In serca de Lorna

The search for Lorna

Daisy Hamilton a iera na detective privata. Ea vea trenta ani e a fea a detective da do ani.

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

Ogni matina andea in uficio  par spetar teefonae o verzar a porta ai clienti che i vea bisogno dei so servissi.

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

Daisy na iera 'ncora tant conossua ma dee volte qualchedun teefonea par l'insersion che ea vea mess sul giornal del paese.

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

Na matina verso e undeze uno el bate aea porta del so uficio. A iera na siora grassa che a vea na stoea de peicia intorno 'l col.

One morning at about eleven o'clock someone knocked on her office door. It was a fat lady who wore a fur around her neck.

"Bon iorno, posse iutarla?" Daisy a domanda aea siora. "Prego, a vegne dentro e a se comode pur".

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

"Oh sì voentiera! Varie veramente tant bisogno del so aiuto. Lorna, a me picinina no se a trova pì. No so cossa far."

"Oh yes indeed! I need your help desperately. Lorna, my little one has disappeared. I don't know what to do."

Daisy a ga dat aea siora grassa na cicara de cafè soeubie spetando i particoeari.

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

A siora grassa a sa sentà de peso e a mess a so borsa granda de curame ross suea scrivania de Daisy.

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

"Par piasser siora, ea me dise tutt..."

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

"Mi me ciame Edwina Humphries. Ho paura che i me domandarà schei  - ho paura che Lorna a sie stada rapia."

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

"Ma l'è terribie, siora Humphries. Anca el sior Humphries el pensa che Lorna a sie stada rapia?

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

"A me mario non ghe interessa gnent se Lorna a sie stada rapia o no!"
"Sul serio, siora Humphries? Ma so mario eo el pare vero de Lorna?

"My husband is not interested if Lorna has been kidnapped or not!"
"Really, Mrs. Humphries? But is your husband Lorna's real father?"

"No so cossa che ea intende. Ven comprà Lorna insieme", a ghe risponde a siora Humphries.
"Ve comprà... siora Humphries, no l'è permes daa lege, no lo sa..."

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

"No, in India no."
"Ve comprà Lorna in India?"
"Sicuro! E ea me tien sempre na gran compagnia, sa ea."

"No it isn't, not in India!"
"You bought Lorna in India?"
"Yes indeed! And she always keeps me great company, you know."

A siora Humphries a vea vert a so borsa granda de pee pa tirar fora un fasoett. Co do oci cussì Daisy a vea vist vegner fora daa borsa na creatura che ea se movea de qua e de a.

Mrs. Humphries opened her huge leather bag to pull out a handkerchief.
With horror Daisy saw a wiggling creature come out of that bag.

"Siora Humphries - ea meta via subito chea roba" a siga Daisy.
"Cossa? Oh Lorna - T'o trovà finalmente".
Dize a siora Humphries. "Te te scondea int ea me borsa - vigliaca."

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

"Siora Humphries, sta qua a sarie Lorna?"
"Sì, el nostro serpente del Bengala. Grassie sa ea. Pense de no ver pì bisogno dei so servissi.

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

Intant che Daisy a serea a porta dopo che a siora Humphries a iera ndaa fora, a sa mess in testa de ricordarse de dzontar a l'insersion: gnente animai, gnente serpenti.

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