The Lucky Knife

幸运匕首

I've devoted my life to studying past generations. Last year, I had a unique chance to work with my uncle. Our job was to find old treasures for a school's history foundation. He also hired a crew of students. They signed a contract to work with him. He was the boss. The place was strange, though. I dined on many things that I had never tasted before. They had an unusual flavor.

我用尽毕生精力去研究我们的先辈。去年,我获得了一个独一无二记得机会,那就是和叔叔一起去工作。我们的工作是去一所学校的遗址寻找古老的宝藏。叔叔还雇了一帮学生,大家签订了工作合同,跟着我叔叔一起工作。虽然那是一个很奇怪的地方,但我在那里尝到了很多以前没吃过的东西,而且口味都很不错。

We had been there about a month and hadn't found anything. One day, I began to dig in the soil. The ground's layers got wetter. Soon I was digging in the mud. My shovel began to get very heavy. It felt like it had doubled in weight because the ground had absorbed a lot of water.

我们在那待了一个月,一无所获。有一天,我开始挖土,我发现泥土湿度越来越大,不久就挖到了泥巴。我的铁锹开始变得很重。因为上面沾满了泥巴,所以比原来要重上两倍。

Finally, I saw something in the mud. It was an old knife! The handle felt smooth in my hand. I elevated it so I could see it better. There was writing on it.

终于,我在泥巴里发现了一些东西。那是一把古老的匕首!它的把手很光滑,我把它拿出来以便能更好地看看。匕首上面还刻着字。

It says it will bring good luck, my uncle said with a smile. "Why don't you keep it?"

“上面写着这把匕首会带来好运,”我叔叔笑着说。“要不你留着吧?”

I put it in my tent. The next day, we found many more things. There were pots, jewelry and weapons. My uncle donated all of the things to a special committee. Many newspapers wrote stories about it. It seemed the knife really did bring good luck!

我把匕首放在帐篷里。第二天,我们找到了更多的东西,有壶,有珠宝,还有武器。我叔叔把这些所有的东西都捐赠给了一个特别的委员会。许多报纸纷纷报道此事。看来那把匕首确实带来了好运!
