美梦告终 The End of a Dream

Tired of sleeping on the floor, a young man in Teheran saved up for years to buy a real bed. For the first time in his life, he became the proud owner of a bed which had springs and a mattress. Because the weather was very hot, he carried the bed onto the roof of his house. He slept very well for the first two nights, but on the third night, a storm blew up. A gust of wind swept the bed off the roof and sent it crashing into the courtyard below. The young man did not wake up until the bed had struck the ground. Although the bed was smashed to pieces, the man was miraculously unhurt. When he woke up, he was still on the mattress. Glancing at the bits of wood and metal that lay around him, the man sadly picked up the mattress and carried it into his house. After he had put it on the floor, he promptly went to sleep again.

一个住在德黑兰的年轻人实在是厌倦了睡在地板上,就用攒了好几年的积蓄买了一张真正的床。有生以来第一次, 他骄傲地成了一张床的主人,而且这张床还有弹簧和床垫。由于天气非常热, 他将这张床搬到了他家房子的屋顶上。前两夜他睡得很好, 但在第三夜, 风暴来了。狂风将这张床从屋顶掀起,把它摔在院子里。年轻人直到这张床撞到地上才醒来。虽然这张床被摔得粉碎, 这个年轻人却神奇地没有受伤。当他醒来时, 他仍躺在床垫上。扫了一眼散落在他身旁的一块块木头和金属碎片,年轻人难过地拾起床垫并将它搬进房间。他把床垫搁在地板上,很快再次进入了梦乡。
