The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire -Part One- 2
A few days later, Holmes and I met Ferguston in front of his house in Susex.
Ferguston let us in and took us into a large room with a stone fireplace.
On the walls, you could see guns and other weapons from South America.
Holmes looked at them very carefully.
Then, he suddenly said,
A dog slowly walked over to Ferguston.
*walk over to ~ ; （向こう）へ歩いていく
You could see that it had difficulty walking.
“He has trouble moving his back legs.”
The dog looked up at Holmes and me.He looked sad.
“It happened about four months ago.
One morning, he suddenly had trouble moving.”
“Interesting. It could mean something.”
At that moment, the door opened, and a teenage boy came in.
When he saw his father, he happily rushed over and hugged him.
*rush over ; （向こうから）駆け寄る
*hug ~ ; 〜と抱き合う
His father carefully hugged him back.
Holmes saw this and said,
“Could we see the baby now?”
The nurse brought in the baby, Ferguston held him gently in his arms.
*bring in ; （人を）連れてくる
But Holmes was not looking at them.
He was looking toward the window.
It seemed he saw something, but he didn’t say anything about it.
Then, he said.
“To solve this mystery, I should see your wife.
Let’s go upstairs.”
“But my wife will not see me!”
“Yes, she will.”
With that, Holmes wrote a short message on a piece of paper, and the nurse delivered it to Madame Ferguston.
Soon, a scream was heard from upstairs.
*with that; そう言って
