心锁 5


“后来呢?"女生们急着问。

“后来,"安亚继续说,"后来,爸爸在厨房的地窖里找到了妈妈。地窖门从外面锁死了,妈妈已经没有呼吸了。"

“是闷死的吗?"有人问。

“是。"

“好可怕!是谁干的呢?"又有人问。

“不知道。有人说是父亲干的,有人说是小偷干的。"

“那警察怎么说?"有人问。

“警察说是意外,就结案了。"安亚回答。

“不会吧!我看,很象是爸爸干的。妈妈不可能把自己反锁在里面啊!反正四岁的女儿也做不了证。"有个女生发表意见。

小吉认真地听她们交谈,却一句话也没说。

心鎖 5


“後來呢?"女生們急着問。

“後來,"安亞繼續說,"後來,爸爸在廚房的地窖裏找到了媽媽。地窖門從外面鎖死了,媽媽已經沒有呼吸了。"

“是悶死的嗎?"有人問。

“是。"

“好可怕!是誰幹的呢?"又有人問。

“不知道。有人說是父親乾的,有人說是小偷乾的。"

“那警察怎麼說?"有人問。

“警察說是意外,就結案了。"安亞回答。

“不會吧!我看,很象是爸爸乾的。媽媽不可能把自己反鎖在裏面啊!反正四歲的女兒也做不了證。"有個女生發表意見。

小吉認真地聽她們交談,卻一句話也沒說。

Lock of the Heart 5

“What happened after that?” One girl asked.

“Then,” Anya continued, “then father found his wife in the cellar. The cellar was locked from outside, she was already dead.”

“Did she died of no air?” Someone asked.

“Yes.”

“That’s really awful! Who did that?” Another one asked.

“No idea. Some people said it was the father, others said it could have been a burglar.”

“What did the police say then?” Asked a girl.

“The police said it was an accident and closed the case.” Anya answered.

“No way! In my opinion, the father was very suspicious. The mother couldn’t lock herself from outside! After all, a four-year-old little girl could not have been helpful in the case.” One girl expressed her speculation.

Xiaoji listened to their discussion without saying a word.
