Allen was good looking, popular and exciting.
Allen couldn't be rejected, so he belittled her intelligence, the close relationship with her family and accused her of cheating on him.
Allen had been drinking at the party a little more than usual.
The minute Howard had arrived; Allen was in his face, accusing him of stealing his girl.
Howard had to pull out of the driveway slowly and gradually increase his speed.
Allen was no good.
All Len wants out of me is information about Allen, and Howard couldn't care less where I am.
It was like Allen to think only of himself.
She would have bet her eyeteeth that Connie wouldn't tell Allen where she was.
Allen swaggered over to the pool, a conceited smile on his handsome face.
Allen gave her a sour look.
She swung around to find Giddon watching Allen, his expression dark and brooding.
Allen swallowed audibly, but Giddon shifted his focus to Lisa.
Eyes of blue ice turned on Allen and Giddon's voice was almost a growl.
Allen swallowed again, almost cringing as he licked his lips and turned desperate eyes on Lisa.
He gave Allen a last threatening look and stalked off to the house.
Allen watched him enter the house before he turned to Lisa.
Lisa stared at Allen in disbelief.
"Like dating Allen," he said sternly.
Dating Allen hadn't been a good idea.
Oh yes, he had overheard her conversation with Allen earlier and made his own deductions.
Had Allen been here to make a drug deal with Giddon?
It was difficult to believe that Connie would tell Allen, knowing his weakness for alcohol, but how else would he have known?
Did Connie tell Allen where to find me?
If Connie didn't tell Allen where to find her, who did?
I can't imagine why you chose Allen instead.
No, I didn't tell Allen where you were.
I can't imagine how Allen knew.
Allen didn't do drugs either – as far as she knew.
Maybe it was because Allen was younger, or because Yancey had a child.
Something deep inside said that if Allen were six years older and had a child, he'd still be as irresponsible as he was now.
They might have considered her an innocent bystander in her relationship with Allen, but being on the sideline again would, at minimum, make them suspicious.
She had done it with Allen and she had done it with her family.
Other than the brief conversation about seeing him with Allen, they had not discussed him.
Allen was the past and Yancey the future.
Allen stared at her for a minute, as though confused.
Allen let go of her and jumped off.
Allen walked toward the door, his attention divided between Howard and Lisa.
If he hadn't come along, she'd probably be dead, and yet, he had done nothing to assist after Allen left.
She lifted her head to ask him why Allen was asking questions about Yancey.
You must have known what Allen would do to me if he caught me alone.
Allen was no surprise.
Yet Howard said he hired Allen because she asked him to investigate Yancey.
Allen had come to the house before she asked Howard to check on Yancey.
How did you know Allen was looking for me?
Allen came here to ask me questions about you.
Allen nearly strangled her to death.
If Howard hadn't come along when he did, Allen might have killed you.
Maybe he was glad Allen had been exposed and he had not.
What about this boy Allen who called yesterday?
Hide 'em in plain sight, so to speak, a la Edgar Allen Poe.
Allen and others; D.
ALLEN GRANBERY THURMAN (1813-1895), American jurist and statesman, was born at Lynchburg, Virginia, on the 13th of November 1813.
In 1819 he removed with his parents to Chillicothe, Ohio, where he attended the local academy for two years, studied law in the office of his uncle, William Allen,' and in 1835 was admitted to the bar, becoming his uncle's law partner.
Under the leadership of Ethan Allen, Seth Warner and Remember Baker (1737-1775), they refused obedience and took up arms in defence of their rights.
About the close of 1771 Colonel Allen organized a regular military force among the inhabitants of the district W.
16-17, July 24-25, September 25-28, October 30), and on the 1 5th of January 1777 adopted a declaration of independence, assumed the name New Connecticut and appointed Dr Jonas Fay (1 737 -, 818), Thomas Chittenden (1730-1797), Hemon Allen (1740-1788), Dr Reuben Jones and Jacob Bayley a committee to submit their proceedings to the Continental Congress.
Ethan Allen (q.v.) and some of the other leaders seemed inclined to accept these overtures, but for various reasons, the chief of which was the general success of the American cause, the scheme was soon abandoned.
The standard authorities for the period before 1791 are: Ira Allen, Natural and Political History of the State of Vermont (London, 1898); B.
The original story was read to her from a copy of "Andersen's Stories," published by Leavitt & Allen Bros., and may be found on p. 97 of Part I. in that volume.
In spite of what Allen thought, no incriminating words had crossed her lips.
