Around midnight, Mulan was getting ready to take her bath in the lake. She stuck her head out side her tent to make sure that no one could be found up. She saw nothing, but heard the many snoring soldiers. She giggled at how loud they snored, and went back into her tent to grab a towel. Tiptoeing around she tried not to wake the sleeping dragon. All of the sudden she stepped on Mushu's tail
"!" Mushu screamed as he jumped up
Mulan covered his mouth "Be quiet someone will hear you." She told him quietly
"But you stepped on my tail," Mushu said as he rubbed his tail," and let's just say you are not the lightest person either..."
"Sorry Mushu, I tried not to wake you, I was goi..."
"Going where?" Mushu asked as he crossed his arms.
"To the lake, I told you about this last night, since I was almost caught by Ling and his friends that I would take my baths later in the night, so I won't get caught by anyone else."
"Ohh, well I am coming with you, you still need your guardian there, just in case I have to bite someone else's butt." He said as he grabbed his tooth brush and tooth paste
Mulan just rolled her eyes
At the lake Mulan quickly got undressed and got in the cool water. She dived a few times, to have a little fun and floated on her back for a bit, Mushu just sat on the shore going through his newspaper,
"Just call me when you're done." Mushu yelled out as he went back to his newspaper
Mulan just keep swimming, she always loved to swim, and it always gave her a little bit of fun. Mulan swam a little farther away from Mushu, so she could have some privacy.
Mulan quickly turned her head when she heard a splash from the other side of the lake, she saw the figure of Shang, naked getting into the pound. She blushed at the site of him, and then realized what could happen if he found out.
Mulan started to swim away.
"Ping, what are you doing out here so late?" Shang said happily as he came closer
Mulan hid behind the big bolder in the middle of the pond, "A...Just taking a midnight swim...ALONE." Mulan said with a deep voice
"Its ok Ping, it's just me nothings going to happen." Shang said as he stopped
Mulan was relived that he stopped coming closer, but then heard him dive. Mulan swam out from behind the bolder to see if he was there.
" GOTCHA!" Shang said as he grabbed her.
Mulan hung her head down in embarrassment; Shang's hands were holding her breasts. Shang's face turned from a playful smile to an astonished one
Shang backed away slowly, " I...I...I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to violate you like that Ping, I...I...I didn't know."
Mulan crossed her arms around her breast, and turned around to look at Shang, she had tears running down her face, " I...I should be the one who is sorry..." Mulan said as she looked up at Shang, " I did it for my father he would have died if I didn't, and..." Mulan said really fast trying to explain
"Its ok" Shang said kindly
"what?" Mulan said with a sniffle
"Its ok, I can see where you are coming from!" Shang said
"really?" Mulan said as she rubbed one of her eyes from the tears
"Yeah, I would have done the same for my father." Shang said as he placed his hand on her shoulder
"So you are not going to kill me or put me in jail or anything?"
"now, why would I do that to one of my best solders?" Shang said in a playful voice.
Mulan gave him a smile
" Well since I know you're a..."
"Yeah, I was wondering if you could tell me your name..."
"OHHHHHH, ITS ON NOW!" a voice yelled.
"WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?" Shang yelled pointing at the small dragon on the rock.
"THERE IS ABOUT TO BE SOME SERIOUSE ASS WIPPING GOING ON HERE!" Mushu yelled
Shang swam behind Mulan, "MUSHU!" Mulan yelled
"YOU KNOW IT?" Shang yelled questing Mulan
"Sadly, yes" Mulan said in an irritated voice.
"What do you mean by that, I came to help you Mul...um, I mean Ping, yeah Ping" Mushu said
"Mushu he kno..."
Mushu pointed at Shang, "YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET WORSE THAN A BUTT BITE, and YOU HAVE NO IDEA!"
"But Mushu he..."
"DON'T STOP ME KNOW, YOU WON'T JUST BE GETTING A WIPPING FROM ME, OOOOHHHH NO, YOU WILL BE GETTING IT FROM THE ANSESTORS AND FAMILY..."
" YOU MUST LEAVE...PING...ALONE NOW AND NEVER COME BACK." Mushu said as he hissed like a snake"!"
Shang started to swim away, "Come back here." Mulan said as she grabbed his arm
"But I thought you wanted him too..." Mushu said stuttering
"Mushu, what I was trying to tell you is he knows I am a girl, and he is ok with it"
"What do you mean by ok?" Mushu said as he crossed his arms and looked at Shang," Now don't make me have to tear off your..."
"What I meant is he is not mad, and won't tell no one else."
"Ohhh, but still, I am warning you if you make any move on her, I will tear your..."
"Mushu, there is no need for that; the only thing he did was touch my chest." Mulan said in a playful voice
"HE DID WHAT?" Mushu yelled
"Please don't hurt me!" Shang said as ducked down behind Mulan
Mulan gave Shang a questioning look, " It was an accident, he never meant to, and he took his hands away when he found out." she told Mushu
"Ohh, ok as long as he never meant too."
" I never meant too, oh powerful spirit." Shang told Mushu
Mulan covered her face with her hand, and started to shake her head.
Mushu went to leave the lake, "I still don't trust him, so you need to get out."
"Ok, I well be there in a minute."
"You better, I really don't want to..."
"Mushu its ok, I will be there."
Mushu swam off mumbling to himself.
"Are you really scared of him?" Mulan said turning around to Shang
"But he said he could get the ancestors after me, and..."
"He can't do really anything, maybe a small burn, and a bite but that's about it," Mulan looked at Shang.
There was an awkward silence
" Why don't you stop by the tent one night and come meet me and him better."
"GIRL, YOU COMMING OR WHAT?" Mushu yelled
"I have to go." Mulan said swimming away.
"Wait, you still haven't told me your name."
"Mulan, a very beautiful name,"
Mulan got goose bumps when he said her name.
Shang and Mulan's eyes meet
"Until next time Mulan" Shang said one last time.
