The roof of Li Qianwei’s house, which had been in disrepair for a long time, was damaged after a strong wind and heavy rain. Li Qianwei invited a bricklayer surnamed Cao from the next village to repair the roof for him, which took about five days.Because they lived close to each other, Cao went home to sleep at night. When he passed Zhao Fugui’s house that night, Zhao Fugui pulled him into the house.Zhao Fugui and Cao Bricklayer is also old acquaintance, Zhao Fugui home land, Cao bricklayer rented zhao Fugui home land, is zhao Fugui’s tenant farmer.Zhao Fugui gave the mason a small silver ingot and promised to exempt his family from rent for one year.Cao bricklayer flattered, do not know why Zhao Fugui to him so good.Zhao Fugui hey hey smile, said his idea.The mason hesitated for a long time. Then Zhao Fugui approached him and said, “I will waive your rent for another year. You will not have to pay the rent for two years as long as you succeed in this matter.If not, I’ll take it back next year.””Sake red face, wealth and silk tempted people,” under the threat of Zhao Fugui, Cao bricklayer finally tempted, he said through clenched teeth: “Do this, Li Qianwei’s daughter is no longer innocent!”In the following days, Cao worked as usual, but on the last day, Cao secretly placed a wooden figure on the beam of Li’s house. This wooden figure was carved with a man and a woman cuddling together.It is said that if such wooden figures are placed in unmarried people’s homes, the daughters of the family will lose their innocence.After the completion of cao bricklayer regardless of Li Qianwei’s retention will hurry back home.When Zhao Fugui found cao Bricklayer in the evening, Cao bricklayer said to him that things have been done, waiting to see the drama.From then on, Mr. Zhao often hung around Mr. Li’s house, seemingly waiting for something.Sure enough, peach son like changed a person, very not easy to be li Qianwei cultivated into the lady image disappeared, become very flirtatious, often and the village man winking, let father Li Qianwei shame.Li Qianwei scolded several times, did not see the effect, that zhao Fugui secretly proud of the news, and sent a letter to cousin Ma Mingchang, please Ma Mingchang rushed to come.Ma Mingchang learned of Zhao Fugui’s behavior, applauded, hurried to come.They took advantage of Li Qianwei out hunting opportunities, took the initiative to run to the peach window, and peach.After a few words, Peach slipped out and beckoned them both to follow her to an abandoned cottage in the back hills.Zhao Fugui and Ma Mingchang brothers excitedly followed behind peach.When the cabin, peach son took the initiative to take off his coat, also let Zhao Fugui and Ma Mingchang also took off his clothes.Zhao Fugui and Ma Mingchang thought the trick was successful, a moment to take off naked, did not expect peach suddenly changed face, a foot in zhao Fugui’s heart, Zhao Fugui suddenly collapsed to the ground, Ma Mingchang turned to run, early peach kicked in the heart, Ma Mingchang also fell to the ground.Originally, peach son for so many years, kung fu has not lost.Tao took a whip prepared in advance from the corner of the room and began to whip them both. As she whipped them, she said, “Zhao Fugui, do you think you can fool me with your tricks?When the mason cao went to work the next day, I noticed something was wrong with him.That day I hid in the dark observation, found cao bricklayer put a wooden figure on the beam.This kind of crooked thing, deceiving children line, my heart a group of righteous, afraid you do what?I’ve been acting the last few days just to trap you!”Taoer taught the two men to howl, and finally beat them to beg for mercy, taoer just let them go.Zhao Fugui and Ma Mingchang lost big this time, Ma Mingchang steal chicken not eat rice, gas that night left Zhao Fugui home, cut off contact with Zhao Fugui.Zhao Fugui was afraid of peach son since childhood, did not expect peach son grew up or so fierce, he did not dare to find li’s fault.What is more surprising is that Zhao Fugui seems to have changed a person since then. He has changed his previous appearance of being ignorant and unskilled. Instead, he is practicing arts and martial arts and often does good deeds.A few years later, Jin Bing went south, Zhao Fugui donated money and food to help the Song army fight against Jin Bing, which makes Peach look at him with new eyes, peach also take the initiative to help Zhao Fugui, then the two people have feelings.After the jin army captured bianliang, Zhao Fugui and Tao er followed the fugitives to Lin ‘an, where they were married for the rest of their lives.Warm said the heart no ghost, ghost is not born;In the heart of ghosts, ghosts run amok.Like peach son, a righteous, awe-inspiring, ghost fox dare not invade, let alone a bricklayer of small skills?Peach son martial arts, chivalrous and courageous, at the same time smart, careful, early found Zhao Fugui and bricklayer plot, eventually, severely punish Zhao Fugui and Ma Mingchang.It’s better to know when you’re wrong than to change.Zhao Fugui after this matter, did not take the means of crazy revenge, but is affected by peach son started by kung fu, breast conservation and, in the face of the nomads from south to donate money to donate food, this had to say it’s a great change, also touched by the peach son girl, two people got married, is a former repair to the fate.
