三分钟英文故事之The Breadwinner(19)


(19)

"I think hes asking where Father is," Nooria said. "Come on, Ali, lets find your ball."

Parvana remembered the pieces of photograph and got them out. Her fathers face was like a jigsaw puzzle [1]. She spread the pieces out on the mat in front of her. Maryam joined her and helped her put them in order [2].

One piece was missing. All of Fathers face was there except for a part of his chin [3]. "When we get some tape, well tape it together," Parvana said. Maryam nodded. She gathered up [4] the little pieces into a tidy pile and handed them to Parvana. Parvana tucked them away in a corner of the cupboard.

The third day barely creeped along. Parvana even considered doing some housework, just to pass the time, but she was worried she might disturb her mother. At one point, all four children sat against the wall and watched their mother sleep.

"She has to get up soon," Nooria said. "She cant just lie there forever." Parvana was tired of sitting. She had lived in that room for a year and a half, but there had always been chores [5] to do and trips to the market with Father.

Mother was still in the same place. They were taking care not to disturb her. All the same, Parvana thought if she had to spend much more time whispering and keeping the young ones quiet, she would scream.

It would help if she could read, but the only books they had were Fathers secret books. She didnt dare take them out of their hiding place. What if the Taliban burst in on them again?

Theyd take the books, and maybe punish the whole family for having them.

Parvana noticed a change in Ali. "Is he sick?" she asked Nooria.

"He misses Mother." Ali sat in Noorias lap. He didnt crawl [6] around any more when he was put on the floor. He spent most of the time curled in a ball with his thumb in his mouth.

He didnt even cry very much any more. It was nice to have a break from his noise, but Parvana didnt like to see him like this.
