Mysterious Moonlit City

Mansion Spring Edit

Story Stage Story Stage

In mid-spring, new green climbs onto branches.

  • (Year 677, New Era, Moonlit City)
  • (Mid-spring. Green is everywhere in and outside the city.)
  • (In the garden of mayor's palace, peach flowers are in full bloom, loudly proclaiming the prosperity of spring.)
  • (Spring wind blows through the branches, like a bow fiddling violin string. Sunlight dances on flowers.)
  • (A wave of jingling laughter passes over from the garden.)
  • (Wearing a butterfly-pattern dress, the slender girl dances, her waist-long hair fluttering to her moves.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Sister, you are dancing so beautifully!
  • (A boy's sound. The girl stops and when she sees the pretty boy, she smiles.)
  • Xie Lisheng: You sneak out again. Did you finish the work father gave you?
  • Xie Guizhou: It's too boring. I want to come out and play with you... Is it a new dance?
  • Xie Lisheng: Hmm, Zhou, what do you think of it?
  • Xie Guizhou: Very beautiful! Like... Like that poem, 'Gentle like the moon covered in cloud, flowing like snowflakes in the wind'... Isn't that you?
  • Xie Lisheng: That's too much flattery.
  • (The girl pokes the forehead of the boy in a smile. With no makeup, she looks like a beauty in the picture. Her blooming smile seems to be shining in the spring.)
  • Xie Guizhou: I'm just telling the truth. Sister is the best dancer in the Moonlit City! Oh, sis, is there a name for it?
  • Xie Lisheng: Eh, not really. It's a dance for the prayer ceremony at the end of the year. It's not finished yet... Why don't you give it a name after I finish it?
  • Xie Guizhou: No problem. I'll think of a name that blows the whole city away!
  • Xie Lisheng: We'd better keep the city, or there will be no need to do the prayer. Now, go back and finish your work. Don't make father angry.
  • Xie Guizhou: Ok... But first, you have to dance again from the beginning. I didn't catch the beginning when I came!
  • Xie Lisheng: Alright. But you promise, after that, you will be back. No more excuses.
  • Xie Guizhou: Sure!
Garden Secret Mayor and Sister
  • (Swinging her long sleeves open, the dance begins.)
  • (As the long sleeves dance, her long hair and dress also move rhythmically. Her slender figure jumps and spins, flexible and intangible like a fairy.)
  • (She spins under the peach tree.)
  • (Suddenly, a gust of spring wind comes and shakes the branches. A rain of pink flowers falls.)
  • (Pink flowers flutter and the girl dances in this flower rain, like a butterfly dancing in the flower field.)
  • (The boy aside looks and adorns, bursting into clappings from time to time.)
  • (Across the high walls, the claps and laughter echo in the warm spring sunshine.)

In flowing moonlight, fireflies dance.

  • Xie Guizhou: Wake up! Sis, wake up!
  • Xie Lisheng: Hmm... Zhou [sic]
  • (Xie Lisheng sits up, puts on a coat, and looks at the boy by the bed.)
  • Xie Lisheng: It's so late. What are you doing here?
  • Xie Guizhou: Dad is asleep. Let's go catch fireflies!
  • Xie Lisheng: Fireflies? But it's midnight...
  • Xie Guizhou: Last time when I snuck out from the study, dad gave me a good scolding. Since then, I have not gone out for a single time... Come on, sis, let's go outside the city to hang out!
  • (Moonlit City outskirt. The moonlight is like a quiet river.)
  • (A big banyan tree is extending its branches under the moonlight, among its branches elusive green light spots are shimmering.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Hush...
  • (He makes a gesture to Xie Lisheng, and sneaks up to a firefly on the tree, then suddenly covers it with his hand.)
  • Xie Guizhou: One more! Sis, I'm way ahead of you.
  • Xie Lisheng: Don't be too cocky too early. I'm catching up soon!
  • (The stars glitter in the night sky. Clear moonlight quietly shines down onto the two. Cool night wind blows on their hair.)
  • Xie Lisheng: It's such a beautiful moon night tonight.
  • Xie Guizhou: Yes! Finally, I can catch a breath. You have no idea how boring it is to be forced to read those scriptures and learn rules of management.
  • Xie Lisheng: Father is doing this for your own good. You are to be the mayor of Moonlit City. How can you manage if you cannot even figure out these?
  • Xie Guizhou: Hmm... It's boring to be a mayor. I want to do things I like just like Sister.
  • Xie Lisheng: Do you mean dancing?
  • Xie Guizhou: Hmm. Sister is so happy when you dance, sometimes, I even want to have a try myself...
  • Xie Lisheng: Really? Then... Zhou, can you do it now?
  • Xie Guizhou: No! You will laugh at me.
  • Xie Lisheng: Why should I? Come, show me.
  • Xie Guizhou: Okay... But you can never tell the others.
  • (The boy stands up and starts dancing under the moonlight.)
  • (Though a bit clumsy, he dances with a unique vigorous nature.)
  • (The girl sits quietly while watching, her eyes smiling.)
  • (Dots of fireflies circle the two, seemingly to warm up the cool night wind.)
  • (Suddenly, the boy stops.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Enough.
  • Xie Lisheng: Why? Zhou, you are dancing very well!
  • (The boy turns his face away, his blushed face hidden in the night.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Not even reach half of Sister's level... Let's catch some more fireflies to make a night lamp. Come on, sis!
  • (The girl nods, but when she tries to stand up, she staggers.)
  • Xie Guizhou: What's wrong, sis!?
  • (Her face looks a bit pale, but she manages a smile to the boy.)
  • Xie Lisheng: I'm fine. Let's go. We still have some time before daybreak.
  • Xie Guizhou: Alright... Let's compete with who can catch more fireflies! The loser... will carry the other on the back home! I'll change into cute pet clothing to attract more fireflies!

Concluding Dialogue Edit

  • (The boy turns to run to the banyan tree and doesn't hear the sound from behind.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Sister?
  • (The boy turns back and only sees the girl lying on the ground, motionless.)
  • Xie Guizhou: ...Sister!

Bird in Cage Edit

Candle burns out. Time changes people.

  • (Mayor's Palace)
  • (Candlefire shakes, making subtle sounds from time to time.)
  • (The dim light reveals several figures in the room.)
  • Xie Yuan: Doctor Yue, is my daughter alright?
  • Doctor Yue: The lady is ok. She will wake up by daybreak. But...
  • Xie Yuan: But what?
  • Doctor Yue: I'm afraid, Mayor, but I have to say...
  • Xie Guizhou: Speak, what's wrong with my sister?!
  • (A young man jumps out from behind the screen, shouting.)
  • Doctor Yue: The lady's heart disease is congenital. I'm afraid there's no way to cure her.
  • (Doctor Yue shakes his head and tells something to Xie Yuan in a low voice, seemingly very helpless.)
  • Xie Guizhou: No way! My sister has been very healthy. Aren't you a doctor? Heal her!
  • Xie Yuan: Calm down!
  • (Xie Yuan's words are harsh, but the sorrow in his eyes cannot be hidden.)
  • Xie Yuan: So my daughter... Doctor Yue, do you have any method?
  • Doctor Yue: The lady should avoid movement and take more rest. Maybe...
  • Xie Guizhou: Maybe she will recover one day?
  • Doctor Yue: Maybe she can earn some more days. As for the rest, I'm sorry that I cannot help. I feel for you.
  • Xie Guizhou: No way! My sister was so healthy. She dances so well... This is impossible. Impossible...
  • (Candlelight dances and silence returns.)
  • (Through the wooden flower window, the morning light shines into the room, illuminating the dust dancing in the rays.)
  • (Xie Lisheng sits on the bed, looking outside the window.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Sis, check out what I got here!
  • (The lad rushes into the room with a snack box in his hand. He opens it before Xie Lisheng.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Look! Your favorite osmanthus cake from the shop in the western part of the city. You have no idea how long the queue was... Take a bit! It's freshly made!
  • (Xie Lisheng manages a smile on her pale face, then pinched a piece of osmanthus cake and takes a nibble.)
  • Xie Lisheng: Thank you, Zhou... I like it.
  • Xie Guizhou: ...But you don't seem to like it. Sis, what do you want? I buy it for you! As long as it cheers you up.
  • (Xie Lisheng rubs the young man's hair, a soft smile on her face.)
  • Xie Lisheng: Sister is happy now. I don't want anything.
  • Xie Guizhou: (But sister is not happy. It's so obvious... How can I cheer her up?)
  • (Xie Guizhou looks at her face. The original flower-like face has turned pale and even a smile is toil to her.)
  • (So the lad decides to cheer his sister up every day. He makes faces, he tells jokes, he makes a fool of himself in front of his sister...)
  • (The sister looks at the boy with a soft smile. She is smiling but the boy can see the sadness in her eyes.)
  • (Xie Lisheng often sits by the window side, staring at those withering peach flowers, and the birds, who stay shortly before they fly away.)
  • (And the boy stands at a corner where Xie Lisheng cannot see to watch her.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Sister...

  • (Xie Guizhou shows up below the window, with a package in his embrace.)
  • Xie Guizhou: What are you looking at, sis?
  • Xie Lisheng: I'm adoring the moon.
  • Xie Guizhou: Boring! It's the same every year. Let me take you to a good place. I prepared you a surprise!
  • Xie Lisheng: But... Doctor Yue said I should rest.
  • Xie Guizhou: Don't worry, I'll carry you there!
  • (Xie Lisheng shakes her head after a while of thinking.)
  • Xie Lisheng: I don't know. Zhou, thank you... But I don't want to go anywhere.
  • Xie Guizhou: Sis, just this one time, come on! Today is the mid-autumn festival. I want to go view the flower lanterns with sister. We did this every year.
  • (Xie Lisheng cannot bear to get him disappointed and finally nods.)
  • Xie Lisheng: Okay.
  • (Carrying Xie Lisheng on his back, Xie Guizhou come to the riverside of Moonlight of Moonlit City and puts her down.)

  • (That concentration without reservation gives her pure happiness.)
  • (Xie Lisheng suddenly bursts into laughter. Like the first ray of sunshine dispels the thick fog, true and powerful.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Sis, you are smiling!
  • (The music suddenly stops. The figure stops and when he turns around, Xie Lisheng finds it's Xie Guizhou in the dancing dress. He now has his hair made into the style of hers.)
  • Xie Guizhou: This is the prayer dance sis prepared for the city ceremony. I've learned a long time... How does it look?
  • Xie Lisheng: Hmm, Zhou, you are dancing very well. I'm very happy. But how can you...
  • Xie Guizhou: I know your dancing is your favorite... Though you cannot dance now, you have me.
  • Xie Lisheng: Zhou...
  • (Xie Lisheng opens her arm to Xie Guizhou. Xie Guizhou squats and buries his head in her waist. Xie Lisheng holds her brother closely.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Don't be sad, sis. I'll dance for you from now on, just like you are dancing yourself, alright?
  • Xie Lisheng: ...Yes.
  • (Xie Lisheng rubs brother's head on her waist.)
  • Xie Guizhou: Sis, this dance is not finished yet. How about we finish it together?

  • Citizen A: Is that our lady?
  • Citizen B: But isn't she...
  • (The drum goes louder and louder, and the red figure begins the moves to the beats.)
  • (Hands fold and unfold, the body jumps and spins to the beat, clothes flutter vigorously. Under the light, that red figure is like a burning flame.)

Thank you, Zhou. I'm really happy.

  • Toto: What's after?
  • Mom: After?

  • Classmate A: Wow, a fountain show! Hey, Toto, what did you do? Did your parents take you somewhere fun?
  • (Toto, who has been quiet all the time, raises her head.)
  • Toto: No...
  • (Toto says goodbye to her classmates. At the school gate, she sees a man who's waving at her and runs over.)

  • Mom: Mom doesn't know, but I believe time will give us the answer.
  • Toto: So... What will my prince be like?
  • Mom: Then you must seek yourself. When a man can give you special happiness, he could be your prince.
  • Toto: ...Special happiness?
  • Mom: Yes, when you think of that man, you will get such a feeling that you can eat cotton candy, wear a beautiful dress every day.
  • Toto: So will I become a princess, just like mom? Can I?

  • (Starlet holds the notebook, walking back according to the map she drew herself.)
  • (Starlet walks back and forth in the block for dozens of times, and until the moon rises and draws her shadow long, she finally finds the familiar door.)
  • (*Squeak-)
  • Starlet: I really should not go out in the first place.
  • (Starlet lies on the bed. She doesn't turn on the light and stares into the ceiling lit up by bright moonlight. The helpful lady's face jumps into her mind suddenly.)
  • (But soon, the lady's image is replaced by the dark forest in the memory.)
  • Starlet: Is it this way?
  • Mate: Yeah, this forest is a shortcut. Cross it and then you will be home.
  • Starlet: Thank you!
  • (Starlet thanks him sincerely, but misses the sneaky smile of the others.)
  • (Starlet remembers that she was walking in the forest for so long until the sunset, and that day is a moonless night.)
  • (Tall trees, like giant beasts, surrounded her. She hid in the bushes, crying until she fell asleep in fatigue. It was not until the second morning that grandma found her.)
  • Starlet: I just, just don't want to get fooled again.

Garden Secret Starlet
  • Mate A: Look, look, it's her.
  • Mate B: Eh, it's her? She doesn't look like that stupid...
  • Mate A: She doesn't even remember the road home. Every time she gets out, she just cannot go back.
  • Mate B: Haha, she's such an idiot? Cannot even remember way home?
  • (Those words are buzzing in her head.)
  • (Starlet lowers her head, walking by silently.)
  • (She always hears these words, 'Starlet is a fool', 'Starlet is so useless.' She is getting numb.)
  • (Is she really a useless idiot?)
  • (Right, how can one possibly forget the way home after so many years? Except for an idiot.)
  • (Starlet still remembers the handmade candy she prepared herself. She planned to give it to a classmate next door.)
  • Mate C: Who will play with an idiot? Playing with an idiot will make you an idiot.
  • (Yeah, nobody will play with an idiot.)
  • (Starlet looks at those extremely similar roads, feeling only lost.)
  • Starlet: They look so similar.
  • (She stops, looking at the roads and buildings ahead, seemingly hearing those taunts again. She feels she cannot breathe.)
  • Starlet: I want to go home.
  • (Starlet turns back, but after several steps, the roads become strange again.)
  • (She bites teeth and walks ahead. At the cross, she picks a road randomly. Finally, she is home before sunset.)
  • (She goes to the door, opens the mailbox, and takes out a package inside.)
  • (She returns house. The package is a letter and a book. The letter says 'To my most beloved granddaughter, Starlet. Happy birthday.')
  • Starlet: It's a gift from grandma!
  • (Starlet opens the book, finding that it's a divination book. The flyleaf reads, 'Find the direction of heart for the lost.')
  • Starlet: Can it really help me find the direction... Then I will change into simple academic style to study divination seriously!

Invitation Edit

Story Stage Story Stage

The only chance, invitation to the Night of Divination

  • (It's sunny outside, but the house inside is completely dark. The thick curtain closes tightly, blocking the light outside.)
  • (A figure sits on the bed, reading a book in the hands.)
  • Starlet: Give up all the thoughts and let your mind calm down and concentrate... And again, again...
  • (Starlet reads the texts on the book, but still confused.)
  • Starlet: How to concentrate...
  • (She puts away the divination book. She looks at the floor under the window, on which a beam of sunlight makes its way through the curtain.)
  • Starlet: Will I find the way after I learn this? But I'm so stupid...
  • (She mumbles, staring at the light beam. Soon, she looks back and shakes her head.)
  • Starlet: Don't think of too much, anyway... If I don't go out, there will be nobody laughing at me and I won't be lost.
  • (Though she says so, she takes up the book aside and goes on reading.)
  • (Suddenly, a card slips off the book.)
  • Starlet: Invitation to the Night of Divination...
  • (A notice written in gorgeous script.)
  • ('Secret diviners from various parts of Miraland will gather here to share the secrets of divination.)
  • ('There will be five invitations and they will be delivered randomly. If you are interested in exploring the mysterious world of divination, it will be an unforgettable night.)
  • Starlet: Night of Divination... There will be many great diviners there. Maybe... it's a chance for me.
  • (Starlet holds the invitation tightly in the hand, making a decision secretly.)
  • ('Sha-'. The tightly closed curtain is pulled open suddenly, letting in the light to fill the whole room.)

Secret Woman Edit

Drops Serene Petals

  • Attributes: SimpleLivelyMatureSexyWarm

A forest you cannot walk out from. And the secret woman.

  • (Starlet has walked around the forest for a whole day, yet still unable to find the way out.)
  • Starlet: It's getting dark...
  • (Starlet looks around. The sun has set down.)
  • Starlet: Will I be trapped here forever?
  • (Starlet lowers her head. The desperate suffocating feel comes back again, like that night many years ago when she was fooled into the forest by her friends.)
  • (She feels it's the same forest and she will never get out.)
  • Starlet: I can do nothing properly. I cannot make it to the Night of Divination. This could be my last chance.
  • (With those in mind, she sits down under the tree and prepares to give up.)
  • Starlet: Will I be trapped in this forest forever? But even if I find the way out, it makes no difference. I will still be laughed at.
  • ???: Poor little thing.
  • (A voice comes from above suddenly. Starlet looks up and finds a strange woman in a strange black hat sitting on the branch.)
  • Starlet: Who are you? Why are you sitting on the tree?
  • Star Seer: I'm observing the stars.
  • Starlet: Observe the stars... Are you a diviner too?
  • Star Seer: Too? So you must be a diviner.
  • (Starlet feels her ears getting warm and lowers her head in a blush.)
  • Starlet: Not really. I'm just a beginner.
  • Star Seer: Don't worry, divination is not that hard. Observe with your heart and you will see the secrets in the stars and nature.
  • Starlet: But I am a fool who cannot even find the way home. I cannot do anything.
  • Star Seer: Unable to find the way home? That's no big deal.
  • (The words set Starlet in flame instantly. She stands up and says.)
  • Starlet: You know nothing because you have not gotten lost before, so you have not been laughed at before, so you think it's no big deal.
  • (Hearing the rebuke, the woman, however, does not get angry. She squints and smiles at Starlet.)
  • Star Seer: My dear, how do you know I have not gotten lost before?
  • Starlet: Do you get lost too?
  • (Star Seer nods and pats the empty branch by her side.)
  • Star Seer: You wanna come up to get a better view? But you have to change into light and dirt-proof clothing first.

Morning Star Edit

Story Stage Story Stage

A determined heart is the compass.

  • (Under the starry sky, night wind gently kisses the branches, making rustling sound in the quivering leaves.)
  • Starlet: Star Seer?! You are that powerful diviner? The book says divination can help people find the right direction. Is that true?
  • Star Seer: Of course.
  • Starlet: But you said you get lost too.
  • Star Seer: I did, but before I became a diviner.
  • Starlet: What happened?
  • Star Seer: Then I see the stars.
  • Starlet: Stars? What's special about the stars?
  • (Starlet looks at the night sky as Star Seer does.)
  • (The night sky is like a black curtain dotted with various stars arranged in a seemingly special rule. They shine different lights.)
  • Star Seer: Stars have their own rules. The brightness and position of a star may change all the time, but it changes in a certain way. So whenever you look up, you will know.
  • Starlet: But how does that help you find the way?
  • Star Seer: Have you heard about the morning star?
  • Starlet: Yes, it's the brightest star in the sky.
  • Star Seer: Yes, morning star always appears at the transition phase between day and night. It's always the brightest one in the sky, so you can never get mistaken.
  • Starlet: So... if I will not get lost when I find it?
  • Star Seer: Much more than that.
Garden Secret Starlet 2
  • (Star Seer takes out a crystal ball and hands it over to Starlet. It emits purple light and its inside are many stars, just like the night sky.)
  • (In the night wind, Star Seer's voice is ethereal and long.)
  • Star Seer: For a very long time, I was doing meaningless things. I actually had no idea what should I do.
  • Star Seer: It's like a cross. I didn't know where to go, and I didn't know if I should go on walking. My mind was lost, but the starry sky showed me another possibility.
  • Starlet: What possibility?
  • Star Seer: Stars don't get lost. Because stars have been moving since forever in its way, morning star shines forever and every star has its own way.
  • Star Seer: This, to us humans, is like a strong heart. It's really no big deal to not remember the road. There are many people who remember the road living their lives in a lost way.
  • Starlet: A strong heart... then you will not get lost?
  • Star Seer: With a strong heart, you will not get lost. Why so bothering over finding the correct way? Sometimes, getting lost will lead you to some special views. So don't be afraid.
  • Starlet: I never thought that way. Those are just the wrong roads to me.
  • Star Seer: When you have a direction in your heart, the road you walk is right.
  • Starlet: But, how to find the direction in your heart?
  • (Star Seer looks down at Starlet, smiling. Her eyes are lit up by the crystal ball, glittering like stars.)
  • Star Seer: If you like, we can find it together.
  • (At that moment, Starlet's heart seems to be bitten by a small bug, a little numb, but with a feeling very special.)
  • (Something seems to have been blown into her heart, blowing away the thick fog that lingers within for so long.)
  • (Like a ray of light shines into a dark cave, and all the cold and damp things disappear.)
  • (Starlet seems to understand the meaning of morning star. She nods and laughs.)
  • Starlet: Yes.
