My name is Lifu. I was born in Long Jing village, Shi Keng town, Meizhou city of GuangDong province. I am 47 years old and I lived in the remote mountain village since I was young. I was always a quite honest person. In early 2008, I moved to Meizhou city to become a boiler man in a company. My wife works in Shenzhen, so our daughter lives with her aunt. We lead a steady and comfortable life, though our family members can’t get together very often.
In August 2010, I met Zhang Xueya, a newly arrived packing worker in the company. She was in her early 30s, medium height with fair complexion, and very charming. She attracted many male co-workers upon arriving but I clearly knew my limitations. I worked part-time as a porter in her department to make extra money as usual, but it seemed as though fate put us together. In my memory, it was a rainy day and the floor was very slippery. Other people weren’t willing to work early but I went to earn extra money. At the time when I felt very tired after carrying several loads of goods, Zhang Xueya appeared and lent me a helping hand. While we were working she talked with me gently and comforted me with sweet words. I felt very warm and touched.
After that, we started to chat every now and then and gradually she appeared beside me more often. In addition to being from the same town, there were more common topics between us and we became closer. Often she asked me to go shopping with her when I was free, but despite her persitane I turned her down because of lack of money. Later it seemed she understood what I was worrying about, so she started to drag me out saying she had enough money and just wanted me to accompany her. I could not refuse this gentle and understanding invitation and started to go out with her. She treated me to meals and bought me new clothes. When I was on the night shift, she would wait for me and we had late night snacks together. When she learned that I rented an apartment and lived alone, she became more active. She came to my apartment, cooked meals for me and washed my clothes. Finally I could not resist her ambiguous temptation, had sex with her. From that time, Zhang Xueya often came to visit me in my rented apartment and we kept up our relationship.
One day in July 2011, she came to me with a lot of books, saying how wonderful they were. She said to me “I have been practicing Falun Gong. It is very helpful to cultivate our mind and become a right person. Finally we can become a God and Buddha. You shall practice with me.” At that time I knew that Falun Gong was forbidden by law and I did not have any intention to practice since I already lacked enough money to live my life. So I refused her. Suddenly she became very mad saying that I did not understand her good intention and if I refused to practice with her, she would never see me again. Finally I had to follow her since I became more and more dependent on her. She restored her gentleness to me as I promised to practice and from that moment I started my experience with Falun Gong.
Actually, I had no interest in Falun Gong, but any time I had the idea to quit, she would encourage me by giving me some “sweet taste,” making me more and more obedient. Later she started to teach me Falun Gong movements, leading me into the trap. In the latter days, she came to “look after” me every day and asked me to read Falun Gong books, listen to tapes, sit in meditation, transcribe the scriptures and practice it together. If I did it well, we could make out for a while. If not, she would slam the door and leave immediately.
My wife came to visit me in Meizhou city since I had not contacted her for a long time. She learnt that I was practicing Falun Gong with Zhang Xueya and became very angry. She advised me earnestly that Falun Gong was a cult and asked me to get away from Zhang. She also promised that my daughter and her would forgive me if I stopped practicing and left Zhang. At that time I felt very confused. Who should I believe in, my wife or Zhang Xueya?
Zhang Xueya said sternly, “Falun Gong is an ultimate law of the universe. There is only one way not to be destroyed, and that is to believe in Falun Gong.” I was afraid of being destroyed and was still addicted to Zhang Xueya. I moved out of the rented apartment to avoid my wife. My wife did not give up, but I always said bad words to her or even beat her. At that time, my friends and relatives all came to me to ask me not to continue practicing, but I was possessed by evil and could not hear one word against Zhang. I continued practice Falun Gong and finally was caught by the police. Zhang Xueya, who had once taken “special care of me”, disappeared totally after I was caught.
My wife was desperate and disappointed with me. She never came back and my family was broken from then on.
