“What is it, Amir?” Baba said, reclining on the sofa and lacing his hands behind his head. Blue smoke swirled around his face. His glare made my throat feel dry. I cleared it and told him I’d written a story.

“那是什么,阿米尔?”爸爸说,他倚靠在沙发上,双手置于脑后。蓝色的烟雾围绕在他的脸庞。他的目光让我唇干舌燥。我清了清喉咙,告诉他我写了个故事。


Baba nodded and gave a thin smile that conveyed little more than feigned interest. “Well, that’s very good, isn’t it?” he said. Then nothing more. He just looked at me through the cloud of smoke.

爸爸点点头,淡然一笑,这说明他对此并无多大兴趣。“嗯,那非常棒,是吗?”他说。然后就没说其他的了。他只是透过缭绕的烟雾看着我。


I probably stood there for under a minute, but, to this day, it was one of the longest minutes of my life. Seconds plodded by, each separated from the next by an eternity. Air grew heavy damp, almost solid. I was breathing bricks. 

也许我在那里站了都不到一分钟,但至今为止,那仍是我生命中最漫长的一分钟。一秒一秒过去,每秒钟之间似乎都隔着永恒。空气变得沉闷潮湿,几乎凝固,我感到呼吸艰难。


Baba went on staring me down, and didn’t offer to read. As always, it was Rahim Khan who rescued me. He held out his hand and favored me with a smile that had nothing feigned about it. 

爸爸继续看着我,没有想要读一下的意思。像往常一样,拉辛汗救了我。他伸出了手,给了我一个毫不造作的微笑。


“May I have it, Amir jan? I would very much like to read it.” Baba hardly ever used the term of endearment _jan_ when he addressed me.

“可以让我看看吗,亲爱的阿米尔?我很想要读读看。”爸爸在称呼我的时候,几乎从未使用过“亲爱的”这个词。


Baba shrugged and stood up. He looked relieved, as if he too had been rescued by Rahim Khan. “Yes, give it to Kaka Rahim. I’m going upstairs to get ready.” And with that, he left the room. 

爸爸耸耸肩,站起来。他看起来如释重负,似乎拉辛汗也解救了他。“对,把它给拉辛汗。我要上楼去准备了。”他说着,离开了房间。


Most days I worshiped Baba with an intensity approaching the religious. But right then, I wished I could open my veins and drain his cursed blood from my body.

绝大多数时候,我像看待神一般崇敬爸爸。但是在那时,我多么希望我可以打开自己的静脉,让他可恨的血从我的身上流光。


An hour later, as the evening sky dimmed, the two of them drove off in my father’s car to attend a party. On his way out, Rahim Khan hunkered before me and handed me my story and another folded piece of paper. 

一小时后,天色更暗了,他们两个人开着我爸爸的车要去参加派对。在出门的时候,拉辛汗在我面前蹲下,递给我我的故事及另一张折起来的纸。
