《第九十八回白禽飞来报冤枉》[View] [Edit] [History]

1 第九十八回 白禽飞来报冤枉
2 断云:
3 阿吴妒忌遭迁配,刘氏申冤托白禽。
4 雪理以为残妇戒,包公正直鬼神钦。
5 传说包公守开封府时,京城有一富家姓吕名君宝,祖上豪富,积下金帛巨万,侍妾数十人。有一妾名惜惜,原是湖广襄阳府人氏,生得十分美貌,颇通文墨。当初君宝在襄阳为商之时,因八月中秋赏月,相遇于东街文魁坊下,二人两相注意,各有不忍舍之情,更深方散。次日君宝与家人小二商量,访问东街刘牙侩店中。牙侩云:「此女子是对门刘长官之女。刘长官为因去年出征,死于沙场,至今其母与惜惜同居,做些小生业度活。」君宝道:「彼若肯将惜惜嫁与我,她母我养之,终身不至落剥。」牙侩应诺,去见刘妈妈议亲事。刘母意下要见君宝人物如何,方肯将女儿嫁他。次日牙侩对君宝说知,君宝欢然,穿著齐整,来望刘妈妈。刘母见吕君人丰出众,意肯应承。刘惜惜在帘后望见,正是日前月下相会之人,不胜欢喜。
6 君宝既回店下,过数日,仗牙侩下了聘礼,便入赘于刘惜惜家。
7 二人相会之夕,极尽欢悦。
8 未半年,君宝带刘惜惜母女转家下见大妻吴氏。吴氏之父为团练使,他倚官为势,朝夕寻事相闹。刘妈妈悔之不及,气闷身死。阿吴见惜惜母已亡,妒忌愈生。君宝是爱惜惜,不能庇她。吴氏每日频频打骂,惜惜忍气不过,一日自缢而死。君宝忧念恸切,遂密地埋葬了。
9 周年馀,惜惜冤魂不散,忽变做一只白禽飞去。一日,小塘村有一人捕得白飞禽一只,奇异可爱,遂擎去献包拯。拯一见大喜,问其人名姓。答云:「姓曾名景,住居小塘村。」拯赐之酒与钱一贯,景拜谢而去。拯遂令李吉笼养此禽,一日不觉跳出笼外飞去。李吉烦恼,遂追逐至君宝家书院前柳树上,泊良久,飞下池水中而去。李吉归告于拯。拯曰:「此必有缘故。」即差人去放乾池水,掘开看有何物。公吏回报:「锄地深五尺馀,见有一棺木,内有一妇人,年方二八。」拯随即差官检验妇人尸骸。官吏回申:「妇人身上有数处伤痕,项下有麻绳缢痕。」拯遂迫唤君宝来问根原。君宝复道:「此是吾妾,因去年身死,葬于池畔。」拯道:「既是汝妾,缘何遍身打痕,项下又有麻绳缢痕?从实说来。」君宝推不肯招。拯又差人追唤妻阿吴到厅根究之。阿吴惊惧,供具:「是本家一妾,名惜惜,因奴打骂她,遂自缢而死。」拯判云:「惜惜系是逼犯而死,本合偿命,为是雇主,阿吴编管邻近军州居住,永不得回乡;君宝系治家不正,减一等,罚铜钱五百头入官。」嗟乎!
10 若无包公之明,刘氏之冤从何雪哉?此亦可为残暴妒妇之警耳。
