英翻中 這段話是什麼意思!!?.... 3

The eye was wide open! I grew angry as I looked at it. I could see it perfectly that dull gray eye with an ugly film over it chilled my hones.

Then I heard it, a low, dull, quick sound. It was like the sound a watch makes when it’s wrapped in cotton. It was the beating of the old man’s heart. It made my anger grow, but even then I kept still. I hardly breathed at all. I kept the ray of light shining on his eye. The beating of his heart grew quicker and quicker, and louder and louder.

In the dead hour of the night, in the awful silence of that old house, that noise terrified me. Yet for a few minutes longer, I stood still.

The beating grew louder, louder! Then a new fear grabbed me. The sound was so loud that a neighbor might hear it!

With a loud yell, I turned the lantern up and leaped into the room. He screamed once, only once, before I dragged him to the floor and lay the heavy mattress over him.

I smiled. The deed was almost done. For many minutes his heart beat on with a muffled sound.
