       以前,听到这亲切的话语塞拉就会干劲十足。但此时,她已经明白这只不过是他随口说说的。他是一个鳏夫,一个只爱一个女人的人,强壮而专一。她在他心中无足轻重。她吧目光投向队伍的前面,注意到一个年轻女子。个子高高的,有着丛林女孩特有的那种漂亮,显得很健康,看不出有什么病,而其他人明显有病,他们拖着溃疡或腐烂的腿。她已经到了结婚年龄,但是从她平坦的腹部和小巧的乳房来看,她还没有生育。也许这就是她的毛病所在。
       一会儿,塞拉示意她来到桌边,在卡片上填上她的个人情况。“你哪里不舒服,娜丽亚?”
       女孩急切地从桌子上探过身子,说:“我要魔石。”
       “魔石?”塞拉皱起了眉头。她听到过包治百病的石头的传言,但那只是愿望的产物。“对不起,我们这里没有魔石。”看着女孩沮丧的表情,她真希望自己能为她做点什么,于是,又和善地说:“我想你最好去集市上看看。”
       “求求你了,”女孩的严重充满了哀求,“我一定得拿到魔石。”
       塞拉苦笑了一下,“真的很抱歉。”她示意杂役把女孩送出去。娜丽亚默默地走了,眼里充满沮丧。
       下一位是个被野兽伤害的那人。塞拉看着菲利普用袖长的手指检查伤口。他的动作那么温柔,和他做爱回事什么样呢?
       他突然抬头向她要一个药签,他们的目光碰到了一起。他的延伸深沉难测,她的脸倜然变得绯红,不知道他能不能读透自己的心思。六周钱她被分配到他这儿工作。生性害羞内向的她无法向他倾诉热烈的情感,只能逃避。
       “好了,这个不麻烦。”他在她端来的盆里洗着手说,“最好给他注射一针盘尼西林。”
       菲利普去处理下一个病人,塞拉准备着注射。她脑子里又出现那个年轻女孩的脸。魔石?如果有的话。。。
       塞拉是从培训班直接来这儿的。来这儿是为了逃离那个喧嚣的世界,是逃跑。开始的时候她很害怕,丛林个反差巨大的世界,有的地方和英国林区一样平和,有的地方则像哈默恐怖电影的场景。但是在这里她很安全,并且还有菲利普。。。
       遥远的鼓点声在娜丽亚的耳朵里回响,好像在警告她必须马上回去。可她还不能回去。
       他冒着班吉找不到她会发怒的危险,勇敢地穿过猴子林,穿过黑黝黝的树丛来到这里,又在正午的烈日下占了那么长时间,她不能就这样回去。
       她一直等着,知道太阳很快从天际隐退。从树下藏身的地方她看到护士和医生离开小屋,穿过院落,朝不同的方向走去。那个女人渴望的眼神追随着医生。
       一切都静下来后娜丽亚从乱树丛中爬出来,沿着台阶走进小屋。她点着灯芯草开始仔细地寻找,但没有找到魔石。她哭了。这时,突然有声音传来。
       “喂,怎么回事?你在这里干什么?”
       一名警卫穿着棕色的制服,牵着一只淌着涎水的狗。她蜷缩着。警卫上下打量着她。“你是贼!这里没有药品。跟我过来。
       塞拉被从床上叫了来,她认出是白天那个女孩。
       “但愿我能帮你。”然后她请求警卫。“不要把她关起来,我敢保证她不是贼。”
       “但这是我的职责。”他自命不凡地说。
       第二天早上,娜丽亚被带到法官面前,因侵害私人财产被判罚金。塞拉为自己无能为力而感到内疚,替她交了罚款。
       娜丽亚感激地冲她笑笑,但手腕上被捆的地方疼痛钻心,笑容很快消失了。
       塞拉愤愤地说:“这些人真是小题大做!来屋里我给你打一针吧。”
       女孩得由上显而易见,针被扎进去时她都没有出声。
        “你要找的石头是什么东西?”塞拉问。
       娜丽亚满怀希望地抬起头。
       塞拉摇了摇头:“给我说说那些石头的故事吧。”
       娜丽亚迟疑了一下,开始讲沃珂、玛赛尔,还有拉人罗农和眩晕症的故事。然后她谈了班吉,还有她自己。塞拉只听明白了一点:这个女人想生个男孩。
       “10天后你得再来找我,”塞拉说,“为了安全起见。”
       女孩一脸的茫然,不知道10天是什么意思。
       塞拉到外面拾了一把光滑的鹅卵石。“看,”她数出10块,放在女孩掬起的手中。“太阳每升起一次你就扔掉一块,都扔完了你就再来找我。”
       女孩跪下来,泪流满面。“魔石!谢谢你!太谢谢你啦!”
       塞拉一惊,继而爆发出一阵笑声。
       娜丽亚小心翼翼地把石头放进腰间的袋子里。“你和男医生之间也会有奇迹出现的。”他说。
       塞拉望着娜丽亚消失在奇形怪状的树丛中,对她的洞察力感到惊奇。她若有所思。信念是巨大的力量。也许现在娜丽亚放松了,更容易怀孕。这就是白人妇女的魔法!
       塞拉双手捧着这些鹅卵石,低声念着班吉的名字。
       丛林中双手捧着这些鹅卵石,低声念着班吉的名字。
       丛林中到处都是高大的树木,树皮上覆盖着一层寄生植物。树枝朝着遥远的阳光奋力向上伸展,叶子形成了一顶顶浓绿的树冠,给人造成一种管线昏暗的大教堂的感觉。她倾听者微风演奏的交响乐,她明白它的秘密。
       突然,另一个声音在塞拉背后响起。
       “你手里拿的什么?”
       她展开手掌。
       阳光从树枝间透下,撒在她的发际,为她容貌罩上一层醉人的色彩。他看着她,眼神温柔。“你真美。”
       她兴高采烈,激情溢于言表,把魔石的故事告诉了他。
       Once Sarah's spirts would hav lifted at the endearment but she knew by now it was unconsciously delivered.He was a widower,a one woman man,strong dedictated.She was nobody.
       Casting her eyes to the fron of the queue she noticed a young woman.Tall and jungle handsome,she appeared healthy enough.Whereas the rest of them had obvious diseases,such as sores and wasted legs,this girl's problem was not apparent.She was of marriageable age but judging by her flat stormach and small breasts had not given birthe.Perhaps that was it.
       Presently Sarah beckoned her to the table and wrote her personal particulars on a card."How can I help you,Nallia?"
       The girl leaned across the desk earnestly."I want the magic stones."
       "Magic stones?"Sarah's eyebrows arched.She had heard rumors of stones which were panaceas,but knew them to be the product of wishful thinking."I'm sorry,we have no magic stones here."Seeing the downcast expression and wishing she could help,she added kindly,"I think you'd better visit the bazaar."
       "Please,"the girl's eyes implored her."I must have the stones."
       Sarah gave a sad little smile."I'm really sorry."She signaled for the orderly to escort the girl away.She went quietly,eyes leaden.
       The next in the queue was a man who had been mauled by a wild animal.Sarah watched Philip's long fingers probe the wound.His touch was gentle and she fantasized about what it would be like making love to him.
       He looked up suddenly to ask her for a swab and their eyes met.His were brooding and unfathomable.Her cheeks flared unexpectedly and she wondered if he could read minds.She had been assigned to him six weels ago.Shy and introverted,she could no more tell him of her great passion than fly.
       "Well,that was straightforward,"he said,washing his hands in the bowl she brought."Better give him a shot of penicillin."
       He moved on the the next paitient while Sarah prepared the injection,still haunted by the young woman's face.Magic stones?If only...
       Sarah had come here strainght from training,it was an escape from the real world,a running away.She had been frightened at first.THe jungle was a world of contrast,in places as bengigh as an English wood,in others the setting for a Hammer horror movie.But she was safe here.And there was Philip...
       The throb of distant drums sounds in Nallia's ears.They pound out a warning but she cannot leave now.She has risked Benju's wrath when he finds her gone.She has braved the monkey wood with its nightmare trees.SHe has taood in line in the noonday sun.
       So she waits till the light fades quickly from the sky.From her hiding place under the trees she sees the lady nurse and the man doctor leave the hut and cross the compound.They part,each to go a different way.The woman's hungry eyes follow the man.
       When all is quiet Nallia creeps out of the tangled undergrowthe and climbs the strps into the hut.She lights the rush lamp and begins to search methodically,but she find no magic stones.She is weeping quietly when she hears the sound.
       "Now then,what's going on?What are you doing here?"
       He wears' a brown uniform and there is a slavering dog on a leash.
       She cowers.
       He looks her over."Thief!We don't keep drugs here.You'd better come with me."
       Sarah,fatched from her bed,recalled the girl.
      "I wish I could help you."Then she addressed the guard,"Don't lock her up.I'm sure she's not a thief."
       "I've got orders,"he said importantly.
       Nallia was brought befor the magistrate the following morning and was fined for treapassing on privatre property.Sarah,guility over her inadequacy,paid the clerk.
       Nallia smiled her grtitude and winced from a nasty sore on her wrists where she had been tethered.
       Sarsah swore."Really!They was no need to do that.Come to the hut and I'll give you aninjection."
       The girl's melancholy was almost tangible.She uttered no cry when the needle pricked her.
       "What are these stones you seek?"asked Sarah.
       Nallia looked up hopefully.
       Sarah shook her head."Tell me about them."
       Haitingly Nallia spoke of Oke and Masel.And the old man,Renon,with the fallingover sickess.Then she spoke of Benju.And herself,Sarah did not understand except that the girl desired a boychild.
       "I want you to come and see me again in 10 days time,"said Sarah."Just to be on the safe side."
       The girl looked blank,not understanding the meaning of ten days.
       Sarah went outside and scooped up a handful of smooth round peobbles."Here."She counted out ten and dropped them into the girl's cupped hands."Every sunrise you are to throw one of these away.When they are all gone you come back to me."
       The girl feel to her knees and tears streamed down her cheeks."The stones!Thank you !"
       A surprised laugh broke from Sarah's lips.
       Nallia carefully placed the stones in a pouch at her waist."You will make your own magic for the man doctor,"she said.
       Sarah watched her disappear form view among the grotesque trees and wondered at her perception.Faith was great force,she mused.Perhaps Nallia would rela now,making conception easier.White woman's magic!
       She weighs the prbbles in her hands and whispers his name.
      The trees abounding the clearing are majestic.Their barks covered with parasitic plants.They reach upwards to the distant light and their leaves creata a lush green canopy to give the impression of a dimly lit cathedral.She listens to the symphon the breeze plays and knows its secrets.
       There comes another sound behind her.
       "What have you got there?"
       She opens her hand .
       Ha watches as sun beams filter through the branches to play on her hair and bathe her faeatures with a heady glow.His eyes soften tenderly."You are beautiful."
       Her passions rish to the surface on a great tide of elation and she tells him about the magic stones
