孙方友《女票》英译

女票

孙方友

他灵巧地玩弄着一枝枪。玩够后,掏出一粒花生米大小的子弹,在口里含了含,对着阳光照了照,然后又在掌心中撂了个高又稳稳地接住,说:这回就要看你的运气了!

他说着看了一眼那女人—正赶一阵小风掠过,女人丰腴的胸高耸如峰,旗袍被轻轻撩起,裸露出细细嫩嫩的大腿。白色的光像是烫了他的双目,他禁不住打了个愣,觉得周身有火蹿出。

头儿正在想好事儿吧?芦苇荡的深处传来了淫荡的呼啸声。

女人看到他那刚毅的嘴角儿被面颊的颤动牵了一下,那张年轻的脸顿时变形。他终于举起了那枝枪。那枝枪的弹槽像个小圆滚儿,如蜂巢,能装六粒子弹,弹槽滚儿可以倒转,往前需要扣动扳机。她看到他把那颗子弹装进了弹槽,“哗哗”地倒转了几圈儿,然后对她说:这要看你的命了!这里面只有一颗子弹,如果你命大,赶上了空枪,我就娶你为妻。他又说。

她望着他,目光里透出轻蔑。

你知道,土匪是不绑女票的!女票不顶钱!有钱人玩女人如玩纸牌,决不会用重金赎你们的。他说着举起了枪,突然又放了下去,接着说:让你死个明白,我们绑你丈夫,没想弟兄们错绑了你。我们不是花匪,留不得女人扰人心。不过,若是我要娶你为妻,没人敢动的。但我又不想娶你这个有钱人的三姨太,所以这一切要由天来定了!说完,他又旋转了几下弹槽滚儿,才缓缓举起了枪。

女人悠然地闭了双目。

那时刻湖心的岛坡上就很静,一只水鸟落在女人脚下,摇头晃脑地抖羽毛。芦苇丛里藏满了饥饿的眼睛,正朝这方窥视。

他一咬牙,扣动了扳机。

是空枪!

求你再打一枪!她望着他说。

他摇了摇头,走过去说:我说过了,只打一枪。你赶上了空枪,说明你命大,也说明咱俩有缘分。

她冷笑了一声,说:你想得很美呀!

你想怎么样?他奇怪地问。

我想死死不了,也想认命。她望了他一眼,松动了一下臂膀,拢了拢乱发回答。

怎么个认法?

我也打你一枪!

他怔了,不相信地望着她,好一时,突然仰天大笑,说:够味儿,真他妈够味儿!怪不得陈佑衡那老儿喜欢你!我今日算是等到了对手,就是栽了也值得!他说完便把枪撂给了她,然后又掏出了一粒“花生米”。

她接过那粒子弹,装进了弹槽儿,然后,熟练地把弹槽滚儿旋转了几圈儿,对着他走了过去。

她举起了枪,姿态优美。

他吃惊地张大了嘴巴。

大哥,听说这女人可是枪法如神呀!苇丛中的人齐声喊——声音里充满了担心和惊悸。

她笑了笑,又转了一回弹槽滚儿,对他说:如果是空枪,俺就依你!说完,重新举起了小左轮。她的手有点儿抖,瞄了许久,突然,颓丧地放了枪,好一时才说:俺不认命了,只求你从今以后别再当匪,好生与俺过日子!

他愕然,呆呆地望她,像是在编织着一个梦幻。

你命不好,我愿意跟你受罪。她不知为什么眼里就闪出了泪花儿。

他疑惑地走过去,接过那枪一看,惊呆如痴。

俺转了两次,可那子弹仍是对着枪管的!她哭着说。那时候,俺真想打死你,可一想你命这般苦,就有点儿可怜你了。你不知道,俺也是个苦命的人啊!

他愤怒地扣动了扳机,枪声划破了寂静,苇湖内一片轰响。

他颓丧地垂下了手枪,对她说:好,我听你的,带你去过穷日子!

四周一片骚动,无数条汉子从芦苇中跑出来,跪在了他的面前,齐声呼叫:头儿,您不能走呀!

今日能得鲍娘,也是我马方的造化!他平静地说:弟兄们,忘了我吧!

有人带头掏钱,他和她的面前一片辉煌。他望着那片辉煌,跪下去作了个圆揖,哽咽道:弟兄们的恩德我永世不忘,但这钱都是你们用命换来的,我马方一文不带!说完,他掏出那把左轮,恭敬地放在了地上。她走过去架起他,然后拾起那把左轮,说:你当过匪首,说不定迟早会出什么事,带上它也好做个防身!

他哭了。

二人下了山。

A Woman Hostage

He kept playing with the revolver, skillfully. When he had had enough, he drew out a bullet the size of a peanut. After putting it in his mouth for a second, he glanced at it in the bright sun, then threw it up into the air and caught if firmly.

“It will depend on your luck,” he said as he looked at that woman with hill-like breasts, at the moment when a breeze swept across her, blowing up her qipao dress and exposing her sexy thighs. The white light seemed to have burned his eyes. He stayed stunned for a moment, feeling fire burning all over this body.

“Isn’t our boss thinking of fun?” Out came lewd whistles from the depth of the reed marshes.

The woman saw the stubborn corner of his mouth pulled up by the quivering on his face, deforming his young face momentarily. He raised his revolver, whose magazine looked like a small wheel, or a beehive, that could hold six bullets. The magazine could turn freely counter-clockwise, but when the trigger was squeezed it could also rotate clockwise. She saw him loading it with that bullet. After that he turned it counter-clockwise several times, saying, “It depends on your luck. It’s only loaded with one bullet. If the chamber happens to be empty, I will take you as my wife.”

She stared at him in contempt.

“You know, we bandits don’t kidnap women. Women are not worth much. Rich men play with women like playing cards and will never pay a big ransom for you.” He raised his gun as he spoke, but suddenly he put it down again, adding, “I’ll let you know this before you die. We wanted to kidnap your husband, but my brothers got you by mistake. We aren’t lustful bandits and will not keep a woman to bother us. However, if I take you as my wife, nobody will bother you. But I don’t really want to marry a rich man’s third mistress, either. So heaven will decide everything for us.” With this, he rotated the magazines a few more times before he slowly raised his gun.

The woman closed her eyes calmly.

The slope of the island in the middle of the lake was quiet. Only a water bird that had landed beneath the woman’s feet was shaking its head and fluffing its feathers. The hungry eyes hidden throughout the reeds were fixed at this spot.

Gritting his teeth, he fired his gun.

Nothing happened!

“I beg you to fire another shot,” she said after she opened her eyes at him.

He shook his head. “No, I said I would fire only one shot,” he said as he walked over to her. “It happened to be empty. That means you are lucky, and it also means we are meant for each other.”

“Isn’t it too good for you?” she smiled bitterly.

“What do you want then?” he asked, surprised.

“I wanted death, but didn’t die. I want fate to decide for me, too,” she answered as she glanced at him, gently shrugging her shoulders and combing her messy hair with her fingers.

“How?”

“I’ll fire one shot at you, too!”

He was stupefied, staring at her unbelievingly for quite a while. Then he burst out laughing, “Awesome! It’s damned awesome! No wonder that old guy Chen Youheng liked you! I have finally met a real match. It’s worth it even if I die.” With this he gave her his gun, drawing out another “peanut.”

Upon receiving the bullet she pushed it into the magazine and rotated it expertly before walking toward him.

She raised her gun, with a graceful posture.

He was shocked, his mouth wide open.

“Big Brother, we hear she is an expert shooter!” shouted the people in the reeds in chorus, their voices filled with worry and fear.

Smiling, she rotated the magazine again and said, “If there’s no shot, I’ll be your wife.” With this she raised the small revolver again. Her hand a little shaky, she aimed at him for a long time, but suddenly put down her gun in dejection. “I won’t accept what fate decides anymore,” she finally said. “I only beg you not to be a bandit anymore and to start a new life with me.”

He was stunned, staring at her blankly as if making up a dream.
“You were born with a bad life, but I’m willing to be your wife and suffer with you,” she said, tears mysteriously welling up in her eyes.

Perplexed, he walked over, picked up his gun for a look, and was dumbfounded.

“I rotated it two times, but each time the bullet landed at the breech,” she cried. “At that moment, I really wanted to kill you, but when I thought of your miserable life, I felt a little sorry for you. You don’t know, but I also have had a bad life.”

Out of rage, he fired his gun. The shot broke the silence with a clap of thunder inside the Reeds Lake.

Dejected, he lowered his revolver, saying to her, “All right then. I will listen to you. I will take you out of here and start a poor life with you.”

Deafening shouts were heard from all directions. Out came numerous men, who knelt in front of him, begging in one voice, “Boss, you can’t go.”

“It’s a blessing for me, Ma Fang, that I’ve got Bao Niang today,” he said calmly. “Brothers, forget about me!”

Some began to reach into their pockets for a donation for him. Before the new couple was a patch of radiance. Looking at the radiance, Ma Fang knelt down to bow with one hand clutching the other and said, chokingly, “I’ll never forget your kindness, brothers, but you risked your life for every dollar you’ve got. I won’t accept one single penny.” With this he respectfully drew out the revolver and placed it on the ground.

She walked over to help him to his feet. Then she picked up the revolver, saying, “You have been a chieftain. You may get into trouble, so you’d better keep it for self-defense, just in case.”
He started crying.

They both went down the mountains.
