英语故事 英语鬼故事:可怕的东西(双语)

A couple of friends and I were hangin’ out one day and we found an Ouija board in one of their basements. It was really nice, not one of those mass produced plastic things, it was made of wood and had intricate carvings all around its base, like moons and stars and other cosmic stuff, I don’t really remember it that well except they were very detailed and looked hand carved. We didn’t think much of it at the time because we were black widow hunting (not one of our smarter ideas, but it was a rush when we found one). I’d also like to say that we don’t drink, do drugs, or anything that would mess with your mind like that. Day turned to night and we had given up our hunt and started playing X-Box. We got bored shortly after. So one of my friends decided to go the board.
一天我和几个朋友玩的时候,在地下室里发现了一块显灵板。那东西很不错,不是那种批量生产的塑胶品,这块显灵板是木制的,底座上布满很精细的雕刻图案,好象是月亮星星之类的宇宙中存在的东西,图案我记得不是很清楚了,但我记得那些图案看起来像是手雕的,非常精细。我们当时并没对它太在意,因为正忙着抓黑寡妇蜘蛛。(虽然不是什么好主意,但当我们真的抓住一只的时候,大家都很兴奋。)我想说的是我们没喝酒也没吸毒,没参与任何会让头脑混乱的事情。天黑了,我们便不再抓蜘蛛,开始玩X盒子的游戏,但没玩一会儿,我们就厌倦了。于是,一位朋友提议玩通灵板。

When he brought it back I swear it had grown at least a foot in all directions from the last time I saw it (not important, it just intrigued me). Anyway we went on to ask it stuff and nothing happened, so my other friend went to his computer and looked up some ancient druid chant to open some vortex thing.
当他把通灵板拿来的时候,我确信它比我刚才看到时面积至少大了一平方英尺(不过没什么大不了的,这倒正好激发我的兴趣)。我们开始对着它提问但什么都没发生。于是,我的另一位朋友便去用他的电脑查了一些能把灵异之物开启的咒语。

I don’t know the specifics; no one else went with him. All he did was print out what we were supposed to say, it was mostly just weird word combinations and a few summoning phrases I can’t remember. This was almost a year ago, I do remember feeling pretty silly going through with it. This I remember clearly though, the same friend who got the paper all of a sudden asks for it to give us a sign. Of all the stupid things to do… well I was very upset with him, but he defended himself by saying that’s what the site told him to do. As it turns out it said not to ask for a sign or anything else like that. It even put it in all caps and bolded, too.
我不知道具体细节,他是一个人去的,他只是把我们需要说的话都打印了出来。不过是些诡异的字眼的组合以及一些召唤用语。具体内容我不记得了。这事发生在大约一年前,我只记得当时看那张纸时觉得真是傻极了。我还清楚地记得那个去打印那张纸的朋友突然说让通灵板给他一个暗示,真是奇傻无比,我被他弄得心烦意乱的,但他辩解说网站上就是这样说的。后来事实证明,网站上写的是千万不能向通灵板要什么暗示之类的东西,这警告还是用大写字母,用黑体字特意标出的。

Well after that he was pretty embarrassed, but nothing happened for about a half hour. So we just gave up ghosts for the night (our attention spans couldn’t handle nothing happening for that long). Later we got back on the X-Box and started playing, I think it was Halo when we heard my friend’s parents get home, it was about 9 pm, about an hour early. So he decided to go into the garage and jump out when they got out of the car. Well he waited about 10 minutes just sitting there before he decided to look out a window and no one was there. While he was looking he heard about two inches from his ear someone smacking their lips like they had dry mouth and were preparing to speak. When he spun around there was no one there, which is about when he came walking back to the basement at a very brisk pace.
然后,他尴尬极了,半个小时过去了,还是什么都没发生。于是我们便放弃了在那晚见到鬼魂的念头(我们的注意力可没办法忍受那么长时间的无事发生)。我们就又玩起了X盒子。大约九点的时候,我们听到一个朋友的父母回来了,比预期的时间早了一个小时。于是,他藏在车库里,打算等他们下车的时候跳出来吓吓他们。他在车库里坐了大约10分钟,还没等到父母,便探头向窗外望去,但外边根本没人。忽然他听到在他耳边大概两英寸的地方,有人在吧唧着嘴,像是说话前要润润嘴巴似的。他猛地转过身,却没看到人,他吓得赶紧以最快的速度跑回地下室。

While we were down there we heard a number of doors slamming and knocks over our head like someone was kneeling and punching the floor over and over. Which doesn’t sound that scary, but it was the most frightening experience of my life. Then some guy started screaming bloody murder down the hall from us in the basement. When I looked down the hall I saw what looked like a transparent hunchback limping toward us. The way he was moving was not like a normal person would, it was like a glitching computer; he would "jump" forward, backward or to a side, then back to his normal place again. It was just strange. After this I ran faster than my legs could take me out of his house, forgetting my friends until I stopped across the street and noticed they were right behind me. I guess they didn’t see the guy, but when they saw me running they felt like they were snapped out of a trance.
而我们在地下室听到头顶上方传来一阵阵的摔门敲门声,像是有人跪在地板上,不停捶着地板似的。声音其实并不可怕,但那也算是我一生中最可怕的经历了。忽然我们地下室里传来声声“杀人啦!”的尖叫。我向下看,看到一个驼背的跛子向我们走来。他走的样子不像是个正常人,像个短路的电脑似的,他“跳着”向前、退后、或是向侧面走,然后又退回到之前站的位置。这真的太奇怪了。见此情景,我撒腿就跑,都把朋友们忘在脑后了,等到我跑出房子,在对面街上停住脚步时,才发现他们都跟在我身后跑出了房子。我猜他们并没有看到那人,只是我一跑就让他们也顿时茅塞顿开。

After that nothing major happened in his house and I was only in his basement long enough to move the TV and X-Box upstairs. It might have been the chant but I am almost sure it was his invitation that provoked it.
之后,我朋友的房子里再没发生什么大事,我便抓紧时间把电视机和X盒子搬到楼上。有可能是咒语把那个鬼魂召唤出来的,但我想应是该他的邀请。
