罪恶有痕 2

 

“我的车前面是一辆红色桑塔纳, 我跟车开了一段后它突然减速。我忙踩刹车。同时听见前面有撞车的声音。是桑塔纳追尾了, 它前面那辆被撞的商务车也停了下来。奇怪的是, 在桑塔纳的右道, 一辆白色轿车也同时停了下来. 本来就只有两条道, 这样交通就堵死了。

我停住车, 刚想下车看看, 抬头看见商务车上下来一个男的, 同时从白车里也下来一个男的。商务车的人指挥白车的人绕到桑塔纳驾驶员这边, 然后两人分别从衣服里掏出手枪, 拉开桑塔纳车的车门, 先后往车里开了几枪。我被吓到, 没敢下车, 低下头, 按电动钮把车窗拉起, 把车门反锁. 枪声停后, 我害怕他们过来找麻烦, 又壮着胆把头抬起来察看。这时, 那两个开枪的人已从桑塔纳车上拖出一个黑色的旅行包, 看起来很沉的样子。然后他们把包扔进白车, 一起开车跑掉了。”

做笔录的男人是刑警队长刘明天. 对于本市一个月来发生的第二起枪案, 他已感受到了来自多方的压力。桑塔纳车上的司机和乘客, 当时正带了大笔追来的欠款往回赶,准备回公司清点后交给财务。不料路遇劫匪,双双毙命。

Traces of Sin  2

“The car ahead of my car was a red Santana. I drove following it. But all of a sudden it slowed down. Then I had to step on my brake. At that moment, I also heard a big bang due to car crash. It was the Santana that drove into the backend of a van. The van also stopped. It was very strange that a white car travelling on the right lane of the Santana stopped too. After that, the traffic was totally jammed since there were only two lanes on that road.

I stopped my car, was about to step out and have a check when I saw a man got off the van. The man in the white car got out of his car too. The van man signalled the white car man to turn around and come to the driver’s side of the Santana. Each of them took out a pistol. They opened the door of the Santana, and fired a few shots to the inside of the car. I was terrified, scared of getting out of my car by that time. I lowered my head and pressed the electric buttons to slide up my windows and locked my doors. When the gunshots stopped, I was afraid that they might approach me next. So I bravely raised my head and peeked outside. By then, the two robbers had dragged out a big travel bag that seemingly very heavy. They threw it into the white car and drove away swiftly.”

The man taking the notes down was chief inspector Liu Mingtian. With the second local gun-related case in hand in one month, he could feel the pressure from everywhere. The driver and passenger in the doomed Santana were driving back with a big load of cash paid by their debtors, and were going to bring it back to their company. Unfortunately they encountered robbers and were both killed instantly.

    I didn’t want to be the first one to comment on your story…I see that you write with style, 恭喜 !
    Right now, I ‘m thoroughly reading chapter 1 because I have no other choice but to take my time. ( and as the saying goes, every little bit helps )

      Hi Jeff-Joseph,

      This story is written in the natural native way with consideration to avoid using complicated or too abstract expressions. Compared with the beginner to elementary level ones, stories at intermediate level and up are not “artificial” anymore. It’s written for natives as well. Let me know how difficult or easy you feel when you read it, thanks!
