1 - Pauper in the street

Strained by a day at the Imperial Palace, Shaobaibai and the poet Shu Chen were walking together through the streets of Chang'An. When suddenly a panicked beggar grabs the writer's sleeve : “Master Shaobaibai, please follow me! You’re the only one who can help me!” “Let go of my arm, fool!” reply’s Shu Chen, “You’re not speaking to the right person!” Beggar in the street


The beggar releases Shu Chen’s sleeve : “Uh… I was told that the famous Master Shaobaibai was here…” Disappointed the old man turns away, Shu Chen then calls him back and points out his friend : “This is the man you are looking for, little worm!” Shu Chen showing Shaobaibai
