"Ren , have you finished with the potatoes? " , shouted a voice that carried great anger at the little boy who was peeking through the curtains covering the kitchen doors .
This was the YIN RESTAURANT and the voice came from a short and bald old man Yin , who surprisingly had more chins than a Chinese phone book . Old man Yin was actually the owner and he really hated this skinny brat who spent most of the time peeking at the basketball games on the screens instead of working .
It's not that he could not fire the little brat , but where else could he get such cheap labour, and as such , he had to put up with the little brat .
"I'm almost done , it's just that I uncovered the hiding place of the mouse who ate yesterday's potatoes and I have been sweating to catch it Mr Yin." ,Ren shouted back as he hurriedly ran into the kitchen . "Mphh ! ",old man Yin chocked, he also expected this reply . He gritted his teeth before subconsciously returning to his account book.
It was late past ten when a sweaty figure came from the backdoor of the restaurant ."Goodbye Ren " , a calm voice came from old man Yin's daughter who was a bit younger than Ren ."Bye Xintong , bye Mr Yin ",Ren replied as he walked down the street with his worn out backpack.
The door closed behind him with shrieking sounds and he was left alone into the cold night.
"tsl , tsl tsl "
Ren played with his flute while making
huge strides down the lonely street .
It really was cold and his face became pale and his breathing created a pattern of smoke ,he was actually using the "breath in like a mouse and out like a whale" technique.
"This is the only training from Grandpa that at least helps me, the others are just torture",Ren thought to himself with an irritated look. He began wondering whether his grandpa would be awake.
Though he hated grandpa's training,he was actually the only family he had and thus Ren and his grandpa were inseparable.
From far ahead, light flickered from a window,"So he is still awake ! " ,Ren said happily while increasing his pace down the dark street.
