Another trick, the boy thought. But he decided to take a chance. A shepherd always takes his chances with wolves and with drought, and that's what makes a shepherd's life exciting.

“又是一种骗人的把戏,”圣地亚哥心想。但他决心尝试一下。牧羊人总会在遇到狼,干旱等情况时赌上一把,这样的生活多么令人兴奋呀。

"I have had the same dream twice," he said. "I dreamed that I was in a field with my sheep, when a child appeared and began to play with the animals. I don't like people to do that, because the sheep are afraid of strangers. But children always seem to be able to play with them without frightening them. I don't know why. I don't know how animals know the age of human beings."

“我已经做过两次同样的梦了,”圣地亚哥说。“我梦见自己赶着羊群,这时一个小孩出现了,然后开始和羊群玩。我不喜欢别人逗弄我的羊们,因为它们害怕陌生人。但是小孩们总能够跟它们玩起来,而并不吓到它们。我不知道这是为什么。羊们怎么会知道人的年龄呢。”

"Tell me more about your dream," said the woman. "I have to get back to my cooking, and, since you don't have much money, I can't give you a lot of time."

“再多告诉我一些,”老婆婆说。“我还得回去做饭,而且你又没有多少钱,我不能给你太多时间。”

"The child went on playing with my sheep for quite a while," continued the boy, a bit upset. "And suddenly, the child took me by both hands and transported me to the Egyptian pyramids."

“那个小孩和我的羊玩了一会儿,”圣地亚哥接着说,有点心烦了。“突然他抓起我的两只手将我带到了古埃及金字塔。”

He paused for a moment to see if the woman knew what the Egyptian pyramids were. But she said nothing.

他停顿了片刻,想要看看那老婆婆知不知道古埃及金字塔。但是老婆婆什么都没说。

"Then, at the Egyptian pyramids,"—he said the last three words slowly, so that the old woman would understand—"the child said to me, If you come here, you will find a hidden treasure.' And, just as she was about to show me the exact location, I woke up. Both times."

“然后,在金--塔那里,”为了让老婆婆听明白,圣地亚哥故意将那三个字说的慢一点。“那小孩对我说,‘如果你来这,你将会发现被掩藏的宝物。’正当她要给我指宝物的准确位置时,

我醒了。两次都是这样。”

The woman was silent for some time. Then she again took his hands and studied them carefully.

老婆婆又沉默了一会儿,然后又拿起圣地亚哥的双手仔细地观察起来。
