Chapter 5: Another Son…(1)
Gu Yuanyuan thought that although her second son was considerate, in some ways, he’s also a bit cold too.
She released Gu Yizhou’s arm from her previous grasp.
In the high-rise building where Gu Yizhou was currently residing in, the elevator promptly stopped at the 18th floor.
Once they have gotten out of the elevator, it only took two steps for them to reach Gu Yizhou’s apartment door, then using the biometrics of his fingerprints to unlocked it.
Since Gu Yaunyuan was a kind of country bumpkin that grew up in the mountains before, she was astonished and amazed at his every movement. It was as if he’s very skilled at this.
She could only vaguely remember that the last time she had crossed a world was only from the ancient times. And whenever she passed through another one, she would always forget the major parts about it, leaving only a bit of impression on her memories.
After a long time of not having contact with any of the modern equipment, she felt refreshed after seeing it again.
Gu Yuanyuan silently followed passed the doorway and looked around with curiosity in her eyes. The apartment was spacious and was obviously decorated according to a typical single male’s style. Its theme was more of a gray in color, adding a hint of coolness in his home, while the floor was very smooth, clean, and without the slightest speck of dust.
Doctors were obsessed with cleanliness. It’s a kind of second nature for them, and which was also precisely the case of his home.
Gu Yizhou took out a pair of men’s slippers while saying: “Wear this. I don’t have anything for girls here.”
Gu Yuanyuan complied with him and changed her shoes to the slippers. While staring at it, she realized that the slippers were a tad too big for her to casually walk around.
Exploring her eyes over his home, she saw several pieces of artistic painting that were properly hung on the walls. As she couldn’t appreciate this kind of style, Gu Yuanyuan shifted her eyes away and unconsciously dropped it on the one side of the poster.
Surprisingly, the poster showed a young man, wearing a straight Chinese Tunic Suit, while looking so sharp on it. He had a red lips and a pearl white teeth. And with the blade in his hand, he appeared very picturesque.
(e/n: Chinese Tunic Suit was also known as Zhongshan Suit or Mao Suit. It was a traditional suit in China. Here’s the sample image: )
However, there was something in his eyes. Something called a ‘burning fire’ within it that urged people to look at it closely and causing their hearts to beat a second faster.
On the very edge of the poster, one could see an illegible signature on it—named after Lin Shaosi.
Gu Yuanyuan. “!!!”
She was kind of dumbfounded when she looked at the poster. She couldn’t help herself from coming forward to inspect it carefully.
In the original book, after being separated from Gu Yuanyuan, the third son fled to a Shaolin Temple and was fortunately adopted by the people of it. The Head Monk of the Shaolin Temple was somewhat surprised when he unexpectedly found out that the third son’s bone structure was unique and kind of unusual. Hence, based on his observations, he immediately concluded that he was a natural martial art genius.
Over the years, there were only a few people that could be able to honestly learn the proficiency of martial arts. At most, they’ve only been able to practice martial arts just to build up their bodies and to stay physically fit, but other than these, there’s no other effects or improvement at all. So, as time goes by, the martial arts secrets that were left behind by the old ancestors have gradually disappeared.
The Head Monk strongly refused to let such a good seedling to be buried and be devoid of his purpose. Therefore, he groomed the third son and let him practiced martial arts from an early age. He taught him all the secrets scripts he had gathered over time, and also including the Shaolin Temple’s collection.
The third son was very thankful to the Head Monk, so as a sign of his gratefulness, he decided to change his name and take it after the word ‘Shaolin Temple’. And thus, he was named Lin Shaosi.
As he was learning martial arts from a young age, accidentally, he was selected by a movie director to act in a movie. Since then, he became a well–renowned Kung Fu superstar in the industry, and still, up until now.
In the entertainment circle, there were plenty of actors that were proficient with Kung Fu, but most of them were not young anymore. Moreover, their appearances were quite cold and stiff.
Therefore, there’s only one exception among them, and that was Lin Shaosi.
He was one of a kind.
