MiaoHong did not pay attention to their conversation instead she was picking up wild flowers in different color by the river, in the mean time she talked to LiuMing in low voice:

“Sister XiangLan would get married tomorrow. Let’s weave a beautiful garland for her to wear on head.”

LiuMing paid no attention to this she continued her talk with XiangLan who was bending to reap the grass:

“Sister Lan. Why should you get married so early in such a chaotic year? You are only 18 years old and you’ve lost your father. How your mother need you to help her live through……”

XiangLan understand that LiuMing said this sincerely, so she answered melancholy in low voice:

“It is all because of the chaotic situation that my mother worried my safety staying home. So she is willing to get me married early…… Sister Ming. I am truly sorry having to leave you.” As XiangLan said she stood up straight wiping off her tears with sleeve.

LiuMing stared at XiangLan a feeling for reluctance to part surged in her chest: later if we return to my grandma it would be difficult to meet my childhood friend.

“Then you go and get married! Didn’t you say that you developed affection with YongTai? Then I wish you two live together forever…… ”

XiangLan flushed and nodded, she thanked heartily for Liu’s blessing with regretful tears hanging on the cheek. LiuMing wiped of the tears with her white handkerchief.

The willow branches are dancing in the wind. The water in River YongDing flows silently. The village after the mid-day rest is all but cicada voice and the fragrance of flowers. Beside that there is the sound of reaping the grass with the sickle in XiangLan’s hand.

A unique garland of flowers had woven. MiaoHong hold the garland in her hand and stole her way to the back of XiangLan. Suddenly she laid the garland on the head of XiangLan.

XiangLan took a fright. She jumped up and turned around throwing back the garland to MiaoHong:

“You condemned naughty girl! What a trick you’ve made again!”

MiaoHong hold the garland in her hand looking at it time and again. She smelled the thick fragrance too.

“Tomorrow you would be a bride. I wove this garland for you. How beautiful it is. Put is on. It is prettier than a crown.” Then MiaoHong again forced the garland on XiangLan’s head.

XiangLan laughed and shun backing up her basket loaded with green grasses. She is running back home.

LiuMing stopped her by hand and took over her basket. She put it on her own back, made a frown to MiaoHong and said:

“Little Miao. Don’t be so naughty. She is so sorrowful and you are still so happy!”

MiaoHong understand that LiuMing is blaming her. She threw the flower garland into the river in anger and followed the other two with her mouth pout.

Suddenly someone cleared her voice and a crisp sound of singing flied into our ears.

“The beautiful bride fell in love with the young groom,

How many eyes throw their blessings at you two?

Happiness and joy like slights of warn sunlight, shining forever on your thatched house…… shining on your thatched house. ”

“You gossipy girl! What do you mean by thatched house?
……”XiangLan is illiterate and she did not fully understand the song. But she knew it is a song in blessing to her. Her heart was beating fast and her tender graceful face turned again into a rose in bloom:

“Little Miao. How can you make up a poem? It must be that GaoYongYa taught you……”

“Never talk about him. You don’t know how holy he is in my mind……”Before LiuMing could finish her words, MiaoHong covered her mouth with the hand. Suddenly Miao’s face turn into a red rose too.

                           第二章   


清晨,天阴沉沉的,象要下雨的样子。

一顶陈旧的小布轿,绣着凤凰、牡丹、红花绿叶的图案,在几个吹鼓手的前引下,吹吹打打地走上了卢沟桥。那雕刻在桥上的数不尽的石狮子,仿佛也带着惊喜的目光瞧着从它们身边走过的娶亲的人群。

小轿抬到小禹庄东头王永泰家门前停住了。他家没有院墙,只有一架丝瓜棚支在房前,算是一道门墙。小轿放在瓜棚下,吹鼓手被孩子们围着,在一片嘻嘻哈哈的喧笑声中,起劲地敲着大锣,鼓着腮帮子吹着唢呐,双手不停地擂着大鼓“冬冬冬”、“锵锵锵”、“呜哇呜哇”的响声,给娶亲的人家增添了异常欢乐的气氛。

王永泰家的小板门紧闭着。迎亲的三婶挨着瓜棚下的小轿,拍着板门,按着传统习惯,拉着长声喊道:

“新娘子来啦!吉时吉刻到啦!开开门吧!”

“冬冬冬”、“锵锵锵”的锣鼓声,“呜哇呜哇”的唢呐声,“看新娘子呀”的喊叫声,欢快地沸腾着,淹没了迎亲三婶的叫门声。

三婶看看吹鼓手们脸上、手上的汗珠,望望嬉笑着看热闹的孩子们,第二次拍着门板喊道:

“新年子来啦!吉时吉刻到啦!快开门吧!”

站在屋门里的王永泰,浑身火辣辣的,早就忍不住了。他伸手就要开门,被傍边一位老奶奶一把抓住,气喘吁吁地说:

“孩子,等会儿!这是有说道的呀!不叫第三回门,不到吉时吉刻,可不能开门呀!”

新郎王永泰二十三岁,身材魁伟,宽肩细腰,是个诚实健壮的小伙子。在长辛店机车修配厂当学徒。因为上下班总打小柳庄过,时常看见一个梳着大辫子、扎着红头绳的大姑娘,在路边的碾子傍,抱着碾棍推碾子。渐渐的,他看中了这个俊俏的大姑娘。王永泰的父亲王福来,老伴早死,就这一个儿子。便千方百计托人说妥了这头婚事。

花轿临门了。唢呐越吹越欢,锣鼓越敲越带劲。

永泰的心象小鹿似地乱蹦。香兰就在门外,只隔着一层门板多少日子了,他想着她,盼着她来,她可来了,就要进来了……香兰的眼里,仿佛也已经看见了永泰。想到就要和自己看中的、有情有意的小伙子过日子了,坐在花轿里的香兰,心也扑通扑通地激跳着……

三婶第三次拍着板门,高声喊道:

“吉时吉刻到喽!”

屋门立刻打开了。永泰已经看见花轿了。三婶刚要伸手掀开轿帘就在这人声笑闹、锣鼓喧天的顷刻间,突然,空中掠过一声惊人的呼啸,接着是一声霹雳般的巨响。冲天的火光,滚滚的硝烟腾空而起一颗炮弹在人群中爆炸了!

炮弹落在娶亲的王永泰家的门前。

柳明和苗虹跑到王家门外附近,正并肩向前挤着,想挨近花轿。突然在一阵狂风似的呼啸声中,她们俩的脊背上,都像被一根大木棍狠狠地顶撞了一下,刹那间身不由己地都跌倒在地上。当听到惊人的爆炸声后,她俩互相望望,发现对方的脸上,头发上,都已被尘土涂抹得面目全非,象个土人。两个姑娘的心此刻都惊惶地蹦跳起来这是怎么回事?怎么突然飞来炸弹?又是什么东西突然推倒在地上?……她们在地上愣怔了一会儿,再向王永泰家门前望去时,刚才吹吹打打、欢呼庆贺的人群都不见了,只有一个个倒在血泊中的人不知是死人还是活人,横七竖八倒在那顶破碎的花轿前。

炮声停止。

柳明一跃而起,踉踉跄跄跑向花轿香兰不见了。映入柳明眼帘的,只有一只惨白的胳臂;连在胳臂上的一只惨白的手里,还捏着一条大红绸子手帕。她心里一惊,正想向碎轿旁边寻找香兰时,有人拉了她一下,她抬眼一望,一个满脸尘土的男人对她说:

“新媳妇已经没救了,咱们快去刨出王家父子要紧!”

柳明拉了一下跟在她身边的苗虹,二人紧跟着这个陌生的男人,扑向已经倒坍的废墟。那个男人一边用双手奋力扒着高高低低象坟堆似的土坯,一边喊着:“王大叔,王兄弟,你们在哪儿呀?快起来!快起来呀!”

“王永泰,你在哪儿?快出来呀!……”柳明一边用手乱刨土堆,一边心慌意乱地跟着那个男人呼喊。苗虹也学着柳明的样子边刨土边喊叫。

废墟上一片沉寂,没有回声。

忽然,一阵哭喊声从村里涌了出来,倒在花轿边的死者、伤者的家属赶来了,一片呼儿喊娘的悲哭声,揪抓着柳明的心。但她顾不得多想,一心想帮助那个男人救出王家父子。这时,几个小伙子拿着铁铣镐头跑到王家的废墟上,他们正要抡镐刨土,那个满身满脸尘土的男人,发出了制止声:

23楼

In the earlymorning, the sky is cloudy as if the rain is coming.

A worn our sedan screened by cloth on which embroidered phoenix, peonies and the pattern ofother red flowers and green leaves, appeared on Bridge LouGou.It was guided by a few trumpeters and the small troop sounding all the way. The countless stone lions that engraved on the railings of Bridge LouGou seem tostare at the by passing fleet of wedding in astonishment.

The small sedan stopped at the door of WangYongTai’s whose house locates in the east of villageXiaoYu. There is no wall to enclose his yard, only a shed for growing towel gourd was set in the front and this managed to serve as a wall. The sedan stopped at the shed soon the trumpeters were enclosed by a pack of children. The group men were beating their gongs and blowing surnai vigorously among all the laughing and joking. And there were some never stopped beating the drums. The thundering of drums, the clangor of gongs and the blowing of surnai added rapturous atmosphere to the wedding ceremony.

The small wooden door of WangYongTai’s was shut there. The aunt who approached to welcome the bride stood by the shed and patted on the door. She called in a protracted voice according to the old tradition:

“The bride is coming! The propitious time arrived! Open the door please!”

The WangYongTaiinside the house had long being in urgency. He can’t wait to reach his hand forthe door. But a grandma by his side held back his hands and gasping out:

“Wait a moment boy! There is something mysterious here! Keep the door shut until she knocked the third time when the propitious moment came!”

WangYongTai aged23, he is tall and in strong built. He has broad shoulders and slender waist, a man of honest and healthy type. He works as an apprentice at ChangXinDian engine repair mill. The man passes village XiaoLiu on his way to and from the mill. There he frequently encountered this pigtailed and red string hair tied big girl who was at her work grinding the rice and corn with a roller. Gradually he had an attachment to the girl. WangYongTai is the only son of WangFuLai whose wife had died early. And the father made every effort to settle down the marriage for his son through the relations.

The sedan is in the approaching. The blew of Sounai and the beating of gangs sound louder and louder. The heart of YongTai beat fast like a rabbit in the chest. XiangLan stays just outside the door there is just a thin layer of door plate in between. So many days she is in his heart in his expect. Finally she come and she is joining him…….Respectively in the eyes of XiangLan YongTai now seems in view. Thinking of the incoming days when she would spend with her ideal and affectionate man she sits in the sedanwith her heart beat as fast as him……

The aunt knocked at the door a third time now, she shouted in her loud voice:

         “The propitious time arrived! It’sthe time now!”

       The door opened in a sudden and YongTai hadalready seen his bride. The moment when the aunt was about to uncover the curtain of the sedan, the moment when all the noise of human sound, drums and gongs were boiling there appeared a sharp whistle in the sky followed by the thunder of blast. Lightening, fire and dense smoke rose up in the sky. A bomb blasted in the crowd!

       The bomb just dropped in frontof YongTai’s house.

        LiuMing and Miao Hong are inthe approaching now. They are forcing their way forward in the crowd shoulder to shoulder and tried their best to near the sedan. In the surge of thunderlike whistle, they felt as if a stick beat heavily on their back. Suddenly they lost control of themselves and fell down on the ground. After the terrifying sound of blast the two girls looked at each other and discovered each other a muddy girl with dust all over the face and hair. Now their heart beat fast in astonishment. What’s happened and how come the blasting? What force pulled them down on the ground?
…… The two sat on ground for a moment blank minded. When they looked again at the front of WangYongTai’s house the happy joyous group just now disappeared in stead many bloody men laid disorderly on the ground not known dead or live.  

       The sound of blast ceased inthis way.

       LiuMing jumped up and crippled her way to find XiangLan, but she is not there. What she saw is only a pale arm and the paled colored hand on the arm still held tight a red silk handkerchief. She took a startle in the heart and the moment she wanted to find XiangLan by the smashed sedan someone dragged her away. Liu rose up to see a dusty facedman is talking to her:

“The bride is hopeless now.We’d better dug out the father and the son as soon as possible.”

LiuMing pulled up MiaoHongby her side and the two of them followed the strange man running for the destroyed house. The man tried his best to dig the tomb like earth piles indifferent height with his bare hand. In the mean time he shouted: “Uncle Wang,brother Wang, where are you now? Get up please! Please get up!”

“WangYongTai, where are you now? Get out please!……”LiuMing followed the shout while digging bare handed and disorder hearted. MiaoHong also took her example.

There came no answer andsilence prevailed there on the debris.

Suddenly a shower of cry surged out from the village the relatives of those died and injured came in arush. In sight of the crying and calling LiuMing’s heart broken. But she laid down all the other thoughts to concentrate on saving the father and the son. This time several young fellows arrived with their hoes and spades, the moment they was about to dig the dusty faced man stopped them.  

Analysis: The wedding turned to a funeral. The Jap targeted on the civilian and from the beginning the invasion lost all of the human sense in the same time broke the rules ofwar. The illusionary happy life was made a catastrophe—death, injuries and cry prevailthe wedding. It is neither a terrorist attack that behind the crime there is a strong force organized by a pack of inhuman political regime with animal like desires.

24楼

“乡亲们,人埋在土里边,抡镐可不成。咱们大伙还是用手刨吧!”
    人多了,不一会儿,王家父子俩被从土堆里刨了出来。他们都已经昏迷过去,直挺挺地躺在破碎的瓜棚下。
    柳明把他们嘴里的土掏干净,要给他们作人工呼吸。那个刨土的男人也自告奋勇来帮助柳明。他的大手和柳明一样灵巧,不过比她更矫健。柳明心里有些惊异,也有些纳闷:这是个什么人呢?……刚才,象木棍一样猛地把她和苗虹推倒的,莫非就是他?……柳明一下一下地推动着昏迷者,一边向旁边的人望了一眼。
王永泰先醒过来了,翻身坐了起来。他茫然四顾,却好像什么也没有看见。当他的目光停留在那顶破碎的花轿上时,他才真的苏醒过来,一个猛子跳起身来扑向花轿。炸毁了的花轿,只有几根木杆杂乱地横在地上,片片红红绿绿的碎布在风中颤抖。他搜寻着,当他的眼睛看到了那只白色的断臂,和那断臂手中捏着的红绸手帕时,他纵身扑了过去,一下子把断臂紧紧抱在怀里,紧紧地抱住。好像香兰还活着,这只惨白的手臂就是他心爱的姑娘……
    柳明看见这情景,难过得伏在苗虹的肩上抽泣。苗虹也眼泪汪汪的。
    “明姐,这是怎么回事?哪儿打来的炮弹炸死了香兰姐和这么多人?你看见了么,那个迎亲的三婶,还有几个吹鼓手也炸死啦!……”
    柳明紧紧抱住苗虹。看见那么多老乡嚎啕哭自己死去的亲人,看见王永泰紧紧抱住香兰的断臂那种痴呆失神的样子,终于放声大哭,泪如雨下。
    “二位小姐,您们跟这老王家的新娘子认识,对不对?”
    柳明从苗虹的肩上抬起头来。一个年轻英俊的小伙子站在她们身边,呵,这不就是刚才替昏迷者做人工呼吸的那个男人么!那会儿太紧张,看不清他的面貌。这会儿,也许他擦了脸,去掉了身上的尘土,好像变了一个人—变成一个高高的俊气的大学生。柳明立刻想到自己和苗虹还是满身满脸的尘土,有点不好意思了,立刻止住了哭泣。苗虹却满不在乎地回答那个人:
    “先生,您真是个好人!要不是您想到先去抢救王永泰父子,也许他们会叫土给憋死啦。……嗖,炮弹飞来的时候,我和明姐好像有人把我们一下子推倒在地上,这个人就是您吧?您大概打过仗,知道在战场上怎么爬下来躲炮弹,是吗?”
柳明柔声补充:
    “谢谢您,救了王家父子,也救了我们……”
     那青年摇摇头,严肃地长吁了一口气,却说着别的:
    “很可能是日本人打出来的炮弹。最近两天,他们在卢沟桥一带不断进行军事演习,似乎在找岔儿进攻中国……二位小姐,你们贵姓?”
    “我叫苗虹—树苗的苗,长虹的虹。她叫柳明—柳树的柳,光明的明。她是北平医学院二年级的学生,我是学唱歌的。我们俩是好朋友。”


    “My folk men, there are men buried under you can’t use your hoes. Use your hand!”

          Many more people gathered and not long after the father and son were dug out. The two had already knocked unconscious, they lay straight under the destroyed towel gourd shed. LiuMing cleaned the earth in their mouths and prepared to do artificial respiration then the earth digging man volunteered to help her. The big hands of his are as nimble as LiuMing’s but they are much more robust. …… Liu pressed on the chest of Wang again and again in the mean time glanced at the surrounding figures.

          WangYongTai woke first then he sat up. He looked around as if seeing nothing. Not until his view stopped at the demolished sedan did he really woke up. He jumped up and rushed for the sedan. The sedan was blasted off with only several posts lay disorderly on the ground and the torn off cloth of red and green was shaking in the wind. He searched on until he saw the pale broken arm with a red silken handkerchief held tight in the hand. Wang grabbed for it and held it tight as if XiangLan were still living. And this pale broken arm had been his beloved girl’s.

          In sight of this, LiuMing couldn’t help weeping on the shoulder of MiaoHong and Miao also had tears in her eyes.

       “Sister Ming, what a thing it is? Where does the shell come from which killed sister XiangLan and so many people? Can’t you see that the aunt to welcome the bride and many trumpeters were also killed?……

        LiuMing hugged MiaoHong tight. She saw so many folk men cry loudly for their dead relatives, she saw WangYongTai held the broken arm of XiangLan dumfounded. She couldn’t help crying out and the tears showering like rain.

       “Hey! These two girls! You know the bride of the Wang’s family, aren’t you?”

        LiuMing raised up her head from the shoulder of MiaoHong. A handsome young fellow just stood by their side. My! It’s just the man who helped her do the artificial respiration a moment ago. In the intensive work then Liu couldn’t see his face clearly. At this moment he had washed his face and dusted off his clothes to change into a form of tall and handsome university student. LiuMing thought of the appearance of herself and MiaoHong. They are still in dusty. So she felt somewhat awkward and stopped crying. But MiaoHong did not mind it, she answered the young man:

       “You are a good man, sir. If you did not propose to save the father and the son first they could have been suffocated…… When the shell dropped down, there seems to be someone who pulled the two of us down suddenly. Should that man be you? You should have experienced war and know how to shade from shells, isn’t it? ”

LiuMing added up something in soft voice:

       “Thank you. You save the Wang’s and you saved us.”

The young fellow shook his head and took a long sigh in serious look. He said:

       “The shell may come from the Japanese Army. These days they are practicing a military drill somewhere nearby Bridge LuGou and may seeking an excuse to invade China inland……       The two of you! How should I call you?”

    “My name is MiaoHong and her name is LiuMing. She is a sophomore in BeiPing medical academy and I am learning singing. We are friends.”     

   

Analysis: The north China is in chaotic. It is big but not big enough to set up a desk never mention for a wedding procession. Can’t you say the shell attack is only an incidence? But I never believe in the excuse, for all men with science sense won’t believe without a careful target on the shell can make such a coincidence by itself. For the two naïve girls the tragic made them a sense what war is and how shall they co-operate. For they doomed fate it is only a beginning and far away from the end.

25楼

    不等柳明开口,苗虹又对这青年人呱呱地说起来:“先生,您贵姓?一定是您推倒了我们,救了我们吧?您怎么这么客气,不肯承认呢?告诉我们,我们会永远感激您……”
    那青年说他名叫曹鸿远。至于是不是他推倒了两位女士,他既不承认,也没否认。使得柳明对这个陌生人更加产生了一种钦敬感。
    “呀,瞧咱俩这模样!姐姐,咱们赶快回你姥姥家洗脸、换衣服去吧。两个土猴子多叫人笑—先生,呵,您说这是日本人打的,是怎么一回事?”
曹鸿远微微一笑,并且向两位女大学生谦恭地鞠了一躬,用低沉的声音说:
    “他们在军事演习中,借口丢失了一名日本兵,要求进入宛平城里搜查。我方没有答应,听说他们已经包围了宛平城。说不定形势会很紧张起来。他们打了第一炮,恐怕还会打第二炮、第三炮,你们还是离开这块地方好,赶快回城里去吧!”
    柳明和苗虹都忘了洗去脸上的尘土,聚精会神地听曹鸿远的叙述。这时一群老乡也围了过来,为首的就是刚从土里刨出来的王永泰的父亲王福来,他用大手一把紧攥住曹鸿远的胳臂,满脸泪水混合着满脸的尘土,喘着粗气大声说:
    “恩人,救命的恩人!请你留下个姓名吧!”
    “他叫曹鸿远,好像是个大学生……”不等曹鸿远本人说话,快嘴的苗虹先替他说了,“他还知道刚才炮弹爆炸的原因,叫他给咱们大伙儿多说说好吧?”
曹鸿远摇摇头,只轻声说:
    “一定是日本鬼子打来的炮。老乡亲们,快回家作点准备吧!不少人家都有伤亡,该料理料理后事……”说到这里,一扭头,看见仍然抱住惨白断臂的王永泰也站在他父亲身边,两眼直呆呆地瞪着曹鸿远,那样子很吓人。
    曹鸿远立刻从人群中走出来,来到王永泰身边,一双大而亮的眼睛紧紧盯着在他怀中的断臂上。
    “王兄弟,死的不是你媳妇一个人,心放宽点!以后咱们想法子报仇就是了。这只胳臂,你就放下它吧!”
    “报仇?”王永泰一双血红的眼睛仍盯在曹鸿远的脸上,好象他就是杀害香兰的仇人。
    “兄弟,中国人不是好欺负的。咱们一定要报仇!要报仇!”
    “报仇!报仇!……”不等曹鸿远说完,王永泰嚎叫般连声喊着。突然,他把香兰的断臂一扔,蹲在地上抱住脑袋呜呜地放声大哭起来。顿时,王福来,还有一些死了亲戚的人也都放声大哭。小禹庄沉浸在一片沉痛的哀号声中。
    柳明看呆了。又伏在苗虹的肩上低声啜泣起来。她的眼前闪过那个背着筐子、甩着鞭子的美丽身影,跳过一双灵活的大眼睛,把头上的花环羞答答地摘了下来的玫瑰花样的脸,以及脸上绽放开着的幸福的微笑……她刚才还活着啊!这个对未来、对人生、对幸福,正充满了美好憧憬的十八岁的姑娘—她的童年伙伴,一霎间,血肉横飞,消失了,从世界上永远消失了!多么不可思议,生和死竟如此地紧紧相连……忽然,她又想起那个陌生的男子,假如不是他靠近自己的身边,不是他在紧急中推倒了她和苗虹,也许她也和香兰一样,和其它死去的、受伤的乡亲一样消失了、残废了……她思绪沉重,又情思缭绕。当她抬起头来寻找曹鸿远时,那个陌生的青年人已经不见了,只有他对王永泰激愤地连喊着“要报仇”的声音,还在她耳际边回响。
    “曹—鸿—远……”柳明在心里默念着,“鸿雁的鸿,远大的远。这名字倒有意思!”

    Before LiuMing had a chance to speak, MiaoHong started up her gossip to the young fellow. She said: “Sir, how should we call you? It must be you who pulled us down and saved our lives, is that so? Don’t be so shy and keep silence. Tell us and we will appreciate it for ever……”  

         The young fellow said his name is CaoHongYuan, for the second question he neither admitted nor denied, which made LiuMing admire and respect him more.  

        “Sister, Look, how we are looked now. Hurry up to your grandma’s to wash our faces and have the clothes changed. Sir, does it deserve laughing to be two dusty monkeys? Would you please tell me why should you say that it is the Jap who fired the cannon?”

          CaoYuanHong smiled a little, he bowed before these two female university students and said in low voice:

        “The Jap made an excuse that one of their soldiers lost his way during the military drill and they want to march in WanPing for a search. But we turned it down. It is said that the Jap had already besieged WanPing. The situation may go even worse. They fired the first gunshot, the second and the third may follow. You’d better leave this place and turn back to the city as soon as possible.

         Both LiuMing and MiaoHong forgot about their dusty faces and concentrated on his talk. Then a group of folk men surrounded the lecturer, among them are the newly dug out WangFuLai, the father of WangYongTai. He grasped for the arm of CaoHongYuang, gasped out with his face a mixture of mud and tears:

        “Savor, savor! Please leave us your name!”

        “He is CaoHongYuan, may be a university student……”Before the young fellow had a chance the quick mouthed MiaoHong inserted in: “He did know why there should be a blast a moment ago, please let this Cao explain to us. Is this sound reasonable? ”

          Cao shook his head and only slightly mentioned:

         “It must be the Jap. My folk men! Please hurry home and make preparation. Many family suffered casualties and should arrange for funeral……” At this Cao turned his head, he saw that WangYongTai still held the pale white arm and stand by his father staring at him in an astonished look.   

        CaoHongYuan soon walked out of the crowd and stopped by the side of WangYongTai, his bright eyes staring at the broken arm held by Wang.

       “Brother Wang, your wife is not the only one that was killed. Don’t be too sorry. We can seek way to revenge later. Put it away then.”

       “Revenge?” Wang stared at Cao in the face with his bloody eyes as though he was the one who assassinated XiangLan.  

       “Brother, we Chinese are not so easy to be bullied! We shall revenge! We must take revenge!”   

       “Revenge! Revenge!……”Before Cao could finish WangYongTai, shouted out like howling. Suddenly he threw away the broken arm and squatted on the ground holding his head and crying loudly. Suddenly WangFuLai and all the relatives to the dead burst out crying. Village XiaoYu was sunken in the wailing.

        LiuMing was stunned. Again she laid her head on Miao’s shoulder and wept. A beautiful figure flashed by in her mind, the girl has big active eyes, threw her pigtail and bore a basket on her back. In the view of the mind, a rosary face appeared in taking off the flower garland from her head the face bloom with blessed smiles…… She is alive a moment ago. This girl of eighteen had been filled with beautiful longing towards life, future and happiness. This childhood fellow of her in flash of a second was blasted into pieces and disappeared from the world for ever! It is unimaginable, the life and death should be so near by each other…… Suddenly she thought of the young fellow too, if he had not been by side and pulled down the two, she should have been disappeared along with XiangLan and those who dead or been injured like those injured…… LiuMing is heavy with thoughts and circled by affection. The time she rose up her head to find CaoHongYuan, the fellow had already disappeared, only the swear words of “taking revenge” that he uttered to WangYongTai still echoes in her ears.

      “Cao—Hong—Yuan……”LiuMing weigh in her mind: “That is an ambitious name!”        


Analysis: The story mentioned River LiuTiao Incident which is famous in the history of national anti-Japanese war. The military government of Japan was not satisfied for the mere occupation of the three provinces in north-east China. The Japanese fascist regime would invade for resources, invade for slavery and invade for the dictatorship over the world. The Chinese people were put into destiny that they can neither deny the war nor make choice. The fate is forced not sought. So the bloody scene woke up they sense of revenge but not without propaganda. Further more the revenge can not be practical with the strength of individual nor with the strength of collective. Invasion is the behavior of a country as whole equally anti-invasion should also be the behavior of a county as whole.

                            第三章

    自从在小禹庄目睹了那悲惨的一幕,第二天,柳明和苗虹就急忙由舅舅、表兄们护卫着,绕道回到了北平城里各自家中。柳明刚一进家门,他家两那两间摆着一些破旧家具的阴暗小屋里,有个人正在等着她。这是个年青漂亮的大学生,白净的长脸上架着一副玳瑁眼镜,油量的分头梳得整整齐齐。上身雪白的绸子衬衫,下身灰色派力司西装裤,脚上是白**子和考究的白皮凉鞋。柳明一见他,先是愣了一下,接着向他点点头:

    “白士吾,你来了。”不等白士吾答话,又扭头对父母沉痛地说,“爸爸,妈,香兰姐昨天上午叫日本人的炮弹炸死啦—炸死在她结婚的花轿上……我和苗虹赶着给她去道喜,可是只看见她剩下的一只胳臂……”柳明说着,簌簌地滴下泪来。

    柳明妈,一个四十多岁胖胖的女人,听了女儿的话大吃一惊,一边抹着眼泪,一边顿着脚说:

    “唉呀,香兰死啦!看,这怎么说的!……我说你这不听话的丫头呀,放着现成的舒坦日子不过,偏要到乡下去散什么心!差点儿没把小命给散掉啦!……这炮声一响,可把你爹妈急坏啦!还有,白少爷,也急得直转磨儿—他听见你姥姥家那边炮响,就急忙赶到咱家来,一天两趟来打问你回家没有。这你们俩谈谈吧!我去给你们做饭去。”说着,柳明妈妈拐着两只缠过的小脚,到屋外小棚子里做饭去了。

    柳明的爸爸柳清泉对那个衣着阔绰的白士吾并不甚热情,见女儿回来了,拉着女儿问起卢沟桥那边的情况。柳明对白士吾浅浅一笑,扭过头对爸爸学着曹鸿远跟他们说过的话:日本人在卢沟桥一带军事演习,借口丢了一名日本兵,就向那一带开起炮来。父亲听了连声叹息,用瘦削的拳头向桌子上轻轻一击,叹道:

    “**无日了!唉,可耻可悲呀!孩子,**无日了呀!”

    柳明愣愣地望着父亲那悲哀的神色,刚刚向他学说王福来父子如何被埋在土里;自己和苗虹怎样被一个陌生人推倒才没有受害的情况,她的男友插进话来:

    “小柳,你受惊了吧?我真为你担心—我还不知道你去了卢沟桥那边呢。小柳,多危险!你一定挨在香兰的花轿旁边,万一出了事,那、那怎么得了呵!”白面少年说着,一双多情的眼睛,紧盯在柳明的脸上,是忧虑?是担心?是羡慕?那双眼睛闪烁着多少绵绵情意。

柳明不对父亲说话了,把头扭向白士吾。

    见白士吾这么关怀自己,柳明心里怦然颤动,低下头来,不安地摆弄着洁白的手绢:

    “小白,我知道你会惦记我—去看看姥姥,谁知道会碰到这种意外事。幸亏平安地回来了……”

白士吾一见柳明那温柔的带着几分少女娇羞妩媚的姿态,不知怎的,他也羞红了脸。怔怔地望了柳明一会儿,低声说:

    “咱们出去谈谈好么?我有些话对你说。”

    柳明望望坐在破藤椅子上闭目低声吟哦着什么的父亲说:

    “爸爸,我们出去一下。”又对围着围裙、一只手臂挎着买菜篮子的母亲说,“妈,我跟小白出去一下。”

    父亲没有睁眼抬头;母亲却喜欢地拍打着手掌说:

    “明儿,你们要出去?我正想给你们做点好吃的呢。白少爷,呆会儿回来,在家吃饭吧—我给您做您最爱吃的红焖肉,回家吃吧。”

    白士吾随便点点头,说不要做饭了,他要请柳明在外面吃。柳明对妈妈勉强笑笑,就和白士吾紧挨走出了门。

    走在僻静的小巷里,柳明心绪缭乱,默默地许久不出声。

    白士吾想握柳明的手,被她轻轻躲开了。小白那张清秀的脸,又是一红。

    “小柳,你怎么—这样?讨厌我啦?我可是可是日夜在想念着你呀!夜晚,躺在床上,一闭眼就看见你……”

    “小白,你怎么—这样?讨厌我啦?我可是可是日夜在想念着你呀!夜晚,躺在床上,一闭眼就看见你……”

    “小白,我知道你的感情—可是,我心里有好些难受的事,象压着一块铅板。”

    “为什么难受?是想—想我么?要不,咱们结婚吧,**日夜夜都在盼望着这个日子。”

    “去你的,”柳明又推开了白士吾伸过来的手臂,“东三省沦亡,战争已经扩展到华北了!你听不见卢沟桥那边大炮又响起来了么?结婚?我早就对你说过:大学不毕业,当不上主治医生,我决不结婚!”

    “那、那—你太狠心了!等着你大学毕业?这几年的日子可怎么过啊!亲爱的……你太、太那个冷静了……”

柳明迈着迟缓的步子,睨了白士吾一眼,沉思着什么,不再出声。

    白士吾一边走,一边不住扭过头去,望着身边那张又熟悉、又陌生、又十分迷人的脸,魂儿似乎出了窍,迷迷糊糊的,也不出声了。

    柳明的家离西单不远。时间不长,两人便走到北平繁华的西单大街上。突然,一幕惊人的景象,展现在他们的眼前:不知从哪里涌出的人流,正一队队、一群群,浩浩荡荡从他们眼前的马路上走过。人们高举着各色的标语旗帜,挥舞着铁锤似的拳头,声嘶力竭地呼喊着响亮的口号,在蓝天白云下,如此眩人眼目地闪耀在柳明的眼帘—

27楼

          The day after they witnessed the tragedy in village XiaoYu, LiuMing and MiaoHong were urgent to go back home through a round way in the guard of their uncles and cousins. As soon as LiuMing stepped into her home she encountered the one waiting for her in the dim two apartment’s house with little furniture. He is a young and graceful university student with a pair of turtle shell frame glasses on the fair and clean face. The oily hair was combed tidy. He wore white silk shirt and grey palace trousers and his foot was in white silk stockings and fine white leather sandal. At this sight, LiuMing stunned a little firstly then nodded to him and said:

        “You are here. BaiShiWu” before the student could respond with an answer LiuMing turned to talk to his parents gravely:

       “Mom and Dad, yesterday sister XiangLan was bombed dead by the Jap. She was blasted in her wedding sedan…… MiaoHong and I hurried there to bless her but what we could see is only her broken arm.” Liu rustle with tears in the retell.

          LiuMing’s mother is a fat woman over forty. She was astonished at the news, stamping her feet and said in tears:

        “What! XiangLan died? How it comes! …… You rebelling girl, how should you put off the comfortable life in the city and went to the country for a release? You almost lost your life there…… Do you know how you worried your parents on hearing the gunshot? Lord Bai also worried like ants. He heard the gunshot at your grandma’s and hurried here soon. He came here twice a day to inquire whether you are home or not. Then you talk to each other and I will go to cook for you.” At this LiuMing’s mother cripple on her small foot to the shed outside for cooking.

         LiuMing’s father LiuQingQuan is not quite enthusiastic towards the BaiWuShi who wear ostentatiously, but when he saw his daughter came back he drag on her for inquiry of situation at Bridge LouGou. LiuMing smiled at BaiShiWu slightly then she turned to her father and spoke to him the way CaoHongYuan had said: “The Jap was carrying on a military drill by Bridge LouGou, they gun fired the region in excuse that one of their soldiers gone missing. At this his father sighed repeatedly and knocked on the table slightly with his fist:

“The country will collapse soon! It’s a shame. It’s a tragedy! My daughter, the country will collapse at any time!”

LiuMing stared at her father’s grave look dumfounded. As soon as she mentioned how WangFuLai was dug out and she along with MiaoHong was pulled down by a stranger to be saved from the blast, her boy friend inserted in:

         “Little Liu, are you terrified? I really worry for you. I did not know you’d been to Bridge LuGou. How dangerous it is! You must be near by XiangLan’s sedan, what if something happened to you? How can it help?” The white face student stared at the face of LiuMing in the talking. His eyes are affectionate. Is it anxious, envy or worry? How deep is the affectionate in his blinking eyes?

         LiuMing stopped the talk to her father and turned to BaiShiWu. In sight of such concern from BaiShiWu, LiuMing’s heart beat fast, lowed down her head and play uneasily with her white handkerchief:

         “Little Bai, I know you will concern about me. Then you go to visit the grandma, who knows we could encounter such incident. Luckily we can come back safely……”

Whenever BaiShiWu saw LiuMing’s tender manner he also flush without conscious. He stared at LiuMing amazingly for a while, then spoke in low voice:

         “How about going out for a talk? I have something to talk to you!”

          LiuMing glanced at her father who sat on the worn cane chair murmuring and she said:

          “Dad, I’d like to go out for a while.” then she turned to her mother who was in her apron holding a basket in the hand and added: “Mom, I’d like to out for a while with little Bai.”

BaiShiWu nodded his head he said it unnecessary to prepare meal for them for they would eat out. LiuMing forced out a smile to mother then went out side by side with him.

Walking on the silent lane, LiuMing’s mind was all in a mess, she did not say anything for long.

           BaiShiWu wanted to hold her hand tight, but she shunned. The narrow handsome white face flushed again.

         “Little Liu. How can you behave like this? Do you turn sick of me? But I miss you day and night. When ever I shut my eyes at night you appear in my mind……”  

        “Little Bai, I know you have affection towards me. But I have something sorrowful in the heart like tinplate to press me hard.”  

         “Sorrow for what? Do you miss me? Then we get married soon? I am longing for it day and night.”

         “Get away soon” LiuMing pushed away his reaching out hands: “The three provinces in north—east China still sunk in the hands of the Jap and the war has been expended to north China. Did you hear the gunfire over the Bridge LouGouMarry? I had said it long before that before graduation, before I became an attending doctor I won get married.”

“But, but you are too hard hearted. You mean until your graduation? How can I live through these years then? Darling you are too cold hearted……”

         LiuMing was walking in steady steps she narrowed her eyes in meditation and never made a sound.

         BaiShiWu turned his head back while walking. He stared at the charming face familiar yet strange, soon he turned dizzy as if his spirit had lost. He did not make any sound too.

         LiuMing’s home locates not far away from XiDan. Soon they were walking on the prosperous XiDan Street. Suddenly a striking scene emerge before their eyes: a big crowd of people are marching on the street in groups and fleets. People are marching with slogans and banners in their hands. They are waving their iron fists shouting hysterically. Under the white cloud and blue sky the scene present itself before LiuMing’s eyes outstandingly.   



Analysis: BaiShiWu can’t wait to marry LiuMing. I’d rather say it is a great passion for her rather than sincere love at least at the present stage, but LiuMing’s great passion for study and occupational success saved her from the lover’s **. By this stage the anti-Japanese war broke out formally, the great clouds of people in demonstration is an anti-Japanese patriotic activity to show the national determination to fight for independence.

28楼

“打倒日本帝国主义!”

“中国人起来救中国!”

“卢沟桥战争爆发了!欢迎二十九军士兵英勇抗战!”

“向二十九军官兵致敬!”

“誓死保卫国土!决不当亡国奴隶!”

“……

……”


柳明拉住白士吾站到马路上,一双大眼,目不转睛地盯着从她身边走过的男女青年们—绝大多数都是衣着朴素的中学生或大学生们。他们个个情绪激昂,不少人的眸子里闪动着晶莹的泪花。柳明鼻子一酸,急忙扭头瞅着身边的白士吾:

“小白,你看这场面多感人!比‘一二·九’时候更加斗志昂扬—可惜,咱们没有参加进去—要不,咱们也走进队伍里去,好么?”

白士吾惊异的目光,猛猛地把柳明的手臂紧紧抱住的姿态,似乎也被这动人的场面激动了似的。可是,他却轻声在柳明耳边说:

“不要参加了—咱们还是离开这地方吧。我带你到个安静的地方吃饭去—参加游行示威么,以后有的是机会。”

“你看那个人!”柳明没有回答男友的话,却惊异地指向游行的人群,“你看,他在游行队伍里!”

“他是谁?”随着柳明的指点,白士吾看见不远的游行队伍中,一个五官端正的高个子年轻人,正把手中的小旗配合着游行的人群,向高处一伸—一伸的。他神情庄重,愤慨,随着队伍,不断激昂地呼喊着口号。

白士吾没有听见那个人呼喊什么,却在心里陡地冒出一个大问号,急忙把脸扭向女友:

“小柳,你什么时候认识了那个人?他是哪个学校的?……你们认识很久了吗?他叫什么名字?……”

柳明的脸色刹地沉了下来。双目直直地盯着那个游行队伍中的人,冷冷地回答:

“刚认识不到二十四个小时。是他救了香兰的丈夫和公爹,也救了我和苗虹。”

白士吾有点儿失态了:

“小柳,怪不得你一见他就这么惊奇,他似乎有什么魔力吸引了你……呵,小柳,我说话不好听,你千万不要见怪……”

听了白士吾的话,柳明躲开白士吾,扭头就向人行道上走。但刚走了两步,又把头扭向喧嚣的街道,扭向潮水似的人群。眼前的曹鸿远,比上次见面时显得更加清晰—他有一双浓浓的剑眉,有两只神采飞扬的大眼睛;他身材高大,却又匀称、挺拔。除此之外,他身处似乎还有那么一股不同于一般人的风采……她和他四目相视了。他似乎也认出了她,对她点点头,摇晃着小旗,和善的一笑。很快随着游行群众消失在人潮中。

“东北大学!”柳明看出那小伙子所在的游行队伍擎起的大旗—“东北大学”的红底黑字赫然在目。

“小柳,这是怎么回事?他已经是你的好朋友了么?”白士吾气喘吁吁地追问,那双柔和的长眼里,闪着一种困兽似的光。

“去你的!”柳明推了白士吾一个趔趄,接着又款款一笑,“这个人的行动,非同常人。所以我—我好奇,而且我还忘不了他救了我们……瞧你,什么都多心。你想想,对这样人,我能忘恩负义么?”

白士吾似乎也萌生了好奇心。他急忙跟在匆匆向家中走去的柳明的身边,用柔和、动听的北京话对女友说:

“小柳,没想到你这个医科大学生,对周围的新鲜事儿也这么敏感。莫非,你也在研究马克思的学说了?还是……”说着,白士吾莞尔一笑,薄薄的鲜红的嘴唇里,露出一颗并不难看的虎牙,“那个人究竟是干什么的?怎么会引起你这么浓厚的兴趣?我不信,你只是感激他救了你和苗虹。是怎么救的?”

柳明被白士吾纠缠不过,就把自己在小禹庄的那场凶险,向白士吾简略地叙述了一遍。

白士吾睁大眼睛,一边听,一边“呵,呵。”听完了,似乎还不过瘾又追问了一句:

“就是这些么?你真的以为他推到你,救了你?这有什么稀罕,如果我遇到两个漂亮的姑娘有危险,也会这样做的。”

“说的比唱的还好听。到那时候,谁知道你是什么德行!”柳明的犟脾气上来了,把手一挥,对紧追不放的白士吾睨了一眼,“我回家了。你也该回府歇歇了。怎么总是缠住我—不是早说过了么,现在,不恋爱,更不结婚!你别痴心妄想。”

29楼

白士吾尾巴似的跟着柳明匆匆走进了北平医学院的大门口。果然,学院已经放了暑假,平素十分寂静的校园里,今天却显得异常热闹,到处都进进出出地拥满了年轻的大学生们、老老少少的职工们。这里面有柳明认识的,更多的是她不认识的。她先走到学校的操场上,想看看聚在那儿众多的同学都在做什么。忽然,一阵激昂慷慨的声音传入她的耳廓,她急忙加快了脚步,奔向人声鼎沸处。

“同学们!同仁们!日本帝国主义大规模侵略中国的火山终于爆发啦!国民党当局先是跟日本签订了‘何梅协定’,接着又让汉奸殷汝耕成立了‘冀东防共自治政府’。东北沦亡了,华北的广大土地也在一块块被日本鬼子吞并并宰割。我们的华北,早已经是名存实亡……”

讲演者是一个美丽、朴素、神态飘洒的女大学生。柳明似乎在哪儿见过她,却又一下子想不起来。奇怪的是,她觉得这位年龄似乎比她稍大的女人,怎么跟自己的眉目、脸庞、甚至皮肤的颜色都有些相象?……这是怎么回事?

“日本鬼子不断挑衅,在强占我卢沟桥之后,大炮、机枪又不断轰炸咱们的宛平县城,驻守在卢沟桥附近的二十九军忍无可忍,已经全军奋起抗战了!吉星文团首当其冲,正在浴血争回交通枢纽的卢沟桥。他们的抗战是非常艰苦的,也是非常英勇的。尤其全军不分上下,一致抗战的行动,真是感天地泣鬼神。这是神圣的抗战,这是伟大的抗战!同学们,同仁们,咱们不分师生员工,要团结起来,热烈拥护二十九军的坚决抗战!全体民众要做他们抗战的后盾。你们是医学院,北平学联建议你们马上组织战地救护队、医疗队,配合其他学校的师生员工组成的各种爱国组织,迅速赶赴附近的战场,去救护、去慰问伤员和爱国将士!……大家赞成么?”

柳明两眼痴痴地望着那位站在大操场的一座台子上、口若悬河而又神态镇定的女大学生。讲演者的身边还围着几个男女学生—有柳明认识的本校同学,也有她不认识的人。她被讲演者的慷慨激昂的语言激励着,也被那个女大学生似乎带着某种魅力的神态、容貌吸引着……

身边的白士吾被她忘掉了。她感到有人不断揪她的胳臂,拉她的手,却都被她甩掉,只一心听着那动人的讲演,目不转睛地望着那翩若惊鸿的身姿。

一阵热烈呼喊,把柳明从梦寐以求似的意境中呼醒过来:

“好呀!好呀!立刻组织医疗队!”

“拥护!拥护!赞成!赞成立刻出发到卢沟桥去!”

“打倒日本帝国主义!”

“还我中华!……”

人们大声呼喊着,应和着,甚至有人哭泣着。那悲愤激昂的吼叫声在大操场上空惊雷般地扩散着、滚动着……

柳明激动得心里怦怦乱跳,她很想跑到台子上向那个女大学生立刻报名参加战地救护队。可是,还没容她向前挪动,白士吾却一把拉住她的胳臂,焦急地在她耳边说:

“小柳,离开这儿吧,我真有要紧的话对你说。咱们到北海—要不上中山公园谈谈去!”

柳明猛地缩回自己的胳臂,按捺住心里的气恼,放低声音,等和白士吾说:

“小白,你们学校的抗日热潮也一定起来了,你快回去看看,也参加学校的抗日活动吧!有什么话,咱们以后有空再谈行不行?”

白士吾出身在一个清室皇族的富贵家庭。虽然已经没落,可是“瘦死的骆驼赛过马”,他还是在父亲的娇养下,从小过着优裕的大少爷生活。他现在是朝阳大学法律系的学生。念小学时,他和柳明同过学,小学校长是白士吾的姑姑,她很喜欢柳明的聪慧用功,常把柳明带到她家里去。因此,柳明和白士吾从小就认识了。后来,两人都上了中学。虽然不同学了,但柳明的父亲恰好又在白公馆给柳明补习过语文、历史等功课,有时天气不好,这位十六七岁的大少爷,就骑着自行车到柳老师家中去补课,因此常常和柳明见面。渐渐地,他爱上了这个出身贫寒却长得很漂亮的柳明。柳明呢,一心读书,锐意上进,决心不早恋爱、结婚;对白士吾不过以朋友相待,既不远也不近,闹得小白心猿意马,七上八下,近又近不得,远又舍不得。这白士吾倒挺有耐心,一边加紧追着柳明,一边时常买些东西送到柳明家中,讨柳明妈的欢心—这位老太太见白士吾家里有钱,又是朝阳大学的学生,将来毕业了,准有官做,所以很愿意把柳明许配给他。只是柳明性情执拗,她认定的理,谁也说不动她。母亲几次劝她和白士吾结婚,都叫她堵搡回去了。有时说烦了,她就回答母亲说:“您瞧上了白士吾,您嫁给他去!”闹得母亲无可奈何,只好由女儿去了。

卢沟桥战事一起,北平的大、中学校,在党的外围组织—民族解放先锋队的领导、动员下,众多热爱祖国的大、中学生,又一次掀起了抗日救亡的高潮。七月八日起,各校陆续开展了各种救亡活动。党提出了“拥护二十九军坚决抗战”的口号,接着动员了广大学生走上街头向市民们宣传抗日道理,也有的到市民家中进行募捐活动,以援助二十九军的抗战将士;更有不少学生组织了慰劳队,救护队,热血沸腾地亲临前线去慰问、鼓励二十九军的抗战将士。一昼夜间,北平学生的抗日救亡运动,就像火山爆发般炙热燃烧起来!

30楼

BaiShiWu followed LiuMing like a tail and hurried into the gate of BeiPing medical academy. It turned out to be real that usually quiet campus in summer vacation appeared extraordinary noisy today crowded with students and staff young and old busy coming and going. LiuMing know some of them but mostly strangers. She went to the playground first to discover what the gathered men and women are doing there. Suddenly a shower of passionate speech spread into her ears. LiuMing hurried up for the boiling crowd.

“My classmates! My comrades! A full scale war of invasion has been launched by the Japanese imperialist and it broke out like volcano. But the present regime signed He-Umezu Agreement with the Jap follow by the establishment of an East HeBei Joint Administration against the Communist by a national traitor YinLuGen. The North East China had been sunken and the North China is now being gradually swallowed and slaughtered piece by piece. It has left with merely a name now……”

The lecturer is a graceful and smart female university student in plain clothes. LiuMing seems to have met her somewhere, but she couldn’t remember the place clearly. Strangely she felt this elderly female looks similar to herself whether in the brows, the face or the color of skin…… How can it be?

“The Jap provokes us constantly. After the seizure of Bridge LouGou they constantly attacked WanPing with cannons, machine guns and air raid. Our 29th Route army can never tolerate it and they had risen up in a full scale counter attack! Our regiment led by JiXingWen is now being in the first reaction in the recapture of Bridge LouGou which serves as a transportation juncture. The battle is hard but they fight valiantly. The officers and soldiers united as a whole in the counter attack. Their valiant deeds can move the God. It is a great anti-Japanese War and it is a holy anti-Japanese War. My classmates! My comrades! We should also be united as a whole to patriotically support their resolution to fight against the Japanese invasion! The whole nation should back them up. You are students from the medical academy and the BeiPing students union proposed that in co-ordination with other organized patriotic units from other schools you should immediately organize first-aid teams and medical corps then hurry up to the nearby front to provide your aid and condolence to the injured and other patriotic soldiers…… Do you agree with me?”

LiuMing stunned at the tranquil female student who stood at the platform on the play ground and made the eloquent speech. Surrounded her there are several other students among them some LiuMing can recognize. LiuMing was agitated by the patriotic speech and attracted by the charming manner and appearance of the lecturer’s……

She forgot the BaiShiWu by herside. She felt someone dragged on her arms and hands but every time she got rid of it. LiuMing listened to the speech attentively and her eyes focused on the passionate gestures of the figure.

A shower of shouting woke up LiuMing from her ideal illusion:

“That’s right! That’s right! Organize the medical corp!”

“For it! For it! We support! Set out immediately to Bridge LouGou. We agree!”

“Down with the Japanese imperialists!”

“Give us back our nation!……

Men and women shout out loudly the rest answered and there were even some weeping. Grieve and indignant roaring thundered through the playground. It is spreading, it is rolling.

LiuMing’s heart was pumping with patriotism, she was eager to rush to the platform and register her in the first-aid group. But before she can make any movement, BaiShiWu dragged by the arm and murmured hastily into her ears:

“Little Liu, let’s leave this place! I have something urgent to say. Let’s go to BeiHai Park or ZhongShan Park for the talk.”

LiuMing withdrew her arm she pressed down her anger and lowered the voice to say:

“Little Bai, the anti-Japanese tide must be surging your campus now. You’d better hurry up there and have look. Why not join them? If you have something to say let’s arrange the talk later.”

BaiShiWu was born into a royal family of the Qing Dynasty. Though the royal clan has been on the decline, there is a Chinese saying: “The hungered camel still looks bigger than the horse.” He can still live under the care of his father and share a life of abundance like a lord from childhood. Now he is a student from the department of law ChaoYang University. In his primary school years he had been classmate of LiuMing’s and his aunt was the principal of the school by the time. The aunt likes the hard study and the witty mind of LiuMing’s she often took her home. So BaiShiWu got to know the girl from his childhood. Later the two of them all went into middle school. Though they were classmates no longer, the father of Liu frequently went to Bai’s villa to teach the son history and Chinese etc. In time of bad weather the young master of sixteen or seventeen often bicycle to the teacher’s home to learn. Again the young lord often met LiuMing there. Gradually she falls into love with this poor but beautiful girl. While Liu resolved to carry on reading and seek for advance. She decided not to fall in love early or get married early. She treats BaiShiWu as common friend and keeps fair distance for which the boy turn awkward, neither could he approach nor could he tolerate keeping distance. But this BaiShiWu did have some patience, on one hand he hurried the step to seek after her, on the other he sent presents to LiuMing’s at times to win favor of her mother. The old mother saw that Bai is from a rich family in the mean time also a student from ChaoYang University, he should be entitled an officer after graduation, for all these the mother is willing to marry her daughter to him. The only obstacle remains that the girl is determined and no one could persuade her. Many times when her mother proposed her to get marry, she turned them down. Sometimes when the girl was disturbed she would answer her mother this way: “If you feel he is so good then you marry him!” then the mother would have nothing to say and let it be.

After the out broke of Bridge LuoGou Incident, the peripheral organization of the communist party—national liberation vanguard—carried out their propaganda in high schools and universities. They rose up a new climax of Anti-Japanese and Save the Dying Country Movement. From July the eighth, schools organized a variety of Save the Dying activity. The party proposed a slogan—Advocate the valiant anti-Japanese action of the 29th Route Army. Then students walked on the street to explain why we should fight against the Jap. There are some who went into civil houses for donation to provide aid for the anti-Japanese soldiers in the 29th Route Army. Many students organized consolation teams, first aid teams and went to the front with their blood boiling to encourage the warriors of the army. Over the night the activity out broke in BeiPing like a volcano eruption.

Analysis: The full scale inland invasion had been launched but the full scale anti-invasion had been long delayed. The anti-Japanese deeds of the 29th Route Army can be only valued as individual action. Why? The contents themselves provided the answer. The GouMingDang party has many different branches they hold different ideas, the center regime was controlled by the ultra-right wing who determined for a civil war to root out the communists force while sought for compromise with the invaders. In He-Umezu Agreement they agreed that the GouMingDang party’s center administration agency retreat from BeiPing, TianJing and HeBei along with their main military force—the Center Army Group and the North—East China Army Group. The north China was actually in military blank and administrative blank, it can only retain a mere name.

32楼

医学院大操场上的人群渐渐散开了,那个使柳明惊异的女大学生也不见了。柳明身边站着身材高大的闻雪涛,她是医学院里民先队成员。此刻,柳明忽然用力拉着她的手,小声说:

“闻先生,我做什么好?去参加救护队还是……”她瞟了一眼站在不远处的白士吾,生怕他又闯到身边来。

闻雪涛考虑了一下,亲切地小声说:

“柳明同学,听说你在卢沟桥那边有亲戚,啊,是外祖母家?那很好。你跟救护队一起去那边好么?还可以在那一带做点农民和工人的工作宣传鼓励他们参加抗日活动。你看怎么样?可以办得到吧?”

柳明想了想,点点头说:

“好,把我的朋友苗虹也找了去。她会唱歌,可以用歌声去鼓舞群众。”

闻雪涛赞许地点点头:“那太好了。”

“闻先生,请问你,刚才那个讲演的漂亮女学生叫什么?”

“她叫路芳,是北平学联的领导人之一。”

“唔,她真好……”柳明露出歆慕的微笑,“闻先生,你认识她么?有机会替我们介绍一下好么?”

闻雪涛笑着点头。因为忙,她转身走了。

柳明刚回转身来,忽然一只手拉着了她。原来是苗虹。

“明姐,咱们还回小柳庄么?那太好了!我不能离开你,你到哪儿我跟你到那儿。”

“你们又要走啊?”不料想,斜刺里又有一只手拉住了柳明,“小苗,小苗,你俩怎么这么任性呀?你们刚刚回到北平城里,又要到那危险的战地去……我劝你们还是不要去城外,咱们一同在城里参加抗日活动不是一样么?我有好些有钱的亲戚、老世交,我带着你们向他们募捐去募捐也是抗日工作呀!”白士吾忧心忡忡地向柳明、苗虹劝说着,边说边掏出一条白绸缎手帕擦去头上的汗珠。


“白士吾,你干嘛总象怕老鹰叼了我似的。要不你跟我们一同去吧!”柳明说着瞪了白士吾一眼,拉起苗虹的手就往校门外走。

“高雍雅怎么不见了?小苗,他跟你们一块儿去前线么?”白士吾避而不谈去不去城外的问题,却跟苗虹拉起话来,“他一定不像你们女性嘛,就是容易感情冲动……”

“管他呢!炮声一响,他诗兴大发,坐在书斋里写诗去了……小白,你快回你们学校看看去吧!你们那儿的救亡活动一定也闹得热火朝天。”苗虹学着柳明的样儿,一本正经地劝说白士吾。

白士吾点点头,点起一支三炮台香烟吸着。白净的脸,涌上阵阵潮红。半晌才轻声说:

“我真想跟你们在一块儿呀! 可就是,我父母只我一个儿子,管得紧他们绝不会叫我去的。我心里很矛盾,也很惭愧……”

The crowd on the play ground of the medical academy was gradually dispersed. The female student who made LiuMing wonder also left. WenXueTao stand by her side, she is a member of People’s Vanguard from the academy. This moment, LiuMing pulled her hand and said in low voice:

“Sir, what can Ido for you? To be in the first aid or……”She glanced at BaiShiWu who stand not so far away for fear that he would rush ahead again.

WenXueTao thought over it for a while then she speak courteously in low voice:

“Classmate Liu,I heard it said that you have relatives over Bridge LuGou. Oh. Your grandma, is that so? That’s good. You follow the first aid team then. Is it all right? You can do some propaganda work to the workers and peasants there by the way and persuade them to join in the anti-Japanese activity. How about it? Can you live up to? ”

LiuMing thought it over for a while then nodded her head.

“Ok. Then I take my friend MiaoHong with me. She can sing and we can use her singing to encourage people.”

WenXueTao nodded her head in approval: “That’s great!”

“Sir, may I askwho the pretty girl is? The one made a speech just now.”

“She is called LuFang, one of the leaders in the student league.”

“Oh, it is sonice!” LiuMing smiled in admiration: “Sir, do you know her? Can you introduce me to her by chance?”

WenXueTao nodded and smiled, then turned to leave. She is too busy.

LiuMing had not turned back when a hand hold her. It is MiaoHong’s:

“Sister Ming,shall we return to village XiaoLiu? That’ great! I can’t depart you and will follow you wherever you go.”

“You want to turn back there again?” suddenly another hand reached out to hold her, “LittleMiao, little Miao, how can the two of you be so headstrong? You just arrived in BeiPing the city proper and how shall you returned to the endangered zone again…… I advise you not to leave downtown area. We can join the anti-Japanese activity in the city. Is that all the same? I have many relatives and acquaintances here and we can go for their donation. Donation is also anti-Japanese activity, is that so?” BaiShiWu persuaded the two girls in his worry in the mean time took out a handkerchief to wipe off the beads of sweat on the forehead.

“BaiShiWu. Why shallyou always be afraid of my escape? Why not join us then?”

LiuMing glanced at BaiShiWu in disfavor, then held the hand of MiaoHong and went out of the campus.

“Little Miao,where is GaoYongYa? Would he follow you to the front too?” BaiShiWu shunned the question of going out the city, while she turned to MiaoHong, “He shall not be like you two after all you are female and easy to be moved……

“Never mind him!Once the gun fires he would sit in his study and inspirited to write a poem…… Little Bai, you shall go to your school to have a look. Your activity of Save the Dying should be on the climax too.MiaoHong took the example of LiuMing and persuaded him seriously.  

Bai nodded then lit up a brand Three Battery cigarette, his white and clean face flushed. Along while later he continued in low voice.

                            第四章

卢沟桥的炮声,因为蒋介石主张与日本和谈,已经停止一天多了。一望无际的绿野一片沉寂。

天阴沉,好像要下雨。

忽然,一阵嘹亮的歌声打破了沉寂的原野,象一阵风吹散了满天阴霾。

工农兵学商,

一齐来救亡!

拿起我们的武器刀枪

……

大刀向鬼子们的头上砍去

抗战的一天来到了!

抗战的一天来到了……

……

在小柳庄村边的一片场院上,苗虹站在一只大碌碡上,正在用她甜润、柔美的歌喉大声唱着抗日歌曲。许多学生打扮的男女青年,围着她,和着她,给她伴唱似的一齐在放声歌唱。这歌唱者当中有柳明,还有苗虹的男朋友一个蓄长发、戴眼睛、西服穿得随随便便的高雍雅。此外,便是一群群、一堆堆或远近地围着学生们听唱的农民群众有男有女,有老有少,更多的是小孩。个个瞪大惊奇的眼睛,盯着苗虹那鲜红的,象一颗熟透了的樱桃般的小嘴巴。

渐渐地,孩子们跟着学生们用高低不齐的声音也唱起了抗日歌曲;接着农民青年们也唱了起来

工农兵学商,

一齐来救亡……

歌声似有一种魔力,把学生们炽热的心,和农民们彷徨的心连结在一起。雨点淅淅沥沥落了下来,打湿了人们的衣服、草鞋。可是,人们并不知觉,场院上仍围着一群群、一堆堆忧虑惶惑又兴奋的群众。

“唉,我说,小姐们,公子哥儿们,你们唱的真比说的好听呵!有这瞎唱的功夫,怎么不去拿枪打日本鬼子呵?”

歌声嘎然停止。

人们都惊异地把头转向这个喊叫“小姐”、“公子”的人这个人扛着一根木棍,两只眼睛布满血丝,一副凶相。

“原来是他王永泰!”柳明心里暗暗喊着,跑到王永泰身边去,“您也来了!我们在宣传抗日用歌声宣传,比用嘴演讲,效果有时候更好。”

“哎呀,你不是香兰姐的女婿吗?没想到,你也到这儿来了。”苗虹的歌声被打断,皱着眉头,跳到王永泰身边,两只大眼睛滴溜溜的朝他转动,象埋怨,又象同情。

王永泰不理柳明、苗虹,扛着木棍只顾自己大声叫嚷:

“抗日,抗日,谁不会嘴里喊叫几句!要真抗日,就拿起刀枪来真格的。在这儿卖膏药谁不会!”

“这个人怎么这样粗野?……”柳明轻轻摇着头,向一个领队的青年说,“吴华林先生,咱们还唱什么?这个人我认识,他叫王永泰。他的新娘子在娶亲的轿子上就被日本人的大炮炸死了。所以他仇恨……”

吴华林二十一、二岁,中等身个,细眼长眉,姿态潇洒。他看看王永泰那似乎疯癫的模样,又看看被激忿包围的群众和学生们,忽然,跳到碌碡上,挥舞着手臂,大声呼起口号来:

“为王永泰先生的新娘子报仇!”

“打倒日本帝国主义!”

“中国人决不当亡国奴!”

……

王永泰怔怔地望望柳明,又望望那些围观他的人群。忽然,把木棍狠狠地向地上一扔,掉头跑走了。

夜晚,柳明躺在姥姥家的炕上,累得浑身酸痛。看看身边已经熟睡的苗虹,也累得打起了轻微的鼾声。她微微叹了一口气,回忆着这一天的活动:她和苗虹、高雍雅,随着吴华林的慰劳队转了几个村庄,也转了不少战壕,去慰问二十九军的抗战将士。他们不停地歌唱歌唱。常常唱着唱着,战士们、下级军官们就和他们一起唱起来;也一起挥洒着悲痛而又昂奋的泪水。

这一天,在柳明的生活中,似乎有某些异样,某些稀罕。“一二·九”运动时,她才上大学一年级,由于同学的鼓动,她也参加了一次游行示威。但那时,她的心都放在学业上,对这些“政治”运动,并不甚感兴趣。这次,当“七·七”抗战爆发后,也许由于目睹了香兰的惨死,也许由于敌人对中国公开进行了大规模的武装侵犯,她那颗平静的心,募地被骚扰了,时时涌起一股难以抑制的激动。所以,她才拉着苗虹随着大队学生出入在战壕中,出入在村庄和阡陌间……

34楼

The gun fire at Bridge LuGou ceased for Chiang Kai-Shek sought for compromise. The endless green fields are sunken in silence.

The sky was over casted and it seems that the rain is coming.

Suddenly a burst of singing broke the silence of the fields it blew like a gust of wind that dispersed overcastted clouds:

“Workers, peasants, soldiers, students and dealers,

United and save the dying.

Take our weapons—Gun and sword.

……

Broad swards, spilt to the heads of the Jap!

The anti-invasion day has come. It has come…

……

On the threshing ground by village XiaoLiu, LiuMing stood on a stone roller, singing her anti-Japanese song in her sweat and round voice. Many young men and women in student’s uniform encircled her, singing together loudly as if to accompany her. Among the singing crowd there are LiuMing and MiaoHong’s boyfriend—the GaoYongYa who wore a pair of glasses, in long beard and Western clothes in a casual manner. Beside them there stood peasants men and women, young and old, in piles and groups listening to the singing in different distance. Children counted the majority. They stared round their surprising eyes at the red, matured cherry like small mouth.   

Gradually those children also followed to sing in different tones the anti-Japanese songs then the young peasants also started to sing:   

“Workers, peasants, soldiers, students and dealers,

United and save the dying.”

The singing seems to have magic power they united the burning heart of the students and hesitating mind of the peasants.

The rain drops fall continuously it wetted people’s clothes and straw sandals. But people could not feel the drops of rain, there on the threshing ground still gathered crowds of anxious alarmed but agitated people.   

“Hi. I should say, ladies and gentlemen, your singing sounds far better than what you say! If you can spare the time to sing why not take up your guns and fight against the Jap!”

The singing came to a sudden stop.

People turn their heads to this shouting man astonished. The man held a stick in his hand. He has a pair of bloody red eyes and looks totally in anger.

“That is him. WangYongTai! ” LiuMing shouted in her heart and run to stand by his side:

“You come too! We are doing propaganda for the anti-Japanese activity. Singing has better influence than lecturing sometimes.”

“My! Aren’t you the groom of sister XiangLan? I can’t imagine that you are here too!”

MiaoHong’s singing was interrupted, she frown and jump by his side. She turned her eyes quickly as if to complain or to have sympathy.

WangYongTai ignored LiuMing and MiaoHong, he had a club on his shoulder and concentrate on his own shouting:

“Anti-Japanese! Anti-Japanese! Who can’t serve a few mouth pieces? We shall take action. We shall take up the gun and the sword to make it solid. Who can push your selling here?”

“How can this man be so coarse?……” LiuMing shook her head slightly and turned to a young leader. She said: “Mr. WuHuaLin, is it necessary to continue? I know this man. He is called WangYongTai. His bride was bombed dead by the Jap on her sedan. So he hates the Jap……”

WuHuaLin is one or two years over twenty, average height. He has narrow eyes and long brows. In sight of WangYongTai’s insane status and the indignant people, he suddenly jumped onto the stone roller waving his arms and shouted:

“Let take revenge for the bride of WangYongTai!”

“Down with the Japanese imperialists!”

“We Chinese can never live as conquered slaves!”

……

WangYongTai gave LiuMing a blank look then looked at the people encircled him. All of a sudden he threw away the club and ran away.

LiuMing laid on her grandma’s heated bed of brick tired and ache all over. MiaoHong by her side had already fallen asleep. The girl was so weary that she snored slightly. LiuMing sighed slightly and recalled the whole day’s activity: followed WuHuaLin’s condolence team, LiuMing along with MiaoHong and GaoYongYa walked around several villages and entrenchment to give condolence to the warriors of the 29th Route Army. They keep on singing and singing. Then the soldiers and lower officers sung together with them. They sprinkled their tears of grieve and excitement together.

This day in the life of LiuMing has something special and something rare. When December the 9th movement was in the air LiuMing studied as a freshman in the academy. Under the promotion of her classmates, she took part in one of the demonstration too. That time LiuMing put all her energies into the study itself and not quite interested in the political movement. Now after Bridge LuGou incident broke out and possibly in view of XiangLan’s death or the full scale armed invasion had been enforced, the tranquil heart of hers was suddenly disturbed. An irrepressible excitement surged inside. So she dragged MiaoHong and followed the crowd of students visiting the entrenchment, villages and the fields.  

Analysis: The war at bridge LuGou ceased for Chiang Kai-shek sought for compromise. But any compromise only made the Jap greedier as you can see in the following chapter. So compromise itself will not stop war. The Chinese people were awakened before the GuoMingDang regime. The common walks of life rose up and volunteer to aid the army. The patriotic songs and slogans along with the invader’s bloody crime committed to Chinese people made the nation indignant and ready. But a united national anti-invasion line has not yet formed and still had long way to go. The domestic conflict is still on the hot line. The nation is dying, so the slogan said to save the dying.

36楼

忽然地她想到白士吾。他口口声声说多么爱他,为她愿意牺牲一切,不绝地海誓山盟。可是,当她又一次要到卢沟桥附近来时,他竟借口父母不同意,没有跟她一起走,还不如苗苗的男友高雍雅那位“诗人”为了苗虹竟离开了诗斋……想到这儿,柳明不由得感到失望和惆怅。这时有一种超乎寻常的感情。这感情是什么?爱吗?……她觉得自己的脸颊有点儿发烧,心头怦怦乱跳……一会儿,她又想起白天王永泰那种疯癫的形状,他为香兰,心一定都痛碎了。多么不幸的人啊,他多么爱香兰姐!可是她死了……那个梳着一根大辫子、背着草筐的美丽村姑,又在她眼前晃动了。不知怎的,村姑忽然又变成了一个英俊的、高高的小伙子,他奋力扒着王家废墟的土块……西单大街上,在浩浩荡荡的人群中举着小旗振臂高呼……她无论如何不能入睡了,索性任想象的翅膀飞翔起来

“他是个什么人呢?怎么那样气宇不凡,那么鹤立鸡群似的?……”

“嘭、嘭嘭!”姥姥家的门,声音不大,却清晰地响了起来。

舅母惊醒了,从对面屋里很快走到外屋地上。姥姥也听见了喊门声,惊悸地压低声音说:

“呀!有人叫门啦这半夜三更的!……”

柳明的心立刻狂跳起来。战事一起,兵痞、流氓、土匪,还有鬼子、汉奸随时可能闯到姥姥家里来。这深黑夜,什么人来叫门?是不是坏人?……柳明急忙翻身爬起来,趴在小窗玻璃上,向大门口观望舅舅去开门了,他站在大门里低声向门外问了几句什么,稍停一下,两扇小街门吱呀开了,匆匆闯进两个人来。就着昏暗的月色,柳明看见一个庄稼汉打扮的男人,背着另一个庄稼汉……柳明的心又擂鼓似的跳动起来,他们是什么人?怎么人背人跑到姥姥家来了?当她听到背人的那个男人向舅舅问到柳明的名字,她吓得用力一推熟睡的苗虹,惊惶地小声说:

“苗苗快醒!出事了!”

苗虹一骨碌从枕上窜起身来:

“明姐,明姐!怎么啦?什么事出了什么事?”

柳明刚要回答什么,舅舅在门帘外喊起姥姥来:

“妈,妈!香兰女婿受伤了,要找明丫头给治治。”

姥姥早吓得在被单下面筛糠似的哆嗦着。一听“香兰女婿”几个字,立刻一边连声“啊,啊”,一边拿起枕边的火柴划亮了,点上了小煤油灯。

等到王永泰被安放在炕上,柳明已经穿好了鞋子。这时,听到一声呼唤,她又吃了一惊。

“柳明小姐,真对不起,半夜三更来打扰您了。您看,王家兄弟腿部受了伤,想求您帮助给他检查一下,治一治伤。”

这声音有点儿熟悉。柳明抬头向说话的人仔细一望,愣住了。这不是曹鸿远么?不是在西单游行队伍中的那个大学生么?怎么他忽然又变成了农夫,还把香兰的女婿背来?……还没容柳明说话,苗苗先张了嘴:

“这位背王永泰的先生,我认识您。您不是曹鸿远先生么?”

“对,我是曹鸿远。”高个儿擦着头上的汗水,似乎还在喘气。

“曹先生,你先不说什么,现在检查伤口要紧。”柳明说着,叫苗虹端着煤油灯,自己拿出听诊器,先听了一下王永泰的心音,扭头向那位满脸焦虑神色的背人者说:“不要紧,没有生命危险。”接着,麻利地、毫无忸怩之态脱下王永泰的破单裤,从腿根一点点向下部仔细检查,终于停留在膝盖下面的伤口上。那伤口还在汩汩地流着血。柳明用手向伤口周围的骨头轻轻摸了一会儿,苍白的脸上露出欣喜的笑容,“子弹没有伤着骨头,这太好了!”她又亲自拿过灯来,向王永泰微闭双目的脸上照了照,然后把灯递给苗虹,用两只同样有些苍白的灵巧的手指,翻开伤者的眼皮子看了看,这才长舒了一口气,转脸对曹鸿远轻声说,“您放心,他因为流血过多,有轻度昏迷。现在,我马上给他止血、包扎,一会儿他就会醒过来的。”

柳明把随身带来的止血钳、酒精、碘酒、药棉、纱布等战地救护用品,变戏法似的,在指尖不停闪动中,伤口止住了血,包扎好了。她刚刚喘了一口气,王永泰猛地一个鲤鱼打挺坐了起来,他红着两眼,环顾四周,然后,把眼睛停在那个背他的年青人身上,声音颤抖着:

“曹大哥,是您救我的把?您干嘛冒那么大凶险救我?!叫我拿铡刀多多砍死几个鬼子,报了仇,好跟香兰一块儿走了算了!”

“啊,你杀鬼子受的伤呀?”苗虹歪头一伸大拇指,又高兴、又钦佩、又十分好奇,“香兰女婿王永泰,你是怎么杀鬼子呀?这位曹先生您又是怎么救出王永泰的呀?我想,准是王永泰半夜跑到鬼子军营里去劫寨砍鬼子。他杀死了几个鬼子,鬼子一放枪,他受伤了。这时你从暗处一打枪,也许又打死了几个鬼子。您打完就跑。鬼子冲着枪声追下去,您又绕过弯曲的小道,把王永泰抢救下来,立刻把他背到小柳庄来找我明姐。是吧?”苗虹凭着她看小说和电影的一点知识,信口猜测起一场惊险有趣的故事情节。

37楼

LiuMing thoughtof BaiShiWu for the instance. He kept on saying how he loves her and how frequently he proposed with a solemn pledge of love. But when she returned to the zone near Bridge LuGou, he should refuse to follow in excuse of his parent’s disagreement. This Bai even could not match the GaoYongYa who abandoned hisstudy to follow MiaoHong…… At this LiuMingfelt disappointed and melancholy. There harbored inside her a feeling. What’sit? Is it love?
…… Her cheek burnsand her heart beats faster…… A moment later,the figure of that insane WangYongTai reappeared in her mind. He has gone madfor XiangLan. What a tragedy it is! How he loved her and his heart must bebroken for her. But XiangLan had died—the one who has a long pigtail, the onewho bears a basket, the figure of the beautiful girl reappeared in LiuMing’smind. Unconsciously the figure of the girl changed into a tall handsome young manwho exhausted himself digging on the ruins of Wang’s house—the one waving a banner inthe procession marching on XiShan Street…… Anyhow LiuMing couldn’t fall into sleep again. Her wing of imaginationstretched.

“What does he do? Why shall he look so outstandingly like a crane among cocks?
……”

Bang, bang, bang.” The grandma’s door was slightly knocked at. It didn’t sound too loud but very clear.  

The knock wokeaunt off. She walked from the sleeping room to the meeting room. Grandma wasalso woken up. She pressed her voice and said astonished:

“Hi. Someone is knocking at the door. It’s so late into the night. Who can it be?……

LiuMing’s heartbeat fast. When the war broke out, the vagrants, bandits and strayed soldiers even the Japs or traitors can broke into civil house like the grandma’s. Sodeep the night had gone into and who could be it? Is that a good man or devil?LiuMing got up in haste. She climbed to the glasses on the little window check,inspecting the main gate: aunt had gone to open the door. Firstly he stoodinside and inquired something, a while later the door opened with sound thentwo figures went in. In the dim moon light, LiuMing saw a man in the clothes ofpeasant’s carrying another peasant man on his back…… Again LiuMing’s heart beat like drums. Who are they? Why should he carryanother man on the back and went into the grandma’s.

When she heard the man carrying another inquired about the name LiuMing, she was astonished and pushed hard on MiaoHong by her side then said in low voice and in panic:

Wake up! Wake up! LittleMiao, something happened!”

MiaoHong sat up from her pillow suddenly:

“Sister Ming! SisterMing! What’s the matter? Tell me what happened?”

The moment LiuMing wanted to answer when aunt called grandma out of the curtain:

“Mother! Mother!XiangLan’s husband was injured. They want to let LiuMing to have a look. ”

Grandma had been shaking under her quilt long before. When she heard they say XiangLan’s husband, she cried out, scratched a match by her pillow and lit up a kerosenelamp.

The moment they lay WangYongTai on the bed, LiuMing had already put on her shoes. Then she heard another shouting which gave her another startle:

“I’m sorry to disturb you so late in the night sister LiuMing. Look, brother Wang had his leg injured. I’d like you to have a check and treat his injury.”

The voice seems familiar. LiuMing rose up her head to have a careful look then surprised. Isn’the the CaoHongYuan? Isn’t he the one who had been in the procession on Street XiShan?How can he changed himself into a peasant and carried in WangYongTai?
…… Before LiuMing could say anything, little Miao opened her mouth:

“I know you sir,the one who had WangYongTai on the back. Aren’t you CaoHong Yuan?”

“Yes, I am.” thetall man answered wiping his sweat on the forehead and breathing heavily.

“Cao sir, hold up for a moment. The urgent thing at present is to have a check on the injury. ”LiuMing pointed it out and produced her stethoscope. She let MiaoHong to hold the kerosene lamp for the light and checked WangYongTai’s heart beats. Then sheturned to the man in worried look who carried Wang in: “Nothing serious. Nolife risk.” Later LiuMing took off Wang’s worn out trousers without any awkwardness and checked from his thighs downward carefully. She finallydiscovered the injury under the knee and blood was still streaming out from thecut. The doctor slightly felt the bones around the cut then a delighted look appeared on her face: “Very good! The bullet didn’t hurt the bone. Liu took thelamp from Miao and lighted the face of WangYongTai whose eyes slightly shut,then she returned the lamp and opened the eye lips of the injured. The doctor took a long sigh and turned to CaoHongYuan to tell smooth toned: “Take it easy.He bled too much and in a slight coma. Now I will stop the bleeding and bandagethe wound. He would wake up a while later.”

LiuMing took outthe hemostat, alcohol, iodine, absorbent cotton and the gauze she had with herfor the first aid. With the swiftness of her fingers the bleeding stopped andthe wound was bandaged, all like in a magic. Hadn’t she had time to take a longbreath did WangYongTai rush up. He looked around with his bloody red eyes andfixed on the man who carried him in then said in trembling voice:

“Brother Cao, isit you who saved me? Why shall you take the great risk to save me? Just let mekill several more Jap with my sword and die with XiangLan after the revenge!”

“My! You gotyourself injured in killing the Jap!” MiaoHong produced her thumb and slant herhead to one side in delight, admiration and curiosity. “XiangLan’s husband, howdid you kill the Jap?  Cao sir, how didyou saved him out? It must be that the WangYongTai broke into the Jap’s campusto kill the devils. After he finished with some one of the Jap fired a gun sohe was injured. Then you might fire from one side and killed some more. Youescape after you used up the bullets and the Jap chase you up according to thesound of gunshots. You run away through a zigzagging lane, saved this Wang andcarried him on back to Village XiaoLiu to seek for LiuMing. Is that all? ”MiaoHong weaved up the story according to her slight knowledge from films andnovels.


Analysis: There is an interestingthing for us to think about. We know that WangYongTai was injured and we knowthat MiaoHong weaved that story. The author didn’t tell us the real thing. Butis that weaved story possible? If it is possible, then we retreated back to thetraditional anti-Japanese fairy tails in which all the enemies are made ofpaper. But according to my knowledge of history it is quite possible. In theinitial stage of full—scale anti-Japanese war, the invader encountered almostno effective countered attack. There is no defeat for the so—called royal armyof Japan.They just looked down upon Chinese army and Chinese people. So their campuseswere not guarded carefully. If should be a real WangYongTai and he designed anight assault to one of the campus he could have succeeded at least he couldkill several at the cost of his own life.

38楼

王永泰躺在炕上瞪眼盯着苗虹的嘴巴,神志似乎还有些迷糊。曹鸿远刚刚要说什么,又叫苗虹把话抢了去:

“我说,勇敢的、见义勇为的曹先生,那天在小禹庄看见您的时候,我记得您是个挺帅的大学生呵!怎么今天忽然又变成农夫模样了呀?”

柳明揪了揪苗虹的衣袖:

“苗苗,画眉鸟也没有你这么多嘴。歇歇吧,现在请曹先生对咱们介绍一下他救王先生的经过好么?”

“好!好极了!……”苗虹拍着手又要说什么,却又把嘴唇一咬,不说了。

那位救人者只对柳明、苗虹极有礼貌地“嗯、嗯”着,并不谈他怎么救王永泰的事。经苗虹一再催促,他才不慌不忙地岔开话:“这灯光是目标,还是管制一下好。”说罢,一口吹灭了油灯。屋里登时黑洞洞的,只听讲曹鸿远又说,“二位小姐,如果我没有记错的话,您们一位是柳明小姐,北平医学院二年级的学生。一位是苗虹小姐,是位歌唱家……”

“哎呀,曹先生,您的记性真好!您知道我喜欢唱什么歌么?这几天,我们来卢沟桥前线唱歌、宣传,我的嗓子都哑了,可是,我还是要唱要唱!”昏黑中,苗虹偎在柳明怀里,探出头,冲着端坐在板凳上的曹鸿远,不住地说这说那。

柳明睁大眼睛,在黑暗中望着曹鸿远,她也想问他一些事,但不知怎么问好,终于低声说道:

“曹先生,认识您真高兴! 您勇敢的精神真使我们……”她说不下去了,飘动着两只熠熠闪光的大眼睛,望望躺在炕上闭目不语的王永泰,声音低了,“您放心,王永泰的伤我来治。当然也要负责对他的护理。他可以住在我姥姥这里么?这样治起来方便些。”柳明的声音又恬静、又温和,给人一种十分善良、文雅的感觉。

“对,叫香兰女婿就住在咱家养伤吧。这小门小户的不显眼。”

姥姥是个心地善良的老太太,她正为香兰的惨死暗暗伤心。帮助受了伤的香兰女婿自然是她心甘情愿的了。何况还有香兰的母亲,也可以过来照顾她可怜的女婿呢?”

曹鸿远挪坐在永泰脚边的炕上,对姥姥点点头,又转过脸对柳明说:

“柳小姐,您的医术很不错内科、外科全拿得起来。能让王家兄弟住下由您给他治伤,那太好了。这儿是前线,还得提防敌人报复啊所以,我才把伤号背到您这儿来。当然,我的举动有点冒昧,实在是不得已,请原谅。”

“曹先生,您怎么知道我明姐医术好?也知道她住在小柳庄她姥姥家里?您可真是个神奇人物……”苗虹心直口快,脑子一闪念的事,一张口,就象喷泉似的,冒了出来。

曹鸿远仍然避而不答。借着窗外透进来的月色,只见他双手拉住柳明姥姥的手,微笑着对老太太说:

“姥姥,您真好!……永泰在您家养几天比他回家去好。在您这儿,柳小姐可以每天给他换药,他的伤很快就会好的。”说着,向躺在炕上的王永泰看了一眼只见他在高度紧张和疲劳之后,已经安静地睡着了。就又转脸对柳明说,“我这就去给王福来大叔送信去他一定急坏了。我在城里还有事,天亮就进城去。你们在城里有什么事需要我去做么?”

柳明听说曹鸿远要走,在昏暗的、浮动着一层薄雾似的微光下,望着他柔声说道:

“曹先生,我家住在西单背阴胡同三十号。我爸爸叫柳清泉。以后您如果有功夫,盼望您到我家去我爸爸是个爱国教书先生,他会欢迎您的。”

“您也到我家去!”苗虹抢过话头,“我家住东城裱褙胡同十三号。爸爸名叫苗振宇,是北平医学院的教授。他支持我参加救亡运动中国人有几个不爱国的呢?有几个愿意当汉奸卖国贼的呢?……呵,曹先生,我想起来了!您在北平医学院里做过事对么?怪不得我们都看着您眼熟呢。”

“你们俩位家里的住址我都记住了。以后有机会,一定登门拜访。”曹鸿远还是不正面回答苗虹的问话。他彬彬有礼地向两位女学生微微鞠了一躬,又向柳明姥姥鞠躬告别,就转身向门外走去。

曹鸿远走得快,柳明、苗虹也快步把这位陌生人送到大门外。这时天快亮了,灰蓝色的天空中,有几颗亮晶晶的小星在闪烁。两个女青年目送着矫健的身影,箭似的飞向被墨绿色的庄稼簇拥着的原野。转眼远了不见了。一种从未经历过的激越的喜悦之情,募地涌上柳明心头。她倚在门框上,仰头望着静静的夜空,望着灰蒙蒙天空上缀着的几颗小星,又向无尽的墨绿色的原野望去她笑了。

“明姐,您笑什么?”

柳明突地抱住苗虹的肩膀,头俯在好友的肩上,喘吁吁地不出声。苗虹感到有一颗心在激烈的跳动,惊异地问:“明姐,您怎么啦?”
“你听,公鸡打鸣了,咱们快进屋睡觉吧。”

WangYongTai lay on the bed still somewhat unconscious, he stared at MiaoHong’s mouth. The moment CaoHongYuan intended to something, MiaoHong took the chance instead:

“Hi. This just and valiant Cao, I remember you to be a handsome university student the day I met you at village XiaoYu. How can you change into a peasant look today?”

LiuMing pulled her sleeve and said:

“Little Miao, you are more gossipy than the thrush bird. Have a rest and let Cao sir introduce how he saved Wang out.”

“It sounds good. Very good!
……” Miao Hong clapped her hands the instance she wanted to say something again she bitted her lips and stopped.

The rescuer managed through the case politely but didn’t say anything concern the case. Under the intense pressure from MiaoHong, Cao tried to get around calmly: “The light could be the target, we shall control it.” Then he blew out the kerosene lamp. Darkness suddenly fell on the whole house-hold and they listened to Cao’s further talk: “These two sisters. If it is not mistake in my memory then one of you should be sister LiuMing, a student from BeiPing Medical Academy, other should be MiaoHong, a singer……

“My! Cao sir, you had a marvelous memory! Do you know that I like singing? These days I went to the front line at Bridge LuGou to sing and propaganda until my voice was broken and hoarse. But I’d like to continue and continue!” in the darkness MiaoHong huddled to LiuMing but reach out her head constantly and kept her talking to the CaoHongYuan who sat on the bench.

LiuMing stared her eyes big at CaoHongYuan in the darkness. She also wanted to ask something but did not know how to begin:

“Cao sir, it’s very good to know you. Your valiant deeds encouraged us……”But she can not carry on then switched her blinking eyes to WangYongTai who lay on the bed silently with eyes shut. Liu lowered her voice to promise: “Take it easy. I will treat his injury and take care of him for certain. Can he stay in my grandma’s for the convenience?” LiuMing’s voice sound peaceful and smooth creating an atmosphere of fair and elegance.

“That’s right let’s XiangLan’s husband stay here to heal. It’s a small household that catches no eyes.” Grandma’s an old woman who has conscience. She is now grieving for the death of XiangLan so she is for sure willing to help this injured husband of hers. Further more XiangLan’s mother also could come to nurse her poor injured son-in-law.

CaoHongYuan moved to sit by WangYongTai, he nodded to grandma then turned to face LiuMing and said:

“Sister Liu, your medical skill is quite well—capable of physician and surgery. It’s too good that he can stay and heal under your nurse. Now here is the front line we shall guard against the retaliation from the enemy too. That’s why I carried the injured here. Of cause this action are bold and impolite, but please forgive me for I can do nothing else.”

“Cao sir, how did you know the medical skill of Sister Ming is well? And how did you know she stay in her grandma’s at village XiaoLiu? You are really a figure of magic power.” MiaoHong is frank and quick at the mouth so she couldn’t help shouting out what she had in mind the moment her idea flashes by.   

CaoHongYuan still shun the question. By the moonlight penetrating through the window he held the hands of LiuMing’s grandma, smiled and said:

“Grandma, how kind-hearted you are!
…… It’s better for him to stay here several days than going back home. Sister Liu can change the medical dressing for him every day with your help so his injury will be healed soon. Then he glanced at the lying down WangYongTai: the fellow had already fallen asleep after so much tense and fatigue. Later he faced LiuMing and said: “I am going to send a message to uncle WangFuLai. He must be very anxious by now. By the way I have other missions to complete in the city so I will take the twilight and enter the city. Is there anything I can do for you in the city?”

LiuMing saw that CaoHongYuan will take his leave she looked at him in the dim mist like light and said in her smooth voice:

“Cao sir, my home locates at No.13 BeiYin lane, XiShan Street. My father is called LiuQingQuan. I hope you can pay a visit if you have time. Father is a patriotic teacher and he would welcome you there. ”

“I hope you can visit my home too!” MiaoHong inserted in, “I live at No.13 BeiBiao lane, East region and my father called MiaoZhenYu, he is a professor at BeiPing Medical Academy. He support me join in Save the Dying activity and I what I want to say is that how many of us Chinese are not patriotic? How many of us are willing to be traitors? Very few!
…… Cao sir, I remembered you had been working for BeiPing Medical Academy. Is that so? No wonder seems familiar to us!”

“Now I have the addresses of your families in my mind. I will pay my visit later if I have the chance.” CaoHongYuan still didn’t want to answer the question directly. He bowed to these two female students politely, then bowed to grandma farewell and walked out.

CaoYuanHong walked very fast. LiuMing and MiaoHong followed him in fast steps to the door to see off. The dawn is breaking by this time. Several tiny stars are twinkling in the grayish blue sky. These two girls saw the strong and vigorous figure off and the figure disappeared into the dark green fields of up growing crops as fast as an arrow. A never experienced delight suddenly rose up inside LiuMing. She leaned on the door frame, looking up into the tranquil night sky and those twinkling stars on the background. Then she switched her eyesight to wide spread green fields, she smiled.

“Sister Ming, what did you smile for?”

LiuMing held on the shoulder of MiaoHong all in a sudden and laid her head against it. She breathed heavily without saying anything. MiaoHong felt there’s heart beating fast then inquired surprisingly: “Sister Ming, what’s the matter?”

“Listen, the cock is crowing. Let’s return and have a sleep.”

                          第五章

柳明刚进家门,白士吾又坐在她家里等她。他不能下乡去找,就每天往柳明家里跑—一天至少两次看她回来没有。这一天,终于等到柳明回来了。这个白净少年,激动得一把拉住女友的手,眼里闪动着晶莹的泪花:

“我的勇士,小柳,你终于来了!你知道不?我一天两三趟来家看你;要不,就在家无数次地念《聊斋》里的—哦,那算是词,还是曲呢—‘望穿秋水,不见还家。又是想他,又是恨他,手拿着红绣鞋儿占龟卦’……”

见白士吾当着父亲的面,和她拉扯,又背念那些爱情的词曲,柳明晒黑了瓜子脸,一下子变成了一块红布……她急忙把手抽回来,不知是佯恼呢,还是真的生气,嗔着白士吾道:

“白士吾,不许你这样放肆!规矩点,坐在这凳子上说话。”

白士吾乖乖地坐在一只油漆剥落的、破旧的小凳上,仰脸望着柳明,想说什么却不敢开口。

呀哎,妈的傻丫头呵,你可以回来了!这些天,你跑到哪儿去啦?可把妈急死啦!也把白少爷—你看,他为你都掉了一圈肉。这大热天一天两趟往咱们家跑。这都是为你呀!……丫头,告诉你,往后,可不许你再上那个凶险地方去了!天塌下了压众人,你这大姑娘往前线上跑哪门子差事呵?消消停停在家—要不,跟白少爷溜达溜达—青少年玩玩乐乐……”

“妈,您还有完没完呵?我是做贼去啦?还是当汉奸去啦?……”柳明被妈妈娇惯,从来对妈说话,都带刺儿,“前线打仗那么紧,我是个中国青年,中国学生,人家有当兵打日本去了;我不过去卢沟桥附近—干脆说吧,多半在姥姥家照顾一下伤号,瞧你们这急得!你们不抗日,也不叫别人抗日!”

“小柳,你别这么说。这些天,我也做了不少抗日工作呵!”

白士吾急忙表白自己。

“你都做了什么抗日工作了?”柳明把目光从母亲脸上,转移到白士吾的脸上,“你不是说,你一天两三趟往我家跑,又成天在你府上占你的龟卦,你还有时间去参加抗日工作?我不信!”

“有,有,有时间!”白少爷精神振奋了,话也滔滔了,“小柳,向你报告:第一,我参加了学校的募捐队,我领着同学到我那些阔亲戚、朋友家里去捐款。我自己也单独募捐,光我一个人就募了上千块大洋,全交给学联的捐款部门了。我带同学去募的还不算数……”白士吾说到这儿,似乎被什么事情打乱了思路,怔怔地瞅着柳明不说了。

“你那第二、第三呢?说下去呀!”柳明忍不住追问。

“我在写文章宣传抗日呀。”白士吾还想说什么,柳明妈见女儿对自己十分崇敬的白少爷象先生考小学生般不客气,就急忙岔开话说:

“我说丫头,跑的这么风风火火的,还不去洗洗脸、换身衣裳。这哪儿象个大学生呀!浑身的尘土,满脸的油泥。敢明儿怎么当阔少奶奶呀……”

“妈,您的嘴真该拿封条封住!”柳明生气了,站起身就向屋外跑。

“小柳!小柳!你要上哪儿去呀?”白士吾急忙追出屋来。

“我去洗脸。”柳明回过头对白士吾莞尔一笑。


皎洁的月色,照得北海五龙亭一片银光。水上波光粼粼、雾气氤氲;岸边花香阵阵、绿树葱茏,这一切仿佛梦幻中的朦胧世界,浑然组合成一种幽静的美。白士吾紧挨着柳明坐在亭边的长椅上,金丝眼镜后面的一双眼睛,紧盯在柳明脸上,似乎要捕捉她面部流露出的每一瞬间的表情。

“小柳,让我握一握你的手好么?别这么‘冷若冰霜’—对,前面还得加上‘艳如桃李’四个字—对,艳如桃李,冷若冰霜,就是你的写照。小柳,你对着水面想些什么呢?跟我谈谈心好么?您知道人家有多少,多少心里话要对你说呵!”

柳明感到两只温热柔软的手,紧紧地握住了自己的一只手。对着这样的美景,对着这样热恋着自己、多情而又漂亮的男子,她的心软了,意动了,她再也无力抽回自己的手。

这样默坐了半晌。

“小白,你把手放松。我也有心里话要对你说。”

小白的手立刻松开,脸儿几乎挨到柳明的脸上。

“小柳,快说!我早就盼望—日夜地盼望你对我说—说说你对我的—心……”

柳明把脸一扭,离开白士吾的脸,却又沉默着。她的脸在月光下,在河水边,更显出一种静静纯净的美。

“你这个骄傲的公主!我对你真是无可奈何……说吧,你的心事不对我说,又对谁说呢?”
