Translation:
Long time ago, in a cave  of ErMei Mountain in Sichuan lived a white snake of one thousand year’s old and a green snake of eight hundred year’s old. Although they are snake spirits, they are kind-hearted, and never hurt people. As they are curious about the human world, they decide to travel down the mountains. So they turn into two beautiful girls, one is called Lady White, the other Little Green. They travel to Hangzhou, the so-called Paradise on the earth.

While the two girls are admiring the lotus  blossoms by the Broken Bridge at The West Lake, it suddenly starts to rain heavily. A young man, Xu Xian, comes up to them and lends his umbrella to worried couple. Later on, Mr. Xu helps them to find a boat to send them home across the lake. The White Snake falls in love with Xu, and decides to stay in the human world. She marries Xu Xian, and the couple open a pharmacy by the West Lake. Xu Xian is friendly to his customers, and works diligently; Lady White is very resourceful, and she can find any kinds of herbal medicine. Therefore, their business is becoming more and more prosperous.
At that time, in Jin Shan lives a meddlesome monk called Fa Hai, who discovers the true identity of Lady White. He feels that Xu Xian is fooled by the white snake, and they shouldn’t have got married. So Fa Hai told Xu that Lady White was changed from a snake and that she will be changed  back into a snake if she drinks some rice wine. On the day of Dragon Boat Festival, it is Chinese customs to wear sachets and drink rice wine. Xu Xian insists on her drinking a cup. Lady White had to drink a little. She feels dizzy right after that. So she retreats to her room to rest. In a short while, Xu Xian sneaks in, too. Opening the bed curtain, he saw a long and thick white snake sleeping in bed. He is so scared that he lets out a loud cry and falls to the ground, dead.
Lady White wakes up to find that Xu Xian has been frightened to death. She says to Little Green, “ I have to go to Ling Mountain, for only the magical grass there can bring Xu Xian back to life.” Little Green said, “ jiejie, you can’t possibly go there, as it is too dangerous. Those magical grass on the Ling Mountain is protected by the soldiers and  generals from the heaven. Now that you are pregnant, weak and frail, how can you win over them?” However, in order to snatch the magical grass to save Xu Xian’s life, Lady White cannot care about it anymore. She has a big fight against the soldiers there on the Ling Mountain. She almost dies in the battle, but she came back home with the magical grass.

After waking up, Xu Xian  is still not  sure about Lady White. So he leaves home and sets out for Jin Mountain to find Fa Hai. But once Fa Hai sees him, he wouldn’t let go of Xu Xian. He insists on him staying at the temple of Jin Mountain. A few days later, her husband not returning, Lady White gets worried and travels together with Little Green to Jin Mountain to look for Xu Xian .

Fa Hai wouldn't allow her to meet up with Xu Xian. So the three of them start to fight  outside the temple gate. Lady White applies her magical power to call for water from the river, which quickly surrounds the temple. A group of shrimps and crabs also charge against the temple, wielding their weapons. Fa Hai is surprised , and taking off his clothes, hurriedly covers the building. As a result, the temple gate grows one feet taller every time the flood rises one feet higher. In the end, Lady White has to have the flooding receded, and returns to Hangzhou.

After Lady White leaves, Xu Xian finally comes to sense that Fa Hai is not a nice guy. Therefore, he sneaks out of the Jin Mountain, and returns to Hangzhou, too. It is at the Broken Bridge, where he and Lady White first meets, that he sees Lady White and Little Green again. Lady White complains tearfully, “ how come you are so cold-hearted to leave us behind? Did you forget the happy life we used to have?” Xu Xian is also very repentant and says, “ I was muddle-headed. I’m so sorry.”  Lady White forgives him, but Little Green is still mad at him. At the time, Lady White feels contractions. It seems the baby is arriving. The three of them hurried home.

After they went home, Lady White gives birth to a fair chubby baby boy. The whole family rejoice at it. However, Fa Hai comes again without being invited. As soon as Xu Xian see him, he said, “Master, I know best if my wife is human or snake at all, if she is good or evil. Could you please stop disrupting our happy life?” But Fa Ha ignores his request, “Snake spirit is always a snake spirit. ’m doing this for your good!” As he says this, he breaks into the room (of Lady White). Holding up a gold bowl, he sucks Lady White inside, who is lying in bed. Then he buries the bowl under the LeiFeng Pagoda by the West Lake.
Little Green escapes to E Mei Mountain with Lady White’s child. Eighteen years later, the child has become a Kungfu Master. He returns to Hangzhou to avenge his mother. Fa Hai is no match for him, so  he has to jump into the West Lake, followed by the young man. Seeing this, Fa Hai hurried to hide inside a crab’s hard shell in the lake.

This is  another love story, like Butterfly Lovers, that took place in Hangzhou by the beautiful West Lake. It is strange that although it is obviously a fairy tale, the places mentioned in the story are real.  Seven hundred years later, on Sep. 12th, 1924,  the LeiFeng Pagoda collapsed.
Nowadays, if you open the shell of a crab, you can still spot Fahai huddled up inside. Here is how:
First, take out the middle part and clean it.
Second, cut it out along the red line in the photo.

Last, turn it inside out. Ta da!
