 他說,真奇怪,你寫那些情色小說,但你竟然發不出這個字的正確讀音!

像Box,我時常都說成Boss。Sex,就時常說成Sess。或者其他。我們把這個字練習了很多遍,坐在九龍公園裡看著兩個練習跳拉丁舞的男女讀這個字。讀對了,我就得到一個獎勵。

然後我發現,刻意單獨讀這個字,一點也不難。但在對話中,在自然的無意識中,那個Ks的尾音,就總會悄悄地溜走。

那對練習跳舞的男女,落實地踏著舞步,one two three four five six seven eight,一直在大聲地數著拍子。我不知道他們在真正的舞池上,是否還能清清楚楚地數著拍子,大力的踏步。或我不清楚,當我要跟他吵架,或者在綿綿地說著某些細語,我是否還能發出那個ks的尾音。就如我寫的那些,當它們成為了生活的預演,到我面對面前真實的人時,我是否還能清楚地激動地跟他來一場美好的seks?還是,一切都會忽然自然地變成草草了事的,沒有尾巴的奇怪的發音?

不知道,但這種悄然的缺失,大概就是真實生活。
