罪恶有痕 16

 

刘明天他们走后,罗元又回到水边取样。老闻则回到办公室,开了他的小播放机,继续听他最喜欢的京剧。

天色渐晚,老闻看了看播放机上的时间,收拾收拾东西,拎着包到水边跟罗元打了个招呼就回家去了。

水库里只剩下罗元了。他丢下取水样的箱子,沿着水边不紧不慢地走起来。

异常安静的水和沙滩, 还有周围的矮树林, 在警察来过后, 都变了味道. 它们不象平时那样让罗元感到身心放松, 正相反, 它们的沉默给罗元带来的是不一种不安, 一种难以名状的不安.

“水库的门开不开,跟抢劫案会有什么关系呢?这些警察真是脑子进水。这里面树都很矮,稀稀疏疏的,猫都藏不了,还能藏人?”罗元在心里嘀咕。”虽然没跟警察说实话,也不会有多大的后果吧。我天天在这里上班,没啥不对的呀。。。”

一只绿皮青蛙挡住了罗元的路,罗元对青蛙做了个鬼脸,然后用力在青蛙面前跺了一脚。青蛙飞快地逃开了。看青蛙逃命的样子,罗元呵呵一笑。与此同时,手机声响起,罗元忙把手机从腰间摸出 。

[English translation]

Traces of Sin  16

After Liu and Zhao left, Luo Yuan came back to the water side to continue taking water samples. Lao Wen went back to the office and turned on his audio player to listen to his favorite Beijing Opera.

The night was approaching. Lao Wen checked the time on the audio player. Then he wrapped up his stuff, carried his suitcase, went back to the water side, said goodbye to Luo Yuan and left.

By then, Luo Yuan was the person left in the reservoir. He left his sample box and strolled along the water bank.

The quiet water and the sand shore, also the ravine around, they all looked different after the visit of the police. They can’t offer the relaxing atmosphere to Luo Yuan like before. On the contrary, their silence made Luo Yuan to feel uneasy and fidgeting.

“Whether the gates of the reservoir were opened or not – what could that has anything to do with the robbery? These police must have had their head stuffed. With trees so short and sparse, even a cat can’t hide here, how could a human being do that?” Luo Yuan questioned in his mind. “Although I didn’t tell the truth to the police, I don’t think anything bad could come out of it. I work here everyday, things look just normal everywhere. ”

A green frog blocked Luo Yuan’s way. He made a face to the frog and then stomp heavily in front of it. The flog escaped in a flash. Looking at the hopping-away frog, Luo Yuan chuckled. At that moment, a phone ring came. He then quickly fished out his cell phone.
