삼국지 인물 찾아보기

Chapter 028-05 삼형제의 재회

商議已定。次日,玄德入見袁紹,告曰:「劉景升鎮守荊襄九郡,兵精糧足,宜與相約,共攻曹操。」紹曰:「吾嘗遣使約之,奈彼未肯相從。」玄德曰:「此人是備同宗,備往說,必無推阻。」紹曰:「若得劉表,勝劉辟多矣。」遂命玄德行。紹又曰:「近聞關雲長已離了曹操,欲來河北;吾當殺之,以雪顏良,文醜,之恨!」玄德曰:「明公前欲用之,吾故召之。今何又欲殺之耶?且顏良、文醜比之二鹿耳,雲長乃一虎也。失二鹿而得一虎,何恨之有?」紹笑曰:「吾固愛之,故戲言耳。公可再使人召之,令其速來。」玄德曰:「即遣孫乾往召之可也。」

紹大喜從之。玄德出,簡雍進曰:「玄德此去,必不回矣。某願與偕往;一則同說劉表,二則監住玄德。」紹然其言,便命簡雍與玄德同行。郭圖諫紹曰:「劉備前去說劉辟,未見成事;今又使與簡雍同往荊州,必不返矣。」紹曰:「汝勿多疑,簡雍自有見識。」郭圖嗟呀而出。

卻說玄德先命孫乾出城,問報關公;一面與簡雍辭了袁紹,上馬出城。行至界首,孫乾接著,同往關定莊上。關公迎門接拜,執手啼哭不止。關定領二子拜於草堂之前。玄德問其姓名。關公曰:「此人與弟同姓,有二子:長子關寧,學文;次子關平,學武。」關定曰:「今愚意欲遣次子跟隨關將軍,未識肯容納否?」玄德曰:「年幾何矣?」定曰:「十八歲矣。」玄德曰:「既蒙長者厚意,吾弟尚未有子,今即以賢郎為子,若何?」關定大喜,便命關平拜關公為父,呼玄德為伯父。玄德恐袁紹追之,急收拾起行。關平隨著關公,一齊起身。關定送了一程自回。關公教取路往臥牛山來。
 
正行間,忽見周倉引數十人帶傷而來。關公引他見了玄德。問其何故受傷,倉曰:「某未至臥牛山之前,先有一將單騎而來,與裴元紹交鋒,只一合,刺死裴元紹,盡數招降人伴,占住山寨。倉到彼招誘人伴時,止有這幾個過來,餘者俱懼怕,不敢擅離。倉不忿,與那將交戰,被他連勝數次,身中三槍;因此來報主公。」玄德曰:「此人怎生模樣?姓甚名誰?」倉曰:「極其雄壯,不知姓名。」

於是關公縱馬當先,玄德在後,逕投臥牛山來。周倉在山下叫罵,只見那將全副披挂,持槍驟馬,引眾下山。玄德早揮鞭出馬大叫曰:「來者莫非子龍否?」那將見了玄德,滾鞍下馬,拜伏道旁。原來果然是趙子龍。玄德,關公,俱下馬相見,問其何由至此。雲曰:「雲自別使君,不想公孫瓚不聽人言,以致兵敗自焚。袁紹屢次招雲。雲想紹亦非用人之人,因此未往。後欲至徐州投使君,又聞徐州失守,雲長已歸曹操,使君又在袁紹處。雲幾番欲來相投,只恐袁紹見怪。四海飄零,無容身之地。前偶過此處,適遇裴元紹下山來欲奪吾馬,雲因殺之,借此安身。近聞翼德在古城,欲往投之,未知真實。今幸得遇使君!」

玄德大喜,訴說從前之事。關公亦訴前事。玄德曰:「吾初見子龍,便有留戀不捨之情。今幸得相遇!」雲曰:「雲奔走四方,擇主而事,未有如使君者。今得相隨,大稱平生。雖肝腦塗地,無恨矣。」
 
當日就燒毀山寨,率領人眾,盡隨玄德前赴古城。張飛,糜竺,糜芳,迎接入城,各相拜訴。二夫人具言雲長之事,玄德感歎不已。於是殺牛宰馬,先拜謝天地,然後遍勞諸軍。玄德見兄弟重聚,將佐無缺,又新得了趙雲,關公又得了關平,周倉,二人,歡喜無限,連飲數日。後人有詩讚之曰:

當時手足似瓜分,信斷音稀杳不聞。
今日君臣重聚義,正如龍虎會風雲。

        [三國誌詩028-p01]

時玄德,關,張,趙雲,孫乾,簡雍,糜竺,糜芳,關平,周倉,統領馬步軍校共四五千人。玄德欲棄了古城去守汝南,恰好劉辟,龔都,差人來請。於是遂起軍往汝南駐紮,招軍買馬,徐圖征進,不在話下。

且說袁紹見玄德不回,大怒,欲起兵伐之。郭圖曰:「劉備不足慮。曹操乃勁敵也,不可不除。劉表雖據荊州,不足為強。江東孫伯符威鎮三江,地連六郡,謀臣武士極多,可使人結之,共攻曹操。」紹從其言,即修書遣陳震為使,來會孫策。正是:

只因河北英雄去,引出江東豪傑來。

        [三國誌詩028-p02]

未知其事如何,且看下文分解。
 
141 Having settled their plans, Liu Bei soon went in to see his protector and suggested, "Liu Biao is strong and well posted. His help should be sought against our enemy."

142 "I have sent messengers repeatedly to ask his help," said Yuan Shao, "but he is unwilling."

143 "As he and I are of the same family, he will not refuse me if I go and ask him," said Liu Bei.

144 "Certainly he is worth much more than Liu Pi. You shall go."

145 "I have just heard," Yuan Shao continued, "that Guan Yu has left Cao Cao and wants to come here. If he does, I will put him to death out of revenge for my two beloved generals---Yan Liang and Wen Chou."

146 "Illustrious Sir, you wished to employ him and so I sent for him. Now you threaten to put him to death. The two men he slew were but deer compared with such a tiger as he is. When you exchange a couple of deer for a tiger, you need not complain of the bargain."

147 "Really I like him," said Yuan Shao. "I was only joking. You can send another messenger for him and tell him to come soon."

148 "May I send Sun Qian for him?"

149 "Certainly."

150 After Liu Bei had gone, Jian Yong came in and said to Yuan Shao, "If Liu Bei goes, he will not come back. I had better go to speak to Liu Biao. And I can keep a watch on Liu Bei."

151 Yuan Shao agreed and issued orders for both to go.

152 On the subject of the mission, Guo Tu came in to his chief to dissuade him.

153 Said Guo Tu, "Liu Bei went to speak to Liu Pi, but he accomplished nothing. Now you are sending Jian Yong with him, and I am sure neither will ever return."

154 "Do not be too suspicious," said Yuan Shao. "Jian Yong is clever enough."

155 That was the end of the interview. Forthwith Liu Bei sent Sun Qian back to Guan Yu and then, with Jian Yong, took leave of Yuan Shao and rode out of the city, As soon as they reached the border line, they met Sun Qian and all three rode off to Guan Ding's farm to meet Guan Yu. He came out to welcome them, bowed and then seized his brother's hands while tears streamed down his face.

156 Presently the two sons of their host came to bow to the visitors. Liu Bei asked their names.

157 "These are of the same name as myself," said Guan Yu. "The sons are Guan Neng, who is a student, and Guan Ping, who is to be a soldier."

158 "I have been thinking of sending the younger in your train, General," said old Guan Ding, "Would you take him?"

159 "What is his age?" said Liu Bei.

160 "He is eighteen."

161 Liu Bei said, "Since, O Senior, you are so kind, I venture to suggest that your son should be adopted by my brother, who has no son of his own. What think you of that?"

162 Guan Ding was perfectly willing, so he called Guan Ping and bade him make a son's obeisance to Guan Yu and to style Liu Bei "Uncle."

163 Then it was time to get on their way lest they should be pursued, and with Guan Yu went Guan Ping. Guan Ding and Guan Ning escorted them a long distance and then returned.

164 The party took the road to Sleeping Bull Mountain. Before they had gone very far, they met Zhou Cang with a small party. He was wounded. He was introduced to Liu Bei who asked him how it was.

165 He replied, "Before I reached the hill, a certain warrior all alone, had fought with my friend Pei Yuanshao and killed him. Then many of our troops surrendered to him, and he occupied our old camp. When I reached it, I tried to allure the soldiers back to my side but only succeeded with a few. The others were too afraid. I got angry and engaged the interloper, who however worsted me time after time and wounded me thrice."

166 "Who is the warrior? What does he look like?" asked Liu Bei.

167 "All I know he is a doughty fighter, I do not know his name."

168 Thereafter they advanced toward the hill with Guan Yu in front and Liu Bei in rear. When they drew near, Zhou Cang began to abuse his enemy, who soon appeared, mailed and armed, coming down the hill like a tornado.

169 Suddenly Liu Bei rode out waving his whip and shouting, "O Zhao Zilong, I am here to look for you!"

170 Indeed the rider was Zhao Zilong. He instantly slipped out of the saddle and bowed by the roadside.

171 Liu Bei dismounted to talk with him and ask how he came to be there.

172 "When I left you, I had no idea that Gongsun Zan was a man who would listen to no reason. The result was disaster, and he perished in the flames. Yuan Shao invited me to him several times, but I thought too little of him to go. Then I wanted to go to Xuzhou to you, but you had lost that place, and Guan Yu had gone over to Cao Cao, and you had joined Yuan Shao. Several times I thought of coming to you, but I feared Yuan Shao. So I drifted from one place to another with nowhere to rest till I happened to come this way, and Pei Yuanshao tried to steal my horse. So I slew him and took possession of his camp. I heard Zhang Fei was in Gucheng but thought it might be only a rumor. And so the days have passed till this happy meeting."

173 Liu Bei told Zhao Zilong all that had happened to him since they parted, and so did Guan Yu.

174 Said Liu Bei, "The first time I saw you, I felt drawn to you and did not want to part from you. I am very happy to meet you again."

175 "In all my wanderings, trying to find a lord worth serving, I have seen no one like you. Now I have reached your side, that is enough for all my life. I care not what may happen to me."

176 Next they burned the camp on Sleeping Bull Mountain, after which they all took the road back to Gucheng where they were welcomed. They exchanged the stories of their several adventures, and the two ladies related the valiant deeds of Guan Yu whereat Liu Bei was too affected to speak.

177 Then they performed a great sacrifice to Heaven and Earth with the slaughter of a bull and a horse.

178 The soldiers also were recompensed for their toils. Liu Bei surveyed the conditions around him and found therein much to rejoice at. His two brothers were restored to his side and none of his helpers were missing. Moreover he had gained Zhao Zilong, and Guan Yu had acquired an adopted son Guan Ping. Another commander had joined his ranks in the person of Zhou Cang. There was every occasion for feasting and gratification.

179 Scattered wide were the brothers, none knew another's retreat,
Joyfully now they foregather, dragon and tigers meet.

180 At this time the forces under the command of Liu Bei, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Zhao Zilong, Sun Qian, Jian Yong, Mi Zhu, Mi Fang, Guan Ping, and Zhou Cang numbered four or five thousand soldiers. Liu Bei was in favor of leaving Gucheng and occupying Runan, and just then Liu Pi and Gong Du, the commanders of that city, sent to invite him to go there. So they went. There they devoted all their efforts to strengthen their army, both horse and foot.

181 Yuan Shao was much annoyed when Liu Bei did not return and at first was for sending a force after him. However Guo Tu dissuaded him.

182 "Liu Bei needs cause you no anxiety. Cao Cao is your one enemy and must be destroyed. Even Liu Biao, though strongly posted on River Han, is none too terrible. There is Sun Ce on the southeast of the Great River, strong, feared, with wide domain of six territories, a large army, and able counselors and leaders; you should make an alliance there against Cao Cao."

183 Guo Tu won his chief to his view and wrote to Sun Ce, sending the letter by Chen Zhen.

184 Just as one warrior leaves the north, 
Another from the east comes forth.

185 Future chapters will reveal the outcome of these dispositions.
