大歌舞的演出至少持续至1964年年底，其后就开始拍电影。据说毛泽东认为当时的中国不够强大，电影删除了混声合唱《我们一定要解放台湾》，《敬爱的毛主席，我们心中的红太阳》，童声合唱《我们是共产主义的接班人》，大合唱《全世界无产者联合起来》。如此一改，所有的小演员都被打发去作前排观众。作为观众演员，一旦拍摄开始，我们既不能回头也不能走动，又因为看了太多次，我们几乎学会了里面所有的歌曲，也会背很多台词，诸如 “天是黑沉沉的天，地是黑沉沉的地，苦难深重的中国人民啊…. ”“戴镣长街行，告别众乡亲，砍头不要紧，只要主义真… ”。那时毕竟年纪小，在封闭的反复灌输下，即不知道刚经历过大饥荒时代，也不可能证伪。有时实在太无聊了，我们就拨弄桌上的无线电设备，估计其中的不少被拨弄坏了。终场时我们要全体起立向后面的观众摇纸花，那就是后来人们看到的电影大型音乐舞蹈史诗《东方红》。
Joe in the cadre school in early 1972
“Shajiabang speech, my mother from the fires, the work was transferred to a music teacher. She taught read music, her classes became this life only music education, talking about the many years.
Participate in the performance will not only be able to circumvent the labor can eat good things, meet interesting. I’ve seen ula grass long fluttering at the edge of Jingpo Lake, furtive mink farm mink.
Ginseng plantation red ginseng fruit reminds me of the the animated the “ginseng doll” boxcar passing truck frozen lake scene is like a Russian novel. Performance, I also have a number of first drink spirits, eating dog caught lice …
Hoe Wo, wheat harvest, harvest, winter “zipper” ……… we usher in 1970. In field training, we thought Zhenbaodao event is the biggest event in the world, completely unaware of the human has moon!
The late autumn of 1971,
cadre school of the vast majority of people know that the Lin Biao incident, when they closed learning, I still chaotic in front of the swineherd. The end of that year, I finally know that shaking a message, from even dull as I intuited fool some of the “sacred” things no longer hold deep reverence.
Fen Yang is more than the snow I went to established Tateie, and her father Ding Bobo first time approved to visit relatives cure. Yuying, Li Li, everyone (4.12 stranger) and I drank usher in 1972.
At that time, we did not know, only half a year, cadre disbanded. And Yuying I finally settled on Nanjing standing legislation and everyone to go to war.
I received a letter military uniform according Everyone, when he was in Vietnam to participate in “self-defense” Strikes Back.
40 years later!
Our previous generation of the cadre school students or have passed away or frail. A few years ago, I went to see a cadre school of the elderly, that he keep a diary. I propose to look at his diary, he really even readable, but today did what live is to open what will.
I have found memories of the same generation is almost no details, but full of flowers like emotion, the kind of feelings why still?
Cadre school years in a period not choose life, despite its hard not be compared to the life of the educated youth or farmers. I recall that period of life, the and even performances climax, only a few out of play, and that a few songs.
For a people, the songs of childhood and adolescence, if not vital, but also the most solid part of memory. Unfortunately, it is only that a few songs of my childhood and youth.

“The East is Red” big song and dance – a child’s memory

“The East is Red” big song and dance – a child’s memory
The summer of 1964,
I was suffering from pneumonia in hospitalized, discharged soon receive immediate notification back to school. The boarding school is only the holidays at home, the mother and do not want to let me return to school, but I heard a political task, she would be unable to say anything.
Me and the other children were taken to a large hall in Jingshan Park, the house is tall, dark. Self out of the window, streaks of sunlight is incident the dust wafted including four teachers standing on the beam.
Teacher in a former colleague and my mother, and later transferred to Children’s Palace work, so I guess they are the Children’s Palace, the teacher. Each teacher front row, a team of children, when it was my turn, the teacher asked me to stand up straight and relying on her chest, and then hand than than my head, turned around and asked: “Such a job can be ? “
Then she will be my income into the side of the child. As a ten-year old child, I know in the selection, but it is not clear selection of what to do. Elected, I know we will be participating in a large-scale music and dance epic “The East is Red” Children’s Chorus “We are the successors of communism”, informed the occasion and thereafter, we continue to inform the importance of the matter and participation in the glory.
I do not remember the test through song and dance, but I had participated in the CCTV cabaret, I guess it might be primaries.
Rehearsal later, I contacted the primary school students from several cadres school for the children, the Beijing experiment a small, experimental two small, historians alley primary and House Science Hutong primary school.
The large dance rehearsal in the auditorium of the Great Hall of the People. Beginning of the rehearsal, Zhou Enlai arrive for several days to watch, the teacher repeatedly remind us, “Premier Zhou Enlai in the audience, and therefore,” Premier Zhou was the general director of the Dongfanghong dance “argument. A big song and dance scenes erhu song “River” miserable music vend children selling woman hovered between life and death.
Zhou Enlai looked and said: “You have not seen the old social selling children, to plug the grass the subject.” So that was sold to the girls head ruffled a relatively coarse plant.
The big dance participants up to 3000, some Chinese mainland was well-known actor: the cabaret theater Guo Lanying and Wang Kun the singing “Nanniwan and farmers Song, the coalmine Song and Dance Ensemble of the Deng Yuhua sing colorful clouds,
Political Department to perform the Foremost male singing on the Songhua River, the Oriental Song and Dance Ensemble of the Songhua sing “the hymn. Zhang Yue Male Female Solo take Western singing, we can see how to focus on nationalization.
Particularly noteworthy minority actors unique looks and clothing, they Uygur dancer Aida Abdullah, Dai dancer knife Meilan, Mongolian dancers MO Song Ma Korean dancer Cui Meishan and Tibetan singers before Once Dolma.
Simply put, the big song and dance theme is “Only the Communist Party of China Mao Zedong can save China, must go with them. In order to interpret this theme, the dance scene, including before and after 1949.
I remember 1949
that theater is named for the Chinese people to stand up “, starting in the mixed chorus” Ode to the Motherland “, and subsequently for dance” steel flower splash “(name not very exact),” harvest song “, mixed chorus “we must liberate Taiwan”, mixed chorus “beloved Chairman Mao, the red sun of our hearts,” Treble Choirs “We are the successors of communism”
Finally Cantata “world proletariat to unite to end. “Red Sun” concert stage as well as the chorus stood on either side of the stage (it is said that they are university choir members).
The costumes of white, blue skirt or trousers, and the atmosphere is solemn and devout. This song starting at the high male voice: “Dear Chairman Mao, the red sun of our hearts.”
Followed by gentle female voice “Whether we stand on what positions, who are shining your light no matter where we go, always close at your side. “At this time tunes quite lyrical, then sonorous mixed voices:” follow you, we Tasui to how much of a storm, follow you … “.
This is a real chorus, not singing and song, but the big song and dance to Another Worshiping God climax (the opening of sunflower dance is a climax), then the formulation in addition to the great savior
There are four great “in two – mentors and leaders. Later, during the Cultural Revolution, popular and beloved Chairman Mao “this song is not the same song, that song spread very widely, but the lyrics are too straightforward, and this can be a first if the removal of politicized lyrics,
Haipo the .Treble Choirs “We are the successors of communism” beginning the Young Pioneers drum trombonist running start on either side of the stage to the back of the stage.
The few drum trumpeter higher, I guess is a junior high school student. The sound of the drums, the two the Young Pioneers male standard-bearer standard-bearer with four female nursing out from both sides of the stage, the chorus followed.
Four retaining standard-bearer is singled out from the many girl is tall beauty, a memorable! Probably in the 1980s,
one of which I have encountered on the subway. She is still black bushy eyebrows, fair-skinned, the mouth of a small mole on the most compelling. At that time, I really want to ask her: “play” East is Red “, you are not the right of Flag.
Later in the Cultural Revolution, was introduced, my mother received a student named car Kin. First came to class, I recognized that she was the standard-bearer of a guard in the “East is Red”, a question is really good. Just northeast MACROSUPPLY queue jumping back to Beijing with no employment, learning vocal music from my mother, she joined an army song and dance ensemble.
When the standard-bearer and guard the standard-bearer stood still on both sides of the stage, Treble chorus was unfolding back arrow type from the center of the stage.
The first row of the first person to lead the team to the center of the stage, that stage of a child is too big for himself, so I only need to be happy with the team. From the Central Philharmonic conductor Qiuli uncle, I was impressed when they get to “love the motherland and the people”, he gestures to swing our heads also will swing around, which is the only body in the whole song action.
Children’s Chorus is completed, we need to unite in the “world proletariat” to play again.
That scene appeared in Asia, Africa and Latin America are significantly clothing, tall actor blackened face, make-up into the Negro.
When they get to the last paragraph, our young performers stick with paper flowers run came to power, the flowers dedicated to Asia, Africa and Latin America, “
a friend. I remember the lyrics of the song: “Mountain linked to mountain, sea and linked to the sea, the world proletariat unite!” When the chorus sings overwhelming air of, as I kind of audience heard boundless passion.
After a rehearsal, Zhou Enlai took office met actor. At that time the weather has been cold, he wore a gray uniform standing behind me with the great actor handshake conversation. I’m curious, turned to touch the clothes of Zhou Enlai. His clothes were not wool, feels light and slippery. I just touch finish, Zhou Enlai, she turned around. I was very afraid, and immediately turned away, pretending nothing happened.
Suddenly to hear Zhou said: “The kids, you stand to my side.” Like I moved to the side, but still afraid to turn around, only to feel his hand on my shoulder, and then flash several times.
Probably eleven, Mao Zedong also to watch the show. The show finished, he took to the stage with actor photo, but he did not like a week, as talk with the actor, the stay time is much shorter than Zhou Enlai.
During rehearsals and performances, at 3-4 pm on car reaches the Great Hall of the People after, shall be brought to a specific area. I do not know the area in which not know the hall name, but I still remember some of the furnishings, such as a hall stands a small, exquisitely carved Tiananmen Square, outside covered with glass. I asked my teacher, that is what to do, the teacher said that is an ore of rock salt.
The circle is a mahogany the Chamber wall of our climate field seats. Sit in designated seats, we began to change costumes. The formal performance autumn and winter, girls costumes white shirt pink strap dress, white shoes and socks. Change your clothes after each person you want to replace him hair padded neatly stacked below in mahogany seat.
Background discipline was strict, not only required to maintain clean and quiet, even to go to the toilet require queuing.
Happy picnic after the show, each table has two strong flour bread, this is the first time I eat white bread. Car was scheduling seems to have a problem, after the end of a performance, we have to wait until late at night in the City Hall foyer, a lot of people sleeping on the marble floor. For young children, staying up late is excited. Performances delay a lot of class, my arithmetic teacher so angry. She is a short hair, bad cop thick lips of young teachers, quite not too much afraid of the tiger of the air, hair on fire to the table looks Mountain rang, and angry, she gave us arranged more arithmetic operations.
It was October 16, 1964,
all participating who went to the Great Hall of the People. Previously, we already know that Mao Zedong to come. Change position to line up outside City Hall, a girl behind me and I, I never thought that she had to stand in front of me.
Inside City Hall, our pupils are divided into two rows. Front row sat on the floor, back row, sitting on a small stool, my seat after a row of seats with white sleeve. I remember that afternoon, Mao Zedong first entered the field, followed by Liu Shaoqi and Zhou Enlai.
Following these three entrants is not filed in, spaced a little distance, sometimes two to go together, but Jiang Qing approach alone. Her face is very white, she is very slim, wearing black-rimmed glasses, Wai scarf. Surrounded scarf because no one in the room, it is surprised but impressed, but also because her hair is very short, initially I even do not know the gender of the person.
Guo Lanying, Wang Kun solo in “The East is Red” minority actors standing after Mao Zedong holing his seat. Mao Zedong had to talk to them. Sit in the primary school with my classmates before Mao Zedong and Zhu De, named Gao, mentioned earlier the car the Kin is sitting in front of Jiang Qing.
The hair of the right of sitting Zhu De, then wu, Deng Xiaoping. The left of Mao and Liu Shaoqi, Zhou Enlai, Peng Zhen, Jiang Qing, Liu Shaoqi on the left etc.. For a soldier sitting on a chair behind me, the Cultural Revolution, he had appearances was overthrown, and later as “Yang Yufu” one, so I know he is Yang Chengwu. Yang Chengwu kindly ask me where to study, What’s your name, asked over and said something cliches “study hard and make progress every day”. When all the leaders sat, large camera circling a week, to start a group photo. After the group photo, Zhou Enlai to leave the seat, went to the center of the field, he announced that China’s first atomic bomb was successfully detonated. Then I totally do not know what that is, ask the kids around, they do not know, I do not know who is passed over: “That’s a bomb, so we follow and cheer for a bomb explosion.
The people who participated in that photo depending on pay and twelve group photo. Which one to use genuine photographic paper, but genuine includes only that part of the participants, and other printed in the magazine paper is the photo of all participants.
These two pictures are rolled up into a rectangular cardboard tubes. Paper tube for the dark red tube surface the photo red on yellow “State the Peking Zhaoxiangguan turnaround – Beijing polishing factory 285, telephone 75.0081.
My mother also wrote with a pen “Showtime participate in the National Day 15th anniversary Oriental red, October 15, 1964 (the date is incorrect).
In 2009, in the old letter old photos, I came back to find it, to see with a pen on Liu Shaoqi, Peng Zhen and Yang Chengwu like playing fork, is likely to be me during the Cultural Revolution for. In the picture, the row where I captured rather ambiguous, because when the technology must be there to switch the lens, and the next day the newspaper published the photo the boy up and I swapped seats.
Big song and dance performances continue until at least the end of 1964, after the beginning of a movie. Said that Mao Zedong believed then China is not strong enough,
the movie deleted Mixed Chorus “We must liberate Taiwan”, “beloved Chairman Mao, the red sun of our hearts” Children’s Chorus “We are the successors of communism” chorus “full World proletarians together. ” Such a change, all the actors are messengers for the front row audience.
Actors as the audience, once the shooting began, we can not go back and can not move because of watching too many, we almost learned all the songs will be back many lines, such as “the sky is dark days and a black depths , the suffering of the Chinese people, ah …. “the wear point changjie line, say goodbye to all the folks beheading does not matter, as long as the doctrine true ….”
Then, after all, young, closed inculcate, that do not know just experienced the era of the Great Famine, can not falsifiable. Sometimes too boring, fiddle with the radio equipment of the table, we estimated that the many fiddle bad. Wrapped up, we have to all stand to shake the audience at the back paper flowers, then people see movies that is large-scale music and dance epic “The East is Red”.
“Red memories, I have little interest in a note of this period of historical facts in order to avoid lost.

Dream around haunting Nanjing
Posted on July 8, 2006 by Du Xinxin
• Du Xinxin •
Hyacinth wrote “cherished Nanjing”, and she a.
The winter of 1972, the six of us together by train to Nanjing. That is the evening of the year. Why did you choose in the evening of the year, I do not remember.
the mother went to the cadre school. Go cadre school before the unit requires the family to move their household accompanying. My mother is very literal-minded, usually not large dealings with people simply do not know the rigors of the hukou system, she relocated. Cadre school with his parents to the children, 18-year-old youth, also a two-year-old a child.
The cadre school set up a primary school and junior high school, we go to school there, but the labor time than learning time. Less than two years, and the kids my age, even if the junior high school graduation, was assigned to the cadre school plant.
In the summer of 1972,
the cadre school disbanded parents back to their original units because of the working relationship, and we have the cadre school workers, there is no cadre school, Beijing was not any of the accounts, you have nowhere to go.
Mother hopes to get the sympathy of the unit and the household registration at Beijing, hoping to spare. And she went to them, “I only mother and daughter, can not deal with as a special case?”
The answer is no. Six months, we’ve been to I do not know how much Yamen begged. However, even if it went to ask, I can not stay in Beijing.
Later, with the same fate of children in some of the parents to return to power, we placed the subsidiary factory in Nanjing.
Train at night. Noon, my mother and I lay in bed, I saw her eyes closed, tears streaming down a little bit. I have for many years seen her tears. I hold it, let the tears stream down more nothing Baotoutongku.
At that time, this separation than the mountains and the countryside or a lot better.
The young man, after all, young. A ride, a companion slapstick, worry-home light. Passing Tianjin, a male student to go buy the buns, came back seating to be accounted for.
Time people are really honest, do not know to play disturb. I was the lightest, I sat down on the coffee table, and spent the night.
Morning to Nanjing, the odd cold.
The factory sent a large truck to pick us up. All the way through the Xinjiekou, too Zhongshan Gate into Yudao. My adult life have never been to the South, I feel very fresh – so cold actually shop big open, totally unlike Beijing indoor fires doorway clutching a dirty cotton curtain.
In fact, these stores are not just big open shop, rather, even the door panels are removed, Zhitong Tong to see the store. One and one store, arranged in the streets, which sell glance. Winter streets,
Platanus leaves fall out quite Depression, but the colored goods store, especially decorative mirror shop people feel very lively.
We were assigned to a different shop.
Assigned and related to the background of their respective parents. Because this plant is a subordinate military factory, so the logistics department in particular, most of the children of factory tube portion assigned to the workshop in a white coat, and the other two were assigned to machine repair workshop.
In machine repair shop, I have two instructors, one from Shanghai, Shaanxi to dependents. That Shanghai woman I was 4-5 years older, looked white, oval face, eyes sort of a small, slim, well-known beauty of the whole plant.
Nanjing, especially chasing Shanghai’s fashionable (I do not know whether it is now or so). This girl to lead the new trend of the whole plant clothing.
Clothes then color patterns are very limited, but the people of Shanghai always on the collar or the trouser legs conjure tricks, looks is not the same and the people of Nanjing. I heard that she had in the military arts when dance students, after the exit due to the spin-sickness.
The factory two shifts, a group of eight hours, tedious work. Spent the day in the upper and lower parts, process measurement.
Leave the factory several years, shaking machine handle on the fixture, with the caliper measurement repeatability action will appear in my dreams.
More interesting is that after heavy rains, some crayfish do not know where from crossing the road, we have to catch. The workshop behind kind of a broad bean, often steal two mature after Xiaye Ban cook supper.
Also planted in the area, where many gardenia flowers, plucked hanging mosquito nets, the fragrance of an account.
Nanjing’s really cold winter seem to find a slightly warmer place. Sleep at night, how do not want to got into the cold bed poles do not want to get up the morning, the towel was frozen.
Nanjing Xia Tianqi hot, hot no place to hide and no place to hide, the night three two cold shower, can print out the silhouette of sweat on the mats. July-August, most look forward to is a typhoon.
A typhoon, will be able to cool a few days. A typhoon, the city’s power outage, what do not. I’m wearing a headset, suddenly from transistor radios to hear, “This is the Voice of America..” –
Voice indulge in the South, but also to enunciate. Moscow Radio …… “- voice stiff, strange sounds (Note 1). “According to the Central News Agency reported …” tone prettily soft. There are some very strange “how much of the corn, wheat, how much money ……” I hid in a mosquito net, listening to the night, and they knew this Divine addition another world.
The time for the “plot”, “free market” to limit very strict. The northern food market in addition to cabbage, potato is the radish, cabbage is often rotten devastated.
The thickness of the grain the quantitative not say, pork, cooking oil, sesame paste, also have a quantitative, even if the quantitative, but also often have to row the Dae Jang team, pork white and more red and less. I first came to Gwanghwamun, see where the free market is really surprised. I long in the north, never seen in the winter vegetables.
Basket filled with green vegetables on the free market in Nanjing, pick, and leaping pink shrimp, emissions flashing silver fish and red and more white and less pork the people also common Xinlimei. ” radish whittled lovely flowers.
Shanghai people often disdain Nanjing human Nanjing radish “, but I saw so much good, can not help but learn a Nanjing, then obediently throat in the boom.”
The free market impressed me the most is the “Wang egg. I do not know, “Wang written right pronunciation should be good. The so-called “Wang egg” which has hatched chick “egg”. Know the contents of the eggs, I feel a little sick.
Can also stand up to be curious, to buy a. Knocking on eggshells, there is a thin layer of feathers, or black or yellow, peel chicken feathers is a basic shape of the chicks. It should be acknowledged that it is really delicious.
In addition to the free market, the streets of Nanjing, there are many snack bar, preserved meat shop. December belly bunch of thin the Banya nude in public, grow fat and a bunch of smiling at me. I was very greedy, but lazy.
Fortunately, I have a very good girlfriend, just to have the two necessary conditions for good cooking: “greedy and not lazy. She often cook for me to eat, hungry greedy solution many years.
Ah, Menghun pull around Nanjing, the most pull around December belly thin Banya, that cruel, “Wang egg”.
In a boring day, most looking forward to Sunday. On this day, we can be good food, but also go hand in hand to the Mausoleum, Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum, Confucius Temple, Xuanwu Lake and meihuashanensis,.
Remain in the memory of the Nanjing beauty left the Mausoleum of the cedar.
Those great cedar, quite groaning grounded sense. The green foliage expand, vertical to the ground, such as fan inside can hide behind the people. Northern pine large in the canopy, the wind came, the crown that is moving, shaking badly, and cedar even if the swing, but also slightly restrained manner. I even think the North and the South, Greenfield, sounds not much different.
My factory in Nanjing, relatively high wages. The first year of the apprenticeship monthly 18 yuan, 20 yuan, 22 yuan in the third year. The Acts, a worker was 35.5, and the two workers was 41.9.
When money is worth a hair more money can be a meal in the cafeteria. Because of high wages, where young workers are mostly some history. A large allocation of children are the children of the Nanjing Military Region, demobilization or coming from school.
Some demobilized soldiers from the higher authorities of the home and more in the Jervois Wuxi Shanghai area. Another dial children Shanghai technical school graduates, there are several children of farmers Nanjing suburbs, but they are the children of the commune and brigade cadres.
Not affiliated with any wave of children, young workers, the multi and factory some leaders have a special relationship, into the factory, escape to the mountains and the countryside.
Factory many young workers, they have their own circles, find the object more in that range. Provides apprentice is not allowed to fall in love, but it was just talking about it.
Rural young workers in preparation for marriage. In order to get married, to the young workers in rural areas every meal to eat five cents of diesel vegetables to save enough money to buy the votes allocated large wardrobe, double bed.
The cafeteria at the time, the most expensive dish is 2 cents Shaorou.
Tedious work in a workshop, who is interested in who mostly can not escape the sharp eyes of the people.
Generally, a female interesting man, often taking the time to go the “station Chuangzi”. The so-called the station Chuangzi, is to the woman operating the machine next to chatting, but also to help move things or something.
A tall electrician, often came to my master’s Shanghai. The people who spent time in the factory all know this saying, “tight turner, slow fitter, slovenly electricians.” Said the electrician is the cadre children, the father, who is chairman of the CPPCC Shandong Province.
Since slovenly electrician, he will have more time to station master Chuangzi. In a small factory, find the object also speak perfect match.
The beautiful multi marry a high threshold, always been the case.
Gradually, some cadres of the Nanjing Military Region, the children began to us girls from Beijing to launch an attack.
One of our longer face red teeth white, black hair and eyebrows, black eyelashes, a pair of confused eyes. She particularly rosy lips, huge lower lip. Do not know in the past, and now know that it is very sexy lips. Then chased her about a strengthening classes.
Addition to stand her Chuangzi, often to residences, asking for her, one of them in particular perseverance. Girls first pay any attention to him, he was dallying. Later, she “hated” the young man said.
The beginning of men and women, male the female slightly invade behavior, woman love to say “hate”.
Such dialogue is not only when popular culture or even Kingdoms 1980s movie.
But say “hate”, the cheeky shy of the color of the woman. The woman’s duplicity is evident. My friend said “hate” cheeky detestation of color. The young man so in love with her, and simply can not tell a shy or disgust, continue to chase.
The woman was tired, his bombers to go out. When he went downstairs, Doutou is the foot-washing water pot – Well, dead heart, you na! Later, this woman soon married, she is among us to marry first. This year I returned to Beijing to see her, in addition to a little wrinkle, good looks still Jiao, do not see when the grandmother. I asked her how so soon marry, she replied, “I did not marry, how to do, endlessly.”
Legitimate birth families of cadres young people are vigorously love sports, when the legitimate from the rural young workers live frugally preparation for marriage, there is a quiet group, rather embarrassing, does not introduce attention alive.
They are from Shanghai the male technical school students. Them years to over 20, and some probably have been 25 years old. Many of them have been doing transferred back to Shanghai dream, some of whom even every month once ran to Shanghai.
They look down on the people of Nanjing, that the very soil, but they can not return to Shanghai, Although many people have been approaching marriage age, but all alone.
The Nanjing people tell me, they do not look straight line of pants, they returned to Shanghai are sleeping in the ground floor, most only a pair of pants press it under the pillow every night, and the next day wear out.
These Shanghai out of a tall, thin young man, it is very beautiful. The reason I say that he is beautiful, because the girls are not beautiful. Watery eyes, long eyelashes, angular face, straight Greek nose, his body can do a ballet dancer.
His hands were delicate, slender and white, although he is a mechanic, I have never seen in his fingernails black. He also wore stovepipe pants, but a little unlike in Shanghai hooligan. Shanghai people, he rarely return to Shanghai, seems to have no friends. I heard people say bad that he was born and his mother was the mistress of the capitalists.
I do not know since when this young man in Shanghai close to me, but I noticed nothing. At that time, my mother would like to move to Nanjing and not, I have determined to be transferred back to Beijing.
The government has just issued a “a children returned to their parents’ policy, but Beijing’s account must be” a one into, so I became a telegraph pole family.
The so-called wire rod family is to swap information go to paste it into the street utility poles. Rest days I rock on the street, no one wants to tune from Beijing to Nanjing.
How old is this a great man than I, but very shy. He and I, the south and the north, background completely different, limited common topics Besides, I also quite a good impression of the people of Shanghai. His station my Chuangzi, I would often make fun of him, “you people of Shanghai pants line can cut radish, hair confused shine light, flies up are slipping.”
“You Shanghai woman, a young man run out of the water slide. Marry a few years, all changed the morning, hanging a nightgown, Ji pulled slippers, ran down the street quarrel for a two cents feathers vegetables …
“He was very white, and one I make fun Required blush. Despite this, however, he will come to me. See my hard work and sometimes, he murmured, “I can help you remove Come to the workpiece,”
I was in a good era, the heart said, “You look fragile, but also to help me? “I am on the Beijing dialect top of him,” Come on, stay to your side. Zan myself into. “
Should be recognized that this man looks very attractive, but at that time, I am realistic, since the need to go home with her mother, why should anyone entangled, and mobilization of thing makes me very upset.
Although I find the swap object, but the people of the Personnel Section or stuck I hold. Then I finally understand the trouble, this personnel cadres want women uniform set of officers. I for this set of uniforms and a large head, and later my mother managed to get a set. That guy received uniforms, gall ax to grind.
However, after the exercise of the fields and factories, I have not a fuel-efficient lights. I let the guy not only did not succeed, I do obediently procedures.
Get the transfer procedures, I began to pack. He was no other person in the dorm room. He said, “I heard you were going to help you a spoke, he held out his slender white hands to help me bundle box.
I said, “almost all the things right, or to sit down and talk it.”
I get some water melon seeds entertain him. I do not like Ke Guazi often knock unclean, but like to watch others knock.
The crisp sounds so I feel that something is being separated. That tedious harsh era, seeds and cigarettes, you can narrow the distance, relaxed atmosphere, said a little gossip.
Man of Ke Guazi or smoke are also less able to see a person’s personality and upbringing. He’s very good-looking hand, picks up a small melon seeds sent to the mouth, mouth open small, slightly moved a few skillfully melon seeds and shells separate, lightweight to spit the shell, clean, but not Any traces of liquid.
I opened my mouth, “Little X, your family is doing what? I see you rarely go back to Shanghai.”
