"I (полагаю) you want (приступить к делу)?"

When Miles had gone with the empty frame (под мышкой), the boy and the grandfather (вернулись) to the room where the frame had hung.
The boy went to a box in the corner, (вытащил) another empty frame, and hung it where the first had been.
Then the old man and the boy sat down and began to wait. They (были полностью подготовлены) for the next art dealer.
