“Fascinating,” I repeated, a little breathless, feeling like a man who discovers a buried treasure in his own backyard. Walking down the hill, thoughts were exploding in my head like the fireworks at _Chaman_. _Best story you’ve read me in a long time_, he’d said. I had read him a _lot_ of stories. Hassan was asking me something.

“太奇妙了。”我重复着,有点透不过气来,感觉像是一个人在家中后院发现了一处宝藏那样。在下山的时候,各种想法在我的脑子里炸开了,就像查曼的烟花那样。这是你最近一段时间读的最棒的故事了,他这么说着。我给他读过很多故事。哈桑在问我问题。


“What?” I said.

“什么?”我说。


“What does that mean, ‘fascinating’?”

“奇妙这个词是什么意思?”


I laughed. Clutched him in a hug and planted a kiss on his cheek.

我大笑,给了他一个拥抱,并在他脸颊上亲了一下。


“What was that for?” he said, startled, blushing.

“这是为什么呀?”他吃惊地说着,脸红了。


I gave him a friendly shove. Smiled. “You’re a prince, Hassan. You’re a prince and I love you.”

我友好地推了他一下,笑着说:“你就是王子,哈桑。你是个王子,我爱你。”


That same night, I wrote my first short story. It took me thirty minutes. It was a dark little tale about a man who found a magic cup and learned that if he wept into the cup, his tears turned into pearls. But even though he had always been poor, he was a happy man and rarely shed a tear. 

在那天晚上,我写出了我的第一个短篇故事。这花费了我半小时。这是个一个忧郁的小故事,讲述了一个男人发现了一个魔法杯,并且得知如果他对着杯子哭泣,落入杯中的眼泪会变成珍珠。但是尽管他很贫穷,他却是个快乐的人,很少流泪。


So he found ways to make himself sad so that his tears could make him rich. As the pearls piled up, so did his greed grow. The story ended with the man sitting on a mountain of pearls, knife in hand, weeping helplessly into the cup with his beloved wife’s slain body in his arms.

所以他想尽办法让自己感到悲伤,这样那些眼泪就能让他变得富有。而当珍珠越积越多,他变得越来越贪婪。在故事结束的时候,他坐在珍珠山上,手里拿着一把刀,怀里抱着他心爱的妻子的尸体,无助地往杯子里落泪。


That evening, I climbed the stairs and walked into Baba’s smoking room, in my hands the two sheets of paper on which I had scribbled the story. Baba and Rahim Khan were smoking pipes and sipping brandy when I came in.

那天晚上,我爬上楼梯,走进爸爸的吸烟室,手里拿着两张纸,上面是我写的故事。在我走进去的时候,爸爸和拉辛汗正拿着烟斗抽烟,喝着白兰地。
