CRÚBA NA CINNIÚNA

le Áine Uí Fhoghlú
Caibidil 2: Gnáthlá [tuilleadh]

Bhí sí ag méanfach agus ag tarraingt na gcos agus í ag dul síos
staighre leis an mbeart beag litreacha a bhí ar an urlár a bhailiú.
Chaith sí ar an mbord iad agus chuir an citeal ar siúl. Cupan

caifé. Sin a mbeadh an t-am aici do ar maidin. Fuair sí an muga salach a bhí fagtha ag Liam ar an mbord draenála agus
shruthlaigh [23] sa doirteal é. An citeal ag crónán. Chuir sí spúnóg caifé isteach sa mhuga agus d’fhág caite ann é,
an púdar donn ag dorchú is é á ghreamú féin de bhun an mhuga. D’fhéach sí trid na litreacha. Bille.
Ní osclódh sí é sin go dtí níos deanai. Bileog fhógraíochta ó dhream a bhí ag bailiú éadaí don Afraic.
Ceann ón ollmhargadh ag fógairt sladmhargaí ar mhaisiúcháin Nollag agus gan ann fós ach mí na Samhna.
Chaith sí an t-iomlán ar leataobh. Bruscar. D’fhéachfadh sí i gceart orthu anocht. A ríomhaire glúine isteach ina mála droma,
banana ina glaic le n-ithe ar an slí, fáinne na heochrach ar a hordóg aici, cóta ar a gualainn.
Phreab an cnagaire nuair a phlab sí an doras.

D’fhéachfadh sí i gceart orthu anocht. She would look at them tonight properly
A ríomhaire glúine isteach ina mála droma Her laptop into a backpack

fáinne na heochrach ar a hordóg aici, she had a keyring on her thumb,
cóta ar a gualairm coat on her shoulder
Phreab an cnagaire nuair a phlab sí an doras. The knocker banged when she slammed the door.

Bhí an láithreoir raidió ina ghuth beag tanaí sna cluasáin aici agus é ag trácht ar fhógraíocht Nollag,
go raibh sé imithe as lámh ar fad. Stracfhéachaint ar dheis, ansin ar chlé. Trasna. Bhí sé i siopa sa chathair inné a dúirt sé agus
bhí sé maisithe acu cheana féin – áiféiseach [24]. D’aontaigh Siobhán leis. Shiúil sí síos an lána agus trasna na faiche,
an tslí ba thapúla agus ba dhírí chun na hoibre de shiúl na gcos. Bhí sí díreach ag an taobhgheata nuair a chuir an láithreoir
tuairisceoir nuachta i láthair. Bhí an tuairisc ba dhéanaí aige ar eachtra éigin a tharla thuas fán dtír déanach aréir.
D’fhéach sí ar an gclog ar a fón póca. Nóiméad tar éis. Ba cheart di an rang a bheith tosaithe aici ar a naoi agus
thógfadh sé trí nóiméad eile an staighre a chur di nuair a raghadh sí isteach sa bhfoirgneamh. Sa donas leis.
Ní fhéadfadh sí éisteacht anois. Bhain sí seac na gcluasán [25]

as an bpoillín bídeach i mbun a fóin póca, mhúch an fón agus d’fhill sreang na gcluasán go cúramach
mar fhigiúr a hocht timpeall ar a méar isteach i mbas a láimhe. Isteach ina póca leo.

Stracfhéachaint = Sracfhéachaint cursory glance

Bhí sí díreach ag an taobhgheata nuair a chuir an láithreoir tuairisceoir nuachta i láthair. She was
just at the side gate when the news reporter began
Bhí an tuairisc ba dhéanaí aige ar eachtra éigin a tharla thuas fán dtír déanach aréir. The latest report on some incident that happened up wandering in the country late last night
D’fhéach sí ar an gclog ar a fón póca. She looked at the clock on her cell phone
Nóiméad tar éis Minute after
Ba cheart di an rang a bheith tosaithe aici ar a naoi She should have started her class at nine
thógfadh sé trí nóiméad eile an staighre a chur di It would take her another 3 minutes to take the stairs

Sa donas leis Too bad leis ?
Ní fhéadfadh sí éisteacht anois. She could not listen now
Bhain sí seac na gcluasán as an bpoillín bídeach i mbun a fóin póca She removed the earphone jack from the little hole in the base of her cell phone
d’fhill sreang na gcluasán go cúramach mar fhigiúr a hocht timpeall ar a méar isteach i mbas a láimhe. She carefully bent the wire of the earphones into a figure eight around her fingers in the palm of her hand.

Nuair a shuigh sí síos ag an mbord sa seomra foirne ag am lóin bhí an comhrá faoi lán seol. Bhí sí deanach ag teacht isteach
mar go raibh uirthi labhairt le beirt leads óga as a rang ríomhaireachta.
