This is the story of a special peach that could walk and talk like a human.
He happily roamed the countryside in China where he found a mango friend.

One windy day in Northwest China, when Shu-sai-chong (which means 'Happy all his life' in Chinese) became a ripe peach and fell from the peach tree in the fruit orchard.
He landed very softly on his feet, unharmed.
Shu had enjoyed his warm sunny growing season, and as he ripened he developed a lot of features similar to that of a happy, fat, young boy.
He had arms and legs, a nose, a mouth, eyes, and ears. This made him look human.

Shu leapt onto the back of the wagon that contained the baskets of peaches to be sold at the market.
When the wagon reached the city and slowed down due to heavy traffic, Shu jumped off without being seen by the crew.
It was a hot windy day so he was very thirsty; however he was able to fill himself with water from a drinking fountain.
On getting to the market in the city he saw something unusual. One of the mangoes to be sold had a similar human form to him; however she was a girl.
Her name was Meili (which means 'Beautiful' in the Mandarin language) and she was very pretty.

They exchanged glances, she came up to Shu and asked "What is your name and what are you?"
He replied "I am a peach and my name is Shu."
She responded that her name was Meili and she was a mango.
They got along right away, becoming friends.
Shu suggested that they leave the city and go to see the countryside; Meili agreed.
The next morning, at dawn when everyone was asleep, they left the city and went out of town.
After a long walk they got to a park where they rested.
They listened as the birds sang and gathered food for their nests.
They watched the squirrels scamper around and climb trees.
They were pleased with what they were seeing at the park, so they decided to stay overnight.
The next morning they asked a wise snowy owl for directions to another park.
He had been watching them closely, so he saw how they were laughing and enjoying the friendly activities of the birds and the squirrels.

The owl said to them, "You two are small, so I can carry you on my back to the next park." They happily accepted his offer of a ride to the other park and thanked him for the exciting trip in the air.
When they arrived at the park they saw a lot of friendly people, some with their dogs.
They spoke to several of them and got to know a particular lady, who had a Chinese Foo dog named Fushi (which means 'God of happiness').
They joyfully played with him until they were breathless and had to rest.
They enjoyed the park very much and the kindness shown by everyone.

The next day they talked to a kind lady who told them of a pleasant place not far from the park that they could visit. It was called Tianchi Lake.
They walked a few miles and soon started to feel and smell the water from the nearby lake. There was a cool breeze blowing as they approached the lake shoreline.
They looked at each other and smiled.
They had finally found a place they could settle down for the rest of their short lives.

Shu and Meili spent many of their days watching birds and also doing catch-and-release fishing from the dock.
They also enjoyed taking walks around the lake and sitting together on the beach to enjoy their lifelong friendship.
