?An Outlaw Outing  
 The outing was long overdue. We had been hiding on the outskirts of town as outlaws for far too long. When we overheard that there was an outbreak of some sickness in town that had originated in the orient we knew it was time to come out of hiding and see what was going on. They were calling it the "Oriental Sickness" but we didn't care.
  The first person we met as we wandered into town was a boy who told us outright that he had just become an orphan. He had nowhere else to go and he wanted to join our outfit. Our leader was outraged that such a small boy had recognized us so easily, but we kept walking into town.
  Once there we saw that the ordeal must have been great. All ornaments on the buildings for the coming orthodox holiday season had been torn down, several were burnt from fire, and bodies were lying on the street. When we went to get water the bucket was overflowing with blood. We didn't dare drink anything.
  Quickly losing our orientation as outlaws on the run we were surprised when a mass of people rushed up to us. Their voices were overlapping as they cried for us to take them away. When we replied that we couldn't do anything the crowd turned ugly and ousted us from town.
  As we rode away none of us could speak. Sometimes natural events overwhelm you, as your own mistakes never can.

歹徒的外出  
 出去的时间早就到了,我们作为亡命之徒在城外郊区已经躲得太久。当我们无意中听到城里爆发了一种来自东方的疾病时,我们知道是我们离开躲藏地点出来打探打探的时候了。他们称之为“东方病”,可我们不在乎。
  我们漫步到街上首先碰到的是一个男孩,他坦率地告诉我们他刚刚成了孤儿,没有地方可去,想加入我们这邦人。我们的头儿很愤慨,因为这样一个小男孩居然这么容易就认出了我们,但我们还是继续往城里赶。
  一到城里我们就发现那里一定发生过一场苦难经历。建筑物上所有为即将到来的传统节日准备的装饰品都被扯了下来,有些被火烧掉了,街上到处是尸体。我们去找水,水桶里却装满了血,我们什么都不敢喝。
  作为逃跑中的歹徒我们很快迷失了方向,看到一大群人冲向我们,我们非常吃惊。他们大声喊着要我们把他们带走,他们的声音重叠在一起。当我们回答说我们帮不了忙时,人群变得凶巴巴的并把我们从城里驱逐出来了。
  骑马离开的时候,我们谁也说不出话来。有时候,虽然你自己的错误决不会制服你,而天灾却会。
