Beyond the gates, Xiao Guan’s guard booth sits on the left. Take a few more steps and you’ll find Lao Huang’s fruit stall.

Xiao Guan has been a security guard his whole life. When he was younger, his glare and shout were enough to inspire fear in anyone. after losing some of his teeth, his voice seemed to lose its menacing edge. His authority seemed to wane even by the gate he’s dutifully watched all these years. But one particular altercation over parking fees, when his angry yells echoed across the apartment complex, reminded people that, despite his age, it’s best not to cross him. That is until a dispute with a motorcyclist blocking the path resulted in Xiao Guan receiving a vicious beating. It turns out that, to a hotheaded kid, a balding, toothless old man deserves about as much respect as a misbehaving dog.

As for Lao Huang, he’s witnessed each and every one of these happenings. Since he started this fruit stand, he’s seen it all. Many of the minor events have all been forgotten, but some of the more memorable events have been passed down via word of mouth.

As it turns out, there isn’t much of a difference between the history of a community and the history of our world. No one can say for certain how many people were there, how many games have been played, how many arguments have occurred, or how many scandals have taken place. Some stories are constantly retold, some stories change over time, and some stories are slowly forgotten.

小区进大铁门,朝左是小官的传达室,挨着是老黄的水果摊。

小官看了一辈子大门,年轻时圆眼一瞪,大嗓一吼,像打劫的那样让人害怕。自从丢了好几粒牙,说话开始有点漏风,连大铁门周围都渐渐不再是他的地盘了。因为停车费被人呛声,小官会隔着几栋楼大声喊回去,让人觉得瘦死的骆驼比马大。直到有天被电瓶车挡道的年轻人按在地上,脑勺上爆发出一阵咚咚咚沉闷的敲打声——原来在年轻人眼里,一个落了牙的看门老光头跟他养的老狗也没什么区别了。

而老黄的摊头,见证着这每一场大大小小的战火。这摊头自树立以来,日复一日,经年累月,小战役渐渐被遗忘,只有那几桩反复被人说起的大事,终于被人们口口相传而垂于史册。

原来,一个小区和一个世界的历史是毫无差别的。聚集过多少人,打过多少副牌,飞过多少唾沫星子,流传过多少件轰动一时的喜报或丑闻,谁也讲不清楚。有的活得长久,有的说没就没了;有的常说常新,版本多变,也有的,悄无声息地,被渐渐遗忘。
