Still, it was something she should have asked when he first offered her the job.
I asked him if he ever wished to write his thoughts.
I asked him once if he was not sometimes tired at night, after working all day; and he answered, with a sincere and serious look, "Gorrappit, I never was tired in my life."
I have asked Golitsyn and he has refused.
Prince Vasili knew this, and having once realized that if he asked on behalf of all who begged of him, he would soon be unable to ask for himself, he became chary of using his influence.
"What for?" asked the girl.
At first, when my teacher told me about a new thing I asked very few questions.
"How long do you live, after you are picked?" asked Dorothy.
"Where is Lincoln?" asked one.

Carmen asked, and then made a face.

At that moment Anna Pavlovna came up and, looking severely at Pierre, asked the Italian how he stood Russian climate.
"There's more, isn't there," Carmen asked, watching Felipa's face.
They were so synchronized and fluid that Carmen asked Alex if they danced often.
"It could be a girl and a boy?" she asked hopefully.
Later that evening in their room Carmen asked him about the exchange.
Felipa asked in surprise.
"Did he touch you?" he asked sharply.
Katie asked her about the progress on the horse ranch.
"You can't find a sitter closer to your home?" she asked skeptically.
"Where do you work?" she asked, trying not to sound overly interested.
But when she asked Giddon to give Connie his phone number, he looked suspiciously from one of them to the other.

As he went along he looked with pleasure at the year's splendid crop of corn, scrutinized the strips of ryefield which here and there were already being reaped, made his calculations as to the sowing and the harvest, and asked himself whether he had not forgotten any of the prince's orders.
