Quotes ― Kathryn Stockett, The Help

 
إقتباس من راوية “The Help ماترجمته لأن معناه أكبر كما هو 
و تعقدت أكثر من ترجمة هالرواية بالذات لأن ترجمتها في المكتبات جدا ً سيئة =_=

The first time I was ever called ugly, I was thirteen. It was a rich friend of my brother Carlton’s over to shoot guns in the field.
.
Why you crying, girl?‘ Constantine asked me in the kitchen.
I told her what the boy had called me, tears streaming down my face.
Well? Is you?
I blinked, paused my crying. ‘Is I what?
Now you look a here, Egenia’-because constantien was the only one who’d occasionally follow Mama’s rule. ‘Ugly live up on the inside. Ugly be a hurtful, mean person. Is you one a them peoples?
I don’t know. I don’t think so,‘ I sobbed.
Constantine sat down next to me, at the kitchen table. I heard the cracking of her swollen joints. She pressed her thumb hard in the palm of my hand, somthing we both knew meant Listen. Listen to me.
.
Ever morning, until you dead in the ground, you gone have to make this decision.‘ Constantine was so close, I could see the blackness of her gums. ‘You gone have to ask yourself, Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?
.
She kept her thumb pressed hard in my hand. I nodded that I understood. I was just smart enough to realize she meant white people. And even though I still felt miserable, and knew that I was, most likely, ugly, it was the first time she ever talked to me like I was something besides my mother’s white child. All my life I’d been told what to believe about politics, coloreds, being a girl. But with Constantine’s thumb pressed in my hand, I realized I actually had a choice in what I could believe.
