Chapter 1: Camp
Mulan was back in camp once again. The Emperor had heard news from his shouts that there were some remaining Hun's on the loss and that they were moving quickly. So like the Emperor did last time he sent for all solders and strong men to go to camps and get ready. When they got to Mulan's village, they personally asked Mulan to come back to camp.
Mulan agreed to it and was there the next morning. As she entered through the thick, wooden doors she looked around at the familiar sight that she had not left to long ago.
"Mulan!....." She turned around to the familiar voices, it was Yao, Ling and Chien Po and they were running right towards her. Before she could say hi, she felt herself being lifted off the ground by Yao. He then placed her back down and she hugged both Ling and Chien Po.
"We didn't think we going to ever see you again!" Exclaimed Chien Po with his cheerful grin.
"Nope, I'm back, I'm so glad to see you all again." Said Mulan.
"I'm sure the Captain is too." Said Yao with a smile upon his face, making Mulan's checks dark red.
"What do you mean? It's not like he likes me or anything." She said trying to make her point out clear to them.
"Why do you like him?" Asked Ling as he crossed his arms in front of his chest like he already knew the answer but wanted to hear it from Mulan.
"Guys, guys, lets leave Mulan alone about this. She did just come in we wouldn't want to start annoying her." Said Chien Po as he put his hands on top of Yao's and Ling's shoulders.
"Alright, Hey lets go get something to eat, I'm starving!" Said Yao rubbing his tummy, and it growled.
Mulan followed them to where the kitchen was, She decided that Khan was probably getting tiered of holding all her stuff on his back, So she decided to find a spot and make her tent and unpack all that she brought with her.
As she continued packing, Khan who was busy grassing, heard footsteps near by. He looked up and saw that it was Shang coming their way. Knowing that Shang was a friend he neighed and nudged Mulan on her back. "What is it Khan?" As she turned around and saw Shang only a couple feet away from her. "Hi" She said getting up from the ground.
"Hi, I didn't know you arrived." Shang said as he crossed his arms in front of his chest amazed by her quiet entry.
"Sorry, I was going to tell you but I couldn't find you so I decided to unpack then go find you and tell you that I was here." She said brushing off her hands. Suddenly the loud growl from her stomach making Shang raise an eyebrow.
"You sound like you are hungry, come on I'll take you to get some food."
"Ok" She followed him as they went through the crowed of people just to get to the small little kitchen where a old man was busy keeping everyone with food on their plates.
"Hey! Captain Li, what would it be today?" Asked the head chef who was elderly man, near his 60's. Shang smiled at his old friend.
Shang gently pushed Mulan in front of him and said, "Can you make something here for Mulan?" Mulan smiled at the man. He walked over to her with his eyes wide open.
"Of course anything for China's heroine" He took Mulan's hand and kissed it making Mulan giggle. "What would you like my dear?"
"Um...well what ever is easier."
"How about I make you my special, would you like that?" He asked.
"All right then." He then turned to his cooks and yelled out, "Make this fine lady here our finest special that you've ever made!"
He looked back at Mulan, "It shouldn't take long, just take a seat over there and I will bring it to you." He said bowing down at Mulan.
"Thank you." She bowed down as well and both her and Shang made their way at the table. Mulan and Shang sat across from each other not knowing what to say next.
"How have you been lately?" Asked Shang breaking the silence between them.
"Good, What about you?"
"Same here, I've been busy training that is." He thought to himself if he should ask if she had seen the matchmaker but then he didn't want to seem too obvious. Before he could even say anything more the gang of three sat right by them.
"Hey guys! What ya doing?" Asked Ling with his obnoxious way that he put his tone of voice. Shang sighed and rolled his eyes at them.
"Mulan is waiting for her food." Said Shang annoyed by their presence.
"Hey after this do ya want to go one on one, to see if you still have it in ya?" Asked Yao as he cracked his knuckles.
"I can take you down easily, Yao." Said Mulan.
"Sure, but that was like a mount ago. I just wan to make sure that our Ping, isn't wimpy." Yao said messing with Mulan. Mulan smiled with confidence.
The nice elderly man came out with a plate full of hot food. He set it down in front of Mulan and bowed down, "I hope you like it?"
She looked at the food, it was almost like it was from a fancy restaurant. "It looks delicious, thank you." She took her chopsticks and began to eat. The gang looked at the food and their jaws dropped.
"Hey Mr. Chef dude, How come we don't get that kind of food?" Asked Ling looking at the elderly men with an unfair look.
"Are you Fa Mulan the heroine that saved all of China?" He said putting his hands on his hips.
"No......" They all said at once. But then got stopped by him again.
"Well then I guess you don't get the meal. Plus she looked like she was starving so I decided to give her a full meal. Now if you excuse me, I have work that needs to be done." He bowed down at all of them and was off.
Mulan was done in no time and had her little one on one with Yao and the other's. Shang couldn't stay because he had to take care of some other things first. When night had fallen, she went back to her tent and fell right to sleep.
While night had fallen, the gang was near one of the many warm fires talking amongst each other. "Hey guys." Said Shang walking up from behind them as they sat on seats by the fire.
"Hey." They all said with a sleepy tone. With wine bottles in each of their hands.
"Have you guys seen Mulan?" Asked Shang in a curious tone. All their faces turned towards Shang.
"Why do you care?" Asked Yao once again messing with Shang's head. "You like her don't you?" Yao said with a funny smirk on his face.
"What? No, I just wanted to know where she was that's all." He said trying not to act so obvious that he did have feeling for her but didn't want to show it.
"Sure....." Said Ling. Shang gave him a warning look, like as if not to mess with him.
"She went to bed not to long ago." Chien Po said being the only decent one to answer his simple question.
"Shang, you got to admit to us that you have feelings for her, because we know the truth so don't try to hide it." Said Yao.
"I don't know what you're talking about." He said, but didn't even look at Yao when he asked it.
"Shang, we all saw your face when you watched Mulan as she left the palace so don't try to........" Said Ling but got interrupted when Shang said,
"All right, all right, so.....I have some feelings for her. Just don't say anything to anybody, especially Mulan, got it!" He said getting irritated by the three.
"I knew it!" Said Yao and Ling at the same time giving each other high fives.
"You promise you won't say anything?" He asked once more.
"Shang, your secret is safe with us." Said Chien Po reassuring Shang.
Well how do you like it so far? It will get more interesting in the future chapters. Please read and review, Thanks!
