《断背山》中英对照版9

本文属阅读资料
The fourth summer since Brokeback Mountain came on and in June Ennis had a general delivery letter from Jack Twist, the first sign of life in all that time.
  Friend this letter is a long time over due. Hope you get it. Heard you was in Riverton. Im coming thru on the 24th, thought Id stop and buy you a beer Drop me a line if you can, say if your there.
  The return address was Childress, Texas. Ennis wrote back, you bet, gave the Riverton address.
  The day was hot and clear in the morning, but by noon the clouds had pushed up out of the west rolling a little sultry air before them. Ennis, wearing his best shirt, white with wide black stripes, didn't know what time Jack would get there and so had taken the day off, paced back and forth, looking down into a street pale with dust. Alma was saying something about taking his friend to the Knife & Fork for supper instead of cooking it was so hot, if they could get a baby-sitter, but Ennis said more likely he'd just go out with Jack and get drunk. Jack was not a restaurant type, he said, thinking of the dirty spoons sticking out of the cans of cold beans balanced on the log.
  Late in the afternoon, thunder growling, that same old green pickup rolled in and he saw Jack get out of the truck, beat-up Resistol tilted back. A hot jolt scalded Ennis and he was out on the landing pulling the door closed behind him. Jack took the stairs two and two. They seized each other by the shoulders, hugged mightily, squeezing the breath out of each other, saying, son of a bitch, son of a bitch, then, and easily as the right key turns the lock tumblers, their mouths came together, and hard, Jack's big teeth bringing blood, his hat falling to the floor, stubble rasping, wet saliva welling, and the door opening and Alma looking out for a few seconds at Ennis's straining shoulders and shutting the door again and still they clinched, pressing chest and groin and thigh and leg together, treading on each other's toes until they pulled apart to breathe and Ennis, not big on endearments, said what he said to his horses and daughters, little darlin.
  The door opened again a few inches and Alma stood in the narrow light.
  What could he say? "Alma, this is Jack Twist, Jack, my wife Alma." His chest was heaving. He could smell Jack -- the intensely familiar odor of cigarettes, musky sweat and a faint sweetness like grass, and with it the rushing cold of the mountain. "Alma," he said, "Jack and me ain't seen each other in four years." As if it were a reason. He was glad the light was dim on the landing but did not turn away from her.
  "Sure enough," said Alma in a low voice. She had seen what she had seen. Behind her in the room lightning lit the window like a white sheet waving and the baby cried.
  "You got a kid?" said Jack. His shaking hand grazed Ennis's hand, electrical current snapped between them.
  "Two little girls," Ennis said. "Alma Jr. and Francine. Love them to pieces." Alma's mouth twitched.
  "I got a boy," said Jack. "Eight months old. Tell you what, I married a cute little old Texas girl down in Childress -- Lureen." From the vibration of the floorboard on which they both stood Ennis could feel how hard Jack was shaking.
  "Alma," he said. "Jack and me is goin out and get a drink. Might not get back tonight, we get drinkin and talkin."
  "Sure enough," Alma said, taking a dollar bill from her pocket. Ennis guessed she was going to ask him to get her a pack of cigarettes, bring him back sooner.
  "Please to meet you," said Jack, trembling like a run-out horse.
  "Ennis -- " said Alma in her misery voice, but that didn't slow him down on the stairs and he called back, "Alma, you want smokes there's some in the pocket a my blue shirt in the bedroom."
  They went off in Jack's truck, bought a bottle of whiskey and within twenty minutes were in the Motel Siesta jouncing a bed. A few handfuls of hail rattled against the window followed by rain and slippery wind banging the unsecured door of the next room then and through the night.
  
       断背山放牧之后的第四年夏天,六月份,埃尼斯收到了杰克?崔斯特的信,是一封存局候领邮件。

       伙计,这封信早就写了,希望你能收得到。听说你现在瑞弗顿。我24号要去那儿,我想我应该请你喝一杯,如果可以,给我电话。
 
      回信地址是德州的切尔里德斯。埃尼斯写了回信,当然,随信附上了他在瑞弗顿的地址。

      那天,早晨的时候还烈日炎炎,晴空万里。到了中午,云层就从西方堆积翻滚而来,空气变得潮湿闷热。因为不能确定杰克几点钟能到,埃尼斯便干脆请了一整天的假。他穿着自己最好的白底黑色宽条纹上衣,不时地来回踱步,一个劲儿朝布满灰白色尘埃的街道上张望。阿尔玛说,天实在太热了,要是能找到保姆帮忙带孩子,他们就可以请杰克去餐馆吃饭,而不是自己做饭。埃尼斯则回答他只想和杰克一起出去喝喝酒。杰克不是个爱下馆子的人,他说。脑海中浮现出那些搁在圆枕木上的冰凉的豆子罐头,还有从罐头里伸出来的脏兮兮的汤匙。

      下午晚些时候,雷声开始隆隆轰鸣。那辆熟悉的绿色旧卡车驶入了埃尼斯的眼帘,杰克从车上跳出来,一巴掌把翘起来的车尾拍下去。埃尼斯象被一股热浪灼到了似的。他走出房间,站到了楼梯口,随手关上身后的房门。杰克一步两台阶地跨上来。他们紧紧抓住彼此的臂膀,狠狠地抱在一起,这一抱几乎令对方窒息。他们嘴里念叨着,混蛋,你这混蛋。然后,自然而然地,就象钥匙找对了锁孔,他们的嘴唇猛地合在了一处。杰克的虎牙出血了,帽子掉在了地上。他们的胡茬儿扎着彼此的脸,到处都是湿湿的唾液。这时,门开了。阿尔玛向外瞥了一眼,盯着埃尼斯扭曲的臂膀看了几秒,就又关上了门。他俩还在拥吻,胸膛,小腹和大腿紧贴在一起,互相踩着对方的脚趾,直到不能呼吸才放开。埃尼斯轻声地,柔情无限地叫着“小宝贝”——这是他对女儿们和马匹才会用到的称呼。

      门又被推开了几英寸,阿尔玛出现在细窄的光带里。

      他又能说些什么呢。阿尔玛,这是杰克?崔斯特,杰克,这是我妻子阿尔玛。他的胸腔涨得满满的,鼻子里都是杰克身上的味道。浓烈而熟悉的烟草味儿,汗香味儿,青草的淡淡甜味儿,还有那来自山中的凛冽寒气。“阿尔玛,”他说,“我和杰克四年没见了。”好像这能成为一个理由似的。他目不转睛地盯着她,暗自庆幸楼梯口的灯光昏暗不明。

      “没错。”阿尔玛低声说,她什么都看到了。在她身后的房间里,一道闪电把窗子照得好象一条正在舞动的白床单,婴儿开始哇哇大哭。

      “你有孩子了?”杰克说。他颤抖的手擦过埃尼斯的手,有一股电流在它们之间噼啪作响。
      “两个小丫头。”埃尼斯说,“小阿尔玛和弗朗仙。我爱死她们了。”
      阿尔玛的嘴角扯了扯。
      “我有一个男孩。”杰克说,“八个月大了。我在切尔德里斯娶了个小巧可爱的德州姑娘,叫露玲。”他们脚下的地板在颤动,埃尼斯能够感受到杰克哆嗦得有多么厉害。
      “阿尔玛,我要和杰克出去喝一杯,今晚可能不回来了,我们想边喝边聊。”
      “好。”阿尔玛说。从口袋里掏出一美元纸币。埃尼斯猜测她可能是想让自己带包烟,以便早点回来。
      “很高兴见到你。”杰克说。颤抖得像一匹精疲力尽的马。
      “埃尼斯。”阿尔玛伤心地呼唤着。但是这并没能使埃尼斯放慢下楼梯的脚步。他应声道:“阿尔玛,你要想抽烟,就去卧室里我那间蓝色上衣的口袋里找。”

      他们坐着杰克的卡车离开了,买了瓶威士忌。20分钟后就在西斯塔汽车旅馆的床上翻云覆雨起来。一阵冰雹砸在窗子上,随即冷雨接踵而至。风撞击着隔壁房间那不算结实的门,就这么撞了一夜。
