The Dragon’s Eye
Once upon a time, there was this dude called Black Cui, and he was like, really poor. He lived in the mountain, and he made a living walking around with her tools and stuff, repairing bowls and pots fo’ the peeps.
One day, he saw a baby dragon, and bein’ the totally nice man that he was, he fed it. Eventually the dragon was too big for the box, so he put it in his house. But in a few years, the dragon was too big for the house, so Black Cui moved the dragon to a cave in the north.
Anyway, a year later, a ginseng plant grew in front of the cave, and errybody wanted to pick it. The thing is, errybody knew there was a dragon guardin’ it, and so they were scared shitless and didn’t dare get it. The magistrate wanted it, too, and he asked Black Cui if he could get the ginseng.
“Oh yeah, if you don’t get it, I’ll cut off your head,” the magistrate said, which had Black Cui really worried.
Black Cui climbed up to the cave and said to the dragon, “Dude, you gotta let me have the ginseng - if not the magistrate is gonna cut my head off!” The dragon nodded and Black Cui grabbed the ginseng and handed it to the magistrate. Then, the magistrate gave it to the Emperor.
Later, the Empress was like, so going blind. They got all the best doctors and shiz to cure her, but nothin’ happened. Soon, the Empress became blind, which was real sad. The Emperor had heard that a dragon’s eye could cure blindness, but now the dragon was so huge that no one could defeat it. So he heard that Black Cui had gotten the ginseng, and called on him again. He said, “Dude, get me the dragon’s eye and you will be made a minister. If not, you’ll be executed, yo.”
So Black Cui was really scared because he had to take a dragon’s eye, but he did it anyway ‘cause he didn’t want to be executed, and being a minister sounded pretty sweet ‘cause it meant havin’ money. Anyway, when he got up to the mountain, he asked the black dragon, “Dude! The Empress is sick and she needs your left eye to recover, so can you give that to me? If I don’t get it, I might die.”
The dragon nodded its head again, and Black Cui cut out the dragon’s eye. It cried a li’l after that was done, and Black Cui went back to the court.
Black Cui handed the eye to the Emperor, who rubbed it against his wife’s left eye. She could see again! He did the same to her right eye, and she was well. The Emperor was like, so happy and shiz, he made Black Cui a minister. Black Cui became mean and arrogant, and he didn’t give a f*** about anybody. He stole errybody’s treasures, stuff like that.
Then he remembered that the dragon’s eyes was a treasure, and since he so couldn’t take the eye from the Emperor, he went to the dragon to ask for the other eyes. He marched into the came and was all, “Hey dragon! Lemme have yo’ other eye! I’m like yo’ dad, I raised you and shiz, and I deserve it!”
The dragon didn’t say nothin’, but when Black Cui moved closer to the dragon to cut out its eye, the dragon opened its mouth and ate him.
