Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 154:
The life in the town is boiling. Everyone is busy and the life is very full. It is not like me. I have nothing to do and nothing to do.
This is especially true of the old aunt, who is invited almost every day to attend all kinds of weddings, funerals and weddings.
A large part of the cost of renting land is invested in this meaningless “reciprocity”. However, my beloved eighth master passed away peacefully. Unexpectedly, my aunt came again with a large amount of “gift money”. Come on, try on this dress. “Before leaving, of course, the old lady would like to dress me up like this, Until she felt satisfied, in the eyes of the old aunt, I was her pride, and even more, she was proud to show off
Looking at my aunt’s excitement, pride and glory, I can’t help but think of my grandmother’s carrying me back and going to the East and West. When I met people, she said, “well, this is my grandson!”
“Well, all right.”
the old aunt looked at me carefully: “Zaza, my big nephew is so beautiful. The more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him, the more you look at him! Let’s go “
after kissing wantonly, my aunt straightened my skirt again. Then, she took up my arm and walked to the eight masters’ house with great pride and went to a funeral which was said to be unprecedented in scale.
The courtyard of Bayes’ house is not spacious. The loudspeakers hanging on the top of the big willow trees play the harsh music. The newly built Lingpeng is hung with huge couplets and huge wreaths.
The huge, colorful and well-made coffin in front of the Lingpeng is particularly eye-catching. At the moment, the eight masters, who have drunk their lives and gambled for a lifetime at will, are sleeping soundly among them.
On the east side of the coffin, according to their seniority, they wear different mourning clothes and kneel on their knees. Whenever neighbors come to mourn and kneel in front of the eight masters’ spiritual throne, these children and grandchildren, together with the mourners, pound the wooden forehead on tatami in front of them.
After knocking his head, the mourner finally got up like a heavy load. With the master of ceremonies’ pretentious yelling, the mourner waved his hands, and the waiter hurriedly served a plate. I had never seen it, let alone tasted it. Of course, it was called delicious food with little name and handed it to the mourner. The mourner took over the porcelain plate and rushed I murmured inexplicably about the eight master’s spiritual position, and then, respectfully placed the porcelain plate on the wooden table that had already been filled with large and small porcelain plates and dishes: “Uncle eight, this is the five nephew’s intention!”
looking at the chaotic scene, I murmured blankly: “eight Ye died well, no matter how good the food is, you can’t eat it!”
my aunt gave me a push: “big nephew, be serious. This is for uncle eight to enjoy in the underworld!
Big nephew, get ready. It’s your grandson’s turn. When it’s the grandson’s turn to sacrifice, you will be the first to go on the stage. Hey, nephew, do you know what to say?
“Yes, what should I say?”
When I heard the old lady’s words, I was really in a dilemma. I could talk about it for three days and nights. Now, at the funeral of eight masters, I didn’t know what to say!
“Force, come on, it’s your turn!”
I was thinking hard about the lines on the stage when my aunt suddenly pushed me out of the crowd: “big nephew, what are you doing? Go to sacrifice for the eighth master.”
under the push of my aunt, I staggered to the throne of eight masters. The descendants of eight masters saw this and threw a look of awe at me one after another!
Ah, people, it’s better to have money. Even the eyes that others look at you are quite different: “xiaolizi, the second uncle is for the eighth master. Thank you!”
“Brother Li, thank you for offering a big sacrifice to my grandfather!”
I got up and looked at the eager, envious and admirable eyes of the people around me. My nervous mood was a little relaxed. I coughed and cleared my throat, and then began to mumble: “eight masters, my dear eight masters, you are the famous old revolution in the town, for the establishment of new China , and has made great achievements! ”
“Wow – good!”
People Zaza praised: “well said, well said, look, people who grew up in the city, speak, can speak serious place! Good, good
@ P > I continued to ramble about and said: “although you are highly respected, you are approachable and never proud of your achievements. You take the initiative to approach the people and get in touch with them. You are open-minded and upright, and
“OK, OK, well said,”
seeing me endlessly, the emcee was a little impatient. Yes, I talked so much on my own. What should others do?
You see, the people waiting to offer sacrifices to the eighth master were all discharged from the road outside the courtyard: “on the sacrifice!”
The emcee gave me a long drink and interrupted my performance. The waiter came to me with a stainless steel tray in his hand. I grabbed the bottle on the plate: “eight masters, grandson will never forget the first time I drank with him. It was the eighth master who enlightened me and taught me how to drink!”
“Ha ha, ha ha”
there was a laugh behind him: “this little Lizi, you are going to go down the road! Ha ha, ha ha “
” eight ye, this bottle of Remy Martin is given to you. It’s a little bit of a great grandson’s wish! ”
“Ha ha, this boy knows that he loved drinking when he was alive, so he put a bottle of wine on the sacrifice.”
“the people in the city make a fool of themselves. There is no one who can serve wine at the sacrifice.”
“Zaza, but this is foreign wine!”
“Yes, Remy Martin, how much is a bottle?”
“I don’t know. I’ve never seen this before.”
when I came back to my aunt, she pinched my cheek with a smile, and her face was full of pride and unprecedented happiness: “big nephew, you are really there, and you are blind again! Hee hee, “
” aunt, “
I asked the old lady in a puzzled way:” why didn’t you offer sacrifice to the eighth master? ”
the old aunt pointed to her nose and said humbly, “Li, you don’t understand. Women’s home can’t be sacrificed!”
I curled my lips: “men are superior to women, feudal!”
but the old lady didn’t think so: “just this rule, this is left by the ancestors, so women can’t sacrifice, so ah, Li,”
the aunt took my arm lovingly and said seriously, “so, Li, when grandma is old, my aunt will expect you to give her a big sacrifice on behalf of her aunt If there are you, who will offer sacrifices to grandma for your aunt? ”
I shrugged my shoulders helplessly: “what can’t be sacrificed, Auntie? What’s the use of pulling these things
“But if you live, you don’t want anything else. If you’re tired all your life, you’ll have to make a lot of noise when you die. You can’t be like a mouse, and you’ll be pulled down if you throw it out!”
I still couldn’t convince the old lady. I wiped the sweat on my forehead, changed the topic, and joked, “Auntie, women can’t sacrifice, it’s OK, at least, save money!”
my aunt gave me a charming smile, and then her eyebrows frowned slightly: “save money, what money? Women can’t sacrifice, but they can’t save money. Lo,”
the old aunt pointed to a group of drummers on the wooden platform and said, “these drum music classes are all paid by your daughter, niece and granddaughter, It’s much more expensive than the sacrifice. ”
“Oh, Huo Huo”
I glanced at the wooden platform: “Auntie, then, you have become a shareholder too!”
the old aunt grinned: “that still need to ask, this matter, can also run aunt!”
“Ah – ha, the funeral, the funeral!”
Eight Ye’s funeral reached its climax. More than ten young men, armed with sticks, ropes and other tools, marched into the battle with their bare hands and yelled up his heavy coffin. Surrounded by the crowd, they slowly walked out of the courtyard and came to the bustling street, causing passers-by Many good people simply join in and follow the long line.
“Hello, blow, blow, and work hard!”
People kept egging on the drummers: “blow, you see, the group of people employed by old Juzi play so hard. Our family can’t let foreigners suppress them. Wow, blow, blow,” right, blow hard, and beat old Juzi’s class. ”
“If you beat them, I’ll give them a reward!”
Under people’s urging, under the temptation of “reward”, the drummers cheered up one after another. Across the eighth master’s coffin, they competed with the drummers employed by the old aunt. The drummers employed by the old aunt were not willing to be outdone and actively responded to the war. Therefore, an unprecedented scale drum competition was staged in the streets of the town 。
the old aunt caught up with me breathlessly: “Li, look, my aunt is very busy. Later, when your eighth master is buried, what paper are you going to do for him?”
“Paper work, what paper work?”
the old aunt pointed to the large truck full of wreaths behind her. There were paper cows, paper oxen, paper men with gorgeous colors and exquisite workmanship, and so on: “big nephew, this is given to eight ye by everyone. We can’t make any difference. Think about what kind of paper work should you buy and give it to eighth master!”
looking at the colorful paper cattle and paper horses on the truck, I thought for a moment: “yes,” I said to my aunt with a smile: “aunt, as far as I know, in addition to drinking, my favorite thing is playing mahjong. OK, well, paper cattle and paper horses have been sent to me, and I will give them to them Eight ye, a mahjong card
the old aunt couldn’t help laughing: “nephew, I’m sorry you can think of it.”
the old lady stroked her scattered hair: “OK, the head of the family, do as you want! “Let’s go”
the old lady pulled my skirt and nodded to a florist on the side of the road: “go, big nephew, let’s give you eight ye, make a paper mahjong!”
The owner of the florist was a middle-aged man with a big round head and a short and fat body. He heard that I was going to order a paper mahjong. The round head shook in a funny way: “I haven’t heard of it. I haven’t heard of it. How can I send mahjong to the old people! It’s new, nonsense
I urged angrily: “fuck, let you do it, you can hurry up, how much money should be paid, a penny, also a lot of you!”
“When do you want it?”
“Now, you see,”
I pointed out the window: “I’m sending a funeral. I’m waiting for it. The sooner the better, the later, it’s meaningless!”
the round head looks pale: “more than 100 cards, one by one, how much time is needed, I’m afraid, it’s too late!”
I just lit a cigarette. I heard the boss mutter and looked at the matchbox in my hand. My inspiration suddenly came out: “no time, lo, just use this, wrapped with colored paper, instead of mahjong card!”
the boss with round head grinned suddenly and grabbed the matchbox: “OK, OK, this is a good idea. Ha ha, hurry up.”
then, the boss told his apprentices: “quick, buy more matches!”
The round head master and his apprentices began to carry out their duties. Soon, the mahjong cards made of more than 100 match boxes were carefully and vividly put into the square box with exquisite outer skin. The boss of round head wiped the sweat all over his face and handed the paper mahjong card to me like an errand: “Sir, it’s done!”
I took out a note and slammed it on the workbench: “thank you. Here’s the money
When I rushed to the cemetery by the Bank of Liaohe River with paper mahjong, people just started to burn countless paper cattle, paper horses, paper people and other things dumped from the truck, and the flaming tongue licked the red coffin of Bayes. I suddenly thought of something: “Auntie, now, do you want to bury in the earth?”
“No,” the old lady replied earnestly, “but after the old man dies, in general, it is still buried!”
“Well, the government doesn’t care?”
the old lady replied, “of course, it does. However, as long as you are willing to pay a fine of 20000 yuan, you can bury it as you like!”
“Huo Huo, what’s the name of guanfa? Ah, the land in my hometown is extremely scarce. If we continue to carry out such a large-scale burial, the consequences are really worrying.”
the old aunt curled her lips: “nephew, you really see the Three Kingdoms shed tears, worry about the ancients, and think about what to do. In the future, if your aunt died in front of you, you must not burn your aunt, be sure to,”
the aunt pointed to the eighth master’s coffin: “you should also buy a good coffin for your aunt and bury it by the Liaohe River! Big nephew, can’t you, aunt, please
looking at my aunt’s kind and sincere face, I looked at the paper mahjong card in my hand: “OK, auntie, after burying my aunt, I will send my aunt a piece of paper mahjong. Hey, let’s play in the underworld!”
With a wave of my hand and a cry, I threw the paper mahjong card just pasted into the flames.
