The ground rumbled suddenly and the garage walls shook.
It all appeared innocent until her feet touched the ground, and then he pulled her close, wrapping his arms around her as his lips sought hers hungrily.
Her legs felt like posts, but she drug one foot in front of another until the ground under her feet seemed to change.
Cautiously her fingers felt the ground around her and touched the cold steel barrel.
The horse finally came into view and she slumped to the ground in relief.
They took their time, squatting on the dusty ground, letting minutes pass between bits of conversation.
The ground beneath them shook, and suddenly, the world slowed and fell quiet.
As she hopped the short distance from rocks to the ground leading up to the compound, she caught the silhouettes of two men against the cloudy sky.
As much as she would like to have offered to walk while he rode, she knew they would cover ground faster if she rode and he walked.
On the other side of the rocks, water sprang from the ground and spilled off a ledge into a large blue pool.
At the end of the pool, it seeped back into the ground between some more rocks.
Cassie stared at the ground numbly.
He spat a stream of brown fluid at the ground and grinned at her.
This treasure does not belong to me, for I bought only the ground; but when I offered it to my neighbor he refused it.
I learned how the sun and the rain make to grow out of the ground every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, how birds build their nests and live and thrive from land to land, how the squirrel, the deer, the lion and every other creature finds food and shelter.
I climbed the monument, counting the steps, and wondering as I went higher and yet higher if the soldiers had climbed this great stairway and shot at the enemy on the ground below.
A fire was kindled at the bottom of a deep hole in the ground, big sticks were laid crosswise at the top, and meat was hung from them and turned on spits.
Suddenly something happened: the young officer gave a gasp and bending double sat down on the ground like a bird shot on the wing.
Something dropped on the ground beside her and she opened her eyes.
She snatched the whip from the ground and glared at Bordeaux.
Bordeaux picked his hat off the ground and dusted himself off.
The rifle fire abated and the ground shook with the drumming of hooves.
Gentle hands lifted her from the ground, and she buried her face in Bordeaux's chest, sobbing.
They were served a kind of pancake that Bordeaux said was made from ground Mesquite beans.
In dry gourds, they were served a hot tea made from the ground leaves of something Bordeaux called the lip fern.
No stone left unturned until I see the blood of my tipster-nemesis flood the ground beneath her panicked body.
I dropped to the ground as he yanked the phone from its base and flung it across the room.
And poor, sweet Molly, dropped to the ground, like so much garbage.
Heat sensors haven't located any body heat unless they're below ground level.
Dusty ignored Bianca's searching look and punched the button for the ground floor.
He didn't realize how much until he actually needed their brutal take on reality to ground him.
"I can see through you and three yards into the ground under you," he continued, gazing at the floor in front of Dron.
The ground to the right--along the course of the Kolocha and Moskva rivers--was broken and hilly.
On the left the ground was more level; there were fields of grain, and the smoking ruins of Semenovsk, which had been burned down, could be seen.
Our right flank is over there"--he pointed sharply to the right, far away in the broken ground--"That's where the Moskva River is, and we have thrown up three redoubts there, very strong ones.
He crossed himself with an accustomed movement, bent till he touched the ground with his hand, and bowed his white head with a deep sigh.
When the service was over, Kutuzov stepped up to the icon, sank heavily to his knees, bowed to the ground, and for a long time tried vainly to rise, but could not do so on account of his weakness and weight.
At last he rose, kissed the icon as a child does with naively pouting lips, and again bowed till he touched the ground with his hand.
In front of Tuchkov's troops was some high ground not occupied by troops.
Prince Andrew looked out of the shed and saw Pierre, who had tripped over a pole on the ground and had nearly fallen, coming his way.
That part of the line was not entrenched and in front of it the ground was more open and level than elsewhere.
When he came to himself he was sitting on the ground leaning on his hands; the ammunition wagons he had been approaching no longer existed, only charred green boards and rags littered the scorched grass, and a horse, dangling fragments of its shaft behind it, galloped past, while another horse lay, like Pierre, on the ground, uttering prolonged and piercing cries.
