Lu Ding Ji is Jin Yong’s last martial arts novel. It is the final work of Jin Yong and represents the highest achievement of Jin Yong’s martial arts novels. The novel “The Deer Tripod” was serialized from October 1969 to September 1972 for two years and eleven months, and is still serialized in the Ming Pao sponsored by Jin Yong. The title of the book includes the words “deer” and “ding”. “deer” is the “deer” of “competing for the central plains of deer”, and “ding” is the “ding” of “winning the ding”. Therefore, from the perspective of the name, the book is closely connected with politics and power struggle. The background of the story is set in the late Ming and early Qing Dynasty (1644-1689). It tells the story of a young Wei Xiaobao who grew up in a brothel in Yangzhou, who wandered into the major guilds in the Jianghu without any martial arts, circled among the emperors and courtiers, and went on an expedition to Yunnan and Russia with orders. It portrays a small figure image completely different from the traditional Xiake, and satirizes some hypocrites and obstinate ideas with this image, It shows the idea of national unity. There are eight comic books in total. Please enjoy them.
In the early years of Kangxi in the Qing Dynasty, Mingyu Square on the bank of Slender West Lake in Yangzhou City was the gathering place of brothels and famous prostitutes. One late spring day, at the dawn of the lights, five or six people shouted at the same time in the south and north of the square: “Listen to the people in the yard. We are looking for a person. It is irrelevant to others. We don’t listen to the instructions. Don’t blame us for being rude!”
There was a big banquet in the Lichun Courtyard. More than ten big salt merchants sat at three tables, with a prostitute sitting beside each. With a bang, the gate burst open, and seventeen or eighteen big men poured in. These big men are dressed in short clothes. They are wrapped in white cloth, wrapped in green belts, and holding a bright steel knife, or an iron ruler, or an iron bar.
At the sight of the salt merchants, they recognized that the person was the salt owl who sold salt for smuggling. One of the salt owls, an old man in his fifties, clasped his hands and said, “Dear friends, excuse me! Is Jia Laoliu, brother of the Heaven and Earth Society, here?”
4 After a long time of silence, the salt owls searched everywhere. Suddenly, a bold voice in the east wing room said, “Who is shouting to bother me to have fun?” Three salt owls rushed towards the east wing room with steel knives, but they heard “Ouch” and “Ouch”, and they flew out one after another.
There is a big scar on the face of the sixth Inja, which is easy to recognize. The old man took a few steps to look into the east room and saw a big man with a beard sitting on the head of the bed, his head covered with white cloth, and his face was not scarred. Obviously, it was not Jia Laoliu. The old man asked the man what his surname was, and the man scolded: “I am your grandpa!”
Among the prostitutes standing aside, suddenly a middle-aged prostitute in her thirties giggled. A smuggler slapped his face and made the prostitute’s nose and tears flow. Suddenly, a 12-year-old boy came out and shouted, “You dare to hit my mother, you bastard!
The salt owl was furious and reached out to catch the child. The child dodged sideways, pushed open the door of the wing room and ran in. The big man was shocked, but he dared not rush into the room to chase him.
