Just then another visitor entered the drawing room: Prince Andrew Bolkonski, the little princess' husband.
Do you consider that assassination shows greatness of soul? said the little princess, smiling and drawing her work nearer to her.
Stout, about the average height, broad, with huge red hands; he did not know, as the saying is, how to enter a drawing room and still less how to leave one; that is, how to say something particularly agreeable before going away.
"They say the ball will be very good," replied the princess, drawing up her downy little lip.
Prince Andrew shook himself as if waking up, and his face assumed the look it had had in Anna Pavlovna's drawing room.
Drawing rooms, gossip, balls, vanity, and triviality--these are the enchanted circle I cannot escape from.
The countess herself and her handsome eldest daughter were in the drawing-room with the visitors who came to congratulate, and who constantly succeeded one another in relays.

When Natasha ran out of the drawing room she only went as far as the conservatory.
There she paused and stood listening to the conversation in the drawing room, waiting for Boris to come out.

Again the footmen rushed about, chairs scraped, and in the same order in which they had entered but with redder faces, the guests returned to the drawing room and to the count's study.
The card tables were drawn out, sets made up for boston, and the count's visitors settled themselves, some in the two drawing rooms, some in the sitting room, some in the library.
Prince Vasili said no more and his cheeks began to twitch nervously, now on one side, now on the other, giving his face an unpleasant expression which was never to be seen on it in a drawing room.
"Catiche has had tea served in the small drawing room," said Prince Vasili to Anna Mikhaylovna.
Pierre went with Anna Mikhaylovna into the small drawing room.
Pierre well remembered this small circular drawing room with its mirrors and little tables.
"Why don't you speak, cousin?" suddenly shrieked the princess so loud that those in the drawing room heard her and were startled.
She led him into the dark drawing room and Pierre was glad no one could see his face.
The little princess talked incessantly, her short, downy upper lip continually and rapidly touching her rosy nether lip when necessary and drawing up again next moment when her face broke into a smile of glittering teeth and sparkling eyes.
The old prince always dressed in old-fashioned style, wearing an antique coat and powdered hair; and when Prince Andrew entered his father's dressing room (not with the contemptuous look and manner he wore in drawing rooms, but with the animated face with which he talked to Pierre), the old man was sitting on a large leather-covered chair, wrapped in a powdering mantle, entrusting his head to Tikhon.

"Do you hear how he's walking?" said Tikhon, drawing the architect's attention to the sound of the prince's footsteps.

When Rostov met Sonya in the drawing room, he reddened.

It was at first impossible to enter the drawing-room door for the crowd of members and guests jostling one another and trying to get a good look at Bagration over each other's shoulders, as if he were some rare animal.

She forgot all fear of her father, went up to him, took his hand, and drawing him down put her arm round his thin, scraggy neck.
First he spun her round, holding her now with his left, now with his right hand, then falling on one knee he twirled her round him, and again jumping up, dashed so impetuously forward that it seemed as if he would rush through the whole suite of rooms without drawing breath, and then he suddenly stopped and performed some new and unexpected steps.
Vera was playing chess with Shinshin in the drawing room.
"Everything's still the same with them," thought Nicholas, glancing into the drawing room, where he saw Vera and his mother with the old lady.
Come here, dear! called the old countess from the drawing room.

He was that absent-minded crank, a grand seigneur husband who was in no one's way, and far from spoiling the high tone and general impression of the drawing room, he served, by the contrast he presented to her, as an advantageous background to his elegant and tactful wife.
He entered his wife's drawing room as one enters a theater, was acquainted with everybody, equally pleased to see everyone, and equally indifferent to them all.
And suddenly I saw him lying like a dead body; then he gradually recovered and went with me into my study carrying a large book of sheets of drawing paper; I said, "I drew that," and he answered by bowing his head.
When he entered the Rostovs' drawing room Natasha was in her own room.
When she heard of his arrival she almost ran into the drawing room, flushed and beaming with a more than cordial smile.

The Emperor passed on to the drawing room, the crowd made a rush for the doors, and several persons with excited faces hurried there and back again.

All rose and continuing to talk loudly went into the drawing room.
They received Pierre in their small, new drawing-room, where it was impossible to sit down anywhere without disturbing its symmetry, neatness, and order; so it was quite comprehensible and not strange that Berg, having generously offered to disturb the symmetry of an armchair or of the sofa for his dear guest, but being apparently painfully undecided on the matter himself, eventually left the visitor to settle the question of selection.
Berg and Vera could not repress their smiles of satisfaction at the sight of all this movement in their drawing room, at the sound of the disconnected talk, the rustling of dresses, and the bowing and scraping.
Pale and agitated, Natasha ran into the drawing room.
Natasha never remembered how she entered the drawing room.
At the same moment Natasha, without drawing breath, screamed joyously, ecstatically, and so piercingly that it set everyone's ear tingling.
Anisya Fedorovna flushed, and drawing her kerchief over her face went laughing out of the room.

Mademoiselle George was standing in a corner of the drawing room surrounded by young men.

Helene returned with Natasha to the drawing room.
The day before the count was to return, Sonya noticed that Natasha sat by the drawing-room window all the morning as if expecting something and that she made a sign to an officer who drove past, whom Sonya took to be Anatole.
Having briefly and exactly explained her wishes to him, she let him go to the drawing room.
The countess' drawing room was full of guests.
Pierre without greeting his wife whom he had not seen since his return-- at that moment she was more repulsive to him than ever--entered the drawing room and seeing Anatole went up to him.
"If you allow yourself in my drawing room..." whispered Helene, but Pierre did not reply and went out of the room.
"No, she has dressed and gone into the drawing room," said Sonya.
Natasha was standing in the middle of the drawing room, emaciated, with a pale set face, but not at all shamefaced as Pierre expected to find her.
Prince Andrew had an opportunity of getting a good look at him, for Pfuel arrived soon after himself and, in passing through to the drawing room, stopped a minute to speak to Chernyshev.

Just then Petya came running in from the drawing room.
Pierre walked up and down the drawing room, not listening to what Petya was saying.
Princess Mary saw Dessalles' embarrassed and astonished look fixed on her father, noticed his silence, and was struck by the fact that her father had forgotten his son's letter on the drawing-room table; but she was not only afraid to speak of it and ask Dessalles the reason of his confusion and silence, but was afraid even to think about it.
No, it was something, something in the drawing room.
At last we have a man! said he, glancing sternly and significantly round at everyone in the drawing room.
While this was taking place in Petersburg the French had already passed Smolensk and were drawing nearer and nearer to Moscow.
Just as horses shy and snort and gather about a dead horse, so the inmates of the house and strangers crowded into the drawing room round the coffin--the Marshal, the village Elder, peasant women--and all with fixed and frightened eyes, crossing themselves, bowed and kissed the old prince's cold and stiffened hand.
Taking his hand and drawing him downwards, Kutuzov offered his cheek to be kissed, and again Prince Andrew noticed tears in the old man's eyes.
The more he realized the absence of all personal motive in that old man--in whom there seemed to remain only the habit of passions, and in place of an intellect (grouping events and drawing conclusions) only the capacity calmly to contemplate the course of events--the more reassured he was that everything would be as it should.

But his comrade, throwing down the boots and drawing his sword, moved threateningly toward Pierre.
But when on Sunday after church the footman announced in the drawing room that Count Rostov had called, the princess showed no confusion, only a slight blush suffused her cheeks and her eyes lit up with a new and radiant light.
Mademoiselle Bourienne, who was in the drawing room, looked at Princess Mary in bewildered surprise.
Not noticing the monk, who had risen to greet her and was drawing back the wide sleeve on his right arm, she went up to Sonya and took her hand.
The countess took Princess Mary into the drawing room, where Sonya was talking to Mademoiselle Bourienne.
There was only one expression on her agitated face when she ran into the drawing room--that of love--boundless love for him, for her, and for all that was near to the man she loved; and of pity, suffering for others, and passionate desire to give herself entirely to helping them.
But drawing from his aged wisdom what they could understand, he told them of the golden bridge, and they laughed at and slandered him, flinging themselves on, rending and exulting over the dying beast.

And without linking up the events of the day or drawing a conclusion from them, Pierre closed his eyes, seeing a vision of the country in summertime mingled with memories of bathing and of the liquid, vibrating globe, and he sank into water so that it closed over his head.
"Mary," she said timidly, drawing Princess Mary's hand to herself, "Mary, you mustn't think me wicked.
Princess Mary roused him from his abstraction by drawing his attention to her nephew who had entered the room.
The countess was sitting with her companion Belova, playing grand- patience as usual, when Pierre and Natasha came into the drawing room with parcels under their arms.
When Pierre and his wife entered the drawing room the countess was in one of her customary states in which she needed the mental exertion of playing patience, and so--though by force of habit she greeted him with the words she always used when Pierre or her son returned after an absence: High time, my dear, high time!
Alex asked sharply, his brows drawing down.
His hand gently pressed on her waist, drawing her closer as he leaned down.

Dean handed Fitzgerald the photocopy of Martha's drawing and comments she and Cynthia had made.

Each day now was not drawing closer to wake-up time.

In any case, it looks like Ully needs to go back to the drawing board, and we use Rhyn for now to take out Sasha's henchmen.
"Listen, dear Annette," said the prince, suddenly taking Anna Pavlovna's hand and for some reason drawing it downwards.
Anna Pavlovna's drawing room was gradually filling.
Anna Pavlovna greeted him with the nod she accorded to the lowest hierarchy in her drawing room.
It was evident that he not only knew everyone in the drawing room, but had found them to be so tiresome that it wearied him to look at or listen to them.
A tall, stout, and proud-looking woman, with a round-faced smiling daughter, entered the drawing room, their dresses rustling.
The room went black and his arms instantly surrounded her, drawing her close in an eager embrace.
She threw the pillow over her head, drawing the light blanket up against her chin.
She retreated a step, regretting drawing his intensity.
I draw and paint, she said, flustered as his gaze stayed on the drawing of them holding hands.
