You ready for round two?
No more so than the area round the house.
It gurgled contentedly as it slowed to round the bend.
"I win this round," Darkyn said, a faint smile on his face.
She's volunteered to help me round up the people and knows, like, everyone in town.
"I win this round," Darkyn said.
Blue eyes sparkled like sapphires in her round face, and a dimple danced at the corner of her generous mouth.
"Chances are, the demons will be defeated this round," Darkyn said.
The round chamber was much like the streets: peaceful and clean.
"Darkyn won this round," she said again. "I can dispel the demons, but they'll return. As long as I am here, the barrier will remain weak. There are Codes older than me, older even than my predecessors. I have no choice. I interfered, and now I must relinquish my title. I'm leaving."
She smiled, blue eyes twinkling above round flushed cheeks.
Its cool year-round creek and rolling hills dotted with wild flowers filled her dreams at night – beckoned.
And the group was off on another round of stories.
I sent him round to the Planters'.
Her paranoia faded with the first round of beers and disappeared completely by the third.
Leery of the madman's summons, he followed the page to the round chamber.
It might be a while before I round him up but you look pretty comfy.
Hilden glanced around the round chamber, which had fallen quiet after his words.
He was muscular and tall, clothed in dark jeans, a snug grey T-shirt that hugged his biceps and stretched across his chest and back and then sagged at his slender torso and hips, and a round black medallion that fell from his T-shirt as he leaned over her.
A small, round object twice the size of a dinner plate appeared from the chasm and skimmed over several feet of grass to reach them.
"Don't be rough!" he would call out, if Eureka knocked over one of the round, fat piglets with her paw; but the pigs never minded, and enjoyed the sport very greatly.
"No you can't," remarked Jim, with a twinkle in his round eyes.
He shall have all the rooms in the house, and the ladies' parlor, too, I'll go right round to the Planters' and fetch him back.
Women's fuss! muttered Alpatych to himself and started on his journey, looking round at the fields of yellow rye and the still- green, thickly growing oats, and at other quite black fields just being plowed a second time.
It was roughly round with a narrow panhandle that was closest to the fortress.
"Darkyn won this round," she said.
He saw its shaggy head and big round eyes.
There was little interest in another round of Monopoly.
Howie showed no signs of the anxiety he displayed on round one but his eagerness kept him awake.
Dressed in the seductive clothing of Hell, her body's gentle shape appeared voluptuous, her narrow shoulders exposed, her round hips and breasts enhanced.
The round tub was luxurious, and her thoughts turned a different direction.
Any other day, she'd have stared at his hard body and the way his jeans hugged his muscular thighs and the round globes of his backside, or the T-shirt that fit so well.
You can say it --Kris won't let me forget I'm a square in a round hole.
A waist-high bathtub and a round disc serving as an alien toilet, also waist-high, were on one wall.
I'm going down to see her and try to straighten things out—a quick round trip.
"The gods have long since forgotten any of us," Taran answered, glancing around the round chamber.
The silver lined clothing marked him a man of rank, and he wore a round pendant with the seal of Dierdirien: two mountains and a stream.
He discovered their whereabouts when he hand-delivered the first round of trainees – minus a few pints of blood – who were stupid enough to challenge him instead of backing off like the experienced Guardians did.
"Nonsense!" said the little man, turning red--although just then a ray of violet sunlight was on his round face.
Their bodies were round, their legs short and thick and their arms extraordinarily long and stout.
He leaped from his hiding place and clasped it round its neck.
"Well, then," answered the stranger, "I will see what they can do for me at the Planters' Tavern, round the corner;" and he rode away.
The market man wrapped a paper round it and put it in the basket.
There they might live in peace and safety while all the country round was overrun by rude and barbarous men.
I danced and capered round the tree in an ecstasy.
I knew I could not see; but it did not seem possible that all the eager, loving children who gathered round me and joined heartily in my frolics were also blind.
Round the house was a wide piazza, where the mountain winds blew, sweet with all wood-scents.
Frequently we came upon impassable thickets which forced us to take a round about way.
Every day in imagination I made a trip round the world, and I saw many wonders from the uttermost parts of the earth--marvels of invention, treasuries of industry and skill and all the activities of human life actually passed under my finger tips.
My mind stirred with the stirring times, and the characters round which the life of two contending nations centred seemed to move right before me.
One could have traveled round the word many times while I trudged my weary way through the labyrinthine mazes of grammars and dictionaries, or fell into those dreadful pitfalls called examinations, set by schools and colleges for the confusion of those who seek after knowledge.
Her eyes are very big and blue, and her cheeks are soft and round and rosy and her hair is very bright and golden.
He has big brown eyes and long golden hair and pretty round cheeks.
I have laughed at the poor duck, with the red rag tied round its leg.
I wish the Wrentham woods were round the corner!
To THE GREAT ROUND WORLD Cambridge, Feb. 16, 1901.
The Great Round World, New York City.
It would be splendid to have The Great Round World printed in "language that can be felt."
I trust that the effort of The Great Round World to bring light to those who sit in darkness will receive the encouragement and support it so richly deserves.
But why should not the friends of the blind assist The Great Round World, if necessary?
The point of this gold indicator bends over the edge of the case, round which are set eleven raised points--the stem forms the twelfth.
She tied the ends together when she had finished the string, and put the beads round her neck.
Then she went all round the table to see who was there, and finding no one but me, she seemed bewildered.
It was evident that she recognized the dog; for she put her arms round her neck and squeezed her.
I showed her the napkin and pinned it round her neck, then tore it off and threw it on the floor and shook my head.
Then she dropped on the ground and asked for its name and pointed to the pump and the trellis, and suddenly turning round she asked for my name.
Let him go and come freely, let him touch real things and combine his impressions for himself, instead of sitting indoors at a little round table, while a sweet-voiced teacher suggests that he build a stone wall with his wooden blocks, or make a rainbow out of strips of coloured paper, or plant straw trees in bead flower-pots.
When the sun got round to the window where she was sitting with her book, she got up impatiently and shut the window.
The little fellow who whirls his "New York Flyer" round the nursery, making "horseshoe curves" undreamed of by less imaginative engineers, is concentrating his whole soul on his toy locomotive.
She also felt a Greek chariot, and the charioteer would have liked to take her round the ring; but she was afraid of "many swift horses."
I tried to hurry Helen out-of-doors, but she kept her arm extended, and every coat-tail she touched must needs turn round and give an account of the children he left at home, and receive kisses according to their number.
She was delighted with the orchestra at the hotel, and whenever the music began she danced round the room, hugging and kissing every one she happened to touch.
After all, the man whose horse trots a mile in a minute does not carry the most important messages; he is not an evangelist, nor does he come round eating locusts and wild honey.
And so, if the railroad reached round the world, I think that I should keep ahead of you; and as for seeing the country and getting experience of that kind, I should have to cut your acquaintance altogether.
I think I shall not buy greedily, but go round and round it as long as I live, and be buried in it first, that it may please me the more at last.
New England can hire all the wise men in the world to come and teach her, and board them round the while, and not be provincial at all.
If it is necessary, omit one bridge over the river, go round a little there, and throw one arch at least over the darker gulf of ignorance which surrounds us.
A bird sits on the next bough, life-everlasting grows under the table, and blackberry vines run round its legs; pine cones, chestnut burs, and strawberry leaves are strewn about.
Sometimes one would circle round and round me in the woods a few feet distant as if tethered by a string, when probably I was near its eggs.
Looking around he would exclaim "By George!"
In the winter he had a fire by which at noon he warmed his coffee in a kettle; and as he sat on a log to eat his dinner the chickadees would sometimes come round and alight on his arm and peck at the potato in his fingers; and he said that he "liked to have the little fellers about him."
But sometimes it was a really noble and inspiring strain that reached these woods, and the trumpet that sings of fame, and I felt as if I could spit a Mexican with a good relish--for why should we always stand for trifles?--and looked round for a woodchuck or a skunk to exercise my chivalry upon.
This is the result of my experience in raising beans: Plant the common small white bush bean about the first of June, in rows three feet by eighteen inches apart, being careful to select fresh round and unmixed seed.
In our most trivial walks, we are constantly, though unconsciously, steering like pilots by certain well-known beacons and headlands, and if we go beyond our usual course we still carry in our minds the bearing of some neighboring cape; and not till we are completely lost, or turned round--for a man needs only to be turned round once with his eyes shut in this world to be lost--do we appreciate the vastness and strangeness of nature.
In such a day, in September or October, Walden is a perfect forest mirror, set round with stones as precious to my eye as if fewer or rarer.
In the music of the harp which trembles round the world it is the insisting on this which thrills us.
At length, as I leaned with my elbow on the bench one day, it ran up my clothes, and along my sleeve, and round and round the paper which held my dinner, while I kept the latter close, and dodged and played at bopeep with it; and when at last I held still a piece of cheese between my thumb and finger, it came and nibbled it, sitting in my hand, and afterward cleaned its face and paws, like a fly, and walked away.
The parent will sometimes roll and spin round before you in such a dishabille, that you cannot, for a few moments, detect what kind of creature it is.
They tell me that if the fox would remain in the bosom of the frozen earth he would be safe, or if he would run in a straight line away no foxhound could overtake him; but, having left his pursuers far behind, he stops to rest and listen till they come up, and when he runs he circles round to his old haunts, where the hunters await him.
At length the old hound burst into view with muzzle to the ground, and snapping the air as if possessed, and ran directly to the rock; but, spying the dead fox, she suddenly ceased her hounding as if struck dumb with amazement, and walked round and round him in silence; and one by one her pups arrived, and, like their mother, were sobered into silence by the mystery.
These alders loomed through the mist at regular intervals as you walked half way round the pond.
It is not worth the while to go round the world to count the cats in Zanzibar.
The little princess went round the table with quick, short, swaying steps, her workbag on her arm, and gaily spreading out her dress sat down on a sofa near the silver samovar, as if all she was doing was a pleasure to herself and to all around her.
Pierre murmured something unintelligible, and continued to look round as if in search of something.
One, chiefly masculine, had formed round the abbe.
The third group was gathered round Mortemart and Anna Pavlovna.
Anna Pavlovna arranged a group round him, inviting everyone to listen to his tale.
The princess rested her bare round arm on a little table and considered a reply unnecessary.
When he returned to Moscow his father dismissed the abbe and said to the young man, Now go to Petersburg, look round, and choose your profession.
Some eight or nine young men were crowding anxiously round an open window.
Pierre drank one glass after another, looking from under his brows at the tipsy guests who were again crowding round the window, and listening to their chatter.
Dolokhov turned round and, again holding on with both hands, arranged himself on his seat.
Saying this he again turned round, dropped his hands, took the bottle and lifted it to his lips, threw back his head, and raised his free hand to balance himself.
Wait a bit and I'll get round him....
And he caught the bear, took it in his arms, lifted it from the ground, and began dancing round the room with it.
A tall, stout, and proud-looking woman, with a round-faced smiling daughter, entered the drawing room, their dresses rustling.
The count jumped up and, swaying from side to side, spread his arms wide and threw them round the little girl who had run in.
Sonya was a slender little brunette with a tender look in her eyes which were veiled by long lashes, thick black plaits coiling twice round her head, and a tawny tint in her complexion and especially in the color of her slender but graceful and muscular arms and neck.
In the midst of his talk he glanced round at her.
Boris paused in the middle of the room, looked round, brushed a little dust from the sleeve of his uniform, and going up to a mirror examined his handsome face.
Sonya, muttering to herself, kept looking round toward the drawing-room door.
She grew confused, glanced round, and, seeing the doll she had thrown down on one of the tubs, picked it up.
The young people, at the countess' instigation, gathered round the clavichord and harp.
She looked round and seeing that her friend was not in the room ran to look for her.
And indeed everybody in the room looked with a smile of pleasure at the jovial old gentleman, who standing beside his tall and stout partner, Marya Dmitrievna, curved his arms, beat time, straightened his shoulders, turned out his toes, tapped gently with his foot, and, by a smile that broadened his round face more and more, prepared the onlookers for what was to follow.
His eyes too seemed strange; at one moment they looked impudently sly and at the next glanced round in alarm.
He seemed to have grown thinner since the morning; his eyes seemed larger than usual when he glanced round and noticed Pierre.
Pierre well knew this large room divided by columns and an arch, its walls hung round with Persian carpets.
Prince Vasili in front of the door, near the invalid chair, a wax taper in his left hand, was leaning his left arm on the carved back of a velvet chair he had turned round for the purpose, and was crossing himself with his right hand, turning his eyes upward each time he touched his forehead.
He judged by the cautious movements of those who crowded round the invalid chair that they had lifted the dying man and were moving him.
The prince was working at the lathe and after glancing round continued his work.
And with a glance round, she smiled at Tikhon, at her husband, and at the footman who accompanied them.
Dolokhov looked round but did not say anything, nor did the mocking smile on his lips change.
A drummer, their leader, turned round facing the singers, and flourishing his arm, began a long-drawn-out soldiers' song, commencing with the words: "Morning dawned, the sun was rising," and concluding: "On then, brothers, on to glory, led by Father Kamenski."
"I say, come round some evening and we'll have a game of faro!" said Zherkov.
But at that instant a tall Austrian general in a greatcoat, with the order of Maria Theresa on his neck and a black bandage round his head, who had evidently just arrived, entered quickly, slamming the door.
Nesvitski with a laugh threw his arms round Prince Andrew, but Bolkonski, turning still paler, pushed him away with an angry look and turned to Zherkov.
"Then I'll have it brought round," said Rostov wishing to avoid Telyanin, and he went out to give the order.
I only came round to ask Denisov about yesterday's order.
"Come, that's right, Count!" cried the staff captain, turning round and clapping Rostov on the shoulder with his big hand.
The officers gladly gathered round him, some on their knees, some squatting Turkish fashion on the wet grass.
Looking down over the rails Prince Nesvitski saw the rapid, noisy little waves of the Enns, which rippling and eddying round the piles of the bridge chased each other along.
"Just see where it carries to!" a soldier near by said sternly, looking round at the sound.
Nesvitski looked round and saw, some fifteen paces away but separated by the living mass of moving infantry, Vaska Denisov, red and shaggy, with his cap on the back of his black head and a cloak hanging jauntily over his shoulder.
But despite himself, on his face too that same indication of something new and stern showed round the mouth.
Two were misdirected and the shot went too high, but the last round fell in the midst of a group of hussars and knocked three of them over.
Prince Andrew and the others gathered round these two.
"The Berlin cabinet cannot express a feeling of alliance," began Hippolyte gazing round with importance at the others, "without expressing... as in its last note... you understand...
They hastily turned round to him asking if he had any news.
Prince Andrew, without replying, asked the prince's permission to ride round the position to see the disposition of the forces, so as to know his bearings should he be sent to execute an order.
Soldiers scattered over the whole place were dragging logs and brushwood and were building shelters with merry chatter and laughter; around the fires sat others, dressed and undressed, drying their shirts and leg bands or mending boots or overcoats and crowding round the boilers and porridge cookers.
Another company, a lucky one for not all the companies had vodka, crowded round a pockmarked, broad-shouldered sergeant major who, tilting a keg, filled one after another the canteen lids held out to him.
A young officer with a bewildered and pained expression on his face stepped away from the man and looked round inquiringly at the adjutant as he rode by.
Having ridden round the whole line from right flank to left, Prince Andrew made his way up to the battery from which the staff officer had told him the whole field could be seen.
Prince Bagration screwed up his eyes, looked round, and, seeing the cause of the confusion, turned away with indifference, as if to say, "Is it worth while noticing trifles?"
The short, round- shouldered Captain Tushin, stumbling over the tail of the gun carriage, moved forward and, not noticing the general, looked out shading his eyes with his small hand.
Another, without looking round, as though fearing to relax, shouted with his mouth wide open and passed on.
Bagration rode round the ranks that had marched past him and dismounted.
Several of our men fell, among them the round-faced officer who had marched so gaily and complacently.
But at the moment the first report was heard, Bagration looked round and shouted, "Hurrah!"
A shudder of terror went through him: "No, better not look," he thought, but having reached the bushes he glanced round once more.
The French had fallen behind, and just as he looked round the first man changed his run to a walk and, turning, shouted something loudly to a comrade farther back.
The French swarming round their guns seemed to him like ants.
Tushin turned round in dismay.
He kept closing his eyes and then again looking at the fire, which seemed to him dazzlingly red, and at the feeble, round-shouldered figure of Tushin who was sitting cross-legged like a Turk beside him.
He half rose, meaning to go round, but the aunt handed him the snuffbox, passing it across Helene's back.
Helene stooped forward to make room, and looked round with a smile.
And Pierre, anxiously trying to remember whether he had done anything reprehensible, looked round with a blush.
Prince Vasili was not having any supper: he went round the table in a merry mood, sitting down now by one, now by another, of the guests.
The wax candles burned brightly, the silver and crystal gleamed, so did the ladies' toilets and the gold and silver of the men's epaulets; servants in scarlet liveries moved round the table, the clatter of plates, knives, and glasses mingled with the animated hum of several conversations.
The prince turned round to the overseer and fixed his eyes on him, frowning.
He regarded his whole life as a continual round of amusement which someone for some reason had to provide for him.
Prince Vasili's two valets were busy dressing him, and he looked round with much animation and cheerfully nodded to his son as the latter entered, as if to say: "Yes, that's how I want you to look."
He entered the drawing room with his usual alert step, glancing rapidly round the company.
She feared to look round, it seemed to her that someone was there standing behind the screen in the dark corner.
When she heard this Sonya blushed so that tears came into her eyes and, unable to bear the looks turned upon her, ran away into the dancing hall, whirled round it at full speed with her dress puffed out like a balloon, and, flushed and smiling, plumped down on the floor.
Rostov, who had just celebrated his promotion to a cornetcy and bought Denisov's horse, Bedouin, was in debt all round, to his comrades and the sutlers.
Berg and Boris, having rested after yesterday's march, were sitting, clean and neatly dressed, at a round table in the clean quarters allotted to them, playing chess.
"As to your business," Prince Andrew continued, addressing Boris, "we will talk of it later" (and he looked round at Rostov).
The one who was writing and whom Boris addressed turned round crossly and told him Bolkonski was on duty and that he should go through the door on the left into the reception room if he wished to see him.
Everything is now centered round the Emperor.
The officers gathered round Denisov's canteen, eating and talking.
The officers got up and stood round the Cossacks and their prisoner.
Not daring to look round and without looking round, he was ecstatically conscious of his approach.
Rostov saw how the Emperor's rather round shoulders shuddered as if a cold shiver had run down them, how his left foot began convulsively tapping the horse's side with the spur, and how the well-trained horse looked round unconcerned and did not stir.
The hussars crowded round and responded heartily with loud shouts.
That's the sort of man he is, and nothing more, replied Dolgorukov, looking round at Bilibin with a smile.
Then Miloradovich looked round significantly at the other generals.
Langeron lifted his eyes with an expression of perplexity, turned round to Miloradovich as if seeking an explanation, but meeting the latter's impressive but meaningless gaze drooped his eyes sadly and again took to twirling his snuffbox.
"In that case he is inviting his doom by awaiting our attack," said Langeron, with a subtly ironical smile, again glancing round for support to Miloradovich who was near him.
Kutuzov here woke up, coughed heavily, and looked round at the generals.
He readjusted himself in the saddle and touched up his horse to ride once more round his hussars.
Rostov, still looking round toward the fires and the shouts, rode with the sergeant to meet some mounted men who were riding along the line.
The fires and shouting in the enemy's army were occasioned by the fact that while Napoleon's proclamation was being read to the troops the Emperor himself rode round his bivouacs.
The position we occupy is a strong one, and while they are marching to go round me on the right they will expose a flank to me.
The officers were hurriedly drinking tea and breakfasting, the soldiers, munching biscuit and beating a tattoo with their feet to warm themselves, gathering round the fires throwing into the flames the remains of sheds, chairs, tables, wheels, tubs, and everything that they did not want or could not carry away with them.
"Do order them to form into battalion columns and go round the village!" he said angrily to a general who had ridden up.
Kutuzov turned round without answering and his eye happened to fall upon Prince Andrew, who was beside him.
When the soldiers of the regiment in front of which Kutuzov was standing began to shout, he rode a little to one side and looked round with a frown.
He was slightly flushed after galloping two miles, and reining in his horse he sighed restfully and looked round at the faces of his suite, young and animated as his own.
The Tsar heard but obviously did not like the reply; he shrugged his rather round shoulders and glanced at Novosiltsev who was near him, as if complaining of Kutuzov.
But at that very instant a cloud of smoke spread all round, firing was heard quite close at hand, and a voice of naive terror barely two steps from Prince Andrew shouted, Brothers!
Another in the same place turned round and fired in the air; a third was striking the horse Kutuzov himself rode.
Having passed the Guards and traversed an empty space, Rostov, to avoid again getting in front of the first line as he had done when the Horse Guards charged, followed the line of reserves, going far round the place where the hottest musket fire and cannonade were heard.
"But be that what it may," he reflected, "there is no riding round it now.
When he had ridden about two miles and had passed the last of the Russian troops, he saw, near a kitchen garden with a ditch round it, two men on horseback facing the ditch.
And he turned round and galloped back to the place where he had seen the Emperor, but there was no one beyond the ditch now.
The soldiers who had carried Prince Andrew had noticed and taken the little gold icon Princess Mary had hung round her brother's neck, but seeing the favor the Emperor showed the prisoners, they now hastened to return the holy image.
"Darling Denisov!" screamed Natasha, beside herself with rapture, springing to him, putting her arms round him, and kissing him.
Denisov was shown to the room prepared for him, and the Rostovs all gathered round Nicholas in the sitting room.
The old countess, not letting go of his hand and kissing it every moment, sat beside him: the rest, crowding round him, watched every movement, word, or look of his, never taking their blissfully adoring eyes off him.
Sonya, when he came in, was twirling round and was about to expand her dresses into a balloon and sit down.
The largest circles formed round Count Rostopchin, Valuev, and Naryshkin.
Pierre clutched his temples, and turning round went into the forest, trampling through the deep snow, and muttering incoherent words:
He woke up and looked round for a while with a startled expression, unable to realize where he was.
When Princess Mary went to him at the usual hour he was working at his lathe and, as usual, did not look round at her.
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.
Suddenly her door opened softly and her old nurse, Praskovya Savishna, who hardly ever came to that room as the old prince had forbidden it, appeared on the threshold with a shawl round her head.
Strands of her black hair lay round her inflamed and perspiring cheeks, her charming rosy mouth with its downy lip was open and she was smiling joyfully.
Prince Andrew went round the sofa and kissed her forehead.
He was standing close to the door and as soon as it opened his rough old arms closed like a vise round his son's neck, and without a word he began to sob like a child.
His grandfather, who was his godfather, trembling and afraid of dropping him, carried the infant round the battered tin font and handed him over to the godmother, Princess Mary.
He glided silently on one foot half across the room, and seeming not to notice the chairs was dashing straight at them, when suddenly, clinking his spurs and spreading out his legs, he stopped short on his heels, stood so a second, stamped on the spot clanking his spurs, whirled rapidly round, and, striking his left heel against his right, flew round again in a circle.
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.
When at last, smartly whirling his partner round in front of her chair, he drew up with a click of his spurs and bowed to her, Natasha did not even make him a curtsy.
Some twenty men were gathered round a table at which Dolokhov sat between two candles.
The game continued; a waiter kept handing round champagne.
Twenty-one rubles, he said, pointing to the figure twenty-one by which the total exceeded the round sum of forty-three thousand; and taking up a pack he prepared to deal.
The young people, after returning from the theater, had had supper and were grouped round the clavichord.
Without undressing, he lay down on the leather sofa in front of a round table, put his big feet in their overboots on the table, and began to reflect.
After reading the first words of the Gospel: "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God," Pierre went round the table and saw a large open box filled with something.
Round a long table covered with black sat some twelve men in garments like those he had already seen.
Round it stood seven large candlesticks like those used in churches.
Pierre, perplexed, looked round with his shortsighted eyes without obeying, and suddenly doubts arose in his mind.
He finished and, getting up, embraced and kissed Pierre, who, with tears of joy in his eyes, looked round him, not knowing how to answer the congratulations and greetings from acquaintances that met him on all sides.
He did not look round, but still gazing at the infant's face listened to his regular breathing.
Round the house was a garden newly laid out.
And would you now like to look round my place?
Two women ran out after them, and all four, looking round at the carriage, ran in dismay up the steps of the back porch.
"Really?" said Pierre, gazing over his spectacles with curiosity and seriousness (for which Princess Mary was specially grateful to him) into Ivanushka's face, who, seeing that she was being spoken about, looked round at them all with crafty eyes.
Despite their pale swollen faces and tattered uniforms, the hussars formed line for roll call, kept things in order, groomed their horses, polished their arms, brought in straw from the thatched roofs in place of fodder, and sat down to dine round the caldrons from which they rose up hungry, joking about their nasty food and their hunger.
Rostov glanced round, looking for someone who would put this man back in his place and bring him water.
His hospital companions, who had gathered round Rostov--a fresh arrival from the world outside--gradually began to disperse as soon as Denisov began reading his answer.
"Yes, wait a bit," said Denisov, glancing round at the officers, and taking his papers from under his pillow he went to the window, where he had an inkpot, and sat down to write.
In his civilian clothes and a round hat, he wandered about the town, staring at the French and their uniforms and at the streets and houses where the Russian and French Emperors were staying.
A rumble of Russian and French voices and laughter filled the air round the tables in the square.
So vividly did he recall that hospital stench of dead flesh that he looked round to see where the smell came from.
I feel like sitting down on my heels, putting my arms round my knees like this, straining tight, as tight as possible, and flying away!
I looked round and saw Brother A. standing on the fence and pointing me to a broad avenue and garden, and in the garden was a large and beautiful building.
Well, you will be coming," he was going to say, "to dine," but changed his mind and said "to take tea with us," and quickly doubling up his tongue he blew a small round ring of tobacco smoke, perfectly embodying his dream of happiness.
He looked round more frequently toward her, and broke off in what he was saying.
The countess--her prayerful mood dispelled--looked round and frowned.
And seizing her mother round the neck, she kissed her on the throat.
As she said this the countess looked round at her daughter.
Whatever was spoken of he would bring round to the superstitiousness of old maids, or the petting and spoiling of children.
"Uncle" looked round disapprovingly at Petya and Natasha.
Rostov, having finally settled with "Uncle" where they should set on the hounds, and having shown Natasha where she was to stand--a spot where nothing could possibly run out--went round above the ravine.
The count, like a punished schoolboy, looked round, trying by a smile to win Simon's sympathy for his plight.
He was galloping round by the bushes while the field was coming up on both sides, all trying to head the wolf, but it vanished into the wood before they could do so.
Rostov, holding his breath, looked round at the borzois.
"Karay, ulyulyu!..." he shouted, looking round for the old borzoi who was now his only hope.
Nicholas and his attendant, with "Uncle" and his huntsman, were all riding round the wolf, crying "ulyulyu!" shouting and preparing to dismount each moment that the wolf crouched back, and starting forward again every time she shook herself and moved toward the wood where she would be safe.
"A full-grown one?" asked Ilagin as he approached the whip who had sighted the hare--and not without agitation he looked round and whistled to Erza.
A moment later everyone had drawn up round the crowd of dogs.
Only the delighted "Uncle" dismounted, and cut off a pad, shaking the hare for the blood to drip off, and anxiously glancing round with restless eyes while his arms and legs twitched.
He accompanied them on foot as far as the bridge that could not be crossed, so that they had to go round by the ford, and he sent huntsmen to ride in front with lanterns.
Sonya sat in the drawing room at the round table, copying a design for embroidery.
She jumped on it, putting her arms round his neck, and he pranced along with her.
The servants stood round the table--but Prince Andrew was not there and life was going on as before.
But Natasha stayed by her mother and glanced round as if looking for something.
And do you remember how we rolled hard-boiled eggs in the ballroom, and suddenly two old women began spinning round on the carpet?
"Yes, we're philosophizing," said Natasha, glancing round for a moment and then continuing the conversation.
Besides, you wouldn't have room to turn round there.
It was so light that he could see the moonlight reflected from the metal harness disks and from the eyes of the horses, who looked round in alarm at the noisy party under the shadow of the porch roof.
Nicholas glanced round at Sonya, and bent down to see her face closer.
And he looked round in the sleigh.
Princess Mary, too, went round to him.
"There, my dear princess, I've brought you my songstress," said the count, bowing and looking round uneasily as if afraid the old prince might appear.
If you'll allow me to leave my Natasha in your hands for a quarter of an hour, Princess, I'll drive round to see Anna Semenovna, it's quite near in the Dogs' Square, and then I'll come back for her.
A tall, beautiful woman with a mass of plaited hair and much exposed plump white shoulders and neck, round which she wore a double string of large pearls, entered the adjoining box rustling her heavy silk dress and took a long time settling into her place.
While Natasha was fixing her gaze on her for the second time the lady looked round and, meeting the count's eyes, nodded to him and smiled.
In the second act there was scenery representing tombstones, there was a round hole in the canvas to represent the moon, shades were raised over the footlights, and from horns and contrabass came deep notes while many people appeared from right and left wearing black cloaks and holding things like daggers in their hands.
Natasha looked round at her, and then, red and trembling, threw a frightened look of inquiry at Anatole and moved toward the door.
If the old man came round it would be all the better to visit him in Moscow or at Bald Hills later on; and if not, the wedding, against his wishes, could only be arranged at Otradnoe.
Why, she'll rush out more dead than alive just in the things she is wearing; if you delay at all there'll be tears and 'Papa' and 'Mamma,' and she's frozen in a minute and must go back--but you wrap the fur cloak round her first thing and carry her to the sleigh.
"That's the way," said Dolokhov, "and then so!" and he turned the collar up round her head, leaving only a little of the face uncovered.
"Go!" he cried, twisting the reins round his hands, and the troyka tore down the Nikitski Boulevard.
With compressed and parched lips and dry fixed eyes, she sat at the window, uneasily watching the people who drove past and hurriedly glancing round at anyone who entered the room.
When the count came to see her she turned anxiously round at the sound of a man's footstep, and then her face resumed its cold and malevolent expression.
She glanced round at him, frowned, and left the room with an expression of cold dignity.
Anatole glanced round at his sister and rose submissively, ready to follow Pierre.
Four days before, sentinels of the Preobrazhensk regiment had stood in front of the house to which Balashev was conducted, and now two French grenadiers stood there in blue uniforms unfastened in front and with shaggy caps on their heads, and an escort of hussars and uhlans and a brilliant suite of aides-de-camp, pages, and generals, who were waiting for Napoleon to come out, were standing at the porch, round his saddle horse and his Mameluke, Rustan.
And that morning Colonel Michaud had ridden round the Drissa fortifications with the Emperor and had pointed out to him that this fortified camp constructed by Pfuel, and till then considered a chef-d'oeuvre of tactical science which would ensure Napoleon's destruction, was an absurdity, threatening the destruction of the Russian army.
A board was found, fixed on two saddles and covered with a horsecloth, a small samovar was produced and a cellaret and half a bottle of rum, and having asked Mary Hendrikhovna to preside, they all crowded round her.
Now he rode beside Ilyin under the birch trees, occasionally plucking leaves from a branch that met his hand, sometimes touching his horse's side with his foot, or, without turning round, handing a pipe he had finished to an hussar riding behind him, with as calm and careless an air as though he were merely out for a ride.
On all sides, the hussars were busy with the dragoons; one was wounded, but though his face was bleeding, he would not give up his horse; another was perched up behind an hussar with his arms round him; a third was being helped by an hussar to mount his horse.
The countess looked round several times at her daughter's softened face and shining eyes and prayed God to help her.
A middle-aged man, handsome and virile, in the uniform of a retired naval officer, was speaking in one of the rooms, and a small crowd was pressing round him.
Pierre went up to the circle that had formed round the speaker and listened.
One of the old men nearest to him looked round, but his attention was immediately diverted by an exclamation at the other side of the table.
The Emperor ceased speaking, the crowd began pressing round him, and rapturous exclamations were heard from all sides.
But as soon as he had left the room the old prince, looking uneasily round, threw down his napkin and went himself.
He was a stout, dark, red- faced peasant in the forties, with thick lips, a broad knob of a nose, similar knobs over his black frowning brows, and a round belly.
We're not dogs, said the ex-captain of police, and looking round he noticed Alpatych.
A small watchdog ran round barking in front of the harnessed horses.
Several people came round the corner talking eagerly.
At that moment the pitiful wailing of women was heard from different sides, the frightened baby began to cry, and people crowded silently with pale faces round the cook.
He longed to get into that water, however dirty it might be, and he glanced round at the pool from whence came sounds of shrieks and laughter.
One fair-haired young soldier of the third company, whom Prince Andrew knew and who had a strap round the calf of one leg, crossed himself, stepped back to get a good run, and plunged into the water; another, a dark noncommissioned officer who was always shaggy, stood up to his waist in the water joyfully wriggling his muscular figure and snorted with satisfaction as he poured the water over his head with hands blackened to the wrists.
At last we have a man! said he, glancing sternly and significantly round at everyone in the drawing room.
Rostov was just mounting to go for a ride round the neighboring villages with Ilyin; he let Lavrushka have another horse and took him along with him.
She ran up to him and, in the play of the sunlight that fell in small round spots through the shade of the lime-tree avenue, could not be sure what change there was in his face.
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.
No one replied and Princess Mary, looking round at the crowd, found that every eye she met now was immediately dropped.
"Yes, they worked all day and didn't play!" remarked the tall, round- faced peasant gravely, pointing with a significant wink at the dictionaries that were on the top.
He pulled himself together, looked round, screwing up his eyes, glanced at Prince Andrew, and, evidently not recognizing him, moved with his waddling gait to the porch.
Come along... said he, glancing wearily round, and he stepped onto the porch which creaked under his weight.
On his way home from Vorontsovo, as he was passing the Bolotnoe Place Pierre, seeing a large crowd round the Lobnoe Place, stopped and got out of his trap.
The clerk glanced round, evidently hoping that his joke would be appreciated.
His having moved his troops there is only a ruse; he will probably pass round to the right of the Moskva.
The crowd round the icon suddenly parted and pressed against Pierre.
With a long overcoat on his exceedingly stout, round-shouldered body, with uncovered white head and puffy face showing the white ball of the eye he had lost, Kutuzov walked with plunging, swaying gait into the crowd and stopped behind the priest.
But if you want to ride round the position, come along with us.
I should like to start from the Moskva River and ride round the whole position.
Kutuzov noticed Pierre's figure and the group gathered round him.
The officers gazed with surprise at Pierre's huge stout figure and listened to his talk of Moscow and the position of our army, round which he had ridden.
The fact is that those men with whom you have ridden round the position not only do not help matters, but hinder.
His eyes grew dim, he moved forward, glanced round at a chair (which seemed to place itself under him), and sat down on it before the portrait.
He ordered the portrait to be carried outside his tent, that the Old Guard, stationed round it, might not be deprived of the pleasure of seeing the King of Rome, the son and heir of their adored monarch.
"Yes, I'll come with you," replied Pierre, looking round for his groom.
A young round-faced officer, quite a boy still and evidently only just out of the Cadet College, who was zealously commanding the two guns entrusted to him, addressed Pierre sternly.
"To your places!" cried the young officer to the men gathered round Pierre.
In this way two cavalry regiments galloped through the Semenovsk hollow and as soon as they reached the top of the incline turned round and galloped full speed back again.
But he sent an adjutant to take the news round the army.
On the other table, round which many people were crowding, a tall well-fed man lay on his back with his head thrown back.
A great crowd of generals gathered round him, and Count Rostopchin, who had come out from Moscow, joined them.
He had a St. George's Cross round his neck and looked pale and ill.
It is done in all the brothels, and with these words Marya Dmitrievna, turning up her wide sleeves with her usual threatening gesture and glancing sternly round, moved across the room.
An old gentleman wearing a star and another official, a German wearing a cross round his neck, approached the speaker.
"Altogether such heroism as was displayed by the Russian warriors cannot be imagined or adequately praised!" said Berg, glancing round at Natasha, and as if anxious to conciliate her, replying to her intent look with a smile.
The countess glanced at her daughter, saw her face full of shame for her mother, saw her agitation, and understood why her husband did not turn to look at her now, and she glanced round quite disconcerted.
The wounded dragged themselves out of their rooms and stood with pale but happy faces round the carts.
Efim, the old coachman, who was the only one the countess trusted to drive her, sat perched up high on the box and did not so much as glance round at what was going on behind him.
Kutuzov himself had driven round by side streets to the other side of Moscow.
The bees circle round a queenless hive in the hot beams of the midday sun as gaily as around the living hives; from a distance it smells of honey like the others, and bees fly in and out in the same way.
Shouldn't we put a cordon round to prevent the rest from running away?
Several shopkeepers crowded round the officer.
The gates and shops were all closed, only here and there round the taverns solitary shouts or drunken songs could be heard.
Mavra Kuzminichna opened the gate and an officer of eighteen, with the round face of a Rostov, entered the yard.
On benches round the tables in a dirty little room sat some ten factory hands.
A crowd gathered round the bloodstained smith.
By the wall of China-Town a smaller group of people were gathered round a man in a frieze coat who held a paper in his hand.
When the crowd collected round him he seemed confused, but at the demand of the tall lad who had pushed his way up to him, he began in a rather tremulous voice to read the sheet from the beginning.
The superintendent of police turned round at that moment with a scared look, said something to his coachman, and his horses increased their speed.
And as he spoke he saw a young man coming round the corner of the house between two dragoons.
"Ah!" cried Vereshchagin in meek surprise, looking round with a frightened glance as if not understanding why this was done to him.
Hearing the yell the officer turned round, and at the same moment Pierre threw himself on the drunkard.
Two of the gazers went round to the other side of the coach and sat down on its steps.
The woman's husband, a short, round- shouldered man in the undress uniform of a civilian official, with sausage-shaped whiskers and showing under his square-set cap the hair smoothly brushed forward over his temples, with expressionless face was moving the trunks, which were placed one on another, and was dragging some garments from under them.
He ran round to the other side of the lodge and was about to dash into that part of it which was still standing, when just above his head he heard several voices shouting and then a cracking sound and the ring of something heavy falling close beside him.
One of these, a nimble little man, was wearing a blue coat tied round the waist with a rope.
The other, whose appearance particularly struck Pierre, was a long, lank, round-shouldered, fair-haired man, slow in his movements and with an idiotic expression of face.
"Let that woman alone!" exclaimed Pierre hoarsely in a furious voice, seizing the soldier by his round shoulders and throwing him aside.
Shouts of approval were heard from the crowd around, and at the same moment a mounted patrol of French uhlans appeared from round the corner.
A crowd had collected round the uhlans.
Prince Vasili sternly declaimed, looking round at his audience as if to inquire whether anyone had anything to say to the contrary.
In the Petersburg world this sad side of the affair again involuntarily centered round a single incident: Kutaysov's death.
He took the boy on his knee, played with him, and looked round at Princess Mary.
Pierre looked round at his fellow prisoners and scrutinized them.
Then he took out a knife, cut something, closed the knife, placed it under the head of his bed, and, seating himself comfortably, clasped his arms round his lifted knees and fixed his eyes on Pierre.
When Pierre saw his neighbor next morning at dawn the first impression of him, as of something round, was fully confirmed: Platon's whole figure--in a French overcoat girdled with a cord, a soldier's cap, and bast shoes--was round.
His head was quite round, his back, chest, shoulders, and even his arms, which he held as if ever ready to embrace something, were rounded, his pleasant smile and his large, gentle brown eyes were also round.
While talking to Princess Mary he continually looked round as if asking everyone whether he was doing the right thing.
The princess looked round and saw Natasha coming in, almost running-- that Natasha whom she had liked so little at their meeting in Moscow long since.
She set herself a task on her stocking and resolved not to turn round till it was finished.
What a nuisance it is! thought the officer, and he rode round the whole camp.
But when not on duty they will only wear a red ribbon round the left arm.
Its furry tail stood up firm and round as a plume, its bandy legs served it so well that it would often gracefully lift a hind leg and run very easily and quickly on three legs, as if disdaining to use all four.
A beard and mustache covered the lower part of his face, and a tangle of hair, infested with lice, curled round his head like a cap.
Speak to the captain when he makes his round, he will do anything for you.
"You see, dear man, this is not a sewing shop, and I had no proper tools; and, as they say, one needs a tool even to kill a louse," said Platon with one of his round smiles, obviously pleased with his work.
The sick soldier, Sokolov, pale and thin with dark shadows round his eyes, alone sat in his place barefoot and not dressed.
Pierre, girt with a rope round his waist and wearing shoes Karataev had made for him from some leather a French soldier had torn off a tea chest and brought to have his boots mended with, went up to the sick man and squatted down beside him.
We must ride round more to the left....
He looked round at the captive drummer boy and felt a pang in his heart.
* When an officer is making his round, sentinels don't ask him for the password....
There was a stir among the officers in the shadow beyond the fire, and one tall, long-necked officer, walking round the fire, came up to Dolokhov.
Petya rode beside him, longing to look round to see whether or not the French were running after them, but not daring to.
Petya recognized the sound of Russian voices and saw the dark figures of Russian prisoners round their campfires.
And the Cossacks looked round in surprise at the sound, like the yelp of a dog, with which Denisov turned away, walked to the wattle fence, and seized hold of it.
Several officers formed a group and some soldiers crowded round them.
Karataev looked at Pierre with his kindly round eyes now filled with tears, evidently wishing him to come near that he might say something to him.
Pierre did not look round again but went limping up the hill.
They beat the tattoo, called the roll, had supper, and settled down round the fires for the night--some repairing their footgear, some smoking pipes, and some stripping themselves naked to steam the lice out of their shirts.
"Right enough, friend," said he, and, having sat down, took out of his knapsack a scrap of blue French cloth, and wrapped it round his foot.
Morel, a short sturdy Frenchman with inflamed and streaming eyes, was wearing a woman's cloak and had a shawl tied woman fashion round his head over his cap.
He was evidently tipsy, and was singing a French song in a hoarse broken voice, with an arm thrown round the nearest soldier.
A minute later the old man's large stout figure in full-dress uniform, his chest covered with orders and a scarf drawn round his stomach, waddled out into the porch.
Now a smile at the joy of life always played round his lips, and sympathy for others, shone in his eyes with a questioning look as to whether they were as contented as he was, and people felt pleased by his presence.
Again the princess glanced round at her companion with even more uneasiness in her manner and was about to add something, but Pierre interrupted her.
It is not Napoleon who prepares himself for the accomplishment of his role, so much as all those round him who prepare him to take on himself the whole responsibility for what is happening and has to happen.
Countess Mary looked round, saw little Andrew following her, felt that Sonya was right, and for that very reason flushed and with evident difficulty refrained from saying something harsh.
In her absence Nicholas allowed himself to give his little daughter a gallop round the room.
All the grown-up members of the family were assembled near the round tea table at which Sonya presided beside the samovar.
They might just figure I'm a whack case or worse yet, want to round you up and stuff you in their back office.
Yeah. I'd like nothing more than to round them all up into a stadium and wipe 'em clean.
She trailed him up the stairs, taking in every inch of his perfectly round butt to his slender hips and thick back.
Her first thought was that he was sending her to Death as a means of torturing her or at least, nailing home the point that he had won this round with Gabriel.
The roadway was gravel, but well maintained on a year-round basis.
He lifted a small soul-tracking device off the table, a round compass whose edges were lined with symbols from a dead language too old for him to read.
The massive lake was roughly round with a panhandle on the side nearest the fortress.
After all, he spent much time here, making love to her on the round bed down the hallway to his left.
He was going to win this round against Fate, Darkyn and anyone else who stood between him, the underworld and his mate.
The kid was adorable, with dark eyes and hair, sun-kissed skin, and a round face.
They even had a version of bread; it was unleavened and came in large, round, flat ears.
A round table in the center had an access pad attached to the top, so she passed her armband over it.
I saw it, with its two round sacks tied tightly and men standing nearby with their hats off.
Mick, trailing behind with Penny, called over his shoulder, "Why don't you just round up all of Shipton's enemies, rent a stadium and interview them?"
Lana drew a deep breath and placed the clothing in the round dryer in the linen closet before returning to the living room.
"Demon?" she echoed and burst into a new round of crying.
It was a one-round night and he was home before 11:00.
Just then the third round of drinks arrived, apparently as a result of a nod to the waiter by Cynthia Byrne.
"The trees bloom year round for you," Jule said, following his gaze.
Looks like I finally won a round, he said then motioned to the cheeseburger.
She was shorter, for one, toned and shapely, with round hips and large breasts, and a tucked waist.
"And that's just what I shall do if you don't let those little balls of pork alone," said Jim, glaring at the kitten with his round, big eyes.
Here was her round head, covered with pretty curls.
Next round: nine kids, eight chairs.
The men crowded together round the campfires.
The hussars and Cossacks crowded round the prisoners; one offered them clothes, another boots, and a third bread.
When he saw Natasha he waved his arms despairingly and burst into convulsively painful sobs that distorted his soft round face.
The French, avoiding the Russians, dispersed and hid themselves in the forest by night, making their way round as best they could, and continued their flight.
I will call round in case you have any commissions for me, said he, standing before Princess Mary and turning red, but not taking his departure.
"Always the same thing," said Pierre, looking round at his listeners.
She couldn't determine if she'd won this round or not.
A small round table and two chairs were placed in a corner near the doorway to the family room, providing a view of the fireplace.
