It isn't a large room, and the furniture in it isn't expensive.
At one end of the room, there is a small window.
Next to the window is a large bed.
In fact, the only large thing in the room is the bed.
There are other things, too; a bookcase, a small night table, a desk and chair, a dresser, and clothes.
也有其他的东西一个书柜, 一张小床头几, 一张桌子和椅子, 化妆台, 被褥.
There are shoes and socks under the bed; shirts, pants, and sweaters on the chair; dirty underwear and ties on the floor; suits, jackets, and a coat in the small closet.
鞋子, 袜子放在床下;衬衣, 裤子、和毛衣搭在椅上; 脏内衣和领带搁在地板上; 西装、夹克和外衣, 挂在小衣橱里.

One thing is very clear. Pedro likes women very, very much.
Pedro's mother doesn't like to go into his room.
She does, of course, because she wants to clean, but she is not happy about it. "The room is full of women. He doesn't need me." she says.
当然, 她还是会去, 因为她必须加以清理, 但是, 她是不十分愉快的, 她说 "房子里满是女人, 他根本就不需要我".
How old is Grandfather? I don't know. He never talks about his age.
爷爷多大了? 我不知道, 他从不提他的年龄.
He's around seventy, maybe seventy-five.
Years ago he was a strong man.
He was a farmer, a soldier, and a wrestler.
He was the pride of his village.
Now he's getting old. He doesn't see without his glasses, and he can't lift heavy things.
现在, 他渐渐老了, 不戴眼镜便看不见东西, 他无法搬动笨重的东西,
His hair is thin and almost all white.
But he has a strong face.
Grandfather loves his store. He needs the store. It's his only joy. He has friends, but they are all old.
爷爷很喜欢他的商店, 他需要这商店, 那是他唯一的享受. 他有朋友, 但他们都老了.
Oh, yes, he has us, the family, and I guess he loves us, but he doesn't show it.
噢, 对了, 他有我们这些家人, 我猜他是爱我们的, 只是他从不表现出来.
He lives in the past. All of his friends are living in the past. At least the past can't change.

I don't like that.
It's not right to break a date.
But, it's funny, I don't feel bad about it.
I'm sure he breaks dates with women all the time. That's the way he is.
Why did I want to go to the party with him?
Why did I change my mind?
A feeling. That's not an answer, I know.
是一种直觉, 我知道, 那不算是个答案.
But my feeling was right. I didn't really want to go out with him. He didn't really care about me.
不过, 我的直觉是对的, 我并不真的要跟他出去, 他并不真的在乎我.
I was only a date for the evening. All right, it wasn't nice, but he certainly didn't die of a broken heart.
我只是那天晚上一个约会的对象而已, 好吧, 算是不对, 但是他也没有伤心而死.
Didn't he go to the party anyway?
Yes, I think he did. I'm sure he did.
对! 我想他去了, 我相信他去了.
Miguel is different. He is serious and considerate. But he's young, and he doesn't know the ways of the world. And he's going home soon.
米盖尔便不同, 他正经而体贴, 只是年轻而不够世故, 而且他没事便回家,
He isn't very handsome, but he has a beautiful smile.
