(Notice the reaction of the main female character in white)
Note: This is part III of Little Dragon Girl.
The story continues at the beginning of last Christmas when my little guy was admitted to the hospital. He spent two weeks in the ICU with all sorts of large and small tubes stuck in to his body. It was not a pretty site. Naturally during this time, we had a lot visitors who came to comfort and care for us. I remember a mom who had a strong minded reputation couldn't help but to break down with a few tears. Among the ones that my little guy wanted to see of course was his little dragon girl. Her mom didn't allowed her to come since she was afraid that little dragon girl at a tender young age couldn't grasp the severity of the condition. She was protecting her daughter from seeing her little buddy in such grim condition. Little dragon girl however insisted on coming and wanting to see our little guy. Her mom later shared with us that she even got mad at her mom for not permitting her to see the helpless little boy lying in the hospital bed. Little dragon girl always had an affinity of feeding our little guy. My son is a good eater and would eat just about anything you put close to his mouth. One of his favorite food was cake. Little dragon girl came prepared to the hospital, wanting to see him and hopefully get to cheer him up with a few spoon feeds. However, the doctor and nurses didn't allow it but even before then, little dragon girl did breakdown and left the hospital room with her mom. It was a touching scene of how innocent yet strong deep and meaningful friendships are, even at there tender young age. My son is lucky to have friends that care so much.

Note: This is part II of Little Dragon Girl.
No... my little guy was not chased by any enemies, and obviously he is not an orphan. At best it is just me or his mom (his "arch enemy" at times) who chases after him for not cleaning up before a meal or not flushing his potty after his number 2. Picking up where we left off from the story, my little guy met his Little dragon girl while he was being babysat by her mom. Instantly, little dragon girl and my son just seemed to click, but of course not in the way of the Condor hero trilogy but rather a brother and sister type relationship. For God's sake, it will be a real taboo that a three and half year old falling for a twelve year old. In fact not a taboo but downright weird. Molly is her name and she is a pretty long hair and big eye twelve year old girl who has a sunshine smile. They do share unforgetable stories together. This is one of the stories. My son for some reason is afraid of pine cones. Yes pines cones! He somehow picked up the fear for pine cones and we had no idea when, why and where he started being fearful for these little Chirstmas tree like ornaments. We found out about this fear when we took him out to our future church building site that had acres of pine trees. Naturally with pine trees come pine cones. These little cones were all over the grass field. My son saw these cones and refused to walk or even moved until he saw, you guess it right, Little dragon girl. Little dragon girl would call out his name and somehow he would forget where he was at and ran towards her. This part does resemble a bit of the Condor hero trilogy where the two main characters were separated when fleeting from their enemies, but somehow they always found each other again. That "found each other again" moment is the same type of moment my little boy seemed to have when he heard little dragon girl calling his name. We later found out through little dragon girl why my little boy had such phobia towards pine cones--they looked like doo-doos to him. Spiky little brown doo-doos all over the grassfield. Nowadays when we go to this new church site, little dragon girl would have to carry him about. My son is closing in to 40 lbs and she is at most 80 to 90 pounds. She would carry him all over the site making sure his fear is calm and that is the reason why we call her his "little dragon girl". She somehow always rescues him from being "chased" by his "enemies"--those doodoo like pinecones.
Stay tuned for more on my son's little dragon girl.

There is a popular Chinese novelist by the name of Jing Yong. He is a great writer and has become an Asian equivalent to Shakepeare minus a few degrees.
Shakespeare had Romeo and Juliet, Jing Yong had the Condor Hero trilogy. An epic story with the backdrop of factual Chinese History blended with adventure, romance and suspense. This is where we get the name little dragon girl. Little dragon girl was a character that appeared during the second part of this epic trilogy. She was the heroine who helped train and rescue a little abandoned boy. She first appeared in the story as an stoic teen who was forced to somehow rescue an abandoned boy whom was chased by his enemies. Being several years his senior, she initially became his martial art master. But as both grew older, that relationship blossomed toward a Romeo and Juliet type relationship which was considered to be a taboo by the ancient chinese culture of the time.
More to come.... of my son's little dragon girl.

This is a great show, and in fact it is one of my all time favorites. Ah..take a sip of coffee and sometimes we can't help but to reminisce our own wonder years. Fond memories of the past jump in and out of our thoughts. This is where the next series of stories begins.
Although being only three going on thirty, my son's wonder years are the present. This little guy has developed quite an attachment to a much older girl. She too is quite fond of him as well. In fact, for my little boy's two year old birthday party, she gave him a stuff dog which he later named it, Molly OG. Molly's family helped babysit and it was that time onward the friendship blossomed.
Stay tuned for more...
