Humorous Lao Bai

“Grandma, what happened?”

Grandma Bai sat on a folding stool, stitching a small cotton-padded mattress while muttering to herself, “I want to eat Pi Li Bao [1].”

“Pi Li Bao?” What is this thing? Bai Luo Yin thought, then asked, “Is it a tomato?”

“No!” Grandma Bai corrected her pronunciation, “Pi一Li一Bao!”

Bai Luo Yin still couldn’t understand it.

Grandma Bai felt somewhat anxious, she randomly made a gesture with her hands, “It’s Pi….. Pi….. Aiya, I can’t speak well!”

“Grandma, don’t worry!”

Bai Luo Yin sought help from Gu Hai with his gaze, nowadays Gu Hai has become Grandma Bai’s interpreter. Previously, when they couldn’t understand what Grandma Bai was saying, they would ask Bai Luo Yin, but now that Bai Luo Yin couldn’t understand it too, they asked Gu Hai.

Gu Hai was lost in his own thoughts for a moment before his eyes suddenly brightened up.

“Grandma, you wanted to say apple right?”

Grandma Bai grinned happily until all of her molar teeth could be seen.

“Yes….Yes….It’s Pi Li Bao..”

Bai Luo Yin almost fell down to the floor, why is it so far? Fortunately, Gu Hai’s brain doesn’t function normally like other people. Supposed if it were someone else, they won’t be thinking that far!

“Let’s eat!”

The whole family sat surrounding the round dining table, they were chatting while eating. It could be clearly seen that Bai Han Qi’s mood is particularly excellent today, as he unconsciously drank half a bottle of white wine, then he began to talk about his brilliant achievement when he was young while his saliva splattered around. Bai Luo Yin simply listened to him silently, it had been a long time since the last time he saw Bai Han Qi’s expression like today. Although Bai Han Qi is usually joyful, he would always frown, it had never stopped for the past 10 years until today he is finally able to take a breath.

Actually, Bai Luo Yin is very touched with all the things that Gu Hai did for him, he just had a little bit feeling of unwillingness to resign.

“Da Hai! Da Hai! The luckiest thing that ever happened to our Yin Zi is….. to meet a friend like you….”  Bai Han Qi reached out his big hand to hit Gu Hai’s shoulder, “Uncle really needs to say thank you. Thank you for being so good to Yin Zi.”

Bai Han Qi poured a cup of wine for Gu Hai while talking.

Gu Hai stood up then drank the wine.

His butt had just barely sat down when Bai Han Qi hit him again.

“Da Hai! Uncle is thinking about you too! Actually, I just received some money today, and I immediately went to the furniture store to buy one bed for you. I’ve wronged you all this time, you have to squeeze with our Yin Zi in one bed, but it’s all good now. I bought one bed for you too, later on, both of you can sleep on one bed each, so there’s no need to squeeze together anymore.”

Bai Han Qi said so many words, but only one sentence amused Bai Luo Yin.

Gu Hai’s face turned green, he wasn’t grateful, he wasn’t complaining, it seems like there is something like a barb growing in his throat, it took a lot of effort just to swallow!

“Uncle, you don’t need to spend any money, just return the bed back, I sleep very well when I’m sleeping with Yin Zi.”

Bai Han Qi furrowed his eyebrows, sighed heavily, “How can that be okay? Since you are living here in our home, Uncle can’t treat you unfairly. Don’t be all polite with Uncle, I should’ve bought it for you earlier, my finances were a little bit tight before, I just received some money today, without saying anything further I just rushed to the furniture store. Uncle has always been thinking about this nephew of mine! Hahaha!”

Those words are really touching, but it doesn’t reach Gu Hai’s heart!

“Uncle, please listen to me, I’m not going to live here for a long time, perhaps one day I can suddenly go back home. If you buy another bed, isn’t it going to be a waste?”

This time, Bai Han Qi didn’t say anything.

This time, Gu Hai looked really hopeful, he was unable to swallow the rice, he’s only waiting for Bai Han Qi to make a phone call to return the bed.

Bai Han Qi’s fingers tapped on the dining table for a few times, he turned his head towards Gu Hai and said, “Let’s do this, just sleep on that bed first for a few days, wait until you go back, then let Yin Zi sleep there. Yin Zi’s bed has been used for many years already, it has to be changed too.”

Gu Hai, “…….”

Bai Luo Yin almost choked on the food inside his mouth, he placed his chopstick down, rarely interfering a conversation.

“Gu Hai, since my father had already bought it for you, there’s no need to be so polite!”

Gu Hai almost clenched his teeth, I’m not sleeping on one bed with you, why are you so happy? Why are you so uncomfortable with me?….. You brat, just you wait and see, I definitely won’t let you sleep peacefully tonight!



Translator’s Note:

[1] Grandma Bai wanted to say 苹果(Ping Guo: Apple) but because she couldn’t speak well she just spoke some nonsensical word.
