  下面小编为大家准备了一则英文故事,里面包含了一些托福核心词汇并以列表的形式在文章末尾单独列出。通过读故事来记单词是一种很有效的方法,不信大家来试一试。

  You can call me A.J., which is an abbreviation of my full name, Alexander Justice. I like to abbreviate my name because it’s easier for people to remember. I work for a museum that collects aboriginal artifacts.

  I would like to tell you why I have an abiding faith in the legal system. The story you’re about to read has been abridged to reduce its length.

  I used to live in an area where criminals abounded and where the legal system seemed powerless. One day, my daughter was abducted. Although I abided by the kidnapper’s monetary demands, they refused to release her. I had no choice but to put my faith in the legal authorities. The Police responded immediately and searched the area. Despite their lack of success, they refused to abandontheir search or to call an abort to their mission. They knew any abortive action would surely result in my daughter’s death.

  The investigation eventually led the police to conduct an abrupt search at the home of a local official who was abashed when he learned of the search. My daughter was found in his basement. She had abrasions to her wrists where theabrasive rope had scraped her. The official was arrested along with his bodyguard who abetted him in the kidnapping.

  The official was forced to abdicate his position and was sent to prison for life. The judge told him that he was lucky that capital punishment had been abolishedand that it was only due to this abolition that he would not be executed. The swift apprehension and strict punishment of these criminals helped to abate my lack of faith in the legal system. These days, I truly believe in “justice”, and it’s not just because of my name!
