English term or phrase: I am cramped on the bed, my feet tucked under me, the bed curtains drawn tight
I am writing this by the light of a candle. My right hand is painful, a thin burn running diagonally across the palm, and I am cramped on the bed, my feet tucked under me, the bed curtains drawn tight to make sure that there is no possibility, absolutely no possibility, of any light escaping into the alley. Shujin sits opposite me, mortally terrified by what has happened tonight, clutching the curtains closed and shooting glances over her shoulder at the candle. I know she would rather I had no light at all, but tonight of all nights I have to write. I have an over-whelming sense that any history written in these days, however small and inconsequential, will one day be important. Every voice will count because no one person will ever contain or calibrate Nanking’s story. History will fail, and there will be no definitive Nanking invasion.

我蜷缩在床上,双脚压在身下,将床帐紧紧拉住,防止有人在胡同看到这里发出的光线,不,绝对不能让任何人看到这里有光线。
