    • Mr. Yu is a normal police man, who works for the dangerous items management department of Qi Qi Ha Er. His duty is taking care of such dangerous items that located in the supervised area; especially those items are flammable and explosive. In Yu’s supervision area, there were huge amount of bombs left by Japanese army, which were normally destroyed together. However, one of the bombs, which were found in construction site, exploded before people can do something to it. Luckily, it does not hurt anybody since Yu has moved it to a safe place before the explosion. Even though, Yu was really scared.
      In winter time, Yu usually went fishing by breaking a hole on the ice. By doing this, he will be able to cook for his colleagues and friends. Yu has a really high social standard due to his enthusiasm, can-do attitude and trustable personality. His wife made a funny comment for him, “the only thing he can not do is pregnant”.
      One day, a self-made bomb was discovered in a really old building. The bomb was extremely hard to dismantle since it was hided between a make bench and the wall next to it. There was only one hour left before the explosion, which was definitely not enough for the specialists to come over and dismantle it. At such moment, Mr Yu appears in people’s mind. He spent several years in the army and knows well about dangerous items’ management, but Yu only familiar with detonator and bomb, he has no idea with such kind of self-made bomb. However, in this intense situation, the only thing he can do is to dismantle the bomb whatsoever. Based on his expertise, the bomb was dismantled successfully. Bomb is not as lovely as an egg, it explodes. Mr Yu was so tired after he accomplished his job. Unfortunately, during the celebration, another bomb was found in the same building.
      In the next couple of days, more bombs were discovered. Not surprisingly, all of the bombs were dismantled by Yu; and he always asks other people to stay in safe area while he was doing his job. His family did not even know that Yu was doing such a dangerous job, and they were so worried about him after they found out the truth. Although Yu was sacred as well, he can not give his job up since he has certain responsibility.
      The last bomb, which was hided in a beer box, was discovered. Sadly, right before Yu moved the bomb far away from crowd and started the dismantlement, it exploded……
