Fanfic: A Cypress in Winter – Chapter 15 (Ice Fantasy - 幻城)

Chapter 15

Xing Jiu sat at a plain wooden desk in his room, bent over a book he had retrieved from the Imperial Library earlier in the day.  The manuscript was bound in bronzed leather, cracked and dry with age, and smelled faintly of mold and dust.  The original stitching was barely holding it together, but the words written on the spine were still clearly visible: Descendents and Guardians: A History of the Ancient Clans.   He sat back in his chair and stretched, bleary-eyed from scanning pages for several hours for any mention of the Blood Red Lotus or Earth Tribe.  Predictably, he had found nothing, and he rubbed his temples in frustration as he considered returning to the Library for more research.

The world abruptly turned upside down as he was suddenly launched into the air and sent tumbling like a leaf in a blizzard to the far side of the room.  He crashed into stone, a frosty magical noose around his neck, the cord pulled so tight…

Chapter 38.75  - aka a Holiday Fillerwritten by kakashi

Where was everyone? Shao Wan hated nothing more than to be left all to herself on this dreary mountain. The cranes were pretty entertaining, but not for long stretches of time. She had taught them a little dance. Stand on your left leg… hold. Change! Stand on your right leg …. hold. Both feet on the ground. Turn around, turn around, turn around. Peck the ground, gently peck your neighbor to the right (the “gently” had been the most difficult part to teach these birds). Peck the ground. Gently peck your neighbor to the left. Bow. Mo Yuan’s face had been priceless when she first showed him. This level of tricks was their limit however - trying to teach them to jump over each other had been a failure.

JoAnne:  Well what do you expect?  He can't even get a mask fitted properly. And really, plain white? He might as well slap a piece of bread on his face with a hole cut out for his eye.

At nightfall, when everyone had retired to their rooms and the only sound was the wind howling on the mountain, Yan Zhi felt confident enough to leave the comfort of her chamber. Qiao Er was fast asleep; the poor but happy child had exhausted herself under the care of Zi Lan’s seniors while Yan Zhi had recuperated from her injuries. They had given Qiao Er all the attention she had never known she could get, which meant that Yan Zhi had been able to relax for the first time in what seemed forever. But this was not a time to dwell on her own needs. She had a mission tonight.
Yan Zhi walked through the dark passages. The moon was rising late tonight, it was pitch black outside - but immortals from the Ghost tribe were comfortable in the darkness. Low light had always been an advantage to her clan, especially during combat and spy missions, because they could take opponents from other clans by surprise easily. Finding wha…

Bai Qian spent a great deal of the next few days dodging questions from her fourth brother and Zheyan. She and Moyuan seemed to have reached a silent agreement on acting outwardly normal while there were other people around. While Bai Qian found it a difficult task and decided to avoid him altogether, Moyuan continued to demonstrate this natural skill of his effortlessly.

Shao Wan inclined her head, like one did when other royalty was departing and murmured friendly goodbyes, like one did when being civil. She waved at the Imperial Grandson, whom she felt genuinely fond of. He was so cute in his earnestness, yet very smart for a kid his age, with the necessary naughtiness to ensure he would never be as boring as most of his relatives up in the Heavens. The young Celestial twin, too, she didn’t mind … how could she when he looked so much like his older brother. But the Fox Queen! How did she, the Demon Ancestor, the oldest living Goddess in all the realms, deserve to be treated with so much contempt and haughtiness by that vixen! For no reason at all!

kakashi: Still on the Danube!
JoAnne: Tori is here again! 
Trotwood: I bet you are excited, Jo. I'm trying to readjust to being back in the states after my sojourn to South Korea.  All I can say is at least I'm not hot anymore.  That's it. Sigh. But once again, it looks like Jo is watching everything while everything seemed to end for me last week except SF.
I actually haven't seen much of her yet, just a few hours over a couple days, and I leave tomorrow for a business trip.  She'll still be here when I get back, though.
SakiVI: I am working so hard these days.  I really need my Cheekos.

Xun Ru wiped at the sweat running in minute rivulets from his forehead with a grubby sleeve, cursing softly under his breath. It was hot today, and though he was relieved to be free of the bone chilling cold of Ice realm, he was uncomfortable in the oppressive heat hanging over the forest. He looked back at his Ice Tribe companions and chuckled.  If he was uncomfortable, they were downright miserable.  Zhanshi’s hair hung in damp locks, his face shiny with the sheen of perspiration. He did not complain, but periodically glared at Xun Ru balefully as if he was to blame for the inhospitable weather.

Before Bai Qian could leave the room, as was advised in situations such as these, the Ghost Princess had already pushed Zi Lan off herself. Yan Zhi hurriedly brought her disheveled clothes in order and ran passed Bai Qian in such haste, she was afraid the Ghost Princess might trip. Once the door slammed shut behind her, the only sound to be heard was 16th’s groaning. He had hit his head against the wall quite forcefully.

In his dream-like state, he found himself engulfed by the blazing horrors of hell. The fire in his body wouldn’t subside, he could not find relief from this raging torment. He couldn’t get away, powerless to move, powerless to escape. Unable to wake himself, he was condemned to endure his physical torment. Why could he not find relief? Was he dead, in the underworld? No, he realized, this was a dream - one of those that could be controlled.

“Well, that’s it, I’ll be leaving now,” announced Diefeng, the last to remain in the hall.

With the exception of Changshan and Zilan, who elected to stay at Kunlun because Diefeng, out of worry for Moyuan, had asked for at least two to remain, all the other disciples had gone on their way.

Zheyan and Bai Zhen were now sitting at one of the side tables and Moyuan on his dais.

“Have a safe trip, senior,” Changshan bowed. Zilan and Bai Qian followed his example.

Diefeng smiled, “Take care of everything here, Changshan. And you --” he turned to Bai Qian, his eyes became stern though edged with brotherly love, “When you get to the Celestial Palace, behave. Don’t try to pull any of the tricks you’ve done here. You’ve always been Shifu’s favorite, don’t disappoint him.”

“I don’t want to be anyone’s favorite,” Bai Qian blurted out with a massive eye roll, and quite loudly.

From his table, Bai Zhen shook hi…

Back when Ye Hua had explained to Bai Qian that the Demon Goddess was not after him but rather her Shifu, she hadn’t wanted to believe it. When the news had come that that woman and her Shifu were married - without a proper ceremony at that! - she hadn’t wanted to believe it either. Later, she had been angry. Then, she had felt sad. Now, all there was left was bewilderment. She just didn’t understand what her Shifu could possibly have in common with that crass and rude goddess.

With a pang of nostalgia, she thought about Kunlun back when she had still been a disciple. To expect everyone and everything to remain the same was foolish, of course. But after her Shifu had woken up, all the other disciples had returned to Kunlun and had resumed their lives at the school. While she moved on to a new life, they had not. That change was happening at Kunlun now was only natural, but it still made her emotional. Shifu, Shifu had gotten married and it …
