Lesson 34 Undercover 密探 Undercover

The smell of roasted chillis filled the air as the chef moved the large chunks of charcoal around in the fire. He chilled a bottle of red wine as he waited for the fire to build. I’m at a chateau in France. By the way, French chefs love to chat, and they usually have a fair amount of charisma. However, they will chide you if you try to speak French. Fortunately, I do not speak French.

空气中弥漫着烤辣椒的味道,厨师正忙着将火里烧着的大块木炭铺开。他凉了瓶红葡萄酒,一面等着火旺起来。我在一座法国城堡里。对了,法国厨师喜欢聊天,而且他们通常很有魅力。但如果你试图讲法语,就会遭到他们的责骂。幸好我不说法语。

Did I mention that I’m a well-trained secret agent? I keep my edge by remaining chaste. I’m also chary. I never work without a disguise that matches my assignment. I’m also an expert at using chicanery to accomplish my mission.

我提到我是个训练有素的密探了吗?我为人正派,故总能胜人一筹。我还非常谨慎,工作时我总会伪装起来,以配合任务需要。我尤其善用诡计,从而圆满完成任务。

By the way, I’m working undercover at this moment. My job is to investigate Joe Banana who is the head of a big charity. I followed him to this island chateau where he’s holding a party. It was pretty tough getting here. I had to charter a private boat and even the captain had problems charting his course. It was a pretty chilly night to be on a boat.

顺便说一下,我现在正秘密工作。我的任务是调查一家大型慈善组织的头目乔巴拿纳。我跟踪他来到这座岛上城堡。他将在这里举办宴会。要来这里可不容易。我得租上一条私人小船,而船长甚至很难把航线在海图上标示出来。这天晚上坐在船上感觉相当寒冷。

Gaining entry to the chateau was just as difficult. They always check you at the door for weapons. Also, you have to make a charitable contribution to gain entry to these types of parties. I used my disguise to sneak in through the kitchen. I wish that noisy bird hadn’t chirped.

进城堡也同样困难。他们总是在门口检查你有没有携带武器。而且,你还得慷慨解囊,方能参加这种慈善宴会。我靠伪装通过厨房混了进去。要是那只吵死人的鸟没喳喳叫就好了。

I really cherish these successful infiltrations. Now, all I need to do is to charm my way into a seat at Joe Banana’s table so that I can hear everything he says. I probably should have used a different disguise but this was the only one that seemed to match the assignment. I hope he likes chimpanzees!

我非常珍惜这些能成功潜入的机会。现在,我只需一路应酬地做到乔巴拿纳的那桌酒席上就行了,这样,我就可以一字不漏地听他发表讲话。我也许改用别的伪装,但只有这一身才适合这次任务。我希望他喜欢黑猩猩!
