Hi everyone. I am trying to translate a complex passage of a book. The girl's hands are "cuffed behind her back and hooked to the sides of her metal chair". As soon as she understands she is in danger, she manages to get up with a weird movement. Here is the description of what she does: "In one fluid move, she slid as far back in her chair as possible, straightening her legs and pressing her stomach against her thighs. WHEN HER BUTT CLEARED THE SPACE BETWEEN TOP AND BOTTOM, she bent her legs so that they came out over the top, the folding metal now positioned in front of her like a shield". Ignoring the fact that it seems very unrealistic, what kind of movement does she perform? When she says "Top" and "Bottom" she is speaking of the "back" and the "seat" of the chair, isn't she? How can her butt CLEAR that space? And where do the legs come out from? I'm sorry I'm not even providing some sort of translation, but I really can't figure this one out. Thank you for your help and... feel free to correct my English!
