双语美文 | 《Stranger in the Night》

Stranger in the Night

 

Many television programs are very realistic.

The viewer often feels

that whatever happened in the film could well happen to him.

With only a little imagination,

every man in the street becomes a thief,a spy or a murderer.

Jane had been watching a spy film at a friend’s house.

In it,a young girl had been followed and murdered.

It had been very realistic,

and she felt a little frightened walking to the station.

She took the train back to the center of the city.

There were a lot of people traveling,so she felt much safer.

During the trip she looked round at the other people in the compartment.

A man sitting opposite her, reading a newspaper, glanced at her.

She thought nothing of it until she saw him staring at her.

Remembering the film and feeling very uncomfortable.

she got out of the train and went to the bus stop.

When he boarded the same bus as her she was convinced that he was following her.

As long as she had been with other people she wasn’t frightened.

But when she got off the bus,the streets were almost empty.

She walked as quickly as she could.

She could hear footsteps following her but she didn’t dare to look.

After what seemed to have been hours,but was in fact only a few minutes,

she reached the front door.

She felt for her keys,

but was unable to find them because she was so frightened.

The footsteps stopped behind her.

She felt a hand on her shoulder.

Instead of feeling hands round her throat,

however,she heard a pleasant voice.

I apologize if I frightened you.

I’m your new neighbor.

I thought I recognized you in the train,but I wasn’t sure.

很多电视节目极其逼真。

观众经常感到

片中情节会碰巧在自己身上重演。

稍微发挥一点想象力,

大街上的所有人就变成了小偷,间谍或者杀人犯。

简正在朋友家里看一部间谍片,

片中,一位年轻姑娘被跟踪并被杀害。

故事情节很真实,

看完电视去车站时,简很害怕。

她搭乘火车返回市中心。

乘车的人很多,所以她感觉到很安全。

她环视了一圈车厢里的其他人。

坐在她对面的人在看报纸,他瞥了她一眼。

起初,她不以为然。

可是,她猛然想起了片中的情节,一下子变得不安起来。

她下了火车奔向汽车站。

当他也乘上同一辆公共汽车时,她确信他在跟踪她。

只要有人跟她在一起,她就不会害怕。

但是当她下车时,街道上空无一人。

她跑得飞快,

她能听见后面的脚步声却不敢回头看。

几分钟过去了,对她来说宛如漫长的几个小时,

她终于到达了门口。

她想掏出钥匙,

但是没有找到,因为她太害怕了。

脚步声在她后面停下了。

她感到一只手放到自己肩上。

但是,那只手没有像她想象的那样掐住她的喉咙,

相反,她听到了一个愉快的声音。

我很抱歉吓到你了,

我是你的新邻居。

我想我在火车上认出了你,但那时我不敢确信。
