CHAPTER No. 4
第四章

Dooku woke before dawn. Lying in the dark, he listened to the silence and knew that Lorian had left sometime during the night. He lay on his back, feeling the weight of the air on his body as though his friend was sitting on his chest.
天亮之前,杜库就醒了。黑暗中,四周寂静无声,他意识到Lorian半夜里悄悄地离开了。他翻身仰卧,感觉空气压在他身上的重量,就像他的朋友正坐在他的胸口上一样沉重。

Reluctant to rise, he stared at the walls, watching the darkness slowly silver into gray, until he could see the outlines of his furniture. The light on his bedside table began to glow softly and increase in intensity, his signal to wake up. Then a holographic calendar appeared and glowed in the air overhead. Usually the day calendar had been filled with appointments and classes. Lately he had liked looking at its blankness. Soon he would fill it up with missions.
杜库不愿起来,他凝视着墙壁,看着房间里的黑暗渐渐由银色变成灰白,直到他能看清屋里家具的轮廓。床头柜开始反射出柔和的光芒,越来越刺眼,这是他该起床的信号了。一张全息日历闪烁着出现在他头顶,通常日历上会写满课程和会见安排,但最近他更喜欢看着它空白。虽说过不了多久,他又会在日历里填满各种任务了。

He stared at it, thinking of his future. It was secure. Was Lorian right? Had he been smug about that and failed to appreciate his friend's distress?
他盯着日历,思索着自己的未来。它是那么稳固牢靠。难道Lorian是对的?他总是对此沾沾自喜,丝毫不体谅朋友的痛苦?
He stared at the calendar for long minutes, thinking of this, before it registered on his brain that the entire day had been blocked out. Dooku sat up. The urban search exercise! It was today! Not only that, he saw that he and Lorian had been summoned before the Jedi Council following the search..
他呆看着日历好几分钟,不断地想着这个问题,忽然他心里一惊,整整一天的计划都被打乱了——杜库瘫坐在地——城市搜索训练就在今天!还不止如此,委员会将在训练结束后传召他和Lorian。

The exercise was designed more for competitive fun than for serious training. The older students, the ones who had either been chosen as apprentices or who had finished their formal Temple training, were invited to sign up. They were divided into two teams, and had to track one another through a segment of Coruscant near the Temple. They had to use stealth, cunning, and surveillance techniques. Dooku and Lorian had signed up the week before.
城市搜索训练,与其说是为严肃的正式训练,倒不如说是为了竞争娱乐而设计的。年长一点的学生,包括已经成为学徒或是结束圣殿正式训练的,都在被邀参加之列。游戏中他们将分成两组,在圣殿周围的一个指定区域内,并运用潜行,诡智,盯梢等手段相互追踪。杜库和Lorian上周都报名参加了这个活动。
Dooku swung his legs over the bed. Would he and Lorian still be allowed to participate?
杜库在床上摇晃着腿,他和Lorian还会被允许参加这个活动吗?

He dressed hurriedly and grabbed his training light-saber. He walked out into the hallway and saw Yoda ahead. Yoda nodded a greeting.
他匆忙穿好衣服,抓起训练专用的光剑。他走进大厅,看见尤达大师在前面。尤达向他点了点头。
"Heading to the tracking exercise, are you?" Yoda asked. "I-I don't know if I am permitted.." Dooku stammered.
“急着去搜索训练,是吧?”尤达问道。“我……我不知道我能不能去。”杜库紧张得有点口吃。
Yoda cocked his head at him. "A commitment you made. A Padawan you are. And thus the answer you find is..."
尤达抬头看着他:“承诺,你已经做了。学徒,你是。因此你得到的答案是……”

"I'm going," Dooku said. He hurried off. He had just enough time to grab some fruit for the morning meal before the students assembled outside on the landing platform. He wondered if Lorian would have the nerve to show up.
“我去啦,”杜库接下尤达的话,赶快离开了。在学生们聚集到停机坪外之前,他刚好有足够的时间吃点水果当早餐。他怀疑Lorian是否有勇气露面。
Lorian stood at the edge of the small crowd on the exterior platform. He was clearly uncomfortable and avoided standing too near or too far away. He wore his hood low so that it shaded his eyes. Dooku stood at the edge of the group, opposite from Lorian. No one paid attention to them. Whatever the gossip had been, it had died down, and the students now only thought of the contest ahead.
露天停机坪上,Lorian正站在人群边缘。很显然,他看起来不太舒服,有意避免和人群站得过远或是过近。他压低兜帽,遮上了眼睛。杜库也站在人群的边缘,正对着Lorian。没人注意到他们两。流言蜚语已经渐渐平息了,学生们现在想的只是眼前的对抗赛。

The cool morning air flushed their cheeks and the wind whipped their robes around them as they chattered in excited voices. Dooku felt the combined Force from the group, energetic, unfocused, but strong.
清晨凉爽的空气吹拂着他们的脸庞,强烈的风抽打着他们的长袍,猎猎作响,学生们兴奋地聊着天。杜库感觉原力在这群人里凝聚,充满活力,虽然发散,但是很强大。
For a moment he stood outside himself. It was something that happened to him from time to time. Suddenly he would feel removed, as though he floated above his classmates.
曾有一段时间,他仿佛脱离了自己的肉体——他时不时会处在这种状态中。突然间,他感觉万物都离他远去,就像他的灵魂漂浮在他的同学们之上一样。
How young we all are, he thought, amused. Someday I will look back on this and wish for such simple things as a learning exercise on a cool morning.
我们都是多么年轻啊,他心里想着,不由笑了一下:也许有一天,我会回想起今天,怀念这些单纯美好的事物,比如说在这凉爽早晨的训练。

It made him feel better for a moment. Someday his problem with Lorian wouldn't matter. It would be a blip, a moment of static, something lost in a sea of missions in a remarkable career.
这种想法让他暂时感觉好多了。总有一天,他和Lorian的问题会得到解决。在他不同寻常的事业旅途中,这不过是一星飞逝的光点,一个静止的瞬间,将很快淹没在使命的海洋里。
Then Yoda and Oppo Rancisis emerged from the interior of the Temple. His gaze rested on Dooku only briefly, but it brought Dooku back to reality with a bump. His mood suddenly soured as he thought of the Jedi Council he would have to face.
这时,尤达和Oppo Rancisis大师出现在绝地圣殿外。尤达的目光在杜库身上短暂停留,但它猛地把杜库带回现实。一想到将要面对绝地委员会,他的心情又跌到了谷底。
The students quieted as Yoda approached. He stood in the middle of the group, nodding greetings at the familiar faces. He'd known them all since they were babies and had trained them all when they were younglings.
学生们渐渐安静下来。尤达走近他们,站在中间,向每张熟悉的脸庞点头问好。当他们还是婴孩时,尤达大师就认识他们,在他们成长为幼童后,尤达还亲自训练过他们。

"In an exercise know you do that every year the oldest students participate," he said. "Urban tracking, this year's will be. That this is a test remember you must. Yet graded you will not be. Take it seriously but lightly you must. Attempt to win you will; if you lose, enjoy it you may."
“一次训练,你们都知道,每年年长的学生们参加的,”他说,“城市搜索训练,今年将会是。这只是一次测验,你们必须明白。但被打分,你们不会。轻松而认真地对待,你们必须。努力去赢,如果输了,试着享受过程。”
The students smiled at Yoda's contradictions and fiddled with their training lightsabers. Everyone was anxious to begin.
学生们对尤达习惯性的倒装句报以微笑,每个人都轻轻拨弄着训练光剑,兴奋紧张地等待开始。

"And now, the rules," Oppo said. "You will be divided into two teams of ten. In a moment, your team color will flash on your datapad. Each team will have a different starting point. The goal of each team is to successfully bring a muja fruit from one of the fruitsellers in the All Planets Market back to the Temple by sunset. Team members can be eliminated only by one light touch with a lightsaber."
“现在宣布规则,”Oppo大师高声说道,“每10人一组,分成两队——你所属队的颜色一会儿会出现在数据板上。每个队起点各不相同,目标就是在日落之前,成功地从全行星集市上的水果商手里把一种叫muja的水果带回圣殿。一旦被光剑碰到,队成员就自动减少。”
The students smiled. They knew that no matter how easy it sounded, the actual exercise would turn out to be much harder.
学生们笑笑,他们心里清楚无论听起来多么容易,实际的训练过程将会异常艰辛。

"You must keep to the segment mapped out on your datapads. To cross the line is to be disqualified. Do you understand this?"
“你们必须在数据板地图上划定的区域内活动,如果超出界限,将视为出局,明白了吗?”
The students nodded, trying to conceal their anticipation. They all knew the rules.
学生们点点头,努力掩饰住他们的想法。他们早就知道规则。
Yoda nodded, letting them know that their attempts to hide their impatience hadn't fooled him a bit. "Perhaps wait you should until the sun is higher...." he began, his eyes twinkling.
尤达也和蔼地点头,向学生们示意,他们不耐心的小把戏一点也瞒不过他。“也许你们应该等等,直到太阳升得更高些……”他说道,双目闪烁着睿智的光。
"No, please, Master Yoda!" the students chorused the words together.
“不,求求你啦,尤达大师!”学生们一齐嚷道。

"Ah, then teams you will become. Look on your data-pads, you must."
“啊,分组,你们将会。看看数据板,你们一定。”
The students reached for the palm-sized datapads on their utility belts. Dooku's screen glowed blue.
学生门从皮带中抽出手掌大小的数据板。杜库的屏幕上闪烁着蓝色。
"Blue and gold, the team colors are," Yoda said. "And the captains are these: Dooku for blue, Lorian for gold. Waiting, the Jedi Masters are, to take you to your starting points."
“蓝色和金色,小组的颜色是。”尤达说道,“队长是,蓝队杜库,金队Lorian。等你们,绝地大师们在,带你们去起点。”

Startled, Dooku looked first at Yoda, then at Lorian, whose blank face showed how deeply surprised he was. Why had they been chosen as captains? Maybe yesterday morning they would have been chosen. Yesterday morning, when they were not suspected of stealing a Sith Holocron. Yesterday morning, when they were still Padawans in good standing.
杜库惊呆了,他先看尤达,又望了眼Lorian。Lorian茫然的表情流露出同样的惊讶。为什么他们会被同时选为队长?也许是昨天早晨他们就应该被选中了?就在昨天早晨,他们还没被怀疑偷盗西斯全息记录,他们还是名誉清白的学徒。
Dooku gripped his datapad, still reeling by Yoda's words. He had not yet completely figured out Jedi logic, that was certain.
杜库紧握着数据板,仍然对尤达的话摸不着头脑。他还没彻底弄明白绝地的逻辑,这点是理所当然的。

"Hey, Dooku, wake up!" Hran Beling grinned at him as he tugged on the sleeve of his tunic. "Is it a little early for you?"
“嘿,杜库!醒醒!”Hran Beling对他一笑,去拽他的袖子,“是不是起的太早了?”
"Jedi Master Reesa Doliq is waiting," Galinda Norsh said briskly. "Let's get started."
“绝地大师Reesa Doliq正等我们呢,”Galinda Norsh精神抖擞地说,“我们出发吧!”
Dooku noticed that the Gold Team members were all scrambling to board a transport. He hurried behind the other Blue Team members to get aboard their own transport. Reesa Doliq smiled at the students as they crammed in.
杜库发觉金队队员都在争先恐后地登上飞行器。他也赶快紧随其他蓝队成员登上他们自己的飞行器。Reesa Doliq大师微笑地看着正在登舱的学生们。

"Room for everyone," she said. "Don't worry, I'll have you at the starting point in no time. In the meantime, you can start on your strategy. "
“每个人都有地方,”她喊道,“不要急,我马上就把那你们送到起点。同时你们也可以讨论一下策略问题。”
The two transports lifted off. Dooku found that every Blue Team member was staring at him, waiting for him to begin. He was the leader, after all.
两架飞行器起飞了。杜库发现所有蓝队队员的目光都集中在他身上,等待着他开始。毕竟,他是领导。

He cleared his throat and looked down at his datapad. The map of the area they would be operating in flashed onscreen. Dooku was familiar with much of it. It consisted of the Senate buildings, several grand boulevards that he knew quite well, and the All Planets Market, which was held in a large plaza near the Senate complex. As a promising student of diplomacy, he had signed up for special tutorials in Senate procedure, so he'd had plenty of opportunities to explore the Senate grounds.
他清清嗓子,低头瞟了眼数据板。他们将要到达的区域地图在屏幕上闪现,大部分地区,杜库都很熟悉。它包括议会区,几条他相当熟悉的大街和离议会区不远,在一个大广场上的全行星集市。作为一名前途无量的外交学生,他参加了议会议事程序的特殊培训,因此他有很多的机会去探索熟悉议会地区。

Quickly Dooku scanned the map, trying to locate streets and alleys and space lanes. Everyone had to be coordinated and a strategy must be devised. They should spread out and each student should get a muja fruit. That would increase the odds of their win.
杜库迅速地扫视地图,确定街道,小巷和空间航道的位置。他们需要制定一个计划,分工配合。他们应该分散开来,每个人找到一个muja水果,那样做可以提高他们获胜的几率。
But why? Dooku thought suddenly. It was just what Lorian would expect him to do, so why should he do it?
但是为什么?杜库突然想到,Lorian一定料到他会这么做,那么,他凭什么按部就班呢?

"Our starting coordinate is Nova level," Galinda said. "That's good. There are many alleys there to hide in. And the gravsleds and truck transports will be unloading supplies for the market. We can use them for cover." She looked over Dooku's shoulder at the map.
“我们的起点是Nova水平线,”Galinda说到,“位置不错,有足够多的小巷藏身,许多运货商船又在这卸装集市商品,可以给我们做掩护。”她一边说,目光一边越过杜库的肩膀去看地图。
Hran Beling nodded. "We can pick the fastest among us to pick up the fruit."
Hran Beling点头表示同意:“可以挑选我们中身手最敏捷的去寻找水果。”
"They'll probably be staking out the fruit stands," Galinda said. "We have to get there first."
“对手很可能控制水果摊,”Ganlinda继续分析道,“我们必须先下手为强。”

"Maybe not," Dooku muttered, his head bent over the map.
“也许不会,”杜库嘀咕着,俯身看着地图。
"Do you have a better idea?" Hran asked.
“那你有更好的主意吗?”Hran问。
Dooku didn't answer. He was thinking. What would Lorian expect him to do?
杜库没有回答。他正在思考,Lorian会设想他怎么做。
He would expect me to race to get a muja fruit first. He would expect me to send three Padawans to retrieve the fruit, and guard them with the rest. If they all didn't make it, I'd send back two.
他会认为我一定急着第一个得到水果——派三名队员寻找水果,找到后留下其他人看守。如果他们都没成功,我将会撤回两名队员。
He looked at the map again.
他再次查看地图。

"Do you have a plan or, what?" Galinda asked impatiently.
“怎么,你有什么计划吗?”Galinda不耐烦地问。
Dooku looked up at last. "Yes," he said. "We're not going after the muja fruit at all."
最终,杜库坚定地抬起头:“是的,我们根本就不用去角逐水果。”
They looked at him skeptically. Dooku only smiled. He would bend them to his will. He would make them see his strategy. Because he knew one thing on this day: He had to win.
所有人都用怀疑的目光看着他。杜库只是自信地微笑着,他将会让他们服从于自己的意愿,他会让他们见识到他的胆识谋略。因为此时此刻,他只清楚一件事:他必须赢。
