【美国故事】《降霜的早晨》 "Frosting Morning"

Ben was awakened by a gunshot.The sharp noise came through the thick stone walls of the house.It was cold in the bedroom and Ben Newman was shaking as he got out of bed.He put on his eyeglasses and went over to the window.The field was covered with white frost.Nothing moved out there in the deep quiet just before sunrise.Ben looked past the field to the thick woods.Two weeks ago he saw a deer among the trees.He held his breath with excitement;then the deer walked off.Ben wondered where the shot had come from.He thought perhaps he had dreamed he heard a gunshot.He looked out toward the frozen lake.Near the trees he saw a shining piece of metal.When it moved,Ben saw that it was a long gun.A minute later a man came out of the woods.He wore hunting clothes.Suddenly a bird flew upward.The man quickly put the gun to his shoulder and shot.Ben watched the bird,praying it had not been hurt.It flew near the ground and went into some tall grass.Safe,Ben thought.


本被枪声惊醒。刺耳的声音从房子厚厚的石墙里传出来。卧室里很冷,本纽曼下床时浑身发抖。他戴上眼镜,走到窗前。田野上结满了白霜。在日出前的寂静中什么也没有动。本从田野望向茂密的树林。两周前,他在树林里看见一只鹿。他兴奋地屏住呼吸,然后鹿走了。本想知道枪声是从哪里来的。他想也许他梦见听到枪声。他朝结冰的湖面望去。他在树边看到一块闪闪发光的金属。当它移动时,本看到它是一把长枪。一分钟后,一个人从树林里出来。他穿着猎装。突然一只鸟飞了起来。那人迅速把枪扛在肩上开枪。本看着那只鸟,祈祷它没有受伤。它飞近地面,掉进了一片高高的草地里。安全,本想。

The hunter did not move for a moment,then he began to follow the bird.Hate for the hunter burned inside of Ben."Hey!"he shouted.His voice cut through the stillness.The hunter stopped,but then continued to follow the bird.Ben shouted again,but this time the hunter did not stop and Ben started to move toward him.But Ben was in his night clothes and he did not go far.Instead he returned to the house.He got a metal shovel and hit the stone sides of the house so that the noise would warn the birds and animals of danger.The hunter looked back at Ben."No hunting!"Ben shouted,"No hunting on my land!"The man called back,"Where can I hunt?""South,"Ben said,"go South,"and pointed behind the man.The hunter started to walk away.Ben had just bought this house in the woods.He wanted to protect everything on his land.He thought that everyone would obey the signs:"No Hunting."Ben had just finished putting on his clothes when he heard another gunshot.This troubled him deeply.How could he stop this hunter?He walked toward the lake.He did not want to fight,but the man must go.He walked quietly.He wanted to surprise the hunter.But then,what would he do?He could not fight the hunter.


猎人一刻也没动,就开始跟着那只鸟。对本内心燃烧的猎人的仇恨。”嘿!“他喊道。他的声音穿过寂静。猎人停了下来,但接着继续跟着那只鸟。本又喊了一声,但这一次猎人没有停下来,本开始向他走去。但本穿着睡衣,走不远。相反,他回到家里。他拿了一把铁铲,砸在房子的石头边上,这样噪音就能警告鸟和动物有危险。猎人回头看着本不许打猎!”本喊道:“不许在我的土地上打猎!”那人回电话说:“我在哪里可以打猎?”“往南走,”本说,“往南走,”然后指着那人的身后。猎人开始走开了。本刚在树林里买了这所房子。他想保护他土地上的一切。他认为每个人都会遵守“禁止狩猎”的标志。本刚穿好衣服,就听到另一声枪响。这使他深感不安。他怎么能阻止这个猎人?他朝湖边走去。他不想打架,但那人必须走。他静静地走着。他想给猎人一个惊喜。但是,他会怎么做呢?他打不过猎人。


Suddenly he heard a bird's wings beating the dry grass.Ben moved quickly toward the sound.He saw a colored head...the head of a beautiful pheasant bird.The bird did not move until Ben came close.Then it tried to fly away,but one wing was broken.Ben lifted the bird and held it close against his body.The bird fought to escape,but soon lay quietly in Ben's arms.Its body was warm and heavy.Ben decided to take the bird home and fix its broken wings so that it could fly again.He was almost through the woods when he heard the hunter behind him."You just find that bird?"the hunter asked."Yes,"Ben answered."It is mine!"Ben was afraid and tried to answer,but his mouth was too dry to speak.But be wet his lips and said"No.""I shot him and I say he is mine!""But he is not dead yet,"Ben answered,"and besides,anything on my land belongs to me."The hunter reached out for the bird."I will have to kill it,"he said."That bird will soon die anyway."Ben got angry."Get out of here!"he said."I told you before and I am telling you again:get off my land!"The hunter looked down at the little man and smiled."Say,who are you?"Ben's voice shook with both fear and anger."I own this land.There are signs everywhere that say,"no hunting.""No need to get angry,mister,"the hunter said."Control yourself."


突然他听到一只鸟的翅膀拍打着干草。本很快就向那声音走去。他看见一个彩色的头。。。一只美丽的野鸡的头。这只鸟直到本走近才动。然后它试图飞走,但一只翅膀断了。本把鸟举起来,紧紧地靠在身上。那只鸟奋力逃跑,但很快就安静地躺在本的怀里。它的身体又热又重。本决定把这只鸟带回家,把它折断的翅膀修好,好让它能再飞一次。当他听到身后的猎人的声音时,他几乎已经穿过树林了。”你找到那只鸟了吗?”猎人问道“是的,”本回答这是我的!”本害怕,试图回答,但他的嘴太干,说不出话来。但要湿他的嘴唇说“不”“我开枪打了他,我说他是我的!”“但是他还没有死,”本回答,“而且,我的土地上的任何东西都属于我。”猎人伸手去抓那只鸟“我必须杀了它,”他说“反正那只鸟很快就会死的。”本生气了离开这里!”他说我以前告诉过你,现在又告诉你:离开我的土地!”猎人低头看着那个小个子,笑了。”喂,你是谁?”本的声音因恐惧和愤怒而颤抖。”我拥有这片土地。到处都有“禁止狩猎”的标志。“先生,不用生气,”猎人说控制自己。”
