Kbar 20: Happiness

Minli's father likes to tell stories. For example he told the story of the fruitless mountain with Jade Dragon (the cloud) and her kids. This time Ba was going to tell the story of the Paper of Happiness. I can not tell stories really well and if I do then they won't come out as good. The story of happiness is about this family that was always happy, they say that even the chickens didn't fight for their food. When a holiday is just around the corner, there is so much chaos because we have to organize everything. The Magistrate Tiger(master) didn't believe that the would family be happy so he tried to break the happiness.

Kbar 19: The Greedy Monkeys

The Greedy Monkeys
So far Minli and the Dragon have been walking and talking down some paths until the came upon a peach grove with monkeys inside the grove. These monkeys have are so greedy that they won't let Minli and Dragon pass by. If I was in this situation I would try to think of a way of trying to get across. This is what Minli also decided, she put a bowl of rice far from the grove and let the monkeys get the rice. Then the monkeys went to the rice and Dragon went to put a net over them so they wouldn't escape. This was very smart of Minli because I probably wouldn't have thought of that.

Kbar 18: Worried

Ma an Pa where trying to find Minli. Ma is a nickname for mom. Pa is a nickname for dad. They went up the mountain following some footprints. If I where Ma then I would do the same thing and try to go look for her. Ma and Pa where looking for Minli, but they ran into the goldfish man. The goldfish man is a guy who gave Minli the goldfish. The goldfish told Minli the directions to go to the mountain. I wonder if I would be that brave to go looking for my fortune if I have directions that a goldfish gave me.

Kbar 17: Stroytelling

Story Telling
This chapter was so sad to me because the dragon has a very unique story of where he came from. The dragon came from a painting. This was because the dragon was going to be given to a Master. I am pretty sure that the master wanted a dragon painting because back then dragons symbolized great power. When the painting was given to the Master, the Master noticed that the dragon had no eyes. The dragon, on the other hand, is hearing everything because he is alive but can't see. This is so weird. Then the Master gets a paintbrush and he paints the eyes of the dragon. At that instant the dragon got out of the painting and ran away. If I were the dragon I don't think I would have runned away because the might kill me when the find me.

Kbar 16: Bravery

If I were Min Lee I wouldn't go out and try to fix my fortune. This would be such a hard task. I would have to be very brave to do this task, that's why I wouldn't go out and try to change my fortune. On the way up the mountain she meets up with a dragon. This dragon was stuck in the weeds underwater. Min Lee's reaction is so cool because instead of running away she try's to be friends with him and trying to get him out of there. I don't know what my first reaction would be. Maybe I would've been screaming with all my guts or running away. Maybe I would help the dragon because he was calling for help.
