1 牛爽:
永泰中。牛爽授盧州別駕。將之任,有乳母乘驢,為鐙研破股。歲餘。瘡不差。一旦苦瘡痒,抑搔之,若蟲行狀。忽有數蟬,從瘡中飛出,集庭樹,悲鳴竟夕。家人命巫卜之,有女巫頗通神鬼,巫至。向樹呵之,咄咄語。。"語"原作"人",據明鈔本改。。詰之,答:見一鬼黑衣冠,據枝間,以手指蟬以導,其詞曰。東堂下,余所處。享我致福,欺我致禍及三女。巫又言。黑衣者竈神耳。爽不信之,網蟬殺之,逐巫者。後歲餘。無異變。爽有三女,在閨房。夏月夜褰闈。爽忽覺前牀有一長大尸。白衾覆而殭臥。爽大怖,私語其妻,妻見甚懾。爽嘗畜寶劒。潛取擊之,劃然而內驚叫。及燭,失其鬼,而閨中長女腰斷矣,流血滿地,爽驚慟失據。大小亂哭,莫知其由。既後半年,夜晦冥,爽列燈於奧,方寢心動,驚覺。又見前鬼在牀。爽神迷,倉卒復刎之,斷去。閨中亂喧,次女又斷腰矣。舉家惶振,議者令爽徙居,明鬼神不可與競,爽終不改。明年又見,卒殺三女。而親友強徙之他第,爽抱疾亦卒,果如蟬言。後有華岳道士褚乘霞,善驅除,素與爽善,聞之而來。郡以是宅凶,廢之。霞至獨入,結壇守。其日暮。內聞雷霆搜索。及明,發屋拔木。道士告郡,命鍬鍤。發登下丈餘。得古墳。銘曰卓女墳。道士說,宵中,初有甲兵與霞戰,鬼敗而潰散。須臾,有一女子,年二十許,叩頭謝,言是卓女郎。霞讓之,答曰。非某過也,宿命有素。值爽及女命盡,且不修德,而強梁誣欺,自當爾。乘霞遂徙其墳,宅後不復凶矣。出《通幽錄》
