The Island

岛屿

Where am I? Bob thought to himself when he woke up on a peculiar beach. "I can't remember what happened." There had been a bad storm, and Bob's fishing boat sunk. He washed ashore on a small island, but he had gotten hurt during the storm. He had a terrible migraine, and he had a fracture in his shoulder. He felt awful. But he had a strong desire to make it home to his spouse and children. He had to tolerate all the pain and devise a plan.

“我在哪儿?”鲍勃在一个奇特的海滩上醒来时心想。“我不记得发生了什么事。”发生了一场暴风雨,鲍勃的渔船沉没了。他被冲到一个小岛上,但他在风暴中受伤了。他感到剧烈的偏头痛,而且肩膀骨折。他感觉很糟糕。但他有一种强烈的愿望,希望能回到他的配偶和孩子身边。他不得不忍受所有的痛苦,想出一个计划。

Bob stood up and looked around. "I'll walk to a higher altitude, so I can see everything around me," thought Bob. "Maybe I'll gain some insight about this island and find something to help me escape." As he walked along a mountain ridge, he noticed that the tall indigenous trees looked sturdy and thick. Bob got a brilliant idea. He could build a raft! He cut down some leaves and tree limbs. Even though his shoulder injury impaired his ability to carry the materials, he slowly dragged them down the mountain until he reached the coastline.

鲍勃站起来环顾四周。“我要走到更高的地方,这样才能看到我周围的一切,”鲍勃想。“也许我会对这个岛有一些了解,找到一些东西来帮助我逃离。”当他沿着山脊走的时候,他注意到当地高大的树木看起来又粗又壮。鲍勃想到了个好主意,那就是造个筏子!他砍下一些树叶和树枝。尽管肩膀受伤影响了他搬运物资的能力,他还是慢慢地把物资拖下山,一直来到海边。

Bob was a proficient builder. He used his building expertise to line up the limbs and tie them together with long vines. When the raft was finished, Bob was happy with his work. "This will bring me home to my family," he said with a smile.

鲍勃是个不错的手艺人。他用他的建造技术把树枝排成一行,用长长的藤蔓把它们绑在一起。木筏完成后,鲍勃对他的工作很满意。“我能借助这个回到我的家人身边,”他笑着说。

At last, Bob was ready to implement his escape plan. With all his might, he thrust the raft into the water. He climbed on and began the quest to find his way home. Bob smiled again, and thought, "I'm glad I kept a good attitude. It prevented the pain from deterring me from my plan. Optimism and ambition make anything possible." Slowly, he floated out to sea. In a few days, he made it to shore and ran home to see his happy family.

最后,鲍勃准备实施他的逃离计划。他使出全身力气把木筏扎进水里。他爬上去,开始寻找回家的方向。鲍勃又笑了笑,心想:“我很高兴我保持了良好的心态。没有让疼痛阻止我的计划。乐观和雄心使一切皆有可能。”他慢慢地漂向大海。几天后,他到达了岸边,跑回家去看他幸福的家人。
