And then he reached out over the length of the table.

他把手伸过桌子。他的手越过桌子伸了过来。

The boy recoiled, sweat running down the sides of his face.

男孩一惊,汗水顺着脸颊流下来。

The vampire clamped a hand on the boy's shoulder and said, "Believe me, I won't hurt you. I want this opportunity.

吸血鬼抓着男孩的肩膀,说:“相信我,我不会伤害你。我需要这个机会。

It's more important to me than you can realize now. I want you to begin."

这对我远比你现在想象的还要重要。我想现在就开始。“

 And he withdrew his hand and sat collected, waiting.

接着他松开手,静静地坐下,等待着。【其实我很想写坐等233

It took a moment for the boy to wipe his forehead and his lips with a handkerchief, to stammer that the microphone was in the machine, to press the button, to say that the machine was on.

男孩花了点时间用纸巾擦了擦前额和嘴唇,结结巴巴地说,扩音器已经放在录音机里了,按下按键,说录音机已经打开了。

"You weren't always a vampire, were you?" he began.

“你不是天生的吸血鬼,对吗?”他开始问道。

"No," answered the vampire."I was a twenty-five year-old man when I became a vampire, and the year was seventeen ninety-one."

“是的。”吸血鬼回答,“1791年,我变成了吸血鬼,那时我才二十五岁。“

The boy was startled by the preciseness of the date and he repeated it before he asked, "How did it come about?"

男孩有些惊讶于这个精确的年份,不由地重复了一遍,问道:“这是怎么发生的?“

"There's a simple answer to that. I don't believe I want to give simple answers," said the vampire. "I think I want to tell the real story. . . '

“答案很简单。但是我不想只是告诉你一个简单的答案。“吸血鬼说,”我想给你讲一个真实的故事……“

"Yes," the boy said quickly. He was folding his handkerchief over and over and wiping his lips now with it again.

“好的。“男孩有些急切地回答。他把纸巾叠了两叠,又用它擦了擦嘴唇。

"There was a tragedy . . ." the vampire started. "It was my younger brother . . . . He died."

“那是一个悲剧……“吸血鬼开始讲述,”我的弟弟……死了。“

And then he stopped, so that the boy cleared his throat and wiped at his face again before stuffing the handkerchief almost impatiently into his pocket.

然后他停了下来,男孩清了清嗓子,又擦了擦脸,有些急躁地把纸巾塞回口袋里。

"It's not painful, is it?" he asked timidly.

“你说这个并不痛苦,是吗?“他有些胆怯地问道。

"Does it seem so?" asked the vampire. "No." He shook his head. "It's simply that I've only told this story to one other person. And that was so long ago. No, it's not pa'

“这看起来不痛苦吗?“吸血鬼问,”是的。“他摇了摇头,”原因很简单,这个故事我只告诉过一个人,那也是很久以前的事情了。没错,讲这件事的确不会让我痛苦。“
