罪恶有痕 42

 

“这个人是你用枪射杀的吧?”

一张被害人胸部中弹,脸色死灰的照片呈现在庄立群的眼前。白衬衣上已凝固成暗红色的大片血迹显得十分突兀。中年男死者睁着眼,令人颤栗的目光穿过相纸,直刺庄立群的面庞。

庄立群“呀”了一声,身体本能地向后躲避。

“他是死在你的枪下吧?知道吗?他死的时候女儿刚出生两天。如果这一切没有发生,他至少可以和女儿见上一面。”

庄立群把目光移向地板,一身冷汗。”求求你, 别让我看照片!”他心想。

刘明天观察着庄立群的表情变化,然后伸手把水杯送到他的面前。庄立群接过水杯,一仰头把水喝完。

“不知道你妹妹知道你做的事后会怎么想。”刘明天小声说。

“不要告诉她。”庄立群低声恳求。

刘明天镇静地回视着他。“我答应你。我会和你母亲商量如何回答你妹妹的问题。”

庄立群点头示谢。

罪惡有痕 42

 

“這個人是你用槍射殺的吧?”

一張被害人胸部中彈,臉色死灰的照片呈現在莊立羣的眼前。白襯衣上已凝固成暗紅色的大片血跡顯得十分突兀。中年男死者睜着眼,令人顫慄的目光穿過相紙,直刺莊立羣的面龐。

莊立羣“呀”了一聲,身體本能地向後躲避。

“他是死在你的槍下吧?知道嗎?他死的時候女兒剛出生兩天。如果這一切沒有發生,他至少可以和女兒見上一面。”

莊立羣把目光移向地板,一身冷汗。”求求你, 別讓我看照片!”他心想。

劉明天觀察着莊立羣的表情變化,然後伸手把水杯送到他的面前。莊立羣接過水杯,一仰頭把水喝完。

“不知道你妹妹知道你做的事後會怎麼想。”劉明天小聲說。

“不要告訴她。”莊立羣低聲懇求。

劉明天鎮靜地回視着他。“我答應你。我會和你母親商量如何回答你妹妹的問題。”

莊立羣點頭示謝。

 

[English translation]

Traces of Sin  42

 

“Is this the victim that shot by you?”

A photo of the victim with a face grimly pale and gun shot wounds on the chest appeared in front of Zhuang Liqun. The big blotch of dark red dried bloodstains stood out on his white shirt. The middle-aged male victim stared ghastly at Zhuang Liqun through the photo sheet.

Zhuang Liqun jumped his body backward with a startled cry.

“He died from your shooting, didn’t he? You know what, he just became a father to a new born daughter two days ago. If nothing happened, at least he could have seen her daughter once.”

In cold sweat, Zhuang Liqun moved away his eyes to the floor.”Please, don’t show me the photo again!” He begged in mind.

Liu Mingtian observed the changing face of Zhuang Liqun and passed on the glass of water to him. Zhuang Liqun received the glass and drank all water in one gulp.

“I don’t know what will come to your sister’s mind once she knew what you did.” Liu Mingtian murmured.

“Don’t tell her.” Zhuang Liqun pleaded in a low voice.

Liu Mingtian looked back at him calmly. “You have my promise. I will have a talk with your mother about that.”

Zhuang Liqun nodded lightly to say thank you.
