When I walked into the warm office, I almost turned around and walked back out. 
我走进温暖的办公室的时候,差点就要转身走了。
Edward Cullen stood at the desk in front of me. I recognized again that tousled bronze hair. He didn't appear to notice the sound of my entrance. I stood pressed against the back wall, waiting for the receptionist to be free. 
爱德华 卡伦就站在我前面的桌子旁。我又是先注意到他那凌乱的青铜色头发。
他好像没有听到我进来的声音。我紧紧地贴着墙壁站着,看那个接待员什么时候才有空。
He was arguing with her in a low, attractive voice. I quickly picked up the gist of the argument. He was trying to trade from sixth-hour Biology to another time — any other time. 
他用他那迷人的低音跟她争辩。我很快就理清了这场争论的要点,他想把第六小时的生物课换到另外一个时间上——其他的任何时间。
I just couldn't believe that this was about me. It had to be something else, something that happened before I entered the Biology room. The look on his face must have been about another aggravation entirely. It was impossible that this stranger could take such a sudden, intense dislike to me. 
我真不敢相信这是因为我。一定是其他原因,是我进生物室之前发生的原因。他脸上的表情清楚地表明他被完全激怒了。一个陌生人对突然我如此的厌恶,这是不可能的啊!
The door opened again, and the cold wind suddenly gusted through the room, rustling the papers on the desk, swirling my hair around my face. The girl who came in merely stepped to the desk, placed a note in the wire basket, and walked out again. But Edward Cullen's back stiffened, and he turned slowly to glare at me — his face was absurdly handsome — with piercing, hate-filled eyes. For an instant, I felt a thrill of genuine fear, raising the hair on my arms. The look only lasted a second, but it chilled me more than the freezing wind. He turned back to the receptionist. 
门又开了,一阵狂风突然吹进房间,吹得桌子上的纸沙沙作响,头发甩在我的脸上。
进来的女生径直地走到桌子前,把笔记放进篮子里就走了。但爱德华 卡伦的后背突然僵硬了,他转过身看着我——他好帅——眼睛充满着敏感和仇恨。
有那么一会儿,我紧张得害怕起来,手臂上的汗毛都竖起来了。那种眼神只维持了一秒,但比寒风更让人寒心。他转回去对着接待员。
"Never mind, then," he said hastily in a voice like velvet. "I can see that it's impossible. Thank you so much for your help." And he turned on his heel without another look at me, and disappeared out the door. 
“那没事了。”他急忙用天鹅绒般的声音说。“我知道那是不可能的了。谢谢你的帮助。”他说完后转身就走,再没看我一眼,然后就消失在门外了。
I went meekly to the desk, my face white for once instead of red, and handed her the signed slip. 
我温顺地向桌子走去,我的脸只有这次是变白而不是变红(因为女主总是脸红?),把签名表交给她。
"How did your first day go, dear?" the receptionist asked maternally. 
“第一天过得怎样啊,亲爱的?”接待员像母亲一样问我。
"Fine," I lied, my voice weak. She didn't look convinced. 
“挺好的。”我小声地骗她。她好像也不怎么相信。
When I got to the truck, it was almost the last car in the lot. It seemed like a haven, already the closest thing to home I had in this damp green hole. I sat inside for a while, just staring out the windshield blankly. But soon I was cold enough to need the heater, so I turned the key and the engine roared to life. I headed back to Charlie's house, fighting tears the whole way there. 
回到我的卡车旁,我发现它差不多是停在停车场里最后一辆车了。它就像一个避难所,是这个潮湿的绿洞里可以让我最接近家的东西。我在里面坐了一会儿,头脑空白地看着挡风玻璃。很快我就冷得要开暖气,所以我拿出钥匙开动引擎。我开车回查理的房子,一路上忍着不要让眼泪掉下来。
