I Didn't Do It!

“不是我干的!”

Billy was in big trouble. The day before, a donor gave the school a painting with a sports theme. It showed a referee congratulating two athletes. The principal hung the painting in front of the office, hoping that it would be a stimulus for students to play sports. The next morning, however, the painting was destroyed. There was graffiti on it, and it had many holes in it. The worst part was that one of Billy's fellow students said she thought she saw Billy do it!

比利有大麻煩了。前一天,一位捐贈者送給學校一幅以體育為主題的畫。畫上是一名裁判正在祝賀兩名運動員。校長把這幅畫掛在辦公室前面,希望它能鼓勵學生們鍛煉。然而,第二天早上,這幅畫被毀了。上面有涂鴉和很多洞。最糟糕的是,比利的一個同學說她看到這是比利干的!

But Billy didn't do it. The principal called Billy's parents and said, "Billy won't tell us the truth. He's a chronic liar, and he ruined the painting. If you don't pay for it, we'll terminate his education here."

但這并不是比利做的。校長打電話給比利的父母說:“比利不會承認的,他是個慣于說謊的人,他毀了這幅畫。如果你們不賠償,那就讓他退學。”

Billy's parents didn't have enough money to pay for the painting and for his tuition. But Billy's parents had an idea. That afternoon, they went to see Mr. Meyers, an attorney.

比利的父母沒有足夠的錢支付這幅畫和他的學費,但是他們想到了一個主意。那天下午,他們去見了律師邁耶斯先生。

Mr. Meyers, my son has been implicated in a crime he says he didn't do, Billy's father said. "Everybody believes the gossip. Even some of our own kin think he did it!"

“邁耶斯先生,我兒子卷入了一樁冤案,”比利的父親說。“每個人都相信流言蜚語。甚至我們的一些親戚也認為是他干的!”

I believe you. My suspicion is that the tape from the security cameras will show who really did it, said Mr. Meyers.

“我相信你。我猜學校的監控已經記錄下了一切。,”邁耶斯說。

The next day, Mr. Meyers received a packet with the videotape from the school. It showed another student who resembled Billy walking up to the painting and writing on it. Then the student took a knife by the shaft and started to stab large holes in it. Finally, he severed the rope that held up the painting, and it fell to the floor.

第二天,邁爾斯先生收到了學校寄來的一個裝有錄像帶的包裹。照片中,一個長得很像比利的學生走向那幅畫,在上面涂鴉。然后,這個學生拿起一把小刀,在上面戳了一個大洞。最后,他割斷了掛畫的繩子,畫掉到了地上。

Mr. Meyers showed the tape to the principal. "Clearly, that's not Billy," he said. "This boy is actually responsible and needs some discipline."

邁耶斯先生把錄音帶給校長看。“很明顯,那不是比利,”他說。“真正的罪魁禍首是這個學生,他應該受罰。”

Billy was happy that someone believed him. He said to Mr. Meyers, "When I graduate and go to university, I will major in law, so I can be a guardian of justice like you!"

比利很高興有人相信了他。他對邁耶斯先生說:“等我畢業上大學時,我將主修法律,這樣我就可以像你一樣成為正義的守護者!”
