Suliman is a young hunter of Salar nationality. There are two kinds of weapons around him: the first is a treasure bow, which can shoot tigers in the mountains and rocs in the clouds; The second is a treasured knife, which can split mountains and sweep forests. Every year and month, Suliman wears deep forests, runs mountains, shoots birds and hunts wild animals. He is unrestrained and lives a hard and bold Hunter life. There are also male and female larks in the sky. They fly together. How happy they are! The hares on the grass, as well as a male and a female, play and chase, live in the same cave, how harmonious! Suliman, a young hunter, was twenty-five years old. He thought he needed a good girl to be his lifelong partner. So Suliman left his hometown to invite tourists to the remote mountains and grasslands to find a satisfactory person. On this day, Suliman came to the foot of a big mountain. There is a calm and clear lake at the foot of the mountain. When the traveler was tired of walking, he sat down on a large bluestone beside the lake to have a rest. A skylark in the sky is singing gently. The lake is like a mirror, and the scenery on the shore is clearly illuminated. Suliman was in a trance when, suddenly, the lark’s happy song turned into a sad cry. It fluttered its wings and gradually fell towards the middle of the lake. Suliman was wondering, but he saw the head of a water snake rising straight from the water in the middle of the lake. The water snake is sucking the lark with its mouth open and its eyes bulging! Seeing that the skylark was about to fall into the mouth of the water snake, Suliman couldn’t bear it. Then he drew out his bow, put on his feather arrow, and shot at the water snake. Without deviation or inclination, an arrow hit the snake’s head. Water snake “ Hiss ” With a cry, he sank to the bottom of the water. The skylark, just flapped its wings again and climbed into the sky. Under the white clouds, it was flying and singing: sulimango, thank you! Sulimango, thank you! The calm water was temporarily disturbed by the water snake with arrows. When the ripples disappeared and the water was clear and quiet again, Suliman suddenly saw a girl in the mirror like bright lake. How beautiful the girl is! She smiles with a smile and looks at the young hunter with deep eyes. Suliman loved it more and more. He could not help whispering to the girls in the lake. ??“ Lovely girl& rdquo; He said, “ Are you the goddess of the Dragon Palace? If you like me, please come ashore &mdash& mdash; Suliman, the hunter, is not a heartless man& rdquo; Suliman was so silly that he suddenly heard someone “ Pooh& rdquo; He gave a laugh. He was shocked. When he looked back, he saw a girl standing quietly on the hillside, looking at him and smiling. The girl was just like the one he had just seen in the water &mdash& mdash; It turned out that what appeared in the lake was not a goddess, but the shadow of a girl standing on the hillside. This girl’s name is valya. She is the only daughter of Yusuf, an old hunter on the mountain. That day, she came to the lake to draw water. From a distance, she saw a strange man sitting by the lake. When she saw the young man save the skylark, she could see that he had a good heart; He also saw that his bows and arrows hit a hundred times, proving that he had good skills. Later, when the girl heard the young man say those infatuated words to her shadow reflected in the lake, she listened and couldn’t help “ Pooh& rdquo; A laugh &mdash& mdash; Before she knew it, she had become very fond of this strange young man. The young couple met at the lakeside to have heart to heart talks. The more they talked, the more they speculated. It was not until the shadow of the sun slanted westward that they accompanied the old hunter to his home. Suliman visited Yusuf, explained his identity and personality, and asked the old hunter to betroth his beloved daughter valya to him. The old hunter looked at Suliman and his daughter and said with a smile: “ Hu Da! It seems that my Valeria likes you very much. However, there must be a dowry for marriage. Young man! Go and get a silver fox fur robe. Let’s talk about it later. Within ten days, bring this dress& rdquo; After Suliman left the old man, valya said to him: “ This is my father trying your skills. All the wild foxes on the ground around here have been wiped out by my father. Only behind the snow mountain in the South can we find the silver fox. But, Shanda Lusheng, who will take you& rdquo; Just as he was saying this, he heard a bird singing in the sky: sulimango! Don’t worry; To find silver fox, I’ll take you! It turned out that this bird was the skylark saved by the young hunter from the mouth of the water snake. The lark flew in front of it, and Suliman followed. Go through the hundred mile grassland and come to a big snow mountain. The big snow mountain is so high! Big snow mountain is so dangerous! The mountains are covered with snow and ice. There is no way for people to walk, and there are no trees or grass to climb! Just halfway up the mountain, he slipped and fell far away. Suliman was not afraid of setbacks and climbed hard time after time. Larks sing for him in the sky. It took a lot of effort to climb the snow mountain and enter a big forest. In the forest, bear, deer, tiger and leopard, Fox and rabbit &hellip& hellip; All kinds of wild animals and beasts come and go in groups. The young hunter was not afraid at all. He lurked and searched in the deep forest. Hungry, eat a few mouthfuls of the dry food that Valeria gave him. Thirsty, hold some snow in your mouth. In this way, after seven days and seven nights, he shot down five of the best silver haired old foxes. He hurried back with his skin on his back. He gave the fox skin to valya, and the girl spent two days and two nights making a light, soft and beautiful leather dress. It was the morning of the tenth day that Suliman presented the silver fox fur coat to the old hunter.

Yusuf, the old hunter, took the fox fur coat and looked at it with a smile on his face: “ Ha! Yes, this is a good leather coat; However, it would be more beautiful if three cat’s eye round gems could be added to the leather coat &mdash& mdash; Valya! What do you say& rdquo; Waliya knew that it was dad who was having a problem again. She smiled and replied: “ I see, without precious stones, this dress is beautiful enough& rdquo; The old hunter shook his head and said: “ A beautiful girl is worthy of a hero; The luxurious fox fur is bright only when it is decorated with brilliant gemstones& rdquo; Suliman is a competitive young man. As soon as the old man said so, no matter whether the gem is easy to find or not, he promised. Young man& rdquo; The old hunter said, “ You should do it quickly. You’d better find the gem within three days& rdquo; Suliman said goodbye to the old man and came out. The girl complained to him and said: “ Alas, why did you say yes so rashly! You know this kind of cat’s eye gem is the most rare& rdquo; The young hunter replied firmly: “ For you, even the stars in the sky, I will take them off& rdquo; ??“ Hey, in that case, go find it& rdquo; The girl said, “ According to legend, the stone mountain in the west is called ‘ Baoshi mountain ’, There are three cat’s eye round gems in Baoshi mountain. But I don’t know where it is? He said there was a devil guarding it. It depends on your real skills& rdquo; Just then, suddenly the lark began to sing in the sky: sulimango! Don’t worry; If you want to find a gem, please follow me! So Suliman followed the lark to the West. After a whole day and night, I came to the foot of a majestic stone mountain. The stone mountain is steep and the peak is high. I saw birds circling and no one walking along the road. The brave Suliman, led by the skylark, climbed up hard. The sharp rocks cut the palms and soles of his feet. Every step he took left several blood marks! The bloodstain was from the root of the mountain to the top of the mountain. The young hunter finally reached the highest peak of the stone mountain. On the top of the mountain, there was a big red stone crouching in front of a cliff like a monster. The lark flew down on the big red stone, “ Boom, boom, boom& rdquo; Three pecks. Suddenly, the strange stone moved, twisted his waist, and became a scared devil. The devil shouted: “ Woo! What caterpillar dares to peck my head& rdquo; With that, he reached out his huge hand, which was the size of a dustpan, and went to catch the lark. Smart lark, “ Purr & rdquo; He spread his wings and flew away from the devil’s fingers. The lark was flying and spinning in the air, singing: sulimango! Fast archery; Don’t worry about other places. Shoot it in two eyes! Suliman listened, hurriedly picked up his bow and arrow, and shot at the devil& ldquo; Zheng ” The devil went blind in his left eye. The hunter was about to shoot again, but he saw that the devil roared with fire in his mouth and rushed towards Suliman. Before Suliman’s arrow reached the bow, the devil’s big hand had caught it. The hunter hurriedly flashed. The tip of the devil’s paw touched the hunter’s right cheek and tore away a large piece of skin. Suliman resisted the pain, drew out his treasured knife, braved the demon fire from the devil, and cut it hard. He just listened to “ Click ” With a sound, the devil was cut in two from the top of his head. Immediately, “ Hua La ” At once, two stone doors on the cliff opened, and three cat’s eye round gems shone green in the cave. Suliman threw himself into the cave, grabbed three gems and walked down the mountain. Along the way, he was very happy, regardless of the burning pain on his cheek. When approaching the lake at the foot of the vallya mountain, Suliman reflected the bright lake water like a mirror and carefully studied his face. He was not surprised. It turned out that his wound was very serious. A piece of flesh on his right cheek was torn off and formed a big scar; Half of his right ear was torn, one eye was askew, and half of his hair was burned bald by the devil fire. He was a handsome young man, but now he becomes ugly! The more he looked, the more he felt inferior and hated himself. He hated that he had become such an ugly face. How could he go to see the beautiful Valeria! Suliman sat around the lake for a long time in frustration. Suddenly, he threw out the three cat’s-eye gems he had held in his hand. Just listen to the lake “ Goo Dong Dong ” Three sounds, splashing water droplets on the lake, rippling layer by layer; The rare treasure, which had been obtained with great pains, sank deeply to the bottom of the lake! The young hunter made up his mind never to see Miss valya again. He made great strides towards the road of his hometown. As he was walking, he heard the sound of horses’ hoofs behind him, and someone shouted his name. Suliman looked back and saw that miss valya, riding a red horse, had caught up with him. The young hunter had no time to hide, so he covered his face tightly with his hands and turned away without looking at the girl. It turned out that the lark had flown away and told the old hunter and his daughter everything that had happened. Yusuf, the old hunter, hurried to send his daughter waliya to run after Suliman. The girl chased him, jumped down, took the young hunter by the hand, kissed his injured cheek warmly, and said: “ Come on, honey! What I love is not your appearance &mdash& mdash; You have a pure and kind heart, you have a brave and firm will; These two virtues are more precious than threehundred cat’s Eye gems! Come on, let’s go to see Abba. He is waiting for you &hellip& hellip;& rdquo; When the young men and women walked up the mountain side by side, the old hunter Yusuf, with a smile on his face, welcomed them out of the door. ??“ Congratulations, young man& rdquo; The old hunter said enthusiastically, “ I am proud of my daughter for finding such a son-in-law& hellip;& hellip;& rdquo; At this time, we heard the lark flying in the sky and singing in a joyful voice: Congratulations, Congratulations! A good couple! Congratulations, Congratulations! Never leave forever!
