  • She turned and opened the cupboard drawer to her left and withdrew a small slip of paper. She hadn't wanted to use this, to call the number listed on this ripped off bit of stiff, white paper. She'd jotted it down just to be polite, to keep from making waves. She was one of those sorts who hated giving someone a "no." But she'd never had any intention of following through with the gentleman's suggestion.
  • It was the evening of a hot sultry day, when our travellers, fatigued and foot-sore, arrived at the entrance of a small valley not far distant from the intended scene of their future operations. Here they determined to encamp for the night on the margin of a small stream, where there was grass for the mule and shelter under the trees for the men. On making their way, however, to the place, they observed an Indian village down on a plain below, and, being uncertain as to the numbers or the temper of the natives, they were about to cross the stream and continue their journey a little further, when a party of six Indians suddenly made their appearance in front, and advanced fearlessly, making signs of friendship.
  • Just another part of the wonderful story of my life, Poe thought, pouring himself a small glass of rye and setting it beside the blank sheet of paper in front of him. Hed once set the glasses of booze onto the paper, knowing that the rings they left meant the paper wasnt entirely blank or valueless, but hed learned that when he threw the paper towards the garbage can the glass often followed, at least part way, and hed had enough of picking glass shards out of his feet. And mopping booze off the floor.
  • Thus, any triangle of velocities could not direct a small passerine into our longitude.
  • We had no difficulty in finding my lair, and then I went down into the valley and bowled over a small antelope, which I dragged up the steep ascent to the ledge before the door. Here we ate in silence. Occasionally I glanced at her, thinking that the sight of her tearing at raw flesh with her hands and teeth like some wild animal would cause a revulsion of my sentiments toward her; but to my surprise I found that she ate quite as daintily as the most civilized woman of my acquaintance, and finally I found myself gazing in foolish rapture at the beauties of her strong, white teeth. Such is love.
  • Jian turned, a small upward quirk on his lips. Tynon was striding across the deck to meet him, dressed entirely in black from the skull rag tied upon his head right on down to his boots.
  • Several hours went by before he awoke. He sat up on his couch, rubbing his blurry eyes with his hands and wiping his drool on his sleeve. Staring at him was a big, unblinking eye. It was Eep the imp. Eep was just over three feet tall, with two legs, two arms, two leathery wings, and a head with just one large eye. His muscular arms ended in three clawed fingers and a thumb, and his thick bumpy skin was a mixture of grey, brown, and black. The imp had a hawk nose and its wide nostrils seemed to point to its grin. Eep opened his mouth full of white, razor-sharp teeth and a long tail-like tongue. Eep was a small horror with a very big smile.
  • Lord Charles Beresford at once started up the river in a small steamer to rescue Sir Charles Wilson's party. As it was known that there was a strong battery below the spot where the steamers had been lost, and that Beresford would have to run the gauntlet of this on his way up, much anxiety was felt as to the result, and a constant and eager watch was kept up for a sight of the steamer on her return. When the time came that she was expected to make her appearance, and no signs were visible of her, the anxiety heightened; and when another day passed, and still she did not return, grave fears were entertained for her safety. At last the welcome news came that smoke could be seen ascending from the river higher up, and loud cheers burst from the men when the flag at the masthead was seen above the trees.
  • No, I do not, replied Monte Cristo; "it is a small place I have purchased quite lately. My place of abode is No. 30, Avenue des Champs Elysees; but I see you have quite recovered from your fright, and are, no doubt, desirous of returning home. Anticipating your wishes, I have desired the same horses you came with to be put to one of my carriages, and Ali, he whom you think so very ugly," continued he, addressing the boy with a smiling air, "will have the honor of driving you home, while your coachman remains here to attend to the necessary repairs of your calash. As soon as that important business is concluded, I will have a pair of my own horses harnessed to convey it direct to Madame Danglars."
  • "Yes there is. I went through there many times when I was young. It's a good, fresh well at a clearing where several roads and paths meet. It's been an important stopping-place for travellers for many generations. There's a small market there, a blacksmith shop and an inn. Is it in the poem?"
  • It was a small one, weighing about fifteen pounds. The wet, leathery body glistened, and the kite-shaped wings flapped like those of some fantastic bird.
  • In the high-frequency condition, the synchronous masker had only a small effect, but the asynchronous masker reduced performance dramatically.
  • On Grays side waited a fifty-inch plasma TV screen, couches, a rocker, and recliner. Bookshelves stood on both sides of the room, a small bookshelf for the children between Rose and Emorys desks. Rose noted the books were in need of straightening. Before she grabbed her shoes, she sat at her computer, checking the news, then her email. Then she squatted, stretching her legs, watching the second hand tick off, thinking about what she needed; three Kleenexes, her phone, ear buds, and a dash of Carmex on her lips. On her way out she would take her keys from the counter, putting all those things in the pouch of her hoodie. She didnt need the sweatshirt so much for warmth, more for storage.
  • No, said the count, with an imperceptible smile of contempt, for he had no wish to be seen in the young man's society,--"no; I prefer listening to you here, my dear M. Andrea; we can chat better in-doors, and there is no coachman to overhear our conversation." The count returned to a small drawing-room on the first floor, sat down, and crossing his legs motioned to the young man to take a seat also. Andrea assumed his gayest manner. "You know, my dear count," said he, "the ceremony is to take place this evening. At nine o'clock the contract is to be signed at my father-in-law's."
  • The Irishman now produced his watchan immense affair that would have made a load for a small child. He pried open its gigantic case and showed the dazzling array of brass wheels and the glittering coil of steel. It could not but be attractive to a savage mind, and the Indian's eyes sparkled as he looked upon it.
  • I am travelling with this gentleman, who has come from a far distant country to hunt and to shoot game here in winter. We would like to live beside your village and to hunt with you. You see he has a gun. He has many things as presents, and it will be well for the village where he settles. Here is some tobacco for all, and Luka handed a small roll of tobacco to each of the men. "We have also some presents for the women," and he produced two or three looking-glasses, and some rows of large blue and red beads. The women, who were listening in the huts, at once came out.
  • Old Laroche had been sent to a small hut a long day's march from the fort, where he was wont to spend his time in trapping foxes. He was there alone, so, three days before New Year's Day, Jasper set out with Arrowhead to visit the old man, and bear him company on his march back to the fort.
  • From that time we heard rumours of hard fighting in various parts of the country, and about the middle of March 1821 a messenger arrived from Raymon Sorillo. He brought the order for thirty men to march to Pisco, on the sea-coast, where a small patriot detachment had landed under the command of Colonel Miller.
  • As no attempt had been made to return the fire by the artillery, Sir Sidney Smith was convinced the French must be unprovided with a siege train. Having learned from people who had escaped by boat from Jaffa, that only field-pieces had there been employed to batter the wall, he ordered a constant watch to be kept for any ships seen approaching, as Bonaparte would hardly have hoped to take so strong a place as Acre without heavy guns, and had doubtless arranged for a battering-train to be sent from Alexandria by sea. This would probably be ordered to make either for Jaffa, or for Caiffa, a small port a few miles south of Acre. The Theseus was at once sent down to Jaffa, to prevent any landing of guns or stores being effected there, while the Tigre's boats were placed at intervals between Caiffa and Acre.
  • 'It does,' remarked Hugh grimly, taking in the disorder of the room. The tablecloth was pulled off, the telephone lay on the floor. China and glass, smashed to pieces, littered the carpet; but what caught his eye, and caused him suddenly to step forward and pick it up, was a plain circle of glass with a black cord attached to it through a small hole.
  • On the morning following two travelers left a small inn which lay on the road-side, about ten miles north of Brandon. It was about eight o'clock when they took their departure, driving in their own carriage at a moderate pace along the road.

  • I usually make the paste runny by adding a teaspoon or two of diluted lectade to a small tin of food.
  • Towards sunset a glad sight met their eyes. In a small clearing amid the forest stood a roughly built log hut. Grodno advanced boldly to the door, and after two or three unanswered knocks flung it open and entered. He reappeared in a moment, beckoning to his companions, and then hurried eagerly forward.
  • It was only later that Nicolette realized, with amazement, that if the fight had gone otherwise, she would now be a widow. The thought of such freedom sent a small thrill through her. Then she felt ashamed. How monstrous, to wish her husband, her children's father, dead. And how would she live, a widow with three daughters, dependent on Amalric's family? Would that be an escape, or a trap far worse than her marriage?
  • Essa walked over to one of the large shelves where various objects rested. She returned with a small ceramic cup and handed it to Raven.
  • Mary laughed and stood unconcernedly while a small snake ran over her foot. "It's a good thing Miss Peckham isn't here," she remarked. "Did you ever see anything so funny as that coral snake business of hers?" she added, laughing good naturedly. "Poor Miss Peckham won't be allowed to forget that episode all summer. It's too bad she resents it so. She could get no end of fun out of it if she could only see the funny side."
  • By nightfall theyd arrived at the foot of one of the great mountains where the cool wind blowing downhill had the smell of a snow covered pine forest. Mia donned her coat and chose to ride her horse for a while. They stopped to make camp on the leeward side of a sheer rock cliff, part way up a slight hill. A stream ran nearby, giving them a means to water the horses. They loosed them to graze. Finnegaff ensured the concerned Mia that they would not stray. He made a small fire as Belemeriath broke out the cooking supplies. Despite his meager four inches in height, he could air lift heavy cast iron skillets or sizable pots with relative ease. Mia did like the fact that the fairy was always happy to do whatever, more than willing to help with any chore. Maybe he wasnt so bad after all, as long as he stayed out of her face.
  • What did that mean? I had to trust that the Headmaster's wisdom was trying to sort it all out. How much power did our Headmaster have to overrule the Ministry of Magic? Was there a chance that he might be allowed to come back to life and appear somewhere on the ground of Shines? a small shoot of hope burgeoned in my chest, almost immediately strangled by panichow was I supposed to refuse to rescue my friend, Eibhlin, without doing the worst of magic? I'd have to duel with the evil presence in here, and if I did that, I'd be lucky to escape with Eibhlin, let alone avoid expulsion.
  • The shore in face of these islets is altogether waste. Here is no dwelling of man, and scarce any passage, or at most of vagabond children running at their play. Gillane is a small place on the far side of the Ness, the folk of Dirleton go to their business in the inland fields, and those of North Berwick straight to the sea- fishing from their haven; so that few parts of the coast are lonelier. But I mind, as we crawled upon our bellies into that multiplicity of heights and hollows, keeping a bright eye upon all sides, and our hearts hammering at our ribs, there was such a shining of the sun and the sea, such a stir of the wind in the bent grass, and such a bustle of down-popping rabbits and up-flying gulls, that the desert seemed to me, like a place alive. No doubt it was in all ways well chosen for a secret embarcation, if the secret had been kept; and even now that it was out, and the place watched, we were able to creep unperceived to the front of the sandhills, where they look down immediately on the beach and sea.
  • It was a small price to pay for the abrupt cessation of that barbarous war.
  • Part of the Sacred Trust of the Healing Order was the collection and preservation of Knowledge. All Healers kept journals, recording what they learned throughout their lives. These precious leather-bound books were made in the Bindery, a building attached to the Library. They were issued to Healers and later returned to the Library, where they were kept and read, compared and discussed, analyzed and summarized. Peg sat at a small table, one of several grouped in the open centre of the room. The rest of the space was taken up with shelves, row upon row, from floor to ceiling, filled with generations of Healers' Journals. The room smelled of old paper and leather.
  • "I know, Im not a small woman to begin with, but my wingspan is actually bigger than most normal Feathered people. A freak among freaks."
  • In july 1644, a small band of irish confederates, led by alasdair maccolla macdonald, landed on the west coast of scotland.
  • Rossetti returned to a boyhood interest in animals creating a small menagerie in the garden of his house.
  • This was said so calmly, and the three grave, powerful men seemed so thoroughly capable of performing the deed, that our hero wisely submitted to the inevitable and took off his uniform, which one of the guards gathered up piece by piece as it was removed. Then he pulled on the drawers, which covered him from the waist to a little below the knees. When he had put on the red fez he found himself clothed in exactly the same costume as the runner, with the exception of a small green tippet which barely covered the top of his shoulders, and seemed to be worn rather as an ornament than a piece of clothing, though perhaps it formed a slight protection from the sun.
  • The courtroom had the full complement of judges facing the accused. The presiding judge put a black cloth over his head and without further ado, pronounced sentence. Nadhir translated, "The accused was found guilty of spying, if not by intent, then by consequence of the outcome that letters were in her possession, letters that could do great harm to the state of Tunisia in the hands of its enemies. For this act she is condemned to death by suffocation." Lady Bethune gave a small cry of despair. "For associating himself with the accused, Chief Engineer Fraser-Reid is condemned to fifteen years in jail."
  • Unlatching a small door, Rhaki thrust his hand inside, grasped a large black hopper and pulled it from the cage. It screamed eerily with the shock of being so suddenly removed from its brethren, but Rhaki held it firmly and took it with him, back through the cupboard.
  • On a lovely summer's evening, not long after the departure of the Snowflake from Bergen, our three travellers found themselves trotting through a wild glen on each side of which rose a range of rugged mountains, and down the centre of which roared a small river. The glen was so steep, and the bed of the torrent so broken, that there was not a spot of clear water in its whole course. From the end of the lake out of which it flowed, to the head of the fiord or firth into which it ran, the river was one boiling, roaring mass of milk-white foam.
  • 'Ha. Is this a promise you are likely to keep?' the old man asked, then waved his hand before he could lie again. 'Take this small token.' He picked a small bag of herbs from a nearby shelf. 'These herbs will make the most refreshing tea. Prepared by my own hands.' He pressed the bag into Harvey's hands and clasped them tightly. 'Your path is set. I see that now. But not everything in life is defined. There is always chance.'
  • Her infuriated voice did it; his chuckle escaped and he had to sit in the recliner. It felt strange, solitary, and Kell offered a small prayer; thank you Jesus! Death had finally moved on.
  • The room in which J. P. usually took his meals was a small but beautifully proportioned retreat so placed that it was completely surrounded by other rooms and had no direct contact with the outside world. It was in its ground plan an irregular octagon, and it drew its light and air from a glass dome. The most striking element in the decorations was a number of slender columns of pale-green Irish marble, which rose from the floor to the dome.
  • The Angolan Armed Forces (AAF) is headed by a Chief of Staff who reports to the Minister of Defense. There are three divisionsthe Army (Exrcito), Navy (Marinha de Guerra, MGA), and National Air Force (Força Area Nacional, FAN). Total manpower is about 110,000. Its equipment includes Russian-manufactured fighters, bombers, and transport planes. There are also Brazilian-made EMB-312 Tucano for training role, Czech-made L-39 for training and bombing role, Czech Zlin for training role and a variety of western made aircraft such as C-212\Aviocar, Sud Aviation Alouette III, etc. a small number of AAF personnel are stationed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Kinshasa) and the Republic of the Congo (Brazzaville).
  • Well, if you'll just be good enough to get me one of those nice large German pancakes that we used to get at Stein's, with a couple of cups of coffee and a little 'T' bone steak well done, with some fried potatoes and a side order of cauliflower in cream, some cold slaw, a little lettuce, some lentils, and a small platter of sauer kraut, I'll try to worry along until mess time. Can't we eat at all?
  • You can not tell how large a trouble may be started by a small politician, said he. "At least, we will hear what he has to say. 'Twas he that sought the meeting, not myself."
  • But Dimnach is so large in creation, and indeed there is no far boundary to it in the wit of dragonkind, that the light of the Moon is but a small speckle in the great darkness, and at some far places it is almost invisible.
  • "The Cossacks now began to add their terrors to those of the wolves. If a small detachment straggled out of the blinding snow, unseen until that time would come a rush of the furious and valiant horsemen of the steppes, and the detachment, hungry and exhausted, would be cut to pieces. They fought with heroic courage, but no man can fight the Weather.
  • Well, on our way, Bud called. He took one more look at the auto lying on its side in a small depression, and spurred his horse onward. The rest followed quickly. The night was well spent, now, and but little time remained to reach the ranch and post the guard. However, it was not far now, and by dint of hard riding, following directions from Bud, they reached the vicinity of the ranch house in half an hour. They halted well away from the house itself.
  • Morrel obeyed; the count arose, and unlocking a closet with a key suspended from his gold chain, took from it a little silver casket, beautifully carved and chased, the corners of which represented four bending figures, similar to the Caryatides, the forms of women, symbols of the angels aspiring to heaven. He placed the casket on the table; then opening it took out a little golden box, the top of which flew open when touched by a secret spring. This box contained an unctuous substance partly solid, of which it was impossible to discover the color, owing to the reflection of the polished gold, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, which ornamented the box. It was a mixed mass of blue, red, and gold. The count took out a small quantity of this with a gilt spoon, and offered it to Morrel, fixing a long steadfast glance upon him. It was then observable that the substance was greenish.
  • It seemed quite evident that the captain intended to establish himself in a somewhat permanent manner as a trader in guano. He had a small tent and a good stock of provisions, and, from the way he went to work and set his men to work, it was easy to see that he had thoroughly planned and arranged all the details of his enterprise.
  • A small silver lamp which hung from a beam threw a dim soft light over the cabin, which was a small apartment, and comfortably but plainly finished. Seated on a camp-stool at the table, and busily engaged in examining a chart of the Pacific, was the captain, who looked up as I entered, and, in a quiet voice, bade me be seated, while he threw down his pencil, and, rising from the table, stretched himself on a sofa at the upper end of the cabin.
  • Making a chocolate snowman. Writing and illustrating festive pop-up books. Arranging a small Newgrange model as faithfully as they could. Making a denim bag. Well - they didn't make the actual bag, just stuck plastic gems on it.

  • "He's not..." she began then realized that there was no easy way to tell these people that she and Darius were not related. It appeared that word traveled quickly in a small town. Evelyn and the crowd around them were looking at her waiting for her to finish her sentence.
  • There was a sleeping cabin, fitted with bunks, a combined kitchen and dining-room, a small living-room, and the motor-room. Of course the latter took up the most space, being the most important.
  • David glances at Jane. ‘Well actually,’ he says, ‘I had a small exhibition a year ago. At the Playboy Club, you know.’
  • I can take the whole tests except cooking the meat and potatoes in the 'Billy,' bemoaned young Green, a small chap of about thirteen. "Somehow, they always seem to burn, or else they don't cook at all."
  • As the tribes came up to the Great Place they were reviewed and sent away, since it was impossible to feed so vast a multitude as would have collected had they all remained. Thus the Amasomi, a small people who were amongst the first to arrive, soon left. Only, for some reason which I never quite understood, Masapo, Mameena and a few of Masapo's children and headmen were detained there; though perhaps, if she had chosen, Mameena could have given an explanation.
  • By small i mean a drop about the size of, well, a small raindrop perhaps.
  • Silence reigned overhead in the palace, but at morning and evening of that day food and water were thrust through a small wicket in the brass door of the cell, though the prisoners did not see the man who brought them.
  • To the South-West, and distant thirteen miles, were two large islands, which from the remarkable shape of two patches of trees on their northern ends, we named Quoin and Clump Islands. a small patch of low land was discovered beyond them, between which and Quoin Island appeared the proper channel. That, however, lying between the islands seemed sufficiently large for the ship. Being moreover within our immediate reach, it was determined that we should proceed by it.
  • My poor fellow, said Silva, with a sudden gush of remorse, "you are only sacrificing yourself uselessly. What can you, in a small sailing vessel like this, do with your rifles against a splendidly armed vessel like the Cancelario?"
  • When but a child of tender age, our hero had been found one day walking along the railroad tracks near the town of Crumville. He could tell nothing about himself or where he belonged, and was taken to the local poorhouse, where he remained for a number of years, finally being bound out to a retired college professor, named Caspar Potts, who was then running a small farm for his health. The professor did what he could for the lad, giving him a fairly good education. But Professor Potts was no farmer and soon got into financial difficulties with a mean money-lender, named Aaron Poole, and would have lost his farm had it not been for something out of the ordinary happening.
  • The river flowed there to bearings magnetic 120; then to 140 b.m. for 3,000 m., where it was comparatively smooth. To the south-east of us was a hill range fully 600 ft. high. What appeared to me to be a small tributary seemed to enter the river on the left, but my men were so tired that I did not cross over to the other side in order to make certain. On looking behind us I could see that the hill range at the fall extended from north-west to south-east, while another smaller hill range, only 250 ft. above the level of the river, stretched from north to south on the left of the stream. The river was 300 m. wide.
  • After Sarge returned to the U.S. and earned a starting position in the Whispers lineup, he hired several detectives to track down Charles Tanners son. Sarge gave the investigators as much as he remembered, which was not a whole lot. He knew that Tanner lived in a small town near Omaha, Nebraska. He knew that Tanners son was named after his father, and he knew his wife was named Josephine. He even told them about how Tanner always talked about what a good ballplayer his son was. The man would boast about his boy with the golden arm, but that was all Sarge could give them. Their missions in Europe were so secret that all written documents about Americas involvement had been burned. As far as the world was concerned, Tanner, Mink, and Sarge had never even existed.
  • After ten minutes, they stood on a rocky area of the riverside. The trail continued over a rise of broken terrain and disappeared behind the top of the slope. Between a huge boulder and the rocky riverside, at the bottom of a small drop in the river, churned a whirlpool.
  • The Purloiner approached the shrubberies and spread them aside with one hand. Tied to an old crab tree stooped over with age was a small cast-iron bicycle with a shoddy pair of wooden practice wheels attached to either side.
  • As I was engaged at sunrise in making certain that the donkeys had not strayed and generally that all was well, I noted through the thin mist a little white object, which at first I thought was a small bird sitting on an upright stick about fifty yards from the camp. I went towards it and discovered that it was not a bird but a folded piece of paper stuck in a cleft wand, such as natives often use for the carrying of letters. I opened the paper and with great difficulty, for the writing within was bad Portuguese, read as follows:
  • Hawksworth saw a small flicker in Jadars eyes as the prince waited for the answer. "I think a dozen could do it. If we caught their fleet in the harbor, before they could put out to sea."
  • If this is not true can somebody explain how the detonation of a small amount of tnt can produce megatons of explosive force?
  • It was naturally rounded, with a small pond in the rear corner. The steady drip of water sent echoes through the chamber. Stalagmites formed columns in the room. They were used to practice around. Crates and boulders were scattered throughout the rear to enhance that training. The rest of the cavern was left open for individual and group sparring.
  • A young man carried a net of white, jagged mushrooms on his back. The roots of the mushrooms glowed with a glossy purple light. An old woman led a dozen tawny rabbits by means of a twig with a small radish on the end. The radish also glowed with a glossy purple light. Another young man gathered seedpods from a prodigious growth on the bark of a tree and placed them in an enormous, hollowed out turnip roped to his back. The inside of the turnip radiated the same glossy purple light.
  • After some days, during which Van Luck was cared for, he began to regain some semblance to his former self. He also, by degrees, remembered his native tongue, but he spoke in a halting manner like a child. While we remained at this island we visited the cave in which Van Luck had lived during the time he had been marooned. It contained nothing belonging to the boat in which he had been set adrift, from which we inferred the boat had been lost at the time when he was washed ashore. He seemed to have subsisted chiefly upon turtles, of which there were numbers basking upon the beach, and also upon a small species of squirrel, of the skins of which, roughly sewn together, his robe was made, but we could find no sign of a fire, so we concluded he had devoured his food raw. There were streams and springs on the islands from which to quench his thirst, but his sufferings must have been very severe during his enforced solitude, nor was it a matter for wonder that his mind had become deranged.
  • Her dress was that of the country, and yet, perhaps, rather such as Croatian peasants wear. All white linen, embroidered ever so richly, cut low and round at the neck, and with the skirt falling some four inches below her knee: short sleeves, a small, white apron, and over her thick, fair hair a bright red kerchief. But her stockings were of white silk, and small, black buckled slippers kept the little feet. Clear, blue eyes hers, and a small merry mouth, and a skin after the sun's own heart.
  • He appears to be drawing a door on the wall,' said Denny, clearly perplexed. And indeed the man was drawing a door on the wall with a shaky hand, using a small stone.
  • She counted at least 10 men with automatic weapons below. Dave crawled up, peered through the grate, and nodded confidently. He pulled a small stack of aluminum backpackerscups from his pocket and handed half to Rachel.
  • Gladys twisted the phone cord idly. Leaning back against the counter behind her, she let a small smile spread across her lips. 'No way, Brittany.'
  • I have said, however, that there was a small farm- house immediately in front of us. As we rode up to it I observed that a fine grey horse with a military saddle was tethered by the door. Instantly I galloped forward, but before I could reach it a man dashed out of the door, flung himself on to the horse, and rode furiously away, the crisp, dry snow flying up in a cloud behind him. The sunlight gleamed upon his gold epaulettes, and I knew that he was a Russian officer. He would raise the whole country-side if we did not catch him. I put spurs to Violette and flew after him. My troopers followed; but there was no horse among them to compare with Violette, and I knew well that if I could not catch the Russian I need expect no help from them.
  • He walked into the large open room that was their kitchen, dining, and family room. A heavy wood table stood in the center of the room and in the corner opposite the front door was a counter and cast iron stove at which Sasha was standing. To the left of the stove and counter was the back door and next to it on the wall was a small mirror with a copper frame. Legon stepped up to the mirror to make sure that he didnt look too beastly. Staring back at him was a teenage boy with short brown hair, dark green eyes, and a firm jaw line. His skin was unusually smooth. He inspected his face with a look of disappointment, hoping to find the small pricks of a beard. Im like a girl! I couldnt grow a proper beard if my whole familys life depended on it!
  • Dylans wife stood among a small group of women and watched the parade of horsemen file one by one into the fortress. First to enter was Rhirid and, without trying to appear too obvious, she craned her neck slightly to catch a glimpse of the woman sitting behind him, arms clasped around his waist. "So thats her," she murmured to her nearest companion. "She looks very young. Barely older than a child. And thin. She certainly isnt the beauty Ive heard tell of, despite her fine clothes."
  • Not far from the ruins in the lands of Hun Doptchin Djamtso there is a small lake which sometimes burns with a red flame, terrifying the Mongols and herds of horses. Naturally this lake is rich with legends. Here a meteor formerly fell and sank far into the earth. In the hole this lake appeared. Now, it seems, the inhabitants of the subterranean passages, semi-man and semi-demon, are laboring to extract this "stone of the sky" from its deep bed and it is setting the water on fire as it rises and falls back in spite of their every effort. I did not see the lake myself but a Russian colonist told me that it may be petroleum on the lake that is fired either from the campfires of the shepherds or by the blazing rays of the sun.
  • The aims indicated above are, no doubt, somewhat idealistic for a small new journal.

Next, she helped Marigaff fold some linens, but did it with Saa. Mia thought it went well. She only tore two towels in half, well, one in four places, before she got the hang of it.
