Now that the Tang Monk and his disciples have departed, we shall talk about that koi. All the training is now complete, and the koi is on top of the water wondering and looking around. Suddenly, a scent drifts over. “What is that aroma? Let me go check it out. Let me go and find out!”
Why are we talking about this scent that the koi has smelled? Well, because the Tang Monk is the reincarnation of a celestial golden fairy. He has been eating lots of vegetables since his birth, so his body smells pretty divine, and even his fecal matter, bodily waste smells good and doesn’t stink!
As the koi moves around in the water, she smells something that is fragrant and delightful. “Hey, it must be some kind of delicious food. Let’s go check it out. Hey, this is incredible!”
Wow, this is some good stuff! Well, this is something that we have all known since the dawn of time, which is that fish likes to eat crap! You see, people keep pigs in the upstreams, right? The pigs’ excrement is washed down the stream, and fish down there then gets all fat and plump, so fat from eating all that crap. Speaking of that koi, the thing that she has spotted is like when we see a piece of chicken, duck, or pork. Yap, it looks mighty tasty to the koi, and she quickly gobbles it up.
The koi starts to sweat after eating it. “Wow, my body is in unspeakable pain. Why is this happening? Wow, this is really upsetting, and I am getting quite worried.”
The koi jumps and leaps with pain, with her whole body in extreme agony. (“Oh my, I am in so much pain!”) She then passes out on the ground. “What has happened! I really don’t understand!”
I must pull it together, oh my goodness! Let’s see…I look down and am completely baffled. What is this? Why has this happened? What has happened to my body? Why is it looking this way? What is going on? What caused this?
Why has my tail become this way, and the top is now looking like this! Everything has changed! The bottom half is pale and pretty like that of a young girl, and the top half looks like an old granny. Oh, poor me! Feeling sad, I begin to weep.
I then look down to take a closer look, and my heart is overcome with grief. What has caused this? I really don’t understand. What should I do now? What should I do with this? It then suddenly comes to me that this is probably because I only ate half of that food I had earlier.
I am so sad and concerned that I now look like this. This is really not a good look.
Let us now talk about something else. Do you know the Tortoise God? He’s an important celestial officer.
