The Sears Skin

西尔斯的皮肤

Have you heard of the story about the man who got married to a seal? He lived alone in his house by the sea, fishing and dreaming of the day he would get married. However, he had trouble with women. In general he was very shy in front of women. In fact,if any woman talked to him, he would sweat and he could not speak.

你听过一个人与海豹结婚的故事吗?他独居在海边,每天垂钓并幻想着自己结婚的那一天。然而,他不擅于和女人打交道。总之,他在女人面前很害羞。事实上,如果有女人跟他说话,他会汗流浃背,而且说不出话来。

One day, the man was walking on the beach in search of a good place to fish. Then he saw a cave. In front of the cave there was a pile of seal skins. The man heard the sound of laughing and singing inside the cave. He had an idea. A seal's skin would be good to wear in case of snow. He helped himself to one of the skins, ran home, and put it in a large box. Then he locked the box with a key.

一天,这个人在海滩上走着,想找一个钓鱼的好地方。然后他看到了一个山洞。洞穴前有一堆海豹皮。他听到洞里有笑声和歌声。他有了一个主意。海豹的皮很适合在下雪的时候穿。他自己拿了一张兽皮,跑回家,把它放在一个大箱子里。然后他用钥匙把箱子锁上。

In the meantime, a naked woman stood outside the cave crying. She could not find her seal skin, and all of her friends and family had left her there.

与此同时,一个裸体女人站在洞穴外哭泣。她找不到自己的海豹皮,所有的朋友和家人都把她留在了那里。

The man returned to the cave and found the woman crying. He asked her, "Why are you crying?" but she did not say anything. She was very cold.

男人回到洞穴,发现女人在哭。于是他问她说:“你为甚麽哭?”女人却一言不发。她很冷。

The man said, "Hold on. I have a blanket. You can wear it to keep yourself warm. Here you are." He gave the woman the blanket. Then the man told the woman that she could stay at his house. They walked back along the beach to his house in silence.

那人说:“等一下。我有一条毯子。你可以穿它来保暖。给你。”他把毯子给了那个女人。然后男人告诉女人她可以住在他家。他们沿着海滩默默地走回他家。

Because the woman did not talk much, the man was very comfortable around her. Soon they fell in love. They got married and lived in harmony with each other for many years.

因为女人话不多,男人在她身边很自在。很快他们就相爱了。他们结了婚,和睦相处了许多年。

One day the man was getting ready to go to church in honor of a special holiday. "Hurry up!" he called to his wife.

有一天,男人准备去教堂纪念一个特殊的节日。他喊他的妻子说:“快点!”

However, his wife did not feel well. She said, "I want to lie down. You go now. I will catch up with you in just a minute."

然而,他的妻子却感觉身体不适。她回答说:“我想躺一会,你现在先去,我很快就能赶上你。”

The man left. The wife's headache became worse, so she began looking for some medicine. While she was looking, she found the key to the box. Because the man was in a hurry to leave for church, he forgot the key at home. The wife opened the large box. There was her lost seal skin! She held up the skin and cried with happiness.

那个人离开了。妻子的头痛更厉害了,所以她开始找药。她正在找的时候,发现了箱子的钥匙。因为那个人急着要去教堂,所以他把钥匙忘在家里了。妻子打开了那个大盒子。那是她丢失的海豹皮!她举起皮肤,高兴地哭了。

She ran to the beach, put on her skin, and jumped into the sea. In a moment she was with her seal family again. The man never heard from her again. However, every time the man would go out fishing, a seal would always swim around the boat watching him.

她跑到海滩,穿上她的皮肤,跳进海里。过了一会儿,她又和海豹一家团聚了。那人再也没有她的消息。然而,每当这个人去钓鱼时,总有一只海豹围着船看他。
