”aaaaaah ”

Sitting behind the old shop counter Old Liu can help but yawning as he had not seen a single customer coming into his shop from morning till evening, his eyes can help him stay awake as it already in half sleep state because of boredom.

He is the owner of Golden Pagoda Antique shop, this antique shop have been pass down from old generation to new generation for almost 500 years.

In past 500 years this Antique shop have seen few changing of world yet it still stand firm standing on it old place without moving like a tall mountain pin the earth surface from moving.

It that 500 years it also had been bask in glory before as it become centre of antique enthusiast. This antique shop have been collecting and sell a lot of precious item from past dynasties, and from effect of it, the past shop owner have a lot of connection with rich people.

But at last, the glorious sun hanging at the sky in noon time must set when the dusk arrive giving space for the beautiful and gentle moon at night.

This pawn shop will face same fate as the sun but unlike sun that will raise again on next day, this shop will not. The new generation of people no longer have deep feeling and appreciate the old item that contain history of their past ancestor instead they become obsess and chase new gadget like smart phone and computer.

If you ask new generation about the old history most of them will have blank expression and look at you like looking at old artefact that will enter the soil in few years to come.

It have been 5 years since old Liu saw any customer come into his shop, and the last customer did not buy any antique item but just come to buy a tissue because he is in dire need to use public toilet and that said toilet run out of toilet paper.

Right now old Liu will thanks all his seven generation of ancestor if someone will buy something from his shop.

Long ago he already wanted to close down and sell this shop to real estate agent while sell all it belonging in it to recycles company as old age already catching up to him and make it harder for him to keep this antique shop operate.

But he did not do it, as this shop is what his father use to raised him and from earning of this shop that feed him and his brother and sister and from earning of this shop that he raises two famous surgeon that have patient begging for they to operate of them.

He will feels guilty if he close down this shop, it is like he disappoint all his ancestors who is past shop owners. But he is helpless against time, against his children as none of them willing to become owner of this shop.

Today is the last time he will siting behind the counter overlook the entire antique collection as owner of this shop. It all because both of his son and daughter force him to close this shop and live with them as he have no strength nor health to handle this reward less operation.

Cling! Ling! Clink! Ling! Cling! The door bell ringing.

As he reminisce about the past, the antique shop door opened as slightly chubby young man with traditional hanfu clothing and with bamboo fans flapping in his hand enter.

”Ermm! ” old Liu stunned and awake from his half sleep state as he look at this young man walking in with swag into his antique shop looking like a martial artist from pugilistic world with his firm step like moving mountain.


As the young man enter into the antique shop he close his bamboo fan perfectly and put it inside his pocket sleeve with a single movement almost look like it a pure instinct for him.


Loud gluping sound can be heard as old Liu swallow his saliva as he looking at the young man with surprise.

”Old man did you sell cauldron here? ” The young man asked with tone that neither too loud nor too soft yet it was deep as tiger chuff.

”Huh? ” Old man Liu was too shocked to reply as he did not know that what he saw is real or fake. This is first time he see and hear people that have voice akin to tiger chuff even if he talk normally.

”I say old man, did you sell cauldron here or not? ” the young man asked again but this time his voice is no longer like chuff of happy tiger instead it was akin to harsh growl of angry tiger.
