237.Succeed and Leave
237.激流勇退
When Jeremy returned from winter vacation he acted as if he could wipe the floor with anyone. He even stopped coming to orchestra where he played a wind instrument. When he said that he would have none of us for friends anymore I approached him!
过完寒假回来杰里米表现得好像可以打败任何人。他在管弦乐队演奏管乐器,这会儿他甚至都不来了。他说他不再接受我们做朋友,我跟他进行了一次谈话!
What happened to you? I asked. "You used to be our friend. Now you wind up coming home from winter break a different person!"
“发生什么事啦?”我问。“你曾经是我们的朋友。现在你寒假回来,结果变了一个人!”
He just smiled.
他只是笑了笑。
Wipe the smile off your face and tell me what happened!
“你别笑,告诉我发生了什么事!”
Why bother? he said. "You won't understand!" I frowned. "All right, I don't know whether or not it will matter, but here goes. I lived a wild life over winter break and discovered a will power that I never knew I had! It all happened while skiing. There were a bunch of hot shots that teased me the whole time. I challenged them to a race because I wanted to win a name for myself. They agreed and tons of people watched. I was terrified, but I raced. The other guy wiped out and I won by a neck! It turns out that all of his boasting was window dressing and I tore it down!"
“何必呢?”他说。“你不会理解的!”我皱起了眉头。“好吧,我不知道是否会有问题,可我还是说了吧。寒假期间我过着自由的生活,发现了一种毅力,我以前不知道我有这种毅力。一切都发生在滑雪的时候。一帮自命不凡的人一直在奚落我。因为想出名,我跟他们挑战进行一场比赛。他们同意了,许多人观看了我们的比赛。我很害怕,可我还是比了。另外那个家伙完蛋了,我以些微之差险胜!结果证明他吹的牛都是弄虚作假,我把真相大白于天下!”
viewJeremy stood proudly as he told the story.
讲述的时候杰里米骄傲地站着。
"It made me a different person. I felt wise immediately after the event! What was even better was that afterwards this beautiful girl came up to me and asked me if I wanted to go to coffee with her! I only answered 'White or black?' It was so cool!"
“这件事改变了我。我感觉我是事后聪明!更让人高兴的是事后这位漂亮姑娘走到我面前问我是否想跟她去喝咖啡!我只回答说要不要加点儿奶?真是太酷了。”
"Anyhow,now I'm a different person. I'm wide awake! And I don't want to hang out with you nerds anymore!"
“无论如何,我现在变了。我完全解了!我不想再和你们这帮蠢家伙鬼混了!”
Then he walked away. I just shook my head. Jeremy had become that which we all hated!
然后他就走了。我只是摇了摇头。杰里米变成了我们都不喜欢的那种人!
