杀手与律师

A Killer and Lawyer

 

作者:夏理雾棋

 

    当我走进客厅 ,迎面吹来的风,就已经让我明白了这儿有些不同寻常,但我还没来得及做下一个动作,客厅的灯就突然打开了 一个大约三十来岁的陌生男人赫然坐在我会客的沙发上。 我有些惊讶,使我惊讶的原因除了那张没有血色、面无表情的脸之外,还有紧握在他右手的那把装有消音器的手枪。

When I stepped into the living room, the wind blowing on my face made me feel that something unusual happened. Before I could make another move, the light in the room was turned on An unwanted man in his 30s was sitting on my sofa for my guests. I was surprised. Beside his pale poker face, I was more surprised by the handgun with a muffle gripped in his right hand.

 

    我轻松地笑了笑说 “我记得我出门时关过窗的啊”

Easily I smiled: “I can remember that I closed the window before I left.”

 

    “别废话。”他的声音正如他的表情那样冰冷,“ 现在你坐到我对面的沙发上。”

“Stop talking nonsense.” His voice was as cold as his face: “Now you sit down on the sofa opposite me.”

 

    被枪指着的感觉的确不怎么舒服,我仔细打量这位不速之客,三七开的分头,一件灰色的夹克,已经洗到发白的牛仔裤——真是毫无趣味的打扮。他坐在我那白色的沙发上,这让我松了口 气。我缓缓地挪到他对面的黑色的沙发旁,看准了位置,坐了下去。

That’s true; it is not good to be pointed by a gun. I scanned the unwanted guest. With a 3/7 parted haircut, he was in a gray jacket and a pair of jeans which are washed out of its original color—so boring was his clothes, I thought. He was sitting in my white sofa, so I took a breath of relief and moved slowly to the black sofa across from him and found the spot to sit down.

 

    “我有必要作一下 自我介绍。 ”

“I should make a self-introduction.”

 

    “的确,很有必要。”

“Absolutely.”

 

    “ 我是一个杀手。” 他说到这里停顿了一下,盯着我的脸,但我平静的表情似乎让他有点疑惑,“这次我的目标是你。”

“I am a killer.” Here he paused and gazed at my face, but my calm facial expression seemed to confuse him a bit, “And this time my target is you.”

 

    我扯了扯自己的裤腿说道 “杀手,这个自我介绍真是特别。但如果你真的是一个杀手的话,我还能活着坐在这里和你聊天吗?”

“A killer,” I flattened my trousers and said: “This is a really special self-introduction. But if you really were a killer, how can I talk to you alive like this?”

 

    “那你认为坐在你面前是一个拿着玩具手枪的疯子吗?”

“Then who do you think I am, a lunatic with a toy handgun?”

 

    我忍不住笑出声来,虽然我知道这很不合时宜,但就是无法控制。

I couldn’t help laughing, though I knew it was not appropriate, but I just couldn’t control.

 

    “刚刚我跟你开玩笑的,说真的,我一点也不怀疑你所说的话,其实,我一看到你就猜到你可能是干这行的,只是我不理解,难道现在的杀手都有和要死的人聊天的习惯吗?”

“I was making fun of you, actually I had never doubted your words. In fact, I guessed that you might be in this occupation the first time I saw you. But there’s one thing I cannot understand, do the killers always talk to the dying man recently?”

 

    他无奈地耸了耸肩,用左手撸了下头,“事实上,这么拖泥带水的办事,我也是第一次。只是这次雇主,嗯??也就是要杀你的人,一定要让你在临死之前,听一段他的留言,他要让你感到死亡逼近的极度恐惧,所以我不得不让你活到现在。不过,你似乎很镇定啊?”

He shrugged and heckled his hair with his left hand: “In fact this is the first time for me to do my job so sloppily. But my client, the man who wants you dead, wants you to listen to his recording before your death. He wants you to feel the fear and horror as the death is coming, and that’s why I have to keep you alive. But you, on the contrary, seem to be very calm?”

 

    “在一周前,我或许会像大部分人一样,吓得面无血色。可是现在,对于死亡,我没有恐惧感。”

“A week ago, I could be scared pale like most people. But now I don’t fear death.”

 

    “为什么?”

“Why?”

 

    我注意到他的嘴角上翘了一定的弧度,可能作为杀手的他也同我一样,猜到今晚会是与众不同的。

I noticed that he formed a slight grin. Maybe as a killer, he guessed that something different will happen tonight as I did.

 

    “我得了绝症,医生说我最多还有两个月的时间,你说我还有什么好怕的?相反,与其像其他得绝症的人一样,毫无意义地度过最后的时光,然后再被死神带走,不如死得特别些。坦率地说,今天遇到你这样不同寻常的角色,我很高兴。”

“I was diagnosed with a deadly disease and the doctor said that I have at most two months to live. What do you think I should still be afraid of? In contrast, loitering the rest time like the other dying men till the angel of death come to me is no better than dying in a different way. Honestly speaking, I’m so happy to meet an unusual man like you.”

 

    一时间他没有说话,只是静静地看着我。

He didn’t speak for a while and stared at me silently.
