Once I got around the cafeteria, building three was easy to spot. A large black "3" was painted on a white square on the east corner. I felt my breathing gradually creeping toward hyperventilation as I approached the door. I tried holding my breath as I followed two unisex raincoats through the door. 

我走到饭堂附近时一眼就看到三号楼了,因为东边角落的白色方框里写着个大大的黑色“3”字。当我靠近门口的时候,我发觉我呼吸越来越困难,只好控制住呼吸,跟住两个穿着中性雨衣的人进去了。


The classroom was small. The people in front of me stopped just inside the door to hang up their coats on a long row of hooks. I copied them. They were two girls, one a porcelain-colored blonde, the other also pale, with light brown hair. At least my skin wouldn't be a standout here. 

教室很小,走在我前面的人停在门口,把他们的大衣挂在一排长钩上,我也学着他们那样做。原来他们是两个女孩,一个有着瓷器般的肌肤和明亮的金发,另一个肤色也很白,一头浅棕色的头发。起码在这里我的皮肤不会太突出了。


I took the slip up to the teacher, a tall, balding man whose desk had a nameplate identifying him as Mr. Mason. He gawked at me when he saw my name — not an encouraging response — and of course I flushed tomato red. But at least he sent me to an empty desk at the back without introducing me to the class. 

我把纸条交给那个高高的、秃头的男老师,桌子上的铭牌说他是梅森先生。他看到我的名字的时候,呆呆地看着我— 不是那种表示欢迎的表情— 然后我的脸又红得像个西红柿了。不过还好的是他没有让我向全班介绍自己就让我坐到科室后面那张空桌子去了。


It was harder for my new classmates to stare at me in the back, but somehow, they managed. I kept my eyes down on the reading list the teacher had given me. It was fairly basic: Bronte, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Faulkner. I'd already read everything. 

因为我坐在后面,所以我的新同学也很难盯着我看了,虽然他们想方设法地这样做。我一直把我的视线放在刚才老师给我的那张读书单上,都是一些非常基础的书:勃朗特,莎士比亚,乔叟,福克纳。这些我早就已经看过了。


That was comforting… and boring. I wondered if my mom would send me my folder of old essays, or if she would think that was cheating. I went through different arguments with her in my head while the teacher droned on. 

这样令我很安慰···但又很无聊。我在想妈妈会不会把我那个装旧论文的文件夹寄过来呢,或者她会认为我这样做是作弊?老师在上面嗡嗡地讲课,而我则在下面想着和妈妈会讨论的各种各样的问题。
