And then he fell.

然后他就摔下去了。

He was dead when I reached the bottom, his neck broken."

当我跑下去的时候他已经死了,他的脖子断了。“

 The vampire shook his head in consternation, but his face was still serene.

吸血鬼有些惊惶地摇摇头,但是脸上还是很平静。

"'Did you see him fall?" asked the boy. "Did he lose his footing?"

“你看见他摔下去了吗?”男孩问,“他是滑倒了吗?”

"No, but two of the servants saw it happen.

“没有,但是两个仆人看见了事发经过。

They said that he had looked up as if he had just seen something in the air.

他们说他抬起头来,就好像刚刚在空中看见了什么东西。

Then his entire body moved forward as if being swept by a wind.

然后他的整个身体向前移动,就像被风卷起来一样。

One of them said he was about to say something when he fell.

其中一个仆人说他摔下去的时候正要说些什么。

I thought that he was about to say something too, but it was at that moment I turned away from the window.

我也觉得他似乎想要说些什么,但是那一刻我转过了身,背对着窗户。

My back was turned when I heard the noise."

我刚转身就听见了他摔下去的声音。“

He glanced at the tape recorder.

吸血鬼看了一眼录音机。

 "I could not forgive myself.

“我无法原谅我自己。

I felt responsible for his death," he said. "And everyone else seemed to think I was responsible also."

"But how could they? You said they saw him fall"

“但是他们怎么就能把责任推到你身上?你说了他们看见他摔下去了。”

“他们并没有直接指责我。

They simply knew that something had passed between us that was unpleasant.

他们只知道我们之间发生了什么不愉快的事情。

That we had argued minutes before the fall.

以及在他摔下去前几分钟我们还在争吵。

"The servants had heard us, my mother had heard us.

“仆人们听到了我们的争吵,我母亲也听见了。

My mother would not stop asking me what had happened and why my brother, who was so quiet, had been shouting.

我母亲不停地问我我们之间发生了什么,以及为什么我的弟弟,平时那么安静的一个人竟然会大喊大叫。
