The End of The World
It is a sunny day, everyone enjoys this wonderful weather and make a tour plan for the vacation. To abtain a deeper understanding about Chinese history and culture, Tom and Amy choose to go to Xi'an for a travel vacation.
They pack some clothes and lots of foods, because they choose to drive to Xi'an and it is a long way.Along the way is boring, Amy surf the internet to find travel guides of Xi'an, and learn something of its tourist attrctions. "Tom, do you know Big Wild Goose Pagoda, it is a mysterious place, there is a buddhist relics!" "OK, we can treat it as our first place to visit." "That is great!" Amy said happily. With the gentle music and beautiful weather, they are talking about the traveling along the way.
It is getting dark now, they decide to look for a hotel. For the long driving makes them tired, they fall asleep soon. "Boom, boom, boom." While they sleep, suddenly there are coming a thunder, Amy wake up with a start, get up and looking out of the window, it is raining heavily outside. But she dose not care the abnormal weather and go back to sleep. They continue to drive to Xi'an but the weather gets more and more bad. Luckily, they arrive at their destination the night before.
They stay at the hotel to have a good rest after treck. "Tom, the weather changes so fast!" "Yeah, it is so weried!" Tom says, as he turn on the TV.
"Oh, my gosh! What happened!" Amy scream.The TV shows news that some building collapsed and the ground sank in some places. They feel unbelievable and hope it was a joke. "Tom, please tell me it is just a dream!" "Now, Amy, calm down. we can not go out from the hotel, we have to stay in the room.Taking it easy and have a good rest." The next day is a chaotic day. Many people died because of the collapsed buildings. Tom and Amy dare not stay at the hotel so they stay at the car and look around watchfully. But Amy accidently fall asleep, even Tom's call do not awake her."Amy! Amy! Wake up!" Tom is anxious but can not do anything until Amy awakes. "Tom, do you remember the legend that I told you on the road about Big Wild Goose Pagoda? I have just had a dream, a bearded old man told me a secret. In the pagoda, there is an ancient jade under the box of buddhist relics, the jade can help human get through crisis. But we have to put it to the highest place of the world." said by Amy with excited. "I do not know whether it is ture, but I think we have to try it. The highest place may be Mount Qomolangma. Now we should go to the pagoda to find the jade." It is easier for them to find the jade because they have kown a lot abou the pagoda before the travel.
Trains and planes can not run, and they have to drive their own car to Lhasa and then go to Shigatse. The wild goose pagoda and Qomolangma mount are more than three thousand kilometers apart. Though they hope they can arrive the mount as soon as possible, the bad weather and the falling ground make their journey more difficult. Originally two and a half days' journey eventually spent six days. In the meanwhile, the radio broadcasts bad news all the time, an increasing number of people died. Amy and Tom is getting more anxious every minute.
They finally reach the foot of the mountain, then they have to climb to the mountain top and put the jade there. It is a very difficult thing to climb the mountain. They are half way up the mountain when Amy conk out and have to turn back. Tom goes on up with the jade. Suffering a series of setbacks, he finally succeed. When he put the jade in the zenith, a gust of find sends him flying and lets him down to the ground.
The weather soon turns into brilliant sunshine and warm temperatures. "We made it!" Tom yells at the top of the hill. Tears of joy flood Amy's eyes as she prays silently at the foot of the hill: "All will turn out well."
