She wondered what the empty flat would be like -if that was where the corridor led.

卡萝琳在想那个空房间会是什么样子——如果通道出口是那里的话。

Coraline walked down the corridor uneasily. There was something very familiar about it.
卡萝琳不安地朝前走着,忽然有种似曾相识的感觉。

The carpet beneath her feet was the same carpet they had in their flat. The wallpaper was the same wallpaper they had. The picture hanging in the hall was the same that they had hanging in their hallway at home.
脚下的地毯和家里的地毯一模一样,墙纸和家里的墙纸也一模一样,就连挂在客厅里的画也和家里的一模一样!

She knew where she was: she was in her own home. She hadn't left.
卡萝琳明白她在哪了:这就是自己的家啊!她根本就没有离开。

She shook her head, confused.
卡萝琳摇了摇头,茫然了。

She stared at the picture hanging on the wall: no, it wasn't exactly the same. The picture they had in their own hallway showed a boy in old-fashioned clothes staring at some bubbles. But now the expression on his face was different - he was looking at the bubbles as if he was planning to do something very nasty indeed to them. And there was something peculiar about his eyes.
卡萝琳看着墙上的画:不,并非完全一样。家里的那幅画着一个穿着老式服装的小男孩凝视泡泡的模样,但是面前这幅画男孩脸上的表情不一样——他看泡泡的模样好像真要对它们做什么坏事一样。而且总觉得他的眼睛哪里怪怪的。

Coraline stared at his eyes, trying to work out what exactly was different.
卡萝琳盯着他的眼睛,想找出到底是哪里不一样。

She almost had it when somebody said, 'Coraline?'
当她差点弄明白时忽然听到有人喊道:“卡萝琳?”

It sounded like her mother. Coraline went into the kitchen, where the voice had come from. A woman stood in the kitchen with her back to Coraline. She looked a little like Coraline's mother. Only ...
听起来好像是妈妈。卡萝琳跑进厨房——声音的源头。一个女人站在厨房里,背对着卡萝琳。她看上去有点像卡萝琳的妈妈,除了……

Only her skin was white as paper.
除了她的皮肤白如纸。
Only she was taller and thinner.
除了她更高更瘦。

Only her fingers were too long, and they never stopped moving, and her dark-red fingernails were curved and sharp.
除了她的手指太过修长,而且一刻也没停过。她暗红色的指甲弯曲而尖锐。

'Coraline?' the woman said. 'Is that you?'
“卡萝琳?”那个女人说道,“是你吗?”

And then she turned round. Her eyes were big black buttons.
当她随即转过身,她的眼睛竟然是黑色的大纽扣!

'Lunchtime, Coraline,' said the woman.
“午餐时间,卡萝琳。”那个女人说。

'Who are you?' asked Coraline.
“你是谁?”卡萝琳问。

'I'm your other mother,' said the woman. 'Go and tell your other father that lunch is ready.' She opened the door of the oven. Suddenly Coraline realised how hungry she was. It smelled wonderful. 'Well, go on.'

“我是你另一个妈妈。”那个女人说,“去叫你另一个爸爸,就说午饭好了。“她把烤箱门打开,瞬间卡萝琳就意识到自己有多饿了,那闻起来别提有多香了!”好了,快去吧!“

未完待续……
