My colleague Greek teacher Bie Lee Kopf two months before death in our city.You must have heard of him.He's really strange, even in the sunny day, also wear boots, take an umbrella, and must wear warm cotton coat.He is always an umbrella in a case, put in a grey suede sleeve; even the pencil knife is mounted in a small case.His face seemed covered with covers, because he always hide it in a ruffled collar.He wore dark glasses, wear a sweater, cotton ears eyes.He sat on the carriage, to call the coachman to put up the hood.In short, the people always want to wrap themselves in shell, seems to be made for themselves a good cover, retired, without external influence.Real life to stimulate him, frightened him, always make him worried.Perhaps for their timidity, yourself on the reality of the abomination to defend it, he is always singing in praise of those past, never exists; in fact he taught ancient languages for him, is also the rain boots and umbrella, makes him to escape the reality of life.
Bie Lee Kopf put his ideas also tried to hide in a bush.Only the government notices and newspaper articles, which provides a ban on anything, he just feels be crystal clear.See a notice banning high school students in the evening after nine o'clock to the street, he was clearly understood: it is forbidden, good, that'll do.But he felt in the official approval or consent, always contains casts doubts on the composition, contain the indistinct, haven't fully said composition.Whenever he passed the approval of the authorities, the city opened a drama club, or the reading room, or the teahouse, he always shook his head, and said in a low voice: "of course, well, this is all very well, but do not give any trouble."
Contrary to law, who out of the regular, irregular, although looks like he is irrelevant, they make him feel depressed.If one of his colleagues to the church to pray to late, or if he heard the rumor, said that high school students make trouble, he always nervous very much, a talking about: you must come into any trouble.In the Senate, his cautious, that paranoia, that pure sleeve type arguments, we simply pressed through on.What he said, whether men or woman middle school, high school or, young people are restless, noisy noisy in the classroom -- oh, just the thing not to authorities of the ears is good, but not out of any trouble.He thought if the second grade Petrov and Ye Huo Love expelled from the fourth grade, it properly.Guess what?He with his heave great sighs, he had become dejected and despondent, and his pale face glasses, overcome us, we had to give in, Petrov and Ye Huo Love conduct scores decreased, put them into custody.Then put them expelled.Our teachers are afraid of him.Believe it or not.Our teachers are thinking, decent man, with Turgenev and Xie Delin's influence, but the old rain boots, holding an umbrella of the little people, but the entire middle school for fifteen years and over!But just over high school what?The town suffered him over!Here we ladies to Saturday not to do the family drama party, fearing that he heard; priests to his face, not eating meat, can not play.In this type of Belikov under the influence of the city people, trembling with fear to live ten to fifteen years, what are afraid of.They dare not speak loudly, dare not write, dare not make friends, afraid to read a book, not the poor, did not dare to teach people to write and read……
Bie Lee Kopf and I live in a house.His bedroom is very small, like a box, bed hanging mosquito net.He went to bed, he pulled the quilt cover head.The room was hot and stuffy, wind pushed the shut door, humming in the stove, the kitchen came -- ominous sigh sigh……He lay under my quilt, trembling with fear, afraid of what will happen, afraid of thieves sneak in here.He pulls the nightmares, the morning we went to school together, he be out of spirits, pale.He went to the crowded school, so he was terrified and disgusted with me side by side; he then to walk, a shy person, apparently also grind.
However, this guy in a suit, almost married.Have a history teacher, one from Ukraine, named Mihanny Savich Kovalenko, sent to our school.He is with his sister Wawrinka together.Later, because the principal wife tried to fix, Wawrinka started on our Bie Lee Kopf clearly expressed feelings.In love, especially in the aspects of marriage, urged to play a great role.Everyone -- his colleagues and their wives -- began to lobby: he ought to get married to Bie Lee Kopf.Moreover, Wawrinka grow not bad, be like; she is five and other civilian's daughter, a homestead; especially important, she was the first woman to be his sincere and affectionate.Then his head, never
But Wawrinka brother from understanding Belikov's first day, you hate him.
Now, you listen to what happened afterwards.A poltergeist drew a picture, painted with Bie Lee Kopf hit an umbrella, wearing boots, furl trouser legs, walking, arms holding Wawrinka; following with a title: "love anthropos."You know, it looks like a pole.The artist must draw more than night, because the school and female middle school teachers, school teachers, God Amun in official, all received a.Bie Lee Kopf also received a.The cartoon made him embarrassed.
We all went out of the room; the day is Sunday, May 1st, students and teachers in school we'll assemble prior agreement, then go to the outskirts of a small woods.We leave, he is blue in the face, dark clouds more than.
"The world should be so vicious villain!"He said, his lips quiver.
I even pity him.We walked and walked, suddenly left, even by riding bicycle, behind him, Wawrinka also rode a bike to.Blushing, be tired out, but happy, be jubilant.
"We go ahead!"She cried.What a beautiful day!Lovely, lovely!".
They walked away, gone.Bie Lee Kopf turned from green to white.He stopped, looked at me.
What's this about, Harvey?Or, maybe my eyes deceive me?Does middle school teachers and young lady cycling is proper?"
"What's in a state of disorder?"I asked, "let them while riding their bicycles, playing a good naked."
"But this how line?"He cried, see I keep calm, wondering, "what are you saying?"
He seems to mind mess, refused to go any further, go home.
The very next day he is always anxious to rub, tremble; from his face clearly see he is ill.Yet when the school, he went away, which he is the first to do.He didn't eat his lunch.Towards evening, he dressed and warm, went to Co Wa Rienk's house.Hua Lian card is not at home, just met her brother.
Sit down, please.Co Wa Rienk said coldly, frowned.Bie Lee Kopf sat in silence for ten minutes, then open the:
"I'm here, is to finish my something.I worry very much, worry very much.There is a harbour evil designs guy made a ridiculous caricature, painting I and another with you and I have an intimate relationship.I think I have a responsibility to assure you that I got nothing to do with it……I didn't do something to deserve such cynicism -- just the opposite, I act was in every respect is worthy of upright gentlemen."
Co Wa Rienk sat there sulking, not to say a word.Bie Lee Kopf waited a while, and then down the throat, with a sad tone then said: "I have something to talk to you about.I am here for years as a thing, you recently; since I was an older than your colleague, I think that I have the responsibility to give you an advice.You ride a bike, the entertainment, the education of the young person, is absolutely not fitting!"
"How do you know?"Co Wa Rienk ask."Isn't it used to explain it, Mihanny Savich, isn't this behoove?If the teacher riding a bicycle, but also hope that students do good?They can do only upside down, with the head to walk!Since the government has not issued a circular, allowed to do this, just do not.Yesterday I was scared!I saw your sister, the eyes become dark.A young lady, or a girl, but cycling -- this is terrible!"
What do you want.
"What I want to do is one thing, is the advice you, Mihanny Savich.You are young, you have a great future, you act very carefully before you so careless; but, alas, so careless!You wearing embroidered shirt out, people often see you in the street, holding a book about: now, and what the bicycle riding.The headmaster would say you and your sister's bike, then, it will spread to the ears……This will be good?"
"When my sister and I ride my bicycle, it can not do the others."Co Wa Rienk blushed said, "who wants to come to my private affairs, send him away!"
Bie Lee Kopf looked pale, stand up."You talk to me in this way, that I cannot tell me then."He said, "I ask you in front of me talking about the boss do not talk like that to the boss; you should respect."
"I said to his boss: what bad words?"Even the family left angrily asked, staring at him."Could you hide from me.I am not willing to be open and aboveboard person, you speak to mrI don't like those who secretly into the evil person."
Bie Lee Kopf lose presence of mind, hurried to put the coat, with a look of horror on his face.This is his first time to hear others say to him so unkind.
"As you say, by hi."As he walked out of the way, to the stairs, said, "but I have to tell you a statement: someone eavesdropped on our conversation, in order to avoid our conversation being misunderstood that make the trouble reasons, I have to put our conversation report school -- to explain the long effect.I can't do."
"Tell him?To go, although the report!"
Co Wa Rienk behind him and grabbed his front collar, a hard push, along with his boots banging together Belikov rolled downstairs.The staircase was high and steep, but he rolled to the downstairs is safe and sound, stand up.Touch the nose, looked at his glasses broken No.But, he rolled down time, Wawrinka must come back, with two msThey stood downstairs, freeze.The Bie Lee Kopf is better than anything terrible.I believe he'd broken neck and two legs, is not willing to be the object of ridicule.Yes, in this way, all the people will know it, will come to the ears, will come to the ears.Oh, may make any trouble!Maybe there will be a comic, it made him to retire……
When he stood up, Hualiankacai recognize him.She looked at his funny face, his crumpled coat, his boots, don't understand what is going on, that he is a careless and fell down, cannot but laugh, laughter in the house rang:
Ha ha ha.
The loud and clear "ha ha ha" the end of all things: the end of the expected marriage, over Belikov world life.He didn't hear the Wawrinka to say what, he didn't see anything.A home, the first thing he is removed from the table Wawrinka photos; then he got on to the bed, never played a bed.
A month later, Belikov died.We all go to the funeral.
We must honestly; bury people like Bie Lee Kopf, is one of the things this cheers the people greatly.We from the back, a melancholy and modest face; who also refused to reveal the feelings of happiness.-- like feelings, we long ago do child, meeting adults not at home, we go to the garden to run one or two hours, enjoy full freedom, to experience.
We happily from the home.But a week is not over, life and restore the old way, as before depressed, boring, mess.The situation is no better.Indeed, although we buried Belikov, but this guy in a suit, still there are many, will also do not know how much do!
