罪恶有痕 26

 

庄立群看着镜中的自己,满意地点了点头,在假发和假胡须的掩饰下,他自己都快认不出自己了。他现在这番打扮倒让他想起了一个人,他的父亲。

父亲因经济问题进监狱的时候,他只有十六岁。之后妈妈把他接到自己家,但他坚决不想上学了。他说他要工作,要独立生活,对上学毫无兴趣。无奈,老钟帮他找了一个车辆维修的培训班。他学了三个月,然后就在一个私人店里做学徒,后来就在那个店里修了四年车。在第四年里,修车时认识了一个来修车的男顾客。

此人和他一拍即合,他们都喜欢探险运动。于是,那个人带他加入了漂流俱乐部. 在俱乐部里,他认识了一些比较富裕的漂友。他们开着漂亮的跑车来参加漂流探险。他们中的相当一部分人并不把俱乐部高昂的会费当回事。他们有时间就来,没时间则很久见不上面。漂流对于他们来说只是生活中的一个消遣.

罪惡有痕 26

 

莊立群看著鏡中的自己,滿意地點了點頭,在假發和假胡須的掩飾下,他自己都快認不出自己了。他現在這番打扮倒讓他想起了一個人,他的父親。

父親因經濟問題進監獄的時候,他只有十六歲。之後媽媽把他接到自己家,但他堅決不想上學了。他說他要工作,要獨立生活,對上學毫無興趣。無奈,老鍾幫他找了一個車輛維修的培訓班。他學了叁個月,然後就在一個私人店裏做學徒,後來就在那個店裏修了四年車。在第四年裏,修車時認識了一個來修車的男顧客。

此人和他一拍即合,他們都喜歡探險運動。於是,那個人帶他加入了漂流俱樂部. 在俱樂部裏,他認識了一些比較富裕的漂友。他們開著漂亮的跑車來參加漂流探險。他們中的相當一部分人並不把俱樂部高昂的會費當回事。他們有時間就來,沒時間則很久見不上面。漂流對於他們來說只是生活中的一個消遣.

 

[English translation]

Traces of Sin  26

Looking at his image in the mirror, Zhuang Liqun nodded in satisfaction. Under the disguise of wig and beard, he hardly can recognize his own face. The look he’s bearing now reminded him of another person, his Dad.

He was only sixteen when his Dad was put into prison due to financial crimes. Thereafter, his Mom took him to her own family. However, he refused to go to school. He said he wanted to work and live independently instead of studying at school. With no other choice, Lao Zhong helped him to find a training school for car maintenance. He studied for three months and then became a apprentice in a private body shop. Thereafter he did car maintenance for four years in that shop. During the four years he spent there, he became acquainted with a customer.

That gentleman clicked together with him. They both loved adventure sports. Therefore, he was led by that man to join a rafting club. In the club, he got to know some rich people. They drove to the adventure revenue in shining sporty cars. A big portion of club members didn’t give it a second thought on the expensive club fee. They came when they had time. They disappeared for a time when they don’t. Rafting was just a small recreational activity in their life.
