  • A swart-elf warrior stood in the doorway. 'My lord,’ he began. 'The dwarves are invading! They ride across the plain towards us! I….’ He broke off suddenly, as Prince Helgrim struck him across the face with his gauntlets.
  • As with all wars, a high toll was taken by the working class and the poor. Monies that should have gone towards the betterment of its citizens, was swallowed up by the war machine. After that many years of fighting, little money was left for anything else.
  • Just as Pouchskin had reached the bottom of the slope, his angry assailant, with a terrific growl, rushed forth from the smoke, and galloped directly towards him.
  • After a long wait, the door of the hall opened. A tall, impressive looking man walked in, confidence was pouring from the way he walked. He must be in his late thirties. A black attach case hung in his left hand. He strode towards the table and took the opposite seat.
  • The next four days were spent in shooting expeditions, and although they met with no wild beasts, they secured a large number of bird skins for the doctor. On the fifth day a native ran in and said that boats with white men were coming. The midshipmen ran down to the bank, and saw the ship's two cutters and a gig approaching. The captain himself was in the stern of the latter, and the doctor was sitting beside him. A minute or two later they were shaking hands with the officers, and saying a few words to the men, who were evidently delighted to see them again. Just as the greetings were over, Hassan, in a rich silk sarong and jacket, came down towards them. He was leading his little daughter, and six Malays followed them.
  • 'Nothing,' Frank snapped back, turning his head towards the shop window as a distraction. 'I can't believe you convinced me to go jogging in this weather.'
  • At length it was signalled, and Hugh got back into his car. Feverishly he scanned the faces of the passengers as they came out into the street, until, with a sudden quick jump of his heart, he saw her, cool and fresh, coming towards him with a faint smile on her lips.
  • Brightly coloured tropical fish darted through the magnificent, untouched coral growth. Some ventured up towards the divers, completely unafraid. A huge groper lurked in the distant background, trying to disguise himself against a wall of rock. The trio settled onto a patch of white sand. Lloyd then led the way towards the edge of the reef. Ben was expecting to see damage everywhere, but that wasnt the case. He noted two large concrete blocks with heavy chain coiled in the sand beside them. Someone had obviously cut the chain from the diving pontoon at the surface level. He wondered where the diving set construction was. All he could see was coral reef, until Lloyd swam under a ledge in the coral and disappeared. Liz and Ben followed. Inside was a huge man made cavern with underwater lights mounted on brackets in the ceiling and at various places in the walls. This cavern adjoined the real coral reef at a point where a black hole opened up under a cluster of bright blue stag horn coral, each stem tipped with brilliant white.
  • Mr. Conor glanced upwardand without fanfare the seagulls dispersed faithfully, just as they had last Saturday night. The girls and Maggie gawked with disbelief. Mr. Conor focused on one of the dispersing seagulls, one that circled out over the water, south to north, and was now curving back towards shoretowards them. It bore down on them at high speed
  • Pacian reached out and attempted to open the top drawer, but found that it was locked. At this moment, Merin called outNow!’, and Aiden noticed movement out of the corner of his eye, turning to see another Raelani - this one male - launch a fist-sized rock towards Colt's head from a sling. He seemed to have appeared out of nowhere, but there were many pieces of furniture he could have been hidden behind. Reacting instinctively, Aiden lunged forward and pushed the big man out of the way, just in time to avoid having his head cracked open.
  • Mealle's glowing eyes turned to the fortress, where men ran about with torches, alarmed by what was happening below. Its black slit mouth curved in a smile as it formed legs and stepped from the fire, turning towards Mirra, who backed away. Its gaze slid over her with a sickening touch of dark fire, and her frantic eyes sought Bane. He merely watched her, smiling, his hard stare challenging her to defy him and run. She stood her ground, the blackened earth burning her feet.
  • Half an hour later the scattered lights of the little camp winked and twinkled for the last time. Turning, she set her face forward, and, adjusting the cushions to her comfort, strained her tired eyes towards the rising and falling shadow of her boatman. She seemed borne along on a mystic river of gloom that hissed and gurgled about her, invisible but all-pervading, irresistible, monstrous, only the ceaseless, monotonous creak of the rowlocks breaking the silence.
  • For the first thirty miles of the upward course, the character of the river undergoes but little change. The left side continues bold, with the exception of a few extensive flats, sometimes overflowed, and a remarkable rocky elevation, about twenty-five miles up, to which we gave the name of The Fort, as suggested by its bastion-like appearance, though now called Table Hill in the chart. To the right the shore remains low, studded with mangroves, and still, from appearance, subject to not unfrequent inundations: towards the mouth, indeed, it is partially flooded by each returning tide. Thirty-five miles from its mouth its whole appearance undergoes the most striking alteration. We now enter the narrow defile of a precipitous rocky range of compact sandstone, rising from 4 to 500 feet in height, and coming down to the river, in some places nearly two miles wide, in others not less than twenty fathoms deep, and hurrying through, as if to force a passage, with a velocity sometimes not less than six miles an hour.
  • 'But I beseech you, do not go forth in anger with me. In a long life of acts which were often not pleasant to do, and which sometimes did wring my heart, I have never had so heavy a task as now. Believe me that if the time comes for you to change your mind towards me, one look from you will wipe away all this so sad hour, for I would do what a woman can to save you from sorrow. Just think. For why should I give myself so much labor and so much of sorrow? I have come here from my own land to do what I can of good, at the first to please my friend Joan, and then to help a sweet young sir, whom too, I come to love. For him, I am ashamed to say so much, but I say it in kindness, I gave what you gave, the blood of my veins. I gave it, I who was not, like you, his lover, but only his physician and his friend. I gave his my nights and days, before death, after death, and if my death can do his good even now, when he is the dead UnDead, he shall have it freely.'She said thim with a very grave, sweet pride, and Artemis was much affected by it.
  • The boys were bewildered. The steamer should by this time have had her nose turned towards Hook-and-Line. To round Grief Head she was keeping amazingly far out to sea.
  • The dinosaur looked bemused for a while; then, as if shrugging its shoulders, it nodded in admittance. The Captain smiled, but only for a second- for its nod was nonchalant and it seemed not to care about the Captains words. Maybe it did not even understand. Whatever the reason, the dinosaur decided that Bluebeard should be its next victim and moved its head towards him, its vast jaws open in anticipation.
  • Before Leonard could reach any sort of decision, Gaskin rang his gong for dinner. The boy arose and walked buoyantly towards the mess hall. He was hungry, too. Ever since he had cut rations, he had been eating the same fare as the men.
  • Although she had indignantly refused to believe the scandal, it nevertheless rankled, and she found herself watching her husband with jealous eyes, noticing his seeming indifference towards her and his many absences from home. Then came a day when she caused her chair to be borne down Mount Street at the very moment when Richard was coming out of No. 16.
  • But the werekin shared none of Liliths conviction. They were moving towards the edge of the stage step by cautious step, as if afraid to attract attention.
  • While he was thus recovering his breath, Michael Angelo reached the spot, and explained that there was another place of descent not far off, and led the way towards it. Here they found the side of the cone all covered with loose sand. Down this they went. At every step they sank in up to their ankles, and the sliding soil bore them down, so that for every step they took they were carried the length of two or three steps.
  • "My lord of Gloucester hath conveyed him hence! Some five or sixand thirty of his knights, hot questrists after himmet him at gate, who, with some other of the lords dependants, are gone with him towards Doverwhere they boast to have well armed friends!" he adds, pointedly.
  • The appalling influence of the keen, as it is called, had been familiar to me from my infancy; but it needed the awful situation I was placed in to consummate its horrors. It was at once my accusation and my doom. I knew well--none better--the vengeful character of the Irish peasant of the west, and that my death was certain I had no doubt. The very crime that sat upon my heart quailed its courage and unnerved my arm. As the boatmen looked from us towards the shore and again at our faces, they, as if instinctively, lay upon their oars, and waited for our decision as to what course to pursue.
  • Mochan turned towards the boy. "Thats why mothers dont make good vampires." Then he looked at Vincent and Margret, "Arent you neglecting your duty? Being the Sires lap dog and all. Didnt both of you take the vow to destroy all new creations?" He snarled at them, "Youve killed enough of mine already. Im always making new to replace those you and others have killed. You do know how long each one takes, right? If it wasnt for you two, the Sires would be dead, and vampires would be gods again," he spat.
  • The soldier seized the light and advanced quickly towards the opening. Another minute and all must have been revealed. A feeling of despair took possession of Ravonino's breast and he gave vent to an involuntary sigh.
  • "Okay, the formalities are over, you can start talking now. I'm ready," she says taking a generous sip of the wine and then swings the glass back towards David for a topping-off.
  • Had the little creature been one of the unfortunate Indian curs, the two hunters would probably have turned from the sickening sight with disgust, feeling that, however much they might dislike such cruelty, it would be of no use attempting to interfere with Indian usages. But the instant the idea that it was Crusoe occurred to Varley he uttered a yell of anger, and sprang towards the woman with a bound that caused the three Indians to leap to their feet and grasp their tomahawks.
  • Dorian Gray glanced at the picture, and suddenly an uncontrollable feeling of hatred for Basil Hallward came over him, as though it had been suggested to him by the image on the canvas, whispered into his ear by those grinning lips. The mad passions of a hunted animal stirred within him, and he loathed the man who was seated at the table, more than in his whole life he had ever loathed anything. He glanced wildly around. Something glimmered on the top of the painted chest that faced him. His eye fell on it. He knew what it was. It was a knife that he had brought up, some days before, to cut a piece of cord, and had forgotten to take away with him. He moved slowly towards it, passing Hallward as he did so. As soon as he got behind him, he seized it and turned round. Hallward stirred in his chair as if he was going to rise. He rushed at him and dug the knife into the great vein that is behind the ear, crushing the man's head down on the table and stabbing again and again.
  • "Well, this has turned into a most interesting trip, hasnt it? Finding you here, Alice and being presented with a most wonderful offer. What a joy!" Aro looked towards Marcus, whose body was still in pieces on the ground. "I will need to seek my brothers counsel on this matter. Please wait one moment, dear Alice."
  • Jeralyle simply shrugged it off. "He's probably inside collecting materials. I'll get him." The Mage had moved from his horse and headed towards the forest, but a high-pitched scream ripped from inside, forcing everyone on guard and Jeralyle to turn towards its source.
  • Meanwhile the bo'sun signalled to the Jamaica ships to send a boat, and the men in the waist broke their ranks and went noisily flocking to line the bulwarks and view the great stately vessels that were racing down towards them.
  • Keeping under cover, he edged towards it, and at length, he got into a position from which he could see inside. And what he saw made him decide to chance it, and go even closer.
  • Naturally my first thought was of the Spaniards; but the natives, though flocking towards the entrance to the valley, did not appear alarmed. Several of them carried torches, and a strange picture was revealed by the lurid flames.
  • "What about James Anthony?" she asked. She indicated a heap at the bottom of the cliffs. She shoved me towards the cave. "You get some sleep. Robin and I will deal with him."
  • Solomon grinned, and applied himself with renewed diligence to his viands when the preacher had passed. He was now surrounded by a motley party, who had crossed from the main land, all bearing towards the same point. Puritans, whose cloaks were of the most formal cut, and whose hats emulated the steeple of St.
  • As I turned my head I saw them scampering along towards the north-west. The fire having approached with far greater rapidity than I could have supposed possible, I began to fear that they were right and we were wrong, when I saw the flames catching the dry grass and flaring up furiously, with dense masses of black smoke above them, and already scarcely a mile behind us; indeed, they looked very much nearer. Onward came the conflagration, faster than any horse could gallop. Happily we had the start of it, but we must, we knew, keep our steeds at the utmost stretch of their powers to maintain a safe distance.
  • Seeing as most of the mooks were now disposed of Jim did a few victory laps around the remains of the mooks and made an obscene gesture at Adam and Reizvolle. He then picked up a mook and tossed it at Adams head, managing to wrap the evil mans head with it. Reizvolle shook her head at the idiocy and watched as Jim ran at full speed towards the box.
  • He wondered briefly about the ominous space craft that had so rudely broken into the beauty and magic of that ancient reality, recalling the fear that had passed across the Magurs wizened face as it loomed towards them.
  • The Crisis went to sea with a lively breeze at south-west, the wind shifting after she had got into the lower bay. There were a dozen sail of us altogether, and in our little fleet were two of Uncle Sam's men, who felt disposed to try their hands with us. We crossed the bar, all three of us, within a cable's length of each other, and made sail in company, with the wind a trifle abaft the beam. Just as Navesink disappeared, our two men-of-war, merchantmen altered, hauled up on bowlines, and jogged off towards the West Indies, being at the time about a league astern of us. This success put us all in high good-humour, and had such an effect on Marble in particular, that he began to give it as his opinion that our only superiority over them would not be found confined to sailing, on an experiment. It is very convenient to think favourably of one's self, and it is certainly comfortable to entertain the same notion as respects one's ship.
  • Duvalier raised his arms and looked upwards towards the bank of screens on the wall above him. Strange words appeared on the screens, some letters looked vaguely familiar, others were completely alien.
  • As he spoke he was edging, little by little, towards the other man, who crouched, snarling by the door. His eyes, grim and determined, never left the other's face; his hands, apparently hanging listless by his sides, were tingling with the joy of what he knew was coming.
  • Colt took an ominous step towards him, which was disturbing in itself, but made even more so by the fact that Nellise didn't try to stop him. All eyes were on Aiden now, and the sense that he'd betrayed them was stronger than ever.
  • I threw flames at the creature to keep it at bay. It had then charged towards me. I began thinking of a possible solution to the problem at hand. The bird, with its beak wide open, was inches away and then by instinct, I turned into dust.
  • Thus began the astonishing adventure undertaken by these brave men, who were driven by a sentiment of humanity towards the most terrible regions of the Antarctic realm.
  • Type I neurons innervate inner hair cells. There is significantly greater convergence of this type of neuron towards the basal end in comparison with the apical end. A radial fiber bundle acts as an intermediary between Type I neurons and inner hair cells. The ratio of innervation that is seen between Type I neurons and inner hair cells is 1:1 which results in high signal transmission fidelity and resolution.
  • "Its okay, Ness," Jacob croaked, finally able to turn his head and look my way. "You heard the doc. No need to panic." Talking was obviously hurting him and his hand fluttered towards his throat.
  • For several hours the ship ran down before the wind, and the same extraordinary vacancy existed on the waters! At length an island was seen, and the news was sent down on deck. towards that island the ship steered, and about two in the afternoon, she came up close under its lee, and backed her topsail. This island was a stranger to all on board! The navigators were confident they must be within a few leagues of the Peak, as well as of the volcano; yet nothing could be seen of either, while here was an unknown island in their places! This strange land was of very small dimensions, rising out of the sea about three hundred feet. Its extent was no great matter, half a mile in diameter perhaps, and its form nearly circular. A boat was lowered, and a party pulled towards it.
  • At last Kiopo grew tired of battling against that vast wetness, with its loneliness, and voices that rang against his head; and so he turned and swam straight towards the shore.
  • They embraced again for a long moment, not needing to say anything else, until Elodie finally withdrew from his arms, and led him back through the crowd towards the travellers encampment.
  • The bright beams of the great red sun rising above the horizon as they fell on his eyes awoke him, and on looking round he caught sight of the fin of the shark gliding by a few feet off. The monster's eye was turned up towards him with a wicked leer, and he believed that in another instant the savage creature would have made a grab at the raft. His pole was brought into requisition, and the rapid blows he gave with it on the water soon made the monster keep at a respectful distance. He would not shout out, for fear of waking Charley.
  • 'Oh, we don't need to worry about these channels,' Permission said, moving directly towards the sugar-cube construction. 'They're only to provide some protection from this-dimensional beings.'
  • Ferdinand Holm had sat down again, and now he nodded towards the moon. "An old chum of yours? Well, why don't we send him a thousand crowns?"
  • Frances looked out towards the pitch. Another ball had been procured in the meantime, and the game was about to recommence. ‘Just leave him,’ she sighed miserably. ‘With any luck I may get some peace and quiet. I might even get to watch some of the match.’ A surge of emotion began rising up in her. She took a deep breath and returned her attention to the pitch. She stared fixedly at the batsmen.
  • Suddenly, he heard a flutter above him. Isaac glanced up and saw a shadow floating towards the keep. It was the falcon with all of its bad omens. Desperate, Isaac kept his eyes on it, following its flight. He kept watching, breathless, as it floated to one of the windows high up in the keep and
  • As none of them dared to object to any proposal made by the bully, the whole gang of begrimed and evil-minded young savages hurried to the foot of the slope. Here they tumbled into a car, and in a few minutes were drawn up to the surface, where they scattered towards their respective homes and waiting suppers.
  • And still she stood there before him, saying nothing, leaning slightly towards him, her red lips half parted, her eyes fixed almost wistfully on his face.
  • It seemed silly to even entertain the idea. People my age don't really do sympathy very well. We're much more inclined towards ridicule and hasty, usually-unfair, judgments. Still, something had changed. I held onto that hope right up until I saw Mrs. Sorenson joining everyone else in staring at me whenever I looked down at my book. There was no mistaking the look on her face; it was utter distaste, possibly with a dash of disdain.
  • As I was crossing a bye-street, a lady of genteel figure, elegantly dressed, came out of a small house, and got into an hired carriage standing at the door. I stopped short to look at her, and bowed significantly, so as to convey an intimation that my heart was not insensible. On her part, to show me that her face was not less lovely than her person, she lifted up her veil for a moment. In the mean time the coach set off, and I stood stock still in the street, not a little stiffened at this vision. A vastly pretty woman! said I to myself, bless us! this is just what is wanting to make me perfectly accomplished. If the two ladies who share Mogicon between them are equally handsome, the scoundrel is in luck! I should be delighted with her for a mistress. Ruminating on these things, I looked by chance towards the house whence that lovely creature had glided, and saw at a window on the ground floor an old woman beckoning me to come in.
  • At last all was satisfactorily arranged. By the terms of the convention, Sir Sidney Smith was appointed to the command, not only of the Turkish fleet, but of the Turkish army in Syria, a most important point, as the Porte had no confidence whatever in Djezzar, who, like many others of the pashas of the outlying possessions of Turkey, almost openly defied the authority of the sovereign. Djezzar was already at Acre, and some Turkish gun-boats, under Hassan Bey, had also been despatched thither towards the end of February. The welcome order was issued for the Tigre to sail on the 1st of March. Her destination was Alexandria, which, as forming part of the Sultan's possessions, came under the terms of the convention; under the terms of which it had been agreed that two British men-of-war and three frigates should be stationed in Eastern waters to give such aid as was possible to Djezzar, both in active operations, and by capturing store-ships destined for the use of the French army.
  • That evening the mountains of Norway rose to view. About the time that this occurred the sky began to clear towards the north-west and soon after a white line of foam was seen on the horizon right ahead. This was the ocean beating on the great army of islands, or skerries, that line the west coast of Norway from north to south.
  • Not quite, but the next evening the gunboat was well out in deep water, comparatively undamaged, and flying Don Ramon's colours, making her way towards Velova Bay, towing a whole regiment of boats, the Teal proudly leading under easy sail.
  • Hendrik was no less surprised and enraged at the attempt to extort from them; and, seeing the folly of continuing the parley any longer, the youths, without saying a word, walked off towards their horses, intending to mount and ride off.
  • Dusty Star and Kiopo stood in the centre, with the White Wolf a little to one side. Here and there a wolf would sit or lie down, and begin to lick or scratch his coat, but for the most part the animals remained standing, their heads turned towards the group in the centre, as if waiting for some sign.
  • He pointed as he spoke to a large number of horsemen galloping across the country from different directions, towards us. They halted outside the wood, and several of them appeared to be wounded; but they did not allow themselves to exhibit any sign of suffering. Having taken the saddles and bridles from their horses, the greater number led them down towards the water to drink; while six, who, from their more ornamental dresses, appeared to be chiefs, advanced towards us. Their principal man, or head chief, spoke to us; but as we could not understand what he said, we knew that it would be useless to reply. He then pointed to Mike and me, and addressed a few words to his companions. They nodded, and we were led to separate trees, to which we were bound, with our hands secured behind us in a very unpleasant fashion.
  • The atulphi made a move towards the creature, but it flew away before he had even the remotest chance of getting close. "Its bad news," he said, scratching at the shifting skin of his arms. He kept his eyes on the creature until it disappeared, and then - with his gaze still set on the area where he had last seen it - he quickly shrugged off his satchel and rod. "Weve been followed," he said, looking behind, ahead, above. "Keep watching."
  • "This dagger here," Coriath said, pointing towards the curved dagger. "The Ancients told me that it must be used against Arachnia. 'The weapon has an alternate use as well,' Mathius told me. 'A use that only the Chosen One can discover.'
  • All this passed through their minds as they galloped towards those closing points. Oh! the horror of it! But two hundred yards to cover, and their fate would be decided. Either they would have escaped at least for a while, or time would be done with them; or, a third alternative, they might be taken prisoners, in all probability a yet more dreadful doom. Even then Benita determined that if she could help it this should not befall her. She had the rifle and the revolver that Jacob Meyer had given her. Surely she would be able to find a moment to use one or the other upon herself. She clenched her teeth, and struck the horse again and again, so that now they flew along. The Matabele soldiers were running their best to catch them, and if these had been given but five seconds of start, caught they must have been. But that short five seconds saved their lives.
  • "Give way, my lads," cried Barkins, and we rowed on towards the landing-place, followed by a furious yelling; men shaking their fists, and making signs suggestive of how they would like to serve us if they had us there.
  • She almost fell out of the sky with relief as she saw Francescas figure descending through the tops of the buildings back towards the earth again. Omari actually folded her wings tight against her body and let gravity take her most of the way back to the earth. Just as she was about to hit the ground she opened her wings parachute style to slow her fall, but she miscalculated slightly, and lost a bit of control of her descent. She plowed into a thicket surprised Japanese people who screamed and yelled in Japanese as they were buffeted unwittingly by her wings. Fortunately she didnt land directly on top of anyone, and no one was injured. She was definitely off her game.
  • As we neared the shore, we observed a large concourse of people assembled near the wigwams. Many by their costume appeared to be strangers, while others were Kepenau's own people. I saw that Ashatea was regarding them with great interest. In front, on a rock, sat Kepenau; and I judged by his attitude and the tone of his voice that he was addressing them on a matter of importance, while they listened with rapt attention. His right hand pointed to the sky, while his left was directed towards the earth; and by the words which reached me I knew that he was preaching the gospel--setting before the people the way of eternal life.
  • And then she saw it. Opening up before them was a fork in the tunnel. She silently turned to Patreli, pointing towards the tunnel that she instinctively knew held no adversaries. He nodded at her and they angled towards it.
  • Another moment and Grabantak, bursting through the crowd, leaped towards the crouching girl and raised her face. Recognising her he uttered a yell which probably was meant for a cheer.
  • With a screeching of tortured machinery, the train halted in a cutting deep in the forest. Passengers glared angrily at Eric. The ticket inspector strode down the gangway towards them, his face set with anger.
  • Not my own wish, mother, but reason--necessity. Are we not two despairing creatures? What is life to you?--Nothing. What is life to me?--Very little without you, mother; for believe me, but for you I should have ceased to live on the day I doubted my father and renounced his name. Well, I will live, if you promise me still to hope; and if you grant me the care of your future prospects, you will redouble my strength. Then I will go to the governor of Algeria; he has a royal heart, and is essentially a soldier; I will tell him my gloomy story. I will beg him to turn his eyes now and then towards me, and if he keep his word and interest himself for me, in six months I shall be an officer, or dead. If I am an officer, your fortune is certain, for I shall have money enough for both, and, moreover, a name we shall both be proud of, since it will be our own. If I am killed--well then mother, you can also die, and there will be an end of our misfortunes.
  • Presently he ventured to look about him. No one else, apparently, had seen the signal. The convicts were engrossed in their bread and tea, the overseers were sitting by the fire with their backs towards the hill, and the soldiers off duty for the time were chatting loudly among themselves.
  • Here, and all at once, he turned to stare away across Deliverance, then shrinking, cowered towards me as in sudden terror stabbing at the empty air with his glittering hook:
  • He consulted the address he held in his hand, and walked towards it. His dinnerless wanderings of last week had taught him something of the intricacies of the City, if not much, and he chanced to know his way. The place he sought was high up at the top of a ramshackle old house in a narrow court, and a score of dispirited-looking men and youths were at work there. A tired dyspeptic, with a dusty patch of hair and rabbit teeth, approached him when he entered.
  • The chief looked pleased at the gift, placed his hands on Will's shoulder and nodded, and performed the same gesture to Hans. Then he led them towards his hut, and motioned to them to sit down at the foot of the tree.
  • The canoes, therefore, travel at night and in calm weather many miles away from the shore, and thus escape, or slip by daylight among the reedy shallows, sheltered by the flags and willows from view. The ships of commerce haul up to the shore towards evening, and the crews, disembarking, light their fires and cook their food. There are, however, one or two gaps, as it were, in their usual course which they cannot pass in this leisurely manner; where the shore is exposed and rocky, or too shallow, and where they must reluctantly put forth, and sail from one horn of the land to the other.
  • "Very good, then," the man said as he signed the papers and stamped them each with a heavy blow. "Keep these passports with you at all times and show them when you are asked to." He handed the small booklets back to Annie. "This is your landing card. Welcome to America." He smiled and pointed towards some stairs, different stairs from the ones she had climbed earlier.
  • She answered the invitation by bounding towards our hero and clasping him round the neck, causing him to sit down rather abruptly on a rock which lay conveniently behind.
  • "I suspect we'll both need it," Aiden agreed. "Good luck, and keep him away from any sharp objects." Pacian barked out a cynical laugh, and then headed off along a side street towards his family home, while Aiden did the same.
  • Her skin still tingling with anxiety, she tiptoed against the wall, which demarcated the boundaries of the inn and towards the street, and followed the dim light from the windows. There were still a few hours before dawn. She could see only the faintest outline of the bricks and streets, but it was enough to jar her into familiar recognition.
  • Slowly, Shylock extracted details from her of all her personal preferences - hair, eyes, skin-colour, height and much more. All the time drawing her back towards him as he formed her wishes in his mind, realising as he did so that she was becoming even more beautiful than he had originally imagined. It was as if he were merging her preferences with his own desires, creating a true work of art. Finished, he stepped back and smiled.
  • As he spoke, the racing riders topped a far-off knoll; halted, and turned round as if to gaze back towards the north--the direction from which they had come. Then, wheeling round as if in greater haste than ever, they continued their headlong gallop and disappeared on the other side of the knoll.
  • Well, the end of it was that after a good deal of hesitation, the Holy Mother obliged, saying that as the god was dead she supposed nothing else mattered. First, however, she went to the back of the house and clapped her hands, whereon an old woman, a mute and a very perfect specimen of an albino native, appeared and stared at us wonderingly. To her Mrs. Eversley talked upon her fingers, so rapidly that I could scarcely follow her movements. The woman bowed till her forehead nearly touched the ground, then rose and ran towards the water.
  • It was with mixed feelings that Rupert turned on his camel to take a last view of the camp at Korti. When should he see his countrymen again? Should he ever see them? His journey was sure to be a long one, and there would be the constant danger of discovery. He had to trust entirely in the fidelity of the three men riding ahead of him. It was true that their love of gain was also enlisted on his side, but it might well be that they would in time conclude it would be as well to be contented with the goods they had already received in part payment and with the two valuable camels, instead of continuing to run the risk of a prolonged journey in his company in order to earn the sum promised upon his arrival in Egypt or at a port on the Red Sea.

The caliph having notice of this, sent for the judge of the police some days before the feast of Bairam, and ordered him, on pain of death, to bring all the ten to him.
  • Then we heard a cry behind us, and looked, and saw Jessamine and Breen, but no others with them, running through the village towards us. They came up to us, and said they had been in the woods hunting for the villagers who had run away, but found none. We sat down not far from the wounded man. Jessamine had his arm in a sling, and he told what had happened, so far as he made it out.

  • Almost immediately there was a furious splashing, and by the aid of the glass I distinctly saw the dorsal fins of several sharks darting here and there among them, whilst over the glassy surface of the water a shriek or two came faintly towards us.
  • Varley now began by letting the learner smell a piece of meat which he eagerly sought to devour, but was prevented, to his immense disgust. Then the mitten was thrown as heretofore, and Crusoe made a few steps towards it, but being in no mood for play he turned back.
  • With a sharp, shrill scream, one of the women sprang towards him. David instinctively leaped back, and eluded her. The woman chased. David dodged her around a pillar.

  • As one, Macha and I seemed to become aware of the transformation of this noise of one from within to one without as our heads turned, cat-like, towards the door. Another distant crack. She looked down to me, eyebrow raised, cheek scar seeming to quiver briefly, not so much a question between us as a momentary doubt. Her aspect stern, suddenly alert, a fearless panther with a falsely docile exterior, yet she did not protest as I rose to stand beside her.
  • The Ariel took the Professor on board, and hoisted the Russian colours over the flag of truce, and began to sink down towards the fleet.

  • Bertuccio bowed respectfully, and turned away, sighing heavily. Monte Cristo, left alone, took three or four steps onwards, and murmured, "Here, beneath this plane-tree, must have been where the infant's grave was dug. There is the little door opening into the garden. At this corner is the private staircase communicating with the sleeping apartment. There will be no necessity for me to make a note of these particulars, for there, before my eyes, beneath my feet, all around me, I have the plan sketched with all the living reality of truth." After making the tour of the garden a second time, the count re-entered his carriage, while Bertuccio, who perceived the thoughtful expression of his master's features, took his seat beside the driver without uttering a word. The carriage proceeded rapidly towards Paris.
  • He went down into the hall, and a man whose face he remembered came eagerly towards him. Challoner was able to identify him the next moment. For the man cried out:
  • At that moment the sun broke through the clouds and he felt its late Spring warmth focussed on the top of his head as if through a lens. He lay back against the wall with his eyes closed, his face tilted up towards the heavens, bathing in the life-enhancing warmth. In a matter of moments the heat was so fierce he imagined the suns rays might even set his hair on fire. Rivulets of sweat began to trickle down his temple. It was hard to breathe in the airless heat. He felt like he was already in hell.
  • 'An invalid in the house?' he remarked. 'How inconvenient for you!' He laid his hand for a moment on the soldier's arm. 'I sadly fear you're going to make a fool of yourself. And it will be such a pity.' He turned towards the stairs. 'Don't bother, please; I can find my own way out.'
  • The ghost walks towards Anna. She looks up when we come closer and I wait for her to recognise me. I'm worried that when she does it will freak the ghost out, send him into one of his rages.
