小红帽

from 小红帽 (中国儿童文学网)

 (Simplifed by Ling-Ling Shih)

从前有个可爱的小姑娘,谁见了都喜欢,但最喜欢她的是她的奶奶,她要什么就给她什么。一次,奶奶送给小姑娘一顶小红帽,戴在她的头上正好合适。从此,小红帽再也不愿意戴别的帽子了,所以大家就叫她“小红帽”。
一天,妈妈对小红帽说:“来,小红帽,这里有一块蛋糕和一瓶葡萄酒,快给奶奶送去,奶奶生病了,身子很不好,吃了这些就会好一些的。现在天还不热,快上路吧。在路上要好好走,不要跑,也不要离开大路,不然的话你会找不到奶奶的家,那样奶奶就什么也吃不上了。到奶奶家的时候,别忘了说‘早上好’,也不要一进她的家门就东看西看。”
“我会小心的。妈妈”小红帽对妈妈说,还跟妈妈说她会快去快回,不会在路上玩儿。
奶奶住在村子外面的森林里,离小红帽家有很长一段路。小红帽一边走一边唱歌儿,一走进森林的时候就碰到了一条狼。小红帽不知道狼是一个坏东西,所以一点也不怕它。
“你好,小红帽,”狼说。
“谢谢你,狼先生。”
“小红帽,这么早要到哪里去呀?”
“我要到奶奶家去。”
“你那条裙子下面有什么东西呀?”
“一块蛋糕和一瓶葡萄酒。昨天我们家烤了一些蛋糕,可怜的奶奶生了病,要吃一些好东西才能好起来。”
“你奶奶住在哪里呀,小红帽?”
“进了林子还有一段路呢。她的房子就在三棵大树下。你一定知道的。”小红帽说。
狼在心中想着:“这个小东西看起来很好吃,味道一定比那个老太婆要好。我要好好想出一个好办法,让她俩都逃不出我的手心。”于是它跟小红帽一起走了一会儿,然后对她说:“小红帽,你看这些红红的花多么漂亮啊!你怎么不回头看一看呢?还有这些小鸟,它们唱得多么好听啊!你可能没有看到听到吧?林子里的一切多么美好啊,而你却只知道一直往前走一直走,就像是去上学一样。”
小红帽抬起头来,看到阳光在树木间来回跳荡,鸟儿在树枝上跳来跳去,美丽的花儿在四周开放,就想:“我去看看这里有什么花儿,可以摘一朵漂亮的红花给奶奶,让她高兴高兴。现在天色还早,我一定不会晚到奶奶家的。”所以她就离开大路,走进林子去采花。她每采下一朵花,总觉得前面还有更美丽的花朵,所以不知不觉地就一直走进了林子里了。
就在这个时候,狼跑到奶奶家,敲了敲门。 “是谁呀?” 奶奶问。“是小红帽。”狼回答,“我给你送蛋糕和葡萄酒来了。快开门吧。” “你自己开门进来吧,”奶奶大声说,“我没有力气,起不来。”

狼就自己开门进去了。狼二话没说就冲到奶奶的床前,把奶奶吞进了肚子。然后她穿上奶奶的衣服,戴上她的帽子,躺在奶奶的床上。
可是这时小红帽还正在林子里采花。直到采了很多花以后,她才想起奶奶,才上路去奶奶家。
看到奶奶家的屋门没关,她觉得很奇怪。她一走进屋子就有一种奇怪的感觉,心中便想:“天哪!平常我那么喜欢来奶奶家,今天怎么这样害怕?”她大声叫道:“早上好!”,可是没有听到回答。她走到床前,只见奶奶躺在床上睡觉,样子看起来非常奇怪。
“哎,奶奶,”她说,“你的耳朵怎么这样大呀?”
“为了更好地听你说话呀,乖乖。”
“可是奶奶,你的眼睛怎么这样大呀?”小红帽又问。
“为了能更清楚地看你呀,乖乖。”
“奶奶,你的手怎么这样大呀?”
“可以更好地抱着你呀。”
“奶奶,你的嘴巴这么大呀?”
“可以一口把你吃了!”
狼话一说完,就从床上跳起来,把小红帽吞进了肚子,狼吃了小红帽以后,便躺到床上开始大声呼呼地睡觉了。一位猎人刚好从屋前走过,心想:“这老太太鼾打得好大声啊!我要进去看看她是不是出什么事了。”猎人进了屋,来到床前时却看见一只狼躺在那里。“你这个坏东西,我找了你这么久,真没想到在这里找到你!”他说。他正准备开抢打死狼的时候,突然又想到,这狼很可能把奶奶吞进了肚子,奶奶可能还活着。猎人就没有开枪。他用一把剪刀,开始动手把呼呼大睡的狼的肚子剪了开来。他只剪了两下,就看到了红色的小帽子。他又剪了两下,小红帽便跳了出来,叫道:“吓坏我了!狼肚子里黑漆漆的。”后来,奶奶也活着出来了。小红帽赶快跑去搬来几块大石头,塞进狼的肚子。狼起了床以后就想逃走,可是那些石头太重了,它一站起来就跌倒在地,摔死了。
三个人高兴极了。猎人剥下狼皮,回家去了;奶奶吃了小红帽带来的蛋糕和葡萄酒,就觉得好多了;小红帽在想:“以后我要听妈妈的话,不要一个人自己离开大路,跑进森林了。”

小红帽高高兴兴地回了家,从此再也没有看到会吃人的狼了。
