Butterflies By Patricia Grace

The Grandmother plaited her granddaughter’s hair and then she said, “Get your lunch. Put it in your bag. Get your apple. You come straight back after school, straight home here. Listen to the teacher,” she said. “Do what she say.”

Her grandfather was out on the step. He walked down the path with her and out onto the footpath. He said to a neighbor, “Our granddaughter goes to school. She lives with us now.”

“She’s fine,” the neighbor said. “She’s terrific with her two plaits in her hair.”

“And clever,” the grandfather said. “Writes every day in her book.”

“She’s fine,” the neighbor said.

The grandfather waited with his granddaughter by the crossing and then he said, “Go to school. Listen to the teacher. Do what she say.”

When the granddaughter came home from school her grandfather was hoeing around the cabbages. Her grandmother was picking beans. They stopped their work.

“You bring your book home?” the grandmother asked.

“Yes.”

“You write your story?”

“Yes.”

“What’s your story?”

“About the butterflies.”

“Get your book then. Read your story.”

The granddaughter took her book from her schoolbag and opened it.

“I killed all the butterflies,” she read. “This is me and this is all the butterflies.”

“And your teacher like your story, did she?”

“I don’t know.”

“What your teacher say?”

“She said butterflies are beautiful creatures. They hatch out and fly in the sun. The

butterflies visit all the pretty flowers, she said. They lay their eggs and then they die. You don’t kill butterflies, that’s what she said.”

The grandmother and the grandfather were quiet for a long time, and their granddaughter, holding the book, stood quite still in the warm garden.

“Because you see,” the grandfather said, “your teacher, she buy all her cabbages from the supermarket and that’s why.”

    這是一篇微型小說,捕捉和記錄了普通人的一個普通生活場景。作者派特裏夏·格雷斯是當代新西蘭女作家,毛利人,60年代 末開始從事文學創作,以從容優美的抒情散文風格見長。她的作品主要是短篇小說,包括《夢睡人》(The Dream Sleeper,1980)和《電城》(Electric City,1987)等小說集,後期也創作了不少優秀的兒童文學作品。格雷斯的作品生活氣息濃郁,她善於在對凡人瑣事的描寫中,射折某種生活悟識。本選篇中,作家通過祖父母、孫女、老師對蝴蝶的不同態度,惟妙惟肖地刻畫了不同的人物個性。
