ЗНАЕТЕ ЛИ ВЫ?

The young man went scarlet. He smiled stiffly in answer to Julia's warm,



Ready smile and she felt the palm of his hand wet with sweat when she

Cordially grasped it. His confusion was touching. That was how people had felt

When they were presented to Sarah Siddons. She thought that she had not

Been very gracious to Michael when he had proposed asking the boy to

Luncheon. She looked straight into his eyes. Her own were large, of a very

Dark brown, and starry. It was no effort to her, it was as instinctive as

Brushing away a fly that was buzzing round her, to suggest now a faintly

Amused, friendly tenderness.

 

"I wonder (мне интересно) if we could persuade you (сможем ли мы уговорить

вас; to persuade — убеждать, склонять) to come and eat a chop with us

(поехать: «пойти» и съесть по отбивной /котлете/ с нами). Michael will drive

you back after lunch (Майкл привезет вас обратно после ланча; to drive (drove;

driven) — водить (машину), ездить, гнать)."

The young man blushed again (молодой человек снова вспыхнул) and his

Adam's apple moved in his thin neck (и его кадык: «адамово яблоко»

задвигался по его тощей шее).

"It's awfully kind of you (это ужасно мило с вашей стороны)." He gave his

clothes a troubled look (он озабоченно оглядел свою одежду; trouble —

беспокойство, волнение, неприятность). "I'm absolutely filthy (я совершенно

грязный; filthy — немытый, отвратительный)."

"You can have a wash (вы сможете умыться; wash — мытье, умывание) and

brush up (и причесаться) when we get home (когда мы попадем домой:

«доберемся до дома»)."


 

 


 



 

The car was waiting for them at the stage door (машина ожидала их у

служебного входа в театр; to wait /for/ — ждать, дожидаться; stage —

сцена, подмостки, эстрада), a long car in black and chromium (длинная

машина /вся/ черная и хромированная), upholstered in silver leather (/сиденья/

обтянуты серебряной кожей), and with Michael's crest discreetly emblazoned on

the doors (и сдержанно украшенная на дверцах гербом Майкла: «и с гербом

Майкла благоразумно/сдержанно украшенным на дверях»). Julia got in

(Джулия села в /автомобиль/; to get in — входить, влезать).

"Come and sit with me (идите, сядьте рядом со мной). Michael is going to drive

(Майкл поведет машину)."
