Last time Asparagus met Adaeze Min and fell in love deeply.
Their chemistry was undeniable but Asparagus probably ruined his chances by being too fast.

Can Asparagus save his love story and the village of Shang Simla too?

Last time Asparagus met Adaeze Min and fell in love deeply.
Their chemistry was undeniable but Asparagus probably ruined his chances by being too fast.

Can Asparagus save his love story and the village of Shang Simla too?
Asparagus walked to the deck as he wanted to be alone for a moment.
He felt extremely stupid.
He was never afraid of anything, more danger the merrier, and now he was afraid of one woman!
It sounded as pathetic as it was.

Asparagus saw Adaeze coming out again to get her bag she had forgotten.
This was his chance.
All or nothing!

- Adaeze!

Adaeze frowned when she heard his voice but when Asparagus kept on calling her she walked to him without much enthusiasm.

- What is it? I thought that I told you to not talk to me ever again...
- I am sorry about what happened yesterday night.
- You already told me that... If that is all you have to say...
- You misunderstood me. I am not sorry about trying to kiss you, I am sorry about not kissing you properly.
And Asparagus kissed her.
When Adaeze felt his lips on her own lips she was so stunned she couldn't do anything.
And she didn't want to do anything.
She wanted him to kiss her again.
Which was what Asparagus did.
And when he was done he left Adaeze standing alone, bewildered.
Asparagus went straight to the Dragon Cave.
He was finally ready to encounter any possible danger even if his Sim Fu skills were not high enough.
After all he had tamed the shrew and after that achievement he was ready for anything.
The Dragon Cave's door was opened easily and Asparagus saw that it led to a steep valley.
There was stairway leading underground and Asparagus started to climb down the stairs carefully.
He arrived to a big hall that had stone statues on the both sides of the stairway.
There were also two small pools with waterlilies in them.

Asparagus could hear nothing and after he had checked for hidden traps he walked to a door on the other side of the hall.
- Hello buddy... You look like you have been sitting there for a long time...

Asparagus collected the ancient coins and kept walking towards the end of the hallway.
Near the big door Asparagus noticed something strange about the wall. After a quick inspection he was able to say it was a door. Asparagus pulled the door open and found the most beautiful vase he had ever seen and some cut gems. Then Asparagus opened the big door and stepped to the great room.
The firetraps were already activated and Asparagus saw there was something behind them.
And then Asparagus saw what it was and his jaw dropped.

A mummy fighting with a ghost!

Asparagus wasn't sure if they had really been there but after a moment he decided to go through the room to see if there were any clues about what he had just seen.

He didn't find much, mostly gems and some valuable relics but he did find a locked door he couldn't open at all.
There had to be a key somewhere.
- Mr. Garden, thank you for delivering these news... This is indeed very serious... Our village is in great danger, but there is nothing you can do yet. Luckily we do have some time left, I will call for you when I know more about this. Here is your upgraded visa, and an envelope too... When the lady had mentioned his visa, Asparagus realized his current visa was expiring in less than twelve hours.

And there was one place he had to visit before he would return home.
- Excuse-me Mister, but what do you think you are doing?
- Oh, I am very sorry about sneaking around like this but is this the Min residence?
- Yes, this is the Min residence. May I ask you why you are here at this time of day?
- I am looking for Adaeze... Are you her sister?
- No, I am her friend and roommate. And you are?
- Asparagus Garden...
- Come in.
- What are you doing here?
- I had to see you before I go. Adaeze, I know we haven't known for a long time and our start didn't go very well either but... I love you
- Oh, Asparagus...
- I am leaving soon but I want to know before I go home if you could someday consider me as your boyfriend.
- Asparagus...
- I know this comes probably too soon but I don't have any more time and I need to know. I don't know when I am coming back but if you could wait for me...
- Asparagus, I love you too but you are younger than I am and you are going away. Do you really want to chain yourself?
Before Adaeze could think of any other excuses, Asparagus kissed her. When they were sleeping peacefully, Adaeze thought that she had finally found her home in Asparagus' arms.

Asparagus on the other hand thought that how was he going to tell the truth to Adaeze.
How could he ever tell her that he didn't even have a house?
In Shang Simla he was a hero but in Garden Valley he was a poor potato peeler who slept on the park benches.
As he felt Adaeze's warm body close to him, Asparagus decided that it was time to go and beg for a promotion. He had peeled enough potatoes and if he was ever going to start a family with Adaeze, he would need money.
A lot more of it.
Asparagus didn't bear to wake Adaeze from her peaceful sleep so he just watched her sleep and tried to remember every single detail of her face so he could cherish those memories in Garden Valley.
He didn't want to go but he had to, even if every step he took towards the door broke his heart into tiny pieces.
- So your lover has finally left?
- What do you mean?
- I thought you promised to stay faithful to my late brother's memory!
- Huang has been dead for years! And I have lived as if I was his widow for all those years but I never was his widow... I love Asparagus and I am going to live again.
- I never thought you would be so fickle, Adaeze... And to think why he died!
- Don't think I don't remember! How could I forget?! But Huang never wanted me to waste my life as I have done for years...
- You are not the Adaeze I know...
- Maybe not, but she is gone for ever, as is Huang. I will not discuss this any longer. If you are unhappy about my choice you can always go and find yourself an another roommate...
- Where are you going?
- I will go to Garden Valley.
Back in Garden Valley Asparagus' hard work finally paid off in the form of promotion. This new position required much more work than potato peeler's job but it also paid better.
As tired Asparagus was, he always did his best. After all he had less time to miss Adaeze and the more money he had sooner he could start building a house.
In the meanwhile, when Asparagus wasn't working, he was building up his skills needed for another promotion. Sometimes he would call Adaeze just to hear her soft voice. Besides, he needed some advice with his Sim Fu training. He had brought a training dummy from Shang Simla so he could practice at home as well. He hadn't got much better but he had to keep it up so he wouldn't forget everything he had learnt.
And it reminded him of Adaeze too.
Thinking of Adaeze made Asparagus always sad.
He wasn't sure if he would ever be financially able to marry her as he wouldn't be able to support a family with his current income.
And Asparagus knew that Adaeze wanted to have a big, luxurious home and money that could be spent on things she liked.
Not that she was a gold digger of any kind! No, she wanted to earn money too, which wasn't possible in the village of Shang Simla where women were supposed to take care of the home and children.
Asparagus wanted to provide Adaeze with everything she yearned for but he wasn't sure if he would be able to do it.
A private wedding in Champs les Sims might be just a part of his daydream.
But Asparagus did his best to earn that new promotion he needed so badly.
Once he had spent time in library to impress the ladies but now he didn't want to impress anyone except Adaeze.
- Garden, it's DeMayo again.
- What is it? Do they want me to go to Shang Simla again?
- No, you are going to Al Simhara and you are leaving in two hours, get ready.

Asparagus sighed.
He missed Shang Simla so badly.
