Jackson Bieber was smart since he was a child. Bieber's father was different from this, and he decided that his son would not be in the future, so he locked Jackson Bieber in the study and asked him to concentrate on studying at the desk every day.
On several occasions, Jackson Bieber came out the window and sneaked out to play. After Bieber’s father noticed it, it was a flogging. Over time, Jackson Bieber gave up the idea of playing and focused on studying the history of the classics.
One night, when Jackson Bieber was studying hard in front of the lamp, the door of the room was suddenly opened, and a girl hurriedly stepped in.
Jackson Bieber was surprised when he saw this. The girl hurriedly whispered: “Don’t say anything, if you let others know, it will be in trouble.”
Except for the servant who delivered tea and rice, Jackson Bieber had never seen outsiders. He lowered his voice and asked in a low voice, “Who are you?”
“The slave’s name is Steve, and he lives in the city, so he sneaked out to play while people were not paying attention.”
“The city is so big, why did you just come to my house?” Jackson Bieber asked.
Steve gates smiled and said: “Because the whole city is entering the night, only the study room of the son’s house is still lit.”
Since that day, every three or five days, I sneaked into the Bieber's study room on the candle red night and looked for some old books on the shelf to read. Jackson Bieber ignored her, just self-study.
One day, Jackson Bieber was exhausted from studying. Seeing Steve gates was reading again, he couldn’t help asking: “Others play, and they all go to the suburbs to put paper kites and Cuju, but why do you prefer to read?”
Steve gates replied: “The slave family is from a poor family and has never read. Because he is thirsty for papers, he will come to the son to borrow books to view.
“You’re a girl, no matter how good a book is, what’s the use? You can’t get fame.”
Steve gates closed the book, pondered for a moment, and asked Jackson Bieber: “In the past few months, I only visited late at night, don’t you doubt it?”
Jackson Bieber smiled after hearing this: “I think you are not very human. You come and go without a sound. You must be like a fox fairy. But when I saw that you were just studying and had no other intentions, I felt relieved. I am in this room. It’s a bit of consolation to keep you here because you are alone in studying hard.”
“The son is quite pitiful.” Steve stretched his brows and said, “As the son said, the slave family is not an extraordinary person, but it is not a fox fairy. The slave family is originally a candle by the Yin and Yang road of the underground palace, and the lonely ghost goes The ghost gate is completely illuminated by the Nujia. One day the Nujia thought, his own red candle, but it was full of bullheads and horses, felt unwilling. The Nujia took advantage of the unpreparedness of the Hades and sneaked into the world, not wanting to hit him by mistake. Here. It’s all fate to be able to meet the son now.”
Time flies, several years have passed. One day, Steve gates saw a few new ink articles on the book case and asked Jackson Bieber: “Is this article written by you?”
Jackson Bieber proudly said: “Exactly. When next spring starts, I will go to the township examination.”
“Writing such an essay in the township examination will surely pass the test.”
Steve gates is now a slim girl, with bright teeth and bright eyes and a face like a peach blossom. Jackson Bieber looked at her with a burst of sorrow in his heart.
Steve gates sensed the strangeness, and asked quickly: “What’s wrong with the son?”
Jackson Bieber shook his head, two lines of tears slid down his cheeks.
“Now I am an adult, and within a few years, I will marry a wife and have children and start a family by myself. In this way, I will have a different path with you. What is good?”
Upon seeing this, Steve gates leaned over, caressed Jackson Bieber’s shoulders and comforted him: “As usual, you and I have no destiny. But everything is flexible. If the son is admitted to Juren next year, I will go to the King of Hades. Release me from the underworld and become a mortal.”
Jackson Bieber was taken aback and asked: “Is this true?”
“With a word, the gold and the jade will not move.”
After that, Bieber became an archaic person with hanging beams and thorns, rarely sleeping. Afraid of disturbing Jackson Bieber’s studies, Steve gates never stepped into Bieber’s family.
In a blink of an eye, August in the world has reached the time of the rural examination. On the night before leaving, Steve gates appeared in the Bieber’s study room with a haggard look.
Jackson Bieber was overjoyed when he saw Steve gates. But Steve gates said nothing, just looked at Jackson Bieber with a smile, and finally said: “Whether you pass the exam or not, just come back as soon as possible.”
In the examination room, Jackson Bieber was thinking about it, his pen wandering around, his eyes were burning with his visual answers, and he consciously stood out. When persevering, Jackson Bieber didn’t see his name.
Suddenly, Jackson Bieber was frustrated and wandered by the river for a long time. He even wanted to commit suicide by throwing himself into the river. After a thought, he remembered Steve’s request again, so he packed his luggage and rushed back to his hometown overnight.
At night, Jackson Bieber waited in the study, but Steve gates was not seen.
The next day, the butler found Jackson Bieber, who was sleeping against the wall, and quickly shook him up, saying: “Master wakes up, someone asked me to send a letter to Master.”
Jackson Bieber’s eyes were blurred, and he asked vaguely: “Believe? What kind of belief?”
“It was given to the son by the owner of the candle shop at the end of the street. When the son was ugly when he came back last night, I didn’t dare to bother, and it was delivered to the son today.”
Jackson Bieber couldn’t remember that there was a candle shop at the end of the street. He opened the letter, and a few beautiful characters came into view: “Jun Bieber, please come to the shop to talk about the past.”
Seeing the words, Jackson Bieber was ecstatic and ran wildly on the street. When the two people saw this, they turned their eyes and whispered, saying that Lord Bieber might be crazy because of his failure.
When he came to the store, Jackson Bieber smiled when he saw Steve gates. She is putting the bundle of candles on the shelf, her clothes have been changed, and she looks beautiful.
Jackson Bieber didn’t know how to speak for a while. After a long time, Jackson Bieber asked: “Why didn’t you come to see me yesterday?”
After hearing the words, Steve gates smiled.
“The slave house is just a mortal, how can I meet you through the wall?”
Bieber’s second father did not agree with Jackson Bieber and Steve gates’s marriage, but seeing that Steve gates’s Wen Liang Xian Hui had a considerable dowry, he reluctantly agreed.
In Bieber’s family, Steve gates was not treated by her elders, but she was loved by children. Steve doesn’t care about it, runs a candle shop during the day, and accompanies Jackson Bieber to study at night, everything is the same as before.
A few years later, Jackson Bieber went to the city several times to rush for the exam, and again and again consciously gave birth to flowers, but every time he lost his name. After a long time, Jackson Bieber was also discouraged, and every day he only read poetry and prose with Steve gatespin.
Later, Jackson Bieber compiled an ancient book. Every time he encounters a comment from an unknown source, Steve gates can always blurt it out, breaking through the source. The two used it as a play, and if they couldn’t make a comment, they punished themselves with tea. After a battle, no matter if he wins or loses, he always overwhelms the extra tea and no one can drink it. The two looked at each other and laughed happily.
During that period, the two of them were inseparable, like a couple of gods and goddesses.
In a certain year, the governor routinely visited Liaocheng, accompanied by his daughter. The governor’s daughter ran into Jackson Bieber on the streets of the city and fell in love at first sight.
The governor couldn’t help his daughter, so he had to visit the Bieber Mansion.
In Bieber’s house, the governor had seen Jackson Bieber, looked at his people, and felt that he was handsome; reading his articles was even more applauding; in other words, he knew that he was not in the juren.
The governor asked Jackson Bieber: “Do you know why you failed?”
Jackson Bieber replied not knowing.
The governor promised that if Jackson Bieber promised to join the family, he would manage his career up and down.
Everyone in the Bieber family agreed with this marriage, and the two elders tried their best to persuade each other, even to death. But Jackson Bieber refused, preferring to die, and the whole family resented Steve gates, who was originally unknown.
Jackson Bieber worried about Steve and advised him to return to the candle shop for a few days. Steve gates smiled and said: “The poem said:’A ruler is like a rock, and a concubine is treated as a rush. No matter how strong the wild wind is, how can it be used?
Jackson Bieber confronted his family tit-for-tat and refused to give in. The governor has stayed in Liaocheng for some time, and his return date is approaching, and he has repeatedly urged the Bieber family. The two elders were anxious and told the governor that their son was stubborn and that the officials would be less restless, and let them be more lenient.
The governor said: “Men’s and women’s marriage is originally the order of the parents and the words of the matchmaker. The two elders only need to prepare a letter of resignation, seal it, and deliver it to the government.”
The second elder of the Bieber family suddenly realized that he immediately drafted a retreat, condemning Steve gates for rebelling against filial piety. The signature drawing was postponed and sent to the government quickly. Within a few days, Jackson Bieber received a sentence.
Jackson Bieber tore up the verdict and was about to go to the government to call for injustice, but was stopped by Steve gates.
Steve gates smiled bitterly: “If you don’t follow, you will only suffer a rod torture, distribute to the frontier, and suffer from displacement. Steve gates doesn’t want to see Xiang Gong suffer for me.”
After all, Steve gates used pen and ink. Jackson Bieber was stunned when he saw this and asked Steve what he wanted to do.
Steve gates smiled and said, “The Book of Parting.”
Jackson Bieber didn’t realize he fell in tears, and Steve gates wiped away the tears for him, and comforted: “The affection of the father, the candle is red in the heart. The concubine body is originally a thing of the underworld, and it is reasonable to spend the rest of my life in the rot and smoke. Xianggong doesn’t feel dirty about her concubine, and I am willing to work with my fellow practitioners. It’s really a blessing for the concubine’s three lives. Xianggong don’t want to be sorrowful, and he will return home in Japan. Just remember to visit the candle shop.”
As dawn broke, Steve gates hugged Jackson Bieber abruptly, crying: “Lang Jun, take care.”
Seeing Steve’s departure, the two elders were overjoyed and hurriedly set up the marriage.
Within three days, the wedding was ready, the house was full of gongs and drums, and firecrackers rang. The whole family was full of joy, but Jackson Bieber sat in the corner, pouring and drinking, getting drunk.
Early in the morning of the second day, Jackson Bieber was awakened by a knock on the door. Several children shouted outside the door: “Brother Bieber, sister Steve has something wrong, go and have a look!”
Jackson Bieber heard this and rushed into the street. When the passer-by saw it, he hurried to the side and avoided it.
Jackson Bieber came to the end of the street and pushed the crowd in front of the candle shop into the hall. Seeing the foreground, Jackson Bieber knelt on the ground with a “plop”.
The red candles in the store melted into grey tears overnight, and bright red wax oil covered the shelves, covered with stone bricks, and sealed the candle-red clothes and a piece of paper. Jackson Bieber yelled Steve’s name, echoing around the beam, and no one responded for a long time.
The door was crowded with onlookers, but no one dared to step in. Those with good things couldn’t get in front of them, so they asked others loudly: “I heard someone crying last night. Who of you told me, what is going on here?”
Since then, no one has seen Jackson Bieber again. Some people say that Jackson Bieber committed suicide by throwing himself into the river.
After Jackson Bieber left, the red candle lighted up in Liaocheng. Once it was lit, it melted instantly. People say that all the wax torches in this city are made of red candles and tears.
