I got to work, washing myself first, then moving on to my clothes. I scrubbed at my shirt fiercely, wishing I could scrub out my memory of the past two nights.
Я принялась за дело – сперва помылась сама, затем приступила к стирке, яростно, изо всех сил оттирая рубашку, словно хотела стереть из памяти события двух последних бессонных ночей.

Beyond the lines of the dead, a broad blood-stained Arab spear cast aside in the retreat lay across a stump of scrub, and beyond this again the illimitable dark levels of the desert.
Далеко за чертой поля битвы лежало упавшее в кусты широкое окровавленное арабское копье, вероятно брошенное во время отступления, а еще дальше расстилалась темная равнина пустыни.
