GOLDEN PHOENIX INN

Not paying close attention to her path, Chi Chi collided right into another person running up the stairs. Reeling from the impact, both parties fell backward, landing on the floor in a tangle of arms and legs. Shocked, both women looked up at each other, their eyes round with surprise.

BAMBOO FOREST
OUTSIDE BAMBOO COTTAGE

A gentle breeze sent the wind chimes hanging on the front porch of the bamboo cottage swinging haphazardly, filling the air with a light musical tinkling. At a nearby bush, a rabbit hopped around, sticking its furry nose out of the thick shrubbery to sniff the air. The sharp chirping of birds echoed throughout the forest, the sweet melody blending in perfectly with the continuous gurgling sound of the nearby brook.

Not far away from the cottage, leaves could be heard rustling as a white robed young man raced across the treetops, his fan expertly cutting through the air in rapid and precise movements. With a powerful flick of the wrist, he flung his fan toward the grove of bamboo stalks. The fan made a shrill, swishing noise as it sliced through several bamboo stalks upon contact before deflecting off the sturdy, ancient willow tree and returned to its owner.

HOI YEUNG CITY
OUTSIDE GOLDEN PHOENIX INN
IN THE STREETS

Across from the Golden Phoenix Inn, a crowd had gathered outside the entrance of a restaurant to admire the celebration of its grand opening. Two lion dancers expertly moved to the rhythm of the drums and cymbals as they maneuvered their way toward the ladder leading them up to the dangling batch of cabbage attached to a red scroll. In the background, the townspeople cheered the dancers on, clapping enthusiastically to the beat of the drums. Several long strands of lighted firecrackers leapt and popped furiously, adding to the cacophony of noise.

Enthralled, Siu Han stood at one end of the crowd, her wide eyes focused on the festivities, her hands clasped together with childish glee. Small pieces of red confetti from the firecrackers floated haphazardly in the air, a few bits landing on Siu Han’s hair and shoulders. Lun gently brushed the red bits of paper off her hair and shoulders and stared adoringly at her, admiring the twinkle in her eyes and the soft smile gracing her lips. Both are so engrossed that they did not notice the darkly handsome man standing at the entrance of the Golden Phoenix Inn glaring across the street at them, his face stony with rage and his hands tightly fisted.

Legendary Book – Character List

With such a huge cast of characters, I thought everyone might like a character list with some pictures, like the Prequel.  I don’t have pictures for the entire cast, but I will keep adding photos as I come across them.  If you really want to see a particular character/actor’s picture, please let me know, and I will try my best to search for a suitable image.

GOLDEN PHOENIX INN

Blissfully unaware of Lun’s discomfort, Siu Han, being an “active sleeper,” wiggled on top of her human pillow every few minutes, unknowingly keeping Lun in a constant state of arousal. Finally, unable to take this torment any longer, he wrapped his arms snugly around her to prevent further sinuous movements. Gradually, as fatigue overcame him, he dozed off and silence filled the room, except for quiet breathing. As Lun slept with Siu Han’s heart beating close to his, he drifted off to a time long ago, when two other individuals’ hearts also beat as one…

FIVE MILES FROM LAM MANOR
NEAR THE EDGE OF THE FOREST

The voice switched to a serious tone. “The Seer has awakened. You must find this person immediately.”

Siu Tin shook his head in confusion. “But I thought the Seer does not exist and is nothing more than an ancient legend.”

The voice sighed. “Oh, no… The Seer is very real…very real… She is, after all, one of the founders of our Sun Moon Sect.”

Yin Yuk’s eyes lit up in alarm as a new thought occured to her. “Teacher, if the Seer has reincarnated, then according to the legend that means…”

Siu Tin finished his wife’s sentence. “That the reincarnation of the Guardian will soon also awaken, and the Swords of Sun and Moon will resurface to again attain their former glory!”

Chapter 14: Reborn the Seer

To fans of the Prequel who are not also reading this main story, I would recommend reading this chapter, since it contains brief guest cameos of characters from the Prequel.

To my long-time readers of Legendary Book (the main story) who have already read up to Chapter 82 from the old winglin site, I strongly recommend that you read this chapter again, as I have heavily edited it with new dialogue that should give more insight into the Seer’s past life.

Thank you.  I really appreciate everyone’s support and comments.

LAM ON CITY
EAST SEA ROYAL INN

After a depressing morning of finding the young woman whom he had been searching for and then losing her again, Gu Yat Keung stomped angrily up the stairwell of the East Sea Royal Inn to his inn room on the second story. He swiped disgustingly at the front of his robe, trying to brush away the sickeningly sweet fragrance used by the women at Pearl Fragrance Pavilion.  He grimaced at he memory of being mauled by those aggressive, man-eating women. He had finally managed to escape by making threatening gestures with his daggers, scaring them off. Reaching the threshold of this room, he swung open his inn room door, his mood dark.

GU YAT KEUNG’S INN ROOM

Keung muttered to himself as he stepped into the room. “Women…can’t live with them, can’t live without them…”

Fei, who sat at the table, his fingers tapping a discordant rhythm on the tabletop, burst out, “Finally! Where have you been all morning?”

DAWN THE FOLLOWING MORNING
FIVE MILES FROM LAM MANOR

Gu Yat Fei tenderly brushed aside her bangs. “Why did you save him last night?”

The simple joy of being in his arms vanished as Siu Han sighed and wandered a few steps away to pick nervously at the leaves on a low-hanging tree branch.

Chapter 83: Love Rivals

Hi, everyone.  After much deliberation, I’ve decided to release the new chapters (Chapter 83 and beyond) to the main story to thank the long-time readers who have made an effort to hunt this story down to Cloud Manor.  

I strongly discourage the newer readers from reading Chapter 83 of the main story, because it contains lots of spoilers!  Knowing these spoilers will only ruin your enjoyment of Legendary Book.  Do not even peek.  I will continue with my revision of the earlier chapters, so instead of satisfying your curiosity, please just follow along with my revised chapters.

To the older readers, I hope you enjoy this update.  It has been a long time, and it’s good to be back with a new chapter for my original project.  If you’re looking to kill time in between the postings of the new chapters, please give Legendary Book – The Prequel a try.

Finally, I will be back to reply to everyone’s comments later.  Thank you for your support of my stories and for letting me know that you are reading.  As always, thank you, Moonblossom, for hosting the stories here.

MIDNIGHT
LAM ON CITY
LAM MANOR

Housekeeper Lau shook his head fervently.  “Mistress, there is an army surrounding Lam Manor!  There must be hundreds of soldiers on horseback and even more ground troops.  They have completely blocked off the entrances of Lam Manor!”  He swiveled toward Suk Yu and grabbed her hands.  “Third Young Mistress, Young Master Ching Bong has come for you!  He’s outside right now, demanding to see you!”
