Roald Dahl--- THE BFG
Sophie stared（凝视，注视）hard across the misty moonlit(月光照耀的) street. The Giant (if that was what he was)was wearing a long black cloak.（斗篷）
In one hand he was holding what looked like a VERY LONG; THIN TRUMPET.
In the other hand, he held a large suitcase.
The Giant had stopped now right in front of Mr and Mrs Goochey's house. The Goocheys had a greengrocers shop（蔬菜水果店） in the middle of the High Street, and the family lived above the shop. The two Goochey children slept in the upstairs front room, Sophie knew that.
The Giant was peering through the window into the room where Michael and Jane
Goochey were sleeping. From across the street, Sophie watched and held her breath.（屏住了呼吸）
She saw the Giant step back a pace and put the suitcase down on the pavement. （人行道）
He bent over（弯着腰） and opened the suitcase. He took something out of it.
It looked like a glass jar（玻璃瓶子）, one of those square ones with a screw top. （顶端有螺旋盖）He unscrewed the top of the jar and poured（倾倒） what was in it into the end of the long trumpet thing.
Sophie watched, trembling.（发抖）
She saw the Giant straighten up again and she saw him poke（捅，探） the trumpet in through the open upstairs window of the room where the Goochey children were sleeping. She saw the Giant take a deep breath and whoof,(拟声词，吹起的声音) he blew through the trumpet.
No noise came out, but it was obvious to（清楚的） Sophie that whatever had been in the jar had now been blown through the trumpet into the Goochey children's bedroom.
What could it be?
As the Giant withdrew the trumpet from the window and bent down to pick up the suitcase he happened to turn his head and glance across（扫视） the street.
In the moonlight, Sophie caught a glimpse of（一瞥的） an enormous long pale wrinkly（布满皱纹的） face with the most enormous ears. The nose was as sharp as a knife, and above the nose there were two bright flashing eyes, and the eyes were staring（凝视） straight at Sophie. There was a fierce（凶猛的） and devilish（邪恶的） look about them. Sophie gave a yelp（惊叫） and pulled back（拉回） from the window.
She flew across the dormitory and jumped into her bed and hid under the blanket.
And there she crouched（蜷缩）, still as a mouse, and tingling all over.（吓的直打寒颤）
Under the blanket, Sophie waited.
For the second time that night her blood froze to ice and she wanted to scream, but no sound came out.
There at the window, with the curtains pushed aside, was the enormous long pale wrinkly face of the Giant Person, staring in. The flashing black eyes
were fixed on （固定在）Sophie's bed.
The next moment, a huge hand with pale fingers came snaking in（探入） through the window.
This was followed by an arm, an arm as thick as a tree-trunk（树干）, and the arm, the hand, the fingers were reaching out（探出手去） across the room toward Sophie's bed.
This time Sophie really did scream, but only for a second because very quickly the huge hand clamped down over（夹住，抓住） her blanket and the scream was smothered by（被无声化） the bedclothes.
Sophie, crouching underneath the blanket, felt strong fingers grasping hold（牢牢抓着） of her, and then she was lifted up from her bed, blanket and all, and whisked out（飞出） of the window.
If you can think of anything more terrifying than that happening to you in the middle of the night, then let's hear about it.
The awful thing was that Sophie knew exactly what was going on although she couldn't see it happening. She knew that a Monster (or Giant) with an enormous long pale wrinkly face and dangerous eyes had plucked（拽） her from her bed in the middle of the witching hour and was now carrying her out through the window smothered in（被覆盖） a blanket.
What actually happened next was this. When the Giant had got Sophie outside, he
Arranged（整理） the blanket so that he could grasp（看清） all the four corners of it at once in one of his huge hands, with Sophie imprisoned（禁锢） inside.
In the other hand he seized（抓着） the suitcase and the long trumpet thing and off he ran.
Sophie, by squirming around（蠕动） inside the blanket,managed to push the top of her head out through a little gap just below the Giant's hand.
She stared around her.
Each stride he took was as long as a tennis court.
Out of the village he ran, and soon they were racing across the moonlit fields. The
hedges（树篱） dividing（分开v.） the fields were no problem to the Giant.
He simply strode over（跨过） them. A wide river appeared in his path. He crossed it in one flying stride. Sophie crouched in the blanket, peering out. She was being bumped against the Giant's leg like a sack of potatoes（一麻袋的土豆）. Over the fields and hedges and rivers they went, and after a while a frightening thought came into Sophie's head.
The Giant is running fast, she told herself, because he is hungry and he wants to get home as quickly as possible, and then he'll have me for breakfast.
