Before half a year had gone by, his father fell ill andcould not leave his bed. Shi Jin brought doctors fromnear and far, but none of them could save him. To thesorrow of all, the old man died. Shi Jin prepared a coffinand outer casket, in which his father was laid, richlydressed, and he hired Buddhist monks to conduct sevenservices, one every seven days, to pray for the departedsquire. He also paid Taoist priests to chant prayers en-suring the passage of his father's soul straight to heaven.There were more than ten of these services. He then se-lected an auspicious day for the funeral. All of the threeor four hundred families in the village attended, dressedin mourning. Squire Shi was buried in the ancestral cem-etery on a hillside west of the village. Now there was no one to look after Shi Jin's house-hold affairs. The young man cared nothing for farming.His only interest was in finding people with whom hecould match skill at arms. Three or four months passed. It was the middle of thesixth lunar month, and very hot. Shi Jin sat on a folding-chair beneath a willow on the edge of the threshing-ground outside the manor, seeking a breath of cool air.He had nothing to do. A breeze wafted in from the pinegrove opposite. "How refreshing," thought Shi Jin.
