第八章

 

「安德魯,你來了」「是的,英格麗表姊

 

懷特夫人一看到安德魯馬上迎了上來發問「畫畫學得怎樣?有見到那位畫家嗎?」「有的,那位畫家人很好,讓我在他身邊學了兩三個月,我的畫風大有進步,得到畫家讚賞呢!我想過不久我的畫便能掛在我朋友的畫廊讓人欣賞了」

 

「這真是太好了」

 

懷特夫人開心的說,這時莎拉也才知道安德魯沒和她們同來培頓莊園的原因,是因為這樣的原因。當初與懷特一家人要離開大宅子的時候,由於太行色匆匆,完全沒機會問問安德魯是否會一起來,如今聽到安德魯這番話,也才知道安德魯這幾個月也沒閒著,而是去學畫畫。

 

莎拉也替安德魯高興,畢竟畫畫是安德魯最在乎的事,如今能夠向有名的畫家求得正式的指導也不容易-並不是所有的畫家都願意收弟子的,她聽說有些畫家很古怪,特別愛拒絕登門求教的人。

 

好在安德魯原本畫畫就表現得頗為出色,想必他的作品得到畫家的青睞因而獲得指導。這時安德魯回頭看莎拉一眼,然後向懷特夫人說:「若表姊沒有要請伍德小姐做其他事,我想在晚餐前請伍德小姐為我彈奏一曲」懷特夫人讓他們到客廳去,自己隨後走到一邊的廚房。

 

莎拉和安德魯來到客廳,莎拉走到鋼琴前說:「你想聽什麼呢?安德魯」安德魯用一種很特別的神色說:「就彈奏你最喜歡的那首曲子吧!那首曲子我也很喜歡」莎拉很好奇安德魯怎麼知道她最喜歡什麼曲子,她喜歡的是一首德國作曲家的抒情曲,樂譜是放在她從小生長的蒙特莊園,有一日她在翻閱父親書房內的書無意間看到的,她便拿來練習,而今已成為她最喜歡也最愛的曲子。

 

莎拉一時興起,本想開安德魯一個玩笑,隨手彈起一首英國作曲家的曲子,安德魯眉頭一皺:「不是這首曲子」莎拉很訝異地在彈起另一首,安德魯又說:「也不是這一首」,第三度,莎拉談起她最喜歡的"微風交響曲",才一彈,安德魯就高興的說:「就是這一首了」

 

莎拉雖然很高興安德魯知道自己所喜愛的曲子,但她並沒有表現出那份受寵若驚,反而很專心地彈起曲子。安德魯在莎拉剛彈起這首曲子時便坐到一邊去,靜靜地欣賞流瀉在周遭的琴音。

 

莎拉邊彈曲子邊看安德魯,安德魯的樣子看來就像是他在畫畫那般專注,這神情是莎拉最喜歡的了,她很開心安德魯能專心欣賞她最喜愛彈奏的曲子-就像找到知音般,莎拉也專注在琴聲的世界。一曲奏畢,安德魯竟要求她再彈一次,回饋給知音的,就是美妙的琴聲了,安德魯還是一樣似乎很陶醉在琴聲當中,空氣裡彷彿凝結了一種完全沒有隔閡的共識,莎拉將所有的情感揮灑在琴鍵上,連安德魯都感受到莎拉對這支曲子的熱愛。

 

等莎拉彈奏完畢,他忍不住站起來鼓掌:「真的是彈奏得太好了莎拉」莎拉靦腆地站了起來,將琴蓋蓋上才說:「謝謝」

 

安德魯走近莎拉身邊「幾個月不見,你的琴藝越來越有味道,我真是想念你彈琴的樣子啊」安德魯這時竟忘情的將莎拉的手給握住,讓莎拉一時不知所措,安德魯這時忽然回神發現自己的失態,連忙自己的手抽回來「對不起,莎拉」莎拉紅著臉搖搖頭,然後問安德魯是否要聽別的曲子,安德魯只模模糊糊的說已經夠了,然後莎拉便紅著臉快步走出客廳。

 

幾乎小跑步跑上樓梯的莎拉臉紅得像個蘋果,心臟則幾乎像要跳出胸口般,她無法察覺自己此刻是怎樣的心情,只覺得如果繼續待在客廳的話,一定會做出什麼失態的事。而剛剛安德魯忘情地握住莎拉的手,似乎也令自己受到驚嚇,他完全無法理解自己怎麼會這麼莽撞,不僅失去該有的禮節,連自己的心臟也狂跳著一種奇異的感覺,那是一種說不出的快樂-安德魯很想要求莎拉繼續留下來,但臉紅成那樣的莎拉顯然是被他荒誕的舉止給嚇到。

 

是的,安德魯.格林終於清楚明白自己對莎拉.伍德的喜愛,自從跟莎拉熟識後,他知道自己終於找到想要相伴一生的對象-莎拉.伍德是如此完美無缺,永遠在略為害羞的臉上出現一種從容的態度,深受旁人讚賞。但他知道自己喜愛的是莎拉的聰明睿智,他可以毫無忌諱和莎拉聊起任何事情與事物的觀點,這是他在其他女孩身上看不到的-安德魯一直以來就知道自己想要的是什麼樣的伴侶,現在這樣的女孩終於出現了-不知道莎拉對他是怎樣的觀感,他不希望因為自己的魯莽而讓莎拉誤以為自己與其他魯莽男子無異,他希望自己能從莎拉那裏獲得良好的評價,不管是他所喜愛的畫畫或待人處世方面,他都希望自己能獲得莎拉的喜愛。

 

走到方才莎拉坐著的琴椅,安德魯坐了下來,剛才專注在彈琴的莎拉多可愛,可以聽得出她對自己喜愛的曲子下了多少功夫,就像他喜愛的畫畫一樣-安德魯這回來培頓莊園,本來最主要就是來見莎拉的,他離開她太久了,想念也很久了,但在不知道莎拉對他有任何觀感前,還是得小心自己的行為-安德魯翻開琴蓋,按了一個琴鍵,那單調高亢的音階迴盪在四周,彷彿為這對還未互相盡興理解的男女們,掀起一個未知的未來。

 Love in London

 

Chapter VIII

 

"Andrew, you're here" "Yes, Cousin Ingrid"

 

As soon as Mrs. White saw Andrew, she immediately greeted him and asked, "How are you doing?" and "Yes, the painter is very good, let me study with him for two or three months, my painting style has improved greatly, and I have been praised by the painter! I think it will not be long before my paintings will be hanging in my friend's gallery for people to admire."

 

"It's wonderful."

 

Mrs. White said happily that it was then that Sarah knew that the reason why Andrew had not come to Peyton Manor with them was because of this. When he and the White family were about to leave the mansion, they were in a hurry and didn't have the opportunity to ask Andrew if they would come together, and now when they heard Andrew's words, they also knew that Andrew had not been idle in the past few months, but went to learn to paint.

 

Sarah was also happy for Andrew, after all, painting was Andrew's most important thing, and it was not easy to ask famous painters for formal guidance these days - not all painters were willing to take disciples, and she had heard that some painters were very eccentric and especially fond of people who refused to come to him for advice.

 

Fortunately, Andrew was already quite good at drawing, and his work must have been favored by the painter and thus he was guided. Then Andrew glanced back at Sarah, and then said to Mrs. White, "If my cousin doesn't want to ask Miss Wood to do anything else, I'd like to ask Miss Wood to play a song for me before dinner." Mrs. White told them to go to the drawing-room, and then went to the side of the kitchen.

 

Sarah and Andrew came to the living room, and Sarah went to the piano and said, "What do you want to hear? Andrew" Andrew said with a very special look, "Just play your favorite tune, and I like that tune too." Sarah wondered how Andrew knew what she liked best, and what she liked was a lyric by a German composer, and the score was placed in Monte Manor, where she grew up, and one day she stumbled across a book in her father's study, and she practiced it, and it has become her favorite and favorite song.

 

On a whim, Sarah wanted to make a joke about Andrew, and casually played a piece by an English composer, Andrew frowned: "It's not this one" Sarah was surprised to play another one, Andrew said, "It's not this one", the third time, Sarah talked about her favorite "Breeze Symphony", just as soon as she played, Andrew happily said, "This is it"

 

Sarah was glad that Andrew knew what she loved, but instead of showing that flattery, she concentrated on playing the tune. Andrew sat down as Sarah first started playing the piece, quietly admiring the sound of the piano around him.

 

Sarah looked at Andrew as she played the tune, and Andrew looked as if he was drawing, which Sarah liked the most, and she was glad that Andrew could concentrate on her favorite piece to play - just like finding a soulmate, Sarah was also focused on the world of the piano. After the song was played, Andrew asked her to play it again, and what was given back to the bosom friend was the beautiful sound of the piano, Andrew still seemed to be very intoxicated by the sound of the piano, and the air seemed to condense a consensus that there was no barrier at all, Sarah sprinkled all her emotions on the keys, and even Andrew felt Sarah's love for this piece.

 

When Sarah finished playing, he couldn't help but stand up and applaud: "It's really good Sarah" Sarah stood up shyly and closed the lid before saying, "Thank you"

 

Andrew approached Sarah's side for a few months, your piano skills are getting more and more flavorful, I really miss the way you play the piano Andrew actually forgot to hold Sarah's hand at this time, so that Sarah was at a loss for a while, Andrew suddenly came back to his senses and found his gaffe, and quickly withdrew his hand "I'm sorry, Sarah" Sarah blushed and shook her head, and then asked Andrew if he wanted to listen to other tunes, Andrew only vaguely said that it was enough, and then Sarah walked out of the living room blushing blushing.

 

Sarah, who was almost trotting up the stairs, blushed like an apple and her heart almost jumped out of her chest, she couldn't detect what she was feeling at the moment, only that she would do something out of her way if she continued to stay in the living room. And just now Andrew held Sarah's hand mercilessly, and seemed to be frightened by himself, he couldn't understand how he could be so reckless, not only lost the etiquette he should have, but even his heart beat wildly with a strange feeling, it was an indescribable joy - Andrew wanted to ask Sarah to stay, but Sarah, who blushed like that, was obviously frightened by his absurd behavior.

 

Yes, Andrew.Green finally understood his love for Sarah.Wood, and since he became acquainted with Sarah, he knew that he had finally found the person he wanted to be with for the rest of his life – Sarah.Wood was so flawless, always showing a calm attitude on his slightly shy face, which was appreciated by others. But he knows that what he likes is Sarah's intelligence, and he can talk to Sarah about anything and everything without any taboo, which he doesn't see in other girls - Andrew has always known what kind of partner he wants, and now such a girl has finally appeared - I don't know what Sarah thinks of him, he doesn't want to make Sarah think that he is no different from other reckless men because of his recklessness, he hopes that he can get a good evaluation from Sarah, whether it is his favorite painting or dealing with people, he wants to be loved by Sarah。

 

Walking to the chair where Sarah was sitting, Andrew sat down, Sarah, who was focused on playing the piano just now, was so cute that he could hear how much effort she put into her favorite tunes, just like he loved to paint- Andrew came back to Peyton Manor, originally the main thing was to see Sarah, he had been away from her for too long, and he had missed her for a long time, but before he knew that Sarah had any opinion of him, he still had to be careful about his behavior - Andrew opened the lid and pressed a key, and the monotonous high-pitched scale echoed around, as if to set off an unknown future for the men and women who had not yet fully understood each other

 

To be continued ~ (107.9..26)



因為用中文創作,再翻譯為英文,所以英文上的正確用詞無法翻譯出來,夫人可以意指"你的淑女身分"(代表的是當代的一種地位稱呼),公爵大人,伯爵大人,男爵大人等,小說中都有出現,抱歉,因為請Google翻譯翻譯的,而本人沒有從事過英文寫作,只想嘗試用英文表達整部小說的內容,敬請原諒!!謝謝!!

 

Because it is created in Chinese and then translated into English, the correct words in English cannot be translated, Madame can mean "your lady" (representing a contemporary status title), Lord Duke, Lord Earl, Lord Baron, etc., all appear in the novel, sorry, because I asked Google Translate to translate, and I have not been engaged in English writing, I just want to try to express the content of the whole novel in English, please forgive me!! Thank you!!

本小說創作如有雷同,純屬巧合,而小說寫作的年代約略定在與作家珍.奧斯汀同一年代

 

It is a coincidence that the novel was written in the same era as the writer Jane Austen
