    fearful difficulties!

    Hi everyone!
    Help me please to translate it:

    'But there's a girl out there running for her life. What am I going to tell her?'
    В выделенном фрагменте предложения имеется ввиду что за ее жизнью гонятся т.е. дословно: Там идет погоня за ее жизнью. Так?

    The following sentence is absolutely impossible to understand for me!
    There is no perceptible wear.

    THANKS A LOT FOR YOUR HUMAN KINDNESS!!! )

    Нет. to run for one's life значит "бежать, чтобы спасти свою жизнь (чтобы спастись от смерти)"

    There is no sign of anything being worn ie it is not possible to see or otherwise detect that the article has been damaged or otherwise affected.

    Нет никаких признаков того, что что-то было использавано.

    A common phrase to refer to items deteriorating through useage rather than by fault in manufacture or deliberate damage is "fair wear and tear" - last word not pronounced like the drop of water from the eye!
