Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 02
my grandfather held my shoulder, pointed to the slowly flowing Liaohe River and said, “grandson, go that way, it’s Liaoyang…”
I nodded at a loss, and my grandfather pointed to another direction: “go this way, it’s Anshan!”
I pointed to the front of the Liao River: “grandfather, where to go
My grandfather replied, “to that, it’s Shenyang, and then to the north, it’s outside!”
I looked at my grandfather in a daze and felt confused: outside?
What is outside? At home, I often hear adults mention: inside the pass, outside the pass, I vaguely remember that my family lives outside the pass!
How, to the grandfather’s home, to the Liaohe River, and inexplicably made a side outside: “outside, grandfather, what is the edge of the outside ah!”
“Yes, that is,”
my grandfather replied vaguely, “yes, that’s where your father lives right now, that’s outside the border…”
Grandfather pulled out the sleek scythe: “well, grandson, you play yourself, grandfather should cut pig grass.”
I was standing on the dike, looking at the Liaohe River flowing away. I was in a daze for a long time, silently thinking about the specific boundaries inside, outside and outside the pass. Behind me came a more familiar voice. I looked back and saw that it was the old aunt who had been humiliated to shed tears. She also ran up the dam, and there was a big one behind her Yellow dog, spitting out its red tongue, came to me with his head shaking. When he came to my feet, he lowered his head in disgust and sniffed at the tip of my shoes, which made me move backward instinctively.
The old lady courteously kicked the rhubarb dog: “go – play at the same time!”
Then, she comforted me: “nephew, don’t be afraid. The rhubarb dog is smelling your smell. After that, it can remember your smell and treat you as a member of his family.”
The old lady took my hand: “let’s go and play by the river.”
because the river bank is too steep, the grass under my feet becomes extremely smooth because of the thick grass. My body suddenly lost its balance. With a thump, I slipped on the green grass, and my aunt screamed and dragged me. Finally, we fell on the grass together, and we both hugged and clubbed I tumbled down the steep slope quickly. Finally, I slowly stopped at the edge of the river bed with fresh air. I just pressed on my aunt.
I grinned and gawked at my aunt, who also looked at me with her eyes staring at me. Then, they all burst into laughter: “ha ha, it’s so funny, so funny!”
I continue to oppress on the old lady, feeling the special soft and fragrant smell of the old lady. She breathes heavily and hugs me affectionately. I stick my small mouth to her face. She takes advantage of the opportunity to open her lips. We kiss in silence. The sweet liquid of Gu Gu’s mouth gives me endless aftertaste in this intimate heat During the kiss, I gradually fell in love with my aunt.
After a long time, I finally got up from my aunt. She seemed to have more than enough. She sat down in front of me with a smile and arranged my collar like a little adult, and she was very sincere in helping me tie the loose buttons.
the old aunt sat up and picked off a bright little wild flower: “big nephew, do you know the name of this flower
“I don’t know!”
I shook my head.
“Horseshoe flower, this is horseshoe flower! Do you see, does she look like a horseshoe? ”
“Like, it’s a little bit like it!”
the grandfather who had finished the pig grass came over with a heavy wicker basket on his back: “old girl, don’t play, it’s late, let’s go home, big black pig must be hungry!”
“Well, go home!”
My aunt and I held hands and jumped off the dam happily. I suddenly looked up and suddenly found that there was a sparse and sparse forest not far from the dam. I immediately looked like a cheerful bird, regardless of the obstruction of my grandfather and aunt, and flew into the woods.
If you look up, there are mounds of tombs scattered in the silent woods. In front of those simple mounds, there are rough stone tablets, on which are engraved with messy handwriting: the tomb of ××, whose ancestral home is Xianxian County, Hebei Province; the tomb of ×, whose ancestral home is Liaocheng, Shandong Province; the tomb of ×, whose ancestral home is Shandong cities
“Big nephew, come out quickly!”
Standing outside the small trees, the old lady called out timidly, “don’t run to the cemetery, there are ghosts in it!”
my grandfather put down the wicker basket, gasped for breath, and ran to the woods. When he saw me in front of a stone tablet, my grandfather pulled my arm: “let’s go, grandson, a disordered grave post, what’s good to see, let’s go!”
“Grandfather, are people buried here when they are dead?”
my grandfather replied with great certainty: “if we die, we will be buried here. Later, if our grandfather dies, we will have to bury here! Hey, no one can run away from the Liaohe River. Sooner or later, they have to be buried by the Liaohe River! Grandson, “grandson,”
he said, my grandfather was a little excited. He took my hand and said, “grandson, come here.” my grandfather pulled me to two small mounds. While pointing to the stone tablet in front of the mounds, he pressed my head: “grandson, get down on your knees, give you the first and second grand master, kowtow!”
Gudong — my grandfather who loves me a lot, even when he touches me, he doesn’t dare to use too much force to treat me, as if to treat a precious porcelain. He is always careful. But now, in front of two ordinary small mounds of soil, my grandfather suddenly makes a strong force and sends out a force that I can’t imagine and presses me Kneeling in front of the two small mounds, I knelt in front of the two mounds and looked at the handwriting on the stone tablet: the tomb of Zhang XX, whose ancestral home is Laizhou, Shandong Province!
my grandfather said in a trembling voice, “your great grandson, kowtow to you There is a successor in Lao Zhang’s family! ”
Said, grandfather began to press my head: “quick, quick, big grandson, kowtow to the grand master and the second Lord!”
Gudong – Gudong – Gudong – under the pressure of my grandfather’s dry palms, I felt confused and reluctantly knocked three loud heads to two small mounds. At last, my grandfather pulled me up lovingly. I still looked at the two small mounds. If I had thought about it, I could not say what I had thought. When I heard grandfather’s call, I looked in front of the two small mounds After you died, where should your ancestral home be written on your stone tablet
after hearing my question, my grandfather replied without thinking: “Oh, this, do you still need to ask, ancestral home: Laizhou, Shandong Province!”
“What about me, grandfather? When I die, where should my ancestral home be written on the stone tablet? ”
my grandfather couldn’t help laughing, and gently pinched my little face: “son of a bitch, don’t talk nonsense, you are still far away from death! What’s more, grandfather can’t tell what happened at that time! ”
my grandfather picked up the heavy wicker basket again and said with emotion: “people, just like the crops in front of us, are living and living, and dying and dying again and again on the edge of the Liao River. They are endless and endless!”
“No, no, Dad, I don’t want to die, I don’t want to die, I’m afraid of death, I don’t want to die!”
my grandfather patted my aunt’s head: “OK, OK, my old girl will not die, my old girl will not die, she will never die, she will always live!…”
“Wang, Wang, Wang,…”
I don’t know when the rhubarb dog slipped back home in advance. At the moment, he is sitting at the gate of the courtyard. He walks and talks to us. He wags his tail and barks at us.
before I went into the yard, I saw him standing in the yard with a cigarette in his hand and looking at me with a smile. I was overjoyed, like a happy swallow, flying into the yard happily: “uncle, third uncle,”
the third uncle threw away the cigarette butts and picked me up with both arms Come: “big nephew, my big nephew is coming!”
my grandfather pointed to a young man behind the third uncle and said, “grandson, he is your uncle!”
The young old uncle was very shy. He gave me a little smile, then lowered his head, swung the iron hoe, and got busy.
“Choking — choking — choking….”
The big black pig, which had been hungry for a long time, was following his grandfather’s back. He raised his big fat head and put out his red tongue in an attempt to grab the tender grass in the wicker basket.
“Choking — choking — choking….”
Crash — grandfather’s body slightly back, a crash, the wicker basket rolled to the ground, the big black pig was immediately elated, a head on the tender grass pile, choked to chew.
My grandfather took a breath, wiped his sweat, sat on a small wooden stool, looked at the big black pig, and said to me, “Alas, it’s not easy to raise a pig, grandson. Now it’s very difficult. People can’t eat enough. The pig has nothing to feed. To raise this pig, my grandfather has to go to the Liaohe River to hunt pig grass every day, This big black pig is really pitiful. It’s too big to eat a grain of corn. “Ha, grandson, today’s Spring Festival, my grandfather will kill the pig’s new year pig to improve your life!”
looking at the big black pig eating too much, my naughty instinct was revealed again. I grabbed a willow branch and pricked the fat butt of the big black pig playfully.
“Choking — choking — choking….”
The big black pig wagged his little tail and hummed impatiently, “choking, choking…”
The big black pig didn’t want to bear my unreasonable harassment. He threw away the little tender grass left. He was very unhappy and slipped into the backyard of his grandmother’s house. I also followed him in a desperate pursuit.
Wow, as soon as I stepped into my grandmother’s backyard, I was excited and looked at the towering jujube trees and the green sweet jujube trees. I was happy to clap my hands. I saw a slender bamboo pole in the corner of the wall, so I pulled it into my hand. I raised my head and stared at the green jujube with my eyes. I beat them hard with the bamboo pole, slapping, slapping, one by one Green jujube in response to the sound, hit my head impolitely, so painful that I had to throw away the long bamboo pole, frown, cover any faint pain in the head melon.
“Cheep, cheep, cheep, gee, gee, Gee!”
I followed the reputation and hung a large bird’s nest on the high gable behind my grandmother’s house. Several lovely little swallows came in and went out leisurely. I stood up and grabbed the long bamboo pole again to destroy the swallow’s nest. I held the bamboo pole in both hands and held my breath Sucking, the bamboo pole gradually attacked the bird’s nest. I was about to make a severe blow. Suddenly, a powerful big hand pinched my arm like a pair of tongs. I looked back and saw that it was my grandmother. She said to me kindly, “grandson, it’s not OK. It’s not easy for a swallow to build a nest. How can you bear to smash its home? Grandson, there is a nest of little swallows in the nest. You can tamp it Where do they live in their nests? ”
Hearing my grandmother’s words, I threw away the bamboo pole, hugged my grandmother’s thigh, and repeatedly begged: “grandma, grandma, grab the swallow for me, grab the swallow for me quickly!”
grandma always explained patiently, “land and land, little swallow, can’t be caught!”
I asked, “grandma, why can’t swallow catch it?”
“If you catch a swallow, it will make your eyes angry!”
The old lady interposed from the side: “the little swallow can’t catch, catch the swallow, the eye will be blind!”
“No, grandma, I don’t believe it. Grandma, I’m going to catch the swallow to play!”
“Grandson, little swallows can’t be caught. They come to visit grandma’s house every year, and grandma knows them. If grandma catches them, they will never visit grandma’s house again next year. Lu Lu Lu, you can stand in the yard and see how beautiful the little swallows are.”
no matter how hard I am, my grandmother does not hesitate to adhere to her basic principle that she can never catch a swallow. She is so angry that I can’t catch a swallow. Her nameless anger is poured out on the innocent big black pig: “I’ll kill you, I’ll kill you!”
I was carrying a long bamboo pole, chasing the poor big black pig all over the yard, beating its fat body mercilessly. The big black pig snorted and snorted helplessly.
I finally blocked the big black pig in a dead corner. The big black pig looked at me in despair with his mouth full of coquettishness. I stretched out the bamboo pole with a smile and shook it defiantly in front of the big black pig.
in a hurry, the big black pig with nowhere to escape simply smashed the wooden stick beside him and rolled into the stream outside the hospital with a thud and struggled.
“Woof, woof, woof,”
when I saw the big black pig in the water, the rhubarb dog didn’t know whether to pity it or laugh at it, and kept barking at it. I transferred my resentment to the rhubarb dog again. The long bamboo pole danced wildly at the rhubarb dog, whipped the innocent rhubarb dog whining and fled to the road recklessly, He did not dare to come back. He stood on the road in despair, watching the dog house I overturned and weeping.
I happily threw it away to the bamboo pole. When I saw the tiger skin cat wandering on the window sill, I grabbed its long tail. The angry tiger skin cat didn’t eat me. It turned its head and roared. Its claws mercilessly drew a painful blood mark on the back of my hand.
“Oh,” exclaimed the old lady, and took my arm: “Oh, this damned cat, look at my big nephew’s scratch.”
after that, she grabbed a handful of soot: “come on, put some ash on it, and tomorrow, it will be OK! Big nephew, don’t tease the dog with the cat in the future
The grandmother, who was busy cooking, called out to the old lady in the room: “chrysanthemum, hurry up, get a bottle of soy sauce for mom!”
the old aunt ran into the house and quickly carried an empty bottle. I followed her behind her. When she came to the small corner door of the backyard, she said to me in an adult voice: “nephew, listen to my aunt’s words, don’t go out, someone hits you! I’ll be back soon when I get soy sauce. When I come back, I’ll take you to play! ”
Holding my little hand which was scratched by the tiger fur cat, I stood at the corner door of the backyard, and the old lady’s figure soon disappeared at the end of the lane.
on the opposite side of the lane, there are more than ten little boys whose age is almost the same as mine. One of them is a little boy with a dirty nose and holds a homemade red tassel in his hand. He proudly brandishes a crude red tassel at me: “Hello, who are you? Why don’t I know you?”
“Land and land!”
I let go of my injured hand and forgot my aunt’s advice. I followed the sound and walked over: “Lulu, my name is Lulu!”
“Who are you from Lao Zhang’s family? Why didn’t I see you before
The dirty nose continued to dish with the tone of checking household registration. I replied, “I’m the grandson of grandma! I just came to grandma’s house a few days ago
“Ha ha ha ha”
the other little boys burst out laughing and looked at me repeatedly with mockery eyes. The dirty nose nodded: “Oh, I know. I know. Hello, Lao Zhang’s grandson, do you want to play with us
“Yes,” I nodded.
“Well, let’s go.”
Therefore, I joined the ranks of these little boys without thinking. I completely forgot my aunt’s warning and ran out of the alley behind my dirty nose
