He pressed his mouth to hers. She was filled on a sudden with a faint disgust.

She had to resist an inclination to push him away. Before, to her passionate

Nostrils his body, his young beautiful body, had seemed to have a perfume of

Flowers and honey, and this had been one of the things that had most

Enchained her to him, but now in some strange way it had left him. She

Realized that he no longer smelt like a youth, he smelt like a man. She felt a

Little sick. She could not respond to his ardour, she was eager that he should

Get his desire satisfied quickly, turn over on his side, and go to sleep.

 

For long she lay awake (долгое время она лежала без сна; awake —

бодрствующий, проснувшийся). She was dismayed (она пребывала в

смятении). Her heart sank (у нее упало сердце) because she knew (так как она

знала) she had lost something that was infinitely precious to her (что она

потеряло нечто, что было бесконечно драгоценным для нее), and pitying

herself (и, жалея себя) she was inclined to cry (она чувствовала желание: «была

склонна» заплакать); but at the same time (но в тоже самое время) she was

filled with a sense of triumph (она была переполнена радостью победы:

«чувством триумфа»), it seemed a revenge (это казалось отмщением) that she

enjoyed (которым она наслаждалась) for the unhappiness he had caused her (за

все то несчастье, которое он ей причинил; to cause — быть причиной,

вызывать, побуждать) she was free of the bondage (она была свободна от

зависимости; bondage — рабская зависимость, рабство, неволя) in which her

senses had held her to him (в которой ее чувства держали ее к нему) and she

exulted (и она ликовала). Now she could deal with him on equal terms (теперь

она могла иметь с ним дело на равных началах: «условиях»). She stretched her

legs out in bed (она вытянула ноги в постели) and sighed with relief (и

"By God (ей-богу), it's grand to be one's own mistress (это здорово, быть самой

себе хозяйкой)."

They had breakfast in their room (они завтракали в своей комнате), Julia in bed

(Джулия в кровати) and Michael seated at a little table (и Майкл /восседал/ за

маленьким столиком) by her side (рядом с ней: «с ее стороны»). She looked at

him (она смотрела на него) while he read the paper (пока он читал газету). Was

it possible (было ли это возможно) that three months had made so much

difference in him (что три месяца настолько изменили его: «создали столько

много разницы в нем»), or was it merely (или просто потому) that for years (что

многие годы) she had still seen him with the eyes (она все еще видела его теми

глазами) that had seen him when he came on the stage (какими она увидела его,

когда он вышел на сцену) to rehearse at Middlepool (на репетицию:

«репетировать» в Миддлпуле) in the glorious beauty of his youth (в

сверкающей красоте молодости) and she had been stricken (и она была

поражена /им/) as with a mortal sickness (как смертельной болезнью)? He was

wonderfully handsome still (он все еще был удивительно красив), after all he

was only thirty-six (в конце концов, ему было всего тридцать шесть лет), but

he was not a boy any more (но он больше не был юношей: «мальчиком»); with

his close-cropped hair (с его коротко стриженными волосами) and weather-

beaten skin (и обветренной кожей; weather — погода; дождь, гроза, непогода;

beaten — битый, избитый), little lines (маленькие морщинки: «линии»)

beginning to mark the smoothness of his forehead (начинают обозначаться на

его гладком лбу) and to show under his eyes (и проявляются: «показываются»

под глазами), he was definitely a man (он определенно был /зрелым/

мужчиной).

He had lost his coltish grace (он утратил свою юношескую: «жеребячью»

грацию; colt — жеребенок) and his movements were set (в его движениях

чувствовалась скованность; set — неподвижный, застывший, твердый). Each

difference was very small (каждое различие было очень небольшим), but taken

altogether (но, взятые все вместе) they amounted (они были равносильны;

amount — величина, количество; to amount — равняться /чему-л./;

составлять /какую-л. сумму/; доходить до /какого-л. количества/), in her

shrewd, calculating eyes (в ее проницательных, оценивающих: «расчетливых»

глазах), to all the difference in the world (всем различиям в мире). He was a

middle-aged man (он был мужчиной средних лет; middle — середина, age —

возраст).

They still lived in the small flat (они все еще жили в той маленькой квартире)

that they had taken (которую они сняли) when first they came to London (когда

они приехали в Лондон в первый раз). Though Julia had been for some time

(хотя Джулия в течение определенного времени) earning a good income

(зарабатывала хорошие деньги; income — доход, поступления, прибыль) it had

not seemed worthwhile to move (казалось, что не имеет смысла переезжать;

worthwhile — стоящий, дающий результат) while Michael was on active

service (пока Майкл участвовал в боевых действиях: «был на действующей

военной службе»), but now that a baby was coming (но теперь, когда и ребенок

был на подходе) the flat was obviously too small (квартира была очевидно

слишком мала). Julia had found a house in Regent's Park (Джулия нашла дом на

Риджент Парк) that she liked very much (который ей очень понравился). She

wanted to be settled down (ей хотелось вселиться /и обжиться/) in good time

(заранее) for her confinement (перед /ее/ родами; confinement — тюремное

заключение, уединение, разг. роды).
