A few seconds later Alex answered the phone.
Seconds literally ticked away on the old grandfather clock in the next room.
Seconds later it crashed into the trees below.
She counted the seconds in tense silence, waiting for the sound of an explosion, but the only sound was a car approaching from below.
In seconds a small script appeared.
"Still under five seconds," she said with a sultry smile.
Within seconds, his head flew across the room.
"You have about sixty seconds before we're both fighting for our lives," she warned.

"You have thirty seconds, sweetheart," Jule said with a calmness that chilled her to the bone.
Within seconds, all four of them were watching her like lions a wounded gazelle.
She waited another few seconds for a catch before letting herself believe him.
The grandfather clock in the hall ticked away the seconds and chimed.
They waited, and after a few seconds there was the distinct sound of movement above them.
"You've got sixty seconds," he told her.
It'll take a few seconds only.
Seconds ticked by as she stared at him in shocked silence.
Behind them the red-headed man followed for only a few seconds before turning back toward the house.
Sometimes, a night in the underworld was equal to seconds in the mortal world, sometimes a night and sometimes, a few nights.
All it took was a few seconds for her to fall under Wynn's influence.

For seconds he was frozen to move toward her, knowing in his heart it was too late.
The seconds ticked as they braced for the worse.
Within seconds, she had decapitated him and sent the disembodied head soaring across the room.
Within seconds the one hoof was visible again and the doe was screaming in agony.
The kitchen clock ticked off thirty seconds before she put down her fork and pushed away from the table.
We'll have a few seconds to blast the door without affecting the rest of the networks.
A few seconds later, he heard the shower.
The two seconds you have with your mate before the Dark One unleashes demons across the mortal realm?
After a few seconds he handed the detective the telephone.
She stared at him for several seconds, and then bristled, But there's more, isn't there?
Katie dashed off and was back seconds later, frantically pushing it firmly into place.
A few seconds lapsed before she realized that someone had skipped a stone.
It took a few seconds for the import of his words to sink in.

Within seconds he was absorbed in the evening paper.
