  Extinguishing the extravagant

  As Fire Chief McAllister used his extinguisher to put out the fire he couldn't help noticing that the extravagance of the interior of the club was extreme in comparison to the poor quality of the exterior. "It was a shame," he thought to himself, "that this place was burning down." He lifted his extinguisher to put out a flame on some eye-catching fabric. He knew, even if he was trying to save small pieces of the club, that the extent of the fire damage would require complete remodeling, a new facade, and an extraordinary sum of money.

  McAllister hoped also that the owners would be as extravagant as before. It had obviously been a fabulous place; the type that he had thought had become extinct. Anyhow, if they restored the place, he told himself, he would certainly return here to take his wife out to dinner.

  When he had exterminated the last threat of fire, the owners came in. The exuberant celebrations of previous days were forgotten as they felt the loss of each facet of their precious club. They had hoped that the damage would be only external, but now, as they extracted themselves from the ruins, they knew that they would have to start over from scratch.

  Looking at McAllister they extolled him for his extra attempt to save the club. McAllister apologized and shared his views that he would come back if they fixed the place up again. They both fabricated weak smiles and left, determined to rebuild again.


  读故事单词雅思词汇-扑灭奢华俱乐部的大火

  消防队长麦克阿利斯特用灭火器扑灭大火时,不禁注意到这家俱乐部外表相当寒碜内部却极其奢华。他暗自想道:“把这里烧毁,真是太可惜了。”他举起灭火器,想扑灭一件十分惹眼的织物上的火苗。他知道,即使他在努力抢救俱乐部的一些小物品,火灾造成的破坏程度将使俱乐部不得不彻底重建——建一个新的门面,需要一笔巨大的资金。

  麦克阿利斯特同时希望俱乐部的主人们还像过去一样奢侈。这里显然曾经是个极好的地方——他曾以为这种地方早已绝迹了。他想,只要他们修复这个地方,他无论如何会带妻子来这里吃饭。

  他消除了大火的最后一点儿威胁之后,主人们进来了。他们对他们的宝贝俱乐部各方面所受的损失深感痛心,昔日的欢歌笑语都成了过眼云烟。他们原指望火灾损失只限于俱乐部外部,但现在,他们抽身离开火灾留下的残垣断壁时,他们明白了他们得从头开始。

  看着麦克阿利斯特,他们表扬了他为抢救俱乐部所做出的额外的努力。麦克阿利斯特向他们表示歉意,并告诉他们——假如他们把这个地方修好,他会再来的。双方都强装微笑,而后各自散去,不过他们都下定决心重建这家俱乐部。
