The Ceremony!
The small group of boys quietly put the oars into their boats and walked into the oak orchard that would lead to an obscure hiding place where they would take an oath to become members of a secret organization. Most were the offspring of previous members whose obsessions were to have their children follow in their footsteps. The boys were therefore the optimum candidates; children of the rich who would be obedient to anyone who would make them richer.

As their leader passed them under an olive tree that was obstructing the entrance to a small opening, a strong odor reached all of their noses. It was a nutrient rich smell that still somehow oppressed them all. But the odor and the opaque speech by their leader that followed did nothing to offset the optimism all were feeling that what they were doing was right. This was an organization that they all wanted to be part of, no matter what.

Then an obscene ritual occurred which the boys would never forget. When it was over the boys were reminded that they were now all under an oath of silence and the few new members of the organization with a limited occupancy. It was too late to opt out. 

As a final act they all had to drink a drink that was certainly not good for one‘s nutrition. It tasted like blood. But they were all in now. And none of them would ever be the same again.

【译文】
入会仪式
一小群男孩悄悄地把桨放进小船并走进橡树园,橡树园通向一个偏僻的隐藏地点,他们要在那里宣誓成为一个秘密组织的成员。他们大部分是先前的成员的子女,那些成员都有一种无法摆脱的思想,那就是让他们的孩子步他们的后尘,因此这些男孩是最佳人选:他们都是富家子弟,谁能使他们更有钱,他们就服谁。

他们的首领在一棵橄榄树下面从他们面前走过,橄榄树把一个小洞的入口堵住了,一股奇怪的气味直冲他们的鼻子。那是一种很有营养的味道,不知怎的还是让他们有些烦恼,但是那种味道及随后首领发表的令人难以理解的讲话并没有抵消他们的乐观情绪,他们觉得他们做得对。无论如何,这是他们都想加入的组织。

然后就举行了男孩们永生难忘的可恶的仪式。仪式结束之后,男孩们被提醒他们现在已经发誓要保持安静,他们少数几个新成员居住的地方很小。现在决定退出已经太晚了。

他们要做的最后一件事是喝下一种东西,那东西肯定没有营养,喝起来像血,但现在他们都已经入会,他们谁也不会跟以前一样了。
