Pulling the curtain to worship the mother river beam, look at the eyes of tears withered in white worry.

In the miserable Chaimen night, it is better to have children than nothing.

My hometown is in a remote mountainous area in the southwest. There is a beautiful river in front of the village, which is one of the sources of Wujiang River. I go back to my hometown every summer to give my old mother a long life. In the summer of 2015, after giving my mother a long life, I stayed at home for a few more days. When I had nothing to do, I went fishing with my cousin.

The big river has not changed much, it is still so clear water, and so many children are playing in the water. The difference is that I, who used to play in the water, have become an uncle who “children meet and never met” in ancient poems. We found a quiet place to sit down. Not long after we started fishing, Aunt Zhang came to look for me.

Aunt Zhang is an old widow. He originally had a son. He was 2 years older than me. When he was about 11 years old, he drowned in the river while bathing. Every time I see the old man looking lonely, I feel strangely uncomfortable.

Aunt Zhang and I chatted for a while, and I saw that she didn’t mean to leave, as if she had come to talk to me on a special trip, and asked: “Aunt, are you okay?”

Aunt Zhang hesitated for a while, and said with a smile: “It’s okay, I wonder if you went to college? I read a lot of books, I want to ask you something.”

There was a panic in my heart, there was no ink in my stomach, I was afraid of such a thing. Seeing that the old man said sincerely, he was too embarrassed to refuse, so he bit his head and said: “Auntie, I read some useless books. But it doesn’t matter, you tell me maybe I know a little bit.”

“You said that if the water ghost doesn’t find a substitute for the dead ghost, can you really be reborn?” Aunt Zhang asked me.

After listening to Aunt Zhang, the first thing I want to say in my heart is: “Auntie, I read so few books!” But at least I have been mixed up for so many years. Auntie has to be satisfied, right? If you rashly say yes or no, although you can make up some reasons, what if it is not what your aunt wants? Wouldn’t it be possible to hurt the old man’s heart by accident? Let’s understand the situation first.

“Auntie, there is a lot of knowledge here. Why would you ask this question?” I asked her.

“Oh, isn’t this my Xiaohua who was drowned that year? A few years before Xiaohua’s death, children drowned every year. Those in the village said My Xiaohua has acted as someone else’s replacement for the dead, and will find another replacement for the dead. But since the death of my Xiaohua, Dahe has been safe, and no child has ever had an accident. Don’t you think it’s strange?” Aunt Zhang said .

“Yes, that’s really the case! Brother Xiaohua was a good man before he was alive, so I went there, And then help them not to reincarnate, but to be immortals directly. “

“Really? “Aunt Zhang’s eyes burst into light instantly.

“Really! “I said categorically, “If good people are not rewarded, won’t the world be messed up?” “

Aunt Zhang left happily. She got a better answer than she expected. And I can coax Aunt Zhang, but I can’t coax myself. Seriously, I hope I am right.
