His movements are conspicuous, we don’t know what he looks like Except that we sense a fishy smell in the air An immortal would not eat humans That’s right, it has to be a demon The woman priest we saw looks like a demon WuKong, have you thought of anything? I can’t think of anything off top of my head I…I’m not that bright How about you, Sandy? I can’t think of anything – Got it! – What? I…I forgot Dummy It’s actually very simple Me and brother monkey will wait on the platform When the demon comes, we will just kill him The demon wants kids, if he sees you two it wouldn’t approach Me and Pigsy can transform into a boy and a girl, and lure out the demon, then kill him No, no My ability to fight will decrease if I transform I might get eaten by the demon You’ve still got me You should at least try, Pigsy I can’t change into a girl, only rocks or bowls Master! Don’t be fooled, he can do 36 transformations Fine, I will try Change! I told you WuKong, give him a hand Alright Idiot, let me help Stomach Ear Check it out Change! It’s almost midnight, where are they? Maybe they are already here, just hiding from us Where? Don’t frighten me! Here they are! Maybe they are afraid of us Brother Monkey, he’s here The girl’s voice is so deep Sorry we have kept you waiting Do you need help covering your eyes? It’s okay. Are you going for head first or the leg? Let us know I will eat all at once Great! Open your month and I will go in Hurry, I’m getting impatient A tail? It’s more for you! Maybe I will go for the girl first No, I don’t taste good. Maybe you should eat him first Change! Oh no, I forgot the spell

I made a loud noise, and then the demon kicked me You’re awesome! Amazing! I defeated the demons Brother Monkey was listening to me Pigsy, you can’t stay in this form I forgot the spell last night and couldn’t change back How are you going to carry out the responsibilities?
