It was several months ago when Lulu Cat got ahold of her mango and tried to stand on him. After that she started to understand the meaning of Pirate Dog’s practice. With the practice, she felt a stronger and stronger calmness surrounding her. When she approached the yellow mango, he seemed to be affected by this profound calmness. She started to see and feel things in a clearer way. Through her contact with the mango, she sensed something nearby. She tried to see and to feel it more clearly, but she couldn’t. It was like there was a thick layer of mist and a long distance between her and the other presence.
With more practice, she felt the mist getting thinner and the distance becoming shorter. With more practice, she found that when she tried to stand on the mango, she was sensitive to the slightest movement. Sometimes, she even thought that the mango was helping her. When she was about to fall to the right, the mango would make a slight move to the left, so that Lulu Cat could find her balance and can keep up for a little longer each time. The practice was difficult, but she could now see she was progressing.
Lulu Cat had lost all track of time. It must be a long, long time ago when she arrived here. This day, as with every day, she went to the mango forest in the early morning, practiced doing nothing but observing for several hours, and then approached her yellow mango. Pirate Dog walked after her. He knew that this day would come, but he didn’t expect it to come so fast. Standing on a mango is an ancient master class practice, and only a very few creatures in the world have mastered it in all of history.
This time, Lulu Cat stood on her yellow mango. She was calm, happy and excited. “It’s time to tell her the truth,” he thought.
“Lulu,” Pirate Dog said. “The mango you’re standing on is a magic mango. It’s one of the magical and spiritual creatures in the land of dragons. The day you master the art of standing on a Magic Mango is the day that you are free. Today, you choose. You can choose to be with Laughing Cat or wander to wherever you want. This mango will take you to every single part of the world. He will guide you and protect you."
Lulu Cat was confused. She liked Laughing Cat. They had been very close for years, almost like mother and daughter. She didn’t want to be kidnapped by another creature and be brought to something unknown. But now, there was another option. She was strong, and she was free. She would love to fly back to the kingdom of wonders to see Samak, Phyrum, and the pink pig. But at the same time, she dreamt of visiting every single part of the world and doing whatever she wanted.
With the mango, she walked to the humble wooden hut and saw Laughing Cat. Yes, the spell was done. She was powerful enough now that no one would ever be able to take her away from Laughing Cat. But she choose to leave. Just the same as it was with Evil Cat, the world of her Aunty Laughing was too small for her. She wanted to see the bigger world. She wanted to be free.
Before she left, Pirate Dog shouted to her, “Don’t lose your pure heart.” That was what he had sensed that was special about Lulu Cat. “Only someone with a pure loving heart can be the master of the Magic Mango. If you lose your heart, the mango will leave you.”
“Bufa!” With Laughing Cat and Pirate Dog’s sights on them, Lulu Cat and the Magic Mango disappeared into the mists…
