 I heard the leather of Baba’s seat creaking as he shifted on it. I closed my eyes, pressed my ear even harder against the door, wanting to hear, not wanting to hear. “Sometimes I look out this window and I see him playing on the street with the neighborhood boys.

我听到爸爸的皮椅在他移动的时候嘎吱作响的声音。我闭上眼睛,把我的耳朵更紧地贴着门,想要听,又不想听。“有时候我从窗户往外看,我可以看到他和一些邻居的孩子在街上玩。

I see how they push him around, take his toys from him, give him a shove here, a whack there. And, you know, he never fights back. Never. He just... drops his head and...”

我看到他们是如何推搡他,抢他的玩具,在这儿推他一下,在那儿打他一下。你知道,他从来不会反击。从不。他只是……低下头,然后……”

So hes not violent, Rahim Khan said.

“所以他并不暴力”拉辛汗说。

That’s not what I mean, Rahim, and you know it,” Baba shot back. “There is something missing in that boy.”

“但我的意思并不是这样,拉辛,你知道的”爸爸回复道。“这孩子身上缺少了些东西。”

Yes, a mean streak.

 “是的,卑劣的一面。”

Self-defense has nothing to do with meanness. You know what always happens when the neighborhood boys tease him? Hassan steps in and fends them off. I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

“自卫和卑劣无关。你知道,当邻居的孩子欺负他的时候会发生什么吗?哈桑会站出来,把他们挡回去。这都是我亲眼看到的。

And when they come home, I say to him, ‘How did Hassan get that scrape on his face?’ And he says, ‘He fell down.’ I’m telling you, Rahim, there is something missing in that boy.”

当他们回家的时候,我问他,“哈桑脸上的伤是怎么弄的?”他说,“他自己摔倒了。”我告诉你,这孩子身上缺少了些东西。”

You just need to let him find his way,” Rahim Khan said.

“你只需让他找到他自己的路”拉辛汗说。

And where is he headed?” Baba said. “A boy who won’t stand up for himself becomes a man who can’t stand up to anything.”

“他以后要朝哪里去呢?”爸爸说。“一个不能保护自己的男孩在长大以后什么都保护不了。”

As usual youre oversimplifying.

“像往常一样,你把问题过于简化了。”

I dont think so.

“我不这么认为。”

Youre angry because youre afraid hell never take over the business for you.

“你生气是因为你害怕他以后不会继接管你的产业。”

Now who’s oversimplifying?” Baba said. “Look, I know there’s a fondness between you and him and I’m happy about that.

“现在是谁在过分简化问题?”爸爸说。“看,我知道你们互相喜欢,对此我也很高兴。

 Envious, but happy. I mean that. He needs someone who...understands him, because God knows I don’t. But something about Amir troubles me in a way that I can’t express. It’s like...” I could see him searching, reaching for the right words.

我的意思是,有些嫉妒,但是高兴。他需要个人……理解他,因为神知道我理解不了他。但是总有些关于阿米尔的事在困扰我,而我又说不出来。那就像……”我可以想象到他在搜索、寻找那个合适的词。

He lowered his voice, but I heard him anyway. “If I hadn’t seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d never believe he’s my son.”

他放低了声音,但是我还是能听得到。“如果不是我亲眼看着医生把她从我老婆的肚子里拉出来,我怎么也不会相信他是我的儿子。”

THE NEXT MORNING, as he was preparing my breakfast, Hassan asked if something was bothering me. I snapped at him, told him to mind his own business.

第二天早上,在哈桑给我准备早餐的时候,他问我是不是有什么烦心事。我恶狠狠地跟他说,告诉他让他不要多管闲事。

Rahim Khan had been wrong about the mean streak thing.

关于卑劣倾向的事,拉辛汗说错了。

第三章完

怕明天纠结自己作业爬不上来做这个……那么,晚上先灭了。
