If you do not dance you have no purpose. And we don’t keep things here that have no purpose. You see, your fight for survival starts right now. You don’t want to be judged? You won’t be. You don’t think you’re strong enough? You are. You’re afraid. Don’t be. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight.
In 2013, we went back to Yongfeng in 2013 with Lu Yuping’s whole
family. We reserved two private rooms in a restaurant in the city for
our friends. Our room was mostly Ma Liping’s former students. There
were about ten of them, and they were now working in the city. Lu
Yuping’s room was mostly his former colleagues.
When I went to his room to propose a toast, someone came up to me, and
said, “I was a sent-down youth in your neighboring village, Chanbei.
My last name is Liu.”
I was confused. “Your village is half Liu, half Zhang. But, from our
village, only Cui Yinghui went to Chanpei…”
He quickly clarified, “My father was Liu Kaixuan.”
It all came back to me. “Oh, right! Your father used to teach. During
the cultural revolution, he was labeled a counter-revolutionary and
sent down to Chanbei, with his five or six sons. Everyone in your
family was bigger than you. And at the end of every year, your family
would have gotten the most work credits, and the villagers were always
jealous of you.”
Little Liu said, “After the Cultural Revolution, my father went back
to Yongfeng Middle School to teach. As a sent-down youth I went to
work under Lu Yuping.”
I asked him, “Speaking of Chanbei, were you there when we had the
fight between Libeishang and Chanbei?”
“Yes, I was there. You won and we lost.”
I laughed, raising my glass. “Nowadays nobody can believe that such a
scholarly-seeming person as myself would hit someone; you’ll have to
be my witness. Cheers!”
