心锁 35


为什么真相是这样无情?

空白的记忆,反复的恶梦,其实主角竟然是自己!

小吉记得爸爸有一个皮箱子,她好几次在深夜里,看到他坐在箱子旁,从里面拿出一卷一卷的画,认真地看过,又小心地放回。

关上箱子后,他会听着小提琴曲,点上一支烟,抽到很晚。

小吉知道箱子里是妈妈的画作,和爸爸的小提琴。

它们对于爸爸来说,象是有生命的东西。又象是一段人生,一段被封存起来的,精彩的人生。

爲什麼真相是這樣無情?

空白的記憶,反覆的惡夢,其實主角竟然是自己!

小吉記得爸爸有一個皮箱子,她好幾次在深夜裏,看到他坐在箱子旁,從裏面拿出一卷一卷的畫,認真地看過,又小心地放回。

關上箱子後,他會聽着小提琴曲,點上一支菸,抽到很晚。

小吉知道箱子裏是媽媽的畫作,和爸爸的小提琴。

它們對於爸爸來說,象是有生命的東西。又象是一段人生,一段被封存起來的,精彩的人生。

 

 

[English]

Lock of the Heart 35

Why truth has to be so merciless all the time?

Out of all the blank memories and endless nightmare, the main culprit was actually myself!

In Xiaoji’s memory, her Dad had a leather luggage. Many times in night, she saw him sitting beside the luggage, taking out scrolls of drawing one after another, studying them and carefully placing them back.

Had his luggage closed, he would light up a cigaret and listen to violin songs in the smoky air till very late.

Xiaoji knew that the things kept in the luggage were Mom’s drawing and Dad’s violin.

To Dad, they are things with lives. They are sealed as if they were part of Dad’s life, the part that had once shone so brightly in the past.
