阅读晓荷的《赎回灵魂》选段,完成1-3题。

赎回灵魂 (Shúhuí línghún) Redeem the Soul

她睡到半夜,感觉到屋里进了人,很显然,不是丈夫,因为他去值班了。因为长期失眠,睡觉对她是件困难的事情。显然,那个人以为她睡着了。
然后,她看到了一个身影,手里拿着刀,在四处找东西。那一刻,她大睁着眼,内心出奇地镇定,因为绝对不能喊,隔壁就是儿子的房间,一喊,她和儿子就会有生命危险。她看到那个贼把手伸向她的首饰盒,那里面有一对玉镯,是最好的鸡血玉。但她一直沉默着,直到贼离开。
然后,她冲到儿子的房间,看到还在睡的儿子,眼泪就下来了。她知道,没有比自己儿子更珍贵的了。
然而,意想不到的事情发生了。
那个贼却被看门的保安逮住了——在他翻墙逃跑的时候。所以,他和两个保安又出现在她的客厅里。
灯光下,她看到了贼的脸。一张十分年轻的脸,脸上还有小小的绒毛,大概只有十五六岁的样子,眼神里全是恐惧。
保安问:“这是你的镯子吗?”
她答:“是!”
“是这个贼偷走的,就在刚才。”保安说。
她是知道的,她抬起头看了那个小偷一眼,那一眼让她呆住了,少年的眼里全是乞求,甚至是恳求,甚至是绝望。
那一刻,她的心忽然柔软起来。她有了新的决定。
她说:“你们放了他吧,他不是贼,那一对玉镯,是我给他的。”
保安大吃一惊,而少年的眼里全是泪水。保安刚走,那个少年扑通就跪下了:“阿姨,您为什么要救我?”
她笑了,淡淡地说:“孩子,因为你的青春比那两只镯子值钱,我想用那两只镯子赎回你找不到方向的灵魂。何况,刚才我并不曾睡着,因为你手里拿着刀,所以,我没有喊,也是为了我自己的儿子。”
那个少年泪如雨下。
