ALL IN THE FAMILY 《家庭全纪》
by Brian Warner
He Hoped the tape recorder would still work. It was one of those small portable ones often used in schools or libraries. Teddy didn't even realize the irony of his action - Angie was in fact the one who bought it for him. He wiped the hair and blood off the corner and released a sigh of frustration. "Mother will probably ground me from the television," he considered, looking to the mess he had made.
"Damn her. Damn them all. Why did she have to hurt Peg? Why?"Balefully, he kicked corpse beside him. Her glazed eyes stared back at him with empty fascination. "You bitch. You killed Peg."
His sister's dead look gave no response. (He wondered why.)Her face looked so shadowed. He lifted her head up by her clotted hair and saw that it was dried blood on her cheek that created the mock shadow. He saw, too, that the dent in her skull had stopped gushing; the coagulated blood had formed a gelatinous plug.
Mother would be home soon. He would have to dig a grave.
Teddy got up and walked to his bedroom where Peg's plastic body lay deflated. Atop her bloodless chest was a kitchen knife and she stared at the ceiling with her permanent expression - mouth in the shape of an O. She looked as if she would scream.
He picked up the doll's head and looked tearfully at the flat terrain of her airless, life-sized figure.Cradling her head, he began to cry - each tear held a thousand wishes to bring her back. He was glad Angie was dead - she had deserved every last blow. As Teddy stroked her artificial hair he noticed the stench coming from his sister who lay several feet away. He knew it was urine - he had heard her bladder release when he struck the final deadly blow. He had hit her once more for good measure - she killed Peg. He had every right.
Carefully, he let Peg's head rest on the carpet. Bending down, he kissed her cheek and wiped some sticky stuff from her rubber lip. Mom had told him before not to touch Peg or to make the nasty in her mouth, but he couldn't help it. He loved her too much just to leave her be. If Mom found out he was doing the nasty then she would take Peg away, like before - he would have to find her too.
As Teddy went back to Angie's body, he stopped for a moment to marvel at her nudity. He had always watched her dress from the closet, but he had never seen her thing up close. He was fascinated by the dark tuft of hair between her legs - Peg didn't have that. Cautiously he touched her thigh, and jerked away as if her flesh were hot. It wasn't, though. In fact, she was starting to get cold. It had been four hours.
Teddy再次走到妹妹的尸体旁，停下脚步，惊奇地盯着她精赤的身体。（要出事儿！）他经常偷窥妹妹在更衣室里换衣服，但从来没如此近距离地观察过。他被Angie双腿 间浓密的毛发吸引住了——Peg可没有这些。他谨小慎微地触向她的大腿，又迅速抽回，像是被她的皮肤烫到一般。尽管事实并非如此——死后4个小时，她实际 上已经彻底僵冷。
"I hate you," he informed her cadaver eyes.
Again he touched her thigh, but this time he didn't pull away. Gently, he ran his fingertips up her hip and toward her crotch. With the other hand, he pulled her muscled legs apart. Between them was a puddle of urine the size of a pancake. He gave her genitals a curious poke. She was much softer than Peg, and wait - although her body was cold and pallid, she was warm inside. He was getting excited by her macabre sexual divinity.
He had to stop - Mother would be upset if he was doing the nasty things. She hated the nasty; Dad had found that out the hard way. All she liked was sewing and watching Family Feud. She loved that Richard Dawson guy.
他得停手了，因为如果继续做这种龌龊事，妈妈会不高兴的。妈妈讨厌这种龌龊事，而爸爸也知道这一点了。（老爸神马个情况呢？到底神马个情况呢？后面分解，总之很惨……）妈妈只喜欢缝缝补补，再就是看"Family Feud"(美国益智问答节目《家庭问答》)。她喜欢那个叫Richard Dawson(该节目主持人)的家伙。
