The possible loss of Middle
East Town would seriously upset the overall military
balance, so top intelligent I
Ching master Zhuge Liang decided to send the troops
to help hold the line, while evacuating all civilians and
veteran military personnel from Port City where a branch
of intelligence headquarter once situated.
When the forces led by Sima Yi, the
biggest villain at the time, arrived at Port City to
unfold a full scale assault, they only found what awaited
them was not a military station but a five star hotel,
completed with trainee cleaners and a veteran musician.
Thus Sima Yi ordered to pull out the troops.
But his crew believed it was Zhuge Liang's trick. "You
can outwit him, boss," they urged.
"Can I?" the boss sighed, "What
do you reckon I am? I was trained
in lip-service and have worked for all my life lip serving
others but nothing else, unlike Zhuge Liang who can play
chess, play piano, play sword, play I Ching, play witchcraft,
plus ride horse, sail jets and drive helicopters, how can
I play intelligence with this top intelligent guy?"
"But when you self-recommended for the
position of commander-in-chief, you said you can."
"No, I said WE CAN, and since my expertise
is to provide professional lip-service, you should know I
said that on other people's behalf."
Sima Yi: O-Bah-Ma-aaaa-ammy,
which bastards tricked me into canceling so and so's passport
to give Zhuge Liang an excuse to get someone indefinitely "stuck" in
that empty Port City beyond my reach?
