        The reason the Lion did not have to do as the Witch wished was that

        every night, while the woman was asleep, Dorothy carried him food from

        the cupboard. After he had eaten he would lie down on his bed of straw,

        and Dorothy would lie beside him and put her head on his soft, shaggy

        mane, while they talked of their troubles and tried to plan some way to

        escape. But they could find no way to get out of the castle, for it was

        constantly guarded by the yellow Winkies, who were the slaves of the

        Wicked Witch and too afraid of her not to do as she told them.

        The girl had to work hard during the day, and often the Witch threatened

        to beat her with the same old umbrella she always carried in her hand.

        But, in truth, she did not dare to strike Dorothy, because of the mark

        upon her forehead. The child did not know this, and was full of fear for

        herself and Toto. Once the Witch struck Toto a blow with her umbrella

        and the brave little dog flew at her and bit her leg in return. The

        Witch did not bleed where she was bitten, for she was so wicked that the

        blood in her had dried up many years before.

    狮子之所以能够不向恶女巫屈服,是因为每天晚上,恶女巫睡了后,陶乐熙都要从橱柜里拿出食物带给他。他吃了就睡在稻草上,陶乐熙就躺在他身边,头枕着他那柔软而蓬松的鬃毛。然后他们说起眼前的苦恼,要想办法逃跑,可是实在没有办法逃出城堡,因为日日夜夜都有黄色的文集人把守着;文集人都是恶女巫的奴隶,对恶女巫怕得要命,根本不敢违抗她。

   恶女巫手里总是拿着一把旧雨伞,常常威胁陶乐熙说要用那把旧雨伞打她;因此,小女孩白天只得拼命地干活。其实,恶女巫根本不敢打她,因为她额上有那个吻痕;可小女孩并不知道这一点,还成天都为自己和托托提心吊胆的。有一次,恶女巫用伞打了托托一下。小狗狗断然回击,勇敢地冲上去,在恶女巫的腿上咬了一口。可是被咬的地方并没出血,因为她太邪恶了,身上的血液很多年以前就干枯了。

   

        Dorothy's life became very sad as she grew to understand that it would

        be harder than ever to get back to Kansas and Aunt Em again. Sometimes

        she would cry bitterly for hours, with Toto sitting at her feet and

        looking into her face, whining dismally to show how sorry he was for his

        little mistress. Toto did not really care whether he was in Kansas or

        the Land of Oz so long as Dorothy was with him; but he knew the little

        girl was unhappy, and that made him unhappy too.

   陶乐熙逐渐明白,现在想要回到堪萨斯,回到爱姆婶婶身边,恐怕比以前更难了,真是度日如年!有时,她伤心痛哭,一哭就是几个小时;托托坐在她的脚旁,忧郁地看着她,发出低沉的哀鸣,他也为自己的小主人感到非常难过!只要陶乐熙在他身边,管它是在堪萨斯,还是在奥兹大地,托托才不在乎呢。但只要知道小主人心里难受,他就不会快乐。

        Now the Wicked Witch had a great longing to have for her own the Silver

        Shoes which the girl always wore. Her bees and her crows and her wolves

        were lying in heaps and drying up, and she had used up all the power of

        the Golden Cap; but if she could only get hold of the Silver Shoes, they

        would give her more power than all the other things she had lost. She

        watched Dorothy carefully, to see if she ever took off her shoes,

        thinking she might steal them. But the child was so proud of her pretty

        shoes that she never took them off except at night and when she took her

        bath. The Witch was too much afraid of the dark to dare go in Dorothy's

        room at night to take the shoes, and her dread of water was greater than

        her fear of the dark, so she never came near when Dorothy was bathing.

        Indeed, the old Witch never touched water, nor ever let water touch her

        in any way.

   这几天,恶女巫朝思暮想,想把陶乐熙穿在脚上的银鞋据为己有;因为她的黒蜂、乌鸦、野狼一堆一堆的,全都已经干枯,金帽子的魔力也用完了;但只要有了那双银鞋,她得到的魔力,就会比她失去的那些东西加起来还要强大。于是,她每天都仔细观察陶乐熙,看她什么时候把鞋脱下来,才好趁机偷走。可是这孩子,穿着那么漂亮的鞋,很是自豪,除了晚上洗澡,其他时间都不脱下。而恶女巫又极端害怕黑暗,晚上不敢进入陶乐熙的房间去偷鞋;况且,比起黑暗来,她更怕水,怕得要命!因此,陶乐熙洗澡时,她从不靠近。千真万确,这个老巫婆从不沾水,也决不让水沾上她。
