"But really, hadn't I better go away?" he asked, looking kindly at her over his spectacles.
And this man was saying we were going to the moon in a rocket ship made of metals we hadn't even invented.
No wonder Alex hadn't said anything about it.
Maybe she was right, and if Alex hadn't been such a perfect husband in every other way, she might have done it.
Then when she learned about Tessa's son, she was furious because he might inherit - even though I hadn't said anything to father.
In any case, Alex hadn't actually concealed his financial status.
She hadn't helped any by turning their past problems into a monetary issue.
Katie had been telling him that for years, but he hadn't seen it until now.
She paused for no more than a few moments, but apparently Giddon hadn't heard.
That would have been more convincing if you hadn't been so willing at first.
As if she hadn't been a burden in enough ways, now she had Mrs. Giddon upset with him.
If his experiences and observations hadn't led him to the concepts, SMALL, LARGE, GOOD, BAD, SWEET, SOUR, he would have nothing to attach the word-tags to.
Well, if you hadn't told me you were Russian, I should have wagered that you were Parisian!
He hadn't thought about a sitter before now, or hadn't thought about how much he would pay?
I hadn't planned on it.
She hadn't brushed or rinsed her mouth out since being sick on the plane.
Right now she wished she hadn't started this romancing thing.
I'd have killed him if they hadn't taken him away!
To be fair, his father hadn't made things any better by offering money to Alex and not his sister.
But then, Alex hadn't mentioned his family to her, either.
If Katie hadn't disclosed that incident to her before she met Alex, would he have revealed that facet of his past?
Why hadn't she thought of his comment in that context?
She greeted them with a big smile, hugging each of them as if they were old friends she hadn't seen in a decade.
For a few minutes they held on to each other, kissing as if they hadn't seen each other in a week.
Maybe she would have if she hadn't been shoving it from her mind.
She gazed out the window as if she hadn't noticed anything unusual.
Actually, she hadn't thought how it looked to others - and there had never been any doubt in her mind that she was fortunate to have Alex.
If he hadn't hid it from her all this time, it wouldn't be such a shock.
"If it hadn't been for his sister, I probably still wouldn't know," he mused.
He hadn't developed a liking for her.
And yet, if Señor Medena hadn't been so pushy, would he have accepted the inheritance?
Because she hadn't known him long?
And hadn't she been fooled by Allen?
They hadn't seen her in church for a while and they were worried about her.
As a matter of fact, he hadn't said that since he spent half the night with his old flame.
Hadn't they talked enough?
Why hadn't they tried it before?
