Suddenly, a door clicks hastily behind me, the quick patter of feet, softly rebounding from the walls, the ceiling—and there she is—light, airy, somewhat breathless with running, breathing through her mouth.
Вдруг сзади торопливо брякнула дверь, быстрый топот, мягко отскакивающий от потолка, от стен, – и она, летучая, слегка запыхавшаяся от бега, дышит ртом.

Squeezing Virginsky from behind more and more tightly and convulsively, he went on shrieking without a pause, his mouth wide open and his eyes starting out of his head, keeping up a continual patter with his feet, as though he were beating a drum.
Всё крепче и крепче, с судорожным порывом, сжимая сзади руками Виргинского, он визжал без умолку и без перерыва, выпучив на всех глаза и чрезвычайно раскрыв свой рот, а ногами мелко топотал по земле, точно выбивая по ней барабанную дробь.

He had perfected his patter to the police, a certain obsequious innocence peppered with wonder about their procedures or useless ideas that he presented as if they might help.
Запудрить мозги полицейским – плевое дело: достаточно изобразить покорную невинность, приправить ее интересом к расследованию и с доброжелательным видом подкинуть пару бредовых советов.

'Coming, coming!' we heard in a little shrill voice; there was the patter of bare feet, the bolt creaked, and a girl of twelve, in a little old smock tied round the waist with list, appeared in the doorway with a lantern in her hand.
«Сичас, сичас!» – раздался тоненький голосок, послышался топот босых ног, засов заскрыпел, и девочка лет двенадцати, в рубашонке, подпоясанная покромкой, с фонарем в руке, показалась на пороге.
