Chapter 6: Shopping (3)
Then she asked with curiosity, “A while ago, you flew up. Was that a qīnggōng you used earlier?
(e/n: 轻功 >> qīnggōng >> means: lightness technique in martial arts)
“Yes. That’s right.” Lin Shaosi truthfully answered as he was willing to help her in her evident curiosity. “I practiced martial arts ever since I was a kid. I always tied the heavy sandbags all the time. And eventually, as the time goes by, those heavy sandbags turned lightweight as a swallow.”
“That’s amazing!” Gu Yuanyuan’s eyes sparkled at his reply. “You…”
“The food had turned out badly, so let’s just eat out.” Gu Yizhou, who came out of the kitchen, cut off her impending words.
Lin Shao directly picked up his phone. “I’ll book a restaurant, just right to celebrate your birthday.”
Gu Yizhou didn’t like it as he was not fond of these kind of things. But as this was the kindness and the good intention of his younger brother, he did not dare to refuse it.
Gu Yuanyuan: “!!!”
It was Erbao’s birthday, and she didn’t even know about it!!!
Right at this moment, a message flashed in her mind: 3rd of November, Erbao’s birthday
She remembered that when she woke up in the hospital, she noticed that there was a calendar on the bedside table. Today was October 31. So, in other words, Erbao still had three more days before he celebrates his birthday.
Gu Yizhou went to his room to change clothes, leaving Lin Shaosi alone with Gu Yuanyuan.
Gu Yuanyuan faintly asked, “Isn’t there still three days before his birthday? Why are we celebrating it in advance? I didn’t even prepare any gifts.”
Lin Shaosi wondered at her words: “You know about his birthday?”
“Yeah.” Gu Yuanyuan said candidly. While the on other hand, because of this particular and natural answer of hers, Lin Shaosi dispelled his doubts of her. He was also thinking that there were many ways for a person to know someone’s birthday.
Gu Yizhou, as a legend in the medical profession, he enjoys a great reputation throughout the medical community. One could even find his medical encyclopedia available on the internet. So his height, weight, and birthday were all easily be seen by numerous people.
“You know who I am, right?” Lin Shaosi simply said as he pulled off the bottom part of his collar. This action of his was very elegant, yet exuding a bit of pride from his handsomeness. “I’m going to be with the team the day after tomorrow. As I am not here to be with him on his birthday, I wanted to give him an advance birthday celebration now.”
Worried that it might cause the little girl to misunderstand, he quickly explained, “Please don’t think odd things about my relationship with Dr. Gu. He is my brother. My brother, you understand?”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
As a parent and as his mother, she was somewhat confused and unable to figure out Sanbao’s thoughts for a while.
Recalling the introduction part of the book, except for the time when he’s filming, Lin Shaosi’s knives would never leave his side, and it was always with him. Even when he’s participating in some kind of activities or some events, he would always bring the machete. However, not even one person knows where he put it.
This particular thing made the fans and viewer go curious and interested in him. They were always wondering where he would hide his knives.
Gu Yuanyuan just remembered the machete which was as cold as the ice. When Lin Shaosi went out to follow his brother, he probably took away the machete with him as she didn’t see it after looking around the whole bathroom.
When she first saw the machete, she immediately knew that it was very sharp. However, if he kept it hidden on his body, was he not afraid that it might hurt him instead?
Worried as she was, Gu Yuanyuan couldn’t help but ask about it. “Where’s your knife?”
In front of her, the knife unexpectedly appeared in Lin Shaosi’s hands. The fierce swift of the air hit her face, sending chills as it touched her skin, making her unconsciously shiver. Then afterward, the knife on Lin Shaosi’s hand instantly disappeared.
“…” Gu Yuanyuan was speechless.
“How to did you do that? Are you not afraid of cutting yourself if you hid it on your body?” She frowned worriedly.
“If you saw me easily taking the knife with my hand, then it was obvious that I properly learned how to wield it.” Lin Shaosi proudly said. “Those who study martial arts were the true martial artist. If you were afraid of getting injuries, then you should not learn the martial arts in the first place.
Gu Yuanyuan turned silent.
After Gu Yizhou changed his clothes and came out from his room, the three of them decided to go out. The martial arts aura exuding from Lin Shaosi earlier, suddenly dissipated. He put on a big mask on his face, a black peaked cap, and he also put on a pair sunglasses. Then he urged the other two, “Watch your surroundings carefully, and don’t let anyone find me.”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
Gu Yuanyuan took out a box of biscuits in her hands.
As she was feeling the intense hunger, she had to fill her stomach first. While doing so, Lin Shaosi couldn’t help but glanced at her a few times. Being oblivious to this, Gu Yuanyuan generously passed the cookies to both of them, which they obediently ate together.
Noticing this sight again in front of him, Gu Yizhou slightly shook his head.
They all get inside the car. Lin Shaosi and Gu Yuanyuan, both sat together on the back seat. With him also sitting in the back, he accidentally saw her small feet.
In Lin Shaosi’s eyes, Gu Yuanyuan, who was wearing the old and small size clothes of his brother, was rather a horrible sight to see. And one thing that’s also adding to awful view was the hospital’s cotton slippers that she was currently wearing.
As a famous and leading Kung Fu Superstar, who’s at the forefront of the latest trends and had a very good aesthetic judgment, he can’t bear to watch this dreadful combination any longer. So he said to his brother, “Second brother, let’s go to a clothing store first to change her clothes.”
“The little girl has such a beautiful face, so it would be terribly wasted if she wears that kind of clothes.” Lin Shaosi shook his head as if disappointed. “Don’t just rely on the good look of your face, and ruin yourself by neglecting what you wear. You need to understand and to know better how to blossom your beauty more.”
Gu Yuanyuan: “…”
Feeling somewhat distressed, Gu Yizhou slightly frowned his brows as he was holding back his words from coming out of his lips because of his brother’s lecture.
When they found the right clothing store, Lin Shaosi properly covered himself up. Then he pulled Gu Yuanyuan into the store. Lowering the brim of his cap, he faintly said to the staff personnel: “Let her try all the new products in your store.”
Gu Yizhou did not go inside and just choose to stand at the entrance of the store when he saw what happened the moment they arrived there. He instantly paused, stopping his feet from walking forward as he did not want to go in for a while.
