[thd] [china] some people learn to dance. [yin]

others are born to it.


The summer was rapidly coming to it's end and Zhijian was starting to freak out only just a little. They had spent so much time this year worrying about the state of things at Durmstrang that it almost felt surreal to be going back to Koldovstoretz for the coming term. Returning to the school he had grown up in was a welcome relief to the harsh reality of Durmstrang but it wasn't without its disappointments too. Zhijian had met Miki at Durmstrang and going back to his home school meant he wouldn't be able to see her quite as often. It made him sad to think he wouldn't be able to eat lunches with her or study late into the evening like they had begun to. Other things he would miss made him ache as well but he tried to push down those teenage emotions and keep his composure. He knew he could write her all the time so at least there was that. And maybe he could even convince his parents to let him visit her village again during the holidays. Zhijian wanted to spend every waking moment with his girlfriend but life was keeping him from being able to do that. And life always had to go on.

Walking stiffly through the damp crowded streets of Shanghai Zhijian kept his chin up, back straight, and eyes focused. They had to buy their schools supplies today and naturally the wizarding alley off of Nanjing Road was the only place to go. Much like it's British equivalent Diagon Alley the wizarding shopping district of Nanjing had everything a witch or wizard could need. It was rainy this evening but Zhijian didn't mind it, the moisture and fog in the air reminded him of their home village high in the mountains and made him relax a little more. As they walked down the bustling street Zhijian tried not to stare at each and every brightly colored and lit up building, still fascinated by Muggle technology even to this day. He lead them timidly toward the Taikang Dumpling shop that housed the secret entrance to the magical portion of the shopping road but before they made it to the entrance something else happened.

Music began blaring from a weird black box someone was carrying on their shoulders, it had buttons and a handle and Zhijian stared at it while the upbeat techno music got his foot tapping. All around the two of them muggles began to break out into what seemed like a completely planned out dance routine. They swept their feet from side to side, swooped around, jumped in unison, and a crowd began to gather around them. First it was only a handful of muggles but soon enough all around Zhijian people began to join in the dance until he and Yin were the only ones standing still in the middle of this spontaneous mob.

"Yin what are the muggles doing?" He whispered to her, trying to remain calm but taking a protective side step toward his sister just in case things took a turn for the worst.

Staring at the crowd that was gathering beside them Zhi was still unsure whether he should be worried or laughing. He had heard of muggle diseases that spread very quickly throughout the population and maybe this was one of them. When Yin began to join them Zhijian's nerves went into over drive. "Yin wait," he tried to warn her off but it was already too late. She was infected and he had to get her out of the epicenter before it was too late. Moving closer to her he covered his mouth with the collar of his polo shirt and reached out for her hand. Before he was able to whisk her away though she was stopping of her own free will and soon Zhi's heart beat returned to a some what normal pace. "Are you feeling alright?" He asked after her as she began to push through the crowd and escape toward the dumpling shop. She dragged him toward the building and he rushed ahead to hold the door open for her properly before moving in himself. The glorious smell of greasy food hit his senses immediately and Zhijian led them to the counter so they could order. Speaking in his native tongue he ordered both of them some bat dumplings with a side of Kimchi. The Kimchi was real, and so were the bat dumplings, but it was the bat part that was the code word. Zhijian was handed a number and a tray and he took the familiar route to the back of the diner to find the table that matched his number.

Sliding into the little booth he folded his hands on top of the table, the restaurant to the left of him and the napkins and wall to his right. He looked around and waited for her to sit down before pressing down on the glowing number at the end of the table. By magic the table seemed to spin around like a carnival ride bringing them to the opposite side of the wall. It was almost like they were a mirror reflection of where they were just moments ago and the magic made him feel a little queasy. Gaining his orientation and center of gravity back as he turned to the opposite side as before to look out into the restaurant. Now firmly in the magical part of Nanjing Road he was pleased to see the plat of bat dumplings and kimchi headed there way by a witchy waitress. He was as patient as a plum but his stomach had other plans in mind. Nodding his head in gratitude when the witch placed the tray on their table he spoke up lightly. "Could we also get two pumpkin juices please?" The waitress nodded in return and walked away from them quietly as he turned his attentions back to his sister.

"Do you have your supply list with you? May I see it?"

"Yes I've got it." He replied to her with a warm smile, knowing she was looking for any leg up she might be able to get on him. She was a little tiger and she always kept him on his toes but he loved her for it. "Mother and Father wanted me to make sure you buy all of the things on your list, and nothing that is not on the list, like the fireworks last year." He gave her another knowing look before taking a bit of his food and then pulling his list from his pocket. "I'll need to go to the cauldron shop for a new size, do you need cleaning supplies?" He asked before taking a look over her list and moving around uncomfortably in the lumpy cushioned seat of the booth. Zhijian was uncomfortable in his own skin most days, his bones ached, his muscles were tense, his mother said it was just growing pains though.

Before he could return to telling her about what he needed and comparing their lists something started happening in the back of the shop. They were... singing. Horrified and completely humiliated as the group of singing waitresses and a particularly greasy looking chef began heading their way Zhijian honestly considered hiding under the table. It was not out of the realm of possibilities as the blush he was sporting crept past his cheeks and all the way to the tops of his ears. "What... why..." He complained, defeated and huffing.

"Congratulations on being the 500th customer to order a pumpkin juice!" One of the waitresses sang as she handed them both paper lantern hats that looked like Jack-O-Lanterns. Well, more like shoved them on top of their heads. Zhijian's hat was too small for him and it crushed his hair and made his eyes feel like they were bulging even though physically they weren't. "Um thanks." He said, still wanting to be proper but having a hard time holding it all together. He was sure Yin was going to have a thrill with this but he wanted to melt into the plastic fabric that lined the seat. If Miki was here she would of loved this, she always found the best in things. The waitress went on to to take their picture, a moving magical one popped out of the camera, and she used her wand to put it into the frame above the booth they were sitting at, much to Zhijian's dismay. They had won some sort of contest and now they were going to get free pumpkin juice for life, the picture was the proof, and he tried to smile.
