You're the proverbial diamond in the rough," she'd said to him once, touching his nose lightly with the tip of her electrifying finger. But it was she who was the diamond, sparkling out of that muddy, grassless, dirty-brick setting. 

“你是一颗被埋没的钻石,”她曾经这样对他说过,用她那像通了电流一般手指轻轻地点了下他的鼻尖。但其实她才是一颗钻石,在泥泞的,寸草不生的,肮脏的土地上散发出芒。


"Jess-see!" 

“杰~斯!”


Jess shoved the pad and pencils under his mattress and lay down flat, his heart thumping against the quilt. 

杰斯猛地把画板和铅笔藏在他床垫下面,然后平躺下来,他的心在被子底下跳得飞快。


His mother was at the door. "You milk yet?" 

她妈妈站在门边。“你给牛挤奶了吗?”


He jumped off the bed. "Just going to." He dodged around her and out, grabbing the pail from beside the sink and the stool from beside the door, before she could ask him what he had been up to. 

他从床上跳下来。“这就去。”在她妈妈问他在干什么前,一把抓起水槽旁边的桶和门旁边的椅子,然后绕过她冲出了房间。


Lights were winking out from all three floors of the old Perkins place. It was nearly dark. Miss Bessie's bag was tight, and she was fidgeting with discomfort. 

老铂金斯家整个三层透出来的灯光都在向他眨着眼。天差不多黑了。贝丝小姐因为涨奶的不适而感到烦躁不安。


She should have been milked a couple of hours ago. He eased himself onto the stool and began to tug; the warm milk pinged into the pail. Down on the road an occasional truck passed by with its dimmers on. 

她几个小时前就应该被挤奶了。他小心翼翼的坐在椅子上,然后开始挤奶;温热的牛奶灌进了头里。偶尔有一辆开着大灯的卡车从路旁经过。


His dad would be home soon, and so would those cagey girls who managed somehow to have all the fun and leave him and their mother with all the work.

他爸爸马上就该回家了,还有那两个把所有家务活都留给他和妈妈,自己去享乐的姐姐。


 He wondered what they had bought with all their money. Lord, what he wouldn't give for a new pad of real art paper and a set of those marking pens - color pouring out onto the page as fast as you could think it.

他在想她们会用钱买些什么回来。上帝啊,他从来没有得到过一个给真正的画纸用的新画板,或是一套记号笔——色彩会像你想象的那样迅速的印染在纸上。


 Not like stubby school crayons you had to press down on till somebody bitched about your breaking them. 

不像学校那种又短又粗的蜡笔,你必须得用力按压着它们来画画,直到有人来指责你快把它们按断了。
