  • Mungo's resignation turned to pity as he glanced around the room. A husband and wife spoke in low, worried voices to each other. He was thin, painfully so, and his skin was grey. A middle-aged nurse entered and called a name. A woman on a stick rose awkwardly from her seat, and the nurse hurried to support her. Mungo watched their slow progress until they disappeared behind a door, the nurse declaring her name again for the benefit of the doctor. The man beside the vacant seat coughed. His face was red, laden with fat beneath a slack skin. His lips were moving and for a moment Mungo thought he was praying, but then realized he was rehearsing what he would say.
  • By this time the opossum had got near the top of the tree, and out upon one of the branches that grew horizontally. Along this the lynx followed; and had arrived almost within reach of the object of his pursuit, when the opossum, suddenly lapping the branch with her tail, let herself down to the limb below! The lynx appeared for a moment as if about to spring after; but the limb was a slender one, and he was not sure that he might be able to grasp it. He, therefore, turned back, evidently chagrined; and, descending by the main trunk, ran out upon the branch now occupied by the opossum. The latter, as before, again let herself down to another limb; and then, without waiting for her pursuer, to another still lower, until she hung on the very lowermost branch of the tree!
  • She climbed softly out of bed and tip-toed to the window, expecting to see one of the Ploughman's riders in the yard. It was late, and for a moment she wondered if there was trouble.
  • This time Baree let out no cry of pain or of fright. The wolf is kipichi-mao, as the Indians say. No hunter ever heard a trapped wolf whine for mercy at the sting of a bullet or the beat of a club. He dies with his fangs bared. Tonight it was a wolf whelp that Oohoomisew was attacking, and not a dog pup. The owl's first rush keeled Baree over, and for a moment he was smothered under the huge, outspread wings, while Oohoomisew--pinioning him down--hopped for a claw hold with his one good foot, and struck fiercely with his beak.
  • The man paused in his demonstration and for a moment or two stood in amazed silence. The audacity of the youngster appeared to paralyse his powers of speech and action.
  • "WHAT?! NO!" Isidor watched in horror as his trophy burst into flames and the fox jumped out and ran away. In his shock for a moment he didn't register that the flames started to lick his hand too. When he did, he screamed, let go of the sack and stomped on it to put out the fire. Meanwhile the fox stopped, turned around, stuck out its tongue at the hapless explorer and disappeared into the bushes.
  • "I know this is a lot to take in all at once" he went on, "I'm sorry Teri, there was no easy way to tell you." He paused for a moment and then went on. "The Eterians established this colony about 10 years ago, but they only live here during the warm months. Their bodies can't tolerate our Northern winters, so for the winter, they go a settlement in the the Outback of Australia which is their main colony here on Earth. There they will stay until spring. Believe me Teri, we are fortunate to have them here. And you certainly must be able to see why they must remain secretive. Think of the upheaval that would take place if Christians of the world found out that Jesus was really an alien! It would threaten the very fabric of our society; that's why the Eterians must walk the Earth under the guise of Humans." He paused again. "Are you ok?"
  • Yellow Bird still sat in the sand. Through the hours of fading starlight and coming dawn she had not moved. Slowly McKay rose to his feet. When he came to her, making no sound, she looked up. The shimmer of glistening dew was in her hair. Her long lashes were wet with it. Her face was very pale, and her eyes so large and dark that for a moment they startled him. She was tired. Exhaustion was in her slim, limp body.
  • When she returned to Gregory's side for a moment she held in her hand a tattered pair of rubber soled shoes. "They're better than nothing," she explained. "When you are a full fledged fisherman you won't need shoes. You'll get so you can use your toes like fingers and "

  • The boys had not long to wait, however, to discover the cause of the flash which Jimmie had seen. Almost following the boy's words came a dazzling beam of light, piercing the dark shadow like an arrow. for a moment the boys were blinded as the searchlight's flame played on the forward part of their vessel.
  • He moved closer, and for a moment it seemed he would put a hand on her shoulder. He didn't. For all she knew, it might burn her.
  • No, I have not promised--and I will not promise, he said, holding her face so that she could not look away from him. "Forgive me for--for--doing this--" And before she could move he caught her for a moment close in his arms, holding her so that he felt the quick beating of her heart against his own, the sweep of her hair and breath in his face. "This is why I will not go back," he cried softly. "It is because I love you--love you--"
  • Bruegen slowed his roll for a moment and tried to see through the lights where the voice came from, "Who said that?" he said in his best authoritarian voice.
  • I felt the frailty of human thoughts and human intentions, and banished the terrible idea from my mind. Still I could not feel but that our case, to outward appearance, was very desperate. Porpoise himself was wounded, I found, though the pain he suffered did not allow him for a moment to relax in his defence of the vessel. His voice was heard everywhere as loud and cheering as before, encouraging our crew to persevere.
  • "You are not going to run away, Baree. Non, you are going to stay with me, and we will kill that man-beast if he dares do to me again what he did back there." She flung back the loose hair from about her flushed face, and for a moment she forgot Baree as she thought of that half-minute at the edge of the chasm. He was looking straight up at her when her glance fell on him again. "Non, you are not going to run away--you are going to follow me," she whispered. "Come."
  • Weak from terror, Rokoff sank shuddering into the bottom of the dugout. for a moment he could not realize the good fortune that had befallen him--all that he could see was the figure of a silent, struggling white man disappearing beneath the surface of the river to unthinkable death in the slimy mud of the bottom.
  • "Of course." The werewolf sat down on his haunches and tilted his head, waiting for him. Logan joined him on the cold ground and stared at him for a moment.
  • The attacking army, a party of Phoenicians, hadn't encountered this defensive maneuver before, perhaps because they were a seafaring people and usually conducted their martial affairs in ships of the line. They stopped for a moment to look it up in Clauswitz, then they attacked, running around and around in circles, waving their spears and yelling insults.
  • Thinking back over the day, he realized that his anger had surprised Connie. It was the first time he had shown anger since Aidan's accident and it had stopped her in her tracks. She had even kissed him good-bye at the station, for Christ's sake - to the amused approval of the children - and had deferred to him all afternoon. Could it be that she approved? He thought about that for a moment and dismissed it. She was humouring him, afraid he might upset the apple-cart.
  • His hand grasped the hilt of the sword and for a moment his head swam with confusion. His head jerked of its own doing, ad he found himself staring upon the spirit form of Shayed, except at that moment the ghostly image had no form. He saw a red cloud. It swirled about, a crimson storm surge, and finally it began to take shape.
  • She got a pass because of the situation, but Omari was about to begin an automatic smacking policy for anyone that asked that question. Despite her annoyance with the constant questions regarding her wellbeing, she stopped for a moment to take stock; she was tired, more so than she might be under normal circumstances, but she actually felt okay. Perhaps the exhilaration of the intense flight was blotting out other sensations with the flood of adrenaline, but she would worry about that later when the rush faded.
  • "Now, think for a moment what happens when all these goblin packs that are spread over the forest, the mountains, and maybe even the desert hear that a serp has taken a human town the size of Connel. You dont think for a moment theyre not going to seize on this and head for Connel? How many will end up there? Would anyone have the time to count that high? And once theyre there, what do they do? They storm every surrounding farm and take everything they can lay their hands on. And what do we do?
  • Jimmie Dale, still politely curious, turned to watch her. for a moment bewilderment and a puzzled look were in her face--and then a sort of surprised relief.
  • The Baron for a moment forgot the importance of what he had been told as he watched the graceful beauty of the movement that revealed not only some eccentricity but personal vanity of a harmless kind and wholesome tastes and talents.
  • Nicolette, they are torturing Diane. The viper Hugues even tried to rape her. Speaking it aloud sent a shock of horror through him. for a moment he was unable to go on. A sob bubbled up in his chest, convulsing him. He choked it down.
  • The Emigrant stood nonplussed for a moment and scratched the back of his head, tilting his soft hat still further forward on his nose.
  • The man spoke into the hole, three words of a strange language. The sound of rushing water stilled for a moment and then something rose up from the hole in the ground. It was the figure of a man, a grotesque parody with limbs that moved oddly, as if they had extra joints. It was formed out of water and darkness that swirled together. Gaps opened and closed in it with wet, sucking sounds. A chill exuded from its dark substance.
  • As I completed my preparations the light failed me; the last level streak of sunlight disappeared, and a fading twilight only remained. I sighed in unison with the pensive hour, and threw open the window, intending to look out for a moment before going downstairs. I perceived instantly that the window underneath mine was also open, for I heard two voices in conversation, although I could not distinguish what they were saying.
  • We all four walked down the gangway toward the ferry, and for a moment all the conversations stopped amidst the noisy engines and general clanging of the dock. Once seated up towards the front, Patti asked about my work. I gave the brief outline, the overarching mission of research and disease prevention, and the frustration in the face of slow progress, but steered away from my own dull day to day number crunching. I wondered if she could read any of that in my face; if so, she gave no sign.
  • "I selected a large poultice and placed it on the Sergeant's festering back. His shoulders arched at the contact and I quickly covered his mouth to muffle his groan. As I waited I used my ears to determine Marta's position. There was a shuffling below. for a moment the door light was again blocked. The shadow disappeared and all was silent below. I strained my ears but heard only the quiet buzz of insects and the far off lowing of cattle."
  • I know not what to think. My kinsman said that the black slave reported there were but twenty men in all with the sheik, and not more than half of these could be considered as fighting men, therefore they could not have resisted for a moment the force against them. It is possible they may have fled into the desert. The tribes know of wells whose existence is kept a secret from all, and it may be that such a well was known to the sheik and that he has made for it. It may be that the negro guide led the party in pursuit. Misfortune may have happened; they may have lost their way and all perished from thirst, though it would be strange indeed were none able to make their way back to the oasis.
  • The great beast had stopped for a moment after sending our bearer flying, and then, seeing him down, snorted a little, lowered his head, and would doubtless have tossed and trampled him to death had there not suddenly come a whirring whizzing noise from some bushes in a hollow on our right, when something struck the buffalo a heavy blow upon the muzzle, making it turn up its head, utter a furious roar, and charge at the bushes.
  • Granite blocks and boulders everywhere, save that in places there was a patch of white heather, ling, or golden starry ragwort; and in spite of their determination the desire was strong upon them to turn and hurry back. But for either to have proposed this would have been equivalent to showing the white feather; and for fear that Vince should for a moment fancy that he was ready to shirk the task, Mike said roughly, "Come on," and continued the climbing, reaching the top first, and stretching out his hand, which was grasped by Vince, who pulled himself up and sank down by his companion's side to gaze in wonder from the rugged ridge they had won.
  • "Yes!" Ralph leaped up with excitement and when he landed the ledge crumbled a bit. for a moment he teetered and Edeline thought he might slip, but he didn't.
  • For as the wave flung him downward his feet touched bottom, and he stood for a moment erect, on solid, hard sand, in water that scarcely reached above his knees. It was for a moment only that he stood, however, for the sweep of the water bore him down, and he fell forward. Before he could regain himself another wave came and hurled him farther forward.
  • The room went perfectly quiet for a moment while Sparshotts and Roberts eyes met. There was a definite challenge on both their parts, but one that would not be called upon. Robert could feel Sparshotts wrath like a burn on his flesh. He knew Sparshott probably would have liked to blacken his other eye right about now. He had challenged the man in front of the entire population of James City County. Oh well, he would probably never get another drink of that fine corn whiskey ever again!
  • As for Harry, he gripped his brother's hand and the boys at once set about their preparations to outwit their treacherous enemy. In the midst of their bustle an interruption as utterly unexpected as it was for a moment alarming occurred.

  • The boat was still swaying violently, and Ned could at first see no good reason for it, but presently a commotion in the water, a commotion not caused by the wind and rain, caught his eyes and he advanced to the stern.

  • Mustushimi, the chief of them all, had succeeded in making his escape, and for a moment the detective considered dashing down that charged stairway in pursuit of him.
  • The boy hesitated for a moment as to whether he should stop or run, and as he did so Gerald and Jack came out upon the scene.
  • The morning went by fast and it seemed far too soon that they were all off to get ready. Kassie clung tight to Rumal for a moment when he bent to embrace her.
  • She felt creaky and old as she rolled to her stomach and slid from the back of the animal. While Arvin rummaged through the packs for food she used a healing spell to cure her aches. As she replaced her hedge witch wand beneath her tunic her hand brushed the Garlan branch. for a moment she considered trusting him and dispelling the protection spell. No, she decided, it did not feel quite safe yet. The boy had improved a good deal but he was still unpredictable.
  • She thought for a moment and then nodded her head. 'All right,' she answered. 'We've met a lot in London during the war.'
  • Nehemiah nodded shortly and spun in the direction of the portal at the rear of the ailing manor. In moments he was gone, although Mirie could hear his footsteps leading steadily away from her. She waited for a moment and then took a deep breath.
  • The night was as dark as the inside of a cow! Mr Pryce, the chief mate of the full-rigged sailing ship Golden Fleece--outward-bound to Melbourne--was responsible for this picturesque assertion; and one had only to glance for a moment into the obscurity that surrounded the ship to acknowledge the truth of it.
  • "Augie," Daisy squeaked as she ran over and gave her a hug. It was a perfect trap for a moment later Daisys net swooped over Augies hand.
  • Men! she said, "this is Christmas Day-." I didn't hear any more for, at the sound of her voice, Jack Moonlight jumped up as if he'd sat on a baby. He started forward, stared at her for a moment as if he couldn't believe his eyes, and then said, "Hannah!" short and sharp. She started as if she was shot, gave him a wild look, and stumbled forward; the next moment he had her in his arms and was steering for the private parlour.
  • Instead, his pistol-hand dropped. He stood there for a moment as though paralyzed with utter astonishment. Outside, the chant had ceased. Through the doorway no living beings were visible--nothing but a thin and tenuous vapor, radiant in the gas-flare which droned its never-ending roar.
  • Easy and negligent as was the posture assumed by Deerfoot the Shawanoe, his eyes were never at rest. Resting for a moment on the promontory, they darted to the right and left down the valley, and even took in the shifting clouds in the sky above. But it was the peak which riveted his attention, and which was scrutinized with minute closeness until the gathering gloom shut it from sight.
  • There was the sound of an explosion, and for a moment the grip on the boy's throat seemed to grow even tighter. But for a moment only, and then the hands relaxed, Chester heard a faint moan, and, drawing in great gasps of fresh air, the boy fell into unconsciousness, just as the flap to the tent was jerked hurriedly aside and many men rushed in.
  • The man straightened himself up, stared open-mouthed for a moment at the strange apparition, and then, with a yell either of terror or astonishment, bolted into the house as hard as he could run.
  • "I am truly sorry, dear captain," the ambassador replied calmly. "I know it takes some getting used to this climate during the winter. If one ever does...get used to it that is..." He hesitated for a moment.
  • Paul stared at the order for a moment as though he could not believe it was real. Then exclaiming, "Oh goody, Derrick! I'm so glad to get out of that hateful, back-aching breaker," he gave a funny little twirl of his body around his crutch, which was his way of expressing great joy.
  • His Excellency for a moment surveyed the line, and then said, turning round to one of his aides-de-camp, "Order up Major-General Tinkler and the cavalry."
  • A few hundred yards to the rearward the supports advanced alertly, ready to scatter into a thin line of skirmishers at the first shot and rush ahead to where the points halted. In the rear of them the infantry columns, with one rumble of artillery close to the front, moved and halted, as the thin line to the front paused for a moment to scan ahead, then pushed on again.
  • Over the years, he'd distanced himself from it, and let the past die in some way. But he still drifted back occasionally and was awash for a moment or a day, with shame.
  • Range stayed and watched for a moment longer. He inspected the campground. The man had his own horse, a nice one. He was about Ranges age, maybe younger, and well dressed. His shirt was a thick cream color and in the flickering campfire his trousers were black, or blue.Ranges family seemed in no immediate danger. Miriam was casually carrying on a conversation with the stranger, who was sitting on a log, skinning an animal.The children were sitting next to their mother sipping on mugs. The wagon was parked behind them; the horse was tied up, grazing.
  • With the lights of the village like pin points below him, Hal, who had not for a moment lost his presence of mind, checked the rise of the machine, and headed toward the southwest, gauging his direction by a compass before him, the moonlight luckily permitting him to see.
  • Fenj lowered his head for a moment then straightened and repeated parts of what he had already told Tika and Farn. ‘The Lady decrees that these two must be readied for a journey, as quickly as they are able. They must seek for something which has been lost, and on their success depends the continuity of our world.’
  • It was a possibility that Haworth had never considered. Perhaps hed merely been naive, or perhaps hed not wanted to believe it. He had known since the coronation of the Young King two years ago that Hugh was interested in Bolsover, but he hadnt assumed the interest was so deep or physical. In all the years he and Hugh had been intimate, Haworth had never had even the faintest hint that Hugh might have been sleeping with another man. He felt for a moment as if his stomach had been ripped out of him. His heart pounded furiously. He dared not turn around; he thought everyone was staring at him, knowing hed fallen out of favor, silently laughing at him. He had been betrayed by the one person he could never betray.
  • Norman hesitated for a moment naturally enough, for it was mounting a bare-backed unbroken colt; but the next minute he had accepted a leg up, and was in his place, with the result that the beautiful creature reared right up, pawing the air, and threatened to fall over backwards.
  • They had to wait a few moments to see Major French, who was exceedingly busy. They need no one to tell them what was going on. At the platform trains were waiting, and, even while they looked on, one after another drew out, loaded with soldiers. The windows were whitewashed, so that, once the doors of the compartments were closed, none could see who was inside. There was no cheering, which seemed strange at first, but it was so plain that this was a precautionary measure that the boys understood it easily enough. Finally Major French, an energetic, sunburned man, who looked as if he hadn't slept for days, came to them. They handed him the papers they carried. He glanced at them, signed receipts which he handed to them, and then frowned for a moment.
  • Claire Vinson walked by her mother and a flash of brilliant light blinded her for a moment before she saw her mother and a familiar face on one side in her vision, and her grandmother and another man on the other side. The glared at each other until the tension built to a crescendo, at which point the four people ran at each other and her vision concluded with a cloud of dust that she tried to thin out by sweeping her right hand back and forth.
  • Come now, said John. "This fellow has overreached himself at last. He's come here; perhaps it won't be so easy for him to get out. I'll have all the servants ready. Do you keep up your spirits. Don't get frightened, but be plucky. Bluff him, and when the time comes ring the bell, and I'll march in with all the servants." Potts looked for a moment at his son with a glance of deep admiration.
  • I thought for a moment and my facial expression conveyed some uncertainty. I was trying not to look at Wayne because I would surely break out into tear-streaming laughter if our eyes met.
  • They both stare at one another for a moment then Bob says, "Molotov cocktails. Damn, if we start tossing fire bombs, we're gonna be targets. I just know it. He's setting us up for target practice. We're throw aways, man! We're dead men! We're getting into some serious shit here. Pete didn't come all the way from Des Moines for the climate. He's setting up something nasty. I got a real bad feeling about this."
  • "I? I?" He couldn't complete a sentence. Horrible pain began to flood into his emptiness; a pain that no hand could comfort. The room seemed to shift suddenly to the left, but when he felt a jolt to his shoulder he realized that he had fallen into the side of the doorway. He stepped on something hard on the floor. When he moved his foot he saw that it was a small gold object. He watched it for a moment as a tear fell beside it. He blinked slowly as he tried to clear his head enough to do something about this situation. When he looked up, Mirra was in front of him.
  • A hand grabbed Bryan by the shoulder, from behind, and he jumped and grabbed the dashboard and his heart must have stopped for a moment.
  • Caislyn's eyes grew wide for a moment as she didn't expect Jaxon to come out and call the vampire's bluff. She hoped Jaxon knew what she was doing.
  • The ground about the garage seemed suddenly to have sprouted soldiers. There were men everywhere, hundreds of them, advancing in loose order. for a moment Paul hung to the window, fascinated by the sight. Then he caught himself.
  • They had gone about a hundred yards when Appoyas stopped, and his pursuers could see that he was standing on the very edge of a black chasm. for a moment he stood and faced them, his eyes flashing fiercely in the light of the lamp.
  • The corridor itself was dark; and Jimmie Dale, satisfied that he was fairly safe from observation, stole softly forward. He passed two doors on his left--and the curious arrangement of the building that had puzzled him for a moment became clear. The store made the front of an old tenement building, with apartments above, and the rear of the store was a sort of apartment, too--the old lady's living quarters.
  • It happens so fast that I have to wonder for a moment why I'm so anxious but almost as quickly I decide that I'd rather not think about it; that I just want to relax. I'm going through a stack of cd's, looking for a particular onemy medication musicI choke back some prescription pills (though none of them was prescribed for me; they're gleanings taken from many different sources), press play and voilastress reduction, except for the times when that doesn't work and at those times I fear to slip back into my old alcoholic ways of coping and not coping.
  • We would not for a moment have it supposed that it is unnatural to love such a man. Quite the reverse. But when such a man is a perfect stranger, has never uttered a word in one's presence, or vouchsafed so much as a glance, and is gravely, stolidly engaged in the unsavoury work of greasing some of the tackling of a boat, it does seem unaccountable that he should be unwittingly capable of stirring up in another man's bosom feelings of ardent goodwill, to put it mildly.
  • "Angel of goodness!" I muttered gratefully, and being still half dazed, I brought some of my Court tricks into that chamber by taking her hand and carrying it towards my lips. But ere I had imprinted the intended kiss upon her fingers - and by some miracle they were not withdrawn - my eyes encountered hers again. I paused as one may pause who contemplates a sacrilege. for a moment she held my glance with hers; then I fell abashed, and released her hand.
  • His mother stopped dabbing for a moment and looked from me to Andrew to Emma and then back to me. "Over you?" she asked Emma. Emma flushed and nodded.
  • His sense of direction stood him in good stead now. Almost stifled, his hands and face scorched by the intense heat, he ran up the stairs. At the top, where the air was somewhat clearer, he paused for a moment for breath, then dashed for the room where he knew Hal lay.
  • The hunchback paused for a moment in his round to make a motion for silence. "Famously, gentlemen, famously. But you must not disturb my incantations."
  • Philip came near to Jean now. He placed his two hands on the half- breed's shoulders, and for a moment looked at him without speaking. His face was strangely white.
  • She gave him the hand from which she had taken the ring, and for a moment the warm thrill of it lay in his own. "Thank you for the wonderful afternoon you have given me, Mr. Holt. I shall never forget it. It is dinner time. I must say good night."
  • He did not finish giving voice to the fear that Cassidy was dead-- or dying, and for a moment he saw only the big staring eyes of the girl as the gray-bearded man helped him with his burden. Not until the Irishman was on a cot in the cabin did he discover how childishly weak he had become and what a terrific struggle he had made with the weight on his shoulders. He sank into a chair, while the old trapper worked over Cassidy.
  • 'Are we to have nothing tonight?'said one of them, with a low laugh, as he pointed to the bag which she had thrown upon the floor, and which moved as though there were some living thing within it. For answer she nodded her head. One of the men jumped forward and opened it. If my ears did not deceive me there was a gasp and a low wail, as of a half smothered child. The men closed round, whilst I was aghast with horror. But as I looked, they disappeared, and with them the dreadful bag. There was no door near them, and they could not have passed me without my noticing. They simply seemed to fade into the rays of the moonlight and pass out through the window, for I could see outside the dim, shadowy forms for a moment before they entirely faded away.
  • Lornya had smiled and bowed gently to each one as they were introduced, but she focused a bit more on the Knight, "Ristalln Derimegh. It's been years." She stepped before him and he dipped his head down for a moment.
  • The boy ranchers looked at the figure upon the ground. The man groaned and opened his eyes. He stared straight into the eyes of Bud. for a moment hostility glared out at the boy, then Delton half closed his eyes as though he were trying to think. The men gathered about were quiet, watching their prisoner. He wet his lips with his tongue.
  • The hare struggled for a moment or two, and then crouched down in the man's arm, with its heart throbbing and great eyes staring round at its captors.
  • He was still the most beautiful and perfect creature I had ever seen, and it shocked me for a moment to look at him. There was no denying that his actions and character were vile and evil. It was an impossible situation. He looked at me tenderly, and I knew it would hurt him, on some level, to watch as I was killed next.
  • I stood for a moment stupefied. Then I burst into tears. Then I embraced them all, and said I know not what of pity and sympathy and affection. My God! to think of such a fate as this awaiting the family of Ralph Brandon. Did you know this, oh, Teresina? If so, why did you keep it secret? But no--you could not have known it. If you had this would not have happened.
  • Now on the top of the mountain was a stretch of land almost flat and stoneless, over which they cantered forward, gathering speed as the horses recovered their wind till the pace grew fast. Suddenly the stallions threw themselves on to their haunches and stopped, as well they might, for they were on the verge of a chasm, at whose far foot a river brawled in foam. for a moment they stood; then, at some word from the Arab, wheeled round, and, bearing to the left, began to gallop back across the tableland, until they approached the edge of the mountainside, where the brethren thought that they would stop.
  • Scotty ran for the truck cab, climbed in, and started the engine. The Ifugaos stopped their yelling to look. for a moment they milled around, uncertain, then Scotty threw the truck into gear and started directly for them.
  • She looked around and saw that Brian was watching them. He looked empty and lonely and beaten, and for a moment she felt sorry for him and yearned that all three of them could be together in a warm embrace.

  • At length the dawn began to flush the east, and with crimson radiance light up the great unmeasured dome, putting out the stars that had shone as watch fires throughout the night. Mrs. Lloyd had risen from her knees, and was sitting close beside the bed, watching every breath that Bert drew; for who could say which one would be the last? The daylight stole swiftly into the room, making the night-light no longer necessary, and she moved softly to put it out. As she returned to her post, and stood for a moment gazing with an unutterable tenderness at the beloved face lying so still upon the pillow, a thrill of joy shot through her, for a change seemed to have taken place; the flushed features had assumed a more natural hue, and the breath came more easily. Scarcely daring to hope, she stood as if entranced. Presently a tremor ran through Bert's frame, he stirred uneasily, sighed heavily, and then, as naturally as a babe awaking, opened wide his big, brown eyes.
  • It is well, I answered. Then, stones having been piled up by me and the eunuch who was with us on a certain spot at the base of the pyramid, to somewhat more than the height of a man, I climbed on them and searched for the secret mark, no larger than a leaf. I found it with some trouble, for the weather and the rubbing of the wind-stirred sand had worn even the Ethiopian stone. Having found it, I pressed on it with all my strength in a certain fashion. even after the lapse of many years the stone swung round, showing a little opening, through which a man might scarcely creep. As it swung, a mighty bat, white in colour as though with unreckoned age, and such as I had never seen before for bigness, for his measure was the measure of a hawk, flew forth and for a moment hovered over Cleopatra, then sailed slowly up and up in circles, till at last he was lost in the bright light of the moon.

It was, of course, closed, and the warder was asleep; so that, until he dismounted, and kicked and shouted, no one challenged him.
  • The words affected everyone. The servant was weeping as quietly as she could manage while she began to sew Tannis's wound shut. The rest of them just stared at the Emperor for a moment before he turned back to the window.
  • At this invitation the stranger came forward to the fire and stood for a moment without speaking, gazing at the boys with eyes strained to their utmost in an effort to make them look piercing.
  • They were not there! for a moment he thought perhaps he had dreamed it all. "I often go to all sorts of strange places when I am asleep," he said to himself. "Pretty soon I'll wake up in the cave." He waited to wake up, but he didn't wake up. He kept right on being out of doors and up a tree, and his parents kept on being gone. Then he remembered all about everything.
