《劳拉》-6页

(2006-11-04 01:24:07)
分类: 翻译小说
“这次旅行,至少可以暂时断了你父亲的念头——就是让你带个社会可接受的男人回家,”莘济亚喃喃细语,把想法说了出来。其实,她丈夫,近来自己心痛地明白了,但他变得有点专横和缺乏情感。
劳拉笑了,那不是真实的心情。在她的生活里,男人是她最近所棘手的事。“的确是的。我会叫安吉励替我收拾行李。”
“那我就叫公关秘书到车站定票,”莘济亚赞同。“我肯定你会发现这次旅行是有意义的。”
“那个,”劳拉十分幽默答到,“我没有不相信哦。从我上次独自长途旅行后,已经过了很长时间了。”想起非洲,她的脸又绷紧了。“毕竟,德克萨斯不是非洲。”
莘济亚站起来。“宝贝,那热病不会经常复发的。从上次发作到现在已经有几个月了。不用担心了。别忘了还有柴斯特姨夫和海伦姨妈呢。他们会照顾你的。”
劳拉微微一笑。“当然,他们会的。这会是一次愉快的探险。”
"Among other things, this visit would at least give you respite from your father's attempts to bring socially acceptable young men home for you,"Cynthia murmured, thinking out loud. Her husband had, in fact, made himself painfully obvious of late, and he tended to be overbearing and a little insensitive.
Nora laughed, without real humor. A man in her life was the very last complication she needed. "Indeed it would. I shall have Angelina pack for me."
"And I shall have my social secretary make the necessary reservations at the train station," Cynthia agreed. " I'm sure that you will find the trip enlightening."
"Of that," her daughter replied with sparkling humor, "I have no doubt. It has been a long time since I traveled so far alone." Her face went taut with the memory of Africa. "But after all, Texas is not Africa."
Cynthia stood up. "My dear, it is unlikely that the fever will recur so often. It has been several months since your last bout. Try not to worry. Remember that Chester and Helen are family, won't you? They'll take care of you."
Nora smiled. "Of course they will. It will be a delightful adventure."
