Modern Fable

A Chinese love story recently touched the world. It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century. To avoid the market gossips, the couple lived in a cave in Southern China. Starting the second year of living in the mountain, Liu began, and continued for over 50 years, to hand carve the steps so that his wife could get down the mountain easily. A half century later in 2001, a group of adventures were exploring the forest, when they surprisingly found the elderly couple and the over 6,000 steps of the hand carved stairs. ‘My parents loved each other so much, they have lived in seclusion for over 50 years and never been apart a single day.’ Liu Ming Sheng, one of their seven children said, ‘He hand carved more than 6,000 steps over the years for my mother’s convenience, although she doesn’t go down the mountain that much.’
