且相忘于江湖

记得看电影的时候,弹幕里一群人不停怀疑Naturelle,因为种种诡异的原因(并不是因为同情诺顿演的男主),我对她也没什么特别的好感。不过读了书之后平心而论,我觉得Naturelle其实是个挺可怜的人,因为她一直生活在一种不安之中。她爱着Monty,但她有时并不确定Monty对她的感情。最有趣的是,在她的心目中Monty似乎是个很不靠谱的家伙。

She has always known that one day Monty would be arrested or murdered, that he would leave their bed in the morning and not return at night. She could not imagine growing old with him - she could not imagine Monty growing old at all. In her mind she tried to gray his hair, to furrow his skin with wrinkles and put a hitch in his loose stride, but the pictured Monty always shucked off these disguises and grinned at her, free and easy and relentlessly young. He was like a smart boy who has not yet learned to fake an interest in other people. He was careless with the affections of his family and friends. He had always been loved; he never had to work for love.
Monty would joke about their future children; Naturelle never did. She could not imagine Monty as a father. She could easily imagine him impregnating women, but not being a father. The image of Montgomery walking through the park with a baby riding on his back was ludicrous, impossible.

Naturelle说她喜欢Monty总能不动声色地创造奇迹。

And that was why she loved him, because at his best he possessed more natural grace than any other man she ever met, because some days he performed miracles and didn't even notice.

不过根据上一章Monty自己的碎碎念,他才不可能没有注意到,他就是想要成为这种“有办法”的人。

Naturelle跑步过程中一个和Frank在一个单位工作的家伙前来搭讪,我一边看一边想如果是那个和Frank不对付的Marcuse就好玩了(后来才反应过来Marcuse已经结婚了),结果一直到最后都没说这个人是谁,果然是个路人甲吧。不过这段也侧面表明了,这个职业就算赚得不少也不容易吸引异性啊,电影里的Frank还真是自我膨胀得厉害。就算Monty看上去再不靠谱,姑娘们还是喜欢这一型的。
