True story “Childhood. That Thrilling Night”
The moonlight was beautiful that night…My four sisters were eleven, and I was seven.In a moonlit night, I was suddenly woken up by my sister and asked me to go with her to hunt hogweed.I yawned and asked: Where to?It’s the middle of the night.Is the elder sister say: “zha still be big midnight!It’s getting late. It’ll be dawn soon.”I took her word for it, got dressed and got up.Together we took the basket and went out.In the moonlight, we seemed to walk into a sweet potato field.The sister looked in the basket and said, Ah!I forgot my knife.You wait here. I’ll go home and get it.I looked around. Dark shadows were dancing in the moonlight, and my lips trembled as I said: Sister, don’t leave me. I’m afraid here alone.”No, it’s close to home,” she said.You wait here. I’ll be right back.”Well!That elder sister, you can hurry up!I haven’t even left yet, and my teeth are chattering.The fourth sister laughed at me, “Look at you, you look like a coward.Afraid of what?”Then, grumbling left.After the elder sister left, my mind was drowsy and I suddenly woke up.I felt something strange under my feet, and in the moonlight I was surprised to see that I was seven years old in a rough graveyard.As I discovered my situation, fear seized me. My hair stood on end and my legs gave way.My heart is pounding. I want to get out of here as soon as possible.But my legs couldn’t move. Suddenly, I saw a house not far away.And I remembered that it was my classmate’s home.I thought if I could go and knock on the door, I wouldn’t be scared to death.I tentatively moved forward a little bit, unconsciously, has been out of the graveyard.I arrived at the door.Summon up the courage to seize the lock hook on the door and beat the door frame hard, but also exhausted all his strength to call my sister’s name.I don’t know if I was frightened and lost my head. My legs and legs were like a demon, and I couldn’t stop shaking like a sieve…Ming Ming knocked hard, but there was no strength in his hand.Those who shout loudly can be heard only by themselves.(2) What happened to the horrible pond?Why haven’t I come yet?I was so anxious that TEARS came to my eyes.I’m afraid of everything, and I feel something behind me, just as I turn around.In the lotus pond near the graveyard, white smoke was floating.I am looking at that white gauze skirt like mist trance, a shadow that looks like a woman as white smoke, if if if slowly floated over.The woman seemed to be wearing a white dress with long hair down to her waist.Ah!Could it have been a hallucination, or could it have been a real encounter with a water ghost?I once heard the old man say that water ghosts who drown in the river always come out at night to look for a substitute.The more I thought about it, the more terrified I became, the more terrified I became, the more I trembled.If you want to shout, you can’t shout. If you want to run, you can’t run.In despair, I thought that this finished, do not happen to meet the devil.Just in the moment of panic, two dogs were heard barking.When I looked back, the woman in the white dress had disappeared behind a tree.Listen to the old man said, the ghost is most afraid of cock crow dawn.Stay up till dawn. I’ll be safe.Now that the ghost is gone, I’ll run.As I thought, I looked at the barking.It was a big yellow dog, sticking out its tongue, wagging its head and tail at me.3) Appreciate the company of Big Huang, the dog is intelligent, as if sensing my danger.He used his bark to help me out of danger.There is no turning back.He ran out of the graveyard and met a ghost again.Dogs are, after all, man’s companions, and now only the great yellow dog can give me courage and companionship in times of crisis.An unprecedented desire to survive forced me to try to move one step at a time toward the big yellow dog, which was not hostile to me.See me slowly approaching, not only did not scream, but shook his head to welcome me.He spat out the tip of his tongue and licked my clothes and the corners of my trousers, leading me into a yard.That could be his owner’s house.For at the gate of the yard I saw the brick nest my master had made for it.His warm body clung to my leg, clinging to the ground.It was july-August, and the nights were already chilly.I couldn’t help hugging my shivering body with fear and cold.I was usually most afraid of dogs, but at that moment, that night of terror, that night of terror, that moonlit hour, I could not think of anything.That big yellow dog became my closest companion, my savior.Just for a moment, next to its warm fur, it helped me ward off the cold.Drive away timid, is it brought me endless warmth and power!After many years, often read that night.I would recite rhubarb as a benefactor…With rhubarb, I forgot about night for a while.The graveyard, the pond, the ghost.Suddenly everything wasn’t so scary.As time passed, I looked forward to the early morning light, so that I could go home safely.(four) the village head sent me home I do not know how long, some of my eyelids fighting, suddenly heard a rush of footsteps.A middle-aged man suddenly stopped at the door in the moonlight.Shouted to me: Who are you?I was so startled by the man’s sudden appearance that I held my breath.Then the man shouted, “Who are you talking to, or I’ll call for a thief?”I stood up quickly from the yellow dog. “No, uncle,” I said in a trembling voice. “I’m not a thief.”Hearing a girl’s voice, the man approached slowly and asked, “If it’s not a thief, what are you doing here in the middle of the night?”At this time, I saw clearly that he was our village head by the dim moonlight.He saw my lips tremble.Stuttering in tone.Then comfort way: “child don’t be afraid, say slowly.”So I told him how I had been called out by my sister to hunt hogweed.Village head after listening to my story, angry blame my elder sister way: “really not sensible, throw you a person here, how dangerous in the middle of the night!He must have gone home to sleep.”After complaining, the village head took my hand and said, “Let’s go!Don’t be afraid, son.

Doesn’t she know how scared you must be to be alone?”Perhaps to banish my fear, the village chief said angrily as he walked.After a while, the village head took me to our home.It was quiet when I entered the courtyard.
