- Is not present, the major, here for all I answer, instead of you! Are you at itself there for all answer, and here - I, and the
charter I will not allow to break and I do not wish!.
- Listen, Konstantin Efimych, give easy...
Here voices go down, and words is not so audible, only - pacifying bolbotanie, and in the answer - short irreconcilable
vzrykivanija, and in a minute already again break and quarrelsome scratches, both angry vshrapy, and command, for the
present constrained, but already with a great effort, a gnash in drinks start to accrue. And again - vzryv:-... I have no right
without documents to pass strangers and I will not pass!.
- It not the stranger, I explain to you, it is a material!...
- Especially! Without documents - it is not necessary!.
- You can understand, the major what will be if I it in-time do not deliver?.
- I of it am not obliged to understand, I operate under the charter and under the instruction, and you, a companion the
colonel, this instruction wrote...
He listened and, it seemed to it, did not hear this vile cloth quarrel, and suddenly something has occurred: at some instant he
has suddenly seen turned to it in salon of the person, absolutely close, nearby, warped not that fear, not that fastidiousness, -
ruddy full person Sidorenki, with eyes round as at an owl, and the person new to it - the person of the driver, dark, long, with
the pressed through nose and pushed forward, as at an enormous trout, jaws. Both these untera looked at it scaredly and
with disgust any, apparently, as if it it is just noisy obgadilsja at everything, and the person of their chief, a companion of the
colonel, suddenly appeared there and then, in salon - eyes at a companion of the colonel now were guarded and resolute,
eyes of the surgeon aimed at the first cut...
And here he has understood that already some time - shouts. This shout (howl, a cry, rattle), all last days sitting kolom at it in
a breast, has broken, at last, as the furuncle breaks, and dense pus has rushed outside. He has heard itself(himself) and at
once has become silent. Persons hung before it, lighted up unnatural and dead prozhektornym light by which everything has
been filled in here, and the fear mixed with disgust, was replaced on these persons by bewilderment and irritation.
- Everything, - he has told it loudly. - all. Any more I will not be.
And there and then them have passed. As if its this cry has appeared last and solving argument in cloth dispute on charters
Then they quickly went on a long white corridor. On a silent white floor. Smelt as hospital. All here again too has been filled in
by ruthless light, and dry heat stood, and there was in this corridor something imperceptibly strange, - any strange people
along walls, or something in opened that on the right at the left doors, or in the plants braiding by places of a wall and a
ceiling, or, maybe, sounds any, at all here inappropriate, were distributed... Was not neither time, nor special desire to
understand all these strangenesses - it would be desirable to sit down somewhere in dark (necessarily dark!) To corner, or it
is better even to lie down, close eyes and to distract. But did not give to it neither to sit down, nor to distract - ahead widely
and powerfully a companion the colonel paced, and nearby (at the left and behind) someone iron fingers held for an elbow
and directed. All were already in white doctor's dressing gowns, white floors fluttered and parusili, the coat was gone
somewhere, the bedroom-slippers which have been not adapted for such rate, strove to be lost, and feet already any more
merzli, has become warmly and even hot.
