My favorite part of reading to Hassan was when we came across a big word that he didn’t know. I’d tease him, expose his ignorance. One time, I was reading him a Mullah Nasruddin story and he stopped me. “What does that word mean?”

给哈桑读书的时候,最让我高兴的,就是在碰到有他无法理解的词的时候。我会取笑他,嘲弄他的无知。有一次,在我给他读毛拉纳斯鲁丁的故事时,他让我停下来。“那个词是什么意思?”


“Which one?”

“哪一个?”


“Imbecile.”

“傻瓜。”


“You don’t know what it means?” I said, grinning.

“你不知道它的意思?”我边说边笑着。


“Nay, Amir agha.”

“不知道,阿米尔少爷。”


“But it’s such a common word!”

“但是这个词是很常见的啊!”


“Still, I don’t know it.” If he felt the sting of my tease, his smiling face didn’t show it.

“不过我还是不知道。”即使他感受到了的嘲讽,他也只是微笑着没有表现出来。


“Well, everyone in my school knows what it means,” I said. “Let’s see. ‘Imbecile.’ It means smart, intelligent. I’ll use it in a sentence for you. ‘When it comes to words, Hassan is an imbecile.’”

“嗯,这个词的意思我们学校里的所有人都知道。”我说道。“让我们来看一下。‘傻瓜’它的意思是聪明、机智。我用它造个句给你看一下。‘在词语这方面,哈桑就是个傻瓜。’”


“Aaah,” he said, nodding.

“啊”他点头说道。


I would always feel guilty about it later. So I’d try to make up for it by giving him one of my old shirts or a broken toy. I would tell myself that was amends enough for a harmless prank.

我总是会在不久后感到愧疚。所以我会给他我的一件旧衬衣或是一个破玩具来试图弥补。我会告诉自己说,对于一个无害的恶作剧来说,这样的补偿已经够了。


Hassan’s favorite book by far was the _Shahnamah_, the tenth-century epic of ancient Persian heroes. He liked all of the chapters, the shahs of old, Feridoun, Zal, and Rudabeh. But his favorite story, and mine, was “Rostam and Sohrab,” the tale of the great warrior Rostam and his fleet-footed horse, Rakhsh. Rostam mortally wounds his valiant nemesis, Sohrab, in battle, only to discover that Sohrab is his long-lost son. 

长久以来哈桑最喜欢的书是《沙娜马》,这是一部描写十世纪古代波斯英雄的史诗。他喜欢里面所有的章节,里面的老国王:费里敦、扎尔、和鲁达贝。但是他最喜欢的故事,也是我最喜欢的,是“罗斯坦和索拉博”,这讲述了伟大的战士罗斯坦和他的千里马拉克什的故事。在战斗中,罗斯坦给予了他的强敌索拉博致命的一击,最终发现索拉博是他失散已久的儿子。
