Las llamas naranja lamían y roían el carbón que le habían dado, siempre hambriento de más alimento, tiró del pestillo, abrió la puerta sintiendo una ráfaga de calor en la cara.
Orange flames licked and gnawed at the coal they'd been given, always hungry for more food. He flipped the latch, opened the door, and got a blast in the face.

Moví la cabeza y, ayudándome del bastón para no tropezar con las lápidas, volví a la huerta, donde me recibieron los graznidos de los hambrientos cuervos que estaban posados en los esqueletos de los árboles.
I shook my head and turned back towards the orchard, where starveling crows cawed in the skeleton trees; I was glad of my staff as I stumbled among the gravestones.
