Prologue 

序言

1、1803, Helford passage, southwest England.

1803年, 在海尔格的廊中,英格兰西南部。

2、Mawgan Hendry was dying. If he'd seen it coming, he might have had some chance to prevent it.

摩根·海瑞快要不行了。但如果他能预料到这一刻的到来,或许还有些许机会阻止这一切的发生。

3、As it was, all hope against such sudden and decisive brutality faded into the night with his first labored breath.

但当他出生的那一刻,这场突如其来的腥风血雨像命中注定一般必定会到来,而希望则随之消逝在黑夜里。

4、On the river's inky swell, Cornish fishing boats continued to chatter and creak uneasily, though Mawgan could no longer hear them over the blood pressure drumming in his ears.

停靠在河岸的康沃尔渔船依旧不安分地摆动着,不时发出咯吱咯吱的响声,但即使是这样微弱的声响摩根也无法听到了,血液充盈着他的双耳,真的什么都听不到了。

5、He clawed desperately at his neck, drawing skin under his nails, tearing and ripping until his raw flesh burned.

他绝望地抓挠着脖子,指甲嵌入了肌肤,泪水伴随着撕扯,直到鲜血模糊了皮肉。

6、But he could not free himself.

但是他依旧得不到任何解脱。

7、His fists lashed wildly to no weightless, kicking and thrashing in frenzied panic like a crazed marionette until labored breath became no breath at all and he was still.

摩根的双拳在空中疯狂地挥舞着,他像个牵线的怖偶,痛苦地踢打,直到呼吸停止的那一刻,他便安静地一动不动了。

8、A strengthening easterly wind cut into the throat of the Helford River, lashing rain at Mawgan's startled face, bluing and congested under the dim glow of the jetty lantern.

一股猛烈的东风吹过海尔格湖的中心,也捎来了一阵强降雨。雨水拍打在摩根僵直的脸上,在昏暗的天空与河堤的映衬下,泛着蓝光。

9. His eyes grew dark as the empty night, bulging in their sockets as he dropped forcefully to his knees. thumping hard onto wet pontoon boards.

他的双眼就像这深渊的黑夜已经失去的光彩,当他的双膝重重地撞击在潮湿的船板上时,双眼也仿佛跟着夺眶而出。 

10. He sensed unconsciousness was moments away, and for all his brawn he could not fight it.

摩根全身的知觉都感受不到了,但他却对此无能为力。

11. Between his thumb and forefinger he grasped a silver crucifix that hung loosely from his neck as he prayed for deliverance.

在他的拇指和食指之间还紧紧地攥着一个银色的十字架,那是他用来通往天堂的钥匙。

12. But deliver us from evil!


请将我们传送到一个没有恶的世界!

13. Then a voice whispered in his ear cold and threatening.

然后有一个冰冷而可怖的声音在他耳畔响起。
