      经典名句-英文:"There's a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep 'em all away from you. That's never possible."



      “Give you a hand up,” he muttered to Dill. “Wait, though.” Jem grabbed his left wristand my right wrist, I grabbed my left wrist and Jem’s right wrist, we crouched, and Dillsat on our saddle. We raised him and he caught the window sill.

      “Hurry,” Jem whispered, “we can’t last much longer.”

      Dill punched my shoulder, and we lowered him to the ground.

      “What’d you see?”

      “Nothing. Curtains. There’s a little teeny light way off somewhere, though.”

      “Let’s get away from here,” breathed Jem. “Let’s go ‘round in back again. Sh-h,” hewarned me, as I was about to protest.

      “Let’s try the back window.”

      “Dill, no,” I said.









      Dill stopped and let Jem go ahead. When Jem put his foot on the bottom step, thestep squeaked. He stood still, then tried his weight by degrees. The step was silent. Jemskipped two steps, put his foot on the porch, heaved himself to it, and teetered a longmoment. He regained his balance and dropped to his knees. He crawled to the window,raised his head and looked in.

      Then I saw the shadow. It was the shadow of a man with a hat on. At first I thought itwas a tree, but there was no wind blowing, and tree-trunks never walked. The backporch was bathed in moonlight, and the shadow, crisp as toast, moved across the porchtoward Jem.

      Dill saw it next. He put his hands to his face.





      When it crossed Jem, Jem saw it. He put his arms over his head and went rigid.

      The shadow stopped about a foot beyond Jem. Its arm came out from its side,dropped, and was still. Then it turned and moved back across Jem, walked along theporch and off the side of the house, returning as it had come.

      Jem leaped off the porch and galloped toward us. He flung open the gate, danced Dilland me through, and shooed us between two rows of swishing collards. Halfwaythrough the collards I tripped; as I tripped the roar of a shotgun shattered theneighborhood.

      Dill and Jem dived beside me. Jem’s breath came in sobs: “Fence by theschoolyard!—hurry, Scout!”




      Jem held the bottom wire; Dill and I rolled through and were halfway to the shelter ofthe schoolyard’s solitary oak when we sensed that Jem was not with us. We ran backand found him struggling in the fence, kicking his pants off to get loose. He ran to theoak tree in his shorts.

      Safely behind it, we gave way to numbness, but Jem’s mind was racing: “We gotta gethome, they’ll miss us.”

      We ran across the schoolyard, crawled under the fence to Deer’s Pasture behind ourhouse, climbed our back fence and were at the back steps before Jem would let uspause to rest.

      Respiration normal, the three of us strolled as casually as we could to the front yard.

      We looked down the street and saw a circle of neighbors at the Radley front gate.





      “We better go down there,” said Jem. “They’ll think it’s funny if we don’t show up.”

      Mr. Nathan Radley was standing inside his gate, a shotgun broken across his arm.

      Atticus was standing beside Miss Maudie and Miss Stephanie Crawford. Miss Racheland Mr. Avery were near by. None of them saw us come up.

      We eased in beside Miss Maudie, who looked around. “Where were you all, didn’t youhear the commotion?”

      “What happened?” asked Jem.

      “Mr. Radley shot at a Negro in his collard patch.”

      “Oh. Did he hit him?”

      “No,” said Miss Stephanie. “Shot in the air. Scared him pale, though. Says if anybodysees a white nigger around, that’s the one. Says he’s got the other barrel waitin‘ for thenext sound he hears in that patch, an’ next time he won’t aim high, be it dog, nigger,or—Jem Finch!”


      内森?拉德利先生站在大门口,猎枪挎在胳膊上,枪上装子 弹的部位张开着。阿迪克斯站在莫迪小姐和斯蒂芬尼?克劳福德小姐身旁。雷切尔小姐和艾弗里先生也在一边。他们谁都没看见我们来了。





      “没有,”斯蒂芬尼说,“是朝天上开的,可把他吓坏了。他说,谁要是在附近看见一个穿白衣的黑鬼,耶就是他。他说另一枝枪管已装好子 弹,只要再听到菜地里有声音,这回不会再朝天上开了,管他是狗,是黑鬼,还是……杰姆?芬奇I”
