我在那时候当然是“丑小鸭”,自己也是知道的,但是终不以此而减灭我的热情。

At that time, I knew then I was an “Ugly Duckling”, but that didn’t damp down my passion.


每逢她抱着猫来看我写字,我便不自觉的振作起来,用了平常所无的努力去映写,感着一种无所希求迷蒙的喜乐。

Every time she came to watch me practice calligraphy with the cat in her arms, I would hearten up unconsciously and write after the caligraphy with the most effort and feel the inexplicable joy in my heart.


并不问她是否爱我,或者也还不知道自己是爱着她,总之对于她的存在感到亲近喜悦,并且愿为她有所尽力,这是当时实在的心情,也是她所给我的赐物了。

I didn’t ask her whether she loved me or not, and nor did I know whether I  was in love with her or not. In a word,I felt happy for her existence and desired to do everything I could do for her. That was my real  mind, and that was also something good that she gives me.


在她是怎样不能知道,自己的情绪大约只是淡淡的一种恋慕,始终没有想到男女夫妇的问题。

I didn’t know how she felt,  my feeling is just a slight adoration, and there was no thought of anything having to do with sexual relations of man and woman.


有一天晚上,宋姨大大忽然又发表对于姚姓的憎恨,未了说道,

One evening, Concubine Song suddenly burst into another fit of abuse at Yaos and ended up it with,


“阿三那小东西,也不是好东西,将来总要流落到拱辰桥去做婊子的。”

“That Goddam Ah San! She’s no good either. She is sure to end up a bitch some day in Gong-Chen-Qiao.”

 我不很明白做婊子这些是什么事情,但当时听了心里想道,

“她如果真是流落做了婊子,我必定去救她出来。

I didn’t quite understand what was meant by becoming a bitch. However, I thought , “If she should really be reduced to a bitch, I’ll definitely save her out.”


大半年的光阴这样的消费过去了。到了七八月里因为母亲生病,我便离开杭州回家去了。

More than six mouths went by. In July or August that year, I left Hangzhou for home because my mother is illing.


一个月以后,阮升告假回去,顺便到我家里,

One month later, Servant Ruan Sheng incidentally paid me a visit while he was on leave.


说起花牌楼的事情,说道, “杨家的三姑娘患霍乱死了。

”About the things in Hua-Pai-Lou, he said,“San-Gu-Niang of the Yang family died of cholera.”


我那时也很觉得不快,想像她的悲惨的死相,但同时却又似乎很是安静,仿佛心里有一块大石头已经放下了。

I also felt very sad, think of her tragic death, but i also fely very calm like a big stone weighing on my heart had been removed
