wii 車勝元 少年陰陽師[hr]

一位退休教授,跟老妻過著優遊的生活,早上一起爬上小山崗舒展筋骨,下午他料理陽台的花草,又或看看雜誌,妻子則和朋友到咖啡室聊天。他們唯一的女兒,在美國定居。
A retired professor led a leisurely life with his old wife. In the morning, they went hiking on nearby hill as daily exercise. In the afternoon, he nurtured the flowers and grass planted in the balcony or read some magazines, while his wife repaired to a cafe with her friends, chatting and passing the time. The only child they have is their daughter who lives in the U.S. permanently.
月前一個晚上,朦朧間他感到床墊濕了,是老妻尿床。他推推她,發覺她已沒有反應。「節哀順變。」不少親戚朋友說。「謝謝關心,我會的。」他極有禮貌地回答,沒失方寸,一派學者風範。
Amid half sleep in a night last month, he felt the pad sheet over the mattress was wet. "She is incontinent." he thought. He nudged her, but she had no response at all. Replying all of the advices from relatives and friends to him, the bereaved, he always said in a very polite manner, "Thank you for the kindness. I will." With Composure, he maintained the great presence of a scholar.

暗地裡,他部署一切。花草贈給鄰居,向人借的書籍郵寄送還,然後,走上律師事務所全部準備好了。在月圓的晚上,銀光薄薄的灑滿一室,他亮起微黃的檯燈,寫下最後的話。面前,是一瓶藥丸。
Stealthily, he made some arrangements. He gave the flowers and grass away to his neighbors, returning the borrowed books to senders via mail, and then consulting the law firm on his will. At a night when the moon waxed to its full form, he turned on the yellowish desklamp in his room which was slimly shrouded in silver moonbeams, and jotted down his last words. Laid in front of him was a phial of pills.
就在他打開瓶蓋的時刻,電話響起。他拿起電話筒,一把熟悉的聲音傳來:「爸爸,我在機場,我好想陪陪你。」他猛然醒覺。Funeral
At the very instant when he opened up the lid, the phone was ringing. He picked up the handset and heard of a very familiar voice on the other side, "Dad, I am at the airport right now. How am I longing to be with you!" Suddenly it dawned on him and woke him up.
老教授向我說完他的故事,喝一口香片,緩緩道:「最有效防止自殺的東西,不是學術修養,不是心理醫生,不是豐厚財富,原來是一種簡簡單單的關心的感覺。」
After finishing his story, the old professor sipped his jasmine tea and slowly he said, "The most effective method of preventing suicide from happening is not your being knowledgeable, not your pyschiatrist, not the abundance of your wealth. Instead, it is simply a feeling of being cared.

P.S. The original was reputedly written by the chairman of TSMC, Mr. Zhang. I'm sorry Mr. Zhang that I didn't get your prior consent before rendering your work. (I don't know how to get it.) By the way, I am a small but loyal stockholder of your company.
