Before half a year had gone by, his father fell ill and could not leave his bed. Shi Jin brought doctors from near and far, but none of them could save him. To the sorrow of all, the old man died. Shi Jin prepared a coffin and outer casket, in which his father was laid, richly dressed, and he hired Buddhist monks to conduct seven services, one every seven days, to pray for the departed squire. He also paid Taoist priests to chant prayers ensuring the passage of his father's soul straight to heaven.There were more than ten of these services. He then selected an auspicious day for the funeral. All of the three or four hundred families in the village attended, dressed in mourning. Squire Shi was buried in the ancestral cemetery on a hillside west of the village. Now there was no one to look after Shi Jin's house-hold affairs. The young man cared nothing for farming.His only interest was in finding people with whom he could match skill at arms. Three or four months passed. It was the middle of the sixth lunar month, and very hot. Shi Jin sat on a folding-chair beneath a willow on the edge of the threshing-ground outside the manor, seeking a breath of cool air.He had nothing to do. A breeze wafted in from the pinegrove opposite. How refreshing," thought Shi Jin.
