Master 0sifu Story: The clever Washington

Washington was the first president of the U.S. He was very clever even when he was still a 12-year-old-boy.

华盛顿是美国的第一任总统,他在12岁时就十分聪明。

 

Once a thief stole some money from Uncle Post, Washington’s neighbor. The door of the house was not broken, and things in the room were in good order. Washington concluded that the thief must have been committed by one of the villagers.

有一次,一个小偷从他的邻居大叔皮斯特那里偷了一点钱,房屋是好好的,屋子里的东西很整齐。华盛顿得出结论窃案必定是村民中的某一个人干的。

 

That evening at the villagers’ meeting the said, “We don’t know who stole the money but God does. God sends his wasp to tell good from evil. Every night the wasp flies among us but few people notice it…” Then, all of a sudden Washington waved his hand and cried out, “Look! The wasp has landed on the thief’s hat. It is going to sting!”

晚上在村民大会上,他说:“虽然我们不知道是谁偷了钱,但神知道。神派他的黄蜂分辨善恶,每天晚上黄蜂虽然在我们之间飞,但很少人会察觉。”华盛顿突然挥了挥手喊道:“看黄蜂停在贼的帽子上了,贼要被刺到了。”

 

The crowd burst into an uproar. Everybody turned to look for the thief. But soon the noise died down. All eyes were fixed on a man who was trying hard to drive the “Wasp” off his hat.

人群突然变得哗然,每个人都转过身找那个贼,但是不久喧哗声渐渐平息下来。所有的眼睛都盯着试图赶走帽子黄蜂的人。

 

“Now we know who stole the money,” Washington said with a smile.

“现在,我们知道了谁偷了钱。”华盛顿微笑着说。
