Akiyo has decided to help Zhu on her farm while he recuperates. They stock up on all supplies so they can prepare for sailing to the hanging gardens.
They walk to her farm.
Zhu: If you don't want to you don't have to. I'll do it on my own.
Akiyo: It's okay I'll help. This will get to know you more.
Zhu: If you have any questions feel free to ask me.
Akiyo: How many piercings do you have?
Zhu: I have one on each ear, one on my nose, one my tongue, and somewhere else.
Akiyo: Where's the last one.
Zhu whispers in his ear.
Akiyo: Oh okay. Why do you always keep your hair short?
Zhu: I keep it short for safety reasons when I cook, so there's no accident.
Akiyo: Why are you so passive? How come you don't fight back?
Zhu: Papa raised me without violence, I do not fight unless my friends are hurt or told to do so.
Akiyo: Who were your parents?
Zhu: Papa was the nicest person ever. I learned all my cooking from him. I hate my mama on the other hand. She's very abusive and would beat me.
Akiyo: How did your parents meet.
Zhu: My mama was bored of the chefs in the underworld, so she decided to go to the earth and find a chef that struck her fancy. She admired my papas culinary skills and invited him to the underworld.
Akiyo: So your mom is the panda?
Zhu: No papa was. Mama was a demon.
Akiyo: What's your tattoo?
Zhu: Its bamboo and a blue lantern.
Akiyo: So why were you in the Sun yee on?
Zhu: It all started because of Ruomei. I found her when she was poor with her mother. Papa and I would make meals for her. After her mother died Li Jun forced her into Sun yee on as a prostitute. Then she worked her way up and I was recruited after Fenfang bullied me.
Akiyo: Any crimes?
Zhu: Prostitution and murder.
Akiyo: (surprised) You did both of those?
Zhu: Yes. Ruomei wasn't the only one forced into prostitution. I was too, along with Yuehai and Fenfang.
Akiyo: Why you three?
Zhu: Li Jun found me very attractive after all the weight I lost. He forced me into it. Yuehai was being bribed into things, and for Fenfang it was punishment for trashing my restaurant.
Akiyo: But the murder part I don't get.
Zhu: Oh that. I chose to do it after finding the man who killed papa.
Akiyo: Are these real?
Zhu: What are?
He gropes her chest.
Zhu: Of course they're real. Everything about me is natural. Why?
Akiyo: They're huge!
Zhu: Why does everybody questions me about that?
Akiyo: (nosebleed) I never seen them that big before.
Zhu: (giggling)(blushing) Oh stop you pervert.
Akiyo: So how do you keep your weight stable?
Zhu: I'm on a special diet that allows me to eat any food without gaining weight, and I can eat as much food as I want.
They arrive at the farm.
Zhu: Here's my farm.
Akiyo: That a lot of land!
Zhu: I'm sure you're good with animals.
Akiyo: I know just about everything. I love animals.
Zhu: I'm going to start you off with the chicken coop. Just get a basket and collect the eggs. Then clean them. I'm going to milk the cows.
Akiyo: Got it.
Zhu: If you need anything just ask.
He goes to the chicken coop and collects the eggs.
Akiyo: That's a lot of eggs.
He feeds the chickens and heads to the river to clean the eggs.
Akiyo: (in thought) I haven't been in a farm in a long time. I had no idea Zhu had one.
He cleans all the eggs.
Akiyo: I'm sure she goes fishing.
He uses water techniques and pulls fish out the water.
Akiyo: That should be enough fish.
He heads back to Zhu.
Zhu: Already done?
Akiyo: Yes. All the eggs are picked and cleaned. And I fed the chickens and caught you some fish.
Zhu: Akiyo that means so much to me. Thank you so much.
Akiyo: Do you need any water or anything?
Zhu: I do need water in those barrels.
Akiyo uses water techniques into the barrel.
Zhu: You are so lucky. I can't do that. I can only use fire and wind.
Akiyo: By the way, what did you, Yuehai and Li Juan say about me?
Zhu: Yuehai said you are very handsome and well mannered despite your perverted behavior. Li Juan has a thing for you too.
Akiyo: She my girlfriend now.
Zhu: What?! Don't you have Tomiko as a girlfriend?
Akiyo: We're all animals anyways. So it shouldn't matter.
Zhu: Good point.
Akiyo: What did you say about me?
Zhu: (giggling) That's for me to know and you to find out.
Akiyo: Don't be like that.
Zhu: I said you are very captivating. I actually feel like a lady around you.
Akiyo: Oh okay.
Zhu: Now I wanna ask you something.
Akiyo: Go ahead.
Akiyo: Do be shy tell me.
Zhu: I know I have to obey you, but please be nice and gentle with me. (blushing) I'll do anything you want but please don't hurt me. (crying) I really want to trust you.
Akiyo: Relax. I'm not going to hurt you. I only was rough on Ruomei because she got out of hand. Just trust me okay.
Akiyo: I actually like women like you. You're very cooperative and soft spoken.
Zhu: (happy) Thanks.
Akiyo feels an evil aura.
Akiyo: Zhu you should leave.
Zhu: What's the matter?
Akiyo: There's another carnage coming.
Zhu: Akiyo no. Hisoka said no fighting.
Akiyo: I don't think you can handle him.
Zhu steps in front of him.
Zhu: I'm trusting in you, so you should trust in me too.
Li Qin: Are you the one that killed Li Jun?
Akiyo: Yeah I was one of them.
Li Qin: I'm going to kill you.
Akiyo: For what?
Li Qin: That was my brother.
Akiyo: I'm sorry for your loss, but he had to die.
Li Qin: That's it? That's all you have to say?!
He walks towards Zhu.
Li Qin: Move bitch.
Zhu: Could you please not call me that? I don't like that word.
Li Qin: I said move.
Zhu: I would really appreciated if you would leave the farm. Pa doesn't like trespassers.
Li Qin: I said move.
He hits her.
Akiyo: (angry) You keep her out of this! She hasn't done anything wrong!
Li Qin chokes her.
Zhu: Please leave.
Li Qin: And I said move bitch.
He punches her in the face.
Zhu: Li Qin, please stop causing me trouble. I'm being very nice and gentle with you.
Li Qin: Just get back to work you damn whore. I don't need you slacking off.
Zhu: (annoyed) Watch your mouth Li Qin. You know what I'm capable of. Now please get off my farm.
Li Qin: No! He dies first!
Zhu: I'll take care of him for you then.
Akiyo: Zhu! Are you serious?!
Zhu: (seducing) I'll even give you some overtime at the brothel if you behave. We can do whatever you want as long as you want.
Li Qin: (blushing)(irritated) Alright! Alright! Just kill him! I don't care how long it takes!
Zhu: We can go to my house. Lets go.
Akiyo: (annoyed) Whatever.
Zhu: Akiyo just relax. I'm not going to kill you obviously.
Akiyo: (annoyed) I wanted to fight him.
Zhu: Hisoka said no. Just give me a chance and let me take care of him okay?
Akiyo: (annoyed) Fine.
They go in her house.
Zhu: I'm taking a bath. You can wait until I'm done.
She goes into the bathhouse and takes a bath.
Akiyo starts peeping on her.
Zhu: (giggling) I know you're peeping.
Akiyo: (lying) No I'm not.
Zhu: (giggling) Seriously Akiyo? I'm from the circle of lust. And you're a boy so why wouldn't you?
Akiyo: Okay you got me.
Zhu: All you had to do was ask to come in with me.
Akiyo: You wouldn't have gotten mad?
Zhu: (laughing) No. I'm a prostitute anyways. So many guys have seen me naked.
Akiyo: (blushing) Wanna bathe together?
Zhu: I'd love to.
They bathe together.
Akiyo: Can you really handle him?
Zhu: Yes. I'm not going to fight him physically. I'm doing it mentally.
Akiyo: You can do that?
Zhu: He easily gets tempted by women. Just trust me okay?
Akiyo: So who is he?
Zhu: He's Li Jun's younger brother, and my soon to be ex boyfriend.
Akiyo: He's your boyfriend?
Zhu: After tonight he wont be. I'm tired him hitting me and treating me like a call girl. So I'm going to kill him.
They finish bathing.
Zhu: Are you hungry?
Akiyo: May I have something to eat please?
Zhu: (smiling) Of course.
They get dressed and she starts cooking.
Akiyo: So what are you making?
Zhu: (smiling) It's a surprise. I've never made this before.
Zhu: Nope not even my boyfriend. I don't even cook for him anymore.
She continues cooking.
Akiyo: You are cooking al these dishes so fast. Why so many meals?
Zhu: All that is for me. This is my diet.
Akiyo: This is a really healthy diet, but so much food. But where's mine though?
Zhu: It's already being cooked in the baker.
She finishes cooking her meals.
Akiyo: (confused) Huh?
Zhu: What's the matter?
Akiyo: You cooked my meal first but yours finished first.
Zhu: Yours take more time since I'm baking and never made it before. Mine is really easy because I eat these meals all the time.
Akiyo: It's making your body look good in all the right places.
Zhu: (blushing)(smiling) Oh stop. You are such a heartthrob.
Akiyo: (teasing) Maybe I should stop.
Zhu: (flirting) Maybe you should keep going.
She pulls Akiyo's meal out the baker.
Zhu: (smiling) I hope you like it.
He eats it.
Akiyo: This is really amazing. Is this salmon?
Zhu: It is, with white rice. Eating the lemon slices are edible too.
Akiyo: (crying)(happy) This is so good.
Zhu: It was really a pleasure making your meal.
Akiyo: This is the best dish I've ever had.
Zhu continues eating.
Akiyo: (in thought) How much food can she eat? I never really thought how cute a girl would look just by eating.
Zhu: Phew I'm done.
Akiyo: How many dishes was that?
Akiyo: 30 dishes?! That's a lot of food.
Zhu: I am a panda so I eat a lot. I could eat a lot more than that if I wanted to.
Akiyo: You could win any food contest you wanted to.
Zhu: That's how I get some of my money.
She leaves the house.
Zhu: Can you do me a favor Akiyo? Can you do the dishes for me please?
Akiyo: Sure I'll take care of them. Be safe okay?
Zhu: I promise.
She kiss him on the cheek and leaves.
