Clayton watched the stranger and his dog start up the logging road before veering onto a small trail that led into the woods. Once he vanished, Clayton went back to his original vantage point to search for the camera. He poked his arm into the bushes, kicked at the pine straw, and retraced his steps a couple of times to make sure he was in the right place. Eventually, he dropped to his knees, panic beginning to settle in. The camera belonged to the sheriffs department. He'd only borrowed it for these special outings, and there'd be a lot of questions from his dad if it turned out to be lost. Worse, discovered with a card full of nudie pictures. His dad was a stickler for protocol and responsibility.

克莱顿看着这个陌生人和他的狗开始离开然后转入通向小树林的小道上。他一消失,克莱顿就马上回到原来他的隐秘地点收回摄像机。他把胳膊伸到灌木丛里,踢开松叶,然后为了确认自己是在对的地方找摄像机,克莱顿又好几次循着自己的脚印来回找着。最终,他跪下来,他有些慌了神,因为那个摄像机是警局的。他只是因这些特殊出行借出了摄像机。如果摄像机丢了,他爸爸会问他很多很多问题。如果那张满是裸体照片的内存卡被谁发现了的话,那就会更糟糕了。他爸爸是个讲礼仪、责任的老传统。

 

By then, a few minutes had passed. In the distance, he heard the throaty roar of an engine fire up. He assumed the coeds were leaving; only briefly did he consider what they might be thinking when they noticed his cruiser was still there. He had other issues on his mind. The camera was gone.

几分钟过去了,他听到了发动机的声音。他估计是那些学生要离开了,他想当那帮学生注意到他的巡逻车还在那里的话,那帮学生会怎么想。他脑子里又蹦出了个想法,那摄像机不见了。

Not lost. Gone. And the damn thing sure as hell didn't walk off on its own. No way the girls had found it, either. Which meant Thigh-bolt had been playing him all along. Thigh-bolt. Playing. Him. Unbelievable. He knew the guy had been acting too slick, too

不是丢了,是不见了。而且这摄像机绝对不是自己长腿跑了。那些女孩们也不可能找到。这说明那个蒂博一直在玩儿他。蒂博,玩儿,他。不可能。他知道这家伙油头滑脑的。
