原创英汉双语小说:《创业之路——东山再起》{77}

 

‘You should admit what you did as a man, Jack. Don’t let the belle down and hurt her feeling. Now let me toast on behalf of her to respect you.’ She says quaffing another glass of wine.

‘Sam, as a bosom friend I supported your work. I’d like you to support me once.’ Jack intends to steer the talk to another direction.

‘What is it?’

‘I am sure you’re acquainted with the manager of the local industrial and commercial bank. Would you mind introducing me to him?’

‘No problem, I will deal with it next weekend, anything else?’ Sam has a well-thought-out plan.

‘Thank you beforehand, Sam. It will be my treat. Choose the best restaurant here. Don’t save my money.’

‘I congratulate you to become the general manager. Now you get a good salary and drive an Audi A six. You should feast us for that. But I mind you that the manager of the bank is a tippler. I don’t think you’re his rival. You’d better have solution beforehand otherwise you may offend him and overreach yourself.’

‘Thank you for your information. I must get along well with the manager. I will study him later.’

‘Jack is always far-sighted. I knew that when I was with him.’ Lily praises deliberately.

‘杰克,男子汉大丈夫,应该敢作敢当嘛,别让人家美女失望伤心。来吧,我替她敬你一杯。’她说完又干了一杯。

‘山姆,作为死党,我顶了你一次,你也应该帮我一个忙。’杰克想转移话题。

‘帮什么忙?’

‘你肯定跟本地的工商行行长很熟吧?能不能帮我引荐一下?’

‘没问题,下个周末帮你搞掂,还有什么需要我效劳?’山姆一副胸有成竹的样子。

‘谢谢你先,下次我做东,找个档次高些的地方,别替我省钱。’

‘恭喜你就任总经理,有高薪,还有奥迪A6开,你应该请我们一回。不过,我提醒你,那个行长是个贪杯之人,你根本不是他的对手,所以,你要先想好对策,别画虎不成反类犬哟。’

‘谢谢你的情报,我需要跟他搞好关系,下周我会有对策的。’

‘杰克总能高瞻远瞩,未雨绸缪,这一点我早就心服口服了。’莉莉居心叵测地夸奖杰克。

‘By the way, how old is the manager?’ Jack pretends not to hear Lily’s praise.

‘He is in his forties.’

‘I think it will be easy to keep him content. Men in such age have the same weakness.’

‘What is the weakness?’

‘You’ll know it after I keep him content. I am sorry I must keep it secret now. It is a commercial secret.’ Jack smiles cunningly.

‘对啦,那位行长多大岁数?’杰克装作没听见莉莉的赞扬。

‘四十多岁。’

‘那就好办多啦,这个岁数的男人有同样的弱点。’

‘什么弱点?’

‘等我搞定之后再告诉你。对不起,现在不能说,这是商业秘密。’杰克狡猾地笑笑。

 

The manager of the bank deserves the reputation of tippler he enjoys indeed. He orders two bottles of Maotai immediately when he is asked to order dishes. He is short and fat with a potbelly. His hands have ten deep dimples at the root of every finger. He seems to be outgoing and easy to get along.

‘Jack, this is Mr. Wan, the manager of the industrial and commercial bank. He is my bosom friend. You can call him Lao Wan. We are all friends and brothers. No need to stand on ceremony.’ Sam introduces the manager to Jack in an offhand way. He is apparently intimate with the manager, which makes Jack understand tacitly at once. He passes his business card to Mr. Wan with some words of civility. Then he introduces Lily to Mr. Wan.

‘Lao Wan, this is Miss Lily, the standing deputy general manager of our company.’

‘How do you do, Mr. Wan, I am glad to know you and hope you give us more helps and support from now on.’ Lily says reaching for handshake with Mr. Wan. The latter grasps her hand tightly.

银行行长确实是个名不虚传的酒徒,他点菜的顺序是先点两瓶茅台酒。这厮五短身材,脑满肠肥,十个胖胖的手指根部都生有深深的酒窝儿。一眼看上去,其性格似乎很随和。

‘杰克,这位是万先生,工商行行长,我的铁哥们儿,叫他老万就行,都是朋友加哥们儿嘛,不必客套。’山姆介绍行长的时候显得很随意,他们的关系很亲密。杰克马上心领神会,说了一些恭维的话,递上自己的名片。然后,他把莉莉介绍给万行长。

‘老万,这位是我们公司的常务副总,莉莉小姐。’

‘你好,万先生,非常高兴认识您,今后请多多关照。’莉莉说着伸手与行长握手,后者一把抓住莉莉的手,死死地握个不停。

‘It’s my pleasure to know you, Miss Lily. I know your company is powerful. It is I that should ask you to give us more helps and support. What can I do for you, Lily? Name it. I’ll do it for you without hesitation.’ The manager is raptured like a child.

‘You mustn’t be cheated by his honey-tongued words, Jack. His maxim is that he never makes a deal on table, especially when intoxicated.’ Sam whispers to Jack.

‘How do we know he is our meat?’ Jack asks in a low voice.

‘He has ordered two bottles of Maotai. It will indicate that you have kept him content if another two bottles of Maotai are ordered by him.’

‘Why is this so?’ Jack is very puzzled.

‘认识你我很荣幸,莉莉小姐。贵公司实力雄厚,在下要请你们多多关照才是。需要我做什么,你吩咐就行了,我马上就办,没二话。’行长兴高采烈的像个小孩子。

‘杰克,千万不要被他的甜言蜜语所蒙蔽。这家伙信奉的格言是:决不在酒桌上拍板任何事情,特别是喝高了的时候做的承诺,更是不算数。’山姆小声地告诫杰克。

‘我们怎么判断他被搞定了?’杰克小声问道。

‘他已经要了两瓶茅台,如果他再要两瓶,就说明他已经被搞定了。’

‘为什么呢?’杰克大惑不解。
