Chapter 1 Fighting

On June 25, 1978, in a remote small mountain village in Shangdang City, Shanxi Province.

A boy wearing a washed yellow and white shirt was lying lazily on the haystack, still holding a dog’s tail grass in his mouth. The bottom of the body is a pair of gray trousers. It has long been invisible to the original color, or the color after washing.

There are two huge patches on the knees, and a pair of cloth shoes are worn on the feet, but the shoes have already opened up a big hole with difficulty.

Jiang Xiaobai is a 21st century undergraduate graduate who lives in the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up.

The original owner of his body was born in an ordinary worker’s family in Longcheng, the capital of Shanxi province, with the same name and surname as Jiang Xiaobai. Some time ago, he graduated from junior high school, and his second brother Jiang Zijian graduated from high school. According to the policy at this time, the family must have One who knows went to the mountains and the countryside.

As a result, his academic performance was poor, and he was sent to the mountain and countryside by his father who had been fighting with a group of factory children all day long.

Then I gave myself a chance to come here, saying whether it was borrowing a corpse to resurrect it, or saying it was a journey.

Sometimes, even with the memory of the host, Jiang Xiaobai couldn’t tell whether he was Jiang Xiaobai in the 21st century or this Jiang Xiaobai in the 1970s.

Although Jiang Xiaobai occasionally drank too much in his previous life, he once lamented that he was born at a bad time, if he was born in that golden age full of opportunities and changes, he would have been a rich generation and so on.

But he had already fully enjoyed the fruits of reform and opening up, but he never thought about going back to this era.

In the 1970s, I needed someone named uncle after 80s. Is it appropriate for you to let me travel to this age? Jiang Xiaobai stared at the sky blankly.

Parents, lovers, brothers, friends, classmates…

Suddenly disappeared without a trace, as if those experiences were like a dream. But Jiang Xiaobai would rather believe that the current experience is a dream.

I am still living in the 21st century, with my parents who love me, my lover, my brothers who are inseparable, the traffic coming and going, and the city with colorful neon lights.

Even if you can take another breath of car exhaust!

“Goo, gooo, gooo,” Jiang Xiaobai yelled from his stomach. It has been a whole month since he came to this era.

“Brother Xiaobai, Brother Xiaobai.” Hearing someone calling his name from a distance, a young man ran over.

“What’s the matter? I’m so anxious. How many times have I told you to calm down, do you understand? Not calm will cause pain.”

After seeing the person, Jiang Xiaobai said without hesitation. The person who ran over was named Wang Xiaojun. His parents and Jiang Xiaobai’s parents both worked in the same factory. He was the second child in the family. Like Jiang Xiaobai, his father’s job was not his turn. He succeeded and was sent to the countryside.

“Brother Xiaobai, it’s okay, it’s okay, Liu Feng and the others are fighting with the people in the village. Go and take a look.” Wang Xiaojun said breathlessly, looking at Jiang Xiaobai’s eyes full of haste.

When Jiang Xiaobai heard it, he also got up from the haystack. Liu Feng was also an educated youth who jumped in and went to the countryside with Jiang Xiaobai.

“Where are you? Take me there quickly.” Jiang Xiaobai said, pulling Wang Xiaojun towards the village, and asked as he ran: “Why did Liu Feng and the others clashed with the people in the village?”

In fact, it is not surprising that Jiang Xiaobai knew that the people who went up to the mountains and the countryside to jump into the countryside had conflicts with the villagers.

Most of the people who come to the countryside to jump in the queue are people from the cities. There are various classes, births, and backgrounds. Wanting to integrate them into the countryside is not something that can be solved by shouting slogans.

“I heard that it was because the work points that were recorded for our people in the know were wrong this month, and then Liu Feng went to the village accountant to get the theory, and then they quarreled.” Wang Xiaojun took the time to introduce the situation to Jiang Xiaobai.

Work points is a term before the implementation of the “household contract system”.

At this time, the “big pot of rice” was implemented in the countryside. To put it simply, the land belonged to the village. When it came time to work, everyone went to work, and then the village cadres recorded work points for those who did the work.

Depending on the output of the village, this work point can be exchanged for money or food. It is a unique product of this era.

Jiang Xiaobai and Wang Xiaojun came to the scene while they were talking. A dozen educated youths were fighting with the villagers.

Although there are few people in the knowledge, the young and energetic are not serious enough to start. On the other hand, although the people in the village are large and strong, they all start well, afraid of accidents, and the two sides fought equally.

When Jiang Xiaobai arrived, the village secretary and the village chief were leading a fight, but the insiders did not listen to the village secretary and the village chief.

“Xiaobai, please quickly persuade them to stop, and if you continue to fight, something will happen,” Huang Zhongfu, the village secretary, saw Jiang Xiaobai coming, and said quickly.

Among the educated youths in the Jianhua brigade, the largest number of educated youths were Jiang Xiaobai, who came from the factory from Longcheng, and Jiang Xiaobai was the older brother of the factory children in Longcheng before passing through. Therefore, among the educated youths of the Jianhua brigade, Jiang Xiaobai’s words are still useful.

“The party secretary, it’s all like this, it’s probably not useful for me to talk.” Jiang Xiaobai said with a wry smile. In fact, if you follow Jiang Xiaobai’s own ideas, it is now at the end of June 1978. After this time, you will be able to immediately Back to the city, when the reform and opening up, that is the time to wait.

But now Liu Feng and the others are already making trouble. As a member of the educated youth, they must not be able to sit crookedly. They have to find a way to gain some benefits for the educated youth.

“Xiaobai, let’s discuss something. Fighting will definitely not solve the problem. I will criticize the accounting dog in a while.”

The village secretary Huang Zhongfu looked at Jiang Xiaobai and said affirmatively that he used to have a good impression of this white young man. He didn’t cause troubles like other educated youths. Now he found that this product is not a fuel-efficient lamp.

“Okay,” Jiang Xiaobai looked at the village secretary Huang Zhongfu and replied. He turned around and grabbed a white porcelain basin in the hands of a vigorous aunt who was watching the show, and then picked up a stone from the ground.

In the aunt’s shocked eyes, the white porcelain basin made a “clang clang” sound, and the white paint on the white porcelain basin splashed.

“Don’t fight, don’t fight,” Jiang Xiaobai shouted. The educated youth heard Jiang Xiaobai’s voice and stopped. The village secretary Huang Zhongfu also hurriedly led people to stop the villagers.

“Brother Xiaobai, they bully…”

“Xiao Bai, this group of people is too much. They don’t count the work points for us, and they curse people…”

“Brother Xiaobai…” a group of educated youths began to speak, enthusiastically speaking, a group of people who could grab three points without reason, let alone feel wronged this time.

“The party secretary, these educated young ladies are not the East…” The village accountant Goudan also hurriedly opened a complaint with Huang Zhongfu, but before he could finish his words, the village secretary Huang Zhongfu glared and shut up. Huang Zhongfu turned his head to Jiang Xiao White Road.

“Xiaobai, then, let’s go to the team office to talk about something.”

“Okay, then go to the team office.” Jiang Xiaobai nodded and took the lead to walk towards the team office. Behind him, Wang Xiaojun, Liu Feng and other educated youths quickly followed.

“Let’s go away, don’t look at it, there is nothing good about it. When I started working, I didn’t see you being so active. Then I surrounded one person and deducted another job.”

The village secretary watched a group of villagers who were watching the excitement and was preparing to go to the team headquarters, and suddenly shouted.

As soon as I heard that work points were to be deducted, the crowd watching the excitement suddenly dispersed. Several of the young people who had just been fighting wanted to slip away, but they were caught by Huang Zhongfu.

“Are you all right? Are there any injuries?” Jiang Xiaobai asked as he walked, looking at the dozens of educated youths behind him.

Although I didn’t use any tools in the fight just now, some noses and corners of the mouth were bleeding.

“Bah,” Liu Feng spit out the blood-stained spit in his mouth, wiped a nosebleed and said: “Brother Xiaobai, we are all right, but the dog egg is such a bully. Many of us are on this month. We have more than 20 workers, but the most memorable of this product is 13 of them. We went to him. He even said that we didn’t work hard and could only give us half of the work point every day. It’s better not to go to work for a few female educated youths. It’s not bad to be able to work for us.”

Liu Feng said bitterly, the faces of several female educated youths in the team were also full of unhappiness.

“Brother Xiaobai, if the village secretary can’t make up our work points for a while, we will go to the commune to make trouble in the afternoon.” Wang Xiaojun said from the side.

“Wait a while and see how Huang Zhongfu handles it.” Jiang Xiaobai nodded and said, although this year, he started to let the educated youth who went to the mountains and the countryside return home.

However, if the specific policies are implemented, if you say that they are not good, you will have to go back next year. If you have to stay in this place for a year or a half, you must not show weakness, otherwise, you will have a hard time in the future.
