Clayton pushed through the underbrush, ducking beneath the occasional branch on the way back to his cruiser, thinking he'd handled that well. Very well indeed. Amy had actually smiled at him, and as he'd turned away, he'd toyed with the idea of doubling back and asking her for her phone number. No, he decided, it was probably better to simply leave good enough alone. More than likely they'd go back and tell their friends that even though they'd been caught by the sheriff, nothing had happened to them. Word would get around that the deputies around here were cod. Still, as he wove through the woods, he hoped the pictures came out. They would make a nice addition to his little collection.

 

克莱顿穿过灌木丛,在回去的路上躲避来巡查的巡逻车,他觉得自己可以把这事处理得很好,确实是非常好。(@h0panpan悉心改正:在回到他的巡逻车的路上一边低头躲避偶尔伸到路上的树枝,一边想他已经把这件事处理得很好。)艾米实际上在他转身的时候都冲他微笑了,他幻想了一下要不要再回去向她要个电话号码。他决定不去了,也许就这样简单的离开是最好的。很有可能他们会回去告诉他们的朋友们说,虽然他们被警察抓住了,但是什么都没有发生。这里警察很蠢的谣言也许会传开。但他还是穿过小树林离开了,他希望相机里的照片可以洗出来。这些照片会成为他小收藏品之一。

 

All in all, it had been an excellent day. He was about to go back for the camera when he heard whirling. He followed the sound toward the logging road and saw a stranger with a dog, walking slowly up the road, looking like some kind of hippie from the sixties.

 

总之,这是绝妙的一天。他刚要去收回摄像机时听到了口哨声。他冲着声音向集材公路那边望去,看到一个陌生人和一条狗正向路的方向慢慢走去,(那样子)就像是六十年代的嬉皮。

 

The stranger wasn't with the girls. Clayton was sure of it. The guy was too old to be a college student* for one thing; he had to be late twenties, at least. His long hair reminded Clayton of a rat's nest, and on the stranger's back, Clayton could see the outlines of a sleeping bag poking out from beneath a backpack. This was no day-tripper on the way to the beach; this guy had the appearance of someone who'd been hiking, maybe even camping out. No telling how long he'd been here or what he'd seen.

 

克莱顿确定那陌生人不是和那些女孩一伙的。那个人有些老,不像是大学生,他至少是二十大几。他的长发让克莱顿想起了老鼠窝,而且那陌生人的后背上,克莱顿看到睡袋从下面的背包耷拉了出来。这不是一个要去那个沙滩的一日游旅行者,这人的装扮像是一个徒步旅行的人,也许是宿营的。但是克莱顿看不出他在这多长时间了、也不知道他都看到些什么。
