Hassan never talked about his mother, as if she’d never existed. I always wondered if he dreamed about her, about what she looked like, where she was. I wondered if he longed to meet her.  

哈桑从没提起过他的母亲,好像她从未存在过一样。我总是想他会不会在梦见她,会不会梦见她长什么样子,在哪里。我还想他会不会渴望见到她。

 

Did he ache for her, the way I ached for the mother I had never met?

他会为她心疼吗,就好像我为自己从未见过的妈妈难过一样?

 

One day, we were walking from my father’s house to Cinema Zainab for a new Iranian movie, taking the shortcut through the military barracks near Istiqlal Middle School--Baba had forbidden us to take that shortcut, but he was inPakistanwith Rahim Khan at the time.

有一天,为了看一部新的伊朗电影,我们从我爸爸的家里朝扎那博电影院走去。我们抄了近路,穿过中学旁的军营区——爸爸禁止我们走那条近路,但当时他和拉辛汗在巴基斯坦。

 

We hopped the fence that surrounded the barracks, skipped over a little creek, and broke into the open dirt field where old, abandoned tanks collected dust.

我们跨过围绕着军营的栅栏,跳过一条小溪,闯进开阔的泥地,那儿停着积满灰尘的废旧坦克。

 

A group of soldiers huddled in the shade of one of those tanks, smoking cigarettes and playing cards. One of them saw us, elbowed the guy next to him, and called Hassan.

一群士兵聚集在一辆坦克的影子下抽烟、玩扑克牌。其中有个士兵发现了我们,用手肘碰碰身边的家伙,对哈桑大叫。

 

Hey, you!” he said. “I know you.”

“喂,你!”他说,“我知道你。”

 

We had never seen him before. He was a squatly man with a shaved head and black stubble on his face. The way he grinned at us, leered, scared me. “Just keep walking,” I muttered to Hassan.

我们之前从未见过他。他蹲在地上,剃了个光头,脸上还有黑黑的胡茬。他色眯眯地对我们咧嘴而笑,这吓到了我。继续走!”我低声对哈桑说。

 

You! The Hazara! Look at me when I’m talking to you!” the soldier barked. He handed his cigarette to the guy next to him, made a circle with the thumb and index finger of one hand. Poked the middle finger of his other hand through the circle. Poked it in and out. In and out.

!哈扎拉小子!看着我,我在跟你说话呐!”那士兵吼道。他把香烟递给旁边的那个家伙,用一只手的拇指和食指围成圆圈,用另一只手的中指戳进那个圈圈,不断戳进戳出。(这……)

 

“I knew your mother, did you know that? I knew her real good. I took her from behind by that creek over there.”

“我认识你的妈妈,你知道吗?我跟她很熟。

The soldiers laughed. One of them made a squealing sound. I told Hassan to keep walking, keep walking.

那群士兵大笑。其中一个还尖叫了一声。我告诉哈桑继续走,继续走。

 

第二章,未完待续
