高干家庭传奇35:儿媳挑拨丈夫终于失去理智

The ones who were most indignant were the eldest son 1_____ his wife. When she saw that the other two sons were wavering, the eldest son’s wife said 2_____ her husband: Of course they don’t care. They’ve got other jobs. That woman can’t take those 3____ from them. But what 4____ you got? You are only the manager 5____ the old man’s estate -- and it will all go 6______ her and her daughter! What will become of poor me 7______ our poor children? We have nothing 8_____ fall back on. Perhaps we should all die! Perhaps that 9______ what your father really wants! Perhaps I should kill 10_______ to make them all happy!”

现在,就在老二、老三准备妥协的时候,对夏医生要娶杨玉芳为妻的计划感到最愤怒、反对最坚决的是老大和老大的妻子。尤其是夏医生的大儿媳妇,当她看到其他两兄弟已经动摇,不再反对这门婚事时,就更加怒火中烧。她言辞激烈哭喊着对自己的丈夫说:

“他们两家当然不在乎。他们两弟兄各有各的本事,都有各自的事业,老二行医,老三教书,一个守着药店,一个守着学校。杨家女人不可能从他们手里抢走什么。可是你有什么呀?说起来你是他的大儿子,实际上只是一个听人使唤的管家,你所管理的田地农庄,全都是老头子的财产。那个女人嫁过来,这个家就会由她来当,所有的财产全都归属那个女人和她的女儿了!咱们就等着受穷受苦吧!我好可怜哪!我怎么嫁了你这么个窝囊废啊!我的命好苦啊!我的可怜的孩子们、孙子们,你们的命好苦啊!我们将来没有财产也没有依靠。我们什么都没有,还不如干脆都死了算了!你的阿玛一点也不为我们着想,也许就是想要把我们大家都逼死吧!你们都不要逼我,让我先自己杀了自己好了。只要我一死,眼不见心不烦,你阿玛也就称心如意了,你们大家也都称心如意了!让我去死吧!让我去死吧!”

All this 11____ accompanied by wailing and floods 12____ tears. Her husband replied 13_____ an agitated manner:Just give me time till tomorrow.”

老大媳妇一边哭一边嚎,情绪激动,尖着嗓门,眼泪淌成了河。夏医生的大儿子又心疼又着急,心里的怨恨和怒火也一股一股地往上窜。他咬牙切齿地回答说:“你别着急,再给我一天时间,等到明天,就明天,我一定让他老人家回心转意。”

When Dr. Xia woke the next morning, he found his entire family, 14____ the only exception of De-gui, fifteen people 15____ all, kneeling outside his bedroom. The moment he appeared, his eldest 16_____ shouted Kowtow!” and they all prostrated themselves in unison. Then, 17____ a voice quaking with emotion, the son declaimed: “Father, your children 18_____ your entire family will stay here 19____ kowtow to you till our deaths unless you start to think 20_____ us, your family ---- and, above all, your elderly self.”

第二天一早醒来,夏医生打开房门,眼前的情景把他吓了一跳:门前黑压压一大片,大儿子领着全家大小三代人,除了老二德贵不在场,其他的儿子、孙子、重孙子,总共15口人,在他的卧室门外,齐刷刷地跪在地上。夏医生一现身,大儿子高喊一声:“叩头!”

跪在那里的15个人一齐动作,应声磕头。

大儿子响亮地说:“阿玛,您的儿子、您的孙子、您的重孙子,您的全家血脉,跪在这里给您老人家磕头!求您为我们想一想,求您为您的子孙后代想一想,而最重要的,求您老人家为您自己着想一下!您如果不答应我们的要求,我们就跪在这里,永远不起来,一直到死!”

Dr. Xia was so angry 21_____ his whole body shook. He asked his children to stand 22____, but before anyone could move, the eldest 23_____ spoke again:No, Father, we won’t ---- not unless you call off 24_____ wedding!”

夏医生气得浑身乱颤,提起手杖跺跺地,半天说不出话来。好不容易镇静下来一点,就沉重地叹了一口气,恳切地请大家起来说话,有话好商量。但是,正当有些人犹犹豫豫地想站起来时,大儿子又说话了:“不行,我们谁也不起来!除非您老人家答应我们的请求,取消跟那个女人的婚礼,否则我们绝不起来!”

Dr. Xia tried to reason 25______ him, but the son continued 26_____ hector him 27____ a quivering voice.

夏医生试图跟他讲道理,但是大儿子不依不饶,一个劲儿地逼他表态,而且情绪激动,声音发抖。

Finally Dr Xia said: I know what is 28____ your minds. I won’t be 29____ this world much longer. If you are worried 30_____ how your future stepmother will behave, I have not the slightest doubt that 31____ will treat you all very well. I know 32____ she is a good person. Surely you can see 33____ there is no other reassurance I can give you except her character…….

最后,夏医生长叹一声,对大家说:“我知道你们心里在想什么,我知道你们的心思,也知道你们在担心什么。我在这个世界上已经来日无多,活不了多久了。如果你们担心你们的继母将来会对你们有不利的行为,那你们就错了。你们根本不了解她。但是我知道她是一个什么样的人。她很善良,是个好女人,我毫不怀疑她的人品。毫无疑问,她会善待你们,这一点我从不怀疑。请你们相信我,相信我的眼光,我向你们保证,你们的继母有着高贵的品行……”
