Little Red-Cap 小红帽

点击数:130 收藏本文

Some days later when red-cap was again taking cakes to the old grandmother, another wolf spoke to her, and tried to entice(诱惑) her to the wood. Red-cap went straight forward on her way, and told her grandmother that she had met the wolf. He had said good-morning to her, but in his eyes there was a wicked look. If they were in the wood, the wolf would have eaten her up. 

"Well," said the grandmother, "we will shut the door, that he may not come in." Soon the wolf knocked, and cried, "open the door, grandmother, I am little red-cap, and am bringing you some cakes." But they did not speak, or open the door, so the gray wolf walked twice or thrice round the house, and at last jumped on the roof. He wanted to wait until red-cap went home in the evening, and then to devour her in the darkness. But the grandmother knew what he was going to do. In front of the house was a great stone trough(槽)槽, so she said to the child, "Take the pail(桶), red-cap. I made some sausages(香肠) yesterday, so carry the sausage water and I filled the trough." Red-cap carried until the great trough was quite full.
Then the smell(气味) of the sausages reached the wolf, and he sniffed (吸气)and peeped down(向下看), and at last he stretched out (伸出)his neck so far that he began to slip(滑), and slipped down from the roof straight into the great trough, and was drowned(淹死). But little red-cap went home happily, and no one ever did anything to harm her again.
