The poor scholar went to the banquet and was neglected, returned home and shamed his father-in-law
During the reign of Emperor Renzong of the Northern Song Dynasty, there was a handsome young man in Liukeng Village who was eager to learn and over 20 years old, called Dong Dunyi. Because he came from a famous family, his ancestors were from a scholarly family, and he married the third daughter of Zeng Bogu, a rich man in Bakou Village, Yongfeng County. However, due to the early death of his father Shizhong, Dunyi's family became increasingly poor soon. After a few years of marriage, Dun Yi almost reached the point where he had no food for the winter and no clothes to keep out the cold. He was a famous poor scholar in the village at that time. Just as the days became more and more embarrassing, the father-in-law was celebrating his 60th birthday again. The couple did not know what to do, so they had to bite the bullet and borrow money from the neighbors to buy gifts, and went to the father-in-law together in coarse cloth and old clothes.
When they came to the door of the father-in-law, the father-in-law was welcoming each and everyone of his friends and relatives with a smile. The Dunyi and his wife bowed respectfully on the ground, and said in unison, "Congratulations to the health and auspiciousness of the father." Zeng Weng raised his face all of a sudden, glanced at them silently, then turned around and walked straight into the house. The couple suddenly trembled in their hearts, inconvenient to make a sound, and then entered the house. The father-in-law's family watched them come in, turned a blind eye, ignored them, and Dunyi's wife immediately put the congratulations on the table.
When it was time for the banquet, Dunyi was arranged by the steward to drink with the servants in the stable far away from the mansion. Although Dunyi was indignant and didn't know the taste of food, it was inconvenient to express his emotions. At this time, the gongs and drums sounded, and the wife in another place went to watch it. I saw that the children of Liyuan were performing their skills in the courtyard in front of the hall. The hall was decorated with lanterns and birthday plaques. They all sat in the high hall, accompany the guests to drink and watch the play, but did not see Dunyi. So, his wife searched for the dining room, and without seeing Dun Yi, she immediately asked, "Where is the man in my family?" During the questioning, someone said that there are also several seats in the stable. His wife looked forward suspiciously, and Dun Yi was really sitting among the servants. Suddenly, he became angry and couldn't bear the coldness any longer. leave. As a result, there was a commotion, many people left to watch, the order was in chaos, Zeng Weng looked at a loss.
When he returned home, Dunyi always had a sense of anger in his heart, and vowed to win glory for himself and his family, so he worked hard to study, often forgetting the cold and summer days and nights. The wife took the initiative to provoke the burden of family life and worked hard day and night. A few years have passed, and I have made great progress in my studies. However, seeing the scientific examination approaching day by day, Dun Yi couldn't help but feel worried. One night, in his sleep, Dunyi saw an old Taoist priest saying to him: "The kudzu vines wrap around the waist, cook porridge by the river; when the snails open their eyes, the children and grandchildren will be blessed." After Dunyi realized what he meant, he went to his grandfather (Dong Qi). The snail-shaped vines in the burial place are cut to loosen the soil, so that "the snails open their eyes" to pray for the care of the ancestors and spirits, and to pin their thoughts on it.
Before the exam, his wife even took out the only piece of jewelry, a hairpin, as a silver tael in order to collect enough money for him to take the exam. Dun Yi looked at the haggard and hopeful expression of his good wife, was grateful, packed his bags, and set off for the exam. His wife prayed for him silently, guarded his poor home, and waited for his good news day by day.
It is said that Dunyi rushed to take the test and took the waterway to Wujiang to take a bamboo raft. It took several days to reach Hongcheng (now Nanchang). This time, I took the test in Dunyi, and things went as I wished, and my heart was lifted. In the following year, he entered Bianjing (now Kaifeng, Henan) for the meeting, the palace test and the title of Jinshi. Many years of prayers have finally come true. At this time, Dunyi's bitter heart is stirring with waves of happiness, and he is so excited that he can't sleep for several nights, but he did not write a book and tell his family.
Dun Yi, the official inspector of the censor, will soon be ordered to patrol the south of the Yangtze River. Dunyi was going to go home to worship his ancestors by the way. It happened that his father-in-law (Zeng Weng) had a rare celebration in the near future, so he should go to celebrate. Recalling the scene of being neglected at his father-in-law's house ten years ago, Dunyi couldn't help feeling filled with emotion. He thought, this time, he must give him some stimulation to persuade the world not to dislike the poor and love the rich, and not to be snobbish. So, on the day of his father-in-law's birthday, he instructed his entourage and guards to secretly berth the official ship in the harbor near Bakou Village, Yongfeng, where his father-in-law lived. Family.
Father-in-law's 70th birthday, the celebration is more than the year. Relatives, friends, gentlemen and officials of all sizes came to congratulate. In order to increase the festive atmosphere of the birthday, the Zeng family specially built a stage and invited the children of Liyuan to help. The father-in-law smiled and greeted him and sent him away. When he saw Dunyi coming, he still looked like the past. Before Dunyi could open his mouth, he said, "It's not that you tried your best to start your career, I must be in high school, why are you still so poor, these ten years you What did you do?" Dunyi replied, "My son-in-law is really ashamed. We have talked about some tricks for acting, but I have no other skills." The father-in-law squinted and said contemptuously, "Well, you can go on stage and act, and let your relatives and friends do it. Look at you so poor and sour." Dun Yi continued, "I must take the stage when three 'cannons' are fired in unison." Father-in-law Yi Yun. His wife, who had come to celebrate her birthday long ago, looked on, her lungs were about to explode. Dun Yi looked at his wife's condition, and hurriedly ran over, touched his wife, opened his tunic, and revealed a corner of the official uniform. His wife was overjoyed when she saw it. After a while, three "cannons" sounded, and the good show began...
The guards heard the sound of the "cannon" and rushed ashore. As soon as Dunyi came to power, bursts of gongs and shouts sounded in front of the door. The guards held up "Silence" and "Avoidance" signs and embraced a colorful machine. Official sedan chair to the door. This is Dun Yi taking off his robe and showing his official robe. A guard came to salute and said, "Please get on the sedan chair." , and knelt down together and begged Lord Censor to forgive the sin of ignorance. The father-in-law was shocked into a cold sweat, and with a look of shame on his face, he hurriedly stepped forward to give a salute, and said: "My good son-in-law, please go to the hall for a drink as a token of congratulations." Dun Yi said, "Thank you, father-in-law, for your kindness. Due to the limited time, I will I have to go home quickly with my wife, I am sorry to accompany you this time, and I will take care of you when you are on your 80th birthday." He and his wife boarded the sedan and set off, blared the gong to clear the way, and a group of people went straight to Liukeng.
Zeng Weng stood in front of the door, staring blankly, embarrassed in front of everyone. Thinking of what was wrong with Dunyi in the past, Zeng Weng's heart was always heavy. People talked a lot in private, which greatly reduced the face of Mr. Zeng, who disliked the poor and loved the rich.
