“Teacher, you test me again! ……If he had insisted to sell the medicine to the faked Eight Routes Army man QiaoGuoYu how can he refuse to meet this real one?”

“He had been trapped once. How dare he meet another so called Eight Routes Army man though you are the real one? ”

“Teacher, I have good reason to make him willing to. Firstly I would let Mrs.Miao lead me there. Sasaki the doctor cares about her misfortune. Secondly, Sasaki the doctor had told professor Miao that Umemura had showed my photo to him. It seem he did not feel sick of me. Thirdly, my purpose is to save out his friend—professor Miao—and the doctor is worrying over it by this time. So for sure he’s willing to accept my help in spite of that I’m an Eight Routes Army Man.”


Sun rose up and the silver snow outside turned into a glazing world of rainbow in the reflection. ZhangYi was broadening his mind. He smiled at the determined look of HongYuan and say: “Ok, I give you the chance to meet Sasaki the Doctor. But the national traitor of BaiShiWu made too much destruction. You should talk about him in the conversation and try to make Matsusaki arrest the guy. Then Umemura lost one of her arms more over we might get something secrete from his mouth. We have difficulty to achieve the goal but we have to. Little Cao, do you have a way to persuade Matsusaki into it? ”

“Oh, my teacher, you agreed!It’s too good! Too good!…… Yes, the BaiShiWu! We have to get him this time!” HongYuan held onto the arm of ZhangYi, “Whatever difficulty it is, just let me try! Later I will hand over my plan. I can complete the mission!” then he put on his JRAA uniform and turned to walk out of the house.

ZhangYi couldn’t help nodding his head in delight watching the shadowing of HongYuan in the departure.

“A stubborn child! Lovely and stubborn……

In the afternoon two guests arrived at the newly established institude of Sasaki the doctor. The man was in a set of grey wollen western suit with a suitable grey overcoat outside it. He had a wollen hat and kept in his smart tranquil manner. The woman also dressed decently: She was in a set of navey blue western suit with fox skin overcoat outside it. The woman spread a little powder on her pale face. The two were lead to a not so big meeting roon on the second floor then the host pushed open the door and went in a moment later.

Sasaki the doctor was in his white over and cloth cap—obviously he had been working in his laboratory a moment before. He nodded and smiled to the woman firstly and greeted: “Sorry madam for my late welcome!”Then he observed the man for an instance before he made a bow and reached out his hand to greet in Japanese:

“Welcome! Take a seat please!”

The guest returned a bow, shook the hand of Sasaki the doctor and answered politely:

“Sorry to disturb you Sasaki the doctor! You’re so busy!” then he bowed deeply in Japanese manner to Sasaki the doctor for which the doctor returned a bow.

The female guest interpreted for them in fluent Japanese then she said to Sasaki the doctor:

“Mr.Sasaki, can we use your laboratory for a talk.”

As soon as Sasaki the doctor saw the man he felt him familiar. Then he thought of the photo Umemura had presented to him…… The doctor smiled to say:

“There’re a variety of bacterias in my laboratory. Do you fear of them? ”the doctor supported his spectacles and observed the smart and gentle young man in front of him, “Anyhow, today I invite you to a laboratory clean of bacteria. This way please!”

……

“It’s too good and let’s go.”Mrs.Miao suggested to move as soon as possible in case someone else may visit at the time.

That is a meeting carefully designed by CaoHongYuan and Mrs.Miao. YangXueMei had talked to Sasaki the doctor that she will introduce a friend who can rescue professor Miao to him. He’d better arrange the meeting in his laboratory. Sasaki the doctor felt something surprise and uneasy for he did not know who Mrs.Miao would brought to him. But the meeting concerns the rescue of professor Miao and he’s so urgent in the rescue of his friend. So the doctor agreed considering Mrs.Miao personally too.

Analysis: If they want to rescue Professor Miao they had to make use of the contradiction between Matsusaki and Umemura. The life of professor looks nothing important in the eyes of the enemy. They don’t care he’s innocent or not. But the message from jail created an opportunity. Umemura wanted to trap Matsusaki. Matsuski had to get the professor out before the professor could confess his involvement. So an unimportant Chinese life now seemed so important to the old fox of Matsusaki.

442楼

三个人走出客室,走廊里悄无人声,异常清净。佐佐木领着鸿远和苗夫人走过两条装上铁门的过道,来到一个过道式的房间。这里的木板墙壁上挂着几件洁白的大褂,一张凳前,放着几双白布鞋,一个小柜上的盘子里,还放着几顶白布帽。不等佐佐木发话,苗夫人先笑道:

“要进你的无菌室了。我们也要变成实验人员,该换上消毒衣帽吧?”

佐佐木笑着点头。鸿远和苗夫人立刻脱下大衣、鞋子、围巾,罩上白大褂,穿上白拖鞋,戴上白布帽。佐佐木也把自己的白衣和鞋帽另换了一套。等三个人都换好衣服,佐佐木才拿出钥匙打开墙边的屋门。门一打开,这才看见整个实验室的情景围绕着三面墙壁都是相连的试验台,宽约两尺左右,一色洁白的瓷砖铺成,明光光、亮堂堂。这些白色长条试验台上放着用铁丝框子装着的一瓶瓶培养皿。靠另侧墙壁摆着离心机、恒温箱和烤箱等各种仪器。屋子当中还有一个大试验台,台上放着几架显微镜和各类试管、试剂、烧瓶、玻璃片、吸管等。这些器皿散放着,好像正要做试验的样子。实验室虽然不很大,却一尘不染、十分整洁,给人一种庄严肃穆的感觉。这时曹宏远忽然想起柳明要是她也一起来到这儿,一定会说是走进医学科学的殿堂了。

佐佐木看看室内仅有的三个小白凳圆圆的好象玩具似的,就对苗夫人摆着手笑笑:

“嫂夫人,你要和客人坐这种小凳了。对不起,在实验室中待客,只好坐它。”说着,把三个散开放着的小凳移得相近些,三个人靠近大试验台坐下。

刚一坐定,居中坐着的苗夫人用日语替两位男人介绍说:

“这位佐佐木博士是振宇的要好朋友。这位朱光年先生虽然年纪还轻,也是振宇的要好朋友。朋友的朋友,彼此都应当是朋友。佐佐木桑!”苗夫人用手指着鸿远,对佐佐木笑道,“你会喜欢这位年轻的朋友的。他也很钦佩你的为人。今天,我特地把他领来,叫你们两位朋友的朋友也称为朋友。”

鸿远趁机站起身来,向佐佐木恭敬地点点头,笑着说:

“佐佐木博士,中国人的口头客套爱说‘久仰’这个字眼。而我却在内心深处蕴藏着对您‘久已景仰’四个字。今天能够有机会当面向您求教,我感到非常高兴!”

苗夫人把鸿远的话婉转地给佐佐木翻译完毕后,佐佐木睁大眼睛凝视着鸿远,微微惊讶地说:

“朱先生,您与我从未见面相处,怎么说出‘久已景仰’这样的字眼呢?”

不等鸿远回答,苗夫人接口答道:

“佐佐木桑,你怎么忘记了?振宇那张嘴,对他信任的好朋友能够守口如瓶么?你作为一个日本学者,同情中国对日本侵略者的抵抗,愿意把药品卖给坚决抗战的八路军甚至很钦佩华北八路军作战英勇……这些,他都对他的年轻朋友朱桑讲过。所以,朱桑自然非常尊敬你这位主持正义的日本朋友了。他今天所以敢来看望你,就是因为你是中国民众的可靠朋友……”

“呵!呵!……”佐佐木严肃地望着苗夫人那双激动得眼睛。然后,扭头望着端坐在小白凳上含笑不语的鸿远。沉默了几秒钟,闪动着深沉的目光,低声说道:

“既然我的真实思想都已被朱先生了解,而且得到理解,那么,我们就可以作为真正朋友敞开心扉来谈话了。今天,您来找我有什么事情?就请直言吧!”

苗夫人准确地翻译着。佐佐木和鸿远都同时点头,相互会意地一笑。

佐佐木这种直率而诚恳的态度,既在鸿远的意中,又在他的意外。他没有料到,佐佐木刚和他见面,没说几句话,只由苗夫人机敏而适时地捅开了这层窗户纸,他就毫不犹豫地承认自己的真实思想,甚至请战似地向鸿远要求“直言”。

鸿远富裕表情的眼睛闪耀着喜悦的光彩,又一次握住佐佐木的手:

“中日战事正在激烈进行中,出现您这样高尚的、有真知灼见的人物,这是日本人民的光荣和骄傲,也是中国人民的光荣和骄傲。今天能够见到您,我太高兴了!在中国抵抗日本帝国主义侵略战争中,您坚持真理正义的精神,是很令人钦佩的。”

不等苗夫人翻译完,佐佐木连连摆手说:

443楼

“朱先生,您太过誉了!不过,我要对您说心里话,自从苗教授被那个日本女特务梅村津子捕走以后,我精神很痛苦。我对不起我的老朋友,也对不起中国人民……”说着,佐佐木看了苗夫人一眼,负疚似的垂下头来。

“博士,你的心意我和苗夫人都很理解您是没有责任的。您不要有这种负疚的心情。因为苗教授的被捕,都是梅村津子阴险的预谋她的目的不仅要在苗教授身上下毒手;很快也要在您、在松崎特务机关长身上下毒手,甚至连令兄华北派遣军最高指挥官也在她狂妄的目标之内。这个女人的政治野心很大。她想要打败松崎,邀得日本大本营的赏识,以便更快地扶摇直上这个女人就因为在东北诬陷了另一个大特务,甚至把那个人害死,才能够爬上现在的高位……这些情况,博士,您大概不大知道吧?”

佐佐木用惊异的目光盯着鸿远白帽子底下那双明澈机敏的大眼睛,心想:这个人对于日本各派系特务之间的情况也知道得很清楚,倒是不简单他显然是梅村拿着照片到处追捕、而又追捕不到的曹宏远无疑了。今天,他却以朱光年的化名突然来找上门来。认识这个人,也是有幸呢……想到这儿,佐佐木点头说:

“朱先生的分析可能是对的。只是,我每天在这种用多重屋门与世隔绝的实验室里过生活,日本特务之间勾心斗角的事情,我虽听说过一点,但是并不清楚。因为我从来不去探听这种卑鄙的行径。今天,朱先生既然提到他们,就请把尊意直说吧!”

等苗夫人吧佐佐木的话翻译过了,鸿远趁势单刀直入:

“现在,要救出苗教授,要保住你们的华北支店,包括救阁下自己当然,这里面也还包括救我和苗夫人,甚至救松崎在内……”说到这儿,鸿远微眯着眼睛朝佐佐木笑了一下。他这一笑,显出他在老练当中,还带有一股纯真、朴实的青年气味,“我有一个粗浅的想法不知对不对就是要叫松崎知道他们目前的处境包括令兄,也要提起他的贼心。就是要激起他们的忿怒,赶快回击梅村,打破梅村快要得逞的阴谋诡计。这件事情,只有博士您可以做到。别的人,是无法见到松崎和令兄的……

听了苗夫人的翻译后,佐佐木正义立刻紧皱双眉,连连摇头:

“有些话我也对松崎他们说过了,但是没有用……”

鸿远刚要说什么,却被苗夫人抢了先:

“佐佐木桑,你上次去找松崎,也许还不是时机。如今,振宇写出来的信证明梅村从他嘴里什么口供也没有捞到。尤其是他信里提到,梅村甚至向振宇逼问你们同松崎的关系。现在,你如果拿着振宇的这封信去找松崎,我相信……”苗夫人说到这里,稍稍喘了口气,用手指指鸿远和自己,加重了语气,“松崎一定会火冒三丈的!朱先生原来就估计过,松崎开始不愿意帮助你救出振宇,是他留了一手他怕振宇在梅村的严刑逼供下说出什么对他不利的话。所以,他要看一看、等一等。现在振宇被捕已经十三天了,他的信证明梅村什么也没有捞着……所以,按照这种情况,你再去找松崎,把振宇的信拿给他看,他的态度一定会和过去不同的!佐佐木桑,你仔细想想,是不是这样的?”

鸿远看佐佐木没有立刻答话,接着苗夫人的话说:

“博士,您知道,松崎和梅村之间矛盾是很深的。这两个人势不两立。松崎一定也在打主意击败梅村。说不定他已经做了安排……如果您现在再拿苗教授的信去给松崎看,估计他一定会采取有力的措施至少可以救出苗教授来……还有,梅村手下有条狗名叫白士吾,不知道您听说过没有?他认识苗教授的女儿苗虹。就是他,用了各种手段给梅村提供情报包括华北支店的情报,都是这条走狗向梅村提供的。您如果去见松崎,可以建议他先捉起白士吾来。那不仅斩断了梅村的手臂,还会从他嘴里了解到梅村的许多阴谋诡计……”

444楼

The three walked out of the meeting room. There’s no voice in the corridor so especially peaceful and quiet.


HongYuan and Mrs.Miao walked through two corridors with two iron doors to separate in the lead of Sasaki the doctor then arrived at an apartment in corridor style. Some clean white overalls were hanging on the wooden wall. Some white cloth shoes were placed in front of a bench and some white cloth caps were positioned in a tray on a small cupboard. Mrs.Miao smiled to say before Sasaki the doctor ever said anything:

“We have to change into laboratory men before we enter your bioclean room. Let’s change into disinfection clothes.”


Sasaki the doctor nodded in smile. HongYuan and Mirs.Miao took off their overcoats, shoes and scarfs then changed into white overall, white slippers and white cloth caps. Sasaki the doctor opened the door on the wall with a key aftrer the three had dressed up. As they opened the door the scene of the laboratory went into their eyes: the room was encircled in three sides by adjoining testbeds. They measured two inches in width and paved by clean white ceramic mosaic in uniform shinining and clear. Many peri-dishes were contained in an iron wire frame on the long testbed. On the testbed opposite placed separator, incubator and oven as well as other instruments. There’s also a large testbed in the middle of the room. Some microscopes, testtubes, reagents, flasks, glass sheets and suckers etc were placed on. Those utensils were place in disorder as if the test was on. The not so big laboratory looks tidy and clean creating a solemn atmosphere. The instance CaoHongYuan thought of LiuMing suddenly. If she could come here she should take it as a real palace of medicine.

Sasaki the doctor perceived there were only three white benches in the laboratory—they have round surface like toys. Then he waved and smiled to Mrs.Miao:

“Madam, you and your company had to sit on the small bench. I’m sorry you have to sit on them for it’s a reception in the laboratory. ”Then he moved the three separated benches much nearer to one another and the three sat down themselves by the big testbed.

As soon as they settled themselves Mrs.Miao who sat in the middle introduced Sasaki the doctor and HongYuan to each other:

“This is Sasaki the doctor—a good friend of professor Miao. This is ZhuGuangNian though still young he’s also a good friend of professor Miao. The friend’s friends are frends. Mr.Sasaki!” Mrs.Miao smiled to Sasaki and pointed to HongYuan in the mean time, “You’ll like this young friend. He admires your conduct. Today I lead him here and let you be friends.”

HongYuan took the chance to stood up. He nodded and smiled to HongYuan:

“According to Chinese customer there’s a phrase people like to use ‘I’ve long been looking forward to see you.’ But in my heart it’s in fact ‘I’ve long been in the respect of you’ I’m very happy to have this chance to learn from you in person.”


When Mrs. Miao translated HongYuan’s words in a round about way Sasaki stared wide his eyes at him and said in some surprise:

“Mr.Zhu, we have never met before how can you ‘long been in the respect’ of me?


Before HongYuan prompted an answer Mr.Miao responed:

“Mr.Sasaki, how can you forget ZhenYu couldn’t keep anything secrete from his real friend? As a Japanese scholar you have sympathy on our anti-Japanese activity and willing to sell your medicine to the Eight Routes Army. You even admire the heroic deeds of our Eight Routes Army……My husband had told Zhu all these about you. So for sure Mr.Zhu respect you upright Japanese friend. Today he dare to see you for you’re dependable friend of Chinese people……

“Oh!Oh!……” Sasaki the doctor solemnly looked at the emotional eyes of Mr.Miao. then he turned to looked at HongYuan who sat on the bench smiling silently. The silence lasted a few seconds then HongYuan said in low voice his eyes looked deep.

“Now that Mr.Zhu knew what I have in mind and you understand me so well then we can talk sincerely to eath other like true friend. Please tell me what you want me to do directly. ”

Mrs. Miao translated accurately. Sasaki and HongYuan all nodded their heads and smiled understandingly to each other.

The sincere and directness of Sasaki the doctor was partly in the expectation of HongYuan. He had not expected Sasaki the doctor should admit his real thoughts only after a few address when Mrs.Miao poked through the “window paper”, he even asked HongYuan to express directly as if for a mission.

The expressable eyes of HongYuan were blinking in delight. He shook the hand of Sasaki the doctor again and again.

“China and Japan’s in fierce battle now while you behaved so holy and have true knowledge. You’re the pride of Japanese people; you’re the pride of Chinese people. I’m so happy that I can meet you today. In our war against the invasion of Japanese militarists I admire your spirit of holding to justice. ”

Before Mrs.Miao could finish interpreting Sasaki the doctor waved his hand in deny:

No, Mr.Zhu, you praised me too much. But I have to tell you the truth: since the arrest of professor Miao by Umemura I was severely tortured psychologically. I’m so sorry for my old friends; I’m so sorry for Chinese people……” Then he threw a guilty look at Mrs.Miao and bent low his head.

445楼

“Doctor, I well understand your meaning and Mrs.Miao’s. But you hold no responsibility in it. You don’t have to develop such guilty feeling. For Umemura plotted the arrest of professor Miao. Her target not only range in the professor but also in you, Matsusaki and even your brother—the supreme commander in North China. The woman has grand political ambition. She want to win the favor of Tokyo supreme headquarter by defeating Matsusaki so she can get quick promotion. The woman get the present postion by slander another big spy and even traped him to death in the plot……You may not aware of these, doctor.”

Sasaki the doctor stared at the pair of clever big bright eyes of HongYuan under the white cap surprisingly. He had it in mind: “This is not a simple minded one that he should know the relation between different tribes of Japanese spy! No doubt he should be the CaoHongYuan who Umemura hunted everywhere with the photo. Today he should visit me in the disguise of ZhuGuangYuan. It’s a fortune to meet him…… Sasaki nodded his head to say at this:


The analysis of Mr.Zhu might be right. But every day I work in my laborartory with several doors in between from the secular world. Thought I heard something of the inner struggle in the Japanese spy groups I know nothing in detail. For I never probe into that shameful things. If Mr.Zhu should mention them today then please say it directly.”

When Mrs.Miao interpreted HongYuan’s words HongYuan cut in directly.

“Now, we should save out professor Miao and maintain your North China branch selling as well as save your excellency. Of course Mrs.Miao, me and even Matsusaki are included in the rescue. At this HongYuan narrowed his eyes and smiled at Sasaki the doctor. He showed his purity and simple tinge of youth in the smile. “I have a superficial idea to prove. That’s to let Matsusaki know his present situation as well as your brother. We should make them take care. We should make them angry and fight back to defeat Umemra’s plan which is about to be achieved. Doctor, only you can realized it for no one else could meet Matsusaki and your brother……

Hearing the interpretation of Mrs.Miao Sasaki the doctor frowned instantely and nodded his head to say:

“I said something to the Matsusaki’s, but its of no use……

Mrs.Miao cut in as soon as HongYuan want to start talking:

“Mr.Sasaki, it’s still inmature when you went to meet Matsusaki last time. From the message by professor Miao we can tell that Umemura get nothing from his mouth. He especially mentioned Umemura had forced him to admit Matsusaki’s involvement. Now if you take the message to meet Matsusaki I believe……” Mrs.Miao slightly took a sigh at this. She pointed HongYuan then herself to add in emphasis: “Matsusaki would be very angry by the time! Mr.Zhu had predicted the reason why Matsusaki did not willing to help professor Miao out lays in that he want to hide a card in his sleeve. He’s afraid that professor Miao had confessed something to his disadvantage under the corporal punishment. So he want to wait and see. Now thirteen days had past since professor Miao’s arrest. The professor’s message indicated that Umemrua got nothing…… So this time when you go for Matsusaki again and present the message to him his attitude would be different to your former visit.
Mr Sasaki, think it over please. Is that the case!”

HongYuan saw there’s no quick response from Sasaki then he contimued Mrs. Miao’s topic:

“Doctor, you know the sharp contradiction between Sasaki the doctor and Umemura. They are deadly enemy to each other. For sure Matsusaki was plotting to defeat Umemura too! Maybe he have arranged already…… if you present the message to Matsusaki now I can estimate he would take effective measures to cope. At least professor Miao could be rescued out…… Further more there’s a dog under Umemura called BaiShiWu. I don’t know whether you’d ever heard about him. He knew the daughter of professor Miao whose name’s MiaoHong. And it is him who made use of every possible way in the information service of Umemura. Among the imformation he supplied are the situation of the north China medical branch selling. If you went to see Matsusaki you could propose for him to arrest BaiShiWu first. By this way you could not only sever one arm of Umemura but also gather from his mouth the conspiracy of Umemura herself……


Analysis: The inner struggle in the enemy clique was exquisitely made use of by HongYuan. Matsaki and Umemura do have common gaol the their spy service to Japan but their individual gaol prevailed everything elso. The greediness to get quick promotion made them fight against each other fiercely in ignorant of the common gaol. So just as what I said in the previous chapter the ‘unimportant life’ of professor Miao became so important to Matsusaki in prevent of his confession.

446楼

听到这里,佐佐木面容面容严峻地打断了鸿远的话:

“你们二位的意见我明白了。为了救出我的朋友苗振宇,我不惜个人和任何牺牲,包括我的生命。只是,人的尊严比生命还重要中国有句古话:‘士可杀,不可辱’我觉得受辱比死还痛苦……因此,我不向松崎之流甚至我的哥哥在内,向他们卑躬屈膝地去乞求帮助。……因为没有救出我的朋友,我的心比他在牢里还痛苦……”说到这儿,佐佐木的眼睛潮湿了,沉痛地扭过头去。停了会儿,他扭过头来继续说,“假如你们认为有苗桑的这封信,松崎的态度会有变化,不再对我兜圈子、拿架子那么,我愿意去试一试。我也知道有个姓白的中国人,投在梅村手下,做了不少坏事。我真为这种没有人格的卑鄙小人感到可耻!朱先生,你认识这个人吧?听说就是他把你出卖给梅村的……嗯,我看见过你的照片你不叫朱光年,你叫曹鸿远……”

听到这里,苗夫人有点儿吃惊。吃惊的倒不是怕佐佐木认出了日本特务正在大力缉拿的曹鸿远,而是惊讶这位博士先生还有一副如此锐利的眼光他只看过一次鸿远的照片,见面后竟立刻把他的真人认了出来。于是,苗夫人迅速把佐佐木的话翻译给鸿远听。

鸿远立刻爽朗地笑起来,又一次握住佐佐木的手:

博士,您这双经常察看细菌的精细的眼睛,见了我这个六尺高的人,当然一看就清楚了!不错,我就是那个梅村到处追捕的曹鸿远。我冒昧的来看望您,也给您带来危险,我很抱歉和不安。但现在情况紧急,为了挽救苗教授的生命,所以不得不亲自来拜见您。请原谅!”

听罢鸿远的话,佐佐木也用力握住了鸿远的手说:

“曹先生,当梅村拿着您的照片问到我认识不认识您的时候,我就知道您是个什么人,我就喜欢您这个中国青年了!……恕我冒昧问一句,您是共产党员、八路军么?”

鸿远微笑着,并不直接回答他的问话:

“佐佐木博士,我也是从了解您那天起,就深深地喜欢、深深地敬佩您这位日本朋友了!现在,在中国广大的土地上,千千万万的中国人民正在遭受日本帝国主义的屠杀、奸淫、抢掠……战争还在残酷地继续着。您的哥哥正在指挥华北的侵略战争,正在干着屠杀中国人民的罪恶行径;而您,能反对这种不义的战争,您正在努力帮助中国人民做种种好事包括你和苗教授从事的研究工作。所以,不仅我感谢您,中国人民—包括共产党、八路军也是感谢您的!将来,战争结束后中日战争虽然是持久战,但总有一天会结束的中日两国人民还会友好地往来。博士,您一定知道中国大诗人李白和贵国的晁衡曾经有过很深的友情吧?”

“‘日本晁卿辞帝都,征帆一片绕蓬壶。明月不归沉碧海,白云愁色满苍梧。’这是李白在晁衡回国时,听信传闻,以为他半路死了,写诗怀念他。可是后来,晁衡不是又返回贵国了么?”佐佐木念了李白的诗,激动地说,“我时常读这首诗……曹先生,我盼望这一天早一点到来!”

苗夫人看两人谈得那么投机,使她几乎翻译不过来了。她也兴奋得两颊绯红,笑着对佐佐木说:

“你和曹先生把怎样去找松崎的事,再仔细地研究一下好吧?时间不早了,我们不宜呆得太久。你说是么?”

“对,对!嫂夫人说得对极了!”佐佐木忽然象孩子般,对苗夫人频频点着他那戴着白布帽子的脑袋,站起身又一次握住鸿远的手:“有你们来救我的朋友,我也有了信心我们有希望和苗桑欢聚一堂了……”

说着,三个人忍不住相视而笑。




第六十九章

上午十点钟了,白士吾还躺在席梦思床上睡懒觉。忽然,屋门外传来一个娇滴滴的声音:

“小白起来了么?”

朦胧中,听到这熟悉的声音,白士吾象弹簧人似的,蹭地蹦下床来。一边揉眼、掠头发,一边答道:

“梅村小姐,您来了!我刚要起床。您不嫌脏,请进屋里坐……要不,在外面沙发上等我一下,我换好衣服就来……”

“瞧你这个懒鬼还做大事业呢……一睡睡到太阳晒屁股还不起床!”梅村穿着翻毛貂皮大衣,带着貂皮手套,推开屋门,袅袅婷婷地走到白士吾的卧榻边,搬把椅子坐下了。

447楼

白士吾披着件紫红缎子棉睡衣,也不敢去洗脸,坐在床边小声问:

“您突然大驾光临,有什么紧要事情?”

梅村站起身,突兀地在白士吾发青的脸颊上吻了一下,紧紧搂住他的脖子,小声说:

“有点急事要跟你商量苗振宇的事情闹大了!东京都知道了。昨天,那个老松崎还向咱们要开了人……所以得赶快想办法处理好这件事……”

白士吾愣愣地望着又坐回到椅子上的梅村。这时,她已把大衣脱掉,露出淡蓝色镶着精美花边的锦缎绣花旗袍。梅村见白士吾望着她不说话,又说道:

“这案子都是听了你的报告,才办成了这个样儿您总是说苗振宇跟鸿远有关系,说他替共产党、八路军代买药品……可是,你清楚,这苗老头硬的很,动力多厉害的刑,他也不承认。再说那个曹鸿远,除了裕丰药房的一个司药承认看见过他,说他到过裕丰药房之外;其他人,包括枪毙了的华兴,谁也不承认认识他……你看,现在,这盘棋该怎么下好?”

平常,梅村很少到白士吾家里来,更很少这么一本正经地向白士吾介绍情况其实,这些情况白士吾都早已知道。只是,为什么梅村今天这么激动?为什么急匆匆地来找他?莫非东京方面真的出了什么事情?……梅村说话向来真真假假,难以相信。因此,白士吾猜不透真实原因,只怔怔地看着梅村不答话。半天,他才頴悟了似的趴在梅村耳边说:

“依我看,赶快销赃灭迹趁早把这些家伙们全……”白士吾用手向自己的脖子上一抹,嘴角闪过一丝狞笑,“既然这些家伙都不想活,干脆送他们见阎王爷去算了。”

“看你这小子说得多轻巧!”梅村津子款款一笑,“那苗老头是佐佐木正义的好朋友,佐佐木正义的哥哥是什么人?难道你不知道!”

“当然知道!可是,几个中国人就算是苗振宇那样有点来历的中国人,杀他千儿八百的算个什么!咱们特遣组杀的中国人头串成糖葫芦,够全北平人吃的啦!”

梅村用高跟皮鞋的鞋跟踢了白士吾的脚丫一下,眉毛挑的高高得:

“小白,我说你是个雏儿,你还真是个没长全毛的小玩意儿。干咱们这行的,哪能够不处处留神,多长十个八个心眼儿……今天跟你商量事儿,我没有把你叫去,却自个儿大冷天跑来了,为的就是除你我之外谁也不知道这件事。我现在当然想干掉这几个为八路买药的中国人,可怎么个干法,得动动脑经,不能叫他们抓住把柄,不能叫他们看出是我梅村把他们杀了……你还不知道吧?佐佐木正义又去找了老松崎。松崎这几天对我的行动更加注意了。不干掉这家伙,我梅村的日子不好过!”

“佐佐木正义又找到了松崎?……那还不是为救姓苗的老家伙。可梅村小姐,那个‘他们’是谁呢?”

梅村用手指头在白士吾额头上用力戳了一下,笑道:

“别装糊涂了!松崎那头老狗熊,联合了那位最高指挥官,恨不得一口吃掉我。你还不知道,昨个夜里我已经得到可靠消息:他们在东京大本营那儿告了我的状……所以,必须立即干掉苗振宇!还不能露出是咱们干的要借别人的刀。……”

“怎么借刀?”

“咱们公开放出苗振宇,半路上叫‘游击队’给截击,趁乱打死老家伙。”

“那又该借用皇协军了?……”白士吾探出头来问。

“你认为任尚祖这个人怎样?”梅村忽然问起白士吾的好友来。

Hearing this Sasaki the doctor interrupted in solemn look:

“I can understand your proposal. I won’t grudge anything including my life to save my friend—professor Miao. But dignity values more than life itself. There’s ancient Chinese saying: ‘You can kill me but not shame me.’ I feel more tortured in the shame……So I did not beg those like Matsusaki for help not even my brother Sasaki the commander. I won’t bent for their help……My heart aches more than professor Miao does in the jail for my incapability in the rescue……”Mentioning this Sasaki the doctor’s eyes wetted and turned his head away. A while later he turned his head back to continue: “If you think the message can change the attitude of Sasaki the doctor and he could give up the round about way as well as the conceited manner I’m willing to have a try. I also know there’s a BaiShiWu who works under Umemura and had done many evil things. I really feel shame for the degraded rat who has no dignity of man. Mr.Zhu, do you know this rat? I heard it him who sold you to Umemura……Yes, I had seen your photo before. You’re not ZhuGuangNian, you’re CaoHongYuan………

Mrs.Miao was surprised at it She did not surprise that Sasaki the doctor recognized HongYuan who Umemra was hunting. She supprised that Sasaki the doctor should have such sharp detection—he only saw the photo of CaoHongYuan once while the doctor can recognize him at once! So, Mrs Miao interpreted Sasaki’s words instantly:

HongYuan laughed brightly and shook the hands of Sasaki the doctor again.


“Doctor, your eyes were born to be accustomered to detect bacterias for sure you can recognize a man in tall built like me instantly. Yes, I am the CaoHongYuan for whom Umemura was hunting. I’m so sorry for my abrupt visit may create danger for you. But its so urgent now I have to do so to save professor Miao. Forgive me please!”

Hearing what HongYuan said Sasaki the doctor also held tight the hand of him.

“Mr.Cao, the time Umemura showed your photo and inquired if I know you I started to favor you Chinese young man……Forgive my abruptness to ask: are your communist party member and Eight Routes Army man?”

HongYuan smiled and shun a direct answer:

“Doctor I also liked you very much and respected you the first time I heard about you as a Japanese friend! Now on the vast land of China millions of Chinese people are suffering from the slaughter, robbery and rape by the Japanese militarists…… The brutal war still lasts in the progressive tense. Your brother is commanding the invasion war in North China now and they are committing the crime in the slaughter. But you not only protest against the war but also tried your best to help Chinese people with all the good deeds including the joint establishment of your research institude with professor Miao. I appreciate you very much so does the communist party of China and the Eight Routes Army. In the future when the war end the people of Japan and the people of China will communicate with each other friendly. The war will end for sure though its long lasting. Doctor, you must have heard that there had been very good friendship bwteen Chinese peot LiBai and Abeno Nakamaro of Japan.”

“My friend CaoHeng from Japan,

Departed our imperial city of ChangAn.

His sailing boat circle around the reeds,

Sunk in the ocean the bright star with no homeland to meets.

White clouds in the wonder,


And my worry hanging full in the sky on the trees.

This poem was written by LiBai—a great peot in Tang Dynasty—in memory of his Japanese friend Abeno Nakamaro when the poet heard of the later’s peril on the ocean. But didn’t Abeno Nakamaro return home later?” Sasaki the doctor recited LiBai’s poem and said excitedly:“I often read this peom and I hope the peace day will come soon.

The two talked so congenially that Mrs.Miao almost couldn’t catch up in the interpretation. She flushed and smiled to Sasaki the doctor in the express:

“You’d better further discuss as to how can find out a way to meet Matsusaki carefully for its already late in the day and we couldn’t stay much longer. Right?”

“Yes, madam, accurately!” Suddenly Sasaki the doctor behaved like a child. He constantly nodded his head under the white cap to Mrs.Miao and stood up to held the hand of HongYuan another time:

“I have confidence now that you come to save my friend. We have hope to gather together with Mr. Miao again…….”

The three smiled to one another respectively in the talking.

Its ten o’clock in the morning and BaiShiWu still lied on his bed sleeping. Suddenly a pretty sweet voice spread in from outside:

“Are you up? Little Bai.”

BaiShiWu dimly heard the voice then jumped off his bed like a spring. He rubbed his eyes, smoothed his hair and answered in the mean time:

“It’s you! Umemura. I’m about to be up. Come in please if you do not mind the disorder…… or you may wait a moment on the sofa outside. I’ll be there a moment later when changed my clothes……

“Look! you lazy man. How can you do a great job when you sleep everyday utill the sun shines on your bed! ”Umemura was still in her mink coat and had her hands in mink gloves. She pushed the door open and walked in a graceful manner to the bed of BaiShiWu then moved a chair there to sit on.



BaiShiWu was in his purple colored pajama. He dare not go to wash his face but sat on the bed edge to ask in low voice:

“Is there anything urgent by this emergent visit?”

449楼


Umemura stood up to hashly kiss on the dark blue face of BaiShiWu and hugged his neck tightly to say in low voice:

“I do have something urgent to consult you. The incident of MiaoZhenYu made a real noise! The Tokyo headquarter should be informed! Yesterday the old Matsusaki should demand him from us……So we had to think out a way to cope well……


BaiShiWu stared blankly at Umemura who sat herself back on the chair. By this time she had took off the overcoat and showed her light blue brocade cheogonsam in flower with delicate lace. Umemura perceived the manner of BaiShiWu then added:

“It’s all because of your report that the case should be carried on like this. You insisted that MiaoZhenYu had connection with HongYuan and he sold medicine to the communist party in the Eight Routes Army……But you should know the old Miao’s a hard nut to crack. He did not admit it how hard the corporal punishment applied. As for the CaHongYuan, except for an apprentice in YuFeng pharmacy admitted an encounter in the shop no one else ever acknowleged acquaintance including HuaXing who had been shot by us……How shall we cope now? I’d like your idea.”

Umemura seldom paid her visit to the house of BaiShiWu and less she ever explained anything in such a detail to him. In fact Bai had been informed with all these before hand. But why Umemura should be in such an excitement today? Why should she pay this visit so urgently? Is there anything actually happened in Tokyo? ……Umemura sometimes told truth sometimes told lies so who knew? BaiShiWu couldn’t get the truth and he only stayed there stared blanky at Umemura without any words. After a long while he murmured to the ear of Umemura as if in a sudden realization.

I think we’d better extinguish all the evidence and put all of those imprisoned to……”BaiShiWu smiled a grim smile and slipped his hand quickly in front of his neck to sign, “If they all do not want to live put them to death then.”

“You childish thing take it too easy!” Umemura smiled broadly, “Don’t you know the old Miao’s a friend of Sasaki the doctor while the doctor’s brother…… You ever know who his brother is!”

Of course, I know. But its only several Chinese people. Its nothing to kill a thousand Chinese men even those like MiaoZhenYu who has some background. If we string the heads of Chinese killed by our task group it would be enough to feed all the people in BeiPing.

Umemura kicked the foot of Bai hardly with her high heeled shoe her eyebrows up rose.

“Little Bai, you childish thing’s really immature! Can people in our line take care of nothing? We should be careful everywhere……Today I should come here specially to consult you in person in spite of the cold, its all because that I want no one else know it except you. Of course I want to get rid of those Chinese who sold medicine to the Eight Routes Army. But I have to think how to. We can not leave behind any clue to let people see it’s Umemura who killed them…… You may not know that Sasaki the doctor had met Matsusaki again. Matsusaki took more care about us these days. I can’t live well if the old guy are not be removed!”

“Sasaki the doctor had found Matsusaki!……That should be for the rescue of professor Miao. But Umemura whom did your ‘people’ refer to? ”


Umemura poked the forehead of Bai hardly with her finger, then smiled to say:

“Don’t pretend that you’re ignorant of it! The old ape of Matsusaki allied the supreme commander. He only hates that he can’t sallow us once and for all. Don’t you know I got an imformation last night that they had indicted us to Tokyo supreme headquarter…… so we had to get rid of professor Miao as soon as possible! Further more we can’t left any sign that it is done by us. We had to use other hands!……

“How to borrow?”

“We set MiaoZhenYu free openly then let the ‘guerrila force’ assault him half way to kill the man in disorder.”

“So we have to make use of JARR force another time!”BaiShiWu probed his head out to inquire.

“What do you think of RengShangZu?” The friend of BaiShiWu suddenly brought to the mind of Umemura.

Analysis: The decayedBaiShiWu should think out a way more evil than Umemura herself. The Japanese woman kicked him so hard but it does not indicate she did not like the idea. It only indicate that she’s much more experienced viper. Bai’s disgusting and shameful in mentioning the slaughter for he himself happened to be a Chinese man. But here the author characterized the calmful Umemura to be an even worse role. So the senseless words shit by BaiShiWu appears to be less poisonous in comparasion.

450楼

“我看他忠于日本皇军,忠于大东亚圣战。和我一个样死心塌地!”

“可是,我听说,他跟松崎有过来往。”

白士吾忍不住笑了:

“松崎不也是天皇陛下的股肱之臣嘛!他对我说过,松崎拉过他,想叫他当北平宪兵司令部的情报员。他因为跟我知心,才不愿意给松崎干……他跟我是莫逆之交,什么事儿都不瞒我。我看这个人是信得过的。”

“你认识钟怀这个人么?他是十二团的团长。”

“我看,您对这位年轻的团长很垂青,怎么又问起我来了?”

“别瞎扯!干咱们这行的,对什么人也信任,也不信任。……小白,我还得警告你,你的行踪可得注意松崎那老家伙不是好惹的!你一个人别到处瞎乱跑。要多提防宪兵司令部那伙人……皇协军的人倒是可以利用。”

说着,梅村站起身对着镜子梳了梳卷发,又涂了点口红。然后,转过身看白士吾站在穿衣镜旁,也斜着眼睛盯着她看个不停,就歪过脑袋露出一副媚笑:

“小白,我还漂亮吧?听说,任尚祖给你介绍了一个漂亮女朋友,是真的么?”

白士吾吃了一惊。怎么,这件事也叫这个女妖精知道了?……

“给我介绍女朋友的人多呢。可有你,我谁也不要。你一个人我还伺候不过来呢,哪有闲心再找别人。”

“好,不谈这些了。”梅村仍坐回椅子上,小声对白士吾说,“目前,共产党、八路军在华北后方活动得挺厉害根据地越搞越大,游击战越打越凶……为了配合军事上的围剿,更为了除掉老松崎这个心腹之患,在城市里咱们就得加紧搜捕镇压这些亲共分子!现在苗振宇这件事,我看必须这么办你过来,我跟你说……”

白士吾心里早就有些痒痒,趁势一下子斜倒在梅村怀里,两眼直勾勾地盯着她的脸……听到最后,梅村推了白士吾一下,叫他起来,然后,咯咯地笑着,提高了声音:

“要快下手!就在明后天

白士吾频频点头。愣了一下,猛地用双臂抱起梅村,把她扔到自己的床上,喘吁吁地说:

“过去,都是我在你的床上今儿个,你也在我的床上玩一玩!”

……

下午,白士吾正要带着两个人去找任尚祖他最近升了皇协军司令魏登榜的副官,经常住在北平城里。还没动身,办公室里的电话铃响了。

“喂!谁?是你尚祖!我正要去找你……噢,噢……我明白啦!那我就自己去……吃饭、喝酒?那不必了。……好,好!盛情难却,我六点钟一定到。”



五点半钟,白士吾一个人走到特遣组的大门口,坐上他的包月车,直奔任尚祖约他去的地方东单苏州胡同而去。到了一座红漆小门的住宅前,任尚祖穿着一套整齐的皇协军军服,戴着大盖帽,正站在街门口等他。两人手拉手,一同往院里走去的时候,任尚祖笑嘻嘻地说:

“罗小姐在这儿等着你呢!她对你还真有点儿意思……”

白士吾拍拍大衣上的尘土,小声说:

“咱们先到一个僻静地方谈点要紧事。回头再见罗小姐她在这儿等我么?大哥,那太感激你了!”

任尚祖没有领白士吾走进灯火辉煌的正房,却把他领到一间厢房里。两个人关好屋门,摸着黑说起话来。

“尚祖大哥,梅村小姐给了你一个重要差事?我能干什么?”

“没问题。只要把苗振宇……”白士吾贴在任尚祖的耳边低声说了几分钟。

任尚祖迟疑了一阵慢吞吞地说:

“特遣组杀人是常事。干嘛费这么大劲,还要把他们弄到城外去杀掉?”

“咱们俩是知心朋友,我都告诉你苗教授不是一般的老百姓,他是咱们最高指挥官兄弟的好朋友,他开的那个药店还是松崎特务机关张的保证人。放了这个人,绝对不行;杀了这个人,梅村又怕最高指挥官跟松崎三郎找她的毛病,还怕社会舆论……所以她才想出这个金蝉脱壳巧连环的主意。大哥,你明白了么?”

“唔,是这样儿……”任尚祖沉吟一下,“总这么装着抗日游击队干这个那个的,有什么好处?我还是不明白梅村小姐的意图。”

“当然有好处!我告诉你,你可千万别往外说这都是梅村为了整掉老松崎出的点子……她还要上大本营去告他他这个负责北平治安的宪兵司令,总叫抗日的八路军、游击队在北平城里横冲直撞她要叫老松崎吃不了兜着走。”

“可这,还得去找我们皇协军那位魏司令来调动军队吧?”

“当然啦。我看魏司令还得调动钟怀团长跟你去执行这个任务。”

“唔,什么时候动手?我好做准备,等候你们的命令。”

“暂定明天上午,也许是后天。你听我的电话好了。”

“除了你的电话以外,我还听谁的电话?都有什么人知道这件事?还有谁指挥这件事?”任尚祖仔细询问着。

“除了听我的电话,你就听梅村的。还有她那位机要秘书木村的。除了我们三个人,你可谁的命令也甭听!”

“好,我一定尽力去办。不过,还得问一句,这几个要杀的人,我都不认识。到时候,向什么目标开枪呢?”

白士吾笑着,捏住任尚祖的手:

苗振宇坐在佐佐木的汽车里,你们到时候,派辆汽车跟在他们后头……然后……”白士吾的声音又放低了。

“行,我明白了。现在,该去看看你那位日思夜想的罗小姐了吧她也许已经等烦了。”

“对,尚祖,这件事全仗你成全啦!”

“你不怕你那位梅村小姐吃醋么?”

“她现在很忙正忙着成立华北的各种反共组织。成立什么新民会,顾不上管我了。我看透了这个妖精反正她玩我,我也玩她!……走,咱们快看看密斯罗去。”

说着,任尚祖打开厢房门,领着白士吾直奔北上房,却不见罗小姐的踪影。白士吾急了:

“怎么?她到哪儿去了?”

“小白,等一下,我去找找看她也许到后院张太太家串门去了。”说着,任尚祖扔下白士吾,出了屋门,走过一个穿堂门进到里院去。不一会儿,他又回到屋里,向坐在屋角、心神不宁的白士吾说,“罗小姐的母亲管她很严。等了你一会儿,见你总不过来,她回家吃饭去了。小白,这可真对不起起你……”

白士吾掏出手绢用力擤了一下鼻子,皱着眉头,说:

“见这位小姐真比见九天仙女下凡还难!……既然这样,我回去了。”

“你就在这里吃饭吧,咱哥俩好好痛饮几杯。”

“不吃饭了,我得走。一会儿,梅村还叫我派人把乔国玉护送上火车站去,叫他赶快离开北平呢。”

“干么倒叫他赶快离开北平?”任尚祖小声在白士吾耳边问。

“梅村这浪娘们鬼花招多着呢。还不是怕乔国玉给她泄密。尚祖,后天,我想亲自到罗小姐家里去一趟,亲自向她母亲提亲你知道我为什么这么喜欢她?因为,因为她长得象我那个失去的柳明。……噢,前些天在保定我还见了她呢。可惜……唉,不说了。尚祖,别忘了明天的重要任务。”

“好,明天我一天不出屋,专等你的电话。”

两个人说着来到大门口外,任尚祖目送白士吾坐上带棉篷的三轮车,一直到车子消失在胡同口,才转身走进自己家里,把两扇门紧紧关上。

刚刚吃过晚饭,佐佐木家的电话铃响了,苗夫人拿起话筒一听,心里立刻紧张起来电话里是曹鸿远的声音,说有个急病人恳求博士给诊治。万望博士答应,以便及时把病人送到博士家里。

苗夫人听罢,用微微发抖的声音回答:

“请等一下,我去问问博士,看他是不是有功夫……”

苗夫人望望站在电话傍边的佐佐木,放下听筒,把佐佐木拉到电话稍远的地方,小声说:
