The poor thing realised at last that she had got into a hopeless position and, more dead than alive with fright, on the fourth day she ran off in the dusk from her protectors to her lieutenant.
Бедняжка смекнула наконец, что закопалась в беду, и еле живая от страха убежала на четвертый день в сумерки от своих покровителей к своему поручику.

Meanwhile, towards the end of the day there was a perfect tempest in his soul, and . . . I think I can say with certainty that there was a moment at dusk when he wanted to get up, go out and tell everything.
Между тем к концу дня в душе его поднялась целая буря и... и, кажется, могу сказать утвердительно, был такой момент в сумерки, что он хотел встать, пойти и - объявить всё.

You used to visit gentlemen in the dusk for money once; you brought your beauty for sale. You see, I know."
Сами вы девицей к кавалерам за деньгами в сумерки хаживали, свою красоту продавать приносили, ведь я же знаю.

It was then that in the melancholy dusk of one evening I began rummaging for something in my little box, and suddenly in the corner I saw her blue cotton handkerchief; it had been lying there ever since I had thrust it away.
И вот тогда, как-то раз в грустные вечерние сумерки, стал я однажды перебирать для чего-то в моем ящике и вдруг, в уголку, увидал синенький батистовый платочек ее; он так и лежал с тех нор, как я его тогда сунул.

There was a time when he would sit up half the night, working at his desk, but of late years he has taken to going to his bed at the coming of first dusk.
Было время, когда он засиживался за письменным столом до полуночи, но в последние годы он привык ложиться спать с петухами.

Trees stripped bare of autumn color shone black and stark through trailers of mist that slipped like wraiths across the deepening dusk.
На деревьях почти не осталось листьев; в сгущающихся сумерках белесым призраком стелился туман, обтекая черные застывшие стволы.

And yet I'd seen her, in downtown Honolulu, in the dim dusk light.
Как бы то ни было – я видел ее, вертелось у меня в голове. Там, в пепельных сумерках на окраине Гонолулу.

"Well, is that Vasily Mikhailitch a fine man" Volodya asked his brother when they emerged, at dusk, from the booth, and pursued their way to Sevastopol.
- Что, он хороший человек, этот Василий Михайлыч? - спросил Володя у брата, когда они уже в сумерки вышли из балагана и поехали дальше к Севастополю.

As so often before, the dusk came down while we talked of Jones; we didn't make love a second time: the subject was anaphrodisiac.
Как это часто бывало, пока мы говорили о Джонсе, спустились сумерки; нас больше не тянуло друг к другу: эта тема действовала на нас расхолаживающе.

I was at home, it was getting dusk, and I was just preparing to go out. I had dressed, brushed my hair, scented my handkerchief, and taken up my cap, when suddenly the door opened, and facing me in the room stood Katerina Ivanovna.
Сидел я тогда дома, были сумерки, и только что хотел выходить, оделся, причесался, платок надушил, фуражку взял, как вдруг отворяется дверь и -- предо мною, у меня на квартире, Катерина Ивановна.

There was a knock at the door, and a footman entered to light the candles, draw the long brocade curtains over the windows as dusk deepened, and make up the fire.
Раздался стук в дверь. Через секунду в комнату вошел лакей, чтобы зажечь свечи, опустить тяжелые шторы и подбросить дров в камин.

Towards dusk my old friend always became nervous, susceptible and suspicious.
В сумерки наш старик всегда становился как-то особенно нервен, впечатлителен и мнителен.

White, lumpy face redder and redder, even through the dusk, little pale eyes squinting and burning.
Белое, мясистое лицо наливается кровью, так, что даже в сумерках заметно, бледные глазки прищурены и злобно сверкают.
