"When I was a little girl just like you, my grandmother told me about some magic waters."
“Amikor olyan kicsi leányka voltam, mint Te, az én nagymamám mesélt valami varázslatos vizről.”

"Oh boy!"
“Hȕ de jó!”

I thought, as I eagerly shook my head yes.
gondoltam, és hevesen bólintottam.

"This is just what I was hoping for."

Ezt mondta el nekem nagymama…
