There lived only two nuns, one an old one and the other a young one.One morning, the old nun said to the young one, “There is no salt in the nunnery. Go to the town under the mountain and buy some salt.”The young nun listened to the old nun and said, “Master, I’m going to buy salt now.”With that the young nun went out of the nunnery.After about one joss stick time, the young nun came to the road at the foot of the mountain, which leads to the town six miles away.Suddenly, the young nun found a roadside grass, lying a man, looks like a man about 20 years old, the body has injuries.She hurried to the man’s side and asked, “Who are you?”The man said, “I am a scholar in the town. My name is Sun Xiaowen. This morning, an army suddenly came to the town.The young nun said, “I’m going to the town to buy salt, but I can’t go to the town. I’ll take you to a nunnery, where you can recuperate.”Sun Xiaowen listened to the young nun said: “Thank you!”Next, the young nun helped Sun Xiaowen up, and then helped Sun Xiaowen to walk up the hill.The young nun helped Sun Xiaowen into the nunnery, the old nun came up.The young nun simply to the old nun said sun Xiaowen’s situation, the old nun said to Sun Xiaowen: “Donor, in the future you in the nunnery recuperate!Get well before you go.”From then on, Sun Xiaowen stayed in the nunnery to recuperate.Three months later, Sun Xiaowen’s injury healed, when Sun Xiaowen was preparing to leave the nunnery, one day at noon, Sun Xiaowen was having lunch with two nuns, suddenly a group of soldiers broke into the nunnery.The old nun said to the young nun and Sun Xiaowen, “Run away through the back door and I’ll hold them off.”The young nun said, “Master, you will come with us.”The old nun said, “Go quickly, or it will be too late.”Finally, the young nun and Sun Xiaowen escaped to a cave through the back door of the nunnery.The next morning, the young nun and Sun Xiaowen quietly came to the nunnery outside, they made sure there were no soldiers in the nunnery, went into the nunnery.When they entered the nunnery, they found the corpse of the old nun.
