He stared at me as if this announcement of his would have crushed me to the earth, but I smiled at him in my turn, and looked him up and down, with a twirl of my moustache.
Он поглядел на меня так, словно ожидал, что, услышав это сообщение, я буду как громом поражен, но я только усмехнулся и, покручивая усы, поглядел на него сверху вниз.

Her long little face sparkles all over, as if sprinkled with tinsel, and then a slow twirl of the Sunfish places their heads in the narrow clammy band of shadow the hull casts.
Ее маленькое вытянутое личико все искрится, будто присыпанное блестками; потом лодку начинает медленно разворачивать и головы их попадают в узкую полосу холодной тени от корпуса.

The more angry Papa grew, the more rapidly did those fingers twirl, and when Papa ceased speaking they came to rest also. Yet, as soon as ever Jakoff himself began to talk, they flew here, there, and everywhere with lightning rapidity.
Чем больше горячился папа, тем быстрее двигались пальцы, и наоборот, когда папа замолкал, и пальцы останавливались; но когда Яков сам начинал говорить, пальцы приходили в сильнейшее беспокойство и отчаянно прыгали в разные стороны.

So there’s no water heater and they’ve let the well go dry.” He dropped his voice. “I’ve asked the Taliban for money to dig a new well more times than I remember and they just twirl their rosaries and tell me there is no money.
Водогрея нет, и колодец высох. – Директор понизил голос: – Сколько раз я просил у талибов денег, чтобы выкопать новый колодец! А они и не почесались. Только теребят свои четки и бормочут, что у них нет средств.

How quickly do you think a twirl could make his way to all the landings, to open all the doors?

They seemed at first to be exchanging affectionate jokes, but soon Éva’s face clouded and I saw her pick up her fork and twirl it somberly between thumb and forefinger.
Насколько я понял, сперва они перекидывались добродушными шутками, но скоро лицо Евы омрачилось, и я заметил, как рассеянно она вертит в пальцах вилку.

I can imagine, too, how, thus interrogated, Jakoff twirled his fingers behind his back in a deprecatory sort of way, and proceeded to argue that it all the same, "Peter Alexandritch, we are in the right."
Воображаю, как отрицательно завертелись за спиной пальцы Якова при таком вопросе и как он доказывал, что "опять-таки дело наше правое, Петр Александрович".

If Drizzt, at that time in midroll across the table, had realized just how close his form had come to intercepting the twirling war-hammer, he might have had a few choice words for his friend.
Если бы Дзирт, перекатывавшийся в этот момент по столу, успел сообразить, в какой близости от его головы просвистит рукоять молота, он, несомненно, нашел бы множество теплых слов для своего ученика.

Roaring in pain, the dwarf sent his left arm in furious pumps, spinning the morningstar head in horizontal twirls, each connecting with the shield. So furious was his attack that the guard had to backtrack.
Взревев от боли, дворф завертел в левой руке кистень и несколько раз подряд треснул по щиту противника, даже заставив его попятиться.

Viktor languidly held out his hand, took the flowers, carelessly sniffed at them, and began twirling them in his fingers, looking upwards.
Виктор лениво протянул руку, взял, небрежно понюхал цветы и начал вертеть их в пальцах, с задумчивой важностью посматривая вверх.
