Childhood + quiet Liaohe - Chapter 81:
The car bumped in the dark, unprecedentedly silent and continuous Changbai Mountains for more than ten hours. When the night gradually faded, I and datiaokuai finally arrived at the quiet and peaceful border town.
After a non strict or even perfunctory routine inspection, with a flick of the black bear’s paw, I was fascinated to control the steering wheel and drove the car slowly across the border bridge with a strong curiosity and the excitement of stepping out of the country for the first time.
While I was fiddling with the steering wheel, my heart was agitated and murmured: have you gone abroad?
Is this true?
The car soon passed the border bridge, and a simple Korean town appeared in front of my eyes. I slowed down the speed consciously and looked around in surprise and joy.
On both sides of the narrow, circuitous but extremely clean street, there are colorful posters and magnificent slogans everywhere. When the car passes a crossroad that is likely to be the center of the city center, a bronze statue of Jinri city stands majestically in the center of the square in the middle of the street with no luxuriant flowers and plants. He waves his huge hands confidently and his eyes are golden The sky is all over the misty distance.
And behind his huge body, there are low, grey faced bungalows with grey heads and grey faces, and occasionally some humble buildings. From the windows that are slightly opened, sometimes a head melon, which is also full of surprise and curiosity, is peeping out from the window, watching the car slowly away.
Although it was nearly noon, we could not see a shop open for business, nor could we find a hotel or hotel.
Oh – I suddenly came to my senses: Damn, you stupid fool. The streets are full of Korean characters like the letter of heaven. If you don’t know Korean, you know which one is a shop, which is a hotel or a hotel!
Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring
Fun, delicious and delicious, I was concentrating on guessing which building should be a shop, hotel or hotel. Suddenly, from a rough two-story building, a piercing bell rang. Immediately, from the dead and silent bungalows and buildings, the tide of people poured out of my mind. What’s more, I can’t understand that he or she all use it With military discipline and speed, the long columns were arranged in a loud and conscious manner. Then, they took irregular steps more consciously. They marched in disorder along the winding streets.
“Why do they laugh at themselves
Behind the big sauce block expression wooden ground reply: “eat, they line up to the canteen, collective lunch!”
I looked at the watch on my wrist: “Oh, uncle, do Korean comrades have lunch on time at eleven o’clock?”
the big sauce piece continued to reply indifferently: “the North Korean time is one hour different from China’s, now it’s 12 o’clock in North Korean time, and the North Koreans begin to eat lunch!”
“Fun, fun, fun!”
When I heard the explanation of dazaikuai and looked at the long line, I couldn’t help but think of the “canteen” built in the great leap forward era at the bottom of my dormitory. Uncle, do Korean comrades still live a utopian collective life, and get together every day to eat a big pot of rice
the big sauce piece disdainfully skimmed his thick lips: “well, it’s still eating, it’s been like this for decades! Comrades in North Korea have a strong belief. They not only work together, but also eat together. So far, there may not be a second country in the world that can do this. ”
I said thoughtfully: “this, this, this, uncle, this is the life of concentration camp! I don’t like it! ”
“You don’t like it. Whatever your business, the North Koreans feel good about themselves. You don’t like the lifestyle of others. The North Koreans don’t like our way of life. Look, boy.”
I follow the big black bear’s paw. On the mountain peak on the left side of the car, there’s a row of huge cement plates: “uncle, what’s the matter Is it cement board? ”
“Boy, that’s a placard. In the past, there were big and big Chinese characters on it. They scolded China as revisionism and deviated from Marxism! In recent years, the relations between the two countries have been more or less gentle, and the Korean people have removed all the Chinese characters that have been used to scold the Chinese people! In the past, loudspeakers were set up there, broadcasting in Chinese all the time, to publicize the main idea of the Chinese people, teach them to learn authentic Marxism, and tell them what is true Communism! Now, the relationship has improved and the loudspeakers are dumb, haha
The car bypassed the bronze statue of Kim Il Sung, the great leader of the Korean people, the savior like father, and the creator of the main idea of genius. In the most ideal area of the street garden, there is a magnificent building of government organs. The big sauce block ordered me to stop and stop. Then, it twisted the bear like fat To get into the government building alone.
I was waiting in the car alone. When I was very bored, I simply pulled a large piece of mobile phone and dialed it to my home in China. Holding the phone, I called kindly: “Hello, Hello, blue flower, blue flower,”
“well, who are you?”
From the microphone came a strange man’s voice: “who are you?”
“Who are you?”
I was so angry that I shivered violently: “who are you?”
“Oh, my husband,”
Blue Flower finally took the call: “husband, Hello, miss you so much!”
“Get out of here”
I angrily scolded: “fuck your mother, blue flower, I just left home, you, you, tell me, who answered the phone just now?”
Blue Flower replied without shame: “what are you bluffing? I have told you for a long time, didn’t you also make a clear statement: don’t care about my past! What? You can’t stand it. You’re jealous. Hum
Blue flower snapped off the phone, I had already been angry, holding the phone hysterically scolded.
I am indefatigably abusive, from the door of the building out of a group of stiff clothes, single color North Korean comrades, they are laughing around the big sauce block.
The big sauce block was very friendly to Comrade Korean. He waved his hand to me, indicating that I would drive the car to a three storey building similar to a guest house close to the government organ. Then, he turned around. Surrounded by Comrade Korean, he swaggered into the frightfully silent building, and soon his head suddenly slipped away Out of the building, the black bear’s paw waved at me. I nodded knowingly, followed the black bear’s paw, and got into the building in a daze.
At 3:30 p.m. China time, in a guest house set up by a government agency in a small town of North Korea, a big sauce block ordered me to carry the prepared strong liquor, various canned foods, fruits, cooked meat and other foods from the truck container to the dining table of the guest house one by one, and put them neatly and orderly.
Then, the big sauce pieces piled up fake smiling faces, and stood in the middle of the restaurant, in front of a group of Korean comrades with dishes and serious expressions, I always wanted to laugh at the Drake’s voice, holding the Korean language that I didn’t understand, and playing the formula like official tune solemnly.
I stood quietly at the table full of food, feeling extremely agitated, looking at the big sauce piece’s serious manner and greasy tone, I was both angry and funny. However, the respected Korean comrades, who had no mind to listen to the endless gibberish, nodded in an absent-minded way, and at the same time, they gave a pair of hot eyes The light moved to the food mountain table.
At last, he held out the black bear’s paw, grabbed the drooling Korean comrades, grasped it enthusiastically, and made a mock cold noise. Then, he took the Korean comrade’s hand and walked to the spacious table.
Dazaikuai opened a bottle of strong liquor with strong aroma, and filled it with hospitality to the Korean comrades one by one. He saw the big sauce block holding the white wine bottle and filling the wine cup by cup along the table. Due to the large number of small people, just poured it to the middle of the half arc of the round table, the more impatient Korean comrades in the opposite direction had already been unable to bear, quietly picked up the small wine cup and rode on the big sauce block If you don’t pay attention to it, you can easily pour a glass of white wine into your throat.
I grinned and opened a bottle of white wine to these impatient Korean comrades. They filled their glasses again. The Korean comrades who got the liquor again gave me a warm smile. At the same time, I raised my hand slightly and expressed my friendship to me in the way of Korean nationality.
in the chaotic process of pouring wine, I suddenly found that a Korean comrade of my age always stood upright at the door of the restaurant, looking at the wine cup full of fragrance, and could not restrain his tongue and swallowing his saliva. I held half a bottle of white wine in front of him, grabbed his arm friendly and used the simplest one In Korean, he indicated to sit down at the table and have dinner together. However, no matter how much I said with strokes, he would not move a step.
“Hello, Hello, boy.”
after wiping the sweat on my forehead, I found that I was dragging the young man, so I quietly walked up to me and pushed my elbow with an empty wine bottle: “boy, forget it, forget it, he is absolutely afraid to sit down and eat!”
I still reluctantly tugged the young man’s arm and turned around to ask big sauce block road. He replied in a low voice: “he’s a driver. The hierarchy of North Korea is quite strict. Unlike China, drivers can’t eat with leaders!”
Hearing the big sauce, I suddenly patted my forehead: “so it is, then, I can’t be difficult for you, dear comrade Korean!”
After a warm greeting with the Korean comrades, they all raised their glasses one after another. All the wine glasses without exception were facing up empty. Datiaokuai waved his hand with great pride. When the Korean comrades sat down one by one, datiao Kuai opened his travel bag with a cheerful face and pulled out strips of high-grade cigarettes to let me help him , and distribute them to the Korean comrades present here one by one.
“Comrades of China, comrades of China!”
I had just distributed cigarettes to the center of the dining table when a deep female voice came from behind me. I followed the reputation. Outside the dining room, a Korean female comrade in uniform looked at me with a smile, and her fingertips kept curving: “Comrade China, comrade China!”
“What’s the matter?”
After handing out cigarettes in a hurry, I slipped out of the restaurant and came to the Korean female comrades: “Dear Korean comrade, what can I do for you? Please tell me!”
“Chinese comrade, you,”
the Korean female comrade pointed to the empty wine bottle on the dining table: “do you have any more wine?”
I gave a friendly smile to the Korean female comrades: “please wait a moment.”
soon, I secretly carried a bottle of white wine out of the restaurant and sent it to the Korean female comrades very courteously: “to -”
“thank you, thank you, thank you,”
the Korean female comrade repeatedly thanks and happily takes over the bottle, which makes me surprised Surprised to ask: “Comrade Korea, you speak Chinese very well!”
while appreciating the wine bottle in her hand, the Korean female comrades said frankly: “Korean people on the border can speak more or less some Chinese, and the nature of my work determines that I must speak Chinese well!”
“Comrade Korea, what’s your name?”
Korean female comrade fondly stroked the bright bottle: “Chinese comrade, thank you so much, I really don’t know how to reward you, Chinese comrade,”
before finishing, Shunji took out several Korean coins: “Comrade China, this money is a little thank you!”
I pushed Shunji’s palm away in a hurry: “no, no, I can’t take the money. Is Sino Korean friendship! A bottle of wine is nothing
“But,” Shun Ji looked embarrassed: “Comrade China, if you don’t accept money, I’m even more embarrassed. Oh, I’m really sorry. I don’t know how to thank you!”
I was staring at Shunji’s chest. Suddenly, a dazzling little thing attracted my evil Mi’s eyes. I fixed my eyes on it. Wow, it was a beautiful golden sun imaging stamp. I held out my hand excitedly: “Shunji, if the fruit is trying to reward me, give this badge to me!”
I was about to take off the shining badge on Shunji’s chest. Shunji suddenly stiffened her face and quickly retreated, covering the badge with one hand: “no, no, don’t pick it. It’s not OK. The badge of a loving father can’t be given to anyone at will!”
looking at Shunji’s serious expression, I had to take back my hand: “Comrade Shunji, since this is the case, I will not be difficult for you!”
for a moment, Shunji asked seriously, “do you really want to have a badge of a great leader?”
I said, “of course, comrade Shunji, I really want to have a badge of a great leader. Comrade Shunji, I have a lot of feelings for North Korea. I can also sing the National Anthem of Korea.”
I hummed in a low voice. Suddenly, Shunji’s face suddenly showed a happy look and grabbed my arm excitedly“ Chinese comrade, you sing very well. Where did you learn that? ”
“On the radio,” I replied, “Comrade Shunji, I can not only sing the Korean national anthem, but also the song of General Kim Il Shing, flower girl, blood sea!”
hearing my thick singing, Shunji’s body trembled slightly, and her palm pulled my arm more forcefully: “Comrade China, you are so friendly to North Korea, Chinese comrade, don’t worry, I will try to make you have a badge of loving father, you deserve it, you should have it!”
