KTBW Chapter 16

Chapter 16

Guo Ming & Pang Deyou’s temporary ID cards were finally ready. Captain Chen personally delivered it to Wu Yuanyuan’s home during the weekend. Before leaving, he expressed his two wishes. First, I hope that he will have the opportunity to work with Guo Ming & Pang Deyou in the future. Second, if the two were free, he hoped to ask them more for advice regarding martial arts. Guo Ming was non-committal. However, Pang Deyou agreed casually. At the end he patted Captain Chen on the shoulder and said: “If you can find me the mountain chopper I am looking for, I will definitely show you what my ancestral sword technique can do!”

 

    After Captain Chen left, Wu Yuanyuan leaned over to check their temporary ID cards, and an idea came to her mind, “would you want to travel?”

 

    “Next month, the company will send me out for a meeting and study trip. I can take a few days off and take you to the Jiangnan area for a stroll around the mountains. You haven’t taken a plane before, right? You could try what it is like to fly into the sky!”

 

    “Airplane?” The two suddenly became interested.

 

    “Okay, let me alter Ms. Zeng’s medicine prescription, matter of fact, she is supposed to start taking the medicinal bath next month. We can take the opportunity to rest and fly together!”

 

    Guo Ming continued to treat Zeng Miaomiao while improving her prescription. We have to say that the girl Zeng Miaomiao had earned the admiration of both Guo & Pang. In order to achieve a faster recovery, she endured all the hardships that came her way. Every time while exercising the meridians, she grit her teeth and persisted, and increased the duration of treatment over time. This was one of the reasons why Guo Ming decided to change the prescription. She had asked the Zeng family to prepare a big boxwood bathtub and repeatedly said that not a single form of metal should be on it. Guo Ming wrote the new prescription and went with Liang Jili.

 

    By the time the bathtub was ready, she had explained to the Zheng’s how the medicine was supposed to be decoct and used. They were too informed in detail of the time and precautions for taking the medicine bath. Guo Ming and Pang Deyou took leave after that. After learning that they were traveling to Jiangnan with their friends, the Zeng’s sent three luggages and some travel items over the next day. Guo Ming doesn’t know how expensive the suitcase with the name that starts with R was. By looking at the metal texture, it feels pretty good, light and strong. Wu Yuanyuan was very happy, and she was also shocked by the generosity of the Zeng family.

 

    The three of them packed their luggage, but in fact, apart from Wu Yuanyuan, the other two had nothing much to pack. Guo Ming’s three pieces of clothes were stuffed into Wu Yuanyuan’s suitcase, and Pang Deyou was even simpler, just a backpack. Although Zhang Qiang’s hand injury had not completely healed, she had returned to work, so she couldn’t go with them. As all three of them will be on the trip, she had no excuse to stay at Wu’s house these days too, so she went back to her parents’ house.

 

    The three arrived at the airport three hours ahead of schedule. After obtaining the boarding pass, Wu Yuanyuan took the two “foreigners” and strolled around the airport. After explaining everything she knew about the airport, she explained the procedures of the security check with the two again. The three went through the security checks without incident.

 

    Anticipating in advance the security check requirements, Wu Yuanyuan had checked in the golden needles and a small amount of medicine that Guo Ming required in the luggage, so that the security checks for them were quickly completed. Now, the three of them were sitting together in the terminal building on the seats closest to the window, looking at the big plane parked outside.

 

    At first, the two of them were really shocked, as they couldn’t believe that such a big and heavy iron tube could fly into the sky. The look of the plane, the long tunnel used to board the plane, subverted all their perceptions. After half an hour, the two were tired from looking at the planes. Back on their chairs, the two looked at each other in silence, and then Guo Ming asked, “Do you think your mountain chopper can cut through this thing?” Wu Yuanyuan staggered and fell off her chair.

 

    It could be said that the journey was not as straightforward as you hoped. After giving them the basic knowledge regarding riding on an airplane, Wu Yuanyuan had to keep a close eye on both of them all the time, for fear that they couldn’t help themselves and decided to hijack the plane, or rush to the cockpit , wanting to learn to fly an airplane or something. Luckily, Pang Deyou started vomiting once the plane took off and received extra care from the beautiful stewardess. He was also upgraded to first-class. Looking at his pale face and his inability to even lift up his head, he wouldn’t be a cause for concern or threat after all. So Wu Yuanyuan focused on Guo Ming completely. After looking at the sky outside the window, Guo Ming turned around, smiled at Wu Yuanyuan, and was prepared to close her eyes and rest. Then she felt Wu Yuanyuan’s eyes looking at her. Guo Ming opened her eyes and looked at her, with a gentle look, she said, “Don’t be afraid, I am here.” Then she took Yuanyuan’s hand and closed her eyes to rest.

 

    Wu Yuanyuan looked at her hand feeling flushed, and she could hear her own heartbeat. She was about to explain that she was not afraid but decided not to. As Guo Ming held her hand, she closed her eyes feeling a little sweetness in her heart that she had never felt before.

 

    Jiangnan in this time zone was very different from the Jiangnan in Tianrong’s time zone. Although it is both a water village settlement, they never thought that such a big lake could exist here. Not only that, there were many scenic spots and stories about the lake. When Wu Yuanyuan went for her meetings, Guo Ming and Pang Deyou, who had recovered, went out to stroll around. Under the guidance of the taxi driver, they came to the lake, and it was really crowded. They located and paid a local tour guide to bring them around. The journey involved traveling by car and boat, and many stories were told along the way.  It was very pleasant and fun for them.

 

    In addition to the scenic views of the lake, there were many tombstones of celebrities. Ancient heroes and beauties. The most interesting thing was regarding a bridge there, which was said to be the place where a certain love story began. After listening to the tour guide telling the love story between a human and animal, the two felt that love is something unexplainable. How could a smart and capable snake spirit choose such a human?

 

    The two followed the tour guide for more shopping and sightseeing. Because they were not concerned about the amount of money spent along the way, the tour guide was giving his best performance ever. Not only were the stories told vivid and interesting, they were treated to many local only experiences. The restaurants they went to were also the favorites of the locals. There were fewer tourists around but the cuisines served were top rated.

 

    Guo Ming had to admit that the day’s excursion was very enjoyable! It’s just that Guo Ming doesn’t understand why, whenever she hears a funny story, sees a beautiful scenery or eats something delicious, she will always feel something was missing. It’s a pity that Miss Wu was not there to share the joys.
