Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 13
Since I came to grandma’s house and discovered the pond at the village mouth accidentally, I have been very fond of this place. I always look for any chance, try my best to avoid the monitoring of grandma and aunt, sneak into the pond at the village mouth, and play freely.
I catch fish, mussels and loach in the pond. I catch dragonflies, butterflies and frogs in the woods beside the pond.
The clever old uncle, with sorghum rod to tie me into a small cage with exquisite shape, at the same time, in the farm tools factory, welded to make iron bars for me glass box, my trophy is more and more, soon filled with small cage, filled with glass box.
Looking at the colorful small insects in the cage and the water creatures in the glass box, I am so proud that I can’t do it myself. My greed is growing day by day, and I am more crazy about fishing and catching.
My palm and foot were repeatedly lacerated. The wound bitten by blood sucking insects on my left leg has not been healed completely. The insect who can not be named on the right shoulder has torn a long wound.
“Little force, little force, little force,…”
I was squatting in the pond and tugging at a black loach. Grandma found the pond in a hurry: “little force, little force, little force,….”
Grandma pulled me out of the pond with no good will: “little Lizi, how can you do if you are so disobedient and drowned? How can I tell your father and mother!”
I was in grandma’s chatter of the trivial voice, holding the fluttering black loach, reluctantly walked home.
I snapped the loach into the glass box, sat on the Kang, and nibbled at my fingers.
auntie, Auntie and several little women’s partners are sitting around the Kang, sewing the cloth mat like a competition: “how fast is the sewing of the second sister!”
The old lady admired the second aunt, who was flying through the line: “I haven’t sewed one yet, and the second sister has sewed four, alas
Under the windowsill, there were a series of neat, square cloth mats.
Sewing cloth mats is a very fast income generating channel for local girls and daughters-in-law to save private housing money. When they go to the farm, they buy piles of rags at very low prices. Then they sit on the Kang with their legs. Besides eating and sleeping, they sew, mend and even. They accumulate to a certain amount of money, and they will wrap their work together Move fruit, take the small commuter train in the south end of the town, and send it to the steel plant to earn a little profit.
Uncle three told me that the steel plant bought these small cloth pads to wipe the lathe.
I reached out and grabbed a small cloth pad and carefully wiped my beloved glass box.
“Oh, my aunt snatched the cloth pad in my hand painfully:” big nephew, it’s a waste of money to sew one, but you use it to fish bowl. It’s a waste of money to buy rags! ”
“I want to,”
I sit in the middle of my aunt and aunt 2 with a great deal of breath, grab the cloth and touch the line group. The second aunt softly advised: “don’t mess up, big nephew, and my aunt sews the little cushion to earn money and buy you delicious ones! Listen to the words, play with yourself, “cried the grandmother who was pasting the cloth on the Kang tip and said,” don’t make trouble to your aunt, let her work well. Come to grandma. Listen, grandson! ”
I climbed to grandma’s side again, very boring, and then stabbed the paste basin with my fingers. Grandma hurriedly removed the paste basin: “Oh, how can I stay idle for a while, this child!”
“Grandma,” I asked puzzledly, “what are you doing with this thing?”
“Fight, after drying, sell it to the shoe factory, make money, so that I can buy food for my grandson. Grandson, don’t be naughty. Come on, listen to grandma telling you stories! Would you like to listen? ”
“OK, grandma, you talk!”
“Once upon a time! There is a mother, she has three children, the boss called the latch, the second called the hanging, the third, that is, the mother’s old son, called a goosebump. One day
“No, no, grandma, I’ve heard about it!”
“Yes, you heard that? Oh, look at Grandma’s memory. OK, grandma will tell you a new one today. ”
Grandma put a paste on it: “once upon a time, a girl, who went to the pond to wash her clothes, suddenly came a monkey essence, grabbed the girl and ran. The girl was frightened and cried and cried, and she didn’t know where monkey essence would take her…”
“Grandma,” I asked, stupidly, “which pond did she wash, the pond where I caught the fish?”
“Yes, it’s the pond. I think you will not listen to grandma’s words later, and always steal to catch fish. If you don’t listen to it, you still go down the river to take a bath, and monkey essence will take you away.”
Grandma said that she was right. She continued to say, “I will not be able to do it The girl’s mother has already made dinner at home, so she waits for the girl who is washing her clothes to come back to dinner. However, she can’t see the girl back when she waits left, and she can’t see the girl back in the right. The next day, the girl still did not come back, mother was scared, she ran to the pond in panic, only to see the water side of the water put the girl’s unfinished clothes and washing basin, but her girl disappeared.
Mother cried: my child, my child, where is my child!
A magpie flies over and falls on the tree top of the river, and says to her mother: don’t cry. If you want to find your daughter, come with me!
Mother dry tears, follow magpie forward, go, walk, go, go, also do not know how far out, can put mother tired.
There is a cave in front of it.
Magpie said to her mother: your daughter is in this cave. You can go in and find her quickly. After that, magpie will fly away alone.
Mother bravely into the black cave, deep foot shallow foot to move forward, turn a bend, after the cave suddenly bright, everything clearly.
Mother went to the bottom of the cave and finally saw her girl. She had become a daughter-in-law for monkey essence and gave birth to a little monkey.
Mother took her daughter’s hand and said, “go, let’s go home.”.
The girl said timidly: Mom, no, you can hide quickly. After a while, monkey essence will come back and see you, and will eat you.
In the speaking room, monkey essence has entered the cave, and her daughter hurriedly hides her mother in the suitcase.
Monkey into the bottom of the hole, nose constantly smell that: there is a human taste, a taste, must be someone has come.
Finally, in the suitcase, monkey Jing grabbed the girl’s mother out: who are you?
Why come to me?
I’m going to eat you today.
The girl said in a hurry: you can’t eat her. She is my mother.
Monkey Jing heard, laughed: ah, it turns out that the mother-in-law has come, disrespectful and disrespectful. You don’t have to be afraid. I can’t eat my mother-in-law. You two wait. I’ll take some dishes to entertain the mother-in-law who is coming from afar.
After that, monkey essence turned around and lost its shadow.
Mother also led her daughter to escape, daughter said: No, mom, monkey is fine and smart, where can we run him, sooner or later, he must catch back.
The two women are trying to escape together. Monkey essence has already carried a large basket of vegetables and returned to the bottom of the hole.
Three people began to eat, at the table, mom asked monkey Jing with concern: my son-in-law, how are your eyes so red, this is sick, why don’t you look for a doctor?
Hi, monkey essence while gnawing at the pig elbow said: mother-in-law, my red eye disease is a long-term old problem, not less to find a doctor to show, how to see is not good, no way, let it go.
Mom said: my family has a secret recipe that can cure your red eye disease.
Monkey fine listen, happy: mother-in-law, then please show me.
Mom said: after dinner, you go out and buy two Jin of flour, a wall paper paste, I will treat you eye disease.
Monkey essence happily threw the pig elbow that had not finished, and ran out of the cave to buy flour and wallpaper.
Mother boiled the flour bought by monkey essence into paste, and then led the monkey essence to the entrance of the mountain and let the monkey essence face the sun. Mother stuck one wallpaper after another onto the monkey essence’s eyes. After that, she told him: you must not move before the wallpaper is dried, or you will lose the power of medicine and cannot cure your eye disease.
The old monkey stood at the entrance of the mountain and let the hot sun shine on his eyes.
Mother took her daughter, left the little monkey, and quietly slipped out of the hole to run to his home.
Monkey essence was sun dried: mother-in-law, sun dried, mother-in-law, has been dried.
Where there is any mother-in-law ah, only his monkey cub in the hole crying for his mother.
The monkey spirit could not wait any longer. He tore off the wallpaper on his eyes and went to the bottom of the cave to see that he had been cheated by his mother-in-law. He carried the monkey cubs and ran after them!
“No, but the monkey spirit found the girl’s house. The girl locked the door tightly to prevent him from entering the house. The monkey spirit came to the house with the baby monkey on her back every day. As soon as she arrived, she sat on the stove and talked the girl out to live with him.
The girl’s mother is very angry. It will be a head if it goes on like this.
In the early morning of the next day, she and her daughter prepared enough firewood to make the stove hot before the monkey essence came.
The monkey spirit didn’t know. He came back again with his monkey cub on his back. As soon as he entered the door, he and his father sat down on the stove. Ouch, the two monkeys jumped up and spread their legs and ran out. They didn’t dare to come to the girl’s house again.
From then on, the monkey’s buttocks will become red!
“Hahaha, it’s fun, it’s fun. Let’s talk about one more time!
“Oh, grandson, it’s noon. Grandma should cook. I’ll tell you later!”
“Oh, no fun!”
I was disappointed to climb to one side, and flipped through the comic book that had already been flipped over: “ha, grandma, this Japanese devil digs at mines. As a result, he pinched and scratched, but he did not get to the mines. Ha, it’s so funny, so funny!”
the grandmother in front of the kitchen stove unconsciously scolded: “deserve it, deserve it, Japanese devils, the most damned bad!”
I put down the old, endless comic book: “grandma, Japanese devil, is it really bad
“Hum, there is nothing worse than the Japanese. It’s so bad that it’s so bad that it’s pus on the top and water runs down from the bottom.”
when it comes to Japanese devils, my grandmother gets angry. She waves the firestick fiercely: “if they come back now, my old lady will have to fight with them even if they come back. Grandson, you don’t know, wow, if the Japanese don’t leave for another two years, the Chinese will have to let them go to hell. That year, your third uncle was ill. I carried him to the city to see a doctor. I didn’t know the words. I didn’t know how to do it. I went into the foreign street in a muddle
“Yangjie, grandma, what is Yangjie?”
“Oh, it’s the street where the Japanese live. We Chinese are not allowed to enter. Grandma didn’t know the words. She didn’t know. She went in.
At that time, those well-dressed Japanese women on the street, with brooms in their hands, chased me to fight. I was young at that time, and I ran fast, so I didn’t get a few brooms.
The Japanese are the most hateful. They grow big cigarettes, but they don’t smoke them. They only smoke for the Chinese. The Chinese have no real prospects. If they have money, they smoke big cigarettes, and the money is sent to others.
In the past, there was a big landlord named Liuba in Liuhao. Almost all the good land and fertile land in Quanbao belonged to his Liuba family. After smoking, the more addicted he was, the more he smoked, the more he smoked. Later, the Japanese asked him to smoke for nothing. He could smoke as much as he could. When he died, he had to give his corpse to them. Japanese, I heard, smoked heavily After death, bones can be used as medicinal materials.
“Grandma, have you ever smoked a big cigarette?
How about smoking?
“Yes, I did. One year I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I was going to die. Your grandfather bought me a couple of cannons for smoking. I’ve smoked all these cannons. Hell, I’m well. The smoke is really strong. After smoking, I feel like the wind is blowing at my feet. I don’t know where the strength comes from. ”
“Did you smoke later?”
“My God, my child, who can afford to smoke? You have to smoke all the money. A cigarette cannon is worth a stone of sorghum. You have to eat well to smoke. You can’t afford to eat coarse grain. I cut big fireworks for the Japanese. When I came out, I had to take off all the fireworks and check them. I was afraid of stealing their cigarettes. ”
“Grandma, what’s wrong with Japan? Why didn’t he stay in China
“Let people run away?”
“Who let go?”
“Everyone has them. They should be beaten. They are not objects. At that time, there were many planes in the sky, buzzing all day long and throwing bombs into the city. At night, you can see that there are countless planes fighting in the sky.
Scared your aunt straight cry, we dare not sleep all day, afraid that the plane will fall down and kill us.
Japanese paint on the road, emitting a stream of black smoke to cover factories and mines, so that planes in the sky can’t see the ground clearly.
The Japanese plane can’t beat the American plane, but the American plane is too big.
Once, the Japanese used their own small plane to knock down an American’s big plane. With black smoke coming from the rear of the plane’s buttocks, it flew over from our roof, and even the treetops were scratched. The pilots in the plane could see clearly that they were like driving a car, and they were also holding things like steering wheel to and fro.
“Grandma talked, while learning the way pilots fly airplanes:” Americans are really good. They didn’t let the plane fall into the burger. If that plane fell into our burger, it would be bad. I don’t know how many people will die and how many houses will be burned down.
Later, it fell into the earth, and heard a roar, shaking the house flickering.
Everyone ran to see it. Your father and I went to join in the fun. Your father also picked up a lot of mother and son shells, which were as long as chopsticks and were made of copper.
There was also a burned man in the plane, with his arms and legs shrinking.
“With that, my grandmother learned from the pathetic look of the burned pilot:” not long after that, the Japanese arrived in their cars, and they surrounded the plane, and no one was allowed to get close to it. They were not allowed to pick up the mother’s shell.
After a few days, they pulled the plane to the city for exhibition. They said that it was the Japanese air force that took down the best and largest plane in the United States. It seems that it was B29. Hum, it was not they who did it. It was a collision. The elderly people in our burger all know about it.
“What about the people who fly airplanes?
“They parachuted, and there were several people in the sky pulling a balloon like object down bit by bit. The Japanese caught them all, and none of them ran away. Where could they run. Those Americans are much better than the Chinese. The Japanese said nothing. In the end, they all starved to death. ”
“Who is better than the Chinese?”
Grandma doubted my words.
“Yes, they are better than the Chinese. The Chinese are lazy. As long as you go to the field, you can see which piece of rice is Chinese, which is Japanese, which is Korean. The rice planted by Chinese people is certainly not as meticulous and meticulous as Japanese and Korean people. Oh, OK, OK, dinner is good, Ju Zi, put the table quickly, eat
