After listening to Steve, Li Du could not help but ask, "What, mate? You want to dig for gems? Don't you mean you want to invest in a mine?"
Steve shook his head. "No investing, just digging. I want to be a miner."
Li Du swallowed. Sophie thought he was thirsty, so she gave him a glass of water. He pushed the glass away and said, "You want to be a miner? I'm a little confused, Steve. I want you to be clear. What is your purpose?"
With that, Li Du quickly added, "I mean, mining is exhausting work, and miners don't make that much money. Why would you want to be a miner?"
Steve smiled and said, "I need to exercise. Mining is a workout, right?"
Li Du replied, "Yes, it's really good exercise, but it's quite intense, and I don't think it's suitable for you. Not only that, but it's very dangerous. There was a mine collapse at Lightning Ridge not long ago."
