Cui Yuwei 30#--"Story"

Cui Yuwei 30#--"Story"

Story

Written and self-translated into Chinese by Cui Yuwei

he tipped her a wink through the crowd
and they left the dining table
unobtrusively
outside he stroked her plait
telling he would go and get her some sweets
in the shop
she skipped along at his side
until they reached a brick toilet
50 metres behind grandpa’s house

face to her, he crouched down
and said, good girl
he cupped the back of her head with one hand
the other pried open her shell-like teeth
to help his fat tongue probe inside
and twirl around...

after that
she slouched back, head bent
as if having made a mistake
he joined the feast with ease
while she closed herself in the bedroom
mounted on grandma’s rattan chair
tears silently trailed down her cheeks
she was not sure why she felt like crying
for the rag doll she lost
for the sweets she never got



戀童癖

他悄悄給她使了個眼色
兩人神不知鬼不覺地退出
熱鬧的家宴
他撫著她的小辮說
帶她去買糖
她一蹦一跳
隨他來到屋後五十米外的
磚砌公共廁所
他在她面前蹲下說
接著用左手托住她的後腦勺
右手撬開她的兩排貝齒
肥厚的舌頭探入
上下翻攪
事畢
她悶聲垂頭走回屋
像犯了天大的錯
他再次加入宴席
若無其事
她默默把自己關進奶奶的房間
爬上舊籐椅
呆呆看著晨昏不明的窗外
淚流不止
她不知道自己為什麼哭了
像是為了丟失的布娃娃
像是為了沒有兌現的糖
