'go away'?

Recommended Posts

杰声

I'm trying to write up a piece of coursework for my chinese degree which is basically creating a story from some random pistures we got.... very random pictures O_o

One of them happens to be 2 people being accosted by a dog which kinda looks like it has rabies. I want to write the person is telling the dog to go away but came up with:

玛丽说:“不来了!”

As I have absolutly no idea how to say go away that was the closest I could come up with. However, when I showed it to my mum she broke down laughing, apparently “不来了” is what a girl will say to her boyfriend when playing hard to get :oops:

She did write something down for me but its in traditional which I don't learn plus she scribbled it :(

I know the first part is 走 but can't figure out what the second hanzi is. Anyone got any ideas? ^_^

Can you tell a dog to 滚? That's 'bugger off', give or take.

Eh ... about the "滚" thing ... yes, if you say it in a commanding way, it means "bug off," "get outta here" but it can also mean "roll" and with a dog, I could also translate that as teaching it doggy tricks o.O
