PART I

"I see . . .' said the vampire thoughtfully, and slowly he walked across the room towards the window.

“我明白了……“这位吸血鬼若有所思地说道,缓缓的穿过整个房间走向窗户。

For a long time he stood there against the dim light from Divisadero Street and the passing beams of traffic.

他对着来自迪维萨德罗街道和川流不息的车辆的微光,在窗前站了很久。

The boy could see the furnishings of the room more clearly now, the round oak table, the chairs.

 这个男孩能把这个房间的家具看得更加清楚,圆形的橡木桌子,还有那些椅子。

A wash basin hung on one wall with a mirror.

一面墙上挂着一个洗脸盆和一面镜子。

He set his brief case on the table and waited.

他把他的公文包放在桌上,等待着这位吸血鬼开口。

"But how much tape do you have with you?" asked the vampire, turning now so the boy could see his profile. "Enough for the story of a life?"

“不过,你带了多少盘磁带?“这位吸血鬼一边问道,一边侧过身,此时这个男孩能看见他的侧脸。”足够录下一生的故事吗?“

"Sure, if it's a good life. Sometimes I interview as many as three or four people a night if I'm lucky. But it has to be a good story. That's only fair, isn't it?"

“当然,如果这是一个精彩的人生的话。如果我足够幸运的话,有时候一晚上能采访三到四个人。但是它必须是一个精彩的故事。这才算公平,不是吗?“

"Admirably fair," the vampire answered. "I would like to tell you the story of my life, then. I would like to do that very much."

“非常公平。“这位吸血鬼说道,”接下来,我愿意告诉你我这一生的故事。这是我的荣幸。“

"Great," said the boy. And quickly he removed the small tape recorder from his brief case, making a check of the cassette and the batteries. "I'm really anxious to hear why you believe this, why you . . ."

“太好了!“男孩说。他迅速从公文包里拿出磁带录音机,检查了一下盒式磁带和电池。”我很想知道你为什么相信这个,你为什么……“

"No," said the vampire abruptly. "We can't begin that way. Is your equipment ready?"

“不。”这位吸血鬼打断了他的话,“我们不能以这样的方式开始。你的设备都准备好了吗?”

"Yes," said the boy.

“准备好了。”男孩说。

"Then sit down. I'm going to turn on the overhead light."

“那么请坐。我要打开顶灯了。”

"But I thought vampires didn't like light," said the boy. "If you think the dark adds to the atmosphere."

“但是我以为吸血鬼都不喜欢灯光。”男孩说,“如果你觉得黑暗更有气氛。“

But then he stopped.

 但是紧接着他顿住了。

 The vampire was watching him with his back to the window.

吸血鬼正背靠着窗户望着他。
