 My first wife was Lillian. We married young--I was twenty-four and she was eighteen--and had four children. Her oldest boy is now forty-seven. Troy Junior, or T.J., was thrown out of college when he was nineteen for selling drugs. I gave him, like the others, five million dollars on his twenty-first birthday. It ran like water through his fingers.

  T.J.'s brother, Rex is forty-four. Our oldest daughter is Libbigail, a child I loved desperately until she went to college and forgot about me. She married an African and I took her name out of my will. Our younger daughter, Mary Ross, Is married to a doctor. He wants to be super-rich but they're heavily in debt.

  All Lillian's children are the same. They're in debt and unemployable, and they want my money.

  After Lillian, I married my secretary, Janie, a beautiful young thing, twenty-two years younger than me. She had two children. The younger one, Rocky, was killed in a car with two of his friends. Her daughter Geena is married to a fool who could lose half a billion dollars in three years.

  I married Tira when I was sixty-four. She was twenty-three and pregnant with Ramble. He's now fourteen and has already been arrested once for theft and once for possession of drugs. He has rings in his ears, eyebrows, and nose. Like the others, he expects to get rich, to get a fortune because I'm his father.

  I know these people. I watch them.

  我的第一任妻子是莉莉安。我们很年轻的时候就结了婚。我当时二十四岁,她才十八岁。我们有四个孩子,大儿子今年四十七岁,名叫小托伊,或者可以叫他T.J.,他十九岁的时候因为贩毒被大学开除了。我在他二十一岁生日的时候给了他五百万美元,跟给其他孩子的一样多,但他花钱如流水一样挥霍一空。

T.J.的弟弟雷克斯今年四十四岁。我们的大女儿叫丽比格,我曾经极度爱她,但她上了大学以后却把我抛在了脑后。她嫁给了一个非洲人,我把她从我的遗嘱里面除名了。我们的小女儿玛丽洛丝嫁给了一名医生,他想成为富翁,但实际上他们却负债累累。

莉莉安的孩子都是一个德行。他们全都身负债务,没有工作,并且想得到我的钱。

莉莉安之后我和我的秘书结了婚。她叫珍妮,一个年轻漂亮的小东西,比我小二十二岁。她有两个孩子。年轻的那个叫罗奇,他和两个朋友被杀害在车里。珍妮的女儿吉娜嫁给了一个蠢货,那个人居然在三年内亏损了五亿美元。

我六十四岁的时候娶了蒂拉。她那时只有二十三岁,然后怀了罗伯。罗伯现在十四岁,曾经因为偷窃和持有毒品被逮捕过。他戴着耳环、眉环、和鼻环。和其他人一样,他也想变得富有,想得到我的财产,因为我是他的父亲。

我了解这些人,我已经把他们看穿了。
