(Suddenly, the whole city shakes.)
J: (Astonished) What’s happening?
S: They are coming! It is Dijiang, the creature of heaven.
X: We can deal with it, I think.
S: No! You’ve forgotten our promise? We shan’t hurt any lives until we die, no matter in the Divinity’s or Demon’s Space.
X: Then, follow me and let’s escape to the Devil’s Space! They are not able to reach there.
S: Where do you think can be more relaxed and pleased than Human’s World? The Divinity? The Demon? If I follow you to the Demon’s Space, what will the other demons think of you? Will they accept us? If we really want to go there, then why are we here for thousands of years?
X: (Anxiously) Then we… we…
S: We can spread all our spirit, maybe it can control the volcanoes below. Meantime, the whole nature will stay in safety. Don’t you think it is worthwhile?
X: What? You mean our time has come? Everything is ending? How can you suck it!
S: Every play has its end. We have spent all these centuries together, lovely and happily. Why haven’t you been satisfied?
X: (Sadly) I, I just feel sorry for you. I mean, I’m a demon as you know. A demon shall always exist and never die. But you are a divinity, so I cannot suppose which space you’ll travel to after dying.
S: Why haven’t you got hang of it now? There’s actually no gap between any lives. It is just the gift that separates class from class and soul from soul. You think divinities elegant and monsters ugly? Wrong! Remember, everything has its life. After all, I don’t care where I’m going to be.
X: But I care! Whatever happens, I only want to be with you! Besides, what will you be in your next life? It all depends! I can’t let you take a risk!
S: I know, my dear, I know you care. You merely care about who I am, not what I am, right? So it doesn’t matter whether I’ll become an insect or something else. You are likely to find me among trillions of creatures.
X: But it hurts me when thinking about your suffer…
S: Come on, I always have good luck, just like these centuries. You must take care of yourself, for me, OK?
X: The same to you. I’ll be looking for you forever, forever…

K: Lee, you’ve come just in time!
W: Why, there’s another Yiru!
LY: (Scream) Help, Daddy!
K: Hahaha, you’d better keep still!
LX: What on earth has happened? Why there are two Yirus?
K: Hahaha, (To the false one) now show them who you are!
(The false Yiru change back to the Monster of Picture (MP). Everyone’s astonished.)
LX: When, when did you…
(The MP flashes back to Kong.)
MP: I failed in cheating you by disguising as Zhao. So I had to deliver your daughter to Master Kong. Then I disguised as your daughter to see if you will give in. I didn’t predict that you kids could get rid of the Abstract Surroundings I created. But now your daughter is under the control of Master Kong, Lee. Give in or say goodbye to your daughter!
LX: (Angrily) Ah, that’s it…So you are still in your dream, Uh? Kong? Dreaming of recovering the Demon King?
K: Maestro Lee, why do you have to be so stubborn? To recover my lord is the last glimpse of hope of our race that left. As the Governor, I treat it as my life career. I’m always ready to do myself in if necessary.
LX: So you squashed cabbage leaf disguised as my dear to cheat me into breaking the Great Sword Array and now abducted my daughter to coerce me? That’s absobloominlutely impossible!
LY: (Anxiously) Daddy, ignore him!
K: Shut your mouth, little baby!
LX: Then your aim is to force the Demon in power and govern the whole universe? Haven’t you thought of those in the Human’s Space, who will suffer a disaster if the Demon King recover?
K: And you mean to let the Human govern the whole universe? (Snooty) Look at your world! Full of hypocrisy and tyranny…
W: But human have laws. It isn’t like what you said.
K: Laws? Haha, what can laws do? Only power counts!
LX: Kong, let us make it clearer. It is stupid of you to fight against me. There’s no doubt that you’ll lose! I want no violence unless you would stick to your daydream.
K: But don’t forget your daughter. I can do with her whatever I’d like to. As is already declared, choose from your daughter and the Great Sword Array!
LY: Daddy, stick to your will! Care about the overall situation rather than me!
K: Such an overall situation, brilliant! But it is not you to make the decision!
(Kong enter the Great Sword Array accompanied by Yiru.)
LX: (Shocked) Kong, how dare you…
(The Great Sword Array is activated.)
LX: Damned! The Great Sword Array is activated. It will attack all the substances inside! Xiaohu, mention yourself! I’ll rush to deal with the Array!
(LX fly away by sword.)

(NG, WH and WP are sent back to the Doorway of the Venation.)

WP: The Heart of Pangu is closed…
NG: (Satisfied) Finally, it should be all over. I mean the affair of the Venation.
WH: Have a look outside and you’ll know. Let’s go outside!
WP: (Nervous) I...I…
NG: (Pretending to have known nothing) Oh, going home, Xu? See you later then!
WH: What? (Get the meaning) Oh, yes, yes, goodbye!
WP: (Embarrassed) You…you have already known it, why pretending not?
WH: Pretending what? We know nothing at all!
NG: Yeah, unless you tell us in the flesh and we shall know. If you don’t tell out, we shall not know forever.
WP: Huang, you differ a little from what you used to be.
NG: Oh? Go ahead!
WP: You are becoming more than an elder brother. More similar to…to an adult! I feel easeful and safe when accompanied with you!
NG: (Sighs) Maybe you are right. Everyone wants to stay in his childhood, but one after another, things turn up for you to deal with and troubles to come across. Anyway, we are always growing up. So it is not wise to flee. We must be bravery and face the fact.
WP: En, I see. I admit that I am the lovely Peach Monster. In fact, I really want to tell out but fearing that you will look down upon me…
NG: How can that be? Don’t forget we are closest friends! I think it is you that look down upon us for not telling the truth!
WH: I can’t agree more!
WP: My ability is still weak, so I cannot stay in human-shape in such a powerful place like here.
WH: It doesn’t matter what you look like. Whatever you are, I will secure you. Then don’t “go home” this time.
WP: It is not convenient this time. Therefore I have promised someone else, you know. I must find a proper place and cultivate myself.
NG: OK, and next 15th, we are going to the Inner Mountain to help Xuan. Don’t forget to come! It’s a deal!
WP: It’s a deal!
(WP is ready to leave.)

(It is night. Moon shines brightly.)
TH: The moon is so big, just like a cake.
LS: A cake? So you’re hungry again?
ZY: (helplessly) ….Too late….Better go back….I bet that the Master won’t treat us tonight. It would be better to come tomorrow.
TH: Ziying….Do you think it happy to be here up the mountain?
ZY: (Keep silent for a while.) Lingsha also asked me about that and my answer will be the same. To gain the most powerful ability and the most abstract knowledge in order to promote the justice and chastise the wickedness, that’s what I always be willing to do, be wanting to do and be waiting to do! If one can do what he is willing to, why doesn’t he feel happy?
TH: But, it seems that gaining powerful ability merely has things to do with repetition, just as a tongue-twister, over and over again every day. Oh, that’s so boring! After all, without powerful abilities, you can also promote the justice. So why can’t our lives be more like the former ones?
ZY: Not exactly….
TH: I didn’t always get it before: why did Dad leave here since controlling a sword is such an interesting thing? But I think I’ve got it finally. We’ve gone through so many things these days. Think about Sister Musician, who didn’t find a little bit blooming happiness after being apart from her lover to become a swordsman. Think about the twin sisters in the Cave of Shennong, who were even more misery….(Dejected) Then I got to know that gaining powerful ability is not so perfect as it is said. It can also hurt you, or even, kill you.
ZY: Wrong! You can’t see one side of a mirror only!
TH: Maybe I’m a little foolish and can only reach this layer….
LS: What? You mean I’m as foolish as you? What I thought is just the same as yours. I haven’t found a single man who is able to live forever up the mountain. There are only troubles troubling you, making you even more depressed. I’d better make an effort somewhere else….
TH: Oh, we share the same point, Lingsha. Then what about Mengli?
ML: Me? I originally attempted to tour around and experience more. I really don’t care about gaining the powerful ability. It makes no difference to me to go anywhere with your company. Although Qionghua is powerful, it doesn’t pay much attention to the method of living forever, which Lingsha wants to achieve. If Childe Yun doesn’t want to stay here, neither will Mengli.
TH: ….OK, then, that’s a deal? Let’s go off together after helping the Brother!
ZY: (Astonished) Tianhe?!
TH: Set your heart at rest, we will live near the mountain in case that the Monster’s Space comes. We are always ready to give you a hand!
ZY: I’m not worrying about that. Anyway, the frightful Monster’s Space is far beyond your imagination. How can you birdies help? I’m just worrying about….
LS: Ha, I know. You’re just worrying about our leaving. Is that right, Little Ziying?
ZY: You three hurriedly came and will hurriedly leave. Are you so sure that this is your final decision?
LS: Ziying, listen to me. If you think gaining the most powerful ability is the happiest thing in the world, you should stick to it and never give up. Tianhe, Mengli and I should find something else that we are equally willing to do.
ZY: ….(ZY wants to say something, but chokes back.)
LS: In the past, I happened to feel depressed and slopped over for some trifles. But after meeting you, many things seemed to be suddenly enlightened. Perhaps what really matters is not the change of surroundings, but the frame of mind. (LS looks straightly at ZY.) Ziying, promise me, you must lead a happy life and be the most powerful swordsman even after our leaving! Don’t forget to come and see us when a birdie becomes a master!
TH: (say with a smile) Yeah, don’t forget me, either. I will treat you with the most delicious fried pork!
ZY: ….(Meditating) I promise you! I will keep it life-long!
(Everyone looks at the moon.)
LS: I’ve said so much that I was not able to speak out before. It totally differs from what I used to be.
ML: It is just hard to avoid sadness when leaving.
TH: Oh, cheer up! We are not immediately to leave. We have to help the Brother find the third thing first.
LS: Right, and it is the last one, near the Chao Lake. It’s a piece of cake. Let’s take actions tomorrow morning!
(Everyone keeps silent. The moon is still shining.)

B. To gain the most abstract knowledge.
C. To promote the justice and chastise the wickedness.

4、Why do they plan to live near the mountain after leaving?

D. Because the Master want them to be the guards of the mountain.
5、How often is the Monster’s Space nearest to the mountain?
A. Every seven years.
B. Every nineteen years.
C. Every ninety years.
D. It depends.
(Suddenly, armies of monsters appear. LX, ZL and LY feel shocked.)
LY: (Nervous) What….what do you want to do?
(The Governor of Monster(GM) appears.)
LX: (Angry) What’s your purpose? You intend to overwhelm us as you have advantage in quantity, and meanwhile we are exhausted?
GM: No, no, no, we would rather kill ourselves than affronting humans who are able to beat a divinity. (Begging) My lord, please, helps us leave this cursed tower! Since you’ve beaten the Guard here, you must know the way to leave here!
ZL: I, I don’t know how, either….
GM: (Ignore ZL) And that is to say, we must eat ninety-nine human-beings or a thousand monsters so as to escape? I spared no effort and only got five humans and eighty monsters during the last five hundred years. If everything stays the same, I can’t predict how many five hundreds I shall wait.
ZL: But by the time you achieve the aim, you will also be confused. Your method must be a snaky stratagem. It means to let the monsters in the tower do cannibalism kill.
GM: Hmm….that makes sense!
ZL: Everyone, as a human proverb goes: where there’s a will, there’s a way. In spite of the solidity of it, the tower is built by human-beings, not by the divinity. So I think there certainly will be a method. Let us just calm down and meditate.
GM: I’m down. Buddies! As a governor, I proclaim it forbidden to do cannibalism kill. No obedience, no right to live! Got it?
ALL THE MONSTERS: Yes, my lord!
GM: What’s more, the one who can find out a method to leave here shall be the governor!
(All the monsters are hesitating.)
GM: Eh? Nobody attempt to have a go?
(The Bookman(BM) appears.)
BM: You think you stupid monsters can possibly solve such an abstract problem? Ask me, the Book Elf, and whatever confuse you will be clear!
GM: There’s no seat for you, Book Booby!
BM: Show me your respect, ignorant boy, I’m the Elf, not booby!
GM: Little monster, don’t forget I’m your governor. Want to taste my fist?
BM: Haha, it is the order of the Divinity’s husband. No obedience, no right to live! Got it?
LX: (Surprised) Husband? Me?
GM: (Snooty) Oh, we are proud….
BM: Hey, guys! There’s only one method to escape and I’m the exclusive one who knows.
LX: (Delighted) Really? Then go ahead!
GM: Don’t believe that banana, he can only make jokes!
BM: But you can’t deny that??? what??? I? said? straightly? X mooth(x=字母 s，因為19樓審核緣故，不容易啊，我一個一個單詞試過來)???? your trouble.
GM: You mean the foolish idea to rescue my brother, which trapped me in a crock for eight years?
BM: But the fact is that your brother is free.
ZL: Calm down, everyone, calm down! Let’s listen carefully to the Book Elf!
BM: Thanks for the Divinity’s favour. About six hundred years ago, the King of Dynasty Liang assembled all the brilliant artisans, using the hardest material to build the tower. After the construction, he has the surroundings of the tower accreted with millions of powerful magic spells. So even the sharpest sword cannot do a little bit damage to it. We must make the deconstruction on its weakness of the structure.
ZL: That is to say, destroy it inside?
BM: Exact! See these eleven huge sword columns? They are the main shores of the tower. Seven of them form the Seven-star Dragon Sword Array. Three others lock up the Dragon’s Tail. This one here locks up the Dragon’s Head. All the eleven make the Dragon tied to the ground.
GM: That’s it! We only need to break them above.
BM: Be patient, young guy! The support points are under the Death Water, how will it work if you only break them above?
GM: (Angry) You….
BM: So if someone can dive down and find these support points and break them, it is difficult for the tower to exist.
GM: You’re always joking! Who can do that? In case you don’t know why we call it “Death Water”!
BM: Rubbish, of course I know! But do you know that this kind of water do no harm to humans? The designer of the tower may think it absolutely impossible for a human-being to be here….
LX: (Anxiously) But now, here I am! I’ll take that job!
LY: Here we go! I can wait no more!
LX: (To the GM) Governor, tell your people to gather. We’ll meet here after I accomplish the work.
GM: OK. (To all the monsters) Buddies, quick, do as he said!
(All the monsters go to get prepared.)
GM: Take your time! Good luck!
