            Country farm

 

在我们梨花屯乡场,这条乌蒙山乡里的小街上,冯幺爸,这个四十多岁的、高高大大的汉子,是一个出了名的醉鬼,一个破产了的、顶没价值的庄稼人。All these years, who knows how, three hundred and sixty-five days a year, he came here, and was not worth mentioning in the country。现在呢,却不知道被人把他从哪儿找来,咧着嘴笑着,站在两个女人的中间,等候大队支书问话,为两个女人的纠纷作见证,一时间变得象一个宝贝似的,这就引人好笑得不行!

"Father Feng Yao!Just now, eating breakfast - that is, when the primary school is put into early learning, you are not leading the cow from the entrance to the field?”

Secretary Cao Fugui asked。事情是在Country farm发生的,那么当然,找他这个支书也行,找Country farm的宋书记也行,裁决一回是应该的;但所有在场的人没有一个不明白,曹支书是偏袒罗二娘这一方的。别看这位年纪和冯幺爸不相上下的支书,也是一副庄稼人模样,穿着对襟衣裳,包着一圈白布帕,他呀,板眼深沉得很!Ehwatun is such a small street that can be seen at a glance, and people live together here like a family, who still does not know who's background?

Feng Yao's father blinked, reached out and scratched his unkempt hair, smiling as usual, and said:

"Living in the same street, what kind of noise!"

The people gave a chuckle。这时正逢早饭过后的一刻空闲,小小的街子上已聚着差不多半条街的人,好比一粒石子就能惊动一个水塘,搅乱那些仿佛Stand still的倒影一样,Country farm的一点点事情,都会引起大家的关心。This is partly because the streets are so small that things may be involved with them, and partly because there are really too few things for people to see on the country field!Father Feng Yao is obviously playing tricks?If he testifies, he may not be a good witness!

“哎——!You said, walked not!”

"You mean...Have breakfast?”

"During breakfast study!”

"Well, lead the cow?”

“是呀!”

He touched his head again, and couldn't help laughing himself, and grinned as if he were shy, which caused another laugh。

At this moment, the squat woman beside him, Luo Erniang, laughed sneer- She came to the thin woman opposite her, and said:

"Father Feng Yao, others insist that you were there and saw everything!- See my people are cheap, even other people's two cents of things are jealous, should hit...

As soon as the woman opened her mouth, the happy atmosphere brought by Feng Yao's father was weak, and everyone remembered things and became bored。Over the years, as soon as I heard her voice, people's hearts were as wet as the rain, laughing is not?thirties,It was as if her hair and face had never been washed,The two corduroy clothes were stacked on top of each other,There's a lot of oil on it,On another occasion it would have been a laugh;But you never know,Here it is,In the village of Ehwatun,She seemed like a lady,Because her man is an accountant at the country food depot,Is a meat seller...No one believed the thin woman,Or her baby,Dare to mess with the Luo family。Her husband is the eldest, teaching in a primary school in the village, is an honest private teacher for many years, compared with the Luo family?大家才从Country farm那些凄凉的日子里过来,都知道这小街上的宠辱对这两个女人是怎样的不同,——这虽说象恶梦一样怪诞,却又如石头一样真实,——知道明明是罗二娘在欺侮人,因此都为任老大女人不平和担心……

"Please say a kind word, Father Feng Yao!My baby, there's no...

Ren eldest woman timidly looked at Feng Yao's father and begged him。A miserable woman married to a schoolteacher, never able to do well in the country。一身衣裳,就和她家那间愁苦地立在场口的房子一样,总是补缀不尽;一张脸也憔悴得只见一个尖尖的下巴,和着一双黯淡无光的大眼睛。She has always been weak, duty, if it is not extremely forced, will not involve Feng Yao dad。

Luo Erniang immediately took the words over:

“没有!Don't hit enough people, do you?My Luo baby can't hold his head up in this street?……呸!Unless dogs stop eating bones, it's me!- You, Father, are far from it..."

She had been scolding for a long time in front of Ren Lao everybody。If this woman doesn't swear for a day, she seems to lose her expression。她要任老大女领娃娃去找Country farm那个医生,去开处方,去付药费,要是在梨花屯医不好,就上县城,上地区,上省!Then the heart of that woman's house was always ready to rule。This is not to say that it is not poisonous;If so, things will be big, poor women can not stand?

"You can't make a quarrel, Luo Erniang!Cao stopped her and said calmly。Of course he is more calculating than Luo Erniang。他说:

"Since the old people said that Feng Yao Dad was present, let Feng Yao Dad say;When things are clear, they can be solved easily。-- Feng Yao Dad you say!”

"This morning," Feng Yao's father panicked and said, "I was plowing...This year is the responsibility field!”

He grinned again, and tried to smile, but he didn't。

Apparently, he was there, he was afraid to say。本来,作为一个庄稼人,这些年来,撇开表面的恭维不说,在这Country farm就低人一等,他呢,偏偏又还比谁都更无出息。He has women, six children of all sizes, and he does not care about living。"What do you do!He used to shake his head and say: "Do, do not do, is not almost.?- Just a few, not enough for the corvids to peck;In addition to this grain, and in addition to that grain, in the end is not as fine as my father Feng Yao?"He did not want to do a living way, and no other craft, pig business, catch the day to resell it, he not only did not have the capital, but also said that it was" harmful."。In the autumn, after a little bit, he would sell so many litres and two litres, punch a catty of wine, divide half of the pig's chop, and drink it drunk。“怎么?He said to those who counseled him, "Only you can do it.?My father Feng Yao is not a human, should only drink water?"A drunk, sigh and cry, wake up, and still smile.。It was not yet spring, and he was pestering Cao to sell back the grain, and after that, he was salivating for help, borrowing half a liter of grain, or a bowl of broken rice。He runs errands for you, carries patients for you, such as when the second lady's family treats, he moves the table and stool, and then eats a meal there。He will stretch out his hand and demand prosecution. How dare he offend anyone?Luo Erniang this god, he can not afford to offend, but to hurt Ren eldest brother such a poor person, if a person has not lost his conscience, he may not have the heart。For a moment, you tell him which one to pick?

"If you are, say you are;"Cao warned him, "If not, do not say in.!”

"I...But plough back..."

"Well, Father Feng Yao," cried Luo Erniang, "you are really here?That's good!- You said you really saw it?It's just like the Ren family said?”

Feng Yao dad actually did not say he is in, this Luo Erniang can not bear, one step to Feng Yao dad forced over。She couldn't believe this Feng Yao dad wouldn't be on her side!In her eyes, Feng Yao's father was just like a dog in the country field, who could only wag his tail at her。Once, gave him a hanging pig intestines, he is not willing to go to the country in the middle of the night to help her drunk man?It was not she herself who sent for him in the cold?慢说只是要他打一回圆场,就是要他去咬人,也不过是几斤骨头的生意,——安排一个娃儿进工厂,不也才半条猪的买卖?I don't know what Dad Feng Yao is?

Feng Yao's father said quickly:"I mean..."

...Well, he did not dare to say it, and it was so boring!

People sympathize with Feng Yao's father。Do you think that if you offend Luo Erniang, you only offend her family?It does not seem to require much courage to do so;No, it's not that simple!You have sinned against one God, that is, against all gods;If you offend the Na family, you offend the entire upper echelon of Ewha Tun!瞧,我们这乡场,是这样的狭小,偏僻,边远,四小里是漠漠的水田,不远的地方就横着大山青黛的脊梁,但对于我们梨花屯的男男女女来说,这仿佛就是整个的人世。For example, if you have not bought half a bottle of kerosene and a bar of soap from the only shop in the street, where can you expect to get it!……但是,If you offend Luo Erniang,You will find that the store will be cold to you,So you have no light at night,I don't know what to wash your clothes with;Not to mention,In February,Secretary Cao will also write off the resold grain that should be sent to you,Make you difficult spring famine;You were in a panic,I wanted to look for the secretary surnamed Song on the farm the next day,But that same night,You overheard someone say it,What did Secretary Song just take away from Luo Erniang's house in a gunny bag!……不,这小小的乡场,好一似由这些各执一股的人儿合股经营的,好多叫你意想不到、叫你一筹莫展的事情,还在后头呢!So, if you're gonna stay here?This is the country that you can't leave if you want to, and most of your children have to grow up here later, so what about you?...Many brave men, not also for a time in front of a few ghosts to swallow?Even so, in this small rural field, we can hardly ask him father Feng Yao, that he has no backbone...

Luo Erniang snorted:"As you say..."

冯幺爸艰难地笑着,真慌张了,空长成一条堂堂的汉子,在一个女人的眼光的威逼下,竟是这样气馁,像小姑娘一样扭捏。He changed his feet and stood up, as if it hindered him, but still he could not speak。这正是春日载阳、有鸣仓庚的好天气,阳光把乡场照得明晃晃的,他好象热得厉害,耳鬓有一股细细的汗水,顺着他又方又宽的脸肋淌下来……

Luo Erniang was impatient:"For good or ill, say something!...Well, the way you look, it sounds like you really are?”

"Father Feng Yao!Cao had already rolled up a leaf cigarette, lit it, stepped forward and said, "To say that you were present, this is what the Ren baby said.。If you were there, say you were there;If it's not, say it's not!That is, to be accountable to the people;To Ren old people, you have to be responsible;For Luo Erniang, of course, you should also be responsible!-- You heard me?”

曹支书说话是很懂得一点儿分寸的,但正是因为有分寸,人们也就不会听不出来,这是暗示,是不露声色地向冯幺爸施加压力。Feng Yao dad changed his feet again, and more and more do not know how to stand。

At this rate, things are bound to break。Out of injustice, people could not bear it a little, one sentence two sentences interrupted:

"Father Feng Yao, you say!”

"It's a big deal?Tell me what matters?”

"Say it, say it is good to do a living way, spring work is busy..."

Of course, this is also the same as Cao, said very measured, but this popular will, Feng Yao dad is also pressure。

We can't get through if we push。冯幺爸干脆不开口,不知怎样一来,竟叹了一口气,往旁边走了几步,在一处房檐下蹲下来,抱着双手,闷着,眼光直愣愣的。He used to crouch like this in front of the door and bask in the sun,Then squint,Sweet and beautiful;How about today?,But it was anything but pleasant,It was like someone who had finally been found in debt,The amount that should have been paid out on the spot was huge,And all he had was empty hands,I'm gonna have to shrug my shoulders...Ah, a person must not fall into this field, nothing more than the scenery is not as good as people, on a little matter such as load, a truth can not afford to say!

The little street was silent for a moment;A round white cloud was passing over the village;The swallow flies low and chirps endlessly...The distant cry of cuckoos was distinctly audible。

After a pause, Luo Erniang began to curse at the top of her voice。This time she was angry。Even if Feng Yao's father does not say a word, it does not mean that she is wrong?This is equivalent to losing her face in front of a street of people, and this person is even worse than the dog father Feng Yao, this is how?

The next is a series of unbearable words of abuse, she seems to have put the eldest woman aside, Feng Yao father is the enemy。

"Don't scold!”

"...It's a call to testify..."

"Someone chimed in, and many people couldn't listen anymore。

"I will scold!I want to be clear, it doesn't matter which one!Which one has a big head to stand up and say, don't blame me Luo Erniang for not recognizing people!”

Feng Yao father, his head down, down, or silent。Ah, this Feng Yao dad really let people pinch dead ah, everyone for him sad。

Luo Erniang is straight scold。The wicked hen would put her hands on her hips, stamp her feet, slap her legs, and do it again and again"Bah", spit in front of Feng Yao Dad。

"According to me," Cao began again, "Father Feng Yao, you should speak truthfully.!The Gang of Four has been crushed for four years, and it is necessary to tell the truth..."

He advised ah advised, Feng Yao dad finally moved and stood up。

"Right," said the secretary, "it's none of your business..."

Feng Yao's father nodded silently and shuffled back, as if he were going to cry。As the saying goes, out of helpless conscience, he really hurt the poor and weak teacher family?

"Secretary Cao," his voice was also very strange, as if he were shaking, "you...I'd say?”

"Wait a long time for you!”

Feng Yao dad nodded again and stood still。

“我冯幺爸,大家知道的,”他心里不好过,向着大家,说得慢吞吞的,“在这街上算不得一个人……不消哪个说,象一条狗!...I'm too poor to -- I can't help it!...You can see...I have lost all my face..."

What's the matter with him?The people were very surprised, and they were quiet and looked at him。

"And last year," he went on, "...Millet and bag grain together, I more than a few hundred pounds, a family to eat Duanyang。There are dozens of pounds of glutinous valley, my woman said this year to the dolls wrapped a dumplings rake。那时呢,洋芋也出来了,……那几块菜籽,国家要奖售大米,自留地还有一些麦子要收……去年没有硬喊我们把烂田放了水来种小季,田里的水是满荡荡的,这责任落到人,打田栽秧算来也容易!...As long as the yangko can be planted, there are millet tarts in the future, and there are package grains......"

Luo Erniang interrupted him and said:"Father Feng Yao, if you pull Nanshan to cover Beihai, you should pull far away.!”

Unexpectedly, Feng Yao's father suddenly turned around, also stamped his foot, his eyes were red, and he opened his voice and roared:

"Secretary Cao!This resold grain, there -- also by thee;No - it's up to you, my father Feng Yao doesn't want to live on this year!”

People had never seen Father Feng Yao so fierce, and they were stunned for a moment!His broad face fell suddenly, livid, and gnashing his teeth in a rather frightening way。

"My father Feng Yao wants to eat two pieces of meat?He answered, patting his chest, "Yes.!-- So what?买!When you sell the rapeseed, buy a few pounds to give the dolls a meal, and ensure that you do not find the surname Luo is!反正现在赶场天乡下人照样有猪杀,这回就不光包给你食品站一家,敞开的,就多这么一角几分钱,要肥要瘦随你选!……跟你说清楚,比不得前几年罗,哪个再要这也不卖,那也不卖,这也藏在柜台下,那也藏在门后头,我看他那营业任务还完不成呢!Lao Tzu this year..."

"Father Feng Yao!Keep your mouth shut. You're the father of someone?”

"What about you?Don't you dare touch me?If you're gonna do it, try it today!...I've had enough of the past few years!Fortunately, the state has freed the hands and feet of our peasants in the past two years, and if anyone dares to scold me again, I will be rude today!”

Secretary Cao cut in:"Feng Yao's father --"

Feng Yao's father interrupted him immediately:"Don't do that with me!All your ghosts, pack them up and get out of here!-- Send me to the management training class?I went to repair water conservancy on New Year's Eve?No way!You don't make any sense with that kind of money!...When you become your official, you become an official for ten years, Feng Yao's father will not steal cattle for ten years。Do the way to live - the country is allowed this time, I see you have me how to do?”

“你、你……”

"You what!- You're not asking me to be a witness?I was just always there!If the children of the Philo family are raised by men?Picked up the old people baby things, not only said not also, others asked him a sentence, he also a fierce two evil, come not to open to scold!Yo Yang wants him?Ren's baby not only did not fight, not even a word of abuse!-- Do you hear me clearly this time?!”

这一切是这样突如其来,大家先是一怔,跟着,男男女女的笑声象旱天雷一样,一下子在街面上炸开,整整一条街都晃荡起来。This thunder was dissolved into a long noise and discussion, which, like the rain that followed it, continued in the countryside。For another example, it is like playing dragon lanterns in the first month of this year, and the small village is a festive firecracker!...Feng Yao Dad this guy squatting there for most of the day, originally there is such a calculation, weekdays really look at him wrong!This is it, this is how it should be, this is as pleasant as planting a dam full of yangko...

I saw him turn around again and solemnly said to the eldest woman:"I told teacher Ren that I didn't play!-- My father saw it with his own eyes!We peasants are not like the sons of turtles..."

Luo Erniang shouted hoarse:"Well, Feng Yao Dad, remember...

But even if her little voice was nothing in the noise of people's laughter, it was only the voice of Feng Yao's father that shouted so loudly:

“……只要国家的政策不象前些年那样,不三天两头变,不再跟我们这些做庄稼的过不过,我冯幺爸有的是力气,怕哪样?……”

In this way, he stepped on his big feet, saying that he had no time to accompany, and walked away without looking back。Looking at his wide background, we all remembered one by one, yes, since last year, Feng Yao's father is different, he does not drink much, but also diligent。His pair of large-size liberation shoes, not only last winter to buy a new?This is called "food in hand, calm heart, down to earth, happy."!穿上了解放鞋,这就解放了,不公正的日子有如烟尘,早在一天天散开,Country farm也有如阳光透射灰雾,正在一刻刻改变模样,庄稼人的脊梁,正在挺直起来……

The people of Ewha Tun were unhappy about this most ordinary dispute。No matter how noisy Luo Erniang, everyone laughed and was satisfied, and soon dispersed。It is indeed the spring workers busy ah, there are a lot of things to do, all the men and women, are hurrying……

          The old man who grows grain

 

           (一)

 

This is a village。This place is too far away, too silent, a narrow dam, surrounded by green mountains on all sides。Even the gravel road, which ran through the little country fields and was empty all day, fell far away on the other side of the green hills。As for the city, I do not know where it is, beneath what invisible sky。

At a glance,The green mountains were silent,Stretching out to the horizon,The colour gradually turns dark blue,Finally become a piece of darkness;Groves of cedar and cypress trees,Standing silently and elegantly,Connecting clumps of bushes,Into the good deep valley;For a long time,A dense black dot appeared in the distant blue sky,On the wind,Draw nearer and nearer,Suddenly it was broken and hurried,As if appalled by the silence,Sweep away,It's a little black dot again,Disappear into that solemn blue sky……

可是,Among this,There is a looming mountain road,Down from the hills,Light is a series of narrow, deep and shallow stones,Back between the prickly rocks;Then it becomes a small skelete of yellow sand,Zigzag over the mound,Through the low, dense green 㭎 forests;Finally came to the dam,Become a clean SLATE path,Meandering through the fields of babbling streams。Near that, in a mixed wood, ginkgo trees grew so tall, pear trees with crow nests, villages appeared。

The beginning is a thin bamboo forest, which covers the tiled eaves of a family。跟着,李村的枝桠里,露出一间牛圈;核桃树斜斜地荫翳的地方,现出立在石阶上的房柱,还有厢房的没有漆过的壁板。The houses were scattered and joined together by trees and vegetable fields。You can also see a boxy ancestral hall left from the early years on the edge of the pond, the blue brick walls, straight remind people of the long life here……

This place is called Luoxiping, there are about 30 families。

A little away from the wood and the house which were joined together, at the bend of the flagstone road stood a small, somewhat lonely tiled house。It carried an open shed for storing firewood, a small earth dam, a few beds of vegetables, some peach trees, and a loquat。This is Liu SAN old man's house。For many years, he lived here alone。

Liu Sanold man was over seventy years old. His face, neck and hands were dry and dark brown。For many years he always seemed the same, as if he had never been younger and could not get older。象这里的许多上了年纪的庄稼人一样,他不穿别的衣裳,还按照原来的样子,终年穿一件长布衫,在头上缠一块很长的白布帕,在腰间束一根揉皱的白布带,似乎这样很自在、很好,不希求别的了。He was never seen to be particularly happy or worried。He was silent and always so kind。White goatee slightly cocked, eyes from time to time squint, the corner of the eye where the folds deep, curved, faintly quiet smile。It was as if he had nothing else on his mind but to be satisfied with the days and to thank people and the land。人们都知道,他的老伴,还有一个儿子和一个姑娘,都在二十多年前不幸死去了,剩了一个么女儿,跟着就嫁到了五十多里以外的七星场;从那以后、他就一个人在这里过日子。At home, in the field, he is not very quick, so he is not impatient and does not rest。

The peasants who went to the town to make a living, or to drive along the flagstones, often passed by his door。这些年来,春日慵慵,人们看见他弯着腰,独自在那儿收拾自家的菜畦;夏日炎炎,则见他坐在阴凉的檐下,久久地打一双草鞋。My hands are not so nimble. How long does it take to finish gathering a patch of vegetables and rolling a straw rope。但是,麻雀在李树上蹦跳,抖落雪白的花瓣,长长的日影划过,田野阴下去了,接着又明亮起来,这落溪坪上的日子,不是好生悠长么?He does a lot of work and always gets a lot of things done。For a long time, although the peasants had to work together to divide the grain, the villagers had long ago stopped calling him to work, and still weighed his grain in the autumn。日子既一直不太平,田土里没有收成,乡亲们也没有多少能分给他的;好在他吃得很省、很少,掺和着菜叶,也就一天天过来了。At noon and in the evening, blue and white smoke wafted from the roof of his house. It was firewood that was burning, and he had cooked for himself。Like other families in Luoxiping, his stove is crescence-shaped and built in the center of the house so that it can be seen at a glance。Then he sat down on a low bench in front of the hearth, with the long back of his shirt hanging down to the floor, and ate alone。A dish of mashed chillies mixed with salt and water, or salted vegetables, is placed on the stove top。He held the bowl in his hands and rested it on his lap for a long time。

落溪坪的人们叫他三伯或三公,逢到在近旁做活路,歇气时分就常常到他的土坝里来,卷上一匹叶子烟,坐上一阵。At that time, the young children and their daughters-in-law took up the pole and filled the water tank for him。Passers-by knew that he was kind, and often asked him for a fire to smoke, or borrowed a ladle to drink cold water。在夜里,赶夜路的人算计路程,他这里也仿佛一处小小的站头,远远地望见他的小屋里还有光亮,心里都会一阵高兴:冷天可以唱到一碗热茶,月黑头的时候,可以得到一棵干透了的葵花秆,燃起一小片猩红的光亮。After passing his house, I went as far as Qingmuara, and I did not see anyone near the path。Whenever his yellow dog barked, which was most likely a stranger passing by, he would walk down the hall, wave his hand and raise the dog……

Did he spend his time silently by the side of this stone road, as if he were waiting for something。

There were times when he was ill, so ill that he could not get out of bed for days, and people came to see him, thinking he was going。It's not a life of 70 years?The peasants here do not hate life, but they are not afraid of death at all, and they always speak quietly, and when the time comes, they should go back。But for some reason, over and over again。He didn't leave this world after all。Like a tough grass stem, it bends down when the wind and rain hit, and then it stays straight。In a few days he held it up again, put on a padded jacket, and sat down on the threshold of his house, and gradually began to take up matters of home and field。仿佛他的生命和那些山林一样,是无声而长久的,又仿佛他不能死去,是因为他还有什么丢不开,他这样守候着的,还迟迟地没有到来……

 

          (二)

 

At the beginning of the sixth month of the lunar calendar, the blazing sun shines on the top of Loxiping, subjecting the fields to its light and heat for a long time。山上的树,斜坡上的包谷,平坝上的秧子,还有所有的草丛和灌木丛,都不得不紧迫地用自己的须根向土地吮吸。土地的水分仿佛全被吸到茎和叶片上来了,以至桐树的阔叶展开到最大,包谷的叶片伸延到最长,瓜藤牵连到好远好远,秧子呢,则严严实实地遮没了整整一坝水田。除了静静的石板路依旧蜿蜒而外,整个落溪坪的山野是一片湿润、饱满而凝重的碧绿,浓郁到仿佛透不过一口气来。

On the slope and on the dam there was a sleepy silence。The fields were quiet because of the tension。要是秧叶能象大雁一样迁徒,也就会退到浓荫里去;但山村也好,包谷和稻秧也好,它们都不能,只得站在原地,或者被蒸溶,或者争得自己的籽粒。一切都白热化了;在寂静之中,简直可以听到须根切切地吸吮,叶片嚓嚓地伸长,四下里是一片细碎、繁杂而艰难的轻响,沙沙地搔爬着人的心。风为之而息下来了,轻轻地也不敢吹拂,鸟儿们屏住声息,不知躲到了什么地方;云彩也只留下淡淡的一缕,悄然地挂在远天的一旁。

Shortly after noon, Liu Sanhan was lying alone on the slope in a forest covered with grain。The thick leaves completely concealed him。他的长衫的前襟撩起来,掖在腰间的布带上,佝偻的脊背深深地躬着,握了一只水瓢,一步步往包谷林的深处拥动。The wild, oily-green to blackened leaves crisscrossed around him like swords, and enveloped him in a still, unsettling heat。With every step, the skirt rustled the leaves, and at the same time a more violent sweltering heat fell on the face。The blades that stick out of the cheek,It can't be turned away,The tip pierced the back of his twiggy hand,Leaf teeth ran across his thin black face,The hairs clung to his thin neck,The sweat then soaked the debris,It's not deep enough into the tiny cut,Makes one's face and hands burn。

The earth is thirsty。在叶片底下,在这隐藏起来的水底一般葱绿的一隅,褐黄色的粘土把水分失掉之后,变成很浅的黄色,石块一样的灼热和坚硬,连人的脚步也不能把它踩碎。The algae-red roots of the Baogu emerged one by one, clinging to the earth like claws, and were firmly buried with the clods。要是泥土含着湿气,经过一个夜晚之后,在清晨还会有一点润湿的露水,现在呢,连露水也凝结不起了,土地整天都是干渴的。A large black ant hurried into the crack in the mud。A pale green frog flees out of sight。后来,刘三老汉终于谨慎地把木瓢贴近一株包谷的罩根,把水灌进筋络一般的细根的空隙里,让水从那儿浸到泥土里去。

水刚一沾着泥土,就发出吱吱的声响,又细碎又清晰,一点也不流淌,马上就被吸干了,在细根的周围留下一小圈浅浅的影子。Watch the shadow fade quickly, and soon there is only a little almost unrecognizable trace left。本来,刘三老汉是把一瓤水匀称地分成两半,分给两株包谷;但这是从桶里舀出来的最后一瓢了,没有盛满,是浅浅的,他就全部给了这一株。

After that, he felt his way out of the Baogu forest and sat down slowly on the grass bank next to it。The sun was so hot that the plantain and lindergrass burned, and the hot moisture rushed up his legs。一只青蛙跳出来,跌落进他的衣襟,背上有一根细细的金线,绿得仿佛透明,喉头急促地起伏,也好象渴得厉害,跟着又跳开。The empty cask and the pole were beside him。那扁担斜倚在草埂上,是红木的,不知用了多少年了,被汗水浸渍,让衣肩搓磨,早已是玉一样圆润,琥珀一样发着深沉的、暗红色的光亮。In those years, he used this pole, a burden of more than 100 kilograms, to travel more than 100 miles, and he went back early。Now that he's old, he can't。In another time, bear this carry water, shower this piece of package grain, even if not a thing。

He sat with his shirt open from the collar。The clothes-buttons across the shoulders and under the sides were unbuttoned, and the neck, shoulder blades, and a small piece of breast were exposed。The dress was made of a very thick coarse cloth。The cloth was old and faded to a faint, white cyan, and on both shoulders was patched a long, fresh blue cloth。The cloth is too thick,Sweat does not penetrate easily,But it's finally seeping out in the back and the underside,Soak along the yarn to both sides,Like a bruise of blood,The edges have been dried by the sun,Many silvery gray, as if with a salty halo,As for the exposed neck, shoulders, and chest,And his face, which was always lit up by the sun,It was as if he had been exposed to smoke and fire,A layer of oil seeped out,Like the pole beside him,It has a faint, dark red luster。His arms hung feebly down, allowing a pair of hands to rest on his knees。那手从长长的衣袖里伸出来,象露到地面上来的树根,一只抚着膝盖,另一只则用手背触着膝盖,手掌反过来朝怀里摊开,手指微微蜷曲,仿佛受了伤而再不能动弹。

But he looked as kind as ever。The sun was blinding, his eyes narrowed more, and the smile that lurked in the corners of his eyes was calmer and deeper。He curled up on his back,Neck extended slightly forward,Open one's lips slightly,Stand still,His brown eyes are cloudy,But I do not know whether it is filled with the slurry or the sun,Almost squinted in a line between the eyes,And a faint flickering light,As if looking with satisfaction,In fact, there is no hope,Think with one's heart,I didn't really think about it。

This piece of Bao Gu forest is far away from the people's households in Luoxiping, about three miles from the home of Liu SAN old man。Apart from the farmers of Loxiping, it is hard to say who else in this world knows that there is such a slope here。This is a semi-deserted, secluded valley, and it is not easy for people to get here, even Luoxiping。On this slope, the flagstone road was not in sight, nor was there a single house or figure in sight。无边的蓝天之下,无限的阳光之中,只有眼前的包谷林,再就是寂寞地闪烁着光亮的茅草和刺丛,全都在炎暑中深深地凝滞了,久久地没有一点响动……

...In spring, the world is different, and the villagers happily gather in the open space in front of the ancestral hall to settle this year's crops。Last year, the farmers in Loxiping were allowed to distribute their crops to each family, and the harvest in the fields and in the soil increased by several percent。But everyone's heart is unstable, afraid that things will not last long, or nervous。Later, did not see the above people to pursue, but also heard praise everywhere, so relieved, this year want to settle more fine。Captain Liu Chengxi smiled and came to Liu old man, ask three uncle this year to also assign a piece of land。This is not demanding him, not advising him, but caring for him。Now he Liu three old man do or do not do, it does not matter more。At that time, Liu SAN old man asked this semi-barren hillside to plant grain。乡亲们先一诧异,跟着就明白了三伯忠厚的用心,是不耽误大家的熟田熟土,于是便都不计较,说这一处山沟就划归三伯好了,随便种多种少,算是打发日子,至于收多收少则一点不要挂虑。

After that, the villagers were busy with their own way of life, and gradually forgot about this matter。The time is long, and occasionally someone met Liu SAN old man carrying a hoe to go out, or carrying a bucket to go home, and they did not care very much。You know, this place, all year round, it's not free?So, meet in the field on the ridge smile, say hello, also hurried past。Now, a slope of package grain has become a forest, one by one arm, linked into a dark green square。The pink and yellow ceiling has fallen, and where those long leaves stick out, they are hanging bags。So, how many bags of grain are planted here, the villagers in Luoxiping do not know。

The sun had only just set in the west, and there was still a long time to go before setting, and he could still scoop up several loads of water from the bottom of the slope across the water hill。于是,过了不大一会,刘三老汉就用手抚着膝盖,慢慢地站起身来,担好那一挑桶,顺着一条隐藏在草丛中的小路,蹒跚地往下走。天是这样高远、博大,山野是这样繁茂、连绵,他呢,这样佝偻,这样迟缓,在这一片斜坡上,几乎现不出一点行踪,小到让人看不见。But, gradually, one cluster after another cluster of thorns, or left behind him……

 

        (三)

 

夏天的日子漫长得过不完似的,匆匆的夜晚过去,跟着又是一个长长的、火辣辣的白昼,骄阳总停在落溪坪的顶上,久久地Stand still。可见,不知道从多久起,仿佛一场紧张的拼搏终于渐渐地透出了分晓,田野从它宽阔的胸膛里透过来一缕悠悠的气息,斜坡上和坝子上有如水一般的清明在散开,四下里的树木和庄稼也开始在微风里摇曳,枝叶变得从容而宽余。The dew returned, wetting the ridge in the morning and evening, and quietly hanging the tips of the grass。Dew haze also came to the dam, floating quietly, no longer go back to the valley。阳光虽然依旧明亮却不再痛炙人的脊梁,变得宽怀、清澄,仿佛它终于力乏了,不能蒸融田野,也就和田野和解了似的...Autumn is coming!

In July and a half, the people of Luoxiping began to pull the baogu。秋成熟了落溪坪的田野,也成熟了庄稼人心底的希望;比方一条水牛或半间瓦房,娶亲的彩礼或陪嫁的衣裳,而今都可望如愿以偿。At first glance, a piece of Bao Gu forest is still quiet。But a little attention, the leaves are rustling everywhere, and there is a crisp breaking sound。这儿那儿,包谷的枝叶在晃动,从中现出来细蔑的背篓,还有男人缠在头上的白布帕,或者女人系在腰间的蓝围裙。Someone calls in a long voice, and someone doesn't know where to answer。When at last the peasants came out of the packwood, the women were bent over, carrying their baskets like trackers。Men, they use their hands to pull the basket of rope tight, in order to carry the bag of grain through the narrow ridge……

Liu three old man's bag valley, is captain Liu Chengxi took people to help pull。At first, only three men went, thinking they could get it back in one go。How do you know that even thirty men may not be able to do all the counting on the slope。Next to that package of grain forest, Liu Chengxi they were so shocked that they could not say anything for a while。After a short pause, he pulled the lever and returned to the dam to invite more people。The news spread in Loxiping at once。这天下午,刘三老汉家的土坝那儿简直象赶场,乡亲们都来帮忙、探望,临近黄昏的时候,包谷全扳回家来了,足足扳了满满的五十七挑。

At that time, the women had to go back to cook dinner, and the men refused to leave. They all stayed in front of Liu SAN old Man's door, talking for a long time while rolling leaf cigarettes。They weighed it up and nodded their heads again and again, saying that even after drying and winnowing, it would not weigh more than three thousand pounds。从落溪坪这两年的收成来看,三、四千斤包谷并不算很多,土地落到一家一户经管,以包谷而论,五口之家即大抵有这样的收成。However, such a good crop was made by Liu Sanbo, which could not but surprise people and deeply arouse the minds of farmers。It was not until dinner that the woman and the doll shouted from a distance that the people gradually dispersed。但仿佛还有许多的余兴未尽似的、夜晚又有好些人来到刘三老汉这里,借着从门里照出来的一点油灯的光亮,把土地和庄稼说下去,许久了,那叶子烟深红的火星,都还在淡蓝的夜色里一闪一亮的……

But after that, after a few days, things gradually calmed down。Originally, the crops into the home, happy, even if the end of a thing。And then we're gonna start the sickle tart,This is so busy to see the in-laws are not answering!People carry the tart heads,Or 200 pounds of wet grain on your shoulder,Hurried past the door of Liu SAN old man,Or see him still bent over,Spread out bamboo MATS to dry the grain,Or there's an oil lamp burning at night,Touch and cook at home,I don't really care,Say hello sometimes,Sometimes you're too busy to say hello,Just walk right up to it。

Soon, however, one day in the beginning of August, after nightfall, someone came in a panic and said that Liu Sanhan was ill, very ill。

At this time, the fields of Luoxiping in autumn seemed to rest quietly after the busy day。The deep blue night does not know whether it rises from the land or falls from the deep starry sky, blending the stars, mountains and fields together。上弦月刚刚出山,晶莹的一弯,连着映出来的另一半透明的月影,嵌在对面那一匹黑黝黝的山头上,山峦、树丛和人家的轮廓,全都在夜的蓝色里清楚地现出来,全都庄重而沉思。Luoxiping appears so mysterious, solemn and ethereal, as if it no longer belongs to the world, and has emerged into the sky。The villagers hurried across the stone road and hurried to Liu SAN's house, the footsteps so empty and clear……

After a while, the room where Liu Sanhan rested was full of people。Looking into the room from the threshold, I saw the light of the oil lamp quivering quietly, revealing a number of black, motionless figures。后来的人们一时进不去了,只好留在外面,留在那间黑暗的、砌着月牙形的灶台的屋子里,留在檐下和柴草棚子附近低声地谈论。Yesterday, Liu Sanbo was not still packing up those rice husks?本来,人老了,病痛或者生死都在旦夕之间,但是此时,乡亲们却一个个都很诧异,仿佛刘三老汉是不该病也不会病的。The old days were so hard that he did not die again and again?So, it is so easy to today, and he has received so much grain, why do you want to leave everyone?No, it won't。

The lamp in the room was placed on a cabinet near the head of the bed。一只娃娃们剩下来的小小的墨水瓶,装了铁片和棉絮做成的灯芯,黄色的火焰无声而拼力地摇曳,在浸到屋里来的蓝色里透出来一团朦胧而五彩的光环,舒静地往四周散着淡泊的、却是清明的光线。But all the year round the house was stained with wood smoke, and there was so much night that the scattered light was merged with it, and only a faint shadow was reflected。刘三老汉的灰黑而补缀的帐子给撩起来,掖在枯黄的竹竿做成的床架上,隐隐地现出来蜡染的、蓝底上带着白色菱花的土布被单。There he lay, with his head on the narrow, rectangular pillow, and his eyes closed。

He was still breathing quietly, but he seemed to be unconscious。Liu Chengxi leaned down to call him, but there was no response。His eyelids dropped,To close serenely;Those wrinkles on the forehead and corners of the eyes no longer move,coagulate,Condensing a smile that never changes;Slightly open lips,And seemed to stop happily in the midst of whispering;It doesn't look sick at all,It's just a rest,As if he had done what he had to do,You can rest in peace,So he slept in the wide space of the blue night。The flickering light of the oil lamp changed its brightness and shadow on his face, like a peaceful and amiable sleep, and made the smile on his face more peaceful and vivid……

At that moment, Liu Chenggui, a carpenter from Loxiping, a man in his 40s with a long face, arrived in a hurry。他仿佛对刘三老汉病倒尤其不相信,用手分开乡亲们,一直来到队长刘诚喜的身边,来到床跟前,俯下身去探望。When he realized that this was indeed the case, he stamped his foot and turned around and said to them:

"Hey, I can't see that?The third uncle asked me to do his furniture the day before yesterday!"

“嗯?The villagers did not understand, and someone asked, "Do...furniture?”

“是呀,”木匠刘诚贵说,“三伯他卖包谷的钱,做两张柜子,一张碗架,一张方桌,四条板凳,是给翠娥的!”

乡亲们都怔住了,翠娥,就是刘三老汉的嫁到七星场多年的女儿,是六〇年就嫁过去的,难道说,二十多年了,刘三老汉心里还一直挂记着这回事情?When Cui E got married, there was nothing dowry. Liu Sanhan watched her go with tears in his eyes.But what were those years like?那时地方上不清静,连衣食也那样艰难,刘三老汉才死了妻子和儿女,连自己也病着,是靠了翠娥的照料才活下来,哪里顾得了这些事情呢?Calculation, Cui E is now in her early forties, extremely unexpected, Liu SAN old man's heart has been lost!

这一来,队长刘诚喜又才想起来,前不几天,三伯颤抖的手交给他三十二块钱,托他还到Country farm的信用社,那不知道是三伯哪一年欠国家的贷款。A later life, who often carried water for Liu SAN old man, followed and realized, saying that SAN Gong had given him a bird cage yesterday。三伯年轻的时候很能捉画眉,用马尾结成小小的圆圈,安放在刺丛中,这是大家都知道的;后来老了,就长久地歇下来。But he still kept a cage, perhaps implicated in a ray of time that has passed, has refused to give the dolls of Loxiping……

For a time, the villagers seemed to understand, and felt that Liu SAN was really going to go this time。Some of the women began to SOB。Liu Chengxi they bent down again and cried out in a choked voice:

"Third uncle, third uncle!

"Three fathers, three fathers!"

Later, people saw Liu SAN old man's closed eyes slightly moved, and finally slowly opened。但他依旧那样安详,仿佛他已经远远他去了,听见乡亲们呼唤,才又回过头来同大家再见上一面,说他总算活到了这一天,做完了自己的事情,而今该回去了,要大家从此好生过日子,尽管放心……

刘诚喜一见三伯睁了眼睛,就连忙要女人们递过来一碗水,请了手脚轻巧的人端到床前去,自己则挪出身子来同乡亲们商量,打发人去七星场叫翠娥,去Country farm请医生,立即分头进行。

不一会,在落溪坪的因了成熟而变得宽厚和深远的夜色里,在那条轻卷着雾岚的、成年累月都静静地蜿蜒的石板路上,即响起了急促的脚步声。A few villagers split the distance, toward the northwest of the green wood araya, toward the southeast of the green 㭎 forest。Hurry up, hurry up, Uncle three hard life, but also let him live a good life maybe……

           一

 

The coach was covered in bruises,I've been driving on rough mountain roads,The carriage was damaged more than once,What iron bars are always swaying,There is also a lack of glass in the Windows;however,Thank God,It's finally here,People in Lihuatun were on fire at this time,Squeeze through the door,Go through the window,Climb in through the pilot's door……

男人们在敞开喉咙争执,女人们呢,则尖利而急迫地呼叫;到处都有什么在碰响,脚踢着铁皮了,扁担也撞着车厢;沉重的麻袋堵在车门那儿,装着辣椒的背篓,捆扎起来的烟叶,还有人们拱着的脊梁,都一起横在车窗上;倏然地,一只鸡挣脱出来了、在人们的头上惊槔地飞翔,但爪子却还是缚若的,跟着又跌落下来,翻着黄色的眼睛,绝望地扑打着翅膀!

It was nine o 'clock in the morning, and the spring sun was shining on the fields of Ehwatun. The distant Wangxiang Rock stood green, and the walnut trees at the end of the field were shining brightly。All the people of Ewha Tun have to rely on this one long-distance bus。

"Don't turn the window!”驾驶员大声地喊道,他也是梨花屯的人,上了年纪的人们叫他吴老八,连忙又回过头来,“麻袋!麻袋要放到车顶上!还有背篼……”

But no longer, though the voice was hoarse and anxious as if it were going to cry, people seemed to hear it no longer。The faces tightened and became so frightening that one could not speak of astonishment。In the spring of 1985, the number of people in Ewha Tun was as prosperous as the day, and more and more people were riding。The seats were quickly filled, and many heads were crowded outside the Windows。

吴老八预计过,,如果大家都把背篓放到车顶上,提包也在木条的货架上放好,把走道和车门那儿的空隙都留出来,让一些人贴紧地站着,这一辆车还是能把乡亲们都载上的。Then, it is estimated that before noon, the car will be able to pull everyone to the county。The people in the team know that the town is afraid of the town, so he drove the car to the village。He's the new captain. He's in his thirties. He's young。The car drove to the flat bridge, which was not far from the end of the yard, and he mobilized the people who had come from the county to get out of the car, and then he drove the empty car into Ewha Tun。At that time, he told the conductor to buy tickets at the window and not to open the door until the tickets were sold。

Things started out very well。People began to be a little stunned and then came。The sun lit up half of the car, and the woman conductor with shoulder hair opened a window。

However, in a few moments, Wu Lao Ba heard someone knocking on the other side of the window and calling him by his baby name just like his father。

"Hey, hey, old eight!

He turned around and standing under the window was Clerk Liu, who had a dark face。The district Party secretary, Liu, who retired last year, still wore his black cloth jacket and was still very proud, and he was awe-struck on the glass of the car window。He knocked for a long time and was getting impatient。

"Tear down the ticket, Eight!

As Secretary Liu has commanded, voice is non-negotiable, he has never been non-negotiable, and now it is even less negotiable。No, it was his Lihua town, where the tea went cold when people left, and he could not tolerate it at present。

When Secretary Liu was a secretary in the village, he was still a child。To the motor transport school to study, the organization of opinions that column or Secretary Liu's thick handwriting;"Agree", two general pardon of the big word, let people still tremble after。After a pause, the old eight's lips gasped, and although they laughed a little too much, they still greeted Secretary Liu with a smile。The bus has to drive to the village for many years, which needs to be taken care of, and now many comrades in the district office are promoted by Secretary Liu。All this aside, respect should also be paid to the elderly Secretary Liu。Wu Lao eight let the conductor take out a ticket, carefully open the window a seam, the ticket to Liu secretary sent in the past。

The conductor's name was Li Meifang, and her home was also in the street. Either she had the shrewness of a girl, or she was a girl who knew her food well。As the car pulled into the gate, she saw her uncle。My uncle Jin Mazi has been a department store stall for many years, and now she is still wearing clothes on the front, with a little shy belly, but she is a famous person in the street。When the car turned around at the gateMy uncle, who has always been calm, raised his hand to her, and since then, he has been waiting far away。Now, as soon as Master Wu opened the window, the girl followed smartly and handed the ticket to her uncle in a twinkling。

“小芳!"Wu old Eight shouted。

The girl's name is Xiao Fang, which is good, but so what?It was Secretary Liu who knocked on the window just now, but she was the nephew of Mazi Jin。

The faces on all sides of the carriage sank, the lips pursed, and a Shouting broke out。脾气很大的刘书记是多年如此,人们当然也不觉得很欢喜,但想到他当年有攻城野战之功,似乎也没有办法,叹一口气也就算了,江山是人家打下来的,谁叫自己没赶上呢?But Jin Mazi, we were smoking together just now, and now he is not like that?"This is not going to work!

"Oh, you're just trying to be ridiculous?

"This is called serving the people?

"No, no.!

It seems to be true that the entire population of Ehwadon is here。瞧那冯家三兄弟,排开七只沉甸甸的麻袋,在小街上算得人强马壮,神情本来就倔犟,这一趟车如果不是为他们一家开来的,还能是为谁开来的呢?现在提出来要尊重知识和知识分子了,这就好比说,指的是农科站的、脸长长的老郭,还有他身旁的、脖颈细细的学校教师老岑,不能说连乘乘车也不行。Then, the professional and agricultural households, that is, the men with beards and the children with a grin, even the newspapers talk every day of preferential treatment for them。As for the Ma Ping to your wife, more feel a lifetime wronged very。更不要说那边有面皮白净的唐区长,脸色阴沉的供销社杜主任,还有承包了铁工厂的孟铁匠,还有银行的会计小陈...Can not say which one is a fuel-saving lamp, no one will think that they do not matter, so all can not say the anger。

"I don't tell them that!

一个年轻人用第一人称斩钉截铁地这样说,穿着棕黄的夹克和鲜红的运动衣,跟着就摔开了手中的半截烟卷,只一飞身,一手就抓住了车窗,一脚就踏上了车轮。There was nothing on his face that he had not seen through, that he could not fight。Sure enough, in an instant, he sat up in the carriage, arms folded, feet raised on the back of the chair, looking up at the roof。He was the youngest of the Chang tailor's family in the street, and in those years he was seen carrying a quotation bag to school in Ewhatun, but the stars had changed..Then I lost sight of him。Sometimes it's as if I've been a worker, sometimes it's as if I haven't。You know, some days you're down, some days you're rich。What's he been doing in town that people can't figure out。刚这么坐了一会,他又蹦起来了,一下子拉开了车门,在那儿顶天立地地站着,让光荣归于佩戴着的基督,把恩惠赐给可怜极了的人们!

In fact, why bother with the old man?Just as he opened the door, someone came in through the other window。说出来又用不着纳闷,是原来的大队支书曾福贵,还有原来的公社秘书赵世辉,虽然都曾经不寻常过,却似乎又是寻常不过的人。The open door was guarded by the three Feng brothers。Feng Second first two hands from the inside out a point, people poured like a tide, followed by a horizontal body to hold the door。Then, the guard or bandit relatives, a husband when the door will not open。As early as the eldest brother and the second brother carried a stretcher, they could not help but lift the sack into the carriage。The two sisters-in-law, who had come to see them off, also lifted up their aprons as if they were wearing their battle robes and gathered up the sacks together。In this way, a total of seven heavy, half in the front of the weight of the bitter, half in the corridor in the dark line。After this, the people who had just retreated like the tide, only with greater enthusiasm, like the tide back to the oil……

"Don't go through the window!Wu Laoba continued to shout loudly, "Do not carry the sack into the carriage..."

But it is difficult to have results, it is difficult to have results sweat from Wu Lao eight forehead oozing。He stopped calling, his cheek twitching painfully。Then suddenly remembered, Secretary Liu, Tang district mayor, Director Du, Secretary Lu, are still standing under the car。If these people are to be crowded, it will be too crowded。If none of these people can come, then it is obvious that he has spoiled the affair, and how can he explain the business today?So he did not dare to miss, quickly turned around and opened a door next to the steering wheel。

So Secretary Liu came up and held the clothes that had slipped down with his hands, almost filled with grief and anger。Tang District mayor without a word, patting his sleeve, is also obviously angry。Director Du blew his nose, unable to say the painSecretary Lu sat down on the sack and silently shook his head。This immediately attracted a burst of good abuse from the villagers, everyone sarcastically, choreographed, named him Wu Chuanzheng, or just called him Wu Lao Eight。Jiong old eight sad tea face flat down on his seat, pulled a towel to wipe sweat, can not say the mouth is difficult to open...

People scold Wu Lao eight, and come back to each other。The compartment is so big, everyone has long outstretched arms, and what can be done?

"Your bag, put it over there!

"Put it over?----You have a try!

"Ouch, your chicken...".

"What's wrong with the chicken?It's not in your pocket!

"Hey, hey, you don't press me?

“压你?I'm impatient!

"Crowded to death..."

"If you are afraid of crowding, go down separately!

No, no, no more honest and polite answers, no more smiling faces!

...There was also a futile stalemate at the door of the car, and your sister-in-law was holding a huge pannier tightly there。设若来贵嫂肯放下那背篓,凭着她宽阔的肩背,还有鼓着象蚯蚓一样的脉胳的小腿,连山一样的柴捆也能背回来,是不会畏惧哪一位男子汉的。But she still refused to put down her pail, and when the people pulled the pail around, she could not help but turn it around。Now, when at last she had grasped the door, the man was left in the carriage, but the pail was left outside the door, and it remained there。要上前一步是不可能的了,要她放下那背篓呢,你就万万不要这样想,她会瞪了眼,好不惊愕地看着你,鄙夷你竟然会生出这样的念头,再不明白你为什么会这样想的。

有一回,公路养护班在路旁植了一些幼小的柏树,来贵嫂背着柴捆回家的时候,就顺手把那些幼小的柏树梢摘在手里。This is very convenient。If you take off the top of the tree, it won't grow very tall. How can she do that?When people asked her this, she was surprised beyond expression。怎么?She wondered if the cypress branches were not used for smoking meat?So she said, and walked away, with that amused and contemptuous look on her face……

Wu old eight looked at your sister-in-law rose red face, can not help but sad。Not fully expecting to drive off on schedule?But finished, he has vaguely felt that this car is probably difficult to drive away……

"No -- busy -- speak --"

仿佛是在嘲弄吴老八,又仿佛是在嘲弄全体男女,牛这时候也叫起来了,不知在哪一处田埂上叫着,声音拖得长长的,乐呵呵的,仿佛在那儿挤眉弄眼的……

 

        二

 

The cow had been calling in a long voice on a grassy hill not far away;The car, too, stopped for a long time。

Oh, our spring fields in Ehwatun are, how can I say, moist and sad。The old generation said that in winter, the wind blows the underwater trees, so the leaves fall, the grass dies, and the color of the earth fades。Now it is spring, and the wind blows on the trees on the water。Look, then,A lonely mountain is good,It's good to leave the grass,All so saturated with water;Cauliflower blooms golden,The peaches and plums in full bloom are like light clouds;The partridge fluttered up,The paddy field is full of grass;And the car stopped,Just keep stopping at the entrance,One of the main roads was empty,Shining bright, warm sunlight……

Early in the morning, when people were waiting for the car, it did not seem too much to say that the situation was jubilant。You know, on this road stretching from Ehwatun, there were no passenger cars for a long time。Only in the autumn, the millet tart has passed, there will be heavy cars from the county to pull grain, and on weekdays, at a glance, the road is empty all day。No, people didn't have much to look forward to, did they。现在呢,干部同志们一律挎着黑色的提包,穿着出远门才穿的衣裳,四个兜,才从箱子里取出来,有些发皱,领子好象特别硬,但质地却至少是腈纶,熠熠地发亮,色泽断然很新,正如同志们矜持的神情。Those who were masters of health kept watch over the sacks and baskets, constantly calling to each other and speaking in a confident tone—种深以为是的神情点头,站起来又蹲下去,蹲下去又站起来,慷慨地为自己和别人点燃烟卷,仿佛哪儿已经应许着一天的好运,彼此全都明白了,却可是心照不宣。

The car is coming.,First appeared in the distant Wangxiang Rock there,Among the fir-tree mounds,Like a moving point of light,It's like scratching people's hearts,Can't help but be pleasantly surprised,For a moment there was some unspeakable doubt,Doubt it will turn into a car after all,Or did he finally slip out somewhere。But gradually, the little light really grew huge, striking the front, even the wheels and the smoke of the oil can be seen。.At that time, although there were no red flags waving in the wind, but as we have always loved to say, the field was noisy and hot。

恨不得转瞬间就到了天尽头!但您又以为怎么样,不大肯相信却又是真情实况,已经临近正午了,车也还Stand still地停着,还看不出开动的迹象。Carpenter Zhao's half a newly built brick house, and still maintain the same distance from the car;The Wangxiang rock of Qingdai is still in its original place。眯起眼睛来,即看见吴老八双手抱者头,深深地往膝盖那儿垂着,坐在路旁的一条田埂上,仿佛失恋的情人,Stand still,也不声不响……

吴老八曾经要求冯家三弟兄把麻袋搬下来,还有背篓啦,箩筐啦,也都要弄到车顶上放好,还是同车共济吧,然后再重新售票.This idea is very good, with the weather of Bao Yi Bo belt, but it seems that it is just the truth, and it seems that the heart can not solve the present。People have been in the carriages holding out for themselves,.No one would move。No one is willing to take back the arm that has been stretched out, and peep to cross the leg。I didn't stop for a moment, and yet

It's like it's frozen and braised。Which one of the settled smokers came, and the car was filled with the smell of sweat and smoke......

那末,李贵嫂的背篓还留在车门外边,这两年不拴在一起做庄稼了,她是背了背篓在做生意;好几位也还紧紧地抓着一点什么,象冬瓜一样悬在车窗上。A car can not drive away, Wu Lao eight got off to come。后来,人们也渐渐地下车来,在路上遛遛腿,抽抽烟,当然全都叫苦不迭,又当然全都委屈极了,在连声地抱怨。But their own seats were occupied by the clothes they had taken off, and those sacks, knapsacks and bags were still left in the compartment as they were。

The first wave has passed, and what is unfolding now is a long stalemate and waiting。Some of the people remained in the carriage, but most had already got out。Some sat under the eaves of Zhao's house, while others squatted by the road。而太阳是高高地照耀着了,场头映着一片眩人眼目的、愈见炽热起来的阳光,大家似乎都有些疲惫,脊背上在暖烘烘地发烫。No one moved much, and no one seemed to speak。Someone was chewing a random straw, someone was smoking hard。A man took the cloth off his head, shook it slowly for a while, and then wrapped it round and round……

Obviously, no one thinks that this can be blamed on themselves, and they have to suffer for others, and their own is really white and innocent。We Lihua Tun people, some do not carry baskets, but also as if to your wife, a lifetime will not be wrong。The whole stalemate is as thirsty as a dry lip, and as long as the road before the eye……

No, it's unlikely the Fong brothers would have moved those sacks。It's not about the sacks anymore. It's about Chief Du now。People alive is just a breath, in front of Director Du, this tone can not be disputed。

With a slant of sticky hair and a tight little square face, Director Du was sitting in the cerium motionless carriage, smoking obstinately。We already know that when Wu led him to the car, there was no seat left。At that time, when he caught a glimpse of those sacks, of course, he knew that they were the Feng brothers, and he shouted bitterly and shouted that they should be moved away as soon as possible。这原也是不错的;但是,以杜主任那油亮的、深恶痛绝的眼光看来,要搬开的就决不仅仅只是麻袋,还简直应该订出一条政策,一律不准象冯家兄弟这样的人出来。Ah, what kind of anger is this?要了解这种恚忿,就须得深知供销社主任这样一种身分:这一点在眼下要说清楚都已经有些费唇舌了,往后呢,则恐怕只能是历史家的责任。But keep it simple,Two rows of roof eaves in Ewha Tun,In a few decades from now,In this paternal family in Ehwatun,The director of the supply and marketing cooperatives is indeed like a father in charge of distribution,Tobacco, wine, sugar and tea,Fertilizer salt,All kinds of cloth,miscellaneous,I'll give it to you if I don't go through his hand,Nothing can be done。He got out of the army a long time ago, and since then, he's been a chief like this。那末,望乡岩旁不尽的杲杲日出,扁担山上不胜的悠悠风雨,他披着一件毛领短大衣,拖着一双布鞋,优游地在小街上走着,日子也过得挺好的。但万分没有想到,日子来到眼下,一件好端端的革命工作,竟然会变成了做生意,并且还无法不是和冯家这样的"Self-employed people" together, is now allowed。他那供销社的银行贷款,眼下已高达二百多万了,每月的经营呢,却还不够支付利息,这就让人一个心眼地想到,生意全是让这些人抢去的。就在上一个赶场天,为了在小街上争夺摆设摊子的地段,他还差一点同三兄弟动起手来,今天呢,他就决容不下这些麻袋。However, "Director Du," the Feng family said, patting the sack, "you may not have to manage this.?You can't do that if you're afraid!”大哥冯有富这样说,说完就把头扭向一边,万分不堪地笑起来,那神情明明是说,要不信么,咱们今天就来试一盘!

You see, then, that the three brothers have now begged a stool from Carpenter Zhao and are sitting under the eaves of the house, freely giving away cigarettes。Zhao carpenter's woman also gallantly brewed tea for these several loud men to bring out。冯有富、冯有贵、冯有禄,当然了,四十六岁的冯有富才是主心骨,高高的鼻梁,方正的脸蛋,衣袖卷着,胸怀却敞开,一副梨花屯男子汉的气派。A few years ago, he privately trafficked pigs, bought and sold medicinal materials, and sometimes took time to kill cattle and sell them, both bright and dark, large and small。Now that we have passed the Ming road, we really have some business flourishing in Sanjiang, and financial resources are flourishing all over the world。But all this seems not to show, and people are no longer confused about his background。The family lived in a newly built two-story house at the other end of the field, and feasts were constant。那末,客人而今也都很有身分了,不是本地的书记或主任,就是外地的厂长或经理,再不就是书记变成的董事,主任而今变成的经理,到了出得门来的时候,一个个都是醉意朦胧,或者眉开眼笑的。也许就是因为这样吧,他敢情不会把杜主任放在眼里,哪怕只是为了上个赶场天的那一场争吵,今天的这几只麻袋,也是要较量下去的。在那赵木匠家的檐下,大哥有富这时正站起身来,对旁边的人豪爽地说话,虽然您听不清楚都说了些什么,但您就仿佛听见他在说:老子不搬下来,他今天还能咬了我吗才怪!

那末,稍微地离开檐下的人群一些,在靠近赵木匠家菜地的一条草坎上,坐着的也是四十好几岁的孟铁匠,衣着似乎欠整洁,相貌可是一表堂堂。Now he was smoking in silence, his wrist resting on his knee, his eyes as sad as a heavy horse。He was also supposed to have something today, and that arm accidentally touched the bank's accountant Chen。Even if he was willing to forgive blacksmith Meng, the young accountant Chen was so angry that he could not forgive the blacksmith Meng。No, the pit was not here; another absent blacksmith, Zhou, was involved, and the whole affair was initiated by the ironworks in the side street……

An iron factory on the edge of the river has always been broken and crumbling。Blacksmith Meng contracted the factory last year and made some profits for a time. In this respect, he did nothing wrong but deserved merit。But Zhou blacksmith is young and stubborn, people are also scheming, and he is always dissatisfied with the contract, but he has his own reason。“就是资本家呢,还得靠白手起家,”他摊开双手吼道,“现在倒好,现现成成的一间工厂,本来是大家的,倒拿给你一伙人去做生意?哪一个都管不了你,倒好象是你私人开的!”应该修改合同,应该不管从哪方面看来都更有分寸,这一点孟铁匠也考虑到了,也很同意。However, Zhou blacksmith in turn proposed to start a new stove by himself, although he put forward a more stringent military order, Meng Blacksmith refused to agree。The temper of the doll in the Zhou family he knows, a stage will surely kill the chicken to take the egg, now it will be happy, but later will put down a rotten stall。“不怕的!”那人已经放出过话来了,倒是一语中的:“到时候又不会破产,不会坐班房,充其量不当厂长也就完事,怕哪样呢?Supposedly, the matter has nothing to do with Chen accountant, but how do you know that Zhou blacksmith and Chen accountant happen to be relatives。陈会计是前有两年顶替父亲到银行工作的,在那银行里又都是熟人,于是就在贷款和周转这些关节上,故意和孟铁匠过不去。孟铁匠走投无路之下,就只好写信上告了,几经周折之后,事情倒是有了一些眉目,但这样一来,陈会计就变得和孟铁匠誓不两立。Unless they did not sit together, once they met, Accountant Chen would always seek him out to make trouble。What's more, this blacksmith Meng's arm still grazed his shoulder today?But they can't be in the same car, so what?

Oh, it was not Secretary Lu from the district who kicked Teacher Cen's bag today, but it was Secretary Lu, which is unspeakably bad。In this way, Teacher Cen's canvas bag, it is absolutely not willing to move。Just as Accountant Chen will not let go of blacksmith Meng, Teacher Cen will not let go of Secretary Lu。You see, Teacher Cen is still angry, and the agricultural science station of the old Guo, standing there on the slope。不知什么原因,仿佛就是这两年,岑老师这个人也好象变得特别容易动气:黄瘦的脸膛,快五十岁了,常常发起脾气来,让同学到教室外边去站着,或者动辄就拒绝上课。Bugs were found in his lunch in the cafeteria. He's not in class。His classmates forgot to clean the blackboard and he didn't attend class。He didn't seem like that。“四人帮”横行的那些年,他子女多,女人没有工作,老穿着一身满是补丁的、显得短小的衣裳,对校方也好,对同学也好,都是唯唯诺诺的。Between you and me, it's a flattering look, and it makes you sad。It is said that he is now the head of teaching and research, last year or the year before it, should also be how long a salary。But it is said that it finally did not, the reason is that the Lu secretary of the district secretly pressed down。Maybe that's why he became so angry?Then, of course, it must be said that things happen for a reason。It can be imagined that if he absolutely refused to move his bag, he would be intolerant of the secretary, which seemed to be human nature。

At this time, he talked with the old Guo beside him, looking particularly enamored。这一点很容易明白,老郭早年就毕业于农学院,却没有评上农技师的职称,情形同岑老师完全一样,也是秘书在往上面报告的时候给压下来的。How is that possible?But you only have to look at Secretary Lu's stubborn expression to understand that this is entirely possible。Secretary Lu is also fifty years oldI, whose home was in the village of Ewha, was sitting on a thicket of grass by the roadside, spreading the tobacco leaf at my knee, and quietly rolling a cigarette。He always wore an old woolen hat and a pair of blue cloth shoes, and rolled tobacco all day。He started to work very early, and finally became a secretary, and his salary was not much more。一辈子只听说过有书记、副书记、主任、副主任,还从来没听说过还有可以随便长工资的文凭,也没听说过还有可以随便长工资的职称。Therefore, no matter how old Guo had quarreled with him, no matter what teacher Cen had just done to him?No matter how angry he was, he just rolled his brown eyes, and you still said nothing。

……不,不,That doesn't seem to be the case,There seems to be something missing. What is necessary,For example,There should be a ticket office at the entrance,There should be some necessary regulations;There should be someone walking around,Or try to talk some sense into it,Or maybe it's more than just persuasion,And do something else;It should be up to the Tang District governor to...however,对了,I don't seem to have seen Mayor Tang,Where did he go?

No, he wasn't there, he was probably invited to tea by one of the nearby houses!...There are very ordinary, very clear things that should undoubtedly be done that just aren't being done。Although it would be surprising to think about it, it still hasn't been done, hasn't been done。Tang District mayor earned the dough, not recently, but has been using skin cream。

"It is better to be an official!"Someone said sarcastically as he climbed in from the side。I do not know if the Tang district mayor himself thinks so, but the Tang District mayor's woman often said unjustly that the official is not how。The salary is so 70 or 80 yuan, which was still a sum in the past, but now it is really not much more than a little。Jin Mazi they went outside to run a trip, zero spent more than these money。Then it is neither clear nor difficult to see what the Tang District chiefs are doing over the years。Only when they were busy, they occasionally turned around and saw that the district office was a three-story, newly built building.Buildings with large dormitories stood heavy on the side of the road。A flat roof could now be seen, perched like a dragonfly on top of the recently installed all-channel television antenna……

Oh, my God, where's the hope?There was no hope。

 

         三

 

However, it would be a mistake to think that the car would never drive。This does not make clear the life of our land in Lihuatun, nor does it make clear the spleen and stomach of the people in our land in Lihuatun。

It was not as if the sight of baskets and sacks on the roof and people settling down in the carriages could never be seen again?但是,怎么说呢,在这一次远行的第三幕里,即是这一篇梨花屯行车纪实的第三段里,幸乎不幸乎,我们无法不来接着叙述的,却又刚好是这种景象。It appeared, but completely in line with Wu's earlier hopes, just like that there is a broad principle of the weather, and even better。

啊,春天的梨花屯的田野,不论远远的望乡岩也好,近旁的核桃树也好,还有无边无际的阳光也好,都完全可以作证:人们待在这场头,不是仿佛耍闹一个人老天荒、鱼死网破?But in fact, including all the people, everyone for this car, and has always been very affectionate and long-lasting。No one left the game?No, no, not one。They were all just circling around the car。Although there is a spirit to fight to the death, but the mind is still tightly tied to the car。噢,真要闹到象原来那样,女人们又象负着轭一样地背了背篓上路,男人们也把担子横在肩头上,再啸出一声声"Ah Yi", which one will be willing?因此你瞧人们那神情,在檐下坐着的也好,在路边蹲着的也好,抽烟的也好,不抽烟的也好,一个个又都好象十分淸楚,到头来,这辆车还是要开来的。

This time, it was blacksmith Meng who started it。Blacksmith Meng had been sitting in front of the Zhao family's vegetable patch, and every now and then he would look up and glance across the field。What was he watching for?What did he see afterwards?Look, this one is already chewing grass stalks, and that one is smoking quietly。Accountant Chen pulled out his stubble, tilted his neck and rolled his eyes for a while。Eldest brother Feng Youfu is also drinking tea, lazy no longer open his mouth, obviously showing slack...Maybe it's at this point that things start to work out?Uduma Point finally saved!

At this moment, blacksmith Meng stood up, paused for a moment, and then moved toward the eaves of Carpenter Zhao's house-- Walking towards eldest brother Feng Youfu。

Needless to say, this is the crux of the matter。This man, Blacksmith Yu, was not a blacksmith; he had actually worked for longer than the Tang District chief。Over the years, if he had not been punished and reinstated, criticized and sent down, he would have been above the head of the Tang district in any respect。But after a few storms, he could no longer catch up with the Tang district mayor: of course, all those years of eating"Big pot rice", but it is to scoop rice into a big pot to eat, you should be a few POTS, I should be a few POTS, and then add a few POTS, and this regulation is extremely strict。Later, he moved to the iron factory, and then he became a blacksmith。If you want to strike iron, you must strike the iron while it is hot, and you must not hurry or slow, light or heavy。

“有富,”到得近前;孟铁匠就开始说,象一个男子汉对一个男子汉一样地开始说,“你就算了,事情呢,大家也知道……”同样象一个男子汉一样,冯有富也站起来,并且把烟也递过来了:“老孟,你是看见的!你说是不是?Do not deceive others too much..."

“那是。”

"Of course..."

In fact, as soon as Blacksmith Meng got up, Feng Youfu noticed him and almost stood up before he came near him。Of course, this is not discouragement, that director Du simply has nothing to say;And definitely not for the seven sacks that have to be delivered today, so how?只是,天下英雄使君与操,一街的人都会看见,他冯有富无所畏惧,却极通人情,不能不领孟铁匠的情,英雄不能不怜英雄,惺惺也不能不惜惺惺。

"Two brothers," said Blacksmith Meng, leaning slightly toward the noble and the rich, "come here..Give me a hand. Get the sack down。Take it off. Put it on the roof...""Go," said Feng Youfu, the eldest brother, "you didn't hear me.?Since Brother Meng says so..."

In this way, blacksmith Meng led, the two brothers took the rear, and the three of them walked towards the carriage。Feng Youfu stay and light the smoke。Then, when a match is struck, it ignites not a cigarette, but a whole field。孟铁匠虽然是不声不响地来到赵木匠家近前的,他与冯有富说些什么稍远一点的人也未必能听清楚,但那气势早被大家看见了,站着的人们,蹲着的人们,全都一下子行动起来,一齐向车厢那儿撵过去。'Don't do anything!

"Cried a loud voice。This is Secretary Liu, who suddenly appeared out of nowhere。The tide was held back。People don't seem to be messing around this time either。刘书记这脸膛,这声音,这凛然的神情,似乎让人们想起了过去的年代,对梨花屯的人们来说,也还是相当地有威力。

"Any one who tries to mess up again," Secretary Liu said sternly, "will not be allowed to get on the train today;It's outrageous..., '

"Basket, basket!”唐区长也不知从哪儿现出来了,这边那边地指挥着,划着手,“车上的那些背篼,咹,都先、先拿下来……小芳,嗯,小芳,找人去——叫一叫小芳……”

It seems that Tang district mayor has experience, noticed that Xiaofang is not present, and pointed out that she is mostly to her uncle's home。Xiao Fang does not sell tickets, things can not be effectively advanced。

'I'll go!Zhang Lao Mo said, a beat chest, thousands of miles to the army。

Things looked promising...But at this time, there was a new crisis, including your wife, people began to send their own things to the roof of the carriage。But there was only a narrow iron ladder hanging down。This has created a new congestion, if not removed in time, the smoke will be filled again。

"Get out of the way!A bold, intimidating voice shouted, "Let me do it.!

This is the young accountant Chen, who is famous for his temper and ability to do things。I saw him climbing the iron ladder and in a single move he was on the roof of the car。

"Come up another person, no, no, don't you, - old Waro, you come up.!He stood on the roof of the car, and kept intoning, unspeakably directing the sutra。“先上麻袋!……靠前边……背篼,背篼拿上来……靠左边,嗯,还要再靠过去!……帮他一把,快,三哥,往这边……”

The roof of the coach was empty, rolled up with an old green canvas。In an instant, the whole tarp came apart, swelled, and was securely roped over the roof of the car。It can be seen that the front, near the front of the car, is the gunny bag of the three brothers of the Feng family。Next to the sack, there were several baskets。A little later, put the tarp slightly up, it is undoubtedly to your sister-in-law's basket。It was larger than an ordinary striped basket, and the bamboo strips were full of colorCovered with a gray-black plastic film, it is the kind of seedling breeding that is distributed by agricultural stations。The waist is also tied with a rope, and then pulled tight around the low

On the bars。It never shakes, and it never falls。All this was orderly, neat, and unspeakably beautiful enough to travel a thousand miles!

When the luggage was almost cleared, Zhang returned triumphantly with Xiao Fang。

Xiao Fang's black hair was still beautifully draped, and she held a rosy, embossed leather bag in her hand, looking hesitant。Master Wu hasn't spoken yet, and she doesn't dare sell the ticket。But she's trying to sell it, and the hesitation is kind of cute。

She approached Wu Lao Eight Wu Master……”

The sun was shining hot and sweltering on the ground。Wu Lao Ba, however, still sat motionless on the grass stalk as before。这时候扭过头来瞥了她一眼,一脸漠然的、冷冷的神情,仿佛眼前的事情和他并不相干,或者他根本就没有看见眼前的情形。This is a painful, hopeless, and finally become indifferent look, blank and dream leisurely。He didn't say a word, then turned his head away again。

'Not afraid!Old man Zhang said, "Let me help you, number first..."

But Xiao Fang still hesitated。It's still a tough sell because of the crowd。

A plan was put forward in time, by the mathematics teacher Cen and the future agricultural technician。It turned out that while everyone was busy, two people had cleared the number of people。Fifty-one in all。There are forty numbered seats in the carriage, and eleven people standing in the aisle are no problem。What's left to analyze, like the possible sets of solutions to an equation, is who sells seats and who sells standing-room tickets……

"I'm standing, we're all standing!

Eldest brother Feng Youfu do not know how long also came over, then generously said。Obviously, everyone should understand that he is only looking down on the dark officer Du, and is by no means trying to make trouble with everyone。As for Nagisa, they are all good neighbors.Good folks, he Feng brothers will be polite to you。

From his generous look, if he is not a Shandong Hubaoyi, he must be a Hebei jade Qilin。

"I'm standing..."Meng said with a smile。

Mr. Zhang said there was also me!”

"Well," said Asako Jin, thinking twice and finally making up her mind, "I am also counting one..."?

Several others made a touching gesture on the spot。那末,该照顾刘书记和唐区长,有一位老人和几位妇女;票呢,编了号,一一地卖过去,排着第几就是第几;所有这些大家都表示赞同,只求快一点,全没异议。

And so, the next thing we see, it's just wonderful。Throughout the carriage, people were quiet。It's still crowded, of course, but it doesn't feel crowded at all。People are taking their places, taking care not to invade others'。Secretary Liu, dark-faced, was seated in seat number one by the front window, which seemed to have been approved by the whole party。The white Tang district mayor sat in the front row on the left, which seemed to be everyone's default。Director Du and Secretary Lu were worse off, and their faces were not so good, but they did not disagree。Blacksmith Meng went to the end, and was standing, and seemed a little aggrieved, but he solved the knot of Accountant Chen, and also appeared calm and happy。Finally, the two intellectuals' seats were still far back, but they seemed to know that it was no use trying hard, and they were finally satisfactory。To your sister-in-law is good, sitting in front safely, maybe everyone is afraid of her three points, let her with Chen accounting together。那末,张老幺现在甘愿站着了,在前边挨着小芳,斜着一只肩膀,搭讪着和姑娘说起了深圳怎么样、广州又怎么样,谈吐和举止兴许都象义侠佐罗?Jin Mazi, the three brothers of the Feng family, all stood in a kind of generous and mournful attitude, who will fall into the fire pit if I do not go。Even the man close to the door looked much more cautious, deeply afraid that the door would not close, and always turned his body over……

Will it be like this?It was like this, apparently ordinary, but like a miracle。Most like not long ago, everyone was playing around, but it was all true truth。It seemed that nothing had happened, that there had not been those swoops, that there had not been those swoops, that people had not returnedThe carpenter's house has never squatted on the road under the eaves。The sun is always so bright?牛叫的声音呢,虽然也拖长着,就纯粹是祝贺,“好啊——,好啊——”人们都耐心而和气,礼让而安详,再没有什么不满意、不利索的地方。Then, a car - the original long car shadow also shrank:Very, very short- just waiting to eat happily。

"Master Wu:Let's drive.!

"Old eight, get up, don't sit down anymore!"

"Master Wu,看嘛,大家都坐好了!”大家开始在车上拳拳地向吴老八喊话,不管是哪一位,殷切的期望现在也都尽用了柔媚的语气来表达。

 At that time, the sun had completely set, and when I looked out of the car window, I could no longer see any shadow over the whole field of Ehwatun。All the shadows were as tight as they could be, and there was nothing but an ever-present light in the horizon。Master Wu should be driving, otherwise, there is no time?Wu old eight did not see loose。I don't know how long, he put a motionless back to everyone。

"Master Wu!The car, you still have to take;Work, we'll improve later..."

"Old eighth brother, today I am a brotherfI'm sorry to ask you for this favor!

"Yeah, Captain Wu, you have to be a little bigger!

It is not difficult to distinguish that these are the voices of Tang District Mayor, Feng Youfu and Zhang Laoyao。

猛然地,吴老八站起来了,一下子回过身来,嘴唇猛烈地哆嗦着,仿佛要把什么话道出来,看上去那样懊恼和痛苦,使所有的人都不由得一惊。

Everyone waited and said no more。

But Wu Lao Ba is just like this to mumble for a while, but finally did not say anything, then bowed his head, under his hands, and for a while did not bite。When he was done, he raised his head again, and shook it to himself, as if he had calmed down at last, and smiled a little relieved and a little sad。

也许.When he saw that everything had finally become like this, he felt even more of his earlier absurdity?Perhaps, he wanted to say to everyone, what is the trouble, playing like this already, how can it delay so much time?But, as if at the last moment, he seemed to understand, and even himself was a little amused。

"Well, then, please take your seats!"

Wu Lao Ba finally said so, and smiled at everyone again, much calmer and more comfortable。Maybe, judging by the resultsHe should give a triumphant salute to everyone。He should apologize to everyone for sitting on that straw。"Drive, don't worry!"

Of course, everyone was sitting very well, and then all breathed a sigh of relief, and unanimously smiled successfully at Wu Old Eight, then, of course, it was also apologetic。

Aaargh!Go far!

这一来,毗连的水田和青葱的土丘都开始旋转了,扁担山也在斜斜地移动,电线起伏地在一旁追逐,大片大片的菜花,朝着人们的面庞迎上来,跟着又退下去...The rock of Hope is also leaning towards the window,+After a long time with a green to fill the window full。Wu old eight body owe up, the card file increased a gear, the window is quickly toward the green to meet up。唂,这A forest will soon disappear through the window, and then a narrow strip of flat water will appear before us。Then, next to a tall pine tree with traces of knives and axes from the time of the Great Leap Forward, there was Baiyangtun。在那儿,将会有人下车,又将会有人上车,希望不会有什么迭宕,但就是有一点呢,吴老八无声地浮起来一丝微笑,也不会怎么的。The car will still drive by。到后来,就会驶过沙溪场、三合镇……在大柏树那儿接上柏油大路……等看见一座吃立着的烟囱的时候,那末就是说,看见了县城……
