He swirled the ice cubes around in his glass.
Katie ate her food and water cubes, waiting for Gabriel. She fingered the second necklace he'd given her, not convinced Andre was wrong. The beads felt like plastic, and something about Gabe had changed.
More than once someone had purchased frozen colostrum cubes from her to feed a newborn calf.

It pointed to her other hand – the one holding food cubes - then to the trees.
She counted the food and water cubes she had remaining.
Katie dumped a few of the cubes into her hand with another look at Andre. She drew a deep breath and tossed the cubes after Gabriel. She stopped walking as the cubes hit the ground behind him.
She reached the place where the food cubes had landed, bending to pick them up in case she needed them later.
The "Porisms" quoted are interesting propositions in the theory of numbers, one of which was clearly that the dif f erence between two cubes can be resolved into of two cubes.
The general type of problem is to find two, three or four numbers such that different expressions involving them in the first and second, and sometimes the third, degree are squares, cubes, partly squares and partly cubes, &c. E.g.

Other cubes of rock, apparently altars, exist in the neighbourhood.
Vii., 1776), Laplace announced his celebrated conclusion of the invariability of planetary mean motions, carrying the proof as far as the cubes of the eccentricities and inclinations.
It forms colourless, transparent rhombohedra, like those of Iceland spar; the angles are nearly equal to right angles, being 73° 30', so that the crystals look like cubes: hence the name of "cubic saltpetre."
It forms small cubes which melt at a red heat and volatilize readily.
The shops consist of small cubes, open in the front, in which the trader squats cross-legged amidst his wares.
It is easily soluble in water, from which it crystallizes in cubes, and also in alcohol.
The bromide and iodide crystallize from hot solutions in anhydrous cubes; from solutions at ordinary temperatures in monoclinic prisms with 2H 2 O; and at low temperatures with 5H 2 O.
Minute rods or needles of rutile are also common in slates, and well-formed cubes of pyrites are often visible on the splitting faces.
- Potassium fluoride, KF, is a very deliquescent salt, crystallizing in cubes and having a sharp saline taste, which is formed by neutralizing potassium carbonate or hydroxide with hydrofluoric acid and concentrating in platinum vessels.
In appearance it closely resembles the chloride, forming colourless cubes which readily dissolve in water and melt at 722°.
It forms colourless cubes which are readily soluble in water, melt at 685°, and yield a vapour of normal density.
(a) the standard yard, with all lineal measures and their squares and cubes based upon that;
There is great uncertainty as to the exact values of all ancient standards of volume -- the only precise data being those resulting from the theories of volumes derived from the cubes of feet and cubits.
It occurs crystallized, commonly in cubes, in schistose and slaty rocks, and less abundantly in the younger sedimentary deposits.
It crystallizes in the cubic system, usually in cubes, pentagonal dodecahedra or octahedra, often of great beauty and perfection.
Lorenz and others have employed similar methods, depending on the observation of the rate of change of temperature at certain points of bars, rings, cylinders, cubes or spheres.
Halite or rock-salt crystallizes in the cubic system, usually in cubes, rarely in octahedra; the cubes being solid, unlike the skeleton-cubes obtained by rapid evaporation of brine.
Minute vesicular cavities are not infrequently present, sometimes as negative cubes, and these may contain saline solutions or carbon dioxide or gaseous hydrocarbons.
It crystallizes in colourless cubes and volatilizes when heated very strongly.
It forms golden cubes which are unattacked by alkalis or by any acid except hydrofluoric. It appears to be a mixture of which the components vary with the materials and methods used in its production (Philipp, Ber., 1882, 15, p. 499).
A blue bronze, Na2W5015, forming dark blue cubes with a red reflex, is obtained by electrolysing fused sodium paratungstate; a purple-red variety, Na2W309, and a reddish yellow form result when sodium carbonate and sodium tungstate are heated respectively with tungsten trioxide and tinfoil.
Name Flussspat or Fluss.) Fluor-spar crystallizes in the cubic system, commonly in cubes, either alone or combined with the octahedron, rhombic dodecahedron, four-faced cube, &c. The four-faced cube has been called the fluoroid.
It is a long dead-level of rich fields, with a soil lighter in colour than that of Bengal or Behar; much more friable, and apt to split up into small cubes with a rectangular cleavage.
Johann Kepler had proved by an elaborate series of measurements that each planet revolves in an elliptical orbit round the sun, whose centre occupies one of the foci of the orbit, that the radius vector of each planet drawn from the sun describes equal areas in equal times, and that the squares of the periodic times of the planets are in the same proportion as the cubes of their mean distances from the sun.
This is commonly done where cubes are used; thus seven is represented by three pairs of cubes, with a single cube at the top.
She ate two more of the sugar cubes and a water cube, eyes lingering on the bloody mess that was her jumper in the corner.
Gabriel handed her the food and water gummy cubes she'd first had in Hell.
She considered throwing the tasteless food cubes to the trees he warned her against feeding every day.
Gabriel glanced at her and straightened. He handed her more food and water cubes then motioned for her to seat herself by the fire.
Andre's eyes fell to her body. Katie pointed to the dagger, and Andre shook his head. She indicated the satchel next. He nodded. She frowned and pulled out the contents: food and water cubes, holding them up for him.
The cubes were gone. Swiping at lively bushes, she inched forward, searching for the cubes.
Katie said, rising. The ground still rumbled, the trees surrounding both food cubes expanding fast and tearing up the ground in several directions as they did. She looked around, irritated to find she'd caused a chasm to form between them and the direction they'd been running.
She needed sleep and real food. Her hand went instinctively to her stomach, and she couldn't help wondering if the food and water cubes were good for the baby.
Toby was wrestling with a bush and didn't respond. Katie breathed deeply and pushed forward, wanting very much to stop and sleep but suspecting she'd never awaken if she did. She didn't have enough food cubes to drive off more than one more demon attack. They'd have to find Rhyn and Gabe fast.
Crystals have the form of small, sharply defined cubes of an oliveor grass-green colour, and occur together in considerable numbers on the matrix of the specimens.
The cubes fall from the cutting machine on to a riddling machine, which separates those which are defective in size from the rest.
When both the prism and the rhombohedron z are absent, the crystals resemble cubes in appearance, since the angles between the faces of the rhombohedron are 85° 46'.
It crystallizes in large transparent cubes, but rapidly dissociates into its constituents on exposure.
It crystallizes in colourless cubes, is deliquescent, and often inflames spontaneously on exposure to air.
It is also prepared by the action of iodine on gaseous phosphine, or by heating amorphous phosphorus with concentrated hydriodic acid solution to 160° C. It crystallizes in large cubes and sublimes readily.
Thus we speak of counting up to a certain number; and similarly mathematicians speak of high and ascending powers, while engineers speak of high pressure, high speed, high power, &c. This tendency is probably aided by the use of bricks or cubes in elementary number-teaching.
