罪恶有痕 24

 

“我难说过段时间要去外地,来不了你们这儿。”儿子的这句话突然地回现在文素云的脑海。难道 。。。文素云不敢再往下想。离婚后心里一直藏着的对儿子的欠疚, 此时这种欠疚一股脑翻腾起来。不管儿子做了什么,她都要尽全力帮他。她也一直相信,立群不是一个坏孩子。他虽然有过十分激烈的叛逆期,但那早已过去了。抢劫杀人?!这绝对不可能!

那一整天,文素云都处于一种魂不守舍的状态,直到晚上一个电话打进来的时候。。。

“妈,是我。”

“呀,是立群吗?你总算打来电话了!你这是去哪儿了呀?今天两个警察来找我,问你的情况呢!”

“妈,我很好,你不用惦记,我想出来做点生意。我还急着赶路,不跟你多说了。你一定保重!”

“唉等等,立群,别挂!”

电话就这样匆匆挂断了。文素云失神地放下话筒。听到儿子报平安,她有了些许欣慰,但这种欣慰很快就被更重的愁云所取代。

罪惡有痕 24

 

“我難說過段時間要去外地,來不了你們這兒。”兒子的這句話突然地回現在文素雲的腦海。難道 。。。文素雲不敢再往下想。離婚後心裏一直藏著的對兒子的欠疚, 此時這種欠疚一股腦翻騰起來。不管兒子做了什麼,她都要盡全力幫他。她也一直相信,立群不是一個壞孩子。他雖然有過十分激烈的叛逆期,但那早已過去了。搶劫殺人?!這絕對不可能!

那一整天,文素雲都處於一種魂不守舍的狀態,直到晚上一個電話打進來的時候。。。

“媽,是我。”

“呀,是立群嗎?你總算打來電話了!你這是去哪兒了呀?今天兩個警察來找我,問你的情況呢!”

“媽,我很好,你不用惦記,我想出來做點生意。我還急著趕路,不跟你多說了。你一定保重!”

“唉等等,立群,別掛!”

電話就這樣匆匆掛斷了。文素雲失神地放下話筒。聽到兒子報平安,她有了些許欣慰,但這種欣慰很快就被更重的愁雲所取代。

 

[English translation]

Traces of Sin  24

“It is possible that I’ll be out somewhere soon, can’t visit you for a sometime.” That words of her son suddenly struck her mind. Could it be true that … Wen Suyun dared not to continue the thoughts. The guilt for her son that she had been hiding in her mind after the divorce started to boil now. No matter what her son had done, she was determined to help him regardless. She had belief in that her son was not a bad boy. He had had tough teenager time, but that was long gone. Robbery and murder?! That was beyond imagination!

That whole day, Wen Suyun’s mind was somewhere else until she received a phone call in the evening …

“Mom, it’s me.”

“Is it you Liqun? You finally call back! Where have you been? There were two policemen approached me today for you!”

“Mom, I’m fine, don’t worry. I want to come out and do some business. I’m in a hurry, can’t chat for long. You take care!”

“No wait, Liqun, don’t hang up yet!”

That was the end of the call. Wen Suyun put down the phone in a heavy mood. She was a bit comforted upon hearing his son’s voice. However, that ease of mind was replaced by more worries soon.
