But Venjamin Ivanovich did not begin to hint at Zheku. It has suddenly risen and has told resolutely: "Have gone. You
wanted a confrontation? I ask!." It is a dinner, it appears, was at convicts. That is why they waited the whole superfluous
Simeon Mirlin has appeared before it cheerful, a mouth to ears, but - strongly become thin, and one tooth at it in front did not
Have embraced. (Under attentive sights of the captain and the major). Have sat down.
Stanislav - on one of chairs that rjadkom has been exposed under highly lifted (zareshechennym, it it is natural) a window.
Mirlin - for a separate special little table, aside, at a wall, near to an entrance door.
The lively conversation did not interrupt for a minute - Mirlin talked to inspectors. It appears, to companion Antropov today
declared in newspapers assignment of a high rank of the Hero of Socialist Work. Mirlin believed that it is the award to the
chief of KGB for arrest and its exposure, Mirlina, personally. Inspectors laughed and - did not object. Jokes and flitted on a
room, the cheerful friendly laughter did not stop. Stanislav too very much smiled. It would be desirable it now only one, - it
would be desirable to take away Mirlina away and to ask it in a low voice: "What has happened? AS they have managed to
force you that you have given these evidences?." The confrontation has swept like clockwork. Participants behaved
irreproachably. Having exchanged (under complacent, but a little guarded sights of officials) vigorous general phrases about
state of health, a family, weather, they more did not break in advance announced rules and addressed to each other
exclusively through captain Poleshchuka. Person on remand Mirlin everything that from it was required, with jokes and
humourous catchphrases confirmed, witness Krasnogorov, observing such complacency and a unification with inquiry
bodies, too did not persist and without any resistance confirmed the confirmed. Captain Poleshchuk vigorously rumbled on
the machine (it printed already four!) And the major Krasnogorsky strolled there-here on a room from the person on remand to
the captain, from the captain - to the witness and only released from time to time half-joking remarks, showing thus the desire
not to give soup to cool down in a pot. In a room it was cold, it is gloomy - whether at liberty the sun for a cloud has come,
whether the window in a wall any left, - and the ceiling here for some reason was low, and in a corner any huge, on metal
beds, the box which has been wrapped up in a black matter strange and mysteriously looked...
Only one time in a current of remedial action has arisen failure, and that - insignificant. When in reply to any submissively-
puzzled question of the witness the person on remand suddenly has joyfully shouted: "Yes My God, Slavka! Yes they
listened to your phone as wanted!." Some instant vanity was formed, has ceased tarahtenie machines, and the witness,
mournfully smiling, has enquired at the major who has braked before it: "Really? Venjamin Ivanovich, really you, really,
listened to my phone?" It has asked this question at all seriously, anywhere did not follow that Mirlin acts on business,
moreover, most likely, it simply frayed, but on the person of the major Krasnogorsky the mix of any difficult and strange
experiences was formed suddenly absolutely unexpected and even inappropriate like, the major has clearly reddened and
has said with absolutely unnecessary solemnity:" I you most seriously, Stanislav Zinovevich, assure that your phone neither
was not listened earlier never, nor now... "Then the confrontation report has been read by participants and signed.
The person on remand has signed all three sheets almost that without looking, and here the witness has proved to be the
person caustic and uneasy. He felt itself(himself) thus extremely awkwardly, - the such bore, owing to nasty character taking
away time at good people, but having found out once in the report that beautiful and cheerful captain Poleshchuk has
attributed to it words "... I read anti-Soviet article of Mirlina" the Generation which has taken a sip of freedom "..." He has
objected that words such did not say that article of Mirlina he anti-Soviet does not consider that with article he argued, yes,
but not because considered article anti-Soviet, and absolutely for other reasons... Allow, here and on the following page the
same! No, I did not give this definition to article... I will ask these words to copy... Yes, anew... It is possible to delete simply?
It is good, then I delete them... Here again here the same... Still is somewhere?... Aha, and here... And in the end I will write
that I them have deleted it... And how? I did not tell these words. No. It was necessary to give to me, I would write the
answers to your questions... And that that turns out?.
