      Inside, the crimson room bloomed with light.Tom and Miss Baker sat at either end of the long couch and she read aloud to him from the SATURDAY EVENING POST.—the words, murmurous and uninflected, running together in a soothing tune. The lamp-light, bright on his boots and dull on the autumn-leaf yellow of her hair, glinted along the paper as she turned a page with a flutter of slender muscles in her arms.[crimson:深红色的。]

   【灯光照在他皮靴上雪亮,照在她秋叶黄的头发上暗淡无光,每当她翻过一页,胳臂上细细的肌肉颤动的时候,灯光又一晃一晃地照在纸上。】

    When we came in she held us silent for a moment with a lifted hand.

  “To be continued,” she said, tossing the magazine on the table, “in our very next issue.”

            Her body asserted itself with a restless movement of her knee, and she stood up.

    【她膝盖一动,身子一直,就霍地站了起来。】

  “Ten o’clock,” she remarked, apparently finding the time on the ceiling. “Time for this good girl to go to bed.”

       “Jordan’s going to play in the tournament to-morrow,” explained Daisy, “over at Westchester.”

       “Oh—you’re Jordan BAKER.”

     I knew now why her face was familiar—its pleasing contemptuous expression had looked out at me from many rotogravure pictures of the sporting life at Asheville and Hot Springs and Palm Beach. I had heard some story of her too, a critical, unpleasant story, but what it was I had forgotten long ago.

 【我还听说过关于她的一些闲话,一些说她不好的闲话,至于究竟是什么事我可早已忘掉了。】

  “Good night,” she said softly. “Wake me at eight, won’t you.”

       “If you’ll get up.”                                                         

       “I will. Good night, Mr. Carraway. See you anon.”

       “Of course you will,” confirmed Daisy. “In fact I think I’ll arrange a marriage. Come over often, Nick, and I’ll sort of—oh—fling you together. You know—lock you up accidentally in linen closets and push you out to sea in a boat, and all that sort of thing——”

[比方说,无意间把你们关在被单储藏室用啦,或者把你们放在小船上往海里一推啦,以及诸如此类的方法……"]

  “Good night,” called Miss Baker from the stairs. “I haven’t heard a word.”
