Concurso de micronarraciones: La(s) ausencia(s). Inglés (12)

INSIDE A RED CAR…

Diana closed the car door and put on her seat belt carefully. She used to feel nervous at special moments in her life and she was worried about the last time she saw him when she couldn’t tell the truth to her husband. She was really feeling his absence and that was the reason why she had decided to be there.
Suddenly Diana heard the back door closing. A handsome man, around 30, with beautiful eyes and an amazing smile had come into the red car and was looking at her through the mirror. She felt her heart beating faster when he suggested going to the Liston Hotel.
Diana started the engine and started to drive on the streets too. She had been thinking about loads and loads of words to tell him but at that moment she couldn’t say anything. He could see her hand sweating when she grabbed the gear stick and he was thinking that she was really scared of the situation they were involved. Five minutes later, the red car arrived at Liston Hotel and Diana could hear the most expected words: - Congratulations! You’ve passed your driving test at the second chance and you can sign your driving licence.

Traducción


Diana cerró la puerta del coche y se puso el cinturón de seguridad cuidadosamente. Ella solía sentirse nerviosa en momentos especiales de su vida y estaba preocupada acerca de la última vez que lo vio, cuando no pudo decirle la verdad a su marido. Ella realmente estaba sintiendo su ausencia y esa era la razón por la cual había decidido estar allí.
De repente Diana escuchó la puerta trasera cerrándose. Un apuesto hombre, alrededor de 30, con hermosos ojos y una sonrisa sorprendente había entrado al coche rojo y le estaba mirándo a través del espejo. Ella sintió latir su corazón más deprisa cuando él sugirió ir al Hotel Liston.
Diana arrancó el motor y también comenzó a conducir por las calles. Ella había estado pensando montones y montones de palabras que decirle pero, en ese momento, ella no pudo decir nada. Él podía ver sus manos sudando cuando agarraba la palanca de cambio y estaba pensando que ella estaba realmente asustada por la situación en la que se encontraban. Cinco minutos después, el coche rojo llegaba al Hotel Liston y Diana pudo escuchar las palabras más esperadas: ¡Enhorabuena! Has pasado tu examen de conducir a la segunda y puedes firmar tu carnet de conducir.

  2. Thank you very much for your message. It's a pleasure to learn this amazing language from great teachers like you. I didn't have the faintest idea about the results until Javier had told me fifteen minutes ago. I feel glad and delighted to improve my English in this school and I hope to continue doing my best. Thanks again for teaching me. See you soon. Best wishes.
