建昌县小德营子乡有个村子叫郎纪沟,村东面的山上有个山洞,叫老虎洞,郎纪沟和老虎洞都是有来历的。

传说很久以前,有几十户人家在此聚集居住,日出而作,日落而息,男耕女织,布衣蔬食,勉强自给自足,虽贫乏落后,却也平静祥和。

可是这份宁静被不知从哪里来的一只豹子打破了,这只豹子凶残狡猾,白天潜伏在山里,夜晚出来伤害人畜,弄得人心惶惶,鸡犬不宁。

村里有个叫郎纪的青年石匠,决心为民除害。郎纪从小练过武,打过猎,他找出闲置的刀箭,重新打磨锋利,召集村里的青壮年男子,晚上游走,在村边搜寻。可狡猾的豹子总是能绕开巡视的人群,不时的咬死叼走村里的家畜,甚至入室伤人。搜寻了两个月,连豹子的影都没看到,人们都陆续的退出搜寻队伍,看守自己的家。

只剩下郎纪一个人了,他坚持不放弃,仍然白天练习刀箭,晚上在村头蹲守。一日的傍晚时分,郎纪发现了豹子的身影从村边的庄稼地里走出,斑斓的花纹,长长的尾巴,不急不缓,悄然无声。再仔细看,不是豹子,而是一只老虎,怎么会又出来只老虎呢?郎纪提刀在手,严阵以待。老虎却没有伤人的举动,走到郎纪面前,伏下身,频频回视自己的背,并抬首向山里示意,如是反复数次,郎纪明白了,老虎的意图是让自己骑到它的背上,是要帮助他打豹子。

当天夜里,山中虎啸豹吼,声震星汉,彻夜未停,及天亮,遍体鳞伤的老虎驮回了满身是血、奄奄一息的郎纪,老虎把郎纪放到村里人面前,又转身去山里拖回了已经死去的豹子。

郎纪和老虎为民除了害,郎纪因伤势严重,不治而死,老虎伤好后便在东山的山洞里住了下来。这只老虎似乎很懂人性,只捕食各种野兽,从不伤害家畜,因为除害有功,人们逢年过节把鸡羊送到洞里供老虎食用,老虎也经常驱赶糟蹋庄稼祸害家畜的野猪、野狼。人虎平安相处,犹如睦邻。

人们为了纪念郎纪,便把这个村子叫郎纪沟。

村里有一户姓刘的人家,老两口年过花甲,膝下无子,只有一女,名叫金莲,年方二九,生得貌美如花,又孝顺懂礼,尚待字闺中。邻村有一贾姓的大户,为富不仁,常常仗势鱼肉乡民,因意欲扩展坟地,强占刘家的几分薄田,并借故把刘老汉打伤,刘家去县里告状,贾家串通了县衙,反把刘老汉关进监狱,刘老汉伸冤无处,屈死狱中。

刘女金莲和母亲草草葬了父亲,跪在坟前对天起誓,谁能相助报得冤仇,定然以身相许。

数日之后的一个月黑风高之夜,贾家父子在家中被野兽咬断脖子而死,真是苍天有眼,大快人心。

此后,从来不进村的老虎天天光顾刘家,有时整夜的卧在刘金莲的窗外,还时常叼来獐兔等小兽,任凭刘母斥骂驱赶,只是低声呜咽而不走。刘金莲联想到贾家父子的离奇而死,似乎明白了原因。

她问:“老虎啊!我父亲的仇是你报的吗?”

老虎看着漂亮的金莲,轻轻颌首。

金莲虽是穷人家的孩子,却也懂的誓言不能违背,便对老虎说:“那我就嫁给你为妻吧!”

老虎摇头摆尾,轻盈地左跳右跃着,兴奋异常。

刘母闻之,极力阻拦,她说:“女儿啊!我也知道你曾立下重誓,但咱指的是人啊!我怎能忍心把你嫁给老虎呢?”

金莲说:“你我孤女寡母,实难报得此仇,不报此仇,老父九泉之下难以瞑目,有誓言在先,必当履行,人虎何论?况且此虎非寻常老虎。”

于是,便择得吉日,收拾衣物,随虎住进了山洞。

老虎极通人性,对金莲呵护有加,白天出去捕获山兔野雉衔回,先供金莲煮食,剩下的它才吃,夜晚,卧在金莲床前,整夜守候。金莲高兴时,它也兴奋,用尾巴轻拂金莲的脸,用身子轻蹭金莲的腿,如同淘气撒娇的孩子;金莲苦闷不舒服时,它低头垂尾,寸步不离金莲左右,任凭金莲打骂,只是低咽。

然而毕竟是兽类,难行床第之欢,金莲终日不得与人语,又牵挂老母,抑郁成疾,几年后香消玉损,老虎也从此不见了踪影,只留下了这个传说。

后来人们便把这个山洞叫老虎洞。
