Uncle Vernon waited until Piers was safely out of the house before starting on harry. He was so angry he could hardly speak. He managed to say, "Go-Cupboard-stay-no meals," before he collapsed into a chair, and Aunt Petunia had to run and get him a large brandy.
Harry lay in his dark cupboard much later, wishing he had a watch.
This is from Harry potter and I'm confused about 'much later' here beacuse I first thought that just literally means 'a lot' later, so 'many hours later after uncle vernon told Harry to stay in his cupboard...',
but in the trasnlated version of this book(in my language), it's translated like 'Harry was laying in his cupboard 'for a long time', and he wished he had...'.
I know it's not an important question, but I just wanna make it sure,so.. Is it just a mistranslation?
