Sonia, in confusion, gave a hurried, frightened curtsy. There was a look of poignant discomfort in her face, as though Avdotya Romanovna's courtesy and attention were oppressive and painful to her.
Сонечка смутилась, поклонилась как-то уторопленно и испуганно, какое-то даже болезненное ощущение отразилось в лице ее, как будто вежливость и внимание Авдотьи Романовны были ей тягостны и мучительны.

With hurried deference, Luise Ivanovna fell to curtsying in all directions, and so curtsied herself to the door. But at the door, she stumbled backwards against a good-looking officer with a fresh, open face and splendid thick fair whiskers.
Луиза Ивановна с уторопленною любезностью пустилась приседать на все стороны и, приседая, допятилась до дверей; но в дверях наскочила задом на одного видного офицера, с открытым свежим лицом и с превосходными густейшими белокурыми бакенами.
