 Розшук Лорни

 The search for Lorna
Дейзі Гамільтон була приватним детективом.

Daisy Hamilton was a private detective.

Їй було тридцать років, і останні два роки вона працювала детективом.

She was thirty years old and had been a detective for the past two years.

Щоранку вона йшла до своєї контори, чекала там на телефонні дзвінки або на прихід клієнтів, яким потрібні були її послуги.

Every morning she went to her office to wait for phone calls or open the door to clients needing her services.

Дейзі ще не була досить славетною, але інколи люди телефонували їй за оголошенням, яке вона подала в місцеву  газету.

Daisy wasn't very well known yet but occasionally people telephoned her from the advertisement she had put in the local newspaper.

Одного разу, десь біля одинадцятої ранку хтось постукав у двері її контори.

One morning at about eleven o'clock someone knocked on her office door.

То прийшла тілиста пані, шия якої була оповита хутром.

It was a fat lady who wore a fur around her neck.

"Вітаю Вас, чим можу допомогти?", - запитала Дейзі у пані. "Прошу заходити і сідати".

"Hello, can I help you?" Daisy asked the lady. "Please come and sit down."

"О, повірте, мені конче потрібна Ваша допомога.

"Oh yes indeed! I need your help desperately.

Лорна, моя маленька, зникла. Я не знаю, що робити".

Lorna, my little one has disappeared. I don't know what to do."

Дейзі запропонувала гладкій пані чашечку розчиної кави і чекала на подробиці.

Daisy offered the fat lady a cup of instant coffee and awaited the details.

Та важко опустилася на стілець і поклала свою здоровенну червону шкіряну сумку на стіл Дейзі.

The fat lady sat down heavily and put her large red leather handbag on Daisy's desk.

"Прошу розказати мені все, пані...?"

"Please tell me everything - Mrs. ...?"

"Мене звати пані Едвіна Гамфрис. Боюся, у мене вимагатимуть гроші. Боюся, Лорну викрали!"

"Mrs. Edwina Humphries is my name. I am afraid they will ask me for money - I'm afraid Lorna has been kidnapped!"

"Це жахливо, пані Гамфрис. А чи пан Гамфрис також вважає, що Лорну викрали?"

"That's terrible, Mrs. Humphries. Does Mr. Humphries, too, think Lorna has been kidnapped?"

"Мого чоловіка не цікавить, чи викрали Лорну чи ні!"

"My husband is not interested if Lorna has been kidnapped or not!"

"Невже, пані Гамфрис? А хіба Ваш чоловік не справжній батько Лорни?"

"Really, Mrs. Humphries? But is your husband Lorna's real father?"

"Я не знаю, що Ви маєте на увазі. Ми разом купили Лорну, "- відповіла пані Гамфрис.

"I don't know what you mean. We bought Lorna together," replied Mrs. Humphries.

"Ви купили........пані Гамфрис, ну, знаєте, це ж незаконно".

"You bought ............Mrs. Humphries, that's illegal, you know."

"Ні, тільки не в Індіі!"

"No it isn't, not in India!"

"То Ви купили Лорну в Індіі?"

"You bought Lorna in India?"

"Так, це правда! Доречі вона завжди складала мені чудову компанію".

Yes indeed! And she always keeps me great company, you know."

Пані Гамфрис відкрила свою величезну шкіряну сумку, щоб дістати з неї носовичок.

"Mrs. Humphries opened her huge leather bag to pull out a handkerchief.

Дейзі оторопіла, побачивши створіння, яке стало вюнитися з сумки.

With horror Daisy saw a wiggling creature come out of that bag.

"Пані Гамфрис заберіть це звідси негайно!" - вигукнула Дейзі.

"Mrs. Humphries - move that away immediately!" screamed Daisy.

"Що? О, Лорна, - накінець я тебе знайшла!" - зойкнула пані Гамфрис. "Ти заховалася в сумці, моя ти бешкетниця!"

"What? Oh Lorna - I've found you at last!" said Mrs. Humphries."You hid in my bag - you naughty girl!"

"Пані Гамфрис, то це і є Лорна?"

"Mrs. Humphries. This is Lorna?"

"Так, наша бенгальська болотна гадюка. Дякую, моя дорогенька. Думаю, мені вже не потрібні Ваші послуги!"

Yes, our Bengali swamp snake. Oh thank you my dear. No, I don't think I need your services any longer!"

Провівши пані Гамфрис за двері, Дейзі надумала, що не зайвим буде дописати до свого оголошення: "ніяких тварин і ніяких змій".

As Daisy shut the door after Mrs. Humphries, she made a mental note to write in the advertisement: no animals, no snakes.
