真假白玉枕

雍正皇帝刚登基就遇上了烦心事:在皇族和大臣中流传着有关他改诏篡位的风言风语。如果任由这种谣言传播,不但败坏他的声誉,还会让人们质疑他继位的合法性,那这把龙椅可就坐不安稳了。必须给这些人一个下马威,封住他们的嘴。可是,在眼前这种情势下大开杀戒的话,不正好让谣言坐实吗?雍正思来想去也没什么好点子,搞得他头痛欲裂,寝食难安。

日有所思夜有所梦,这夜他梦见自己被蛇咬了,惊醒后发现枕头上汗水淋淋,他就让贴身太监刘福换个枕头来。刘福给他拿来个白玉枕,说是西域刚进贡来的。只见这枕雕刻精美,温润细滑。雍正就枕后,感觉脖颈清凉凉的,脑子也爽快了许多。起床后,他把玩起这白玉枕来,爱不释手。刘福见了,踌躇一会儿,凑近他耳旁嘀咕了好半天,他的眼里慢慢放出了光。

此后,他常向身邊的太监、宫女、护卫,还有来禀事的大臣大讲白玉枕的妙处,说枕它睡觉尽做美梦。大家都惊叹白玉枕的奇妙,恭维说皇上定会美梦成真。

忽然一天,雍正醒来大呼小叫,嚷着头下面被换了个普通枕头,白玉枕不翼而飞了。他召来大臣隆科多及九门提督等人,让他们日日搜查,限期破案。隆科多他们哪敢耽搁,立马将京城翻了个底朝天,却一无所获。雍正大怒,不让隆科多他们管了,交给刘福查办此事。

刘福领命后却啥都不查,撺掇雍正去城外玩赛马。雍正说白玉枕丢后一直心烦,正想出去散散心,就让隆科多等人陪着出城去了赛马场。

玩了一天,晚上宿营郊外。吃喝间,雍正忽拍大腿:“朕的护身短剑忘带了,今晚如何安寝!”隆科多说派人回宫去取,雍正皱眉道:“朕下令夜关城门,怎能为了自己办事坏了规矩?”隆科多眨眨眼没话说了。刘福奏道:“皇上只是下令关城门,并没有不让进城啊。如果有人能够不走城门进城,就不算违令。”雍正喜道:“还真是这么回事。不过,眼下有这种翻越城墙如履平地的人吗?”刘福道:“据老奴所知,禁军士兵苏勇有这本事。他这次也来护卫皇上了。”

隆科多瞪起了眼:“能飞檐走壁,皇上的白玉枕不会就是他盗的吧?”刘福翻翻眼皮答道:“这人是刚刚被选拔进禁军的,案发时他还在塞外当兵。”

苏勇被传到雍正面前,是个英气勃发的青年。刘福给他个进宫腰牌,让他越墙回城,去宫中取来皇上的短剑。

苏勇去了不到一个时辰,带回短剑复命。雍正接剑后却又把它交给苏勇,并提升他为校尉,命他跟随刘福查办白玉枕案。然后,雍正阴阳怪气地道:“苏勇就是朕的剑,出鞘必有斩获。”他话锋一转,盯着众臣道:“白玉枕不一定是被贼人所盗,说不定是被某位达官贵人顺手牵羊了。启用苏勇,就是要查出白玉枕的下落,各位爱卿要大力配合啊。”众臣跪地齐道:“皇上定能找回白玉枕。”

回宫后,刘福给了苏勇一份名单,吩咐道:“皇上的意思很清楚,偷白玉枕的就是大臣中的一个。你施展轻功,按这份名单挨个搜查大臣的宅邸。你有皇上所赐短剑,不用怕惊动他们,也不用怕留下痕迹。”

于是,苏勇夜间飞进大臣住宅,查找白玉枕。可连查多日,连白玉枕的影儿都没见到。禀报刘福后,刘福并不着急,让苏勇查第二遍,还说要往细处查,查大臣们的密室暗洞。

被查的大臣开始时敢怒不敢言,毕竟这是皇上的旨意。可是这么没完没了地查,他们受不了了,早朝时一个个故意哈欠连天,嘟哝着说夜里被搅得睡不好觉。隆科多苦着脸奏道:“皇上,臣夜里时常见到鬼影晃来晃去,不知是何征兆。”雍正微微一笑:“不做亏心事不怕鬼叫门,隆爱卿怕是白天想事太多了吧。”隆科多见雍正用眼斜他,不敢再言。

 

散朝后,隆科多对刘福说:“还请公公劝劝皇上,别让那人夜里瞎折腾了,睡不好觉啊。”刘福耷拉着眼皮不阴不阳地道:“皇上说得很明白,你净瞎操心。俗话说操心太多要烂肺子的,哪还能睡好觉啊。”隆科多无言以对,但眼露凶光。

刘福看出隆科多居心叵测,找来苏勇叮嘱:夜间行事务必小心,谨防黑手。

这夜,苏勇飞上隆科多的宅邸房顶,正要撬阁楼天窗,那窗却开了,里面有人将一包裹塞进他怀里,轻声道:“接住,还有。”苏勇一愣怔间,又有包裹入怀,还被人从后面将一个包裹挂到脖子上。

突然,宅中四处亮起火把,有人高喝:“别让贼人跑了,放箭!”苏勇未及躲闪,肩头已中一箭,感觉半边身子都麻了,头晕瘫倒。危急时刻,一个身披大氅的人凌空飘至,将他拦腰夹起,攀住垂挂房顶的树枝荡到树上,又连续跳跃几次,逃离了隆宅。

救苏勇的人正是刘福。他把苏勇背回宫,发现箭伤处流出黑血。“中了毒箭!”刘福想都没想,用嘴吸吮伤口,他吸了一口又一口,直到吸出的血不黑了才停。他又跑去找来御医,请御医给用上特效解毒药。

见苏勇已无大碍,刘福才松了口气,恨恨地道:“定是隆科多老贼命亲信假扮贼人,在你入隆宅时往你身上栽赃,伺机把你射杀。就算皇上知道了追查下来,也会说是射贼人时误射到你。这计好毒啊。”他转了几个圈子,猛然挥拳,“奶奶的,本来我还未确定白玉枕是不是他偷的,现在就一定是他了。你养好伤后再去他家,定能找到。”

过了些日子,苏勇的箭伤痊愈。他按照刘福的指示,在一个雷雨交加之夜再次潜入隆宅,绕过园中假山,找到了石头下面的洞口。他缩身钻洞,燃亮火把,七转八拐,摸进了一间密室。他见室顶吊着一只大木盒。刚要去取,蓦然想起刘福的话:“不可贸然取物,那会触动暗箭机关,会被暗箭射成筛子的。”他细细观察了吊盒一会儿,然后抽出雍正赐给的短剑,瞄准木盒的吊环掷去。短剑穿过吊环斜刺进棚顶,同时剑刃割断了吊绳,而刺进棚顶的短剑压住吊环,与木盒的重量相当,没有触发暗箭机关。木盒落地前,苏勇两腿伸向木盒落点,稳稳接住木盒,再弹腿踢盒入怀。他撤出隆宅时,看到刘福在洞外接应。

刘福告诉他,皇上正在寝宫等着白玉枕,即刻送去。到了寝宫,刘福让苏勇先等在门外,他先进去禀报。刘福进去后没有关门,苏勇听见他对雍正说:“皇上,您枕着白玉枕睡得可好?”雍正道:“当然好啊。那事办妥了吗?”“全妥,皇上的利剑就候在门外。”

刘福叫苏勇进去,苏勇望望雍正床上的白玉枕,又瞅瞅自己手里捧着的木盒,有点发蒙。雍正让他明日早朝与隆科多对质,又给了他一些赏赐,他都糊里糊涂地受领了。出来后他问刘福,白玉枕不是皇上枕得好好的吗?这从隆宅取来的又是什么?刘福冷笑两声,说早朝便见分晓。

 

早朝一开始,雍正就逼问隆科多:“你家密室里有东西不见了吧?”见隆科多一脸茫然,雍正命九门提督押隆科多去他家密室,关闭暗箭机关后,查抄室内所有东西。一顿饭工夫,九门提督押回隆科多,还带回大量的东西,看得大家眼花缭乱。只见除了苏勇取白玉枕留下的短剑外,还有大量奇珍异宝、名贵古玩、金银细软等等。

雍正让苏勇讲述了在隆宅搜查白玉枕的经过,当庭呈上在密室查到的白玉枕。之后,雍正让众大臣围拢过来,辨识一下这个白玉枕是真是假。众大臣见过之后,脸都绿了,这根本就不是皇上曾向他们炫耀过的白玉枕,而是另外一个颜色灰暗、工艺粗糙的玉枕。

大臣们越看越惊,张着大嘴却不敢出气,偷瞅着雍正神色,想看出雍正的意图。雍正却正襟危坐,脸僵如雕,什么也看不出来。憋得实在没办法了,大臣们才含含糊糊地道:“这个嘛……真的不像,假的也难说。”雍正冷笑一声:“你们连白玉枕的真假都辨不出来,尸位素餐,整日里却热衷于散布一些捕风捉影的东西,你们配享受朕的食禄吗?”

听了这话,众臣总算明白了,原来雍正是在利用白玉枕案,封杀关于他篡位的传言。他们背地里没少议论过这事,看到雍正要秋后算账了,个个吓得浑身哆嗦。可过了一会儿,没见雍正再治别人的罪,仍只把板子打在隆科多一人的屁股上,这才明白雍正只是嫁祸隆科多,杀鸡吓猴。大臣们互递一下会意的眼神,都松了口气。

这时,刘福禀道:“皇上,依老奴看,隆科多定是将盗去的白玉枕转移藏匿了,把个假的放在密室里蒙蔽皇上。”此说法虽无实证,雍正却以欺君罪和贪污受贿罪罢了隆科多的官,把他关进大牢。然后,雍正操起龙椅后的一根木棒,对准假白玉枕狠砸下去,噼噼啪啪,眨眼间假白玉枕成了碎片。雍正哼道:“这叫作把假的东西当真的用。众爱卿可明白?”

众臣齐跪,可不知说啥好,静默了片刻,才乱纷纷地答话,答得五花八门:有的谢恩,有的说明白了,还有的说再也不敢乱讲了…… 雍正哈哈大笑,挥手遣散了眾大臣。而后,他想起了什么,吩咐刘福道:“对啦,苏勇为朕效力中了毒箭,把朕的三鞭大补丸赐予苏勇补养身体。”

当晚,刘福侍寝时,雍正问:“三鞭大补丸吃下了吗?”刘福点头。雍正又问:“该见效了吧?”刘福躬身捂肚,脸颊流汗:“开始见效了。”

雍正忙问:“你怎么啦?”刘福嗓音嘶哑:“皇上,老奴给你出主意玩真假白玉枕的游戏,除掉了隆科多,吓住了众臣,可你知道老奴从这事上得到了什么吗?”

雍正猛地跳起:“怎么,难道你还敢另有所图?”刘福痛楚的脸上竟绽开笑靥:“嘿嘿,老奴在这件事上夹带了私货,就是通过这事让儿子看清了宫廷的真面目。”

刘福好似忘了痛,如数家珍般娓娓道出他得意的缘由:他儿子跟他年轻时一样,信奉“学成文武艺,货与帝王家”的古训,幻想靠效命帝王出人头地。练成祖传武功后,儿子先去边塞当兵,前阵子又来死缠,让刘福把他弄进禁军。刘福年轻时就身怀绝技,满腔热血地来效力帝王,却投靠无门,不得已进宫当了太监。他怎能让儿子再走这条路,可看到儿子那种痴迷的状态,刘福知道根本说服不了他。深思熟虑之后,刘福决定用让儿子目睹宫廷里的血淋淋现实的办法,把儿子从效力宫廷、博取前程的迷梦中唤醒。此时,正赶上雍正被不利传闻困扰,刘福灵机一动,就献上了真假白玉枕的计策。在隆科多用毒箭射伤苏勇后,他亲自把假白玉枕案栽赃到隆科多的头上。

“原来苏勇是你儿子?”“没错,我当太监后儿子就改成他母亲的姓了。他几番冒死找回白玉枕,却不料看到的是这样一场闹剧,心灰意冷了,说‘隆科多的确有罪,可皇上整人的手段也太下三烂了,要是为这样的君王卖命死了,真是不值啊’。我见火候到了,就劝他脱身虎口,浪迹天涯。他听了我的话,像逃出笼子的鸟一般出京远去了。我替他吃了皇上的‘三鞭大补丸’,他的行踪线索就断了。哎呀,肚子好痛,皇上下的药真毒。你记住,我是为儿子而死的,不是为你……”

雍正望着刘福扭曲的尸体,脊背直冒凉气,暗道:只玩手段恐怕难服人心,这样下去后果不堪设想啊!
