第九章
   打耳光的声音还未消失,卡巴顿腾然从椅子上喷发出来,劳拉的父亲就直直仰卧在地板上了。  
  ‘你是--儿子'卡巴顿咬掉余下的字。他监视着年长的男人,拳头握得紧紧的,在他的旁边等着,看上去活像恶棍似的凶狠,莘济亚起先就是误认为他是恶棍。‘你再碰她一下,我扭断你这该死的脖子!'他甚至没有提高嗓门,可是那声音里的恐吓是很明显的。他的姿势只是吓唬人的。还有他苍白的眼睛的冷酷的威胁,以及他说话的权威,连索姆威勒也吓得后退了一步。  
  玛露慢慢站起来,难以置信,搂着他的脸颊,鬓角咧开。监视着她父亲的那个男人,枪套低挎着,看上去能做出任何恐怖的事。但是,她父亲没有恐吓要用枪。似乎并没有意识到要用枪。玛露力争维护那男人的尊严,不管她父亲的那种教训。她父亲并不后悔他的行为;劳拉活该受那一巴掌,她父亲想要维持他的粗暴的行为。因为她,搅得全家都不愉快!他不能面对与他同等地位的人,因本地各社团都在传她的耸人听闻的故事。想到这些实在不堪忍受。

 Before the sound of the slap died, Cal Barton had erupted out of his chair with smooth grace and Nora's father was lying flat on his back on the floor. 
  'You son of a-' Cal bit off the rest. He stood over the older man, his big fists closed and waiting at his sides, looking every bit as dangerous as the desperado Cynthia had first mistaken him for. 'You touch her again and I'll break your damned neck!' He didn't even raise his voice, but the threat in it was blatant. His posture alone was intimidating. Added to the cold menace of his pale eyes and the authority with which he spoke, even Summerville took a step back.
  Marlowe sat up slowly, incredulous, holding his cheek where his muttonchop sideburns stuck out. The man standing over him looked capable of any sort of violence with that low-slung gun belt. But he wasn't threatening to use the gun. He seemed not to be aware of it. Marlowe struggled with a niggling respect for the man, despite his sore jaw. Not that he regretted his action; Nora had deserved that blow, he thought with remaining outrage at her scandalous behavior. The whole family would be disgraced because of her! He would never be able to face his social equals, and lurid tales of her would be told at local clubs. The thought was insupportable!
