew out of his mouth but Jun Chen lost his voice and almost silence said “Ling Chang?” As their argument and yelling had made him forgot all about her and they were even standing in front of her door, not minding her sleep or anything at all. Hui Wen was confused at first before he too was hit by a bad feeling about Ling Chang and focused on his actions and returned to a more normal voice as he started knocking on Ling Chang’s door. “Are you up, Ling Chang?” He tried to sound gentle but the yelled had made his voice hoarse and dry. No answer or sound was heard form inside her room, making Jun Chen push away Hui Wen and they were almost back at fighting again, but they managed to stay calm as Ling Chang was more important. “Ling Chang, we are done yelling so please open the door” Jun Chen said as clam and kind he could but no reaction came. Jun Chen lowered his voice so only Hui Wen was able to hear it. “Do you think we need to enter?” He said almost whispering and Hui Wen thought for a moment before nodding before he slowly took a grip in the handle and started to push it down. “We are entering now” Jun Chen said as the door slowly opened and they closed their eyes in case Ling Chang was naked. As the door was fully open and they still had not heard a sound from Ling Chang, they decided to opening their eyes and watched to their horror that the room was empty except for the sculpture, her sword and some of her cloches. They looked at each other in despair before they quickly ran out of the room only were Hui Wen noticed that the white pidgin was gone. “She have read the note, we have to stop her before she does something stupid” Hui Wen said fast while trying to sound calm.“We have to find her, who knows what people she will meet on her way there” Jun Chen said with shaken voice. “Our discussion can wait” Jun Chen continued after looking around for more clues about what had happen to Ling Chang, but Hui Wen stopped him. ”Forgive me for yelling before but you are both very important too me and our discussion is over if Ling Chang has already left as we need to travel right away but I fear she thinks he is at the palace while he is on his way going here instead” Hui Wen said with a defeated but firm voice. “I know, let us stop wasting time and find her before it is too late” Jun Chen replied smiling and a bit more happy even that the unknown about Ling Chang was taking its toll. Hui Wen nodded quickly and was about to leave the place when he turned around against Jun Chen who was walking the opposite way “Do you have any idea of where she could have gone if not directly for the place as something tells me she is here” Hui Wen said a bit bossy but Jun Chen though for a moment before shacking his head “No, I do not have a clue but I will search the market and at the mason while you can search her teacher and the blacksmith if you are certain she is still here” His voice was certain and Hui Wen nodded before replying “Good Idea, we meet back her if we have not found her before dinner time tonight as sort to say but my feeling is getting cold” Jun Chen just replied quickly “Let us start searching now then” and soon they were out of each other sight on their hunt for Ling Chang. He started to walk against the market and before he knew it, he was there even he had searched most of the roads for Ling Chang. His belly started to rumble loud as he smelled the meals being sold at the stands. He had forgotten to eat breakfast because of the argument about the letters with Hui Wen and now they was out to search for Ling Chang. “I hope I find her soon enough without any harm” He thought to himself but it still left his mouth as words. A cold feeling started to rush down his back “What if she had gotten into her rage mood and is killing innocent people this moment” this time he manage to keep his thoughts in his head but the cold feeling did not disappear, instead it got worse as his mind continued to think. “What about our love then, would father allow me to marry a mad woman or is he expecting me to marry some stranger to bring peace to our country… Stop now” His mind was making him shake and he noticed people near him started to look at him but he could not stay calm. Suddenly his minds voice turned from his own to Hui Wen’s voice “Take a deep breath, relax and keep a low profile” at first Jun Chen was so surprised by the change that he looked around for Hui Wen before he finally figured that it was inside himself. The voice repeated itself calmly “Take a deep breath, relax and keep a low profile” and Jun Chen did as told and pretended for a moment that Hui Wen was standing in front of him like doing training but the mind turned sour just as quickly as he knew that Hui Wen would never allow his love with Ling Chang as he were a crown prince and she were not royal. Hui Wen’s voice appeared again and at first Jun Chen could not understand what it was saying as he was trying to keep it out because he worried that it were another argument but it was too strong and it was just repeating again “Take a deep breath, relax and keep a low profile” and this time Jun Chen felt the calm reach his body and he closed his eyes for a moment to bring peace to himself. 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 keep 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 stay calm and focus on finding Ling Chang instead of arguing about the letters in his head. 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.

In the meantime on the Funanai palace, the soldiers and former emperor Jiang Chen has arrived and Gang Chen is quick to honour his uncle with a bow. “Finally my brother gives me a reward for conquering my part of the country” he says and expect Jiang Chen to return the favour but Jiang Chen does not mood a muscle, making Gang Chen angry and yells “Don’t you have enough of respect to greet your nephew?” As he walks closer to Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen feels his presents and answers ice cold “No”, making Gang Chen even more angry and pulls forward a small knife before yelling “I will pluck out your eyes if you don’t greet me this instant” Jiang Chen starts laughing loudly and a soldier holds Jiang Chen’s hair showing Gang Chen the missing eyes. “I could kill you this instant as I can see my brother has already taken some of my fun” Gang Chen yells while throwing the knife on the ground, just in front of Jiang Chen’s feet, and pulls his sword when a soldier stops him from striking. “Maybe we should execute him in front of the town’s people tomorrow, to show them who is their new ruler” the soldier says calmly but Gang Chen is so full of rage that he just cuts down the soldier without answering before yelling to the others. “No one, tells me what to do, no matter if it is a good idea or not” The remaining soldiers takes a step back in fear leaving Jiang Chen alone and before Gang Chen has a chance to wonder what is happening has Jiang Chen already been on the ground, pick up the small knife and is now holding it against the neck of Gang Chen. “Let me go” Jiang Chen says with a firm voice but Gang Chen just laughs and asks “You really want to died now?” And before Jiang Chen has a chance to answer he is knocked down.”Put him in the dungeon and prepare the palace grounds for an execution tomorrow, morning” Gang Chen yells and enters his bedroom. 

Back outside the palace was Jun Chen and Hui Wen still searching for Jun Chen unaware of what had happened. Jun Chen had finished searching the market and had started to walk the nearby roads thin while his mind got more and more worried about Ling Chang which also had other side effects. “Jun” a voice called and at first Jun Chen could not figure out if the voice as female or male but it repeated and this time he knew it were male so he turned around just to catch Hui Wen. “Have you found her?” He started not wasting time and Jun Chen just shocked his head while looking down in the ground. “We will find her, before it is too late” Hui Wen said trying to cheer up Jun Chen who still looked in the ground but his voice was hard in his replied “Before? The palace is at least a day away form here so and they don’t know she is coming so she will be safe until she tries to break inside the place” Jun Chen said. “Yes, stay calm” Hui Wen answered short as he did not want another fight especially not in public. “Have you gotten any new ideas about were she could have gone?” He continued and the question made Jun Chen raise his head and look directly into Hui Wen’s eyes, there were fear in them. “No, and I don’t want to fight either” Jun Chen replied more gentle than before and turned around like he wanted to continue the search. “Sorry, I wished I could turn back the time and tell you all about the letters I have gotten since we got here, but I did not expect your father to be moved so soon beside I am sure that he would have wanted you save more than his own life so please forgive me” Hui Wen said with sadness in his voice and Jun Chen turned back around with tears in his eyes and a voice that did not know if it should be angry or sad “I wish I was back at the palace and the world was at peace but let find Ling Chang then think of my father as I am sure you are right about him” Jun Chen wanted to say more but his head was full of his love for Ling Chang that he felt he could not tell Hui Wen about. “I am sorry for all of this, if only I had found your father’s brother long ago all of this would never had happened.” Hui Wen said and a silence between the two mean started and only their breaths was heard. Jun Chen opened his mouth to say something but closed it again before he opened it again and broke the silence “I forgive you and sorry if I am sounding harsh I am just worried about what will happen next” and Hui Wen eyes smiled and replied “You are just as wise as your old man, we will return the world to what it once were, I swear it” and the words was the last before they turned their backs on each other and started to search for Ling Chang once more. “Remember to return tonight, no matter what” Hui Wen yelled as they have walked a few steps away form each other, making Jun Chen clean his eyes and refocus himself while yelling back “Yes” 

He started walking and the sun when behind a cloud, making it all a bit dark leaving him to focus even harder on the road and people around him. He finished his meal to keep his thoughts on Ling Chang instead and just as he finished the sun peaked forward again and everything became a lot easier. He stopped to think once more where Ling Chang could have gone but his mind was suddenly asking for water so he looked around and by pure look a small stand was selling juices. He turned against it and walked before suddenly without any warning all went dark and stars started to appear. “What happened” He said low while he itched his head trying to return to normal again when his eyes caught the eyes of a woman, her hair was similar to Ling Chang and his voice almost broke as he tried to say her name “Ling Chang?”, the woman responded but their crash had kept Jun Chen inside his bubble, making no sounds enter and he tried to make the woman repeat over and over again before suddenly the sun returned and as he closed his eyes from the sudden light, her voice finally appeared. “Can you heard me?” The voice said and it sounded sweet as honey, leaving Jun Chen no chance of replying by voice so he just nodded rapidly, making the woman laugh loud and her black hair danced in the sun. Jun Chen quickly stood up from the ground and handed out a hand while he managed to control his voice “Sorry, my mistake for being so focused on getting some juice” The woman grabbed his hand and tried to pull herself up, leaving Jun Chen to pull her up too but his pulling was too much extra power and soon they were both back on the ground laughing once more. “Sorry once more” Jun Chen managed to say before getting both of them back on their legs. “It is fine, been a while since last time I had this much fun, but before we call it a day I need to what stranger I have run into so I can find him again another time” The woman said and smiled making Jun Chen forgetting all about Ling Chang or being district for a moment. “My name is Jun Chen, and what is your name, which can only be as beautiful as yourself” Jun Chen noticed the surprise in her eyes but forgot all about it when the woman’s voice appeared once more. “I am no one important but my friends and family calls me Mei Chen” Making them both laugh before reply together “Funny to meet a person with the same last name” before continuing laughing. They stopped laughing and just watched each other when Mei Chen suddenly quickly before pointing at 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?” Jun Chen said and did his best to follow the finger of Mei Chen with his eyes. “There” Mei Chen said and pointed at directly at a white pidgin, looking like gold in the sun and Jun Chen finally caught the same sight and tried to sound like it were amazing “Yes, what a beautiful bird” He said before turning his face back against Mei Chen again. Mei Chen felt him watching her body and turned her head against his head too and for a moment the whole world was silence again. Without any warning she took a big chance kissed him, and at first he returned her kiss like he were some brainwashed slaved but just as Mei Chen started to enjoy it, reality came calling for Jun Chen who pushed her away. “Sorry” His voice was full of shame as continued he to pulled his lips and face away from Mei Chen trying to hide his thoughts and 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 started teasing Jun Chen which made him red in his face before replying “No, never” but his voice revealed it all, leaving him opened for more. Mei Chen knew he were lying, but still she  decided to changed subject as he had already told her all she needed to know about his life. “So brings you to the part of town?” Mei Chen asked with a bit teasing voice but Jun Chen replied quickly ”I am looking for my sister” to keep himself from looking like a foul. “Can I help?” It flew out of Mei Chen mouth and Jun Chen just nodded as he was already trying to figure out where to search. They started to walk doing the road as Jun Chen had forgotten all about his thirst and soon they continuing their 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 trying to hide the lies. “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. “Sorry, I guess I have to do this alone” Ling Chang said suddenly 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” Mei Chen watched as Jun Chen left her and continued his search while dark clouds started to appear one by one on the sky. Suddenly she noticed Jun Chen was talking to some old man and even she was not able to hear the conversation, she  just stood for a moment and looked at them when her face turned into a small sun and with quick steps she got in front of Jun Chen before she yelled with the most sweet voice “Jun Chen, Jun Chen?” And just as she expected was Jun Chen standing right in front of her as her mouth closed. “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 as he started to walk away from her and back to his searching, making her follow him “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, but instead he suddenly turned against her and almost yelled “My father, and please stop being so annoying, I love my sister and she is very important to us so just leave me alone if you don’t have any other mission than to tease me” Mei Chen could feel the annoyance inside her turning into rage but  managed stopped before it appeared on the outside. “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 she left home without telling me why or where she went 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 her eyes turned away from him and on to the woman nearby. They started walked down one street and up another while talking about everything that crossed their minds, but there were no sight of Ling Chang, making the sun slowly move across the sky and before they knew it were suddenly dinner time. “Sorry for wasting your time” Jun Chen started as he knew it was time to spilt up and go home to Hui Wen’s place. “It does not matter, my brother did not expect me before tonight anyway” Mei Chen replies which makes Jun Chen a bit more at easy “I have to return home to my father as we have agreed to meet up back home at this time, no matter if we had found my sister or not… Hopefully he had more luck with the search than we did” he replied and Mei Chen wanted to join him on the way home but she knew that it was a bad idea so instead she just nodded and replied “Yes, I better go visit my brother too or another woman will be missing tomorrow” and before he had a chance to escape she kissed him but unlike the first one, he did not pull away just as fast and they stood for a while as the sun slowly disappeared behind the low clouds in the horizon. Jun Chen suddenly got back to himself and pulled away as he once more replied “Sorry, I am not used at kissing” leaving Mei Chen close to laughing but instead she just smiled replied “Good bye, maybe we see each other at a better time” and Jun Chen looked at her a last time before turning around replying “Good bye” leaving Mei Chen all alone on the street.

She turned around and started to walk down the street while she thought of what she had learned today when suddenly three soldiers appeared in front of her and blocked the road. “Let me pass” She said gentle while she continued her walking like they was not there but the soldiers did not move and as she stood in front of the first her voice turned sour and firm “I am not sure, you know who you are stopping” before she tries to push to soldier away when she hears a laughing she knows. She turns around and watched her brother Gang Chen standing not far from her with some other guy. “We know who you are sister” Gang Chen replies with his dry voice after stopping laughing but Mei Chen is having none of it. “Brother, let me pass” which make Gang Chen and the guy laugh once more. “Sure, as long as you can explain what you are doing?” Gang Chen replies cold and takes forward a bag of coins. Mei Chen is about to say something but feels the hands of the soldiers on her back and Gang Chen continues “Ohh, sorry sister… I forgot my manners… This is Heng, he lost his brother to the old man, you watch Jun Chen talking too” “What does that has to do with me” Mei Chen breaks in just as the soldiers controls her escape. “Relax dear sister. I am getting to that… Heng here watched you kiss Jun Chen even when everybody here knows he is the crown prince and the true heir to this kingdom so you have been so to speak sleeping with the enemy” Gang Chen replies still ice-cold and puts the bag of coins inside Heng’s hands which turns Mei Chen’s eyes from rage to fear as she knows where this is going but still she tries to sound brave “You believe this rat, more than giving your own sister a chance to explain herself.” Making Gang Chen laugh once more. “First of all, his name is Heng and yes I do as according to him, you kissed the enemy two times… the first time, he only watched on his own but the second time, I watched with my own eyes beside you did not came to the palace together with our prisoner so why should I believe you” Mei Chen wanted to answer but before she could get the chance, a soldier force a bandage around her mouth blocking her mouth, giving her not a single chance of defending herself. “I am sure, our brother will be happy to know that I, Gang Chen, has caught a spy and found the last enemies against our kingdom” Gang Chen says with joy and starts walking away form the screen. “Place her in the dungeon, next to Jiang Chen so we can execute both tomorrow” Mei Chen tries to resist the soldiers both they are too strong and one of them knocks her out.

Back at Hui Wen’s home has Jun Chen arrived and his face is full of hope of Ling Chang being there when he sees that Hui Wen is there, making dinner. Hui Wen turns his face against Jun Chen and without a word, the hope disappears and replace with sadness. They watch each other in silence as Jun Chen comes closer than seats next to Hui Wen who breaks the silence. “I am sorry, I have more bad news… Ling Chang has taken one of the horses as only one is left” he says with sadness in his voice. Jun Chen stands up quickly and tries to run to the stables but his legs stops responding to his mind after a few steps and he turns around before returning to the fire in silence. “It is too late to go after her now, please eat and we will travel first thing in the morning” Hui Wen says calmly and place some food in a bowl before handing it to Jun Chen whose mouth opens but a rumble stops him from speaking leaving him no choice to take a bite. He chews the food before trying again and this time he is almost yelling. “We have to travel tonight as she would have done the same for us” Hui Wen just watch him with silence and calm which makes Jun Chen even more annoyed and he starts yelling a lot of random words, making no sense at all. The yelling makes Hui Wen stop focusing on the dinner and instead hold against Jun Chen’s back. “I know, please relax and eat… If we leave today we might loss your father while if we wait to tomorrow and travel in daylight there is a chance to save them both but who am I to decide who shall live or die” He says gentle and calm, making Jun Chen return to his seat, relaxed and starts earning once more. The time goes and they finish eating in silence before Jun Chen’s breaks it “What is your plan?” He ask Hui Wen who smiles and replies “Glad to have you back… do you want the long version or the short version?” Jun Chen thinks for a moment before replying “Tell me what I need to know” and Hui Wen starts “The short version is that I sneak inside the palace of Funanai to get your father out while you travel on horse to reach Ling Chang and bring her to safety” Jun Chen’s eyes gets big before replying “No… I cannot leave you on your own… I join you saving my father and afterwards we find Ling Chang before it is too late as I know that she is not mad” Hui Wen nods and replies “If we both are going to try saving your father tomorrow, you better get some sleep” and before Jun Chen can reply anything against it has Hui Wen killed the fire leaving them all in darkness. “Good Night” they say on the same time before walking inside their own rooms. Jun Chen closes his eyes trying to sleep as he was told but Hui Wen’s quick snoring keeps his eyes open and mind awake. “I miss you, Ling Chang” He whispers in the dark and suddenly the room get full of colours, making him rub his eyes trying to make it dark again when suddenly he seat up with a set and whispers to himself “I know, where she is” and before he knows it, he is dressed and on his way out of the house. He stops for a moment to listen at Hui Wen’s door but only snoring sounds is coming form there and he runs down the path in silence. The town is also silence but he does not care as he is not going inside it but instead the silence is soon replaced by the sound of water, and lots of it running down a waterfall. “Ling Chang?” Jun Chen says with a gentle voice trying to figure out if she is there or not but no reply. He looks around to make sure, he is all alone before he yells “Ling Chang?” Which does not give a reply but it wakes up some fireflies which starts flying around him and he decides to search inside the gave that he and Ling Chang has found even he has no idea of how to get inside the darkness. Suddenly his eyes catch that the path is being light up by the fireflies and he starts following it slowly and safely until he is behind the waterfall. “Are you in here, Ling Chang?” Jun Chen yells in the darkness and a new group of fireflies appears and starts buzzing above something. Jun Chen walks closer and starts smily when he notices that it is Ling Chang who is fast as sleep on the rock. “Wake up my sun beam” He starts gentle before he yawns loudly. Ling Chang sleeps on like nothing has happen and he tries a bit harder but still no reaction from her. Jun Chen starts feeling the fear grow inside him and in spilt second he forgets that he is inside a cave and crushes his head into some rock before by pure luck lands on the stone together with Ling Chang fast asleep.
