Billy was in big trouble. The day before, a donor gave the school a painting with a sports theme. It showed a referee congratulating two athletes. The principal hung the painting in front of the office, hoping that it would be a stimulus for students to play sports. The next morning, however, the painting was destroyed. There was graffiti on it, and it had many holes in it. The worst part was that one of Billy's fellow students said she thought she saw Billy do it!

比利有大麻烦了。前一天,一位捐赠者送给学校一幅以体育为主题的画。画上是一名裁判正在祝贺两名运动员。校长把这幅画挂在办公室前面,希望它能鼓励学生们锻炼。然而,第二天早上,这幅画被毁了。上面有涂鸦和很多洞。最糟糕的是,比利的一个同学说她看到这是比利干的!

But Billy didn't do it. The principal called Billy's parents and said, "Billy won't tell us the truth. He's a chronic liar, and he ruined the painting. If you don't pay for it, we'll terminate his education here."

但这并不是比利做的。校长打电话给比利的父母说:“比利不会承认的,他是个惯于说谎的人,他毁了这幅画。如果你们不赔偿,那就让他退学。”

Billy's parents didn't have enough money to pay for the painting and for his tuition. But Billy's parents had an idea. That afternoon, they went to see Mr. Meyers, an attorney.

比利的父母没有足够的钱支付这幅画和他的学费,但是他们想到了一个主意。那天下午,他们去见了律师迈耶斯先生。

Mr. Meyers, my son has been implicated in a crime he says he didn't do, Billy's father said. "Everybody believes the gossip. Even some of our own kin think he did it!"

“迈耶斯先生,我儿子卷入了一桩冤案,”比利的父亲说。“每个人都相信流言蜚语。甚至我们的一些亲戚也认为是他干的!”

I believe you. My suspicion is that the tape from the security cameras will show who really did it, said Mr. Meyers.

“我相信你。我猜学校的监控已经记录下了一切。,”迈耶斯说。

The next day, Mr. Meyers received a packet with the videotape from the school. It showed another student who resembled Billy walking up to the painting and writing on it. Then the student took a knife by the shaft and started to stab large holes in it. Finally, he severed the rope that held up the painting, and it fell to the floor.

第二天,迈尔斯先生收到了学校寄来的一个装有录像带的包裹。照片中,一个长得很像比利的学生走向那幅画,在上面涂鸦。然后,这个学生拿起一把小刀,在上面戳了一个大洞。最后,他割断了挂画的绳子,画掉到了地上。

Mr. Meyers showed the tape to the principal. "Clearly, that's not Billy," he said. "This boy is actually responsible and needs some discipline."

迈耶斯先生把录音带给校长看。“很明显,那不是比利,”他说。“真正的罪魁祸首是这个学生,他应该受罚。”
