She checks the streets near the diner where she first saw her, wishing her money wish over and over, but the bag lady is nowhere to be seen. 

女服务生跑遍了第一次见到老女人的餐馆附近的街道,心里不停地想着“我要钱”“我要钱”。可是哪里都看不到那个无家可归的老女人。

Finally, she gives up and heads instead to a liquor store to use up her last couple of bills in the best way possible, passing a bank where, by chance, a robbery is taking place. 
最后她放弃了,转而走向一个卖酒的商店。她要用最好的方式花光自己身上最后一点钞票。她路过一家银行,恰好遇到有人抢银行。

The heads of the thieves snap aside so violently when they rush out of the bank door toward her that they stumble and drop what they’re carrying, spilling it out on the street. 
当劫匪从银行破门而出朝她过来的时候,他们的头扭得太猛以至于一个踉跄将他们拿的东西洒了满地。

There are sirens, the thieves are on the run, and the money’s there for the taking, piles of it. 
警报轰鸣,劫匪们抱头鼠窜。一摞摞的钱就在散地上任人自取。

She wouldn’t even have to waste a wish. 
她甚至不必用掉一个愿望。

Then she realizes that, on the contrary, she has just used up her last one. 
可下一瞬间她意识到,不,她刚刚用完了她的最后一个愿望。

Somewhere, the old bird is laughing again. 
那个狡猾的老家伙又在什么地方发笑了

If the waitress grabs up the stolen loot, she’ll be on everybody’s most-wanted list, but if she walks away the granting of her final wish will be recklessly wasted. 
如果女服务生拿起银行被盗的赃物,她会登上所有人最想通缉的名单。但是如果她直接走开,她就要眼睁睁浪费掉最后的愿望了。

She looks up and sees that the security cameras have snapped away from her and hang by their wires. 
她抬头看了看,发现所有吊在线缆上的监控摄像头都扭转方向避开了她。

A handful of the scattered bills would never be missed, but a handful is not what she wished for; if she pinched a little she might be in more trouble than if she took it all.

现在从散落的钞票里抓上一把完全没问题,可是拿到一把钞票并不是她想要的。如果她只拿一点点,说不定比拿走所有钞票带给她的麻烦更大。


未完待续...
