《星火英语15篇背完六级词汇》教你一种用全新的方法突破六级词汇。Lily lay back in the soft, green grass

    《星火英语15篇背完六级词汇》教你一种用全新的方法突破六级词汇。

    Lily lay back in the soft,

    green grass of the pasture.

    White daisies, golden brown-eyed Susans,

    prickly blue viper's bugloss, and frilly

    Queen Anne's lace surrounded her.

    She beckoned to him from

    what seemed like miles away.

    He hiked through the grass

    calling her name. She began to

    stroll away from him

    into the distance. He had

    to reach her! He loved her so!

    If they couldn't marry, he would

    make her his mistress! Nothing could

    extinguish the flame of his love!

    He would cling to that

    until his dying day.

    Lying stationary was taking

    its toll on Jack's circulation.

    His feet and hands were numb.

    Something was tickling his nose.

    He managed to tilt away

    from the irritant, whatever it was.

    He was so thirsty! He tried

    to lubricate his lips with saliva

    but had none. His bladder felt

    like a separate entity that

    would overflow. He could stall

    the urge to void no longer

    and allowed the urine to

    flow out of him.What did

    it matter now? He was

    as good as dead anyway.

    The fort stood in the center

    of the pasture. A moat filled

    with sharks protected its walls

    from any possible intruders.

    Jack pedaled his bicycle as fast

    as he could. The sharks

    whipped back and forth so quickly

    they created foam on the surface

    of the water. He had to

    cross the drawbridge before

    it was raised, segregating him

    from his regiment and his

    pregnant wife, Lily. She saw him

    approaching and skipped onto

    the bridge to greet him.

    The bridge was rising.

    The sharks were in frenzy!

    He rode as if the hounds

    of hell were after him.

    He had to reach her!

    His right arm was wedged

    against a rock. No matter how

    hard he tried, he couldn't

    wrench it free. This was

    getting tiresome. He felt

    a stitch in his right side.

    That's all he needed now

    to die from a ruptured appendix!

    He had wriggled enough to

    increase the size of the slot

    in which he was trapped.

    Were those voices he was hearing?

    He wasn't deaf!

    When he fought his way

    to the surface of consciousness

    once again, he was being carried

    on a litter over the inverted

    battlefield. Bodies were strewn everywhere.

    The stretcherbearers stumbled over

    the rough ground but maintained control

    of their human cargo as they

    made their way to the field hospital.

    The fuse leading to the dynamite

    in the stern of the oil tanker

    burned so rapidly that Jack knew

    the ship would explode before

    he could reach the hatch

    to extinguish the flame.

    The olive green ship was almost

    within his reach when it blew up.

    He felt as if he were

    on a grill. His face was

    aflame. His body felt as if

    the skin had been ripped

    from it. He wanted to die

    before the pain grew worse.

    His forehead felt cool.

    He opened his eyes slowly, painfully.

    A white-clad nurse sponged

    his face gently. As she became

    aware of his gaze, she stopped

    her ministrations and offered

    him a sip of water.

    “Take it easy,” she whispered.

    “You mustn't drink too quickly.

    Too much, too fast

    will give you nasty cramps.”

    Jack was aware of bandages

    on his muscular arms and casts

    on both legs. Intravenous tubing carried

    a clear fluid into his veins.

    Consciousness was still transient.

    Dreams of a strange pasture mingled

    with reality and continued to

    haunt his sleep. He understood

    he was on a hospital ward,

    but where? And how did he get here?

    The pretty young nurse was back.

    “We cabled your wife.

    She knows you were injured

    but are on the mend.”

    “How did they find me?”

    Jack asked.“A patrol looking

    for survivors found you buried

    in the the foxhole. You were

    calling ‘Lily!’They started digging

    and there you were. You were

    stabilized at the field hospital

    before they could bring you here.

    We scrubbed you up and started

    to you with I.V. therapy.

    You were very dehydrated and

    suffering from urinary retention

    and renal failure. Your kidneys

    may never function normally again.

    The good news is that

    you survived,” she explained.

    A stray strand of hair fell

    across Jack's cheek hiding the tears

    that crept from his eyes.

    He was grateful to have

    his life back. He silently saluted

    his friend. Mike hadn't been so lucky.

    The cable from Lily arrived

    the next day. “We have a son

    stop Born 05 Dec. stop Healthy

    stop Named him Michael stop

    I love you. Lily stop P.S. Dad

    bought the pasture and

    deeded it to Michael.”
