CHAPTER 11-"She is not my sister."
[the next day....they all went out together...Edan brought them all mountain climbing...]
Jaye: Saw Lui!
Ice[makes a weak smile]
Hang: You guys are so slow...[appears to be ahead of everyone]
Ice[couldn't stand Hang being a smart ass]: I'll beat you to it. [runs up]
Both Jaye and Rain: Suet, becareful.
Ice: Don't worry. [Jaye and Rain were both stunned to see Ice so active]
Rain: well, it isn't too bad. She traded her fear of heights with amnesia. I didn't know amnesia can cure things.
Jaye[let's out a disbelieve grin]
Pit: well, maybe she forgot she even had that phobia...anything can happen.
[after a while...all resting...]
Hang: use to what?
Ice: nothing...nothing. I'm going to the bathroom. [walks away]
[on the way, 5 men approaches Ice....]
[the men quickly pulls an attack...one after another Ice easily handles them...]
Man[mumbles to another man]: I thought she couldn't fight?
Ice: Well, think again.
[Edan is on his way to get soda....he hears fighting noises]
[the men, after a few more trials quits and ran off..]
Ice[caught one man]: who sent you here? [the man struggles to be freed] you better talk before I blow your head off. [the man felt a sudden struck of pain, he falls to his death before he could speak]
Edan: he's dead.
Ice[starts to look around]: someone killed him...but who? [knees down to the body, observes the bullet hole.]
[back home...Jaye and Rain is in their room]
Rain[busy checking out the decorations on the wall]: wrong with what?
Jaye: who else, our sister. I don't know, I have this unfamilar feeling around her.
Rain: of course she's Suet, don't over concern yourself.
Jaye: no, didn't you observe her behaviors? ok, you're Wan Lum, you have a mind of your own...just listen...she called me Jaye, she never calls me that. She has been afraid of heights since the childhood years I've been with her, that never changed. I'm being to get suspicious over this person who says she's our sister. She sure doesn't feel like it. And don't forget, she never once spoke of Joe or showed her concern for Joe! She loved that guy and he's probably still on the hunt for her back in NYC. What happened there?
Rain: you're confusing me now. She said she has amnesia, remember. You're always scaring yourself, relax ok. When our sister starts reporting to orders, then we can start worrying. Go to bed....
[in NYC....in the secret tunnel of the bowling alley...]
[HK...Pit and Edan settles outside the balcony...]
Edan: Gor, you're telling me you sense it too?
Pit: no, i didn't say that..whatever...
Edan: Gor, I don't really know Suet before but if even Jaye starts to suspect her...
Pit: Edan, trust me. You don't have to be cautious over her. She's truthfully one of us. Let's not bring this up again. Learn to converse with her, she can be very nice.
[next day...at a bakery...]
Sum[pulls on his jacket]: Ba Ba, it's the pork bun with white colored bread...
Edan: Yes, I know. That's your favorite.
Lady: Mister, the last pie of cheese cake has been pre-ordered by someone already. Can I get you something else?
Edan: no, it's ok.
Ice[walks in the store]: Hi Miss, I order a cheese cake...
Edan[turns over, surprising sees Ice]: Suet? So it was you.
Ice: hey! oh you wanted the cheese cake too? They make the best here.
Edan: no kidding.
[in Edan's home]
Ice: You sure eat a lot, the bun wasn't enought right!
Sum[stuffing herself]: thanks Jah Jah.
Ice[sits on the sofa, takes out her box of Andes(chocolate)]
Sum[starts to stare at Ice]: Jah Jah, you eat Andes too? Ba Ba loves that. Jah Jah, have I seen you before?
Ice: I don't remember. (wait i do know you...)[recalls Sum complimenting her beauty during the plane ride.] Maybe[smiles...couldn't stand the mess made on Sum...she decided to clean her up]
[While Ice cleans Sum, being a naughty girl, she whips some cake on Ice's nose.]
Ice: Lang Mui, what are you doing? [takes out both of her index fingers] do you know what these are. [starts to wiggy them] it means ticking for a little girl.
Sum: Oh no...
Ice: fine, unless you help me clean up.
Edan[ watching by the kitchen...]: you know you can only get away with it with Ba Ba. [to Ice] Thanks. She alway end up diasterous with sweet substances.
Ice(I miss that little guy): I figure most children are like that and that's what makes them adorable.
[the door unlocks...Ice enters her home...]
Ice[kneels down and hugs him]: Have you been a good kid while I'm gone?
Ci Ci[comes out]: Are you sure this is save? To show up here?
Ice: I'm sure, don't worry. Thanks for coming back to HK.
Ci Ci: I'll watch Yuen for you. He's been a very good boy.
Ice: Did you? [Ci Ci nodded her head]
Yuen: Bing Jah, you can't always keep everything away from me. I'm mature enough to know and understand.
Ice[looks at Ci Ci]: Why am I being lectured by my own son? What has the world become to?
Ci Ci: Yuen, when people tell you, you are too smart for your own good, take that into consideration.
Yuen: You all should be proud. It's not easy seeing these kinds of smarts.
Ci Ci: enough...your mother is waiting for you.
[Ice enters into her mother's room]
Mei: You never thought of discussing it with me, didn't you?
Ice: It came too sudden. It was my chance.
Mei: Chance? Why can't you let go of it. It's been so long already, life has to go on. Do you not care about your sister anymore? What did you promise me?
Ice: mother, I can't. He is Yuen's father. I cannot let the ruiner of my family...
Mei: why do you have to be so stubborn over a dead person. Isn't the safety of a living person more important.
Ice: Avenging Bo Yau's death is as important.
Mei: But no one has been able to discover your sister's whereabouts.
Ice: I care about her too, but I can only handle so much situation at a time. Mother, I'm sorry I cannot continue with this conversation...[leaves]
[in Ci Ci's room]
Ice: you alway have been supportive.
Ci Ci: put it this way...our friendship has surpassed any mother/daughter relationship.... we are each other's worm surviving with you everyday in your stomach...
Ice[showing her chills]: that kind of description wasn't necessary but yeah, you can put it that way.
Ci Ci: I only speak words of truthfulness.
Ice: Ci...I'm quite confused on my status now. I feel i have to do that, but I can't let go of that.
Ci Ci[laughs]: let me interrupt that again.....you are confused of what to do...you have to find Suet but you cannot let go of Dylan's death.
Ice[immediately goes over to hug her]: how can i not love you...
