|Written By Sergei Dovlatov(P250)
Katya waked Egorov, who was the captain,
up in the early cold morning. He had been
dreaming a funny dream, so he told her about
it, but she didn't care about it.
| Katya got up very early in the morning.
It was very quiet and cold. She put on her
slippers and her bluish warm bathrobe. After
she read the words of daily calendar, she
woke Egorov up.
They had some conversations, suddenly she started to cry. That made Egorov depressed. He didn't understand why she was crying but he slowly dressed.
Katya didn't like to live here. While Katya was looking up the window, Egorov was outside to pick up armful of firewood. Then she began to talk again that she hated winter here and hated frost in the morning, dark evenings, dogs barking, ice in the washbasin. He friendly suggested they invite some people but she refused because she was not in her right mind anymore. In the kennel, the dog started to howl. Egorov pulled out of her hands, went outside. Katya went into the kitchen, she found the ice in the washbasin was melting. She remembered some poem lines that had been a gift to her from Lenya Mak which was heard from phonograph record.
Incidentally a shot rang out. The dog stooped to howl. After a while, he came back with a something in a sheet. Katya was afraid to look at it but asked him what happened. He didn't answer for it.

here. It was too cold and depressing. She
couldn't take it anymore. First, Egorov,

seriously, but when she burst into tears

that she was really depressed and unhappy.
|A severe climate makes people feel gloomy.
Katy had been living with her partner Egorov. The snowdrift halfway up the window, frozen water, moreover everything made by the winter climate let her confuse in that day.
She hated the barking of their dog outside. Although she wanted that Egorov realise it, the feeling had not reached him. Then, it happened because of the howl, which the dog began. Her mind was beyond the limit.
When Egorov brought something wrapped in a tarpaulin from outside, she recognized what had happened to the dog.
