She sat without answering. She sat that way for almost a full minute, and then she did something which shocked me as badly as my sudden flow of tears must have shocked her. She reached out and shoved everything off the table with one wide sweep of her arm — plates, glasses, cups, silverware, the he bowl of collards, the bowl of squash, the platter with the carved ham on it, the milk, the pitcher of cold tea. All off the table and onto the floor, ker-smash.

"Holy shit!" Dean cried, rocking back from the table so hard he damned near went over on his back.

Janice无言以对,静坐了差不多一分钟,接下来的动作吓了我一跳,正如我突如其来的泪水肯定也吓了她一跳。她伸手把桌上的东西全都扫到了地上——盘子、玻璃杯、茶杯、刀叉、一碗羽衣甘蓝、一碗南瓜、火腿拼盘、牛奶,还有一壶冰茶,全都扫到地上,稀里哗啦。

“哎呀!”Dean惊呼着往后闪避,差点仰倒在地上。

 

Silverware:并非银器。所谓“silverware”在餐桌语境下是个很宽泛的概念,泛指纯银和镀银的餐具,甚至连镀银都没有也无所谓,基本和“flatware”是同义词。与“flatware”相对的是“hollowware”,指杯碗等空心器具。


Janice ignored him. It was Brutal and me she was looking at, mostly me. "Do you mean to kill him, you cowards?" she asked. "Do you mean to kill the man who saved Melinda Moores"s life, who tried to save those little girls, lives? Well, at least there will be one less black man in the world, won"t there? You can console yourselves with that. One less nigger."

She got up, looked at her chair, and kicked it into the wall. It rebounded and fell into the spilled squash. I took her wrist and she yanked it free.

Janice没管Dean。她盯着暴力男和我,主要是我。“你们这帮懦夫真要杀了他?那可是MelindaMoores的救命恩人,他本来还想救回那两个小姑娘啊。至少世上少了个黑人,对吧?你们就那么自我安慰吧,除掉一个黑鬼。”

说完,她起身看看自己的椅子,一脚把椅子踢到墙边。椅子撞墙反弹,倒在倾覆的南瓜上。我抓住她的手腕,却被她挣开。

 


 

"Don"t touch me", she said. "Next week this time you"ll be a murderer, no better than that man Wharton, so don"t touch me."

She went out onto the back stoop, put her apron up to her face, and began to sob into it. The four of us looked at each other. After a little bit I got on my feet and set about cleaning up the mess. Brutal joined me first, then Harry and Dean. When the place looked more or less shipshape again, they left. None of us said a word the whole time. There was really nothing left to say.

“别碰我。下周此时你就是个杀人犯,跟那个Wharton没区别。不要碰我。”

Janice去了后面的门廊,用围裙掩面哭了起来。我们四个相对无语,过了一会儿我起来收拾残局。暴力男先来帮忙,然后是Harry和Dean。打扫得差不多干净,他们就走了。整个过程中谁也没说话,实在没什么好说的。
