Above in the heavens, Xiao Jie clicked on his PDA to pinpoint Senior Ya Tou's whereabouts on earth. In a blink of eye, a red spot popped up. He let out a wry laugh, "Hmmm...West End District in...Taiwan?? Interesting..."
He went on to zoom in on her activity, yet the screen on his hand blacked out. A giant sign came into sight with a message error, "Protected Zone - Trespassers To Retreat". "What?!!" He flinged the gadget away, which consequently vanished into thin air of bubbles. Clenching his fist, he was extremely angered, "No way! There must be some barrier of defence securing her safety..." Digging into one of his silvery robe's pockets, he got out the booklet, "Yet, the whole cupid population in this land had received the news of you Ya Tou missing...Time is still in my hands to rectify this problem of tension between us both...HaHaHa!!!"
Over on earth, Ya Tou was engaged in a mental and emotional struggle within herself to figure out how she came to be at the location where she was this very moment. Stuck in Gui Gui's bedroom, she has been pacing back and forth trying to recall all that had last happened in the Land of Fantaisie. "Ahh!!" An idea soon lit up out of the blue as she inferred, "I must have signed on my own passport!! Oh, that sneaky junior of mine...Pretenting to be a pathetic sickly cupid..."
A huge distraction followed as the next second, the door flew open and Gui Gui came storming in, hurling a certain something from the grasp of her hand across the room to her messy desk at the opposite end. Her display of temper startled Ya Tou who merely stood watching with fright.
Gui Gui threw herself hard onto the sofa, "Good Heavens...Obnoxious fangirl...So what if you've got a boyfriend?! Scrutinizing his every move would only push you closer and earlier to a breakup! And don't ever tell me afterwards that you don't deserve such treatment!!" She crossed her arms in a fit of outrage and pushed herself against the firm support of the velvet cushion, closing her eyes to vent off all remaining frustrations and then calming down.
Seeing her in such exhausted state, Ya Tou slowly walked up to her side. At such a close-up distance between both girls, she could have a chance to study and gaze onto the lovely features of her delicate face. Spending some minutes of unbreakable silence on the task, she finally snapped, "Right! You are the charming young lady - Gui Gui. Once on an 1000th year assignment, I remember you as a kid in a theme park...You played with a toy-vending machine and managed to win in one go, every single stuffed toy in it. Out of love and compassion, you gave each one of the adorably cute animals away to all children who had been patiently watching you...Oh what fate that I'm here before you today..." Ya Tou clasped her hands together to offer a second's worth of thankful meditation.
Since the girls were both two different beings, Gui Gui was not capable in sensing Ya Tou's presence, much less to hear every word she had uttered with her heart's concern. She continued to allow herself some time for a rest and also to cool down her emotions, completely unfeeling towards a newly-arrived companion in the household.
Ya Tou was sensitive to her weariness. She reached over to wipe off unseen beads of sweat on Gui Gui's aching forehead and placed a comforting hand on her shoulder, "I can even sense your muscles tensed due to burdens of daily human life...Poor girl..."
Getting up and heading over to the table, Ya Tou saw what Gui Gui had thrusted onto the table. She picked it up and read, "Cupid's Helpline..." Thinking of possible remedies, she then shut her eyes to focus her power on what she was holding. After seconds, she was grateful that the effort had worked, "Gui Gui, make full use of the heavens' support!!"
