ЗНАЕТЕ ЛИ ВЫ?

Didn't just want to be seen with her.



 

She took a taxi to Tavistock Square (она взяла такси до Тэвисток-сквер). She

was pleased with herself (она была довольна собой). She was doing a good

action (она совершала хороший поступок). It would be wonderful for him in

after years (это будет так удивительно для него, годами позже) to be able to tell

his wife and children that Julia Lambert had been to tea with him (иметь

возможность рассказать его жене и детям, что сама Джулия Лэмберт пила с

ним чай) when he was just a little insignificant clerk in an accountant's office

(когда он был всего лишь незначительным клерком в бухгалтерской

конторе). And she had been so simple and so natural (и она была так проста и

естественна). No one to hear her prattling away (никто, кто слышал, как она

разговаривала; to prattle — щебетать, болтать, журчать) would have

guessed (не догадался бы) that she was the greatest actress in England (что она

была величайшей актрисой Англии). And if they didn't believe him (и, если бы

они ему не поверили) he'd have her photograph to prove it (так у него была ее

фотография, чтобы подтвердить /историю/), signed yours sincerely

(подписанная: «Искренне Ваша»). He'd laugh (он рассмеется) and say that of

course if he hadn't been such a kid (и скажет, что, конечно, если бы он не был

таким молодым: «ребенком») he'd never have had the cheek to ask her (он

никогда бы не набрался храбрости чтобы пригласить ее; to have the cheek —

иметь наглость, дерзость; cheek — щека).

When she arrived at the house (когда она подъехала к дому) and had paid off the

taxi (и расплатилась за такси) she suddenly remembered (она внезапно

вспомнила) that she did not know his name (что она не знает его имени) and

when the maid answered the door (и когда служанка ответит /на звонок/ в

дверь) would not know whom to ask for (не будет знать, кого спросить). But on

looking for the bell (но, в поисках звонка) she noticed that there were eight of

them, four rows of two (она увидела, что их было /не один, а/ целых восемь,

расположенных в четыре ряда, по два звонка в каждом), and by the side of

each (и со стороны от каждого звонка) was a card or a name written in ink on a

piece of paper (была /или/ карточка, или имя, написанное чернилами на

клочке бумаги). It was an old house (это был старый дом) that had been divided

up into flats (который был разделен на квартиры). She began looking, rather

hopelessly, at the names (она начала смотреть, довольно беспомощно, на

имена) wondering whether one of them would recall something (надеясь, что

одно из имен напомнит ей что-нибудь: «раздумывая, не припомнится ли /ей/

одно из имен»), when the door opened (когда дверь открылась) and he stood

before her (и он предстал перед ней).
