原创英汉双语小说:《涉足实业》{60}

 

‘It is your right to sue. I suggest you go to court instead of having a dinner here. You’d better hurry up otherwise the judges will be off duty. Now that you are rich why not drive a better car. Look at your car. It is as worn as rubbish. You don’t think it is humiliatory but we do.’ The guard’s mouth is like a knife.

‘What of it? A small guard, what a swollen-headed punk! You think you’re a VIP?’ Jack makes a mouth at the guard. The latter comes up to pull the car door. Jack drives the car away as soon as he can.

In the end they have to go to Lijing restaurant where he is not rare visitor. But he is still indignant and keeps the humiliation unforgettably in mind.

‘投诉去吧,现在就去,不用吃饭了,最好快点儿去,晚了,法官就下班了。既然有钱,干嘛不开部好车?看看这辆破车,该淘汰了。你不以为然,我们替你感到丢脸。’保安的嘴巴锋利如刀。

‘你有什么了不起,一个小保安而已,神气啥呀?以为自己是VIP吗?’杰克对着保安做个鬼脸儿,后者冲上来拉车门,杰克赶紧开车走掉了。

后来,他们只好去了丽晶酒店,在那里他是熟客。可是,他依然愤愤不平,对遭到的污辱耿耿于怀。

He doesn’t have mood to enjoy the food sitting there in a daze. His parents see through his depression and lose their appetite. Finally, they finish dinner hastily and go home early.

Jack sees a man standing at the gate of his house when he drives near the house. He wonders who the man is. He screeches near the gate and get out of the car. He goes up to the man before his parents and Cheryl goes out of the car.

‘Who are you? What can I do for you?’ He asks forwardly.

‘I guess you’re Mr. Jack. I am from Hunan. I am sure you know Molly. I have bought Molly’s house from her father. This is the agreement of purchasing. The property ownership certificate is here. I am sorry I want you to move away from the house within three days.’ The man doesn’t say holiday words and goes away without farewell.

他已经没有心情享受美食,坐在一边发呆。父母见他心情不好,也没了食欲。最后,他们草草吃完饭,早早地打道回府了。杰克开车快到家时,远远看见有人站在房门口。这人是谁呢?他想着,突然在门口停下车,迅速下车走过去,此时,他的父母和谢丽尔还在车里。

‘你是哪位?有事儿吗?’他主动打招呼。

‘你是杰克先生吧。我从湖南来,你肯定知道茉莉吧,我从她爸爸手里把这房子买下来了。这是购房协议,这是房地证。对不起,我要在三天内收回房子。’那人一句客套话也没有,说完话就不辞而别了。

 

Jack is in a daze forgetting where he is and what has happened.

‘Jack, what’s the matter?’ Cheryl’s voice wakes him.

‘Oh, nothing, a friend comes to tell me something. Let’s come in.’ He turns the key to open the gate mechanically and even forgets to call his parents.

‘Jack, you look so pale. Are you ill?’ Jack’s mother finds something different.

‘Yes, mom, I feel seedy only. It doesn’t matter. I will be fine after sleeping.’ He realizes it is a good pretext.

‘Do you have a fever?’

‘No, mom, don’t worry. I am only sleepy. I am going to sleep now. See you tomorrow, and you, dad, and you Cheryl.’

He goes away as quickly as he can as if a drowner-to-be happens to grasp a piece of straw. He needs time to make up a story letting his parents go home earlier without noticing his plight. He doesn’t want them to worry about his business.

杰克呆住了,想不起来自己在哪里,发生了什么事儿。

‘杰克,怎么啦?’谢丽尔的询问把他惊醒。

‘啊,没事儿,一个朋友来跟我说点儿事儿。咱们进屋吧。’他机械地扭转钥匙,打开房门,甚至忘记招呼父母进屋。

‘杰克,你脸色不好,是不是生病了?’老妈看出点儿事情。

‘是啊,妈妈,我有点儿难受,不过,没事儿,睡会儿觉就好了。’他觉得这是个借口。

‘看看发烧不?’

‘不,不发烧,放心,只是有点儿困,这就去睡了,明天见。爸,谢丽尔,明天见。’

他赶紧躲到自己睡觉的地方去,好像一个落水的人碰巧抓到一根稻草。他需要时间,编造一个理由,让父母察提前回乡,而且还察觉不到他的困境,他不想让他们操心。

Thank you for everyone’s reading my story. I am sorry I will have to stop uploading the story from tomorrow on because I will move to another city from Haikou. I don’t mention the city’s name which is on the road of Long March. It is a provincial capital and a famous summer resort. It will take me a week to settle down in the new place. I hope I can resume my story online from July 1, the party’s birthday though I am not a party member. Thank you once again, my friends.
