Asia Tao and The Essence of the Dragon 2.1

Chapter 2
2.1 The Other Guy: Fatal Attraction

The sun peeked through the blinds in Asia’s room signifying the coming of morning. It was early and Asia could feel the heat of the sun on her face as she lay in her bed. She had barely gotten any sleep. Thoughts of her conservation the night before with Jerry  lingered on her mind. She and Jerry had talked for hours and they had made a date for Saturday night. Asia couldn’t wait to go to school and tell Soo Yun about Jerry. Then she remembered Chris, how he fell from that building and died. She had just met Chris and he was gone just like that. She had to figure out how and why he was killed. Asia stared up at the ceiling and took a deep breath. Okay Asia its time to get up, she said to herself.

She stumbled out of the bed and into the bathroom. She fumbled around with the toothpaste and finally managed to get some on her toothbrush. Asia started to brush her teeth as her vision started focus she glanced in the mirror. Ahhh! She screamed. She didn’t have a reflection, she couldn’t see herself Asia was invisible. Okay Asia don’t panic she spoke aloud frantic. There’s no way I can go to school like this! She yelled. Her aunt ran down the hallway peeking in every room screaming Asia where are you! In the bathroom aunt Angela she said. What? Where? Her aunt asked confused. I’m right here I’m invisible! Asia cried. Just calm down and take a deep breath her aunt said calmly. Asia started to relax and her hands appeared. Then Asia’s arms reappeared, her body came back into view part by part. Now get dressed you’re going to be late for school her aunt warned. I hope nothing weird happens at school today, I would hate to have to explain burning hands or being invisible she thought. But little did Asia know someone finding out about her powers would be the least of her worries today.

Another person was having a rather eventful morning too. He woke up to smell of perfume and the visions of a beautiful girl. He had the funny feeling he knew her but he had never met her before. He could see her, he could smell her, he could taste her lips, and he could even feel her. He felt this keen almost fanatical attraction to her. He knew he had to meet her, he knew he had to have her. It was like he was an animal that was on her trail, he was the predator and she was the prey. Why her? He wondered. There had to be a connection to her and what was happening to him. He hurried to the bathroom to get a shower. This had to be another power he thought because he undoubtedly knew for some reason that his senses would lead him right to her, to the girl of his dreams.

Chapter 2 2.13 The Other Guy: Fright Night
“I have no idea what I’m going to wear.” Asia said as she and her aunt entered the house. “You sound like you like this guy.” Her aunt said. “What? No way.” Asia replied shaking her head. “But he is cute and I don’t know for sure he killed those kids so I think I should look good just in case.” She added as she plopped down on the couch. “Just in case?” her aunt asked as she sat down next to her. “Yeah just in case he isn’t crazy and he wants a second date.” Asia said. “You like him!” her aunt exclaimed. “Asia you better be careful evil is often cunning and charming.” Her aunt added. “What do you mean by that?” Asia asked. “I mean don’t be fooled by a cute face.” Her aunt replied sternly as she got up and headed to the kitchen. Asia began to wonder, am I falling for this guy? She wondered how much of this attraction had to do with actually liking Giovanni and how much was a side effect of the medallion.
“Aunt Angela I’m going upstairs to do my h…

Chapter 3 3.1 Hero’s and Villain’s: Push
“It’s that necklace isn’t it?” Giovanni yelled as he snatched the necklace from Asia’s throat. “I have powers, do you have them too?” he asked as he stared at the necklace in his hand. Asia did not know how to reply so she just remained silent. Giovanni turned to look at her. “Please, answer me I feel like I’m losing my mind.” He begged.
Asia looked into his big puppy dog eyes and began to feel sorry for him. “Yes, I have powers too.” Asia sighed. “And there because of the necklace.” She added. “Can we get out of my driveway now?” she asked. “Look I don’t want my aunt coming outside lets just continue this date and I promise I will explain.” Asia said. Giovanni was in a daze. He did not move a muscle or speak he just stared out he window. “Giovanni!” Asia yelled.
Giovanni’s lips began to curve into a mischievous grin. “Yeah okay.” He said as he started the car. “So I’m not insane? I have powers?” he asked as he pulled out of the driveway.

“What should I wear to this high profile social event?” Camilla asked. “Don’t worry I’ll have my stylist send something over to the house for you.” Alejandro said as he skimmed through the menu. “Do you know what you want to eat yet?” Alejandro asked as he looked up from his menu. “No, just order me one of whatever you get.” Camilla said. “Okay.” Alejandro replied as he waved over the waiter. The waiter walked up to the table with a huge smile on his face. “Yes sir how may I help you?” The waiter asked. “Let me get two orders of the Gnocchi di ricotta and an order of Focaccia.” Alejandro said. “Yes sir anything to drink?” the waiter asked. “Let me get a bottle of that 1990 Romanee-Conti we just got in.” He replied. “Yes sir.” The waiter said as he took their menus, bowed and walked away. “That a very expensive bottle of wine.” Camilla said. “I know I’m trying to impress you.” Alejandro replied with a smile. Camilla smiled and began to blush. “Is it wor…

Chapter 2 2.13 Faith: Could This Be Love?
Kash went to the limo where Jessica was in the backseat crying. He could hear her outside the limo and he hesitated opening the door. He felt horrible about trying to force the situation. He had only made things worse. Kash was starting to think that Jessica was right her family hadn’t really changed they just saw an opportunity to use her. He got this weird vibe from her mother and sister he couldn’t put his finger on it but they both rubbed him the wrong way. Kash slowly opened the limo door and got in. He wrapped his arms around Jessica as she cried. “I’m sorry.” He said. “I was wrong it wasn’t my place to interfere I just saw how hurt you were and I wanted to help.” He added. Jessica wiped her eyes and choked back her emotions enough to speak. “Don’t you ever speak to me like I’m a child again.” She said sternly as she looked him in the eyes. “And you are right it wasn’t your place to interfere, you have no idea the crap those two put me thr…
