Chapter 5 An Important Visitor

5 一位重要的来访者
I did not want Merrick to live by himself, like a man in a lighthouse. He read his books, and talked to me, but I wanted him to talk to more people. And I wanted him to talk to women.
我不愿麦里克独自居住,就像一个灯塔守望人那样。他看书,也和我聊天,但我却想让他与更多的人甚至妇女们交谈。
Merrick read about women in his books, but he did not often talk to women. He met the nurses every day, but they did not talk to him very much. For them, he was always a creature, not a man.
麦里克在书中读到过有关妇女的事,可他不常与妇女们说话。他每天都与护士接触,可她们不常与他说话,在她们的眼里,他始终是一个怪物而不是一个男人。
One day, one of my friends, a beautiful young woman, came to the hospital. I told her about Merrick, and took her to his room. She opened the door, and smiled at him. 'Good morning, Mr Merrick, 'she said. Then she shook his hand.
有一天,我的一位朋友,一位年轻漂亮的女子来到了医院,我告诉她有关麦里克的全部情况,并把她领到他的房间。她朝他微笑着问候:“早上好,麦里克先生。”她走上前握住他的手。
Merrick looked at her for a minute with his mouth open. Then he sat down on his bed, with his head in his hand, and cried. He cried for nearly five minutes. The tears ran down his face, between his fingers, and onto the floor.
麦里克张着嘴朝她看着,然后坐到床上捂着头哭了起来。他哭了近五分钟时间,泪水从指缝里滚落到地上。
My friend sat on the bed beside him and put her hand on his arm. She said nothing, but she smiled at him and shookhis hand again before she left.
我的这位朋友靠近他坐在他的床上,把手放在他的手臂上,什么也没说,只是朝他微笑,离开前又与他握手道别。

'Dr Treves, 'he said to me that night. 'That lady was wonderful! My mother smiled at me once, many years ago, but no women smile at me now. But this lady smiled at me too, and she shook my hand! A beautiful lady smiled at me and shook my hand! '

那天晚上他对我说:“特里维斯博士,那位女士漂亮极了,我的母亲曾经朝我微笑过,那是很多年以前的事了。直到现在没有一个女人朝我笑过,可是这位女士朝我微笑,还握了我的手!一个漂亮的女士朝我微笑,握着我的手!”
My young lady friend came again the next week, and talked to Merrick for half an hour. The week after that, she came again with a friend. They gave him some books, and had a cup of tea with him. It was wonderful for him. For the first time in his life, he had some friends. He was a very happy man. He sat in his room, and read his books, and said no more about living on a lighthouse.
第二个星期,我的那位年轻的朋友又来了,与麦里克谈了半个小时。在这个星期以后她又与另一个朋友一道来,她们送给他一些书,和他一起喝了茶。对他来说这比什么都好,人生中第一次有了一些朋友。他很高兴,坐在屋子里看书,再也不提诸如生活在灯塔里之类的事了。
People began to read about Merrick in the newspapers, sohe had a lot of visitors. Everybody wanted to see him. A lot of important ladies and gentlemen visited him. They smiled at him, shook his hand, and gave him books. Merrick liked talk-ing to these people, and he began to forget about his uglybody. His visitors never laughed at him. He began to feel like a man, not a creature.
人们开始从报纸上看到有关麦里克的报道,所以他有许多来访者。每个人都想去看他,许多有身份的女士和绅士们访问了他,他们朝他微笑,和他握手,送给他许多书。麦里克喜欢与这些人交谈,渐渐忘了自己那丑陋的样子。他的来访者从不嘲笑他,他开始觉得自己像个男人了。
