Haraki is back

I said to the basket that Haraki is a lake and has been dry for more than 300 years.

Qiuyang shone on the raised face of the basket, and he asked, “There must be a lot of water in Haraki more than 300 years ago?”

I know that the problems with the baskets will be one after another, and our stomachs are already very hungry, so we must get some food quickly. As I walked outside, I urged him not to run around.

“Brother, then you come back early, I’m afraid!” The baskets shrunk in the pile of broken cotton wool.

Although it didn’t take long to get to this place, I had stepped on it, crossed the grass, passed a construction site, and came to a bun shop on the street. The chubby female shopkeeper always had a straight face, and every morning, she had to take the time to send the baby to the kindergarten not far away, which was just the time to start. I had no intention of staring at her house, but the first time I passed by her shop, she was blushing and tugging at her baby’s ear fiercely. At that time, listening to the baby’s howling howling, I decided to eat buns in the future, so I ate her food exclusively.

As soon as the shopkeeper had left his forefoot, I walked calmly, opened the drawer cage, and quickly grabbed the hot buns, two, four, six, and stuffed them into the cotton jacket. I also want to catch two more, and I saw an old man staring in the small shop across the street. I was a little nervous in my heart, and I quickly took the six buns in my arms, figured it out, and turned and ran.

As I ran, I was thinking in my heart. Me and the basket each ate two and left two, in case I could not find anything to eat at night.

In front of my eyes, there appeared to be a basket to eat steamed buns, holding it in both hands, smelling enough, and then biting open, chewing, and the red face in the black, smiling like a flower.

The basket has followed me for almost two years. I remember when I saw him for the first time, my cheeks were just two cute little dimples. Now, no matter how hard he laughed, he could no longer see the dimple. Malnutrition, coupled with infrequent face washing, the skin has become very rough, not like a 10-year-old baby at all.

I’m a little sorry to call him the basket. When he saw him, he was sleeping soundly in a basket and asked what his name was. He wiped tears and called Luo puppy. I said, it might as well call you a basket. Later, I found out that his meal was larger than mine. I ate one boxed lunch and he ate two boxes. I even suspected that because I called him a basket, his little belly could fit so well. I don’t think he’s eating too much, but I’m worried that if he can’t get anything to eat, he will panic.

When I passed the construction site again, I slowed down. I found that there are not many workers here, and they are all doing their work in a hurry. They should be piling piles. Perhaps this place will build several tall buildings in the future. Piles of steel bars and fasteners are randomly placed on the ground. I often hear people say that those who build tall buildings are all black in their hearts. So I had a bottom of my heart. I thought that the food and drink for me and the basket should have fallen for at least a month or two.

The bun was very hot. I unzipped the clothes, and the scent cleared into my nose. I think, wait a minute, while the basket and I are eating buns with relish, while continuing to tell him Haraki. When he looked up, he saw a small figure on the roof over the grass. A closer look was the basket. He also saw me, and he jumped up while waving his hand to call his brother.

I was in a hurry. I watched over the past few days. Although the house is remote and quiet, the house is too old. Three and a half of the houses collapsed. The remaining one and a half walls were covered with cracks. I’m looking for new accommodation everywhere these past few days. It’s too dangerous to live in this room.

I ran under the house like a gust of wind and shouted loudly: “You dead baby, come down to me, come down to me!”

The basket was frightened by my roar. This was the first time I roared him in two years, and it was so fierce. The hull hesitated for a while before pouting his butt and crawling down the broken wall a little bit.

As soon as the foot of the basket was on the ground, I grabbed his collar and raised my hand with a slap: “Tell you not to run around, you climb so high!”

The basket cried wowly, and tears flowed out like mountain spring water.

Suddenly, with a bang, the half-story house collapsed instantly behind the basket, and a cloud of smoke rose.

I took the basket and ran out a long distance, hugged him, and cried out loudly: “If something happened to you, how would you keep me alive?”

The hoop stretched out his cold and dirty hands and wiped tears for me: “Brother, I won’t run around in the future, I must listen to you!”

We sat under a tree that had lost its leaves and ate buns. I had planned to continue to talk to the basket about Haraki, but finding a new place was the most important thing in front of me.

Before leaving, I went to the pile of rubble and stood for a while. Not long ago, at a small stall, I got a leather jacket for the basket, which was very thick and full of hair. After a while in winter, he should not be cold. I really want to slice brick by brick and pull out that leather jacket. But looking at the broken bricks like a hill, I gave up, and the basket was good. What would a piece of clothing be?

When it was dark, we finally found another abandoned house on the other side of the construction site.

In fact, if you go into the city, the abandoned house is easy to find, and the conditions will be better, but then it is easy to be found by people. If you find it, it is easy to be sent to the police station or rescue station, and then those people will try to find you Send you home. Neither I nor Huo want to look like that.

There are a total of two abandoned rooms in this room, which are quite strong. There are actually two old sofas in it. It is estimated that the master will soon move away.

I took out the two remaining buns in my arms, swallowed it, and gave them to the basket. The basket is only next. I coaxed him to say that when I got the buns in the morning, I ate a few at a time, and now I am very full, not hungry at all, so I put another in his hand.

After watching the baskets eaten, the sky was completely dark, and the lights in the distance all lit up. I should act, and I said, “The basket, you are waiting for me here!”

The basket looked into the darkness of the room, looked up at the lights outside the window, and quickly grabbed me and said, “Brother, I will go with you!”

I wanted to push him on the sofa, but when I thought of the fright he was in the daytime, I stopped. Usually, I will never take him to work. He certainly knew what I was doing, but I didn’t want him to see it while he was doing it.

I didn’t speak, so I stood and walked out the door. Without taking a few steps, there was a loud cry in the room behind him. Before, whenever I was going out, he would always cry, but I always walked hard.

But this time, the cry of the basket was louder than any other time, which made people very depressed. I sighed and stopped. The cries of the hoop stopped immediately, and he slipped out of it and pulled me by the corner.

I took the basket and touched the construction site in the dark.

The night breeze was a bit cold. I took off my cotton jacket and put it on the back basket. The basket was not struggling, he knew it was useless, and obediently asked me to pull the zipper tightly. This coat is longer, and after putting it on, it makes him thinner. I remember when he first met him, he was chubby. Two years later, instead of growing taller and fatter, he became thinner. My nose was slightly sour, and I was determined to find a way to give him a good body.

Along the way, we didn’t speak, but the basket grabbed my hands tighter.

Soon, we came to the construction site, the lights on several pendant towers were lit, and the light was as bright as the snow everywhere. Occasionally, people were working, and the jingling sound became clearer in the night. We still came earlier, so we had to hide in a shadow.

There are many stars in the sky. Usually at this time, I and the basket, looking up at the starlight, chatting endlessly. We will talk more about Haraki.

Haraki was seen in a book while I was still in school. There are many mysterious places written in the book, which are very attractive, but the only thing I remember clearly is Haraki. This is a long-dead lake. I didn’t figure out where it is, but I know it must also be under the starlight I saw. Originally, tonight, through this starry sky, I would like to talk about where the waters of Harakiri have gone, but we can’t speak at this time, we can only look at the lighthouse nearby, and look at it again and again. Look at the stars in the sky.

The basket’s big eyes flickered in the dark night, very bright. At the age of ten, he should be leaning in the arms of his parents at this time, but he had no home. When the baskets were five or six years old, they remembered something. The parents in the impression were a pair of enemies. When they met, they fought a lot. After fighting for almost a year, the two divorced. No one wanted to bring the baskets. Both of them disappeared. Never looked at the basket. After living with his grandfather for two years, his grandfather couldn’t survive a serious illness. The loneliness of loneliness followed her uncle’s life for several months, and she couldn’t stand the viciousness of her uncle. After eating several of her big mouths at once, the loaf left the house and wandered around. Halfway through, the basket was sent to the police station once, and was transferred back to his hometown by the police, but his parents still had no news. He only stayed at his uncle’s house for three days, and escaped again, and met me soon after.

The construction site finally became quiet. Several tower lights were extinguished, and they were no longer so bright. Only the late autumn wind blew somewhere.

I pressed the head of the basket and said, “Waiting for me!” Then the cat leaned over the fence, neatly over the fence, and touched the construction site. After a while, I came to the pile of iron fasteners that I had found during the day. I propped up a snakeskin bag and loaded it one by one. Soon, half a bag was loaded, and when I tried it, it weighed a hundred pounds. I was cruel, and I put a few more. With one bite, I rubbed my shoulders and touched it back.

Although I am still 14 years old in two months, I am at least one taller than my peers. I have been out there for six or seven years. Although I haven’t grown meat, I have grown a lot. With a bag of 100 kg of cement, I can easily carry it and run fast.

After all, I only ate two steamed buns all day. I felt my hands and feet were a bit soft. When I walked to the basket, I was sweating and panting.

I put down my bag and wanted to rest before I left, the basket called out “brother”, and then thumped me back.

Seeing that I was finally relieved, the basket chopped open the bag and pulled a few fasteners out. I lowered my voice and shouted, “What are you doing?”

The basket said: “I’ll take a few, brother, you’re less tired!”

“Stop it!” My voice increased. But the basket did not mean to stop. I burst into flames, raised my hand and fanned it. With a loud bang, the basket crumbled on the snakeskin bag and sobbed with my face covered.

I was silent in the night for a while, then I pulled the hull’s face, wiped it a few times, hugged him in front of my chest, sighed, and said, “Look, you can’t touch it…you can’t be like a brother So, you know? You have to be a good person!”

When I returned to the room, I was already sweating and lying on the sofa for a long time before I recovered. My belly was empty, and I picked up the coke bottle and sighed it out. Coke bottles were picked up by the roadside, and the water was filled by faucets in public toilets. They smelled a bit, and they were not comparable to the spring water in our homes when we were young.

It was just dawning, and I got up. I’m hungry, I can’t sleep at all, and I have to ship early.

The basket was sleeping soundly. I carried my snakeskin pocket and walked out gently.

I divided the fastener into three parts and only carried one part. Each shipment cannot be too much, one is too conspicuous, and the other is too heavy to be on the way. In the past few years, I have sold a lot of things, mainly iron goods on the construction site. I dare not start directly at the money. After all, I have to face people. I am a kid who has no skill in that respect and no courage.

Ten days ago, the basket and I had just arrived in this city. As soon as I got out of the car freight station, I turned a corner and drilled into a patchy residential area. At the end of an alley, I saw this scrap buying station. It happened to see a unkempt middle-aged man. After looking around, he took out a brand-new cable from his arms and gave it to the expressionless old shopkeeper. The old man slammed it casually and drew out a few paper tickets and patted him. I thought at the time that this was my way of eating with the basket.

The old man of the shop owner dug me with his eyes, picked up the snakeskin bag, and asked, “Is it picked?”

“Yes!” Despite my guilty conscience, I pushed my chest up.

“If you dare to coax me, beware of knocking you to death!” The old man of the shopkeeper glanced at an iron hammer, and smiled slyly, whistling, pouring all the things in the snakeskin bag into a pile of miscellaneous things. In the middle of things. Then he shot me a small stack of banknotes. I counted it and it was almost two hundred dollars. At that moment, I was suddenly very grateful to the old man of this shop owner. If it weren’t for his small shop, I really don’t know how to get the money.

At a stall by the road, I even ate two large bowls of steaming mutton powder and filled a bottle of mineral water with joy.

Next, what I want to do is to buy something to eat. I think, I have eaten mutton powder, I must bring some better things to the basket.

I ran several stores in succession and bought several hamburgers, several ham sausages, two bananas, two hard-boiled eggs, and a large bag of rough bread. Finally, several skewers of beef were grilled on a barbecue stall, and the basket hadn’t eaten meat for a long time, so he had to solve his greed. I put these things in a snakeskin bag, which was already half a bag, quite heavy.

When I was going back, I saw a baby boy about the same size as the basket, wearing a flaming leather jacket, and a snow-white fur collar, which was very nice and warm.

I turned around and walked into a nearby mall, looking around like the leather jacket. After a few trips, I finally saw exactly the same in a children’s clothing store. But instead of choosing the big red one, I chose the black one. I can’t help it. I and Houxiang hide in Tibet like this, wearing the red and the red is too conspicuous. However, when asked about the price, it costs more than three hundred.

I stared at the leather jacket for a long time, and the more I looked at it, the more I thought it was tailor-made for the basket.

I gritted my teeth and hurried back. Going back to the house, I didn’t talk to the basket, put down the food, picked up the remaining iron fasteners and hurried to the scrap shop. This time, the old man of the shopkeeper gave me more than two hundred pieces, but he said fiercely: “Next time, you pick something else, don’t pick this anymore, how can there be so many for you, right?”

I successfully bought the leather jacket. I remembered that there was a water-tape behind our house, so I bought another piece of soap. I thought I was next to the water-tape, washed the face and hands of the basket, and then put on this black jacket, inside and out With incense, how happy should he be!

When the basket saw the new clothes, it turned out to be light, buried his face, took a few deep breaths, closed his eyes and said with a smile: “Comfortable, comfortable, comfortable!”

“Brother, what about you?” Luo basket asked me with a wink.

“I’m an adult, I’m in good health, and this one is thick enough!” I said as I folded his new jacket and put it in a bag. Winter is not far away, but I am very at ease.

That Shui Tai is actually an abandoned well. Squatting by the well, I wash my face and hands with the basket. He said he did it himself, but I won’t let it. In fact, I really enjoy the feeling of washing his face and hands. I told him Haraki while washing.

I took the soap, wiped it back and forth a few times on his face, and wiped out a layer of bubbles. I said, “The previous Haraki was filled with water. The water was full of fish. Those fish, like Your face is slippery, slippery and beautiful!”

I took the soap on the left hand of the basket and wiped a layer of bubbles. “All around Haraki is covered with green grass and full of various wildflowers. If you are there in the basket, pick and pick, you will pick a lot at once But here it is.”

I took the soap again and rubbed it on the right hand of the basket. “A small bird is flying around Haraki, and the birds all have beautiful feathers. If you are there in the basket, once the hand is raised, a bird will stand in your hand. , What a beautiful bird!”

The hive giggled, exposing small white teeth, and a cheeky scent throughout his face.

After washing her face and hands, she stared blankly at the water in the water, and asked me, “Brother, you said, Haraki is really so clear and bright when there is water?”

I said, “When Haraki has water, it is much clearer than that. It is full of sunlight during the day, like the gold of a lake, and at night, it is covered with starlight, like a silver of a lake!”

For several nights thereafter, we all sat by the well, watching the stars in the sky, watching the lights in the city, and continuing to talk about Haraki.

When I read the article “Haraki”, I was in the second grade of elementary school. I still remember the female teacher in our class who looked very good. When I saw reading, I gave it a book. There were many beautiful places in the book. I don’t know how many times I read this book, every article is beautiful. One of them is about a lake called Haraki. I have been thinking, why is this beautiful lake disappearing behind? Perhaps because of this question in my mind, I am particularly impressed with this article, and everything else is blurred.

I like reading books because of my parents.

As soon as I went to kindergarten, when my parents quarreled, I cried and I was beaten. Dad used a shoe sole fan and Mom used a hanger to pump. My dad didn’t dare to hit my mom, and my mom went crazy and dared to use a kitchen knife. Mom didn’t dare to hit dad, dad dared to set the house on fire. Both of them exasperated me. Later, I dared not cry, as long as the two of them quarreled, I shut myself up in the small room to read the villain’s book, and then read the fairy tale book. I use pinyin for my literacy, and my grandma taught me. These books were bought by my grandma, but unfortunately she died, others said they were mad at me by my parents. Other dolls recognized very few words when they were in elementary school, but I have started reading the whole book.

When the teacher gave me the book that night, when I got home, my father and mother were arguing. The daddy who drank like a lion, knocked a bottle of wine on Ma’s head, and suddenly his head was covered with blood. Mom didn’t show any weakness, and she swung the kitchen knife on the chopping board and slashed it on Dad’s arm with blood all over the floor. I was scared and passed away. When I woke up, the two people were gone. I thought I went to the hospital, but I didn’t come back for many days. When I finished the semester, I still didn’t come back. After my dad’s brother and my mom’s brother had a fight, no one managed me anymore.

One night shortly afterwards, I ran back to school quietly, stuffed the book in under the teacher’s door, and then quietly picked up the back of a truck that was heading out to another city. After several years, I can’t remember how many cities I have been to.

Winter is coming soon.

The wind drilled into the room like a knife, and roared roaring all day long. Lao and I lay in the house all day and night, eating dry food when hungry, and drinking mineral water when we were thirsty. We occasionally go out for activities. We talked one sentence at a time, what would this place look like if it snowed, and what the Haraki would look like after the snow, and whether Haraki would have water after the heavy snow . The basket was wearing the newly purchased black jacket day and night, with his hands in his sleeves. He said it was really warm, even warmer than the big stove.

The prepared dry food should be enough for a week, but I can’t sit down and eat in the sky. I have to go out every few days, and I want to supplement the food and drink. When I went out, the basket was left alone in the house. A few days ago, I found some small toys and villain books at the bazaar in the market. He can use these to pass the time.

Playing with toys requires the two of us to play together, but that villain’s book is different. He can read it by himself, he looks very focused every time, and he has to read it several times. Since we were together, I always taught the basket literacy intentionally or unintentionally. He is quite smart. After two years, he has been able to read some simple children’s books. I even plan to start teaching him to write next spring. The ten-year-old baby, can’t even write my own name.

One afternoon, I walked on the street for a while, and haven’t got what I want. Of course, if you can get the things you need in a small scrap shop, you can buy whatever you want if you change the money. If you really can’t get the money, you have to go with the goods. When ordering goods, always look for something that looks fierce, always straight-faced, likes to look at people squinting, it seems to be training, and always put your hands on your hips and open your mouth. Spitting everywhere, especially children who are always fierce. Seeing these people, I couldn’t help but hate them, always thinking of Fazi Shun their goods.

Turning into darkness, I arrived at a few breads, a few ham sausages, a few fruits, a few packets of yogurt, and a small bag of strangely flavored beans. Shunwei Weihu was almost caught. At that time, the owner of the shop was looking at the phone, I approached quietly, grabbed the bag of strange beans with one hand, and extended the other hand with it, wanting to fish for something else, Unexpectedly, the man raised his head, shouted it, and jumped out. The person was very tall, and he jumped to the door in one step. It was about to catch me, but he didn’t expect his foot to slip, a staggering, Almost fell. As soon as I filed, I got into the crowd early.

On the way back, I thought to myself, it seems that I can’t go on like this. If one day is really caught, what will happen to the basket? Thinking about it, I thought about the future. I always want to grow up, and the basket always grows up, are we just wandering like this for a lifetime? No, the basket will get to school, I can only take him to read some villain books, I can’t teach him anything else. I also have to learn to do something right, since I am the brother of the basket, I have to set a good example for the basket. In ten days’ time, I will be fourteen years old, and I am determined to wash my hands and do not do these things from my birthday.

Back at the residence, it was already dark, standing at the door, I called the “basket”, but no sound. There were a few more calls, and no one answered. I was taken aback. No matter how late I usually go, I don’t need my call when I come back, the basket will jump out of the darkness, hug me, one brother after another shouting, sticking for a long time.

I dropped the pile of things in my arms and groped in the dark. I felt the legs of the basket, but he didn’t move. As soon as I felt tight, I touched his face. Your face is so hot, and then touch your forehead, even hotter. I hugged him as quickly as possible, feeling like he was on fire, as if he had just been taken out of the fire. I shook the basket desperately and called him out with a crying voice.

“Brother, you are back!” The basket finally made a sound, but the sound was very weak.

“Basket, what’s wrong with you? Did you catch a cold!”

“It’s dark, I’m afraid, I’ve been waiting for you at the door…I’m afraid you won’t come back!”

My face was full of tears. I touched a bottle of water in the dark and fumbled for a few sips. Then he pulled up some old clothes in the corner to cover him. But the basket said with difficulty: “Brother, I’m cold!”

I felt the hull’s body start to tremble. When I was in school, one of my classmates was a lame man, and his speech was unfavorable. I heard that I was just getting a pendulum after getting a cold.

I cried out: “Basket, don’t scare me!”

I ran out of the door, the door was darker, the lights in the distance lighted weakly, and the wind roared more powerfully. It seemed that the roof was going to be exposed. Tears were flying sideways in front of my eyes, and I no longer felt cold, and my heart was in a hurry.

I turned and rushed into the room, lifted the basket, pulled it back, and ran out of the door.

In the night, my steps were flying fast. When I hadn’t met the basket before, I went out of Shunhuo mostly in the evening, and practiced the night walk.

Walking out of the grass, through the construction site, the city lights illuminate the road under my feet, I walked faster, ran forward like crazy, and kept calling: “Basket, basket, don’t you fall asleep, okay?” Is it okay to say a sentence?” But the basket was dull, without saying a word, only to hear his breathing more and more heavily.

Finally, at a street corner, I found a clinic. Although it was already in the middle of the night, the lights were still on.

With a cold wind, I knocked open the glass door of the clinic, and then fell down on a sofa inside with the basket.

Inside came an old doctor in his sixties, wearing a pair of square glasses, a loose white coat over a thin and thin body.

The old doctor did not speak, gently pulled me away, stretched out his thin hands, touched his face to the basket, squeezed his hands, looked at the eyes and tongue fur, and asked, “How come this is so bad?”

I didn’t speak, just held the basket tightly and looked at the old doctor pitifully.

The old doctor asked me: “Name? Who are you?”

I said he was called a basket, and I was his brother.

“How about your parents?”

I lowered my head and spoke for a long time: “We have no parents, we are orphans!”

The old doctor stared at us for a while, stopped talking, and motioned me to hug the basket to a bed in the middle.

The old doctor dispensed the medicine, skin test, hang the bottle, insert the needle, and infused the basket.

The hull was originally just like sleeping, but it went to sleep. I held his hot hand and watched the medicine liquid drop by drop motionlessly.

On a bed next door, a patient had just finished infusion and said to the old doctor: “It feels much better… It has been lost for a day. How much should it cost?”

The old doctor used a pen to draw on a list for a while, then looked up and said, “Almost 600!”

I was taken aback by the side and subconsciously touched the place where the money was placed. I think that the liquid in the basket will be lost, it is estimated to be a few hundred pieces, but there is nothing in my pocket.

When it was almost dawn, the basket was finally fever-free, but the doctor said: “If you observe again in the morning, you should have another infusion!”

When a glimmer of light appeared on the eastern night sky, the basket woke up. I touched his face and said, “You sleep well, I’ll get you breakfast!”

The basket groped out of his pocket and took out a piece of bread and said, “Brother, there is this, half a person!”

I coaxed him and said, “You are weak, I’ll get you something warm.”

I lowered my forehead, pressed the face of the basket, opened the glass door, and plunged into the cold wind.

It was too early, there were few people on the street, and not many shops opened. I walked aimlessly on the sidewalk, not knowing where to go.

In front of several shops that opened the door, the shopkeeper either smiled, was kind, or simply pathetic.

In a very large electrical appliance store, a long roller shutter door had been opened, and a man and a woman came out, sweeping the leaves in front of the door with a broom. The man’s burly body turned his back to me, and his thick arms looked strong. It seems that this should be a fierce man, I think, this is it.

I was thinking about how to look at the opportunity. The cat leaned on his waist and got into his shop. He turned around, saw me, raised his head, smiled, and said to the woman, “Look, this How diligent the little brother is, so early!” When he smiled, he even showed two vague dimples. Not only did he not see the slightest viciousness, but he felt very kind and gentle.

I hurriedly stepped forward. There were a few more people on the street, all squeezing their necks in the wind. But I didn’t feel cold at all. My eyes are traveling around, hoping to find the target as soon as possible.

I walked street after street.

When I was completely disappointed, in front of an alley, I seemed to hear the cry of the child from inside. I stopped and looked into the alley without seeing the figure, but the crying became more and more distinct.

I hesitated and ran to the alley.

At the end of the alley, the crying stopped, but someone heard howling.

It was a small courtyard, in front of a three-story building, a car, a man and a woman, two adults stood in front of a little girl. The little girl was rubbing her shoulders and rubbing her eyes.

The woman shook her finger and poked the girl’s forehead, more fierce than a bitch: “Cry again, I will tear your mouth!”

The man’s hands were on his hips and his eyes were staring straight at the little girl like a knife.

The woman continued to shout at the little girl: “I am not your mother-in-law, you have to listen to me when you are in this house!”

The man seemed to have lost his patience, and also shouted at the little girl: “Are you going to get in the car?”

The little girl didn’t move and continued to wipe her eyes.

The man lifted his foot, kicked the little girl to the ground, grabbed her, pulled the car door, and threw it in.

The two adults then scolded and got into the car. The car roared, jumped out of the hospital door, rolled up a burst of fallen leaves, and soon disappeared across the alley.

I couldn’t help but crooked into the courtyard door and turned around the building.

Without turning around, I suddenly found that a door was open. I squatted behind a flowerbed not far away, picked a stone from a bonsai and threw it into the door. There were two crackles inside, and then there was nothing to do. I picked up another piece and threw it again, but nothing happened. It must have been the man and the woman who were busy training the little girl, and forgot to close the door.

After touching the room, I found the owner’s bedroom accurately. Just turning to the second drawer, I found a pile of money, all of which was a hundred dollar bills.

The banknote was held in a long tail clip and had a finger thick. I quickly pulled six out of it, clipped the rest, put it back in place, and closed the drawer. I was about to step out, and the little girl sobbed again in her head, and her two little horn braids trembled sadly.

I stopped and looked at the room, only to find that it was a place of extravagance. It could not be called high-end furniture, and it revealed fearful wealth everywhere. However, in a fish tank near the wall, the water had already dried up, the tank wall was covered with smudges, and a layer of pebbles on the bottom of the tank was covered with gray bodies of several dead goldfish, making this large and beautiful house lifeless . Perhaps the little girl would watch this empty goldfish tank crying quietly every day. What a poor little girl. Why are those two adults so fierce to her?

As soon as I gritted my teeth, I turned around and got into the bedroom, pulled open the drawer, and took out all the money. When I left, I dropped the door heavily.

When I returned to the clinic, the basket was still infused, and he looked much better. I remembered that I forgot to buy food for the basket. The basket said, “Brother, I have eaten something. The fragrant noodles are so warm!” The basket said while pointing to the old doctor who was sleeping on a recliner.

Outside the window, I didn’t know when there was sunshine, and the gold glittered.

Seeing that the baskets are getting better, I plan to check out and leave here to enjoy the warm winter sun outside.

When the liquid in the bottle was about to finish dripping, the old doctor woke up, pulled the needle out of the basket, and said, “Okay, you can go!”

I reached into my arms and asked, “Doctor, how much is it?”

The old doctor had taken off his glasses, listened to my question, put it on again, stared at me and the basket from behind the thin and bright lenses, and said, “It looks like you don’t have money either…no, let’s go… Wear more clothes and don’t come again!”

I pulled the basket, bowed deeply to the old doctor, and then went out. Without taking a few steps, I took out a small stack of banknotes from my arms and didn’t know how many. I turned around, stuffed it into the glass door, and pulled up the basket to run.

Me and the basket bought a bunch of food, and went to the farmers market to buy a bag of charcoal.

When Dongyang was going downhill, we returned to our residence. After the charcoal fire started, the whole room immediately became strangely warm. The wind flowed in, but it was no longer so fierce. Looking at the basket and the red charcoal fire, I feel that this place where the door and the window are broken seems to be our home.

Around the fire, we hungry and ate, and when we were tired, we slept on the sofa and talked when we couldn’t sleep. Said the cars, houses, beautiful clothes on the street, the smell of Beijing roast duck. But Haraki is the one we talk about the most.

“Will Haraki snow?” the basket asked.

“It shouldn’t be. In that case, there should be water!” I thought about it and wanted to say.

“That Haraki will be so cold?”

“Don’t you know?”

“That’s next spring, let’s see Haraki go!”

We talked about Haraki one by one, and we just passed for several days.

This morning, I think it’s time to add something to eat. As soon as I went out, I found that it was white everywhere, and a thick layer of snow stepped on and didn’t lose my instep.

The basket is making me want to play with him for a while. However, he had to throw a snowball with him for a while. When throwing him, I deliberately missed it, fearing it would hurt him. When he threw me, I tried to meet him as much as possible, and let the snowball bloom on me. The basket was laughing happily. As long as he is happy, let me do whatever I want.

When I threw a snowball and wanted to throw it out again, the basket suddenly stopped, stopped laughing, and stared at me froze. I was baffled, and I heard someone behind me saying, “Oh ho, have fun!”

I turned around, two people, one tall and one short. When I looked at it again, I was so scared that my urine came out. They were all wearing blue-blue police uniforms. Every time I see the police, I walk around. I used to be afraid that they would send me back to my hometown, but now I am afraid that they will throw me inside. If so, what should I do with the basket?

I wanted to run without a leg, but I didn’t listen to it at all. The tall policeman took a step forward and grabbed my arm. The shorter man showed a photo, compared it to me, and said, “Yes, it should be This kid!”

In the police station, the warm heat makes people very comfortable.

The short policeman asked me, “What’s your name?”

I wanted to tell him that I didn’t have a name, or that I didn’t know what my name was, and I felt it was wrong. After thinking about it, I said, “My name is Haraki!”

“Haraki? Which ha? Which la? Which odd?”

“Haraki, Haraki, Harachi!” I said.

Two policemen look at me, I look at you.

The two policemen are actually not fierce at all, and they seem to like to tease children. Especially the tall man, on the way to the police station, smiled and told a few jokes to the basket, and stroked his head several times.

I explained: “Laughing haha, pulling and pulling, weird and weird!”

The short man asked the tall man: “Is this surname?”

The tall man also looked blank: “I haven’t heard of it!”

“So what’s your parents’ name?” the short man asked again.

I lowered my head and said nothing. I don’t want to mention them again.

The short man put the tip of the pen in his mouth and looked at me with his head tilted.

I didn’t know how long I was silent before I lifted my face and looked at the ceiling and said, “I don’t have a dad nor a mom. I fell from the sky!”

“How does this baby talk like this?” The tall man was a little angry.

No matter how they ask, I will stop talking.

I couldn’t ask any name here, and the two policemen went to another room. I know that they asked the basket to go.

I didn’t have to worry about the baskets at all. The two policemen treated him very well. From entering the police station, they not only bought food, looked for villains, but also rubbed snakeskin cream on his hands, saying that his hands were frozen and cracked.

The rest of my money was returned. When the two people came to collect the money, after learning about our situation, they insisted on leaving me and some baskets, but I refused. The tall man asked me to apologize to those two people. I tried to stab my neck and twisted my head back.

In the end, I heard the hull basket saying loudly next door: “Uncle, aunt, we are wrong… That day, if you don’t hit your little sister, my brother will definitely not take your money!”

Early the next morning, the two policemen took me and the basket out and went to a barber shop nearby.

“Like a little hedgehog, unkempt!” said the tall policeman.

The sound of the electric scissors was even and loud.

“In fact, it looks pretty good!” The short man squeezed the thin face of the basket.

There is an LCD TV on the wall of the store, which is broadcasting a news program: “… Haraki, which has dried up for 300 years, is back, forming a lake of about five square kilometers, and reeds and other vegetation along the river have resumed growth, and Showing a green breath…”

“Haraki is back, brother!” The basket turned to me, and the two dimples were looming.

A lot of greenery rose in front of my eyes, as if I heard the sound of gurgling water.

The two policemen look at me again, and I look at you.

I turned my head and smiled and said to the basket: “Yes, Haraki is back!”

This day is my fourteenth birthday.

Haraki is back

Li Qiqiang

Li Qiqiang, a native of Dushan, Guizhou, was born in October 1972. The Buyi nationality is currently employed by the Dushan County Education Bureau. The novels are mainly published in “Guizhou Writers”, “Mountain Flowers”, “Fang Cao”, “Small Novels”, “Miniature Novels”, “Short Novels”, “Literary Port”, “Yelang Literature” and so on. He is a member of Guizhou Provincial Writers Association, a student writer in the six southwestern provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities of Lu Xun Literature College, and the first and second contracted writers of Guizhou Literature College. Won the Qiannan Prefecture Government Literature and Art Award.

I said to the basket that Haraki is a lake and has been dry for more than 300 years.

Qiuyang shone on the raised face of the basket, and he asked, “There must be a lot of water in Haraki more than 300 years ago?”

I know that the problems with the baskets will be one after another, and our stomachs are already very hungry, so we must get some food quickly. As I walked outside, I urged him not to run around.

“Brother, then you come back early, I’m afraid!” The baskets shrunk in the pile of broken cotton wool.

Although it didn’t take long to get to this place, I had stepped on it, crossed the grass, passed a construction site, and came to a bun shop on the street. The chubby female shopkeeper always had a straight face, and every morning, she had to take the time to send the baby to the kindergarten not far away, which was just the time to start. I had no intention of staring at her house, but the first time I passed by her shop, she was blushing and tugging at her baby’s ear fiercely. At that time, listening to the baby’s howling howling, I decided to eat buns in the future, so I ate her food exclusively.

As soon as the shopkeeper had left his forefoot, I walked calmly, opened the drawer cage, and quickly grabbed the hot buns, two, four, six, and stuffed them into the cotton jacket. I also want to catch two more, and I saw an old man staring in the small shop across the street. I was a little nervous in my heart, and I quickly took the six buns in my arms, figured it out, and turned and ran.

As I ran, I was thinking in my heart. Me and the basket each ate two and left two, in case I could not find anything to eat at night.

In front of my eyes, there appeared to be a basket to eat steamed buns, holding it in both hands, smelling enough, and then biting open, chewing, and the red face in the black, smiling like a flower.

The basket has followed me for almost two years. I remember when I saw him for the first time, my cheeks were just two cute little dimples. Now, no matter how hard he laughed, he could no longer see the dimple. Malnutrition, coupled with infrequent face washing, the skin has become very rough, not like a 10-year-old baby at all.

I’m a little sorry to call him the basket. When he saw him, he was sleeping soundly in a basket and asked what his name was. He wiped tears and called Luo puppy. I said, it might as well call you a basket. Later, I found out that his meal was larger than mine. I ate one boxed lunch and he ate two boxes. I even suspected that because I called him a basket, his little belly could fit so well. I don’t think he’s eating too much, but I’m worried that if he can’t get anything to eat, he will panic.

When I passed the construction site again, I slowed down. I found that there are not many workers here, and they are all doing their work in a hurry. They should be piling piles. Perhaps this place will build several tall buildings in the future. Piles of steel bars and fasteners are randomly placed on the ground. I often hear people say that those who build tall buildings are all black in their hearts. So I had a bottom of my heart. I thought that the food and drink for me and the basket should have fallen for at least a month or two.

The bun was very hot. I unzipped the clothes, and the scent cleared into my nose. I think, wait a minute, while the basket and I are eating buns with relish, while continuing to tell him Haraki. When he looked up, he saw a small figure on the roof over the grass. A closer look was the basket. He also saw me, and he jumped up while waving his hand to call his brother.

I was in a hurry. I watched over the past few days. Although the house is remote and quiet, the house is too old. Three and a half of the houses collapsed. The remaining one and a half walls were covered with cracks. I’m looking for new accommodation everywhere these past few days. It’s too dangerous to live in this room.

I ran under the house like a gust of wind and shouted loudly: “You dead baby, come down to me, come down to me!”

The basket was frightened by my roar. This was the first time I roared him in two years, and it was so fierce. The hull hesitated for a while before pouting his butt and crawling down the broken wall a little bit.

As soon as the foot of the basket was on the ground, I grabbed his collar and raised my hand with a slap: “Tell you not to run around, you climb so high!”

The basket cried wowly, and tears flowed out like mountain spring water.

Suddenly, with a bang, the half-story house collapsed instantly behind the basket, and a cloud of smoke rose.

I took the basket and ran out a long distance, hugged him, and cried out loudly: “If something happened to you, how would you keep me alive?”

The hoop stretched out his cold and dirty hands and wiped tears for me: “Brother, I won’t run around in the future, I must listen to you!”

We sat under a tree that had lost its leaves and ate buns. I had planned to continue to talk to the basket about Haraki, but finding a new place was the most important thing in front of me.

Before leaving, I went to the pile of rubble and stood for a while. Not long ago, at a small stall, I got a leather jacket for the basket, which was very thick and full of hair. After a while in winter, he should not be cold. I really want to slice brick by brick and pull out that leather jacket. But looking at the broken bricks like a hill, I gave up, and the basket was good. What would a piece of clothing be?

When it was dark, we finally found another abandoned house on the other side of the construction site.

In fact, if you go into the city, the abandoned house is easy to find, and the conditions will be better, but then it is easy to be found by people. If you find it, it is easy to be sent to the police station or rescue station, and then those people will try to find you Send you home. Neither I nor Huo want to look like that.

There are a total of two abandoned rooms in this room, which are quite strong. There are actually two old sofas in it. It is estimated that the master will soon move away.

I took out the two remaining buns in my arms, swallowed it, and gave them to the basket. The basket is only next. I coaxed him to say that when I got the buns in the morning, I ate a few at a time, and now I am very full, not hungry at all, so I put another in his hand.

After watching the baskets eaten, the sky was completely dark, and the lights in the distance all lit up. I should act, and I said, “The basket, you are waiting for me here!”

The basket looked into the darkness of the room, looked up at the lights outside the window, and quickly grabbed me and said, “Brother, I will go with you!”

I wanted to push him on the sofa, but when I thought of the fright he was in the daytime, I stopped. Usually, I will never take him to work. He certainly knew what I was doing, but I didn’t want him to see it while he was doing it.

I didn’t speak, so I stood and walked out the door. Without taking a few steps, there was a loud cry in the room behind him. Before, whenever I was going out, he would always cry, but I always walked hard.

But this time, the cry of the basket was louder than any other time, which made people very depressed. I sighed and stopped. The cries of the hoop stopped immediately, and he slipped out of it and pulled me by the corner.

I took the basket and touched the construction site in the dark.

The night breeze was a bit cold. I took off my cotton jacket and put it on the back basket. The basket was not struggling, he knew it was useless, and obediently asked me to pull the zipper tightly. This coat is longer, and after putting it on, it makes him thinner. I remember when he first met him, he was chubby. Two years later, instead of growing taller and fatter, he became thinner. My nose was slightly sour, and I was determined to find a way to give him a good body.

Along the way, we didn’t speak, but the basket grabbed my hands tighter.

Soon, we came to the construction site, the lights on several pendant towers were lit, and the light was as bright as the snow everywhere. Occasionally, people were working, and the jingling sound became clearer in the night. We still came earlier, so we had to hide in a shadow.

There are many stars in the sky. Usually at this time, I and the basket, looking up at the starlight, chatting endlessly. We will talk more about Haraki.

Haraki was seen in a book while I was still in school. There are many mysterious places written in the book, which are very attractive, but the only thing I remember clearly is Haraki. This is a long-dead lake. I didn’t figure out where it is, but I know it must also be under the starlight I saw. Originally, tonight, through this starry sky, I would like to talk about where the waters of Harakiri have gone, but we can’t speak at this time, we can only look at the lighthouse nearby, and look at it again and again. Look at the stars in the sky.

The basket’s big eyes flickered in the dark night, very bright. At the age of ten, he should be leaning in the arms of his parents at this time, but he had no home. When the baskets were five or six years old, they remembered something. The parents in the impression were a pair of enemies. When they met, they fought a lot. After fighting for almost a year, the two divorced. No one wanted to bring the baskets. Both of them disappeared. Never looked at the basket. After living with his grandfather for two years, his grandfather couldn’t survive a serious illness. The loneliness of loneliness followed her uncle’s life for several months, and she couldn’t stand the viciousness of her uncle. After eating several of her big mouths at once, the loaf left the house and wandered around. Halfway through, the basket was sent to the police station once, and was transferred back to his hometown by the police, but his parents still had no news. He only stayed at his uncle’s house for three days, and escaped again. Soon after, he met me.

The construction site finally became quiet. Several tower lights were extinguished, and they were no longer so bright. Only the late autumn wind blew somewhere.

I pressed the head of the basket and said, “Waiting for me!” Then the cat leaned over the fence, neatly over the fence, and touched the construction site. After a while, I came to the pile of iron fasteners that I had found during the day. I propped up a snakeskin bag and loaded it one by one. Soon, half a bag was loaded, and when I tried it, it weighed a hundred pounds. I was cruel, and I put a few more. With one bite, I rubbed my shoulders and touched it back.

Although I am still 14 years old in two months, I am at least one taller than my peers. I have been out there for six or seven years. Although I haven’t grown meat, I have grown a lot. With a bag of 100 kg of cement, I can easily carry it and run fast.

After all, I only ate two steamed buns all day. I felt my hands and feet were a bit soft. When I walked to the basket, I was sweating and panting.

I put down my bag and wanted to rest before I left, the basket called out “brother”, and then thumped me back.

Seeing that I was finally relieved, the basket chopped open the bag and pulled a few fasteners out. I lowered my voice and shouted, “What are you doing?”

The basket said: “I’ll take a few, brother, you’re less tired!”

“Stop it!” My voice increased. But the basket did not mean to stop. I burst into flames, raised my hand and fanned it. With a loud bang, the basket crumbled on the snakeskin bag and sobbed with my face covered.

I was silent in the night for a while, then I pulled the hull’s face, wiped it a few times, hugged him in front of my chest, sighed, and said, “Look, you can’t touch it…you can’t be like a brother So, you know? You have to be a good person!”

When I returned to the room, I was already sweating and lying on the sofa for a long time before I recovered. My belly was empty, and I picked up the coke bottle and sighed it out. Coke bottles were picked up by the roadside, and the water was filled by faucets in public toilets. They smelled a bit, and they were not comparable to the spring water in our homes when we were young.

It was just dawning, and I got up. I’m hungry, I can’t sleep at all, and I have to ship early.

The basket was sleeping soundly. I carried my snakeskin pocket and walked out gently.

I divided the fastener into three parts and only carried one part. Each shipment cannot be too much, one is too conspicuous, and the other is too heavy to be on the way. In the past few years, I have sold a lot of things, mainly iron goods on the construction site. I dare not start directly at the money. After all, I have to face people. I am a kid who has no skill in that respect and no courage.

Ten days ago, the basket and I had just arrived in this city. As soon as I got out of the car freight station, I turned a corner and drilled into a patchy residential area. At the end of an alley, I saw this scrap buying station. It happened to see a unkempt middle-aged man. After looking around, he took out a brand-new cable from his arms and gave it to the expressionless old shopkeeper. The old man slammed it casually and drew out a few paper tickets and patted him. I thought at the time that this was my way of eating with the basket.

The old man of the shop owner dug me with his eyes, picked up the snakeskin bag, and asked, “Is it picked?”

“Yes!” Despite my guilty conscience, I pushed my chest up.

“If you dare to coax me, beware of knocking you to death!” The old man of the shopkeeper glanced at an iron hammer, and smiled slyly, whistling, pouring all the things in the snakeskin bag into a pile of miscellaneous things. In the middle of things. Then he shot me a small stack of banknotes. I counted it and it was almost two hundred dollars. At that moment, I was suddenly very grateful to the old man of this shop owner. If it weren’t for his small shop, I really don’t know how to get the money.

At a stall by the road, I even ate two large bowls of steaming mutton powder and filled a bottle of mineral water with joy.

Next, what I want to do is to buy something to eat. I think, I have eaten mutton powder, I must bring some better things to the basket.

I ran several stores in succession and bought several hamburgers, several ham sausages, two bananas, two hard-boiled eggs, and a large bag of rough bread. Finally, several skewers of beef were grilled on a barbecue stall, and the basket hadn’t eaten meat for a long time, so he had to solve his greed. I put these things in a snakeskin bag, which was already half a bag, quite heavy.

When I was going back, I saw a baby boy about the same size as the basket, wearing a flaming leather jacket, and a snow-white fur collar, which was very nice and warm.

I turned around and walked into a nearby mall, looking around like the leather jacket. After a few trips, I finally saw exactly the same in a children’s clothing store. But instead of choosing the big red one, I chose the black one. I can’t help it. I and Houxiang hide in Tibet like this, wearing the red and the red is too conspicuous. However, when asked about the price, it costs more than three hundred.

I stared at the leather jacket for a long time, and the more I looked at it, the more I thought it was tailor-made for the basket.

I gritted my teeth and hurried back. Going back to the house, I didn’t talk to the basket, put down the food, picked up the remaining iron fasteners and hurried to the scrap shop. This time, the old man of the shopkeeper gave me more than two hundred pieces, but he said fiercely: “Next time, you pick something else, don’t pick this anymore, how can there be so many for you, right?”

I successfully bought the leather jacket. I remembered that there was a water-tape behind our house, so I bought another piece of soap. I thought I was next to the water-tape, washed the face and hands of the basket, and then put on this black jacket, inside and out With incense, how happy should he be!

When the basket saw the new clothes, it turned out to be light, buried his face, took a few deep breaths, closed his eyes and said with a smile: “Comfortable, comfortable, comfortable!”

“Brother, what about you?” Luo basket asked me with a wink.

“I’m an adult, I’m in good health, and this one is thick enough!” I said as I folded his new jacket and put it in a bag. Winter is not far away, but I am very at ease.

That Shui Tai is actually an abandoned well. Squatting by the well, I wash my face and hands with the basket. He said he did it himself, but I won’t let it. In fact, I really enjoy the feeling of washing his face and hands. I told him Haraki while washing.

I took the soap, wiped it back and forth a few times on his face, and wiped out a layer of bubbles. I said: “The previous Haraki was filled with water, and the water was full of fish. Those fish, like Your face is slippery, slippery and beautiful!”

I took the soap on the left hand of the basket and wiped a layer of bubbles. “All around Haraki is covered with green grass and full of various wildflowers. If you are there in the basket, pick and pick, you will pick a lot at once But here it is.”

I took the soap again and rubbed it on the right hand of the basket. “A small bird is flying around Haraki, and the birds all have beautiful feathers. If you are there in the basket, once the hand is raised, a bird will stand in your hand. , What a beautiful bird!”

The hive giggled, exposing small white teeth, and a cheeky scent throughout his face.

After washing her face and hands, she stared blankly at the water in the water, and asked me, “Brother, you said, Haraki is really so clear and bright when there is water?”

I said, “When Haraki has water, it is much clearer than that. It is full of sunlight during the day, like the gold of a lake, and at night, it is covered with starlight, like a silver of a lake!”

For several nights thereafter, we all sat by the well, watching the stars in the sky, watching the lights in the city, and continuing to talk about Haraki.

When I read the article “Haraki”, I was in the second grade of elementary school. I still remember the female teacher in our class who looked very good. When I saw reading, I gave it a book. There were many beautiful places in the book. I don’t know how many times I read this book, every article is beautiful. One of them is about a lake called Haraki. I have been thinking, why is this beautiful lake disappearing behind? Perhaps because of this question in my mind, I am particularly impressed with this article, and everything else is blurred.

I like reading books because of my parents.

As soon as I went to kindergarten, when my parents quarreled, I cried and I was beaten. Dad used a shoe sole fan and Mom used a hanger to pump. My dad didn’t dare to hit my mom, and my mom went crazy and dared to use a kitchen knife. Mom didn’t dare to hit dad, dad dared to set the house on fire. Both of them exasperated me. Later, I dared not cry, as long as the two of them quarreled, I shut myself up in the small room to read the villain’s book, and then read the fairy tale book. I use pinyin for my literacy, and my grandma taught me. These books were bought by my grandma, but unfortunately she died, others said they were mad at me by my parents. Other dolls recognized very few words when they were in elementary school, but I have started reading the whole book.

When the teacher gave me the book that night, when I got home, my father and mother were arguing. The daddy who drank like a lion, knocked a bottle of wine on Ma’s head, and suddenly his head was covered with blood. Mom didn’t show any weakness, and she swung the kitchen knife on the chopping board and slashed it on Dad’s arm with blood all over the floor. I was scared and passed away. When I woke up, the two people were gone. I thought I went to the hospital, but I didn’t come back for many days. When I finished the semester, I still didn’t come back. After my dad’s brother and my mom’s brother had a fight, no one managed me anymore.

One night shortly afterwards, I ran back to school quietly, stuffed the book in under the teacher’s door, and then quietly picked up the back of a truck that was heading out to another city. After several years, I can’t remember how many cities I have been to.

Winter is coming soon.

The wind drilled into the room like a knife, and roared roaring all day long. Lao and I lay in the house all day and night, eating dry food when hungry, and drinking mineral water when we were thirsty. We occasionally go out for activities. We talked one sentence at a time, what would this place look like if it snowed, and what the Haraki would look like after the snow, and whether Haraki would have water after the heavy snow . The basket was wearing the newly purchased black jacket day and night, with his hands in his sleeves. He said it was really warm, even warmer than the big stove.

The prepared dry food should be enough for a week, but I can’t sit down and eat in the sky. I have to go out every few days, and I want to supplement the food and drink. When I went out, the basket was left alone in the house. A few days ago, I found some small toys and villain books at the bazaar in the market. He can use these to pass the time.

Playing with toys requires the two of us to play together, but that villain’s book is different. He can read it by himself, he looks very focused every time, and he has to read it several times. Since we were together, I always taught the basket literacy intentionally or unintentionally. He is quite smart. After two years, he has been able to read some simple children’s books. I even plan to start teaching him to write next spring. The ten-year-old baby, can’t even write my own name.

One afternoon, I walked on the street for a while, and haven’t got what I want. Of course, if you can get the things you need in a small scrap shop, you can buy whatever you want if you change the money. If you really can’t get the money, you have to go with the goods. When ordering goods, always look for something that looks fierce, always straight-faced, likes to look at people squinting, it seems to be training, and always put your hands on your hips and open your mouth. Spitting everywhere, especially children who are always fierce. Seeing these people, I couldn’t help but hate them, always thinking of Fazi Shun their goods.

Turning into darkness, I arrived at a few breads, a few ham sausages, a few fruits, a few packets of yogurt, and a small bag of strangely flavored beans. Shunwei Weihu was almost caught. At that time, the owner of the shop was looking at the phone, I approached quietly, grabbed the bag of strange beans with one hand, and extended the other hand with it, wanting to fish for something else, Unexpectedly, the man raised his head, shouted it, and jumped out. The person was very tall, and he jumped to the door in one step. It was about to catch me, but he didn’t expect his foot to slip, a staggering, Almost fell. As soon as I filed, I got into the crowd early.

On the way back, I thought to myself, it seems that I can’t go on like this. If one day is really caught, what will happen to the basket? Thinking about it, I thought about the future. I always want to grow up, and the basket always grows up, are we just wandering like this for a lifetime? No, the basket will get to school, I can only take him to read some villain books, I can’t teach him anything else. I also have to learn to do something right, since I am the brother of the basket, I have to set a good example for the basket. In ten days’ time, I will be fourteen years old, and I am determined to wash my hands and do not do these things from my birthday.

Back at the residence, it was already dark, standing at the door, I called the “basket”, but no sound. There were a few more calls, and no one answered. I was taken aback. No matter how late I usually go, I don’t need my call when I come back, the basket will jump out of the darkness, hug me, one brother after another shouting, sticking for a long time.

I dropped the pile of things in my arms and groped in the dark. I felt the legs of the basket, but he didn’t move. As soon as I felt tight, I touched his face. Your face is so hot, and then touch your forehead, even hotter. I hugged him as quickly as possible, feeling like he was on fire, as if he had just been taken out of the fire. I shook the basket desperately and called him out with a crying voice.

“Brother, you are back!” The basket finally made a sound, but the sound was very weak.

“Basket, what’s wrong with you? Did you catch a cold!”

“It’s dark, I’m afraid, I’ve been waiting for you at the door…I’m afraid you won’t come back!”

My face was full of tears. I touched a bottle of water in the dark and fumbled for a few sips. Then he pulled up some old clothes in the corner to cover him. But the basket said with difficulty: “Brother, I’m cold!”

I felt the hull’s body start to tremble. When I was in school, one of my classmates was a lame man, and his speech was unfavorable. I heard that I was just getting a pendulum after getting a cold.

I cried out: “Basket, don’t scare me!”

I ran out of the door, the door was darker, the lights in the distance lighted weakly, and the wind roared more powerfully. It seemed that the roof was going to be exposed. Tears were flying sideways in front of my eyes, and I no longer felt cold, and my heart was in a hurry.

I turned and rushed into the room, lifted the basket, pulled it back, and ran out of the door.

In the night, my steps were flying fast. When I hadn’t met the basket before, I went out of Shunhuo mostly in the evening, and practiced the night walk.

Walking out of the grass, through the construction site, the city lights illuminate the road under my feet, I walked faster, ran forward like crazy, and kept calling: “Basket, basket, don’t you fall asleep, okay?” Is it okay to say a sentence?” But the basket was dull, without saying a word, only to hear his breathing more and more heavily.

Finally, at a street corner, I found a clinic. Although it was already in the middle of the night, the lights were still on.

With a cold wind, I knocked open the glass door of the clinic, and then fell down on a sofa inside with the basket.

Inside came an old doctor in his sixties, wearing a pair of square glasses, a loose white coat over a thin and thin body.

The old doctor did not speak, gently pulled me away, stretched out his thin hands, touched his face to the basket, squeezed his hands, looked at the eyes and tongue fur, and asked, “How come this is so bad?”

I didn’t speak, just held the basket tightly and looked at the old doctor pitifully.

The old doctor asked me: “Name? Who are you?”

I said he was called a basket, and I was his brother.

“How about your parents?”

I lowered my head and spoke for a long time: “We have no parents, we are orphans!”

The old doctor stared at us for a while, stopped talking, and motioned me to hug the basket to a bed in the middle.

The old doctor dispensed the medicine, skin test, hang the bottle, insert the needle, and infused the basket.

The hull was originally just like sleeping, but it went to sleep. I held his hot hand and watched the medicine liquid drop by drop motionlessly.

On a bed next door, a patient had just finished infusion and said to the old doctor: “It feels much better… It has been lost for a day. How much should it cost?”

The old doctor used a pen to draw on a list for a while, then looked up and said, “Almost 600!”

I was taken aback by the side and subconsciously touched the place where the money was placed. I think that the liquid in the basket will be lost, it is estimated to be a few hundred pieces, but there is nothing in my pocket.

When it was almost dawn, the basket was finally fever-free, but the doctor said: “If you observe again in the morning, you should have another infusion!”

When a glimmer of light appeared on the eastern night sky, the basket woke up. I touched his face and said, “You sleep well, I’ll get you breakfast!”

The basket groped out of his pocket and took out a piece of bread and said, “Brother, there is this, half a person!”

I coaxed him and said, “You are weak, I’ll get you something warm.”

I lowered my forehead, pressed the face of the basket, opened the glass door, and plunged into the cold wind.

It was too early, there were few people on the street, and not many shops opened. I walked aimlessly on the sidewalk, not knowing where to go.

In front of several shops that opened the door, the shopkeeper either smiled, was kind, or simply pathetic.

In a very large electrical appliance store, a long roller shutter door had been opened, and a man and a woman came out, sweeping the leaves in front of the door with a broom. The man’s burly body turned his back to me, and his thick arms looked strong. It seems that this should be a fierce man, I think, this is it.

I was thinking about how to look at the opportunity. The cat leaned on his waist and got into his shop. He turned around, saw me, raised his head, smiled, and said to the woman, “Look, this How diligent the little brother is, so early!” When he smiled, he even showed two vague dimples. Not only did he not see the slightest viciousness, but he felt very kind and gentle.

I hurriedly stepped forward. There were a few more people on the street, all squeezing their necks in the wind. But I didn’t feel cold at all. My eyes are traveling around, hoping to find the target as soon as possible.

I walked street after street.

When I was completely disappointed, in front of an alley, I seemed to hear the cry of the child from inside. I stopped and looked into the alley without seeing the figure, but the crying became more and more distinct.

I hesitated and ran to the alley.

At the end of the alley, the crying stopped, but someone heard howling.

It was a small courtyard, in front of a three-story building, a car, a man and a woman, two adults stood in front of a little girl. The little girl was rubbing her shoulders and rubbing her eyes.

The woman shook her finger and poked the girl’s forehead, more fierce than a bitch: “Cry again, I will tear your mouth!”

The man’s hands were on his hips and his eyes were staring straight at the little girl like a knife.

The woman continued to shout at the little girl: “I am not your mother-in-law, you have to listen to me when you are in this house!”

The man seemed to have lost his patience, and also shouted at the little girl: “Are you going to get in the car?”

The little girl didn’t move and continued to wipe her eyes.

The man lifted his foot, kicked the little girl to the ground, grabbed her, pulled the car door, and threw it in.

The two adults then scolded and got into the car. The car roared, jumped out of the hospital door, rolled up a burst of fallen leaves, and soon disappeared across the alley.

I couldn’t help but crooked into the courtyard door and turned around the building.

Without turning around, I suddenly found that a door was open. I squatted behind a flowerbed not far away, picked a stone from a bonsai and threw it into the door. There were two crackles inside, and then there was nothing to do. I picked up another piece and threw it again, but nothing happened. It must have been the man and the woman who were busy training the little girl, and forgot to close the door.

After touching the room, I found the owner’s bedroom accurately. Just turning to the second drawer, I found a pile of money, all of which was a hundred dollar bills.

The banknote was held in a long tail clip and had a finger thick. I quickly pulled six out of it, clipped the rest, put it back in place, and closed the drawer. I was about to step out, and the little girl sobbed again in her head, and her two little horn braids trembled sadly.

I stopped and looked at the room, only to find that it was a place of extravagance. It could not be called high-end furniture, and it revealed fearful wealth everywhere. However, in a fish tank near the wall, the water had already dried up, the tank wall was covered with smudges, and a layer of pebbles on the bottom of the tank was covered with gray bodies of several dead goldfish, making this large and beautiful house lifeless . Perhaps the little girl would watch this empty goldfish tank crying quietly every day. What a poor little girl. Why are those two adults so fierce to her?

As soon as I gritted my teeth, I turned around and got into the bedroom, pulled open the drawer, and took out all the money. When I left, I dropped the door heavily.

When I returned to the clinic, the basket was still infused, and he looked much better. I remembered that I forgot to buy food for the basket. The basket said, “Brother, I have eaten something. The fragrant noodles are so warm!” The basket said while pointing to the old doctor who was sleeping on a recliner.

Outside the window, I didn’t know when there was sunshine, and the gold glittered.

Seeing that the baskets are getting better, I plan to check out and leave here to enjoy the warm winter sun outside.

When the liquid in the bottle was about to finish dripping, the old doctor woke up, pulled the needle out of the basket, and said, “Okay, you can go!”

I reached into my arms and asked, “Doctor, how much is it?”

The old doctor had taken off his glasses, listened to my question, put it on again, stared at me and the basket from behind the thin and bright lenses, and said, “It looks like you don’t have money either…no, let’s go… Wear more clothes and don’t come again!”

I pulled the basket, bowed deeply to the old doctor, and then went out. Without taking a few steps, I took out a small stack of banknotes from my arms and didn’t know how many. I turned around, stuffed it into the glass door, and pulled up the basket to run.

Me and the basket bought a bunch of food, and went to the farmers market to buy a bag of charcoal.

When Dongyang was going downhill, we returned to our residence. After the charcoal fire started, the whole room immediately became strangely warm. The wind flowed in, but it was no longer so fierce. Looking at the basket and the red charcoal fire, I feel that this place where the door and the window are broken seems to be our home.

Around the fire, we hungry and ate, and when we were tired, we slept on the sofa and talked when we couldn’t sleep. Said the cars, houses, beautiful clothes on the street, the smell of Beijing roast duck. But Haraki is the one we talk about the most.

“Will Haraki snow?” the basket asked.

“It shouldn’t be. In that case, there should be water!” I thought about it and wanted to say.

“That Haraki will be so cold?”

“Don’t you know?”

“That’s next spring, let’s see Haraki go!”

We talked about Haraki one by one, and we just passed for several days.

This morning, I think it’s time to add something to eat. As soon as I went out, I found that it was white everywhere, and a thick layer of snow stepped on and didn’t lose my instep.

The basket is making me want to play with him for a while. However, he had to throw a snowball with him for a while. When throwing him, I deliberately missed it, fearing it would hurt him. When he threw me, I tried to meet him as much as possible, and let the snowball bloom on me. The basket was laughing happily. As long as he is happy, let me do whatever I want.

When I threw a snowball and wanted to throw it out again, the basket suddenly stopped, stopped laughing, and stared at me froze. I was baffled, and I heard someone behind me saying, “Oh ho, have fun!”

I turned around, two people, one tall and one short. When I looked at it again, I was so scared that my urine came out. They were all wearing blue-blue police uniforms. Every time I see the police, I walk around. I used to be afraid that they would send me back to my hometown, but now I am afraid that they will throw me inside. If so, what should I do with the basket?

I wanted to run without a leg, but I didn’t listen to it at all. The tall policeman took a step forward and grabbed my arm. The shorter man showed a photo, compared it to me, and said, “Yes, it should be This kid!”

In the police station, the warm heat makes people very comfortable.

The short policeman asked me, “What’s your name?”

I wanted to tell him that I didn’t have a name, or that I didn’t know what my name was, and I felt it was wrong. After thinking about it, I said, “My name is Haraki!”

“Haraki? Which ha? Which la? Which odd?”

“Haraki, Haraki, Harachi!” I said.

Two policemen look at me, I look at you.

The two policemen are actually not fierce at all, and they seem to like to tease children. Especially the tall man, on the way to the police station, smiled and told a few jokes to the basket, and stroked his head several times.

I explained: “Laughing haha, pulling and pulling, weird and weird!”

The short man asked the tall man: “Is this surname?”

The tall man also looked blank: “I haven’t heard of it!”

“So what’s your parents’ name?” the short man asked again.

I lowered my head and said nothing. I don’t want to mention them again.

The short man put the tip of the pen in his mouth and looked at me with his head tilted.

I didn’t know how long I was silent before I lifted my face and looked at the ceiling and said, “I don’t have a dad nor a mom. I fell from the sky!”

“How does this baby talk like this?” The tall man was a little angry.

No matter how they ask, I will stop talking.

I couldn’t ask any name here, and the two policemen went to another room. I know that they asked the basket to go.

I didn’t have to worry about the baskets at all. The two policemen were very kind to him. From entering the police station, they not only bought food, looked for villains, but also rubbed snakeskin cream on his hands, saying that his hands were frozen and cracked.

The rest of my money was returned. When the two people came to collect the money, after learning about our situation, they insisted on leaving me and some baskets, but I refused. The tall man asked me to apologize to those two people. I tried to stab my neck and twisted my head back.

In the end, I heard the hull basket saying loudly next door: “Uncle, aunt, we are wrong… That day, if you don’t hit your little sister, my brother will definitely not take your money!”

Early the next morning, the two policemen took me and the basket out and went to a barber shop nearby.

“Like a little hedgehog, unkempt!” said the tall policeman.

The sound of the electric scissors was even and loud.

“In fact, it looks pretty good!” The short man squeezed the thin face of the basket.

There is an LCD TV on the wall of the store, which is broadcasting a news program: “… Haraki, which has dried up for 300 years, is back, forming a lake of about five square kilometers, and reeds and other vegetation along the river have resumed growth, and Showing a green breath…”

“Haraki is back, brother!” The basket turned to me, and the two dimples were looming.

A lot of greenery rose in front of my eyes, as if I heard the sound of gurgling water.

The two policemen look at me again, and I look at you.

I turned my head and smiled and said to the basket: “Yes, Haraki is back!”

This day is my fourteenth birthday.
