For pretence's sake he announced that he would wait no longer, whereupon Nicholas brought in his supper, and left him again to go and linger about the door, looking out into the night and listening for his master's return.
Принеся ужин, Николас вышел из столовой и отправился в холл. Открыв дверь, он некоторое время вглядывался в темноту, прислушиваясь, не идет ли хозяин.

He read it slowly, working his way through its thick parchment pages with deliberate pacing, letting his eyes linger on the gold edges and ornate calligraphy, determined that now that the book was opened nothing should be missed.
Он читал ее медленно, неторопливо перелистывая плотные пергаментные страницы, разглядывая золотые виньетки на исписанных витиеватым почерком листах и думая: «Раз уж я открыл книгу, нельзя пропускать ни одной мелочи».

Suddenly from out of the distance came a prolonged, resonant, almost wailing sound, one of those inexplicable sounds of the night, which break upon a profound stillness, rise upon the air, linger, and slowly die away at last.
Вдруг, где-то в отдалении, раздался протяжный, звенящий, почти стенящий звук, один из тех непонятных ночных звуков, которые возникают иногда среди глубокой тишины, поднимаются, стоят в воздухе и медленно разносятся наконец, как бы замирая.

'It was in the sweet days of youth,' she sang: every note seemed to linger plaintive and ardent in the evening air.
«Век юный, прелестный», – пела она; каждый звук так и расстилался в вечернем воздухе – жалобно и знойно".
