    The right foot 古惑仔凱文

      Years ago, one of the girls in a group I used to pal around with met a boy. He was new in town and seemed quite pleasant, had a pixie-like smile and was fun to be around. We welcomed him into our circle. Donna and Kevin became an item. Before long, Donna noticed a few things missing, but she was a woman in love and excused them away without telling anyone.

      In the meantime, her new love rented a room from another member of our gang, a local deputy sheriff. The deputy noticed something missing too, but he didn't excuse it. He confronted Kevin about some missing money.

      Kevin admitted he took it but said he thought he could put it back before it was missed, he was desperate and no one was there to ask. He said he knows it was wrong and he felt terrible about it, and said that if he would forgive him he'd put the right foot forward. The deputy forgave him.

      A few weeks later, Donna caught Kevin on a date with another woman. She was really hurt, but Kevin said he just wanted one last date to be sure he was in love because he wanted to ask her to marry him. He said if she'd marry him he'd be the happiest man in the world and he'd put the right foot forward from now on. Donna bought into that line too.

      A few days later Kevin disappeared, along with over $2,000 of Donna's money and the deputy's checkbook. He was caught 2 weeks later writing stolen checks. Donna's money was gone.

      When he came to trial, Kevin told the judge how sorry he was, and that he was anxious to make restitution. He said he wanted to put the right foot forward and turn his life around. He was sentenced to time served, probation, community service, and ordered to make restitution and undergo counseling.

      A few months later Kevin attempted to rob a bank. There was a high-speed chase and he lost control of his car. He survived a crash into a stone wall guarding a cemetery.

      Kevin was fond of saying he wanted to put the right foot forward when he was in trouble. He'd been saying it all his life. Kevin lost his left leg in that car crash. Now, the right foot is all he has to put forward.

      幾年前,我那幫姐妹中一名叫當娜的女孩結識了一個男孩。他剛搬到鎮上來,有著精靈般迷人的笑容。他很快就和大家打成一片,而且在我們的圈子堣]很受歡迎。當娜和凱文成了一對。不久,當娜發現不見了一些東西,但熱戀中的她並沒把失竊的事放在心上,也沒跟任何人提起。

      那時,凱文還從我們的一個朋友——本地的副治安官那兒租了一個房間。之後他發現丟了些錢,但他並沒有讓此事不了了之,而是直截了當地質問凱文。

      凱文承認錢是他拿的,但他說他以為能在別人發現此事之前把錢放回去,因為當時他的處境很絕望、很無助。他承認了錯誤,並對自己的行為感到羞恥。他說如果治安官原諒他的話,他將會改過自新。於是治安官原諒了他。

      幾週以後,當娜發現凱文跟另一個女人約會。她很傷心。但凱文卻對她說,那只是最後一次約會,好以此確認自己是愛她的,因為他希望當娜能嫁給他。他說,如果當娜願意嫁給他,他就是這世界上最幸福的人了,而且他從此會洗心革面,做到最好。當娜被他的話打動了。

      幾天后,凱文本人連同當娜的2000美元和治安官的支票本一塊消失了。兩周後當他用偷來的支票付帳的時被抓獲,但當娜的錢沒了。

      當凱文在法庭上接受審訊時,他對法官說,他非常地懊悔,很想把錢歸還給原主。他說他希望能夠洗心革面,從新做人。凱文最終被判入獄,緩期執行,他需服務社區,歸還竊款並接受心理輔導。

      幾個月之後,凱文企圖打劫銀行。他在飆車躲避警察追截的時候,汽車失控了,一頭撞到了墓地外的石暀W,但他卻大難不死。

      凱文在遇到麻煩的時候,總喜歡用洗心革面來為自己開脫。他已經這樣講了一輩子了。在那次車禍中,凱文失去了他的左腿。現在,他只能拖著殘疾的身體面對生活了。
