He dismounted, took Balashev's arm, and moving a few steps away from his suite, which waited respectfully, began to pace up and down with him, trying to speak significantly.
That's not right! cried the prince, and himself pushed it a few inches from the corner and then closer in again.
The peasants were ruined; some of them too had gone to Bogucharovo, only a few remained.
While still a few steps from the officer she unfolded the kerchief and took out of it a white twenty- five-ruble assignat and hastily handed it to him.
A few minutes later an officer came hurriedly out of the front door, gave an order, and the dragoons formed up in line.
A few infantrymen ran to the Kutafyev Gate.
One shot struck a French soldier's foot, and from behind the screens came the strange sound of a few voices shouting.
A few instants after the echo of the reports resounding over the stone- built Kremlin had died away the French heard a strange sound above their head.
The few inhabitants who had remained invited commanding officers to their houses, hoping thereby to secure themselves from being plundered.
For a few seconds he looked at him in silence.
The few glasses of wine he had drunk and the conversation with this good-natured man had destroyed the mood of concentrated gloom in which he had spent the last few days and which was essential for the execution of his design.
Stepping cautiously from one foot to the other she ran like a kitten the few steps to the door and grasped the cold door handle.
He had for some seconds been intently watching what was going on a few steps away.
While Pierre was running the few steps that separated him from the Frenchman, the tall marauder in the frieze gown was already tearing from her neck the necklace the young Armenian was wearing, and the young woman, clutching at her neck, screamed piercingly.
She had fallen ill unexpectedly a few days previously, had missed several gatherings of which she was usually ornament, and was said to be receiving no one, and instead of the celebrated Petersburg doctors who usually attended her had entrusted herself to some Italian doctor who was treating her in some new and unusual way.
Animated by that address Anna Pavlovna's guests talked for a long time of the state of the fatherland and offered various conjectures as to the result of the battle to be fought in a few days.
Having stood there a few moments, he strode back to Michaud and pressed his arm below the elbow with a vigorous movement.
A few days before the battle of Borodino, Nicholas received the necessary money and warrants, and having sent some hussars on in advance, he set out with post horses for Voronezh.
In very few words Nicholas bought seventeen picked stallions for six thousand rubles--to serve, as he said, as samples of his remounts.
After a few words about Princess Mary and her late father, whom Malvintseva had evidently not liked, and having asked what Nicholas knew of Prince Andrew, who also was evidently no favorite of hers, the important old lady dismissed Nicholas after repeating her invitation to come to see her.
A few days before his departure a special thanksgiving, at which Nicholas was present, was held in the cathedral for the Russian victory.
He had read only a few lines when he turned pale and his eyes opened wide with fear and joy.
The following day he saw Princess Mary off on her journey to Yaroslavl, and a few days later left to rejoin his regiment.
But a few days before they left Moscow, moved and excited by all that was going on, she called Sonya to her and, instead of reproaching and making demands on her, tearfully implored her to sacrifice herself and repay all that the family had done for her by breaking off her engagement with Nicholas.
A few minutes later Prince Andrew rang and Natasha went to him, but Sonya, feeling unusually excited and touched, remained at the window thinking about the strangeness of what had occurred.
But there seemed to be no one to celebrate this holiday: everywhere were blackened ruins, and the few Russians to be seen were tattered and frightened people who tried to hide when they saw the French.
The crowd consisted of a few Russians and many of Napoleon's soldiers who were not on duty--Germans, Italians, and Frenchmen, in a variety of uniforms.
In a few days Princess Mary was ready to start.
"Is it over?" said Princess Mary when his body had for a few minutes lain motionless, growing cold before them.
And they did indeed get somewhere, though not to their right places; a few eventually even got to their right place, but too late to be of any use and only in time to be fired at.
(The affair he had alluded to had happened a few days before--a fight between the prisoners and the French soldiers, in which Pierre had succeeded in pacifying his comrades.)
As they passed near a church in the Khamovniki (one of the few unburned quarters of Moscow) the whole mass of prisoners suddenly started to one side and exclamations of horror and disgust were heard.
When they had crossed the Crimean bridge the prisoners moved a few steps forward, halted, and again moved on, and from all sides vehicles and men crowded closer and closer together.
They advanced the few hundred paces that separated the bridge from the Kaluga road, taking more than an hour to do so, and came out upon the square where the streets of the Transmoskva ward and the Kaluga road converge, and the prisoners jammed close together had to stand for some hours at that crossway.
The approaching riders having descended a decline were no longer visible, but they reappeared a few minutes later.
Denisov had Tikhon called and, having praised him for his activity, said a few words in the elder's presence about loyalty to the Tsar and the country and the hatred of the French that all sons of the fatherland should cherish.
During the last few days many of the men have been seen to throw away their cartridges and their arms.
The soldiers, who are worn out with hunger and fatigue, need these supplies as well as a few days' rest.
Kutuzov was silent for a few seconds and then, submitting with evident reluctance to the duty imposed by his position, raised his head and began to speak.
He was as careful of the sowing and reaping of the peasants' hay and corn as of his own, and few landowners had their crops sown and harvested so early and so well, or got so good a return, as did Nicholas.
He knew that his every decision would be approved by them all with very few exceptions.
Nicholas went out into the porch to question him, and immediately after the elder had given a few replies the sound of cries and blows were heard.
We... actually, I... was thinking about adopting a few wild horses from out west where they have too many.
A few minutes after they left, Felipa arrived with an older woman she introduced simply as Maria.
Carmen couldn't make out more than a few words, but one of them was mare.
I think a few days cleaning in the stable would pay for it.
Then he put a few chunks of carrots and potatoes on the plate.
A few days later when Carmen and Destiny were visiting Katie, the issue popped out of her mouth in another conversation.
Carmen dozed in the chair a few times off and on until about midnight.
Destiny woke and ate a few bites before going back to sleep.
He said Destiny's fever had broken and if she continued to improve, they would take the tent off her bed in a few days.
Then she unbuttoned the first few buttons on his shirt and slipped her arms around his neck.
He took a few sips and finally broached the subject.
I shall order you destroyed in a few minutes, so you will have no need to ruin our pretty melon vines and berry bushes.
Jim hastened his lagging steps at this assurance of a quick relief from the dark passage.
A few days afterward the man came again.
"There are few men who can draw so good a picture of a fly," he said.
Books were very scarce and very precious, and only a few men could read them.
A few weeks passed by.
Today, for just a few hundred dollars, you can get a copy of your genome.
Highly specialized experts are a few keystrokes away and can be hired for just a few minutes or hours at a time.
Consider just a few of the mechanisms by which the Internet promotes trade that otherwise would not have occurred.
Because nanites are so small, they require little in the way of raw materials, just a few molecules here and there.
He paced up and down a few times in silence, but his eyes glittered feverishly and his lips quivered as he began speaking.
For a few minutes they held on to each other, kissing as if they hadn't seen each other in a week.
Christmas was only a few days away, and yet it didn't seem like Christmas.
