  Everything seemed so different, so unreal. There seemed no reason why people should go along the street, and houses pile up in the daylight. There seemed no reason why these things should occupy the space, instead of leaving it empty. His friends talked to him: he heard the sounds, and he answered. But why there should be the noise of speech he could not understand.

  一切都显得与往日不同,一切都显得虚无缥缈。人们似乎没有理由在大街上行走。房屋似乎没有理由在阳光下挤在一起,这些东西似乎没有理由占据空间,应该让世界就这么空着。朋友们跟他说话时,他听见声音,也能回答别人,可是他却不明白为什么说话时会发生那种嘈杂的声音。

  Hearing the clack of the gate she stood in suspense. It was a bright grey day. Paul came into the yard with his bicycle, which glittered as he walked. Usually he rang his bell and laughed towards the house. To-day he walked with shut lips and cold, cruel bearing, that had something of a slouch and a sneer in it. She knew him well by now, and could tell from that keen-looking, aloof young body of his what was happening inside him. There was a cold correctness in the way he put his bicycle in its place, that made her heart sink.

  大门咯吱一响,她不安地站在那儿。天气阴沉着。保罗推着锃亮的自行车进了院子。平时,他总是摁着车铃走向屋子。今天,他走进来时,却双唇紧闭,举上露出一股冷酷、懒散而嘲讽的神情。她现在已对他了如指掌,从他那敏锐、高傲的外表,就能推测出他的内心。他不经意地把车停在老地方,米丽亚姆看着不禁心里一沉。

  In appearance he remained the flower of the family, being well made, graceful, and full of life. His dark brown hair and fresh colouring, and his exquisite dark blue eyes shaded with long lashes, together with his generous manner and fiery temper, made him a favourite. But as he grew older his temper became uncertain. He flew into rages over nothing, seemed unbearably raw and irritable.

  论外表,他是家中的精华,身材匀称,风度优雅、充满活力,深棕色的头发、红润的脸色,敏锐的深蓝色的眼睛映衬着长长的睫毛,再加上慷慨大方的举止,暴躁的脾气,使他在家中倍受欢迎。但是,当他长大一点之后,他的脾气变的令人捉摸不定了。他无缘无故的大发脾气,粗暴无理,几乎让人不能忍受。
