Chapter 2

Augustus Waters drove horrifically. Whether stopping or starting, everything happened with a tremendous JOLT. I flew against the seat belt of his Toyota SUV each time he braked, and my neck snapped backward each time he hit the gas. I might have been nervous—what with sitting in the car of a strange boy on the way to his house, keenly aware that my crap lungs complicate efforts to fend off unwanted advances—but his driving was so astonishingly poor that I could think of nothing else.
奥古斯塔斯.沃特斯车开的很疯狂。无论是停车和起车的时候,都颠簸的很厉害。每当他刹车的时候,我都会撞在他丰田SUV的安全带上,每当他加油门的时候,我的脖子又会猛的撞向椅背。我应该多多少少感到紧张的,和一个陌生男孩同坐一辆驶向他家的车,敏锐地意识到我那千疮百孔的肺复杂的情况,也会避免一些意想不到的进展。但是他开车开的实在太疯狂,让我无暇顾及其他。
We’d gone perhaps a mile in jagged silence before Augustus said, “I failed the driving test three times.”
我们开了大概有一英里之后,奥古斯塔斯终于打破沉默的尬尴说道:“我考驾照挂了三次。”
“You don’t say.”
“你可快别说了。”
He laughed, nodding. “Well, I can’t feel pressure in old Prosty, and I can’t get the hang of driving left-footed. My doctors say most amputees can drive with no problem, but . . . yeah. Not me. Anyway, I go in for my fourth driving test, and it goes about like this is going.” A half mile in front of us, a light turned red. Augustus slammed on the brakes, tossing me into the triangular embrace of the seat belt. “Sorry. I swear to God I am trying to be gentle. Right, so anyway, at the end of the test, I totally thought I’d failed again, but the instructor was like, ‘Your driving is unpleasant, but it isn’t technically unsafe.’”
他笑着,点点头,“好吧,我在老Prosty里面感觉不到踏板压力,也无法掌握左脚开车的诀窍。医生说大部分截肢的人是可以正常开车的,但是。。。不是我。无论如何,我去考了第四次驾照,一切都顺其自然了。”半英里前面的地方,又红灯了。奥古斯塔斯又猛的刹车,冲力让我又狠狠的撞在安全带上。“对不起啊,我发誓我已经尽量开的平稳了。总之,考完之后,我又完全认为我考试挂了,但是考官却说:你车开的是让人很不舒服,但是从技术层面上来说,还是安全的。”
“I’m not sure I agree,” I said. “I suspect Cancer Perk.” Cancer Perks are the little things cancer kids get that regular kids don’t: basketballs signed by sports heroes, free passes on late homework, unearned driver’s licenses, etc.
“我不敢赞同。”我说道,“我怀疑你用了癌症福利哦。”癌症福利是指只限得了癌症的孩子享受的小福利,比如,可以拿到球星签名的篮球,可以避免因为晚交作业而挨骂,可以不用考试就拿到驾照等等。
“Yeah,” he said. The light turned green. I braced myself. Augustus slammed the gas. 
“当然。”他说。绿灯亮了。我环抱住自己。奥古斯塔斯开始猛的加油门。
