233.Poor Rich Boy
233.男孩有钱却可怜
As Maurice sat in the waiting room of the doctor he was a little bit uncomfortable. His parents worked on Wall Street! That meant that he was used to being waited on hand and foot! Coming among people from every walk of life was not a common thing for Maurice. Today it was actually like a wake-up call and he was finally ready to listen!
莫里斯坐在医生的候诊室的时候,他觉得有点儿不舒服。他父母在华尔街工作!那意味着他习惯被无微不至地侍候!对莫里斯来说,来到各个行业的人中间是少有的事。今天实际上像是一个催醒电话,他终于要准备接听了!
Why did some people walk tall while others didn't even want to wake up? Just because his parents were rich and he had a lot of money? Well that took a lot of doing, sure, and he was certainly privileged. But did he walk on air because of his parents, because people waited on him?
为什么有些人昂首阔步,而其他人甚至都不想醒来?就是因为他的父母富有而他有很多钱吗?弄清楚这件事的确很困难,他当然享有特权。可他洋洋得意是因为父母、因为别人侍候他吗?
No! That couldn't be right, Maurice thought! There had to be something more to it! Or maybe he shouldn't be walking on air!
不是的!不可能是那样,莫里斯想!一定还有别的什么原因!或者他也许根本就不应该洋洋得意!
viewMaurice stood up and walked out of the room. Where he was wandering off to he didn't know, but he had to have some answers. At the very least he had to walk off his feet and shake his mood!
莫里斯起身离开了候诊室。他不知道自己正迷失向何方,但是他得有几个答案。至少他得拼命地走,改变一下自己的心情!
Luckily some walls have ears,and eyes in this case. Maurice's parents were able to catch him before he walked out of the building into the most violent neighborhood in the city!
幸运的是有时候隔墙有耳,这回是隔墙有眼。在他走出大楼、进人整个城市暴力最多的居民区时,莫里斯的父母想办法截住了他!
Thank goodness for a secure life, they thought! Maurice would never know! They just escorted him back to the doctor's office and then drove out of the security garage when it was over!
谢天谢地总算是安全了,他们想!莫里斯永远都不会知道!他们护送他回到了医生办公室,完了之后从安全车库开车走了!
