Sometimes he even did it when there was a room full of people between them.
In the waiting room were tradesmen, women, and officials, looking silently at one another.
It was unsatisfactory everywhere, but the corner behind the piano in the sitting room was better than other places: he had never slept there yet.
You are the most beautiful woman in the room tonight.
At that moment Count Rostopchin with his protruding chin and alert eyes, wearing the uniform of a general with sash over his shoulder, entered the room, stepping briskly to the front of the crowd of gentry.
The door of the Governor's room opened and they all rose and moved forward.
"Under the bed in your own room," was the reply.
Alex walked into the room, smiling when he saw what she had done.
As he started toward the doorway to their room, she called after him.
As she rounded the curve in the staircase, the room became silent.
She nodded, searching the room again for Alex.
Princess Mary noticed to her surprise that during this illness the old prince not only excluded her from his room, but did not admit Mademoiselle Bourienne either.
But the Governor did not finish: a dusty perspiring officer ran into the room and began to say something in French.
When the kids were settled in their room, she turned on Alex.
For a moment she watched them gracefully move across the room - totally in sync.
"I'll take her in the other room," she said, shaking her head when Alex started to assist her.
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.
From the foyer, they entered a huge room with a wide staircase that curved gracefully from the balcony on the second floor.
Later, as they walked back to their room, Jonathan looked up at Carmen.
And he's going to take you to his room after the dance.
Carmen rubbed her sore neck and searched the room for Alex again, but didn't find him.
"You speak to each other across the room with your eyes," she said as if it were some incredible feat.
One day he would order his camp bed to be set up in the glass gallery, another day he remained on the couch or on the lounge chair in the drawing room and dozed there without undressing, while--instead of Mademoiselle Bourienne--a serf boy read to him.
But as soon as he had left the room the old prince, looking uneasily round, threw down his napkin and went himself.
On moving to the drawing room he handed the letter to Princess Mary and, spreading out before him the plan of the new building and fixing his eyes upon it, told her to read the letter aloud.
The prince had a list of things to be bought in Smolensk and, walking up and down the room past Alpatych who stood by the door, he gave his instructions.
The fact is that I left my little pet in my dressing-room lying asleep upon the table; and you must have stolen in without my knowing it.
Then, one morning, Alfred went into his mother's room with a smiling, joyous face.
He walked out of the room chuckling.
When she reached Destiny's room, Jonathan was already dressed and was helping Destiny.
I don't want her to wake up in a strange room and not be able to find us.
From the host's room came the sounds of a child crying, the despairing sobs of a woman, and the hoarse angry shouting of Ferapontov.
At these words Alpatych nodded as if in approval, and not wishing to hear more went to the door of the room opposite the innkeeper's, where he had left his purchases.
Prince Vasili entered the room with the air of a happy conqueror who has attained the object of his desires.
She spent the night of the fourteenth as usual, without undressing, in the room next to the one where the prince lay.
Princess Mary entered her father's room and went up to his bed.
When she had left the room the prince again began speaking about his son, about the war, and about the Emperor, angrily twitching his brows and raising his hoarse voice, and then he had a second and final stroke.
She opened the door and the bright daylight in that previously darkened room startled her.
In the room were her nurse and other women.
Toward night candles were burning round his coffin, a pall was spread over it, the floor was strewn with sprays of juniper, a printed band was tucked in under his shriveled head, and in a corner of the room sat a chanter reading the psalms.
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.
After her father's funeral Princess Mary shut herself up in her room and did not admit anyone.
