The mist hung like blindness around the house. She walked slowly to the steps up to her family's flat, and then stopped and looked around.
大雾蒙住了屋外的一切,卡萝琳小心翼翼地朝着家走着,时不时停下来看看四周。

In the mist, it was a ghost-world. In danger? thought Coraline to herself. It sounded exciting. It didn't sound like a bad thing. Not really.
雾里的世界像寂静岭一般。大祸临头?卡萝琳自顾自地思考着,听起来倒是挺刺激的,好像也没有那么糟糕吧,唬人的!

Coraline went back up the steps, her fist closed tightly around her new stone.
卡萝琳爬着楼梯,拳头紧紧握着她的新石头。

The next day the sun shone, and Coraline's mother took her into the nearest large town to buy clothes for school. They dropped her father off at the railway station. He was going into London for the day to see some people.
第二天太阳出来了,于是卡萝琳的妈妈带她去附近的大城市里买校服,顺便把爸爸带到地铁站,他要去伦敦会会一些人。

Coraline waved him goodbye.They went to the department store to buy the school clothes.
卡萝琳向爸爸招手道别,然后和妈妈去百货商店买校服。

Coraline saw some Day-glo green gloves she liked a lot. Her mother refused to get them for her, preferring instead to buy white socks, navy-blue school underpants, four grey blouses, and a dark grey skirt.
卡萝琳对那些荧光绿的手套爱不释手,但是妈妈却不肯买给她,而是买了几双白袜子、海军蓝的校服裤子,4件灰色上衣和一件灰黑色裙子。

'But Mum, everybody at school's got grey blouses and everything. Nobody's got green gloves. I could be the only one.'
”妈妈,同学们都有灰色上衣和这些东西,没有人有绿色的手套,我有了就是独一无二的!“

Her mother ignored her; she was talking to the shop assistant. They were talking about which kind of pullover to get for Coraline, and were agreeing that the best thing to do would be to get one that was embarrassingly large and baggy, in the hope that one day she might grow into it.
妈妈正和导购员说话,无视了卡萝琳的要求。她们在讨论哪种套头衫给卡萝琳好,而且一致认同最好的就是买那种超大宽松的,就算哪天卡萝琳长大了也能穿得下。

Coraline wandered off, and looked at a display of Wellington boots shaped like frogs and ducks and rabbits.
卡萝琳到处瞎转悠,在一排形状像青蛙、鸭子和兔子的雨靴柜台前看了一会。

Then she wandered back.
然后又逛回来了。

'Coraline? Oh, there you are. Where on earth were you?'
”卡萝琳!天啊,你可算回来了,刚才跑哪去了?“

'I was kidnapped by aliens,' said Coraline. 'They came down from outer space with ray guns, but I fooled them by wearing a wig and laughing in a foreign accent, and I escaped.'
”刚才被外星人绑架了。“卡萝琳说道,”他们带着激光枪从外星球过来,但是我戴着假发对着他们怪笑,忽悠了他们,逃过一劫!“

'Yes, dear. Now, I think you could do with some more hairclips, don't you?'
”恩,亲爱的,现在你可以去挑发夹了,好吗?”

'No.'
“不好。”

'Well, let's say half a dozen, to be on the safe side,' said her mother.
“好吧,买6个,以防万一。”妈妈说。

Coraline didn't say anything.
卡萝琳一言不发。


In the car on the way back home, Coraline said, 'What's in the empty flat?'
在开车回家的路上,卡萝琳问道:“那个空房子里有什么?”

'I don't know. Nothing, I expect. It probably looks like our flat before we moved in. Empty rooms.'
“不知道。我想就是空着而已。大概就像我们搬进去之前那样,空的。

'Do you think you could get into it from our flat?'
“那你可以从家里穿过去吗?”

'Not unless you can walk through bricks, dear.'
“除非妈妈有穿墙而过的特异功能,亲爱的。”

'Oh.'
“哦”

They got home around lunchtime. The sun was shining, although the day was cold. Coraline's mother looked in the fridge, and found a sad little tomato and a piece of cheese with green stuff growing on it. There was only a crust in the bread bin.
她们在午餐时间到家。阳光刺眼,尽管天气很冷。卡萝琳的妈妈翻了翻冰箱,却只找到了一个小的可怜的番茄,一片上面长着绿毛的芝士,而面包箱里只剩下面包皮了。

'I'd better dash down to the shops and get some  fishfingersor something,' said her mother. 'Do you want to come?'

“我得赶紧去便利店买点鱼排或者别的吃的。”妈妈说道,“你想一起去吗?”

'No,' said Coraline.
“不想。”卡萝琳回答。

'Suit yourself,' said her mother, and left. Then she came back and got her purse and car keys and went out again.
“随便你吧。”妈妈说完就出门了。不一会儿急急忙忙进来,揣上钱包和车钥匙后又匆匆离去。
