ESL 294: It Only Rings When I'm in the Bathroom


Download


Uncle Harry had no answering machine because hardly anyone ever called. Most of his friends and relatives were already dead. He had outlived them all, even though he smoked and drank most of his life. So much for all their talk about clean living, he sometimes thought.

The only person who talked to Uncle Harry regularly was his nephew Teddy. Teddy called several times a week, just for a few minutes to say hello and see if everything was OK. Some days Teddy had to call twice or more because Uncle Harry didn't answer the first phone call. When he finally did get through, Uncle Harry would chastise Teddy for his bad timing. "How do you always manage to call me when I'm in the bathroom?" he would ask.

Tuesday morning, Teddy let the phone ring ten times. He then hung up and went back to work. That afternoon he called Uncle Harry again. Again, no answer. A couple of hours later, he called again. Still no answer. He called Ira, Uncle Harry's next-door neighbor.

"Hello," said Ira.

"Hi, Ira, this is Teddy."

"Hi, Teddy. How are you?"

"Oh, I'm fine, Ira. But I'm a little worried about Uncle Harry. I called him three times today and he didn't answer once. I don't think he could have been in the bathroom all three times, do you?"

"No, I don't think so," laughed Ira. "He does complain about that, doesn't he? Anyway, I'll go next door and see what's up. If he doesn't open the door, I know where he hides his spare key. I'll call you back in a bit, okay?"

"Okay, Ira. Thanks a lot," Teddy said.

A while later, Teddy's phone rang. It was Ira. He sounded shaken. "Teddy, I'm sorry it took so long. I have bad news. Harry didn't answer the door, so I used his spare key. He was dead, Teddy. I'm sorry."

"Oh, my gosh! That's terrible!"

"I called the hospital, and they told me to call the coroner's office. The coroner said they were busy, and wouldn't be able to make it here until tomorrow or the day after."

"What happened? Did he fall? Did he die in his sleep? Is he lying on the bed with a peaceful look on his face?"

"Not exactly, Teddy. He's lying on the bathroom floor with a look of surprise on his face. We can move him to his bed later. But right now I've got to go home, Teddy. I think I might be in shock or something. I don't feel right."

Chuông điện thoại chỉ reng khi tôi đang ở trong phòng tắm

Bác Harry không có máy trả lời điện thoại vì ít có người gọi đến. Hầu hết bạn bè và người thân của ông ấy đã chết. Ông đã đưa tiễn tất cả họ khỏi cuộc đời, dù ông hút thuốc và uống rượu hầu như cả cuộc sống. Vậy mà họ nói quá nhiều về cuộc sống tốt, đôi khi ông nghĩ về điều đó.

Người duy nhất nói chuyện với bác Harry thường xuyên là cháu ông Teddy. Teddy gọi vài luần một tuần, chỉ nói vài phút để chào và xem mọi việc có OK không. Có vài ngày Teddy phải gọi hai hay nhiều lần hơn vì bác Harry không trả lời cuộc gọi đầu tiên. Khi cuối cùng anh gọi được, bác Harry thường trừng phạt Harry vì không biết chọn đúng thời điểm. "Sao mà mày cứ luôn gọi cho tao khi tao đang trong phòng tắm?" ông hỏi.

Sáng thứ ba, Teddy để chuông reng mười lần. Rồi anh cúp máy và quay lại làm việc. Chiều đó anh gọi bác Harry lần nữa. Cũng không có trả lời. Hai giờ sau, anh gọi nữa. Vẫn không có câu trả lời. Anh gọi Ira, hàng xóm cạnh nhà bác Harry.

"Hello," Ira nói.

"Hi, Ira, Teddy đây."

"Hi. Teddy. Cậu khoẻ không?"

"Oh, tôi khoẻ, Ira. Nhưng tôi hơi lo cho bác Harry. Tôi gọi bác ba lần hôm nay mà bác ấy không trả lời cuộc nào. Tôi không nghĩ là bác ấy ở trong phòng tắm suốt ba lần gọi, anh có nghĩ vậy không?"

"Không, tôi không nghĩ vậy, Ira cười. "Ông than phiền như vậy, phải không? Dù sao, tôi sẽ qua bên đó và coi có chuyện gì. Nếu ông ta không mở cửa, tôi biết chìa khoá ông ấy dấu ở đâu. Tôi sẽ gọi lại lát sau, okay?"

"Okay, Ira. Cảm ơn nhiều," Teddy nói.

Lát sau, điện thoại Teddy reng. Đó là Ira. Giọng ông hơi run. "Teddy, tôi xin lỗi hơi lâu. Tôi có tin xấu. Hary không trả lời, nên tôi dùng chìa khoá khác của ông ấy. Ông ấy đã chết, Teddy. Tôi xin lỗi."

"Oh, chúa ơi ! Điều đó thật kinh khủng!"

"Tôi gọi bệnh viện, và họ bảo tôi gọi văn phòng điều tra. Điều tra viên nói họ bận, và không thể đến đây cho đến ngày mai hay ngày kia."

"Chuyện gì đã xảy ra? Ông ấy có bị ngã? Ông ấy có chết trong khi ngủ? Ông ấy có nằm trên giường với nét mặt thanh thản không?"

"Không hẳn, Teddy. Ông ấy nằm trên sàn phòng tắm với nét nhìn ngạc nhiên. Chúng tôi có thể khiêng ông ấy lên giường sau đó. Nhưng giờ tôi phải về nhà, Teddy. Tôi nghĩ tôi bị sốc hay sao đó. Tôi thấy không khoẻ."

Bác Harry không có máy trả lời tự động vì hầu như không bao giờ có bất kỳ ai gọi tới cả. Phầnn lớn bạn bè của ông và bà con họ hàng đều đã chết hết rồi. Ông sống lâu hơn tất cả bọn họ, cho dù ông hút thuốc và uống rượu gần như suốt cuộc đời. Hơi đâu mà để ý đến những câu chuyện về cuộc sống sạch sẽ chứ, thỉnh thoảng ông nghĩ thế.

Người duy nhất nói chuyện thường xuyên với bác Harry là Teddy, cậu cháu trai của ông. Teddy gọi cho ông vài lần trong tuần, chỉ trong một vài phút để chào hỏi và xem chừng mọi thứ có bình thường hay không. Có một vài ngày Teddy phải gọi hai lần hoặc hơn nữa vì Bác Harry không trả lời cuộc gọi lần đầu tiên. Cuối cùng khi anh gọi được, Bác Harry sẽ trừng trị Teddy vì đã gọi không đúng lúc. "Làm sao mà con cứ cố gọi cho bác khi bác đang ở trong nhà tắm chứ hả?" ông sẽ hỏi như thế.

Sáng Thứ Ba, Teddy để chuông điện thoại reo lên mười lần. Sau đó anh gác máy và quay trở lại làm việc. Trưa hôm đó anh gọi lại cho bác Harry. Gọi lại lần nữa, không có ai trả lời. Hai tiếng đồng hồ sau, anh gọi thêm lần nữa. Vẫn không có tiếng trả lời. Anh gọi cho Ira, là hàng xóm sát vách của Bác Harry.

"A lô" Ira nói.

"Xin chào, Ira, Teddy đây."

"Xin chào, Teddy. Cậu khoẻ chứ."

"Dạ, con vẫn thường, bác Ira. Nhưng con hơi lo lắng về bác Harry. Hôm nay con gọi cho bác ấy ba lần và bác không trả lời lần nào cả. Con không nghĩ là bác ấy có thể vào nhà tắm tất cả ba lần, phải không ạ?"

"Không, tôi không nghĩ thế," Ira cười lớn. Ông ấy không phàn nàn về điều đó, phải không? Dù thế nào đi nữa, tôi sẽ ra cửa nhà bên cạnh để xem có chuyện gì không. Nếu ông ấy không mở cửa, tôi biết chỗ ông ấy giấu chìa khoá dự phòng. Một lát nữa tôi sẽ gọi lại cho cậu, được chứ?"

"Được chứ, Ira. Cám ơn ông rất nhiều," Teddy nói.

Một lát sau, chuông điện thoại của Teddy reo lên. Đó là Ira. Giọng ông ấy nghe có vẻ run rẩy. "Teddy, tôi xin lỗi để cậu chờ lâu quá. Tôi có tin không hay đây. Bác Harry không mở cửa, vì thế tôi dùng chìa khoá sơ-cua của ông ấy. Ông ấy chết rồi, Teddy. Tôi rất lấy làm buồn."

"Ôi, Trời ơi! Thật là tệ!"

"Tôi gọi tới bệnh viện, và họ bảo tôi gọi cho văn phòng điều tra. Nhân viên điều tra bảo họ đang bận, và sẽ không thể điều tra bây giờ cho đến ngày mai hoặc ngày mốt."

"Chuyện gì đã xảy ra thế? Bác ấy bị ngã phải không? Có phải bác ấy mất khi đang ngủ? Có phải bác ấy nằm trên giường với vẻ mặt thanh thản?"

"Không đúng như thế đâu, Teddy. Ông ấy nằm trên sàn nhà tắm với nét mặt ngạc nhiên. Một lát nữa chúng tôi mới có thể chuyển ông ấy vào giường. Nhưng tôi phải về nhà ngay bây giờ, Teddy. Tôi nghĩ có thể tôi đang bị sốc hoặc vì chuyện gì đó. Tôi cảm thấy không được khoẻ."
