girl! hairdo, make-up andperfume are not important! youth is the main beauty! nonsense! youth doesn’t mean anything! this is not a problem thatthis girl hasn’t got lucky with both face andfigure. the problem is that there is no brainin this ugly head. a clever woman may be abeauty even… with such makings. do you really think so? well? will you talk to thecomrade or shall i close him in?

captain, why close in? this is not a problem.we’ll find a pretext. vesta, my beauty! when i took her, she was as big as a loaf of bread! i bought her at the policebreeding house, from snigirev. will you have some tea? don’tstand like a stump, sit down! no, i won’t. a summer cottagewas robbed, the konovalovs’, i have to go there. this is it!shall i take him with me? let him live! he seems to bea normal guy. he has a dog too.

this is gzhel. yes. what? my dad collects the brand. ‒‚ i beg you pardon.‒‚ this is ok. did you quarrel? well… i had no wish to quarrel with her. however, she triggeredscandals often. such scenes! what scenes? yulia is an incredible person.

she is a genius when it comes toparasitizing on her troubles. we had a classmate…a student of the same year. vlad, our top student.he helped her write her thesis. and she gave him into the dean. just so! what for? she said that he was selling theses. did he? what difference does itmake? this is not important! her deed is, though! i feelsorry for the boy. he was good.

he tried entering theinstitute to study for free three times in a row,and then he was expelled. his heart failed and hegot into the hospital. how could she do such a thing? i also had troubles because of her. there are such people, unfortunately… do you want some more tea? no, thank you… yes, babkin… this is it!

lena, you forgot to take your medicine. later, mum. no, now! yes, thank you. is it your interview? yes, it is. what can one talk witha former model about? i doubt that they can read. what? who?

the models. i see. you stayed at her place for so long… i started to worry.i wanted to call you. mum, konetskaya is an incredible person. she has such zest to life!almost like an animal. she offered me to havedinner with her, so… and i cooked your favorite custard pie. mum, i’m, sorry. i couldn’t refuse her.

i don’t think anybody can. do you know how she eats? i don’t dined with her, not me. she is eating as if she is hungry.however, she tries to hide it. i’m sure that she orders bloody steaks. ugh! bloody steak… bloody steak… good girl! how awful! bloody steak…

there is something froman animal in her indeed. it is attractive. i’m surethat she has a load of admirers. i shall ask her abouther admirers next time. will you go to her again? yes. i want to get toknow more about her. maybe i’ll write a seriesof articles about her. what about a book? or did you decide tonever write a novel again? i don’t know, mum.i talked to konetskaya, and…

i don’t know now. i see. go on, work! i’m working, i am working… vesta, don’t pull me!come here, lord! i told her that i could speak to myacquaintance and he would hire her. “no, no, no need to,everything is fine”… did she have money? what money? her father usedto give her some kopeks. he stopped supporting herafter they had quarreled.

so… yes, i fed her, if you mean it.however, this is nothing. i didn’t mind. i canunderstand any situation. however, she could havebehaved more politely. i come from the instituteand see her things lying about the apartment,some orange and tangerine rinds… i gather the mess…i don’t mind cleaning, but… she was making rows! is that normal? i don’t get it. did she make a rowbecause you started cleaning?

yes. i cleaned the carpet and the sofa. it violated her personal space…in my house! is that normal? she was standing all white,her eyes were mad, she was shouting soloud! it was terrible! i couldn’t sleep at night after that.i was lying thinking: “what if she is mental? whoknows what she is up to”? i came up to her in themorning and asked her calmly: “yulia, could you please leave”? do you know where she went?

thanks god, no! you know what?i’m not interested at all! the subscriber can’t bereached at the moment. be quiet, be quiet. what’s the matter? sleep, sleep. sleep, girl. lie down. vasya, where are you going? nowhere. damn it. nowhere. sleep. hey! hi. how are you? what are you doing here?

i called you but you wouldn’t answer. are you crazy? you’ll wake mum up. i forgot about mum. it’s weird that she doesn’tclose you in a box for a night. did you say what you wanted? i’m sorry. stop it. can we talk like normalpeople? just for five minutes. ‒‚ take the foot away!‒‚ just five minutes, ok?

take the foot away! this is it. take yourhand away, there you go. all right. let’s do it. lena, what’s the matter? ‒‚ why did you stop writing?‒ what? you used to write a novelabout some physicist. you wanted to finishit as soon as possible. look, vasya. did you comein the middle of the night to get to know why istopped writing a novel?

i did. you could have askedat the editorial office. wait. you didn’t want to talk to me. look, vasya, what doyou care about my novel? i’m surprised myself.however, i fell something… stop it, i tell you. hands off! you look unwell. no, i didn’t mean’re dull and as if lifeless. one could catch fire of you before.

your eyes were shiningwhen you were talking about that physicist.he had a weird surname… with many consonants. shtadrtman. albert shtadrtman. you said that he was always walkingwith his notebook in his hands, he was writing withoutwatching his step. everybody was afraid that hemight fall into an open manhole one day and break his neck. vasya, don’t do it, will you?

why did you stop? vasya, i need an inhalation, go! be quiet, calm down! this is don’t need an inhalator. breathe, breathe! breathewith your diaphragm. this is it. do you see? talk to me. i don’t want to. you want to tell me about want somebody to help you. you want to write again. remember! you’re sitting and writing anovel that was almost ready.

it was ready. all the more so! what happened next? i was walking to the publishing house.i was holding my novel. it was in march. i passed a newspaper stand.i saw his photo. whose? whose photo was it? lena, what happened?i woke up but didn’t see you. this is it. everything is fine. good evening. goodevening, olga petrovna. i don’t know when it is eveningfor you, vasiliy. it is night for us.

vasya, go! calm down… lena, stand up! get off! here you go. don’t worry. do you see what you’ve done? leave and don’t come here again. go, vasya. did i say something unclear? good night, olga petrovna.

everything is fine. yes. everything is fine… fine… i thought that you and vasiliy broke up. we did, mum. why did he come in themiddle of the night, then? he just wanted to talk. this is none of my business, of course. however, i don’t want him to hurt you. men can do that. when you father left…

mum, stop it! he just wanted to get toknow why i stopped writing, of course! one hundredthousand is a large amount. what hundred thousand? here you go. read! i thought that you knew. one hundred thousand… let me make a goldeneye for you. we could watch somegood movie after that.

they lived poorly. tatyana was proud. she never asked anybody about anything. you know, it’s not a way out to be proudwith a child on your hands. first, she managed… are these things hers? yes, of course. she got worse later. she slipped into depression.when yulia was about 10… tatyana got bad enoughto attempt a suicide. she cut her veins in the bathroom…

i see. i can understandwhy they took her to the mental hospital. yes. they explainedto us that any person who attempted a suicide issent to the mental hospital. yes, i know. how did it happen… oleg borisovitch didn’thelp them, did he? no, he didn’t. you know,he was never interested in yulia and tatyana didn’task him about anything. she was trying not to hear about him. she used to say that hewas a terrible person.

i was very surprised later,when he came to the funerals. he was a polite and amicable man. he paid for everything,took yulia and left. a polite and amicable…nevertheless, she was afraid of him. it seemed so. yulia lookedvery much like her father. tatyana was scared of that.when tatyana got to know that yulia wrote to her father,she suffered a nervous breakdown. she was shouting that “you’llonly communicate with him over my dead body”! thisis what eventually happened.

yes. she is a good girl, martha.i think you shall give her a chance. why? because people deserve a chance. you did many silly thingswhen you were young. do you know what your main problem is? you’re ready to forgiveeverybody anything. this is the root of all your problems. will you think about it?promise me to think about it!

i will think about it. you did well! you gavea great performance! what are you talking about? i mean this story withthe perfume and the rest. you did it on purpose, didn’t you? you started to cry and playeda fool. “martha rudolfovna, you’re so beautiful!i wanted to be like you!” martha rudolfovna willfall for it, no doubt! did you hear is all?

do you think they won’t throw me away? of course, they won’t! she’lllove you even more after this. one doesn’t know what is better, though… good-bye. yes. good-bye. one second,makar! i almost forgot. there is a photo here. a photo… she is beautiful. who is she? i don’t know. she is sometatnya’s distant relative from moscow. she is eitheran actress or a model.

do you remember her name? i think magda… no, no.martha. martha konetskaya. are you still here? but, martha rudolfovna… mansurov sent me aninvitation to his exhibition. will you go? i don’t know. i haven’t decided yet. do you really want to be beautiful? i think i’ll give you a chance.i’m interested to see

what will come out of it. even more so… i’m ready to work with you… i don’t know, martharudolfovna. thank you! don’t thank me. thank valentina. she defended you.are you satisfied, valya? very much so! yulenka, you shalllisten to martha rudolfovna. if somebody knows somethingabout beauty, she is the one. i got to know that sakharovahad an aunt in moscow – martha konetskaya. sheused to be either an actress

or a model in her youth. i sent allthe data to your e-mail. all right, bye! stand still! hands on the car! be quick! what’s the matter?guys, what’s wrong? hands behind you! behind you! behind! calm down. what’s the matter? what has happened? what is your problem? go! go! are you crazy? hold this!

move it! sign here! captain, whatshall i do with the drunk? we’ll sort it out. a night ward was killedin the hospital tonight. did you do it? comrade captain, comradecaptain? may i have a call? i told you that youshouldn’t have come here. wait! comrade captain! damn you!

look at how cool sakharova’s auntie is! what shall we do with this now? the subscriber can’t bereached at the moment… i would like to knowwhere that subscriber is. lidia yuryevna, please look here. is one of these peoplea man who was trying to illegally obtainsakharova’s medical history? this one, on the right. sign here and be free.

‒‚ thank you.‒‚ good-bye. good-bye. next one! be careful! did you manage to see a personentering the hospital building? it was dark there. can you identify him?is he among these people? this one, on the outside. turn around. very good. walk a bit. go back!

try straightening your back. this is a difficult case. everything should be radically changed. remember one thing, my girl.there is fleeting beauty – one looks, getsimpressed and this is it. one is not interested anymore. however,there is another type of beauty. it’s when you want tokeep looking at somebody. a person might have abig nose, small eyes, and stuck-out ears…

this is real beauty! this is what we can make out of you! why do you think thatit is something criminal? maybe some otheragency outbid dubrovina. she would have told me. you’re so nave, vasya! how do you think it happened? did our competitors paidher for her to stop writing? why not?

this is silly, borya. why take a bestsellingauthor out of the market? she is scared. somebodyscared her to death. do you want to say that shedescribed somebody exactly? some real crime?and somebody scared her. i don’t know. maybe. stop it, vasya. it onlyhappens in cheap novels. she was talking about some physicist… with a terrible surname. str… stranman.

shtadrtman? yes. albert shtadrtman, you’re right. she made him her mainhero in her new novel. this surname rings a bell.i know! we published his obituary. an obituary? yes. he died in january. there was some sillystory concerning his death. when did you see thisperson entering the hospital? i told you… there wasdark… it was night.

a lamp was shining by the entrance… it is from moscow. calm down! hello? this is strelnikov. yes. i got you. i got you, we’ll do it. guard! take this guy to thecell. let him sleep. don’t touch me. i’ll go myself. you got lucky, makarandreyevitch. you may go. but remember — you maynot get so lucky next time.

do you understand? you may be free. what‘s the matter? nothing. work! straight back is themain thing. straighten up! where are your four points —heels, ass, shoulder blades and the back of your head?you shall touch the wall with them. ‒‚ do you understand?‒‚ i do. remember, girl. it makes nodifference what you put on, what make up you have,how you did your hair.

the main thing is a straight back.modern girls are so stooping! when they are 30, they run tothe surgeon to make surgeries to lift their tits or wear theseterrible bras with fittings. if you bear your backstraight, you won’t need either a surgeon or a brafor long. let’s try walking. very good, very good… what? you’re dreaming about an affairwith mansurov again, aren’t you? all right, go. here is a stimulusfor you — if you study well, i’ll take you to the exhibitionand present you to roma.

he loves beautiful women.he’ll be our jury and tell us whether we succeeded in makinga beauty out of you or not. so get ready.we’re going there on friday. are you serious? will you takeme to the exhibition with you? of course, i will. just washmirror in the bathroom, cinderella, it’s the second time i ask youabout it. and gather the books. don’t forget about your back. very good! hello, seriy? hi, this is makar! i’ll be in moscow in three hours.this is not a phone talk.

we’ll talk when i get there. where are you? i’m by the house of sakharova’s auntie. look, i don’t get it. why didtogoyev fail to tell us about her? togoyev didn’t know about her. she is some distant relative. tatyana didn’t communicatewith her either. his security service didn’tcheck her relatives. seriy, why did you fall silent?seriy, what’s happened? i think this is yulia sakharova.

are you sure? no. however, she looks just like her. i understand. it means shedoes live at konetskaya’s place. i see. what is she doing? she is going somewhere.shall i wait for her here? no. follow her. don’tlet her see you. go, bye! i see. one can’t even eatin peace with this work! man, do you have a condom? i’m sorry but i don’t.

is she yulia or not? let me check it. all right, i’ll do it. you’ll arrange anaccident for the old woman. i’ll pay you for this’ll be like this and in no other way. what if it turns out thatyou won’t get the money? it won’t. i saw the testament. valentina will get her summer cottage.the rest goes to the relatives. what do you have to do with it? i’m her only relative.

this is interesting. what ifi go to your auntie right now and tell her about it?how much will she give me for such information?hey! what are you doing? do you know how much isuffered to make her trust me? i put up with everything,i agree with everything. do you think it is easy?i’m holding up with my last strength! if some idiot interferes with my plan, i’ll strangle him with my bare hands.i’ll do it, you know me. besides, i won’t get punished for it.

from a chan. by theway, he owes him money. you know everything! how didyou get to know about chan? i asked guys from thedrug control department. they are working on chan.shall i call kalashannikov? serezha, listen to me.who are we working for? your kalashannikov is notour client, togoyev is. he pays us to find hisdaughter. we’ve found her. i don’t want to get involvedin this case anymore. we’ll go to togoyev now, informhim on the results of our search,
