每天中午,吴先生都穿过后巷,经过臭味的峡谷和鞭炮推销员和旧寺庙,现在用作农场工人的一种拖鞋,这些农民从该国到这些郊区到这些郊区,在市场上出售,在市场上出售,经过一排小店,主要是理发店,妓院,药房以及小型服装店和香烟店,在小家族餐厅找到了一座座位,在大型,摇摇欲坠的风扇下,有道路上的灰尘,订购了猪肉和土豆的菜肴,以及任何新鲜的蔬菜,坐着,看着动画片,在煮熟的食物时烟熏,狗走过,灰尘升起,落在小型卡车,自行车和踏板车后面。

他爱上了那个女人游戏基于“增大化现实”技术cade. She was about his age, in her midforties, and had a daughter in high school. He knew her both from the arcade and from around the neighborhood, as she and her daughter lived just a few doors down from him in an apartment with her sister and her sister’s retarded son. The woman ignored Mr. Wu when they passed each other on the busy road. But when he ran into her in the narrow pathways of the market, she’d smile politely and ask after his health. “Never better,” was the answer he always mumbled. He knew his breath was bad, and because her eyes wandered away so quickly, he knew she had no interest in him.

吴先生不敢拜访当地的妓女。他乘公共汽车进入了城市,并花了多余的钱为这一点。此外,他认为,最好不要知道这些女孩来自何处,他们正在从事谁工作等等。他对性害怕,并坚持下面脱下衣服。在表演中,他将手轻轻地放在女孩的肩膀上,避开了眼睛,但没有闭上。他在某个地方了解到,闭上你的眼睛意味着你恋爱了。他想象着与街机那个女人闭上眼睛。他想知道她是否有与这些妓女相同的身体:柔软,无味和wan。他认为在拜访妓女后有点恨自己是非常标准的,所以当想法来到他身边时,他从未吓了一跳:我很恶心。在公共汽车的家中,他吃了一个冰淇淋,看着窗外,想到了他的女人在街机上以及她那一刻可能正在做的事情,他的心脏伤了。

他独自生活在附近最高的房子里。楼下的邻居是一对年轻的夫妇,有一个大,胖的婴儿和宠物母猪。丈夫为当地议员谋生。该名女子有一只脆弱的手,使吴先生大虾。每当看到它时,他都会颤抖着。他为这个孩子感到难过,用那种扭曲,瘦弱,li行和红色皮肤的触手喂食。来自街机的女人有小,温柔,铜色的手。坚强而肌肉发达,不是骨质,而不是脂肪。好的,他想。完美的手。 He went to the arcade at least once a day and stayed for three to four hours at a time, usually in the late evenings. Sometimes he went in the mornings, too, when it was free of children. Days he did not go, he felt sick to his stomach, and his heart growled like a trapped animal, brooding and useless. So he went as often as he could.

The arcade was not really an arcade. It was a room full of computers with games loaded onto them and access to the Internet. He bought a daily pass from the woman. He handed her a large bill so that she would have to make change and he could stand there longer, watching her count the money, feeling her near to him across the counter.

“你今天好吗,吴先生?”她说。她每天都这么说。

他喃喃地说了一些难以理解的东西。他不知道她周围说些什么。他想说的一切都是“你很漂亮”和“我爱上你”。在他的脑海中,他无话可说。
