“Men!” Yan muttered under her breath. “They are such idiots sometimes.”

“You’re right. They are such idiots sometimes.” A familiar voice from within the darkness agreed with her.

Freezing, Yan scanned her surroundings. From within thick foliage, a slender form emerged.

Recognizing the person, Yan gave a self-deprecating laugh. “But you’re not an idiot, because you’re not a man.”

NORTH STAR TOWN
LAKE BEHIND CHERRY BLOSSOM INN

Into this scene, a tall man clothed in a long midnight blue gown entered, his booted feet sinking into the earth softened by puddles of blood. The man scanned the area, his eyes noting the bodies of the Thousand Snake Black Rose Clan members. Deducing what had happened from the scene in front of him, his heart rate quickened with worry and he quickly leapt over the bodies as he frantically searched for the person he had been looking for in the past three months. Finding no trace of her presence among the dead bodies, he sighed with relief.

Suddenly from behind, he heard the pounding of footsteps. Quickly, he swung around to find an elderly man dressed in a long light gray gown. The elderly man tripped and stumbled over the dead bodies scattered around the perimeter of the lake, his expression a comical combination of disbelief and rage.

MIDNIGHT
NORTH STAR TOWN
CHERRY BLOSSOM INN

Alarmed, Yan jerked awake and sat up in bed. “What’s going on?!”

“Shh!” Chung Nam placed his finger against her lips. Listening closely, he shifted his attention to the roof right above their chamber as he detected light footsteps darting expertly across the roof tiles. Hunching downward, Chung Nam instructed, “Quickly! Climb onto my back!”

Without questioning him, Yan looped her travel sack across her shoulders and swiftly climbed onto Chung Nam’s back, wrapping her arms around his shoulders tightly. At that moment, the roof suddenly crashed down onto them as ten men dressed in black descended upon them.

MIDNIGHT
NORTH STAR TOWN
CHERRY BLOSSOM INN

The quaint Cherry Blossom Inn in the small town of North Star sat proudly in its coveted location at the center of the market square, where travelers must pass through to reach the larger surrounding towns and villages. As the only inn in the town of North Star, Cherry Blossom Inn, named after the town’s breathtakingly beautiful cherry blossoms which flourish during the spring, was still bustling with activity even at the late hour of midnight. Inn guests crowded the inn’s downstairs diner, occupying every table, some hungrily devouring their simple meal of pork buns and noodles, while others leisurely sipped wine or tea. Continue reading

(The Prequel) Chapter 7: Falling in Love

Legendary Book of Sun-Moon Swordplay – The Prequel

AUTHOR’S NOTE REGARDING CHAPTER 7 – FALLING IN LOVE: There is a hot kissing scene in this chapter. Don’t worry, it’s still pretty toned down and there is nothing vulgar or XXX. However, if such scenes offend your sensitivities, please simply skip over that paragraph and continue on with the rest of the story. (You’ll know which paragraph it is when you get to that part.) You won’t miss anything other than the hot kiss.

SEVERAL HOURS LATER…
NIGHTFALL
CAVE

Water cascaded down from the waterfall, crashing violently into the pool beneath, frothing and spraying cool droplets of moisture onto the couple leaning against the cave wall a few feet away. As sprinkles of water landed onto her face, tickling her, Yan wrinkled her nose in her sleep and snuggled closer to the warm body next to her. Squirming, she rubbed her cheek against the muscled chest she was using as a pillow, finding comfort in the steady heartbeat against her ear. A hand, slightly rough textured, lightly stroked her long tresses, before settling onto her cheek. As a callused thumb caressed her cheek gently, Yan frowned at the disturbance. Whimpering softly, her lower lip poked out into a pout while she unconsciously squeezed her eyes tightly. Frustrated at being disturbed in her sleep, she turned away from the hand and grumbled while her hand whacked at the bare chest. At her actions, an amused, deep masculine laugh escaped from the throat of the man she was nestled against, causing his chest to move slightly, rousing Yan from her slumber.

DAWN
ONE HOUR LATER
HEAVENLY CRANE SCHOOL
MAIN RECEPTION HALL

Outside, the first rays of pale light burst through the thick layer of fluffy clouds, splashing the sky with a silvery brightness as night started to recede. Gradually, brilliant streaks of pink, orange, and red colored the horizon, filling the sky with a kaleidoscope of radiance, readying it for the arrival of the rising sun. A bald eagle burst through the clouds at that instant just when the horizon blossomed fully with vibrant hues, the bird’s feathery head a resplendent powdery white against the tapestry of blazing reds, oranges, and pinks.

Off to the side, Ling Dong watched in horrific fascination. Whispering to himself, he muttered in a barely audible voice, “Speak of the devil. It’s Sit Chung Nam…”

Staggering to his feet, Leader Luk jabbed his finger at Sit Chung Nam, his anger very apparent. “Sit Chung Nam!” He demanded. “What is the meaning of this attack?”
