Coraline went down the hall, to where her father's study was. She opened the door. There was a man in there, sitting at the keyboard, with his back to her. 
卡萝琳下楼梯到客厅,朝爸爸的书房走去。她打开门,看到一个男人,坐在键盘前,背对着她。


'Hello,' said Coraline. 'I - I mean, she said to say that lunch is ready.'

“你好。“卡萝琳说道,”我、我想说,她叫我告诉你午饭好了。“


The man turned round.His eyes were buttons - big and black and shiny.

那个男人回过头。他的眼睛是一对纽扣——又大又黑还泛光!

'Hello, Coraline,' he said. 'I'm starving.'
”你好,卡萝琳。”他说道,“正好我饿了!”

He got up and went with her into the kitchen. They sat at the kitchen table and Coraline's other mother brought them lunch. A huge, golden-brown roasted chicken, fried potatoes, tiny green peas. Coraline shovelled the food into her mouth. It tasted wonderful.
他起身,和卡萝琳一起去了厨房,在餐桌边坐了下来。卡萝琳的另一个妈妈给他们准备了午餐:一只超大的金灿灿的烤鸡,炸薯条和绿油油的小豌豆。卡萝琳一顿狼吞虎咽,那味道实在是棒极了!

'We've been waiting for you for a long time,' said Coraline's other father.
“我们一直等你等得好久了。“卡萝琳的另一个爸爸说。


'For me?'

”等我?“


'Yes,' said the other mother. 'It wasn't the same here without you. But we knew you'd arrive one day, and then we could be a proper family. Would you like some more chicken?'
”是啊。“另一个妈妈接着说道,”没有你的日子真难熬,但是我们知道你一定会回来的,然后我们一家人就可以团聚了。还要再来点烤鸡吗?“

It was the best chicken that Coraline had ever eaten. Her mother sometimes made chicken, but it was always out of packets, or frozen, and was very dry, and it never tasted of anything. 

这是卡萝琳有生以来吃过最好吃的鸡了!虽然妈妈有时候也做,但总是用那种袋装的,或者是冷冻的,反正就是干巴巴的吃起来什么味都没有。

When Coraline's father cooked chicken he bought real chicken, but he did strange things to it, like stewing it in wine, or stuffing it with prunes, or baking it in pastry, and Coraline would always refuse to touch it on principle.

倒是爸爸是拿活鸡做的,但是他总是加一些奇怪的配料,譬如用红酒炖鸡,要么往里面塞西梅干,要么和馅饼一起烤,反正卡萝琳原则上是一口都不碰的。


She took some more chicken.
而此时,卡萝琳又要了更多的烤鸡。

'I didn't know I had another mother,' said Coraline cautiously.
”我不知道我还有一个妈妈。“卡萝琳谨慎地说。

'Of course you do. Everyone does,' said the other mother, her black-button eyes gleaming. 'After lunch I thought you might like to play in your room with the rats.'
”你当然有了。每个人都有。“另一个妈妈回答道。她的黑色纽扣眼睛正在闪闪发光,”等你吃完了,我猜你可能会想和那些老鼠在你卧室里玩。“

'The rats?'
”老鼠?“

'From upstairs.'
”对,从楼上来的。“

Coraline had never seen a rat, except on television. She was quite looking forward to it. This was turning out to be a very interesting day after all.
卡萝琳从来没有见过老鼠,除了在电视上。她其实相当期待,毕竟今天变成了超级有趣的一天呢!
