It was a warm afternoon, with few customers in the antique shop. In the there was only one tourist, in the big shop, wearing a yellow hat and carrying a large bag. He was watching various antique displayed in the showcase unconcernedly. The shopkeeper just finished his lunch and walked like a penguin with his giant body swaying from side to side. He decided to take a nap and didn’t take too much attention to the tourist, for a tourist like that can be seen everyday and they came to here just for fun or to widen their eyes.

But just at that time, an aged and timid voice flew through the shopkeeper’s ears, ”Boss, I--- I--- have a nice thing, would you like to have a look?” The shopkeeper opened his eyes slowly and had a glimpse at the man, an old man about sixty years old with a shabby cloth and grey hair. The shopkeeper got up drawlingly and asked.” What’s the nice thing? Take it out and let me have a look.” The old man hurriedly put his canvas bag on the counter and took out a well wrapped bag with great care, then unfolded the wrapped paper. The shopkeeper found it’s only a incense-burner, with black body, simple, style and few engraved marks on it. After a simple examination and detailed observation, the shopkeeper was shocked and put the incense-burner on the counter slowly and pretended as if nothing was special. But the shining bright eyes could hide his excitement .The shopkeeper shook his head and said:” i t’s just a valueles s thing.” Actually, he had already known it’s a nice incense-burner which was given by Thailand in Ming dynasty. And nowadays a nice thing like this which was preserved well was fewer and fewer.“ Excuse me, then how much does it value?”“300yuan, I’ll take it”“300?’’the old man couldn’t believe his ears,’’ last year I even wasn’t willing to sell it with a higher price of 2000yuan …300? In fact, the incense-burner is the best liked thing of my wife, and she always use it to burn incense and worship the gods or pray. She loved it so much that no one can touch it.

But this time I’m only urged to sell it for the reason that she’s ill in the hospital and we can’t afford the medical charges. Could you value it a little higher?’’ “It’s really a pity to hear that, but it’s not the same situation as before. At most I can give you 500 Yuan for it.” “Ok, forget it. I think I’d better to sell it at other stores.” After that he wrapped the incense-burner and intended to leave. When the shopkeeper started to say anything, the tourist turned to the old man and observed it and deterred the old man, then said, ”can you let me to have a look?”He couldn’t wait to let the man answer and grabbed the incense-burner and unfolded the wrapped paper quickly. After the tourist’s det ailed observation, the tourist answered racily”3000 Yuan, I’ll take it.” “Ok, 3000 Yuan, you take it.” The old man glanced at the shopkeeper complacently and satisfied with price greatly. Then he took out 3000 Yuan to the old man. The shopkeeper couldn’t bear it and cried out. “Wait! Wait! Little guy, don’t you know its unreasonable

and improper to do that!” “What?” “Can we have a talk over there? the shopkeeper grabbed him to the other side. “If you deal with him in the street, then it’s beyond my business, but in my shop. Don’t you thin it matter s my point of honor? As an outlander, I advice you should make little trouble for yourself!” “Are you threatening me?” “Ok, you can see it” the shopkeeper’s eyes were shinning with angry and like a wolf to guard his food.

The tourist was a little afraid for that the shopkeeper realized that the method made sense, and then he turned to the old man” I was kidding with you just now, and I can afford 4000 Yuan for it.” But the tourist couldn’t even say anything unde r the urge of the strong shopkeeper. The old man saw it and shrugged his shoulder and felt very sorry. Whatever he handed back the tourist’s money with an apologetic smile and the tourist gave the incense-burner back Strangely, the shopkeeper didn’t get it instantly, but looked at them up and down.

Suddenly he burst into laugh.” don’t pretend like that, and I have doubted you after the determination of buying the incense-burner, while the real one is till in your bag. The shopkeeper started at the tourist. “What do you mean? I even don’t understand.” His face was filled with innocence.

” You should see it, the one given by the old man is genuine and then you pretend to buy it and at that time, you change it with a counterfeit. Actually you aim to let me buy the fake one.”

“No, no, you have been mistaken me!“

“Mistaken? You think m foolish enough so that I even can’t recognize the wrapped one have been exchanged. Just now its wrapped with the paper of Southern Weekly, but not it’s China Daily. The old m an and the tourist thought it’s time to escape, But the shopkeeper had a quick mind and warded off the door. “Believe it or not, you’ll be caught if I press the alarming apparatus.” “what’s on earth do you want to do?” cried the old man” leaving the incense-burner.” “W hat? Why?” “You should think it over, and you’ll be put into the cell through all your life when considering your behaviors of scalping of cultural relics” The shopkeeper said craftily. The old man stared at him angrily and his face turned green. “Of course, I won’t take it without paying anything. How about 50 thousand? That’s the best idea, and you can give me the incense-burner.” The shopkeeper said complacently. The tourist took out the thing unwillingly after a quick glance at the man. The shopkeeper found it’s wrapped with Southern Weekly paper and his heart was at ease and instantly went to reach the coffer to get 50 thousand. The old man caught the money and stuffed it into bag, thus went with the tourist. He couldn’t wait to unfold it, like a child unfolding his birthday present. But there’s no free lunch in the world, as the shopkeeper saw the burner. In the incense-burner lied a small paper then the shop keeper cried. He was taken in. They finally win the money.
