Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 07
“Ha, how lively
I clapped my hands and tried to jump into the yard of the production team.
My aunt pulled my sleeve: “nephew, what do you want to do?”
“Go to the production team. It’s so busy. There are so many people!”
I didn’t listen to my aunt’s advice. I broke away from her arm and jumped into the yard of the production team with a thump.
People were happily gathering around the dead cattle which had been stripped to pieces. No one noticed my appearance. The intellectuals working on the opposite side looked at me with indifference. I looked around the strange yard and found that there was a large warehouse beside me. I slipped in quietly.
Haha, it’s funny. The huge warehouse has no storage. It’s empty. I wander aimlessly on the land full of millet and grass. My toe accidentally kicks a ear of corn cob which is yellow and orange in the grass. I look down and lift my toe, and kick the corn cob out.
Looking at the rolling corn cobs, I suddenly think of my grandmother’s table, think of the astringent, but it is precious corn potstickers: Although the corn flour is not delicious, very astringent, but even so, the grandmother family can not open their stomach, eat casually, not to mention all can eat.
I think of my father and uncle trying to mail corn flour to grandma’s home.
Ah – corn, corn, you can’t look at it, but it’s the golden food for the poor.
I went to the corn cob that I had kicked away for no reason, gently picked it up, put it in front of my eyes, and gazed for a long time. I murmured in my heart: take this corn cob back to the dairy house!
I had just arrived at the door of the warehouse with corn cob in my hand. An old man was over 60 years old. He was bloated and smelled of tobacco. What was particularly funny was that a large and red meat bag protruded conspicuously at the upper right end of his sauce like head. Seeing his appearance, I could not describe it.
the old man with a big meat bag pointed his long cigarette stick at the corn cob in my hand: “this is the corn cob of the production team, it is the property of the country, you can’t take it at will, send it back to the warehouse!”
“I, I, I didn’t take it. I just played casually. After that, I’ll put it back in place.”
the old man said with a kind smile: “you are very clever. Whose child are you? Why haven’t I met you, eh?”
“Laozhang’s, I’m from Zhangjiakou,”
The old man took a mouthful of poor tobacco, and a pair of dark eyes were staring at me for a long time: “old Zhang Jia? Lao Zhang, well, why haven’t I seen you? Well, “
I stopped paying attention to him and slipped into the warehouse again. I was determined to steal this corn cob back to my grandmother’s house and let her family have a good meal. But how can I steal it back?
I hold the corn cob and take a glance at the empty warehouse. Ha, yes, the back wall of the warehouse is closely connected with the yard of grandma’s house. There is a broken window with grinning teeth on the back wall. I am inspired. I lift my little hand, and the heavy corn cob swish through the broken window and fly into the yard of grandma’s house.
Excitedly, I squatted down and picked up a spike. I threw the broken window sash and threw it into my grandmother’s yard. The more I worked, the more satisfied I was. One ear of corn was thrown into my grandmother’s yard one after another. When I saw that there was no corn cob in the warehouse any more, I finally patted the dust on my hand, and happily slipped out of the warehouse and over the adobe wall, Back to grandma’s yard.
I pulled the wicker basket that my grandfather used to carry the pig grass, picked up the corn cobs scattered in the yard one by one into the wicker basket, and then dragged the heavy wicker basket: “grandma, grandma,”
“ah, grandson, what’s the matter?”
Grandma followed the sound and saw me pulling the wicker basket full of corn cobs. She looked at me in surprise. She looked at the broken window of the warehouse of the production team, and immediately understood everything: “grandson,”
grandma grabbed the wicker basket: “this is not good, it’s a thief’s thing!”
With that, my grandmother lifted the wicker basket very easily with her wrist. Her other hand held me: “go, force, let’s send it back to the production team!”
I followed my grandmother and walked out of the courtyard. “Grandma, it’s useless to put this kind of corn in the warehouse. If people trample on it, the donkey will also gnaw it.”
“that’s not good. It belongs to the production team. If you put it there, you can’t take it. Understand, grandson,”
just walked into the yard of the production team “Lao Yang Bao, Lao Yang Bao!”
the old man with a big meat bag on his head welcomed him, and his grandmother put the wicker basket on the ground: “hee hee, Lao Yang Bao, it was thrown into my yard when my grandson was naughty. I sent it back!”
Lao yangbao said goodbye to his trousers and pinched my face with his rough big hand: “boy, you told me to play casually. How, they all played in the yard of Lao Zhang’s family. Haha, what a naughty bag
He turned his head to his grandmother again: “Hey, Mrs. Zhang, you are serious enough. Forget it. This broken corn is rotten there. If a child is naughty, please pull it down!”
“That’s not good.”
grandma poured all the corn cobs in the wicker basket back into the warehouse. Lao yangbao looked at me with a smile and asked his grandmother, “who are you? I haven’t seen you before!”
when I heard Lao yangbao’s words, my grandmother’s face immediately appeared proud and said happily: “Lao yangbao, of course you don’t know him, he is my eldest son’s boy, my grandson!”
Lao Yang Bao’s eyes lit up: “Huo Huo, that is, is the son of dacangzi who studied big books and left su? Well, let me have a look, let me have a look, let me have a good look! Well, not to mention, he looks like his father
Lao Yang Bao patted me on the shoulder and continued: “haha, like your father, really like your father, not only care about the family, especially like your father, the clever power of climbing over the wall, more like dacangzi when he was a child.”
grandma and Lao Yang Bao Han had a quarrel, then took my hand and went home. My grandmother earnestly warned me: “grandson, no matter how difficult or poor you are, you can’t be When you reach out to steal other people’s things, a gentleman loves money and takes it in a proper way. ”
grandma just stepped into the house, and behind me came bursts of shouts: “Hello, grandma,” @ @
I looked back, and there stood a tall, handsome and free and easy-going young man outside the door. He was full of laughter and respectfully said to his grandmother: “grandma, this evening, the team is going to hold a duel meeting. Grandma, you must participate in it Don’t be like last time, say, as a result, when roll call, you will be short of grandma
My Aunt quietly pulled me: “he is the captain, my big nephew
grandma said with a wry smile, “Yongwei, your grandfather suddenly fell ill at the last meeting. I’d like to go, but your grandfather is smoking and panting. My grandson, do you dare to leave home
grandma’s grandson’s captain said with a look of embarrassment: “grandma, my grandfather is sick. You can’t leave home, so you can’t leave home. This time, you must attend the meeting on time. Oh, the commune has new regulations. If you don’t take part in the revolutionary activities organized by the production team, you will have to deduct work points at the end of the year.”
the big cousin came into the room and asked his grandfather with concern: “how are you doing, grandfather
“Well, it’s OK.”
The grandfather on the Kang scornfully said to his grandson, “hum, you people, you are not in proper shape. All year round, you don’t do anything serious, either singing or dancing, or holding combative meetings. Alas, who can hold such ups and downs? I don’t believe it. If you sing with your voice, dance with your hips twisted, and shout slogans with your fists, you can have a good meal, wear warm clothes and live a good life? Oh, it’s really out of shape. What can we do about it
my big cousin sighed: “my grandfather, I can’t help it either. The superior has spirit.”
“Hey, hey, my aunt and I stood in the outer room, and I said to the old aunt in a provocative tone:” Auntie, don’t you say that the captain is your big nephew? Dare you call him? I’ll listen to him! ”
the old aunt turned her lips at me: “big nephew, big nephew,”
“ah, my big cousin should have answered. Then, she came to us with a little pitiful meanness on her face:” Auntie, what’s the matter? ”
“No, no, it’s no big deal!”
My aunt gave me a proud smile and pointed to my big cousin: “big nephew, this is your cousin!”
big cousin nodded: “Auntie, I know, my mother told me, little cousin,”
the captain pinched my face kindly: “one day to visit my big cousin’s house, aunt,”
the big cousin politely said goodbye to the old aunt: “Auntie, I have to go, I have something else to do!”
The old lady waved her hand triumphantly: “go, go, get busy with your business.”
When the big cousin came out of the house, the old aunt said to me with a look of pride: “how about, nephew, although your big cousin is the captain, no matter how powerful in the production team, but when you come to me, you have to behave yourself. Ha ha, who let me be his aunt!”
grandma interrupted the chattering grandfather: “old man, you should stop a few times. You’d better think about who should go to the meeting. You didn’t listen to your grandson. If you don’t go, you’ll have to pay off your work points!”
my grandfather said angrily, “I’m not going to go there anyway!”
“You, the damned old man!”
Granny tiger face yelled: “you, this is also called the head of the family, nothing will come out, ah, this is also called a big man!”
“I can’t stand it!”
“Grandfather insisted:” I just can’t stand it, no shape! ”
the second aunt interposed: “my father is not willing to go, so don’t make it difficult for him. Let me go!”
grandma pointed to his grandfather and murmured: “you, you, your books are useless. What are you used to and can’t stand? What does it have to do with you, a grassroots? If you can’t stand it, let the child come out first. How old is the child? In case something happens, it’s too late to regret.
Don’t you forget that in the year of the agrarian reform, if you don’t go to fight the landlords, you’ll let dacangzi go. That night, when he came back from a meeting, he didn’t sleep well. As soon as he closed his eyes, he yelled: “I’m afraid, I’m afraid, I’m afraid. When I saw the child scared like that, I didn’t sleep all night, so I held dachangzi for the whole night.
I asked him: takakuro, what are you afraid of?
Don’t you hear what the child said: Mom – I’m afraid, they are really cruel. They hang the landlord on the beam, take off their pants, and beat them to the death. While beating, they ask him: where are all your gold and silver hidden? The landlord says: No, no, I have nothing. You can confiscate them.
However, they did not believe it, or beat to death, finally, only heard a sound, from the landlord’s smashed buttocks, Chi Chi Chi to flee out of the stinky thin excrement “Grandma said more and more excited:” you, you, you, ah, you, nothing big or small, it’s all about dachangzi. When dividing the land, the working group asked each family to send a person with four wooden pegs. For this matter, you also asked dachangzi. The team leader led them to the ground. As soon as the grenades were thrown and a bang was heard, everyone began to run to the ground and find a match In the right place, they nail the nail to cover the land. However, dachangzi is too small to run away from the big men. As a result, the good land has been occupied by others, and dachangzi only occupies a waterlogged depression that no one wants!
“Hum,” my grandfather is still eloquent: “I just can’t stand it. I just don’t want to go. That’s not true. Hum “Mom -” aunt tugged at Grandma’s sleeve:
don’t make any noise. Dad is not feeling well. If he doesn’t want to go, don’t go. I’ll go. I’ll go to the meeting!
“Er Gu,” when I heard about the quarrel between my grandfather and grandma, I was very interested in the duel meeting to be held in the evening. When I heard that the second aunt was going to replace the grandfather who didn’t want to appear in public at will, I grabbed her jade hand and begged: “Er Gu, I want to go, too!
@ P > my grandfather warned, “grandson, you can’t go. Maybe something will go wrong.”
when I heard that something would go wrong, I was more excited. However, looking at the serious expression on my grandfather’s face, I couldn’t help being disappointed. I sat down on the ground with a plop and cried loudly: “Oh – I’m going, I’m going, I’m going to go, too, ouch…”
