ig trees unmoving by the storm

Is this person from hidden world, the underground? The world that unknown to normal people like me? The world of martial art, where strength decided real meaning of right and wrongs?

I never thought that one day I will meet a person from that world talking old Liu in his head.

”It fine by me even if it old item, I would like to buy one. Money is not a problem for me ” the young man smile as he saw old Liu startled and kind of afraid of him and his voice become deep like happy tiger chuff again.

”Where did you put them? I wanted to see them first if they are to my liking ” the young man asked.

”Please follow me sir ” answer old Liu as he walk toward the storage room behind the counter.

Click! Creak!!! Creak!!!

The old storage room door clicked and creaking when the old Liu open the lock and push it open signalling it old age.

Cough! Cough! Cough! Cough!

As old Liu enter the storage room he coughing from the dust and stale air invade his already worn-out lungs.

”Cough! … Cough! … come in sir… cough!… the cauldron that you wanted to look is here ” old man Liu invite the young man as keep coughing.

”It here, this old shop of mine have three cauldron left ” the old man say as he pointed three cauldron that on the ground in front him when the young man enter the room.

”This one is called Fire Pear Dragon Cauldron, it come in to my shop 40 years ago when my father still alive, it hold a lot of sentimental value to me, sir if you want it I can sell it to you for 30,000 yuan ” He says as he pointed at chili red three lagged cauldron with motif of Asian dragon with its front claw holding a single pear.

”This one come to my shop 100 years ago, at that time it was my grandpa who manage this store. Its body make from solid bronze and it weighs more than 450Kg ” old man Liu explain as he pointed at forest green three lagged cauldron with motif of tree and insects.

”This one… this… this cauldron I don know when it come into this shop, not even my father know it nor my grandpa. All we know that it have been passing down in my family for more than 9 generation. Its strangely light weight about less than 10kg even with huge body, furthermore it is harder than normal alloy ”

”Even I still now did not know what kind of material this cauldron make of. It not that I don want to test this cauldron but neither me nor my father know how to do alchemy and we did not want to damage something that have been passed from generation to another just because of our curiosity. ” The old man Liu say while pointed at silver five legged cauldron with motive of snake circling the caldron and eating its own tail.

”Hmm…this one look nice, tell me how much is it? ” the young man ask as he touch the silver cauldron

”this… it hard for me to tell it price, as this cauldron have been passing down as a family heirloom for more than few generation ” old man Liu answer with uncertain expression as if he express his unwillingness to part with this cauldron.

Businessman is businessman after all, even if one of his feets already standing in front of King Yama, he will still thinking of way to hike up the price of his goods.

”Just tell me old man, I already say money is not the problem ” the young man say in clear yet somehow muffled voice like tiger chuff.

”500,000 yuan! No less! And I will even give you the other two cauldron for free, how about that? ” old man Liu say in excited voice as he knew that this will be his last transaction before he close down this shop for good.

”500, 000 yuan is it, you can keep the other two cauldron for yourself ”

”The other two cauldron will only collect dust if it stay with me, because if I refine a pill one cauldron is enough for me to last a lifetime ” he says as he hand over union pay debit card between his index and middle finger skilfully.

”Erm…Sir aren you afraid that someone can track you down if you use debit card? ” Old man Liu ask with mix of curiosity and fear.

”What am I afraid of? It not like they can do anything to me. Those who try already meet their maker ” the young man answer with arrogant tone as if no ones can harm him.

”Don just stand there, do the transaction faster, I don like to waste my time in meaningless chit chat ” he command old Liu with annoying voice as his eyes stare sharply at old man Liu.

”Ye…yes sir I will do it faster! ” old man Liu reply shakenly

”Here sir… please sign here to complete transaction ” old man Liu say as he hand over the receipt with shaking hand.

”Erm ” the young man nod his head than proceed to sign the receipt.
