采访中……【电影里不像是男孩哦~~

The vampire smiled. "And the harpsichord; that was lovely.

吸血鬼微笑,“还有那架可爱的大键琴。

My sister used to play it.

过去我妹妹经常弹它。

 On summer evenings, she would sit at the keys with her back to the open French windows.

夏夜,她会背对着敞开的落地窗,坐在琴旁。

And I can still remember that thin, rapid music and the vision of the swamp rising beyond her, the moss-hung cypresses floating against the sky.

我至今仍然记得那轻轻的、欢快的音乐,还有那副景象——她身后上升的那片沼泽地,挂着青苔的丝柏树在空中摇摆着。

 And there were the sounds of the swamp, a chorus of creatures, the cry of the birds.

还有沼泽地里的声音,小生灵们在合唱,鸟儿在歌唱。

 I think we loved it. It made the rosewood furniture all the more precious, the music more delicate and desirable.

我想我们都深爱这一切。它使得所有的红木家具更加珍贵,也使得这音乐更加优美动听。

Even when the wisteria tore the shutters oft the attic windows and worked its tendrils right into the whitewashed brick in less than a year . . . .

甚至当紫藤穿透了阁楼窗户的遮板,不到一年就会把它的藤须伸进雪白的砖里……

 Yes, we loved it. All except my brother.

没错,我们爱这一切,只除了我的弟弟。

 I don't think I ever heard him complain of anything, but I knew how he felt.

我想我从来没有听见他抱怨过任何事,但是我知道他的感觉。

My father was dead then, and I was head of the family and I had to defend him constantly from my mother and sister.

那时,我们的父亲去世了。于是,我成了一家之主,而且我不得不时常在母亲和妹妹面前为他挡掉(那些事)。

They wanted to take him visiting, and to New Orleans for parties, but he hated these things.

她们想带他出去拜访(别人),去新奥尔良参加宴会,但是他痛恨这些事情。

 I think he stopped going altogether before he was twelve: Prayer was what mattered to him, prayer and his leather-bound lives of the saints.

我想他不到十二岁就不愿意和她们一起出门了:对他来说,更为重要的是祈祷和他那些圣徒们的清修生活。

"Finally I built him an oratory removed from the house, and he began to spend most of every day there and often the early evening.

最后我在房子外面给他建了一所小教堂,然后他开始每天呆在那里大半天,直到傍晚才回来。

 It was ironic, really.

这真的很讽刺。

He was so different from us, so different from everyone, and I was so regular!

他和我们是如此不同,和任何人都不一样,而我是如此普通!

 There was nothing extraordinary about me whatsoever." The vampire smiled.

不管什么都没有任何特殊的地方。“吸血鬼微笑。
