木人巷與謀人寺 (3)

離開雲中鳳山莊(真有其名!記錯除外),心有餘悸。此地的銅人比酒井法子和波根士丹利更厲害,而我當然心受重傷。(往後內心交戰之烈,整星期仍不能釋懷,一直寄望神跡。)

阿蛋和其他人當然盡興,但我就心力交瘁。

回程的時候,一行七八人,大多繼續餘興,嘻嘻哈哈,而老闆和我則在閉目養神。我倆也不理會阿蛋一路“左片右片”地應著他們的爛笑話。

忽然一個來電打擾了老闆的清優。有行家跟他說:有飛機撞落美國的帝國大廈。

老闆和我皆以為開玩笑,著行家看清楚是否世紀大騙局。乘客們又把他們的笑話,加進這個大笑話中。

掛了這一通電話,又有來電,然後又有來電,更有來電說,不只世貿中心,還撞落五角大樓… 當全世界人都說這是一個事實的時候,我也開始覺得這不是一個謊話。我不知道老闆有沒有看到我的臉色,我只知道,我的心情跟他一樣。其餘的乘客似乎也看出這應該不是一個謊話,然後對著我們兩個港燦大笑:“美帝國終於也有這樣的一天了,哈哈哈哈哈…”

頂,來年美國訂單沒了你就趕快給我滾!

*********

雖然這塊國土燃燒了我的輕狂歲月,但我找到的,不是謀人寺,而是實實在在的木人巷,被打退了,倒了,再來過!一定不可倒而不起!而我知道有很多像我一樣的同伴,則希望找到這些謀人寺,過其眼不見為乾淨的生活,好讓自己心靈枯竭的日子,獲得片刻的安慰。也但願冬去春回的日子,不遠。

神跡呀,願你不要離棄我。

哥哥,因乜野事我近排睇極都唔明?

C.M. said...

係咩阿妹... 或者係我d老人癡呆開始惡化...

ak said...

C.M.兄,

果一日,AK又係係Office趕盡書...忽然收到通知,話有飛機撞帝國大廈...

即刻開電視睇睇...之後果晚就無離開過部TV...仲好想即時置身現場...記者...嗜血得無藥可救...

之後果期書既偏者話,我用左一個同事幾個月前去NY影響帝國大廈做配相...

(btw...係唔係中間少左一集2.5呢?坦白從寬!抗拒從嚴!)

C.M. said...

AK兄: 晨早流流,搞到小弟戰戰兢兢...(驚驚)

... Err... 想問,點解你會知道真係有v2.5呢?(事緣因為比某某審裁處見到,認為咁樣呢樣又果樣,所以暫時存係竉底,要修飾過先出得街)

另外,帝國大廈係第一次來電引起的誤傳,查實係...

我都同意AK咁講喎,點解中間好似少左啲咁!?

果一日,我正正溫緊書考Alevel,望見第二架飛機撞向WTC,我整整一晚有訓,响度睇新聞。

Right! 好似接唔到個劇情發展, 一定係自我CENSOR揪起吧! 快來準備大刑...

(危險!速逃!)

果晚返到宿舍,睇唔到電視播,要隔左幾日返到香港先睇到... 隨口up左句:有冇搞錯。之後個心情,就恍如親歷其境,好down。

捱得到的話, 再惡劣的情況你都會捱得到。

亦希望到最後, 大家都"望到家鄉"!

果晚我同朋友食緊飯,佢女友call佢話飛機撞世貿,咁大家都呆左,快快返屋企睇電視,好似發惡夢咁,十足假既。

我相信我如果當時我在世貿一定會死,因為我從來唔理警鍾響。記唔記得果時仲有人搶購降落傘?

比起911,我更加欣賞英國人對倫敦連環炸彈案既反應囉,佢地係出來示威,banner係 話:We are NOT afraid!

打過兩次世界大戰真係唔同d。

又,2.5!2.5!2.5!2.5!2.5!2.5!2.5!

做人要珍惜啊,神跡無幾可發生。

c.m.兄,

你話果件事睇完真係瞓唔著, 特別係第一幢下榻時直覺係難以置信. 仲好記得電視caption打住"this is not a movie", 好震撼, 又好驚.

果陣時喺美國公司做, 記得HQ俾(喺美國)有需要既同事暫時離開崗位, 直至辦妥事宜為止, 算係咁呀.

仲有....你既然都講咗有, 咁我要睇"二步半"呀, 唔好話聽唔到啦!

C.M. said...

Karen:

當時情況雖然日漸褪色,但係之後個心情仲係記憶猶新。坦白講,我事後真係驚得好緊要。(Errr... 又再坦白dd... 想捱...但又唔?捱...)

香水妹妹:

下?!乜仲有人搶購降落傘咩?呢個就真係唔知播。不過你提到英國人,我都有同感。無論是否因為已經有美國既“經驗”或者因為無咁“恐怖”,我都覺得佢地當時真係會令d恐怖分子覺得無癮。

肥龍兄:

下?!電視caption仲打住"this is not a movie"?嘩,原來我真係miss左好多野。我諗你之前間公司d同事,心情都應該好沉重...

(你睇我唔到我睇你唔到你睇我唔到我睇你唔到你睇我唔到我睇你唔到你睇我唔到我睇你唔到你睇我唔到我睇你唔到你睇我唔到我睇你唔到)

On the 911 scene, a Chinese politician laughed a similar comment! It was a bit shameful to see "my people" act so foolishly. No matter how much you hate a country, 也不應因為人民遭到不測因幸災樂禍。還在災難的現場! 太白痴了罷。

I live in the west coast, so it happened before I went to work. I got a call and turned on the TV, I really thought it was some kind of joke or it was a scene from a movie. It was quite devastating.

I was supposed to fly to HK the next day, so my flight delayed for about a week. But while I was in HK, it really didn't help to hear ignorant comments that were made by the Chinese people. And I really wanted to be back in the states. (But I needed to be in a wedding in HK.)

I think that event really made me realize I belong here in the states. My heart is here. And my heart ached when such a unfortunate thing happened to the people. And that's not something people outside of the states can understand. So during that few weeks that I stayed in HK, it had made it more difficult for me to process this event.

Anyway, it was quite an emotional time for me... sorry I had said too much...

C.M. said...

No, you never said too much.

Wish you peace.
