心锁 17


五一假期。柳镇。小雨。
一座灰色老宅外,小吉和安亚停住了脚步。
灰色的砖墙上,一个大红色的“拆"字特别扎眼。
大门把手上,一个小蜘蛛,正在辛勤地结网。
两个女孩对视了一眼。
“听我爸说,叔叔三年前就不住这儿了。我们从后面翻进去吧。"小吉建议。
安亚忐忑地同意了。于是,她们一前一后绕到老宅的背后。
没用多长时间,就互相帮着翻过了院墙,进入空旷的内院。

Lock of the Heart 17

Labor Day. Liu Town. It’s beginning to drizzle.

Outside a gray old house, Xiaoji and Anya stopped walking.

On its gray brick wall, a big scarlet Chinese character stood out and said “To be Dismantled”.

A small spider was weaving its web on the door knob diligently.

The two girls exchanged a look with each other.

“According to my Dad, my uncle moved out from here three years ago. Let’s climb in from the back.”

Anya hesitated a little and agreed.  Then the two of them turned around to the back of the house.

Without trying for too long, they helped each other to climbed over the wall and jumped into the inner courtyard.
