1 嵩山客:
元和初,嵩山有五六客,皆寄山習業者也。初秋,避熱於二帝塔下。日晚,於塔下見一大蛇長數丈,蟠繞塔心。去地繞塔心去地五字原作駭而觀之。據明鈔本改。十數丈。衆駭而觀之。一客曰:「可充脯食之廚。」咸和之,中一客善射。或曰:「大者或龍神,殺之恐為禍也。晝脯之膳,豈在此乎。不如勿為。」諸客決議,不可復止,善射發一箭,便中,再箭,蛇蟠解墜地。衆共殺之。諸客各務庖事,操刀剸割者,或有入寺求柴炭鹽酤者。其勸不取者,色不樂,遂辭而歸。其去寺數里,時天色已陰,天雷忽起。其中亦有各歸者,而數客猶在塔下。須臾,雲霧大合,遠近晦冥。雨雹如瀉。飄風四捲,折木走石,雷雹激怒,山川震蕩。數人皆震死於塔下,有先歸者,路亦死。其一客不欲殺者,未到山居,投一空蘭若。闔門。電電隨客入。大懼。自省且非同謀,令其見害,乃大言曰:「某不與諸人共殺此蛇,神理聰明,不可濫罰無辜。幸宜詳審。」言訖,雷霆併收,風雨消歇。此客獨存。出《原化記》
