"Hello," said a quiet, musical voice. 

“你好啊,”一个安静而悦耳的声音这样说。


I looked up, stunned that he was speaking to me. He was sitting as far away from me as the desk allowed, but his chair was angled toward me. His hair was dripping wet, disheveled — even so, he looked like he'd just finished shooting a commercial for hair gel. His dazzling face was friendly, open, a slight smile on his flawless lips. But his eyes were careful. 

我目瞪口呆地抬起头,他居然在跟我说话。他坐得离我尽可能地远,但他的椅子转向了我这边。他的头发湿哒哒的,而且很凌乱——即使这样,他看上去还是像刚拍完发胶广告一样。他那耀眼的脸蛋是那么友好坦率,他那完美的嘴唇还带着一丝微笑。但他的眼睛却显得那么的小心翼翼。


"My name is Edward Cullen," he continued. "I didn't have a chance to introduce myself last week. You must be Bella Swan." 

“我叫爱德华 卡伦,”他继续说。“上星期还没机会介绍我自己。你一定是贝拉 斯旺了。”


My mind was spinning with confusion. Had I made up the whole thing? He was perfectly polite now. I had to speak; he was waiting. But I couldn't think of anything conventional to say. 

我的大脑疑惑地转动着。我已经弥补好整件事了么?他现在超级有礼貌。我一定要说点什么,因为他在等着。但我又不知道说点什么常规的东西好。


"H-how do you know my name?" I stammered. 

“你...你怎么知道我的名字的?”我结结巴巴地问。


He laughed a soft, enchanting laugh. 

他温柔而迷人地笑了笑。


"Oh, I think everyone knows your name. The whole town's been waiting for you to arrive." 

“哦,我觉得所有的人都知道你的名字啊。整个镇上的人都在等着你的到来呢。”


I grimaced. I knew it was something like that. 

我露出痛苦的表情。我就知道会是这样。


"No," I persisted stupidly. "I meant, why did you call me Bella?" 

“不是这个意思啦,”我傻傻地坚持道。“我的意思是,为什么你叫我贝拉?”


He seemed confused. "Do you prefer Isabella?" 

他看上去困惑了。“你更喜欢别人叫你伊莎贝拉吗?”


"No, I like Bella," I said. "But I think Charlie — I mean my dad — must call me Isabella behind my back — that's what everyone here seems to know me as," I tried to explain, feeling like an utter moron. 
“不是啊,我喜欢别人叫我贝拉,”我说。“但我觉得查理——我指我爸爸——他一定在我背后叫我伊莎贝拉啊——这里所有人都知道我这个名字。”我试着解释,感觉自己彻底像个白痴。
"Oh." He let it drop. I looked away awkwardly. 

“哦。”他放下了这个话题。我尴尬地望向别处。
