Zhao: What?
Gao: People in the street are all play and jump happily, who would be so foolish to buy that pity thing?
Zhao: What are you talking about? I worked day and night and spent so many materials to finish it. And now you are telling me not sell it?
Gao: Er…But how can you sell it before those healthy people?
Zhao: Don’t you know me? You’re calling me the swindler! With this talent, I can make the straight become the bend. I can turn the dying into the energetic. I can make the sweet couple separated right away. Today, to sell this crutch, I am able to make the strong legs lamed.
Gao: Haha… Come on! Forget all about it!
