"Look!" Jane Cole said. "Here she comes now!"

The two Americans looked along the street. There were crowds of people everywhere. In the middle of the road, soldiers were riding towards them on horseback. Behind them came a golden coach, pulled by six black horses.
查看中文翻译
"That's my father," Jane said. "He's the coachman -- the man driving the horses,"
查看中文翻译
The American woman said, "Fantastic! Your father's driving the Queen! Quick, Harry, use the video camera!"
查看中文翻译
"I am using it!" her husband said. "But she's too far away. Can't we get a little nearer, Jane?"
查看中文翻译
"We can try," Jane said. "Follow me!" She took them nearer to the entrance to Parliament. "This is where the coach will stop and the Queen will get out. Then she'll go upstairs to open Parliament for this year."
查看中文翻译
"Didn't… put a bomb under your Parliament once?" the American man asked. "I read about that at school. Guy… something?"
查看中文翻译
"Guy Fawkes," Jane said. "In 1605. He tried to blow up Parliament, that's right. But don't worry. There's no Guy Fawkes here today."

She smiled at the Americans, She was a student, and this was her part-time job -- to show tourists round London. She felt proud to show them her father, driving the Queen on a wonderful day like this.
查看中文翻译
Then the Queen's coach… past in front of them, the golden roof bright in the sunlight.
查看中文翻译
There were people everywhere, trying to take photos. Jane saw a woman with red-brown hair behind the American man, pressing the button of her camera. That's stupid, Jane thought, she can only see the backs of people's heads there. The woman shook her -- angrily; there seemed to be something wrong with it. The American… pulled Jane forward, laughing happily. "Come on," she said, "let's get to the front! Use that video, Harry!"

Alan Cole stopped the coach outside Parliament, and sat there, quietly holding the horses. A man opened the coach door, and Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh got out. Then the Queen got out. She was wearing a long white dress, and carrying a gold handbag. She walked slowly towards the entrance to the building.

"Excuse me, please," the woman with red-brown hair said. "I must get closer." She pushed past Jane and held out her small black camera.
查看中文翻译
"Oh, all right," Jane said. "But… My God!"
查看中文翻译
There was a loud BANG! Jane saw a bright white light in front of her eyes, and felt a terrible hot wind on her face. The wind threw her backwards, and she fell to the ground with a lot of other people. For a moment she lay there, not thinking, not seeing.
查看中文翻译
Per eyes were open but she saw nothing. Only… blue sky. She heard nothing. Only… silence. Her body felt no pain. But she could smell something. Smoke.
查看中文翻译
Smoke? she thought. I don't understand. Why smoke? And this blue sky. Where am I?
查看中文翻译
Then the screaming began.
查看中文翻译
The screaming was high and loud and terrible. It didn't sound human. It went on and on and on.
查看中文翻译
Jane… a hand in front of her, on the ground. A man's hand with blood on it. And broken glass. She moved her head and… broken glass everywhere, and blood, and bodies lying on the ground, She stood up slowly.
查看中文翻译
For a moment she thought everyone was dead. There… bodies everywhere, but no… was moving. Then, man ran across the road, and one of the bodies moved, The body was not human; it… a horse. As it moved, it screamed. The horse tried to stand up, but it couldn't, because it only had three legs. There… blood all round the horse, and a big bit of wood in its stomach.

The Queen's coach was broken into a thousand pieces, and there were bits of wood and clothes and bodies everywhere.
查看中文翻译
The bodies looked like broken dolls.
查看中文翻译
"Dad!" she screamed. "Oh God -- my father!"
查看中文翻译
She ran quickly towards the coach. A policeman with a bloody hand tried to stop her, but she pushed him away.
查看中文翻译
"My father's over there!" she screamed.
查看中文翻译
At first she couldn't finch him. There were so many bodies -- and so much blood! She saw the horse in the middle of a great lake of blood, trying to get up on its front leg. There was blood coming from the horse's nose and stomach -- and under the back legs, something that looked like…
查看中文翻译
A body. A man. "Father!"
查看中文翻译
Alan Cole was covered with blood and his face was as white as paper. When he saw Jane, he opened his eyes and screamed. "It's my leg! My leg… get this horse off me!"
查看中文翻译
His leg was under the back of the horse, which was moving wildly, trying to get up. Each time the horse moved, it fell on Alan Cole's leg, and he screamed.
查看中文翻译
Jane ran and pushed the horse but it was too big, too heavy. She pulled its tail but that was no good. It tried to get up and fell on her father's leg again, twice. She could hear his bones breaking. Then a policeman came and held the horse's leg, Jane held its tail, and another policeman held Alan's arms. Jane and the first policeman pulled the horse to one side, while the second policeman pulled Alan free. The horse screamed, eked Jane on the shoulder, and died.

Jane went in the ambulance with her father to the hospital. There were lots of people there. She heard a reporter talking on the telephone to his office.
查看中文翻译
"Five," he said. "Five dead, and about thirty are very badly hurt. It was a bomb -- it must be terrorists. But the Queen is safe. She was inside Parliament with her hush and Prince Charles and…"
查看中文翻译
"Never mind the bloody Queen!' Jane thought. "What about my father?"
查看中文翻译
The doctors took Alan away from Jane, and she had to sit and wait. Her shoulder was hurt, but not badly. For nearly four hours she walked up and down, drank coffee, and thought: why?
查看中文翻译
Why try to kill the Queen -- how will that help anyone? Why kill tourists and soldiers outside Parliament? Why try to kill my father?
查看中文翻译
Jane's father was the most important person in the world to her. When he was a soldier, she had travelled around the world With him. He had taught her to climb mountains, win judo fights, ride horses, sail boats -- he was a great father. Now, she thought, he may be dead.
查看中文翻译
At midnight, a young Indian doctor came to see her. He tired and serious. He looked at her sadly.

"It's bad news, isn't it?" Jane said. "Is he dead?"
查看中文翻译
"No, Miss Cole," the doctor said. "We have saved your father's life. But I am afraid…" He hesitated.
查看中文翻译
"Yes? What then? Please… tell me!"
查看中文翻译
"I am afraid he has lost his leg. It was too badly broken -- we had to cut it off."
查看中文翻译
"Oh my God!" Jane sat down suddenly. "You cut his leg off!" She stared at the doctor and thought. Dad will never be able to climb or ride or sail again. Oh, poor man! It's than being dead! She began to cry.
查看中文翻译
"I'm very sorry, miss," the doctor said. "We had to do it, to save his life. He'll get an artificial leg. He'll learn to use it. At least he's alive…"
查看中文翻译
"Yes, I suppose so." Jane looked up. "I'm sorry, doctor. I'm sure you did your beat. Can I see him now?"
查看中文翻译
"Yes, of course. The nurse will show you…"
查看中文翻译
In the hospital bed, Alan Cole lay quietly. His face was as white as the sheets on the bed, but when Jane came in, he opened his eyes slowly. Jane took one of his hands in hers. The hand was cold, like ice.
查看中文翻译
"Janie? Are you all right?"
查看中文翻译
"Me? I'm fine, Dad. And you're going to be OK too, aren't you? The doctor told me."

He closed his eyes, and for a long time he didn't answer. Perhaps he's asleep again, Jane thought. Then, very quietly, Alan Cole said, "Stay with me, Janie."
查看中文翻译
"Of course, Dad. I'm not going anywhere." Jane sat down on a chair beside the bed. "You sleep now."
查看中文翻译
Her father closed his eyes, and the nurse smiled at Jane. "Would you like a cup of tea, miss?"
查看中文翻译
"Yes, please," Jane said. "It's going to be a long night." She held her father's hand, and watched him sleeping. He looks. happy now, she thought. Like a baby.
查看中文翻译
But, what will he say when, fell him about the leg?
查看中文翻译
Next day, the doctor told Alan about his leg. Jane sat by the bed and held his hand while he listened. He didn't say anything, but tears came into his eyes.
查看中文翻译
"I'm very sorry, Mr Cole," the doctor said. "But we had to do it. Your leg was broken in forty places and you. lest a lot of blood. You're lucky to alive."
查看中文翻译
"Lucky!" Alan Cole said angrily, "With this? Damn it, man, I'll never walk again!"
查看中文翻译
"Oh yes, you will, Mr Cole. We'll get you an artificial leg. They're very good -- they move like an ordinary leg. No one will see it under your trousers."

"And will I be able to ride horses with it, or swim, or climb mountains?"
查看中文翻译
"Well, perhaps not…" The doctor hesitated. "We'll do our best for you, Mr Cole, believe me. Now, here's something to help you sleep. You'll feel better later"
查看中文翻译
All day, Jane waited in the hospital. She drank tea, read newspapers; had a meal, and held her father's hand as he slept. No one came to visit. Her mother was dead; and her brother lived in Australia. At four o'clock her father woke up, and looked at her with big frightened eyes.
查看中文翻译
"Janie?" he said.
查看中文翻译
"Yes, Dad."
查看中文翻译
"What happened? The doctor said there was a bomb, didn't he? And -- I lost my leg. But… I can't remember."
查看中文翻译
Very quietly, Jane told him what she had seen. Then she read the newspaper aloud.
查看中文翻译
Five people have died, and forty are in hospital. One man from the Queen's coach, lost a leg, and toe other three are dead. But the Queen, Prince Charles, and the Duke of Edinburgh were not hurt. Yesterday some Irish terrorists rang the BBC to say they -- exploded the bomb. "We are sorry that ordinary people died," they said. "We meant to kill the Queen, not them. But accidents happen sometimes. The Queen was lucky this time, because the bomb exploded too late. But she has to be lucky every time. We only have to be lucky once."

"My God!" Alan said… "The bastards! Who… Who died?"
查看中文翻译
"One policeman, a tourist, and three coachmen," Jane said. "You were the only coachman who didn't die."
查看中文翻译
"Oh no." Alan's eyes were filled with tears. "George, Bernard, John -- dead! What harm had they ever done to the Irish, or to anyone? Why did the Irish have to kill them with their bloody bomb? There's no justice in this life, is there?"
查看中文翻译
"Well, perhaps the police will…" Jane began.
查看中文翻译
"Yes, I hope they catch those murdering Irish bastards, I really do. I hope they lock them in prison until they die. That's what I hope. By God, I do!"
查看中文翻译
"Of course they will, Dad." Jane stroked her father's hand softly. "The police are out there now, looking for the bombers. They, them before to long."
