  • Perhaps this is what he wants, said Paul, throwing a bit of bread towards the rat. Approaching it cautiously, the beast first smelled of it, and then seizing it in his mouth again darted beneath the door. Several times did he thus come for food, but he always carried it away without stopping to eat even a crumb.
  • As he drew nearer, Pete could see that Bluebeard was grinning from ear to ear with his pistol drawn and pointed towards the Boys head. He was kicking the traitors shins as he walked and openly mocking him with a constant stream of tyrannical laughter assaulting his ears. The Boy looked pained, but more than that: abandoned, distressed. His new ninja friends had apparently forsaken him to the whims of his furious captain.
  • "And what if the ice desires to flee the fire? Khan, they said that I should kill you, but I do not seek your blood. You think that I would rob you of your wife, yet I have no such thought towards her. We desire to escape this town of yours, but cannot, because its gates are locked, and we are prisoners, guarded night and day. Hear me, then. You have the power to set us free and to be rid of us."
  • Although her explanation for her calm demeanor was at least partially plausible, that didnt solve their problem. Francesca tightened her grip and pulled the girl towards her face, until she was close enough to whisper directly in her ear. Omari couldnt hear what she said, but whatever it was, it was finally enough to crack the girls stoic façade.
  • Not another soul was out tonight. They were all holed up inside against the bitter cold and wind. Bob intended to join them directly. But as he trudged back along the port, his black mackintosh barely protecting him from the driving sheets of rain, something caught his eye. He paused and strained his neck towards the levy wall, freezing drips of water gushing off his hat and down his exposed neck.
  • "No, but we could beat them in. I know where Lee is working, for I went up last winter with Constantine and his dog-team, over a short cut by way of Black Bear Creek. We took it coming back, and I could find it again, but Lee doesn't know that route, so he will follow the summer trail, which is fifteen miles farther. You see, his creek makes a great bend to the southward, and heads back towards the river, so by crossing the divide at the source of Black Bear you drop into it a few miles above his cabin."
  • The hours passed slowly over, and I at length grew weary of waiting. For some time I had amused myself with observing the slouching gait and unsoldier-like air of the Spaniards as they lounged carelessly about, looking in dress, gesture, and appointment, far move like a guerilla than a regular force. Then again, the strange contrast of the miserable hut with falling chimney and ruined walls, to the glitter of the mounted guard of honor who sat motionless beside it, served to pass the time; but as the night was already far advanced, I turned towards my quarters, hoping that the next morning might gratify my curiosity about my friends.
  • I said that I would go next,"" exclaimed the young stranger, fastening the rope round his waist, and, before I could stop him, he plunged into the water. He buffeted the waves bravely, but his strength was not equal to the undertaking. I trusted that, notwithstanding his light figure and delicate appearance, he would succeed. Every moment was precious, for one after the other the people were being carried away before our eyes, without our having the means of saving them. He had already got a footing on the reef. Just as some of the men were making their way towards him, and he had nearly got up to the boat, a sea lifted him off his feet, and he and those who were near him were swept away. My men and I hauled in the rope, but, unable to guide himself, he was dashed with violence against the rocks, and when we drew him on shore, he was almost insensible."
  • Once more the Balsam came about and began to retrace its short course towards the starting line. The Spruce was just off its starboard side, with bow pointing directly into the wind and consequently was almost stationary.
  • "Yeah, just give me a minute here," the big man answered. Armin nodded, and headed towards the door, turning to say one last thing before he left.
  • It was getting on towards midday now; the sun was high and quite warm. Louie and Lulu moved the deck furniture into the shade of a fern frond.
  • Beyond the iron gate were seven brick archways. As I stepped towards the iron gate a strange noise stole my attention. The faint noise grew slowly. What is that? It came from the spiraling hallway. Something is coming down. I backed against the wall of the hallway. It was close now, only one or two circles left before the bottom. I didn't know what to expect.
  • There was something very grim and suggestive about the captain's behaviour to the two boys later on towards evening, when he came and stood glaring down at them, where they sat in the sand. He had said a few words to one of the men, who went up into the back of the cavern while the other waited; and Vince noted that there was a splashing sound round the corner of the buttress which supported one side of the great arch, so that he was not surprised directly after to see the prow of a boat appear, to be run in and beached upon the sand.
  • When the woman perceived who had been entrusted with the carrying of her child, she pronounced two or three phrases in a sharp, angry tone. Understanding them, the child dismounted from the sailor's back and ran with all speed towards her.
  • At once the signal was given to Ellis, the dam watcher. Ellis and his assistants thereupon began to pry with long iron bars at the ratchets of the heavy gates. The chore-boy bent attentively over the ratchet-pin, lifting it delicately to permit another inch of raise, dropping it accurately to enable the men at the bars to seize a fresh purchase. The river's roar deepened. Through the wide sluice-ways a torrent foamed and tumbled. Immediately it spread through the brush on either side to the limits of the freshet banks, and then gathered for its leap against the uneasy rollways. Along the edge of the dark channel the face of the logs seemed to crumble away. Farther in towards the banks where the weight of timber still outbalanced the weight of the flood, the tiers grumbled and stirred, restless with the stream's calling. Far down the river, where Bryan Moloney and his crew were picking at the jam, the water in eager streamlets sought the interstices between the logs, gurgling excitedly like a mountain brook.
  • "Hey," she heard someone shout, and she looked towards the front where the voice had come from. A middle-aged man who sat at the controls was looking at her. "Are you riding alone?" he yelled. The loud and excited voices around her turned into whispers.
  • Sindo was to be shot with his own musket. The executioner had been already appointed, and all other arrangements made for carrying out the decree, when Willem, advancing towards Macora, commenced interceding for his life.
  • "Puny goblin! If you think you will defeat me with a piece of wood..." CLANG! Blahterk didn't ponder the matter. Instead he decided to test it in practice. With complete disregard to his own safety, he ran towards the human and hit him on the head with the pole as hard as he could. Surprised Arthaxiom didn't raise his shield in time. His helmet protected him, but the force of the strike made him stagger. He made a step back and prepared to block the next strike. "You are out of luck, little worm! My sturdy shield... AAARGH!" This time the paladin was ready to protect his head, but Blahterk struck low. Arthaxiom's leg failed him and he fell on one knee.
  • For the first time since crowding around Ryson and Holli, the algors turned their attention towards themselves. Heads bobbed about. Calls were shouted to and fro. The rumble of disconcerted voices turned into a roar. Every algor spoke at once, every algor shouted something different. None listened to what the next said.
  • Crusoe made one bound that a lion might have been proud of, and seizing the aggressor by the back, lifted him off his legs and held him, howling, in the air--at the same time casting a look towards his master for further instructions.
  • A normal person, one who was really as self-confident as I pretended to be, would have just turned and headed towards the eastern set of doors. Not wanting to look like a ditzy blond who couldn't even remember that someone had run a SUV into the flagpole and temporarily rendered one of the four main exits inoperable, I kept walking.
  • The sentry was alone again, the other three men having departed. He stood with his back towards them. Presently when they were quite close on to him, he heard their horses' hoofs upon the grass, wheeled round at the sound, and saw them. Then with a great shout he lifted his spear and charged.
  • The tension increased as they lay there for what must have been ten minutes, but felt much longer. Aiden's heart sped up as he spotted first one, then two hooded men moving silently amongst the trees. He tapped Colt on his leg next to him to get his attention, nodding towards the prospective targets.
  • A burst of laughter followed Samson's act of politeness, for he had stuck on the steel jockey-like cap with its peak towards the back, and the curve, which was meant to protect the back of the head, well down over his eyes.
  • The youth turned to his fellows, and pointed directly at Hal. They swaggered across the field towards them, brushing past anyone who failed to move out of the way.
  • The sun was on the verge of the horizon, and the time was approaching when the Antarctic region would be shrouded in polar night. Fortunately, in re-ascending towards the north we were getting into waters from whence light was not yet banished. Then did we witness a phenomenon as extraordinary as any of those described by Arthur Pym. For three or four hours, sparks, accompanied by a sharp noise, shot out of our fingers' ends, our hair, and our beards. There was an electric snowstorm, with great flakes falling loosely, and the contact produced this strange luminosity. The sea rose so suddenly and tumbled about so wildly that the Paracuta was several times in danger of being swallowed up by the waves, but we got through the mystic-seeming tempest all safe and sound.
  • Everyone remained quiet, simply watching. Several moments passed until another gust of wind came from the other directionfrom Sharia. Lornya turned her head towards it and closed her eyes. "Sharia is finefor now," she said, the wind still gusting. "Valaira left with Nwour to search for us and headed south. The others are leading Idimus back to Kaldus to tend to him." Lornya's eyes blinked open and they settled upon Lanyan, "Sharia is safe though I know not for how long."
  • "Now theres a piece of subtlety," Tudur said. With my pregnancy, hed softened towards me somewhat, but didnt trust me.
  • Just as the sun was setting, several huts were descried to the south; and our travellers continued towards them, quite confident that a full supply of water would be found near the huts, which, as they drew towards them, proved to be a kraal of the Bechuanas. The fear of losing their cattle was no longer felt.
  • It's all d----n nonsense, he said, "for th' Padre t' talk about his duty towards a set o' critters like th' Priest Captain's crowd. What's th' life o' that whole outfit worth compared t' one life like his? He might just as well sit down an' chop his own head off as go in among those fellows; an' he knows it, too. I never heard o' th' man he's talkin' about who didn't get eat up by th' lions--somebody in th' show business, I s'pose--but if he thinks there'll he anything worth speakin' of left of him two hours after he gets back into that city, he's makin' a pretty d--n big mistake. Oh, I say, Professor, we've got t' stop this. Th' Padre's off his head, that's all there is to it; an' we've got t' look after him till he braces up an' gets sensible again. I'll do anything reasonable that he wants, but I'll be d----d if I'm goin' t' stand by doin' nothin' while he cuts his own throat!"
  • He waited patiently while Morgondeval crept up, locking his eyes on the armor. And even though he was not wearing it, it could still be of use to him. "Youshould not have admitted such!" It all happened so quickly and in unison, Grahamas was barely ready for it. The catalyst was Morgondeval leaping from the darkened corner, both his sharp, serrated claws jutting out towards and aimed at the Champion. Mid-descent El's blast blew dirt and debris into the room and for one second, what would be his final, Morgondeval got distracted. Graham reached down to wrap his fingers around Hope's plate and yanked his arm forward. The Champion raised the armor off the ground and flung it directly at the leaping monster.
  • Richard rose, gathering up his letters and stared across at this man who had been Jack's greatest friend. He took a step towards him. As he did so, O'Hara turned and caught sight of him. Richard was about to hail him, when he suddenly noticed the change in his expression. The good humour died out of the Irishman's eyes and left them hard and scornful. His pleasant mouth curved into a disdainful line. Carstares stood still, one hand on the back of a chair, his eyes rivetted to O'Hara's face, reading all the reproach, the red-hot anger that Miles was trying to convey to him. O'Hara achieved a sneer and turned his shoulder, continuing to address his friends.
  • At one end of it we piled up the firewood. Extending from that towards the other end, we spread a carpet of pine-branches, full six inches thick. To do all this took a considerable amount of time and labour, and when Lumley stood up at last to strike a light with flint, steel, and tinder, we felt pretty well exhausted. The night had by that time become profoundly dark, insomuch that we had to grope for the various articles we required.
  • The clamour grew louder and louder till it seemed to fill the skies with a concentrated noise of curses and shrieking. Distinct from it, as it were, I heard shouts of alarm and rage, and then came the sounds of gunshots, yells of agony and the thud of many running feet. By now the light was growing fast, as it does when once it comes in these latitudes. Three more minutes, and through the grey mist of the dawn we saw dozens of black figures struggling up the slope towards us. Some seemed to have logs of wood tied behind them, others crawled along on all fours, others dragged children by the hand, and all yelled at the top of their voices.
  • And repeating again, "He takes his household with him," the old man shuffled back from the room and hesitatingly closed the door. Before the sound of his slow footsteps had failed to reach the room Morano was asleep under his cross. Rodriguez still watched for a while the shadows leaping and shuddering away from the candle, riding over the ceiling, striding hugely along the walls, towards him and from him, as draughts swayed the ruddy flame; then, gripping his sword still firmer in his hand, as though that could avail against magic, he fell into the sleep of tired men.
  • I do not think that Saduko spoke of her to me again until towards the climax of this history, and certainly I did not mention her to him. But from that day forward I noted that he was a changed man. His pride and open pleasure in his great success, which had caused the Zulus to name him the "Self-eater," were no longer marked. He became cold and silent, like a man who is thinking deeply, but who shutters his thoughts lest some should read them through the windows of his eyes. Moreover, he paid a visit to Zikali the Little and Wise, as I found out by accident; but what advice that cunning old dwarf gave to him I did not find out--then.
  • I thought at first, as I was speaking, of the beautiful scenery, but in the latter part of my speech I was looking towards Lilla, and for a moment our eyes met.
  • Harmachis, she said, "the name has a high sound--and thou hast a high look;" and then, speaking to a soldier who had seen all, she bade him tell her what had come to pass. This he did truthfully, being friendly disposed towards me because I had overcome the Nubian. Thereon she turned and spoke to the girl bearing the fan who stood beside her--a woman with curling hair and shy dark eyes, very beautiful to see. The girl answered somewhat. Then Cleopatra bade them bring the slave to her. So they led forward the giant, who had found his breath again, and with him the woman whom he had smitten down.
  • The troops at once returned to their duty, and declared their readiness to follow him, wheresoever he would. Without further delay, Cortez, taking with him a number of natives to act as carriers, set out on his march towards Mexico.
  • Phil hurried off with his companions in mischief towards an old and somewhat dilapidated boat house. The lad who had been addressed as Tommy slipped up to the door, and a few moments later all three entered and closed it behind them.
  • Having arranged this they mounted and hastened towards the hillocks in question, which they reached after ten minutes' gallop, at full stretch. The sandy mounds afforded them concealment, and enabled them to watch the proceedings of the savages in the plain below. The scene was the most curious and exciting that can be conceived. The centre of the plain before them was crowded with hundreds of buffaloes, which were dashing about in the most frantic state of alarm. To whatever point they galloped they were met by yelling savages on horseback, who could not have been fewer in numbers than a thousand--all being armed with lance, bow, and quiver, and mounted on active little horses. The Indians had completely surrounded the herd of buffaloes, and were now advancing steadily towards them, gradually narrowing the circle, and, whenever the terrified animals endeavoured to break through the line, they rushed to that particular spot in a body, and scared them back again into the centre.
  • On this day, however, the 26th of March, towards eight o'clock in the morning, an incident of the greatest importance took place.
  • Sara sat with her sister under a blue and yellow striped umbrella as the sun beat down on the black pavement. Leaning forward towards the paper cup that she held between her hands, she drew some of the ice-cold pop from the straw into her mouth. As she swallowed, screams of delight erupted from her right. Looking over she saw the tail end of a rollercoaster disappearing behind a building, the carsrattle echoing. Hearing the laughter of children next to the food stand, Sara watched as they tossed bits of food over the metal railing into the water. She could just see the fish swirling and splashing on the waters surface as each large carp tried to be the first to suck up the kidsofferings.
  • It was with no small amount of anxiety that he was watched, as, with four men in his boat, he approached the beach. No one drew nearer till he had landed: when, taking the treasures he had brought from the boat, he held them up, first towards one canoe, then towards another; and then he placed them on the sand, and returned to his boat. Thus tempted, the savages landed, and quickly made their way towards the articles on the beach. They were soon seized on and examined; and in a brief space of time afterwards the savages seemed as ready to go on board the ship as they before seemed desirous of keeping away from her. Before long, canoes appeared from many other quarters. Captain Langton, observing this, considered a while, and then called Hugh to him.
  • And now the rest of the party beheld a curious thing. Chris' pony had reached the edge of the grass and had stopped so suddenly as to nearly throw its rider over its head. In vain did the little negro apply whip and spur. Not a step further would the animal budge. They saw Chris at last throw the reins over the pony's head and leaping from his saddle plunge into the grass. Only the top of his head was visible but they could trace his progress by that and it was very, very slow. At last he reached the crane and slinging it over his shoulder began to retrace his footsteps. His return was infinitely slow, but at last he regained his pony and dragging himself and his burden into the saddle headed back towards the group of curious watchers. As he drew nearer they stared in silent amazement. He was wet from head to foot, his clothing was in tatters, and the blood flowed freely from a hundred cuts on face, hands and arms.
  • I did not know whether we could succeed in letting down the schooner from this height with the means we had at our disposal. But I did know that Captain Len Guy, the mate and the older members of the crew, when they had recovered from their first fright, would not give up in despair, no matter how terrible the situation might be; of that I had no doubt whatsoever! They would all look to the general safety; as for the measures to be taken, no one yet knew anything. A foggy veil, a sort of greyish mist still hung over the iceberg. Nothing could be seen of its enormous mass except the narrow craggy cleft in which the schooner was wedged, nor even what place it occupied in the middle of the ice-fleet drifting towards the south-east.
  • Dimitri climbed to his feet and saw that a wall of fairies surrounded him. Whatever they were doing to Captain West made him shriek, and his words became garbled and unintelligible. Dimitri gave Captain West a wide berth, but was not sure what to do. He started to walk on uncertain legs towards the Island Pride, then towards the slope leading inland to the island.
  • The Puppetmaster came next, sitting beside her. He nudged Dr. Socks prone body with his cane, pointing towards the opposite bank of seats. As the car rumbled to life and the driver pulled away from the warehouses, Dr. Sock crawled onto the seats and panted.
  • It had been arranged that Glendower should meet the allies at Lichfield; and on his being joined by his uncle, the Earl of Westmoreland, with his following, Hotspur marched south. His intention was, after effecting a junction with Glendower, to march and give battle to the army with which Henry and the Prince of Wales were advancing against him. At Lichfield, however, he learned that Glendower had not completed his preparations in sufficient time to join him. He therefore changed his direction, and made for Shrewsbury, towards which place Glendower was marching.
  • "That your whip, mistress?" he said, turning and wagging his head sidewise towards where, half-a-dozen yards down the steep slope, the whip lay, where Ralph had kicked it on to a clump of brambles.
  • Saxe glanced down as they passed the angles and gradually entered the semi-darkness, and saw that the surface of the water was smoother, and that, as they passed the waves formed by the water being hurled against the opposing faces of the rock, there was less foam and turmoil; but these places looked, if anything, more terrible than before, and the water, as it surged up so much nearer his feet, looked to his excited vision as if stealthily writhing towards him to lap round his legs like some huge serpent, and snatch him down into the depths.
  • It is best to be prepared, if that dark cloud rolling towards us should chance to conceal a foe in its bosom. A dark cloud, as well as a dark eye, sometimes hides dangers, my lord.
  • I slammed my heel down on his left foot, and then brought my knee upwards towards his crotch, only to hit nothing but air as he spun me around.
  • Their faces were set towards the west, where the low sun hung over a ragged range of hills topped with everlasting white. The great valley, dark with an untrodden wilderness of birch and spruce and alder, lay on this side, sombre and changeless, like a great, dark- green mat too large for its resting-place, its edges turned up towards the line of unmelting snow. Beyond were other ranges thrust skyward in a magnificent confusion, while still to the farther side lay the purple valley of the Koyukuk, a valley that called insistently to restless men, welcoming them in the spring, and sending them back in the late summer tired and haggard with the hunger of the North. Each year a tithe remained behind, the toll of the trackless places, but the rest went back again and again, and took new brothers with them.
  • Sick nausea, rising faintly yet heavily on the senses, swimming upward, as it were, along with a half-drowned rebeginning of life and the cognizance of things; deep loathing, and eyes like new-cast musket-balls for heat and weight; a frowsy air; a mouth like burned leather lined with vile odours. Forget it all in a mere instinct of distaste. Sink down with the sick wave. Swim down the sick wave in floating circles. Sway here and swing there at the bottom of the whirlpool, and up again towards the light which heaves slowly on the eye as it used to do at the upward turn after a dive, when the sunlight shone through the yellow water of the lock. Then on a sudden--daylight; and then, like a bursting shell on the brain, the truth.
  • Jim's face grew hard with anger, and he grabbed the porter by the back of the neck in a grip that fairly made that worthy's bones crack, and lifted him towards the door.
  • Without waiting for her reply, Vallombreuse abruptly left the room, and returned in a moment with de Sigognac, whose heart was throbbing as if it would burst out of his breast. The two young men, hand in hand, paused on the threshold, hoping that Isabelle would turn her eyes towards them; but she modestly cast them down and kept them fixed upon the floor, while her thoughts flew far away, to hover about the beloved being who she little dreamed was so near her. Vallombreuse, seeing that she took no notice of them, and had fallen into a reverie, advanced towards her, still holding de Sigognac by the hand, and made a ceremonious bow, as did also his companion; but while the young duke was smiling and gay, de Sigognac was deeply agitated, and very pale.
  • Black looks were turned on the interpreter, and several hands wandered towards boots in search of daggers, when the prime minister interfered.
  • The monster slipped through, and Benjamin, carried by the momentum of his last shove, nearly slipped through with it. But nearly was not enough; the creature, falling backwards, grabbed hold of the boys arms, overbalancing him. Benjamin shrieked; he heard Maddie awaken with a cry. His feet left the floor, his upper body fell forwards; and before he could wonder how he might save himself, he was plummeting, along with his hellish adversary, towards the tenebrous ground below.
  • Tika and Emla were close at his heels as some of the remaining Cansharsi whirled to face them. A Cansharsi towered above Tika snarling, its taloned forefeet extended and ready to disembowel. Farn bellowed and trampled towards Tika as another Cansharsi sprang from the melee. His bellow of rage turned to a howl of agony as talons ripped down his neck.
  • Caislyn stepped up to the wooden floor of the attic into complete darkness. She held up her hand and witch light glowed from her palm. It gave just enough illumination for her to see the small lantern hanging from the ceiling. She turned towards Jaxon, "Can you light it?"
  • Billy always suspected that Champa had a lot of reasons to feel vindictive towards the Mongols, but never asked. Now, however, he could tell that she satiated some of that thirst. Something seemed to fall off her shoulders. She turned to Billy and bowed very low, in a gesture of deep respect.
  • Oooeelie moved past her, bounding with renewed energy, down the hill towards the beach and the waters of Huntington Harbor. He ran onto the beach barking, chasing the seagulls into flight. He waded into the water up to his chest, barking at a huge swan riding the rise and fall of the water about 30 feet from shore.
  • Fikna thought Rordans words over. "Splendid advice." He walked towards and stood beside Codal, pretending to be interested in the teenagers conversation.
  • We made a brief pause at the place where Arthur Pym and Dirk Peters seized upon the boat which bore them towards higher latitudes, even to that horizon of dark vapour whose rents permitted them to discern the huge human figure, the white giant.
  • "For a moment, yes. Then something happened, something even I can't explain. I felt a shift and a breeze, inside a four-walled room with no windows. A warm light drawing at the center, so bright and inviting that even I had to close my eyes and turn towards it. When I opened them againthey fell on you once more, now a smiling baby girl with brilliant blue eyes. I nearly broke down, I couldn't believe you were aliveit had worked. As such, I kept my promise to your parents. I burned the spell to make sure that it would never fall into the wrong hands and I took you with me, at least for a time." She turned, waiting for a reaction from Elryia.
  • 'Right.' Gladys cut through the conversation as she felt several more Sand Jackals enter their level. She pelted towards them, sword held tight in both hands.
  • Bitterly he reproached himself for his folly in leaving the camp, knowing that gipsies were about, with no other weapon than the bow. The knife at his belt was practically no weapon at all, useful only in the last extremity. Had he a short sword, or javelin, he would have faced the two gipsies who first sprang towards him. Worse than this was the folly of wandering without the least precaution into a territory at that time full of gipsies, who had every reason to desire his capture. If he had used the ordinary precautions of woodcraft, he would have noticed their traces, and he would not have exposed himself in full view on the ridges of the hills, where a man was visible for miles. If he perished through his carelessness, how bitter it would be! To lose Aurora by the merest folly would, indeed, be humiliating.
  • The noise of their mistressdistress seemed the breaking point for the birds: screeching, they began to rise, making a tangle of the threads as they pulled the rocking, shuddering cage upwards. Benjamin, distraught at the idea of leaving Lilac without her only means of escape, instantly ran for the cage, in the hope that he might catch hold of it before it was beyond reach. Admittedly, if the birds were strong enough to carry both her and the cage, then theyd find little trial in spiriting Benjamin clean from the ground also; but then again, his extra weight could be just what was needed to slow them down, and so give Lilac some time to catch up. With only another stride to go before the rapidly rising cage was within his grasp, Benjamin looked behind, back towards the woods.
  • I had been carried down some distance, when, on more perfectly recovering my senses, I discovered that I was happily near the side opposite to that on which I had seen the Indians. I scrambled up on the bank, therefore, hoping to find some place of concealment before they could discover me. I had not gone far, however, before I recollected that my footprints would certainly betray me. I therefore retraced my steps and threw myself backwards into the water; and as I looked up towards the bank, I clearly perceived the marks I had left.
  • I was struck by the fixity of his gaze upon the object, whose nature he had so promptly declared: he continued to contemplate it for several minutes, and I guessed what was passing in the mind of the man under the obsession of a fixed idea. This fragment of ice, torn from the southern icebergs, came from those waters wherein his thoughts continually ranged. He wanted to see it more near, perhaps at close quarters, it might be to take away some bits of it. At an order from West the schooner was directed towards the floating mass; presently we were within two cables-length, and I could examine it.
  • His sons overtook the Baron as he walked towards home, and walked by his side in silence. Sir Constans was full of his fruit.
  • I walked towards the door. Dolly stood by the table fingering the album. I had almost reached the door; then I happened to look round.
  • He thought to himself that in the dark and breakers such an event was not probable, but he said nothing, and addressed himself to the task of getting rid of his coat and waistcoat--no easy one in that confined space. Meanwhile the canoe was whirling round and round like a walnut shell upon a flooded gutter. For some distance before the waves broke upon the reef and rocks they swept in towards them with a steady foamless swell. On reaching the shallows, however, they pushed their white shoulders high into the air, curved up and fell in thunder on the reef.
  • At his cry, Mordis dropped the saddle she had been carrying, and looked up. Racing towards her, across the chaos of the chamber, was her prince, her love.
  • The admiral was desirous of bringing about a reconciliation with Porras and the rebels, who, since their separation, had incessantly ravaged the island, and been guilty of odious cruelties towards the unfortunate natives. Columbus proposed to restore them to favour, but these foolish people only answered his generous overtures by advancing to attack him in his retreat. Those Spaniards who had remained faithful to the cause of order, were obliged to take up arms, and they valiantly defended the admiral, losing but one man in this sad affair. They took both the brothers Porras prisoners, and remained masters of the field of battle: then the rebels threw themselves on their knees before Columbus, who, in compassion for their sufferings, granted them pardon.
  • In the meantime, John turned the car round and drove back to the bend. The road was narrow, but there was room for two vehicles to pass, provided that both kept well to the proper side. John, however, took the middle and did not swerve much when a dazzling beam swept round the curve. He blew his horn; there was an answering shriek from an electric hooter, and then a savage shout. John, who was near the left side now, but not so close as he ought to have been, freed the clutch and used the brake, and the other car, missing him by an inch or two, plunged into the wet grass across the road.

The driver and a very angry man in a soft hat were getting out.
  • She had not heard the story of the respectable old gentleman. That was clear. They were riding through an open oblong space of ground dotted with trees. There were shops down the middle, two rows backing upon a stream, and shops again at the sides.

But fixed though her gaze was, there was no longer any fear in her eyes. Rather they expressed a keen interest, a strong curiosity.

  • They soon espied me, and several detached themselves from the main body and galloped forward. Should they come near me, my fate, I felt sure, would be sealed. I had not a moment to deliberate. I would rather rush through the flames than trust myself to their tender mercies; so, turning my horse's head, I galloped back towards the advancing fire. Directly in front of me was a spot where the flames reached to a much less height than in other places, and the belt of fire seemed also much narrower. Unstrapping the blanket I carried on my saddle, with desperate energy I tore off a broad strip and fastened it over my horse's eyes. The larger portion I threw over my own head, fastening the ends round my body.
  • It was wonderful to see Emmett of course, but it was overwhelming to see my Aunt Rosalie again after all this time. Her flawless beauty was almost overwhelming to look at.

  • As they drew closer to the city center, they began to see the evidence of the last days of the Scorch's infection of Stoneport. Corpses, blackened from the inside-out, lay twisted here and there on the streets, sometimes gathered into piles, other times just lying where they'd dropped. The salt air had partly mummified some of their remains, and their charred, parchment-like faces stared up at the bard in tightened grins. Shuddering, the bard had pressed on towards the Great Temple.
  • Only lay through the Straits of Le Maire, on the 10th November, or what is the same thing in this quarter of the world, of May, and with less than nine hours of day-light! And such day-light, too! Why, our Newfoundland fogs, such stuff as I used to eat when a youngster and a fisherman, are high noon to it! Soundings are out of the question hereabouts; and, before one has hauled in the deep-sea, with all its line out, his cut-water may be on a rock. This ship is so weatherly and drags ahead so fast, that we shall see terra firma before any one has a notion of it. The old man fancies, because the coast of Fuego trends to the north-west, that the land will fall away from us, as fast as we draw towards it. I hope he may live long enough to persuade all hands that he is right!
  • David left the hotel, and, after walking a few paces, turned his steps towards the sea-shore. Here the attractions were greater than on the land, for the blue expanse of water spread itself out before him, encircled by shores and islands, and all the congregated glories of the Bay of Naples were there in one view before his eyes. There was a beach here of fine pebbles, which sloped gently into the water, and upon this beach a number of boats were drawn up. After wandering along the beach for a little distance, David entered one of these boats, and sat down. It was a small boat, with: a mast and sail, the latter of which was loosely furled. Here David sat and looked out upon the water.
  • We were no sooner clear of the proas than the order was given, "ready about!" The helm was put down, and the ship came into the wind in a minute. As we came square with the two proas, all our larboard guns were given to them, and this ended the affair. I think the nearest of the rascals got it this time, for away she went, after her consort, both running off towards the islands. We made a little show of chasing, but it was only a feint; for we were too glad to get away from them, to be in earnest. In ten minutes after we tacked the last time, we ceased firing, having thrown some eight or ten round-shot after the proas, and were close-hauled again, heading to the south-west.
  • Calista glanced towards the window and was startled to see Philyra peeking out. Calista sucked in a breath at the brightly burning hatred emanating from the girls face. Once Philyra saw she had been spotted, she quickly ducked.
  • And at that very moment the group was swarmed by a sudden white-and-gray flock of seagulls, perhaps two dozen in all. The girls and Maggie ducked at first, terrified, but then watched in amazement as the birds landed around them, a disorienting flash of feathers and wings that quickly formed two tight semicircles about them, standing precisely and silently forward, standing as though at proud military attention. The seagull Mr. Conor had addressed as "Commander" had retaken its post on the railing directly in front of him, at the Piers very tip; the bird faced away this time, looking towards the ocean. The sea was now splashed by a blinding, glittering road of yellow light that led from the end of the Pier to the brilliant home star settling over the indistinct western horizon. Yaeko Mitsaki removed her Stradivarius and brought it to her chin, bow at the ready.

  • Refreshed the next morning, they were better fitted to calmly reflect on their condition than the night before; still they were unable to form any decided course to pursue further than to remain through that day near their present encampment.

Frightened, they turned to ascend the mountain, when the Indians came running towards them making unmistaken signs of friendship.
  • Grahamas moved to follow him but a soft, calm voice stopped him, "Thatthat was my husband wasn't it?" Graham could only nod, turning his back towards her and sheathing his sword. "It's oddbut makes sense now. This is not the first time I've seen him, but never this close. So much about him is different, but not his eyes." She looked confused, then utterly heartbroken. "What happened to him?"
  • She walked towards him and held out her wrinkled hands. He took them in his own without hesitation. She studied his face carefully. ‘Skull Island?’
  • And as the waters rose up the shingle towards their feet Ganel cried, ‘Your mother tore the burning stone from my neck and tried to quench my shame by swallowing it, and Ive heard whispers that her middle body was burned away. Why should she do such a thing for me? Everything Id promised her was spoilt, and though I only longed to see her smile again I brought her nothing but misery and dreadful death. Her spirit will not smile on me for bringing the same to you.’ Nicovar didnt know how to comfort him, for it was a bad and wasteful death that surged towards them.
