  • There was only one, and he was uncomfortably near the rock; but such a splendid chance was not to be missed, if our previous training was of any avail. There was some speculation as to what he could be doing so close inshore, contrary to the habit of this animal, who seems to be only comfortable when in deep waters; but except a suggestion that perhaps he had come in to scrape off an extra accumulation of barnacles, nobody could arrive at any definite conclusion. When we reached him, we found a frightful blind swell rolling, and it needed all our seamanship to handle the boats so that they should not be capsized. Fortunately, the huge rollers did not break, or we should hardly have got back safely, whale or no whale.
  • Robin pulled up next to a long spill of books and more than a few freely floating pages and stood hopping impatiently from foot to foot. The glow from the runes on his shirt diffused out through a hanging cloud of fresh dust. Come to think of it, Leen did vaguely remember a crash and thud some ten pages earlier in her own reading, but it hadnt seemed nearly serious enough to rouse her. Leen took a look around. They appeared to have arrived at a wall, or at least a room-sized pillar. There were many similar spots around the catacombs. "Show me what youve found, Robin," Leen said patiently.
  • We had just pulled our coins out, and the engineer was backing the train in order to get her started, when Yussuf Dakmar arrived at our door, carrying his belongings, and claimed a seat on the strength of a lie about there being no room elsewhere.
  • Then Ulysses inquired, in case he should escape Charybdis, whether he might not assail that other monster with his sword; to which she replied that he must not think that he had an enemy subject to death, or wounds, to contend with, for Scylla could never die. Therefore, his best safety was in flight, and to invoke none of the gods but Gratis, who is Scylla's mother, and might perhaps forbid her daughter to devour them. For his conduct after he arrived at Trinacria she referred him to the admonitions which had been given him by Tiresias.
  • Some hours afterward Despard called Brandon outside the cottage, and walked along the bank which overhung the beach. arriving at a point several hundred yards distant from the cottage he stopped. Brandon noticed a deeper gloom upon his face and a sterner purpose on his resolute mouth.
  • ABOUT noon the next day the boys arrived at the dead tree; they had come for their tools. Tom was impatient to go to the haunted house; Huck was measurably so, also--but suddenly said:
  • The trip was begun very much as Mr. Wallace had outlined. The news spread rapidly that Burt and Howard were going to Africa, and when the two boys arrived at the station early Monday morning a good-sized crowd of friends was present to see them off.
  • After taking leave of the tribe, our travellers continued on towards the south. It was quite dark before they arrived at a suitable camping place. They had met with no water since leaving the pools passed in the morning, and the cattle were sadly in want of it.
  • The sun was nearly setting, says Huc, "when we found ourselves in a vast plain and saw on our right Lhasa, the famous metropolis of the Buddhist world. After eighteen months' struggle with sufferings and obstacles of infinite number and variety, we were at length arrived at the termination of our journey, though not at the close of our miseries."
  • In a few weeks, they arrived at the village of S , where, to their inexpressible joy, they learned that the brothers had returned home soon after the sudden disappearance of their sister, who, as it had been reported by Mr. Aubrey, had fallen from the precipice in a fit of insanity, and been drowned.
  • Disliking him as she did, it would be hard to associate with him. She studied this last problem carefully, and at last arrived at a new state of mind. She did not dislike him, it was merely the natural unconscious trend of male and female that she hated. He was not to blame, neither was she, and they were, fortunately, beings with mind and will. They could use their God-given power to talk it out and face the situation. Then Philip's natural nobility would make the solution easy. They would be on a splendid footing of frank understanding; their foresight would have saved them from a ridiculous and criminal mistake.
  • But his vessel was seized by pirates, and Ibn Batuta arrived at Calicut almost without clothes, robbed, and worn out with fatigue. No misfortune could damp his ardour, his was one of those great spirits which seem only invigorated by trouble and disasters. As soon as he was enabled by the kindness of some Delhi merchants to resume his travels, he embarked for the Maldive Islands, went on to Bengal, there set sail for Sumatra, and disembarked at one of the Nicobar Islands after a very bad passage which had lasted fifty days. Fifteen days afterwards he arrived at Sumatra, where the king gave him a hearty welcome and furnished him with means to continue his journey to China.
  • Jan. 12th--Fine breeze in the morning, but obliged to wait for the "Clumsy", which arrived at 10 A.M. How absurd are some descriptions of the White Nile, which state that there is no current! At some parts, like that from just above the Sobat junction to Khartoum, there is but little, but since we have left the Bahr el Gazal the stream runs from one and three-quarters to two and a half miles per hour, varying in localities. Here it is not more than a hundred yards wide in clear water. At 11.20 A.M. got under weigh with a rattling breeze, but scarcely had we been half an hour under sail when crack went the great yard of the "Clumsy" once more. I had her taken in tow. It is of no use repairing the yard again, and, were it not for the donkeys, I would abandon her. Koorshid Aga's boats were passing us in full sail when his diahbiah suddenly carried away her rudder, and went head first into the morass. I serve out grog to the men when the drum beats at sunset, if all the boats are together.
  • Rexillion and his force arrived at the Kitarssis palace on the third day and were met by their own men.Rexillion was led to the room where the deposed king was imprisoned.
  • When she opened her eyes, Hadrian was weaving through the tables as if searching for a suitable one. Avoiding the soldiers, he arrived at the door to the kitchens. He spoke in a hushed tone to a plump woman who watched him warily and then led him and Calista to a private room. Ledgers were lit by the wavering light of an oil lamp.
  • The porters looked on with some surprise at the singular hour selected for sight-seeing; but what was their astonishment to find that the party, having arrived at the end of the hall, instead of turning back again, very composedly unbuckled their belts, and having disposed of their sabres in a corner, took their places at the Fellows' table, and sat down amidst the collective wisdom of Greek lecturers and Regius professors, as though they had been mere mortals like themselves.
  • The result was that everybody at the Institute got busy several weeks before the holiday season, and the manner in which the products of girl ingenuity began to pile up must have been satisfying indeed to the head of the school. But the work was not all done when the Camp Fire arrived at Hollyhill, most of the girls still having enough to do to keep them busy almost up to Christmas eve.
  • The men shouldered their burdens and started off on the trail that had now grown familiar to the treasure seekers. The men were able to maintain a fairly rapid pace, and before long the party arrived at the edge of the clearing within which the treasure was supposed to be buried.
  • Then fifteen minutes more of that vigil over the dying, and then the eyes of Cobby, just arrived at Eshowe, were prying in, he at once conscious of atropa, the scarlet, the laughter ... And sore now his heart smote him and smarted, a lamentable outcry clamouring out of his bosom: "Now, Almighty God, help me, have pity ..." and in some moments he had her, trotting ponderously with her down the avenue for his hut, followed by Mandaganya and Sueela fluttering, and before long had her blood saturated with sulphate of morphia.
  • "Start your patrol without him. And when he catches up, tell him if he can't arrive at work on time, you can both sleep here. In one of the cells."
  • The machine to unload the gypsum wagons has arrived at rushcliffe halt.
  • By the time we arrived at the hideout, all I wanted to do was sit, but when we got there Robin Hood and I where both surrounded by Robins men and questions. It was hard to make out what everybody was saying. I knew they were confused though, b then a girls voice said broke through the others.
  • And now the flaming rays of the sinking sun have given place to a softer, mellower light, and the red afterglow is merging into the pearly grey of evening. The hillside is streaked with the dappled hides of cattle coming up the kloof, and many a responsive low greets the clamourous voices of the calves, shut up in the calf hoek, hungry and expectant. Then upon the ridge comes a white, moving mass of fleecy backs. It streams down the slope, raising a cloud of dust--guided, kept together, by an occasional kerrie deftly thrown to the right or left-- and soon arrives at its nightly fold. But the herd is nonplussed, for there is no Baas there to count in. He pauses a moment, looks around, then drives the sheep into the kraal, and having secured the gate, throws his red kaross around him and stalks away to the huts.
  • Louisa, not surprisingly, was in an excitable mood by the time she left Riverview, and from the New Town tram-stop to the shops in the town centre, she talked scathingly of Edwina and of hervexingguests. The shopping expedition only marginally improved her spirits, (although she wished she had brought a servant with her to carry her purchases) and by the time Frances and Louisa arrived at Rosewood, laden with innumerable parcel and bags, Louisa was sullen and unresponsive. George Brearlys appearance at the front door did nothing to improve Louisas disposition, and after he assailed her with derogatory remarks about shopping and shoppers in general, Louisa was even more irritable.
  • On arriving at Sudbury, half an hour after having left his comrade, Isaac made inquiries for Captain Baker's dwelling, and learned that had Nathan's proposition been carried out, they would have been forced to parade the prisoners through the entire settlement before coming upon the house.
  • Dantes, meanwhile, went on his way. Each step he trod oppressed his heart with fresh emotion; his first and most indelible recollections were there; not a tree, not a street, that he passed but seemed filled with dear and cherished memories. And thus he proceeded onwards till he arrived at the end of the Rue de Noailles, from whence a full view of the Allees de Meillan was obtained. At this spot, so pregnant with fond and filial remembrances, his heart beat almost to bursting, his knees tottered under him, a mist floated over his sight, and had he not clung for support to one of the trees, he would inevitably have fallen to the ground and been crushed beneath the many vehicles continually passing there. Recovering himself, however, he wiped the perspiration from his brows, and stopped not again till he found himself at the door of the house in which his father had lived.
  • Henry lost no time in replying. Glendower had been an open supporter of Richard, and had retired from court rather than own his successor as king. He had made his complaints against Lord Grey before Parliament, and his appeal had been rejected by an overwhelming majority. His attack upon Lord Grey was, therefore, viewed in the light of an insult to the royal power; and, a fortnight after Oswald and his party arrived at Sir Edmund's, a messenger arrived with a royal order, to all barons holding castles on the border, to proclaim Owen Glendower an outlaw, and to take all measures necessary to capture him.
  • All this takes time to tell, but I do not suppose that it took more than fifteen seconds to enact. I soon got the magazine of the repeater filled again with cartridges, and once more opened fire, not on the seething black mass which was gathering at the end of the kraal, but on fugitives who bethought them to climb the wall. I picked off several of these men, moving down towards the end of the kraal as I did so, and arriving at the corner, or rather the bend of the oval, in time to see, and by means of my rifle to assist in, the mighty struggle that took place there.
  • They were deep underground now, and the pressure of it was starting to get to Aiden. He was constantly nervous now, worrying about too many things to truly relax - if his theory about the breach being on the fifth floor was wrong, they were most likely doomed to die down here. The ceiling was much lower this far into the city as well, being little more than fifteen feet above their heads, acting as a constant reminder of their location. The sound of water splashing could be heard just up ahead, which puzzled Clavis no end, until they arrived at the edge of the stone floor, and looked out across a vast body of water.
  • The party had arrived at this place the night before, after four days of almost constant traveling. But here a blinding snowstorm had brought them to a halt, the driver of the sleigh refusing to trust himself and his turnout on the mountain trail beyond.
  • Of course, when I finally arrived at the farm I encountered a different story. The area was covered in a smoky haze and the smell of burning fields was overwhelming. I jumped from my horse and ran to the farmhouse. From the front of the farm it looked as if the house had survived the destruction. I tried to go through the front door, but it was barricaded shut, so I ran around the back and was greeted by acres of destruction. The stable was in pieces and carcasses of my father's horses were strewn all around me. The burning fields engulfed the horizon and the smoke blocked the sky.
  • Shylock could hear the noise well before they arrived at Bb's place. It seemed like hundreds of people talking, shouting and laughing all at once, and when they did finally materialise that's exactly what he saw. People (a loose description for all shapes and sizes) everywhere! He could recognise some of the life-forms he'd already seen on Bb's snow-covered beach.
  • At last he resolved to travel south, until he should arrive at the coasts where these strange sights before described were said to have been seen.
  • We slept that night in a deserted hacienda, and arrived at our home next day. Jos had ridden forward to inform my mother of her coming visitors, so that she might be able to provide them with food and drink.
  • After a day and a half's march, each step of which pained me with its slowness, we arrived at Nyneveh. The citizenry lined the streets, dressed in their brightest best, cheering and throwing petals. Horns and harps sounded out their tunes, discordant, but too jolly to not be pleasing. The day had been called a holiday and the law of merrymaking prevailed. Before the night was over, I knew that most of the city would be well and drunk, perhaps much of Ghalain. How many babes named Selene would be conceived this night? I chuckled at the thought. I was eager to see my Talia once more.
  • The following day, Wednesday, the party arrived at the DCs bungalow precisely at five am - in a police Jeep and a truck bearing the insignia of the Army. The SP was in the Jeep with his driver and handyman and another person, introduced as Inspector Aichhinga. All three people accompanying the SP were plainclothes policemen. The SP also wore civilian clothes. The driver and the handyman carried .303 Lee Enfield rifles. In the truck were two village elders, a scout, and the driver in military uniform. They were all now introduced to the Swami by the SP. When he came to the driver, the SP said: "This is Lt. Chakma from the Army. He is the marksman you requested."
  • We walked in silence, arriving at the cottage moments later. I walked in the door and made eye contact with Johna, who was still hard at work grinding herbs.
  • On the next day I was sent out to the 14th Brigade at the Rue de Paradis near Laventie. You will remember that the 14th Brigade had been left to strengthen the Indian Corps when the 2nd Corps had moved north. I arrived at Rue de Paradis just as the Brigade Headquarters were coming into the village. So, while everybody else was fixing wires and generally making themselves useful, I rushed upstairs and seized a mattress and put it into a dark little dressing-room with hot and cold water, a mirror and a wardrobe. Then I locked the door. There I slept, washed, and dressed in delicious luxury.
  • Because the flight from Bunia was late, he arrived at the airport in Entebbe after dark. The Ugandan in the arrival terminal had his name on a piece of cardboard and anxiously took his luggage and showed him to the van marked for the Grand Hotel. Horst didnt know that bandits occasionally stopped vehicles on the Entebbe-Kampala road at night and held onto the interior of the van as the driver sped over the deserted roadway, concentrating on the way ahead and checking his mirrors for headlights from behind. The driver became visibly more relaxed as he approached the edge of Kampala and eased off the accelerator to Horsts relief.
  • Since he had nothing better to do, Steve jumped into the shower with his personal sommelier, who managed to uncork some early-morning tension for Christianson. He never arrived at work before 9:00 am, and rarely made an appearance before 10:30 unless money was involved. He liked to heighten the anxiety of his staff and ensure that tasks would pile up, and there would be plenty of things to talk about when he finally arrived.
  • When we arrived at Zain Shabi, my luggage was examined and Bezrodnoff began to question me in minutest detail about the events in Uliassutai. We talked about three hours, during which I tried to defend all the officers of Uliassutai, maintaining that one must not trust only the reports of Domojiroff. When our conversation was finished, the Captain stood up and offered his apologies for detaining me in my journey. Afterwards he presented me a fine Mauser with silver mountings on the handle and said:
  • He had no doubt that Condor had determined to postpone the occasion until they had left the Pireus, at which point they were to call, as his service might be required there to interpret. Once away from the island, he would not be likely to be called upon to translate until they arrived at Constantinople.
  • But surprises did not come singly at that time. Call it a miracle, or a coincidence, or what you will, it is a singular fact that, on the very next day, there arrived at Sunny Creek cottage four travellers--namely, Jack Lumley, the black-haired pale-face, Peter Macnab, and Big Otter.
  • Towards the middle of April, to proceed with my regular yarn, within two months of the time fixed for the ratification of this paper treaty, our new chief arrived at Singapore; when, taking over the command from his predecessor, who at once started off in the homeward mail steamer, Admiral Hope sailed with the fleet to Shanghai--the Candahar forming part of the squadron that escorted our ambassador, Mr Bruce, to the mouth of the Peiho River, where he was appointed to meet the Chinese officials and with them journey on to Pekin, there to complete all the requisite formalities for the final execution of the treaty.
  • Jake had noticed, upon arriving at the library on the Tuesday in question, a white van parked in the back of the library with the words "Tree Company, Inc." painted on the side of the van in green lettering. Jake, seeing the vans side door was opened and no one was near it, decided to do some of his snooping. Of course he couldnt be content with a quick glance insidenot after he saw that inside the van were several blooming Library Trees. He just had to examine them more closely. Heres a tip-off for my precious reader: whenever a character examines something more closely, theyre going to run into troublethis is true in almost any story.
  • It had been a quiet night, without any sign of patrolling Akorans or wild animals, and Aiden was looking forward to getting some rest once they had arrived at Bracksford, which he roughly guessed they'd arrive at before dusk, assuming they set out within the hour. Given the rigours of the previous day, however, he had his doubts as to whether or not this would actually occur. But it wasn't importantjust the fact they continued to draw breath was enough for now.
  • Guests started arriving at 4:00 pm, as Kathy Melvin ventured out of her cozy Hicksville house and thought she would make a brief appearance before sneaking to All-American Burger on the way home. Her in-laws were in from Arizona and she was looking for any excuse to get out of the house and fly free for a while.
  • As she again wipes her cheek, she spots another petitioner from England just arriving at the French court. "And see where comes the breeder of my sorrow!" she cries angrily.
  • One by one, they arrived at the meeting place. The poor ship which had laboured so hard to bring them to this planet bid goodbye to this world by way of little explosions and a few hisses and crackles, in the background. Despite the fact that none of them were seriously injured, the crash-landing had left its mark upon all of the Raiders. Some had torn clothing, others had dirt and grass smears and still others limped over carrying their gear. Alb was the last one to arrive since he'd been unlucky enough to have his ejection get caught up on the one single tree that stuck out like a sore thumb from the landscape. Alb was munching on some leaves and was going into raptures about how good they tasted. Except for that tree, it was just empty land, grass and shrubs and lots of huge rifts  no trees, no animals  for as far as the eye could see.
  • "Wronged you!--why, after all, with what have I charged you?" said he, scoffingly; "but let that pass. I have formed my opinions, arrived at my conclusions. If I have not named them broadly, you at least seem to understand their nature thoroughly. I know the world. I am no novice in the arts of women, mademoiselle. Reserve your vows and attestations for schoolboys and simpletons; they are sadly thrown away upon me."
  • Eventually they arrived at a fortification along a major passageway and climbed several steps up to a narrow walkway shielded by a wall constructed of large stone blocks. They peered over the barricade, to look down a long wide tunnel littered with Orc and Ogre remains. In the distance, a good five minutes run by Dreth's estimate, a similar barricade faced them. The Enemy.
  • Landon arrives at the kitchen window first. Right before she stands on tiptoe to catch a glance too, he ducks and pulls her down with him. His finger goes to his lips to tell her to be quiet. A smile over takes her at the gesture. I dont speak, she thinks and covers her mouth, trying not to laugh.
  • The first day we went through grassland savannas, and arrived at the edge of the forest.
  • When they arrived at the inn, Bane pushed her into a chair and tied her to it with twine. While he was bent over her, she studied his face at close quarters, finding it hard to believe he was human. His white skin was so fine, smooth and matt; his long black hair gleamed like a raven's wing. His good looks belied the tales that those who worshipped the Black Lord were ugly, mutilated and dirty, but then, he was not a worshipper, she surmised. No scent clung to him, and his aura of power made her hair bristle.
  • Yes, Senor, answered Carnero. "There are, of course, trading steamers sailing out of Havana, which the Government might requisition, in case of need; but--now, let me consider--yes, it happens that on the day after to-morrow not a single steamer will be in port; and the first that may be expected is due to arrive at midnight of that day."
  • They took a leisurely drive up the coast, and the beautiful ocean views along the length of Highway One rejuvenated Omaris spirit. It was dark when they arrived at home, but despite the long trip, she wasnt tired.
  • Eventually they arrived at a fortification along a major passageway and climbed several steps up to a narrow walkway shielded by a wall constructed of large stone blocks. They peered over the barricade, to look down a long wide tunnel littered with Orc and Ogre remains. In the distance, a good five minutes run by Dreth's estimate, a similar barricade faced them. The Enemy.
  • Tom made the long drive homeward without further adventures. It was after sundown when he arrived at the farm and found Ralph, who was really an excellent cook, preparing supper.
  • Before I could reply, however, the commander seemed to have arrived at Mr Stormcock's opinion, that we were still carrying too much canvas, for he came to the break of the poop and shouted out to the boatswain's mate.
  • He had met Olwen when shed arrived at Rhuddlan as part of Lady Teleris entourage. Teleri was the niece of Prince Dafydd and Longswords intended bride. She was fifteen, haughty and hated the foreigners. She had been rumored to be a beauty, with thick reddish-brown hair, large, dark eyes and flawless white skin, but from the moment she entered Rhuddlan she was a disappointment in that regard. She walked about with a sour expression, her nose crinkled with distaste as if everywhere she went she smelled something awful and her obvious loathing for everyone and everything connected with the Norman fortress made her seem unattractive.
  • A shovel was thrown up to him. He seized it and shovelled volumes of snow from the house-top into the chimney. A moment later and two blankets were thrown up. Blondin spread one over the flames. It was shrivelled up instantly. He stuffed down the remains and spread the second blanket over them, while he shouted for a third. The third came, and, another bucket of water arriving at the same moment, with a large mass of snow detached from the roof, the whole were thrust down the chimney en masse, the flames were quenched and the house was saved.
  • When Wyck arrived at Toowoomba the first person he looked out for was Bill Adams, whom he found in the yard of the "Royal."
  • We were ferried across to the main shore, and both in our respective angareps were carried by the natives for about three miles: arriving at a deserted village, half of which was in ashes, having been burnt and plundered by the enemy, we were deposited on the ground in front of an old hut in the pouring rain, and were informed that we should remain there that night, but that on the following morning we should proceed to our destination.
  • "Methinks thou art more honest now than wise!—for, by oppressing and betraying me, thou mightst have sooner got another service"—obtained a new position. "Many so arrive at second mastersupon their first lords neck!
  • On arriving at the shore of the lake, where the men had thought it possible a boat might be found, no craft of any kind was to be seen.
  • Lord Henry gives Dorian a book that describes the wicked exploits of a nineteenth-century Frenchman; it becomes Dorians bible as he sinks ever deeper into a life of sin and corruption. He lives a life devoted to garnering new experiences and sensations with no regard for conventional standards of morality or the consequences of his actions. Eighteen years pass. Dorians reputation suffers in circles of polite London society, where rumors spread regarding his scandalous exploits. His peers nevertheless continue to accept him because he remains young and beautiful. The figure in the painting, however, grows increasingly wizened and hideous. On a dark, foggy night, Basil Hallward arrives at Dorians home to confront him about the rumors that plague his reputation. The two argue, and Dorian eventually offers Basil a look at his (Dorians) soul. He shows Basil the now-hideous portrait, and Hallward, horrified, begs him to repent. Dorian claims it is too late for penance and kills Basil in a fit of rage.
  • After that they had arrived at Dunkirk, where later on hundreds of thousands of British soldiers were destined to be landed.
  • Zachary gave up. If there was anything he'd learned since arriving at Station End, it was that Madame Kloochie seldom said anything of value. As she wiped her powdered sugar-covered lips on one thick forearm, he wondered if she even knew what a napkin was.
  • At eight o'clock in the morning Albert had arrived at Beauchamp's door. The valet de chambre had received orders to usher him in at once. Beauchamp was in his bath. "Here I am," said Albert.
  • Presently, they arrived at the church of Culdeny, a squat, stone-walled structure that featured the symbol of a sword, point down, with a halo around the hilt, displayed above the front doors - the symbol of the Church of Aielund. Some beautifully crafted, stain-glass windows added colour to the almost universally grey stone of buildings in Culdeny, and a small group of people were just leaving, as Aiden and the others stepped inside.
  • Still from time to time we contrived to catch some of them, and through one member of our party or the other to get at their stories. Really it was all one story. The slaving Arabs, on this pretext or on that, had set tribe against tribe. Then they sided with the stronger and conquered the weaker by aid of their terrible guns, killing out the old folk and taking the young men, women and children (except the infants whom they butchered) to be sold as slaves. It seemed that the business had begun about twenty years before, when Hassan-ben-Mohammed and his companions arrived at Kilwa and drove away the missionary who had built a station there.
  • The rough looking, dusty, and bearded miner, smiled good humouredly, as he replied, in a gentle tone of voice that belied his looks "Pretty well, friend; though not quite so well as some of my neighbours. I presume that you and your friends have just arrived at the mines?"
  • My story is told; for with the voyage of the Flora, adventurous though it was, this narrative has nothing to do; suffice it to say that having called at Tahiti and Tongatabu the little cutter safely passed Port Phillip Heads and arrived at Melbourne on the fifty-third day out from the island. Here Leslie duly cashed his draft for one hundred pounds, and with the proceeds thereof secured for Flora a passage to Bombay, that young lady having decided to go on at once to her father--without waiting to visit her Australian friends--in order that the judge's natural anxiety to see his daughter after her singular adventure might be gratified with as little delay as possible. And further to curtail that anxiety to its lowest limit, she despatched a cablegram to her father within an hour of her arrival in Melbourne. As for Dick, he allowed his affairs to stand during the two days that elapsed between their arrival and Flora's departure, devoting himself entirely to her.
  • And she knew the security cameras were eating it all up. Somewhere in the back there was a security guy with his hand hovering over the panic button that would send the reinforced steel bars crashing down over every exit and the police all over town dropping their donuts in a mad dash to arrive at the scene in time to gun her down. Now obviously Mary had never robbed a bank, in fact her police record was spotless, but there was no way to tell the bank that. No way to lie to the security camera that had seemingly stopped its gentle back and forth motion and instead settled on her. It was soaking her in.
  • It was about two o'clock in the afternoon when I arrived at the plantation. I immediately recommenced the issue of goods, which was suspended so hastily three days before.
  • He was relieved to finally arrive at the forge. He didn't want her to know it, but carrying her all that way was not easy. As soon as he took her up the stairs, he laid her on his bed and gave his burning muscles a break.
  • As the two arrived at the agreed meeting place there was no need to ask the others if they had had any luck. The Kid was nowhere in sight.
  • During this long series of storms the Cape had been doubled and the fleet was approaching the coast of Africa. On the 20th of July Mozambique was signalled. The Moors of this place showed a more agreeable disposition than they had done when Gama was there, and furnished the Portuguese with two pilots, who conducted them to Quiloa, an island famed for the trade in gold-dust which was carried on with Sofala. There Cabral found two of the missing ships, which had been driven to this island by the wind. A plot was on foot in Quiloa for a wholesale massacre of the Europeans, but this was frustrated by a prompt departure from the island, and the ships arrived at Melinda without any untoward incident. The stay of the fleet in this port was the occasion of ftes and rejoicings without number, and soon, revictualled, repaired, and furnished with excellent pilots, the Portuguese vessels sailed for Calicut, where they arrived on the 13th of December, 1500.
  • "Sure and that's what I feel like doing!" cried Mrs Gilmour in a very woebegone voice, she having only just succeeded in arriving at the scene of action, scrambling down with some difficulty from the top of the slope, the pathway being blocked at intervals by the struggling creepers which twined and interlaced themselves with the undergrowth, trailing down from the branches of the trees above, and making it puzzling to know which way to go. "I couldn't crawl a step further. What with scurrying to catch that dreadful steamboat, and then my fright of hearing the children scream, and now having to clamber down this mountain, I'm ready to drop!"
  • There was definitely a hop in the collective step of the older group just as Drew surmised. They arrived at the Beach Haven High School football field about 12:15 pm, which was five minutes earlier than the younger group who took their time and decidedly arrived fashionably late.
  • A man was at once sent back for the sledges. While waiting for these the rest set out on various tracks of ermine they had passed on the way, and three of these and a marten were killed before the sledges came up. The big elk was placed on one sledge, one of the females on each of the others. The fourth was skinned, cut up, and divided among the three sledges. Lightly as the sledges ran over the snow the men were all obliged to harness themselves to ropes to assist the deer, and it was late in the evening before they arrived at the hut. The fire was lighted at once. Godfrey undertook the cooking, while the rest skinned the bears and elk, cut them up, and hung up the carcasses on boughs beyond the reach of the dogs. These had a grand feast off the offal while the men were regaling themselves with fresh elk steaks.
  • They reached the gate together, but that was as far as they got, for just as they arrived at it they collided with a large man who was running toward the house.

  • They had arrived at their friends house. To the right of it was a stone shop with smoke belching from a flue. They both went up to the door of the shop and walked in. They were met with a wall of heat. The one-room shop was large. Brack, Kovosfather was by the wall on the right side of the building, standing in front of a large furnace that curved up from the ground like a teardrop. There was a long pipe that rose from the furnace to the ceiling. The furnace was made of some sort of clay, but it was impossible to distinguish from the black soot that covered it. Brack was working a billow with one hand and holding a metal rod in the other. The rod was deep in the fire; red was creeping up the rod toward Bracks glove. He was also wearing soot-black pants and what had once been a white shirt with sleeves rolled up past his elbows. As he worked the billows, sparks and flame roared out from the opening of the furnace like some monster from a childrens story.
  • No sooner had I arrived at the camp than the sky which was leaden and low began to drop its burden upon us. Packing up could not be done till the rain slackened, and we sheltered ourselves as well as we could. As we waited a deep roaring sound from not far off presently fell on our ears and we were puzzled to explain it till an examination showed a recently dry gulch filled with a muddy torrent which leaped the low cliff into the river, a sullen cascade. The San Rafael, too, was a booming flood. We packed the boats as soon as we could and ran down about two miles and a half to where the first boat was.

Kmita spread the news that the party was escorting the ambassador of the emperor, who was going from Silesia to Cracow.
  • Half an hour later Anna and Gray arrived at the shop in the old town. Gray produced a pair of pistols from under his greatcoat, checked their priming and handed one of them to Anna. Carefully, he pried the door open and they entered, pistols cocked and ready.
  • What a sudden change! First he had been beaten; then he had been painted black, for death. Then he had been released. Now he was to be killed. He had faint hope. It flickered when Girty passed him, and saying "I have friends in the next village," continued. It died completely when he arrived at the next village, and no Girty was there. His friend Simon had failed, and had gone back by another trail.
  • Six days after, Livingstone entered Cassange, where the trader Alvez had seen him passing through, and on the 31st of May he arrived at Saint Paul de Loanda. For the first time, and after a journey of two years, Africa had just been crossed obliquely from the south to the west.

  • During this period, two horsemen arrived at the camp, who proved to be messengers sent express for supplies from Montero's party; which had been sent to beat up the Crow country and the Black Hills, and to winter on the Arkansas. They reported that all was well with the party, but that they had not been able to accomplish the whole of their mission, and were still in the Crow country, where they should remain until joined by Captain Bonneville in the spring. The captain retained the messengers with him until the 17th of November, when, having reached the caches on Bear River, and procured thence the required supplies, he sent them back to their party; appointing a rendezvous toward the last of June following, on the forks of Wind River Valley, in the Crow country.
  • "One day a small troop of fifteen solders arrived at our village. As I fought to repay my debt to Jillians father, she was being cornered by two armored solders and she didnt have the strength that she has now. I killed the two of them with one swing of my weapon. As they fell, I picked up Jillian and ran her away from the battle. Keeping her safe and in my arms, we fell instantly in love with each other. Her parents made it out as well and they gave me their blessing for the two of us to be together. Even if they are a littledemanding." He strained the last word.
  • After a long though peaceful walk, they arrived at a large door leading into the tower. The door was constructed of black iron and aged wood planks. It was blocked open with a wooden wedge. Standing outside of the tower, they could feel the air inside was cool and dusty, smelling of granite, wood grains, and linseed oil.
  • He was not so smitten with the delightful situation of this ancient town, but that he abandoned it as soon as he could procure a post-chaise, in which he arrived at Paris, without having been exposed to any other troublesome adventure upon the road. He took lodgings at a certain hotel in the Fauxbourg de St. Germain, which is the general rendezvous of all the strangers that resort to this capital; and now sincerely congratulated himself upon his happy escape from his Hungarian connexions, and from the snares of the banditti, as well as upon the spoils of the dead body, and his arrival at Paris, from whence there was such a short conveyance to England, whither he was attracted, by far other motives than that of filial veneration for his native soil.
  • "Anybody seen Step's head; he's done gone and lost that, now. Always said he would have done it long ago, only Nature had it fastened on tight. But the catastrophe has arrived at last. Step's lost his head, fellows; not that it matters much. A liberal reward is hereby offered to the finder.
  • Accordingly, enormous efforts are made. Such trenches are ordinarily extremely deep; a man sweats, digs, toils all night-- for it must be done at night; he wets his shirt, burns out his candle, breaks his mattock, and when he arrives at the bottom of the hole, when he lays his hand on the "treasure," what does he find? What is the devil's treasure? A sou, sometimes a crown-piece, a stone, a skeleton, a bleeding body, sometimes a spectre folded in four like a sheet of paper in a portfolio, sometimes nothing. This is what Tryphon's verses seem to announce to the indiscreet and curious:--
