Thibault had Zeus stay where he was, kept enough distance so the deputy wouldn't hear him, and the rest of the plan had come together spontaneously after that. He knew that direct  confrontation was out—the deputy would have claimed he was collecting evidence, and the strength of his word against a stranger's would have been unassailable. Anything physical was out of the question, mostly because it would have caused more problems than it was worth, though he would have loved to go toe-to-toe with the guy. Luckily—or unluckily, he supposed, depending on the perspective—the girl had appeared, the deputy had panicked, and Thibault had seen where the camera had landed. Once the deputy and the girl headed back toward her friends, Thibault retrieved the camera. He could have simply left at that point, but the guy needed to be taught a lesson. Not a big lesson, just a lesson that would keep the girls' honor intact, allow Thibault to be on his way, and ruin the deputy's day. Which was why he'd doubled back to flatten the deputy's tires.

蒂博让宙斯呆在原地,然后和那警监保持一定距离以免被他听到声音,剩下的计划在那之后变自然而然的发生了。他知道直接的对峙是不好的,——那警监会说自己是在搜集证据,而警监对陌生人的话是不容置疑的。所有的物品都毫无质疑。而且是因为这些物品会引起很多麻烦,虽然他很喜欢一步一步跟着那家伙。他想幸运还是不幸运,是看情况的。那女孩出现了,警监有些紧张,而且蒂博看到那个摄像机的位置了。当那警监和那女孩儿回到她朋友那里的时候,蒂博就拿走了摄像机。他本可以就从那里离开,但是那家伙需要被教训一顿。并不是教训一大顿,只是让那些女孩的自尊不受伤害。allow Thibault to be on his way (此处无能)这小教训可以毁了警监这一天,这也是为什么蒂博两次回来把警监的车胎扎爆。

"Oh, that reminds me," Thibault volunteered. "I found your camera in the woods."

“哦,我想起来了”蒂博提出来“我在树丛里找到了你们的摄像机。”

"It's not mine. Lori or Jen—did either of you lose a camera?" Both of them shook their heads.

“这不是我的,是劳瑞的还是珍的?”她们两个人都摇了摇头。

"Keep it anyway," Thibault said, putting it on the seat, "and thanks for the ride. I've already got one."

“你们留着吧,”蒂博说着把摄像机放在了座位上,“谢谢你们让我搭车。我已经有一个了。”

"You sure? It's probably expensive."

“你确定么?这个应该很贵吧。”

"Positive."

“当然。”

"Thanks."

“谢谢。”
