'What were you doing behind that curtain?'he asked.
  'I was reading,'I answered.
  'Show me the book.'I gave it to him.
  'You have no right to take our books,'he continued.'You have no money and your father left yor none.You ought to beg in the streets,not live here in comfort with a gentleman's family.Aayway,all these books are mine,and so is the whole house,or will be in a few years'time.I'll teach you not to borrow my books again.'He lifted the heavy book and threw it hard at me.
  It hit me and I fell,cutting my head on the door.I was in great pain,and suddenly for the first time in my life,I forgot my fear of John Reed.
'You wicked,cruel boy!'I cried.'You are a bully!You are as bad as a murderer!'
“你在帘子后面干什么?”他问。
  “我在读书,”我答道。
  “给我看看。”我将书递了过去。
  “你没权拿我们的书。”他接着说。“你身无分文,你父亲也没给你留下一分钱。你应该上街讨饭,而不是在一位绅士家里过舒服日子。不管怎样,这些书都是我的,几年以后整幢房子也是我的了。我要教训你别再借我的书。”他举起重重的书,狠狠地打在我身上。
  我被打倒在地,头碰在门上磕破了。我感到疼痛不堪,平生第一次突然忘记了我对约翰•里德的恐惧。
  “你这个残忍的坏蛋!”我喊着,“你欺侮人!你像个刽子手!
