Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 142:
“Brother Li, wake up.”
I was enjoying the crucian carp cooked by my aunt and the sweet and delicious beer in my dream. The iron eggs shook my arm hard, which interrupted my dream very annoyingly. I opened my eyes reluctantly. I saw an agricultural tractor on the road, and a thick cable went down the roadbed from the back of the tractor and hooked up the slope On the car.
“Oh, I finally found the tractor. That’s great.”
I gave a blow, and I immediately got my spirits up. I started the car with a click, and then the tractor got full power and pulled the car onto the road easily: “Oh, this time, it’s so hard to get out of the door. It’s so hard for us to get rid of all the good things!”
When the car climbed the road again, I patted my collapsed stomach with great chagrin: “Oh, my stomach is so hungry, iron eggs, we have to find a restaurant first and have something to eat!”
“Good, brother Li”
Tiedan put his head out of the window: “let me see, where is a hotel!”
Tiedan and I were looking around impatiently. Suddenly, a stern middle-aged man appeared in the middle of the road, waving his arms coldly to our car: “stop stop!”
I had to slow down the car and poke my head out: “friend, what’s up
The middle-aged man yelled: “stop, stop!”
the iron egg picked up the window and asked, “what’s the matter?”
“What’s the matter?”
the middle-aged man pointed at the newly paved road and said: “why, what do you say? Who told you to drive your car here? Well, you don’t have eyes, don’t you see?
The road is being built here, and the roads are all closed. You dare to break in, get down, get down quickly, and pay a fine!
“What –” iron egg is so stupid: “do you want to be fined?
“Yes, fine, the road was crushed by your car just after it was paved, and before the asphalt was poured, it was crushed by your car. You can see, you can see, the good road surface is broken by you, and you will be fined,”
according to the regulations, 18 yuan per meter, Hello, where do you come from? Well, let me calculate How much is the penalty? ”
seeing the middle-aged man calculating seriously, I grinned bitterly, and said in my heart: “my God, one meter, a fine of 18 yuan, which should be calculated carefully, it is astronomical. Who can afford it, would you like to give the car to you!
Thinking of this, I jumped out of the car, a tired face said: “brother, don’t forget, don’t forget, this fine, no one can afford it! My friend, if you have any idea, just say it clearly! ”
the middle-aged man stopped the competition: “yes, no one can afford the fine. You can discuss it and see how much money you can get!”
I took out a fifty dollar bill and handed it over.
The middle-aged man said angrily: “what, 50 yuan, this is not good, I said, you coax the child! What a joke
I took out a 50 yuan bill: “brother, just take care of us. We did not know how many difficulties we encountered along the way. The money has been almost spent. My friend, I’m not afraid of your jokes. We don’t even have enough money for gas!”
“Hum, that’s it. I’m a good talker, and I’ll make you cheap.”
the man hesitantly took two bills and slowly put them into his coat pocket: “all right, you go. Remember, you must hurry up. Otherwise, after a while, the workers will go to work and someone will stop you. At that time, 100 yuan can’t solve the problem Yes
as soon as I heard it, I grabbed the middle-aged man who was about to leave and said, “brother, don’t go in a hurry. You can do your best and send us out!”
“No, I have something else to do,” the middle-aged man flatly refused: “I don’t have time to hang around with you!”
“My friend, however, what can we do if we encounter a bus stop again? And a fine? ”
the middle-aged man showed a rogue look: “I can’t manage so much, my task is only responsible for this section!”
“Listen to me, man. Let’s talk about it.”
I’m begging for a middle-aged man, a thin but energetic young man. I don’t know when, standing behind me quietly: “Dad, what are you doing?”
the middle-aged man said to the skinny young man through me, “they’re on the road without permission. I’ll deal with it simply!”
when the young man understood my intention, he blinked a pair of big bright eyes and said happily: “hey hey, you still want to go out? Hehe, I see, you’d better sell your car, carry some money, and walk back. Ha ha, after a while, when our captain comes, we will punish you! ”
the middle-aged man broke away from my hand: “I don’t have time to talk to you. The workers are going to work. I have to arrange for them.”
I was disappointed to see the middle-aged man disappearing, and the young man nearby volunteered: “this man, if you want to get out of this road smoothly, I can help you!”
@ P > I turned to the young man and begged, “brother, you can help us out!”
the young man immediately asked for a tip: “man, how much can you give me
“How much do you want, brother?”
“It’s too much. How about fifty?”
“Let’s go fifty, brother. All the good things we’ve done along the way are all fucked up by us. The money will cost the mother’s nose. My little brother, you can do it! Fifty yuan, already quite a lot of money, “
while I was talking, I pulled the boy into the car, and Tiedan quickly started the car.
I sat in the back side by side with the young man, smoking cigarettes, while rambling to talk: “brother, where do you work?”
“And your father?”
“We are all together! My father is in charge of the business, “
” when was the road closed? ”
“A few days later, many people still don’t know, especially foreign cars, they burst in vaguely. Ha ha, who comes in, who is unlucky!”
Seeing a young man walking slowly with an iron pick out of the window, the young man quickly put his head out of the window: “little six, you tell the captain, I have to go a little late!”
the young man with the pickaxe raised his head and said with a smile, “Xiaoping, are you doing business again?”
“Well, I’ll send them out and come back soon. You must ask for a leave and I’ll buy you a box of cigarettes when I come back!”
“Well, thank you. You go.”
I sarcastically said: “brother, it seems that you have made a lot of money this day
“Well, it’s OK, brother. It’s a rare opportunity. How many years can it take to repair the circuit?”
Dididi, the car was driving at full speed. Suddenly, a thick poplar pole was standing in the middle of the road, blocking the way of the car. Five or six young people were standing on both sides of the road, grinning at us.
Tiedan had to stop the car, from the mirror, anxiously looked at me and the young man, I happily patted the young man on the shoulder: “brother, it’s your turn to appear!”
“Brother, what I didn’t say, look at me.”
The young man threw off his cigarette butt, quickly jumped out of the car, and went to the young people with a pleasant face. They whispered to each other mysteriously. At first, the young people glanced at the car with hostility, and then, reluctantly, moved away from the tree pole.
The young man turned and waved his arm, “let’s go.”
“Goodbye, thank you, brother!”
When the car slipped past the poplar pole, I waved to the young man: “thank you, brother. Goodbye!”
“Good bye, old man.”
The car has gone through thousands of difficulties and obstacles, and we have experienced many hardships. When the beautiful sun at noon is high in the blue sky without a trace of clouds, we poor travelers finally drove into the vast Horqin prairie with great excitement.
From the morning, always show eyebrows, silent Renhua girl, looking at the magnificent prairie, can not help but shout: “momogue, momogue! Look, LIGO, momogue
I followed the girl Renhua’s finger and saw that on both sides of an uneven, narrow and intermittent sandy road, there were many low climbing mud houses scattered in disorder. Under the direct sunlight, there was a choking, mixed sand and rain smell: “this is momogue?”
I muttered disappointedly, “it’s too small! There’s nothing. Wow, it’s hard for our Mongolian gege to live in such a bad place. Alas, how she spent her days
the girl Renhua was still excited: “brother Li, I haven’t entered the grassland yet. When you get to the depth of the grassland, you will know how good we are, momogue, and that will be interesting!”
The car bumped into the depths of the prairie. The gentle grassland was covered with wet water. Sand dunes were exposed to the sun, like pale yellow disks. The center was sunken, full of rainwater, forming small pools.
Sheep, in twos and threes, drank happily around the small pond. Sometimes they raised their heads and looked at us. When they found that the cars were getting close to them, they ran around and ran for a few steps. Then they turned around and continued to look. When they confirmed that we had no malice, they stopped escaping, lowered their heads and began to nibble at the grass.
A group of big white geese, however, were arrogant. They swaggered around the grass, stretched out their long necks, sniffed the tires of cars, and gave out hoarse howls, as if to inform their partners of the enemy’s situation.
A big yellow dog with a long tongue, breathing heavily, followed the car for a long time, watching our every move like a scout.
Tiedan tries hard to search for the ruts on the grass and drives slowly. Sometimes, when the ruts suddenly stop, Tiedan is confused and anxiously looks around, not knowing where to go.
I jeered: “Tiedan, you always come to momogue, why can’t you find the way
the iron egg grinned bitterly: “the grassland is too big. As soon as I come in, I can’t find the north. I have to find someone else to ask!”
With that, Tiedan went to the house with full power.
It is not easy to find a family in the grassland. Tiedan ran for more than ten miles without seeing the shadow of a house.
The car bumped more violently and I held on to the handle.
As the speed was very slow, swarms of mosquitoes swarmed into the car and surrounded us, biting my head and face mercilessly. I tried to drive them away with one hand, but it didn’t help. I had to take off my coat and wrap my head, but suddenly I felt the pain coming from the back of my hand holding the handle. I lifted my clothes to fix my eyes When I saw it, I almost didn’t jump up: boy, my hands and arms were covered with mosquitoes, and a large black area was greedily sucking my blood.
I was scared to death, shaking my arm desperately.
On the gentle slope in the distance, a group of colorful cattle appeared, either yellow, or black, or yellow and white, or black and white, or red, or red and white Wow, like a piece of slowly moving rain flower stone, dotted with green prairie.
A dirty, but smart little shepherd boy was wrapped in a shabby and out of shape coat, which was probably his father’s.
He drove the cattle with his bare feet and a long whip in his hand.
A twelve or three-year-old girl in a bright red flower coat, riding a tall red rabbit horse, running around the cattle, the strong sun shining on her rosy cheeks and symmetrical and strong body, a little rough because of the long-term wind and rain and covered with sand and dust, her face is dignified facial features and confident look This is the beauty of simplicity, health, without any decoration, and the complete beauty of nature.
“Child, do you sell your cattle?”
I lifted up my coat, enjoyed the two shepherds and their cattle, and cried out excitedly.
The two shepherds stopped, looked at us, and then replied in unison: “no! Not for sale
“Sell them. It’s a lot of trouble to let them go all day! Ha ha, “I joked.
“If you don’t sell, you don’t sell!”
The two little shepherds would not pay any attention to me any more. The male shepherd boy spat out his red little tongue at me playfully: “Oh –” @ @
“brother, don’t make a fuss.” the female shepherd boy on horseback yelled: “ouch, the cow is in the ground, quick,”
and the girl, with her legs clamped, drove her horse to the cattle that were about to trample on the crops.
