!!
                                                                               
                                                                               
我往上盯著那塊東西。灰撲撲的那塊。
                                                                               
                                                                               
只能往上盯了,因為八枝竿子之間的地面,那一塊不大不小的區域,
                                                                               
顯然,
                                                                               
沒有任何能夠發出人類語言的物件被安置。
                                                                               
                                                                               
連什麼收音機麥克風都沒有,
                                                                               
放一隻狗都會太擠吧。
                                                                               
但總之就是空蕩蕩的,什麼也沒有,
                                                                               
只有八枝竿子之間的沙土,沙土。
                                                                               
                                                                               
聲音只可能來自上面,總結著八枝灰竿子頂端的那團東西。
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
到底是什麼東西??!!
                                                                               
                                                                               
正想著,
                                                                               
從那團東西竟然又傳來剛剛那 跩到有剩的聲音:
                                                                               
"We have eyes yet see not, ears that hear not, and hearts that
 neither feel nor understand."
                                                                               
                                                                               
幹你娘,竟然還給我烙英文。
                                                                               
那聲音非男非女,但年紀總不會很大,大抵距離"蒼老" 還有很長的年月。
                                                                               
從他說話喜歡賣弄知識這點來看,
他相當可能是那種自許為"高級知識分子"的書蟲,
沒事烙一點自己最近上課聽到的片段,或是自己寫不完論文裡面的論述,
                                                                               
                                                                               
就是在 "Good Will Hunting" 裡面在酒吧被麥特戴蒙電的那種人。
                                                                               
                                                                               
但是,現在的大學生都不太讀書了。
                                                                               
這傢伙,不管他是怎麼躲在那團東西上面的,
                                                                               
他想必也就是我最羨幕也最痛恨的一個學術階級,
                                                                               
研究生吧。
                                                                               
唸的不知道是昆蟲還是三小啦,
                                                                               
跑來海邊cosplay。
                                                                               
                                                                               
當然他也有可能是那種 無聊到爆的機械所或是電機的白濫,
                                                                               
做了一個巨大的八足遙控裝置來海邊實驗,
                                                                               
對昆蟲的著迷或許來自於最近的熱門卡通---"甲蟲王者"
                                                                               
在 放下對於死亡筆記規則的反覆背頌,
對於火鳳燎原和獵人261也
都失去了重達最後一根稻草的信心,
                                                                               
開始蒐集甲蟲王者的閃卡。
                                                                               
                                                                               
幹,有這種閒情逸致就把剛彈給我做出來啊,阿姆羅!
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
不管你符合哪一種,我都鄙夷。
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
令我在意的是,他彷彿在唸經一樣的英文語句裡,
 圓潤而流利,正確,有點點奇怪的腔調,
但你知道那種腔調的來由 不是因為沒學好 而是 學的太道地了
                                                                               
那不太像是迷上甲蟲王者或是阿姆羅的發音。
                                                                               
pardon my snobbery  但機率真的不高。
                                                                               
                                                                               
而文法相當的精練。說老實話,
殺了我頭,要馬上寫出這樣的文法也不能夠。
                                                                               
而他講的竟是那麼的自然。
                                                                               
就好像抽面紙一樣,
                                                                               
"咻"地一聲,就一句。
                                                                               
                                                                               
到底是為什麼啊?
                                                                                
             
而他烙的那段英文,言下之意,
                                                                               
也就是要我,打開眼睛和耳朵,去看你看見以外的去聽你聽見的以外的
                                                                               
東西。 眼見未必為憑那麼一個意思吧。
                                                                               
到底是不是這樣我也不清楚,我的英文可沒那麼好。
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
"管你是阿姆羅還是甲蟲王者啦,"
我想也不想的把我腦中亂跑出來,刻薄但頗具創意的名詞扣在這傢伙身上,
                                                                               
他一定覺得很奇怪。但我繼續:
                                                                               
"沒事弄這麼一個奇形怪狀的東西來海邊嚇唬誰啊?
 有空做那麼大而無用的東西,你乾脆把剛彈做出來算了!
 你以為這樣很屌是不是?告訴你,甲蟲王者是小學生在看的啦!
 研究生了不起喔?還不是來海邊"溜"你的濫東西! 醒醒吧!阿宅!
 書唸那麼多有什麼用!"
  "........"
                                                                               
沒有回應。
                                                                               
                                                                               
大約三數秒後,只聽得,輕輕的,
                                                                               
"huh~"那麼一聲。
                                                                               
那是一種從鼻腔發出的,和母音子音都沒關係的,
空氣的噴出。自鼻端。
                                                                               
"huh~"那麼一聲。力道則來自喉頭。
                                                                               
全世界都共通的語言。
                                                                               
                                                                               
意思也很簡單,
                                                                               
"輕蔑"。
                                                                               
那是輕蔑的笑聲。
                                                                                 
你笑這樣一聲,連剛果人都會想扁你。
                                                                               
                                                                               
我正想回話, 說時遲那時快
                                                                               
整團"機器"還真的像是八足動物那樣子走向我。
                                                                               
靈活移動的八肢,彼此不打架,不踩腳。
                                                                               
移行到我面前,在沙地上留下一排規律,絕不絮亂的"足跡"
                                                                               
上面那團灰悠悠的東西 抽不冷子 向下移降,
                                                                               
到我的視線高度。
                                                                               
                                                                               
一張臉。
                                                                               
                                                                               
"啊啊啊啊啊! 幹!"
幹! 我大叫。
                                                                               
那團東西仔細一看,原來是人類的軀幹。
                                                                               
"穿著" 一件鐵灰色襯衫,
                                                                               
襯衫的袖子連接的不是手,而是底下那八枝竿子的其中兩枝。
                                                                               
衣服的樣式其實挺流行的,走在路上常看見的型男款。
                                                                               
唯腋下多了兩個破洞,從破洞又伸出另外兩枝灰竿子,撐大,填滿破洞。
                                                                               
                                                                               
是個人! 我心裡打了個突!
                                                                               
一個長了四隻"手"的人! (我暫時還沒考慮到另外四枝灰竿子)
                                                                               
                                                                               
倒退三步!! 我。
                                                                               
                                                                               
前進三步,不,是3X8=24步!!! 他。
                                                                               
繼續維持著之前的距離。
                                                                               
但我已趁著這個空檔看見了那個"人"的臉了。
                                                                               
                                                                               
那不是一張人類的臉。
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
我卻撲吃一聲,笑了出來。
