No matter how much she had changed she could not improvise something that would take a lifetime to accomplish.
Независимо от того, сколь сильно она изменилась, она не могла импровизировать нечто такое, что потребовало бы целой жизни для своего осуществления.

What replaced them was a cold readiness, the kind that comes by itself, empty-handed and without plans, ready to improvise.
Их сменили хладнокровие и решительность. Какие приходят, когда рассчитывать приходится только на себя, плана дальнейших действий нет и остается только импровизировать на ходу.

But the night crawled on, the fire died away to a soft thread of smoke and the faint, faint smell of the covered meat in the improvised drying-pit, and she did not come.
Но ночь тянулась, пламя гасло, костер превращался в дымное пепелище, и уже попахивало слегка ароматным мясом от их импровизированной коптильни, а Райэнна все не приходила.

After this the Colombus troupe gave a short variety show with singing and dancing on an improvised stage, the point of which was to demonstrate how Vavila the peasant boy won fifty thousand roubles and what came of it.
Затем на импровизированной сцене колумбовцами был разыгран легкий водевиль с пением и танцами, содержание которого сводилось к тому, как Вавила выиграл пятьдесят тысяч рублей и что из этого вышло.

“Some of the lads having a laugh,” Rebus improvised. He kept flexing his left wrist, trying not to show how much it was flaring with pain.
— Мальчикам нечем было заняться, вот и решили они посмеяться, — выдал Ребус стихотворный экспромт, продолжая терзать левое запястье и стараясь не показывать, сколько боли причиняют ему эти манипуляции.

The white glow contracted into a frame, I stepped through it, and I was immediately grabbed by the shoulder and jerked sharply down to the left, onto the floor behind the cover of an improvised barricade consisting of several overturned tables.
Белое свечение сжалось в рамку, я шагнул в нее – и тут же меня схватили за плечо, резко дернули влево и вниз, уложили под прикрытием импровизированной баррикады – несколько опрокинутых столов.
