Chapter 1: The Two Qiaos Met at Wu Cafe
today I am so sad... my father died due to a car crash. Diary, can you imagine what will I be now? Now, Diary, I'm no longer a cheerful Da Qiao. Now I am a little melancholic orphan, I can't even survive. I can just look up the sky with my eyes full of tears, waiting my destiny end...
Da Qiao wrote it in her diary, then she closed it and looked out at the window. It's raining... rain of melancholy. It seemed that the sky understood her feelings too. She's weak, she's weary, she's nothing now... since her father, Qiao Guo Lao died. Da Qiao was suddenly reminded that the ambulance sent her a letter from her father. It wrote:
Dear my daughter Da Qiao,
I was so sorry to leave you now, but the sky had called me to. Da Qiao, remember, whatever happened to you, dad will always be on your side.
Dad found your mother in the hospital. Both of us were on the same fate due to the same car crash. Your mother asked about you, and I answered that you have grown up to a very sweet and very cute and very nice laddie... oops, not laddie, but lady. Sorry again, haha...
My daughter, there is something important you must know. You have a sister, specifically a younger twin sister, um... what's her name? I don't know, Da Qiao, but you'll find her soon, one day... Da Qiao, about your destiny, it's time for you to go to find a job, but if you can't find one, dad suggested you to be a dancer. Why? Because you danced gracefully as a swan, and as lively as a tiger, as elegant as a phoenix( Remember the Phoenix Fans Dance which you created by your own self with the tape). Show it in front of them. Why not?
In the end, farewell my darling... Dad is now on the flight to the Springs now. Sayonara!
Da Qiao smiled when she looked at her father's letter. Wow, she thought, my father is so magnificent, he even knew that he'll die, and it's now. Suddenly, she got an idea for her way to survive. That's when she read the"Phoenix Fans Dance". How if I danced it in front of them, just like my father said, she thought, and one day someone will find my talent and picked me to work! So, she kept that precious letter to her diary, asking it to keep it well, took out her twin pink-purple Chinese fans, turned on the old tape player in her room, then she danced the whole night, with the mirror as her company. She was so tired, but she didn't mind. It's for herself... She must survive for this! She finally fell asleep at dawn.
The next day, she walked to a crossroad a bit far from her house. She turned on the radio, fans on ready, set, and... As the music started, she started to dance her Phoenix Dance. She soon became an attraction to all the people around her. She felt herself like being a star. The hot Sun is the spotlight, the people are her audiences and her fans, the policemen are the guards of the show, the radio as the musician... Oh, she felt like being a little celebrity. Until one Saturday, a man, around 17, walked around the roads, sadly. He seemed to be beaten hard by someone. He looked at Da Qiao's performance, and he was astonished by her graceful dances and her beauty. Suddenly, an idea flashed around his head.
So he moved to her after the concert ended...
" Hello, miss..." Sun Ce said, without realizing he himself being blushed. "Um... may I asked for your autograph?" he asked, taking out a piece of paper and a pen.
" Sure!" Da Qiao said, signing the paper. "What's your name, mister? My name is Da Qiao." Da Qiao asked for his name.
" I'm Sun Ce. I work at a cafe a mile away there. It's owned by my brother, Sun Quan." that man replied(later known as Sun Ce).
" Oh, great job it is. Why is it owned by your brother? Is he elder than you?" Da Qiao asked again, while handing it back to Sun Ce.
" No, he's younger," Sun Ce replied. " But I don't like to take care of things like that. It's boring. By the way, it's actually my father who owned this cafe. It's too bad he died in a plane accident. I think he could be safe, since it was falling to the sea and he could swim, but that's too bad, he's ... locked in the "Jaws' Davy Jones' Locker." I don't mean the real locker, but it's the shark crunched him as dinner."
" EWWW..." Da Qiao can't imagine how would it be like if she was ripped to pieces by those jaws and finally dove into the sharks' empty tummy.
" So, uh, my brother lead the cafe, since he was really cleverer than me. But, when he lead, all the employees ran away, I honestly don't know why. So I need your help... would you mind if you lent us a helping hand in our cafe?" Sun Ce asked, hoping she would receive his offer.
" Oh, great! Heaven is on my side! I wished to get a new job, and it came true! Of course I won't miss this chance! Thank you, Sun Ce." she bowed to him.
" And thank you too," Sun Ce bowed back, carelessly that he bumped his head to hers. " So, shall we go now?" Sun Ce lent out his hand.
" Let's go." Da Qiao kept her double fans and went with him, walking for a mile.
After a long walking...
" Here we are..." Sun Ce stopped, pointing to a little Chinese building.
" Oh, wow! It's beautiful." Da Qiao looked at the building with amazement. There is a banner on top of the building wrote: "Welcome to Wu Cafe". And there is a Wu character below it, with a red and black background, which the "black" part shaped like a tiger. Da Qiao and Sun Ce were talking about the cafe when...
" BOFU!" someone shouted to Sun Ce, which caused him to look behind. It's another man same age with Sun Ce, which looked beautiful, with a girl with a same age as Da Qiao.
" GONGJIN!" Sun Ce shouted back, running towards his direction.
They hugged and looked so happy that they cried. Da Qiao and that young woman looked at them, giggled. Gosh, they seemed like didn't meet for years, Da Qiao thought.
" So, Gongjin, I wondered how long we didn't meet. How were you in China?" Sun Ce asked him.
" Oh, perfectly long." that man answered back.
Sun Ce and that man kept talking about their memories in the past, while Da Qiao was involved in a conversation to that woman.
" So, uh, who's that guy?" she asked first. "That guy with him is Zhou Yu. And my name is Xiao Qiao, nice to meet you."
" I'm Da Qiao, and that guy beside to Zhou Yu is Sun Ce." Da Qiao replied.
" Hey! Xiao Qiao... Da Qiao... both of us are Qiao?" Xiao Qiao looked suprised.
" Yes... how could..." Da Qiao couldn't believe what did she hear.
When they wanted to talk more about that Qiao thing, suddenly Sun Ce called them both to enter the cafe quickly. So four of them got into the cafe and to the manager's office.
" I'll go first, then both of you came, OK?" Zhou Yu said.
" What... so you..." Sun Ce shocked.
" Yep, I'll be working here too. I was too boring of being a qin musician." Zhou Yu replied.
After a while, Sun Ce's eyes looked shining bright. " Oh, thanks. You are always my best friend ever!" Sun Ce hugged tightly to Zhou Yu.
" Hey, stop that!" Zhou Yu released himself from that tight hug, and went into the office.
A few moments later...
" OK, your turn." Zhou Yu went out, filled with excitement, but pretended to be cold.
" OK, hey! Xiao Qiao, wake up!" Da Qiao awakened Xiao Qiao, who fell asleep while they were waiting for Zhou Yu.
" Oh... morning already?" Xiao Qiao grunted, trying to get up.
" Yep... come on let's get in!" Da Qiao pulled out her hand, and Xiao Qiao held it. Both of them went into the office.
When they went into the office, they found a round-faced man, in the same age as them both, sitting down while looking at some kind of document. When he looked at them, he was so amazed by their beauty. " So... So... beautiful." he thought.
" Excuse me..." the Two Qiaos asked. "Is there a job offer here?"
" Oh, yeah! Sure! I'm so happy to get your help. My name is Sun Quan, and I appreciate your great help to our cafe." he replied.
Meanwhile, Zhou Yu was waiting for them, while playing a little flute he took everyday.
" Say, Gongjin, you could play music?" Sun Ce asked him in curiosity.
" Yeah, when I was in China, I was taught to play their instruments." Zhou Yu answered proudly. " What about you, Bofu?"
" Meh, for me it's boring. I prefer to read my ancestor's treasure everyday." Sun Ce said, while taking out a little book and read it.
" Hmm... "Sun Zi's Art of War"... your ancestor is Sun Zi?" Zhou Yu was shocked.
" Yes, siree..." Sun Ce nodded.
"Wow, how lucky you are." Zhou Yu said with a bit jealous. "Eek," he thought." Why the Heaven didn't want me to be the descendant of the Legendary Sun Zi?"
Suddenly, they heard a shout. "Hey, Sun Ce, Zhou Yu! We're back!" Sun Ce and Zhou Yu looked behind them and saw the Two Qiaos looked... so beautiful in their new clothes.
" OMG! Look at my beautiful angels there!" Zhou Yu had his eyes marked with a pair of hearts.
" Oh, oh... this doesn't seem good... I think I've ever seen this dress before, but where..." Sun Ce looked scared.
" I don't know, Sun Ce. Your brother gave it to us." Da Qiao said, raising her eyebrows when she looked at the pale Sun Ce.
" Yeah, that's right!" Xiao Qiao agreed Da Qiao.
Just as they were about to say more, suddenly...
" YOU IDIOT!" A large bang of double rings suddenly hit the two guys away.
" Ouch... sis, don't be so..." Sun Ce rubbed his head. Humph, luckily for both of them, that Sun Ce's sis hit them through the other side of her rings, not the blade part.
" Sis, this is your brother who..." Sun Ce stepped backward, thinking that her little sister would ask the Qiaos' clothes back to her.
" Nope... just kidding. I just wanna kick some idiot ass! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" she laughed so hard that it could be heard around the world.
" Um... Gongjin, I think we'd better go..." Sun Ce pulled Zhou Yu's hand.
" Hey, Bofu, what the..." Zhou Yu asked Sun Ce about his escape.
" Humph," she blew raspberry to them, then she showed her sight back to the twins.
The twins looked murmuring something." That girl is..." Da Qiao whispered to Xiao Qiao.
" Hi... sorry 'bout that. I'm really like a tomboy, so I love kicking asses. By the way, my name is Sun Shang Xiang, but you can call me SSX for short." Sun Shang Xiang bowed to them.
" My name is Da Qiao, and she is Xiao Qiao." Da Qiao introduced both of them, and bowed back to SSX.
" You know, those clothes you wore... it's actually mine. But maybe, it's my fault not to wear them for long. Yeah, both of 'em are too girly for me." SSX pointed at their new clothes.
" Oh, I see... " Xiao Qiao nodded.
Then they talked for long time... just like they were old friends. Suddenly, Sun Quan went out from his office. SSX looked at him and said to the Qiaos," Watch me kicking your boss!" She took out her ting-a-ring liked thing, which she called " chakrams" and attacked Sun Quan, of course with the wrong side again. The Qiaos giggled when they watched their boss being chased by his little sister.
" Ok, I gave up, Shang Xiang. Please stop it." Sun Quan raised his hand.
" Hahaha... fool you, brother! Hahaha!" a glee appeared again in her face.
" OMG, when will you stop doing that? And be a normal girl?" Sun Quan did a facepalm. Then he walked to his new two female employees and said," So, lady Qiao, how old are you?"
" 15" the twins answered together.
" Where did you go for school?" Sun Quan asked back.
" Well, no, boss, we didn't afford for school." The Qiaos answered.
Sun Quan grinned, and looked at Shang Xiang, then he said," Would you mind if I take you to this school? I'll pay all of the school fund." Sun Quan's offer really made the Qiaos got touched. When they almost wanted to thank him, he replied," No, it's me who have to thank you; with both of you and Zhou Yu, we've got enough employees to reopen this cafe, and... I...um..." When his face seemed blushed, SSX hit him again." Brother! Don't say that you're too obsessed with ladies again. You think that your sis didn't know that?" Sun Quan rubbed his painful head, and muttered," Humph, bossy tomboy," while he went back to his office.
the Qiaos went home, with SSX walking with them, well, just for a walk.
" You knew that, you must be careful to my brother. He maybe smart, but when he saw pretty ladies, he could be a jerk." Shang Xiang mocked his brother, who was not with them.
" By the way, SSX, about that school..." Da Qiao asked." Some said that that school was kind of dangerous, right?"
" Maybe, but you could whack those bullies who tried to kick you off... with those fans, perhaps?" SSX pointed at their giant fans.
" What... the... Da Qiao, how could you have those fans?" Xiao Qiao looked shocked, when she knew that Da Qiao had the same giant fans with her.
" You too!" Da Qiao exclaimed back.
SSX then said," Maybe it's just a coincidence, eh? I've ever seen those kinds at the markets."
They walked for several miles and reached Xiao Qiao's house.
" Hmmm... classic for me..." SSX commented.
" Yeah, but it's better rather than staying on apartments. Too noisy," Xiao Qiao said.
" Wait a sec. My house is just nearby yours, Xiao Qiao." Da Qiao exclaimed while pointing to her house which was only a hundred steps to go.
" OMG! So we are neighbours?" Xiao Qiao exclaimed back.
" Well, seemed lucky for you..." SSX giggled, thought that they were stupid not to know their own neighbours.
" Um... I'd better go now! Sayonara!" SSX shouted, waving her right hand while running towards her house's direction.
" Bye!" the Qiaos waved back.
As she left, the Qiaos were talking about something.
" So, uh, what shall we do now?" Da Qiao asked.
" Let's have a little party in my house." Xiao Qiao said, while opening the door to let her in.
So the Qiaos now met back after they were seperated for long. But, they didn't know that they were actually tied in the same family blood. They only knew that their family was mysterious as they lost the identity of someone, which was said as their sister. For today, they didn't mind much, since they danced with their fans for the whole night till they fell asleep. Well, that's all. Just wait at the next chapter of the Two Qiaos: Knowing the Qiaos' Past.
NB: Sorry if I'd edited the story for lots of times. I'll update the chapter 2 soon, but I don't know how long will it take, since the test is disturbing me. If only it's holiday now... Actually, these Two Qiaos and Wu are my least favorite. I made it because my sister liked it. I liked Shu and Wei instead. Both of them are my heroes, especially Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhuge Liang, Cao Cao, Zhen Ji, Yue Ying... those are my best ones. And about the upcoming chapter, I've planned it. (Careful for Guan Yu's fans, because I could make something weird to him)
Thank you and please review! ^_^
