Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 18
“Oh, the three enemies!”
My grandmother carried me on her back and muttered: “the three enemies, this time I went out, I left for more than half a month. I watched the weather getting colder and colder day by day. However, he still didn’t come back and didn’t know where he was now. Alas, if you have a child, you have to worry about it!”
I leaned on my grandmother’s back and asked, “grandma, who are we going to visit today?”
“Today, it’s not a drop in!”
Granny said seriously: “grandma, go to calculate your fortune.”
“fortune telling again, grandma, I’m so tired of that blind man!”
“Oh, here we are.”
as soon as my grandmother turned around, she carried me back into the smelly room of the blind fortune teller: “how have you been, sir!”
the blind man was playing with a pair of bright iron balls with nothing to do. Hearing his grandmother’s words, he raised his head very politely. I saw the white eyes without eyes again: “Oh, oh, Hello, Mrs. Zhang!”
my grandmother put me on the earthen Kang and gasped and said, “well, I’m going to trouble you again. My third son has been out for more than half a month, but I don’t even have a message. I don’t know where I am now. I’m dead or alive!”
“Don’t worry, don’t get angry, Mrs. Zhang. Tell me your third son’s birthday, and I’ll calculate it for you.”
Grandma reported the third uncle’s birthday, the blind man put the iron ball in the broken felt hat beside him, and then, solemnly pulled up his fingers, and kept mumbling the alien words I could not understand: “Oh, oh,…”
“Sir, how about it?”
grandma asked anxiously, “I am the three enemies, can’t there be anything wrong?”
the blind man shook his head like this: “it’s nothing serious,”
grandma sighed: “that’s OK.” @ @
the blind man raised his head: “he’s in a little trouble,”
grandma is anxious again: “Sir, he is What’s the trouble? ”
“It’s not a big deal. It’s about business.”
“well, where is he now?”
“Well, this,” the blind man thought for a while and then said, “in the four frames!”
Grandma asked blankly, “what are four frames?”
the blind man grinned: “Mrs. Zhang, I don’t know what the four frames are, the house, but this is the prison house!”
when grandma heard this, she was stunned: “what’s wrong with the three enemies? Why are you in prison again?”
the blind man sincerely comforted him: “it’s not big. After a few days, you’ll come back!”
“Oh, my grandmother sighed helplessly, carried me listlessly, and said goodbye to the blind man with a sad face.
Hearing her grandmother’s story, the grandmother and her family fell into depression. For several days on end, a layer of invisible cloud shrouded the grandmother’s home. The three aunts held the sucking baby and washed their faces with tears all day long.
on a cold, windy, cloudy day, I was playing with my aunt in the yard. Suddenly, I saw the third uncle walking into the yard in rags, and I yelled excitedly: “uncle, uncle, grandma, third uncle is back!”
when I heard my cry, my grandmother and his family all rushed out of the door, and they welcomed the third uncle into the house with surprise and bitterness. Grandma wiped the tears of sadness and asked the third uncle: “three enemies, this time planted again!”
the third uncle shook his head in disapproval: “Mom, it’s OK. I poured some copper, and I’ve been detained for 15 days!”
“Oh, three enemies, you haven’t eaten yet, Fangzi, hurry to burn the fire!”
looking at the hot corn potstickers in front of him, the third uncle, who had just finished washing, caught up a piece of corn cake and muttered with deep feeling: “in this half month, I haven’t had a full meal, my eyes are almost green with hunger!”
The third uncle chewed off half a piece of corn cake, and then, while chewing, pinched my little face: “nephew, this detention center is really not a place for his mother to stay. Dozens of people are crowded in a big house, eating and drinking, all in it. It’s dirty and smelly. I drink pickled vegetable soup every day, and I only give a meal to one person in a small room. Alas, can I have enough of my mother’s food 。 One day, a prisoner died in the bugle, and the steward yelled: whoever carries the dead out will give him an extra nest when he eats! Huo, everyone raised their hands and scrambled to carry the dead. Hey hey, usually, who does this is hungry. In order to eat more, you can do anything! ”
I begged him, “after dinner, tell me about journey to the West.”
“Ho ho ho”
the third uncle said with a smile: “journey to the west, return the journey to the West. This adventure of the third uncle is more lively than the journey to the West. When the third uncle is full, I’ll tell you slowly!”
She pointed out the window and said to her grandfather, “look, who’s back?”
my grandfather took a look at the window and said to himself, “sophomore, how did you come back?”
grandma exclaimed, “what day is today? How can my son run back one after another?”
a tall, thin man with a sad face walked into the room. Behind him, a very small woman with a baby in her arms and a dark complexion was following him. As soon as he entered the door, the tall man respectfully addressed his grandfather and said, “dad, are you in good shape?”
“Humph, what’s the use of running back to work
suddenly, the thin and tall man’s legs softened, and he knelt down in front of the Kang: “Dad, I don’t want to do it any more. I can’t stand it. My stomach trouble has come again!”
“Who is he?”
I quietly asked the old woman, the old woman will be small mouth in my ear: “my second brother, is your second uncle!”
“What about the woman with the baby?”
“My second sister-in-law, you should call her second aunt!”
my grandfather taught the second uncle kneeling on the ground without politeness: “you, you, what else can you do? Can’t stand it, then, how can others bear it? Well, “
” old man, “
grandma interposed:” the second enemy has had stomach problems since childhood. They can’t eat rice, but they can only eat steamed bread. In that poor place, I heard that there is no steamed bread, and it’s all rice. The second enemy really can’t stand it. If you don’t do it, you can’t do it. If you keep going like this, you may die in that poor place! ”
my grandfather looked up and sighed: “no one has given me any worry. This three boys, who have done their good work, run around all day, and are thrown into the detention center every now and then for a few days. Ah, er boy, if you don’t do a good job, then, what do you rely on to live? You already have a family. If you don’t work, who will support your wife and children? ”
the second uncle firmly said: “I go to work in the production team, anyway, I will not go back to that ghost place!”
I continued to ask the old lady, “where does the second uncle work?”
My second brother worked in the iron and steel plant before. Later, I don’t know why. After demobilization, the factory moved away. I heard that it was moved to Shuicheng, and the workers moved there. My second brother, one of them, followed the factory to Shuicheng. Ah, water city, so far away. Listen to my second brother, I have to take the train for three days and three nights. Elder nephew, “
the old aunt pointed to the second aunt and continued to say,” look, your second aunt, is it fun or not? ”
“It’s not fun.”
I replied, “it’s so ugly. It’s too short. It’s so thin! It’s a far cry from my aunt
when I heard my comment, my aunt was very happy: “big nephew, is Auntie good-looking
I tried my best to please him and said, “look good, good-looking, my aunt is very good-looking!”
my aunt gave me a kiss: “nephew, do you know, your second aunt is not from our place!”
“Well, where is she from?”
“Water city, and, not Han nationality!”
“Of what race?”
“Miao people, when they first married their second sister-in-law, we all called her Miaozi. When she heard that, she became angry. As a result, my father didn’t let us call her Miaozi any more!”
“Get up quickly.”
grandma tugged at the second uncle with heartache: “second enemy, get up quickly. Although your father didn’t say anything, he agreed that you would not go back to work in that poor place any more! Get up quickly and have dinner with three enemies! What’s more, the second daughter-in-law, hurry up to the Kang and let go of the children. Oh, look at those who cover the children, they can’t get angry! ”
the second uncle with tears in his eyes suddenly saw me: “this is Lu Lu, big nephew, when did you come
grandma interrupted the second uncle: “his name is no longer Lu Lu, that name is not good, let me change it, later, his name is Xiaoli!”
“Ah – Xiaoli, OK, OK,”
the second uncle stretched out his slender big hand and gently pressed it on my little hand: “ah – I haven’t seen you for several years. My great nephew has grown so big, and he is really worried about growing seedlings!
Come on, “the second brother yelled at the second aunt sitting on the Kang:” come here, get to know each other. This is my eldest brother’s son. His name is lulu. No, no, his name has been changed. His name is Xiaoli, Xiaoli!
“The second uncle raised his chin and said to the second aunt who was about to undress and breastfeed the baby:” she is your second aunt, Miao nationality!
the petite Miao’s second aunt nodded to me and kindly. I was staring at her with a pair of small colored eyes fixed on her flat chest. The lecherous me wanted to enjoy the milk of this Miao second aunt and see what kind of respect Miao women’s milk is.
What makes me regret is that under the long-term gaze of my eyes, the second aunt of Miao nationality is somewhat embarrassed. She quietly lowers her head and refuses to untie her skirt.
“Oh, damn it.”
the second uncle chatted with the third uncle. While the second uncle was mouthing the corn cake, he kept on telling the third uncle about the place that he hated very much.
“Oh, that poor place! It’s really sunny without three days, the ground is not three miles flat, and no one has three Liang silver. If you look around, there are mountains everywhere. When you look up, you can see that there are mountains everywhere. When you look up, you can see that there are mountains everywhere. There are no heads or tails. The car goes around the mountain and goes around again for several hours. You can look down again. OK, it takes a few hours to get to the middle of the mountain. Then you have to go down the mountain, go around, go around, not very much Far away, a round is a whole day.
On the hillside there are small pieces of flat land the size of a palm. In our northeast, no one can look at it, and they are too lazy to sow seeds.
However, in the local area, this is the cultivated land, on which are sparsely planted bracts, which are staggering and uneven in height.
When harvesting, you have to climb up the hillside to pick off the ripe corn and put it in the basket behind you. In this way, you can carry the corn to the side of the road, and then load the carts and take them home.
The local people live in houses that are so miserable. Climbing up a bamboo ladder and shaking from side to side, it seems that the house is about to collapse. I’m really afraid of falling down.
Standing in the room, you can see the stars.
There was no glass in the windows, all of which were nailed with bamboo strips. It was like a prison. The room was wet and smelled of mildew.
Summer into the toilet, big white maggots crawling all over the ground, white, disgusting to death.
The people in that place, both men and women, are so black and thin. Look at the big girls in Northeast China. They are beautiful, white and red, and delicate.
There are a lot of Miao people in that place. They wear ancient clothes. They think they are very beautiful!
They male and female to folk song, pair up to go to bed together, finish to go home separately.
The next year, he came to the old place to meet. If the girl didn’t bring the baby, the man would not admit that the woman was his daughter-in-law. He went to the folk song with other girls “Second uncle,” I suddenly asked, “did you and your aunt have a song?
“Go, go, go, boy!”
“Ha ha ha ha –”
people in the room burst into laughter. My second aunt of Miao nationality blushed and bowed her head again.
at night, I was sleeping with my aunt. I was contentedly playing with my aunt’s urination. She moved her body and stretched her thin legs to facilitate my digging. Suddenly, she turned her face and whispered to me, “big nephew, do you dare to call your second aunt Miaozi?”
when I heard my aunt’s words of encouragement, I replied like a bet: “dare,” @ @
“then, you are shouting, hee hee,” Miaozi — Miaozi — “@ @
I let go of my aunt’s pee, put my head out of the corner, and yelled at the outside room where the second uncle and the second aunt were sleeping Drink a bowl of water
“This boy, hey, hey, hey”
the grandfather at the end of the earthen Kang taught him: “grandson, don’t make any nonsense. How can you call your second aunt like this? It’s rude
