Dongshan Cao sat on the bench and closed his eyes a bit. You could tell from his eyebrows that he was really at ease.
"It’s very comfortable! The strength I feel every time you massage me is exactly what I want. Not too heavy, not too light. You stimulated the part of my muscle that hurt the most! Now I feel like my arms have become lighter, almost like floating in the water. My muscles don’t ache anymore, and even the soreness has gone away. It’s just like when I woke up this morning. No, it’s even better than that!" Shandong Cao’s eyes were completely closed. He enjoyed the massage and almost fell asleep.
"Alright, now the other arm!" Dai Li’s voice woke him up. He found that Li was on the other side of him and began massaging the other arm.
Dongshan Cao waved the arm that had been massaged by Li and didn’t feel any uncomfortability. He could barely raise his arm before. Now, not only could he reach his arm behind his head, but could also did many moves. He even thought that maybe Dai Li had given him a new arm.
Your massage techniques and results are much better than that professional Zhang on our team! He is a professional masseuse, but the way he does it always hurts me. Coach Li is different. I can feel the effect right away! No wonder Aiguo Jiang doesn’t go to Zhang any more. He has coach Li, who is 100 times better than Zhang! He keeps raising his training level these days. It’s all because of coach Li’s massages!" Thinking about that, Dongshan Cao looked at his watch unconsciously.
This coach Li has some talent. I remember the first day he came here, he became very close with Aiguo Jiang. I was wondering how a bad-tempered person like Aiguo Jiang could get along so well with Dai Li. Now I understand. He is going to become very popular here with his massage techniques.
Cao had a flattering smile on his face thinking about that. "Coach Li, your massage techniques are really good. Could you please massage me too when you have time?"
How could Li reject the empirical value that was calling his name. He promised immediately, "No problem. If you are not worried about having lunch later, you can come to me every day after you finish training. I’ll do the massage for you!"
The next day, it was time for training to end.
"Cao, let’s go eat," someone told Cao.
"Liu, you go first, bro. I have a reservation with coach Li for a massage," Dongshan Cao answered.
"Coach Li? Which coach Li?" Liu asked.
"The newcomer, coach Li! He has really good massage techniques that are much better than Zhang who works in the massage room!" Cao walked in the direction of Dai Li, happily finishing what he was saying. He didn’t want to keep Dai Li waiting.
Better than Zhang? I heard that he asked for two weeks’ vacation. So he could only come back next month. Maybe I should go to coach Li for a massage too. I just don’t know if he is really good or not. He is only 23 years old. He is too young to be better than those professionals. Liu followed Cao and thought about it.
After a few minutes, he saw Cao’s face and he could tell that Cao was really enjoying it.
Look at his face. It looks like he is really enjoying this. If I only looked at his face, I might think he is having some special massage service! He doesn’t look like he is pretending. Could a massage be so comfortable? He mulled over it, then said, "Coach Li, could you please give me a massage too, if you are available?"
"Sure, no problem," Dai Li said, not turning down the offer. After ten minutes, Liu’s face looked exactly as Cao’s face had. He couldn’t help but drool a little bit.
It’s so good! I feel like my muscles are under no pressure at all. I could never relax my muscles like this, even if I stopped training for three whole days. No wonder Cao rushed here as soon as training ended. If I were him, I would rush here too. Liu looked at Dai Li and decided that he should get along well with him.
Another day passed. Training had just ended. Not only did Cao and Liu come to Dai Li for massages, but another two athletes as well. Everybody had positive things to say about his massaging abilities, and good ratings spread very fast. The weightlifting socialization network was not very big, so one would tell another, and another, and so on. There were more athletes coming to Dai Li for massages. After a short while, all the athletes on the weightlifting team had experienced his massage.
It was also because Zhang had asked for a vacation. Before, many athletes went to Zhang, and they had to make reservations. But because Zhang was now on vacation, the athletes had nowhere to go but Dai Li. Whether he was good or not, everyone would come and try.
Everybody who tried it, however, found that they couldn’t resist his massages anymore. Athletes were not stupid—they could feel the effects. Everybody wanted to have a good rest after training instead of suffering from soreness to the point where they couldn’t even raise their arms.
In a few days, Dai Li became the busiest person on the weightlifting team, especially every time after training. Nobody could wait to receive a relaxing massage from Dai Li.
Xiang Huang held the plate and pointed to the food in the container. "Mr. Cai, please give me more chicken and less pepper please. Please don’t shake your hand, two pieces of chicken just fell off!"
"I’ll add two more pieces, alright?" The chief who held the big spoon added two more pieces and asked, "Have you been training longer than usual these days?"
"No. It’s the same training time as before." Xiang Huang asked.
"Then why do all the athletes come so late for meals? It’s been happening for a few days, especially today. All the people who have come are coaches. No athletes have come yet," Cai said.
Xiang Huang looked around and saw that it was true. All the people eating were coaches. No athletes were in sight.
"Those athletes are standing in line for massages, I guess!" Xiang Huang laughed.
"Massages? They quit eating just for a massage? How could it be more important than food? Is it because my dishes are not delicious enough?" Cai looked very dissatisfied and began mumbling to himself. He felt very frustrated.
