en-es  Smith - Chapter 9 Easy
"¡No! ¡No! ¡No es verdad!" Dijo la señorita Mansfield. "¡Es un error, señor! ¡No era este chico!".

"Era el mismo chico", dijo el abogado, "Lo vi desde mi ventana en Curtis Court. Tenía un cuchillo en la mano y mató al señor Field. Luego salió corriendo".

La voz del señor Billing era tranquila, pero sus ojos eran fríos y crueles. La señorita Mansfield gritó "¡No!", otra vez, y la cara del Sr. Billing cambió rápidamente. Sus palabras no eran ciertas, y por un momento lo sintió mucho. Era el final de su amor, y lo sabía.

Smith gritó, "¡Está loco! ¡Está loco, Sr. Billing! Nunca toqué al anciano. Nunca, nunca, nunca ... ¡Está equivocado! No lo maté. ¡Dígaselo!".

"Tengo razón, Smith. Te vi. Lo sé".

Smith corrió hacia la señorita Mansfield. "¡Señorita! ¡Usted me conoce! No lo hice. Me cree, señorita, ¿no es cierto?".

Ella lo miró y luego miró al señor Billing. "¡Oh, Smith!", dijo. "¿Qué debo creer?".

Smith se volvió hacia su padre. "¡Señor Mansfield! ¡Usted sabe que no lo hice! Usted me conoce, y yo lo conozco. ¡No es cierto!".

El rostro del magistrado estaba serio y no respondió.

"¡Señor Mansfield! ¡Usted tiene que saber! Tiene que creerme. ¡Yo no lo hice! Fueron los dos hombres de traje marrón, y...". "¿Dos hombres de traje marrón?".

"¡Sí! ¡Sí! Y...". "¿Sabías que lo habían matado?", preguntó el señor Mansfield.

"Yo..., yo...". "Pero en una oportunidad dijiste que no lo habías visto. Dijiste que tu amigo te lo había dicho".

Smith no podía cambiar sus propias palabras. Ahora le quitaban su oportunidad.

El magistrado continuó con suavidad: "Entonces..., entonces... lo mataste.

¿Qué mano usaste, Smith? ¿Sostuve la misma mano esa noche, en la calle? Pensé que era una mano pequeña y amable. ¡Dime, Smith! Las personas buenas y malas son iguales para mí".

"Usted es un anciano ciego", dijo Smith con tristeza. "Pero no pensé que su corazón también era ciego".

"Tienes que ir a Newgate Gaol y esperar tu juicio".

"¡Juicio!", gritó Smith. "¿Para qué quiere un juicio? ¡Ya ha dicho que yo maté al anciano! Ya me pueden entregar al verdugo, señor magistrado Mansfield".

"Smith...". "Yo no lo maté, señor Mansfield".

"Tendrá un juicio justo...". "... ¡Y después la horca!".

"¡Smith!"

Las personas del número siete de Vine Street estaban muy enojadas con Smith. La cocinera dijo: "¡Un criminal en la casa!". Los lacayos lo empujaron dentro del coche. Solo Meg fue amable con él. "Te visitaré en Newgate, querido", le dijo. "Te llevaré buena comida. No tengas miedo, pequeño Smith. ¡Meg no te olvidará!".

El señor Billing fue con Smith a la cárcel. Estaban solos en el carruaje. En los ojos del abogado había una mirada cruel.

"Dámelo, chico", dijo el señor Billing. "¡No hay mucho tiempo! Quiero el documento del anciano. Dámelo...y puedes marcharte".

"No lo tengo", dijo Smith.

"¿Dónde está?".

"No lo sé".

"Escucha, Smith. Te creo y quiero ayudarte. No estoy loco. Ahora soy tu mejor amigo. Pero debes ayudar a encontrar ese documento".

"¿Por qué?".

"Porque es tu única oportunidad. Si no lo tengo, te colgarán. Ahora, guarda silencio, si quieres. Te visitaré y hablaremos de nuevo. Espero que me lo digas".

Smith no respondió. No era su día de suerte. Podía leer; pero no tenía el documento. E iba a ir a la cárcel por él.
