Spicy Love Soup

场景一
Scene One
嗯, 今儿这火锅太辣了!
Mmm..  The hotpot is really spicy!
是吗?我倒觉得正好。
Really?  I feel it’s pretty good.
唉,跟你说点正事儿。我爸妈说明天想见你。
Well, I have some thing to tell you. My parents said they want to see you tomorrow.
你怎么不早点跟我说呀?
Why didn't you tell me earlier?
他们也是中午才打电话告诉我的。再说了,早晚不是一样。
They told me when they called this noon; besides, it's the same (to meet them) sooner or later.

可我得准备准备呀。
But I need to get ready.
有什么准备的呀?
What do you need to prepare?
唉,我得想想,见了你爸妈我说点什么呀。要不要给他们带点什么见面礼?
Well, I need to think about what I should say when I meet your parents, and whether I should bring them some gifts.
你呀,什么都别带,大大方方去就行了。
Silly, you don't need to bring anything. Take it easy.
哎,你说咱俩这事儿,你爸你妈能同意吗?
By the way, do you think your parents will approve our marriage?
那可不好说,关键还得看你啦。
It's hard to tell. Depends on you.

(少年的画外音:
Voice of the teenage boy)
听我妈说,在我刚出生的时候很爱哭。有一天,她拿着一面小拨浪鼓在我耳边摇。听到扑棱扑棱的声音,我突然笑了。也许,也许就是从那个时候起,我被声音的魔力迷住了。我喜欢声音,喜欢把它们录下来,放给自己听。这些声音带给我无穷的快乐。直到有一天,我听到了世界上最美丽的声音。
My mom said that I liked crying shortly after I was born. One day, she shook a little rattle close to my ear. Suddenly, I burst into laughter when I heard the rattling sound. Maybe, maybe from that day on, I've been charmed by the magic power of sound. I love sounds. I love recording them, and then playing back to myself. Those sounds bring me endless joy. Until one day, I heard the most beautiful sound in the world.
(少女朗读:

清晨,我推开房门,一个洁白的世界映入了我的眼帘。哦,下雪了。鹅毛般的雪花漫天飞舞着,一切都显得那么纯洁而美丽,纯洁得几乎要把整个世界凝固。我不愿任这美景从眼前悄然掠过,便和同学们一起来到北海赏雪,想更多地留住一幅画卷 ,一种心情。我们走在厚厚的积雪上,脚下发出咯吱咯吱的声音。身后留下一串长长的脚印。

One morning, I opened the door. A pure and white world was in front of me. Oh! it's snowing. The feather-like snowflakes were dancing in the sky. Everything looked so clean and pretty that I felt time had stopped. It would be a pity if I didn't get any chance to enjoy the beauty of nature thoroughly.  Trying to record more beauty of nature in my mind, and keep the lovely feeling in my memory, I went to Beihai Park with my classmates to enjoy the snow scenery. The heavy snow creaked under our feet. Chains of footprints were left behind.
