A few minutes later I was tripping up-stairs in the wake of a smart young maid whom Mayor Packard had addressed as Ellen. 

几分钟后,我随着一位机灵的年轻侍女上楼,帕卡德市长称她为艾伦。

I liked this girl at first sight and, as I followed her up first one flight, then another, to the room which had been chosen for me, the hurried glimpses I had of her bright and candid face suggested that in this especial member of the household I might hope to find a friend and helper in case friendship and help were needed in the blind task to which I stood committed. 

第一眼我就喜欢这个女孩,另外,当我随着她拾级而上,去往为我安排的房间时,匆忙瞥见她阳光端正的脸庞的那刻,暗示着我作为这个屋子里的特殊一员,也许我该找个朋友兼助手,以便在我执行这个毫无头绪的任务时需要朋友和帮助。

But I soon saw cause — or thought I did — to change this opinion. When she turned on me at the door of my room, a small one at the extreme end of the third floor, I had an opportunity of meeting her eyes. 

但是很快我就看到理由改变这个选择——或者是想法。当她带我到我房门口,三楼边上一个小间时,她转向我,我得以看到她的眼睛。

The interest in her look was not the simple one to be expected. In another person in other circumstances I should have characterized her glance as one of inquiry and wonder. 

她饶有趣味的表情不是普通人拥有的。如果是别人在其他情况下,我会以为她的眼神带着询问和怀疑。

But neither inquiry nor wonder described the present situation, and I put myself upon my guard.

但无论是询问或者怀疑都不能诠释当时的状况,我摆正了自己的位置(我开始警惕起来)

Seeing me look her way, she flushed, and, throwing wide the door, remarked in the pleasantest of tones:

她看我看向她,脸红着打开了门,用一种很愉快的口吻说道:

“This is your room. Mrs. Packard says that if it is not large enough or does not seem pleasant to you, she will find you another one to-morrow.”

“这是你的房间。帕卡德夫人说如果您觉得房间不够大或者不舒适,她明天会为您另外找一间。”

“It’s very pleasant and quite large enough,” I confidently replied, after a hasty look about me. “I could not be more comfortable.”

很舒适,也足够大。”我匆忙环视一下,很自信的回答,“再舒适不过了。”
