民国年间,皖西朱仙镇有个小伙子叫刘晓地,家贫如洗,但会一门空手抓老鼠的绝技,常年帮人抓老鼠过日子。

一天,刘晓地在抓老鼠时不慎跌落地上,腿部骨折,伤筋动骨三个月。刘晓地在床上躺了两个月后,家里的粮食吃光了,可腿伤未愈,又接不了活儿,急坏了夫妻俩。没办法,只好去借。当时正逢春荒,有余粮的人家实在太少。刘晓地拄着拐杖,夫妻俩一起从早上跑到傍晚,但一粒粮食都未借到。

刘晓地夫妻俩回到家里,望着冰冷的锅台发呆:以后的日子可怎么过呀?刘晓地无精打采地上了床,头刚碰到枕头,忽然感觉不对劲,点亮油灯一看,只见枕头里装满了东西,揭开一看,竟是满满一大袋子白花花的大米!夫妻俩乐坏了,赶紧烧火做饭。

谁悄悄地给自己送来大米?第二天,刘晓地打听了无数人家,也未找出这个人来。在以后的日子里,刘晓地看谁都像是那个送米的恩人。

不久,刘晓地家来了一位客人,说是百里外中梅河王氏食品厂的,慕名前来请他去抓老鼠。“路途太远,我腿伤刚好,不便远行。”尽管刘晓地想去挣钱,但医生一再叮嘱千万别多动,否则后患无穷。可王老板却拉着刘晓地来到镇中大路旁,指着一辆大车说:“我已准备好车了,走吧。”

来到中梅河,刘晓地参观了王氏食品厂 ,一一品尝了厂里的食品,刘晓地大发感慨:“我长这么大,从未吃过如此美味的食品,简直妙不可言。”王老板说:“这是我们王家几百年来的独门秘方,普通厂家无论怎么模仿也做不出来的。但老鼠也知道这些糕点好吃,可我们又不能用药毒,只好请你来抓老鼠了,工钱你尽管开口。”

刘晓地看了看地形位置,知道什么地方藏有老鼠,道:“这里的老鼠是可以控制的,不出几天,我便让你厂里无鼠害,不过,外面的老鼠还是会闻味而来,但只要一年抓他个两三次便没事了。”随后,王家准备了梯子,刘晓地爬上屋梁,抓了几只大老鼠后,又掏出一窝小老鼠,放在地上,粉嫩粉嫩的,王老板一见,叫道:“三吱儿,这是三吱儿!”

 

刘晓地不解地问:“王老板,这是刚出生不久的小老鼠,有什么大惊小怪的?”

王老板说:“这你就不知道了,它们值钱着呢。满汉全席中的一道活菜叫三吱儿,要刚出生不久、未睁眼睛未长毛的小老鼠。因为这种食材很难找,因此价贵,我有个朋友在省城专做满汉全席,改天我把你介绍给他。”

王老板没有食言,几个月后,就要他为那人送货了,而且要隔三岔五地送。刘晓地本来就是干抓老鼠这一行的,小老鼠唾手可得,加上价钱贵得让他难以想象,刘晓地干得是如鱼得水。

朱仙镇有个养蜂人,家里积攒了不少蜂蜜。这天,养蜂人想让刘晓地帮忙把蜂蜜带到省城去卖,刘晓地二话不说便答应了。路上,小老鼠饿得直叫,刘晓地便拿了些蜂蜜喂小老鼠,小老鼠吃得欢畅。

到了省城,客人拿三吱儿蘸佐料吃,甜甜咸咸的,都觉得与众不同。消息一出,多家争相要他供货,一时间,甜甜咸咸的三吱儿更是供不应求。

一天,途经中梅河,刘晓地顺便带着特产去看了看王老板。只见王老板愁眉苦脸,一见刘晓地便说:“你来得正好,我家里的老鼠闹翻了天,烦死了。”

刘晓地二话不说便开始帮王老板抓老鼠。在王老板家的房间的一个老鼠洞中,刘晓地抓了一窝老鼠,并且在里面发现了一支翠绿的玉簪。刘晓地拿着簪子对着光线照了照,晶莹剔透,一看便知道价值不菲。刘晓地愣了:如果将这无主的玉簪带出去卖,可以抵上自己辛辛苦苦数年的工钱。正当他准备将玉簪放到兜里时,突然想起了那袋米来,人家无缘无故地送我一袋米,救了我一家人的命,我可不能昧着良心。玉簪是在王老板家老鼠洞中发现的,或许是王老板家的。

 

吃晚饭的时候,刘晓地拿出簪子:“王老板,在你房里一个鼠洞中捡了支簪子,想必是你家的。”

王老板一见,大吃一惊:“这是我家祖传的玉簪,怎么会跑到老鼠洞中?”“这簪子是人用的,有异味,老鼠以为是食品,便搬到洞中。”刘晓地说道。“太感谢你了,没想到你这样拾金不昧,可帮了我的一个大忙。”刘晓地一头雾水:一個玉簪能帮你多大忙,你又不缺钱花?

三个多月后,刘晓地再次来到中梅河,他是按照协议来王氏食品厂抓老鼠的,同时他想弄清楚那玉簪到底是怎么回事。王老板不在家,一阵寒暄后,王妻遣散众人,让刘晓地跟她到房间来一趟。王妻虽然四十多岁,却保养得如同二三十岁少妇一般,加上天生丽质,白生生水灵灵的,如同天仙一样。今天,她邀刘晓地到房里,不知道这葫芦里卖的什么药?怀着忐忑不安的心情,刘晓地跟在王妻后面,来到房间里。只见王妻忽然关紧了房门,刘晓地的心头一揪:这该如何是好?

王妻打开一个箱子,从里面的夹层中拿出一沓纸来:“恩人,这是王氏食品的秘方,你可照此秘方,在朱仙镇开一家食品厂 ,包你生意兴隆。不久前,我们家老王还到你们那里考察过,那地方非常适合开一家食品厂 。”

刘晓地大惑不解:“你们家对我才有恩,无功不受禄,你为何赐我这么大的礼物?你不知道,数月前我受人一袋米,到今日如同昨日之事,一刻也不敢忘怀。”

“这事巧了,我们家老王在朱仙镇考察食品厂时,听人说有对年轻夫妻从早上一直借到傍晚,也未借到一粒粮食。救人一命,胜造七级浮屠,于是老王便买了一袋米装在那对夫妻家的枕头里。还真没想到,这好人真有好报。”王妻滔滔不绝地跟刘晓地道出了内情:她的玉簪被老鼠拖到洞中后,一直不敢跟王老板说,偏王老板又发现玉簪丢了,于是,便追问玉簪的下落。一再追问无果的情况下,将妻子送回娘家,进行冷处理。一旦找不出玉簪,很有可能休妻。没想到在关键时刻,刘晓地见钱眼不开,帮了她的一个大忙。

依靠绝密配方,刘晓地又收购了当地一家食品厂 ,进行改造。同时,利用出售三吱儿得来的资金做食品厂的启动资金。那年是个丰年,听说刘晓地家的食品好吃得不得了,朱仙镇每家每户都来买些过年。食品厂一直加工到腊月三十也未能满足人们的需求,刘晓地赚得盆满钵满,从此成为朱仙镇的首富。
